Blow Up That Gramophone is extremely happy to announce that Ghost Brigade has joined our roster. Ghost Brigade is preparing new album that will be released at the end 2014.
Ghost Brigade is an alternative metal band from Jyväskylä, Finland. The band was formed in 2005 and have since released three full length albums & one EP on Season Of Mist Records and toured the world with the likes of Enslaved, Amorphis, Paradise Lost, Samael, Intronaut, Insomnium and A Storm Of Light among others.
Beastmilk joins the almighty HIM on The Helldone On The Road tour. HIM will be touring Finland for the first time
since 2008. The other support acts are Pentti Kurikan nimipäivät and Odalisque. The tour will include four shows and end at the legendary Tavastia club in Helsinki on New Year's Eve.
Tour dates: 28 December Club Teatria, Oulu 29 December Rytmikorjaamo, Seinäjoki 30 December Pakkahuone, Tampere 31 December Tavastia, Helsinki
Lead by Hexvessel vocalist and main man Mat McNerney, Finland’s Beastmilk couldn’t be further away from the acoustic freak-folk sounds of Hexvessel – who have graced the Roadburn stages twice in recent years – purveying, as they do, a peculiar form of darkly throbbing ice-cold post-punk gothic desolation.
Possessed of the driving cavernous bass of Joy Division or Samhain, the pounding thwack of prime Jesus and Mary Chain, the razor-slashing reverb-drenched icepick guitar of early Misfits and the oblique strangeness and angular rock ‘n’ roll of Roky Erickson, topped off with Kvohst‘s Robert Smith-esque vocal, Beastmilk will chill you to the bone and make those bones dance.
The band will be releasing their debut album, the naughtily-titled Climax, at the end of this year through Svart Records – following the afore-mentioned long sold-out demo and an equally long-gone 7″ Use Your Deluge – which gives you plenty of time to get their driving gothic angularity buried deep into your heads before they hit the stage at Roadburn Festival 2014.
Beastmilk will play on Thursday, April 10th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Hailing from Kuopio, Finland, Jess and Ancient Ones are currently making waves in the underground, drawing their inspiration from (prog)rock groups of the classic era and old school heavy metal.
For a more specific recipe for creating their self-titled debut album, take the overtly satanic sermons of genre progenitors Jinx (Coven), add the guitar genius of psych lunatic Roky Erickson together with Robbie van Leeuwen's (Shocking Blue) fuzzy pop sensibilities, stir in the rhythm and drive of vintage Iron Maiden, and top with a web of interweaving guitar duels influenced by the classic Smith/Murray partnership and deeply rooted in 60s and 70s prog and psych.
With talented vocalist Jess as their enigmatic frontwoman, the septet will take Roadburners on a devastatingly rapturous journey through the self, the astral and the arcane consummated by those transcendent vocals, and this trio of rich guitars.
If that doesn't kindle your desire for a vociferous satanic ritual, we don't know what will!

12.01.2012 CURRENT 93 TO PLAY FINLAND FOR THE FIRST TIME
Calling themselves the Hallucinatory Patripassianist Gnostic Supergroup, they have released a series of seminal, intense, highly influential and utterly unpredictable and uncompromising albums over the years, from their debut NATURE UNVEILED to their most recent album HONEYSUCKLE ÆONS, as well as creating the world of Apocalyptic folk. David Tibet has worked with artists as varied as Björk, Nick Cave, Shirley Collins, Antony (who has covered one of their songs), Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Andrew WK and Rickie Lee Jones, who have all been part of the Current 93 family and appeared on their albums at one time or another. The present line-up consists of David Tibet as voice, Michael Cashmore as guitar, Baby Dee as piano, Alex Neilson as drums, Andrew Liles as electronics, Eliot Bates as oud and James Blackshaw as bass. Current 93 are unlike anyone or anything else, the Very Voice of Catland itself, drones and screams and sings and rings and the suns and the moons all at once.
