    Tenebra 'What We Do Is Sacred' CD

    £5.00

    TENEBRA are a four-piece from Bologna, Italy, and they are a hard and heavy stoner rock powerhouse, fronted by a seriously formidable singer. This is full on fuzz meets 70’s style proto metal but they are by no means a retro outfit. They create music that is not only the sum of their influences but pushes those influences outwards.

    They say …
    “We love rock like it used to be but try to make it speak our language.”
    And that they most certainly do as ‘What We Do Is Sacred’ testifies. 

    ‘Cracked Path’ is all organic 70’s proto metal with keen song writing and a contemporary edge. Full on fuzz with the psych grunge of the 90’s underground, it’s Screaming Trees meets Fu Manchu, and it must be said that the vocals are truly storming. Silvia has one helluva voice, laced with whiskey, smoke, grit and late nights, think Maggie Bell or Olivia Favela from Birtha meets Betty Davis and you'll be in the right ballpark. It has light and shade and perfectly lands the TENEBRA vibe.

    ‘Hard Luck’ is a chugging, pounding ride down the highway to hell with Silvia’s bluesy wail destroying all before it, complete with a psychedelic wall of guitars and melodics a plenty.

    Finally you get ‘Primitive Man’ a cover from the first and self-titled Jerusalem album released in 1972. However TENEBRA claim this song as their own, the proto metal riffs are all there, the vocals are blues wailingly epic and just to mix it up there’s a cool middle section complete with flute solo.

    ‘What We Do Is Sacred’ is a 3-song statement of intent, so, if you dig Sabbath or Kyuss or Green Lung and like your stoner rock hard and heavy, occult tinged with a psychedelic edge, then this is the band for you.

    Very limited edition CD available as part of New Heavy Sounds’ 10th Anniversary EP series. Housed in a bespoke die cut sleeve and limited to just 150 copies.

  • Shooting Daggers 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl/Missandra' Flexi 7

    New Heavy Sounds

    Shooting Daggers 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl/Missandra' Flexi 7" PRE-ORDER

    £5.00

    Dive into the sonic mayhem of punk trio Shooting Daggers, a visceral amalgam of hardcore punk, riot grrrl and metalcore. They describe themselves as a feminist punk/queercore outfit, and for those who can remember, Daggers recall classic elements as well. Think fat grunge licks, speeding 'SST band' riffs, and the artful and political angst of DC Hardcore and all with the coolest of melodic hooks.

    This first single is a full on statement of intent, musically not just content to career from A to Z, but with enough twists and turns to take you on a short but thrilling journey. It is without doubt proper punk rock, shit kicking UKHC shorn of vacuous posturing. Possessing a message, an attitude and ’in yer face’ excitement in spades.

    MWWB 'The Harvest' PRE-ORDER

    £19.00

    Release Date: 19/03/2021

    ‘The Harvest’ is MWWB’s fourth album, and is a record shot through with the trademark heavy MWWB sound. The chugging riffs and haunting melodies of Jessica Ball are all there, however it also sees the band adding more experimentation, a progressive approach, and going a bit more left field conceptually.

    With ‘The Harvest’ MWWB have refined and honed their sound from their previous three records. 'The Harvest' is a carefully crafted distillation of ideas, written, conceived and sequenced to be listened to in its entirety (preferably in one sitting). MWWB have always loved film scores and this new album is in many ways, the soundtrack to a film. MWWB provides the musical narrative (the song titles also provide a pointer) and the listener's imagination does the rest.
    To some extent, it shares similarities with Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’. Not only by having the mix of experimentation and melodicism as that seminal record, but also in the way that it has been engineered and constructed as a seamless piece.

    Nine tracks flowing into one another. Space age riff monsters segueing into shorter musical interludes, where John Carpenter rubs shoulders with Pink Floyd and a maelstrom of moog and mellotron. There are surprises, and of course a bucketload of heavy shit.

    Kudos here must go to producer Chris Fielding, who has masterminded an epic sound world, with a much more close up ‘in your face’ mix. Meticulously bringing out every nuance, from soft and atmospheric, to expansive and crushingly heavy. The band have never sounded better.

    £8.99

    'The second pressing of Mountain Caller's debut album 'Chronicle I: The Truthseeker' is limited to 500 copies, cream vinyl housed in a single sleeve with printed inner, plus a full download.'

    Mountain Caller describe themselves as a heavy progressive instrumental three-piece, who are driven to tell stories with music and want listeners to conjure up cinematic scenes in their minds.

    If one needs a sonic ballpark, think the infectious jamming of Elder and the dynamic cinema-scapes of Mogwai, underpinned by the mantric riffs of Sleep.

    A rich amalgam of Progressive Rock, Post Metal and Doom. Nevertheless, Mountain Caller do succeed in weaving their own unique spell.

    Recorded in January of 2020 at No Studio in Manchester by producer Joe Clayton of Pijn, and mastered by Magnus Lindberg of 'Cult Of Luna', Chronicle I: The Truthseeker. is the fruit of three years of jamming, crafting, and conceptualising; a collaborative piece, where each instrument takes centre stage, within a heady mix of chasmic riffs and panoramic, reflective soundscapes.

    1. Journey Through The Twilight Desert
    2. Feast At half Light City
    3. I Remember Everything

    Full download included as well.

    CD package is a 4 panel digipack, with a 4 page booklet.

    Musically Embr's debut 1823'could be categorized as Doom'. However, it's obvious that EMBR have range, drive and a desire to add to the genre, to broaden it whilst staying true to its core fundamentals.

    Rest assured, the band have all the nuts and bolts in place. Mark Buchanan (guitar), Alan Light (bass) and Eric Bigelow (drums) keep everything tight and weighty. Massive drop-tuned guitars, chest rattling low end, pounding drums, fuzzy distortion, it's all there. But they also add in synths, a bit of grunge and alt rock flavors.

    The vocal talents of Crystal absolutely soar and strengthen the music. Her range, patterns and harmonies transport the band's music skyward. Crystal adds soul and an air of melancholia to the musical creations. If a pointer were needed, think Mastodon meets Witch Mountain with epic sweeps and a shade of gothic drama.

    The songs on 1823 are loud, brutally beautiful, aggressive, abrasive and at times atmospheric, uplifting and emotional.

    £17.99

    Abyss was recorded under a full moon over three intense days, and has the off the leash'abandon of Fun House'era Stooges'.

    Sonically, it's a fat dose of doom meets slowed down hardcore punk; filled with loud, ultra distorted guitar, and yet, a surprising amount of melody as well.

    In fact, Yuko has said that the band's name is a combination of Black Sabbath and Stereolab, well here on Abyss'is where that strange mix begins to make musical sense.

    The band haven't lost their love of lo-fi or Riot Grrrl'attitude.
    Vocals go from shoegaze melodic to hardcore screams. The guitars are loud and heavily gnarled to the point of chaos, and underneath all this, the drums rolling and tumbling thunder amidst the riffs.

    Yes there is a smattering of Sabbathy Wizarding'of course, but submerged within dark, deep fuzz and punk rock crank and grind.

    In truth the vibe is closer to both the arty heaviness of early Boris, and the sweet savagery of My Bloody Valentine, than any kind of doom'tropes. It's a sound that is undoubtedly BlackLab's own.

    The Compact disc is a 4 panel digipack with lyric booklet.


    Sky Valley Mistress are 4 young upstarts from Blackburn, Lancashire, full of spit and vinegar who have delivered a ferocious, two fingered hello to rest of the world with their debut album 'Faithless Rituals'.

    Eight tracks of fierce passion and spirit, blistering stoner rock 'n' roll with huge riffs, buckets of fuzz and hooks guaranteed to nail you to the wall from the get go. Couple that with inciendiary playing one of the best female vocalists around ... you have one helluva debut album.

    In fact, SVM could easily hold their own against the likes of Jim Jones, Rival Sons, Royal Blood, BRMC or any other rockers greasy or otherwise.
    Still only in their mid 20's, you can only assume, on listening to their debut, that these young turks made that journey to those legendary crossroads and did the dirty deed with the dark one himself, such is the level of musicianship and vocal prowess on show here.

    The album was recorded at the legendary Rancho De La Luna, Joshua Tree, California, and co produced by, and featuring Dave Catching (Queens Of The Stone Age, Eagles Of Death Metal and Mojave Lords amongst others) and like all great rock 'n' roll it has vibe and attitude in spades.

    Sky Valley Mistress are:
    Kayley 'Hell Kitten' Davies (vocals),
    Sean 'Starsky'Berry (Guitar),
    Russell 'Russell' Russell (Bass),

    First vinyl pressing is limited to 500 copies in Transparent Red and Black smoke vinyl. Included is a free CD and download of the whole album.

    Main CD package is a 4 panel digipack.

    London rockers, Cold In Berlin return with their new album 'Rituals Of Surrender'. Nine slabs of fuzz laden, goth infused doom crossed with post punk attitude and vibe.

    Over nine songs you are submerged into the dense, heavy sounds of their fourth album: A witch crawls from the ocean as the world is born looking for a new life, a woman recalls the painful love she needed to feel alive, a man cracks wide open looking for secrets, and love burns two desperate lovers - the songs are filled with heroic and overwhelming loss wrapped in the hope of what comes next.

    Produced with gritty clarity and volume by Wayne Adams (Green Lung - Woodland Rites) Rituals of Surrender opens with the grinding, hypnotic pulse of The Power and the apocalyptic rise of Dark Days, the record twists and turns as guitars crash, tempos warp and vocalist Maya stalks your thoughts with her mesmeric vocals. The rituals continue to build through Avalanche and Monsters, an edgy industrial throb and a sweeping prayer. Side A closes with Frantic a frenetic shard of fractured shellac.

    When the cut-and-thrust dies down, the album reveals the band at their most fragile. The haunting schadenfreude of Your Body//My Church is a beautiful, desperate love song nestled between the ceremonial Temples and the stoner trip of Shadowman. The album-closer Sacred Ground soars from a place of Lovecraftian foreboding towards an explosion of cinematic-doom.

    Their grandest and most poignant piece to date.

    First pressing is a double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with 2 colour variants. 

    Variant 1 in Green/Blue marbled vinyl. 

    Variant 2 in Amber and red disc vinyl. 

    Each variant includes is a free download of the entire album.

    Main CD package is a 4 panel digipack with booklet.

    Titled Yn Ol I Annwn', Welsh for Return To The Underworld', it is the third part of the trilogy of albums that began with Noeth Ac Anoeth'in 2015 and 2017's Y Proffwyd Dwyll'.

    The final phase of the band's first intergalactic voyage if you will.

    The eight songs that comprise thes album, sees the band delve deeper into their collective influences, embracing full on space rock, atmospheric film soundtracks, melancholic acoustic interludes, psychedelia, cosmic moogs and percussion, moments of introspection and light - ¦ and of course, large helpings of doom. The fat riffs, big hooks and endless space grooves are all present and correct.

    And once again Jessica Ball's voice glides over it all, both sweet and melancholy, yet this time more assured. A myriad of stacked harmonies and layered vocals weave in and out of the tracks, adding an other-worldly'melodicism to the songs.

    In fact the album as a whole, is very much a sonic journey into some cosmos on the edge of forever. Just turn off the lights, turn up the volume and be transported to dance at the end of time.

    The band's music has developed and been honed over the previous two records, but there is no doubt that they have distilled the essence of MWWB into this one. Previous comparisons to WindhandYobSleep. or whatever, are rendered completely redundant with Yn Ol I Annwn'.

    No one else is pushing the boundaries of heavy like MWWB.

    Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard sound like Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, full stop.

    MWWB are: Paul Michael Davies, Jessica Ball, Wes Leon, James Carrington, Stuart Sinclair.

    Transmaniacon feat Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin 'The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet'

    £8.99

    Limited to 300 copies. In 2 colour Transparent Green/Mustard half and half vinyl. Included is a free CD of the album and free download.

    Main CD package is a 4 panel digipack with booklet.

    A heavy rock concept album featuring the dark tale of future street dweller Suzie Pellet. A feisty survivor in a ruined world.

    Suzie is the brainchild of Ian Miller, fantasy/horror artist and novelist.
    Not unlike Michael Moorcock guiding Hawkwind, Transmaniacon bring Miller's vision to sonic life, alongside the outstanding vocal deliveries of punk poetess and avant rocker Lydia Lunch (a hind-sighted Suzie) and Maya Berlin (a future 'present-day' Suzie).

    Sci-fi and space rock, hard and heavy riffing guitars, overdriven Hammond Organ and synth are all in there. The twin heavyweights of Blue Oyster Cult and Mountain loom large, but this time with the added groove of an an organ-driven Frumpy or Black Mountain.

    Transmaniacon have taken and expanded Miller's vision into a story in which Pellet herself, describes the dark, underworld, its characters and situations, friends and foes, all in grisly-spoken and sung diary-like, excerpts.

    Lydia Lunch's world weary rasping syllables bring a frightening authenticity and drama to the older Suzie's memories and give an almost cinematic intensity to the imagery.

    The young Suzie is sung by Maya Berlin, vocalist with Cold in Berlin. Delivering equal parts Punk, Doom and Goth, Suzie gives her the opportunity to expand her vocal (and theatrical) talents in Grace Slick or Julie Driscoll or even Chelsea Wolfe directions.

    Ian Miller has once again provided his macabre vision for the sleeve art. But here his style has mutated into a vivid and creepy marriage of photo montage and the inky etched characters for for which he is known.

    A new vision of Suzie, perhaps a Hogarth or Durer painting for the 21st century.
    Step into the nightmare world of Suzie Pellet.

    Fuzz, fuzz, fuzz, doom, stoner, more fuzz.

    Welcome to the world of Blacklab.

    Blacklab describe themselves as the Dark Witch Doom Duo from Osaka Japan'.

    However, when it comes to witches, they are more the spectral Sadako from The Ring'than campy Countess Dracula'. Chilling cool with built in overdrive.

    A full frontal assault of distorted riffs, howls and ghostly vocals, as well as bags of riot girrl attitude and lo-fi bravado.

    Being nominally a Doom'band, expect a bucket load of Sabbath worship for sure, but Blacklab have a vibe and experimental undertow akin more to their countrymen Boris'and the souped up lo-fi fuzz of Ty Segall or Comets On Fire.

    Tracks like Black Moon'Hidden Garden'Spoon'Symptom Of The Blacklab'(which starts like Sabbath - ¦ then thrashes somewhere else), twist, burn and boil into the red. His Name Is - ¦'is a churning chunky throb. Spoon'and Warm Death'offer moments of relief and crushing noise.

    And Big Muff'is - ¦ well - ¦ 9 minutes of drum-less fuzz, that will probably do serious damage to your speakers.

    Vodun 'Ascend'

    £16.99

    Limited to 1000 copies. 500 in 2 colour Blue/White vinyl. 500 in Black. Gatefold sleeve. Included is a free CD of the album and free download with both vinyl options.

    Main CD package is a 4 panel digipack with lyric booklet.

    Take a look outside your window. We're living through a particularly bleak paradigm, with ominous political shifts occurring around the globe. It's time for a rallying war-cry, to tap into the power of our ancestors, to learn the wisdoms taught by history and its recurring patterns. It's time to acknowledge the power of women, to burn with the fire of a banshee wail, to taste the energy of revolution and feel the inspiration of generations of resistance.

    And that's where ASCEND, the second album by insurrectionary heavy rock trio Vodun, comes in.

    Ten slabs of ground-flattening, groove-inflected rock power, driven by the afro-inspired dervish drums of Zel Kaute (interpreting the spirits of Ogoun), the roaring, fierce chromium guitars of Linz Hamilton (The Marassa), and fronted by the fire-breathing howl of frontwoman Chantal Brown (Oya), delivering you the truth of generations with a drive and focus that can't be matched.

    The music of ASCEND is more sophisticated than on Possession, the band's 2016 debut. The canvas is broader, the details more vivid and varied. Their palette now embraces a healthy dose of extra percussion, saxophone, and vocal arrangements that pair Chantal's behemoth holler with harmonies, chants and howls, a full-spectrum of sound that suits their polymorphous attack.

    Ascend is, unabashedly, revolution music, its ten tracks a hurricane of mystic heaviness, spiritual soul and furious positivity, its colossal riffage & rhythms allied to inspirational lyrics and powerful melodies to deliver food for the soul and fire to inflame uprisings. At heart, it's an album of musical celebration, and heavy playfulness - lyrically of resistance, and of solidarity. 'We can rise above this,' nods Chantal, referencing the dire state of 2018.

    'And we will rise above this.'

    Limb 'Saboteurs Of The Sun'

    £14.99

    Their third album, Saboteurs of the Sun sees Limb hurl themselves skyward to discover new worlds within the riff - time continuum. 

    Building on their previous two records, which positioned Limb in the thick of the UK heavy fuzz scene, the band now move beyond their sludge - doom origins to explore a cosmos of bubbling synthesizers, screaming organs, ecstatic choirs and galaxies of wild unidentified sounds alongside the heavy riffs.

    Vocalist Rob Hoey says, 'We're not a band that wants to get complacent. For our third record, with the wider world around continuing to fall apart, we wanted to address big, grand themes. And to do that, we had to broaden our sonic palette.'

    That's not to say that Saboteurs of the Sun jettisons any of the stomp and swagger that Limb have made their own. The grooves, the power and the chops are all there in spades - helped by a masterful production from Russ Russell (Napalm Death, At the Gates, etc.).

    Each of the 10 songs that make up this record is a sonic vignette, telling a story that could have sprung from the mind of sci-fi visionary Philip K Dick - tales of reckoning with a world that is incomprehensible.

    Saboteurs of the Sun is heavy - ¦ of course. But it is also ambitious and thoughtful, boldly bucking the system and revealing something new with every play. But most of all, it is the sound of a band bursting free from the world that made it, unapologetic and unafraid of what it might find.

    First vinyl pressing is limited to 300 copies. In 2 colour Orange/Green vinyl. Included is a free CD of the album and free download.

    CD is a 4 panel digipack with lyric booklet.

    £20.49

    First vinyl pressing is double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Limited to 300 copies only. 150 in 3 colour Cream/Green, and 150 in Black vinyl. With free download included.

    Vinyl and exclusive design T-Shirt bundles are available from Cargodirect.

    CD is a 4 panel digipack with lyric booklet.

    The second album by London/Brighton heavy contingent GRAVE LINES follows on from their 2016  debut 'Welcome To Nothing' and sees the band expand their sound across nine weighty, yet darkly melodic tracks.

    Coming in at just shy of an hour. FED INTO THE NIHILIST ENGINE is a must listen for fans of all things heavy, however anybody seeking music that delves into the darker and more introspective aspects of the human condition will find much to love within its expansive tracks.

    At times quiet and melancholy, at times an oppressive and miserable onslaught of crushing riffs and filth-laden grooves.

    Fans of Yob to Neurosis, even Bauhaus or Dead Can Dance, take heed, FITNE reaches out to encompass elements of them all.

    Lyrically introspective, dark and challenging, vocalist Jake Harding states - ¦
    'The album is an exploration into our relationship with negativity. The Nihilist Engine is symbolic of our greatest flaw and the self-defeating nature of our species. This machine represents both the inner turmoil of the human spirit and our struggle to understand the darkness spreading from external forces. Self-perpetuating and infectious, these feelings contaminate and spread. A relentless machine drawing us in and chewing up our poisoned remains.'

    Grave Lines are back with a record which promises to take you on an exploratory journey deep within the inner realms of your own psyche.

     " - ¦a fine introduction to a band who will undoubtedly soon be one of the brightest stars in the London underground." Noisey

    "Their debut is certainly more than the sum of its parts, taking in huge Neurosis-esque riffs, and a gloomy, gothic melodicism that is all their own " Terrorizer
