The brand NEW full-length from Kentucky’s raging horror punk metal masters, HOOKERS!
The new album is a blistering onslaught of some of the BEST new horror metal around today, like a mix of SLAYER’s Reign In Blood with THE MISFITS Earth AD! This album is NON-stop brilliance from start to finish! A must for fans of catchy, horror-inspired music that makes you rage like a lunatic! Cover art by wicked horror artist, Josh McAlear!
“THE HOOKERS are back with a raging vengeance… and ready to fuck you up.” -Rue Morgue Magazine (4/5 Skulls)
“Something’s extremely catchy with the new HOOKERS Patac is pimping. Steeped in a cauldron of toxins left by the band’s back catalog and heritage of heaviness, It’s Midnight is the bloodthirsty culmination of these veteran rockers’ sadistic expertise and relentlessly sociopathic punk passions. The album has a real classic feel; joyously morbid and instantaneously anthemic, with the show-stopper bombast of each of these 13 visceral death-knells soaring over carnage-darkened gaff hooks of guitar riffage. Adam Neal on lead shredded larynx, snarls and bellows murderous laments and death threat screeches at the helm of a traditional, careening hard rock horror machine. Satanic balladry and revenged crazed- retching feature prominently, to truly uplifting effect. Heavy gallops stomp home with grim shrieks and fist-shakes in the timeless, dark formula of rock and fucking roll. After a long death march strewn with dead posers, to have the journeyman lay their best at listeners’ feet like this is an act of generosity and greatness. As usual , the ‘bonus track’ is my personal favourite, “Teenage Blood” is the drinking song of Summer 2015 and beyond, and after heavy circulation It’s Midnight… goes with the heaviest of my new records.”
–Robert from SIEGE
“This is probably the best pure punk album I’ve heard in quite some time. It fuckin’ kicks ass and then some. Oh yeah, it’s plenty metal too…and again if you have a problem with that, don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya on the way out. The Hookers are an institution for a reason. They know how it’s done, and It’s Midnight…The Witching Hour, goes to show that they are aging like a fine bottle of Absinthe. In fact a few shots of wormwood should go nicely with the listening experience. Killer shit! ” – Hellride Music
“It’s Midnight…The Witching Hour is catchy, offensive, glorious horror metal and you need it in your life.” – Crows ‘N Bones

"Blood Farmers – Headless Eyes VINYL LP – Now Available
Unquestionably one of 2014’s finest doom releases, Blood Farmers‘ long awaited studio return, Headless Eyes, is set to be released tomorrow on vinyl through PATAC Records. Their sophomore outing and first with drummer Tad Leger (ex-Toxic) alongside bassist/vocalist Eli Brown and guitarist Dave Szulkin (also of The Disease Concept), it’s an unpretentious slab of classic-minded horror doom, rife with memorable tracks like its sprawling 10-minute title cut and “Gut Shot,” but immersive, eerily psychedelic and spiraling continually downward.
Since Headless Eyes was 19 years in following-up Blood Farmers‘ self-titled debut, your guess is as good as mine when they might get around to putting out a third one, so all the more reason to note the occasion of the LP coming out. If you haven’t heard it yet — and I’m sure you have, because you’re up on it like that.
ORDER THE VINYL: http://www.patacrecords.com/distro/Blood-Farmers-Headless-Eyes-LP
Blood Farmers ‘Headless Eyes’ will be hitting stores worldwide 12/09/2014! Be sure to pick up the doom metal masterpiece on vinyl!
150 on Red Vinyl -SOLD OUT-
450 on Black Vinyl
“Who would have thought that the within doom circles well appreciated band Blood Farmers would ever release a follow-up to their ‘Blood Farmers’ debut? Okay, the band had reunited in 2007 and did play live quite frequently, but unfortunately bass player Dr. Phibes passed away in 2010. Vocalist Eli Brown took over bass duty and the band continued with in 2009 on drums Tad Leger. Tad Leger, you say? Yes, the tad Leger of Toxik’s two albums fame. First technical thrash and now doom, that is a different ballpark entirely. In 2011 Blood Farmers even played at the renowned Roadburn festival. But at the time I didn’t expect any new studio work. Pleasantly surprised I was that nineteen years after their debut there is now a follow-up in the guise of ‘Headless Eyes’ in front of me.
But will the band be able to achieve the same level as before? Well, I shouldn’t have worried for a second. What a scorcher of an album ‘Headless Eyes’ turned out to be. Still traditional doom in the vein of Saint Vitus and Internal Void with quite a bit of stoner. Six absolute top songs is what this album contains, be it the title song or the instrumental ‘Night Of the Sorcerers’ which clocks in at over ten minutes or closing cover song ‘The Road Leads To Nowhere’ which is taken from 1972 horror film ‘The Last House On The Left’. All doom diamonds of the purest form. ‘Headless Eyes’ is up to now the doom album of the year for me and I am of the opinion that this album can become a true genre classic. I am as happy as a kid in a sweetshop with the return of Blood Farmers in recorded form.”Limited to 600 copies. 150 copies on opaque red vinyl, 450 copies on black vinyl. All copies include a double-sided ‘grindhouse’ insert and 5″x5″ sticker of the cover art.
Originally formed in 1989, BLOOD FARMERS combine the atmosphere of ’70s horror with heavy doses of psychedelia and doom in the tradition of BLACK SABBATH and SAINT VITUS. The band’s 1995 debut on the legendary Hellhound Records has been cited as an influential underground classic by such bands as ELECTRIC WIZARD and CHURCH OF MISERY.
BLOOD FARMERS‘ current lineup includes Dave Szulkin (guitar), Eli Brown (vocals) and Tad Leger (drums; ex-TOXIK).

"Rajoitus – Ratstab split 7″ Vinyl EP – Now Available
"Wormwood – S/T out now on CD with limited woven patch! Exclusive from PATAC Records

In 2005, band members Chris Pupecki and Chris Bevilacqua represented one half of the progenitors of Black Thunder, the debut album from Northeast perennials, Doomriders. Pupecki played guitars and Bevilacqua handled drums. Nine years later, the duo have come back together to unleash a sound and a vision much, much farther out on the plains of annihilation than either had gone prior. Recorded 100% analog by Alex Garcia, you will simply not be hearing the sounds of Wormwood on Apple commercials, in romantic comedies, or overhead while walking through the mall. Song titles and lyrics like “Hollow Black Eyes” and “I’d Rather Die” obviously convey a very specific worldview and outlook. The sonic attack is harsh, the vocals are unapologetically negative, and it’s all destructively perfect as the needle digs in across the vinyl expanse of this stunning debut. If albums from Winter, Warhorse, -16-, Old Man Gloom and Graves At Sea frequent your habitual deafening, WORMWOOD should be next in line. – EARSPLIT PR
“Wormwood is a band that is both old school but fresh. Their Celtic Frost influence brings out a groovier sound in an already kick-ass, heavy band. In the current sludge world Wormwood are one of the best bands to watch out for. For an EP this is a crusher. It’s too bad the piece only clocks in around 18-minutes. Still, consider this indoctrination.Wormwood are one of the most promising bands that the sludge genre has to offer.” -Echoes and Dust
“The almost black metal flavour and sampled sounds are akin to the likes of Old Man Gloom, or even experimental Celtic Frost, as they lend crushing weight to the strung out droning doom sounds and helps raise them above the average Doom pedlar through sheer spite alone. Add to that an impressive drum and guitar breakdown and interplay and it is safe to say that the sonic attack delivered by the band is deliciously visceral yet extremely listenable at the same time.” -The Sleeping Shaman
WORMWOOD and the rest of the PATAC Records catalog is available for wholesale distribution through INDEPENDENT LABEL DISTRIBUTION.
