You can stream & download it HERE.
The band has released a beautiful video, watch it!
After their terrifying 1st ep released in 2016, the Swiss masters of infernal sludge/doom procession CHARLENE BERETAH are back with a first full-length which will shatter the gate of hell and unleash all its demons.
Named RAM, this new ugly piece displays a band at the top of his game. The addition of a bass player to their already « thick as fuck » sound was the way to bring more heaviness to the unique band’s potion. Mixing with no shame the slowest doom with dirty & sludgy riffs, adding screamed & demonic vocals, all of this proped by devastating drumming, the monstruous result is also sprinkled by crusty accelerations which remind of old-school black metal.
The album will be released on November the 8th on Vinyl, cd & digital. In oreder to celebrate, we’ve planned a huge release party at our headquarters on THURSDAY 7 NOVEMBER. Save the date, as we’ve also invited black metal titans NEIGE MORTE to perform. You wouldn’t miss that, would you?
You’ll be able to discover a new song next week, we’ll keep you posted!
After a short break to enjoy a little bit of sun during this summer, we’re thrilled to get back to work for this second part of the year! We’ve 3 releases planned by the end of 2019, so we better get started with this first one!
KØDE is a band born in Lausanne a few years ago under the impulsion of Saskia (you might know her since she was part of The Chikitas). After a first EP released through our brothers at Cold Smoke Records, the band is now ready to release it’s first album Discrete Transformation via our small structure, and we couldn’t be more happy about that! Read the whole biography HERE.
The music displayed on Discrete Transformationis very personnal but also reminds of styles we’ve always liked here, at the Division Cartel. There are noise rock/grunge influences in there, as well as deep slowcore stuff. It’s also very rocky, even punky and somethime gloomy. Well, you’ll have to make an idea for yourself, I guess! The album will see the light on October the 18th & we’ll throw a huge release party the next day in Lausanne @ L’Espace Autogéré in order to celebrate properly!
The album comes in a delicious black vinyl with reverse printed cover & the cd is a pretty digisleeve with a 24 pages poster folded insert. It’ll of course also be available in digital.
Because one release party is not enough, we’ve also invited KØDE to our 8th VENDREDIVISION where they will exclusively present their new songs especially for you, lucky bastards! It’ll take place on September the 20th and we’ll offer the champagne! Be there early!
We’ll of course unveil some music very soon, stay tuned! In the meantime, why don’t go greeting our new band on their social media?
The cat is finally out of the box: Today is the official release of BUNKR’s first album « Schluss »
« The style is quite difficult to define, but on this album we find a good math rock base, a more angular noise rock sound and the sweet purring of stoner with a touch of psychedelic rock. These guys embody a certain idea of eclecticism, since they confess to adore both techno and JAAAZZZZZ as well as d-beat hardcore… Schluss thus deploys his personality in several distinct parts, and rhythmically it plays with odd times signatures, in addition to the conventional 4/4, to create disturbing and haunting grooves. In the end, this album forms a 45-minute soundscape reminiscent of some of the Impressionist or Pointillist paintings, but that does not really matter, as long as you can shake your head… »
The album is released in coproduction with our friends from COLDSMOKE RECORDS and can be found in every good records store, as well as on every streaming plateform.
The release party will take place tomorrow @ BIKINI TEST & starts at 14:00 with a market full of local artisans as well as many great labels (Hummus, Vituve, Burning Sounds, Cold Smoke…). There will be food & beers, don’t be shy!
