Once again a Tuesday happens to be upon us! Who saw that coming?
So, let’s see what’s out there…
BLACK LION RECORDS The clearance sale continues over at Black Lion Records, which offers us a 50% discount, and a 2 for 3/one CD free, excluding pre-orders! The room which will be cleared up this way will then be filled with delicious new autumn releases so make sure you head over here and help out!
URFAUST Now available with a 50% discount is Urfaust´s full digital discography, which counts for 13 releases, over on Bandcamp which adds up to mere 27 euros! Head over here to claim the whole thing right now on a bargain!
NEUROT RECORDINGS Our select favourite continues over at Neurot Recordings as they have picked a new album for this week’s Pay What You Can segment! This week it’s no other than Naptánc/Dancing With The Sun by Galloping Coroners (VH)! Head over here now to claim your copy and simply pay what you can!
HEILUNG We hear that the tickets for the fall Heilung US Tour are selling fast! Hurry up over here to check the dates and venues for the coming October/November tour, and make sure to claim your ticket to the nearest show!
THE NIGHT PORTER So you like metal, but how about some harsh noise? Let’s be honest here, if you really want to terrorise your neighbours, Cannibal Corpse doesn’t necessarily have the same impact it used to. Head over to Drama Recorderand you can get your hands on some real extremity, like the label’s latest release For Every Grave, There Is A Feeding. For Every Tomb, There Is A Feast by The Night Porter.
MANIACO If you like death metal, you surely like Demilich, right? Well, Mexico’s Iron, Blood and Death Corporation have announced a forthcoming release that has an air of Finland’s finest toad-fronted-tech-death-metal-masters in the shape of Maniaco and their self-titled album. Released on limited CD on the 19th of September, you can listen to the full album right here, right now.
RUIN LUST Well, looks like the world is finally ending, or should we say “sounds like”? That could be the conclusion after a minute with Dissimulant, the forthcoming blast of apocalyptic dystopian death metal from Ruin Lust. Released on the 29th of September on 20 Buck Spin, you can pre-order the album on CD, vinyl and cassette here, where you can also listen to the album’s opening track “Eden”.
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.
Direct Merch (Australia)
Napalm Records (Germany)
Throne Records (World)
Hard to believe the summer is pretty much behind us, isn’t it? Soon enough the trees will be turning yellow and cold will sneak in during the nights, but never worry, artists and labels out there are as hardworking as ever to bring us the best of the best, so make sure you take advantage of it all and hold those horns up high!
