Pre-orders for the new albums by Sannhet, Boduf Songs, King Woman, and Mastery are now live. We will be offering a discounted package option for those that want to pre-order the vinyl on the first day. Sannhet - Revisionist Sannhet’s second full-length, Revisionist, is set for release on March 3rd via San Francisco’s Flenser Records. The 9-track LP is a dizzying concoction of math-metal intricacy, prismatic pop shimmer, and dense metallic crush, taking the metalgaze sound of like minded modern metal combos like Deafheaven or Alcest and adding more dynamic indie rockisms and churning noise rock crunch. Watch the teaser video for Revisionist here. The Revisionist will be available on CD and black, white, and orange colored vinyl. Boduf Songs - Stench of Exist Boduf Songs’ newest material on Stench Of Exist is still shadowy: a drowsy, druggy, dreamy record that unfolds languorously, laced with mysterious electronic filigree. Stench of Exist is gorgeously intimate and transforms the minimal into maximal with layers of electro-detritus wreathed in lush guitar strums, street-side field recordings, reverberating pianos and softly crooned vocals. It is a record of rain and cities and night-time. The collision of arabesque tonality with the electronic sound and ambiences brings to mind the promise of Blade Runner – half-asleep at 4am and slightly medicated, with the pyramids and flame spewing cityscape and eggshell-within-eggshell pronouncements in downpour glowing against the fluttering eyelids in the almost-dreaming unter-mind. Listen to the new Boduf Songs track "My Continuing Battle With Material Reality" here. The Stench of Exist will be released on vinyl and CD. The vinyl will available on black and limited edition transparent purple vinyl. King Woman - Doubt Bay Area, CA’s King Woman, fronted by vocalist Kristina Esfandiari (Ex-Whirr, Miserable), will be releasing their first proper EP release on February 17th, 2015. Titled Doubt, this EP marks King Woman’s first release with a full band and is a dark, brooding gem of introspective heaviness. Doubt finds King Woman awash with churning and crumbling distortion providing a roiling, blackened backdrop for Esfandiari's throaty, bewitching vocals like a twisted fusion of PJ harvey, Sunn 0))) and Black Sabbath. Listen to a King Woman track off of an earlier release here. Doubt will be released on cassette as well as black and limited milky clear vinyl. Mastery - Valis Valis is the first proper Mastery full-length and the most extreme record The Flenser has ever released. As its name and sigil demands, Mastery is a vessel to ascend the partial mind: one impulsive and chaotic, the other of collected illumination. A meditation unto the will subconscious. The solo black metal entity is the product of mastermind Ephemeral Domignostika (Pale Chalice, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Horn of Dagoth). Once a follower in the tradition of fellow Bay Area acts Leviathan, Crebain and Weakling, Mastery has evolved into something more. Valis is like a form of free jazz black metal—twisted and complex, with upwards of 100 riffs per song. Listen to an older Mastery track here. Strictly limited to 250 copies on black vinyl.
