#BAZUndergroundUpdates CXIII

3 min read

And the trek continues! The Underground Updates is back with a brand new instalment of this week´s offer and goodies!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

BLACK LION RECORDS Surely there is no UU without a mention of our good friends at Black Lion Records and so we would like to remind you all that the pre-summer campaign is still going strong with the label, offering up to 50% discount off of pretty much their entire inventory. Head over here to check out the selection and remember to use the code summer50 at the checkout!

NEUROT RECORDINGS This label never fails to deliver, and this week’s Pay What You Want album pick is Souls at Zero by Neurosis! Head over here to secure your copy, and simply pay what you want!

DARK FOUNT Celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band, China’s Dark Fount released their latest album Become the Soul of Mist on Pest Productions. Pick up a copy and listen to the album in full here.

SEDIMENTUM It was starting to feel like forever that the great, dirty debut demo of Sedimentum was the only output the band had. Now the great news has dropped that the band’s debut album Suppuration Morphogénésiaque will be released on the UK’s Me Saco Un Ojo Records on 25th July 2022. Coloured vinyl copies are already all gone, but you can pre-order other formats of the album here, where you can also hear a preview track.

MORBID EVILS Do you like Primitive Man? If so, you might have a screw loose, but hey, join the club. But now also there’s a forthcoming slab or horrific death/doom/sludge in the form of Supernaturals, by Finland’s Morbid Evils — due on 19th August, 2022 on Transcending Obscurity Records. Anyone familiar with the label should know by now, this means a ton of tasty merch. Check it all out here, along with a preview track of the album.

Having to pay gigantic sums for international postage is a real gear grinder. While it’s our default setting to link Bandcamp pages in the case of new and pre-releases, we thought it would be helpful to add some online stores that might provide a useful alternative. So if you see a release you fancy, but it’s being sold in a far off land and you don’t want to fork out on exorbitant shipping, see if any of the links below can remedy the situation.
