Check out now “Disappear” below.

Describes the label Akercocke’s forthcoming release:

“A comprehensive reinvention and expansion of the band’s multifarious sound, Renaissance In Extremis delivers euphoric force and mind-boggling weirdness. There are scything thrash and death metal riffs in abundance, plus warped but elegant melodies and clouds of ugly dissonance; moments of unsettling calm and quiet. Renaissance In Extremis is a bold, bullish and belligerent statement of creative intent: metal’s dark spirit reborn in an explosion of bright ideas and inspirational fury.”

Van Records Expanding With U.S. Division

Germany’s cult label Ván Records has sanctioned a partnership in the U.S. forging a new branch of the company to deliver the diverse catalog to more stateside listeners. Alongside the announcement, the label has also released new singles from The Ruins Of Beverast and Slaegt.

Having released over two-hundred albums, singles, EPs, splits, and more from across the realms of metal and rock since being founded in 2004, Ván Records has been largely responsible for the worldwide proliferation of acts such as The Devil’s Blood, Urfaust, King Dude, and countless others.

Now, Ván Records’ owner Sven Dinninghoff has furthered the label’s relationship with King Dude founder TJ Cowgill to help launch the new U.S. division of the entity out of Seattle. This new branch of Ván sees the catalog now distributed stateside through Revolver, making these titles much more accessible to fans across North America and beyond.

The first wave of titles to see U.S. release through this new deal will strike on May 19th, including new LPs from The Ruins Of Beverast, Slaegt, Gold, and Dread Sovereign, with many more to follow. A Ván Records retail shop will also be launched this Summer.

Cowgill states, “I am honored and proud to be a part of the ever growing Ván Records family, from working at first with Sven as an artist on the roster to now, becoming an integral part of the family as head of the label’s U.S. office. We have been planning this expansion now for over almost eight months, and seeing it come to life has been a truly awesome experience. Our dedicated staff and myself hope that through this expansion we will bring even more quality and excellence known from Ván into the lives of every single fan, record store and distributor in North America. Hail the glory of Lucifer!”
