New metal project of Dave Nuss of NNCK (also featuring George Devoe and Arik Moonhawk Roper of Matta Llama) 8-song demo housed in handsome screened jacket. Edition of 100. "UNDER SATANS SUN is a new female-fronted 6-piece metal band out of New York City -- 2 singers who are sisters plus instrumentalists from backgrounds as diverse as NYC itself. The band name is taken from an early 20th century French existential/religious treatise in which an estranged priest meets with the devil Himself in a battle of wits. The outcome: darkness and the void. Thematically, the band actualizes the harsh intersection of the physical and the metaphysical. Religious queries and sexuality intertwine in reverence of the primeval urges of the human flesh, as well as the drive to transcend all such vulgarities in solitary pursuit of the non-corporeal. Musically, the songs are strongly influenced by folk traditions engaging love and the earth, as well as the harsher aspects of urban wasted life characteristic of the band-جø¬-??s milieu. Each song is based on a strong vocal melody and the mangled interpretation of its dissolution into a sea of unbridled passion. The members of Under Satan-جø¬-??s Sun seek to connect with their audience on a fundamental level by communicating about those things to which we can all relate: love and loss, sex and its abuse, and the despair and delectation of being alone."
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
