New arrivals from Signal Rex, Night Rhythms and Sentient Ruin up in the webstore. Four titles from our first order from Portugese label SIGNAL REX, showcasing raw and psychedelic black metal from Iceland (NORNAHETTA, ENDALOK) as well as dark ambient projects from both Iceland and Australia (NYIÞ / OLD BURIAL TEMPLE). If you are familiar with the recent wave of interest in Icelandic black metal you understand the importance of these recordings / projects and we are very happy to have / provide access to them domestically. Short run high quality releases from NIGHT RHYTHMS RECORDINGS highlight INCINERATED (Mortician worshipping death metal minus the samples and with the drum machine replaced by INTERNAL ROT drummer Christoph Winkler) and SYRICTUS (Solo death metal project from Erik Steinglen of Half Gorilla / Ara / Northless). Sentient Ruin continue to forge a path into avant-death and blackened sludge with releases by NOVAE MILITIA (French avant-death akin to Deathspell Omega) and Salem, OR based HELL (Scathing blackened doom). Fucking prime additions to the disgusting bleak end of the audio spectrum and all HIGHLY recommended.

Edit: Due to a shipping error, we did not get copies of the LJAIN lp.
