VHOL – Complete Work On New Album

Singular, unique sounding West Coast metal band VHOL have completed work on their new album “Deeper Than Sky”.

Following their acclaimed self-titled debut from 2013, “Deeper Than Sky” sees the VHOL collective of vocalist Mike Scheidt (YOB), guitarist John Cobbett (Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-Ludicra), bassist Sigrid Sheie (Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-Amber Asylum), and drummer Aesop Dekker (Agalloch/Worm Ouroboros/ex-Ludicra) create a psychedelic speed/prog/trad metal album that takes the band’s sonic voraciousness to a more exciting and creative realm. Recorded and mixed in The Bay Area’s Light Rail Studios in a more traditional old-school manner, “Deeper Than Sky” sees VHOL deliver a warmer, fuller,…

VHOL – Complete Work On Debut Album

VHOL, the new group comprised of vocalist Mike Scheidt, guitarist John Cobbett, drummer Aesop Dekker, and bassist Sigrid Sheie, have completed work on their self-titled debut album.  One that has been deemed as one of the most anticipated metal albums of the year.  Anticipated out of the curiosity of what VHOL is going to sound like and the pedigree at the band’s disposal with the members’ respective repertoires already at hand.

Initially formed by Cobbett and Dekker to create music together again post-LUDICRA fallout, VHOL would take shape quickly.  When Cobbett and Dekker were thinking of a…

WORM OUROBOROS – Complete Work On New Album

Bay Area chamber rock trio WORM OUROBOROS have completed work on their sophomore album “Come The Thaw”, the anticipated follow-up to their eponymous debut.

Crafting a much darker, more delicate, intricate and meticulously constructed album that raises the bar on the trio’s songwriting, “Come The Thaw” (which now features drummer Aesop Dekker of Agalloch/Ludicra fame) is a musical observation that serves its purpose as the soundtrack to modern day tragedy and longing.  A more serene and haunting offering than the debut, “Come The Thaw” is a chilling and painful overbearing glimpse to the rite of finality, one which unravels…


We are proud to announce that the latest addition to our repertoire is the Pacific Northwest’s long-running doom metal band, WITCH MOUNTAIN.

Formed in 1997, Portland’s original doom band helped forge a scene that is now legendary worldwide.  They released their now out-of-print debut album “…Come The Mountain” in 2001 and played continuously on the live circuit (between 1998 and 2003) alongside such respected bands as High On Fire, Clutch, Electric Wizard, Goatsnake, Acid King, Orange Goblin, Isis, YOB, and Agalloch.

Following 2003 WITCH MOUNTAIN laid mostly dormant, that is until 2009 when vocalist Uta Plotkin was enlisted…

WOLVHAMMER – Complete New Album

American blackened crust/sludge scumbag metal band WOLVHAMMER, have completed work on their follow-up to last year’s “Black Marketeers Of WWIII” debut, entitled “The Obsidian Plains”.

With already a decent pedigree within the U.S. underground black metal scene that involves such likeminded heathens as Nachtmystium, Cobalt, Ludicra (RIP), Withered etc. WOLVHAMMER are set to elevate their pillaging to a whole new level with “The Obsidian Plains”.

Known for combining such genres as black metal (of the Darkthrone, Craft, old Celtic Frost/Hellhammer vibe), punk, crust, doom and epic blackened-like sludge, with “The Obsidian Plains” (which was produced and recorded by Sanford Parker)…
