BASK - AMERICAN HOLLOW
With roots in americana, stoner metal and post-rock, Bask is turning out their own brand of doom. Psychedelic, heavy, and scenic songs weave through sections of driving riffs, thundering percussion, loose grooves and glimmering guitar. All topped with vocals that conjure spirits of old country crooners. "Bask are a young band from North Carolina that play a highly original blend of Americana, country, post-rock and stoner/doom metal. American Hollow is the bands debut on The Path Less Traveled Records and, without a doubt, I can say it is one of the most unique records Ive come across in years. "High Mountain Pass" is an energetic album opener, starting with a half-time shuffle that breaks into a pretty straight-forward stoner rock groove, similar to some of the less aggressive tunes by Red Fang. The vocals have a pretty noticeable twang to them, giving the music a distinctly country vibe, though with a bit more power and volume than anything youll hear on a modern country record. The vocals are a strong point, to be sure, but the music theyre soaring over is just as powerful; jangly guitars, low rumbly bass, and big drums that are pretty reminiscent of the tone John Bonham laid down in classic Led Zeppelin, though with a little more dynamics. The first track might be a little misleading though, as the rest of the album has an almost dreamlike feel to them, particularly on the slower songs like "American Hollow" and "A Mans Worth," both of which have a melancholy country-like feel to them. "American Hollow" in particular has a post-rock, indie rock vibe mixed in, almost like Band Of Horses, except Bask go into a bit heavier territory, whereas Band Of Horses obviously have a more radio-friendly vibe." For fans of Led Zeppelin, Red Fang, and Band of Horses.

CENTURIES - BROKEN HYMNS
Musically Centuries provide the tools to enable both, the modern hardcore heart and the "Beyond Thunderdome" in Crustpunk bliss. Gloomy, infernal, apocalyptic, destructive, nihilistic, full of rage and - Warning: pathos - despair roll the songs partially, furiousness elsewhere, with breakdowns by surprise and then again ready to attack. Think of the mood of From Ashes Rise, the "drill head" aggressiveness slower Converge songs Association mood of Trap Them and out comes Centuries - with the difference that there are songs simple and clear, almost tidy. This record shows the complete discography PLUS 4 brand new demo-recordings, which will also appear on their Debut Lp on Southern Lord in Autumn 2013! Be prepared for total destruction. On ,Broken Hymns" you'll find the songs from the debut 7 ", the split 7" with Homestretch, the split 7 "with Patsy O'Hara and four completely new songs! Printed innersleeve.

CLOSET DISCO QUEEN - CLOSET DISCO QUEEN
Again? Jona Nido and Luc Hess (COILGUNS, KUNZ, THE OCEAN, THE FAWN, SCHWARZ, etc.) have a new hot friend. She came out of her auntie's closet and will ruin your teenage disco. The loudest cheerleader you've ever seen - barely dressed and roughly combed, queue jumping everyone at the entrance of the club. Here she comes, out of nowhere and without warning, carried around by two of the sexiest bodyguards - like she always belonged. Fact is that girl can dance. She dares. She rocks. Odd and weird, charming enough to turn any of her nights into a freak show. We all knew these two guys were party animals, but this band will bring them to a whole new level of frenzy. That CLOSET DISCO QUEEN delivers 70's instrumental psycheledic kraut rock'n'roll progressive beats for your ass to shake and your shoes to burn. Huuuh, you nasty girl. For fans of Oxxes, Don Caballero, Russian Circle.

Das eNde from Hamburg are a quite new band around. After recording a demo they decided to release their album on their own label ChuChu Records and asked TCM to join them in their operation. Das eNde fit perfectly the gap between Die Nerven, Freiburg and Messer. they also sing in german and play typical north-german punk rock - deeply influenced by Das Moor, Dackelblut, Oiro but with a touch of noisy guitar work - maybe compareable to Kurt.

DEMON HEAD - RIDE THE WILDERNESS
After this Copenhagen 5 piece formed in 2012, released a demo EP and a two-track EP, the first longplayer of top knotch doom will be released through TCM. The previously released songs were recorded once again and put on the new record. Rock is the backbone of the record, the ghosts of classic rock bands haunts this records, but not taking over the sound of the band. The vocals are reminiscent of Danzig and Year Of the Goat, but less anthemic and more gritty. The guitar sound is not overly distorted, which gives this record the taste of old spiderwebs from a tomb, but played in the fashion of Thin Lizzy. The lyrical center orbits around doom rock topics, like occults, fantasy, close to In Solitude and Cirith Ungol. Obviously these dudes gave the universe, demons and drugs a serious thought! As if the last 30 years of metal evolution weren't there, the band strikes through distorted blues riffs, spooky lyrics and mind crippling slow drum parts. This proto-doom band swings like Bill Ward, battling through guitar parts when Tommi Iommi and Victor Griffin meet in hell, topped with the reminiscient sound of Bobby Liebling. Blues, swing and soul mixed in satans kitchen, can't miss this!

The band's second Album goes a step further than "Fluidum" - more delay, a greater nihilistic outbreak - between teenage angst and coming' of age.

Following on from the success of their 2012 self-titled debut, This Charming Man Records is pleased to announce the release Labyrinth, of the second album by the Berlin-based hard rock outfit. Heat are unmistakably taken with a time when all great records came adorned with monochrome swirls and elaborate sleeves depicting worlds of necromancy, witches and cosmic encounters. Featuring former members of The Hara-Kee-Rees, Samsara Blues Experiment and Grandloom their self-titled debut on Electric Magic Records was a heavy-blues driven journey into the very heart of the 1970s. Which, regardless of your particular predilection for classic rock saw the Berlin five-piece strike every chord. On their follow up - much like Swedish hard rock revivalists Graveyard and Horisont - Heat continue to revel in the buzz of audacious twin guitar solos, Hammond organs and telepathic band jams.

MOUNTAIN WITCH - BURNING VILLAGE
Doomy hard rockers Mountain Witch took the underworld by storm with their late 2013 LP 'Cold River'. Their gameplan was simple and effective: take the low-end darkness of Black Sabbath and the pugilistic riffing of Judas Priest and drape them in shadow. One could be forgiven for misreading the album title 'Cold River' as 'Reel to reel tape found in the cellar of an abandoned house in the woods, circa 1976'. Now, two and a half years later, the northern German trio is back with their second album, 'Burning Village'. In the interim between albums Mountain Witch broke the bank on focusing and tightening their songcraft, honing the edge of their established identity while mining previously untapped potential: adding dimension, widening the scope and prominence of the vocals and worshipping the riff with increasing fervor. 'Burning Village' is horror literature in leather and inked-stained denim, protometal from Innsmouth, the soundtrack of choice for Dunwich by night. At this point the band is out of the cellar and out of the woods. Unleashed on an unsuspecting world Mountain Witch is ready to patrol stages and burn down villages with their riff-fueled fury.

MOUNTAIN WITCH - COLD RIVER (ORANGE VINYL)
New pressing of orange vinyl! Since then Mountain Witch has not only recruited a third member in bass player Tobert Knopp, they have returned with a more focused and ambitious sound on their follow up album Cold River. Their first release on This Charming Man Records - the Muenster based label responsible for Die Nerven, The Moth, Messer and more - while that loose and low slung spirit of Scythe. still remains, it's now strengthened by an unmistakable 70s psych rock majesty. With vintage tones and killer riffs reminiscent of early Sabbath, their new direction also takes in the boogie of Blue Cheer, ballsy strut of Deep Purple and the total ambition of Pink Floyd. A sound that doesn't shy away from its hard rock roots and at the same time doesn't stop long enough to rest on them. A more structured record than anything they've ever laid down before, Cold River's newest and most noticeable characteristic can be heard in the addition of Rene Sitte's vocals and darkened lyrics. Lysergic tales spun out over haunting grooves that never stray far from the arcane acid jams that inspired them originally and can be heard here echoing across ncient Light' and the curiously titled Shrubbery The Warlock'. There's also a distinct feeling that while the Mountain Witch of old were content to plug in and rock out, the epic guitar assaults and rhythm and doom sections of Sleepers Chant' and The Covey' give this latest incarnation a newfound purpose. One that could give the likes of Dead Meadow, Uncle Acid and former label mates Kadavar.

ORACLES - BEDROOM EYES
'Bedroom Eyes' is Oracles' first longplaying outing. It's taken from a lyric of the upbeat, sphynxian 'Thoughts Of Love On The Verge Of Sleep'.

SEE THROUGH DRESSES - SEE THROUGH DRESSES
See Through Dresses released their debut self-titled LP in November of 2013. Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo (which was part of Tim Kashers latest Album "Adult Film" and did the whole US-Tour), along with drummer Nate Van Fleet, have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the 80's, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of 90's dream-pop and shoegaze. The arrangements often build as though to erupt, only to implode. There are moments when Bertuldo and Carroll sound noxious and distant, their voices doused in reverb, their guitars droning and pulsing. When the clouds look dark, See Through Dresses offer flashes of pure pop sunshine to punctuate those moments of isolation and distance. At their most hopeful, they remind us of the simplicity of longing and the eagerness that accompanies an expectation for love in a loveless culture. At their most honest, See Through Dresses portray a dull terror born of idleness, sickness, and failure. The result is a well-rounded catalogue that disillusions as it comforts and soothes as it burns by injecting the familiarity of music-gone-by with lyrics about regrettable psychologies - its a total bummer thats still fun to listen to.

SPACE CHASER - WATCH THE SKIES
This rat pack from berlin will blow your mind. Think of hi-tops, beer & thrashing! you haven't been caught headbangin' lately? Reminiscent of my late 80s skateboarding with D.R.I. on the walkmen. This is absolutely pure 80's thrash metal like old Agent Steel - a fast, ripping & in your face old-school attack. "From time to time modern day metal bands decide to keep the traditions alive, Space Chaser are no exception. The Thrash Metal quintet from Berlin release their premiere demo this year and it showed excellency right from the first riff, this is 80's style Thrash Metal in the vein of Anthrax and Metallica mostly, with the classic and easily detectable riffs and signature drumming as the backdrop, Space Chaser are nowhere near the Teutonic Thrash Metal style that has plagued the German metal scene for years. As long as they keep this up, they could make a name for themselves in the European metal scenes, you won't need a time travel machine to see 80's Thrash Metal, let the Space Chaser get it for you."

TIDAL SLEEP - TIDAL SLEEP
This "untitled" Ep features four brand new songs which are more catchy and indie-like in its songwriting as the last record. But no need to panic, this is still the enegry driven Tidal Sleep outfit, you know from their debut. the new songs bring the typical TTS shoegaze-ish guitarlayers over dreamy delay-scapes, beautiful melodies, a massive sounding driving bass (which matched the precize drumming perfectly) plus Nic metaphoric filled lyrics screamed & spoken mixing anger and despair. this record takes a big musical step forward, a further step away from the classical modern hardcore stuff towards an almost "pop"-sounding postrock-songwriting. Some parts oft he new songs remind me sometimes at the mighty Mogwai or Envy, as powerful and as beautiful. This is as good as passionate & heartfelt music can be. Chapo! The cover comes with partial glossy printing - the 12" has an etching on the B-Side! Listen here Genre: Modern Hardcore -like La Dispute; Touché Amoré, Pianos Become The Teeth.

BASK - AMERICAN HOLLOW
With roots in americana, stoner metal and post-rock, Bask is turning out their own brand of doom. Psychedelic, heavy, and scenic songs weave through sections of driving riffs, thundering percussion, loose grooves and glimmering guitar. All topped with vocals that conjure spirits of old country crooners. "Bask are a young band from North Carolina that play a highly original blend of Americana, country, post-rock and stoner/doom metal. American Hollow is the bands debut on The Path Less Traveled Records and, without a doubt, I can say it is one of the most unique records Ive come across in years. "High Mountain Pass" is an energetic album opener, starting with a half-time shuffle that breaks into a pretty straight-forward stoner rock groove, similar to some of the less aggressive tunes by Red Fang. The vocals have a pretty noticeable twang to them, giving the music a distinctly country vibe, though with a bit more power and volume than anything youll hear on a modern country record. The vocals are a strong point, to be sure, but the music theyre soaring over is just as powerful; jangly guitars, low rumbly bass, and big drums that are pretty reminiscent of the tone John Bonham laid down in classic Led Zeppelin, though with a little more dynamics. The first track might be a little misleading though, as the rest of the album has an almost dreamlike feel to them, particularly on the slower songs like "American Hollow" and "A Mans Worth," both of which have a melancholy country-like feel to them. "American Hollow" in particular has a post-rock, indie rock vibe mixed in, almost like Band Of Horses, except Bask go into a bit heavier territory, whereas Band Of Horses obviously have a more radio-friendly vibe." For fans of Led Zeppelin, Red Fang, and Band of Horses.

CLOSET DISCO QUEEN - CLOSET DISCO QUEEN
Again? Jona Nido and Luc Hess (COILGUNS, KUNZ, THE OCEAN, THE FAWN, SCHWARZ, etc.) have a new hot friend. She came out of her auntie's closet and will ruin your teenage disco. The loudest cheerleader you've ever seen - barely dressed and roughly combed, queue jumping everyone at the entrance of the club. Here she comes, out of nowhere and without warning, carried around by two of the sexiest bodyguards - like she always belonged. Fact is that girl can dance. She dares. She rocks. Odd and weird, charming enough to turn any of her nights into a freak show. We all knew these two guys were party animals, but this band will bring them to a whole new level of frenzy. That CLOSET DISCO QUEEN delivers 70's instrumental psycheledic kraut rock'n'roll progressive beats for your ass to shake and your shoes to burn. Huuuh, you nasty girl.

DEMON HEAD - RIDE THE WILDERNESS
After this Copenhagen 5 piece formed in 2012, released a demo EP and a two-track EP, the first longplayer of top knotch doom will be released through TCM. The previously released songs were recorded once again and put on the new record. Rock is the backbone of the record, the ghosts of classic rock bands haunts this records, but not taking over the sound of the band. The vocals are reminiscent of Danzig and Year Of the Goat, but less anthemic and more gritty. The guitar sound is not overly distorted, which gives this record the taste of old spiderwebs from a tomb, but played in the fashion of Thin Lizzy. The lyrical center orbits around doom rock topics, like occults, fantasy, close to In Solitude and Cirith Ungol. Obviously these dudes gave the universe, demons and drugs a serious thought! As if the last 30 years of metal evolution weren't there, the band strikes through distorted blues riffs, spooky lyrics and mind crippling slow drum parts. This proto-doom band swings like Bill Ward, battling through guitar parts when Tommi Iommi and Victor Griffin meet in hell, topped with the reminiscient sound of Bobby Liebling. Blues, swing and soul mixed in satans kitchen, can't miss this!

HEAT are more than able to match up to the likes of Witchcraft and Graveyard!!! Following on from the success of their 2012 self-titled debut, This Charming Man Records is pleased to announce the release Labyrinth, of the second album by the Berlin-based hard rock outfit. Heat are unmistakably taken with a time when all great records came adorned with monochrome swirls and elaborate sleeves depicting worlds of necromancy, witches and cosmic encounters. Featuring former members of The Hara-Kee-Rees, Samsara Blues Experiment and Grandloom their self-titled debut on Electric Magic Records was a heavy-blues driven journey into the very heart of the 1970's. Which, regardless of your particular predilection for classic rock saw the Berlin five-piece strike every chord. On their follow up - much like Swedish hard rock revivalists Graveyard and Horisont - Heat continue to revel in the buzz of audacious twin guitar solos, Hammond organs and telepathic band jams.

MESSER - DIE UNSICHTBAREN
And because real, not staged rage these days has become a rare thing in music, I predict, this german band will divide opinions. One half will think it's great what these guys do, the other half has no idea what this is about. GENRE: 80'S POSTPUNK, KRAUTROCK

MOTH, THE - AND THEN RISE
"This album was one of my top albums to look out for in 2015. Does it live up to expectations? You betcha. The Moth has delivered an album that outclasses the debut album in every respect. It seems The Moth have upped their game for this release as the album ventures into more progressive territory with elements of Thrash Metal appearing now and then. (.) The Moth have created an album that is going to end up on a few Best of 2015 album lists. Its already grabbed a place on mine. And Then Rise is simply unmissable on every level." -The Sludgelord 2015. For fans of KYLESA and BARONESS.

MOUNTAIN WITCH - BURNING VILLAGE
Doomy hard rockers Mountain Witch took the underworld by storm with their late 2013 LP 'Cold River'. Their gameplan was simple and effective: take the low-end darkness of Black Sabbath and the pugilistic riffing of Judas Priest and drape them in shadow. One could be forgiven for misreading the album title 'Cold River' as 'Reel to reel tape found in the cellar of an abandoned house in the woods, circa 1976'. Now, two and a half years later, the northern German trio is back with their second album, 'Burning Village'. In the interim between albums Mountain Witch broke the bank on focusing and tightening their songcraft, honing the edge of their established identity while mining previously untapped potential: adding dimension, widening the scope and prominence of the vocals and worshipping the riff with increasing fervor. 'Burning Village' is horror literature in leather and inked-stained denim, protometal from Innsmouth, the soundtrack of choice for Dunwich by night. At this point the band is out of the cellar and out of the woods. Unleashed on an unsuspecting world Mountain Witch is ready to patrol stages and burn down villages with their riff-fueled fury.

MOUNTAIN WITCH - COLD RIVER
Since then Mountain Witch has not only recruited a third member in bass player Tobert Knopp, they have returned with a more focused and ambitious sound on their follow up album Cold River. Their first release on This Charming Man Records - the Muenster based label responsible for Die Nerven, The Moth, Messer and more - while that loose and low slung spirit of Scythe. still remains, it's now strengthened by an unmistakable 70s psych rock majesty. With vintage tones and killer riffs reminiscent of early Sabbath, their new direction also takes in the boogie of Blue Cheer, ballsy strut of Deep Purple and the total ambition of Pink Floyd. A sound that doesn't shy away from its hard rock roots and at the same time doesn't stop long enough to rest on them. A more structured record than anything they've ever laid down before, Cold River's newest and most noticeable characteristic can be heard in the addition of Rene Sitte's vocals and darkened lyrics. Lysergic tales spun out over haunting grooves that never stray far from the arcane acid jams that inspired them originally and can be heard here echoing across ncient Light' and the curiously titled Shrubbery The Warlock'. There's also a distinct feeling that while the Mountain Witch of old were content to plug in and rock out, the epic guitar assaults and rhythm and doom sections of Sleepers Chant' and The Covey' give this latest incarnation a newfound purpose. One that could give the likes of Dead Meadow, Uncle Acid and former label mates Kadavar.

ORACLES - BEDROOM EYES
'Bedroom Eyes' is Oracles' first longplaying outing. It's taken from a lyric of the upbeat, sphynxian 'Thoughts Of Love On The Verge Of Sleep'. The title does a good job of sketching what Oracles embody on their debut album: examining, bemoaning and celebrating their lives and loves with all the fissures, losses, turns and joys with one dissecting and one passionate eye.

SEE THROUGH DRESSES - SEE THROUGH DRESSES
See Through Dresses released their debut self-titled LP in November of 2013. Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo (which was part of Tim Kashers latest Album "Adult Film" and did the whole US-Tour), along with drummer Nate Van Fleet, have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the 80's, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of 90's dream-pop and shoegaze. The arrangements often build as though to erupt, only to implode. There are moments when Bertuldo and Carroll sound noxious and distant, their voices doused in reverb, their guitars droning and pulsing. When the clouds look dark, See Through Dresses offer flashes of pure pop sunshine to punctuate those moments of isolation and distance. At their most hopeful, they remind us of the simplicity of longing and the eagerness that accompanies an expectation for love in a loveless culture. At their most honest, See Through Dresses portray a dull terror born of idleness, sickness, and failure. The result is a well-rounded catalogue that disillusions as it comforts and soothes as it burns by injecting the familiarity of music-gone-by with lyrics about regrettable psychologies - its a total bummer thats still fun to listen to.

SPACE CHASER - WATCH THE SKIES!
This rat pack from Berlin will blow your mind. Think of hi-tops, beer & thrashing! you haven't been caught headbangin' lately? Reminiscent of my late 80s skateboarding with D.R.I. on the walkmen. This is absolutely pure 80's thrash metal like old Agent Steel - a fast, ripping & in your face old-school attack. "From time to time modern day metal bands decide to keep the traditions alive, Space Chaser are no exception. The Thrash Metal quintet from Berlin release their premiere demo this year and it showed excellency right from the first riff, this is 80's style Thrash Metal in the vein of Anthrax and Metallica mostly, with the classic and easily detectable riffs and signature drumming as the backdrop, Space Chaser are nowhere near the Teutonic Thrash Metal style that has plagued the German metal scene for years. As long as they keep this up, they could make a name for themselves in the European metal scenes, you won't need a time travel machine to see 80's Thrash Metal, let the Space Chaser get it for you."

WARM GRAVES - SHIPS WILL COME
WARM GRAVES "is an up-and-coming sci-fi-delic 3 piece band from leipzig that evokes a surreal cosmos of dirty analog dystopian scapes. Sliding on hypnotic grids with one song bleeding into the next, the band follows pulsing rythms from heavy handed drums. Haunted vocals shout their way through droning ambience only to be swallowed by the next reverberating wave. Having just recorded their debut album ,Ships Will Come" they already headed out to play with bands like Moonface, The Soft Moon, Crystal Stilts and Efterklang."
