Converge "Jane Doe"
Format: Deluxe Gatefold 2XLP

Originally released during the turbulent times in September 2001, "Jane Doe" was one of the darkest, bleakest, and most punishing acts of musical emoting ever committed to tape. "Jane Doe" took Converge's musical aggression, creativity and penchant for artistic nihilism-as-therapy to unparalleled emotional depths. While unmistakably Converge in sound, it reached harsher and more emotionally draining levels of abuse, relenting on, but not entirely abandoning, technical precision to focus on emotional upheavals and an all-or-nothing buffeting.

In the end, aggressive music would never be the same, as this 12-step conceptual journey of despair and loss, raised the bar musically and visually for the genre forever.

Later this year, Deathwish (under exclusive license from EVR) will reissue the classic "Jane Doe" album on vinyl format. Available or the first time in over 6 years, this 2XLP will be specially packaged in a Deluxe Gatefold sleeve and will be accompanied by a stunning 28 page full size booklet. The release will also feature a variety of vinyl color variations, appealing to collectors and audiophiles alike.

Acid Tiger "Self Titled"
Format: CD, LP, Digital

Acid Tiger are a Brooklyn based progressive rock/punk hybrid, featuring Converge/United Nations drummer Ben Koller, and guitarist Lukas Previn (United Nations, Thursday, The A.K.A.s) among their ranks. With an energetic sway and swagger Acid Tiger effortlessly meld together a wide variety of tested influences into one truly unique and awesome animal.

Recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, Acid Tiger's self titled debut is about as eclectic and vibrant as they come. Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes vocal sass, All/Descendents influenced fretboard gymnastics and drumming, and the soulful darkness of The Cult and Murder City Devils are all apparent in their collective roar. All of it executed with a passion and fervor that is inspiring, captivating, and dare we say, fun?

108 "18.61"
Format: CD, LP, Digital

"18.61" comes from the 61st couplet of the 18th section of Bhagavad Gita.

Ishvarah sarva-bhutaanaam, hridesh-'rjuna-tishthati
bhraamayan sarva-bhutaani, yantra-rudhaani maayayaa

Which means:

"The controller of all
Lies at the heart of the machine
And connects it's wires
To the living being who is under it's spell."

Recorded over a frigid weekend in Boston, MA in the analog domain of Alex Garcia Rivera (ex-Give Up The Ghost) and later mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge), 108 have returned with their most electrifying and intense album to date, "18.61". From the first tension filled notes struck in "God Talk", it's apparent that a spiritual restlessness and awareness continues to writhe in the collective consciousness of 108 which is an attribute that has set them apart from the rest of the musical world since their inception. From there "18.61" pounds forth with the upmost intensity. Standout track "Crescent Moon" races at manic speed before crashing in on itself in one of 108's heaviest moments ever. Title track "18.61",  a moving and brooding song that is as unforgettable as they come, combines all of the unique musical qualities that make up 108. The gritty "Reduced" showcases new drummer Mike Justian (Trap Them, Unearth, etc.) as the new heart at the center of the 108 machine, rhythmically pushing the envelope with his punishing percussive power. Though the aforementioned songs are electric in every way, it's in some of the more daring tracks that "18.61" truly starts to really shine. "Mannequins" and "Forever Is Destroyed", for example, pick up where classics Black Flag and Rollins Band left off, taking frantic and unpredictable sonic turns that only a band like 108 could navigate. All of this makes "18.61" yet another stunning album from a band that continues to write their own destiny as one the most important and influential hardcore/punk bands in existence today.

Rise And Fall "Our Circle Is Vicious"
Format: CD, LP, Digital

Four years since the release of "Into Oblivion", Rise And Fall have now completed their circle. On October 27th, Rise And Fall will release their highly anticipated new album "Our Circle Is Vicious" on Deathwish.

Recorded at God City studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Disfear), "Our Circle Is Vicious" is Rise And Fall's rightful return to the throne as the kings of dark, ominous hardcore. From the opening barrage of "Soul Slayer" and "Built On Graves" the evolution of Rise And Fall is absolutely stunning. Heavier and harder than ever, it quickly becomes apparent that every aspect of their musicianship has grown leaps and bounds in recent years. Guitarist Cedric Goetgebuer balances bone shattering heaviness and unorthodox melodies unlike any other musician today. Bringing each song to post-apocalyptic life with an electrifying intensity. All of this is complimented by Bjorn Dossche's emotional vocal outpouring as it spills across the album with unforgettable realness. Rise And Fall continue this musical battery throughout, however it is when they unleash the dynamic "In Circles" and the epic closer "Knowing" that the true scope of their creative vision sinks its teeth in. Both songs utterly haunting, moving, and unpredictable in their unique twists and turns. Blurring the divisions and dismissing the limitations that exist within much of contemporary heavy music.

All in all, Rise And Fall's "Our Circle Is Vicious" is a stunning artistic achievement. One that will surely cast a shadow over the aggressive music world for many years to come.
