The first release on Black Labs, sister label to UK label Riot Season. A limited edition 500 only split vinyl LP featuring two of the toughest cocks on the block.
Black Labs unites two of Britain's creamiest, shadiest, hell mongers Hey Colossus and Dethscalator, for a split album and you're going to cop it massively in the face till you fall in. Three new long tracks from Hey Colossus and five from new boys on the chopping block Dethscalator. Clocking in at around 40 minutes and wrapped in a gorgeous sleeve.
Hey Colossus and Dethscalator are two truly unhinged faces of the same rotting, mid air spinning bad apple, storming down their steaming rays of utter pitilessness, the bastards. Locking you in it's in highbeam and telling you everything you don't think you want to know, but secretly do, axes raised high, trapped voices dragging you down into the dim well. Both know the path to unbridled feedbacking euphoria and putrid atmospheric depth and are allowing the lucky few to climb inside the gungey joey pocket of fate and soar and crash over and over. Flaying victims regularly home and abroad you will do well to serve yourself a hot steaming portion immediately.

Another fine installment on the path they started diggin since 2015' Black&Gold. This one sounds définitive. So good ! I wouldn't be surprised if they change it all on their next offering. But for now juste sit back and enjoy the ride. berenger mouton

Well this is damn good. I’m struggling to describe it, but here goes: Birthday Party era Nick Cave arthouse post punk with a stoner rock vibe to the production. Whew!
The bass drives the music and there is considerable variety between the songs. They tag it as, among others, psychedelic rock, and while I’m not sure I hear it, this lines up nicely with other recent standout additions to my collection like Hochen, Dreamtime, and Black Rainbows, who also use that tag. So maybe it’s just me. Lute FP
