FY#74 THE UPSIDEDOWN FLAMES "creeps at shows" 7"
FY#75 SLOTH (a death metal" 7"
FY#71 PROPOVED "onaj koji niko jeste" 12"
PROPOVED is personification of ancient heavy metal/ doom of obscured underground caliber.
As if frozen in time, PROPOVED are uncontaminated by trendiness or modernization- both in their rustic 80's-alike performance and their approach to themes of Slavic folklore. Inspired by medieval Balkan heresies and schisms, PROPOVED play their music with an anxious feel and primitive integrity that is magnetic and spellbinding.
A precious gem of true heavy doom for those enchanted by the acts of NIGRO MANTIA, PAGAN ALTAR, early CANDLEMASS, HELLHAMMER, AMEBIX...
FY#70 DAŽD "krv i seme" LP
Primordial ritualistic punk metal yielded from the blood-soaked soil of Serbia insane.
DAŽD is authentic Balkan spite and spit in the face of imperialism; a ritual of the tribes guarding the flames below- combusting dogma into powers unprecedented through an occult frenzy.
Promethean crust for eternal warriors- ARISE!
Adherents of AMEBIX, KILLING JOKE, CURRENT 93, PENTAGRAM, ISENGARD, MAYHEM- heed!
FY#69 RIDE FOR REVENGE "chapter of alchemy" 2xLP
Authoritative, bewitched and hellion metal- FUCK!
An urgent call of infernal response- unambiguous and strict- defiling the court of mercy
To communicate darkness with morbid brilliance...
The collection consists of "the renegade temple" EP, splits with TORTURIUM and METI BHUVAH, and compilation songs exclusive to METAL ON METAL III, HELVETIN MUSTA PETO, GRAVE COMMAND and THE LOST TAPES OF BESTIAL BURST; a total of 66 minutes
FY#68 ZEITNOT 8"
Macedonian atavistic krautnoise freakout at it's rawest and most-imminent.
A dive forward in the slough-stream of surrogate consciousness; perpetuating the inmost qualities of PSYCHIC TV mid-80's live releases, THE STOOGES "freak" and LES RALLIZES DENUDES.
This is a 20-minute valiant, shape-shifting and uncanny journey with not even ZEITNOT behind the wheel.
FY#67 ЌЕ ДА Е ЃАОЛО (KJE DA E GJAOLO) 7"
YES- we is the insalubrious progeny of the Heavens Defiled- an eerie frown upon lesser than perverted metal!
YES- we is the intoxication evaporating from the Black Mass of Absu- a rogue celebration!
YES- we is the degenerate clairvoyants- crucifucked and fermented on the Upsidedown Cross!
(thrice acknowledged in rooster's blood)
||FY#66 RIDE FOR REVENGE "the king of snakes" LP
Glorification of primeval maleficent powers through music so primitive and poised- yet insanely advanced and dangerous.
Drums are throbbing in enchanted dignity, hailing the wicked tribes with hypnotic pulsation- provoking a condition imperative to comprehend the message.
Guitars slither low- a pathfinder through labyrinthine ditches of depravity- determined and unstoppable.
Utterly demented by demonic libation, a voice obsesses over visions of supernatural lust, judgment and sacrifice- recognize the mechanics of uprising!
Night takes over and these are the nocturnal metamorphosis that follow...
||FY#65 VERMILION DEVIATE "kriza / the vision is lost" 7"
This VERMILION DEVIATE 7" is a case of more precious pearls coming out of the Macedonian archive, and once again reveals how Macedonia was just as inventive as other better-advertised factories of Ex-Yugoslavia’s subcultural sonic experiments. Both tracks on here are pounding, anthemic, and mix a 1980s baggage of post-punk, goth and angst-rock with a luscious maximalism that pleasantly reveal their early ‘90s origins. “Kriza” is a slow 7-minute manifesto filled with a frozen sense of doom, in which Zlatko Trajkovski’s nihilistic crooning is reminiscent of BORGHESIA circa "Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti", lifted by Eleonora Stojanovikj’s soulfulness which seems to give the track its corporeality. “Vision is Lost” starts as a BAUHAUS-esque galop, all swirvy bass and screaming guitars, and ends on a totally epic duet of sampled voices and neurotic drums – the last 40 seconds of the track are pure gold. But the most fascinating thing about these tracks is how explicitly political they feel now, both in their lyrics and in their performance, seemingly using their mysticism, intelligence, nervous dismay and even their elegance as some kind of call for change. God knows what VERMILION DEVIATE were actually thinking, but judging from the archival performance videos also dug out in occasion of this release – an intoxicating succession of bare painted chests, dim purple lighting, objects on fire and religious icons projected onto plastic sheeting – they deserve to be taken seriously. (Flora Pitrolo, A COLDER CONSCIOUSNESS)
||FY#64 BURMESE "privileged" LP
BURMESE provides peerless entertainment for an aficionado of the extreme. 13 counts of blunt mental traumas exclaimed in a form both vulgar and elegant- entrancingly toying with nauseating (a)symmetry.
Two bass guitars battling for dominance in ecstasy. Two drums painstakingly conducting a beat of frenzied violence; be it militaristic vignettes or full-on grinding. Two vocals topping each other in a deathclutch.
A high-speed thrashnoise/ moribund no-wave triumph; freaks into early NAPALM DEATH/ SWANS/ WHITEHOUSE- recognize!
||FY#63 CHARITY SAINTS s/t 8" EP
Expanding upon a melange of music that lurked the dim corners of the 80's underground characterized with industrialized repetition, singular vision and acute impact (SWANS, KILLING JOKE, BRAINBOMBS), CHARITY SAINTS of Finland- debut victoriously.
Entrancing, restrained guitar phrases (subtly seasoned for unease) synced to cold, concrete drumming- the singing is masculine, melodic and menacing- complementing the somber and elegant depiction of this EP.
||FY#62 LEGION OF ANDROMEDA "fistful of hate" LP
TOTALITARIAN MUSICK OF SAVAGES
COSMO-HAMMER HATE-BEAT BARRAGE
DEHUMANIZED, ABSOLUTE AND PREPARED
MONOCHROMATIC INDUSTRIALIZED HORROR (ALTERNATIVE SOUNDTRACK OF TETSUO: IRON MAN)
EXTREME METAL/CYBER PUNK
A FISTFUL OF HATE (MOTHERFUCKER)
||FY#61 TRANSHUNTER 8"
To hardcore collectors seeking the unusual: of dehumanization and obscured ecstasies through industrialized metal. TRANSHUNTER is suitable for netherworldly war and from Macedonia.
||FY#60 MOSS "sinister history: volume I, chapter 2" LP
"VENOM is killing music... HELLHAMMER is killing VENOM... MOSS killed HELLHAMMER"
Onward in the cave! The second chapter of exposing necrolatrian relics is here...
Stretching the extreme attributes of doom, MOSS has disclosed some of the most oppressive, demoralizing and ghastly music.
Macrocosmic caveman crust? Still-born funeral doom? MOSS is true, raw and fucked up!
||FY#59 RIDE FOR REVENGE/ SATANIC TORMENT split 7"
Under the banner of molestification (the Finnish way), the forces of RIDE FOR REVENGE and SATANIC TORMENT have united to affirm the power of metal.
It is cruel and spiteful; primitive and deadly- urgh!!!
||FY#58 DEPRESSOR 1995 LP
Industrialized crust/deathrock extending upon the bleak, dystopian visions of early GODFLESH and PITCH SHIFTER.
"During its highest achievements, Depressor repurpose Sabbath scrap into moments of meaning for those staring further down an arc of decline that their descendant riff patterns prophesied rather than perceived. Adept, effective and simplistic motifs are both well considered and carefully placed to give each note a weight of significance that paints a flurry of images which are given definition by nuanced industrial outlines. The rhythms operate in two essential modes: a flurry of electronic inheritance that strides closes next to dance music and the painful pulsing of automated impoverishment. Naturally, the former are used to drive the chase down the fracturing highways and crumbling infrastructure left in malign neglect while the latter pulses with the maddening violence of mechanical motion as it echoes across a sprawl of slowly crumbling skyscrapers. The human voice, worn from chord roughing debris, recalls Justin Broderick as readily as it reminds of UK crusters Doom to give indignant sermons that are annotated with misanthropic anguish."
||FY#56/57 COME TO GRIEF "the worst of times" LP/CD
COME TO GRIEF represents the epitome of sludge in all it's subterennean splendor.
Hand-of-doom sculpted filth that oozes with terminal disgust of life- depression and madness being the only companions delivering you to the Master.
||FY#55 TRANSHUNTER s/t LP
A valorous automatic bridging of distant inhuman conditions and forging them in an alchemic weapon of salvation, for some.
(ABRUPTUM. BEHERIT. COIL. DEAD CAN DANCE... HELLHAMMER... SPK)
||FY#54 GOLI DECA "mania" LP
Articulating the notion of brutalism through motions of regal repetition- the goal is to break through and survive by all means necessary. Hyper-real music for the body and mind.
6 songs that evoke the authority of early/mid SWANS and Macedonian 80's dark wave of PADOT NA VIZANTIJA and MIZAR- yet still belonging in the present.
||FY#53 GRIEF - "depression" 12"
Slow, utterly depressing and mysanthropic doom- the record that
started it all. 4 songs twisting the style of SABBATH
and VITUS further down the spiral of physical and
mental decay- a testament of the human downfall.
Remastered for vinyl by Jack Control at ENORMOUS
DOOR MASTERING and pressed on 45 rpm 12" for maximum
||FY#51/52 GRIEF - "dismal" 12"/CD
Pure filth fueled by mysanthropy and inner segregation
has been immortalized on GRIEF's "dismal",
a record recognized as a benchmark in extreme music. HEAVY riffs
and damaged, painful shrieks spew thoughts of alienation and self-hatred;
primitive drums and bass complement the despodent ambience.
Truely a genre-defining release, available for the first time since
it's original release in 1992. Featuring the original artwork, remastered
for both vinyl and CD by Jack Control at ENORMOUS DOOR MASTERING
and pressed on 45 rpm 12" for maximum results.
CD includes 2 bonus tracks originally appearing on the split 7"
||FY#50 MOSS - "sinister history, volume
one: chapter 1" LP
This is absolute doom- total nauseous emanations
from beneathbelow. True, raw and fucked up.
Excavation of necrolatrian relics from the dawn of this millennia
Artwork courtesy of BVRZERK, mastered by Jack Control at ENORMOUS
||FY#49 NEW WORLD "jigoku no dantoudai" 3"/4"
Japan noisecore- the old WORLD is dead, this is NEW WORLD! A systematic sensory intrusion in 7 movements
||FY#48 BILLY BAO - "communisation"
This is literally a fucked up record.
Here you have all the classics traces of a Billy Bao record (freaky
punk, digital fuckery, conceptual disturbances, anger and desperation)
but pushed so far to the point that it generates physical destruction:
at the end of side A there is a digital sonification of the economic
flash crash that was provoked by high frequency trading on the stock
market in 2010. Its negativity has been inscribed into the actual
situation of making this record as this sonic transcription burned
the head of the cutter while the lacquer was being cut. Who knows?
Perhaps this is Billy Bao's way to improvise with the means of production!
If on side B you can hear the results of cutting this record with
a fucked head (the weird high pitch, for example), there is also
the sound of a music emanating from a group of people who will not
let market forces dictate their future.
Out of the ruins of destroyed rock, some other kind of irreputable
music emerges in order to roughen the surface of a contested present.
||FY#47 NOOTHGRUSH - "entropy"
With style reserved only for the true scholars of doom, NOOTHGRUSH
offer their latest rendering- a micro/macro requiem EP.
This release presents NOOTHGRUSH at their most refined; the songs
are immensely paced in relation to the lyrical content, opting
for acceptance of decay, and ultimately death. The restraint and
respect NOOTGRUSH treat their instruments with is magnanimously
rewarded in the final outcome, adding to the seriousness and depth
of their conclusion.
Recorded and mixed at EARHAMMER STUDIOS and mastered at AUDIOSIEGE
for maximum sonic impact.
||FY#46 APARTMENT 213 - "cleveland power
Since their inception over 20 years ago in Cleveland, Ohio-
APARTMENT 213 has represented embodiment of inbred brutality and
all things wrong. Stompy, metallic hardcore that has been distilled
to satisfy the finest standards. This is unforgiving, confronting,
fighting music- the end of the road.
Album includes collaborations with LOCKWELD and BASTARD NOISE.
||FY44/45 - SETE STAR SEPT - "sacrifice"
The second album of SETE
STAR SEPT is a rapturous evidence of the non-preventable
evolution of noise. It is elusive to the shape of grindcore, yet
profoundly rooted in its motive. Upgrading the inhuman technical
performance and exploiting spiritual sickness, SETE STAR
SEPT have recorded an album that while having little reference
to traditional form, represents an undisputed masterpiece of extreme
music. Grinding noise of the highest order for the mentally bankrupt.
||FY43 - HERPES - "medellin" 7"
Raw and fucked up death/noise
metal. Trance-like and violent. A hermetic composition of gaping
chaos and contrived unease.
||FY42 - ATAQUE DE SONIDO - s/t 7"
Extreme hardcore punk. Aggressive
and real. Barbaric clutch of politics against meek life.
||FY40 - SETE STAR SEPT - "vinyl collection
SETE STAR SEPT are the finest purveyors of
avantgarde noise/grind in our age. This is an antithesis of normality
based on the vast history of Japanese extreme music. Exhilarating,
draining and autistic noise.
Over the last two years, SETE STAR SEPT have focused
on putting out a slew of releases; this collection features the
vinyl output: split 12" w/ GENERIC DEATH,
split 10 w/ NOISE, split 7" w/ PENIS
GEYSER, split 7" w/ CSMD, split 7"
w/ SATAN, split 7" w/ ROTGUT,
4-way split 7", "gero me" 10" and a live set
from KFJC, clocking in at 75 minutes total.
||FY39 - NOOTHGRUSH/ SUPPRESSION - split
After 14 years of delay, the
split single between NOOTHGRUSH and SUPPRESSION
is out today.
NOOTHGRUSH have managed to compress an elaborate
piece of doom on their side; trademark crushing crusty riffing complemented
by caveman drums, heavy bass and narration fueled by disgust make
for one sick, sick song.
SUPPRESSION open the flip side with a mental power
electronics section leading to a grinding hardcore tune, heavy on
the freak sauce.
Sludge, noise and brutal hardcore- this split is a time travel trip
to the mid-90's mutant underground as presented by two of it's most
||FY38 - DEPRESSOR - "filth/grace"
Apocalyptic deathcrust conceived midst the urban decay of Oakland,
expanding upon the machine-like dirges of early GODFLESH and PITCHSHIFTER
with the socially aware attitude akin to AMEBIX and AXEGRINDER.
The "filth/grace" LP represent the earliest incarnation
of DEPRESSOR, originally available as two home-dubbed cassettes-
"filth" and "grace" (1995 and 1997, respectively)-
available only in underground tape-trading circuits. This release
sounds as vital as ever both due to the masterful songwriting skills
and the true motives behind the songs.
Available in 400 black copies and 100 purple, with a foil-stamped
||FY37 - SETESTARSEPTSEPTSEPT - "kaama-dhaatu"
Japan's premium noisegrind purveyors
SETE STAR SEPT deliver 15 loosely-joined micro
compositions based on the absolute monarchy/desire principle. SETE
STAR SEPT are exploiting themselves in an abusive manner
on this anti normal record.

artwork by Vlajke/ATENTAT NA SLUH.
||FY36 - CULT OF THE 7 CROWNS - "land
of screwdom" volume 1 mixtape
Screwed and chopped, dragged and drugged remixes of
music played by members of the CULT OF THE SEVEN CROWNS.

direction playing cruel games with your nervous system. Nightmare
is reality is nightmare.

DEVIL, MOTHER FUCKING TITTY SUCKERS, THE DISCREET DOLL BAND, FOG
SPECTER- hail the Army of the Seven Crowns!
Cover by Pablo Cavero and Rebekikoo Topakian.
||FY34/35 - NOOTHGRUSH - s/t LP/CD
Crusty torturous doom, truly refined in it's execution.
Unlike the later releases that defined the sludge genre, this album
is leaning more towards the psychedelic side with clean, depressing
vocals in symbiosis with noise and moog synths- existing on the
territory between WINTER and HAWKWIND.
NOOTHGRUSH have recorded these songs shortly after
the band was conceived in 1994 and were released only on a handful
of cassettes. None of them appear on any other release except a
rearranged version of one song. The cover artwork is envisioned
and materialized as kind courtesy of Jason
||FY32/33 - OD VRATOT NADOLU - "ziva"
Depraved, sad and angry mutant
hardcore from Macedonia. OD VRATOT NADOLU have
crafted this album with primal urgency, yet delicate skills. The
style is unorthodox and focused, the content is violent and state-altering
resulting with a morbidly vivid cinematic-like experience. This
record would appeal to freaks into "desire for agony",
"the aftermath", "laid insignificant".
||FY30/31 - SETE STAR SEPT - "revision
of noise" LP/CD
Avantgarde grinding noise from Japan. Total delirious stream of
consciousness grinding, grotesque and uplifting. A 15 minute cathartic
blow out for freaks into "feto", "teenass
revolt", "sonicrime therapy".
||FY28 - ATENTAT NA SLUH - "nostalgija"
This is ultra violent noisecore from Belgrade,
Serbia. tainted thrashy guitars, intense primitive drumming and
bestial vocals in the back offering a bizarre, nightmarish trip.

KUOLEMA, PSYCHO SIN.
||FY27/29 - DAZD - s/t LP/CD
Existing in different shapes, DAZD
(Belgrade, Serbia) have been crafting their rituals under the sign
of libertarian mystic forces for almost 15 years.

horror, crusty thrash and heavy doom not unlike AMEBIX,
PENTAGRAM, GISM and HELLHAMMER.

||FY25 - MOSS - "eternal return"
Oppressive, primitive heavy metal- this is a hypnotic ode to the
||FY24 - BURMESE/ POTOP - split LP
BURMESE offer 8 ugly tracks of noise; ranging
from damaged rock to primitive grind bursts, sadistic power electronics
and cold, haunting drones; a claustrophobic amalgamation of frequencies
akin to MAN IS THE BASTARD, BRAINBOMBS
T ectonic grooves, blackened guitars and hellish screams make for
POTOP's side. primitive and crippled doom metal,
been compared to BURNING WITCH, KHANATE
and power violence without the fast parts. Heavy stuff for real.
||FY23/41 - DESPISE YOU - "west side
62 songs of hateful death core
from the streets of Inglewood, California. Bleak, cruel and relentless
in execution, this is a precious testament of urban decay and violence
written during the mid-90's.

IS THE BASTARD, split EPs with STAPLED SHUT,
SUPPRESSION and CROM, "pcp
scapegoat" EP and compilation tracks, with a total of 44 minutes.

mantra, occult punk/metal.

flip side with a lenghty metallic punk anthem. fresh and authentic,
take note if a fan of AMEBIX, HELLHAMMER,
||FY 21 - KURSK/ DAMAGE DIGITAL split 7"
KURSK (Canada) - organic
grinding hardcore with elaborate arrangements. a warm and melodic,
still amazingly heavy and piercing tone that brings to mind the
GORGUTS guitar work comparison, complemented by
the established skills of the ex-HEAD HITS CONCRETE
skinsman and sarah's painful shouts. KURSK walk
the road of genre-bending bands such as VOIVOD
and DAMAD, pushing the envelope of extreme hardcore.
DAMAGE DIGITAL (Japan) - premium thrashy grindcore,
an ultimate reminder of why i got into it- very raw and energetic,
following the tradition of their countrymen 324
and DISCORDANCE AXIS in making catchy yet extreme
grind. with this record DAMAGE DIGITAL mark their
13th anniversary of representing the finest in the underground grindcore
||FY20 - MAGRUDERGRIND/ SHITSTORM - split
This 24-track, 22-minute blasterpiece
showcases two of the most ferocious newcomers to the grind/powerviolence
scenes in many years.
MAGRUDERGRIND bring the scathing, thrash/crossover
influenced grinding mayhem while SHITSTORM (two
of the TORCHE guys) terrorize with gruffer, speed/death
metal-tinged destruction? together creating one of the most abrasive
split albums ever conceived. With no direct mimicry, these two young
trios manage to walk in the same shoes worn by grind greats like
DISCORDANCE AXIS and PIG DESTROYER, both
delivering absolutely pummeling performances with only the use of
guitar, drum and voice. That's right, no bass players are needed
for songs this short, fast and absolutely relentless... and no heavyness
is compromised with each band's best recordings to date and a fantastic
mastering job by West West Side. Top it all off with unbelievably
sick artwork from BARONESS' John Baizley, and you've
got a split undeniably destined for full-blown "classic"
