“In an alternate universe of proper 70’s-culture-worship sanity, BLOOD FARMERS ‘Headless Eyes’ title cut woulda been a cult hit. Not TOO big a’one, though; this shit’s edgy and evil even for an imaginary authentirocktopia.
Sabbath are older now. We need new metal in the arenas. Please, Satan, let it be bands like this! Let us reach for and acknowledge new, real royalty here; Dave, Eli and Tad have earned hellish thrones with this demon-u-mental rockument – a restoration of the genre, blood-soaked in vintage horror authenticism, like swampy, resurfacing 16 millimeter suppressed memories of satanic ritual sacrifice.
Oh – and do I even need to even tell ya’s the vinyl is the definitive format? Warm, loud, full, fuckin’…crisp. Beefy lows, unified – 5 out of 5 stars.” (review by Robert from SIEGE).”
Blood Farmers formed in New York City in 1989. Influenced by the downer-rock of Black Sabbath and the psychedelic horror films of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the band released its first demo, “Permanent Brain Damage”, on cassette in 1991. The recording became an underground hit among doom metal fans and established Blood Farmers as a cult band in the genre.
After sharing the stage with like-minded bands such as Saint Vitus, Internal Void and Grief, their second demo tape “Bury the Living, Harvest the Dead” (1994) caught the attention of German metal label Hellhound Records. Hellhound signed the band and released the self- titled “Blood Farmers” album in 1995. Cited as an influential underground classic by bands such as Electric Wizard and Church of Misery, the disc earned raves from Kerrang!, Rock Hard and other magazines…but Hellhound Records went bankrupt a few months after the release, and Blood Farmers disbanded for over a decade.
Interest from Japan’s Leafhound Records led to the CD release of “Permanent Brain Damage” in 2004 and a reunion gig in 2007 headlining the Doom Or Be Doomed festival in Baltimore. In 2008, promoting Leafhound’s reissue of their debut album, Blood Farmers toured Japan headlining over Church of Misery, Ogre and Eternal Elysium. Interest in Blood Farmers had grown through the years since the band dissolved, and these shows were packed with excited Japanese fans.
In 2009, drummer Tad Leger joined the group and they started brewing up new material. In 2011, Blood Farmers were invited to play at the Roadburn Festival as well as the Hammer of Doom Festival in Germany. During their first European tour, the band shared the stage with legends like Pentagram and Electric Wizard.
Upon their return they began tracking their new album, “Headless Eyes”. Released in March 2014 on the band’s Resurrection Productions label, “Headless Eyes” is both a doom-filled follow-up to their two previous efforts and an expansion into new territory. The album has been lauded by fans around the world, many feeling that the new material is
Blood Farmers’ best to date.

"RAJOITUS – RATSTAB split 7″ Vinyl EP
Coming Summer 2014… Rajoitus/Ratstab split 7” (PATAC Records/Reality is a Cult/ Riotous Outburst Records). Gone are the days when one side of a split got the wear…our extreme music scene(s) continue to explode with fucking awesome bands, and here are two on what has briskly become a sought after slab of duel-heaviness….Rajoitus is some killer classicist Britishesque politicore, speeding things up from there with 5 cuts of fist-shake and slam- inducing fast punk, pushing under vocalist Jani’s croaks of sincerity and outrage. ‘Maailma on Kaunis’ opens anthemic, ass-kicking to 110 mph…the band gets right to it with a head-smacking attack beyond verse-chorus-verse. Providence Rhode Island’s Ratstab spew hard on the obnoxiously noisy pummeling side of things with gut-churn adorned, larynx-stripping hatred from singer Scott, atop the band’s sickly excellent skull-bouncing hardcorebulence. Abrasive buildups to grand shrieks from rhythmic walls burning with feedback. Already receiving heavy airplay in my personal rotation. (review by Robert from SIEGE.)

"RAWHIDE ‘Murder One’ LP OUT NOW! Available on Vinyl/Digital
Swedish death punk ‘n’ roll rebels, RAWHIDE, are pleased to spew forth, Murder One, their first proper full-length, via PATAC Records.
Spawned over a decade ago by guitarist/vocalist Robert and Captain Twofinger, RAWHIDEtips its pints to the teachings of Motörhead, Turbonegro, Gluecifer and GG Allin. Following three self-financed demos, 2008’s Plenty Ain’t Enough compilation, and two 7”s — the Built To Blow and the Branded For Life, which Exclaim! fittingly baptized “a grinding assault of barreling punk rock ‘n’ roll injected with enough malicious metal to ensure there’s even more danger, intensity and cacophony than one would typically expect” — RAWHIDE is ready to release the proverbial hounds with the filth-ridden sounds of Murder One.
Comments the band in a collective belch: “God created this beautiful world in six days and it took us bastards only one record to destroy it all on our way to ruin.”
Recorded in 2012 at Sunlight Studios together with producer legend Tomas Skogsberg (Hellacopters, Backyard Babies, Entombed etc.), Murder One embraces the band’s adulation of classic punk, rock, sleaze and all things deviant with ten tracks of earnest, bar brawling bedlam made of blood, guts, beer and tainted ladies. Murder One will be released via PATAC Records digitally and in wax format in a limited run of 350 (100 red/250 black). For ordering info, point your browser HERE.
You can also sample the ruckus, with four tracks now streaming at the PATAC Records BandCamp page at THIS LOCATION.
