BT005 / Woman is the Earth – Thaw

Release Date: July 17, 2017

Limited editon of 66 hand-numbered copies.

Hey folks, we are happy to announce our fifth tape: Woman is the Earth – Thaw. After their last album “Torch Of Our Final Night” they now released their new EP on CD and Vinyl (Init Records / Sick Man Getting Sick Records). We had the great opportunity to release these three incredibly beautiful, dark black-metal tracks on tape.

The tape is wrapped in a heavy screen printed slipcase and contains a folded lyrics sheet. We would like to thank Jon for his support in adjusting the artwork to our tape layout.

Tracklist: A1 golden fog (5:27), A2 fear of light (6:13), B dream collapse (7:46).

All songs written, recorded, mixed and mastered by Woman is the Earth © 2017.

You can get your copy directly at the band’s bandcamp page as well as at SMGS. We also kept a very small amount for you to buy at our upcoming shows – or get in touch with us via email or facebook.

BT004 / WELK – Sein

Release Date: Jun 08, 2017
Limited to 66 hand-numbered copies.

The first time we saw WELK was at one of our shows (at this time under the name 3asseln), playing alongside with .leaves., I am my End and our pals Opaque. That was in march 2016 and they blew us away with their intense mix of hardcore and black metal; slower, melodic parts and pure rage.

At the beginning of 2017, when asking us if we want to do the tape-release of their six-song-monster SEIN, we needed a maximum of five seconds to say yes.

After some months of heavy rotation on our radio we are more than happy that SEIN is released and we could be a part of it. From the moving, powerful songs to the beautiful artwork by DER RABE, SEIN is in our eyes a great album.

The white tape comes in a jewel case and with a laser engraving. It is limited to 66 hand numbered copies that can be bought directly via the band or at one of our shows.

You should also check out the CD version released by Yehonala tapes.

Bharal Tapes, june 2017

P.S. At the mentioned show we asked Opaque if they could imagine to do a tape with us. It was the birth of Bharal Tapes and Welk joined it from the beginning.

A little bit late but here are the details of our first bharal tape. We are more than happy to release the first EP of Opaque. In our opinion, Opaque​ made a huge step forward with five incredible varied crust, post-metal tracks that feature some great post-rock parts. We hope there will be a full length record following soon!
