Metalcore super-heroes ARCHITECTS released their 2nd album "Ruin" back in 2007. It was a CD-only release and got its first vinyl pressing in 2015 by Century Media Records. Now, 5 years later its like impossible to get your hands on one of those colored vinyl copies. So this is always our call: Bring the gems back and give the fans a chance to snag a copy for a reasonable price.
Floridas melodic-hardcore act EVERGREEN TERRACE released an aggressive new school hardcore album in 2002, followed by uncountable tours and live shows all around the globe. Eulogy Recordings and Alveran put out a CD edition, followed by a vinyl pressing of 500 copies in 2009 (Mind Over Matter Records). We are happy to announce a re-pressing of just 300 copies on colored vinyl.
Evergreen Terrace "Sincerty Is An Easy Disguise In This Business" LP
After 2 albums + 1 cover album EVERGREEN TERRACE recorded "Sincerty Is An Easy Disguise In This Business". It's an album great songs, full of creativity, powerful guitars and strong lyrics. It was released in 2005 as - hold on! - CD-only version and was never released on vinyl. Beside the fact, that we at BBR love the music of Evergreen Terrace, it's nothing but just AWESOME to do the first-time-ever vinyl pressing of this stunner of an album! Good things come to those who wait.
This is something extraordinary. VILDHJARTA are a band that dives deep into a mix of death metal, progressive metal, and djent. Founded in 2005 the band startet to spread demos around the internet, made it to the 2010 edition of the famous Euroblast Festival and snagged a deal with Century Media Records. The debut album "Masstaden" dropped in 2011, followed by the "Thousands Of Evils" EP in 2013. It sold out quickley and is a hard-to-find and expensive collectors item now. That was the last physical output so far. The band announced a new album to be released in 2020. We are looking forward to hear the new stuff, to shorten the waiting time we decided to re-press "Thousands Of Evils"
At the beginning of 2019 the two longtime friends Martin Schultz (Blank, Null Art) and Markus Münch (Baffdecks, Bone Idles) finally found the time to start a band together, Hard Strike was born. After the first 2 songs were written, Markus contacted his old bandmate Maurice Müller (Bone Idles) for the drums and Martin his friend Dan Africa (Punch, I Recover) for the bass. As it became clear that a second guitar would advance the sound, Martin contacted Ken Olden (Battery, Better Than A Thousand) with whom he had become friends in recent years. After he gave him the first ideas, Hard Strike was complete.
Despite the distance, Hard Strike managed to record 4 songs in different recording sessions in Karlsruhe, Cologne and DC. Mixed and mastered by Mike Schleibaum (Darkest Hour). Gonna be released on a 7inch. These 4 songs are a tribute to the hardcore sound of the late 80's and early 90's.
Limited first pressing of 300 copies on clear vinyl. Street date feb. 28th 2020.
Londons very own Djent/Modern Metal band MONUMENTS was founded in 2009. Quickly they made it to a record deal with Century Media and put out an awesome debut album in 2012. After line-up changes "The Amanuesis" dropped in 2014. It was the bands 2nd full length album and the first one with former PERIPHERY member Christopher Barretto on the mic. Lyrics inspired by David Mitchells book "Cloud Atlas" and an incredible level of technique, gambling around with Metalcore, Djent and Modern Metal, marks the bands position as top-notch act! Touring the world continuously, the band has a huge fellowship around the planet.
We signed a licensing deal with Century Media for a 500 copies vinyl repressing of "The Amanuensis". The prices for the original pressings went crazy and the market is e-m-p-t-y! Time to fill the gap, your chance to snatch a copy of this gem.
500 copies in total. 100 x milky clear. 400 x magenta w/ black marble effect. Street date is 18. April 2020.
