 AS WE DRAW «Mirages»October 4th 2014 · 2xLP, CD, Digital · THRT046

"«Mirages» is the outstanding second full-length from french powerhouse AS WE DRAW. Pursuing their will of constant evolution since 2009, these Laval natives have imposed their unique take on post-metal and noisy hardcore, crafted through ambitious songwriting and disarming live performances. Three years in the making, the follow-up to 2010's «Lines Breaking Circles» shows a band decided to challenge themselves as much as the listener (if not even more), out of every sub-genres conventions and commonplaces. As a proof, the album starts with the longest track ever wrote by the band. The ten-minutes mudslide that is "The Window" flows from eerie and intricate melodies to overwhelming parts, before descending into an unreal, glacial ending.
This record is the culmination of the power trio's hard-earned mastery, where dense and nervous tracks ("Blackmail", "Denial") stand alongside richly atmospheric and massive soundscapes ("Shipwreck", "Fata Morgana"). Engineered and mixed at La Senelle by their drummer Amaury Sauvé, mastered by Magnus Lindberg, and lyrically exploring the theme of paranoïa seen through different eyes, «Mirages» is destined to remain an awe-inspiring piece of dark and forward-thinking heavy music."

 VERMIN WOMB «Permanence»September 1st 2014 · 12"EP, Digital · THRT045

"While their name is probably unfamiliar to most, Denver's VERMIN WOMB is the new project from Ethan Lee Mc Carthy (guitar/vocals in Primitive Man and formerly of Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, Death Of Self...). Their debut EP "Permanence" fills the hole left by CTTTOAFF's apocalyptic take on grind/death and sludge (same line-up, different drummer) in a darker, more metallic way, and still topped by some of the most terrifying vocals and brutal guitar tones around."

 PROTESTANT «In Thy Name»August 15th 2014 · LP, Digital · THRT044

"Milwaukee's PROTESTANT, a full decade into its existence, has made a record more furious, focused and over the top than anything previous combined. This is perhaps a band with nothing to lose and no interest in anything other than spitting in the face of any enemy within reach. After four full-lengths and a plethora of EPs and splits, «In Thy Name» brings the band's brand of dark and crusty metallic hardcore to new levels of sonic destruction. All wrapped up in a raw, noisy production, these eight tracks are nothing but a brutal collision of punk/hardcore and extreme metal that won't give any quarter, ever."

 VUYVR «Incinerated Gods»July 15th 2014 · 12"EP, Digital · THRT043

"Roughly one year after their acclaimed debut full-length, Swiss black metal mongers VUYVR deliver their new offering "Incinerated Gods". On these four lengthy tracks, the band pursues the style previously developed on "Eiskalt", paying their dues to traditional black metal while sticking to the unusual approach you can expect from these hardcore/post-metal veterans (members of Impure Wilhelmina, Rorcal...). These recordings also serve to pass the torch between drummers, the three first songs introducing new hitter Bastien (Lost Sphere Project), while the closing track stands as the last song recorded with Roderic Mounir (Knut). Cold, brutal and melodic, this live-recorded EP is another testimony of VUYVR's raw power, making the band standing apart from their contemporaries."

 PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND «Lowgazers»March 31th 2014 · LP, Digital · THRT042

"Four years after «How Hate Is Hard To Define» and a pair of splits, here's the long-awaited second full-length from Toulouse, France's PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND. «Lowgazers» marks another impressive step in the band's quest of total aural devastation : armed with new drummer Ivo (Stuntman, PAL…), the four-piece picks the most dissonant and experimental aspects of black metal, hardcore and sludge to create an unreal vortex of desolation.

From the first notes of "Thrvst", the band reaches new heights of intensity, switching from inhuman blast beats to slow-motion torture, while unorthodox guitar work and painfully shrieked vocals tear the listener from all quarters. Recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, Calvaiire, Death Engine…) then mastered at New Alliance East (Converge, Gaza, Xasthur), «Lowgazers»'s sounds commensurate to the band's vision, being a ruthless demonstration of power as well as an untouchable pinnacle in extreme music hybridization."
