Prosthetic Records to Release GOJIRA Re-Issues

By popular demand, Prosthetic Records will soon issue gatefold double-LP editions of the two albums that rocketed the French progressive tech-death quartet GOJIRA from the European underground to international stardom. From Mars To Sirius and The Way Of All Flesh – two of the most acclaimed metal releases of the past decade – will be released on vinyl on August 27. Pre-orders are available now.

Selected praise for From Mars To Sirius:
* Decibel Magazine Top 10 of 2006
* “Epic…a masterpiece…9/10.” — Blabbermouth
* “One of the year’s freshest metal inventions” — L.A. Times
* Revolver Magazine #4 release of 2006

Originally issued overseas in 2005, From Mars To Sirius – released by Prosthetic in 2006, and never before available on LP in North America – was the Western Hemisphere’s formal introduction to GOJIRA. One of MetalSucks‘ Top 10 “best metal albums of the 21st Century so far,” the album was supported by U.S. tours with the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth and Amon Amarth. The gatefold 2-LP set will be available in three 180-gram variants: “Eco-Green” (600 copies), “Mars Red” (200 copies) and “Sea Blue” (200 copies), the latter two of which are mail-order exclusives.

Selected praise for The Way Of All Flesh:
* Decibel Magazine Top 15 of 2008
* Revolver Magazine #2 release of 2008
* “likely to be every bit as vital 10 years from now” – Kerrang!
* Metal Hammer Magazine #5 release of 2008

Engineered, mixed and mastered by Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Fear Factory), follow-up The Way Of All Flesh (2008) cemented GOJIRA’s status as one of metal’s most important acts. The band’s first release to crack the Billboard Top 200, the album – which features a guest appearance by Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe – was supported by tours with the likes of In Flames and All That Remains, in addition to a month touring North American arenas with Metallica. The gatefold 2-LP set marks the first time in three years that the album will be available on vinyl, and it will be offered in two new variants: 180-gram clear (500 copies), and a mail-order exclusive, standard-weight blue/white split vinyl (500 copies).

Over its 15-year history, Los Angeles-based Prosthetic Records has proudly helped to establish the careers of alumni such as Lamb of God, All That Remains, Animals As Leaders, The Acacia Strain and Kylesa, in addition to current roster heavyweights such as Skeletonwitch, Scale The Summit and Holy Grail. The label’s two GOJIRA releases are among the best-selling titles in its catalog.

 

THE OCEAN Unveil New Track

 

Pre-Orders + Studio Footage Available at metalblade.com/theocean

THE OCEAN is pleased to unveil Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams from their forthcoming new studio offering, Pelagial. Possibly their deepest and most profoundly sophisticated work to date, Pelagial is a progressive musical journey written, recorded, mixed and to-be-performed-live as one single 53-minute piece of music. Mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) at Fascination Street Studios in Orebro, Sweden, Pelagial will be released as a double CD, which includes a vocal and an instrumental version of the album and is scheduled for release on April 26/29 (Europe) and April 30 (North America/world) through Metal Blade Records.

The concept of the album is made evident in its title, Pelagial. Listeners will be further submersed as they journey with the band, beginning at the surface of the ocean and plunging through all five pelagic depth zones: epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathyalpelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic. In synch with diminishing light and increasing pressure as one dives or sinks deeper into the ocean, the album begins rather light and progressively gets heavier and slows as the band reaches the unfathomable depths of the hadopelagic zone, characterized by complete darkness and a thousandfold increased pressure as compared to surface level. What is amazing about Pelagial is that this is not some detached conceptual idea; this can actually be heard and felt while listening to the album.

The album’s fourth movement, Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams, is currently streaming at metalblade.com/theocean, where you’ll also find studio footage and preorder info.

Additionally, preorders are currently available for a very special acrylic boxset edition of Pelagial, released through Pelagic Records. These heavy acrylic boxes are available in CD and vinyl formats and contain the CD digipak vs. four vinyl records respectively, as well as an extra DVD with the Pelagial movie by Craig Murray, all of which will be “buried” underneath five thick acrylic layers, colored in different hues of blue, each layer reflecting one of the five pelagial depth zones. The layers will be silk-screen printed with additional artwork by Martin Kvamme. 350 out of 500 copies of the limited vinyl boxsets and 450 out of 1000 CD boxsets have already been sold in the first five days of starting the preorder. Claim your copy now at: http://www.theoceancollective.com/pelagial.

Pelagial Track Listing:
1. Epipelagic
2. Mesopelagic: The Uncanny
3. Bathyalpelagic I: Impasses
4. Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams

ORWELL To Re-Release EP

AVOHFASIH cover art

Wisconsin‘s ever-progressing ORWELL (http://www.facebook.com/orwellwi) are re-releasing their 2011 EP AVOHFASIH (an acronym for A View of Heaven From A Seat In Hell).

Originally, a self-released, 40-plus minute, 6-song EP; the newly formed specialty vinyl label, Threshold of Pain Records (http://www.facebook.com/ThresholdOfPainRecords), are also re-releasing efforts from Seamless and planning several splits and releases spanning the heavy music spectrum.

AVOHFASIH, produced and engineered by Steve Henningsgard of Iron Thrones at Signaturetone Recordings in La Crosse, Wisconsin, explores a much heavier, more emotionally-driven direction. From doom and sludge and acoustic meddling, to head-on metal riffing and spiraling guitar solos, AVOHFASIH marks a true evolution in ORWELL’s sound.  

Listen for yourself and grab a digital copy at the name-your-price offering via their BandCamp (http://orwellus.bandcamp.com)

The vinyl release will feature new and expanded artwork from guitarist Tim Bradley, with the record itself being on high quality 180-gram wax and limited to 250 pieces. Expect AVOHFASIH to drop on special edition vinyl Spring of 2013.  

Specific details are to be announced soon.

For updates, be sure to follow the band online on their website – www.aseatinhell.comFacebook, and Twitter.

INTEGRITY Sign To Indie Recordings

INDIE RECORDINGS are proud to announce the signing of the legendary Holy Terror cult band INTEGRITY!

Leaders of their generation and innovators of an entire music genre, INTEGRITY have announced the release of a limited edition 7″ titled Black Heksen Rise that will be included as part of the INDIE RECORDINGS 7-inch Collector’s Series. Limited to 500 copies worldwide (100 grey, 200 white, 200 black), the 7″ will be released February 8 in the U.S., Norway, Germany and Austria, and February 12 in the rest of Europe. You can pre-order your copy HERE.

The 7-inch features two remastered songs, Black Heksen Rise and VVaiting For The Sun (To Burn Your Eyes Out), both of which see the band’s trademark sound permeated by somewhat more of an obvious Japanese metal influence through raw, driving power chords; explosive solos and crazy tapping runs, and pounding mid-paced breaks with just the right amount of eerie melody.

You can check out a teaser video below:
