CRB013: Glorious Home – “Giving”

ghheaderWe are very happy to announce one of our upcoming releases!
There were a lot of things going on with the next three (011/012/013) and somehow 013 made it first, nevermind.

Glorious Home, the band that played together with Death Engine at our first Cruel Bones show some one and a half years ago, has put together those 4 songs of raging, filthy, in-your-face sludge, that bears the harshness of old school black metal and leaves you lying in the dirt.
Together with Meta Matter Records we are proud to release “Giving” as a smokey-grey 12″ coming with a beautiful screenprinted cover done by the band.
This thing is limited to 200 copies and will be released on 30.12.2016.

Trvefrykt Magazin shares a preview & stream of the EP, calling it “a mix of CELTIC FROST and DOPETHRONE” Read the full preview here:

Larkian – Iterations : Alterations – Preorder

…is here!

This stunning new record by Lausanne’s Larkian comes on 2×12″ vinyl with a screenprinted cover artwork and consists of four tracks. The creating process becomes concept here, as the album title implies: Shimmery guitar layers repeat themselves infinitely until completely washed out while subtle variations dominate the structure of those slow crescendos and create a very unique atmosphere – sometimes calmness, sometimes chaos.

We’ll ship all preorders out on the 9th of May. Don’t hesitate to contact us via email (cruelbones at if you want to order but don’t have a paypal account.

Further announcement

Things are getting busy, we have another 2 releases we can announce:

CRB008 will be the debut LP from Rue des Cascades, called “Odes to Love, Flames to Paris”. You can already listen to it here. The gatefold vinyl edition (limited to 200 copies) will be available through us in early Summer.

The album was recorded in two days and consists of two rather long tracks, which range between quiet and distant ambient/post rock sounds and disturbing, loud but yet dramatic outbursts – genrewise maybe to be classified as post-hardcore, maybe sludge, maybe even some “post black metal” or drone. The band’s focus on this release lies in the musical soundscape and the mood it transports – every note and each step to build up a certain tension was given the time and space it needed.


CRB009 is a new member to the family: Debutante delivers you 5 drony fuzzy pop songs on the newest outcome EP3 . Written with great talent, the melodies find their way through the thick dronelayers and noise, subtly and in haunting company of an almost fading voice, singing “about anxiety, depression and crippling, petty envy.”

We will have an ultra-limited version of 15 cassettes in April this year!


that’s it for now – much love
Cruel Bones
