A mere few months after the release of their debut album "Purge", french degenerate sludge quartet FANGE maintains their devouring fire with these six new tracks. With strong visual and lyrical ties to its predecessor, "Pourrissoir" marks the closing of a chapter for the band, while standing both as their most punishing work and as a step outside their comfort zone.
This time showcasing a colder approach in songwriting and production, their appeal for all things gritty gives character to their metallic sludgecore, leaning towards chuggy death metal, noise rock-infused slow-burners or harsh noise. With a now triple-vocal attack and a bigger emphasis on the ear-drilling side of their sound, "Pourrissoir" and its hammering wall of sound - once again captured by KKP in their hometown of Rennes - is one more proof of the band's unending thirst for unpleasant, gut-punching sounds.

"One of the most punkish and wild act in this saturated black metal scene. Intense and attractive songwriting with powerful and inspired lyrics are what you can expect all along the seven tracks of the record.The full run through the album is an absolutely exhilarating experience, yet each track in isolation lights its own fire"

"Founded in 2013 in Rennes (western France) by Huata’s bassist B.Moreau with the will of pushing sludge in its more abrasive, mind-numbing corners, FANGE’s debut EP «Poisse» revealed a band with an uncommon take of the genre. Re-appropriating the classic Swedish death metal sound with detours to harsh noise, crust or metallic hardcore, the band now fully realize their sound on their first album «Purge», strengthened by a new line-up that features drummer B.Louvet and vocalist M.Jungbluth (Calvaiire).
With only one guitar throwing out monstrous HM-2 fueled riffs, stomach-kicking yet versatile drum work and bile-gargling, mutilated vocals, «Purge» marks a filthier turn in the band’s uncompromising wall of sound. Entirely recorded by KKP (Abjvration, Huata, Ataraxie…) and enhanced by ear-piercing layers of noise, these six tracks are an exhausting aural experience. This is ignorant music for the Educated Man. For fans of : irrational feelings of guilt, Tom G.Warrior vocal gimmicks, body negativity."

"Arisen in 2011 from the fertile scene of Montpellier, France, VERDUN made a name in the realm of slow and heavy music on the basis of a simple three-tracks demo, leaving a strong impression on every witness of the band’s thunderous live shows. With a line-up solidified after a few european tours and opening slots for forefathers such as Electric Wizard, Eyehategod or YOB, the band finally delivers their long-awaited debut album, mixed and mastered by Tad Doyle.
«The Eternal Drift’s Canticles» is the fruit of three years of crafting; far from simple amp-worship, the band excels at creating memorable tracks with their science of instant-classic riffs. A richer background emanate from these guitars, able to tint their sludge/doom roots with metallic hardcore toughness or burden-of-the-world melodies. Another strong component of VERDUN’s trademark sound comes from these charismatic vocals, switching between echoed screams from outer space, spoken words or mournful clean vocals. With an arid, heavy as hell sound, «The Eternal Drift’s Canticles» is a 55-minutes dark and painful procession that transcends the heritage of too-often codified scenes,running away from simply rehashing the past."

"Three years after the monstruous and blackened VILAGVEGE, RORCAL is back with a brand new full length entitled CREON. Again, this new beast is showing a different face of the band by the mean of 4 hellish tracks for more than 50 minutes of music. Furious, but also melodic, these new songs display a wild range of atmosphere, each one serving the purpose of an epic story. Yes, it’s the death of 4 well known Greek characters, all linked to Creon, that are narrated in this new concept album. Punishing blast beats, heavy riffs, progressive structures expressed through brilliant song writing, possessed vocals; everything is here reunited to create a new level of insanity in the field of extreme music. This 4th full length, recorded in three days in live conditions by Steph Kroug and mixed in Sweden by Daniel Bergstrand, is a journey nobody could have dreamed of. Let the magic do its job, let yourself drown in this beautiful and savage piece of aggression."

«Deafening isn't a word strong enough when it comes to describe the sound of Lille, northern France's LOVE SEX MACHINE. Their brutal, low-end-obsessed, modern approach to sludge metal garnered them some instant followers with the release of their 2012 self-titled album. Four years and some line-up changes later, the band returns with «Asexual Anger», which achieves to sound even more crushing and vicious. The core of their sound hasn't changed : gut-punching guitars, irresistible slow and chuggy riffs that create an apocalyptic wall of sound only pierced by hellish shrieks. Still entirely recorded, mixed and mastered by themselves, with exquisite artwork designed by Førtifem, «Asexual Anger» is an eight-tracks lesson in absolute heaviness. An unrepentantly ugly record, without any other aim than knocking you down to the ground.»

"Hailing from Germany’s Hardcore-Punk scene, NIGHTSLUG was formed late 2011 in Düsseldorf. A first 12" demo was released via Per Koro Records, followed the next year by "Dismal Fucker", their stunning first full-length that demonstrated the band's impressive, loud & abrasive sludge mixed with raw punk/hardcore energy.
After a plenty of gigs all across Europe, the trio took some time off in early 2015 to record "Loathe", their second album, to be released through Lost Pilgrims Records (FR), Dry Cough Records (UK) & Broken Limbs Recordings (USA).
Throughout the 7 songs on the album, NIGHTSLUG remains consistent in its crushing riffs, pissed-off vocals and sheer hatred, altogether making for one of the heaviest records of the year. With "Loathe", the band has succeeded in taking their nihilistic vision of the world one step further - as ugly and hopeless as can be in a world devoid of any meaning.
NIGHTSLUG is what music would sound like if all life was burned off the face off the earth."

"Boar was founded in 2009 in Oulu, Finland. After several splits and EP tapes, the band shared stages throughout Scandinavia with dozens of bands such as Conan, Weedeater & Dark Buddha Rising to name just a few. In 2014, the band entered their "Stoner Katakombs of Doom" to compose, record and mix their first full-length album, "Veneficae", to be released in May 2015 via Lost Pilgrims Records, Mikrofoni and Rämekuukkeli. Boar bends genres and structures to present its hazy, psychedelic vision over the course of six tracks stretching from Doom and Stoner rock to Classic rock and even Harsh noise. "

"Dirty, massive & loud sludge experience.
Formed in late 2013 by Baptiste from Brain Pyramid and Benjamin from Huata, FANGE (meaning “mire” in french) is a simple project. Making harsh riffs and hard beats, playing them loud, with a huge amount of distorted sounds and feedbacks.
All you’ll find here is a huge amount of fuzz and distortion, out of hand feedbacks, low tuning and big amps, heavy beats and fat kicks, distorded vocals, wall of noises. Sinking into a dirty and filthy noise-sludge to exorcize the human grime and primal idioms conveyed by all the summer and warm stuff, we are in deep mud. Fvck mankind. "

" Four years after «How Hate Is Hard To Define» and a pair of splits, here's the long-awaited second full-length from Toulouse, France's PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND. «Lowgazers» marks another impressive step in the band's quest of total aural devastation : armed with new drummer Ivo (Stuntman, PAL…), the four-piece picks the most dissonant and experimental aspects of black metal, hardcore and sludge to create an unreal vortex of desolation.
From the first notes of "Thrvst", the band reaches new heights of intensity, switching from inhuman blast beats to slow-motion torture, while unorthodox guitar work and painfully shrieked vocals tear the listener from all quarters. Recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, Calvaiire, Death Engine…) then mastered at New Alliance East (Converge, Gaza, Xasthur), «Lowgazers»'s sounds commensurate to the band's vision, being a ruthless demonstration of power as well as an untouchable pinnacle in extreme music hybridization.

"Switzerland's very own ELIZABETH return with new EP "Insomnia"; four new tracks of hardcore/crust/whatever showing their ability to write neckbreaking hymns and intended to be played at full volume.
An intense barrage of manic drumming, chainsaw-tone guitars, and these trademark raspy screams that come from nowhere : on this EP the band goes one step further into heaviness without sacrifying dynamics.
After the recent release of an LP documenting all their previous body of work,"Insomnia" is a brutal foretaste of all things to come for ELIZABETH."

After a first demo whitout bass player and many gigs all over Europe, they recorded the final version of “Acceptance/Rebuild” during june 2013, live and in one day with Gilles Kockelmans at Block Bunker Records.
"Acceptance / Rebuild" proves that DEUIL is able to mix genres and develops their own identity based on intense melancholy and dark atmospheres. Those songs express feelings and emotions you can feel after the loss of someone… "

"Formed in 2009 in Geneva, Switzerland, ELIZABETH has quickly built a reputation with their retentless brand of hardcore/crust and energetic live shows that brought them from La Havane to St Petersburg.
This LP combines all their existing material on the same record : a repress of the 2012 "Where Vultures Land" 12"EP and for the first time on vinyl their 2010 demo - five tracks that show a band that has been impressing since day one. All packaged in a deluxe jacket and with a brand new cover art."

"With members from french titans Birds In Row, As We Draw and Puzzle.
Hourvari depicts a style of dark music that seems more like the culmination of those projects, instead of a compromise in between.
Two long and monolithic songs, slowly built enclosing influences from hardcore, post-rock, shaping dark and intense atmospheres. "

"Named after the most inhuman battle in the First World War, VERDUN (France) are one of those bands that are hard to label, merging the lines between sludge/doom and slowed-down dark hardcore.
Heavy and dry riffing, neck-breaking groove, incantatory vocals, fogs of delay and a strong psychedelic feel, that's what you can expect from the half-hour of their debut EP "The Cosmic Escape Of Admiral Masuka" out in early 2012 on Head Records and Throatruiner Records.
Carrying a strong live reputation with their never ending tours over Europe, VERDUN is definitely one of those bands to watch for any fan of Burning Witch, Electric Wizard, or Amenra; and by extension anything dark and crushing."

"Világvége, Armageddon, Fin du monde, Weltuntergang, Apocalypse, Ragnarök... No matter the language or origin, the 'End of the World' has always been a huge theme of discord since men were born.
After illustrating the decadence of a Roman Emperor with HELIOGABALUS in 2010, RORCAL is back with a third album whose guideline just appeared to be obvious.
Like its source of inspiration, RORCAL music has no boundaries and VILAGVEGE is here to prove it. When Doom turns into Black, you can't expect anything but chaos: 8 tracks straight to the point, nervous and furious like never before."

"“Phœbus” , the new album of Cortez, confirms the come back of the Swiss trio, just after the release of their 10’’ split with Plebeian Grandstand, on the labels Throatruiner Records, Basement Apes Industries and Get A Life ! Records.
With this album Cortez is again proving that you can get out of the habitual pattern of power trio(guitar, drums and voice), and still burps noise-hardcore fury and incandescent anger. The band recently reorganized itself with the arrival of Antoine Tinguely on the guitar (ex-Berserk For Tea Time), Samuel Vaney, former guitarist, is now supporting the band as composer / mixer.
Recorded partly in the REC Studio of Serge Morattel in Geneva, drums, and partly in their own rehearsal space, guitars and vocals, this new album is the result of hard work, giving the band big freedom in creation and the possibility to fully assume the production process. Complete independence in learning, creating and finalizing the record.
“Phoebus” reaffirms the taste of Cortez for saturation, but also explores a wide range of possibilities. Like a threatening and corrosive mist the aggressive sound still remains intense, melancholic and emotional.
The artwork accompanying this new album has been entrusted to Dehn Sora, bringing a subtle spark to this dark masterpiece."
