Migration Fest 2016 Announced

20 Buck Spin and Gilead Media will join forces in Summer 2016 to present the inaugural Migration Festival in Olympia, Washington. Jointly conceived by the two labels, Migration Fest will primarily showcase bands from each label's roster, as well as select other affiliated and respected artists.

The festival is set to take place at the historic Capitol Theater in downtown Olympia on August 12th, 13th, and 14th. Confirmed bands include Auroch, The Body & Krieg collaborative performance, Christian Mistress, Dead To A Dying World, False, Fórn, Full Of Hell, Khemmis, Kowloon Walled City, Krallice, Mutilation Rites, Nightfell, Obsequiae, Pale Chalice, Thou, Vastum, Vhol, And Yellow Eyes.

Approximately six additional bands, including some headliners, will be announced later. There will also be separate after-shows to occur at a smaller local venue. Ticket information, including price and on-sale date, will be announced in the near future.

20 Buck Spin founder David Adelson comments: "I'd heard Adam (Bartlett, Gilead Media boss) was thinking of coming West to do the next iteration of Gilead Fest. I'd been thinking of doing something similar myself for years but never had, and so suggested we join up and do something together. Adam was immediately receptive and the idea for Migration Festival was born right then. Olympia felt right since I'm already based here, and because of its small size and walkability this is a great place to have it, both for locals, and for out-of-towers.

Says Adam Bartlett, "After two successful installments of my own Gilead Fest in this small Wisconsin town it seemed like the time was right to branch out and try something different. The idea to work with Dave and his label on a collaborative event makes perfect sense given our similar music backgrounds and diverse, but complimentary label families. And Olympia serves as the perfect central location for this type of festival." More...

Obsequiae Announces New Album

20 Buck Spin is honored to announce the upcoming second full-length recording from medieval cult Minnesota metal outfit, Obsequiae. The label comments:

"Last year, 20 Buck Spin released the first vinyl edition of Obsequiae's masterfully unique 2011 debut album, 'Suspended In The Brume Of Eos.' Perhaps the only band that might fit as well on a label like Harmonia Mundi as on 20 Buck Spin, the band now re-emerges with 'Aria Of Vernal Tombs,' having painstakingly shaped their second opus over four years in the same way an expert woodworker plies her trade to craft singular works of exquisite beauty.

"As before, traditional medieval source material, this time interpreted via Obsequiae's Vincente La Camero Marino's sparse, sorrowful harp pieces, appears throughout Aria Of Vernal Tombs providing a foundation on which to base the longer metal-based sagas that form the album's core. Black metal, death metal, traditional heavy metal and medieval music are all weaved seamlessly together in baroque yet abrasive reverence on Aria..., resulting in a remarkably original long-player.

"With a wet clarity to the incandescent production that cites underrated obscurities like Sacramentum's 'Far Away From The Sun' and Eucharist's 'A Velvet Creation,' along with the early works of Varathron, Samael, and Rotting Christ, the atmosphere created on 'Aria Of Vernal Tombs' brings to 2015 what such bands strangely but sincerely captured years ago. Every sound and shimmering tone is intentional and essential to this rite of Spring." More...

Obsequiae Signs With 20 Buck Spin

20 Buck Spin is proud to announce the signing of American metal outfit Obsequiae. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Hailing from the great Northern end of Minnesota, the band creates a unique, organic blend of dark, melodic black and death metal infused with traditional medieval music.

"Obsequiae's debut album, Suspended In The Brume Of Eos, was released on CD via Bindrune Recordings in 2011. Having remained an in-house favorite since its initial release, 20 Buck Spin is proud to confirm the upcoming release of Suspended In The Brume Of Eos on vinyl for the first time on May 27th. Repackaged with new artwork the new vinyl edition will act as a reintroduction of Obsequiae in advance of the band's anticipated second LP, which will surface on 20 Buck Spin later in 2014.

"Conjuring images of a medieval Europe where modern life has yet to infringe, Suspended In The Brume Of Eos harkens back to the pre-wimp-out melodic Scandinavian death metal of the 1990s; dark, aggressive, conscious of songcraft and unintimidated by complexity. Their deep knowledge of European traditional music and instrumentation is evident throughout, particularly in the ornate, colorful interludes that tie the album together like tapestries in a ruined castle."
