Crawl footage from last night. Get fucking crushed.
Related note: I’m getting more Crawl tapes in stock in the coming week.
The future of #mvrdersvicideincidents right here. I just tested it out and it is indeed a fuckin’ monster.
Couple of real choice additions right here, folks…
Arnaut Pavle - Demo 2012 CS
Released by Vlad Tapes (FIN):
Obscure and necrotic debut demo from Black Metal band, Arnaut Pavle, who have seemingly come from nowhere. 7 tracks in 18 minutes of punishment. I haven’t heard something this vicious in a while. Their style is comparable to such contemporary acts as Craft or Orcustus. Highly fuckin’ recommended.
To preview 3 tracks:
Dispirit - 111112 CS
Self released by the band
Dispirit returns! Finally some new output after almost 3 years since their previous demo tape. This time they’ve become even more ethereal, even more murky and dismal than before. The droning riffs envelope you and paralyze your senses all through this epic 47 minute rehearsal demo.
samples of their music can be found at:
These titles as well as more available at:
I’ve got a few more releases coming in the mail, so there will likely be another distro update before the end of the month.
Bismuth is a two-piece mountain of doom and amp worship from Nottingham, UK. Joe does drums and Tanya does bass and vocals. For fans of Khlyst, Monarch, Corrupted, Khanate and Burning Witch.
I still have ONE last cassette from Bismuth in my store. I highly fucking recommended you check them out.
All orders are gonna come with a noose from now on. #mvrdersvicideincidents #morbidartsandcrafts
It certainly has been a while hasn’t it? No matter. Still here and still svpporting.
Let me start by saying that the very well received Esclavo EP, Enslaved is available again to order after having sold thru the initial pressing from last year.
(my description from last year)
Another release 2 years in the making. Esclavo’s debut release shows a penchant for writing atmospherically oppressive, misanthropy infatuated, and doom laden music. 5 track spanning 25 minutes of crawling, writhing and suffering caught on tape, it really doesn’t get much bleaker than this, man. For fans of Noothgrush, Dystopia, Corrupted, Eyehategod.

VPR006 : Amarok / Hell Split CS
Released by Vulture Print spring 2013
The two bands on this split represent different threads within the extreme doom genre.
Amarok, from California, completes their side with one long and epic song. They have a sound that is more aligned with the sorrowful, melodic side of the doom spectrum. This would appeal to fans of such bands as Mournful Congregation, Pallbearer and (maybe) Lurker of Chalice.
Hell from Oregon, completes their side of the tape with 3 shorter (than they’re used to anyway) songs. Coming off the heals of their third album as well as a split with Thou last year, this material continues in a similar vein. Spiteful, oppressive, and even melancholic at times. This is a band that people would do well to pay attention to as they’re currently in the top tier of US extreme doom bands (in my opinion anyway).

TAR004 : Undersmile - Narwhal CS
Released by Tartarus Records December, 2012
Undersmile, is a band from the UK that has forged a very unique sound amongst the contemporary doom metal scene.
Narwhal is their monstrous debut album, clocking in at about 80 minutes in length. At times, their music brings to mind the dreariness of Burning Witch and other times recalling classick melodies that My Dying Bride could have written in the early 90’s. There is also a very subtle echo of mid 90’s Neurosis style sludge. All in all, there’s a wealth of influence to draw from, while at the same time having a sound that is wholly their own. This album comes HIGHLY recommended from me.
All copies come with a screen printed patch.

FCR 06 : Church of Disgust - Invocation of Putrid Worship
Released by Filthy Cave Records in January, 2013:
Church of Disgust RETURNS! with their second demo tape, filthier and sicker than before. Invocation of Putrid Worship charts a more clear path of C.O.D’s vision of Death Metal than their previous demo (which was also distributed by M/SI). Production values and song writing technique have both been honed more finely this time around and is a lead-in to their debut album this year which will be released by Memento Mori in Spain.
Every tape comes with a Church of Disgust sticker.

Note that I am still waiting for several more very interesting distro tapes and I will post again when I get them.
Folding these up tonight. Got the #esclavo tape repress in this afternoon and I’ll have them for sale again this week as well as a long overdue distro update.
Wormlust’s forthcoming debut album, The feral wisdom is now streaming in it’s entirety. Have a listen because the new material is LEAPS AND BOUNDS above the demo material that was contained on The Wormlust Collective and is above and beyond anything going on in Iceland at the moment.
This is being released by Demonhood Productions from Norway soon.
Really sick show. This was supposed to be the Botfly - Enemies of the World release show but NAC put a damper on that with their delay. Got to perform a bit of vocals with Dustin during a couple of songs, that was nice. Headache and Afflictive Nature killed it that night too. Met all the dudes from Withdrawal, talked about hardcore and pantera with em. I think this was the first show that I ever set up a table for too.
I’ve closed the e-store up now. All pending orders go out tomorrow morning.
I’m vacationing in Portland, Oregon the 25th-6th, any of you weirdos wanna hang out while I’m there? Email me, email@example.com
After the 21st of this month, M/SI will be closed until January 7th. The e-store will be down, all prior orders will ship out before the 21st. Taking my first ever vacation, let’s see if I can’t enjoy myself a bit.
I’ve got a few REAL choice black and death metal tapes in stock NOW…
Imprecation - Jehova Denied Demo CS
The classick Texas Death Metal band, Imprecation returns to form on this 4 song demo tape. Anyone who has seen the band live recently or heard their Sigil of Lucifer EP released in 2011 KNOWS that the band is back and more evil and sick and possessed than they’ve ever been. Originally self-released by the band on cd-r earlier in 2012, now it has seen the cassette release that it’s worthy of.
Released by Unholy Domain Records from Italy:

Hatespawn - Blasphemous Redeemer Demo CS
Latest demo tape from Germany’s Hatespawn. They returned recently from a hiatus with a split with another great contemporary German Death Metal band, Charon and now release another onslaught of pure Death Metal mastery.
For the uninitiated, the band was formed in 2004 by ex-Impending Doom members A.O.D. and Deathmonger and continues their tradition of old school, no frills Satanic Death Metal. Their way is indeed the right way, and you can clearly see their mastery over the classick elements in this 20 minute DEMONstration tape.
Every tape comes with an album cover-motif sticker.
Released by Deathcult Productions:

Oath of Cruelty - Altar of Impalement Demo CS
Oath of Cruelty represents a new standard for contemporary Metal bands in Texas. Featuring members of Blaspherian, P.L.F. and Dark Reign, they play relentless, absolutely RIPPING Death/Thrash Metal. Everything about this release is flawlessly executed, from the artwork to the production and songwriting…this has it all.

Verräter - 2012 Demo CS
Here we have the first demo of an interesting new Black Metal band from the mid-west, Verräter. A very aggressive and discordant recording interspersed with atmospheric interludes is what we have here, there’s something very special going on and you’d do well to pay attention to Verräter.
