Blackened HC from Northern France. Lille’s Barque were recommended to us by a friend and we were hooked from the start. Until about five years ago this genre of music was commonplace in the western Europe metal scene but it somehow got away as quickly as it rose to prominence… until Barque. Second EP ‘Pyre Builders’ is a gorgeously LOUD and harsh effort. Released with a host of other DIY labels, in true punk fashion.
Red 12″ with black splatter vinyl, or Swamp green eco 12″ vinyl available. We’ve also got our copies of Second Guessing’s fantastic new EP in, on black 12″ vinyl with screenprinted B-side!
Take me to the shop, Scotty

Sometimes you’re extra-extra proud of a release that you’ve been playing a tiny part in. Second Guessing’s new EP is one of those special ones. The Dutch band’s first EP was one of our earlier releases and can still be found on all decent streaming sites. SG went quiet a couple years ago but is now back with a vengance. Without further ado: listen to ‘De Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie’ at Incubate including a little write-up and pre-order the new EP here on vinyl. Screamo fance, rejoice.
