Steven Meketa/ APARTMENT
FY#38 DEPRESSOR - "filth/grace" LP
Apocalyptic deathcrust conceived midst the urban decay
of Bay Area; expanding upon the machine-like dirges of early GODFLESH
and PITCHSHIFTER with the socially aware attitude akin
to AMEBIX and AXEGRINDER.
The "filth/grace" LP represent the earliest
incarnation of DEPRESSOR, originally available as two
home-dubbed cassettes- "filth" and "grace" (1995 and
1997, respectively)- available only in underground tape-trading circuits.
This release sounds as vital as ever both due to the masterful songwriting
skills and the true motives behind the songs.

logo cover at 11 euros.
FY#46 APARTMENT 213 - "cleveland power violence"
Since their inception over 20 years ago in Cleveland,
Ohio- APARTMENT 213 has represented embodiment of inbred
brutality and all things wrong. Stompy, metallic hardcore that has been
distilled to satisfy the finest standards. This is unforgiving, confronting,
fighting music- the end of the road.
Album includes collaborations with LOCKWELD and BASTARD

Available in 400 black and 100 white copies at 10 euros.
FY#47 NOOTHGRUSH - "entropy" 7"
With style reserved only for the true scholars of doom,
NOOTHGRUSH offer their latest rendering- a micro/macro
This release presents NOOTHGRUSH at their most refined;
the songs are immensely paced in relation to the lyrical content, opting
for acceptance of decay, and ultimately death. The restraint and respect
NOOTHGRUSH treat their instruments with is magnanimously
rewarded in the final outcome, adding to the seriousness and depth of
Recorded and mixed at EARHAMMER STUDIOS and mastered
by AUDIOSIEGE for maximum sonic impact.
