To make all this beauty.. It takes time..

One year ago.. I Let “The White Witch” In.. 

I got hooked on Gwyn Strang hauntingly mesmerising voice. Frayle is DOOM like a journey of foreboding heaviness and gloomy despair. 

Now a year later after releasing this EP, we are working on a limited 7” custom “alchemy box” and an LP. To make all this beauty, it takes time and must not, under any circumstances, be rushed. 

So there is a little delay on the 7” box with we’ll update soon on the pre-orders. We are sorry but we assure you its worth to wait!

ANOTHER GEM SOLD OUT; BISMUT - SCHWERPUNKT

Another great record from Lay Bare's roster is SOLD OUT!

We are talking about: Bismut - Schwerpunkt. The heavy psychedelic rock jam album from three piece Bismut became very good reviews. Also their live club tours got positive response. And since their very powerful performance at Sonic Whip festival (May 4th) the popularity for the album got big. So big that the album is SOLD OUT at Lay Bare's end. If you want to lay your hands on it, visit one of their live gigs or jump over to the band's website: https://bismut.band

AVAILABLE VIA LAY BARE RECORDINGS

Respected hard rock band Lo-Pan's new LP, 'Subtle', via Aqualamb Records. US IMPORT

The Ohio group, known for its dichotomic sound which merges sturm und drang heaviness with relentlessly catchy, AOR laden melody, recorded the new album at both NYC's Reservoir and The Union studios with Grammy Award winning producer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Ghost, NIN). Lo-Pan's fourth record, 'Subtle' was mastered by famed engineer Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Guns 'N' Roses, Mastodon) and is the highly anticipated follow-up to the unit's 2017 release, 'In Tensions', a record hailed as "rock more akin for a day at the beach than a nightmarish, post-apocalyptic dungeon lair" (Last Rites).

FRAYLE 7IN ALCHEMY BOX: DEAD INSIDE DUE GOOD FRIDAY APRIL 19th on joint release form AQUALAMB AND LAY BARE LABELS

USA LINK TO PREORDER THE SPECIAL 7IN BOX HERE:

https://frayle.bandcamp.com/album/dead-inside

Whether we consciously realize this or not, to understand the creation of music is to understand alchemy—specifically the transformation of the world’s mundane dross into something approaching the sublime. Doom metalists Frayle understand this better than most—witchcraft and alchemy are key to their creativity.

Frayle’s core duo of Gwyn Strang and Sean Bilovecky met in 2015, when both were clothing designers. They became a couple in 2017, and after Strang gave Bilovecky recording software for Christmas, they began making music together in early 2018. Bilovecky had previously spent several quality years in Man’s Ruin Records’ should-have-been-famous heavy groovemongers Disengage, and now crafts the hypnotic riffs and drones over which Strang sings in a gorgeously eerie, spectral croon that all once recalls the breathy atmospherics of Rachel Goswell (Slowdive) and the babydoll voicings of Alison Shaw (Cranes). The duality of The Great Horned God of Bilovecky’s bludgeoning, primal riffing and The Divine Feminine of Strang’s exquisite, almost intangible singing creates friction, resolution, and transcendence. 

In their first year of existence, they released the EP “The White Witch” and the digital single “Witches.” Both sound like the output of a far more mature band, and if you’ve detected a theme, that’s quite intentional—on their website, the band describe themselves as “Heavy Witch Doom.” Strang’s lyrics, though they can often touch on themes of heartbreak and anger, are greatly informed by her spirituality and interest in alchemy, and their next release, “Dead Inside” b/w “Godless” reflects those interests not just lyrically, but in its elaborate presentation. The 7”, jointly released by the Aqualamb and Lay Bare labels, comes housed within a custom “alchemy box” containing a signature Aqualamb 100 page printed art book created for the release as well as a collection of other spell kit ingredients formulated specifically by Strang, the band’s own white witch. 

“Dead Inside”/“Godless” was recorded and mixed by Sean Bilovecky and mastered by Carl Saff (Big Business, Fu Manchu, Unsane), and will be released by Aqualamb/Lay Bare on Good Friday, April 19th.
