Available titles:

FLATGREY - Tombs CS

Currently located on the west coast and active since the mid-2000s with time served in both Vancouver and Montreal, FLATGREY continues to launch assaults of pure harsh noise. Plain and simple. This is the first document since 2012's split tape with GRKZGL and comes 11 years after the premiere releases on noteworthy Vancouver label rundownsun.

C26. Edition of 100.

FLATLINE CONSTRUCT - They Think They've Found the Terror CS

Recently reactivated project, first incarnation 1997-2009. As fierce and harsh as ever. This is the soundtrack to accompany the carnage of a total systems overload. Recorded live to disc in September 2016. No edits, no overdubs. No mercy. No remorse.

Aside from performing under his own name - and doing noise in the final years of THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE - other former projects include: PISS HORN, RIDE AT DAWN, STEGM (which featured collaborations with Dominic Fernow / PRURIENT), and ZENTA SUSTAINED (with Sam McKinlay / THE RITA). He currently does time in INTENSIVE CARE and SCALP ELEVATOR.

C20. Second edition of 22.

THE NAUSEA - Requiem Aeternam CS

Anju Singh has been the primary figure behind the Vancouver Noise Festival for the past seven years, the drummer and vocalist in long-running (and now nearing fully-realized) death metal band AHNA, and has held countless other roles in the punk, metal, and harsh noise scenes in Vancouver. THE NAUSEA has existed alongside all of this for the better part of a decade now. These six violin-based movements channel GYORGY LIGETI's works popularized in "2001: A Space Odyssey", and JOHNNY GREENWOOD's contemporary classical score for "There Will Be Blood", as they both ascend to levels of compositional clarity and descend into a cavernous, hellish nightmare populated by the harrowing voices of the dead and the dying. Similarities can be drawn to JASON LESCALLEET's epic "The Pilgrim" as the crescendo of harsh noise begins to decay. Death is the ultimate theme at play here. A long-awaited debut release from a figure instrumental in maintaining Vancouver's integrity in the harsh noise scene and beyond.

Original artwork by Mark Orton (Skinny).

C28. Edition of 100 on pro-dubbed, pad-printed, sonic-smoke coloured tapes.
