preorder: Death Engine - Mud LP



Mud LP

The debut full-length from DEATH ENGINE is now up for preorder and free download. The record comes on 180 gram vinyl (100x ultraclear & 400x black) and is housed in a heavy jacket with inside-out print. This is a co-release with Throatruiner Records from France. All orders will ship before March 2nd.

Following the release of their abrasive debut EP 'Amen', DEATH ENGINE made a brutal entrance in 2013 with a couple of European tours – a string of infernal outbreaks that have little in common with your average live show. The now four-piece from Lorient, France spent most of 2014 working on their debut album 'Mud', which was once again recorded by Amaury Sauvé at La Senelle and mastered by Sylvain Biguet.

Behind their ascetic, less-is-more work ethic, DEATH ENGINE's sound remains evasive – oscillating between dark, desperate noise rock and metallic downpours of petrifying violence, bleak shoegazing guitar work and gigantic industrial dirges, cathartic climaxes and merciless tribal-ritual rhythms that could last forever. 'Mud' features seven new tracks that deliver the coup de grâce, exploring new fields while still pushing the band’s trademark visceral tension to unreachable highs.

Breach - Venom 2xLP



Venom

The circle is nearly complete: Apocaplexy lastly releases Breach's infamous album 'Venom' on vinyl. Originally released by longtime conspirators Burning Heart closely prior the new millennium it is probably the bands most well received work. Through a connection to Neurosis it even saw a US licensing by Relapse Records. This deal wasn't built to endure for a long period. About the time Relapse started to show bigger interest in working closely with Breach, the band and it’s internal relations started to deteriorate.

'Venom' was the breaking point for Breach. The steps away from the classical hardcore into a heavier, darker and more complex approach were taken slowly but steady – 'Venom' was the defining moment for what this band was capable of and what made them so unique. The heavy riffing, meditative and almost tribal rhythms, the overall claustrophobic atmosphere alongside the trademark vocals and apocalyptic lyrics made this record one of a kind. This record even brought a full-on music video in form of the instrumental 'Diablo' with airplay on global music programs. Still Breach unfortunately only made a small impact in the overall picture of heavy music, only gaining a small circle of loyal fans. Over the years this group of loyal admirers grew in numbers and Breach's influence on contemporary heavy music is unmistakable – and 'Venom' was the main reason for this.

Now for the first time in years the record will be available on vinyl again. After bringing 'Godbox' and 'Kollapse' to vinyl, Apocaplexy is proud to announce the second coming of 'Venom' in it’s full glory, licensed by Epitaph Europe, remastered by Karl Daniel Lidén, cut on 45rpm, pressed on 180g vinyl and with a newly designed LP artwork by Pierre Johansson, which is printed full colour & Pantone on heavy gatefold jackets.

Death Engine (2k15)

Last november, I saw DEATH ENGINE on their Amen Tour in Leipzig and was totally blown away. I didn't see such an intense three-piece noise band since ages, to be exact: since flu.ID broke up. These french dudes play some kind of violent & obscure noise/hardcore with brutal riffs, cutthroat vocals and a really really outstanding ritualistic-hypnotic drumming. An awesome live band, which already released a four-track 10" EP.

I'm happy to announce, that DEATH ENGINE will record a full-length at the end of the year and release it via Apocaplexy Records & Throatruiner Records in 2015. Hugues PZZL will take care of the artwork, again. Can't wait.
