OF THE UMBILICAL CORD "I'M SURPRISED HE HASN'T KILLED ANYONE"
DEBUT FULL LENGTH IN STORES AND iTUNES NOW
MASSACRE OF THE UMBILICAL CORD's debut CD I'm Surprised He Hasn't
Killed Anyone is now in stores and iTunes across North America, the
UK, and mainland Europe. For those fearing that the label "went indie
rock" over the summer, MOTUC should be nothing short of overcompensation
to counter said argument. Like throwing a fresh swordfish onto the deck
of a cruise ship at sunset, it's not going to be pretty any way you look
at it. Violence, blood, death... If you like your metal on the maniacal
side, this one's for you.

& MOSH PATROL DEBUT CD ANNOUNCED FOR JANUARY 23 RELEASE ON CD AND
Amidst the dizzying, disorientating
stretches of the ever-expanding digital landscape that rapidly engulfs
the world's populace with each passing hour, our inhabitants become more
and more draped with dependency on an electronic world. MySpace, iPods,
Blackberries, text messaging... Our eyes have become so accustomed to
staring at LCD's all day that we have forgotten what it is to walk out
the front door and explore the world with our own eyes, feet, and hands.
Yet a primordial calling still beckons and bellows from beneath all the
wiring and patch cables... the type of voice that makes grown men abandon
their laptops, cell phones, and PDA's for emergency vacations to the Alaskan
wilderness and other remote locales for weeks at a time. The same voice
that is the reason we are obsessed with television programming like ABC's
Not surprisingly, much of our music paints a reflection of the times.
Pop record vocals are now more machine than human thanks to pitchshifting
and Autotune. Pre-formatted beats and loops are just as acceptable and
embraced as sweaty, imperfect analog tape recordings. Even casual listeners
have added "circuit bending" into their musical vernacular these
The ambient/avant monikers for Brent Eyestone (FORENSICS) and Chris King
(THIS WILL DESTROY YOU), AUGHRA and MOSH PATROL (respectively) can both
be described as the glorious head-on collision between our digital "sophistication"
and our primordial longings. Massive aural soundscapes and delicate, contemplative
melodies permeate this split collaboration, eliciting trance-like introspection
upon repeated listening. Packed with mysteries, chills, and other elements
that draw a universal nostalgia from within the listener, AUGHRA and MOSH
PATROL will sink into your bones and stay put. If you're looking for a
disc to paint your mental canvas over the long hard winter, seek no further.

LIMITED EDITION CASSETTES FROM AUGHRA/EARTHEN
SEA AND WETHER NOW AVAILABLE FOR MAILORDER ONLY
Magic Bullet Records has issued
two limited edition, hand-painted cassettes
available exclusively via mailorder. Both pieces are limited to 50, so
you will need to act fast. We currently only have 6 copies of the AUGHRA/EARTHEN
SEA tape and 17 of the WETHER left.
and EARTHEN SEA are the monikers for the soundscape/ambient projects of
Brent Eyestone and Jacob Long, perhaps more familiarly known for their
work in more traditional touring acts FORENSICS and BLACK EYES, respectively.
On this very special C-30, AUGHRA previews two new, lengthy tracks that
will later surface as closers on the upcoming CD debut out this winter.
EARTHEN SEA pulls a previously unreleased lustration from the vaults that
begs repeated, hypnotic listens. Both sides fit as if assembled by a Tetris
champion... pairing two artists exploring similar sonic territory for
30 minutes of blissful immersion.
The madman behind the Electric Human Project label and one-half of sonic
duo BIG CHINA & LITTLE TROUBLE, Mike Haley has also been pumping out
an insane amount of productivity under the WETHER moniker for the last
few years or so. "Living Headache" is the latest effort, a dense
30 minutes of drones, hums, and peaks that plays slightly less harsh than
WETHER output prior. An evolution in the making?

In February, the most homicidal split release possible comes hurtling
toward your face in the form of a CONTROL/MASSACRE OF THE UMBILICAL CORD
team-up. Remember DEADGUY live? Well, CONTROL would be like D2 or something...
sent from the future to completely fuck you up. Mammoth slabs of hot-choppery
just sent crashing down all around you... you don't know whether to shit
or go blind. The absolute perfect pairing of the Carolinas' most legitimately
frightening and dangerous live acts.
Speaking of devastation, did we forget to mention that we're done remixing
the JESUIT discography? Yes, it finally happened. 3 years after Eyestone
and Nate Newton hatched the concept on the leathery bench of the OLD MAN
GLOOM van, it has come to fruition courtesy of the workhorse known as
Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE) at the boards. Needless to say, it's sounding better
than ever and well worth the wait. Currently in the mastering and artwork
phase, we're hoping to unleash this early in 07. Are you ready to poop?
After that, Brett, Nate, and Benoit are talking of reuniting for the purpose
of recording a NEW release to unleash on the modern heavy music scene...
you aren't ready.
In December, MBR's resident genius STEPHEN BRODKSY enters God City to
record a new disc full of "heavy" tracks to hopefully make up
for the lapse between his last solo disc. Hey, he's been busy. There's
also talk of some very special lo-fi and demo-type releases we'll be helping
with on some of his upcoming solo tour dates... more soon. We are still
planning on releasing the 4-track era anthology, we just have about 40
more CD-R's and DAT's to sift through first.
Somewhere in there, we'll be firing up the vinyl presses once again. We
took summer off because too much of it gets warped in transit during the
hot months. But we'll be back with a vengeance... first up: THIS WILL
DESTROY YOU Young Mountain LP.
