NEUROT RECORDINGS One of our long-term favourite segments continues, as Neurot Recordings has chosen a new album for this week´s Pay What You Can offer! This week it´s Mass VI by Amenra, so make sure you head over here to claim your copy and simply pay what you want!

POISONED BLOOD San Francisco’s Nuclear War Now! Productions have just added several titles including the forthcoming Sign of Final Massacre by Poisoned Blood. Aimed at fans of Sodom and Bathory you can listen to a sample track here where you can also order a copy on limited vinyl.

WELKIN Drawing themes from ancient Chinese myths Emblems of Valour by Singaporean black metal group Welkin is available now on China’s Pest Productions. The album comes in a limited colour vinyl edition, CD and digital. Listen to the album in full and order a copy here. Don’t harpoon your neighbours with a two-metre spear though, that’s not socially acceptable these days.

DEATHGRAVE What better way to start your day than with a nice fresh glass of freshly squeezed grindcore! Coming via California’s Tankcrimes label, It’s Only Midnight is the new album by Deathgrave, featuring such delightful numbers as “Sewer Runs Through Her” and “Rats are Back” you can listen to the album in full here and follow the links to purchase a copy on cassette, CD and various limited vinyl options.

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.

Its as if there is no limit to bands and labels these days, working hard on bringing us fun activities, music and fabulous merch, and so of course, don’t we sort of owe it to them to take advantage of it all?
