BLEACH EVERYTHING / VORS Split 7-Inch Due In October Via Magic Bullet Records: Richmond Punk Destroyers & Los Angeles Synth Creep Unite

Magic Bullet Records has locked a killer, two-band split 7” for October release, marking the debuts of two fairly new names to the scene — Richmond, Virginia’s BLEACH EVERYTHINGand Los Angeles, California’s VORS — both of which include some very not new names to the scene. Confused? Allow us to delve…

BLEACH EVERYTHING kick off the festivities with “The Moaner,” a demented little number about a violent man that lives in your attic undetected. Musically, the pace is as frantic and urgent as the final sands in the proverbial hourglass. Drums are crushed, buzzsaw guitars cut deeply across the speakers, and overdriven bass pushes along the possessed and just flat-out eerie vocals in a pre-meditated murderous game of musical chairs. Featuring current members of Iron Reagan, Suppression, and former members of Jesuit and Corn On Macabre, you know full-well it’s going to be a completely twisted take on music as most people conventionally know it.

Like all great bi-polar incidents and episodes, VORS complements the violent carnage of BLEACH EVERYTHING via a deliberate, dead-behind-the-eyes ditty appropriately titled “Mood Swinger.” Synth-heavy and glacially paced, the track sounds like it was written from the fire escape outside of the kitchen window you’re obliviously walking around behind (towel optional). Drenched in the gritty low-budget outsider sleaze that defined many of the great VHS hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s, this could have easily been the soundtrack to “Maniac,” “Deranged,” “Possessed” and the like. It’s cold, it’s rainy, and it’s highly likely that VORS(aka J Bennett from Ides Of Gemini) is talking and laughing to himself while cutting the phone lines in your neighborhood.

The whole bloody affair is packaged in a disturbingly meticulous and obsessive wrap from the hands and the mind of former Kink.com set-dresser STK MTN. This is the kind of record the brown paper bag was invented for.

Magic Bullet Records will let this auditory assault out of the bag on digital download and both black and white 7” vinyl pressings worldwide on October 14th.

Additional news on both acts will be stalking you shortly.

ANCIENT VVISDOM: Occult Death Rock Conjurors To Unleash Third Full-Length Via Magic Bullet Next Month

Sep 25 2014

theopposition(Source: Earsplit Compound)

Cleveland, Ohio’s occult death rock conjurors, ANCIENT VVISDOM, will release their third full-length, entitled Sacrificial, later this Fall via Magic Bullet Records.

On Sacrificial, ANCIENT VVISDOM delivers ten tracks that continue to push the boundaries of both death rock and neo-folklore while retaining the memorable simplicity and melodic catchiness present on their previous, critically-lauded manifestations. Produced by founding vocalist Nathan Opposition, engineered by Travis Smith at The Diamond Factory Studios in Austin and mastered by Paul Logus (Anthrax, Clutch, Hellyeah, Shadows Fall et al) at Taloowa Mastering in New York, Sacrificial fuses all the prime qualities of the likes of Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Quicksand, into a wholly anthemic album of dark and light.
Thematically, Sacrificial delves further into singer Nathan Opposition’s personal ascent into the unanticipated enlightenment of exploring humanity’s universal darkness. Whereas traditional lore dealing with the occult, paganism, and Satan tends to be heavy-handed (and often synonymous with a proverbial descent away from any sort of positive self-affirmation), Sacrificial spins a slant wherein “down” becomes “up.” In Opposition’s world, confronting one’s own demons and humanity’s primordial penchant toward chaos and destructive ritual will ultimately pass each seeker through a threshold unto which deeper knowledge, sage wisdom, and self-realization envelop one’s consciousness.

Comments Opposition, “Where there is chaos you will find us. Where there is disorder, others find discomfort yet I find salvation. Lead me not unto anything. I am my own. This album will enlighten the fools and give the enlightened something to listen to.”

Musically, Opposition and his brother, Michael the Dark Angel, continue to accomplish what countless musicians frustratingly attempt to conquer in their songwriting: simple, memorable riffs and melodies that stand the test of time. Each hymn comprising Sacrificialis hummable and infectious. Like the best practitioners in any field, the brothers make it look and sound easy to the point where everyone listening thinks they can do it (spoiler alert: very few can ever do it). New addition Mitch Keith Morris wastes no time in making his mark on Sacrificial, channeling deep primitive and tribal percussive influences into the empowering sound that is unmistakably ANCIENT VVISDOM.

Sacrificial Tack Listing:
1. Rise Of An Ancient Evil
2. Chaos Will Reign
3. Blood Offering
4. Devils Work
5. Blind Leading The Blind
6. Worm Ridden Skull
7. I Am Your Sacrifice
8. City Of Stone
9. We Are Damnation
10. Higher Into The Black Flames

Sacrificial will come available on LP, CD and digitally via Magic Bullet Records worldwide on October 14, 2014. Preorders and song teasers to be unveiled in the days to come. Stay alert.

BEASTMILK: Magic Bullet Records Confirms Stateside Issues Of Two Early Releases

Sep 25 2014

As part of a swarm of new titles from Magic Bullet Records coming together for release over the coming months, the label is proud to announce the impending stateside issues of BEASTMILK’s Use Your Deluge EP and White Stains on Black Wax single.

Initially issued as a self-released cassette in 2010, which Fenriz of Darkthrone praised in his Band Of The Week features, several hundred copies of the White Stains on Black Tape demo tape sold out immediately. The strength of the material on White Stains on Black Tapegarnered the attention and appreciation of Finland’s Svart Records, who issued the songs on vinyl in 2011. In the years to follow, the 7” and tape became cult favorites amongst rabid underground music fans. Metal Hammer Germany wrote that “BEASTMILK sounds like the secret recording from a psychedelic mass, located stylistically between Roky Erickson, early Misfits, and The Devil’s Blood.”

Use Your Deluge was originally issued as a four-song 7” in 2012. Early discoverers of the EP were treated to the apocalyptic post punk brilliance that the rest of the world would come to clamor for a year later with the band’s Climax LP. The expanded fervor for Climax sent music fans worldwide in search of the band’s entire catalog, which depleted Svart’s stock of the Use Your Deluge and White Stains on Black Wax stock overnight. “Wicked…trippy…dreamy…and pretty fucking epic” said Rocknreelreviews about Use Your Deluge, and Avantgarde-Metal.com called it “downer death-rock, heavily indebted to the likes of early Christian Death and similar noctambulant cobweb-mongers.”

Rabid demand for both releases drove eBay activity through the roof, causing the band to enlist Svart and Magic Bullet Records to repress both EPs in efforts meet the sudden and increasing demand. Magic Bullet will release both Use Your Deluge and White Stains on Black Wax on colored vinyl and digital platforms for North American fans on October 14th, 2014, as well as a Black Friday edition of Use Your Deluge to follow.

WORMWOOD: Debut Album From Original Doomriders Members Nears October Release Via Magic Bullet

Sep 25 2014

Magic Bullet Records will deliver one of the most corrosive sludge/doom releases of the year with the somewhat unexpected self-titled debut and incurably bleak and sinister awakening and introduction to the world of Boston’s newest heavy music titan, WORMWOOD.

In 2005, band members Chris Pupecki and Chris Bevilacqua represented one half of the progenitors of Black Thunder, the debut album from Northeast perennials, Doomriders. Pupecki played guitars and Bevilacqua handled drums. Nine years later, the duo have come back together to unleash a sound and a vision much, much farther out on the plains of annihilation than either had gone prior. Recorded 100% analog by Alex Garcia, you will simply not be hearing the sounds of Wormwood on Apple commercials, in romantic comedies, or overhead while walking through the mall. Song titles and lyrics like “Hollow Black Eyes” and “I’d Rather Die” obviously convey a very specific worldview and outlook. The sonic attack is harsh, the vocals are unapologetically negative, and it’s all destructively perfect as the needle digs in across the vinyl expanse of this stunning debut. If albums from Winter, Warhorse, -16-, Old Man Gloom and Graves At Sea frequent your habitual deafening, WORMWOOD should be next in line.

In the straight world, “wormwood” often describes a state (or even source, when describing the woody shrub of the same name) of bitterness and grief. In the metal underground, and with the release of Wormwood, the concept is about to be cemented many times over. Time will mend our bones but never heal our souls.

Wormwood will see worldwide release through Magic Bullet on digital and LP — the first pressing on smoke, black and red variations — on October 14th, 2014. Additionally, a CD run including a limited woven patch will be released by Patac Records, and a super limited run of cassettes will be released on Negative Fun Records. Stand by for audio from the album, preorders and other news to be issued in the coming days.
