It’s Wednesday my dudes! Well, our dudes! We hope you are ready for this week’s instalment of The Underground Updates!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

STEVE VON TILL This Saturday, April 20th, at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST you can join Steve Von Till for a sneak preview of the Harvestman – Triptych: Part One album a few days before its release! You will get a chance to listen to the album in full, and feel free to chat with Steve about its creation! Head over here right now to RSVP!

NEUROT RECORDINGS The weekly segment of Pay What You Can is everlasting over at Neurot Recordings, and this week’s album pick is DEAFBRICK by Deafkids & Petbrick! Head over here right now to claim your copy, and simply pay what you can!

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN Attention please! Until April 30th there is a 20% discount on all merchandise and Dunkelheit releases, but only until the stock lasts so be ready! Head over here with your quick hands!

BLACK LION RECORDS You can still save up to 50% on everything in the month of April over at Black Lion Records by using the code blacklion50, and in addition, you have the option to name your price on their digital catalogue! Head over here right now to check out the selection!

BENIGHTED A concept album about a neurological disorder set to brutal death metal? Must be France’s death metal juggernaut Benighted and new album Ekbom. The album is out now on Season of Mist and there are CDs, various vinyl pressings and a whackload of t-shirts and other merch to be had. Check it all out here where you can listen to the album in full. Tasty.

KING YOSEF Industrial metal machine King Yosef has some new merch up on the Bleakhouse webstore. There are some cool t-shirts and long-sleeves there. Plus while you’re at it, you can pick up limited, colour vinyl pressings of last year’s An Underlying Hum album. Why would you not? Check it all out here.

SENTIENT RUIN LABORATORIES Few do universe-crushing extreme metal like Sentient Ruin Laboratories does and if you want to show your love for one of the best underground extreme metal labels in the game, head on over to their webstore where there’s a metric ton of long-sleeves, t-shirts and hoodies to be had (of crushing beasts like Rigorous Institution, Altarage and Gawthrop. Check them out here and if you aren’t in the know, go check out the bands too.

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.
