    Hold Me Down 'Powerless' Vinyl LP PRE-ORDER

    £21.49

    Richmond, VA-based harsh industrial metal deconstructors Hold Me Down reanimate their design for total sonic retaliation through their latest creation, "Powerless", a debut full-length offering of caustic post-industrial punishment and complete sensorial undoing which follows brilliantly in the steps of their transformative 2019 Sentient Ruin-issued self-titled demo tape.

    As is now commonplace with bands and their releases associated with Sentient Ruin, an aura of ambivalence, reverence and transformation enshrouds this work, with the echoes of legendary industrial acts like Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Godflesh and Swans reverberating from the past and undergoing a future-projecting metamorphosis, as present time contaminants (power electronics, blackened noise, death industrial) enter the picture in an aberrant recombination of stylistic DNA, paving the way to groundbreaking and grim sonic transfigurations.

    Throughout its ten cold bursts of synthetic mechanized dissolution Hold Me Down explore concepts of withdrawal, personal failure, societal fracture and emotional unravelling through a bleak post-industrial disassociation where disorienting drum machines, vitriolic metal guitars, bleak soundscapes and oppressive electronics instigate a depersonalizing collapse within the listener.

    As the album's title suggests, the medium of harsh and sensorially annihilating industrial synthesis is the centerpiece to this new work, wielded by the band as a dissociative means, or as a schematic to the dismantling of the listener, who ultimately must be rendered powerless, nothing more than an empty reflection of its surroundings and existence, with the music acting as its cold and implacable ruiner.

    A bleak projection of reality emerges from this design, boring through consciousness with surgical precision to destroy it from within, leaving nothing but a smoldering wreckage in its wake.

    Abhorrent Californian black metal legion Black Fucking Cancer re-emerge from the depths of torment with a new declaration of total war toward the human race in the form of "Procreate Inverse", a towering and long awaited brand new 2LP full-length offering of cataclysmic and imperial black metal domination.

    What has always set Black Fucking Cancer aside in the USBM scene is their strict yet transformative adherence to the tradition of black metal across all its eras, an approach which has aligned them far more to the Scandinavian/French school and led the Californian horde to evolve the style's most recognizable and iconic traits beyond a state of weaponized terror, glorifying its most vile dogmas and instigating its most antihuman instincts.

    The sum of all of black metal's most degenerate and nihilistic traits thus live within "
    Procreate Inverse" like the gospel of endless and perpetrated violence, nihilism and negativity which the genre harbors at its purest essence, and introduces a work which is by all definitions and standards nothing less than authentic black metal war, waged with punitive hatred and spiteful violence against humanity and anyone who dares to question the reign and tyranny of pure evil.

    Aside from the exceptionally executed and represented array of influences coming from bands like Funeral Mist, Aosoth, Antaeus, Katharsis, Gorgoroth and Marduk, within the apocalyptic design of this alienating slab of pure black metal warfare the listener is instantly faced with what is the key element to all its triumphs: the awe-inducing virtuosic majesty and executional dominance that have always distinguished this elusive American black metal act.

    It is this aspect which drives "
    Procreate Inverse"'s destructive yield into otherworldly realms, with its annihilating and winding guitar assaults that seemingly find no exhaustion nor respite, riding the inhuman backbone of a pulverizing and surgical rhythm section headed straight for the abyss.

    An all encompassing sonic devourment emerges from this unyielding and inexhaustible convergence of technical brilliance and compositional ferocity, leading "
    Procreate Inverse" to seem almost multi-dimensional throughout its lengthily and monstrous constructs and its fifty-plus minute blinding onslaught distilled from pure hatred and chaos.

    Release Date: 15/04/2022

    Australian dark death metal horde Golgothan Remains return with their cataclysmic sophomore LP "Adorned in Ruin", a thirty-minute weapon of absolute oblivion forged by the force of pure darkness and chaos.

    This new full length offering sees the Sydney extreme metal cult heighten and elevate their own vision of a dark future-shaping death metal to its most devastating form yet, pushing the genre beyond a state of weaponized majesty and assembling an imposing and magnificent sonic beast shrouded in destruction and otherworldly atmospheres.

    The band's staple onslaught of enveloping dissonance and unyielding intensity indeed reaches the pinnacle of its expression on "Adorned in Ruin", as various currents of black and death metal, old and new, are brought together by the band to create a transformative hellscape where futuristic and visionary atmospherics, sprawling songwriting and primeval violence are masterfully interwoven into omnipotent bedlam.

    Animating the imploding intensity and cascading chaos harbored at the heart of the album, one can easily parce the mind-bending guitar abstractions reminiscent of modern masters like Ulcerate, Abyssal or Phobocosm, yet the work resonates vigorously with the wrath and feral abandon that made Immolation's or Deicide's early dark death metal such a bastion of chaos and darkness decades ago. It is this encompassing yet future-reaching and visionary approach to the death metal craft, leveraging various of its eras, which has yielded such a majestic and imposing beast of an album.

    An intimidating dark death metal behemoth that emanates with an aura of apocalyptic immensity as it churns with the violence of godly destruction and feeds from the very depths of oblivion, casting monstrous shadows across a scorched wasteland and evoking visions of grandiose future wars and endless ruin devouring the earth.

    Dark Circles' stark, rabid and virulently embittered dark hardcore is a firestorm of crust punk, grindcore and black metal that marvelously brings together the best and most confrontational elements of bands like Catharsis, Gehenna, Cursed, The Secret, etc.

    On the other hand Abstracter's bleak and hallucinatory side fuses doom, crust, drone and black metal to incarnate a staggering twenty minutes of total and horrific devastation, yielding a similar sonic hell as seen in dark and miserable slower bands like Triptykon, Primitive Man, Coffinworm, Indian, etc.

    6th Circle 'The Idle Construct' Vinyl LP

    £20.49

    American blackened Electro-Industrial Act 6th Circle is back with new LP "The Idle Construct", another masterful forty-minute crucible of insurgent post-industrial darkness laced with haunting atmospheres and seismic, disorienting beats.

    Officially licensed from Sonic Groove Records, "The Idle Construct" is 6th Circle's most tenebrous and atmospheric release to date, seeing its first ever proper release on a physical format worldwide via Sentient Ruin as a limited edition black vinyl pressing, after its initial and so far digital-only release in 2021.

    "The Idle Construct" sees 6th Circle further evolve and deconstruct its dark sonic canvas, pushing its foreboding atmospheres and anachronistic grooves deeper into lightless realms, and taking the listener further into a dark future dystopia of bitter disillusionment and grim alienation.

    The dark flame of defining acts like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, and :Wumpscut:, burns more vigorously than ever within these ten caustic tracks of industrial insurrection, but what defines 6th Circle's unrivaled approach to the craft is not so much its masterful evocation of an unrivaled past glory, rather the fearless exploration of its still unaccomplished and uncharted possibilities in the present.

    Facing us is a dark electro-industrial beast levitating from the void and pulsing with the wrath of a dark age lurking ahead. A work which projects the genre into the future with spasms of sheer experimentalism and exploration, fusing themes and visions of the occult, magick, evil, darkness, political unrest, violence, chaos and the supernatural into a monstrous synthetic labyrinth of sound.

    Berserk Finnish raw black metal disease Hexerei bring us their venom-soaked debut full-length abomination "Ancient Evil Spirits", a deranged aural gateway to unseen depths of madness and total hell that will reshape the listener's idea of terror and toss them into the outermost circles of insanity.

    Comprising of four primordial stabs of blown out and feral homicidal rawness, "Ancient Evil Spirits" overboils from the witches cauldron with the quintessence of evil like an acid-drenched spell, invoking ancient evil forces, uncontrolled hysteria, and malevolent plague-ridden rituals to torment the listener with merciless violence and abandon.

    Reminiscent in its malevolence and primeval cruelty to ancient black metal cults like Darkthrone, Mayhem, Cultes Des Ghoules, and Katharsis, Hexerei however push these limits further and redefine the very concept of total aural filth by working the formula into a wider canvas, with lengthier compositions, an even more perverse emphasis on primitivism, and a more unpredictable and ambitious songwriting that has unearthed truly unsettling and terrifying new manifestations of the craft.

    The atrocious occult hymns of Vile Ritual churn with incantations of eons past to realize a most disfigured vision of deviated and perverse blackened death metal ritualism. Born of the most sinister and arcane carnal rites, "Tongues of the Exanimate" sees the sounds of ghostly utterances travel over cavernous ambiance to create a disembodied, trance-like state, while inhumanly crushing riffs bludgeon the listener and entomb them in a suffocating and gruesome aural burial.

    Both horrific yet timelessly evocative, Vile Ritual's ancient and blood-drenched blackened death metal melds the feral atrocity of 90's bestial black metal acts like Von and Beherit with hallucinatory atmospheres and the crushing low end of old school death metal butchers like Infester, Rippikoulu, and Imprecation to create a brutal yet hypnotic hallucination of total arcane death metal savagery and abandon.

    Conjuring similar otherworldly death metal deformities as we've seen in deviant bands like Antediluvian, Necros Christos, Sect Pig and Chaos Echoes, "Tongues of the Exanimate" is the most recent manifestation in this obscure entity's foul but masterful reveling in total surrealistic ritual death metal butchery, a 12" vinyl and cassette tape compilation LP envisioned by the band and Sentient Ruin unison that combines three brand new and previously unreleased tracks along with a completely remixed and remastered revision of Vile Ritual's masterful 2019 self-tiled debut demo/EP.

    Invultation's bone-vaporizing second full-length LP "Unconquerable Death" sees its first ever vinyl release via Sentient Ruin. Originally self-released in early 2021, "Unconquerable Death" plumbs the depths of total aural savagery, manifesting death metal transmuted into one of its most feral and malefic forms yet.

    While the band's 2020 debut album "Wolfstrap" introduced Invultation as presence to reckon in the outer realms of bestial and lawless death metal, it is this release in particular - with its majestic wall of sound and chain reaction-like intensity - that has established the Columbus, OH-based one man project as an authentic scourge of creation.

    "Unconquerable Death" sees Invultation further refine its lupine/lycanthropic concept as a proclamation of total savagery and barbarity, while discharging a cataclysmic payload of unseen wrath and intensity into a thick as concrete production that pushes the atomic yield of death metal beyond is breaking point, materializing one of the most weaponized, devastating and animalistic death metal releases ever conceived in the underground.

    The album's cristalline production, unforgiving intensity and aggressively virtuosic execution exalted by shredding leads and driven off the cliffs of oblivion by an arsenal of enormous death-bearing riffs, is an all-encompassing and celebratory end times ritual to the glory of metal, and an unforgettable chapter, archetype and homage to its most extreme and destructive manifestations ever.

    £21.99

    Somnolent rises from the abyss with its new album "The Infernal Expanse", an immense aural beast of infernal and diabolical black/death industrial dark ambient chaos fuming from the monstrous jaws of total hell and oblivion.

    The band comprises of founding solo multi-instrumentalist Jessi Nihl (Noctis, ex-Lycus, ex-Necrite, among others) on guitars, synths and electronics, joined on this release by vocalist MA (Abstracter, Atrament, Ash Prison), and the work sees the duo revel into unseen deconstructions of reality, fusing dark ambient, ritual industrial, noise and cancerous black/death metal debris to unearth the quintessence of infernal sonic abandon.

    "The Infernal Expanse" both complements and diverges from Somnolent's lengthy mostly digital-only and purely electronic dark ambient and harsh noise discography, and sees the project expand its instrumental arsenal and apocalyptic yield to catastrophic effects. Adding percussions, strings, violins, and a churning cauldron of crushing metal guitar abstractions to the preexisting electronic dark ambient substrate, with "The Infernal Expanse" Somnolent deliberately embrace certain malevolent and diseased strains of extreme metal, morphing into an otherworldly sonic cataclysm of hellish atmospherics, suffocating hallucinatory soundscaping, and flesh-scaring ritual black industrial madness.

    Its tectonic soundscapes and earth-shaking atmospheric dirges evoke aeons of absolute chthonian tyranny and bury the listener in an infernal aphotic realm of complete darkness, while molten flows of magmatic dissonance, twisted abstract black/death metal deformities gnarled out of shape and bestial demonic vocals conjure an inhuman sonic ceremonial of sprawling nightmares and absolutely blood-freezing horror.

    Influenced by entities like Lustmord, Nordvargr, MZ.412, Portal, Blut Aus Nord, Tyranny, Teitanblood, Sunn O))), and Impetuous Ritual, with the "The Infernal Expanse" Somnolent have harnessed a realm of infernal aural majesty that will inflict deep and horrific wounds into the mind of those who set ears upon their inverted conjurations, and which will leave long lasting scars in the fabric of elite underground experimental ambient black/death metal and industrial.

    Chilean black/death metal cataclysm Chaos Perversion emanate from the underworld of the glorious South American extreme metal scene with an aural declaration of war aimed straight at humanity like a hell-forged arsenal of complete mass destruction.

    Loyal and adherent to the tradition and reputation of the legendary and often far too overlooked Chilean black/death and speed metal cult, Chaos Perversion throw the entirely of their negativity and darkened vision into a nineteen-minute debut offering of feral and primal aural darkness worshipping the omnipotence and majesty of total chaos and inevitability.

    Originally circulated independently only locally in their scene back in 2019, the duo's debut EP "Petrified Against the Emanation" is now presented via Sentient Ruin for global audiences as a limited edition vinyl 10", digital product and cassette tape (CD via Mexico's Total Death Records) with a new master, brand new graphic layout and new cover art by famed dark tattoo artist Nekronikon (AKA Daniel Corcuera).

    The posthumously unearthed release introduces the Chilean legion to western/northern hemisphere audiences as a new lethal spearhead of their scene, joining the ranks of compatriot entities like Wrathprayer, Force of Darkness, and Invincible Force as ulterior fuel to the revered and undying dark flame of Chilean aural desecrating cults.

    Far from being however just a mere product of their scene, throughout Chaos Perversion's scorched hell-scape echoes of adjacent South American legendary cults like Sarcófago, Mystifier and early Sepultura reverberate throughout while the presence of European atrocities like Pseudogod and Grave Miasma reek from its wretched spires like a baneful presence signaling omens and premonitions of unseen black/death ritualism and disarray.

    £18.99

    American epic gothic rock/post-punks Murderbait issue their haunting sophomore EP "When the Sun Goes Down it Goes Down Forever" for the first time ever on vinyl via Sentient Ruin.

    Initially self-released on cassette tape and digitally by the band itself in 2019, with its majestic songwriting and heart-splitting dramaticism the mesmerizing two-track short player established the Portland, Oregon-based atmospheric gothic rockers as a cornerstone example of epic and dark western gothic excellence and as a beacon of superb and dramatic storytelling lost in a night of endless gloom and unravelling romanticism.

    Through its two epic spells of haunting psychedelic goth majesty, "When the Sun Goes Down it Goes Down Forever" unfolds nearly twenty minutes of dark western lore and dusty somber storytelling soaked in gloom and shadows, uncovering dark recollections of personal turmoil and decay, inner downfall, purgatory, redemption and rebirth through the trial of struggle and penitence.

    The two tracks display an unrivaled and unseen evocative power, channeled by a dramatic and operatic vocal delivery as centerpiece to a cinematic construct of epic progressive buildups and dark psychedelic dirges woven with keyboards, organs, electric guitars, synths and a monumental pulsing rhythm section.

    With influences sourced from a diverse pletora of legendary acts like Nick Cave (a song of which inspired the band's name), Swans, Fields of the Nephilim, Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, The Cure (especially Pornography and Disintegration era), Earth, Dead Can Dance, Bauhaus, Tangerine Dream, and John Carpenter, Murderbait's masterful fusion of epic prog, majestic gothic/deathrock, post-punk, darkwave, space rock and subtle touches of dark americana and roots music reminiscent of acts like Wovenhand, stands tall as a towering and unrivaled masterpiece of dramatic American underground epic dark rock.

    With death metal ritualized and used almost as an aural rite of passage to a higher order, on the devastating new opus the recluse Italian duo explore concepts pertaining to time, cyclicality, fatality, and to death as the true engine and ultimate motivator of life, and submit to the symbolism of chaos to access the higher knowledge and order which comes through it.

    Inspired by ancient black and death metal forces like Inquisition, Incantation, Morbid Angel, Immolation, and Archgoat as well as by occult scriptures found in ancient monotheistic doctrines and theology, "With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path" is a supernatural extreme metal crucible that plumbs the darkest depths of sonic ruin and of deviant arcane esotericism to harness the primordial order from chaos and the inaccessible truths on mankind's true nature and existence that it harbors.

    On their debut full-length LP for Sentient Ruin Canadian/American gore/war noise butchers Bestial Putrefaction reach the zenith of total audial barbarity, hoisting atop a fuming stockpile of severed limbs and rotting flesh the foul banner of total gore and immorality.

    A remastered compilation featuring their recent self-released "Gore Drenched Barbarism" EP on side A and their previous self-released debut demo tape on side B, the "Eternal Flesh Ripping Chaos" LP (an obvious ode to the legend of early Carcass) condenses all tracks released so far by the band under a new single effigy of total continuous terror, bringing to light the senseless audial savagery that paved the deranged duo's emergence from the nethermost pits of depravity and established them as an authentic living monument to complete chaos and inhumanity.

    Synthesized from the most outlandish outer limits of war metal, goregrind and pure noise, the band's barely held together terrorscape stands out as an authentic and barely explainable absurdity, as it launches into senseless exaggerations of audial violence and barbarity borderlining both the shocking and the unexplainable.

    £20.49

    Dutch experimental raw death metal deformity Cryptae bring you "Decrepit Collection", a glorious 12" vinyl compilation containing their unparalleled 2017 self titled debut demo tape on side A (for the first time ever on vinyl), and 2019's 20 minute single-track EP "Vestigial" on side B, both remastered to their their most sonically crushing form yet.

    This surreal artifact of complete sonic delirium revisits Cryptae's birth as an authentic error of creation and documents the early development of their hallucinatory and completely unprecedented sound as they threw derailing raw punk, spastic primitive death metal, rogue strains of underdeveloped noise and industrial and free-form improvisation into a deformed and glitched out experiment of aberrant abstract brutality.

    1. Glubroneus
    2. Cryptae
    3. Maze

    Release Date: 06/08/2021

    American technical brutal death metal absurdity Edenic Past join Sentient Ruin for a vinyl release of their synapse-twisting first ever LP 'Red Amarcord'.

    Formed by Colin Marston and Nicholas McMaster of Krallice fame along with vocalist Paulo Paguntalan of Encenathrakh, on the surreal debut offering Edenic Past unfold an absurd and ultra-brutal hallucination of futuristic aural atavism that touches lows of knuckle-dragging sonic primitivism and brutality and peaks of masterful ambient avantgarde deconstructionism that will be both too much to handle or understand for the average 'slam' knuckle brains, and too fucking brutal and ignorant for the average elitist prog nerd.

    Perhaps standing as the most imaginative and visionary 'slamming' technical brutal death metal releases ever conceived, with 'Red Amarcord' Edenic Past redefine the outer limits of brutal death metal and set an unprecedented foot in the future for the genre.
