We are going to do this quick and easy this time!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

NEUROT RECORDINGS The weekly Pay what you Can over at Neurot Recordings continues; this week´s album pick is Specter by Sabers, and you can head over here to claim your copy and simply pay what you can!

SUMAC The singular, atmospheric sludge metal group Sumac — featuring Aaron Turner of ISIS — have just put out a double LP repress of their 2015 debut album The Deal on Profound Lore Records. Perhaps you already have a copy, but do you have a tasty double vinyl copy? Hmmmm. Snag yourself one here where you can also listen to the album in full.

SOULSLICER Feeling in the mood for some old-school death metal in the mould of Asphyx, Bolt Thrower and early Slayer? If so, head over to Great Dane Records here and check out Pandemic, the newly released album by Soulslicer. There’s a CD to be had, or a digital copy. Whatever wets your whistle.

SINISTER DOWNFALL The Last Witness is the newly released third album by German funeral doom metal group Sinister Downfall on the Funere label. There’s a whole bunch of merch, limited editions and bundles to be had. If that tickles your fancy, head over here and have a listen.

LYKOTONON We’ve got another release from Profound Lore Records. This one is due out on the 25th of November. Promethean Pathology is the debut full-length album from Colorado’s avant-garde black metal group Lykotonon (say that fast ten times). You can pre-order the album here and listen to the preview track.

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.
