We made it! We are 5 years old !
5 years ago we released Keiki's second album with a beautiful ass on the cover. iTunes even refused to publish the cover as it because of that! To celebrate this anniversary, you'll be able order this album for 5 euros from now !
But that's not the main news.
We've been struggling for months to release three new albums. We got many issues whose reasons were way beyond our control, one of them being huge pressing plant delays. At the root of this was this stupid marketing fair that has now become the Record Store Day. We won't go into details regarding the problems with RSD in this post. If you are curious, you can read these excellent articles on the subject:

- Vinyl Won't Really Make a Comeback Until We Have More Record Presses
Consequently we had to postpone these releases several times in a row. So much that we even stopped to try announcing release dates!
The funny thing is that all this shit happened to us while we were trying to manufacture our first truly satanic release : All About Satan from (r). Luckily we aren't superstitious. We didn't have decoded this as a sign meaning that it was really bad to run a label called Cheap Satanism Records.
Anyway the story behind All About Satan is too nice not to produce it. Two years ago the excellent Italian band Larsen played at Café Central to present its album with Little Annie. The band stayed at our place after the gig and Fabrizio Palumbo, one of the Larsen's founding member, noticed the name of our label. He then told us that he was planning to record a concept album around Satan and that it would make sense for us to release it. About one year later, Fabrizio sent us the recording. Honestly we had totally forgotten his proposal when we received his mail. We nevertheless listened to it, enjoyed and painfully press it as a beautiful pink vinyl!
We don't have a similar story to tell about the Blind Thorns' debut album and Agatha's second album as a duo but we are really glad to be one of their co-producers. When we received the Blind Thorns' demo, it was a blast from our first listen. So we couldn't refuse to be part of this adventure. Concerning Agatha, we aleady are big fans of Goatness, its previous effort. It was thus a pleasure for us to be able to put our logo on the new LP of the band.
These three incredible albums are now available of order.
