Pre-Order the new album 'Ausdauer' from the Dutch Progressive Heavy Psych band BISMUT

Progressive Heavy Psych: For Fans Of: Rotor / Karma to Burn / Mastodon / Kanaan / Electric Moon / Slift.

'Ausdauer' is limited to 500cps heavy weight vinyl divided in 300x black | 200x yellow

Hailing from the city of Nijmegen in the Netherlands, BISMUT is a dynamic heavy psych trio that has been carving their unique path since forming in 2016. Drawing influences from an eclectic blend of genres including progressive rock, doom, metal, stoner, heavy psych, and classic hard rock, their music is an intense and mesmerizing fusion that transcends traditional boundaries. Their distinctive sound has earned them a dedicated fanbase, and their performances on stages across Europe have solidified their reputation as a force to be reckoned with.

New album Ausdauer marks the triumphant return of the band, following the success of their sold-out (on vinyl) previous releases, Schwerpunkt in 2018, and Retrocausality in 2020, released via Lay Bare Recordings. This album promises to be a sonic journey that delves even deeper into the band's diverse influences while pushing their sound to new heights. From thunderous, doom-laden riffs to mind-bending psychedelic explorations, the album seamlessly weaves together a tapestry of textures that will resonate with long-time fans and newcomers alike.

Ausdauer is a joint effort between the band's current Dutch label Lay Bare Recordings and the Spanish label Spinda Records. This collaboration brings together a diverse range of expertise, amplifying the album's potential for international recognition and success. The partnership aims to introduce the band's electrifying sound to a wider global audience, leveraging the strengths of both labels in their respective regions.

Ghorot is a blackened doom-metal trio formed in Boise, ID in 2019 by Carson Russell (Ealdor Bealu), Brandon Walker(ex-Ghost Tours), and Chad Remains (ex-Uzala). The band's first full-length album Loss of Light was released in 2021 on Transylvanian Recordings(Oakland, CA) and Inverse Records(Jyväskylä, Finland), and received massive international acclaim.


WOUND, the highly-anticipated sophomore full-length album from Ghorot, is slated to be released in October 2023 on Lay Bare Recordings(Nijmegen, Netherlands) and King of the Monsters(Phoenix, AZ). The album is a brutal step further into the nightmarish realm of Ghorot, recorded, mixed, and mastered by legendary engineer and drummer Andy Patterson(Subrosa, Ascend, The Otolith). Over the past 3 years, Ghorot has shared the stage with world-class bands including YOB, Monolord, Exhumed, Khemmis, Witch Mountain, Eagle Twin, and many more. With 2 headlining Western US tours in 2021 and 2022, and multiple festival appearances at Treefort Music Fest(’21-’22) and Crucial Fest(’21-’22), Ghorot are ready to set out on a path of destruction to crush skulls across the globe with their arsenal of sludged out, blackened, and defiled Ghorot n' Roll blasphemies!!
