the rita - sharks and the female form.



The Rita - Sharks And The Female Form

29:12

65.47 MB

1. Untitled
2. Untitled


this new release from the rita comes in some stellar packaging...inserts featuring shark attack photographs and abstract art are paired with torn and blood-spattered women's bathing suit fragments to form a startling and immersive whole.

each side opens with audio of a woman describing a shark attack, followed by very textured yet brittle walls.

I haven't been listening to a ton of HNW lately but sam's work always manages to pull me back in. this one is out of stock from the label but reach out to sam via his blog, he might have a few copies left.

highly recommended.

various artists - häretischer kreis.




Various Artists - Häretischer Kreis

32:39

59.4 MB

1. Swine Soul - Violent Self-Spiraling Forever Towards Utter Oblivion
2. Immatura Morte - Exclamavit Autem Mortis...
3. Xzælthu - Untitled
4. Gormanudr - Ages Of Blood
5. Funerary Temple - Chanting Woes Through The Chambers Of Flesh



co-released by perverse homage and hatework, this compilation brings together a host of stellar artists for a sonically and aesthetically cohesive side of furious black metal.

a few of these artists were new to me, but everything here is great and this easily stands up as one of the finest compilations I've heard all year.

somehow, copies are still available from perverse homage...so grab one quickly and don't miss out.

hand of glory - to molest the dreaming...



Hand Of Glory - To Molest The Dreaming...

33:52

62.21 MB

1. Curses Of Nightgaunt Sorcery
2. Romancing The Corpses At Night
3. Death Vessel
4. Undecayed Dynasties Of Imperial Vampire
5. To Molest The Dreaming...
6. Ghostly Chambers In Soulless Chasm
7. Gruesome Esoteric Pedophilia



there are a couple of tape rips of this floating around in the corners of the internet, but this new vinyl pressing (and first release) from livor mortis with a remaster by lampir sounds so much better that I felt it was worth sharing.

hand of glory belongs to house of first light, a brooklyn-based black metal collective primarily responsible for releasing the works of lam, who's also behind sanguine eagle, amongst others.

check out more from house of first light, and be sure to keep an eye on livor mortis...shipping from finland to the united states is expensive, but the pressings are super limited and the curation is impeccable.

Carved Cross / Malphas

14:10

25.9 MB

1. Carved Cross - The Dawning Of Comprehension Underwhelms All Who Bask In Its Light
2. Malphas - Des Chaines De L'état
3. Malphas - Une Signe D'avenir




new split from the legendary carved cross and malphas, courtesy of tour de garde.

carved cross needs no introduction, but this was the first I'd heard of malphas and the material is really great...the easily-discernible riffs are very nice counterpoint to downtrodden murk of the carved cross track.

copies are somehow still available from the source, so grab one ASAP...very worthy of your hard-earned dollars.

volume two of this bacteria field compilation features many of the same artists as the first.

lots of great sonic textures here, from wild power electronics to ANW.

this is an intense release, from the audio to the presentation, which is exactly what we've all come to expect from bacteria field.

sold out from the source, keep an eye on discogs.

highly recommended.

lots of great stuff on black gangrene, don't know how this label flew under my radar for so long but glad that's been remedied...and this new perverse homage batch is expectedly great.

highly recommended.

Obsidian Forest - Demo 2017

18:23

34.88 MB

1. No Breeze Disturbs This Fetid Sanctuary
2. Among The Glittering Caverns
3. An Eternal Moonless Night
4. To Forever Leave The Presence Of The Sun


excellent demo from obsidian forest, courtesy of rapacious projections.

hauntingly melodic riffs and ghastly shrieks...my kind of stuff.

both the band and label seem fairly new, with only a handful of releases thus far, but definitely keep an eye on these two.
