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.
