MONO - "Rays Of Darkness " LP + download

 

 

PREORDER - LPs will ship mid October!

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.

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 standard vinyl version. 3mm spine, black wax.

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.

WANG WEN have forged an identity for themselves as the most prominent instrumental band in China. They have spent the past 15 years refusing to compromise on their sound, and it’s paid off; the band were among the first to play outside of China, and now have seven studio albums and a split vinyl (with Swedish instrumentalists, PG.LOST). To celebrate their fifteenth year together, the band recorded Eight Horses. But as ever, they did it their way, and this time it was something truly special and unique.

Eight Horses was recorded in a studio that the band built themselves, within the walls of the Echo Library in Dalian. The recordings took place whilst the library was still open to the public; if you listen closely, you might even catch the sound of people talking and going about their business in the background. Recording in such a vibrant and open space - surrounded by books and people who had come along to watch WANG WEN – created an inspirational and creative environment for the band to work in.

The resulting album is more vivid - bolder and bigger - than it would have been if recorded in the confines of a more traditional recording studio. The album showcases the band in a more mature light, but retains the creative identity they’ve built up over the past decade and a half.

Having already toured Europe with Pelagic label-mates, MONO, and shared stages with the likes of Mogwai, the band are eager to share their new music with their ever-growing worldwide fanbase. Eight Horses is only being released on vinyl (with download code). 2xLP in a slick gatefold cover. Black vinyl.

Swedish instrumentalists PG.LOST received a lot of press attention because of an American individual who scored a record deal by using their music and pretending it was his own. It does make sense, as PG.LOST are an orchestra of the heart. No wonder that some get confused, and start mistaking their music for something private…

PG.LOST is a Swedish band of many directions. Their sound is throbbing with great melancholy, but there is also a certain element of dirty rock n' roll in it, as in the crushingly heavy closing section of monumental track Desperdicio (Part II), or in the rough, roomy drum sound in general.

For this release, PG.LOST have teamed up with Chinese leading post-rock band WANG WEN, who have recently been awarded "best instrumental rock band in China" at the 2013 Midi Awards. WANG WEN are popular in their home country, but they have also played shows with MOGWAI and supported MONO on several European dates in 2012. WANG WEN counters PG.LOST’s fiery, outward-looking track with three subdued and inward-looking sketches.

This split 12" vinyl record includes two 10-minute tracks by PG.Lost, and 3 tracks by Wang Wen. Mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna). Comes in a slick gatefold cover and in 2 different vinyl colors.

Swiss noisemongers KRUGER are set to release their 5th studio album in early October. After a tour with Gojira last year and armed with a new guitar player and thirteen years of noise expertise, the quintet is ready to unleash Adam and Steve.

Produced by the band and mixed by Cult of Luna's Magnus Lindberg, Adam and Steve sees KRUGER venture further into their very own dark sonic territories, and reaffirms their status as one of Europe's prime noise metal or post-metal acts.

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 DIORAMICc. 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. 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 LP edition comes with 6 printed cards with additional artwork and lyrics. 250 copies on white wax, 250 copies on white wax with orange haze. Looks insane!

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.

Christian Brix is responsible for the amazing hand-drawn artwork of Withered: the vinyl version comes in a gatefold cover, half/half colour-split transparent turquoise and transparent beige wax.

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.

THIS IS A PREORDER - VINYLS WILL SHIP NOT BEFORE MID MAY!

On May 23rd (GAS) / 26th (rest of Europe), Pelagic Records will release CULT OF LUNA's audio book Eviga Riket on vinyl.
Eternal Music is the music-only part of audio book / DVD Eviga Riket, which was originally released independently by the band in 2010. Eviga Riket continues the story of Holger Nilsson, who lived in the 1920s and who first lost his family and then his mind.

While the DVD that came with the book was oscillating between text readings and music, the vinyl release of Eternal Music is excluding the readings, and emphasizing the music - laden with sadness and melancholy, these rather quiet tunes are closer to soundtrack-music then to the band's usual sonic realms. While Eviga Riket was without doubt a fascinating experience, listening to the music in one go, without interrupting text readings, is a new and entirely different experience.

Eternal Music will be released as a 12" vinyl record, along with silk-screened cover art, printed in metallic golden ink on thick 500 gsm cardboard. The backside of the cover sheet shows a new illustration by Joris Vanpoucke that has not been used in the original audio book. 500 copies on special mix-coloured gold / black vinyl and 500 copies on black vinyl (180 gram)

In late October 2012, KHOMA (Umeå, Sweden) released 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.

- “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!

Comes with a 2-folded / 3 page silk-screened poster-style cardboard cover; hand-made!!! The vinyls are silver with black.

Featuring 2 members of CULT OF LUNA !!!!

Pelagic Records now brings you a vinyl release of „A Final Storm“.

This is not a Pelagic release, but we thought you guys might be interested in what your fellow worshippers of doom in Abraham and Coilguns have come up with secretly behind our backs! 40 minutes of new music by those 2 fine Swiss outfits are on display here.

Abraham's contribution to this split record is one very long and dark track. The bearded quintet, who is currently in the process of writing a new record, delivers one quite experimental track, which once more showcases their own unique approach to low-tuned sludge-metal.

Coilguns are experimenting no less on this split. All three songs are very different, ranging from very low tuned straight hardcore à la Cursed to ambient arpeggios... and even a crazy 70's rock jam, featuring Pete Adams from Savannah's
heavy rock heroes Baroness, made it onto this split.

2nd pressing on clear red vinyl available February 1st 2014!

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.

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 vinyl version comes with hand silk-screened cover art; printed on thick 650 gram cardboard that is as rough as the music. Clear red vinyl.

The first edition of the "Pelagial" acrylic box sets sold out by preorder within just 9 days, and currently gets traded on Discogs for up to 400 € per piece… Since a lot of people have been asking about these boxes, we decided to release a 2nd edition, rather than having resellers cash in on our work and creativity.

What has also fueled the desire to run a 2nd edition, is what you could call "perfectionism". We carry this burden, here at Pelagic… the first edition was a truly experimental packaging project, and naturally this means that there were some mistakes, or let's say, some things were not ideal. All of these issues have now been resolved: the outer material is slightly thicker, making the outer cases less prone to get damaged. Also, the boxes and the acrylic rails inside, on which the acrylic layers rest, are slightly higher, so that the layers no longer press down on the gatefolds inside the boxes. We have also made sure that the protective paper gets peeled off from one side by the manufacturing company, so that we won't have to spend weeks in the warehouse again, peeling until our finger nails bleed...

  • To keep the exclusiveness of the first edition for those people who were fast enough to order it, these new box sets will come with different (but related) print designs on the layers. We will give you updates over the next few weeks. The vinyl color is different too: the 2nd edition comes on beautiful 3-colour-split wax, each vinyl with a different oceanic color combination. There are 350 copies made.
  • These box sets also come with the "Pelagial" DVD, directed by Craig Murray!
  • …and no, we will not have these box sets for sale on our upcoming tour. One box weights 7,4 kg alone! There's no way we could bring them out on tour with us…

After a few months spent raising the kids, earning real money, finding a reliable second guitar guy and writing new music, KRUGER are finally back with new material: a gorgeous very-limited-handnumbered-collector-coloured 10'' vinyl containing two brand new songs.

Two songs only, kidding me? Nope. Swiss quality, not quantity – and this should be enough to put the Lausanne-based noisemongers back in the post-metal panorama they contributed to shape. Shows are planned through Europe in the spring of 2013, including a number of support shows with GOJIRA in France and an appearance at PELAGIC FEST in Berlin on May 10th.

“Few bands are tits up awesome – KRUGER are. They take the majestic, layered and densed post-metal sound towards heavier, virulent and more melodic territories” (Rocksound – 8/10)

“There is something unsettling flowing beneath the surface of everything KRUGER do, and fans of progged out heaviness will find plenty to get caught up in. Kruger keep it intense, cerebral and bludgeoning.” (Kerrang - KKK)

“The epic force of Neurosis, Isis and Minsk meets the unbridled power of Breach, Burst and Converge. Kruger are fascinating and, beyond the wall of sound, give the feeling of listening to something unique.” (Rockhard – 8/10)

"EARTHSHIP surge ahead like a nuclear-powered icebreaker through the Barents Sea, laden with mighty riffs, tons of groove and home-brewn whiskey. JOIN The "EARTHSHIP′s bearded crew, led by captain Jan Oberg (former drummer of THE OCEAN) for a ride through the vast black sea of doom and prog n′ roll.

„Exit Eden has bags of groove and melody to complement the raw agression of Oberg's thunderous riffs and barbed vocal attack. On this evidence, it's pretty clear that Earthship are on course for greatness.(7/10)“ - ROCK SOUND (UK)

"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

„EARTHSHIP positionieren sich mit ihrem Debütalbum „Exit Eden“ als eine der wortgewaltigsten deutschen Antworten auf US-Futter der Mastodon/ Baroness/ Kylesa/ Torche-Liga und machen das mehr als ordentlich“ - ROCK HARD

“Zatokrev are finally getting the recognition they so deserve. After supporting Crowbar, Baroness, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Napalm Death, Orange Goblin, Type O Negative, Machine Head, A Storm Of Light, Amen Ra, Alcest and many others over the years, the Swiss quartett is now playing 2 exclusive shows with NEUROSIS this July.

The new album is somewhere between sludge, stoner, black metal, prog, doom, psychedelic rock and post hardcore, and showcases more dynamics in song writing and a larger variety of vocal styles.

The CD was released on Candelelight Records, who describe Zatokrev as "one of the most forward-thinking and crushing bands in extreme music", and we can only agree. PELAGIC now brings you the vinyl version, a 2xLP on clear wax in a gatefold sleeve, limited to 300 copies.

One of the amazing things about Swedish instrumentalists EF is that they are sweet and heavy at the same time; that they can win over an indie or post-rock crowd as much as a metal crowd. The 25 minutes of music on this 10“ record were recorded at the legendary Svenska Grammofonstudion in Göteborg by Oskar Lindberg (Soundtrack of our Lives, Jeniferever) and mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg of CULT OF LUNA fame.

4 brand new songs featuring numerous guest musicians and big orchestrations. We have no delusions of grandeur when we say that these tunes are going to be groundbreaking for the band.

limited to 500 copies

2013 marks the 10 year celebration of EF's existence, and what better way is there than to celebrate this with the release of their 4th studio album! In autumn of 2012 the band released a glimpse of their ever evolving sound on the 10“ vinyl EP “Delusions of grandeur“, and scored rave reviews in both the alternative press and metal media – and this is one of EF’s greatest strenghts: they appeal to both bearded indie rockers, horn throwing metal heads and intensely staring post-rockers at the same time. They can be heavy and fragile simultaneously, and they are not affraid to push their own boundaries “Ceremonies“ is once again an expedition through the landscape of sound that EF conjures up with great efficacy. Their love of melody and harmony, carried by heavy rythms, only to be dispersed into a sonic aurora borealis; with improved vocal and orchestral arrangements including more strings, horns, piano and even the use of synthesizers. And, once again given the carefully sculpted mix production by Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna).

The next part in the PELAGIC RECORDS silk-screen vinyl series!
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..

The artwork (by Danish artist Dorte Naomi) will be cut in linoleum, and then silk-screen printed on thick cardboard covers. Beautiful three-colour-split vinyl (red, white and black all on one piece of wax)

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!”

After a very active year 2012 in Australia, including shows with Russian Circles, Doomriders, Sleep and The Ocean, Lo! supported Cult of Luna and The Ocean during their 2013 European tour, including a performance at Roadburn and Impetus Festivals.

The monochrome artwork perfectly represents the spirit of Monstrorum Historia. The vinyl version comes with a 2-folded silk-screened print (unfolded it is close to 1 meter in length!) including silver colour and heavy 180 gram black vinyl. Pelagic Records is also offering a limited silk-screened Roadburn poster,  www.pelagic-records.com/poster.

Lo! 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. Atmospheric electronic interludes such as the elegiac „Seraphim“ or „Doth“ give the listener some space to breathe in between the assault of mighty groove-riffs and berserk drum attacks..

“a sludgy and abrasive (though delicious) stew, seasoned with all kinds of exotic timesignatures and a hint of Mastodon”

„a challenging post-core adventure somewhere along the lines of Cult Of Luna, Breach orBurst... awesome!“

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 LP comes with silk-screened cover artwork + sticker.

"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.
