Lost Grave


New from Lost Grave:

Police State‘s LOST GRAVE debut Rot In Prejudice ( R.I.P ) is a sonic bulldozer of hardcore/crust/sludge fury. This York, PA three piece plows through social/political topics ( racism, police brutality, income inequality, marijuana legalization, religion etc.) with a seemingly endless supply of rage and contempt. Lumbering riffs, stop on a dime blasts, and a monstrous dual vocal delivery, paint a bleak landscape rife with systemic moral decay.

Rot In Prejudice was recorded and produced by Kevin Bernsten at DEVELOPING NATIONS studio( Ilsa, Magrudergrind, Full Of Hell ).

Eleventh Key

New from Eleventh Key:

The Owls Are Not What They Seem is the dark ambient brainchild of multi-instrumentalist & visual artist, Bobby Yagodich. Having created three full albums in shadowy isolation, “Gnosis” departs from his normal convention by means of collaboration. Guests include Max Shoop ( Horde of the Eclipse ), Dustin Nispel ( These Seeds ) and Brian Magar ( Albatwitch, Layr ). This formation has created Gnosis, an hour long, auditory blood pact rooted in funereal soundscapes, minimalist black metal, and pure sepulchral din. Densely layered noise, brooding guitars, blood curdling violins and grief stricken vocals conjure ghastly visions through a fantastic world enshrouded in pure darkness. Enter the abyss.

STONE BREATH‘s new CD album, Children of Hum, is available for pre-order. Returning to the 2-person line-up of their second album (some 15 years later), the band has delivered perhaps their most cohesive collection of songs in their long career. The 6 all-new album tracks are paired with 6 bonus tracks for almost an hour of music.

The print is also available separately HERE


Up next on Hand/Eye will be the second full-length from ALBATWITCH, If Corporations are People, Why Won’t They Die? The duo continues the anarcho-experimentalism from their first album with the mix of blackened metallic crust, acoustic folk, drone, and noise getting angrier and darker as they age. Stay tuned…
