Koboloris remasters release date!

Friday 2nd September will be the release date for the newly remastered Koboloris debut album!

Usually there would be a long build-up of promo for these things, but we've been promising this re-release for a while now and as this band remains one of our most downloaded, we decided there was no reason to keep you guys waiting for weeks and weeks.

Just like the original release back in 2012, the remasters will be free to stream and download via our bandcamp page.

Whether you've been with us from the start or are new to Koboloris, there really is no reason not to head over there next Friday and grab the album - we guarantee its the best sounding version of this English Black Metal duo's first EP. There is even new album art which it will be our pleasure to reveal shortly.

Koboloris remasters arriving soon!

Since it's release in 2012, Koboloris's self titled debut EP has consistently been our most downloaded digital albums. Despite not having completed a new album since, support for the 2-man black metal band has not trickled to a halt, defying the laws of today's oversaturated world of digital music marketing, where an in-your-face promo plan is often required just to get any listens at all. So it strikes me, something musically must have really gone right, surely this band still has places to go, grand and grim new castles to build on the foundations of  a debut that refuses to die.

So, in order to deliver a tasty new morsel of audio delight to Koboloris fans, we are putting out a remastered edition of the debut EP!

When we recorded and produced the original back in 2012 (yes, that long ago!) production values were tight, equipment basic and experience somewhat lacking - we still made a worthy attempt, but some musical elements may have been lost in the muddy mixing and the hammer-smashed approach to mastering that went ahead. Now it is our chance to bring you the record as it should have been produced.

More details will be announced soon, with a digital release expected around the end of Summer 2016.

New artist: Meister

Its not every day that I have the pleasure of announcing a new band, but today is one of those days!

Meister is an Industrial metal band from York, England. Expect uncompromisingly heavy riffs, baritone vocals, lyrics like the darkest gothic poetry you could ever hope to stumble across, all over a backdrop of synth orchestras and cold mechanical beats. Did we mention a member of Miseria Visage is involved?!

There is no doubt that Meister marks a departure for Three Rooks, our first foot in the door with electronic music, yet at the same time there are undeniably strong metal elements to their sound.
You can keep up with the exploits of these electro-metal deviants on the Meister facebook page.

So what comes next? Meister are just about to start recording their first EP, which we will be bringing to your ears as soon as its hot from the studio! After that, its time to go on the hunt for live- perfomance opportunities, likely kicking off with club shows in their native UK, naturally we will keep you updated with all things Meister-related from now on!
