    After two 7" singles (on Sacred Bones and Toxic State), a flexi and demos galore, Nuke York's ANASAZI finally unleash their debut album on La Vida Es Un Mus in Europe and Toxic State in America. 'Nasty Witch Rock' comes from the dirty, rotten and seedier side of New York. The album is built on raw energy, passion and intensity. The sound is blown out with distorted and echoey guitar work akin to Fire Of Love era GUN CLUB , pounding tribal drum patterns and a vocalist who oozes violence and desperation. If you have 'In The Flat Field' era BAUHAUS, TSOL or CHRISTIAN DEATH in your collection or loved it when the early 80's UK anarcho bands added a bit of goth edge to their sound then ANASAZI is a must hear. The 180 gsm vinyl comes housed in a heavy weight sleeve including a 16 page small booklet and an A1 poster.

  • Haldol continues to evolve and explore the many facets of deathrock and post-punk on their newly released 3rd LP “The Totalitarianism of Everyday Life”. It’s difficult to pigeonhole Haldol’s sound to one particular band or style, because with every song they evolve from the last and put new twists and turns onto their style. They’ve always tending to shy away from the mundane, predictable or anticipated structures and sounds of post-punk. Instead, they tend to draw musical inspiration from a farther flung range of styles and approaches. “The Totalitarianism of Everyday Life” is a sonically haunting, decomposing and pained album with bursts of layered noise aggression, constantly pushing forward and unyielding.

  • Three years after their second album “Return Of The Empire”, the italian Vampire punx combo returns with their new full length „New Wave of Fear’’. The tunes got darker and less punk than their previous releases but, all in all, the formula hasn’t changed too much, and, hell yeah, this is a concept album about life and death. The A side has been named “This Side” and deals with things that belong to the world we’re living (immigration, the rise of the extreme right wing parties, terror, life in general etc.). The B side has been named “Other Side” and it’s all dedicated about death. It’s a more intense record and definitely better than their old ones, and you can also hear the crusty roots of some of the members in their last song where Amebix and Fields Of The Nephilim meet in a no men’s land to face the end of it all.

  • KURRAKÄ | self titled | LP

    12.00 8.00 incl. tax

    A trio from Texas who build on the foundation of good old anarcho punk, but are adding a thrashing Spanish hardcore flavor to the mix. The overall feel I get is that this is pretty dark and gloomy, but sharp in it’s delivery – making it very interesting. Influences range from d-beat to death rock to anarcho punk, and it’s all there in the final result. It’s hard, it’s bouncy, it’s pissed, it’s hopeful… 10 tracks.
    "I’ve reviewed a lot of great records over the last few years, but I feel guilty as hell to come up with this review just now. KURRAKÄ’s self-titled LP was released in 2014 by Trabuc Records and I have tons of reasons to love this band and record. In these ten songs we’ve been trailed off in a complete pandemonium of raw aggression by a three piece all-female bearers of chaos coming from Austin, TX.
    The fierce vocals of Dru Molina (also in Criaturas) rip and rage in the Crudos school of thought, while the dark deathrock overtones remind me of the witty macabre of my all time favorite Rudimentary Peni. Lyrically the trio is screaming to the moon and casting spells about strength and women, shadows and spirits, blood and passion, chaos and freedom… Add to that the seething mass of buzzing raw punk guitars, pounding d-beat drumming and chaos magick symbolism, and you’ll have a masterpiece of an obscure hardcore punk record. I would love to get this on a 12″ LP (it’s been pressed on 400 copies in black vinyl and 100 copies in purple) and totally recommend you to check out not only Kurrakä’s recordings prior to their LP but also their fellow peers like Criaturas, Vaaska, and Impalers."

  • New edition, completely re-packaged and restyled with 2 booklets inside (30 pages)! One of the most essential discography releases in the whole history of Italian Punk, finally seeing the light after 4 years of hard strains and endless stalemates. NERORGASMO, the blackest and most sincere face of Torino's Dark/Punk nihilism in the '80s and early '90s, the true sound of urban decadence in the city that generated some of the most active and creative Punk/HC acts back in the "fuorious years" of Italian hardcore (think of NEGAZIONE, DECLINO, 5# BRACCIO etc). The CD is a complete collection of their recorded material, 39 songs, including their first legendary EP remastered from a 1st generation tape before it was pressed on vinyl (so you won't hear any old vinyl crackles), the 1993 album remastered from the studio DAT, 9 completely UNRELEASED studio tracks (1987) and a great selection of live footage 1986-1993. The DVD features their complete set live at Torino's El Paso in 1993, edited from different angles with image and sound remastered. Comes in a super-deluxe 8 panel digipak with double booklet including rare photos, lyrics and infos. Musically, this was a unique brand of blackened HC/Punk the Italian way crossed with some sinister Dark/Rock influences and the incredibly expressive vocals of Luca Abort (RIP) mixing rage with his sick sarcastic moods. Check the review on goodbadmusic.com: "Italy?s NERORGASMO (translates as ?Black Orgasm? ? wonderful!) released one of the darkest and most original sounding records of the 80s. Backwards message, weird sounds and ultra evil, CCM-like riffing, creating a sickly sweet atmosphere of lascivious cross-downturning. Just the way we love it so much! What is anarchy and subversion if there?s not some good old satanism involved." (F.O.A.D. Records)
  • This record is a pure death-rock gem ! It was originally released in 1984 on Red Rhino Records, and is now available again on vinyl, with the original demo song « Lies » as bonus track ! SKELETAL FAMILY formed in 1982 in keighley, UK. After a debut 7’’, the band signed a record deal and entered studio to record 10 tracks for a debut album called «Burning Oil» which remained in the top 10 of the UK charts for several months. Stan Greenwood superb melancholic guitar leads and Anne-Marie Hurst haunted voice made the band become a major Death-Rock / Gothic Rock act. They are very often listed as a big infuence by the new generation of post punk bands. High quality vinyl repress housed in black inner sleeve, thick outer sleeve and including insert sheet with band pictures. (Restless Empire Records)

  • From what I read on the liner notes this would appear to be The Executes one and only full length. Most people would remember them from the Split 12" with German punk's Inferno released on Pushead's label. This is way less thrashy than their earlier work and as with Gastunk they seem to have taken a large influence from UK heavy weights like the Southern Death Cult and Killing Joke. This is a great record for those sombre moments, it has a lot of really nice guitar work and some awesome vocals. "The Human of the Ghoul" now is that an awesome song title or what!! Originally released in 1988. (Harto De Todo Records/Unofficial)
  • Eleven Violet Dances features a selection of the best tracks from the early days of this pioneer post-punk / gothic rock band. Eleven songs taken from the band records released between 1982 and 1984 including the two frst singles originaly released on Andrew Eldritch of THE SISTERS OF MERCY very own Merciful Release which is not surprising as they grew up in the same scene and their sound is very close. THE MARCH VIOLETS formed in 1981 in leeds, uk, their music is cold and dark post punk driven by drum machine, mixed male and femal vocals and great melancholic guitar leads. This compilation includes Snake Dance & Crow Baby among others early gothic hits ! High quality vinyl repress housed in black inner sleeve, thick outer sleeve and including insert sheet with lyrics and pictures. (Restless Empire Records)
