IPC45 FANTOMAS delirium cordia  CD 00 Ipecac rock 20.10.03
Third album for the legendary US quartett Fantomas, which gathers
several rock heroes : Mike Patton on vocals (Faith no more, Tomahawk,
Mr Bungle), Buzz Osbourne on guitars (Melvins), Trevor Dunn on bass
(Mr Bungle, John Zorn) and Dave Lombardo on drums. No radiophonic
stuff here, the sound experimentations are even crazier than what
Fantomas had used us to. Third album, after the now (in)famous
"almenza al mundo" and "director's cut". Celebrate !

      For fans of: Mike Patton, Mr Bungle, Melvins

RR6566 EXHUMED anatomy is destiny  CD 00 Relapse metal sept03
This month death metal big wrench ! Incorporating metal's classic
elements with the paramount components of modern extreme death metal,
EXHUMED has delivered the ultimate death sentence with Anatomy is
Destiny. More involved and intricate than past efforts -- with slower
and heavier sections blended into the band's patented "Gore Metal"
-- Anatomy is Destiny proves EXHUMED to be the masters of their trade.
Death-defying production by Neil Kernon (JUDAS PRIEST, CANNIBAL
CORPSE, NEVERMORE) perfectly compliments EXHUMED's aggressive
austerity and evolving technicality.

      For fans of: Morbid Angel, Aborted, Cannibal Corpse

PALE005 CHOKEBORE a part from life  CD 00 Pale Blue rock 15.09.03
Chokebore are among the oldest indie Amercian rock banks. They used to
tour 10 months a year, so the need for a live album has finally become
obvious. Named "a part from life", that 15-tracks album has been
recorded in 2002, and features songs from the whole Chokebore career,
which is now 10 years old and counts 5 studio albums. "A part from
life" contains also an unreleased video track of Ciao L.A.

      For fans of: Chokebore

OPCD148 INHUME in for the kill  CD/LP 00/53 Osmose death-metal

INHUME already have a solid reputation in the underground death-metal
scene, and were featured on Relapse "dutch assault compilation"
(2003). "In for the kill" is their second album, and the sound is
clearly on the level of the biggest grindcore productions.

      For fans of: early Napalm Death, Carcass, Terrorizer,
      Regurgitate

CDHOLE060 MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES  jacknife to a swan CD 00 Golf
ska/punk 15.09.03
Since 1986 they have been playing their unique style of "Ska-Core",
from their first release "Devil's Night Out” in 1990 to their 7th
album "A Jackknife To A Swan", The Bosstones have continued to stay
true to their roots. Led by the "growl" of front man Dick Barrett
these eight individuals have been everywhere and done everything.

BAX9007 ODDITIES scenic route CD 00/53 Battleaxe hip-hop 15.09.03
"The scenic route", debut family album for the Oddities, is a
masterful orchestration of hip-hop music. Guest appearances by
gold-selling artist Esthero (Black Eyed Peas, Dan the Automator)
and Ishkan (City Planners). "The scenic route" delivers highly
intelligent, lightning fast rhymes over amazing production, and
will cement the ODDITIES as a truly progressive rap collective.

POSH049 LUCIFERION the apostate  CD 00 Ipecac death-metal 22.09.03
Finally, after almost 8 years of hiatus, LUCIFERION are back with a
monster of an album. "The Apostate” reveals a major musical
progression from the band who released "Demonication (the manifest)”
album in 1996. The new songs display a great deal of darkness and
intensity packed with unreal guitar solos and mesmerizing melodies.
It´s still wicked death metal, but with a fresh execution and a very
extreme atmosphere. LUCIFERION feature the main LOST HORIZON
songwriter Wojtek Lisicki and DARK TRANQUILLITY bass player Mikael
Nicklasson.

      For fans of: melodic death-metal

ATHOME006 GUEULES DE BOIS  gonflés à bloc CD 00 Ipecac musette

Fresh !

      For fans of: VRP, Wampas

ATHOME005 SLEEPPERS interaction CD 00 At(h)ome rock / metal 22.09.03
SLEEPPERS can be held as one of France's rare rock bands that have
crossed 12 years of career without any compromise. Close to the
spirit of Portobello Bones, Tantrum or Basement, Sleeppers have gone
their own way, from their underground debut on Vicious Circle rec.
to that new awesome 5th album on At(h)ome Records (Wunjo, Seven Hate,
Aqme....). Still raw and ferocious, "interaction" is the heavy,
intense and definitive follow-up to "cut off..."; their last bunch
to date.

      For fans of: Unsane, Neurosis, Tantrum

FIFTY FOOT COMBO  caffeine CD 00 Drunkabilly surf music 15.09.03
