If the name No Omega sounds familiar, good – the Swedes were no.78 in our perpetual Future Hits series last year. Well, No Omega released their debut full lenghth, Metropolis, earlier this year, and have also just put it out on sexy limited-edition vinyl as part of a three-label release deal c/o Monument, Get This Right, and Thirty Days Of Night. You want to hear it, right?

FREE STUFF: Relapse Records have posted loads of their back catalogue up for online streaming

May 30th, 2012

Relapse Records have gone and posted an enormous chunk of their back catalogue online via their official Bandcamp page, where you can stream the whole damn lot FOR FREE. Now despite some reporting to the contrary, it’s not their entire back catalogue (or at least, it isn’t yet), but it is a fair old part of it. Even so, it still means that you can listen to over 100 releases by Relapse, including records by Death, Pig Destroyer, Rotten Sound, Red Fang, Toxic Holocaust, and a whole lot more besides. The only real omissions from Relapse’s Bandcamp profile are some of the bands that used to be signed to the label but aren’t anymore – for those acts, which include Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan among their number – Relapse have posted single sample songs from the albums in question. We don’t know why you’d moan about this though – it’s still more free and legal music for you to stream.

Obviously Relapse are hoping you’ll reward them for their online generosity by shelling out for a release or two – such as Baroness’ forthcoming Yellow & Green album – and why wouldn’t you? Remember kids, whether you’re a renegade who’d torrent his own grandmother given the chance, or if you’re the kind of person who’ll only listen to vinyl that you preferably bought in an actual real-world record store, it’s important that you support the bands you love. Because if you don’t, they might not be able to afford to keep making that music you enjoy so much.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to order some Brutal Truth albums at Relapse’s online store.

We first started banging on about 7 Horns 7 Eyes over a year ago, when their brand of prog-inclined-but-still-moodily-crushing metal caught our attention with sufficient force for us to violently thrust our Future Hits column in their direction. So when the chaps over at Basick Records dropped us a line and asked if we’d like to host a European-exclusive (insofar as anything on the internet is “exclusive”, these days) stream of their debut album, Throes of Absolution, the weekend before it even goes on sale, we…well, you can guess the rest, can’t you?
