see you on the road,
summer brought some awesome things. hivelords released their debut album, ‘cavern apothecary’, hivelords and sadgiqacea hit the road for a super successful full US tour. really proud of how the summer shaped up. the bands worked really hard and kicked butt out there. thank you to everyone who helped out this summer. you know who you are and the anthropic family appreciates everything you do.
next up, hivelords vinyl will be here soon! really looking forward to getting this on the shelves and into the hands of all the awesome folks who pre-ordered. the responses to this album have been mind-blowing. i couldn’t be more proud and psyched about it. get at it. it’s limited!
sadgiqacea (candlelight) hits the road today for a week-long pilgrimage with their mates, haethen. they will hit the north and then slide over to the Indianapolis metal fest and then back. check out the tour page for cities and dates near you!
as always, check out the store for a ton of great deals.
there are so many awesome things going on right now.
this week saw the release of the much anticipated debut, full-length release, ‘CAVERN APOTHECARY’, from HIVELORDS. the album features five brutally terrorizing songs recorded by richard scott, mastered by james plotkin and features original artwork by tim buckley. it is a BEAST of an album and i couldn’t be more proud to have released this. HIVELORDS have proven to be artists that step outside any and all metal boxes and continue to blow me away with their intense writing style, stage performance and their no-fear fever for touring. the album is available at the web store on CD and will be available on 12″ vinyl later in the month.
next, the ENTIRE tour schedule is up and up-to-date for HIVELORDS/SADGIQACEA FULL US TOUR. click on the tour page to find out where and when they are playing in your city. they will definitely need your support out there. both bands are touring in support of their brand new albums (sadgiqacea available through candlelight and anthropic records and hivelords available through anthropic records) and will have massive amounts of t-shirts, vinyl, cds, patches, stickers, pins, etc. grab something from them and get them to their next city. this is a HUGE tour and completely diy. show up.
i am also thrilled to announce the split 12″ coming this October with psychedelic doom-riders, Ominous Black and black metal giants, Krieg. Ominous Black have finished recording their side as of last week (recorded at Gradwell in Haddon Heights, NJ) and Krieg will hit the studio in late July. Expect lots of emotional twists and turns on this ride. Keep your eyes and ears opened for updates.
Next up, I would like to announce the hot new relationship between Anthropic Records and Catharsis PR. i have been doing my own promotion for some time now and as the ever-long laundry list of things to do gets longer and longer, it only made sense to get support from a trusted source. i have known kim (grimkim) for some time now and i have watched her travel all over the world, pumping her heart and (blackened) soul into words, into promotion, into touring, onto everything she touches. i couldn’t be more excited to work with kim. i’m not going to lie, it’s going to be hard to take the back seat to my unrelenting (yes, i know i am annoying) shameless promoting but, if i was to trust anyone with it, it would have to be kim kelly.
lots of love coming from the anthropic records tribe. we hope you can show some support in any way you can. we put a lot on the line to bring you music that we truly believe in over here. enjoy it. thank you to those who continue to show their support!

Lots of great things happening over here at the Anthropic Records compound. We are happy to serve you.
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.
