Here are some upcoming items that will be available soon at http://lastrightsrecords.storenvy.com

Ulver – Themes from William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (black vinyl) import from Norway only 1000

2×12″ pressed on heavy black vinyl in gatefold sleeve!

Available in mid to late February 2012

“Themes from William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, released in 1998, was different from what Ulver had made before. Tore Ylwizaker, a new composer and sound architect, added to Garm’s expanding artistic visions, and together they stepped over the boundaries of black metal aesthetics, creating a genre-defying work. In this album, the musicians blended electronics, industrial music elements, progressive metal and avant-garde rock, adding ambient passages.

Lyrically, the album incorporates the entire text of William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, and relies on guest vocals. Despite confounding and perhaps alienating many fans of the band’s first three albums, the album received widespread acclaim from critics within both the rock/metal and alternative music press. For instance, it was reviewed as album of the month in several high-profile magazines such as Terrorizer, Metal Hammer, and Rock Hard. It also ranked very high at many year’s best polls that same year.”

Corrosion Of Conformity – Corrosion Of Conformity (white vinyl) import from UK

Available early-March 2012

  • BRAND NEW ALBUM FROM THE LEGENDARY CORROSION OF CONFORMITY
  • FEATURES THE CLASSIC LINEUP BACK TOGETHER AFTER 20 YEARS
  • FIRST ALBUM IN 6 YEARS
  • LIMITED EDITION 180 GRAM DOUBLE WHITE VINYL
  • In the summer of 2010, the founding members of the pioneering underground metal band Corrosion of Conformity bassist/vocalist Mike Dean, drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin and guitarist Woody Weatherman gathered at Weathermans farm in the Virginia hill and began jamming together as a three piece for the first time since the mid-1980s. This was the classic COC lineup behind 1985s Animosity, the album that Decibel magazine recently called a crucial stylistic lynchpin in the bridge between metal and punk that irrevocably reshaped crossovers sonic possibilities.
  • Its been six years since the release of COCs last album, In the Arms of God, with the lineup of Dean, Weatherman, longtime COC vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan, and guest drummer Stanton Moore of the jazz-funk band Galactic, one of the several drummers who filled in while Mullin recuperated from a drumming related injury.
  • Representing the more straightforward metal sound that characterized COCs work with Keenan beginning with 1991s Blind, ITAOG earned critical praise, with Billboard calling it a riff-fueled set that ranks with [the bands] best work. Following that release in early 2005, COC toured the U.S. and Canada with Motorhead, one of their biggest influences, and later teamed up with Clutch for a UK tour.

Drudkh – Eternal Turn Of The Wheel (black vinyl) import from France

Available late February or early March 2012

“DRUDKH have written one of the most successful underground Black Metal stories with their previous eight albums. Now “Eternal Turn of the Wheel” witnesses the Ukrainians returning to their atmospheric black roots, which are most loved by their dedicated following around the globe. Gone are the progressive elements characterising their previous release “Handful of Stars” (2010). DRUDKH’s newest masterpiece owes more to their cult debut “Forgotten Legends” (2003) and the cinematic soundscapes of “Autumn Aurora” (2004) with some of the traditional influences rising on “The Swan Road” (2005). Fans of the slightly progressive “Blood in Our Wells” (2006) will also find their moments. Like the partly acoustic “Songs of Grief and Solitude” (2006) “Eternal Turn of the Wheel” offers a more melodic approach as the harsh “Estrangement” (2007) and ties in well with the widely acclaimed “Microcosmos” (2009) album. DRUDKH offer Slavonic Heathen Metal at its best and the perfect soundtrack of winter!”

Tracklist:

  1. Eternal Circle
  2. Breath of Cold Black Soil
  3. When Gods Leave Their Emerald Halls
  4. Farewell to Autumn’s Sorrowful Birds
  5. Night Woven of Snow, Winds and Grey-Haired Stars

The band’s 12th album „Relapse“ is due in 2012 and he says it will be the heaviest Ministry record to date!

Tracklist:

01. Ghouldiggers

Alcest – Les Voyages De L’âme on white or clear vinyl now IN STOCK at Last Rights Records.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2012 by lastrightsrecords.storenvy.com

Order now at – http://lastrightsrecords.storenvy.com (or click on image below)

Limited quantities available! White and clear vinyl editions are already SOLD OUT at the label.

Alcest – Les Voyages ‘de l’âme (white or clear vinyl) only 500 import from Germany

“Alcest – that is music from another world, a world that is real, but that exists beyond ours and cannot be grasped by our senses. A world where all appearances – trees, glades, streams – emit a pearly light and where a faraway and celestial music fills the air like sweet perfume. A world inhabited by infinitely benevolent and protective beings of light, communicating in a wordless ‘language’ directly from one soul to another. A world where the soul knows neither pain nor sickness nor sorrow, but is filled with a deep peace and an ineffable bliss. A world that lies ‘before’ and ‘after,’ ‘beside’ and ‘behind’ our world and the awareness of which stills mankind’s fears of death.

This world is no dream and no fantasy. Neige, the creative mind of Alcest, knows it – he has experienced it and keeps memories of how it revealed itself to him in the form of esoteric experiences in his early life. Alcest is his medium to come to terms with these memories and to share them with others.

“Les voyages de l’âme” (“The Journeys of the Soul”) is Alcest’s third album and contains the quintessence of the group’s creative work to date. While “Le secret,” the debut EP from 2005, was the key to the world of Alcest, “Les voyages …” unites everything that characterises Alcest in terms of concept and music. While an epic composition such as “Là où naissent les couleurs nouvelles” would have found its place also on “Écailles de lune,” “Beings of Light” with its blazing character reminds of the ground-breaking “Le secret.” On the other hand, “Autre temps” – the album’s first single to which there is also an impressive and visually stunning video clip – is a prime example for the melodic and catchy side of Alcest that initially came to the fore on the band’s debut album “Souvenirs d’un autre monde.” Something that is common to all of the songs, however, is the predominant feeling of euphoria and bliss, always subtly overshadowed by melancholia and yearning. A feeling akin to that which you experience when you think about the otherworld of Alcest that awaits us all.

Limited white or clear gatefold vinyl with alternative cover, incl. poster, limited to 500 copies

Tracklist:
1. Autre temps
2. Là où naissent les couleurs nouvelles
3. Les voyages de l’âme
4. Nous sommes l’emeraude

6. Faiseurs de mondes
7. Havens
8. Summer’s glory ”

Lamb Of God – Resolution (import from Germany) (black vinyl) (release date: 1/23)

 

“Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD have set “Resolution” as the title of their new album, due on January 24, 2012 via Epic Records (one day earlier internationally through Roadrunner). The record was once again helmed by producer Josh Wilbur, who worked on the band’s last effort, 2009’s “Wrath”.”

Swallow The Sun – Emerald Forest And The Blackbird (white or green vinyl) (import from Finland) (release date: February 1st)

 

“We present you the brand new Swallow the Sun album on vinyl. It consists of ten tracks spread over two 12 inch wax platters, which we have then slid into a gatefold jacket. There are two options for you to consider: a transparent green vinyl version, which is limited to 400 copies and a more exclusive white vinyl version.

“I found myself listening to an old Finnish lullaby called ‘Sininen Uni’ over and over again, and suddenly images started pouring into my mind of a dad reading a tale to his dying child, trying to explain where the child is going that night, the tale of Emerald Forest and the Blackbird,” says Juha Raivio, the main songwriter.

“Finally this image lead me into a long journey through this night and got me trapped in the limbo between the dusk and the dawn. The place where you face your demons and angels, meet the souls of the ones you loved and lost. Will we walk the night forever, or let the night forgive us and let us say a last goodbye? These are songs from the limbo, notes of sorrow, hate, love, darkness and light. The tale of Emerald Forest and the Blackbird.”

We are extremely honoured to have Anette Olzon of NIGHTWISH featuring on vocals on CATHEDRAL WALLS. Her recognizable voice gives the song the depth and the angelic character it demands.

“When I got to listen to the rough demo of ‘Cathedral Walls’ I fell in love with the song immediately and I was so honoured to be asked to sing on this song. The melody and lyrics are truly beautiful.”, comments Olzon.

In addition, Aleah Stanbridge of TREES OF ETERNITY – whose ethereal voice is familiar from our previous works – is also featured on two tracks.

The album was recorded during September and October 2011 by the legendary Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Amorphis and Children of Bodom, to name a few) at Drumforest Studios in Viitasaari and Sonic Pump 2 in Helsinki, and by Hannu Honkonen at Noisework Studios in Helsinki.”

Swallow The Sun – New Moon (black vinyl) (import from Finland) (release date: February 1st)

 

“Swallow the Sun’s 2009 album New Moon finally available on vinyl! The Svart edition features a special manilla jacket and a printed inner sleeve. Limited to an one-time pressing of 500 copies.”

The Gathering – How To Measure A Planet? (yellow or black vinyl) (import from Finland) (release date: January 30th)

 

The Gathering – If Then Else (red or black vinyl) (import from Finland) (release date: January 30th)

 

Two classic albums from The Gathering’s more experimental and progressive period. These were issued on vinyl over 10 years ago only in very limited runs, and the originals now go for serious sums of money. These reissues come in gatefold jackets and are properly mastered for vinyl. Both are limited to 500 copies only.
