DESCRIPTION:
The history of the past two centuries is characterized by blood, sweat, oil and great changes in the world. Two brutal world wars, industrialization and urbanization have left their mark on the art of the 19th and 20th centuries. The poetry of this time is what inspired Grim Vision for „With those who favor fire” – the first release of the Hamburg-based fourpiece.

Grim Vision combine Hardcore, Death Metal and Black Metal to a furious but raw mixture. The members have been active in the scene and various bands (Gentlemens Sports, Bricktop, Suckapunch, Obyra, Back In Time) for a long time. Their lyrics deal with the abyss of human beings and the incarnation of evil in the world.

„With those who favor fire” was recorded in the 48 Volt Studios in Winter 2014. The EP will be released in September 2014 via Bastardized Recordings. The Preorder contains a limited cover and clear vinyl. With an enclosed download code two more bonus tracks are available.

DESCRIPTION:
The earth is destroyed and mankind escapes into the depth of the sea. But the struggle for survival never ends and so new societies, the obsession for authority, anger and passion continue to exist. It's a story inspired by the deep sea which ICHOR use on "Depths" to mesmerize their listeners and fans. The band has entered the famous Hertz Studios in Bia?ystok/Poland to record their new album - a studio which is also responsible for albums of bands like Behemoth, Decapitated and Vader. ICHOR also recorded their last album Benthic Horizion there and underlined with the renewed choice their affinity to the strong and brutal sound that makes this studio so famous. ICHOR have recorded an album that unites all musical USPs of this band: American death metal-oriented guitar riffs on compact drumming, occasionally broken by mid-tempo passages and some Black Metal -Parts, but always energetic and on the highest technical level. In elegiac and all-crushing blast beat outbreaks ICHOR dive into the deep sea and take the listener on a journey through an audiophile apocalyptic fantasy story.

As being active in this scene for more than ten years, the musical direction is of MISEO is undoubtedly: Death Metal with US- and 90´s-old school influences. Full of enthusiasm the three skilled musicians composed the first songs for an EP which was finally recorded in March 2013 at Desert Inn Studio (LAY DOWN ROTTEN, MILKING THE GOATMACHINE) in Edingen. The result is „The Dead Will Predominate“, the first release of the hessian Death Metallers. Sound and lyrics are a brutal response to the pressures of todays reality. The bands lyrics are sociocritical and hateful. Fernando reacts to the effects of greed, envy and ruthless egoism packed in a garment of hate.

Harsh, cold, brutal sound filled with angry Punk-Rock-Energy and a snotty, hammerblasting sound. this kind of music hasn´t been there before in this kind of style - Bloodattack shows us what it means to be pissed off and puke it out straight in your face. fast fucked-up hardcore-action that remains us on Integrity, Ringworm or Eatharsis with englisch and german lyrics. this is more than music - this is the Embodyment of Shit - an ugly, raging, unaesthetic giant filled with pure waste and aggression.

FORMAT: LP

DESCRIPTION:
SIX REASONS TO KILL have the distinction of being insistent and consequent in what they're doing – without loosing sight of their target to play modern and aggressive Metal with a strong hardcore impact. In 2012 SIX REASONS TO KILL returned to the Kohlekeller-Studios again to record their fifth full-lengh album. The result is We Are Ghosts, is the most elaborated album of the Koblenz-based five piece.
We Are Ghosts is the essence of the bands music. 100% SIX REASONS TO KILL – but still an improvement. Songs like God Of The Dead or Inked Inside prove the unusual musical spectrum of the band. Dark and heavy influenced sounds, modern melodic Death Metal and some violent riff-shredding join forces on an album that keeps the attention of the listener without being a challenge. The lyrics of singer Lars Tekolf prove the bands consequent straight forward-attitude and try to convey another perspective on social topics.
The bands more Metal-influenced sound on We Are Ghosts was well received on a four week full European tour as support for NY-HC-legends Pro-Pain. With We Are Ghosts Six Reasons To Kill are ready to find a way into the hearts of every fan of brutal and melodic music.

DESCRIPTION:
Bust A Move’s first album “There’s no Place like Home” tells the story of a man searching for home, affiliation and identity. Ripped out of his familiar surroundings, contaminated with abominable thoughts and driven into despair he tries to find his way in a hypocritical, diabolical world. Where to go, when everything you once loved is taken away? Where to go when the inner demon controls your soul and tries to pull it into a misanthropic underworld? Only the thoughts of something intimate, of his roots, of his home keeps the protagonist alive. It’s the idea that in the end everything will be alright, the catharsis of the damned and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel – this is how he keeps his head above water. Also Bust A Move are in the struggle for identity and self-realization. Five guys coming from the Ruhr-area with roots deep in the west -and they all stand for one ideal! To compose, perform and actually live uncompromising, heavy music! Their music can be described by somewhat between modern US-Deathcore and groovy Hardcore. Whereas you get brutally crushed by vibrating blastbeats and barbaric shouts, the guitars deal a blow to your stomach again and again. Not even a bit of mercy. "There’s no Place like Home" was recorded by Aljoscha Sieg at Pitchback Studios. Listeners will definitely benefit from hispounding, powerful and at the same time transparent and organic work on mix and master of Bust A Moves first full-lenght album. The outer appearance of the album is complemented by none other than Rob Borbas aka. Grindesign With “There’s no Place like Home” Bust A Move created an album which is a symbiosis between relentlessness and benevolence, between hate and love, brutality and catchiness. For all who like truly heavy music mixed with groove – get contaminated!

PURIFICATION - A Torch To Pierce The Night

cd

CAT.-NO.: BE059
RELEASEDATE: 10 Aug 2012
FORMAT: CD/Digital

BUY: Click here


DESCRIPTION:
A new era in Purification history has begun carrying the same passionate spirit that made the band appreciated worldwide. Purification always meant militant vegan straight edge. And in this lack of bands carrying the ideology nowadays they found the main reason to bring Purification back to life. As the spirit of the message always overwhelms the mere members of the band, they still believe that it makes sense to play and tour again even if with a major change in the line-up. A TORCH TO PIERCE THE NIGHT sounds more modern but it carries the same message with even more urgency. Expect some melodic hardcore with a strong Thrash Metal impact and some modern elements that make A TORCH TO PIERCE THE NIGHT one of the most outstanding releases this year. On top the album is adorned by an artwork by one of the genre most recommended artists Dave Quiggle (PARKWAY DRIVE, SICK OF IT ALL, ATREYU, BURY YOUR DEAD). Last but not John Joseph (CRO-MAGS) added some spoken words to the album. A TORCH TO PIERCE THE NIGHT will help to spread Purifications message. A message which has no better words to sum it than Martin Luther King's: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere!”

DESCRIPTION:
Did you hear that loud, ear-piercing, grinding BAMMMM? That was the soundtrack to JAKA's final, ultimate band meeting. We'll spare you the details and go straight to the nitty-gritty: they split. On "KAPUTTE NACKTE AFFEN", they strut their stuff and deliver the goods for the last time. Music-wise, it's yet another direction, but don't you worry - all the JAKA trademarks are still there, including the well-known, beloved blunt & brutal lyrics. Due to these apocalyptic texts, the abum was almost titled "Fertig mit die Menschen" (Done with people). But that would have been too close to JAKAs 2003 cult EP "Fertigmensch", too much back to the rotten roots... Only bands without visions do "back to the roots" things - so JAKA threw that idea in the bin very soon because for their last output, they have had a lot of ideas indeed. Anyway, so "KAPUTTE NACKTE AFFEN" it is, and since "KAPUTTE NACKTE AFFEN" is the final kiss, the subtitle is "the deunion album". Once more, for the record: "KAPUTTE NACKTE AFFEN" is the last JAKA album. Enjoy the experience - JAKA will be sadly missed in the universe of craziness, the world of madness, and the realm of the bizarre. Over - and out.

Ichor are the most closely guarded secret in the german Deathmetal-Underground.

It’s a bit unusual that there is a band everybody in the Bastardized-Team loved from the first note out of the hi-fi equipment. The consensus is named (DAMN) THIS DESERT AIR and was consequently added to our rooster immediately. And they are as extraordinary as our agreement. United States Verbicide Magazine stated that “this is what 90’s alternative rock would have sounded like had it not been tailor-made for radio play”. (DAMN) THIS DESERT AIR creates big, booming, melodic rock, wide in its breadth, sound and scope. Their Distance Waits entitled EP is more adventurous, technical and harder than the standard.

DESCRIPTION:
You could say that ENEMY IS US is keeping their native country's metal legacy alive by delivering an explosive mixture of old school Swedish death metal, new school thrash and adding just a touch of hardcore aggression. Their second album, Venomized, is slick, diverse and calculating; shifting between full throttle tracks like "Through Vile Black Blood" and "My Cross To Bear" then suddenly coming to a menacing crawl with fist pumping anthems like "Show Me Them Horns" and "Carnal Betray." Co-produced by veteran, Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, SOILWORK, IN FLAMES), it's no wonder that Venomized is massive in sound and flawless in its presentation. Eleven tracks of hook filled choruses and unforgettable riffs that will surely help to propel ENEMY IS US into the metal spotlight where they will soon stand with the likes of At The Gates and Entombed as true champions of their homeland.


SIX REASONS TO KILL - another horizon

FORMAT: CD

DESCRIPTION:
Combining the violence and aggression of Death Metal with the groove and catchiness of modern Thrash Metal SIX REASONS TO KILLs latest effort "Another Horizon" offers a 60-minute trip through violence and harmony. This album is a honest piece of music and the logical continuation of the successful "Reborn"”record, but more close to the point and catchy as well as brutal and fast. Bands like THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SOILWORK or even THROWDOWN are suitable comparisons to describe the artists musical range. In his lyrics frontman Thorsten Polomski closes the gap between tragedy and confidence. His powerful voice adds some new colours to the well-known 6R2K-picture and makes this band stand out from a faceless mass. Produced and mastered by Kristian 'Kohle' Kohlmannslehner the production brings sonic thunder down to earth again.


JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE - rauchen und yoga

cd

RELEASEDATE: 12 Oct 2007
FORMAT: CD/LP

BUY: Click here


DESCRIPTION:
Forget about grindpunk! This is POPGRIND!
On their new album “Rauchen und Yoga”, JAKA come across faster, harder, more progressive (yeah right), but most importantly catchier than ever before. Along all the usual fretboard-madness and blasting a lot of real popgrind-hooks have been added to the music. The lyrical metaphors are tough as always, but the vocal lines are surprisingly catchy.
On the other side the production for sure is the most brutal the band has ever had to offer. Produced by Carsten Rehmann (yes, the drummer from “AntonB” from the legendary 80ies documentary “Trash Altenessen”) and mixed by no other than Robert Adam himself the production this time simply destroys everything the band has produced to this date.
The yellow one from the JAKA-boys will be stuck in your ears by the end of 2007! LP VERSION - SOLD OUT
