Odoacer - There The Vultures Will Gather 04.09.20 · Church Road Records · CRR009
Odoacer is a new one-man Black Metal band from the U.K. offering their own brand of suicidal/atmospheric Black Metal. That being said, don't think for a second this is another Xasthur/Leviathan clone. Odoacer have fused the stark soundscapes of the aforementioned artists into their own unique beast. It's incredible to hear an artist come out the gate with such a cohesive and engaging record.
Svalbard - When I Die, Will I Get Better?25.09.20 · Church Road Records · CRR0013
Each track tells a tale, putting one topic or one incident under vocalist and lyricist, Serena Cherry’s thoughtful gaze; she picks at the scabs to reveal another raw piece of the overall creative puzzle beneath. Written across several months in 2019 and early 2020 the chronology takes a myriad of twists and turns, through inner turmoil, personal reflection, and external observations. Inspiration is spun out of the day-to-day as much as it is out of extreme moments of anguish or clarity. With themes of sexism, misogyny, abuse and mental health at the core of the oeuvre, When I Die, Will I Get Better? is a shadowy ride through the author’s psyche.
Palm Reader - Sleepless27.11.20 · Church Road Records · CRR014
Sleepless’ marks yet another sonic evolution for the Nottingham-based quintet; every successive release, from 2013’s ‘Bad Weather’ to 2018’s critically acclaimed ‘Braille’, has shown progression, each album building upon the last without ever compromising the band’s ideals. The progression of Palm Reader’s career has been nothing short of breath-taking; from their humble beginnings playing house shows in the sleepy commuter towns of Surrey, to supporting Glassjaw at the world-renowned O2 Brixton Academy. If it’s not already abundantly clear at this point that this band possesses something special, then Palm Reader in 2020 are poised to indelibly mark themselves out as expert purveyors of their craft. This success did not come without hard work and incredible musical talent, of course. The band have been honing their sound tirelessly over the years through three critically acclaimed albums, fighting tooth and nail to win over fans around the world by playing festivals such as Download, Pukkelpop, and Greenfield (to name but a few). The band’s ferocious live show has garnered stellar critical acclaim and a loyal and dedicated fanbase. Theirs is a hard-won reverence that has posited them as bonafide contenders for modern metal and the underground at large’s title for most revered band.
Respire - Black Line 04.12.20 · Church Road Records · CRR012
Written over two years and produced over six months, Black Line finds Respire turning away from the sickness of the self and onto the sickness ailing the world.
