Out now: Gallower – Behold the Realm of Darkness

Greetings Jawbreakers!

The LP version of Gallower’s Behold the Realm of Darkness is now officially released. Great Polish thrash/speed power trio with a blackened vibe. Also available on all major streaming platforms (Spotify, Youtube, Apple Music, Bandcamp etc) if you want to listen before you buy. Check it out!

Gallower is a Polish witching blackend thrash band formed in 2015, inspired by such bands as Destruction, Kreator, Sabbat (UK), Sodom, Mercyful Fate, Slayer and Venom. All the lyrics on the 41 minutes long debut album Behold the Realm of Darkness are interlinked and take place in the dark and eponymously named land of Gallower. This is a unwelcoming place ravaged by the black death and populated by witches, necromancers and inquisitors.

Three new LP pre-orders open!

Today is a good day, as we can proudly present none less than three vinyl pre-orders for upcoming Jawbreaker releases. Only old-school and underground metal of the highest quality, as always!

Acid Blade – Power Dive

Acid Blade is a powerful Heavy Metal outfit from Dresden, Germany, risen out of the ashes of the previous project Angel Blade. While the demo released under that name got great reviews, listeners should not just expect “Angel Blade II”. Instead, this is a much heavier and more dynamic band, with influences ranging from 70s Hard Rock and NWOBHM to US Metal, Thrash, and Punk. While mashing together different styles, Acid Blade‘s sound remains raw and honest, which paired with the characteristic and versatile voice of frontman Klay Mensana will not disappoint any fan of their former work. Acid Blade is not reinventing the wheel but is consequently continuing to turn it. This is Heavy fucking Metal as it should be!

Aquilla – Mankind’s Odyssey

Aquilla is a heavy metal band that was founded in 2015 in the heart of Poland and it’s capital city – Warsaw. The band’s main theme is a blend of science-fiction and 80’s aesthetics. Every aspect from lyrics to stage performance is connected by the band’s original lore, a sci-fi universe that is highly inspired by both old-school and nowadays pictures such as 2001: Space Odyssey, Dune, Alien, Bladerunner or Interstellar. Aquilla aim to bring to the audience a futuristic story of a mankind that has left Earth and ventures through the unknown in order to find a new place to live long and prosper. This epic story was begun already on the EP pair consisting of The Day we Left Earth (2017) and Saviors of the Universe (2019, released on cassette by Jawbreaker Records), and is now given not just another chapter, but a taken to a whole new dimension in the form of the band’s first full-length album, Mankind’s Odyssey. This is something you don’t want to miss if you are into fast-paced, old-school sounding heavy metal with extraordinary high-pitched vocals.

Gallower – Behold the Realm of Darkness

Mystic Storm LPs are back in stock!

I know that many of you missed the chance to grab the Mystic Storm LP that came out on Jawbreaker Records in October 2021. But fear not, as the second pressing just arrived at long last, so now you have a new chance.

Mystic Storm hails from St. Petersburg, Russia, and plays a unique style of thrash mixed up with ultra heavy Bolt Thrower riffs, powerful vocals and wild speed metal melodies. The lyrics mostly concern leather-clad barbarian warriors and ancient evils from the world of Robert E. Howard and are sung in the Russian language. Musically traces can be heard of Manowar, Heavy Load, Bathory, Ария, Powerlord, Vio-Lence, Sentinel Beast and Immortal – but all mixed up in a fresh new way. This might be the best underground album to surface during the 20’s.

The second pressing of the LP comes with an improved design compared to the first pressing, available on white or black vinyl. Same great artwork and music though! The first pressing sold in less than a month, so make sure to be fast as a shark if you want a piece of sorcerous thrash metal!
