Seeing how you all know what day it is and what it is time for, then there is no reason for waiting around!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

AVANTGARDE MUSIC Since they promised some flat rate/nice price offers for vinyl maniacs out there, Avantgarde Music now offer their first vinyl blast box until July 19th! The offer includes a 10 vinyl box, and all further info and instructions can be found right over here! Make sure you head there now and check out the list from which you can choose your own 10 albums!

NEUROT RECORDINGS The fabulous weekly Pay What You Can segment continues over at Neurot Recordings, and this week’s album pick is One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache by The Body + Full of Hell! Head over here to claim your very own copy right now and simply pay what you can!

HORRENDOUS Having begun their 2 weeks of dates in the Southwest US & California last week, there are still plenty of dates left for the critically-acclaimed death metal band Horrendous, and we encourage all in the near area to head over here to secure their tickets right now!

BOVARY & APOTHEOSIS If you’re in the market for some ritualistic drone/ black metal, check out 22​.​09​.​19 a live document of Bovary & Apotheosis. Available now via French label Solar Asceticists Productions, you can pick up a copy of the extremely limited edition, handcrafted CD version here. The label stresses there won’t be a repress, so it’s now or never.

UADA Portland, Oregon’s Uada have a preview track of their forthcoming interdimensional black metal release Crepuscule Natura available to listen to here. The full album will be out on the 8th of September via Germany’s Eisenwald label, on a range of editions (including bandcamp only coloured vinyl). Check them all out at the link above, where you can pre-order a copy.

EVERLASTING SPEW RECORDS Those fine people at Everlasting Spew Records have bumped up their delightfully gruesome merch range on bandcamp. Head over there to check out designs like “Stench of Decay” and “Leprous Daylight”.

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.
