High On Fire'
De Vermis MysteriisWith a heavy-handed approach and a sound that crashes like thunder, HIGH ON FIRE has put the power back in power-trio. Less a band than a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume and sheer heaviness, the band has burned the metal rulebook and forged a new archetype.Bloody Knuckle

The Art Of Self Defense180g double vinyl version from Southern Lord in Stoughton gatefold jacket with 20 page bound in 12" x 12" book and printed inner-sleeves.
Cult metal favorite High On Fire was founded by former Sleep guitarist Matt Pike in the summer of 1998. Berthed out of the need to simply play guitar again, Pike jammed with and settled on a line-up of powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and longtime guitarist compatriot George Rice, who made the switch to bass to round out the trio. They had scarcely been together for a few months before demoing three songs. That demo, featuring "Master of Fists" and instant classics "10,000 Years" and "Blood from Zion," became among the most sought-after tapes in the underground metal scene. High On Fire got straight to the point, bashing away with a neanderthal sense of purpse and creating hyptnotic, droning waves of powerful riffs and low-end thunder of the likes not heard before.
Throughout '99, High On Fire continued writing for their debut full-length. The band recorded their debut with Sleep engineer/producer Billy Anderson at Shark Bite Studios in Oakland, CA. The Art of Self Defense served up a rock hard, unorthodox form of modern metal cloaked in strange religious theology and the trio's style was unique, distinct, heavy as all fuck and absolutely crushing. The album immediately became a cult classic and not even the closure of the label that released the album (Man's Ruin) could stop the powerhouse that had been unleashed. Tee Pee records reissued the album in 2001 with 2 bonus tracks: "Steel Shoes" and a ripping cover of the Celtic Frost song "The Usurper."

LuminiferousUniversally recognized as one of the most potent acts in music today, HIGH ON FIRE creates molten heavy metal that merges primal fury and aggression, blackened bombast and hall of fame heaviness. The group's seventh studio album, Luminiferous is a supersonic exercise in conquest by volume, delivering calculated catharsis as a volcano of revolving riffs and hailstorm of thundering drums combine to beam a blazing spotlight towards the future of modern metal music.

Fire AheadAn Indie-Rock band from San Luis Obispo, California, Lakes formed in 2005. After years of being close friends and playing in different bands, Matt
Covington, Jeremy Wells, Jacob Wick, and Seth Roberts became Lakes. After releasing an EP, a full length, and doing multiple tours, Lakes went into the
studio to work on their most definitive album yet. The songs reflect the years of friendship, the low and high points of life they have shared together, as
well as the lessons and beauty seen through it all. There are no gimmicks with Lakes, no eyeliner, no frills, just honest songs about this thing we all have

Fire From The Evening SunPHILM, the temperamental, highly gifted brainchild of Dave Lombardo certainly did not come to fruition
overnight. Years of life lessons and rhythmical adventures slowly molded and manipulated his latest creation for
the musical misfits of the world.
As a multi-genre labyrinth, PHILM resonates not only the individual symphonic personalities of its members, but
their uniquely agile bond in instrumentation as a whole.
Front-man Gerry Nestler, noted for his undeniable skill and rapport with his guitar, is best known for his work
with progmetallists, Civil Defiance. An impassioned vocalist, his musical journey has also found him gaining
much respect for his lyrical prowess. Nestler describes PHILMs music as, "Heavy but sensitive, powerful and
atmospheric." He further elaborated, saying ". The music of PHILM is channeled through the many different
influences of drum and bass, expressionism, and underground that is indigenous to the street, Nestler states.
There are many different things that Dave and I have been into that have contributed to the vision of PHILM.
Pancho's highly skilled bass playing, chordal color and shape have helped expand the overall sound
instrumentation and groove. Dave Lombardo's drumming goes without comparison.
Bassist, Pancho Tomaselli, a long-time member of funk rockers, War and most recently, Tower of Power is
sought after for his aggressively malleable, yet smooth way around his bass guitar. Drummer, Dave Lombardo,
is most widely known for his legendary work with a band he co-developed at the young age of 17, SLAYER. His
work with Mike Patton (Fantomas), John Zorn (Bladerunner), Grip Inc., and many others, leaves no room for
questioning his legendary status as one of the most skilled and innovative drummers in the world. Justifiably
typecast to the genre he helped trail-blaze, it is certainly a shock to Lombardo enthusiasts to see his infamous
drum set now scaled down to a four piece kit. But, the depth of his musical aptitude is much more than what
has come to be known as his signature sound. His prodigious skill and affinity for heavy, penetrating grooves is
oddly taken to another level in his work with this riveting trio. To quote Tomaselli, "It's like playing with the
seven, not four, horses of the Apocalypse behind you."
PHILMs music is a dense, unholy convergence of tones and discords." Lombardo states, " We tend to live on the
heavy side, but we also touch on haunting, desolate, ambient sounds.
These three innovative musicians have masterfully revived the concept of the Power Trio. Often improvised,
their live set can find their audience entranced by a raw, tonal journey that is both awe-inspiring and thrilling1. Train

Burn Your Fire For No WitnessMany of the superlatives describing Angel Olsen refer to how seemingly little it takes for her to
leave an audience speechless, even spellbound. But Olsen has never been as timid as those
descriptors imply, and the noisy, fiery hints in her earlier work find a fuller expression on her
newest LP, Burn Your Fire for No Witness. Here, Olsen sings with full-throated exultation,
admonition, and bold, expressive melody.Also,with the help of producer John Congleton, her
music now crackles with a churning,rumbling low end and a brighter energy.
Angel Olsen began singing as a young girl in St. Louis, where she explored the remarkable
range of her voice and the places it could take her songwriting. Her self-released debut EP,
Strange Cacti, belied both that early period of discovery and her Midwestern roots. Cautious
and homespun on the one hand,the EP transported us to a mystical, unrecognizable world on
the other, and it garnered extensive praise for its enigmatic beauty.Olsen then went further on
Half Way Home, her first full-length album (released on Bathetic Records), which mined
essential themes while showcasing a more developed voice. Olsen dared to be more personal.
After extensive touring, Olsen eventually settled for a time in Chicago's Logan Square
neighborhood, where she created a collection of songs grown in a year of heartbreak, travel,
and transformation. The new songs go on to tell us to leave, or to high-five a lover who is
lacking, or to dance our way up and out of sorrow. Many of them also remain essentially
unchanged from their bare beginnings.In leaving them so intact, a more self-assured Olsen is
opening up to us, allowing us to be in the room with her at the very genesis of these songs,
when the thread of creation is most vulnerable and least filtered. Our reward for entering this
room are many head-turning moments and the powerful, unsettling recognition of ourselves
in the weave of her songs.
This act of meaning-making recurs as a theme throughout the album, as the sublimating
response to the power of negativity.In the song,Stars,for example,Olsen wishes to"have the
voice of everything" and in a moment of hatefulness and hurt realizes that the strength of fury
results in the power she had been seeking all along. Thankfully for us, Olsen has decided to
channel a lot of this new found power into the ethereal, hypnotic performances of her new and
revealing songs,sharing with us the full grace and beauty of her transformative moments.

40-Year Anniversary Edition
Including The Hits Strawberry Letter 23, Runnin' For Your Lovin' And Q
Louis and George Johnson formed The Brothers Johnson under the auspices of Quincy Jones in 1975, releasing this second album in 1977. With Quincy at the helm as producer, the duo quickly broke wide open with its debut album.
The Brothers Johnson's second album Right on Time consists of some of the best proto-typical funk-soul grooves from the late 70s. The album is again produced by Quincy Jones and his contributions ensure the high quality of the instrumental arrangements and general glossiness of the audio production as in their debut album.
Several of the tracks are as good as anything Michael Jackson or Earth Wind and Fire would've produced around this time, particularly Runnin' For Your Lovin', Strawberry Letter 23 and Never Leave You Lonely. There are also two fantastic instrumentals, Q and Brother Man that are both irrepressibly funky, with Louis Johnson's tight bass providing the solid rhythmic foundation he is famous for. Fusion fans will be familiar with several of the backing musicians: Harvey Mason, Dave Grusin, and Lee Ritenour to name a few.
The single Strawberry Letter 23 gained a #5 spot in the US billboard charts and #1 on the US R&B billboard. The album received platinum.1. Runnin' For Your Lovin'

Dylans Masterpiece Break-Up Album: Sentimental Redemption Arises Amidst Sorrow, Turmoil, Sadness, and Pain
Presence, Immediacy, Naturalness, Realism in Spades: Mobile Fidelity Reissue Makes Blood on the Tracks Among Most Lifelike-Sounding Albums You'll Ever Hear
Songs Flow Like Rivers, Acoustic and Electric Elements Merge Like Bezels on a Diamond
Includes Tangled Up In Blue, Simple Twist of Fate, Idiot Wind, Buckets of Rain
The Freewheelin Bob Dylan, Another Side of Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Blonde on Blonde, and The Basement Tapes Also Available from Mobile Fidelity
Bob Dylan was at several crossroads in the mid-1970s. Artistically, he was largely written off as being past his prime. Emotionally, he was suffering through a painful divorce from his then-wife Sara Lowndes. Creatively, he appeared at a stalemate, his previous decades unprecedented run of transformational brilliance finished. Then came Blood on the Tracks.
A start-to-finish cycle that documents a lovers pursuit of, entanglement with, and loss of a woman, the bracingly intimate 1975 effort remains one of the most encompassing break-up albums ever made and ranks as the most personal statement of the Bards career. To hear it is to experience the agony, frustration, trauma, highs, lows, confusion, sadness, and, ultimately, requisite redemption associated with intimate relationships gone astray. Dylan maintains its a work of fiction, but its evident close-vested autobiographical premise is what helps make it universal: Its the icon singing through tears, going out of his mind, battling hallowing emptiness, firing shots across the bow, and accepting culpability. It is, in short, a consummate expression of loves darker sides and the consequences of what happens when dreams unravel.
As part of its Bob Dylan catalog restoration series, Mobile Fidelity is thoroughly humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the original master tapes and pressing it on dead-quiet LPs at RTI. The end result is the very finest, most transparent analog edition of Blood on the Tracks ever producedand the first-ever proper analog reissue. Fantastically presenting both the solo acoustic and band-supported songs with the utmost clarity, dynamics, presence, immediacy, spaciousness, imaging, and balance, this version shines a high-powered light on the fluid vocal phrasing, timbral shifts, functional rhythms, and inward-looking strumming that contribute to every song here serving as a wound-exposing confessional.
For all the melancholic pain, unresolved questions, shattered memories, wasted times, unrequited dialogs, and weary regret within, Blood on the Tracks remains as daring as it is reflective. Rather than follow for a monotone caustic vibe, Dylans songs burrow into the subconscious for the manners in which they are even-keeled, mellow, and occasionally, even peaceful. Dignity, honor, poignancy, and fairnessall traits uncommon in any situation in which partners dissolve histories, change hearts, and attribute blameinstill the record with equilibrium on par with the consistency of the flowing melodies.
Throughout, tunes come on and proceed as if they could continue forever, Dylan spinning poetic verses and conversations amidst finely tied knots of acoustic notes, chords, and fills, the deceivingly simple architecture conjuring the intertwined refractions of a bezeled jewel, various angles, colors, and textures conjoining into a gorgeously inseparable whole. Backed by Tony Browns flexible albeit subtle bass, Buddy Cages country-streaked pedal-steel guitar, and Paul Griffins soul-baring organan instrument used to shadow, tuckpoint, and illuminate here as effectively as any time in rock historyDylan pours soulful emotion, open his veins, and bleeds.
Ranked 16 on Rolling Stones list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and replete with existential thought, piercing directness, raw singing, and majestic arrangements,
Given the sonic and artistic merit of this album, we anticipate huge demand.

In 1997, Sub Pop approached Sunny Day's members for help in compiling
a rarities album. Because there were so few usable tracks, band
founders Jeremy Enigk and Dan Hoerner agreed to get together and write
some new material to augment the archival songs, but they wound up
crafting an entire new album in a matter of days.
Without Mendel, who remains with Foo Fighters to this day, Sunny Day
reunited to record How It Feels to Be Something On, which Sub Pop
released on Sept. 22, 1998. After 2000's The Rising Tide, the band split,

The Promise: Darkness On The Edge Of TownImport
21 Tracks Spread Out Over Three High-quality, 180 Gram Vinyl LPs. Lyrics To All Of The Songs, A New Essay From Bruce Springsteen And Never-before-seen Photographs From The "Darkness" Sessions Are Also Included
Darkness was my 'samurai' record, Springsteen writes, stripped to the frame and ready to rumble." But the music that got left behind was substantial. For the first time, fans will have access to 21 previously-unreleased songs from the Darkness recording sessions, songs that, as Springsteen writes, perhaps could have/should have been released after Born To Run and before the collection of songs that Darkness on the Edge of Town became.
Highlights include the extraordinary rock version of Racing in the Street, the never-before-released original recordings of Because the Night, Fire, and Rendezvous, the supreme pop opus Someday (We'll Be Together), the hilarious Ain't Good Enough for You, the superb soul-based vocal performance on The Broken Hearted, the utterly haunting Breakaway, and the now finally released, fully orchestrated masterpiece and title song, The Promise. All 21 songs have been mixed by Springsteen's long-time collaborator, Bob Clearmountain. According to long-time manager/producer Jon Landau, There isn't a weak card in this deck. The Promise is simply a great listening experience.1. Racing In The Street ('78)

Glimmers of the deeply psychedelic sludge the band would become famous for are there, coupled with moments of Emperor influenced symphonic metal.

The Apothic GloomSKELETONWITCH are "a band that makes metal so brilliant, vital and special" (Metal Hammer). Relinquishing genre-boundaries with their mixture of blackened thrash, death and heavy metal, the band are a force to be reckoned with as they have incessantly spent the past ten years touring across the world while simultaneously releasing the most zealous, catchy riffs and precisely pummeling rhythms across five full-length releases with Prosthetic Records, including their most recent 2013 effort "Serpents Unleashed", which saw the band land at their highest chart position, #62 of Billboard's Top 200.
SKELETONWITCH have cemented the group's reputation as one of metal's most important acts landing themselves on high visibility tours with the likes of Danzig, Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse, Amon Amarth, Ghost B.C., and The Black Dahlia Murder and extensive headlining jaunts, including a 63 shows in 65 days run.
The band present a reenergized power with the new year as they announce new vocalist Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) to the current line-up consisting of Evan Linger (bass), Dustin Boltjes (drums) and founding members Scott Hedrick and Nate Garnette on guitars. SKELETONWITCH debuted the first new material from their recording session at Baltimore, MD's Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten (Noisem, Mutilation Rites) with the 7 single "Well of Despair" which they debuted live while being featured on this year's Decibel Magazine tour alongside Abbath, High on Fire and Tribulation. The single will be featured on their forthcoming EP, "The Apothic Gloom".
Scheduled for release via Prosthetic, "The Apothic Gloom" showcases four tracks spanning just under 20 minutes of what Noisey hails as a "cold blast of icy, melodic black metal" with "plenty of shredding". #WorshipTheWitch1. The Apothic Gloom

Sentenced To LifeSouthern Lord is proud to unleash the second album from Seattle's barbaric wrecking crew that is Black Breath! Sentenced To Life is the highly anticipated follow-up to the band's raging 2010 debut album, Heavy Breathing. The new album projects an even more vile, metallic sonic attack than its predecessor with a bit less rock and roll swagger and more full-on crushing death metal rage.
This is a product of furious creativity jammed into a short span of time, written in the seemingly endless Winter after returning from their November 2010 European tour. Bearing 10 thunderous tracks in just under 33 minutes, Sentenced to Life features such smashing Black Breath hits as Feast of the Damned, Doomed, Forced Into Possession, Home of the Grave and of course the title anthem Sentenced to Life.
The band once again recorded at God City Studios with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, High on Fire), and had the finished product mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side. Easily the band's most powerful recording to date!1. Feast Of The Damned

RustRust" is the new album from Harm's Way. Recorded at Brick Top Recordings by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt), mixed at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails). Brutally and meticulously refined, "Rust" brilliantly combines industrial repetition (think Godflesh), metal attack (think Sepultura, Helmet, Celtic Frost), and hardcore aggression. Showing that Harm's Way have emerged from the wreckage of past genres as the new high watermark of heavy in contemporary aggressive music.
Opener "Infestation" stomps with machine-like precision before plunging into a depressing sonic dirge. While songs like "Law Of The Land", "Hope", "Cancerous Ways", and others introduce guitar and electronic driven atmospherics into the arsenal. These subtle dynamics bleed into other aspects of "Rust" as well. Mid-album beast "Left To Disintegrate" unfurls as an unforgettable anti-anthem ripe with infectious creeping metallic undertones. While "Amongst The Rust" and "Turn To Stone" introduce guest vocals from Colin Young (Twitching Tongues) and Emily Jancetic. Both of them adding haunting nuance to the brute force of the band.

Finally...a new Sleep song!!! The first new song from the masters since their life changing, anthemic 63 minutes & 36 second opus to marijuana: Dopesmoker (1999)!: "The Clarity" on side A, Etching on side B. Artwork (Etching) by David V. D'Andrea. Mastered by John Golden. Recorded by Noah Landis. "The Clarity" 12" was previously only available directly from the band via their merch table or online web-store. This Southern Lord version has been recut by Adam Gonsalves/Telegraph Mastering and pressed on 180 gram vinyl at RTI.
The Lord version also has the ultra heavy-weight vinyl housed in a thick plastic picture disc style sleeve with the iconic Sleep logo silk-screened on the front.
While there may have been a few like them before them, there were none like them really and certainly none of after them. And so in 2009 when they were reborn with Cisneros who'd been reframing the world with the band OM, Matt Pike doing double duty with this and his HIGH ON FIRE, and the estimable Jason Roeder doing the same with NEUROSIS, SLEEP did what it had done and what it had left to do. Largely and without pause, make music in tune with The Ages.1.The Clarity$17.99180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
