FollowersKnown for their heart-stirring lyrics and chart-topping hit songs, Tenth Avenue North delivers once again with their brand new album, Followers. Lead singer, Mike Donehey, explains the album title saying, "When I search the gospels, I cannot find one place where Jesus asks anyone to be a leader. In fact, He doesn't even consider Himself a leader. He says, 'I don't do anything of my own accord. I just do what I see my Father in Heaven doing.' So if that's the case, there's one leader, and we're all followers." Songs from Followers include themes about finding hope in moments of confusion and chaos, overcoming fear, giving God control and pursuing what He wants. It's a timely record with a message destined to impact listeners in a profound way.1. Afraid

The Childhood Of A Leader OSTScott Walker's soundtrack to Brady Corbet's dramatic film, The Childhood Of A Leader, is his first OST work since his remarkable score for Pola X in 1999. His dramatic contribution is at the heart of the film, a tense semi-fictional film, inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre's short story of the same name, that follows the complicated formative years of young boy growing in France in 1918 who witnesses the signing of the Treatment of Versailles. Walker continues to work with long-term collaborators Pete Walsh (coproducer) and Mark Warman (orchestra, conductor), and were both involved in the live score performance by an orchestra of 80 that closed Rotterdam Film Festival last month.1.

KoRn: one of the best-selling Nu Metal bands on the planet. Of their 8 studio albums the first seven have been certified platinum. 'Issues' was their first album after their mainstream breakthrough with 'Follow The Leader'.
On 'Issues' the hip hop elements of 'Follow the Leader' were removed moving the band in a more alternative and industrial metal sound rather than the so-called nu metal.
Although 'Issues' was released during a week of many highly-anticipated records, it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 keeping Dr. Dre and Celine Dion from hitting #1. The first single from the album, Falling Away from Me, debuted on South Park in an episode titled Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery. The band was featured in cartoon form as Scooby Doo-style mystery solvers. After the 180 grams release of Life Is Peachy we now present Issues on heavy-weight vinyl!1. Dead

The Flesh PrevailsAfter years on the road building a fan base from the ground up, Fallujah has
displayed a rugged work ethic and commitment to crafting forward thinking music.
Fallujah has just wrapped up their highly anticipated follow up to 2011's The
Harvest Wombs with what is surely one of the freshest and most emotive metal albums
to be released in years, entitled The Flesh Prevails. The album was mixed, mastered,
and engineered by Zach Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite
Studios in Oakland CA over the course of a few months and features guest appearances
from Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Necrophagist) and the voice of Roniit Alkayam. The
artwork was a collaborative effort between Poland's Tomasz Alen Kopera and the bands
own vocalist Alex Hofmann. The Flesh Prevails is easily one the years' most highly anticipated releases.1. Starlit Path

Take A Look In The Mirror
180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
First Pressing Of 2000 Numbered Copies On Silver Transparent Vinyl
Take A Look In The Mirror is the sixth studio album by American Nu-Metal band Korn, released in 2003. It is the first album self-produced by the band. Korn explained that they wanted fans to hear the music as it should be. They returned to a more aggressive sound as featured on their earlier albums, with guitarists Brian Head Welch and James Munky Shaffer mostly utilizing thick, heavy distortion and the occasional clean tones for contrast. The album peaked at number 9 of the Billboard 200 album charts and was certified platinum.
The track Did My Time was previously released as a single for the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The single debuted and peaked at number thirty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Korn's first top-forty hit in the United States. Did My Time gave Korn another Grammy nomination in the Best Metal Performance category. The track Right Now was accompanied by a provocative cartoon video animated by Spike and Mike.
The album also contains a reworked and re-recorded version of the track Alive, which had previously only been released on the band's first demo, Neidermeyer's Mind. The track Play Me features rapper Nas, making Take A Look In The Mirror the first Korn album since Follow The Leader to feature such a collaboration. Jonathan Davis plays bagpipes on Let's Do This Now, marking the return of a tradition that has previous to the album, only been absent on Untouchables.

Boston Vol. 3Third Installment In The Trilogy Of Re-Mastered Live Recordings Taken From The Original Tapes Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
In 2013 Fleetwood Mac embarked on a massive world tour. The dates saw the band playing sold-out
shows to huge arena crowds and created another surge of interest in this much-loved band.
July 22, 2014 sees Madfish release Fleetwood Mac's Boston Volume 3, a double LP set of live recordings from an earlier era of the band's colourful history. The set features the classic blues line-up of
Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.
Originally recorded at the Boston Tea Party venue over three nights in February 1970, for a planned
release later the same year, these recordings were left in the can, unissued, following leader Peter
Green's sudden decision to leave the band a few weeks after the dates. Tracks from the shows were
eventually released in various forms in the mid-80s but these releases were blighted by poor sound
sources. The discovery of the original 8-track tapes and a number of previously unreleased tracks
in the late 90s allowed the material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for
This new release brings together all of these re-mastered recordings as a heavyweight gatefold 2LP
set to present the final instalment of these historic shows.LP1

Complete CommunionNot counting a couple of sessions he co-led with John Coltrane and Albert Ayler, Complete Communion was the first album Don Cherry recorded as a leader following his departure from the Ornette Coleman Quartet. It was also one of the earliest showcases for the Argentinian tenor saxophonist Gato Barbieri, who Cherry discovered during a stay in Rome. While the music on Complete Communion was still indebted to Coleman's concepts, Cherry injected enough of his own personality to begin differentiating himself as a leader. He arranged the original LP as two continuous side-long suites, each of which incorporated four different compositions and was recorded in a single take. In practice, this meant that several melodic themes popped up over the course of each side; all the musicians free-associated off of each theme, engaging in intense, abstract dialogues before moving on to the next. As the album's title suggests, every member of the group not only solos, but shares the total space selflessly. Bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Ed Blackwell both play extremely active roles, especially Grimes, who solos powerfully and sometimes carries the main riffs. Often the music sounds more like a conversation, as opposed to a solo with support, because the musicians make such intelligent use of space and dynamics, and wind up with a great deal of crackling, volatile interplay as a result. The leader remains recognizably himself, and his burnished tone is a nice contrast with Barbieri's fiery approach; for his part, Barbieri's playing has a lot of speechlike inflections, and he spends a lot of time in the upper register of his horn, which makes him sound quite similar to Ornette at times. As a whole, the project comes off remarkably well, establishing Cherry as an avant-garde force to be reckoned with in his own right.

UNIM-ECM-7070xJakob Bro, Thomas Morgan, Jon Christensen
Jakob Bro: guitars
Thomas Morgan: double bass
Jon Christensen: drums
Gefion is Danish guitarist Jakob Bro's first ECM album as leader, following recordings for the label as sideman with Paul Motian and Tomasz Stanko. Like the work of those masters Bro's balladeering distils a sense of jazz history in its specific and highly personal atmospheres. The open forms of Bro's compositions leave plenty of space for his companions - drum legend Jon Christensen and creative bassist-of-the-moment Thomas Morgan - to make their statements, interactively and in parallel. And there is space too for the listener's imagination to follow the flow and the delicate melodic tracery of Bro's electric guitar in this thoughtful and poetic album. Gefion was recorded in Oslo's Rainbow Studio in November 2013 and produced by Manfred Eicher.1. Gefion

UNIM-ECM-0245xJakob Bro, Thomas Morgan, Joey Baron
StreamsOn his second leader album for ECM - following on from the prizewinning Gefion - Danish guitarist Jakob Bro continues to refine his trio project, with its emphases on melody, sound, space, layered textures and interaction. The rapport between Bro and Thomas Morgan (Bro calls him "my musical soul mate") has become something extraordinary, and often guitarist and bassist develop improvisational ideas in parallel. There's a historical aptness, too, in the choice of Joey Baron as the band's new drummer, for Bro first encountered Morgan when the bassist was playing in Baron's band a decade ago On Streams Joey Baron dives into the music's detail with obvious pleasure.
This recording features five new Bro pieces: "Opal", "Full Moon Europa", "Shell Pink", "Sisimiut" and "Heroines" (heard in both a trio version and a particularly lovely solo version). Completing the album's repertoire is the freely improvised "PM Dream", dedicated to the late Paul Motian. Jakob's approach to melody acknowledges the influence of Motian, and both Bro and Morgan played in the late drummer's ensembles.

The Future In Whose Eyes?British Metal Forefathers SikTh Return With Their First Full-Length Album In 11 Years
SikTh pushed me in to the progressive genre. Death of a Dead Day is my jam - Spencer Sotelo (Periphery)
A keystone in the progressive metal genre, SikTh's legacy gave the inspiration for bands like Protest The Hero, Periphery, TesseracT and Animals As Leaders following their hiatus in 2007. Now in 2017 the intense and enigmatic frontman Mikee Goodman is joined by Alias' vocalist Joe Rosser for a unique double-vocal attack. The band also welcomed guest singer Spencer Sotelo from Periphery as SikTh's first ever guest performer on an album, cementing the relationship formed between the bands on their US tour in 2016.
Following their reformation at the UK's legendary Download Festival in 2014, SikTh have been teasing the metal scene with the release of mini-album Opacities in 2015, a support tour in the UK for Slipknot, their first ever US tour as the main support for Periphery, and a 6-week tour at the beginning of 2017 as the main support for Trivium in Europe and the UK. The band also released a deluxe edition of their most popular album Death of a Dead Day on its 10th anniversary through Peaceville in 2016.
Kicking off The Future In Whose Eyes? album campaign in February, the single No Wishbones became an instant favourite with streaming platforms; Spotify placed the track on their popular curated playlists New Metal Tracks, Top Tracks in Metal and Got Djent?; iTunes selected the single for their Hot Tracks in Metal promotions in both the UK and the US; and Deezer chose the track for their Metal New Releases playlist.
Mikee commented on the new album: Personally I feel this is our best album yet. The band has made incredible music, brutal, technically warped and also some psychedelic moments... we've done something special here. The SikTh frontman explained the artwork, created by Meats Meier, whose credits include the film Hellboy and TOOL: Meats Meier is an absolute genius, a visionary and a pioneer. We wanted something really special and we got it; the inspiration was the title itself, the constant evolution of humanity and the self-destructive nature of man."1. Vivid

UNIM-ECM-4738xChris Potter / David Virelles / Joe Martin / Marcus Gilmore
The Dreamer Is The DreamFor his third ECM album as a leader, Chris Potter presents a new acoustic quartet that naturally blends melodic rhapsody with rhythmic muscle. The group includes superlative musicians well known to followers of ECM's many recordings from New York over the past decade: keyboardist David Virelles, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Marcus Gilmore, who each shine in addition to the leader on multiple horns. The Dreamer Is the Dream features Potter on tenor saxophone - the instrument that has made him one of the most admired players of his generation - in the striking opener Heart in Hand and such album highlights as Yasodhara, as well as on soprano sax (Memory and Desire) and bass clarinet (the title track).
Potter is an artist who employs his considerable technique in service of music rather than spectacle, says The New Yorker, and his composing develops in texture and atmosphere with every album. Along with his previous ECM releases, Imaginary Cities and The Sirens, he has appeared on some of the label's most acclaimed discs, including Paul Motian's classic Lost in a Dream and Dave Holland's Grammy Award-winning What Goes Around.

After the release of Trip Shakepeare's debut-Applehead Man-band leader Matt Wilson's brother, Grammy® winning songwriter Dan Wilson joined the fold as a permanent member. The original trio became a quartet and self-released Are You Shakespearienced? in 1988.
Omnivore is pleased to continue following the legacy of Trip Shakespeare with a reissue of the band's 2nd album. Are You Shakespearienced?

The LP (first pressing on translucent sea-foam green vinyl, with black to follow) contains the original nine tracks, liners and photos.

UNIM-ECM-5974xNik Bartsch's Ronin
Llyria'Llyria' is the third album from Nik BÄrtsch's Ronin and follows on from 'Stoa' and 'Holon', the ECM recordings that established the exciting young Swiss band on the international scene. Leader and pianist Nik BÄrtsch's modular pieces still define the context of the group's music but the committed input of the individual Ronin members has lifted the work to the next level, blurring the distinctions between composition, improvisation and interpretation.
The music has become more open, moving on from its early Zen funk and ritual groove music formulas. Reed player Sha shines brightly here, and lyrical melodic themes make themselves felt. But this is, Nik BÄrtsch suggests, more than its predecessors a drummer's record. Its beats are lovingly crafted by Kaspar Rast and percussionist Andi Pupato.LP1

Pisces IscariotPart of an extensive campaign honoring the legacy of the iconic alternative band, the Smashing Pumpkins' 1994 album Pisces Iscariot returns in a vinyl configuration remastered from the original master tapes specifically for the format.
The Smashing Pumpkins have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history, selling more than 30 million albums. The pivotal group's many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation.
The Smashing Pumpkins are a big rock band, molded by leader Billy Corgan after stadium and progressive rock giants from the 1970s. As such it's only fitting that after only two albums they would release a collection of B-sides. The result, Pisces Iscariot, is not only a good compendium to their other work, but it's a very good record in its own right. Most of the 14 tracks follow the Pumpkins' blueprint, traveling sonically from soft to loud and back again.

Party-Starting Band Steps Up the Kitsch, Hooks, and Fun on Dance-Friendly Multi-Platinum Set
Addictive Rhythms, Deep Grooves, Quirky Vibes: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI
Mention the phrase Love Shack and anyone youre talking to will immediately know to what youre referencing. Few songs stick in the brain with such lasting power, fond memories, and sing-a-long potential as the B-52s blissful 1989 smash, one of the many moments that make the bands Cosmic Thing such a timeless affair. The groups melodies were never sharper, its vibes never as carefree, and attitude as joyous as on this multi-platinum affair that stayed on the charts for more than a year.
Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys world-renowned mastering system at pressed at RTI, this Sliver Label LP dazzles with glorious textures, deeper low-end frequencies, more pronounced midrange information, and enhanced vocal dynamics absent from prior editions. Especially noticeable is the additional color and sense of rhythmic involvement in the already-persuasive pop-rock tunes, guaranteed to lighten any mood and ignite any celebration.
Urging listeners to roam around the world on one of the two Top 5 singles here, the B-52s follow their own instructions, constructing lively fare assembled from quirky riffs, bizarre albeit smooth harmonies, strident lead vocals, jagged tempos, and infectious choruses. At heart, Cosmic Thing is a dance-your-ass-off soiree. Leader Fred Schneider delights in kitsch, his deliveries combining goofy pronouncements and half-rapped words that speak the co-ed ensembles long tradition of originality, flair, campiness, and irreverence.
Better still is the bands embrace of a shinier, funkier sound established by producers Don Was and Nile Rodgers. The production, exponentially improved on this reissue, complements the upbeat energy, well-crafted songwriting, and emotional exuberance demonstrated on everything ranging from the kick-starting Bushfire to rambunctious Junebug to wild, weird, and wonderful Love Shack. Just try not to smile after spinning this LP. Its impossible.

The Something RainTindersticks has been charting a glorious trajectory since returning to action in 2008 following a 5-year hiatus. With band leader Stuart A. Staples and co-founders David Boutler and Neil Fraser forming a core trio of original members, Tindersticks definitively returned to form with two critically-acclaimed albums in 2008 and 2010. The band's new record, The Something Rain, makes this a trifecta.
The Something Rain brims and bristles with canny narrative thrust. Slinky, supple compositions are spiked with plenty of barbed edges and sparkling fizz. Right out of the gate, album opener Chocolate features David Boulter's sequel to the spoken-word classic My Sister from Tindersticks' eponymous 1995 release. Boulter narrates the story while the band works up a brilliant, brewing crescendo, abetted by the swirling horns of long-time collaborator Terry Edwards.
The Something Rain is indeed a new Tindersticks classic, edgier, more exuberant and more expansive, a fine 9-song set of rolling, at times rollicking, and always inimitably Tinderstickian takes on smoky Northern Soul. First Tindersticks album to be entirely produced by the band, with Stuart A. Staples assuming full recording and mixing duties at his own Le Chien Chanceux studio. Features renowned horn player Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Gallon Drunk) and vocalist Gina Foster on several tracks. 180g LP includes art print poster and download code.1. Chocolate

Sorrow, Tears And BloodUprising of 1976 in which thousands of South African students protested the forced teaching of Afrikaans, the colonial language of Apartheid. During the uprising and the ensuing riots, hundreds of students were killed. The song calls out killings that have gone on in the name of authority and totalitarian rule as well as the instruments of repression of colonial Africa - the police and the army. In this way the song indirectly references the brutality that Fela and his family have experienced in the series of raids on his family compound, the Kalakuta Republic. The musical composition parallels the somber tone of the lyrics; focused and direct, the track avoids the bombastic funk of many of Fela's compositions.
"Colonial Mentality" follows in the same manner, pointing out that those who wish to live in a post-colonial mentality are in essence living as slaves. Musically, the Africa 70 returns to a more funk and jazzy grooves while relaying a pertinent message to those who looked to Fela as a leader of the resistance.1. Opposite People
