    Elysium (Awaiting Repress)


    DMM Direct Cut From 24/96 Hi-Res Master


    180 Gram Audiophile Pressing


    45 R.P.M.


    He came from the 'Land Of The Midnight Sun', sparkled on the jazz-rock stage as an 'Elegant Gypsy', came up trumps in the 'Casino' with all the right chords and melodies, and his 'Splendido Hotel' was the number one address for fusion fans around the globe. He finally achieved immortality together with John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia on 'Friday Night In San Francisco'. From his early days as a rising star i right up to the present day, he has continually managed to refine his qualities: breathtakingly fast picking, skillful percussion effects the like of which had never been heard before, the effortlessness with which he can instantly switch from muscular axe-man rock to spinning gentle, romantic webs of melody. In the nineties, inspired by his love of the acoustic sounds of Latin America and the works of nuevo tango pioneer Astor Piazzolla, he made some delightful chamber music recordings.


    On more recent albums all these penchants, influences and musical movements have fused into an unmistakable sound. 'Elysium' is the climax of this process so far. The artist has arrived where he always wanted to be. He himself thinks of Elysium as a 'place of perfect happiness'. A paradise where acoustic and electric components, triumphant rock and finely entwined jazz, delicate and pumping rhythms, guitars and keyboards, wide panoramas of rock and diaphanous carpets of sound come together in harmony. The gates to paradise for guitar aficionados are open to everyone - with 'Elysium.'

    Humanure

    Cattle Decapitation can be described as the bastard child of Cannibal Corpse and Carcass weaving a vicious blend of Gore-grind and Death Metal into complex structures with the end result being some of the most brutal and catchy songs written in the genre today. Cattle Decapitation takes a different approach to their song writing than most bands of the same sort that tend to focus mainly on fictional subject matter. The new album Humanure starts off where their debut album on Metal Blade To Serve Man left off, dealing with the rape of the earth, it's natural resources, and the unjust treatment of animals. Humanure will be the album that metalheads have been longing for; something as ferocious as Cannibal Corpse, something as gutturally disgusting as Carcass, something offensively disturbing as Autopsy, and something as politically charged as Napalm Death.


    Hailing from San Diego, CA Cattle Decapitation originally formed in 1996. The lineup initially featured David Astor on bass and Gabe Serbian on drums, both of whom were then also members of the underground phenomena The Locust. Seeking a replacement for their original vocalist, the band turned to Travis Ryan, who had actually been playing drums for another San Diego metal band, Strangulation, in addition to serving as vocalist in a gore metal band called Anal Flatulence. With Ryan on board, Astor moved from bass to drums, and Serbian moved from drums to guitar. The 3-piece quickly released two albums, the Human Jerky LP (on the Nevada label Satan's Pimp) and the Homovore CD/LP. Next, they added a bassist, Troy Oftedal, with whom they recorded their third full-length, To Serve Man, released in the fall of 2002 on Metal Blade, a move that would expose them to more of a death metal-oriented audience (as opposed to the hardcore/grindcore one that they had mostly been playing to before). In 2002, the band added a second guitarist, Josh Elmore (formerly of 7000 Dying Rats), who eventually took over as the band's sole guitarist after Serbian left in order to devote himself more fully into the Locust.


    Recorded with producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, WASP, Six Feet Under) Humanure will feature the latest addition to the band, drummer Michael Laughlin. The band parted ways with drummer David Astor in May of 2003 due to inability to live up to the obligations of touring and regular necessities of the band. Michael, previously of CREATION IS CRUCIFIXION, is most definitely a fitting replacement. Humanure has guest appearances by ex-members of the band including Gabe Serbian and the rest of his band The Locust and the original vocalist, Scott Miller.

    Piazzolla: Salvatore Accardo (Out Of Stock)

    Two genuine art pieces for orchestra and solo violin are on the program on this record: Astor Piazzolla's composition Tanti Anni Prima in a version for string orchestra and solo violin, and composer Leonard Bernstein's five-movement Serenade for Violin, String Orchestra, Harp and Percussion. Piazzolla's Tanti Anni Prima shows the grand master of tango nuevo of his tender, lyrical side, the turn of Italian violin virtuoso Salvatore Accardo and his Orchestra Da Camera Italiana will serve excellently. Bernstein's Serenade, however, is a virtuoso tour de force that demands not only a soloist but also a few strings and percussion machine operators. But Accardo proved himself as a soloist and as an orchestra conductor in top form. The transparent and detailed room-filling sound of this recording, making Bernstein's colorful arrangement here in addition, a special experience. The recording was purely analog Giulio Cesare Ricci absorbed through Neumann microphones at a Ampex two-track analog machine. Even the one-stage cut is implemented as pure analog. The LP was pressed in Germany on high quality 180-gram virgin vinyl. Strictly limited to 496 pieces!
