here's the latest sanguine relic release, just received today.

everything released by both the artist and label have been fantastic so far and this is no exception.

sanguine relic have always struck the perfect lo-fi chord, at least for me...harsh and raw, but with unrelenting, memorable riffs that somehow manage to surface despite the grime and decay.

this is exactly what I was hoping for and I'm looking forward to absorbing this as the daylight dissipates and the cold moves in.

long-since sold out on cassette, the vinyl version from skjold disappeared in something like fifteen minutes, as it did every other distro, as well.

keep an eye on discogs, this one comes highly recommended.

super raw (and short) rehearsal tape from akurazbrukk, a new perverse homage entity.

the sound on this one is pretty rough but it's still monstrous. 

new perverse homage tapes were just released and have already sold out...ditto for those skjold records.

will be posting those new ones once they're received...

(a)sex - shoot me, dearest.



(A)Sex - Shoot Me, Dearest

1. Untitled



new release from (a)sex on VCTM MPCT.

probably some of the most intense packaging I've seen in a long time, and it's a perfect match for the audio.

this is obviously a very personal and cathartic recording...extremely impacting in a way that few noises releases can match.

while so many noise artists eschew substance in favor of what they perceive as "shocking" imagery, mitchell really puts himself out there on each and every release.

it's one of many reasons why I respect him and his work so much.

this one was limited to 25 copies and is long gone, but check out this new label's other releases - plenty of great stuff worth your money.

unholy vampyric slaughter sect - canticle bound in spirit - the faith in vampyric blood.



Unholy Vampyric Slaughter Sect - Canticle Bound In Spirit - The Faith In Vampyric Blood

18:29

40.76 MB

1. In The Blood There Is No Quiet
2. The Flesh Is A Tomb I Shall Not Want
3. Drawn From The Rose Pillar
4. And I Shall Come To Thee As An Iron Wolf
5. Follow Me Through Thine Dream Of Dying Orchids
6. Upon My Tears The More She Wept In The Ivory Light Of The Moon



great stuff right here.

fresh from the latest perverse homage batch, this is the longest UVSS tape yet, with a slightly more refined sound and a real sense of purpose.

the ambient portions do exactly what they need to do, and that little hint of melody really pushes it over the edge.

don't misunderstand - that raw brutality is still here in spades, but the variety of sounds really help the more violent sections stand out.

copies should be arriving at analog worship and found remains soon, so keep an eye out.

highest recommendation.

forbidden citadel of spirits is a raw, lo-fi australian black metal band with ties to carved cross, blackline, drowning the light, and more.

released recently by skjold, this double lp collects split material from 2007 - 2013.

I love all of this stuff, and while metal archives lists them as active, forbidden citadel of spirits haven't released anything new in four years now...really hoping that gets remedied soon.

as with all skjold releases, this one was gone instantly...I managed to get a copy from analog worship, and I know their copies sold out in a matter of minutes, too...

and skjold doesn't have a newsletter, makes no announcements about on sale dates or times, and does a great job of making releases difficult to obtain...

but I guess that's a nice challenge?

regardless of scarcity, this compilation is great and comes highly recommended.

new skjold releases from unholy vampyric slaughter sect and sanguine relic are coming sometime this summer, so keep an eye on the storefront.




(watch out for skjold.)

Lampir - Demo II

1. Intro
2. Lampir Awakening
3. Forgotten Arts Of Penetration
4. Blood Cries To Eternal Sickness



this is the second pressing of the second demo (duh) from lampir, courtesy of perverse homage.

I missed the first pressing while shooting something that I really hope comes to fruition so that I can share it with all of you...but I digress.

straightforward, lo-fi, all of that good stuff we look for in "trve" black metal.

if you enjoyed the first demo, you'll enjoy this one, too.

all of the releases in the latest perverse homage batch were really strong, so I'm eagerly anticipating that next unholy vampiric slaughter sect tape.
