NEW ALBUM FRAYLE 'Skin & Sorrow' in Pre-order 4th of april

Frayle “Skin & Sorrow” in PRE-ORDER 4th of April (European version)

~Releasedate July 8th

"Skin & Sorrow" EU version: Aside/ Bside Sea Blue/ Oxblood Red 12" (180g) in a gatefold pocket!

For USA versions go to:


The latest release from Cleveland’s ritual metal duo Frayle, “Skin and Sorrow” plays like a demonic insurrection; exhuming anger and sadness and channeling the energy of dead pasts through imposing guitar crunch and soul-stirring vocals.

Frayle is Gwyn Strang and Sean Bilovecky (formerly of Disengage), together who form an artistic nest of reprieve for when so many unwanted layers have been sloughed off, we are raw and worn. Yet we don’t want a cure. We want to feel the burn and freeze of reality against our skin, against our beings. From this place of embodying our senses, of tearing away the mask that covers our sacred vulnerabilities, we are able to actually begin to understand our experience and nurture it, forming a cocoon from which we can emerge indestructible.

“Skin and Sorrow”- FRIDAY JULY 8TH on Aqualamb Records & Lay Bare Recordings, is that invitation to the liminal cocoon: where we receive knowledge and occasional sparks of creation through our rest into discomfort.

Gwyn’s whispering embodiment of Lilith, the archetype of sacred female knowledge exiled time and time again, with reflective and expressive lyrics throughout the album is an opportunity to connect with the deepest and most enigmatic parts of our subconscious, the collective therein, where are all beings are just trying to get through.

The album is devastating. It’s full of heartbreak and pain. While Gwyn’s otherworldly vocals slightly ease the sting and curiously court the demon that is emerging, the themes of loss and grief grab the listener’s heart with a full force like a hand emerging from a freshly dug grave, grasping to whatever life might be there. 

In Fall 2021, on their European “End of Isolation” tour, Gwyn and Sean were able to connect again to their love for being on the road. While the threat of Covid-19 restrictions was of constant worry, being able to be back with their fans and resonating with people across the world, was inspiring and heading out on the road again this spring is like a light at the end of the tunnel of this third winter of no applause.

Gwyn and Sean write and record everything from the third floor of their Cleveland home, on the edge of town, surrounded by ancient lakes and woods that echo the howls of coyotes. Their location allows a connection to the constant turnover of the natural world, the death that is pregnant with the new. Their settled nature in their home studio, means that there is always a container for the inspiration that comes looking for an incubator through for the music.

The album is heavy. Gwyn’s breathy vocals intertwine with the thorns of punishing riffs, allowing for an uncommon movement and flow. Songs like “All the Things I Was” and “Perfect Wound” lean on Gwyn’s deepest teacher and her greatest empowerment: Learning from difficult situations and moving on.

There’s a sensuality here, like pomegranates in the Underworld, where there is always a trickle of light from the garden above.

“Skin & Sorrow” is Frayle’s 2nd full-length album and it indeed feels like something very big is coming into being. This album is certain to make them a well-known name on the doom circuit. Fortunately the garden that they are creating from is so ripe with composted selves and outgrown ways of being that we can just expect more and more, deeper and more aligned, from this thrilling band.

- MeganFrye


“Skin and Sorrow”-  will be released on FRIDAY JULY 8TH on Aqualamb Records & Lay Bare Recordings

PRE-ORDER IS OPEN! ”Riff worship at it it's finest, groove and gain is the way of forward momentum.” MODDER s/t

Debut album ‘MODDER’ forthcoming on Lay Bare Recordings & Consouling Sounds on 12” coloured vinyl is a mission statement of what Modder is all about;


Riffs designed to make your neck break, supported by thundering basslines and grooving drums. Surrounded by industrialistic samples and synths to forge an unique sound in the sludge landscape Modder finds themselves in.

Modder started out as a passion project between guitarist, songwriter & producer Mathlovsky and his long time companion Gregory Simons on drums. After recording and releasing their massive first single ‘Mudslinger’ (November 2020) wich is an impressive 21 minute long riff fest, combining influences ranging from Sleep to Meshuggah, bass player Maurice van der Es joined the duo to expand the sonic mayhem.

The self-titled album, wich was recorded even before ‘Mudslinger’ in spring of 2020, gained its extra low end as a result. Recruiting Maxime Rouquart from Greg’s band, Modder found their second guitarist for that extra layer of distortion. Simon Felix was approached to perform the programmed bass synths & industrial samples live and the band was fully formed, directly heading into the rehearsal space to become the tight outfit they have quickly become.

Lay Bare Recordings gave the band a home to release the ‘Modder’ 12” on after some back and forth talks, feeling familiar with eachother, the plans to go forward were quickly formed. After performing their first live show, in the dungeons of a Belgian Castle, Consouling Sounds was impressed enough to offer their support to do a co-release between the legendary labels.


With their first 12” album coming as soon as December 03, 2021, Modder has one goal in mind and that is to obliterate every stage as they will take their riff worship to every sound level possible.

I am honored to announce a first official collaboration with the epic Belgian label, Consouling Sounds. We’ll co-release the power sludge band MODDER’s self-titled debut album at the end of this year! Lay Bare was already in the process of releasing MODDER but thanks to the pandemic we got to know each other better and deemed it a good idea to join forces in order to sling MODDER the furthest we possibly can! For those who are not familiar with Consouling Sounds, definitely check out their impressive roster, they are the home of many other grand acts like Amenra, Pothamus & Alkerdeel!

Nothing better, than starting the day with ear blasting Fuzz Thrash tunes and a color feast for the eyes. 

Here we have King Gizzard on their rawest!

A Live version of their well received "Infest The Rats' Nest" album. All tracks are recorded on their tour around the world in the UK, Belgium, Australia, USA, and France.

King Gizz made 5 live albums available to release for anyone who might be interested in doing this. We took this invite as an opportunity and wanted to do something creative and special. So we chose the best parts from these 5 album sleeve-designs and assembled it to a burst of colours on the cover and inner bag. Further we compiled the "Infest The Rats' Nest" live tracks to one magnificent and dynamic album. The THRASH DEMO version “Automation" was added as a bonus on top! King Gizz’s song-themes deal with climate change impacts, destruction of the environment and human resettlement to other planets.
