TLAL Vault I, II, & III

In this world of being isolated, I decided to revisit the TLAL Vault that I put together five years ago. I was missing a lot of tracks and split sides of records so I put in the time and obsessively tagged MP3s. I split the first 100 into two so that Volume I is TLAL001-TLAL050, Vol II is TLAL051-100, and made a new volume of 101-150. All are free to download. Please share on all P2P media and to anyone you like.

Preorder – Racetraitor / Closet Witch / Neckbeard Deathcamp / Haggathorn – Four Way Split 2×7″

As so many of us are being kept apart in this era of social distancing, Neckbeard Deathcamp (IL), Racetraitor (IL, NY, OR), Closet Witch (IA), and Haggathorn (IL) come together for a scorching 11-song four-way split EP.

The release will be available for pre-order and digital sales on April 22, 2020. The double EP with gatefold cover will be pressed on vinyl and distributed through To Live a Lie Records (US), Moment of Collapse Records (DE), Ugly and Proud Records (BG), and Circus of the Macabre Records (UK).

“I’ve always loved splits,” said Mani Mostofi, vocalist of Racetraitor. “Splits seem to be a unique oddity of the punk, hardcore, and metal scenes and I think that is because of the collective underpinning of those scenes.”

“We wanted this project to be a community building exercise in which like-minded bands each offer their take on life, politics, and brutality in a shared space. We are pretty pleased by the outcome,” Mostofi added.

Neckbeard Deathcamp is a mysterious and vehemently antifascist activist group on Prosthetic Records. Their unique mix of black metal, crust, and sarcasm has been bringing them notoriety across scenes and social media platforms alike.

Closet Witch is a much beloved powerviolence/grind act that has been wowing audiences with their emotionally raw live performances. They have a full length originally released by Halo of Flies Records and their full discography is available on Moment of Collapse Records.

Racetraitor is a legacy left-wing metal/hardcore band born in 1996 and reformed in 2016. Their second full length “2042” released on Good Fight Music, was a fiery refutation of the Trump era and American white supremacy. The band includes members of Fall Out Boy, Sect, and the fourth band on this release, Haggathorn.

Haggathorn is an anarchist black metal band that hit the scene last year with another split EP with Neckbeard.

The split’s various tracks were recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree, IA; Found Soundation Recording Studios, in Brooklyn, NY; and Electrical Audio, Studio Greg Studios, Write Carroll, and other undisclosed locations in Chicago, IL.

Preorder – Joy – No Light Below LP/CS

Joy – No Light Below LP/CS

Occasionally in life you run across something that tugs on your heart strings. You feel smitten and smile all the time and feel lifted from this awful world. I hate to break it to you but No Light Below pulls on your heart, it firmly grasps and rips each ventricle one by one popping and sputtering until your blackened hard is encased in the mire which is this world. Vindictive, nihilistic, spiteful, and completely vitriolic is how you’d best explain Joy. The band has risen from their crushing first EP and produced a masterful freshman full length that oozes hatred. Those unfamiliar with the band will be greeted with bile and blackened hardcore that can only be broiled out of the oppressive North Carolina sunshine. Breakdowns, blastbeats, BOTCH-esque brutality. In this modern day where nothing makes sense, JOY bash and beat you back to reality.
