LBR     024     RUFF MAJIK              TARN                            LP      05.2019

2019 album by South African band Ruff Majik. In a small, secluded mining town in
rural South Africa, three friends heard the call of the void, and spat fuzz back
at it. Thus, Ruff Majik was born, and the adventure of sex, drugs and mostly
rock'n'roll began. Ruff Majik set sail to Pretoria, South Africa, where they've
become infamous for their lively shows and aggressive on stage persona. With their
brand of what they call "stoner rock/sludge'n'roll" they move between slow grooves
and breakneck speeds in the blink of an eye, with live shows being described as
"whiplash inducing". Consisting of three members, Johni Holiday, Jimmy Glass and
Ben Manchino make up The Atomic Trinity, the relentless noise machine that is Ruff
Majik (blessed be the name).

LBR     025     DO                      ASTRAL DEATH CULT               LP      10.2019

Dö is a riff-praising, cosmos-worshipping trio from Helsinki, Finland. This vicious
death cult lead by Big Dog (guitar), Joe E. Deliverance (drums) and Deaf Hank (vox
& bass) feeds on dark astral energy and compresses it into what they call "doomer"
- a unique northern mix of stoner, doom, sludge, and psychedelic elements with hints
of death/black metal. 'Astral Death Cult' is Dö's second LP. Just like the previous
productions, drums, guitar and bass for were recorded live to get the genuine trio
dynamics on each track. The result is an album that collides earthy northern tones,
riffs heavy as a neutron star and lyrics that praise the great cosmic forces.

LBR     026     ONHOU                   ENDLING                         LP      11.2019

Onhou is a Dutch sludge/doom metal band formed in Groningen, consisting of (ex)members
from Ortega, Grinding Halt and Wolvon. The four piece scrutinizes dark territories,
devising an immense sound utilizing two vocalists, downtuned guitars and pulsating
electronic elements. These bleak atmospheres serve to shape a dismal and forsaken
uneasiness. After a well received EP released by Tartarus Records in 2018, Onhou
returned to the studio to record their first full-length titled 'Endling', on which
they are expanding on the hopelessness of their arduous sound, fighting against the
inevitable. 'Endling' will find you dragged into discomfort with ONHOU's bulking
riffs, dark electronics and thundering rhythms. One can try to find reason or refuge,
waging a war with all of your might while it burns the heart out of you. But one will
only find loss, without a trace of existence. There is no legacy. There will be no
judgment. This is 'Endling'.

'Scarlet' is the 2020 album from Spanish sludge rock trio Rosy Finch. Their take on
the stoner genre is a furious and eclectic blend of influences ranging from Sonic
Youth to the Melvins, showcasing brooding and atmospheric vocals laced with insidious
and heavy riffs. Rosy Finch breaks out of the mould and take the listeners on a
completely different path than the one usually expected from a band of this genre.

The group was formed in 2017 by guitarist Sean Bilovecky (formerly of now defunct
Man's Ruin recording artists Disengage) and vocalist Gwyn Strang , a singer with an
alluring voice and an equally compelling flair for imagery.

Repress of 250 copies on black vinyl. Cooking up a gumbo of heavy '70s, blues and
psychedelic rock, RRRags impress with raw energy and heavy weight in their live
delivery. Guitarist Ron Van Herpen (Astrosoniq, Molasses, TDB), bassist Rob Zim
(The Lords of Altamont) and singer/drummer Rob Martin (Bliksem) joined forces in
September 2017. They had their live debut at Roadburn 2018, presenting their first
record which contains six resonating, heavy rock songs. Over the following year,
RRRags built up a strong live reputation with their jam infused but songbased
performances, culminating in two well received Belgian support shows with Monster
Magnet. RRRags' groundwork is based on bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Budgie and
Blue Cheer, with a personal signature of a hard driving sound, soulful vocals,
rumbling instrumentation and strong melodies. Their second album is masterfully
produced from start to finish by Marcel Van De Vondervoort (Astrosoniq, Roadburn).

ICP Orchestra, The Nels Cline Singers and instrumental Black Flag in their spontaneous
improvisations. All Atlanta performances are completely and strictly improvised.
The band refuses to play on a stage and prefers not to use the PA. Atlanta is all
about electricity, communication and energy between the band members and the audience.

LBR     032     SOOTHSAYER ORCHESTRA    SOOTHSAYER ORCHESTRA            LP      01.2021

Born in the early '80s in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, Pieter
Hendriks was at a young age introduced to play instruments by his parents. Their
large record collection, got him hooked on a wide range of music . Early '90s the
big city called and introduced Pieter to new music and horizons. At the age of 15,
he started touring in various punk and hardcore bands across the globe. Long drives
in shitty vans to play in squats in faraway countries was a reality check and shaped
character. Years of touring the world were followed by a move to Eindhoven that
culminated in 2015 in setting up a home studio. Here he started recording songs by
himself. Pieter is a musical solitudinarian who has enough gumption to leave the
commonplace behind and only take with him what can enrich his music and performance.
There is a certain weight of tragedy in his music. His gravelly voice possesses
sometimes an uneasy moodiness that reflects doom and despair. It immerses you in
the dark side of life. Then, amidst this darkness Soothsayer compositions shift to
new found hope. Warm and flowing, creating a longing, yet bold mood. Especially in
a live performance, with the backing of a band who got their routine down, Pieter
Hendriks' songs come to peak dramatically. For self titled debut album, most lyrics
and song ideas were written in an old caravan in the middle of the dark forest of
the Eifel in Germany. Pieter isolated himself there without a phone and TV. Just
loneliness and silence to focus on his music. All these roads resulted in this self
titled Soothsayer Orchestra debut album, released by Lay Bare Recordings.
Dark Americana, folk noir and apocalyptic blues for fans of Wovenhand, Mark Lanegan
and Nick Cave. Limited to 250 copies.
