COWARDS «Rise To Infamy» 12"LP up for preorder and free download 15 Dec 2014

The second full-length from COWARDS is now up for preorder and free download! Head over to The Drone for an exclusive full stream of the record.

The record comes on 180 gram vinyl (150x ultraclear & 350x black) and is housed in a heavy jacket with spot UV varnish. Merch printed by Useless Merch on Gildan Heavy Weight shirts. An high-quality download (with complete artwork) is also available from our Bandcamp page. All orders will ship around February 9th.

"Parisian quintet, COWARDS, has become an unrelenting force since their inception in 2012, imposing their ruthless blend of metallic hardcore and sludge through several vinyl releases to date, and having crushed live audiences all across Europe. Having only grown stronger with every step of their brutal journey so far, the band will now unload their second album, Rise To Infamy. These ten tracks stand up as their most cohesive work, brutally combining the heritage of Holy Terror/H8000 inspired-hardcore with devastating sludge and black metal savagery. Carrying a deep, oppressive urban coldness behind their spectacularly crushing wall of sound, the level of aggression spilled on Rise To Infamy is difficult to endure. Everything has been managed to inflict maximum aural damage; once again recorded by Francis Caste at Sainte Marthe Studio (Arkhon Infaustus, Eibon, Kickback) as with their previous output, the band's monstrous tones sounds colder and more massive than ever. This is nothing but a monument of down-to-earth, unvarnished violence, punishing from start to finish."


DEATH ENGINE «Mud» 12"LP/CD out March 2nd on Throatruiner Records & Apocaplexy Records 15 Dec 2014

We are proud to announce the forthcoming release of DEATH ENGINE's debut album «Mud». The album is due out March 2nd on 180 gram vinyl and CD via Throatruiner Records and Apocaplexy Records - artwork by Hugues Pzzl. Watch the band's music video for "Still" below.

"Following the release of their abrasive debut EP «Amen», DEATH ENGINE made a brutal entrance in 2013 with a couple of European tours – a string of infernal outbreaks that have little in common with your average live show. The now four-piece from Lorient, France spent most of 2014 working on their debut album «Mud», which was once again recorded by Amaury Sauvé at La Senelle and mastered by Sylvain Biguet. 

Behind their ascetic, less-is-more work ethic, DEATH ENGINE's sound remains evasive – oscillating between dark, desperate noise rock and metallic downpours of petrifying violence, bleak shoegazing guitar work and gigantic industrial dirges, cathartic climaxes and merciless tribal-ritual rhythms that could last forever. «Mud» features seven new tracks that deliver the coup de grâce, exploring new fields while still pushing the band’s trademark visceral tension to unreachable highs."
