Believer/Law ‎– Foxhole Prayers/The Task At Hand

Believer/Law ‎– Foxhole Prayers/The Task At Hand

A short 10 minute industrial techno cassingle. The industrial-esque vocals are a little cheesy yet fitting. I believe this was on the most recent massively hyped Youth Attack update and sold out.

Uniform Fasces ‎– Strength Through Feeling Nothing

Uniform Fasces ‎– Strength Through Feeling Nothing

Very harsh industrial/noise. These recordings are dense and heavily distorted. Rhythmic, driving, destruction.

Fields of Rape ‎– War In The Homeland

Fields of Rape ‎– War In The Homeland

Full on assault of extremely raw black metal. Clocking in at around 6 minutes, these 3 studio recordings and 2 live recordings are no frills, get-to-the-point "ragers".

Black Church - Heaven's Temple Fail To Rise

Black Church - Heaven's Temple Fail To Rise

Another amazing J Wood project. It literally sounds like JW on Bleak Environment, that's the best explanation I can give that accurately describes this. Very raw and dronelike release. The art on the insert is so on point too. Bleak Environment once again sets the bar very high.

"The moon casts no reflection. The still night shivers as I call out in darkness. The weathered stone splinters and my knees meet with moss."

Contrepoison ‎– The Thunders Which Collide

Contrepoison ‎– The Thunders Which Collide

Dense electronic music from the man behind Sans Issue. Couldn't find this online yet so uploaded it for all of your listening pleasures.

Thanatos Glare ‎– I

Thanatos Glare ‎– I

So as you can see I went crazy with posting Fallow Field releases today. I had these on my computer for a while and was waiting for proper tracklists to be released. All are very solid and I definitely suggest downloading and seeking out all of them if you don't already own them.

Raw and dense noisey BM from Ryan Lowry.

Axnaar ‎– Unbanished Evil

Axnaar ‎– Unbanished Evil

Another one man BM project, this of Gareth of Sump. Very raw, very stomping. What you'd expect from one half of Sump. Highly recommended.

Sanctuary - III

Sanctuary - III

Holy hell. The first two demos of this project were pretty decent but this blows them both out of the water. The one man Sanctuary brings you a full on assault of very raw black metal and noise. This is definitely one of the best things that Fallow Field has put out, and that speaks a lot.

House of Apparition - Spectre Tape

House of Apparition - Spectre Tape

Why hasn't anyone else ripped this yet? It was brought to my attention that this hasn't reached the internet yet, which is nuts because this is a great release that anyone who has viewed this blog would appreciate. I got the Down & Out fanzine with an interview with HoA and he said that there is going to be a 12" release on a sister label of Video Disease in the next few months! The questions in this zine are absolutely ridiculous, I could hardly read it because it's so cheesy, but it had interviews with Torture Chain, Black Cilice, Sanctuary, occult leader Jason Wood, and came with a tape of HoA material. Well, I'm rambling but you should download this.

Blistering USBM on the mighty Fallow Field.

Rhinocervs 14

Unknown Artist - Untitled (RH-14)

Some of the best material to come out on Rhinocervs. I found 12 & 13 to be fairly lackluster but this brings Rhinocervs back as one of the leaders in USBM. Raw death metal influenced black metal.

Material Sequence - Residual Grid

Material Sequence - Residual Grid

Noisey industrial techno. Is this becoming a trend? Vatican Shadow getting reviewed on Pitchfork? I don't know how I feel about that but I can assure you that this is the "real deal".

Circle Of Ouroborus ‎– Abrahadabra

Circle Of Ouroborus ‎– Abrahadabra

The newest output from Finnish duo Circle Of Ouroborus. This was said to be recorded around the same time as Eleven Fingers and is in the same style as that. I can't believe how much music this bands puts out and it's all very high quality. A little on the pricey side due to importing from Finland but if you find the opportunity to get this I strongly encourage you to do so.

Tollund Men

Tollund Men - Tour 2012, single

"Post-post synth pop." Very lo-fi and gritty. "Door" is the 7". The "Looking For Love" cassette has a flower in it. The tour tape has some songs that are re-recorded. Bleak Environment as a label are putting out some amazing releases, please check them out and support.

Looking For Love b/w Chains Of Desire: http://www.mediafire.com/?w9mz4b3cixmc5jf

Amofas - Blood Like Fire

Amofas - Blood Like Fire

I went to San Francisco around a week ago and randomly saw an Amoeba and had to walk in. I found this in the dollar bin! I also got a Sutekh Hexen 7" for like $2. Anyways, member of Bone Awl. Need I say more? Highly sought over release, find this in a distro ASAP!

Deathcircle - In These Depths of Madness We Proclaim Thy Name

Deathcircle - In These Depths of Madness We Proclaim Thy Name
Cocainacopia (RIP)

A very raw doom-like project from the Black Plague Circle. Cocainacopia only made a few of these and disappeared so I couldn't really find too much info on this.

NASA Space Universe - NSU

Veld - Collection

Veld - Collection

I have no idea why this band isn't talked about more. Last time I checked they weren't even on discogs! What gives!? This is a compilation of everything they've released so far. Once I ordered one of their first demos limited to some stupid number and they shipped it roughly 1 mile to me when they were based in Boston. Member(s?) runs PRGNT Records and just opened up a record store in Western MA called Damage Records. That is an assumption so I might be wrong, either way support a great label.

Sheep - Demo I

Sheep - Demo I

I think this is the same guy who does House Of Apparition but who the fuck knows. Last time I assumed this was a Black Beasts project and was wrong. Anyways, this is on Fallow Field so you know it's good.

Mirror To Mirror - Throw Away The Key

Mirror To Mirror - Throw Away The Key

Drone from Alex Twomey who runs the label Jugular Forest. Low end heavy melodies. There's still a door but trash belongs in the back.

The Rita, NFW & Christian Nicolay - Atlantis

The Rita, NFW & Christian Nicolay - Atlantis

A split between The Rita & NFW and Christian Nicolay. The two tapes, Water and Fire, are meant to be played at the same time. You can still order this from Satan's Din so don't miss out on this great release.

Horrid Cross - Live Exorcism

Live recording of Horrid Cross, no explanation needed.

Order Of Nine Angels - Grand High Climax


Order Of Nine Angels - Grand High Climax

Sometimes I think someone has Jason Wood locked up in a basement and makes him write black metal riffs and make noise all day. Have you seen this photo of a box of tapes with Grinning Death's Head riffs on them? Calm down, dude.

Anyways, great wall of noise tape imported from Spanish label Angoisse. Enjoy!

Kallathon / Volahn - Disequilibrium Of The Ecliptic Plane


Kallathon / Volahn - Disequilibrium Of The Ecliptic Plane
Crep├║sculo Negro

Another highly awaited split from the Black Twilight Circle. Do I even need to tell you how good this is? Buy this when CN does a full release.

Sanctuary - Demo

Sanctuary - Demo
self released

Harsh USBM. There was another rip of this floating around but I wasn't too keen on the quality, I like my rip a little better. Regardless, I'm interested to see more output from this band, great demo.

Absum / Odz Manouk split

Absum / Odz Manouk split

Rhinocervs has quickly become my favorite label. All of their releases are top notch and this is no different. Absum makes fantastic funeral doom while Odz Manouk is one of the best current names in black metal, I'll stand by that statement. If you have heard their previous material then you know what these artists are capable of, this release is no different. I would call this a must download. Buy this when it comes out.

This is just a test press so the sound quality is a little off sometimes. There were a few pops and such that I tried to make less obvious. Rest assured that when the final product is released it will be great quality.
