THOU – Baton Rouge 12" now available! +hella rare archive finds (ISIS, TORCHE, JESU, etc)


Quite a long time in the making (and many production headaches later), we are incredibly thrilled to announce our first vinyl release with longtime bros THOU. These Louisiana heathens have been cranking out a steady stream of sludge/doom gold since their inception a few years ago, and like fools we passed on releasing their debut album Tyrant, only to continuously regret it ever since.

Now though after years of talk, we finally put our money where our mouths are and deliver the good proper with this beautiful gatefold 12″ EP release. It’s an “EP” because it’s 4 songs total, but it’s also over 30 minutes of crushing music, set to the tune of the end of times. A seething ode to their city of inception, Baton Rouge, You Have Much To Answer For contains by far some of THOU‘s best material released to date. The perfect marriage of sludge, melody, doom, hatred and melancholy… this is powerful stuff, and we’re honored to present it to you.

Available on red or clear vinyl, this 12″ EP is for sale now in the Robotic Empire – Online Store

You can stream the bulk of the EP at our myspace page or download it (and everything else they’ve released) at the band’s website.

It’d also be a good time to mention the other recent vinyl releases we’ve just dropped from TIDELAND (Asleep In The Graveyard debut 12″), CAPSULE (Self-Titled collections 12″) and FLOOR (Below & Beyond discography deluxe box set), all of which are still available from us. The label hasn’t been this active with new releases in a LONG time and it’d help us heaps if you picked something up.

On that same tip, we dug up a bunch of personal archive stash stuff and put it up on the store. Sold out releases from ISIS (the box set!), TORCHE (first two LPs) and the BATTLE OF MICE / JESU split as well. It’s highly unlikely we’ll ever be re-stocking any of that stuff again, so strike now or forever hold your peace.

And last but not least, of course, are the new items and restocks to the Robotic Empire – Online Store. Two killer THOU splits restocked from our European brethern at Adagio/Vendetta along with their solid catalog titles (SALOME, INDIAN SUMMER) and always-quality new releases too (NADJA, SINALOA, etc). Another new YEAR OF NO LIGHT record, this time a crazy 2xLP import, and probably the only mailorderable copies anywhere of the old SNACK TRUCK demo 7″!

CAPSULE – Tape + Demo + Tour + More (collections) 12" & THOU – Baton Rouge cassette now available!

Whoa, things are INSANE here. Hot on the heels of the FLOOR - Below & Beyond box set completion + shipment madness and KILLER reunion shows, we’ve got another round of new releases and general chaos over here. We nabbed 25 more copies of the Below & Beyond 8xCD set from our distributor, but they’ve already flown outta here. We’re getting the remaining unsold band copies in a week or so, and that’s probably it. The deluxe vinyl version is still available, and we’re also scoring the band’s unsold t-shirts in roughly a week too.


Beyond Below & Beyond (oof, sorry), we are psyched to announce yet another Robotic Empire label release from a sick South Florida band. CAPSULE‘s collections LP, Tape + Demo + Tour + More, is now available after being several years in the making. 15 tracks of totally berzerker complicatedcore, or, everything these ADD maniacs recorded prior to the Blue album we released a couple years ago. The release turned out rad with super bright artwork and a high-gloss finish (ala Blue) too, with some pretty outrageous colored vinyl to top it all off. Pretty sure we ordered 200 of the “snow drift” and “slime mold” colors, and 800 of the “cola” which turned out a rad translucent brown. Actually, they all turned out pretty sweet! This is technically a pre-order since it drops in stores/etc on April 13th (so expect them to arrive around that date), but we’ve got them in house now and they’re good to go! Some tracks from that can be heard here (last 2 tracks) and/or ordered now in our Online Store.

We were supposed to also have the TIDELAND LP and THOU Baton Rouge vinyl for this update as well, but both of those have hit production snags and unfortunately won’t be available for a few more weeks at the earliest. Sons of Vesta has their copies of the killer debut TIDELAND album now (we co-released it with them) as does the band themselves, but ours are weirdly MIA for the time being. More on that soon…


In the meantime, we decided to drop a cassette version of the phenomenal THOU - Baton Rouge, You Have Much To Answer For EP since the gatefold jackets for the vinyl version have to be completely reprinted. UGH. The tape turned out cool though with black/white/red covers, a black & white cassette, plus a two-color patch for good measure. Limited to 200, this should hopefully tide you over until the vinyl edition is finally ready for real, hopefully in just a few weeks. Listen to this in its entirety on our myspace and/or the band’s website (along with everything they have released). This tape is available now in our Online Store.

Another healthy round of new items & restocks have been added to the Robotic Empire – Online Store as well, with a variety of good jams across the spectrum. Notable is the GET RAD stuff from Hyperrealist along with re-stocks of POLLUTION and RAEIN (both sold out quick last time). Also worth mentioning are the Red Cobalt label items imported from Japan (2 new, 1 restock)… they are expensive but deluxe to the max! Add in some crucial Hydra Head staples, a big pile of stuff we got from Ebullition and some other rando items… and this is a darnright stacked update! Here ya go:

New (semi-exclusive) THOU/HAARP split 7", holiday promo deal, lots of discounts, etc!


Well “tis the season” for crazed holiday madness. We sorta have a love/hate relationship with this pandemonium, and to keep a lil’ tradition going here we’re offering up another “Special Holiday Promotion” in the Robotic Empire – Online Store… kinda like last year’s, but a little better. Basically anyone who orders $50 worth or more of stuff can get 10% off and a free “Destroyer Zombies” Robotic Empire t-shirt too. Just let us know you’re preferred size and color (comes on a black or white t-shirt) and we’ll hook it up as long as the supplies last.

HOLIDAZE is the coupon code to get 10% off all $50+ orders, and here’s how you redeem it: Add stuff to your cart and check out as usual. After you sign in with PayPal, you get taken back to the Robo Store and THERE is where you enter in the HOLIDAZE redemption code, and right below in the “notes” box is where you should put in your preferred size and color for the free “Destroyer Zombies” t-shirt.

Also on the same topic: SHIPPING IN TIME FOR XMAS: People can kinda lose their heads a bit this time of year so we’re gonna spell it out plain and clear:

* All “media mail” orders placed after December 7th CANNOT be guaranteed to arrive before the 25th. This method can already be slow during normal shipping times, so yeah, Dec 7th is the cutoff date for “media mail”.

* Otherwise either “Priority Mail” or “UPS Ground” are the best way to go. Those both move much faster than other shipping methods, so please chose this if you are trying to get something quickly.

* ALSO: please tack on a few extra days for us to pack & ship your orders! This time of year gets especially hectic and due to the relatively small size of our operation, it can get a little backed up. Please allow a few extra days beyond just standard shipping time.

* THANK YOU! That’s probably the most important thing of all to note. We really appreciate you ordering from us for your friends/family/self/etc, so we gotta throw that in there. Just have to be sorta blunt about the other stuff too though so there’s no confusion.

OK gabba gabba gabba, blah blah…yammerin on and on. Here’s the cool part of the update: new stuff!


Guess what: a new THOU release! Looks like we’re gonna be one of the main distributors for the new Richmond upstart label Mirror Universe, and they’ve kicked things off right with a brutal (and extensive) split 7″ from bayou brothers THOU and HAARP. Baton Rouge vs New Orleans, and man alive are these some burly jams! The content of this 7″ is pretty much outlandish: classic apocalyptic woodcut imagery, a huge poster insert, a bigass booklet stapled to the interior of the jacket, and cool orangey red “fire” colored vinyl too. (click here for a larger photo of the whole shebang) Not a bad way to do things at all, and a very appropriate teamup of some of the heaviest bands coming out of the south right now. Pretty stoked on this jammer!

New THOU t-shirts, discounted items & more @ Robotic Empire – Online Store


When our southern brethren in THOU asked us if we wanted to handle the mailorder for their t-shirts, we didn’t hesitate for a moment. They like to keep their merch as inexpensive as possible for folks, but still high quality items that are sweatshop free. We’re now happy to announce that we’ve printed up four new shirt designs for THOU, all on American Apparel brand t-shirts, and we’re charging $11.99 for the majority of them (2XLs are a buck more). We’ve lowered the prices of existing Viking Warlock shirts to the same amounts as well. These are all available now in sizes Youth Large through Double Extra Large:

* THOU items in the Robotic Empire – Online Store

We will be announcing more info about forthcoming THOU releases in the next month or so (some preliminary details can be found in the Robotic Obscurities blog), but we’re very excited to be working with these guys! For anyone who hasn’t heard them yet, be sure to check our their website for an insane amount of content (including free MP3 downloads of every track they’ve released to date).

At a faster end of the metal spectrum…

Vice Magazine has a new blog post entitled “IT HAPPENED – I DRESSED UP AS CANNABIS CORPSE’S WEED MONSTER“, which pretty much sums up the post.

It’s worth a quick read regardless, and we figured this was as good of an excuse as any to knock a couple bucks off the CANNABIS CORPSE vinyl on our site, so we did. These LPs will be on sale until the end of the month:

That’s it for right now. Working on a pretty massive update for the Robotic Obscurities blog that I’m hoping to post in the next week or two… so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime:

Robotic Empire – Online Store

Exclusive THOU shirt now available, plus TORCHE vinyl & more…


We’re stoked to present an exclusive t-shirt from our burly southern brothers in THOU. This Viking Warlock design in appropriate grimness features almost-black ink on a slightly faded black t-shirt, so from the day you slip it on it looks like your favorite old faded shirt from years ago. It’s just as comfortable too, printed on a super fine-threaded Tultex brand t-shirt. This design is “exclusive” in the sense that no other online shops have this, but the band should have it on tour with them as well!

The front has THOU‘s gnarly bat logo with a crucial viking underneath, and the back has pillaging imagery with the explicit mantra at the bottom: “Eat. Fight. Fuck”. One of our favorite active heavy/doom/sludge bands going right now, to us THOU are legends in the making. The photo above is of the front and back of this beast. This is available now in the Robotic Empire Online Store in sizes Youth Large (XS) through Double Extra Large (XXL).


We are also pleased to announce that TORCHE‘s Self-Titled Reissue 12″ has been pressed for a third time and is now available again after a few months of unavailability. This time around instead of applying a sticker to the bag, we had them print on the bag itself… and although the difference is subtle, it’s nerdworthy enough for us to be psyched on it! Another difference with this pressing is that we opted to try the “planets” effect on one color version, albeit a little different. Small triangles of colored vinyl were inserted into the vinyl itself and the effect turned out pretty cool… and varied. A few examples can be seen in the photo above (along with a couple of our dogs). A slightly blurry but semi-hilarious closeup photo can be seen here (and at the bottom of this update). This (and literally tons of other TORCHE stuff) is available now in the Robotic Empire Online Store.


Besides that trippy triangle planet “pyramids” version, we also made four other color vinyl variations in attempts of complimenting the myriad colors in the gatefold jacket’s artwork. The pressing info for this third press is as follows:

* 200 on AUTUMN (red/orange/yellow tri-blend)
* 200 on DESERT (half translucent orange / half beer)
* 200 on ELECTRIC BLUE (dark blue / light blue swirl)
* 200 on PYRAMIDS (cokebottle green with small triangle inserts)
* 200 on SALMON (opaque pink / clear swirl)

If you’ve read all of this so far you are probably already familiar with the behemoth that is TORCHE, but in the off chance that this is the first time you’re reading about them, here is the formal description we wrote for this Self-Titled Reissue album:

Once described as “stoner pop”, Miami quartet TORCHE could just as awkwardly be called “doom pop” or “thunder rock”… but what all these clumsy words boil down to is simultaneously one of the catchiest AND heaviest bands to ever grace the worlds of metal, indie and underground music in general. Sound like hyperbole? TORCHE actually has their own patented “bomb string” tuning which is literally unparalleled in heavy music (past or present) and they use it liberally on this, their self-titled debut full-length album.

Easily the heaviest record Robotic Empire had released to date, never has a “metal” album existed quite like the mind-blowing debut release from TORCHE. Hinted at by members’ former group FLOOR, truly anthemic, triumphant and absolutely massive heavy metal has never been this undeniably catchy! With gloriously sung, harmonized and soaring vocal arrangements accompanying the most monolithic riffs of modern times, TORCHE reaches to push the envelope and then engulfs it in flames. Call it “stoner pop”or “exquisite brutality”… call it whatever you want. In the end, TORCHE are still a major force to fuck with, and undeniable leaders of an incredible new style of heavy music.

This is the deluxe, fully re-mixed and re-mastered edition of TORCHE’s debut album… which has been completely reworked from the ground up due to the band’s overall dissatisfaction with the original release. This new version is a much more accurate representation of the band with an even heavier (and clearer) mix than the original, also containing an all new bonus track originally recorded during the initial tracking (but only recently receiving some absolutely epic vocal treatment). Robotic Empire is genuinely proud to re-release this incredible album… the vinyl edition having a beautifully appropriate gatefold jacket, full color printed inner sleeve and limited colored vinyl. This is also our first release with printwork directly on the bag itself! Enjoy!

The song “Mentor” from this album can be heard online here.
