Rot Coven - Nightmares Devour The Waking World - digi 2CD
Last updated: 2 July 2024

Really excited to announce the release of the debut album from US act - Rot Coven

Rot Coven dwell amidst the darkest corners of the underground - roughly described as noise-drenched, industrial death metal sludge.

Personally, it's everything I'm seeking out in the music I want to listen to currently - seamlessly incorporating elements of noise, ambient, death metal, and a doomed aesthetic - noisy chaos with a metal pulse - it's dark, evocative, psyched out, lysergic, f*cked up.....and it's pure bliss!!

"Antimatter Halo" is the first preview track - from Phase I of the album, which builds colossal sludge riffs out of ominous death industrial soundscapes, erupting into a supernova of psychedelic leads.

Due for release on August 15th - be sure to check this out and share around....


Mekigah - To Hold Onto A Heartless Heart

Rot Coven due to release with AD.....
Last updated: 10 June 2024

After running the label for so many years I'm privileged to have worked with so many amazing and exciting bands.

But, as you get older, there's not so much (in life, not just in music) that gets you as excited as those young hedonistic days when dark oppressive music was the soundtrack to the highs....and the lows...

Listening to Rot Coven brings it all back - reminds me of why I love running the label after all these years.

"Nightmares Devour The Waking World" was exactly what I looking for in that moment - when I heard it for the first time I fell straight for it and it gave me that buzz of excitement, like an old music junkie still searching for the next big high.....

Released in August 2024 - be sure to look out for this!!



Mekigah - new album.....
Last updated: 10 June 2024

some 7 years since the last album - Mekigah return with their brand new album.

Long time friend of both myself and the label - Mekigah create a music and identity I can perfectly relate to.

With a non-conformist approach to music, an anti-establishment mindset and turning his back to the mechanisms of society - Mekigah are the ideal fit to Aesthetic Death

The new album sees Mekigah travel down even more difficult and head-fucking labyrinths than before. 

More news to follow - expect a release by August 2024

Eventide - Waterline CD
Last updated: 19 February 2024

""Waterline" is the debut recording from EVENTIDE

A new band to most, but EVENTIDE has musicians which are already well respected within the underground scene.

"Waterline" is a beautiful album - a realisation and outlet for the guys from EPITAPHE.

Having additional recordings, which took shape during the "II" sessions, along with live performances conceived with the Collectif Eptagon, it was a natural progression for these unique and rich soundscapes to be given their own entity and identity - thus EVENTIDE evolved into being.

The four tracks display a more improvised electronic ambient atmospheric sonicscape - a convergence of the musical styles outside of "metal" that inspire these musicians.

Out during March 2024 - on digipack CD.
