Atala - Labyrinth of Ashmedai (LP)
The wait for Atala's upcoming album is coming to an end. "Labyrinth of Ashmedai" will be in stores January 26th via Salt of the Earth Records. The heavy Southern California trio has garnered massive attention and momentum due to their announcements on the Salt of the Earth roster and the 2017 Roadburn Festival. The band has had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as Pallbearer, Baroness, Chelsea Wolfe, The Obsessed, Coven, 16, Coliseum, Green Jelly and many more. This is the band's third album. Stylistically, The Obelisk says the band's new material is "among their most aggressive and lumbering works to date. On the other hand,"completely catchy, doomy desert rock" is how Pure Grain Audio describes Atala. "Labyrinth of Ashmedai" features the band's hit 'Death's Dark Tomb.' Loudwire deems that it moves the listener "from hazy, suspended riffs to undulating waves of paranoia."

Dope Feat Julian Cope - Dee Dee Ramone Story (White) (LP)
Limited edition of only 500 copies pressed on white vinyl
Dope's obscure cassette-only album is now available vinyl! The LP contains two side-long tracks (each over 20 minutes), with the A-side being a story about 21st century gender bending and the second side appropriating the sentiments of John Dryden's epic poem from 1681, 'Absalom & Ahitophel'.
Heldon - 1976-1979 (IMPORT) (Color) (3LP)
Limited edition box set. Limited to only 300 copies on clear yellow, bottle green and electric blue vinyl.
A totally vertiginous experience, this ensemble consisting of 'Un Rêve Sans Conséquence Spéciale' (1976), 'Interface' (1977) and 'Stand By' (1979) can be seen as the sonic climax to Heldon's oeuvre. This Everest of electronic music is completed by a rare Richard Dunn single released on RCA at the same period, making this a must-have box set for any self-respecting collector!
Heldon - Heldon. 6. Interface. (IMPORT) (Swamp Green) (LP)
Limited to 700 copies on swamp green vinyl.
Like its predecessor 'Un Rêve Sans Conséquence Spéciale', and then 'Stand By', which followed, 'Interface', the second album of the "trilogy" recorded at studios Davout, represents a sonic culmination, even a climax. Its violence coming from the machines and delving into notions of repetition and scansion, prefigured a lot of the music that was to follow, whether it be electro and industrial or post-rock and noise. It goes without saying: seminal and always innovative! Originally released in 1977.
Low Orbit - Space Cake (IMPORT) (LP)
'Spacecake' is a great album that takes its riffs from the proto-metal and heavy psych of the '70s, and artfully adds the sheer downtuned density of doom in order to produce something special.
