Numbered Days - UNRUH reunion and discography


And we thought it would never happen but it is.  With the upcoming discography set to come out early next year, UNRUH will be doing a one-time reunion show to celebrate its release.  Do not miss your chance to see them live if you can.  Their live shows were some of the most chaotic and brutal we have ever witnessed.  As for the discography, we will have more details soon but it will be a triple LP box set and will called "Tomb".  Prepare yourselves.

Lunar Madness - BLOOD BRIGHT STAR / LUSITANIA / GATECREEPER


The BLOOD BRIGHT STAR album, "The Silver Head", is coming very soon! Most of the pieces are in hand and we will be taking preorders starting August 1st (to start shipping August 12th). We will update you some more shortly on this much anticipated release.


We also just sent off to press the LUSITANIA album. A filthy BM assault on your ears. We are hoping to have this out in early September. 




And finally, we are pleased to announce that we will be pressing the GATECREEPER's demo on vinyl! This has also been sent off to press and expected to be completed in early September.

PS Order placed July 25-31 will not be shipped until August 1 as I will be doing some traveling. Your patience is appreciated.

GOG s/t and SUFFERING LUNA with THE ASTRONAUT KING / SUFFER THE STORM split

2013 was a busy year for KOTM.  We released records for UZALA, SUTEKH HEXEN, AGARTTHA, and SEVILE SECT to name a few.  So it is understandable that we have been a bit slow to get 2014 rolling but the train is finally on the tracks we are moving forward full steam.  Along with the SON OF MAN seven inch we just released a few weeks ago, we are pleased to announce two new releases out soon - GOG s/t LP and SUFFERING LUNA with THE ASTRONAUT KING / SUFFER THE STORM split LP!!!  Both will begin shipping June 30th. 



GOG - s/t LP
Previous efforts have been described as "abstract avant blackness" and "blown out black-bliss", but what GOG conveys here is far more tense and aggressive than anything we have heard prior.  On "s/t", GOG (Mike Bjella of Unruh and Wellington) explores the transformation and evolution of oneself, conveying the twisting and painfully primal cycles of it.  
Features guest vocals by Francesca Marongiu (Agarttha), and drums by Josh Bodnar.
Limited to 300 copies (150 on red with black swirl vinyl  / 
150 on black vinyl) 

Comes with a digital download card. 


SUFFERING LUNA with THE ASTRONAUT KING / SUFFER THE STORM split LP 
Previous Suffering Luna and The Astronaut King team up for a cross country collaboration to bring you the feral offering "Most High" which walks the line between mammoth-sized doom and psychotic noise, creating an almost trance-like listening experience.  Fans Of early Cavity, Grief, and 16 will be sure to devour this potent piece of noise inspired psych-doom.  

Suffer The Storm’s twenty-two minute droning funeral hymn, “Squalor,” takes the listener on an unforgiving trip to the deepest depths of human filth, despair and misanthropy. Guttural death metal-esque vocals pave the way for this absolutely devastating slab of doom. Samples and various atmospherics help to enhance the mood of grim foreboding, and bring the listener closer to the edge of the abyss. Fans of Winter and Moss will not be disappointed. 
PRESSING DETAILS 
95 gold/white vinyl (pictured) 
100 white vinyl 
313 black vinyl

Both are available now at the KOTM WEBSTORE along with tons of distro items and be sure to check out out our "sale" section!

Burn The Witch! SON OF MAN record preorder info


Son of Man have returned with four scathing tracks of black-metal inspired hardcore with the “Burn the Witch” 7” (KOTM 47). Also mixing elements of thrash, hardcore, and punk, the folks in Son of Man have morbidly constructed an air of dread, despair, abject nihilism and skull-crushing barbarism. Title track “Burn the Witch” seems bent on destruction within the first few seconds, while “Last Cries of the Dead” pounds along at the same maniacal pace. Standout track “Chiroptophobia” gets off to a blistering start, only to slow to a doomed-out dirge half-way through. The EP was recorded by Alex Estrada at The Earth Capital Studios (Nails, Touche Amore, Xibalba) during the winter months of 2012 / 2013.
Formed in 2006 by John Spence and Mike Browne in Southern California, Son of Man self-released their debut S/T 7” back in 2010, that featured artwork by the enigmatic Dwid Hellion. The band refuse to play live, opting instead to play their “end of the world” anthems in undisclosed “bunkers” across Southern California

THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. 
WE EXPECT TO START SHIPPING THESE OUT AROUND MAY 7 IF EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED.

WHAT'S HAPPENING?


We're not very good at keeping up with the blog are we?  Sorry about that.
Here's what has been happening at KOTM...

1) UZALA returned safe and sound from their US tour and report that they had a great time.  Thanks to all who came out and helped them out.  We have vinyl and CD copies of "Tales Of Blood & Fire" in the webstore and the band has some left over merch from on their site here.  We will begin working on the reissue of the s/t album and "Cataract" 12" shortly so stay tuned for info regarding that.

2)   SUTEKH HEXEN released "Monument Of Decay" on Black Horizons shortly after "Become" came out.  We will have copies up in the webstore by the end of the week (as well as tons of other stuff).  A very small amount of limited gold vinyl versions of "Become" are left as well.  

3) SUFFERING LUNA / SUFFER THE STORM split has been mastered and we are just waiting on artwork.  Expect this beast to see the light of day before the years end.

4) BLOOD BRIGHT STAR recently released a split 7" with High Aura'd on Anti-Matter Records (we have copies and will be adding this to webstore update this week).  Their album for KOTM is being mastered and will most likely be out late 2013/early 2014.

5) ENEWETAK discography is still going to happen (hopefully out in mid-2014) and we are pleased to announce that we will also be releasing the discography for one of the bands that helped start it all, UNRUH (!!!), sometime in 2014 as well.

6) Other upcoming releases for early 2014 will be SON OF MAN second 7" and LUSITANIA 12".
