Caustic Wound
Death Posture
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Profound Lore)
19,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Pacific Northwest s CAUSTIC WOUND (featuring members of MORTIFERUM, Cerebral Rot, Fetid, and Magrudergrind) play unrelenting and punishing brutal death-grind that captures the aesthetic and palpitations of the classic old-school era of the genre (not exceeding 1992 of course). Their debut album, Death Posture (out April 10 on CD/LP/Digital) which follows their 2018 Grinding Terror demo, sounds like that foul relic that could have been produced in 88-91 while upholding a powerful, dark, murky yet unyielding production, Death Posture eschews and lays waste to the nowadays clinical, plastic and ornamental trappings of the modern-day grind scene. In what will most likely despoil and maraud the majority of death-grind albums being released today, Death Posture renders total annihilation upon the feeble mortal coil. - CAUSTIC WOUND features members from some of the most promising new American death metal bands, Mortiferum, Cerebral Rot, and Fetid along with featuring a member from acclaimed US grindcore band Magrudergrind. - The debut CAUSTIC WOUND album Death Posture will be the pinnacle death-grind album of 2020 - For fans of early/old-school Terrorizer, Napalm Death (88-90), and Carcass (88-91)

Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The new OLD MAN Gloom album "Darkness Of Being" (aka Seminar XI) sees the notorious experimental super-group forge on their legacy after a slight suspension in uncertainty following the passing of bassist/vocalist Caleb Scofield. It was decided that the remaining members Aaron Turner (Sumac/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge), and drummer Santos Montano would continue to forge on with OLD MAN Gloom and would bring in Scofield's former Cave In bandmate, Stephen Brodsky, to take Caleb's place amongst the pulse.

Genre:Rock / Indie
The new OLD MAN Gloom album "Light Of Meaning" (aka Seminar Viii) sees the notorious experimental super-group forge on their legacy after a slight suspension in uncertainty following the passing of bassist/vocalist Caleb Scofield. It was decided that the remaining members Aaron Turner (Sumac/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge), and drummer Santos Montano would continue to forge on with OLD MAN Gloom and would bring in Scofield's former Cave In bandmate, Stephen Brodsky, to take Caleb's place amongst the pulse. "Light Of Meaning" continues OLD MAN Gloom's shenanigans following their "Ape Of God" albums (the albums where the band trolled everyone by releasing two different albums with the same album title amongst bewilderment, amusement, and outrage from people on the internet). Through monolithic sonic tapestries sewn throughout, "Light Of Meaning" blossoms as a moving tribute to Scofield where the band have even incorporated material that Scofield had laid down previously for new OMG music. "Light Of Meaning", which was recorded and mixed by three acclaimed heavy music producers, namely Matt Bayles, Kurt Ballou, and Randall Dunn, is another towering OLD MAN Gloom masterwork through earth crumbling riffs, post-hardcore brutality, sprawling noise transmissions, experimental ambient sonic subdivisions and epic impenetrable melancholy.

Despair Anthems Clear Pink Purple Splatter Vinyl Edition
LP | 2020 | CA | Original (Profound Lore)
18,89 €* 20,99 € -10%
Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Executioner's Mask is the dark post punk child of three unlikely suspects: Jay Gambit of the noise metal unit Crowhurst providing vocals, Ryan Wilson from the legendary Intestinal Disgorge lending both guitar and drum programming and Lace and Cop Warmth's Craig Mickle handles even more guitar. Offering a modern take on the classic blueprints set by bands like AFI, The Sisters Of Mercy and Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry. Hailing from equal parts Texas and Philadelphia, 2018's "True Blue" demo was gloomy and cavernous while weaving infectious hooks at every turn. Not too much sooner after, the group completed production on their Profound Lore debut "Despair Anthems". The album features production from Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, Nothing) and Ryan Schwabe (Big Thief, Algernon Caldweller) that remains both raw and satisfying throughout.

20,99 €*
Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Japan's Kruelty was formed in 2017 and play a brutal and devastating mix of beatdown hardcore and punishing doomy death metal.

Mixed by Taylor Young (Nails), "A Dying Truth" will see its CD/Digital release in March via Japan's Daymare Recordings and on vinyl release in April through Profound Lore Records.

Bell Witch & Aerial Ruin
Stygian Bough Volume 1
2LP | 2020 | CA | Original (Profound Lore)
27,99 €*
Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The debut collaboration album from doom metal giants Bell Witch and Aerial Ruin, the solo folk project of singer/songwriter Erik Moggridge, under the moniker of Stygian Bough is a culmination of the work of both artists as witnessed previously on Bell Witch's three full-length albums where Moggrdige has contributed guest vocals. With each succeeding Bell Witch release, we have seen Moggridge's involvement with Bell Witch developing, growing and getting more elaborate. "Stygian Bough: Vol 1", produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn 0))), Wolves In The Throne Room, Anna Von Hausswolff), follows up Bell Witch's colossal "Mirror Reaper" opus with Moggrdige actually being involved in the creative and writing process with the Bell Witch duo of Dylan Desmond (bass/vocals) and Jesse Shreibman (drums/synthesizers/vocals). Not only does Stygian Bough expand and broaden the alliance of Bell Witch and Aerial Ruin, but with Aerial Ruin contributing to the songwriting of this dedicated collaboration and incorporating his signature and alluring style of emotionally driven folk, along with taking the lead vocal position on this, to Bell Witch?s caliber of unearthly towering doom, Stygian Bough becomes its own singular doom metal entity unparalleled.

LP | 2018 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Sulphur Soul, the latest offering from Canadian black metal unit Gevurah, continues and builds upon the promise laid down with their 2016 debut album Hallelujah!, one of that year’s most recognized albums within the scene. With this album, the band continues to explore their more aggressive and punishing aspects while conjuring even more complex and challenging realms. The four hymns that encompass these thirty-two minutes present some of the band’s most intense and uncompromising material yet and shows how the Montreal-based duo encircle their sonic palette with a new heightened sense of brutality and atmosphere, all the while upholding their trademark dark essence and transcendental spiritual aura.

Impetuous Ritual
Unholy Congregation Of Hypocritical Ambivalence
2LP | 2015 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
28,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Received a 7.9 rating from Pitchfork. In their brief career, Australia’s Impetuous Ritual has already been recognized as one of the mightiest death metal entities in the underground today, alongside such likeminded acts as Portal (with whom Impetuous Ritual shares two members) and Mitochondrion. From their leveling, jaw-dropping live performances to the devastating, ultra-brutal, occult-driven style showcased on their Relentless Execution of Ceremonial Excrescence debut album, no death metal on the planet captures the vibe, attitude and aesthetic of Impetuous Ritual. With their anticipated follow-up to Relentless Execution, the band takes their sound even further into the depths of horror and depravity. Limited to 500 copies.

34,99 €*
Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The third album by the enigmatic Old Tower titled “The Last Eidolon” tells a sombre story of a kingdom laid to waste by its own creator through the corruption of dark magic and possession of destructive spirits. Because of wrongful decisions, spiritual rebellion and the misuse of ancient yet dangerous practices these malevolent forces started to turn against the enchanter. And so fell his once proud and powerful dominion. What was once great has now been reduced to a hollow manifestation of its old self. The long and weary process of reclaiming its former glory has begun.

22,99 €*
Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Instrumental psychedelic doom duo Insect Ark have creating uncomfortable sonicscapes that feel both intimate and icy cold since 2011. Nightmarish horror film-like visions, outer space travel, and gritty noir textures – all of this and more have been conjured up in their past records, the much-praised Portal / Well (2015) and Marrow Hymns (2018), but now, something even bigger is coming. Prepare for The Vanishing.

Release:2020 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
GODTHRYMM was formed in 2017 by vocalist/guitarist Hamish Glencross (ex-My Dying Bride/Vallenfyre/Solstice) and sees the respected UK metal luminary return to his doom metal roots, creating the music he was known to help forge with Solstice (on the legendary “New Dark Age” album) and especially with the heralded My Dying Bride from the 2000 – 2014 time period. Further adding to the GODTHRYMM pedigree of doom, joining Glencross is ex-My Dying Bride/Anathema drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels who, after some slight lineup refining (following the band’s “A Grand Reclamation” debut EP), became the core of GODTHRYMM with Glengross as the two would end up recording the colossal GODTHRYMM debut album “Reflections” (the duo would add bassist Bob Crolla following the recording of “Reflections” making GODTHRYMM a true power trio of doom) set for release on (insert release date here).

Vacivus - Annihilism
Vacivus
Annihilism
LP | 2019 | CA | Original (Profound Lore)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
With their new album Annihilism, UK death metal unit Vacivus will be poised to become one of the isle’s most prominent death metal bands. Impressions were made with their Rite Of Ascension demo EP, their Nuclear Chaos 7-inch and ultimately their Temple Of The Abyss debut LP from 2017, which saw the band make their stain within the scene. This latest, however, will see Vacivus make an even more punishing and unrelenting impact by offering a serpentine treasure that threads the fibers of dark, unyielding brutality, technical proficiency and refined musicality of the highest plateau.

An ideal and seamless myriad of what a modern-day death metal offering should embroider, this album takes the band’s sonic paradigm to a level beyond anything they’ve previously done. With the masterful production courtesy of Greg Chandler (Esoteric) in his Priory Recording studios, with final mastering via Dan Lowndes, Annihilism benefits from an exemplary sound, holding a dense and complex archetypal aesthetic, yet escalating and suffocating beyond that into a work of true death metal artistry.
Heaven's Club - Here There And Nowhere
Heaven's Club
Here There And Nowhere
LP | 2019 | CA | Original (Profound Lore)
12,64 €* 22,99 € -45%
Release:2019 / CA – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Formed in Oakland, CA, Heaven’s Club began as the project of Shiv Mehra during downtime while off tour with his band Deafheaven. It then expanded to include Deafheaven drummer Dan Tracy, Nadia Kury, Chris Natividad, Ross Peacock and Luis Mayorga. Finding ground in introspective lyricism and progressive, ethereal sonics, they achieve a careful balance between punching urgency and distant atmosphere. Recorded at Santo Studios in Oakland, CA, the band’s producer and engineer Andrew Oswald acts as a seventh member and brings a rich texture and nuance to Mehra’s vision. Of the project, Mehra says: “Heaven’s Club is the fog of memory and insubstantial fantasy. The songs reside in the liminal space between love and the end of suffering. They reach toward an ambiguous desire for peace—a deeply felt longing.”

Sanguine Eagle
Storm Mysticism
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
After years of ruminant toil, Sanguine Eagle unveil its twin debut full lengths, Storm Mysticism and Shores Of Avarice. This band is black metal in its purest essence: trendless, unyielding, and played with absolute conviction. The compositions are marked as much by resolute and stoic patience as by staggering violence, never pandering to the weakminded and eschewing any shred of the puerile amusement rife in a genre so pilfered by dilettantes.
Both works were recorded during the same winter and serve as two distinct yet complimentary chapters in the tenebrous unfolding that is Sanguine Eagle. Storm Mysticism was written initially and serves as a declaration of intent, displaying the sprawling ambience and storming black metal that defines their craft, as well as establishing the band’s conceptual path. Shores Of Avarice reveals the band taking their discipline to new, even more rapturous heights. An unfaltering and misanthropic vision emblazoned upon the seat of supreme intelligence, pushing their black metal even further into the realm of the ecstatic and ancestral.

Dreadnought - Emergence
Dreadnought
Emergence
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
For their fourth full-length album Emergence, Denver, Colorado doom-prog band Dreadnought follow-up their 2017 A Wake In Sacred Waves acclamation with an album that takes their singular multiplex and pictorial sound to new sonic realms even more heavily textile, complex, and vastly designed. This latest sees the four-piece—vocalist / guitarist / flute player Kelly Schilling, drummer / sax player Jordan Clancy, keyboardist / vocalist Lauren Vieria, and bassist / mandolin player Kevin Handlonl—delving into heavier and darker sonic territory, an aspect that was evident with their last one but has become even more fully realized.

There are a multitude of layers that establish Dreadnought’s sound, making them one of the more unique sounding bands in today’s doom / dark / progressive metal circles. Seamlessly sewing together elements from prog, doom, folk, jazz, classical /chamber, avant-garde, and even a little bit of black metal, this is the culmination of the band’s continued development and evolution, one that began in 2013 with their debut, Lifewoven.

Thematically, this album resonates with the elements of flame, tying together the ancient connection of nature’s most destructive yet purifying force with the human condition. Through these five searing tracks, the realities of this age-old cycle of rebirth are personified, beginning with the chaotic annihilation of what is and leaving behind nourishing ash to enrich what is to come. From this a new being arises, forged by these fires of self-destruction and the trials of all the lives before.
Vaura - Sables
Vaura
Sables
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The ever-evolving quartet Vaura follows up their 2013 album The Missing almost six years later with Sables, their most refined and contemplative release yet. Introspective and somber, this album finds the band shedding most of its post-metal heaviness in favor of experiments with brooding kosmische musik and the more avant-garde elements of new wave. Consisting of Josh Strawn (Azar Swan) on vocals, guitar and synthesizers, Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) on guitar, Toby Driver (Kayo Dot) on bass, and Charlie Schmid (Tombs) on drums and electronics, the band engages ever more with their UK and German prog / art rock influences to grandiose and eerie effect. While still retaining the distinctive and specific style carved out on the band’s first two releases (Selenelion in 2010 and the aforementioned The Missing), Sables is the all-vital third release, a concise collection of meditative compositions on endings and extinctions. Brilliantly complemented by the mixing and production work of legendary UK producer Peter Walsh (Scott Walker, Peter Gabriel), Vaura have delivered their best sounding, most intricate and realized album yet.

Abruptum
Vi Sonus Veris Nigrae Malitiaes
2LP | 2019 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
28,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Official reissue, and the first time ever on vinyl format, of Abruptum’s notorious third album Vi Sonus Veris Nigrae Malitiaes. Originally released in 1996 on infamous cult black metal label Full Moon Productions, this Swedish band were always seen as one of the most bizarre, strangest, and otherworldly black metal entities. Masterminded by the late IT, known as one of the most unique black metal musicians ever, the band was christened by black metal godfather Euronymous of Mayhem (who released the first two of their albums on his Deathlike Silence Productions label) as the “audial essence of pure black evil.”

This album is the only Abruptum release that solely features IT, it’s true visionary, on his own without the assistance of any other musicians. Recorded in 1995 at Peter Tagtgren’s Abyss Studios, in what ended up being the most bizarre recording session Tagtgren has ever endured, the album consists of one long improvised track clocking in at an hour’s length (edited meticulously to fit the 2xLP format), written and performed solely by IT. It consists of blackened horror-scapes, torturous sounds of noisy droning guitars, never ending feedback, thunderous pounding drums, and painful screams and moans of agony and despair.
Hissing - Permanent Destitution

Permanent Destitution
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Profound Lore)

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Seattle, Washington’s Hissing engage in dark, dissonant, cacophonous, inverted death metal noise and with their debut album, Permanent Destitution, the three-piece have created a nihilistic vision of deranged otherworldly audial pandemonium. A soundscape of pure enveloping darkness and unrelenting chaos, it deconstructs and builds itself through walls and layers of pummeling turmoil and disarray generated through twisted, angular guitar work and fretboard annihilation, surgically cold and calculated death march drums and monolithic bass, all with a dark overbearing ambience. The added touch of droning noise segments, also crucial to the band’s sound, mixed with the doomy industrial components, become that final element to make this release a towering monument of primal avant-deathnoise.

Impetuous Ritual
Blight Upon Martyred Sentience
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Australia’s Impetuous Ritual follow up their last album Unholy Congregation Of Hypocritical Ambivalence with their new musical abomination of ambient death metal surrealism Blight Upon Martyred Sentience, which takes their unhinged vortex-like chaos into more abstract, cavernous, and otherworldly realms.

With a sound even less conventional, weirder and alien than its two predecessors, this release harnesses a much darker atmosphere (if one could even imagine that would be possible), veering off into abstract noise and dark ambient, creating a more depraved, violent, torturous and malevolent audial canvas than any other band in extreme death metal today—the band has transcended and inverted the genre unto something of their own vision unparalleled.

Australian ambient death metal surrealists return with an even more abstract and depraved transcendent entry

Luminous Vault
Charismata
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Profound Lore)

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Formed in 2014 by acclaimed NYC musician MDdL (aka Oneirogen), the band evolved into a duo with SS (of Artificial Brain) on bass and combined militaristic death / black metal with colossal drum machine beats with ethereal synth passages sounding like early ’90s Greek black metal and Godflesh amalgamated.

Charismata, the duo’s second EP (which follows their 2015 EP Communion released on limited edition cassette on Graceless Recordings), is a primal, hypnotic, and hallucinatory set of four songs, conjuring mythological experiences of death, rebirth, and battles of the inner self.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Black Mecha is the very strange, minimalist electronic project of Wold mastermind Fortress Crookedjaw. A theory of mind / aural operation inspires these raw sound waves, directed by the electric musical poetry of Internal Masonry, supplemented with sci-fi driven surreal and minimalist analogue patterns.

I.M. Mentalizing presents audio realms of glitchy system mental warfare through spazzed robotic thought inducement mechanisms, churned out by penetrating ever-scanning inner lasers.

11,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Wife is the solo electronic music project of multi-instrumentalist producer James Kelly, also known as the mastermind behind forward-thinking acclaimed post-black metal band Altar Of Plagues. Starting with the Stoic EP in 2012 via Left_blank, Wife signed with respected electronic music label Tri-Angle Records (The Haxan Cloak, Forest Swords, Evian Christ, etc.) for his debut full length What’s Between in 2014 (co-produced by The Haxan Cloak). A more song-oriented, electronic-pop affair, that album quickly established Kelly as a producer of note alongside his aforementioned peers, while he subsequently became more active on the live circuit. With Standard Nature, Kelly has created a bridge between What’s Between and the more experimental aura of his first EP. The result is the best produced material yet—heavy, cacophonous, more intense and dynamic sounds layer through meticulously crafted electronics, samples and beats.

Asphalt For Eden
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Profound Lore)
23,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Conceived in New Jersey’s then-emerging DIY scene of the late 1990s, cult hip-hop act Dälek pioneered an intriguing fusion of progressive lyrical prowess and sonic experimentation. With unique dark ambient / rhythmic noise elements, the trio was described as a mix of Public Enemy and My Bloody Valentine. Their singular sound was documented on four milestone albums released on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings imprint, alongside live actions supporting the likes of Tool and Melvins and collaborative works with artists such as Faust, before the group ceased regular activities in 2011.

In the spring of 2015, mastermind MC Dälek (a.k.a. Will Brooks) revived the project with the blessing of ex-member / co-producer Oktopus. Featuring new members DJ rEk and Mike Swarmbots, Dälek presents their newest release and first proper full-length since 2009’s Gutter Tactics.

A formidable display of true hip hop artistry, Asphalt for Eden is a creative peak for the forward-thinking trio and will generate renewed interest in their iconoclastic sound.
