I've added the first and only Graven Rite shirt to the store, there's a very limited quantity of these available.
My new band, Eternal Champion, is playing our first show with the hallowed and mighty MANILLA ROAD on June 2nd, check out the flyer below...
What does any of this have to do with Cyclopean? Pretty much nothing, except that I will have a very impressive distribution set up at the Manilla Road gig, stop by and check it out. I will announce the new Cyclopean release schedule soon, I promise.

We've added some new items to the store. ALTAR OF OBLIVION t-shirts and sweatshirts are front print only, exclusive to Cyclopean Records, and limited to a one run press. We reprinted some IRON AGE shirts (only available at last weeks gig) for our friends, there were a few left over, get 'em while you can.
I'm working on getting the next few releases for early 2013 in order, the first two will be cassette tapes, and then hopefully more vinyl.... The first release I can't announce yet, but I can say that it is all new material from an up and coming Texas heavy metal band. Stay tuned for more info in the new year!

ALTAR OF OBLIVION
Altar of Oblivion's new 12" EP, "Salvation", is now available in the store!
18 January 2012
ALTAR OF OBLIVION
Our first release of the new year will be a new 12" EP entitled "Salvation" from the Danish Epic Doom/Heavy Metal band Altar of Oblivion. Their debut full length "Sinews of Anguish - Opus 1 in D Minor" has been on constant rotation since it's release in 2009, and in my opinion, they have become the best band playing this style of music this side of 2000. The vocals of Mik Mentor have gained range and his performance on this EP is stunning. No longer relying on his trademark baritone voice, he has opened up a new sound for the band while retaining the mournful tone that the music calls for. And again, the Melancholic Master, Martin Meyer Mendelssohn Sparvath has created a bleak, powerful, and majestic atmosphere through melodic guitar lines and his signature hard-as-nails riffs. The major change from their debut LP is a more energetic approach to the songs, showcased in the re-recording of "Threshold to Oblivion (My Wrecked Mind) from the bands first release "The Shadow Era Demo", and it has finally got the treatment this catchy song deserves. The "Salvation" EP and the band's forthcoming LP, "A Grand Gesture Of Defiance" will solidify them as an elite in the genre, along side legends Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, and Sorcerer.
