After Christmas, in the first week of the new year, we have to do inventory for tax purposes. Never the most fun part of the year but it always helps if we don’t have to count too many items! So to help limit the work we have put up all cd’s as Christmas sale for 3 euro and some vinyl packages for nice prices. Next to that we do not press any cd’s any more in the future so this would make more room for vinyl as well in the years to come.
Which cd’s are 3 euro you ask? Here’s the list:
UPDATE: sold out for now!
We just got the go from the mighty BONGRIPPER that we can put up the pre-order for the Hippie Killer and Miserable (re)presses. They are shipped to us this week and we hope to get them in 2 weeks.
Hippie Killer 2LP: on Carmel & Luna green. Limited to 500 worldwide.
Miserable 2LP: on Pink & Translucent Violet. Limited to 500 worldwide.
If needed (and you know you do like we do! ;-)):
Just in time for the Christmas shopping spree we have gotten some nice vinyl for under the tree. And which records are those you ask, well look below and you will find the answer.
If you want to hear the Sunn – Kannon album streaming in advance please go over to Rolling Stone to stream it in full: “Sunn O))), the Mark Rothkos of void-painting expressionist metal, are returning next month with their first studio album in six years — ending the longest wait between blasts in the band’s 15 year history. Kannon, released on co-leader Greg Anderson’s Southern Lord Records, strips the band down from the baroque orchestral arrangements of 2009’s Monoliths and Dimensions, instead opting for a three-song cycle that Anderson calls “a fairly accurate reflection of … the power of the group live.”

Head over to the Invisible Oranges-site for an exclusive stream of Terzij de Horde’s Self. Out October 19th 2015 worldwide on vinyl, cd, tape and digital.
Here’s what they had to say about the album: “To say Terzij de Horde’s full-length debut has been a long time coming would be a vast understatement. Existing in various forms since 2007, this Dutch five-piece’s various EPs, splits, and a special tribute to poet Hendrik Marsman offered brief, tempting glimpses into their masterful fusion of dark neocrust and expansive black metal discord, but just enough to really whet one’s palette.
Enter Self, the culmination of Terzij de Horde’s eight years of tumultuous existence. An ode to the shedding of one’s monastic self and embracing mind-body dualism, Self mirrors its thematic elements with a striking sonic duality. A stunning alternation between shimmering, near-post-rock heights and jagged, jarring discordance, Terzij de Horde’s unbridled passion remains steadfast as our protagonist sheds his singular self for the fungus it really is.”
The creature, the traveller, is torn apart
Opened, turned outward toward death
Its thinking deranged and outraged
Its seamless garment rent
-”Sacrifice – A Final Paroxysm”, Joost Vervoort/Terzij de Horde

Uzala live at Roadburn 2015 is now available on ‘Pay what you want’-basis on Bandcamp. For now only digital is available. The order for vinyl has been put in at the plant but we expect a release date not earlier then February 2016. We’ll keep you posted on that.
We could try to describe how the gig was but JJ over at The Obelisk does that better than we ever could:
“I had planned on catching a bit of Uzala in the Green Room and movesing on to the next set, but once they went on, the Boise, Idaho, three-piece held me in place. I didn’t know it at the time, but they were just what I was looking for. Guitarist Chad Remains, guitarist Darcy Nutt (also running her guitar through a bass rig, for extra low-end) and drummer Chuck Watkins had a new song in tow called “The Gallows,” and that moved a little faster than some of their more plodding material from 2014’s righteous Tales of Blood and Fire, songs like “Dark Days” and “Seven Veils,” but wherever they headed, they were just the right blend of beat-you-over-the-head heaviness in Remains and Nutt‘s tones, melody and lurching groove that I couldn’t have left even if I’d wanted to. They were not to be missed, in other words. Vocals were a little low, at least up front where I was standing, but Nutt has a powerful voice and as dense as those tones got — seriously, there were parts where they sounded like a machine grinding to a halt; I wondered how they’d restart it for the next measure — she cut through with little trouble and palpable soul.
Their set was a highlight of the day for me, all the more because I’d seen them before, knew what I Uzala was getting into and they still managed to surprise with how switched on they were. Remains shredded his solos in top form and had some technical trouble along the way that was fixed so promptly by the Green Room crew that I’m not even sure he noticed. Only complaint? No “Tenement of the Lost.” The closer from Tales of Blood and Fire that begins with a wash of feedback and culminates in one of the sweetest minimalist doom ballads my ears have heard in the last five years — it’s my go-to sad song — would’ve certainly been welcome, but honestly, I think the maximum-volume approach they took was probably a more practical call given the room. I could’ve gone to see Russian Circles on the Main Stage, or Thou at Het Patronaat, or Moaning Cities, in Stage01, but Uzala kept me where I was. They were a thrill to watch.”
Officially Terzij de Horde’s Self is out on october 19th 2015 but pre-sales are up now for the cd and vinyl (blue).
Noisey premiered the first track of the album, Absense and wrote about the band: “Utrecht’s Terzij de Horde are part of the Netherlands’ reliably excellent black metal scene (also home to Urfaust, Nihill, Dodecahedron, and, in a way, the dearly departed The Devil’s Blood) and have distinguished themselves by dint of a captivating, layered sound that blasts a black metal core with fragments of noise and heavy doses of melancholia. It is poetic, cerebral music that channels aggression and catharsis into something fruitful.” (Kim Kelly).
Today Cvlt Nation premiered the 2nd track and wrote: “Every song you will hear is thick with emotion and pounds your inner being with their urgent riffs. CVLT Nation has been given the honor of sharing with you Terzij de Horde’s beast of track “Sacrifice – A Final Paroxysm” below. The title of this record is perfect because there is something very introspective about this band’s music that will have you looking inside of your Self. Hit up the labels for the pre-orders that are in effect now!”
Here is the link to the pre-order for vinyl and cd. For the tape please go to Tartarus Records.
A statement from the band:
The album focuses on the problem of self. Six tracks explore different ways to live, or fail to live, with self and world. They embody the struggles these paths and strategies create: blindness, suffering, a desire for release, the destruction of self and others as well as the turning towards -or away from- life.
‘Self’ is a collaborative effort, as Burning World Records (gatefold lp), Consouling Sounds (cd) and Tartarus Records (cassette) will each be releasing it on their preferred formats in October. Continue reading Burning World to release Terzij de Horde – Self on vinyl this fall
