Amputape releases as of 12/27/2010

#1- Thee Letting Forth of Fire/Behold "live split cassete" limited to 88 (OOP) 
TLFOF- 23 minutes of atmospheric doom
Behold- Spokane kids slam the hardcore hammer down
#2- Amputape Portland Compilation Limited to 300 (a few copies left)
Roughly 42 minutes of some of thee finest Grind/Crust/D-Beat/Witchery from PDX
Tracks fom Transient, Honduran, Murderess, Squalora, Abandon, Raw Nerves, Sei Hexe, and Machine Gun Congress.

#3-AAPOAA "We Are Everywhere E.P." Limited to 60 (Still Available)
Sadly this band is on hiatus at the moment. Combine Kylesa, The Wipers, and Portland in general and you get the idea. Six songs about tearing shit apart and dealing with the remains. Dig it.
#4- ELITIST "First Recordings 2008" Tour Only Edition of 50 on translucent blue cassettes (OOP)
ELITIST is the aural equivelant of being beaten with a metal trash can. Completely relentless metal/grind that barrels over you before you realize what the fuck just happened.
#5-ELITIST "Hotel E.P." Tour Only Edition of 50 on translucent blue cassettes (OOP)
Total destruction from these PDX killers. These recordings are not available anywhere else, at least not these versions. Extremely evil/dark blasts of hate and disgust. If you get the chance to see them do not miss it!

#6- Murderess "The last Thing You Will Ever See..." Limited to 100 with Full color covers (vinyl on Aborted Society Records) A few copies still available.
Absolutely crucial MetalCrust from these ladies and gent. Fenriz (Darkthrone) picked this album for his top ten of 2010 so I will let him tell you why: "Former BAND OF THE WEEK because of an astonishing demo, these Portland maniacs head onwards with their VERY organic sound, reminding the listener of BURZUM/DARKTHRONE gone crust at first. Then later all the details reveal themselves, and you find more and more substance. Songs like SINKING FURTHER and VICTIMIZED are already classics in my book and give me goosebumps every time I hear them.
So many try to copy Vargs vocals, but it is when it happens unintentionally that it is interesting for me. Vocals have a touch of KORGULL THE EXTERMINATOR as well, very very raw. Drumming is excellent, the riffs are truly epicly crafted and the execution of it all is like HIS HERO IS GONE fused with the 3 first VOIVOD albums. But i am not a reviewer, I am a listener and an ENJOYER, so this is all i wanna say for now. This beautiful vinyl version (cleverly and tastefully coloured vinyl) will most likely become a collectors item, so run and buy it at first sight.
THANK YOU Rachel and Amanda and Eben for making this music happen!"
