Hi everyone! We've got an announcement for a new release pre-order today along with a pretty stacked distro update that includes a GODFLESH Test Press!!, loads of Bridge 9 stock, the long unavailable FURNACE Doublewalker 12", along with too many other things to highlight. Please continue reading:

Two of the finest underground US metal outfits have teamed up for an unstoppable split album: BARGHEST and FALSE will release a stunning 12" LP this summer via Gilead Media and Mirror Universe, a "partner label" of Robotic Empire.

FALSE and BARGHEST come from drastically different worlds, and their individual approaches to black metal reflect this. BARGHEST hail from the swamps of Baton Rouge, LA and take the misanthropic "anti-human/anti-life" angle, delivering disgustingly abrasive, lo-fi metal. A lineup without bass, yet full of unflinching aggression and thickness. FALSE call the frozen landscape of Minneapolis, MN home, and with a foundation of synth-tinged European black metal complimented by a hypnotic atmosphere, create intensely eerie music.

For all of their differences, they also share some key similarities. Each group released a debut album in 2011 with Gilead Media/Howling Mine, and both were met with overwhelmingly positive response from zines, blogs, and fans. FALSE and BARGHEST also each contain an oppressive quality in their respective sounds. This is not music for casual listening, but more akin to a psychological journey through realms devoid of light or hope.

BARGHEST offer two tracks for the split. "Shifting Sands" is one of the first songs the band ever wrote, and is finally now available in a physical format. Although an older piece, it still possesses the aesthetic BARGHEST solidified for themselves on their Untitled debut album. "Inhuman Hatred" follows, a brand new song with obvious death metal influences. It carries a greater sense of focus and purpose than the material from their full-length, without abandoning their unique style.

FALSE have grown in unbelievable ways since their debut 12". Their single track on this split--"Heavy as a Church Tower"--clocks in at nearly 18 minutes, and stands as hard evidence that FALSE are quickly becoming an undeniable force within American black metal. The ferocious intensity from their debut is amplified here, and paired with a more mature sense of mood and atmosphere. Their side of the split is very much FALSE, evolved.

Artwork for this split album has been crafted by Bryan Proteau of Natvres Mortes Illustration, with LP jackets printed on heavyweight stock. A printed inner sleeve is included, and 800 copies pressed on 180gram black vinyl.

This release is now available to stream in full, with FALSE showcasing their material through the mighty Decibel Magazine, and BARGHEST on bandcamp.

There you go, the entire split before your very ears and pre-orders are up now on the Robotic Empire - Online Store. We expect to receive the records around the 2nd to 3rd week of August and will begin shipping orders out ASAP once they arrive.
