    The Contortionist represents fearlessness in musical expression, designed to please artist as much as audience. This band makes progressive metal music, anchored in the heavy sounds that first drew the individual players to the stage, yet unmoored by convention or expectation.

    Clairvoyant, which reunited the band with producer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Through The Eyes Of The Dead), takes the best elements of The Contortionist's past and reshapes them as the band follows their individual creative muses toward the future.On Clairvoyant, the band's distinctive fingerprints remain, even as their atmospheric flourishes broaden to encompass ever-richer textures and mine the beauty of simplicity.

    Women & Children

    West Coast-based AUTHOR & PUNISHER, the long-running, one-man industrial doom project propagated by iconic sound contortionist Tristan Shone, is pleased to announce his fifth and latest creation of audio rebellion. Titled Women & Children, the follow up to last year's critically lauded Ursus Americanus full-length further challenges the traditional confines of extreme music with eight tracks of audio exploration and mechanical decomposition.

    Shone elaborates: "AUTHOR & PUNISHER's newest sonic endeavor combines elements of both machines and more traditional apparati to stretch and blur the dynamic palette from doom to industrial, to heavy bass music, and back again."

    Adds Seventh Rule Recordings label head Scott Flaster: "The new AUTHOR & PUNISHER? On first listen I was thrown into a grey world where the bleakness of early industrial music layered with a heavier contemporary dirge. "

    Party dance show assaulted Chicagoland UHF eyeballs

    humor poured out of oddball outpost The CopHerBox
    II and onto TV screens, presented here as a 100 minute
    video mixtape on DVD. Its companion compilation

    music culled from a trove of self-released 45s and
    small-time 12"s. Die-cut cathode-ray jacket and six in-package
    stills put the Party at your fingertips.

    Each edition of Ultra-High
    Frequencies: The Chicago Party will arrive in one of six
    cover configurations, all of which are interchangeable
    via printed inner sleeves and enclosed booklet. It also includes our entertaining DVD mix tape,
    isolating the most absurd and outrageous moments from

    The Migration (Out Of Stock)

    The Migration, the new album from progressive instrumentalists SCALE THE SUMMIT, will be released in North America on June 11 via Prosthetic Records. Recorded earlier this year at North Carolina's Basement Studios with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, HE IS LEGEND, FOR TODAY), the album will feature cover artwork by illustrator Duncan Storr (HAWKWIND, EDGE OF SANITY).

    The Migration marks the recording debut of new SCALE THE SUMMIT bassist Mark Michell. The album will be released just days after SCALE THE SUMMIT hits the road with INTRONAUT on a summer North American tour.

    SCALE THE SUMMIT's 2011 effort, The Collective, saw the band tour alongside the likes of PERIPHERY, CYNIC, FAIR TO MIDLAND, THE CONTORTIONIST, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, PROTEST THE HERO and TRIOSCAPES. Since that album's touring cycle ended late last year, the band has kept busy, with guitarist Chris Letchford launching his own signature series Strandberg guitar and bassist Mark Michell releasing an instructional book.

    The follow-up to 2009's Carving Desert Canyons, The Collective was recorded at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (DEVILDRIVER, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER).
