While I'm not a huge fan of all the content found within Down and Out the writing is spot on. Sam doesn't fall back on any lazy 'punk' form like a lot of other zines, which seem to be free of any real literary effort and clearly no attempt at editing. Sam in contrast, obviously expends a lot of effort here, and reminds you that this is a written publication, with a focus on well.. the written word. A refreshing read, informed from an authentic outsider perspective on underground and abrasive music. Very high quality, and one of the only good Australian zines left. From Hobart no less.

CARVED CROSS/EMPIRE OF HATE-SPLIT CS
Over a year in the making! Carved Cross and the elite Empire of Hate team up for an epic split of Australian delinquency. All new material from both bands, 3 tracks from Carved Cross in their usual downward spiraling BM dirge while Empire of Hate offer up 5 tracks of superb, shimmering BM. At times EOH are hopeful and almost radiant before stumbling into a sad and deeply moving sphere of despair and anguish. Their opener "Wind of Minacious Purity" is quite possibly one of the best BM tracks of the last decade. Prepare yourself for more than 40 minutes worth of crude and wonderful BM from the more isolated areas of Australia.

CARVED CROSS-LIVE RITUAL III CS

Wednesday, 16 July 2014
Further excursions into the sickening depths that mankind will plummet to. Unique and demented visions of BM, this time however the vein has been pierced repeatedly with the needle of warped punk, offering a sound that those familiar with the Tasmanian Blackline Elite group of miscreants will be somewhat prepared for, albeit it with a different dementia permeating throughout. The Winterreich Dungeon lives again with an unnerving fixation.

REHEARSAL TAPE COMING SOON.

CARVED CROSS/PHANTOM FEEL SPLIT CS
These two kindred spirits of decrepit underground musings and mutation join forces for a release born from the spirit of uncovering the unknown and searching for more even when you know you should have given up long ago. Futility in the face of adversity.
Each band offers up a long epic song which pushes the respective band into new and uncharted territory, approach with no expectations or preconceptions, empty minds will be filled to the brim and overflow.

CARVED CROSS-SELECTED WORKS 2 X CS NE-12
I wanted to clear up some information about this release. I originally made a double tape set to send out in a trade to a friend in Texas who had never heard Carved Cross before, this is what I made for him. As I needed to photocopy the cover I figured I would run a few extra off at the same time along with giving it a catalogue number. This tape requires a special double cassette case for it to be completed, so far I have only found one of these at a refuse centre, so at this point only one copy exists, I don't have one, MN and H don't have one either. When I find another case I will make up another one and so on until the covers I photocopied are all gone. This is by no means an essential piece in the Carved Cross discography, it is merely a way for those who are yet to hear us, hear us. It doesn't feature all of our material and has no material exclusive to it either. It will go out randomly to people I trade with thus giving them a chance to hear us if I think they would be interested in us. I apologise for any confusion surrounding this tape as none was intended.
If you have any questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

HOUSE OF APPARITION-S/T 7" $8
H.O.A's Tape from Triangulum Ignis gets the vinyl treatment from the ever incredible and reliable Crippled Sound records. Expect harrowing, caustic and vicious BM as H.O.A fly like a bat from the abyss. Devastating.
GREASY FAGGOT STARSHIP-FLACCID DREAMS CS $5
Winterreich Records first (and most likely last) foray into the seedy underbelly of child molesting Dance music. Greasy Faggot Starship harness beats, synths, keys and auto-tune to devastating effect crafting a masterpiece of delirious delusions and dizzying hip thrusts.
VETALA-SATANIC MORBID METAL CD $8
Some of Vetala's best work can be found on this, their first full length "Satanic Morbid Metal". Odd, fucked and flat out depressing these Portuguese purveyors of disgust further stamp out the spirit of LLN in these current and ruined times. Essential.
OBSIDIAN FOREST-PROJECTIONS CDR $5
Overlooked Australian BM depressers. Rotten, yet melancholic BM.
WINTERREICH DEADSTOCK TITLES ARE ALL SOLD OUT.
