Conan / Bongripper split LP preorder now live!
We are very proud to announce the launch of preorders for the forthcoming Conan/Bongripper split LP, released April 22nd. No t-shirts, no colour variations, just doom and sludge on heavyweight black vinyl.
Released in celebration of the bands forthcoming UK tour, Conan and Bongripper are real men who know how to use real amps and really detune to drop F. In other words they are actually good, for people with a modicum of patience and taste.
Delivering just a single track each, yet still clocking in at a cumulative running time of just under 30 minutes, this is an expansive miasma of molten hellfire harking back to the spirit and ethos of where Holy Roar Records started with releases such as the Bloody Panda/Kay Dot split 12”.
Whilst Conan unravel a taut, concise proboscidean refrain to its heaviest expanses over 17 minutes, Bongripper indulge us with electronic and noise flourishes before unleashing slurries of depth-charge anti-shred upon us.
There is nothing here for the frail. Come forth thou mighty riff.

Brutality Will Prevail 'Scatter The Ashes' 2nd Pressing preorder
Recorded at Studio 6 in Swindon with Stu McKay, and mastered in New York by Alan Douches (Converge, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan), SCATTER THE ASHES marks BWP’s finest hour. Drawing influence from doom, sludge and metallic hardcore, the BWP assault is one like no other: as visceral as it is accessible, the quintet effortlessly blend snarling riffs and devastating grooves with Ajay Jones’ unique but distinctly memorable vocal hooks to create an gloriously grim wall of sound, crushingly heavy and anthemic in equal measure.
As a mouth-watering taste of this explosive new opus, BWP unleashed first single The Path as a free digital download in August 2012 and promptly drove their loyal fanbase to boiling point, picking up support from Radio 1‘s Dan Carter and Jen Long in the process, despite its uncompromising heaviness. Meanwhile, the single was playlisted at Kerrang Radio, and its accompanying video racked up a playcount in the tens of thousands.
In the build-up to the album’s release, BWP toured the UK in October 2012 with those “Keepers Of The Faith”, hardcore legends Terror, the pairing having already spent the summer laying waste to the European club and festival circuit.
Prepare yourselves for this next chapter in Brutality Will Prevail’s history; the underground is theirs, now they’re coming for the rest.
PREORDER, DUE TO SHIP EARLY MARCH, SHIRTS MAY FOLLOW SLIGHTLY LATER. EXACT DATE FORTHCOMING. PLEASE BE PATIENT. INSTANT DOWNLOAD WITH ALL PREORDERS.

500 x Vinyl LP in gatefold sleeve.
