More Conspiries for 2015

It's only February and there are already three new releases on Nerve Altar. A wiser man would slow down and take stock of the situation but the release schedule for the rest of 2015 would suggest otherwise, The Doctor laughs at your feeble mind!

Look forward to new records from Overviolence from Sweden, Aussies maniacs Pregnancy demo on vinyl and the long awaited Column of Heaven/Suffering Luna split LP. Going to the plant now is the Healer EP and the masters and art just came in for the new TRIAC / Sacridose split EP, which is total ripper!

Kill the children. Take the money. It's a modern time!

Haapoja/Dephosphorus "Collaboration" LP Out Now!

The new split LP by Happoja and Dephosphorus is finally available in the Nerve Altar store and to stream on the bandcamp page.

Promo barf:

So a band from Greece and a band from Finland walk into a bar...okay, not really, but Greece's Astro Grinders Dephosphorus and Finland's rising stars of the Unparalled Sense of Violent Groove have teamed up to release "Collaboration" LP - a nine song, discordantly brutal masterpiece that explores the more tortured, emotional and existential side of the contemporary extreme underground.  But don't worry, it still totally grinds and pummels (and there's even a slow jam for grandma!)

Far more than a mere split, this is a trve kvlt collab: each band exchanged singers on each opening song and guitarists – AND the solo by Haapoja’s Pekka Kivela on Dephosphorus' Shades of Reality, is dedicated to the late Jeff Hanneman.

Dephosphorus hail from Athens, Greece and play a unique musical style known as astrogrind: they endorse a cosmic, mind expanding aesthetic, striving to forge a creative damage path through the underground scene.

With “Collaboration LP,” Dephosphorus return hot on the heels of 2014’s “Ravenous Solemnity” with 5 tracks of their signature hybrid of grind, thrash and underground delights.  Vocals dragged from the corpse of just-dead banshee, a multi-verse of blast-beats and glorious riffs that seize you like a rabid bear hug.

On the other side of the wax we have Finland’s Haapoja, who bring a bit more of a blackened approach to their fierce renditions.  Contributing 4 tracks to the “Collaboration LP”, Haapoja return to form heard on their 2011 and 2013 lps, spitting angular, befowled and almost mathy riffs over nuclear-clock precision beats and raw-throated howls.

Borrowing musical sensibilities from black metal, hardcore, thrash and grindcore, Haapoja expound on themes of existential and cosmic plights – man lost in an unknowable universe with nothing but a few bleak stars to guide him.

Viral Graphics is responsible the stunning artwork, and the wax comes with a lyrics insert printed on gorgeous cardstock, with reverse board/uncoated paper jackets.

Available as a digital download directly from the bands, and on limited 180 gm vinyl from Handshake Inc. 7degrees Records and Nerve Altar!

ALTAR12 - Haapoja/Dephosphorus :Collaboration" LP


Radiation Blackbody "Maximum Entropy and the Nearly Black Object" 7" EP Available Now

Instrumental bass and drum grind prog duo comprising members of Defeatist/Anodyne alienate and demoralize with mathematic intention. Four new compositions likening to a monolithic figure floating in cold dead infinite space that is unable and unwilling to communicate. This release sees the duo expanding their sonic palette in terms of melody and tempo. Caustic mid tempo dirges erupt and ooze like an infected wound to lure the listener before violating them again with unrelenting blastbeat assaults. Masterful execution of repulsive rhythms from the intergalactic gutter.

Available now from Nerve Altar mail order or name your price download from the bandcamp site.
