We have re-released BIRDS IN ROW's "Collected" on vinyl, and for the very first time on CD. Order it now here. The LP comes on limited ultraclear/silver A side/B side or black vinyl and is housed in a spot UV varnish jacket. The CD comes in a 6 panels digipack.
"Collected" contains all the band's pre-"You, Me And The Violence" material : 2010's EP "Rise Of The Phoenix", 2011's EP "Cottbus" as well as "Phoenix", the very first song written by the band. Stream it here.
We are extremely happy to announce our collaboration with Switzerland's post-punk outfit FUTURE FACES. Their very first 12"EP "Revolt" is a) the strongest debut release we have heard in a while b) scheduled for release on late May via Throatruiner Records and GPS Prod. More details soon.
"On their debut EP "Revolt", Switzerland's FUTURE FACES delivers some glacial post-punk of the gloomiest order, with a level of mastery rarely heard on a band's first recording. Formed in 2015 in Geneva by members of Equus and Elizabeth, the three-piece aims for a timeless, personal sound, devoid of any soulless revivalism.
Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Beastmilk, Okkultokrati…), these four tracks find the perfect balance between the clean and the noisy. With hypnotic drums, abyssal bass lines, elegant yet unpolished guitar work and reverb-drenched vocals, each track is a lesson in stand-out songwriting. "Revolt" is a slow descension into a lightless, enveloping sound, and the birth certificate of a band that is nothing but full of promises."

Here's the cover art for FANGE upcoming release "Pourrissoir", designed by Anterograde. The record will be out this spring on 12" vinyl, CD and digital via Throatruiner Records and Lost Pilgrims Records. More details soon.
"A mere few months after the release of their debut album "Purge", french degenerate sludge quartet FANGE maintains their devouring fire with these six new tracks. With strong visual and lyrical ties to its predecessor, "Pourrissoir" marks the closing of a chapter for the band, while standing both as their most punishing work and as a step outside their comfort zone.
This time showcasing a colder approach in songwriting and production, their appeal for all things gritty gives character to their metallic sludgecore, leaning towards chuggy death metal, noise rock-infused slow-burners or harsh noise. With a now triple-vocal attack and a bigger emphasis on the ear-drilling side of their sound, "Pourrissoir" and its hammering wall of sound - once again captured by KKP in their hometown of Rennes - is one more proof of the band's unending thirst for unpleasant, gut-punching sounds."

Extremely honored to welcome Pyrrhon to our already exceptional roster. We will release their upcoming album on vinyl, while Willowtip Records will handle the CD version. Full announcement below.
«Experimental New York death metal band Pyrrhon (pronounced "peer-on”) have partnered up with Willowtip records (North America) and Throatruiner (Europe) to release new material.
"We're absolutely thrilled to be working with these two fantastic labels, as clichéd as that might be. Willowtip has been the foremost name in weirdo death metal mutations since we were all in middle school, and Throatruiner has become one of the world's best purveyors of unclassifiable heaviness in recent years. Both have released work by many past and current band favorites, and we look forward to delivering our strongest work yet (another cliché, but true!) amid such excellent company”, comments vocalist Doug Moore.
The band is set to enter Thousand Caves studio in Queens, NY with engineer Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Dysrhythmia) to begin tracking their 3rd full length album which is slated for a late 2017 release.
Pyrrhon's music fuses the technical intensity of contemporary death metal and grindcore with unsettling ideas from noise rock and free improvisation. They have five official releases to their name so far: 2009's Fever Kingdoms EP, 2011's An Excellent Servant But A Terrible Master, 2014's The Mother Of Virtues, 2015's Growth Without End EP, and 2016's Running Out Of Skin EP. They have toured extensively in North America and Europe, and worked with a variety of labels that includes Relapse Records and Selfmadegod Records.»
