Ok, I am hoping to give some realistic expectations on what is in store for the label and some of the bands that I am involved in. I've been getting emails on stuff, so hopefully this helps!
Gasmask Terrör's excellent new 12", Black Sun/Fake Gold is almost ready. It is a split release with the French label, I Feel Good. I am really looking forward to this, the tracks are fucking mean, more along the lines of their 'Architects Of Death' E.P.
The Nukkehammer: Future Of Siberia cassette is finally going to see the light of day, it will be a split release between Solar Funeral and Life Rot. After this, look out for some vinyl to litter the planet. Nukkehammer is also planning on doing some shows this year, including the Varning From Montreal festival. I will post these up once they are finalized.
Vile Gash have plans to record for a 12" and 7" single at some point soon. The single will come first. There has also been talk about playing some West coast U.S. shows in 2011.
The Paralzyer 12" has been on hold for a little while now, and instead of being a one sided 12", it will also include a new recording on the other side. The band is broken up, so hopefully they keep with the plan and the recording happens later this year. The band did release the Counting Catastrophe recording in a nice, digipack CD format, so pick that up from me or the band if interested.
The early 2000s Portland band, Midnight, have found the lost 2nd recording, so this means that the 12" will actually happen! For those of you that have the demo recording, you know that this deserves vinyl treatment, I am happy to say that it looks like it will be on its way. The 12" will have their great demo and the 2nd recording. Your guess is as good as mine as to when this will come to fuition, I'm hoping sometime soon. Fingers crossed.
I was orginally planning on doing an E.P. with Columbus's premier noise-core group, Penis Geyser. That has now morphed into a split 7" with Baltimore/D.C.'s Lotus Fucker. Double the pleasure! The plan is to get this monster going later this year. This will be a split release with Dan from LF's label.
Black Dove has yet to complete the recording for 2 upcoming 7"s. The music is done, we just need to get the vocals ripped out of our throats. It's a bit of a departure from the 12", but we're happy with how everything is turning out so far. It's hard to say what is actually different about it...it just is. In other Black Dove news, Carter (drummer) and Dascha have unleashed their mutant spawn unto the blackened Earth (they had a baby). I wish the best of luck to them and their little Henry Gherman Gilles!
Lastly, watch out for a demo tape from Silo to appear soon, I guess this band is like a mid-way point between Black Dove and Nukkehammer with some Bathory riffs?
