There is absolutely no getting rid of our writers Julia Katrin and Tom Osman, especially on a Tuesday like this!
So, let’s see what’s out there…
HYPNOTIC DIRGE RECORDS Part two of Hypnotic Dirge Records summer sale is upon us! Until August 4th there is an even greater discount than before, amounting to 30% off any order over $50, and 40% off any order over $100! The offer applies to everything in their shop, from label releases and merch, as well as their extensive distro of 1000+ titles! Use codes 30OFF or 40OFF depending on your order after filling your cart as usual over here!
NEUROT RECORDINGS Time for another album pick of the week over at Neurot Recordings! This week up for grabs is Sovereign (remastered) by Neurosis! Head over here to claim your copy and simply pay what you can!
COLD SPRING More titles have been added to Cold Spring´s summer sale! Over 900 CDs from just £2.50 during the 4th of July until the 31st of August so head over here to check out the selection!
WOLVEN The latest instalment from Belgian, one-man, crust-punk band Wolven (aka Filip Dupont) is upon us in the form of War Poisoned Cult, the project’s follow up to 2020’s Generate Mass Violence. You can listen to the album in full here where you can also nab a copy.
THOTCRIME So apparently cybergrind is a thing, and Thotcrime are… that. D1G1T4L_DR1FT will be the group’s fourth album and judging by the preview track it will delight and infuriate metal fans in equal measure with its quirky weirdness. Do you like quirky weirdness? Well, you can check out a preview track from the album here, where you can also pre-order, with the album being released on 26 October.
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.
Direct Merch (Australia)
Napalm Records (Germany)
Throne Records (World)
