    Runners In The Nerved World


    Produced by Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Band of Horses, Shins)


    LP Contains CD Of Full Album


    Growing up is weird. Very few of us ever end up doing that thing for a living that we imagined we might when we
    were kids. Even fewer end up doing the same thing for the rest of our lives that we were doing as teenagers, even if
    that thing happens to be making music with our friends. In the case of The Sidekicks, a teenage affinity for playing
    propulsive punk rock somehow, against all odds, managed to turn into a full-time life pursuit. After nearly a decade
    of making noisy rock music, releasing albums on tiny local labels, and incubating in the Cleveland scene, The Sidekicks
    are ready to meet the waiting world with their Epitaph debut Runners in the Nerved World.


    For the recording of Runners in the Nerved World the band- Steve Ciolek (Vocals & Guitar), Matt Climer (Drums),
    and Ryan Starinsky (Bass)-decamped to Seattle to work with famed indie-rock producer Phil Ek, a pairing that
    proved to be something of a dream come true for Ciolek. The results, on tracks like "The Kid Who Broke His Wrist"
    and "Deer," bring to mind the kind of jangly pop euphoria of early Band of Horses or old Built to Spill records, while
    "Everything in Twos" is the kind of pop punk jam seemingly tailor made for singing along in a car at peak volume.

    Nerve Up

    LoneLady, AKA Julie Campbell is a self-styled writer, vocalist and tight guitarist. With little more than thorny determination and a shoestring budget, she built a secluded ramshackle studio in the belly of one of Manchester's crumbling mills and created her debut full length album, Nerve Up in the span of four weeks. The aesthetics of this ex-mill were a pure joy for LoneLady, and invoked the ghosts of bands she loves ... (Joy Division, ESG, Wire, Grace Jones, The Fall, Suicide, PiL). Co-produced by Julie and Guy Fixsen (My Bloody Valentine, The Breeders, Stereolab), LoneLady has delivered far more than just an assembly of songs in album form, but the outcome of a process of making something out of nothing.

    Lonely Starts & Broken Hearts

    Left Alone is punk rock at its best, deriving influences from groups like Operation Ivy, The Clash, and Swingin' Utters. They've shared the stage with Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Briggs, Duane Peters And The Hunns, Horror Pops, and The Nerve Agents. Until now, they've lived the DIY lifestyle, booking their own shows, making their own merchandise, starting their own label, and releasing their own recordings. On this, their debut Hellcat release, they deliver a tightly sealed package of punk that plans to explode within seconds of hitting the play button.

    Colors

    BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME have built their reputation as one of hard rock's most inventive and ambitious bands. Sharing a lineage with such luminaries as Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Tool, they continue to explore new territory with a genuine passion to push themselves and their audience.

    Colors, the band's fourth album, is a sonic labyrinth of grand proportion. It's an organism completely in its own class and at the nerve center is a band that encourages the listener to take the bold ride from beginning to end. The record is a continuous movement of savage metal, lush prog-rock and stimulating mood that morphs into some of the most forward thinking music today. Yet for a record that is so fierce and complex, it is also engaging and comfortable. It challenges the myths of what we expect from modern rock, demonstrating just how much potential there is in a band and the people who experience their craft.

    All Are Saved

    Never settling down for a second, Fred Thomas has spent the last decade and a half flying just beneath the radar of most listeners, but amassing a dedicated grassroots collection of friends and admirers.
    "All Are Saved" is technically the eighth Fred Thomas solo album, and possibly the best yet.


    The result of over a year of recording, refinement and long-labored sonic sculpting, these eleven tracks are the culmination of everything Fred Thomas has done before while being a decidedly bold move into brand new territory. Heavy, poetic lyrics are more spoken than sung, recalling the urgency and straightforwardness
    of cult bands like The Van Pelt or Life Without Buildings, while each song builds on a patchwork of grainy samples, dreamlike guitar figures and deftly produced clashes of organic instrumentation
    and vintage synth textures.


    Fred's dabblings in melancholic chamber pop (Saturday Looks Good To Me), ambient electronics (City Center), jangly but angular guitar playing (Failed Flowers) experimental production and jaw-droppingly confessional lyricism are all distilled into one unflinching statement. These are the raw nerves of the friendliest guy
    at the party, spilling out shamelessly naked feelings. The album features mixing assistance on many songs from Drew Vandenburg (of Montreal, Deerhunter), and several guest spots from friends in bands like People Get Ready, Radiator Hospital, Known Moons and even a guest backing vocal cameo from Andrew W.K.

    Man Is Myth (Early Demos) (Pre-Order)

    Britain's dirtiest doom metal-band CONAN provide insights into a secret world! Man Is Myth - Early Demos are unheard beasts out of their rehearsal room and studio. It roars and cranks all over, dull distortion drags nerves into the coldest regions of the world. It's no accident that they call themselves Caveman Battle Doom. Man Is Myth - Early Demos is the primordial soup for everything that CONAN stands for. There is nothing that fascinates more than the crudity of underlying ideas of eventual noise-hits. Satsumo revives in its rawness of the demo-version of 2006, Gravity Chasm throbs with booming guitars. The grand finale is the previously unreleased Domed Iron Boss - the cherry on top of the cake.

    Transmissions From The Satellite Heart (On Sale)

    1993's Transmissions From The Satellite Heart is the Flaming Lips' second release for Warner Bros. and first with guitarist Ronald Jones and drummer Steven Drozd. The band's transition from indie noisemakers to pop provocateurs was magnified tenfold here by the out of nowhere smash She Don't Use Jelly, which was not only their first charting radio hit but heavily rotated on MTV. No one trick pony, the ambitious 11-song set balances further pop fare like Turn It On and extended numbers like Moth In The Incubator and Slow Nerve Action, with an acoustic folk cut in Plastic Jesus, all with a post-modern style and grace.

    Big Bad Bo

    Heavy funk from the legendary Bo Diddley - one of his amazing comeback albums from the early 70s for Chess, all of which are plenty darn great! For this set, Bo's traded in the scratchy guitar mode of his classic work for a sweeter, tighter funk-based sound - a groove that's supported strongly with electric studio arrangements from Wade Marcus - used here in very nice contrast to Diddley's rougher vocals and guitar! The style's got a bit more electric jazz touches than some of the other Chess blues funk records from the time - but the overall sound is still bound to please any funk fan - and titles include Bite You, Stop The Pusher, You've Got a Lot Of Nerve, and the breakbeat classic Hit Or Miss!

    In The Flat Field

    Few debut albums have ever arrived as nearly perfectly formed as In the Flat Field. It practically invented what remains for many as the blueprint of goth music. In the Flat Field contains a wide variety of inspirations and ideas. The astonishingly precise rhythm section of David J and Kevin Haskins pulls off a variety of jaw-dropping performances, including the high-paced tension of the title track and the brooding crawl of "Spy in the Cab." Daniel Ash, much like his longtime hero Mick Ronson, turns out to be a master of turning relatively simple guitar parts into apocalyptic explosions, from the background fills on "St. Vitus Dance" to the brutal descending chords of "Stigmata Martyr." Murphy, meanwhile, channels as much Iggy Pop as he does Bowie, proving to be no simple copyist of either, able to both maniacally sing-shout and take a somewhat lighter touch throughout. The album concludes with the seven-minute "Nerves," an aptly titled piece that alternates between understated energy and unleashed power spiraling toward a dramatic ending. In the Flat Field started off Bauhaus' album career with a near-perfect bang.

    Kill Bill Volume 2 Soundtrack

    One of the great pleasures of a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack is knowing that it won't be a standard modern-day soundtrack, filled with filler and acts that the label is trying to break. Instead, it will consist of music that even hardcore record collectors will find unusual or at least ripe for revival. The soundtrack to the first volume of his revenge epic Kill Bill blended those two inclinations, but the soundtrack to the second film is almost nothing but unusual music. Some names are familiar, but the music isn't -- there are three selections from Ennio Morricone, rockabilly cult hero Charlie Feathers makes his second Kill Bill appearance, Johnny Cash's latter-day A Satisfied Man is here, and Malcolm McLaren's About Her is a clever trip-hop spin on the Zombies' She's Not There. The rest is devoted to music that sounds like the soundtrack to a Mexican spaghetti Western, which really isn't all that far off from what large parts of Kill Bill, Vol. 2 actually is. This makes for a unified soundtrack album, but one that lacks the immediate impact of Kill Bill, Vol. 1, since nothing is as gripping upon the first listen as the haunting Twisted Nerve, the mesmerizing funk of Battle Without Honor or Humility, or the crazed intensity of the 5.6.7.8's' version of Woo Hoo. That said, it is cinematic, unpredictable, and absorbing, gaining resonance after a viewing of the film, as all good soundtracks do; it only pales in comparison to its predecessor, which was good not just as a soundtrack, but as an album of its own account.

    Killed By Deathrock Vol. 1

    In 2007, Sacred Bones Records founder Caleb Braaten started unearthing rare
    and little-heard post-punk, deathrock and dark punk tracks for an eventual
    compilation. Seven years later, riffing on the tradition of the internationally
    known punk collector series, Killed By Death, those tracks are finally being
    released on vinyl, cD and digital formats as Killed By Deathrock Vol. 1. Bands from
    all over the world are represented on the comp, from the relatively well-known
    Scots in Twisted Nerve to the "completely un-Googleable" Move from Italy.
    Also featured are the French band known simply as Bunker on their first demo
    tape who later became Bunker Strasse, though still remained largely obscure.
    Kitchen and the Plastic Spoons formed as a sort of goof band in Sweden in 1980
    and only released a couple of 7-inches before disbanding a year later in 1981.


    The rest of the comp represents a vast spectrum of geography with the Us being
    represented by Your Funeral, Glorious Din, The Naked and the Dead and
    Afterimage. Screaming For Emily (Uk), Baroque Bordello (France) and Taste of
    Decay (Germany) round out the collection. What all these bands have in common, apart from their dark, icy atmosphere, is that they're quintessential pieces
    of the deathrock story whose music hasn't been heard by nearly enough people
    - until now.

    1. Your Funeral - "I Wanna Be You"
    2. Kitchen & The Plastic Spoons - "Liberty"
    3. Twisted Nerve - "When I'm Alone"

    Tower Of Power

    Tower Of Power is the third album release for the Oakland-based Funk band Tower of Power. This is their most successful album to date, which was released in May 1973. The album peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Top LPs chart and received a Gold record award for sales in excess of 500,000. The album spawned their most successful single, So Very Hard to Go. The single peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. Two other singles from the album also charted on the Billboard Hot 100: This Time It's Real and What Is Hip?.


    It marked the debut of Lenny Williams being the lead vocalist (though Williams had a solo career prior to joining T.O.P., plus he co-penned the song You Strike My Main Nerve from the previous album Bump City [MOVLP1244]). Tower Of Power also introduced the world to saxophonist and future Saturday Night Live band leader, Lenny Pickett, who was the youngest member of the band at the time, replacing original lead sax player Skip Mesquite. Also joining the lineup was organist/keyboardist Chester Thompson and guitarist Bruce Conte, who replaced original guitarist Willie James Fulton.

    Kill Bill Vol. 1 Soundtrack

    Fashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility been more apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this oft tongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film in six years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantino evokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energize martial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus the hip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein, concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow finds itself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TV and film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet, Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twisted Nerve, the spaghetti western melodrama of Luis Bacalov's The Grand Duel, Isaac Hayes in full blaxploitation mode on Run Fay Run), Charlie Feathers' vintage rockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, Nancy Sinatra's angst-in-the-pants take Bang, Bang and Santa Esmeralda's disco-era workout of Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. Tarantino's contemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from Meiko Kaji's sultry Flower of Carnage to The 5.6.7.8's loopy Woo Hoo. It's everything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialog excerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the pop music world thrown in for good measure. -- Jerry McCulley

    PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone

    Light years away from his contributions to the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a guitar slinger from the school of Hendrix, Frusciante's solo albums have been visceral, howling affairs dealing with raw nerves and dark places in the human spirit. Now with both PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone, his music becomes an unfiltered mesh of every conceivable style, sometimes to the point of incoherence. Recorded throughout 2011, the album was the result of Frusciante's dream to create electronic music, but seems like more of a synthesis of a multitude of different directions, sometimes branching out in all of these directions at once.

    There's no easy explanation for these sounds, no context for a lot of the choices he makes with the rapid-fire style changes and jarring production choices that come one after another after another on almost every song here. Instead of sounding indulgent, or even busy, the field of sound Frusciante creates sounds strangely uniform in its complete insanity. Much like the schizophrenic landscape of a record like Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone creates a language of its own out of the chaos, and by the end, we have a few hints at what kind of deeper message lies beneath the confusion. This 180 gram double LP comes with a download card.

    Flying Fantasy


    By embedding both new age and noise-oriented
    electronic themes into his pastoral pieces, Turnquist
    unites disparate traditions and ideals, essentially
    employing sonic counterweights to construct 57 minutes
    that are as surprisingly dynamic as they are perfectly
    beautiful.
    - PITCHFORK (8.2)


    New York's Turnquist is masterful. His right hand
    technique is as orchestral as Nick Drake's, sending rivulets
    of steel sadness out across the water, but applied to a
    minimalist logic with the weight of early Philip Glass or
    Steve Reich
    - UNCUT


    Turnquist layers his six and twelve string guitar
    instrumentals with electronic drones, piano and vibes.
    This first widely available release is a filmic beauty, its
    chilly pastoralism distinguished by the physicality of his
    playing
    - MOJO


    Another bravura outing from Turnquist that is, in its own
    unassuming way, a triumph
    - TEXTURA


    As an accomplished 12-string guitarist/composer, Alexander Turnquist was naturally
    alarmed when the ulnar nerve in his left hand seized up in 2013, but after a surgical procedure he gratefully started the process of learning to play guitar again. His recovery was
    cut short when not long after the surgery he was hospitalized with meningitis. Though his
    recovery is ongoing, and he continues to struggle with a weakened immune system and
    memory loss, he was inspired to soldier on, rather than being deterred by his physical
    struggles.


    Turnquist's latest full-length Flying Fantasy confirms the idea that out of great hardship
    can come great art. As he wrote the material for the new album it became clear that his
    sensitivity had sharpened, his empathy magnified, and his sense of purpose blossomed.
    The unfortunate circumstances he endured ostensibly forced his metamorphosis from a
    remarkable guitar player to a truly great composer. Much like the butterflies that adorn
    the album cover, he seems to have changed form and taken flight.


    The album opens with the sparse harmonics of House of Insomniacs, which are soon
    joined by lush swells of vibes, cello, and even wordless vocals. On the tracks that follow,
    Turnquist continues to make use of this dynamic sonic pallet, even adding organ, piano,
    marimba, steel drums, violin, and french horn to the mix. From Red Carousel, which was
    inspired by Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, to the somber lilt of the love
    song Wildflower, to the truly arresting title track Flying Fantasy which uses only 4 open
    strummed guitars and loops of damaged tape and wire recorders, every note vibrates with
    life as Turnquist ushers us though his intoxicatingly colorful worlds of sound.

    The Trigger Complex


    Ultra Clear Vinyl


    Influential Southern California punk rock pioneers T.S.O.L. will make their awaited return in 2017 with a new record label and their 11th studio album, The Trigger Complex.


    T.S.O.L., short for True Sounds of Liberty, struck a nerve in the early 80's with their defiant, politically charged self-titled debut EP. At the intersection of punk and gothic new wave, the band's evolution of sound continued resulting in their critically heralded, full-length record Dance With Me (1981) as well as many other fan coveted albums, with various lineup changes and reunions along the way, that cemented their legacy in the punk scene as one of the most influential bands to come out of California.


    Now, nearly four decades later, original members Ron Emory, Mike Roche and Jack Grisham have returned to creative heights with one of their most inspired albums in decades with The Trigger Complex. Comprising of thirteen songs, the band's new record runs the gamut of charging punk anthems to brooding rock songs that will no doubt please listeners. Given the country's turbulent, divisive political climate it could not be better timing for the return of one of punk's most important and vocal bands.
    "It's a great time to be making music; to have a voice that can be heard," says Grisham. "I'm glad that things look bleak. Political turmoil breeds strength as well as strife. This record allows us to remind people that they aren't alone. We're here."

    Sixth album from the genre-jumping Detroit band. A number of the songs think big (Extraordinary Times, Big Game Hunter, Giant) or consider what is possible (?Posible o' Imposible?, Rats Rats Rats). It's philosophical, it's randy. It's got energy, it's got nerve. It's sexy and fresh, strange and smart. It's the kind of album kids will be downloading, illegal or not, as they talk about the lyrics.

    Pete Yorn

    With ten years and five studio albums under his belt, Pete Yorn is a stalwart in the singer/songwriter world. Originally receiving acclaim for his work scoring a Farrelly Brothers film (Me, Myself and Irene), Yorn quickly began garnering much deserved attention for his efforts as a songwriter outside of his work on film. Having tasted success, Yorn released his first full-length, musicforthemorningafter in 2001, which went gold and had Rolling Stone hailing him one of Ten To Watch in 2001.



    Fast forward through nearly a decade and multiple musical ventures to 2010 to find Pete Yorn releasing his sixth studio album on Vagrant Records. The 11-song collection was produced by Frank Black (The Pixies) and is comprised of raw tracks, born of shattered nerves and shifting dreams yet edged with hope.



    Recorded on the spur-of-the-moment in the summer of 2008, Yorns forthcoming album is a self-titled piece with a plain black cover. While in the midst of tracking Back & Forth, Yorn received an email from Frank Black suggesting they record some songs. After hopping a plane to Salem, OR, Black and Yorn set up an impromptu studio where they created the album in a mere five days. The result is Yorns most introspective work to date, as the self-titled album explores relationships, ambivalence and our natural fear of the future and unknown.

    The Montgomery Movement

    Funk's answer to the Five Blind Boys of Alabama,
    Florida's Montgomery Express stood at the crossroads
    of politically conscious soul and mystically awakened
    dance music. Comprised of two blind musicians in
    their 20s and a teenage rhythm section, their lone LP
    was cut in 1972 for Orlando's Dove label, then reissued
    on Folkways two years later. Although the label usually
    steered clear of soul music and anything remotely
    commercial sounding, Montgomery Express tapped into
    Folkways' Guthrie-cum-Chamber Bros. nerve.


    "My whole life, I heard music in the air, beautiful music.
    I've been involved in supernatural things,spoken with
    spirits. I have heard an orchestra up in the air. I know
    I've heard it." -Paul Montgomery

    Pretenders (On Sale)

    Pretenders One of the Most Essential Debuts Ever Released: No-Nonsense 1980 Set Ranked 155th Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Added Extension, Sharper Imaging, Multi-Dimensional Soundstaging on MoFi 180g LP Place Pretenders on a Small Stage in Your Room


    Pretenders' Self-Titled Record Moves Fast With Biting Hooks, Soulful Melodies, and Guitar-Charged Toughness: Includes Brass In Pocket, Precious, and Tattooed Love Boys


    The milieu the Pretenders create on their groundbreaking debut didn't exist when the album came out in early 1980. Such is the magnitude of originality, creativity, and nerve the band captured on a record that captivated each side of the Atlantic and both upended and advanced tradition. The no-nonsense set also announced the arrival of the inimitable Chrissie Hynde, one of the greatest singer-songwriters in rock history, gender be damned. Equally significant, the album remains just one of two studio efforts featuring the original members before tragedy ended the lives of guitarist James Honeyman-Scott and bassist Pete Farndon.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's 180g LP of Pretenders grants the influential music newfound clarity, punch, dynamics, and perspective that enhance the realism and attack of everything from Hynde's vocal snarl to the band's myriad textures. Originally recorded live in the studio at high volume levels by producer Chris Thomas, the record on this vinyl edition boasts added extension, sharper imaging, multi-dimensional soundstaging, and a crispness that practically places the Pretenders onstage in your room. Replete with detail and nuance-particularly, Hynde's singing and Honeyman-Scott's terrific array of hovering chords, colorful palettes, and inventive effects-this is a record that rewards repeat listening and full-bloom playback.


    Cited by Rolling Stone as the 155th Greatest Album of All Time, Pretenders took shape via the vision of the Ohio-born Hynde and chemistry she achieved with three Brits circling the same punk orbit-one that saw the frontwoman work with the Sex Pistols and briefly embark on a serious music-criticism career. Indeed, while Hynde is the unquestionable leader of the gang, the Pretenders are the sum of their total parts, displaying rapport and interaction that never came together more convincingly, naturally, or emotionally as it does on their debut. Honeyman-Scott's ringing arpeggio tones seamlessly combine with Hynde's no-muss sass, sensuality, and soulfulness. Similarly, the rhythm section contributes considerable thump and classically styled explosiveness. Together, the four sound like no other band.


    Such distinctiveness helps explain why Pretenders remains as contemporary now as it did 30-odd years ago.Schooled in the era's raw, unfiltered English punk yet equally versed in rockabilly, new-wave pop, and British Invasion rock, the band orchestrates songs that overflow with keen hooks, sexual swagger, and ear-catching melodies. Courtesy of the aggressive guitars and leather-tough cool, Pretendersmoves fast, Hynde's assertive deliveries and take-notice lyrics jolting the senses with a lethal mix of sophistication, toughness, tenderness, rebelliousness, and romance.


    With Honeyman-Scott playing the Richards to her Jagger, Hynde operates on pure instinct. She throws down the gauntlet on the corrugated pulse of Precious, proves she can hang with even the roughest boys on the energetic bounce of Tattooed Love Boys, and, on the smash hit Brass In Pocket, spouts self-aggrandizing claims that she would back up for decades to come. Yet Hynde and the Pretenders' appeal goes much deeper than brazenness. Akin to her guitarist's unconventional phasing and treated effects, the singer never abides by rules or stereotypes as she balances the gutsiness and attitude with sensitivity (Lovers of Today), compassion (the jangling Stop Your Stopping), and vulnerability (Kid).


    Pretenders is not only one of the most impressive album debuts in history, it's one of the most essential records, independent of genre or timing, ever made. Hear this energetic music in the finest-possible fidelity it's ever enjoyed.

    The Satanist (Awaiting Repress)


    Exclusive Bonus Track


    Double Gatefold Jacket


    24-Page LP Sized Book


    "The Satanist is magic. It's dangerous. It's adventurous, and it's organic," states Nergal, the driving force behind Behemoth since their inception in 1991, and brief exposure to the band's tenth album more than supports this statement. While instantly recognizable as the work of the Polish blackened death quartet it takes their sound in previously unimagined and riveting directions. A writhing, densely layered, brutally violent and sinister record, it is quite unlike anything ever unleashed within the canon of heavy music. As such it demands attention, offering ever greater sonic and emotional depths with every listen. "You may hear the title and think it's very primitive and one-dimensional, and yes it is, but when you look beyond that it's as primitive as it is complex and multidimensional, and that applies to everything about the record."


    It has been a rocky road leading to the realization of the album. Having dropped 2009s Evangelion to almost universal critical acclaim they saw it top the chart in their native country and dramatically expand their following around the world, and playing some of the best shows of their lives the band seemed truly unstoppable. But, in August 2010 Nergal was diagnosed with leukemia, stopping them in their tracks. Forced to abandon their ongoing tour in support of Evangelion Nergal was hospitalized, and both he and Behemoth faced an uncertain future. With the search for a bone marrow donor ultimately successful Nergal underwent a transplant, leaving the hospital after six months and beginning down the long road to rehabilitation. "I knew I was pretty much fucked and there was a battle to be won, and I had no fucking idea if it was going to take six months or twelve months or maybe four years, because with cancer you never know. I learned from being in the hospital that there are things in life that you can control and things that you can't control. The sooner you realize which is which it's going to make your life so much easier, and since then I started to focus on the right things. I could be determined, I could have discipline, I could have faith, but everything else is not under my control, and it really was a case of just crossing fingers for the best possible outcome. I was fortunate enough that that recovery period was relatively fast, and that I was really strong and very determined to get back into shape made a real difference."


    Rather than immediately getting down to working on a new album, the band - also comprised of drummer Inferno, bassist Orion, and guitarist Seth - set out to complete the abandoned touring cycle for Evangelion, hitting the road for the aptly titled Phoenix Rising Tour. Wanting to prove they were stronger than ever the first show was the only time doubts crept into Nergal's mind. "I was a fucking wreck, and I almost didn't make it to the end of the set. The venue was really smoky, and that was stuffing my nose and my lungs, and physically I felt that I couldn't pull it off. I did, but I was close to passing out on stage. I was literally shocked by this, I remember thinking while we were playing shit, what if I can't do this anymore? I'm just a human being after all. Going into the next show I had no sleep because of all the nerves and anxiety, but it was fucking amazing. With every following show I would get stronger and stronger and grow more confident, and aware of the fact that yes, we will do this."


    Having returned to full force the band were ready to once more move forward, and they began work on what would become The Satanist. While many bands might be concerned with how to follow up a record as devastatingly powerful - and successful - as Evangelion Nergal faced no such doubts. "I don't race myself, and I don't need to prove anything to anyone. Evangelion was a very important record to us, and yes, it was very successful too, but in making The Satanist it wasn't a point of beating that. The point was to do what was organic, and make a natural and honest and sincere album, and that's it. Now the record is finished I like to think of it as an album that is just so different that you can't really compare it to our previous works, which is the best outcome I could hope for." One thing is inarguable, and that is the record is the most sonically rich and complex released under the Behemoth name. With layer upon layer of sound it has great sonic density, but there is intricacy to this, and nothing is forced or contrived. "I don't have a kid but I think the process of raising one is comparable: you invest a lot of your energy and effort and wisdom and money and you educate them, but there's never a one hundred percent guarantee he's going to become a lawyer and not a serial killer. It's the same story with the records - we supply the elements but we just don't know how these elements mixed together are going to come out, and I think it's fortunate that we don't have one hundred percent control over it! It makes for something special."


    The title of the record itself is undeniable in its power, and Nergal sees it as capturing the primal wisdom that the band have always tried to maintain. "To me it's not pretentious at all. It's very straight up, very sincere, and a devastating, conquering statement. There's no compromise or bullshit or gimmicks. What I love about it is that it just speaks for itself. On one hand it's a very black and white title: The Satanist is like a fucking nail through the hand of Jesus Christ, period. No more, no less. But then again, as with everything else you put a hundred people together and ask them what the name The Satanist means to them and you're going to hear a hundred different opinions, which they can then discuss and fight over." Likewise, Nergal views the lyrical content of the record as similarly open to interpretation, encouraging this. "There's a lot of symbolism and reflections and impressions in there, and it's using millions of metaphors to express a certain very sinister and very captivating atmosphere, but there are no answers. People always like to have a deeper insight into what we do, but that's not what we want to give with this record. The way I see it is that between us we can make a huge fucking pyre and set the world on fire, but what we're doing is just giving you the matches, giving you the spark, what you want to do with it is up to you. Personally, if I sat down with the lyrics in front of me I too would probably come up with a lot of different interpretations and concepts, it's a never ending process, and that's exciting to me."


    Twenty-three years and ten albums into their career, that Behemoth is still in the ascendant is a statement to their commitment, determination and capacity for writing such powerful music. If ever a band was to go out on a high The Satanist would make for one hell of a swan song, but don't expect them to disappear any time soon. "I remember before we we had a record deal I was having a conversation with Baal, the band's original drummer, and we said okay, if one day we manage to record an album and put it out how cool would it be to split up right after that? It would be one record and no more, and there was something about that that had an appeal, but y'know what, it doesn't work like that for individuals like myself. Hunger has always driven me through life, and I can never sit in one place and relax for too long because I have the need to explore this whole universe in every possible way. Now, over two decades later it's the same story. I can tell you I have no problems with finishing my career after this record. Just say the title itself: The Satanist. How the fuck am I gonna beat that title? It sounds like the ultimate definition of our art - but then again, I remember that conversation with Baal, and I know it doesn't work like that, so I know there will probably be other incarnations of our artistic identity, one way or another. All I know is I love being here and now, and I just want to underline that I couldn't be more proud and happy with my own music. It really drives me through the day, and now I just want to sit back and hear any and all opinions of it."

    X-No Absolutes

    180 Gram Double LP + CD


    After a self-prescribed hiatus, 2012 saw Prong blow the hinges off the door with the release of "Carved Into Stone". Seemingly out of nowhere, Tommy Victor and company managed to combine all the previous elements of the band's formula: thrash, hard-core, industrial metal, etc. with a new urgency and angst that struck a deep nerve with the band's loyal fan-base and beyond.


    The band marched onwards with 2014's highly acclaimed "Ruining Lives" which spawned a number of instant classics. "Turno-ver", The Barriers" and the title track became staples in their live set when embarking on a bone breaking schedule of concerts around the world in support of the record. A video for Remove, Separate Self" was released creating even more interest in this significant recording.


    Recorded over the summer of 2014 and released in early 2015, Prong's cover album "Songs From The Black Hole" was loved by fans and critics alike. Always game to make the unexpected move, the album featured songs from artists as diverse as HÜsker DÜ, The Bad Brains, Black Flag, The Sisters Of Mercy and Neil Young.


    After yet another headline tour, it was straight back to the studio for another studio album. Just days after mixing was completed, PRONG went on the road with Danzig and SuperJoint Ritual in North America and released the first single "Ultimate Authority" on the day the tour began.


    "X - No Absolutes" is Prong at their very best. The sheer intensity and ferocity of the albums opening triumvirate "Ultimate Authority", "Sense Of Ease" and "Without Words" leaves the listener gasping for air. The title track is crunchy and catchy at the same time. "Do Nothing" may be as close as you will ever hear PRONG get to a ballad and shows the enormous progress and confidence Victor has made vocally. It is hard to find a weak spot here, notably Victor mentions that „sequencing the album was a difficult task; every song is so strong in it's own way".


    Again produced by Tommy Victor, this time with trusted collaborator Chris Collier as co-producer and engineer, "X - No Absolutes" also broadens the horizon sonically.
