Elizabeth "Insomnia"

THRT038 / December 15, 2013

7"EP / DIGITAL

Switzerland's very own ELIZABETH return with new EP "Insomnia"; four new tracks of hardcore/crust/whatever showing their ability to write neck-breaking hymns and intended to be played at full volume. An intense barrage of manic drumming, chainsaw-tone guitars, and these trademark raspy screams that come from nowhere : on this EP the band goes one step further into heaviness without sacrificing dynamics. After the recent release of an LP documenting all their previous body of work, "Insomnia" is a brutal foretaste of all things to come for ELIZABETH.

  • Recorded and mixed by Raphaël Bovey at MyRoom Studio, Lausanne, Switzerland
  • Additional engineering by Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studio, Salem, USA
  • Mastered by Magnus Lindberg at The Vilhelm Room, Stockholm, Sweden

    Elizabeth "Where Vultures Land - Deluxe Edition"

    THRT035 / June 20, 2013

    LP / DIGITAL

    Formed in 2009 in Geneva, Switzerland, ELIZABETH has quickly built a reputation with their retentless brand of hardcore/crust and energetic live shows that brought them from La Havane to St Petersburg. This LP combines all their existing material on the same record : a repress of the 2012 "Where Vultures Land" 12"EP and for the first time on vinyl their 2010 demo - five tracks that show a band that has been impressing since day one. All packaged in a deluxe jacket and with a brand new cover art.

    • Recorded, mixed and mastered by Serge Spiga at The Clockwork, Granges, Switzerland (tracks 01-08) & Elizabeth (tracks 09-13)
    • Logotype by Førtifem

      Elizabeth "Where Vultures Land"

      THRT018 / March 3, 2012

      12"EP / DIGITAL

      "Get in the van" as a leitmotiv; ELIZABETH is one of those bands that have understood that the strongest reputations could be only built on the road. Thus, this last year, their home-recorded demo has been enough to let them travel through the whole Europe and shared nearly forty stages with the upper crust of european hardcore/punk. With "Where Vultures Land", their debut EP, these swiss carve their way into the heaviest and most intense branch of their scene, alongside of bands such as Converge, Rise And Fall or The Hope Conspiracy. Twenty minutes played with a constant energy, which is demultiplied by the unmerciful rusted vocals of Javier (with an heavy burden in the matter as an ex-Nostromo). More than enough to one of the most promising bands of the european scene, now you’re warned.
