Redwood Hill / Hexis Picture 7″
– 500 copies as picture 7″ on heavy vinyl
– 1 songs each band
– co-release with Mind Control Records, Invektiv Records, KPHC, Enjoyment Records, Boue Records, Shove Records and Bookhouse Records

Intense blackened hardcore mob Hexis have teamed up with harrowing sludge bruisers Redwood Hill for a split release that showcases two of Denmark’s most promising contemporary bands.
Hexis’ contribution, the absolutely terrifying ‘Tenebris’, is a furious little number, rife with black metal-esque bile and a palpable sense of anger. The track will also be featured on their upcoming album ‘Abalam’ which will be out January 11, 2014 through Musicfearsatan (France) and Halo Of Flies (USA). The band has also released a video for the song, created by Craig Murray (Converge, Narrows, Oxbox etc.), which you can view below.

Meanwhile, Redwood Hill dole out some slow motion punishment with the grinding ‘Applewhite’, resembling a much more evil version of Cult Of Luna. This is the first new material the band have released since dropping their monolithic debut album ‘Descender’ earlier this year.

The 7″ is 6,66 € plus 2 (4) € shipping in Germany (worldwide).

Painted Wolves – s/t 12″
– 500 copies on black vinyl
– 6 songs, 18 minutes of music.
– Featuring members of ANCHOR, DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS, DEAD VOWS,
– co-release with Day by Day Records, Epidemic Records, I For Us Records, and Wegan Wolfpack Weckords

PAINTED WOLVES might be a new band to most of us, but the individuals behind it are no strangers to “the game” as the band features members from DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS, ANCHOR, DEAD VOWS & THE SMACKDOWN.

Or you might have listened to their very well received 7″ called “Unholy” which is a four-song-tribute to darkness, the tradition of punk, jeansvests and headbanging. PAINTED WOLVES stick to this formula on the self-titled 12″.
So, where to put this record? You can feel the members love for punk in any second of their songs, the creativity they bring into the simplicity of punk, the utmost energy and honesty. It might sound hackneyed, but this is a record that doesn’t give a fuck. It pays no attention to rules or conventions. It showcases a band doing whatever they feel like and they are doing it right. Dedicated and with lots of fun.
The guys are all huge fans of Breach, Final Exit and Separation and you might realize some of their background in the sound. But you better give it a listen, their sound is raw and unique and will energize you right away.
“S/T” was recorded Simon MellergÂrdh at Studio Skogen, Göteborg, Sweden. Mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden Recording Studio. East Palo Alto, CA. He has been working with artists like BROADWAY CALLS, LOMA PRIETA, DEAFHEAVEN and ROCKY VOTOLATO, just to mention a few out of very many.

The 12″ is 11 € plus 4 € shipping worldwide.

Whorls – Lvmen Natvrea 7″
– 250 copies on black vinyl
– co-release with Boue Records

Hailing from Denmark, Whorls play a chaotic mix of blackened punk and metal. This is their first 7″ and the sound is like a head-butt that blows up your face! They have some influences from Celeste and countrymates Hexis but create a unique style of chaos-hardcore that bands were playing at the end of 90’s or in the beginning of 2000. They remind of ACME or the first period of Dragbody and even the old French band Soar. The whole releaese comes with a good part of Black Metal. Whorls still being completely original and crushing. Your ears will bleed!
This is limited to 250 copies, so better be quick.

The 7″ is 4 € plus 2 (4) € shipping in Germany (World).

Nous Étions / Aldo Raine Split 12″
– 500 copies on black vinyl, EU-Pressing.

Both bands have released very good debuts in the first half of the year and now they put out a new four-song split. Aldo Raine combines screamo/hardcore with dreamy post-rock touch from Düsseldorf, Germany and Nous Étions play post-metal and sludge influenced screamo from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The mood of the record is quite ethereal and a little darker than their previous songs and the sound of the split is dynamic and properly heavy, I think. Excellent stuff!

The 12″ is 10 € plus 4 € shipping in Germany and Europe.
Other countries please ask!

Orbit the Earth – Aphelion 12″
– 100 on white, 400 copies on black vinyl.
– Gatefold
– released with This Charming Man Records

Ladies & gentlemen, I am presenting you in cooperation with This Charming Man Records, the band of five fellas you might already know their recent and/or former outfits (Just Went Black, Ritual, Empty Vision, Cobretti) – but with OTE all of them go total different musical ways. Think of the technical-finess of Botch teaming up with the dark atmosphere of Jr. Ewing and the heavyness of Isis. somewhere near that “Aphelion” will make its musical impression. 40 minutes of heavy, groove-infected atmospheric songs. Some of them are a ‘two and a half minute fist to the face attack’, some take their time to develop into thirteen minutes of sad melodies and bulldozer guitars.

The 12″ is 11,90 € plus 4 € shipping in Germany and Europe.
Other countries please ask!

“The missing link between ISIS and CONVERGE, their brutal hardcore-infused-doom metal is as head-explodingly heavy and visceral as it is soothing and cerebral.” – MetalInjection.net

“Expect big things from these guys in the future.” – Lambgoat.com

“This is how the end of the world should sound.” – Mammoth Press
