foursome possesses a dynamic, lean, and dense sound. Recorded live onto analogue tape at Sonic One Studios in South Wales, the album’s mix was
completed in New York by Andrew Schneider (Shrinebuilder, Scissorfight, Big Business). Featuring new vocalist Matt Williams, the Roadburn alum’s are
excited to bring news songs to their growing fan base.

PET SLIMMERS OF THE YEAR is Scott Gowan, Steve McKenna and Dale Vinten and was formed through a mutual love of all things big and beautiful. Often cited as "post-metal", this prodigious three-piece transcend any one genre, instead focussing on melody and dynamics, combining multi-layered guitars, hypnotic bass-lines, crushing riffs and groove oriented drum patterns to create a live sound much greater than the sum of it's components.

“The Application of Loneliness, Ignorance, Misery, Love and Despair - An Introspective of the Human Condition”:
A concept album based on the contents of the aforementioned title; Taking a look at the human state; what we see and what we feel in certain situations and how we look at things totally uniquely.
With the deluxe vinyl being released through Back On Black, this is a record that harnesses the essence of October File: Anger and belief. Power and persistence.
October File have earned a formidable reputation as one of the UK’s heaviest and most intensely original bands over their eventful career.
This four-man post-punk-hard-core crew, formed in 2003 by guitarist Matt Lerwill and bassist Steve Beatty, have doggedly redefined what it means to convey ferocity and fury through the art of riffs, rhythms and incendiary, politically-charged lyrics; amassing a substantial fan base from across the rock, punk and metal spectrum and garnering countless effusive and ecstatic reviews from all corners of the rock and metal media.

Stained Class on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label
Pioneering 1978 Record Planted Flag for Speed Metal, Features Crisp and Clean Production Unlike Any Other Heavy Album of its Era
Band's Razor-Blade Logo and Studs-and-Metal Image Begin Here
Deemed "The Heaviest Heavy Metal Album of All Time": Last Priest Set to Feature Songwriting By All Five Members
Includes "Exciter," "Better By You, Better Than Me," "Beyond the Realms of Death"
Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI
Judas Priest’s namesake razor-blade logo is recognized the world over. So, too, is the band’s leather-and-studs look, the roughness and rebelliousness seamlessly meshing with the group’s no-nonsense music. Both trademarks arrived with 1978’s Stained Class, a benchmark not only for the British quintet but for the international hard-rock community. Boasting cleaner, crisper, and more refined production than its previous efforts, the record became an archetype of the style that ultimately became speed metal.
Mastered on Mobile Fidelity’s world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Series numbered limited edition LP opens up the sound and spectacle contained within Stained Class like never before. Immeasurably more dynamic than the 2001 CD remasters and more transparent, extended, and immediate than the original vinyl pressings, the reissue brings the metal gods to life. Rob Halford’s piercing falsetto reaches untold heights, and the crunch-and-burn of the dual-guitar interplay boasts realistic weight, balance, and tension. There’s nothing like the sound of metal on vinyl.
The last Judas Priest effort to feature songwriting by all five members, Stained Class briefly attained infamous status during the early 1990s after it became the subject of a legal case involving two misguided youths. Yet Priest’s unanimous victory in court further reaffirmed the LP’s purist, no-frills appeal and, moreover, drew attention to the symphonic precision and cleaver-sharp melodies within what Metal Hammer magazine declared “the heaviest heavy metal album of all time.”
At once visceral, complex, aggressive, sinister, and focused, Stained Class addresses topics such as death, victory, and the alien unknown with combustible relentlessness and instinctual passion. While the turbo-thrust gallop of “Exciter” and blaring momentum on “White Heat, Red Hot” rank as straight-ahead shots of adrenaline, the band displays a still-underappreciated lyrical intelligence on “Savages,” the title track, and “Heroes End,” all owing to long-view perspectives and Biblical imagery. And with “Better By You, Better Than Me” and “Beyond the Realms of Death,” Priest cut two songs whose influence on the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, and countless others remains today.
As metal journalist Martin Popoff wrote in his book The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time: “The album was first and foremost a spot of production crumpet proposing that this kind of music could exist and thrive within the realm of armchair audiophile fidelity. This was applied nowhere with more force than within the tom-tom sound of drummer Les Binks, who holds the philosophical line to the briefly sparked Simon Phillips’ version of the band, one record previous.”

The album features a number of guest artists and duets. "How Come You Treat Me So Bad" features a duet with Lee Dorsey, while "Broke Down Piece of Man" features a duet with Steven Van Zandt, 'It Ain't the Meat (It's the Motion)' features a duet with Kenny 'Popeye' Pentifallo, 'You Mean So Much To Me' features a duet with Ronnie Spector. I Don't Want To Go Home (1976) is Stax - influenced R&B arranged and produced by the co-founder of the band and Springsteen confederate Steven Van Zandt which featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. The Van Zandt-written "I Don't Want To Go Home" became Southside's signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.

Lonely And Blue is Roy Orbison's first album, released in 1961. The album was not only a breakthrough for Orbison as his debut LP, but also for Rock & Roll. Up to that point, apart from Elvis Presley - who was in a class by himself - few white rock & rollers had even tried to make as bold a use of the LP as what we hear on this record.
Lonely And Blue is a huge canvas for a sound that combined Rock & Roll's beat, Nashville's sound, and the singer's unique multi-octave range and intensity. The single "Only The Lonely" is perhaps the most accessible and commercial side of this new sound, but the whole album is packed with great moments.
The material was uniformly strong and consistent, probably due, in part, to the fact that producer Fred Foster was able to draw from nearly a year's worth of recording activity to assemble the contents of the album. Foster also took advantage of the album's stereo release to devise a crisp, discreet, two-channel mix that brought out all of the details of this sound in notably sharp relief, creating one of the earliest stereo rock & roll albums that was actually superior to its mono equivalent. Indeed, Sings Lonely and Blue was among the first rock & roll LPs to attract the interest of serious audiophile enthusiasts.

Produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn & John and recorded in Stockholm, Wounded Rhymes is the follow up to Lykke Li's critically-acclaimed debut, Youth Novels. Channeling the demise of The Shangri-La's "Leader of the Pack," women under the influence, ladies and gentlemen of the canyon, a Kung-fu Marianne Faithful, and an armed Nancy Sinatra on peyote, Lykke Li has created a ten song album that sounds like no other. The record is packed full of pounding, voodoo drums, girl group gang vocals, sparkling guitar lines, woozy keyboards, love unrequited, hope reignited and her own very powerful voice, sounding bigger and bolder than ever before.

Now approaching its 25th anniversary, Brian Eno and David Byrnes My Life in the Bush of Ghosts appears downright visionary. With its found vocals, cut-and paste arrangements, funked-up rhythms and embrace of influences from all around the globe, the duos controversial work anticipated the creative cross-pollination and technological innovation of contemporary electronic dance music, world music, hip hop and alternative rock. You can hear echoes of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in the anthems Moby built around vintage vocal samples, in the outrageously exotic beats of Missy Elliot and Timbaland, in the Middle Eastern-accented chill-out tracks of Thievery Corporation or Bjorks otherworldly soundscapes.
Back in the day, however, critics were divided and audiences were, well, confused. Eno and Byrne themselves didnt know quite what they were looking for at first. They shard an enthusiasm for African music, especially the hypnotic grooves of Nigerian Feka Kuti, and a desire to free themselves from the constraints of conventional songwriting. They embarked on a nomadic journey through studios in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The players who accompanied them on these sessions included drummers Chris Frantz (Talking Heads) and Prairie Prince (The Tubes), bassist Bill Laswell (Material) and Tim Wright (DNA), avant-garde percussionist Dave Van Teighem and conga player Steve Scales, part of the Remain In Light live band. The result of their labors was an album that married West African and American R&B rhythms with the impassioned voices of talk-show hosts and evangelists taped off the radio or the evocative sound of prayerful singers culled from Middle Eastern field recordings. Byrne recalls their entire adventure in fascinating liner notes that detail the recording process and address the resulting critical furor. My Life in the Bush of Ghosts was cut between Talking Heads Fear of Music (1979) and Remain In Light (1980), but sample clearance issues, an almost unheard-of-problem in the analog era, kept it on hold until 1981.

The group recorded their eponymous third album Raging Slab, produced by Daniel Rey (Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Masters of Reality). To help support this album the group also produced a video, and the clip for their song "Don't Dog Me" featured the band being dragged around the Mojave Desert by a monster truck. The video climbed to No. 2 on the MTV countdown.

The now legendary Beck Song Reader--twenty Beck compositions previously released exclusively as stunningly illustrated sheet music in partnership with
McSweeney’s—will receive a long awaited traditional release, when Warby Parker/Capitol Records issues the Beck Song Reader compilation
album, produced by Beck and Randall Poster, known for his music supervision work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and
many others. Warby Parker will commemorate the release of Song Reader by reissuing limited-edition Carmichael frames created in collaboration with
Beck, this time in Black Cherry—as well as a new edition of the Song Reader book, featuring two new prints from artist Marcel Dzama. The 20-track all-star collection features exclusively recorded versions of Song Reader charts by the likes of Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, David Johansen, Jason Isbell, Fun.,
Eleanor Friedberger, and several more including Beck himself.
The Warby Parker release of Beck Song Reader marks the first officially recorded incarnation of the project, which has already inspired interpretations
from hundreds of musicians the world over. The record includes the studio-quality debut of songs previously only played live either by Beck himself or at
one of the handful of Song Reader concerts staged over the last two years. The most recent of these was presented by the L.A. Philharmonic in
partnership with McSweeney’s and Warby Parker at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles on November 24, 2013. Described by The Los Angeles
Times as an “expertly delivered and received night… another big step in Beck's long, fascinating evolution,” the show’s highlights included Jarvis Cocker’s
interpretively danced “Why Did You Make Me Care?" and Jack Black’s borderline frightening “We All Wear Cloaks,” the latter of which makes its recorded
debut on the Beck Song Reader album.

After pursuing separate musical paths for almost a decade, Leslie West and Corky Laing reunited Mountain, with Mark Clarke on bass and recorded Go For Your Life in 1985. Leslie West has never received his proper place in the pantheon of great rock guitarists. Apart from incredible technique and imagination, he achieved what so few guitarists ever manage - his own voice with Mountain. The album was dedicated to Felix Pappalardi's memory.

Climbing!, also known as Mountain Climbing!, is the official debut studio album by American blues-rock band Mountain. Released on March 7, 1970, the album featured the 'classic' Mountain lineup of Leslie West (guitar, vocals), Felix Pappalardi (bass, piano) and Corky Laing (drums, percussion), and followed the West solo album Mountain featuring Pappalardi and drummer Norman Smart, released in 1969 and often credited to the band. Produced by Pappalardi, the album reached number 17 on the American Billboard 200 albums chart and featured the band's best-known song "Mississippi Queen".

T.W.O. is their second LP and continued the musical direction set on the first album REO Speedwagon. The album launched REO on its first national tour and presented a more polished production than the band's debut album; however it still retained the progressive rock leanings that they were to ditch following the arrival of Mike Murphy. The album introduced Kevin Cronin as vocalist and contributing song writer to the band, replacing Terry Luttrell. Highlights of the album include Richrath's "Golden Country," a compelling political statement with possibly his finest guitar solo as well as "Like You Do." Both songs, as well as Cronin's "Music Man," are frequently part of the band's current setlist.
1. Let Me Ride
2. How The Story Goes
3. Little Queenie

The self titled debut album in 1971, was the only album recorded with singer Terry Luttrell until Kevin Cronin joined the band for R.E.O./T.W.O. This album had more of a progressive rock sound than later stadium rock/adult contemporary works that made them famous. The album produced the fan favorites "157 Riverside Avenue," "Sophisticated Lady," and "Lay Me Down."

Molly Hatchet comes out of the chute kicking and screaming on this, the band's debut effort. With obvious influences including fellow Floridians Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as the Allman Brothers,Mountain, and any number of other hard rock bands, Hatchet didn't take long to catch on with what would become legions of fans. Songs like "Bounty Hunter" and the cover of the Allman Brothers Band's "Dreams I'll Never See" helped to build a solid base of fans who still hold tight to their Molly Hatchet rock & roll dreams.

Led Zeppelin had a fully formed, distinctive sound from the outset, as their eponymous debut illustrates. Taking the heavy, distorted electric blues of Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, and Cream to an extreme, Zeppelin created a majestic, powerful brand of guitar rock constructed around simple, memorable riffs and lumbering rhythms. But the key to the group's attack was subtlety: it wasn't just an onslaught of guitar noise, it was shaded and textured, filled with alternating dynamics and tempos. As Led Zeppelin proves, the group was capable of such multi-layered music from the start. Although the extended psychedelic blues of "Dazed and Confused," "You Shook Me," and "I Can't Quit You Baby" often gather the most attention, the remainder of the album is a better indication of what would come later. "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" shifts from folky verses to pummeling choruses; "Good Times Bad Times" and "How Many More Times" have groovy, bluesy shuffles; "Your Time Is Gonna Come" is an anthemic hard rocker; "Black Mountain Side" is pure English folk; and "Communication Breakdown" is a frenzied rocker with a nearly punkish attack. Although the album isn't as varied as some of their later efforts, it nevertheless marked a significant turning point in the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal.

THUNDERSTEEL takes everything that was metal at the time, thrashing guitars and pounding percussion indicative of the underground thrash movement. It has more riffs than Anthrax and undertones of the Hair Metal that was riding the 80s charts. It is a classic and has everything that makes metal great! THE PRIVILEGE OF POWER saw the band augment their state-of-the-art heavy metal sound with horns, courtesy of The Brecker Brothers and Tower Of Power.
