Haggatha "V" LP Available Now

Haggatha “V” LP - Available Now on Nerve Altar

Vancouver’s enduring traffickers of sludge defilement return with their third full length album and fifth solo release, appropriately titled “V”. Six tracks of churning riff demolition clocking in at almost 40 minutes in a sleek package that continues the core aesthetic of the band emblem, this time in a black on black motif utilizing a spot gloss UV print.

Current and ex-members of Bison BC, 3 Inches of Blood, Goatsblood, Osk

Album description:
“Haggatha excavate primordial doom from deep beneath the Earth’s crust, conjuring some lamentable ancient devastation. Desperate, ruinous sludge from a cataclysmic prehistory that claws it’s way back into the folds of the reptile consciousness in a torrent of hopeless murk.

A Lone 2016 Year End List

Didn't solicit any year-end lists from people this year. There are already too many websites with endless boring lists cluttering up my feeds and I could barely come up with ten records as it was. This list does not include reissues, otherwise it would be all Bohren & Der Club of Gore and Dead Can Dance LPs.

Sissy Spacek - Disfathom LP (Helicopter)
Rakta - III LP (Iron Lung)
Altarage - Nihil LP (Doomentia)
Cthe'ilist - Le Dernier Crépuscule DLP (Profound Lore)
Virus - Memento Collider LP (Karisma)
Intensive Care - This Is Exactly Who You Are EP (Iron Lung)
Fange - Purge LP (Throatruiner)
Abhomine - Larvae Offal Swine LP (Hells Headbangers)
P.O.W. - Rot EP (Iron Bonehead)
Dagger Lust - Aggramica CS (Vrasubatlat)

This was an ambitious year in terms of the amount releases for NA and there are still a few records currently in production that have slipped through my fingers. Those will be out in the coming weeks as well as some really compelling projects in the coming year. 

Good riddance to the past 12 months. 
cheers: aaron

The Wayward 'Plutonic" LP Available Now

Long running prog/noise-rock weirdos The Wayward return from a three year hiatus with their newest full length LP via Nerve Altar just after coming off a successful string of East Coast dates with Radiation Blackbody. Recorded by guitarist Nick Skrobicz (also of Multicult), Plutonic showcases the group’s unique take on aggressive heft and singular proficiency that they’ve been perfecting over the course of their more than decade long tenure of relentless DIY touring and recording.

Album description:
“Baltimore’s discordant riff manglers return with their fourth full length offering. A dense rhythmic labyrinth of serpentine ferocity punctuated with spidery guitar sophistication. Singular songwriting ingenuity that demonstrates aggressive skronk dexterity while maintaining an aptitude for unique melody.”

CHEPANG "Lathi Charge" EP Available Now!

Pulverizing “Immigrindcore” from Nepali immigrants now living in the US. Chepang’s name is taken from the lowest caste in their native country, a formerly nomadic people who have been neglected and derided by their people and government. Their first missive, Lathi Charge, which actually translates to the brute force used by riot police to disperse crowds, unleashes the raw fury and disdain of a people suffering centuries of neglect and oppression.

ALTAR28 - Front & Back




"Chepang offer an absolutely bone-crushing take on modern grindcore that sees clever emulsions of several niche subgenres creep into the mix including goregrind, crust, noise rock, powerviolence, and more. The overall output is an exciting and pointedly profound take on the genre that should be turning a lot of heads in the weeks and months to come." http://blowthescene.com

Extremely proud to announce the 25th NA release, Disrotted second LP "Divination". Available to buy or download now.
“A megalith of churning black filth spews oblivion that slowly creeps into the minds of men, breathing the stench of hopeless dread from an ancient crumbling death factory. Unspeakable atrocities cascading down amidst the carrion haze of blank humanity forever drowning in a murky chasm. Ceaseless and unbound.”
