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".

The Voice::The Void - SUTEKH HEXEN "Become" available on vinyl

It has been a long time coming caused by numerous delays at the pressing plant but we can finally say that "Become" by SUTEKH HEXEN is now available on vinyl to purchase in our webstore!  

Originally released as a 1/4" tape reel by Auris Apothecary, "Become" centers on vortex, repetition, and inducing trance-like states.  This release serves to bridge the gap between "Behind The Throne" (Magic Bullet Records 2012) and "Monument of Decay" (Black Horizons 2013).  "Become" has been remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and is presented in HEAVY Stoughton tip-on jackets, featuring lavish metallic gold and black offset printing, and available on two colorways (gold vinyl or black vinyl).  It is adorned with brand new artwork and layout by Kevin Gan Yuen with source photography by Patricia Cram.  

SUTEKH HEXEN will be performing at this years Stella Natura Festival along with Ash Borer, Hell, Amber Asylum, Loss, Kinit Her and tons of other amazing acts.

The Devil Is In The Details

A few quick updates on the state of King Of The Monsters' current and future endeavors.

The AGARTTHA "A Water Which Does Not Wet Hands" LP is completed and available for order at the KOTM webstore.  The limited purple vinyl copies are going fast.

This release has been receiving a lot of really positive feedback and we could not agree more.  It had been an honor to work on this project and we could not be happier with its outcome.

Here is a video for "Chymische Hochzeit" from the album for you to enjoy:

Agarttha - Chymische Hochzeit from Agarttha on Vimeo.

 The SERVILE SECT "Glowing" 10" is also out now and available for sale in the webstore. The record features three new tracks of blackened sci-fi soundscapes and packaged with cover/insert design by Mike Bjella from Gog/Sounds Of Battle And Souvenir Collecting.  This in our opinion is some of the best SS material to date.

Expect three more releases from SS to follow later this year/early next.

After several delays with vinyl version of "Become" by SUTEKH HEXEN, it seems like we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We are told the vinyl will ship to us shortly and we will begin taking preorders very soon including a few special "die hard" versions.  Details forthcoming.

The new UZALA album "Tales Of Blood & Fire" is also at the pressing plant.  Test presses should arrive next week and we hope to have the whole project completed by the end of August.  There will be a CD version for this as well as the vinyl versions (two different limited colorways as well as standard black).
 More details to follow.

If you live on the West Coast be sure to go see them live this August.

8/11 - SAN FRANCISCO @ Hemlock w/ Laudanum, Bottom Feeder
8/12 - OAKLAND @ Eli's Mile High w/Augurs, Cardinal Wyrm
8/13 - OAKLAND @ Oakland Metro Operahouse w/ VHOL, Scolex
8/14 - ARCATA @ TBA
8/15 - EUGENE @ TBA
8/16 - SEATTLE @ Highline w/ VHOL, Bone Sickness, Brain Scraper

The split LP between SUFFERING LUNA and SUFFER THE STORM is being mastered now.  More details forthcoming.  In the meantime check out the SUFFERING LUNA interview done by Todd from Dystopia/Mange that appears in issue #64 of Profane Existence HERE

We are also proud to announce upcoming releases by BLOOD BRIGHT STARSON OF MAN, ABDUCTION and LUSITANIA along with the long talked about ENEWETAK discography, the UZALA reissue of the s/t LP and the 'Cataract' single and a few others that we can't let out of the bag quite yet.

AGARTTHA "A Water Which Does Not Wet Hands" LP

We are very excited to announce that the AGARTTHA LP is nearing completion! The covers, insert, and posters are printed and the tests are en route to the Italy for inspection. If all goes as scheduled the record should be available in mid-April. Preorders are now being taken HERE with the first 100 orders receiving limited purple colored vinyl! This is one of favorite releases to date on the label and hope you agree.

To tide you over read the stunning review and stream a track at one of our favorite sites The Inarguable.

"The magnitude of this music will not fully hit you at first, but rather when you least expect it, manifesting as a slow frown on a sunny day or a late night bout of racing thoughts. There is terror in beauty. There is black pitch within the flame...." -The Inarguable
