Record of the Week for August 21st, 2015

Get ready, because we have an extra long RECORD OF THE WEEK blog for your viewing pleasure!
 
While the untangling of duality is hardly a new artistic exercise, such rich questioning is rarely attempted in the form of a six song EP, until now! DEMONS is here with their newest work, “Great Dismal” in an absolutely SPECTACULAR package put together by none other than SPARTAN RECORDS! Decidedly heavier and more aggressive than previous projects, DEMONS took stylistic cues from the likes of many influential bands that have shaped them, and with decidedly not scary artwork. This limited run has reverse board jacket and printed insert, but the real magic is in the silk screening on the B side of the record! Visible on both sides for the ‘Ultra Clear’ version are cats, and a different silk screen and labels for the Half-N-Half version. Better hope that SPARTAN isn’t already sold out!!!

NUCLEAR WAR NOW! has you covered with either a standard ‘Black’ disc, much more limited ‘Beer’ colored version, and the almost non existant ‘Bronze’ version.

“Tales from the Deadside” is A SOUND OF THUNDER’S fifth full-length album.  The sweeping concept album marks the band’s first collaboration with comic book publisher VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT, telling the story of the Shadowman in 10 songs that encapsulate the iconic hero’s origin, triumphs and tragedies.  The Shadowman’s story is not your typical crime-busting yarn; it takes a dark psychological turn that carries real emotional weight and fits perfectly with A SOUND OF THUNDER’S melodies, textures, and dynamic range. This double LP that comes in either solid Blue or Blue and White AsideBside is also accompanied by a 7 inch picture disc. What more could you ask for?

    With a special one off pressing, GOOD FIGHT MUSIC is bringing you a split between THE BANNER and OLD WOUNDS! These two hardcore bands are so close, it just made sense to do a limited run of 7”s in a ‘Milky Clear’ and ‘Blood Red’ splattered color.  The two THE BANNER songs were originally supposed to be on their last LP “Greying” but they couldn’t fit time wise on the vinyl. The two OLD WOUNDS songs are a re-recorded version of a song called “It Can’t Rain All The Time” and a demo version of “The Secret Song At The Center Of The World” that is on their new LP “The Suffering Spirit”. If you don’t catch THE BANNER at their upcoming shows or OLD WOUNDS on their current tour, GOOD FIGHT has you covered!

A short but sweet RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog this this time. Here we go!

WORSHIP is a band that started a couple years ago in Salinas, CA, destined to play louder and more aggressive than anything else the band members had played before.

They have a show coming up in SF in July, but until then, hit up the band’s sites and get yourself either a solid ‘Beer’ colored disc, a ‘Swamp Green’ with ‘White’ haze version, or the super limited ‘Gold’ and ‘Black’ AsideBside…
