The first release on my cassette label Phase Velocity is a split cassette with legendary American noise rock band Halaka.
Halaka's side features the 32 minute epic "Terminal Inside" - a track that goes from skewed rock to delicate folk to thrash metal to audio vérité and more. It's fucking amazing. There's also a great uncredited bonus track afterward.
My side features songs influenced by punk ("Revolt!"), industrial ("In a Fog"), pysch-folk ("In Rivers She Dreams"), ambient ("Ambien") and more. "Revolt" can be heard here: bit.ly/1yL1bDM
also an excerpt from Halaka's "Terminal Inside" can be heard here: bit.ly/1k8MyaE
This is a tape only release, limited to 30 hand-numbered copies.
A little more about Halaka...
Halaka have existed since 1980, having previously (and quite briefly) been the punk band Motherload. Their behemoth of a back catalog includes many album based in noise-rock, avant and improvised/experimental rock, but they can also show a surprisingly melodic and gentle side. They can be confounding, brilliant and brilliantly confounding. Why they are not recognized as one of the greatest experimental rock bands of all time is a complete mystery.
