Grave Upheaval “No Title” DLP
ANTI-GOTH 242

Die hard version with bonus track, wood slipcase, 36″x50″ tapestry, and sticker is out now. Regular black vinyl version will be out next week.










(Description by J. Campbell)
Grave Upheaval’s debut LP is far more than a mere extrapolation of the work featured on the band’s exceptional 2010 demo and its two subsequent split EPs. Listening to this LP cannot be a passive experience; Grave Upheaval constructs an environment within which the listener is subsumed. The tracks on this album are ominous and oppressive. Inverted tempos and deliberately washed out production contribute to the creation of what may arguably be the most atmospheric Death Metal album to date. Stylistically, Grave Upheaval belongs to the camp of Australian bands that includes Portal, Impetuous Ritual, and their progeny. While those bands tend to exhibit a certain technical virtuosity that occasionally renders the music uncomfortably abstruse to more orthodox listeners, Grave Upheaval revel less in technicality and more in the cavernous darkness of impenetrable walls of repetitious and discordant guitars. The accentuation of ambience rather than technique is Grave Upheaval’s greatest strength and makes the music immediately arresting to the listener without the need to engage in repeat listens before it even begins to set in. The songwriting and performance on the album is primal and severe, while the exquisitely disorienting haze in which the songs are drenched produces a hallucinatory effect. Forms emerge and retreat into the sonic miasma producing a textural richness rarely achieved in Death Metal. As with the band’s prior releases, the presentation and conceptual underpinnings of the band’s work are obscure – alluring, but always remaining just out of the reach of cognition. The album and the tracks on it are nameless and the photographic artwork adorning the release is evocative and abstract. The standard version of the release contains three LP sides of music and is encased in a gatefold jacket featuring an 8-page 12” x 12” booklet adhered to the right gatefold panel. The Die Hard edition features a fourth side containing an additional track as well as a wooden slipcover branded with the Grave Upheaval sigil, 36″ x 50″ tapestry, and sticker.

======================================================================================================================

Set “Upheaval of Unholy Darkness” LP
ANTI-GOTH 252





In 2008, Set released a CDR demo entitled, “Dominus Profanum,” that, due to the limited quantity in which it was produced, initially failed to generate the interest that the recording deserved. For the initiated, however, it was immediately apparent that Set would soon be recognized as a powerful current within the U.S. Black Metal underground. Immediately upon hearing the demo, YK contacted the prolific C. Davis/Drathrul, well known for his work with bands such as Hour of 13, Anu, Profane Grace, Demoncy, and Subklinik, to name a few. To further spread the darkness evoked by the “Dominus Profanum” recording, NWN! released a cassette version of the demo. Despite the promising nature of the demo, Set would be unable to record a proper full-length until earlier this year when the band delivered its debut full-length recording, “Upheaval of Unholy Darkness.” The five-year interval between the two releases, though it left fans of the band disappointed, only sharpened the edges of Set’s sound, and the quality of this debut more than compensates for the delay in its arrival. Like Demoncy, a band with which Davis has been affiliated, Set creates an oppressive atmosphere while still maintaining a delivery that is incisive and violent—a balance rarely achieved as expertly as it is on “Upheaval of Unholy Darkness.” Set’s atmospheric sensibilities are informed, no doubt, by Davis’ noise and industrial work in Subklinik and Torturecide while Davis’ excellent songwriting and riff management skills are clear from the Metal portion of his superb and diverse résumé. The accretion of Davis’ myriad influences into a stylized yet traditional sound is impressive and culminates, here, in Set’s extraordinary debut LP.

First pressing of 250 copies on black vinyl. All copies with patch and sticker.

======================================================================================================================

This design was too good so I opted to print both black, white and reprint the Raglan shirts from May. I'll have some of these for sale at the Stargazer/Knelt Rote gig tonight.

Available in sizes S to XXL. Some sizes are already getting very low so be quick.

Black September shirts are discharge ink printed on Gildan brand TS:


White September shirts are plastisol printed on Gildan brand TS:


May Raglan 3/4 sleeve TS Reprint:




Impending doom of the Sabbatical Earlyearslaught Boxset...

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

Grave Upheaval are easily one of the best dark death metal bands around. Will pick it up for sure!

Can't wait to hear this one.

I wouldn't normally comment, since it's your business how you do your releases, but I do find it frustrating that the extra track is only on the die-hard. Surely it's either part of the album or not. Will there be a CD version with that extra track on?

The Grave Upheaval record at Iron Bonehead probably is the regular version I assume ?
