BLUE LETTER, THE - LOVE IS NOT CONTROL (COLOR)
In a time when the hardcore scene has been confined to breakdowns and guitar squeals; and fashion has seemed to become more important than ideas and music, The Blue Letter challenges stereotypes and genre boundaries with explosive textured soundscapes. Their music is passionate and dynamic, layered with hoarse screamy vocals and soft interludes. The Blue Letter has transformed in many ways since their first full-length, Prima Facie (Blood & Ink Records, 2007). Following the release and positive critical reception of their debut, founding members Dan Shebaylo (vocals, guitar) and Silas Zdybel (drums) left Sacramento, California to establish a new home in Richmond, Virginia where they met bassist and vocalist Brendan Artz. With a range of influences from mid-late 90's screamo bands to the post metal giants of today, The Blue Letter can be found somewhere-both sonically and geographically-between Envy and Cult Of Luna. Recorded by Chris Dowhan (Giant/Brave Young, Antlers, Becoming The Archetype, etc.) and featuring original artwork by Michael Repasch-Nieves (of Junius). Thirteen songs clocking at 75 minutes on two 12" vinyl records complete with a poster insert and colored vinyl to round out the package!

KEN MODE - VENERABLE
Known for effortlessly blending noise rock reminiscent of old-school Amphetamine Reptile bands with the raw and aggressive nature of modern hardcore, KEN Mode has become one of the most devastating bands in the underground, following suit in the lineage of forward thinking heavy music to come out of the Great White North - what you might hear if Voivod and Cursed had a baby that started a noise-rock band. Songs like "Batholith" and "Book of Muscle" cling to the traditions of hardcore music that resonate with fans of Converge or Trap Them while "A Wicked Pike" takes on spastic noise rock elements, and "Flight of the Echo Hawk" pushes forth as a mind-bending instrumental masterpiece, clearly influenced by the post-rock movement of the 2000s. "Venerable", the band's fourth full-length album was produced by Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE), mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, and features layout by Josh Graham (NEUROSIS, RED SPAROWES). This vinyl pressing (CD available on Profound Lore) comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket with alternate artwork from the CD version.

Swedish doom metal heavyweights, SUMA, return with not only their first full-length since the 2010 release of their critically-acclaimed "Ashes" album, but also, their first album ever to be released in North America! The Order Of Things was recorded in Portland, OR by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Bongzilla, Melvins) and once again proves that SUMA is one of the best in the genre, although North America has been slow to the realization, that is set to change with the 2016 release of The Order Of Things. Already achieving attention on popular metal websites like No Clean Singing, SUMA is a must-listen for fans of bands like Neurosis, Bongzilla, Yob, Weedeater, and Zoroaster; providing the perfect blend of heavy doom metal, psych riffs, and ambient distorted sludge. FFO: Neurosis, Yob, Bongzilla

TOWERS - FULL CIRCLE
Since 2004 TOWERS has been one of the hardest working DIY hardcore bands, touring every inch of the United States, not to mention a good chunk of Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe. The band has released almost a dozen records, cd's, and cassettes; the majority of them being self-released, and the majority of them also selling out with absolutely no distribution In 2008 TOWERS only played a handful of shows around their homebase of Philadelphia, PA and took time to focus on writing and recording their sophomore full-length, and follow up to their self-titled debut CD/LP released on Electric Human Project/Turnstile. Summer 2008 the band entered the studio with Steve Roche (Off Minor) to record Full Circle, which is the band's greatest work to date. A great blend of technical and screamy intelligent hardcore. LP is a split release with the band's own label, Towering Sound.

BATTLEFIELDS - AGASSIZ
After the release of their 2009 full-length, "Thresholds Of Imbalance", BATTLEFIELDS lost founding guitarist Andrew Wallin, and went on a brief hiatus from playing shows. "Agassiz" is the band's return to the trenches with two new members and a more sonically assaulting blackened blend of metal and hardcore. Agassiz blasts through six songs in under a half-hour, presenting a concept EP of the glacial lake Agassiz, whose dried up geographic location is where the band's base of operations lies. Fans of the band's previous work my be taken aback by the sheer force of this new material, with pummeling blast beats, but there is still the familiar sound throughout the EP that BATTLEFIELDS has perfected since it's conception in 2006. Agassiz lyrical content deals with when Lake Agassiz's ice dams broke and rose sea levels, destroying the old world, and setting up the new world for corrupt religious control. Featuring artwork and layout by Seldon Hunt.

BLINDING LIGHT - JUNEBUG
The long-awaited follow up to 2004's "Ascension Attempt". In 2005, while working on their follow-up sophomore album, the band played what would be their last show, and seemingly vanished into hiatus, with members focusing on other projects and bands. Flash forward to 2008 when Init Records approached the band members about a reunion show for the second annual Init Fest. The band played to a packed house and was well-received. The energy and excitement was in the air; THE BLINDING LIGHT had returned to the stage. In the midst of this all, the band finally brushed the dust off of their unfinished follow-up album, and proceeded to finish the album, marking their most monumental album to date, taking the bands sound to the next level; the final result, Junebug, has been highly anticipated by fans for years, often popping up as the subject on message boards and websites. Features breathtaking original artwork and layout by Aaron Horkey of Burlesque Design. Printed and packaged in a 100% recycled EcoPak digipak.

BLUE LETTER, THE - LOVE IS NOT CONTROL
In a time when the hardcore scene has been confined to breakdowns and guitar squeals; and fashion has seemed to become more important than ideas and music, The Blue Letter challenges stereotypes and genre boundaries with explosive textured soundscapes. Their music is passionate and dynamic, layered with hoarse screamy vocals and soft interludes. The Blue Letter has transformed in many ways since their first full-length, Prima Facie (Blood & Ink Records, 2007). Following the release and positive critical reception of their debut, founding members Dan Shebaylo (vocals, guitar) and Silas Zdybel (drums) left Sacramento, California to establish a new home in Richmond, Virginia where they met bassist and vocalist Brendan Artz. With a range of influences from mid-late 90's screamo bands to the post metal giants of today, The Blue Letter can be found somewhere-both sonically and geographically-between Envy and Cult Of Luna.

ROSETTA - QUINTESSENTIAL EPHEMERA
Quintessential Ephemera, the new album from Philadelphia's post-rock/ambient, ROSETTA. Their first record as a five-piece, with Eric Jernigan (CITY OF SHIPS) on guitar and vocals. It was recorded and mixed at Machines With Magnets (BATTLES, THE BODY, BRAVEYOUNG) in Providence, and mastered by Colin Marston (of GORGUTS, KRALLICE, DYSRHYTHMIA) at The Thousand Caves in New York. Quintessential Ephemera is both existential and deeply hopeful. It has some of ROSETTA's moodiest work to date, but has an upward force to it that delivers an appropriate counterpoint to the darkness and nihilism of The Anaesthete. FFO: Isis, Neurosis, Frodus, Mouth Of The Architect NO EXPORT: Germany, Japan

SINKING STEPS RISING EYES - MAJESTIC BLUE
Sinking Steps...Rising Eyes present their long awaited debut full length, a collection of songs, it's more inline with a musical composition; with traces of their roots in hardcore. Clocking in at over 40 minutes, the album feels organic and life like, songs seem to have personality. Vocals are few but each song seems to speak volumes. The album is as brutal as it is serene, with comparisons to bands like Denali, (a less heavy) Isis, Mogwai, and the Blackheart Procession. The songs are crafted with guitar, bass, piano/keys, flute, melodica, vocals and drums.

SLEEPING IN GETHSEMANE - BURROWS
In the ocean of droning, doomy instrumental post-hardcore bands, SLEEPING IN GETHSEMANE breathes a fresh breath of air with their instrumental music, full of energy and life (and even the occasional non-mic'ed vocal scream here and there). Formed at the end of 2005 and influenced by their desolate surroundings of North Dakota's Great Plains, SLEEPING IN GETHSEMANE also took hints from bands like RUSSIAN CIRCLES and EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY while maintaining a level of energy and excitement, especially during their live performances, often lacking in instrumental bands today. SLEEPING IN GETHSEMANE transcends genres and fans, sharing stages with both the likely and unlikely. After achieving praise from regional press for their self-released debut CD, The Great White North, the band decided it was time to look for a label and focus on touring. Their follow-up album, Burrows, is a well polished collection of eight songs clocking in at 48 minutes, recorded in Minneapolis, MN at the Devil's Workshop (BATTLEFIELDS, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS). Printed and packaged in a 100% recycled EcoPak digipak.

SUMA - ORDER OF THINGS
Swedish doom metal heavyweights, SUMA, return with not only their first full-length since the 2010 release of their critically-acclaimed "Ashes" album, but also, their first album ever to be released in North America! The Order Of Things was recorded in Portland, OR by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Bongzilla, Melvins) and once again proves that SUMA is one of the best in the genre, although North America has been slow to the realization, that is set to change with the 2016 release of The Order Of Things. Already achieving attention on popular metal websites like No Clean Singing, SUMA is a must-listen for fans of bands like Neurosis, Bongzilla, Yob, Weedeater, and Zoroaster; providing the perfect blend of heavy doom metal, psych riffs, and ambient distorted sludge.

TOWERS - FULL CIRCLE
Since 2004 TOWERS has been one of the hardest working DIY hardcore bands, touring every inch of the United States, not to mention a good chunk of Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe. The band has released almost a dozen records, cd's, and cassettes; the majority of them being self-released, and the majority of them also selling out with absolutely no distribution In 2008 TOWERS only played a handful of shows around their homebase of Philadelphia, PA and took time to focus on writing and recording their sophomore full-length, and follow up to their self-titled debut CD/LP released on Electric Human Project/Turnstile. Summer 2008 the band entered the studio with Steve Roche (Off Minor) to record Full Circle, which is the band's greatest work to date. A great blend of technical and screamy intelligent hardcore.

WOLVHAMMER - BLACK MARKETEERS OF WORLD WAR III
Black Marketeers of World War III is a textural, monolithic display of modern black metal. With styles ranging from 3 minute punk infused thrash jams, to 8 minute lush, blackened opuses, BMWWIII is bound to turn heads. The production credits to the record read like a who's who in modern heavy music. With Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Twilight, Minsk) at the board, Colin Jordan (Ministry, Yakuza, Pigface) handling mastering duties, and Stavros Giannopoulos (the Atlas Moth) in charge of layout and design, Wolvhammer clearly pulled out all the stops to deliver an overwhelming debut.

YEAR OF NO LIGHT - VAMPYR
Initially composed to be played as a live soundtrack (like at Roadburn Festival 2011 for example) on Carl Dreyer's "Vampyr" (silent film from 1932), this long musical piece was finally recorded in february 2012. The result is not a new YEAR OF NO LIGHT album but a long new track (72 minutes) with YEAR OF NO LIGHT classic heavy riffs mixed with more experimental and drone tunes that can remind us their collaborative records with NADJA or THISQUIETARMY. This is U.S. pressing, a CD-only release packaged in a 6-panel CD wallet, and limited to 500 copies. Vinyl version available from MusicFearSatan.
