whoa, 2013 is definitely shaping up to be the busiest year for anthropic records. with three releases in the pipeline and more on the way, our brains and hearts are exploding. Sadgiqacea will see their full-length release this May on both Candlelight and Anthropic Records.The vinyl release is available for pre-order from the webstore and features a beautiful gatefold jacket with original artwork from both Fred and Evan of Sadgiqacea, magenta/black splattered vinyl and a free digi-download. Anthrosphere Volume IV will be released in May featuring 10 of Philadelphia’s most creative and hard-working bands (I say 10 of…there are plenty more in this fine city of ours). Sadgiqacea, Hivelords, Ominous Black, Infiltrator, Ashencult, Plague Dogs, Occult45, Sunburster, Surgeon, and +hirs+ all make up this years compilation. With mastering by Chris Grigg (Woe) and original artwork by Mike Wohlberg (thefatkidillustration), this comp is a beast. Definitely my favorite so far and a testament to my ever growing opinion that things just keep getting better and better every year. Hivelords will release their debut full-length on Anthropic Records in July. It will be available on both cd and vinyl and feature brand new artwork by Tim Buckley. This album is a monster. 40 minutes of unrelenting blackened doom that promises nervous breakdowns and vulturous bone-picking of your thirsty soul. It is like being hypnotized, dragged into the ocean and having your head held down in pools of terrible memories while your ego gets knocked off it’s celestial hierarchy and laid out to dry as an empty shell, reborn into the nothingness from which you came. In other words, it is amazing. But, see for yourself. It will be available at the webstore in July.
I will have tour schedules up for the Sadgiqacea/Hivelords full US Tour soon enough.
Also, MORE new releases coming…yes, I said, MORE. We work hard over here to bring the noise and this year, we are putting our money where our riffs are. Keep checking back for updates.
As always, thank you for your support.
