"Load the chamber, spin the cylinder, and pull the trigger": THE SLUDGELORD PREMIERE of "The Black Kaleidoscope" by Vorvan

Over the last 12 months I couldn’t fail to be impressed by fast emerging German DIY label WOOAAARGH, an imprint that first came to my attention with the release of the crushing album “Grim Love” by Grim Von Doom, they are label specialising in hardcore punk/metal.  Over the last few months we have featured three of their most recent releases, the excellent God  Mother/Artemis split, While Sun End’s new full length and only last week, we debuted the misanthropic maelstrom of Implore and their 5 track scarifying EP, “Thanatos”. 

With those releases in the bank, the momentum of WOOAAARGH shows not sign of wavering, indeed on October 14th 2016 the label will co-release “Once Love Was Lost” , the new album from Vorvaň.   Formed in Moscow, Russia in 2009 by guitarist Eugene Cherevkov, the band went through several line-up changes before settling into its current line up.  Since their inception it wasn’t long before Vorvaň began to build up a solid buzz in their native country and as a result they have shared the stage with heavyweights such as Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror and Walls of Jericho.

Despite the fact they have unleashing their brand of anarchic punk since 2012, Vorvaň remain relatively unknown outside of their native Russia, until now that is.  Musicians most notably from Converge and From Ashes Rise, took part in making “Once Love Was Lost” become a reality and as a result the album will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the best albums of 2016, as ‘Once Love Was Lost’ represents a new era for the band.

So if you’re fan of Converge, Trap Them, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Disfear, load the chamber, spin the cylinder, and pull the trigger, as we unleash the album track “The Black Kaleidoscope

'Once Love Was Lost' will be released on Gatefold 2LP, accompanied by a mammoth 32-page Booklet and available in the following colours,  200 silver & black mixed,  200 solid white and 100 doom black .  It can be pre ordered here
