While supplies last, we are offering BOTH new MONO albums within one amazing package. Each album is in its own inner sleeve, housed in a custom die-cut matte varnished CD gatefold jacket featuring the full cover artwork by world-renowned artist, Pat Perry. The inner panels of the gatefold have die-cut holes in the shape of some of the figures from the cover. Click on the thumbnail image to see larger mockups.

The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness are a pair of new albums by MONO. Recorded simultaneously yet conceptually and creatively disparate, the two act as both opposing and complementary sides to a story. No strangers to narratives, the twin albums explore familiar themes for the band: Hope and hopelessness, love and loss, immense joy and unspeakable pain. Those elemental parts of life and the complicated relationships they create have never been more resonant through MONO's music than they are here.

The Last Dawn is the first of these two companion albums, and is the "lighter" of the two, thematically and melodically. It contains undoubtedly some of MONO's strongest songs ever, drawing on an array of influences from minimalist film score to vintage shoegaze. It is MONO at their absolute purest, executing an uncanny, unspoken dialogue with each other without the dozens of stringed instruments that have been so prominent throughout their catalog in recent years. The songs are also noticeably more efficient - there hasn't been a MONO full-length record that fit on a single slab of vinyl since 2003's One Step More And You Die - and the album benefits immeasurably from this streamlined approach.

Rays of Darkness is the first MONO album in 15 years to feature no orchestral instruments whatsoever. That fact alone is remarkable given the band's reputation for sweeping, dramatic instrumentals that recall Oscar-worthy film scores. Instead, Rays of Darkness more closely resembles a jet engine taking off inside a small, crowded auditorium. It is MONO's blackest album ever, a collection of scorched riffs, doom rhythms, and an unexpected contribution from post-hardcore pioneer Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy. The album ends with the smoldering wreckage of distorted guitars and ominous drones playing out a eulogy to the days when MONO shot blinding rays of light through seemingly endless darkness.

This is the limited 2xCD (gatefold) version, which combines both albums within one packaging. The outer panels of the gatefold merge the 2 separate album covers by artist Pat Perry into one continuous piece of art. The inner panels of the gatefold have die-cut holes in the shape of some of the figures from the cover. Through those cut-outs, the inner sleeves, in which the CDs are placed, can be seen.

After the release of “Phase of Perplexity” in 2004 and “Technicolor” in 2010, "Supra" is Dioramic's 3rd studio album.

The band’s songwriting has steadily evolved over the years, and "Supra" reflects - so far - the peak of this evolution: we are not exaggerating when we say it is a truly mind-blowing piece of heavy, intricate yet catchy music. Dioramic venture into the vastly unexplored musical territory between Muse-ish vocal hooklines laid over odd but catchy chord progressions, and moments of modern technical metal's unprecedented rhythmical complexity.

Main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Arkadi Zaslavski's talent has surprised friends, fans and journalists alike from the band's early days. In recent years, Dioramic have focused their activities on select support shows for bands like Meshuggah, Skindred, or Every Time I Die, as well as appearances at festivals like Highfield or Southside. The main reason why the band did not play out more was the enormous and rather time-consuming success of drummer Anton’s alter ego “ZEDD”, who recently won a grammy and who, for understandable reasons could, not keep up his commitment to Dioramic. That's why the band recently replaced him with Paul Seidel (War From A Harlot's Mouth), who also joined The Ocean a few months later in 2013. The line-up issues explain the long creation phase of "Supra", which was already recorded in 2011, but could not be finished until the end of 2013. Now it's done, and as we all know, haste makes waste!

The CD edition comes in a slick digipak with 12-pages booklet.

PREORDER - this will ship 1st week of September!

Berlin's EARTHSHIP are back with their third album, Withered, released via Pelagic Records in September.

With this album, EARTHSHIP have matured even more towards their own idiosyncratic take on contemporary metal, sludge and stoner rock. There is the occasional hint at an old school Swedish death metal vibe, but it never takes long until those moments find their release in those beautiful, warm, heavy stoner riffs.What sets this album apart, is a plethora of great musical ideas. In fact, Withered could almost be a "best of" collection of riffs; riffs taller than the mountains, backed by lyrics deeper than the sea.

Withered also sees the introduction of more melodic vocals, such as in the monumental track Serpent Cult, or the clearly Sabbath-influenced opening riff of Dead Faint. Singer, guitarist and producer Jan Oberg has given the record a rich, massive and clear production that more than does justice to the songs.

Watch the video for the track Serpent Cult here.

We surely won't need to tell you much about RED FANG. John Sherman's powerful drumming and Aaron Beam's distinctive vocal tone make this band one of the most exciting rock'n'roll outfits of the present tense… but you may need a quick reminder with regards to who is KUNZ: the drum & bass noise rock duo consists of former THE OCEAN bass player Louis Jucker and former THE OCEAN drummer Luc Hess, currently also in COILGUNS.

RED KUNZ is the marriage of these 2 bands: RED FANG's Aaron Beam and John Sherman meet KUNZ' Louis Jucker and Luc Hess. Conceived within a single week in Switzerland, TEETH, HAIR & SKIN displays 20 minutes of raw bass riffing and double-drum battles,shaped into 5 somehow surprisingly catchy rock songs.

PELAGIC RECORDS in association with HUMMUS RECORDS brings you a nicely packaged vinyl and handmade CD version of this rare gem.

After 2 years of touring North America, Europe, Russia, Asia and Australia, The Ocean have resurfaced with what could be their deepest and most trailblazing piece of work to date, Pelagial: a progressive musical journey, written, recorded, mixed and to-be-performed-live as one single 54-minutes piece of music. Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) at Fascination Street Studios in Örebrö, Sweden, Pelagial is set to be released on April 26th / 29th (Europe) and April 30th (North America / world) through Metal Blade.

This is the special acrylic box set edition of the album, released through Pelagic Records. These heavy acrylic boxes contain the CD digipak and an extra DVD; which will be "buried" underneath 5 thick acrylic layers, coloured in different hues of blue, each layer reflecting one of the 5 pelagial depth zones.

These acrylic layers and boxes have been silk-screen printed by hand with artwork by Martin Kvamme. The combined effect of the design printed on the individual layers, and the material thickness (up to 2 cm!), creates a 3D visual effect when the layers are stacked on top of one another, and looked at from different angles and in different lighting conditions.

The sheer weight of these boxes is more than 1kg per box! Manufacturing is extremely difficult and expensive, hence the high price.
This boxset also comes with an extra DVD featuring a 5:1 dolby surround mix of the instrumental version of Pelagial, and the Pelagial movie by Craig Murray. This movie, which is the meticulous work of shooting, cutting and editing for a whole year, completes the holistic music and visual art project that is Pelagial. For the full experience of the album, you must see the film!

  • strictly limited to 1000 copies
  • 2 CDs (vocal and instrumental album): 108 minutes of new music!

After their critically acclaimed debut album Look and Behold (Pelagic Records 2011), Lo!, hailing from Sydney, Australia, are now back with their second album Monstrorum Historia... and it really is a monster of an album, an angry beast spitting nails and fire in every direction. One of the refreshing things about this band is the way they weave different styles of music into their own, heavy garment: there are plenty of faster parts, relentlessly driven by heavy-hitting drummer Adrian Griffin's extraordinary playing, but there are also slow, doomy, atmospheric passages that suck the listener into Lo!'s dark cosmos. There are anthemic metal riffs, but there is also the energy of the more abrasive side of hardcore in their songs, represented by bands like Cursed or Black Breath...

Lo! have come to remind you of glorious times, times when Mastodon were using samples of Jurassic Park to kick off their records”,Metal Hammer (UK) wrote about Look and Behold, and Big Cheese added: “this gang of Australian brawlers sound like Beecher and Converge going at it in a cage match… sludgy hardcore hasn't sounded this good in ages!”

Good things are lined up at the band's horizon: after a very active year 2012 in Australia, including shows with Russian Circles, Doomriders, Sleep and The Ocean, Lo! are finally coming over to Europe this spring – to support Cult of Luna and The Ocean on their upcoming tour. Lo! have also been confirmed for a performance at Roadburn and Impetus Festivals in April. Make sure to check them out live, as they are truly a sight to behold on stage!

The monochrome artwork perfectly represents the spirit of Monstrorum Historia. The CD version comes in a nice digipak printed on the rough side of the cardboard. Pelagic Records is also offering a limited silk-screened Roadburn poster,  www.pelagic-records.com/poster.

PREORDER - will ship April 20th

From the darkest parts of Northern Sweden, THE OLD WIND blows... raw and cold, just like its origin and heritage. This constellation of 5 is a new project incepted, after years of absence from the live-scene, by Tomas Liljedahl, former vocalist of the legendary BREACH, who must be counted as one of the most visionary and influential bands of the past 2 decades - a band without whom none of all these newer sub-genres of heavy music that have the word „post“ in them, would exist.

Tomas wrote and recorded every instrument on Feast On Your Gone all by himself: „TOW started growing in my mind when I was in need of theraphy. I´ve had a couple of really dark years, and I needed to project the hard times through something... and I found that writing words and music were the best way to get these demons out of my system“, comments Liljedahl. Make no mistake about it, Feast On Your Gone is a vile, cold, ugly record.

Originally incepted as a studio project, Liljedahl soon realized that these rough, abrasive songs needed to be performed live, with a real band. And so he teamed up with his former BREACH band mates Niklas Quintana (guitar) and Kristian Andersson (bass guitar), added drummer Karl Daniel Liden to the lineup and asked Robin Staps of Pelagic Records & The Ocean to join on 3rd guitar. „BREACH was probably THE one most important band for me ever, period. So when Tomas asked me to join his new band, I felt honored of course. The prospect of playing some shows with these guys in the future is very exciting, to say the least“, comments Staps.

This album is the first sign of life of a band which consists of old veterans of the European heavy music scene – still, a juvenile band that has not yet played a single live show! “Rehearsals are scheduled for May 2013, and everyone of us is really pumped to get this going”, says Liljedahl.

The CD version comes in a 3-panel digipak.

The Sky Remains The Same As Ever is a nearly two-hour document of the recording sessions for You Are There, and the several worldwide tours that followed its release. In addition to the dozen live songs that are documented in all their sweaty fury, the film captures the decidedly less glamorous aspects of being an underground rock band from a foreign country, expressing sentiments through body language out of necessity, and driving...lots and lots of driving. Most effectively, the film displays the friendships that have made MONO's journeys enjoyable, and the fanatical dedication that has made it all possible.

Danish post rock 5-piece The Shaking Sensations' upcoming album "Start Stop Worrying" will be released March 22nd (GAS) / 25th (Europe). For the follow-up to critically-acclaimed "East Of Youth", the band has teamed up with producer Matt Bayles (ISIS, Mastodon, Caspian, Russian Circles). The result is a more mature sound, emphasizing the heavier side of their sound, whilst keeping its oftentimes ambient and dreamy quality.

"...The Shaking Sensations’ embrace of post-rock’s minimalist stylings precludes genuine innovation, but their fuzzy meditations brilliantly conjure frustrated hopes and longings. For those skeptical about the notion of this genre, these young Danes may prove its territory with possibilities yet to be mined...", Prog Magazine (UK) wrote,

and Big Cheese (UK) added: "They are part of what I hope is a new generation who take bands like Mono as an influence as much as they do Godspeed and are ready and willing to carry the torch for expressive instrumental based rock music to a new legion of fans"; and gave the album a 4 out 5.

The Shaking Sensations have been touring extensively in the last couple of years, supporting acts such as Caspian, And So I Watch You From Afar and Russian Circles. For fans of EF, Explosions in the Sky, Caspian, Efterklang, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mono..

"What's all the fuss about?", Decibel Magazine asked... well, it's about FAMILY!

A new leader of the Brooklyn pack, FAMILY combines lush classic rock flavor with modern progressive heaviness on its astonishing debut album, Portrait. The balance Family strikes is one perfected by precious few bands. To bring the vibes of our forefathers -- the finesse, the hooks, the grooves of say, Led Zeppelin -- into the modern day metal underground; to take a classic rock sense of musicality and use it to make something that’s fiercely original, crushingly heavy and not “retro” at all... this is a fine line indeed, a delicate tension that is rarely achieved.

Based in Brooklyn, Family is comprised of two native New Yorkers and two Deep Southerners, bringing together a wealth of musical influences and life experiences. Guitarist, primary songwriter, and native Manhattanite Steven Gordon writes for preeminent music blog MetalSucks. Second guitarist Joshua Lozano, a Queens native, was employed for years at the legendary CBGB, and also plays with avant-black metallers Cobalt and former Swans vocalist Jarboe.

Swiss trio Coilguns are set to release their debut album "Commuters" on February 22nd (GAS) and 25th (rest of Europe) CD & digital formats; and March 15th (GAS) / 18th (rest of Europe) vinyl. The CD version comes with a 5-panel digipak which folds out in the shape of an upside down cross :-)

"Commuters" was entirely recorded live, every song in one take. The incorporation of synths and more guitar and bass loops has added more depth to their original punky yet heavy sound. Some tracks on the album are featuring up to 5 guitar players at the same time. No overdubs or edits have been made on this record except for the vocals.

Coilguns have been pushing their boundaries to find a unique and most certainly odd sound, and by simplifying their songwriting, they've intensified and emphasized their heavyness.

In late October, KHOMA (Umeå, Sweden) will release All Erodes, the epilogue to the highly acclaimed albums Tsunami (2004), The Second Wave (2006) and A final Storm (2010). All Erodes features 9 previously unreleased songs written between 2002 and 2012 and will be released in a strictly limited edition on vinyl with silk-screened cover art!

- “We ́ve recorded a lot of material for every record that we have had to leave out or didn’t have time to finalize... but we really like all these songs and wanted to do something with them... the idea is that 'All Erodes' – spanning songs from all three stages – will sum up and close this part of Khoma's history”, says guitarist Johannes.

KHOMA was born in Umeå in 2003, melding the aggression of the long established local hardcore scene and the burgeoning pop scene. The band - consisting of several members of Cult of Luna and P.G Lost – soon became a breathing space where the different styles could merge.

After "The Second Wave" (Roadrunner) and "A Final Storm" (Selective Notes / Pelagic), here is Khoma's latest offering: a harsh, emotional & intense blend of sweeping melodies and roaring guitars!

"The Serpent, The Prophet & The Whore" was inspired by a novel by J.G. Rawls entitled The Chronoception; and the prevalent themes of falling from grace, primal fear, physical pain, loneliness and mystical visions resonate loud and painfully within this Swiss quintet's second album.

The music was composed with these themes in mind and thus emerged darker and more tortured than what the band had done before, driving the contemplative aspects of their sound towards even bleaker aural landscapes, while pushing its violent side further towards armageddon...

"a hugely promising debut that is a forcefully atmospheric blend of thick, weighty riffs, dreamy ambient soundscapes and desolate noise (...) There's a wealth of moods and styles that are subtly woven into Abraham's fabric and exploited in the most effective of ways." - Terrorizer

"Powerful, atmospheric, dark, meditative, angry, forceful" - Visions, 9/12

"brick-heavy riffs meet a mighty but at all times delicate rhythmic base, flanked by psychedelic guitar lines and desperate vocals that at numerous moments are also delivered in a clean way... a husky debut." - Rock Hard, 8/10

"This is so intense that it almost hurts physically. ABRAHAM devour their listeners and suck them down in their maelstrom of hatred and desperation" - Metal Hammer, 5/7

"ABRAHAM create a challenging, holistic post-sound in the truest and best sense of the word" - Legacy, 12/15

"Since Samael and Celtic Frost, the end of all times has not been sung about in a more charming way" - Intro

Swedish postrock icons EF deliver an array of beautiful, lengthy instrumental songs on their 3rd and latest full-length album (2010).

"It’s a revisit to the strengths of Mogwai, the tones and soundscapes of Explosions In The Sky, and the more successful vocal inclusions in the genre – a distant Sigur Ros comparison is fair, though more in line with The Album Leaf and recent Eluvium - never drawing attention to the singers individually, while making better the whole of the atmosphere of the music at hand... They clearly know their f'ing post-rock." - Sputnik Music

With their 2nd studio album „Acid Mist tomorrow“, French metal experimentalists HYPNO5E create a unique musical realm. You could call it „ambient metal“ or „fusion metal“; there is the airy playfulness of modern day′s CYNIC in their songwriting, but the melodic, mellow side is only half of the picture. The other side is dark and crushingly heavy, but the airy serenity always comes back at one point: this is what makes „Acid Mist Tomorrow“ so interesting and captivating.

After 2 full US tours and more than 200 shows alongside bands such as GOJIRA and even ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, HYPNO5E are no longer just a „French phenomenon“. The 4-piece′s live shows display a holistic approach to the arts: with video projections and conceptual lighting being an integral part of the spectacle, HYPNO5E create a mesmerizing atmosphere that sucks the listener into their dark cosmos. The band was recently seen supporting legendary fusion metallers CYNIC across Europe.

"Acid Mist Tomorrow" trägt eine emotionale Dimension mit sich, die nur wenige Veröffentlichungen aufspannen können. Schwermütig, trostlos, geradezu verzweifelt klingen die knapp 52 Minuten - und das zu jeder Zeit absolut authentisch, konsequent und Gänsehaut verursachend." - Metal.de, 10 / 10

Lo!′s unpolished, abrasive sound calls up the image of a derailed freight-train, crushing everything in its path, ripping up the soil before coming to a flaming halt in the middle of the lifeless Moroccan hammada... Lo! - hailing from Sydney, Australia - follow bands like Old Man Gloom on their path down the dirt-trail of sludgy, noisy hardcore - but the band finds their own distinct sideways soon. That′s why "Look and Behold" sounds surprisingly fresh, from the first feedback of opener "Hath" to the last waning cymbals of closing track "Fire at the Child Actor′s Guild". Atmospheric electronic interludes such as the elegiac "Seraphim" or "Doth" give the listener some space to take a breath in between the assault of mighty groove-riffs and berserk drum attacks and further add to the diversity of the whole damn thing.

"a sludgy and abrasive (though delicious) stew, seasoned with all kinds of exotic time signatures and a hint of Mastodon" - Blunt Magazine

"Seltsamer Name, coole Musik! LO! kredenzen uns auf ihrem ersten Full-Length-Werk ein reizvolles Postcore-Abenteuer, das sich im Spannungsfeld zwischen Cult Of Luna, Breach und Burst bewegt. Die Combo agiert rhythmisch sehr agil und variabel, Genre-artiges, stereotypes Riff-Gewalze sucht man auf "Look And Behold" größtenteils vergebens. LO! wechseln gerne und häufig das Tempo, der Ideenreichtum ist beachtlich und die Jungs schaffen es mühelos, ihre Musik fließen zu lassen. Es ist der Kontrastreichtum, der LO! anders macht. Abgerundet wird diese mitreißende Scheibe von einer transparenten, kraftvoll pushenden Produktion, die sämtliche Instrumente inklusive des facettenreichen Gesangs bestens beleuchtet. Klasse!" - Rock Hard (8 / 10)

This EP has a total of 6 tracks by 2 different THE OCEAN-related side-projects!

Coilguns is guitarist Jona Nido, drummer Luc Hess and bass player / vocalist Louis Jucker, all of who also play in THE OCEAN. The 3 tracks on this split CD are merely a first sign of life of this promising new outfit. For fans of Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan or Death From Above 1979. The band will be on tour throughout Europe in September.

K U N Z is nothing less and nothing more than The Ocean Collective’s current rythm section, consisting of Louis Jucker (bass / vocals) and Luc Hess (drums). K U N Z stands for minimalist instrumentation, exuberating live-improvisations and the sheer raw energy of good old 3-minutes noise-rock songs. The band is known for experimenting with different live set-ups; playing on moving plattforms, in the middle of the room or trapped in cages.

"Fetter Scheiß! Das Debüt strotzt nur so vor mächtigen Riffwänden, dreckigen Grooves und so einigen Songperlen... Fans von Bands wie MASTODON, BARONESS, ACID BATH oder GHOST BRIGADE sollten hier goldrichtig liegen.“ (9/10) – HEAVY
