And we are back at it yet again!

So, let’s see what’s out there…

FULL OF HELL American grind-core group Full of Hell will be releasing this coming Friday their brand-new full-length album Coagulated Bliss via Closed Casket Activities and now, just a few days in advance, they have released the title track together with a brand-new music video! Head over here right now to check out the video, and of course over here to pre order the new fancy album!

BLACK LION RECORDS This week only, there is free shipping on all new CD releases over at Black Lion Records! The offer also applies to releases which have arrived with the label in the past few weeks, and those who are coming soon, and keep in mind there is no code needed on Bandcamp but use the code FREESHIP on Big Cartel! Head over here right now to check out the releases!

MASTER BOOT RECORD The Italian based electronic metal project Master Boot Record will be returning to European stages in the coming fall on a full tour! Rumour has it they are excited to return after the success of their previous tour, and they will in fact be returning to many cities they have performed before so if this is something you perhaps are familiar with, you may want to keep an eye out for the tickets and info on which cities they plan on visiting this time!

HARVESTMAN Well, it ain’t metal, but it’s Steve von Till damnit! Long Standing member of legendary sludge-metal titans Neurosis bringing the first in a three part series of psych/folk/ambient albums as Harvestman. Triptych: Part 1 is available now from Neurot. Check it out here.

HAIL SPIRIT NOIR Let’s get existential baby! (And cosmic). Newly announced on Agonia Records, Fossil Gardens by Hail Spirit Noir is a blast of psychedelic black metal, thematically exploring the limits of knowledge space and time (the simple stuff!). Check out the preview track here, where you can pre-order the album on limited vinyl and a range of other 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.

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.
