All tapes come with a digitalcode.
Let’s take a final deep breath before diving head first into the abyssal world of J.H., the artist behind SHADES OF DEEP WATER. Just be there, when the first guitarsounds fill your room – we’re taken out of this world and pushed under water just to realize how futile existence is. Looking up, there’s only the full moon shining above the still surface, while we slowly drift away with eyes wide open, carried by the melodies. Deeper and deeper down we are drawn into the world of SHADES OF DEEP WATER – with a smile on our faces, because this is music for those connoisseurs who are able to stop and inhale every note.

Powerful and painful are the words with which the sounds of Wijsgeer & Narreman, the first life signs of the Dutch LASTER, are illustrated best. Looping lamentation and genuine gloom brought to life by songs which leave the standard of DSBM far behind. Floating riffs, melancholic and full of grace, rolling drums and pressing lyrics tell stories about pain that was lived through and artistic musicianship. This music’s pathos aspirated by an energy standing up again and again to fade within monotonous doubt and to indulge in blind despair. LASTER however is no whiny band of wimps, but emotional, true Black Metal who are worth believing in. For fans of URFAUST and AUSTERE. Limited to 100.

FATES WARNING / OSI guitarist Jim Matheos debuts with his ambient instrumental rock project TUESDAY THE SKY which invites you do discover so far untraveled dimensions of his artistic cosmos! “With this kind of music, it’s a lot about creating a mood and letting that sink in and develop over long periods of time, as opposed to the more frenetic format of most prog music”, explains Matheos. Taking cues from artists like Brian Eno, Boards Of Canada, Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky, he explores expansive textures and ambient electronica, as well as some of the most colossal riffs he has ever produced. The album also features the talents of God Is An Astronaut’s drummer Lloyd Hanney, who provides a rhythmic backbone that is at once punchy, precise and restrained when necessary. Other guests include long-time OSI collaborator and former Dream Theater member Kevin Moore who plays keys on two songs, and Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William, Lotte Kestner) who provides ethereal vocals (of the non-verbal kind) on two other songs. The result is an ethereal musical journey further affirming Matheos’ status as one of the most diverse and inspired rock musicians.
