Massive update!

Jun 05 2014   

I. Yautja CD + re-press
We have pressed a CD version of “Songs of Descent” because the dudes continue to burn rubber throughout the United States, touring their asses off. Also, we just got a re-press of LPs in on black vinyl. The freaks just ended a 26th day tour this past week, and guess what they decided to do now that they are home? Go out for a weekend jaunt tomorrow! Oh, and be sure to check them out at the stacked Southern Darkness Festival!

6/6 – Dayton, OH @ Blind Bob’s Bar w/ Mouth of the Architect
6/7 – Covington, KY @ Backstage Cafe
6/8 – Erie, PA @ Basement Transmissions w/ Eyehategod, Ringworm, Enabler, and Homewrecker

 

II. Windhand re-press and CD

After numerous test press rejections (and a lot of back and forth) we finally have this re-press rolling forward. The CDs came in a couple weeks back and the LPs are shipping out to us next week. This pressing is on Halloween orange vinyl. For the first time ever we will be having Hammerheart exclusively distribute the record in Europe with Revolver USA / Midheaven and Ebullition continuing U.S. Distribution. The band is taking some much needed R&R this summer but I expect you will be hearing from them when they get back on the road later this year!

 

III. Ruine reviews

We only have 15 of the red vinyl left. Trust me, once the band records their upcoming LP they are going to blow the fuck up…the material is too good! Get this demo now, because much like that one so called “savior” once it’s gone it will never be coming back! Below are some reviews:

“SLUDGE SUPERGROUP RUINE IS UGLY, SLOW, AND YOU’RE GONNA LOVE IT…It turns out that if you mix members of speed-demon-grindcore freaks Magrudergrind with crusty-black-metallers Mutilation Rites, you don’t get a band that blasts at 10000 BPM. Instead the newly formed band will turn up and tune down to make the ugliest music imaginable. Enter Ruine, a new project that digs into Grief-like doom-hatred on the Winter 2014 demo…Tune down, light up, and nod your head to this. Fuckin’ ugly.” – Noisey
“Not only is this some filthy degenerate-style elephants marching shit, but it repeatedly takes sharp right turns in ways that are at once unexpected and completely organic. It’s both unsettling and invigorating.” – MetalSucks

“Regression” is slow, titanic, and crushing. It moves like a magma flow, enormous fuzz-bombed riffs and boulder-like drum beats engulfing whatever frail things lie in their path. The vocals veer from horrifying shrieks to hoarse roars. It’s massive sludge/doom that will eventually get your head moving hard while you worry about your future.” – No Clean Singing
“Ruine is purely evil, crushing–nay devastating–sludgy doom metal. I mean, this is fucking mean.” – American Aftermath
“We conclude with Ruine, a new group that combines members of black metal heathens Mutilation Rites and grindcore freaks Magrudergrind in a combo that … isn’t nearly as fast as you might think from who’s involved. But that’s not a negative whatsoever, as this group is an awesome, sludgy, miserable unit that could make you want to step into traffic after a bad day. The two songs on their “Winter 2014” 7-inch release are drubbing, crushing, and full of darkness, and these guys have a pretty interesting thing going on here that I’m curious to hear more of as they work their way into the future.

We kick off with “Decades of Sorrow,” a trudging dose of black doom, where George Paul’s vocals are instantly recognizable and as shrouded in mystery as they are on Mutilation Rites albums. The track is wholly violent, but there are melodies that run through it as well, giving it a weird glistening that makes you tilt your head. The back end is riffy as hell, with Avi Kulawy joining with Paul to shred you and sting your ear drums. “Regression” is slow driving and ugly, with Justin Ennis’ drums setting a devious pace that instills evil into the track. The vocals are just not human, as they sound like shrieks of pain that no living being could replicate or comprehend, and the music is thrashy, mucky, and keeps clubbing and threatening right until it ends, finally giving you mercy. This is one hell of a bruising band, and whatever they do in the future we will consume with great interest.” – Meat, Mead, and Metal
“Soul-crushing, bleak, filthy and mean sludge metal. These cats ain’t fucking around. It’s a 7” and only two songs on it, and each one uses every iota of available wax to punish you (you probably deserve it). One mean riff piled atop another with no hope of ever coming up for air. This is not a bad start for a new (I’m pretty sure they are new anyway) band. I’m very interested in hearing more, I’m a glutton for punishment.” – Hex Records

 

IV. Upcoming projects

Going to be busy next few months for sure.

Finally Bastard Sapling returns with their long awaited follow up to their debut LP ‘Dragged From our Restless Trance’! We teamed up with Gilead Media on this one and I think I can speak for all parties involved in saying we couldn’t have been happier with the results. ‘Instinct is Forever’ showcases the band truly hitting what I feel is their pinnacle in songwriting. An excellently crafted journey that never feels monotonous or stale, that seamlessly flows from some of the most unadulterated brutal moments into some of the most cathartic moments (sometimes within the same song). Recorded by one of my favorite engineers and even better friend Kevin Bernsten (Triac, Mutilation Rites, Ilsa) at Developing Nations in Baltimore, MD…oh so fittingly over the course of the 2014 Polar Vortex. The band is teaming up with Inter Arma for a string of dates around Gilead Fest in July, the dates are listed below.

A cassette release from Richmond, VA’s crushing (yet at times melodic) d-beat metallic hardcore outfit Prisoner is slated for a July 9th release. Let this three song cassette EP serve not only as your introduction to these Richmond upstarts, but as a warning shot across the bow. Although having formed in only 2012, this cast of misanthropic miscreants have been honing their craft in basements, kitchens, and dive bars across America for the better part of the last decade with members having served tours of duty in past and present Richmond acts like Balaclava, Inter Arma, and Animal Magazine. Prisoner has one foot rooted firmly in the school of dark and crusty metallic hardcore (a la His Hero is Gone, Tragedy and Cursed) but to call them just a “dark and crusty metallic hardcore band” would be a slight, because Prisoner is so much more. Ferocious, d-beat driven, metallic hardcore gives way to moments of post-metal inspired heaviness. On songs like “Vacuum” Prisoner hammer the listener with sludgy, gloomy hardcore before weaving their way into more sinister territory, at times even employing a moody dissonance normally found in left-of-center black metal bands. Prisoner have without question forged all of their influences into one solid, vicious and well crafted mission statement.

We are also hard at work on two releases this coming fall. First we have debut LP from Richmond, VA punk-tinged black metal upstarts Unsacred ‘False Light’. The band recorded last week with Ricky Olson (Unholy Thoughts) and are now in the process of mixing with Bryan Walthall (RPG, The Catalyst) and Ricky Olson at Big Dawg Little Dawg Studios in Richmond, VA. We should have more details very soon on this September release. Also currently on the knob twirling docket is the long awaited solo album of Windhand front woman Dorthia Cottrell. Her debut was recorded just before Windhand’s European tour with Daniel Deckelman at Snake Oil Recording Studio and we are hoping to have final mixes off to master by mid June. Expect an October street date.

I. YAUTJA

YAUTJA_cover_promo_med

Songs of Descent is out now!  Weather delayed the project a bit so we are about a week and a half behind with Revolver USA / Midhaven Mailorder and Ebulltion but both should have the record stocked and ready to ship by the 24th of February.  I am extremely sorry about an inconvenience this may cause.  If you are interested in placing a wholesale order direct just get in touch at forcefieldrecords@gmail.com.  The band is currently wrapping up an east coast tour with plans to head out March 8th – 16th for a trip to Austin and back followed by a full US tour in May that will include some dates with new ex Gaza upstarts Cult Leader (Deathwish Inc.).

The band has a few tracks streaming including Concrete Tongue, Faith Resigned, and Denihilist.

Here are a few things people are saying about the album.

“YAUTJA IS ONE OF THE BEST NEW HEAVY BANDS YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF…Yautja incorporate imperial sludge riffs ala Neurosis with grind, math, crust and more. You’d think a mish-mash of influence like that would be jarring, but Yautja feels a lot more organic than their description leads on. Especially live. Where they rip. Think Inter Arma without the southern bent and with more grind instead of black metal.” – Vice / Noisey

“But if you can nail that sweet spot, just between a freight train with its brakes cut and a drunkard going over Niagara Falls in a barrel, the results can be explosively satisfying. Because after all, who wouldn’t want to hear a mosh riff that’s been kidnapped by the AmRep roster and fed a bunch of drugs?” – Invisible Oranges

“…relentlessly heavy, tough as nails, and eventually storming with fury. The band just destroys everything in its wake, with feedback wailing and aiming to cut flesh, guitars soaring into the stratosphere, and a killer instinct.” – Meat, Mead, Metal

“The band sounds as meaty and menacing on one-minute chunks of flesh as they do on [their] lengthier jawbreak­ers…” – Decibel Magazine

“essential listening for those who would seek to escape the confines of safe heavy music.” – RVA Magazine

“Songs of Descent isn’t Yautja simply purveying the medium of heavy music to channel their sonic malice. These songs show a band unencumbered by influential limitations and consequently unhinged in a brutality that’s both brilliant and downright merciless.” – Steel for Brains

“8/10…the trio are on the cusp of being the next greatest act to blow up the death- and grind-infused hardcore sound waves. Debut LP Songs of Descent is sure to push them over the edge.” – Exclaim!

“the word on the street is that this is one of the best new heavy records out there” – Pirates Press

Lastly here is their set in Brooklyn courtesy of Pit Full of Shit.

II. RUINE

Ruine14_0002

PURE FUCKING HATE set to a colossal sludge backdrop. Prepare to be pulverized into dust. Ruine (comprised of whiskey-soaked deviants from Magrudergrind and Mutilation Rites) want you to suffer. Ruine want you dead. These two venomous, bludgeoning tracks of unadulterated hatred will pummel you straight into the abyss. This is one hell of an introduction to a soon-to-be stalwart of the sludge/doom metal world and we are beyond stoked to be bringing you this abomination. Let this 7” be the soundtrack to the end of your weak, pathetic life.  Pre-orders are up now in the web-store, shooting for a late March finish date.  You can stream both tracks courtesy of Vice / Noisey and Pitchfork.

III. ARGENTINUM ASTRUM

DSC_7516

We were fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to help with Argentinum Astrum’s new record and first effort as a three piece.  We have known these guys (and gal) for a long time and it really was a perfect storm as far our partnership went.  The band recently played record release shows in Richmond (picture above courtesy of Tony Lynch) and Knoxville.  We only have a limited amount of copies available in our web-store so move quick.  Two of the three tracks can be streamed via Cvlt Nation and Pitchfork.

___________________________________________________________________

IV. WINDHAND

 Windhand are currently gearing up for a string of dates around SXSW and then a European tour around Roadburn, once back home they will be making an appearance at Maryland Death Fest.  We recently did a small re-press of 150 on clear with purple tint vinyl that is limited to the band’s March tour (50) and Revolver USA / Midhaven mail-order (100), the jackets and inserts will be mixed from various previous pressings as we use up old stock.  We also have another re-press in production that will be on orange vinyl.

VI. UPCOMING

2014 will be one of the busiest years in Forcefield’s existence.  This July we will be releasing Bastard Sapling’s sophomore DLP in conjunction with Gilead Media.  The band recently finished recording at Developing Nations in Baltimore, MD with Kevin Bernsten (Ilsa, Triac, Mutilation Rites, Magrudergrind), conveniently enough during the polar vortex of 2014.  Following that we will be releasing the debut solo LP of Dorthia Cottrell (Windhand) this August which is currently in the tracking process at Snake Oil Recording in Richmond, VA.  Also on the docket will be debut LPs Organ Donor and Unsacred.  We hope to keep plugging a long and announce more records in the coming months.  Forcefield is thirsty for more, please drink with us.
