A little retrospective of the last year.



2016 first release was the astonishing 4th album of RORCAL, the fantastic CREON. It was a real honor for us to collaborate in unleashing such a gigantic master piece of black art. It is rare to listen to such a complete work of art nowadays, their unique blend of black metal, doom & drone has reached a level beyond human understanding.







Then it was time to do what we wanted to do for years: sign a ROCK band. And this happened in the form of CHARLES IN THE KITCHEN, this huge groove machine. The idea was to enlarge our roster with different music styles. After having worked with hardcore, post-metal, doom, sludge, grind, black and stoner bands, we were ready to dive one step further and propose a pure rock band. We first released a brilliant 7” ep as single of their upcoming album. This first song has been on heavy rotation on Swiss radio, which is a real achievement for us! We are proud and happy! Then, after the summer, we released the full-length and the truth is that SLICE, COOK, TASTE & THRILL is one of the best modern rock albums we’ve heard in years. Well done, guys! 







One more record slot was open for this year, and we decided that after rock, it was worth to get back to some gloomy violence. That’s why we signed CHARLENE BERETAH for the release of their first ep, mixing with no shame doom, crust and black metal. And Jesus, it felt right to do something that nasty & that primitive!




Don't forget that you can order any of these albums on our ONLINE SHOP, we ship worldwide!

Next year will be full of releases, some of our mightiest heroes are returning, and we will continue to introduce you new bands as well.
Thank you for your interest, because if no one buys records, we simply can’t go on. So, sincerely, thank you for your trust!

CHARLES IN THE KITCHEN SINGLE RELEASED TODAY

Today is the day as the gorgeous new 7" single from CHARLES IN THE KITCHEN is now available worldwide. 

Order 7" here.
Download the two song single FOR FREE here.



Besides, tonight we're throwing a party in order to celebrate this awesome single, come play madness!!



Now let's here what the band has to say about this new release:



We were finishing writing the songs (nfr: for their second album) last fall and were discussing the release options with the guys at Division. It was too short for an album release before the summer. Someone then said, “Why not release just 1 or 2 songs first?” Someone else added “On a 7” single!” Old school as fuck, but fresh.” The first song of the 7”, and single “The Spleen Controversy” is a track that the band considers to be “the most danceable song of the album”, with a contagious groove and rhythm that are rightly complemented with vocals that jump up and down, the unceasing energetic vibe and the dramatic weight that parades from time to time, the two spectacularly intertwined. “A sort of 70s dancy-soul-rock song whose line was inspired by let’s call it “the approximate memory of a video game jingle of the 80s”. Not kidding! The bass line, on which the whole song is built, was even composed on a gipsy guitar,” explains the band. 

For the second side of the 7” they wanted, “something special, something we would never do otherwise, something we might never do again.” Remember 1993 electronica-clubby-pop hit “Sweet Harmony” by UK’s The Beloved? Yeah… they did something special alright. There’s no relation between the song and Charles In The Kitchen, but they wanted something different and special. For reasons they try to ignore, the idea came from the singer that had been dreaming singing the song. The only rule was “it had to be rock and therefore be recorded using only our instruments”.  The song has also a special participation of Lisa-Marie Boux, responsible for all the sweetness that enables an unhealthy addiction.
