JUNE 1974 Featuring a ton of guests from Extreme Metal bands like Death, Suffocation and Pestilence, Please Destroy Me is the second album by Italy’s June 1974. An instrumental Extreme Metal solo act of Federico Romano, the album is out now on Romano’s own Visionaire Records. He did the cover art too. What a busy young man. Listen to the album in full here.

NEIGE & NOIRCEUR Les Brumes Éternelles is the new album from Canadian Atmospheric Black Metal act Neige & Noirceur. Released through Italy’s Avantgarde Records, you can listen to the album in full here and buy a copy on CD.

JÖJJÖN Symphonic Avantgarde Black Metal coming via Hungary’s Jöjjön on China’s Extreme Metal label Pest Productions, in the form of Faust’s Grave. You can listen to the album in full here, with a link to buy the album on limited edition CD.

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.
