    fm_croce_cover Father Murphy - Croce LP/CD/CS We are now taking advanced orders for Father Murphy’s “Croce” on vinyl, CD, and cassette. This dark psychedelic / industrial cabaret is a religion-themed concept album entitled Croce (“Cross” in Italian), one side representing suffering and sacrifice and the flip reflecting what comes after—the end of suffering, resurrection, or perhaps oblivion. The work was recorded by John Dieterich in Albuquerque, NM, and mixed by Greg Saunier. Emerging from shadowy atmospheres, Croce often springs forth with unexpected blurts of impossibly catchy noise pop. At other times it can be richly operatic like some twisted musical that details the trials and tribulations of the crucifixion. Pre-order now from The Flenser store.
    0298828805930_main Bell Witch - Longing DLP Back in print! Bell Witch is a minimalist doom two-piece from Seattle comprised of Adrian Guerra and Dylan Desmond (of Samothrace fame). With only the bare minimum at their disposal, the duo’s massive, crushing soundscapes are executed with just bass, drums and dual-vocal pummel. Uniquely sorrowful, it sounds as close to Skepticism as it is to Codeine, their debut full-length Longing is an hour and ten minutes of doomed desolation, sadness and sorrow—a time-stretching journey through darkness, pain and suffering. Originally released on CD by Profound Lore Records, the album was one of the most important doom albums of 2012 and featured on numerous year-end lists. Now available on vinyl, Longing is packaged in a thick, old-style case-wrapped gatefold jacket with insert. Shipping April 2015. Pre-order direct from The Flenser.
