New releases announced (FLOOR box set, MEDUSA tape), Online Store updates & more!

August 17, 2009

Hot on the heels of the BAD SECRETS 9″+CD release we’ve got some pretty exciting announcements for this week, including a couple more new Robotic Empire releases. Immediately available is the debut MEDUSA album on cassette, and very shortly we will be making pre-orders available for the insanely massive FLOOR box set! Without further ado…

MEDUSA‘s debut En Raga Sul hits like a hurricane. Severely bludgeoning, ugly and downright EVIL sounding, this unholy release is the result when five lifetimes of burly riffs, horror movies and heavy pot intake collide into a maelstrom of hardcore/punk fury. 3/5ths of the RACEBANNON machine are responsible for this commotion, although MEDUSA is a beast of a very different color. The sheer vicious heaviness contained on this little monster conjures early MELVINS, HIS HERO IS GONE, FLOOR and Rosemary’s Baby all involved a multi-car pileup.

We’re very excited to present the cassette release of this behemoth of an album, and have done our best to package it accordingly. Housed in a double-sided finely silk-screened J-card with metallic gold ink, this black cassette (also with gold ink) is limited to a total of 200 copies and available now in our Online Store.

To say the very least, it’s been a long time coming. The long-rumored FLOOR box set is not only actually happening… it’s nearly upon us. Years in the making, everything this seminal Florida outfit ever recorded is contained within this massive release, including hours of material never previously heard by the public. This insane 10xLP (and one 7″) box set should include CDs of the same material as well as an extensive booklet of some lyrics, original artwork, band writings and tons more.

We’re hoping to have this completed within a few months, and pre-orders even sooner… maybe within just a week or two. More info will be posted as it becomes available, so please stay tuned (if you’re not on our email list already, this would be a good time to sign up). Consider this a warning: start saving your spare change and prepare your ears for permanent damage!

Lastly, we’ve gotten a crucial variety of new distro stuff in our Online Store this week. There’s the long-elusive 3-way split 12″ from THE ASSISTANT / TAKARU / THIS SHIP WILL SINK which has been unavailable for years, as well as new vinyl from AMENRA, FALL OF EFRAFA, NADJA, SWEET COBRA, TOWERS, killer new Forcefield releases, Sound Devastation and Electric Earth imports, along with much of the 20 Buck Spin catalog to keep your ears bleeding.
