We are most certain that there is no need anymore to ask if you know what day it is.

So, let’s see what’s out there…

OCEANHORSE Recently Joonas and Ben from Oceanhorse were interviewed by GRIMM Gent about their new album Heads Will Roll where they talked about how their state of mind was different with this recording, where they attempted to get a more raw and dirty sound. But don’t take out word for it! Head over here to read the interview right now!

G OMORRA Some months ago Gomorra recorded the Conan-, Barbarian-, Manowar-style music video Stand United featuring Laura Guldemon of Burning Witches from their new album Dealer of Souls! Head over here to watch it now if you haven’t already!

ONTBORG The official music video to the track Purgatory from Ontborg´s new album Following The Steps Of Damnation is ready for watching right over here, and if you happen to like it as much as we did you can head right over here to stream, download and purchase the album!

NEUROT RECORDINGS Another weekly album pick over at Neurot Recordings is currently available to us for their Pay What You Can feature, and this week it’s Harvestman – 23 Untitled Poems by Steve Von Till! Head over here to claim your copy and simply pay what you can!

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN The label proudly presents Rituals over Limburg! The weekend event is limited to 200 tickets only so quickly head over here to get your ticket for the weekend of the 17th and 18th of November and enjoy the Who-is-Who of contemporary Ritual Industrial; from pioneers and top acts to the most hidden of gems, all will unleash their mighty force that weekend!

ARCHSPIRE/BENIGHTED So we just wanted to remind all of our readers out there that Archspire and Benighted are starting on European Tour alongside Psycroptic and Entheos, and so far the London and Nijmegen show are sold out and Manchester only has limited tickets left. So make sure you have quick hands and head over here to secure your ticket!

KAYO DOT Embarking on their Choirs of the Eve 20th Anniversary Tour across Europe, Kayo Dot features the complete line-up of legendary predecessor band Maudlin of the Well! Having started in London last Friday, there are still quite some shows left until the final curtain falls in Italy on March 5th, so make sure you check out the tour dates and tickets!

DISILLUSION This March Disillusion will be performing with violinist Lea-Sophie Fischer in Switzerland as well as Germany, so make sure you keep your eyes open for the dates and tickets!

SOLOTHUS Originally released in 2013 Summoned From The Void is the debut album by Finnish death/doom outfit Solothus. Now for the first time Czechia’s Doomentia Records have put the album out on an extremely limited vinyl pressing. If you want to lay your hands on the sound of a creature from below coughing up a mighty lump of molten metal — and you want it on wax — do not delay! Grab a copy here where you can check out the album in full.

SWAMP WITCH Dredging up another past release from the bog Transylvanian Recordings have made The Slithering Bog by Swamp Witch — originally released in 2015 — available on limited purple vinyl. If you want a copy of this very appropriately titled sludge/doom, you better get your skates on and click the link here where you can listen at your pleasure as well.

ISOLANT Their first new music since 2015 Drain by US industrial metal outfit Isolant is out now on Sentient Ruin Laboratories and if you want some nasty, insidious industrial grimness without a hint of light in it, you should head over here and check it out. Available on digital and cassette.

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.
