JESU "Christmas" vinyl & CD pre-orders up now! + Contest winner and GREAT year-end updates!

We started the year with a release (TILTS) and now we’ll end the year with one…


SURPRISE: four of Justin K. Broadrick’s incredible sonic personalities within one impressive 12″ EP, simply titled Christmas. JESU lays the foundation with the initial hymn, along with brilliant remixes from related projects PALE SKETCHER and FINAL, plus an exclusive and brand new remix by the oppressive JK FLESH entity.

Originally self-released as a digital-only EP for Xmas 2010, the 35+ minutes of music within have been sonically upgraded by mastering wizard James Plotkin specifically for the two physical formats. Vinyl edition comes on complimentary ice-blue color wax housed in a glorious high-gloss full color jacket, CD edition also comes with high-gloss artwork and has an exclusive lyrics page.

* Each format is limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies
* Stream the full release now over at SPIN Magazine
* Available to pre-order NOW at the Robotic Empire – Online Store

We are expecting these to arrive at RoboHQ within the first week or two of December and plan to rock all the pre-orders right back out the door hopefully just in time for the holidays. If all goes according to plan, folks should be receiving their packages right around Xmas itself.

However, because the entire postal system gets bogged down around the holidays, it is impossible to guarantee things at this time of year… that being said, Priority Mail is recommended for affordable semi-expedited delivery.

This release has been in the pipeline for ages and we’re glad it’s finally (almost) in existence, even if so damn close to the wire. We’re thrilled to work with Justin K. Broadrick again and have plans to announce another JKB release in 2013.

Beyond that, it’s been a wild year with a lot of changes for us but we’re happy to say that some stability is finally on the horizon with new roots being put down (and/or in motion) after long periods of flux.

We keep chugging along with the Robotic Empire – Online Store and want to genuinely thank everyone who’s ordered from us this year, or… ever! We couldn’t keep this operation afloat without the direct support of our mailorder followers, and we really appreciate all of those who’ve stuck with us through the years or just found out about us recently. It’s getting increasingly difficult to run a label like ours in this “landscape” and blah blah blah, the same thing you’ve probably heard a lot of times by now… but at the end of the day, we are a small operation and sincerely appreciate everyone who’s helped.

Enough emo year-end-sentimentality, let’s get to the MUSIC: lots of cool new stuff joins this update, including a rad NEIL YOUNG t-shirt (the same image infamously connected to LYNYRD SKYNYRD), OLD MAN GLOOM‘s appropriately-timed Christmas re-presses, BONGZILLA, PROTESTANT, THE AUSTRASIAN GOAT, and BASTARD NOISE / MAN IS THE BASTARD vinyl, SUTEKH HEXEN‘s new album and collections release on wax, sinister tapes from NIHILL and HALLOWED BUTCHERY and surprisingly/awesomely a fantastic new TAIGA cassette which is Bryant Clifford Meyer’s solo project, our old dawg who is/was in such acts as ISIS, RED SPAROWES, PALMS and more!

On the re-stock tip we’ve got extensive Denovali vinyl imports aplenty, Magic Bullet essential re-ups abound, LSD AND THE SEARCH FOR GOD, more OLD MAN GLOOM on cassette and vinyl, plus some other random jibba jabb. Here are the full lists:

And last but clearly not least, we have picked a winner for our most recent contest: congratulations to Björn Bauer for his incredible and intricate tree drawing that wins our shirt-design-contest. We received some seriously amazing submissions (either for content, skill and/or ability to make us laugh) but Björn’s fantastic image hit the nail on the head. Check out his website for an extensive portfolio and more info on this great artist. Big ups to everyone who took the time and effort to submit something for this, it was a lot of fun going over all the entries, and (with their permission) we may post a few of the “runner up” images as well. We will post a larger version of Björn’s graphic when we announce shirt ordering info in the coming weeks… stay tuned!

BOOM! Great way to end the year. Hope everyone reading this can reflect on all the good things that have happened to them these past 11-12 months and let it percolate and overpower any bad elements of the year. OK OK enough hippy nonsense, don’t trample your fellow man or anything but Robo-capitalist scum still say “go buy our rotatable plastic circles!”

Robotic Empire launches BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY Kickstarter to release "For Smokers Only" weed-tribute album! +BIGass update (FALSE/BARGHEST split LP, tons of new distro stuff, etc)

It is with great amazement that we announce a recently-launched Kickstarter campaign in hopes of releasing a genuine BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY weed-tribute album on both CD and LP. This is obviously a unique release to come into our path, and we feel fully obligated to try making this a reality!


There have been none before or after that accurately compare to the exclusive quality and talent that is BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY, and to unleash this heady collection is a privilege we won’t soon forget. Renown globally with over 30 million(!) albums sold worldwide, BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY are true groundbreakers with their unique combination of heartfelt melody and street realism. A variety of vocal speeds and skills are mixed with infectious beats, resulting in unparalleled rap in both substance and style.

(CD artwork, subject to change)
Comprised of a magnificent crop of tracks from across BONE THUGS and members impressive catalogs of recordings, “For Smokers Only” is an incredible 12-track homage to their favorite medicinal herb. This “For Smokers Only” collection has never been available before on CD or LP, previously released earlier this year solely as a digital-download, and some of the material featured here will be made available in the physical format for the very first time! The songs found here are a dozen high quality nuggets representing BONE THUGS‘ fondness for imbibing in an age-old ritual that many of us also know and love. The full track list is as follows:

We’re doing this Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising enough funds to start manufacturing CDs plus both the standard edition vinyl-LP and deluxe DIE HARD edition LP of “For Smokers Only”, plus hopefully cover some licensing and legal fees, and basically just work with one of the most amazing hip hop bands on the planet!

This is a special opportunity to own BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY material on vinyl, as most of their albums that’ve been pressed on wax are now long out of print. In combination with the vinyl, a high-quality DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of “For Smokers Only” will be included with every LP ordered.

HERE IS WHAT WE PLAN ON MAKING:

* The CD will be packaged in a jewel case with full-color artwork.

* The standard vinyl LP will come on your choice of black or green vinyl packaged in a color jacket, and includes a high quality digital-download of the full album.

* The deluxe DIE HARD edition will come on limited “PURPLE HAZE” (purple-N-green) color vinyl housed in an oversized ziplock baggie, an exclusive “bud tribute” slipmat, a hand-numbered 11″ x 17″ screenprinted blacklight poster, stickers, 1.5″ button, full album digital-download AND bonus additional download of the “Everyday Thugs” album!

* A special limited vinyl TEST PRESS edition, plus the truly massive “VIP MEGABONE” option…

Important Note: THIS RELEASE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN NORTH AMERICA OUTSIDE OF THE LIMITED AMOUNT OF COPIES IMPORTED VIA THIS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!!

Because this release is being manufactured and distributed in Europe, pledge prices have been calculated to include the “import shipping” costs for USA orderers. People in other countries can order as well, please just see the “International Shipping” price section of the FAQ found within the Kickstarter campaign, as shipping for this release is a little different (and cheaper) than how we normally do things.

We’ve come up with a variety of different pledge options including super simple postage-paid CDs and LPs, wholesale options, the deluxe DIE HARD edition, a limited TEST PRESS option, plus an elaborate and crazy “VIP MEGABONE” $420 pledge option! Please see the Kickstarter campaign page for all of the details on everything we’re offering here.

This is running for one month and we’re basically aiming to treat it as an “elaborate pre-order”. Although this is the most we’ve asked for to date, after two previous successful Kickstarter campaigns under our belt we’re hoping this one will be a success as well.

That being said, the other campaigns definitely wouldn’t have gone as well without kind people helping us spread the word. Seriously, a post on Facebook/Tumblr/Twitter/your blog/whatever actually helps a surprising amount, and we’re totally down to hook up some bonus swag schwag at the end of this crazy thing if you wanna help us spread the word a bit. Just let us know at the end of the campaign if you posted something and we’re happy to juice it up.

Here’s the link, please share it!

Here’s a short one: http://kck.st/U9LsYQ

An audio medley with a handful of clips from the album can be heard here:

YEA-UH! That pretty much sums it up! This is easily one of the most exciting and wildest things Robotic Empire has attempted in our nearly 14-year history. We’ve talked about truly breaking out of our “comfort zone” genres for years, and what better way to do it than with a freakin BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY release?! Nobody (even us) was expecting this, so PLEASE help us make this thing a hit by spreading the word if ya can.

BONE BONE BONE BONE BONE BONE….

So obviously that is the biggest news for us in a while, but far from all we’ve been up to lately. Besides working on prepping the BONE THUGS project for kind of a while, we’ve been busy stocking lots of AWESOME new tunes for the Robotic Empire – Online Store.


Top on the list this time is the stunning FALSE / BARGHEST split LP, which our partner label Mirror Universe was kind of the catalyst for. A co-release with longtime brethren Gilead Media, this is one of the most blistering and relentless albums we’ve been involved with to date. Seriously incredible sophomore material from each band following two fantastic debut albums on Gilead last year, we are extremely stoked to have this in house and ready to rock. Dr. Broadcloak himself’s timely OCD has proven itself glorious once again with an incredible package with fantastic artwork, a large poster insert and appropriately heavyweight vinyl. Fans of the heavy: DO NOT sleep on this one!

* Available now in the Robotic Empire – Online Store

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

FALSE and BARGHEST announce split album (now streaming in full), extensive US tour by FALSE to follow


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.

* FALSE side: http://www.decibelmagazine.com/listen/streaming-false-heavy-as-a-church-tower/
* Cover art: http://gileadmedia.net/images/relic42/relic42.jpg

There you go, the entire split before your very ears. Pre-orders will come later in July via both Gilead Media and Mirror Universe/Robotic Empire.

Robo Kickstarter 2.0: Custom Care Packs and MEGA CHEAP lots aplenty!


Now we gone n dun it: another Robotic Empire Kickstarter has been launched! Why? Because we’re seriously out of room at RoboHQ and need to clear some much-needed space for upcoming releases aplenty.

We’ve dug through the archives and found some oddball items to offer up, plus we’re doing pick-and-choose CD lots for well below cost.

For real, $10 gets you 10 CDs, $20 gets you 25 CDs, $50 gets you 30 titles (including the 8xCD FLOOR set, new 2xCD AIDAN BAKER release and some other jammers). We’ve got test presses from ISIS, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP and TILTS, discounted damaged goods, an overstock-vinyl-lot, and will probably add some other jibba jab as it surfaces.

Total goal amount: $420

This is more of a space-making endeavor than a money making one, so please check it out as the deals are pretty retardo.


To please kickstarter’s guideline-enforcers, we are calling these “Custom Robotic Empire Care Packs” and will draw whatever madness you want on the box, sales receipt and/or anywhere else. This was surprisingly popular during our previous/first Kickstarter for the TILTS LP release (which is nearly sold out now too, we’ve got about 25 copies left) so we’re upping the ante this time and making it standard practice for all orders made via this campaign.

So get weird with it: Wanna see the Terminator hitting a gravitybong: DONE. How about a unicorn battling a dinosaur? DEAL. Or maybe a mystic wizard cooking up some pancakes? Strange, but OKAY. Basically whatever dumb stuff you can conjure up: we’ll scrawl it onto or within your package wherever we can.

Yes, this is goofy… but we’re trying to keep this space-making operation interesting, for both you and for us. So please hit up our Kickstarter page and help us make this happen! Gotta say too, the success of the TILTS campaign was heavily indebted to people posting it on their various social media outlets and forums… so if you’re willing to share this stupidity, we’ll gladly throw in some BONUS SCHWAG at the end of the campaign. Just let us know when we send out the “kickstarter survey” thing at the end and we’ll juice ya up!

THANKS!

ISIS and PG.99 represses & shirts, new NADJA shirt + FLOOR discography discount, a bat PEEING in TILTS/TORCHE guitarist’s EYE +lotsa new distro items!

This diverse update first sees us with two influential bands’ catalog items back in print, with vinyl from ISIS and PG.99 getting the re-press treatment. Although the sonic differences are significant, each group created a lasting legacy that still holds long after their disbanding.


ISIS‘ landmark albums Oceanic and Panopticon are both back in action on the 2xLP format, each with “reverse board” printing throughout (Oceanic getting the massive “tip-on” style jackets, and Panopticon printed via reverse-board for the very first time). The band requested simple black-vinyl for the entire pressing and after a smattering of variations over the years, this keeps things nice and simple.

PAGENINETYNINE reunited last year for a couple of well received and emotionally cathartic live performances. To celebrate, we issued their long out-of-print collections CD, Singles, on the overdue vinyl format. The entire pressing sold out, so a shorter run of 250 more on black vinyl have just been pressed to fill the remaining silkscreened jackets we had kicking around. In classic makeshift fashion, some copies come with the proper “printed innersleeve” that houses the vinyl, and some copies come with a xerox insert of the same artwork instead. Keeping it DIY to keep it in print!

Related, we also recently re-printed two classic PG.99 t-shirt designs. Most sizes are still available, although before even announcing their availability they started heading right back out our doors.

Again sonically different but equally recommended, in celebration of TORCHE‘s magnanimous new album Harmonicraft coming out later this month, we’ve decided to discount the closely-related FLOOR discography 8xCD set, Below & Beyond. Everything this seminal sludge-turned-pop outfit ever recorded is contained within this massive collection, and with the deluxe vinyl edition now sold out, this 8xCD release is the only (physical) way to own the monstrous amount of material these geniuii churned out.

The price is tightnice too, as if you enter the “FLOORTWENTY” coupon code at checkout, the price drop to, ahem, $20. Pretty galldarn good for 8 stacked CDs, a bigass 12″x12″ 32(!)-page booklet and a custom gatefold jacket holding it all together. BONUS SCHWAG: coupon-code enterers also get a free FLOOR 8xButton set as well, depicting all the album covers from the discography. If you’ve slacked on this crucial mega-release thus far, hit that up with the quickness as the discount+hookup only goes through the end of this month.

We also have a fantastic and enveloping new t-shirt design from our favorite prolific doom-couple, NADJA! The Berlin-via-Canada duo have teamed up with Berlin-via-Sweden tattoo artist HLG for this brilliant new shirt. Simple but stark, black ink printed on grey supersoft “Next Level” brand t-shirts. Need a new favorite shirt? Seek ye no further! This really is nice…

ALLLL that gravy and more is available NOW in the Robotic Empire – Online Store


AND last but most likely not least, some crazy mainstream news activity has been surrounding TILTS guitarist/vocalist (and TORCHE guitarist) Andrew Elstner’s recent run in with a rogue bat. A viral press bonanza has stemmed from a freak accident where a bat PISSED IN ANDREW’S EYE and things snowballed from there. There was a rabies scare, freaked out friends/family and subsequent emergency treatment… all detailed on MSNBC, MTV, BUZZFEED, PITCHFORK and more. This is too absurd not to share (you can’t make this kinda stuff up!)… so have at it if you’ve been under a rock:

Also significant: TILTS‘ infectious vinyl debut dropped about a month back and has sold swiftly (we’ve got roughly 50 copies left in house). You can get this unlucky man’s gloriously catchy music direct from us:

More new THOU vinyl & merch, plus a bigass/badass distro update!


(photo by Rich Gaccione)
TWO back-to-back THOU updates?! Not that crazy when you consider how freakishly prolific this monster outfit is, and we’re pretty hyped to have our hands in yet another release they’ve done. A bit less directly this time, but along with longtime brethren Gilead Media, the Robotic Empire – Online Store is the very first place to stock THOU‘s band-released *upgraded* vinyl repress of their latest album, Summit.


Thankfully this one is NOT a pre-order, as this bad mamma jamma is all done and ready to roll! Their latest doom/sludge masterpiece, Summit, was initially released on wax by Southern Lord, but now self-released by the band with some mild but important upgrades: all new plates, heavyweight tip-on style jacket with clear spot-gloss, heavier printed innersleeve (with corrected text and lyrics), NO mucking around with stickers, smokey clear 180 GRAM vinyl… overall we’re just talking a really classy package here.

That’s not to dump on the venerable Southern Lord’s pressing, which was solid. Its just that THOU has since ironed out a few OCD kinks on what they want to see within a fully realized package, taking knowledge gained from our recent The Archer & The Owle “megaEP” release and re-applying some sonic and aesthetic enhancements to their latest full-length offering.

That being said, this thing is freaking beautiful. An already massive album that is now probably a bit more in line with the true vision THOU has for this album. We’re honored to aide these fine southern gentlemen in any way yet again, and of course along with our awesome(ly organized) brother-in-arms at Gilead Media!


To commemorate the occasion (and others), we have beefed up our THOU shirt arsenal with a new ripoff of a classic PG.99 image… actually the first t-shirt we ever printed so many years ago! We’re still using the same great printshop who’ve always done us right and are happy to present this thing to you today. Alabama’s Mammoth Printshop printed our very first shirt for us a solid dozen or so years ago: a black owl and mustard yellow text on an athletic grey t-shirt. Here we are again with an homage to those days (comparison image here), with friends of all conspirators THOU delivering this classic ripoff tee.

In addition to that banger, we’re hoping to have another new design and one re-print in house before too long, but those didn’t quite make it in time for this update. No matter, there is a (potentially literal) TON of other new items and restocks for this update, including a slew of other very righteous vinyl and shirts.

Noteworthy new jams include the debut FALSE LP (sooooo highly recommended), BARGHEST‘s debut (ex/current THOU), DARK CASTLE‘s latest on color, GHOSTLIMB efficiency, the long overdue and most triumphant HARKONEN LP (finally!), MOLOCH, SUTEKH HEXEN, more(!) freakin THOU import LPs, TOMBS wax, mo’ Mylene Sheath glory, another rad COUGH shirt (exclusive to our mailorder) and lots more…

Restocks include the other gnarly COUGH t-shirt designs and ALL their vinyl releases, BARN OWL, a BARONESS re-press, CAPSULE‘s latest album on coloured vinylz, DROPDEAD x3, GEISHA, JUNIUS 2xLPs, MASTODON and more. Here’re the full lists:
