    Magic Castles 'Sun Reign'

    £11.99

    Available on Gold 180 gram vinyl Minneapolis psych-rockers Magic Castles are back with a new LP, 'Sun Reign', making an exciting return after founder and songwriter Jason Edmonds'suffered a near fatal car accident in November 2019.

    Magic Castles are well-versed in the ways of psychedelically-inclined folk-rock. Edmonds'smooth vocal harmonies float above the guitars, creating a lush, almost Byrds-esque soundscape. The layered arrangements incorporate Farfisa organ, synths, and dreamy string arrangements.

    Sun Reign is the band's fourth release on Anton Newcombe's label A'Recordings Ltd. Ironically similar to BJM, the Magic Castles have been plagued by lineup changes over the years. Due to this and other factors, in 2016, Edmonds, a single father, decided to take a short hiatus from regular live shows and touring to focus on his family.

    During that time, (2016-2019) Edmonds, an introverted multi-instrumentalist, continued to record new material in his studio, and also record with a new band at Neil Weir's studio Blue Bell Knoll, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The results of these sessions are the current release, 'Sun Reign'.

    Rudolf de Borst: Vocals, Bass, Keys, Guitar / Ben Cole: Drums, Percussion, Vocals / Christian Livingstone: Guitars, Keys / Philip Somervell: Guitars, Vocals - Six years hath passed since the last release action from NewZild's most noted crafters of classic rock.

    A lengthy period of quiet has been broken, with a stash of fresh riffing & renewed wailing. What change might have come to bear in a half dozen years? Is the DATSUN tribe more world weary, more savvy, more learned...? Is all this on evidence in the capturing of the newly birthed sonic heft and hooks? Have these geezers still got what it takes?

    The exhibit - Album No.7 - "Eye to Eye". The stylistic grasp of these 11 tunes wrap the locomotive chug of classic Ian Gillan/Ritchie Blackmore helmed Deep Purple, seasoned nicely with generous servings of Jon Lord keyboard surge, to some updated glam boogie power chord-age, in a manner not dissimilar to the production shenanigans Josh Homme (that QOTSA fella) applies to his various projects.

    Has Datsun vocal main man Dolf de Borst always come across like some bastard offspring of Marc Bolan and Alice Cooper? There's some otherworldly fantastical floating folk glam vocal melodies wafting in & out of this selection of tracks. And the Cooper sneer & snarl rears its head, in those tunes of a more heart pounding nature...

    The guitar effects and greater keyboard dosage have peppered this clutch of new tunes with more flavours on the menu. Lest us not ferget the master of the cabin fever mongrel pedal electronic mechanics, and frequently featured lead Datsun instrumentalist, Christian Livingstone. It can be imagined the man has been labouring intently, in a wintry lock downed Northern hemisphere, fine tuning freaked fuzz frequencies, sci-fi squeal & spazz, and a host of other soaring dogfighting & dive-bombing tones, fer the instrumental breaks and beds for this album. The inherent rok dramatics and attack are the responsibilities Mr Livingstone bears.

    The dynamics and tempo rest in the mitts of them other Datsun three. "Windmill" Phil Somervell gets to bring his rhythmic geetar chops & noted arm flailin', to underscore the light & shade of the riffage, knowing whens to slash or slug, pinch or punch. Ben "Poundin' Soul" Cole machine guns the rolls, and hits the timing twists & turns when required.

    Master de Borst locks in his bass walkin', & talkin', stuttering & strutting w/his fellow rhythm men.. An album entrenched in the past, remodelled for the future, one unknown & uncertain more than ever.

    Albert Bouchard is best known as one of the founding members of Blue Oyster Cult. The original band sold millions of albums for Columbia Records with such classic songs as Don't Fear the Reaper'and the #1 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart Burning For You'.

    As a songwriter, he wrote many BOC songs including the very popular Astronomy'which was covered by Metallica on their 1998's release Garage Inc and the live staple Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll', which he also sang lead vocals. Today when not writing and recording in his home studio, he performs with several bands.

    His latest group, Blue Coupe, is a superstar combo which features his brother Joe Bouchard, also a founding member of BOC, and Dennis Dunaway, a founder of the Alice Cooper Group and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Albert's famous cowbell on '(Don't Fear) The Reaper' was the basis of the popular SNL skit with Will Ferrell and Christopher Walken, which has gained over 13 million views and spawned the phrase 'More Cowbell'.

    Re Imaginos sees Albert revisiting the 1988 Blue Oyster Cult album Imaginos, which was originally intended as his solo album. The album weaves scripts and poems by the late Sandy Pearlman, a concept album about an alien conspiracy that is brought to fruition during the late 19th and early 20th century through the actions of Imaginos, an agent of evil.

    For fans of Blue Oyster Cult, Blue Coupe, and Classic Rock!

    These E.P’s will contain new or exclusive tracks from their roster and beyond and will be available by mail order only.

    Plague Organ 'Orphan'

    £11.99

    With influences ranging from deviant free-form jazz, drone and dark ambient, to ritualistic black and death metal all the way to the most erratic strains of kraut and improvised psychedelia, abhorrent avant-garde/ambient black/death metal deformity Plague Organ debut with their first ever offering, "Orphan", a spiraling and malformed mantra of deviated experimentalism and inverted incantations designed to bore into the listener's mind and ravage it of its sanity.

    On the single forty-minute track, the deranged Dutch duo (who feature members from death metal deliriants Cryptae, Imperial Cult, Dead Neanderthals are more) unravel a single nauseating and diseased spell of guitar-less aural claustrophobia made of hallucinating synth patterns, obsessive percussions, psychotic bass-lines, blood-curdling grunts and spectral lamentations that combined unison weave a suffocating and disorienting fractal of self-replicating passages, making the listener feel asphyxiated in a dimensionless maze with no discernible exit.

    Trapped inside the near-geometric absurdity the listener becomes the subject of a lucid nightmare as they sink deeper into a state of catatonic delirium and of helpless hypnosis while their psyche is meticulously consumed and devoured by the album's abhorrent repetitions and winding hypnotic deformities.

    By all means a triumph in fringe sonic experimentalism and among the most accomplished and unclassifiable avant-garde extreme metal anomalies of the year, "Orphan" is a must for all fans of other deranged experimentalists like Ride for Revenge,
    ????, Sunn O))), Chaos Echoes, Antediluvian, Oksennus, Sect Pig and beyond.

    Spire 'Temple of Khronos'

    £20.49

    Obscure Australian dark metal futurists Spire return with their immense sophomore full-length album "Temple of Khronos", a reality-bending psychedelic/progressive extreme metal masterpiece of the highest order that will disassociate the listener and teleport them outside their own consciousness, reality, and self.

    Continuing their cryptic inner war against metal traditionalism and musical conventions in general, this time the Australian atmospheric black metal shapeshifters have fearlessly peeled back the hazy outer layer of their primordial black metal sound to reveal a previously unseen, massive, and glistening, architecture of cinematic sonic dark matter that elevates their imaginative and visionary power to unseen heights, opening worlds inside the listener into which be drawn, trapped and dissolved within one's own consciousness and self.

    Immensely evocative, and shrouded in a profound and majestic mysticism,
    "Temple of Khronos" is a foreboding sonic gateway that will push your imagination to its limits as it explores the concepts of time as a deity, tyrant, and as ultimate engineer and destroyer of reality to connect the listener with an obscure and distant future civilization that in facing its own inevitable demise stares back into time facing us with our own nothingness, powerlessness and finality.

    The album's immense atmospheres and its seemingly boundless imaginative force stem primarily from its crisp but layered and dense production quality that works as a catalyst to channel an unseen and massive sensorial overload of sound in which cinematic and multilayered vocal arrangements (the temple's "choir"), lysergic atmospheres and winding, epic instrumental constructs cyclically collapse to surround the listener and submerge them in an otherworldly ritual of consciousness-altering and space-time distorting aural immensity.

    Vinyl LP comes with A2 Matte Poster and printed inner sleeve.

    Swiss black metal void sculptors DSKNT are back with their immense sophomore LP
    "Vacuum ??-Noise Transition", a devouring nightmare of omnipotent sonic annihilation conceived at the most liminal edges of sanity.

    The reality-destroying album takes shape as a dark and multidimensional hallucination deep into reality's most cryptic and terrifying truths, a place where entropy and chaos assume near-corporeal and hyper-realist forms, becoming empirical laws and axioms of all manifestations therein, with the music serving as the abhorrent mathematical key that allows the listener to unlock this realm beyond and "see" the horrors that populate reality beyond the reach of the five senses and of the terrestrial dimension.

    Harrowingly evocative and devastating beyond comprehension,
    "Vacuum ??-Noise Transition" assumes its hideous form through a ravaging maze of managed guitar fractals, eviscerating compositional deconstructionism and an inhuman event horizon of decaying soundscapes and oppressive atmospheres that dismantle the listener piece by piece, forcing mind and soul apart to disintegrate in each other's reflection.

    Somewhat claiming the torch of absolute avant-garde violence and abhorrence from bands like Deathspell Omega and Portal, the devastating album is an all-encompassing and sensorially annihilating masterpiece that transitions this heritage of aural abominations into its most unavoidable future and inevitable conclusions, reshaping the DNA of surrealistic extreme metal as we know it and pulverizing all its known thresholds through a hideous out of body experience ritualized through total aural abandon.

    Giorgio Di Salvo signs a new chapter in his Advanced Audio Research: a blast of free-form junglish mayhem, once more released in coproduction with Haunter Records. This time ripe with the furthest experimentations and most far-out cuts coming out of the AAR headquarters.

    That's right, we're dealing with some serious freakishness : using the same generative process and wicked arsenal of tools as his previous oblation, Di Salvo managed not only to top its rave-ready madness, but also to venture far beyond, arranging the gnarliest noises into wild, crooked beats and mocking melodies. 

    AAR's music is still closely related to the heaviest dance music paradigms like breakcore and flashcore, tho it maintains such a unique character and such a distinctive sonic palette that makes it stand within that musical world in a truly refreshing manner.

    'Where Do We Go From Here?'Your guess is as good as ours but that's the question being posed by legendary art school rockers Deaf School on the lead track of this new compilation of cuts entitled Parigi My Dear'culled from CD releases Enrico & Bette and Laundrette and not previously available to download or stream.

    17 tracks of classic Deaf School art pop, drama, dream and pun but basically and to quote the late great Beatles publicist Derek Taylor (who signed the band to Warner Bros In 76) 'It's really just good old rock & roll'. With the brand new Lockdown fresh Where Do We Go From Here?'kicking off the album plus an epic extended version of this glam rock piano driven belter just about closing it, shades and sounds of early Deaf School circa the bands debut classic album 2nd Honeymoon'are in the air.

    Written and conceived in the middle of the Covid 19 Pandemic and recorded by correspondence in 5 different locations without the band ever getting together face to face during the whole process, it's an unexpected new year gem!

    Also added to the mix on this Japanese import are two early and never before released demo's of the first single and live show stalwart What A Way To End End It All'as well as Bette Brights dreamy hangover song from the bands third album Morning After'.

    Black Spiders - Those Trusted And True Sons Of The North Are Back. 'We knew the new album had to be special. We've been away for a while. The first album was a straight shot, the second on the rocks, with this new one we had to kick down the brewery doors!' Pete Spiby

    Back in June of 2017, Sheffield rock beasts Black Spiders waved goodbye to an army of loyal fans with some sonically charged shows before retreating into the shadows.
    And then, in November of last year, with the world in the grips of the Coronavirus pandemic and after a long year of very little fun from out of the silhouettes they returned with Fly In The Soup', the first new Black Spiders music in 6 years. Exactly the feel-good shot in the arm the world needed, while we await that other vaccine.

    The seeds of the Black Spider return were actually planted last summer, when singer and guitarist Pete Spiby began taking to guitarist Ozzy Lister to start writing new material and before they knew it, they had amassed the best part of 40 songs in a very short period of time which they whittled down. And then the pandemic hit.

    'It's certainly been a strange process, in unfamiliar territory,' explains Pete. 'We started to look at how we could do it, given the restrictions and the fact that lead guitarist Mark Thomas was isolated on a boat, in the Mediterranean and would have to record his parts remotely!! Not only that, but we had to replace our original drummer too. For us and probably most other bands, we would usually take a riff or song idea to a rehearsal and thrash it out till we either had something or it ended up in the song graveyard! This time around we couldn't do that, so myself, Ozzy and on occasion Adam Irwin (bass player) started to send ideas back and forth until we had something to work with in GarageBand. We got to a point where we had enough song ideas with basic structure to go into a studio. It was at this point when we had to look for a new drummer.'

    With former drummer Tiger'Si Atkinson unavailable to play, with a week or two of grooming, the band took a chance on Planet Rock DJ Wyatt Wendels to occupy the drum stool. 'I've never joined or worked with a band in this way EVER,' laughs Wyatt. '2020 certainly made it surreal.

    'A Pete/Ozzy writing session at the beginning of the year had produced some promising results, but it felt like barriers were popping up everywhere,' explains bassist Adam Irwin. 'We started talking about how we could use technology such as GarageBand to help, and slowly but surely the song writing gathered pace. It was time to hook up with our old producer Matt Elliss and try these new songs out in the studio.

    'Heading into the studio to record songs we'd written but never played together, with a drummer that we'd never met, is one of the stranger experiences I've had while being in a band. Thankfully, Wyatt has turned out to be an excellent addition, who despite his faults (loud, southern) has fit right into the band dynamic. Covid has made life really tough for so many of us in our industry. And yet, this new way of song writing has been liberating, this is the most consistent and prolific we've ever been, and I am immensely proud of this album.'

    Against all of the odds, Black Spiders have crafted an album that features 13 tracks of high-energy, feel-good rock n'roll contrasted by demonic doom that despite the disjointed, isolated way it was recorded. It sounds like a band, firing on all cylinders.

    'We had to dig down deep to pull out some gems and what would we want from Black Spiders,' questions Pete. War, vengeance, mental health, death, conservation & climate change, where are we from? Relationships, friendships, our flaws. Where are we going? Alien life and Mother Earth - some of which made the record.'

    Kicking off with the aforementioned Fly In The Soup'single, this 3rd ST long-player wastes no time in grabbing you by the scruff of the neck and dragging you through an album where good times, hooks and riffs are not in short supply, but the doom-drenched likes of Wizard Shall Not Kill Wizard'and the psychedelic groove of album closer Crooked Black Wings'give us an album of many moods and dynamics and a reason to be cheerful in 2021.

    And why does the album have no title? 'It wasn't hard picking a title for the album, as we decided that the focus should be on the band, not the album title, so we decided not to have one. Let the music do the talking...

    American Tears is an American keyboard trio that released its first record, Branded Bad, on Columbia Records in 1974, it's second, Tear Gas, in 1975, and its final for Columbia, Powerhouse in 1977 before reforming in 2018. Due to the very well received 2018 release of its 4th record "Hard Core", the band recorded "White Flags", released to great critical acclaim in 2019, which kicked it all up a notch. Formed in the fertile musical environment of Long Island, New York, the band was initially made up of Gary Sonny, on bass, Tommy Gunn on drums and Mark Mangold on keys and vocals.

    The band was a power keyboard trio, using keyboards of the day, Hammond organ, synths, mellotron, clavinet, electronic melodica and playing progressive music which showed the bands stellar musicianship. The band was fortunate to have toured major venues with such bands as Peter Frampton, J. Geils, Alvin Lee, Gentle Giant, Gary Wright, John McLaughlin and many others.

    They reached a wide audience and had an impressive show, topped off by Mangold doing handstands on his Hammond while being surrounded by his massive keyboard setup. Mark Mangold would go on to play and work with Michael Bolton, Cher and Paul Rodgers, penning the hits 'Fools Game', 'I Found Someone', and "For A Little Ride" and many others, as well as forming the bands Touch, Drive, She Said, The Sign and others. 

    Now releasing "Free Angel Express" the band continues its journey with keyboard rock that varies from extended progressive and heartfelt songs offering anthemic choruses, lush tapestries, scathing soloing and poignant lyrics. Mark's voice has been compared to Joe Cocker, David Lee Roth and even Peter Gabriel.

    Mark states, 'If I can convey and express an emotion, create a thought, a "moment", I'm good. It's music, but it's also life. Gotta let the imagination fly. There was no one to confuse me so I just followed instincts and chased the adrenaline.' Free Angel Express features Alex Landenburg (Stratovarius, Kamelot, Rhapsody, Cyhra) on drums, with guest appearances by Barry Sparks (UFO, Dokken), Doug Howard (Touch, Utopia, Edgar Winter Band), and Charlie Calv (Angel, Shotgun Symphony).

    For fans of ELP, Moody Blues, Deep Purple, Touch & Drive She Said!

    New Heavy Sounds

    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.
