The leipzig quintet was formed in late 2017 as a side project and brought to life as a full band in late december 2018. R. Josef consists of former members of Oaken Heart, WAIVE and was completed by screams of marburg’s finest in Yanos. The tape is wrapped in a handmade silkscreened sleeve outside and a slipcase-inlay on the inside. Cool beans!

Tracklist: A Old Fear (21:28) – B Black Despair (17:33).
Half a year after our last release we are very proud to present to you our next one: Shitshifter – Pyre.
Pyre is one of the best examples of what we love about music. It is a organic sounding fusion of complexity, rawness, filth, aggressiveness, pure heaviness and beauty.
The album was originally released on vinyl by PER KORO RECORDS in 2017 and after having them on one of our shows it was clear to us that we want to do a tape-version of it.
The beautiful artwork from the LP was transformed to the tape by our dear friend Thomas Lehmann.
The 66 black tapes are wrapped in folded, hand-numbered and hand-glued cardboard boxes from Dekor Labor.
If you want to get a tape, drop us a line on facebook or write us an email (bharal.tapes[at]gmail[dot]com). You can also get a copy at the Plattenbörse at the Black Label today (https://www.facebook.com/events/322441995033501) or at one of our next shows.
we are very proud to present to you our next release: Trace Magnette – Hoods Jinx. Trace Magnette is the collaboration between Eric Craven (known from Hangedup, HṚṢṬA and Silver Mt. Zion) and Damon Henry (known from Ruby Karinto). The seven beautiful instrumental and droney tracks were recorded in an intense three-day session. Read the full story on http://drophead.ca/trace-magnette-hoods-jinx/.
The tape was originally released by Drophead in 2015 and we had the opportunity to make a re-release and bring this tape to Europe with a new, beautiful artwork by @nikavanplanten, post-edited by Fishermans End. The tape is wrapped in a printed slipcase and comes with an semi-transparent insert and a download code.
If you want to get a tape, drop us a line on facebook or write us an email (bharal.tapes[at]gmail[dot]com). You can also get a copy at one of our shows (next date 06.07.18 with BAESTIEN, Ruins and WELK). If you live in Canada, there will also be a very limited amount of tapes available soon.
Some things might take a little bit longer than expected but this doesn’t affect the joy we feel to release our sixth tape: Lingua Nada – The もしもしSupermagic Compilation.
After our ways crossed a several times over the last 2-3 years, the idea for doing the tape was born while standing outside of the UT Connewitz at the Lala in Noise Fest.
The green glitter tape comes in a jewel case with a 2-flap J-Card, which gives you the possibility to choose your prefered cover.
The tape is limited to 100 hand numbered copies that can be bought directly via the band – a good opportunity would be their show on June 7th at TANZCAFÉ ILSES ERIKA (Facebook Event) – or at one of our shows (we kept a small amount).
We are very happy to announce our second tape release in 2018 – The Flying Cat EP by Angstbreaker, showing that hardcore is not dead.
Here is what the band says about it.
“2 years after the big line-up change Angstbreaker is back with the second record as a four-piece band. They actually recorded all songs one year ago but in 2017 the band was busy to release a by the date unfinished record from 2015 to raise money for refugees in Greece. It worked, the “Cold Faces (Gutmensch EP)” tape sold out, the band was able to hand over some hundreds of Euros to activists when they toured Greece last year.
The new “The Flying Cat” EP contains 4 new songs and one rerecorded track from the old days. As always it is the best music from the band so far because it is the new EP. Lyrics range from cops (Punk topic number 1), old and new nazis (Punk topic number 2), the “scene” (HC-ref alltime classic), environmental issues (a must have) to robots and artificial intelligence (what? maybe ranked on 6583?), so almost everything was checked. The band freed over 140 cats from the internet and asked them to pose for the cover because all skulls and bones were booked out with other artworks.
Angstbreaker is lucky enough to partner with 3 nice DIY labels from Leipzig to release the new stuff on vinyl (SM Musik), music cassette (Bharal Tapes) and CD (PCS Records).”
The fresh green tape comes with a download code in a folded and hand-numbered cardboard box from Dekor Labor with “MMXVI” from 2016 on the B-side. We made 100 of these beauties, which can be bought through Angstbreakers bandcamp page, at one of their shows or at one of our shows (watch out for information).
Once again we are happy to announce our next release and for the first time on tape: Bait – Sunburst.
The idea for doing a tape-version of this overwhelmingly good album was born after their show at the Stö in January 2017. It took us over a year to hold the result in our hands and it turned out wonderful.
The jewel case of the tape is wrapped in a heavy slipcase with a cut-out on the front and contains a screen printed J-Card. The artwork was made by Christoph Kämmerer and screen printed by Dekor Labor. The slipcases were handcrafted by us.
The tape is limited to 66 hand numbered copies that can be bought directly via the band or at one of our shows (we kept a small amount).
We are happy to announce our next tape release – “düster.morgen.land” by rhythmic ceremonial ritual.
After our “sullen night” show in January 2017 the first issue of rhythmic ceremonial ritual’s düster.morgen.land tape (Yehonala tapes) was sold out. We talked a bit with the band about this beautiful tape and came to the conclusion that we want to reissue the tape together.
Now, some months later, this wonderful piece of black metal is available again!
The white tape comes with a download code in a screen printed, folded and hand-numbered cardboard box. We made 100 of these beauties, which can be bought through RCRs bandcamp page, at one of their shows or at one of our shows (we only have a small amount).
Needless to say that you should catch RCR live, next chance is at the Wellenbrecher II today. Check out the really good line-up and support this place in Grimma.
