Hi, our band has a cassette coming out first of august. Thanks for taking the time to look and check us out if it sounds like something that may interest you:


"Hailing from the doomed wastelands of Tennessee, Otis Reaper plays hard rock and punk tinged cro-magnon metal harkening back to the days of yore. Sludgy, neanderthal doom riffs collide with nwobhm tinged melodies, thrashing drums and guttural, blackened vocals w/lyrics about intergalactic time travel, misanthropy, and alcohol."

pre-order here for 5 bucks ppd in the us: http://www.inherentrecords.com/id31.html

typing our band name into google should yield some audio samples of what it sounds like!

Pre-order for a cassette tape? Really?

it's not intended to fund the release or anything, there is just going to be a limited number printed (100 copies) so i guess that is why they are up for pre order. I can see where you're coming from, and as an unknown band from a shithole town in the south that has maybe 10-15 people who like metal i doubt we're gonna sell 100 copies through pre order or anything like that. All the art and layout was finalized this week and the tapes should be shipping by the first of august, so if you don't wanna preorder one there should be plenty left after the label gets them. no worries. hell, if you just feel like downloading it to check it out, delete it or whatever that is cool too. just trying to get the word out in case anyone listens and might be into it. Thanks!

I'll give it a couple of spins - almost like there's something behind these serpentine riffs. Appreciate the unskilled playing!

i found some videos someone uploaded to youtube as well if you wanna check them out before committing the time to download or buy the ep. The tape is only 100 copies but the band has a bunch of copies of the same recording on cd and are working on getting it on vinyl before recording a full length of all new songs. If any distros, zines, blogs, or labels etc. want copies for review or distribution please contact us! Thanks for taking the time to listen and give feedback.

been getting a few orders in so far. we are also in the planning stages of printing the art above on LS shirt. also have some shirts for sale here: http://otisreaper.bigcartel.com/product/darkthrone-rip-off-tee

email us about size/color availability b/c we sold several recently and i am not sure how current the selection on that fancy "webstore" is. The band also has several copies of this recording on pro-printed cd's so contact us if you'd like a copy in that format, especially folks w/zines, blogs, labels, or distros, etc. thanks for the support and for allowing us the time and space to spam our wares.

why not? i know we are probably not many folks' cup of tea around here, but if you happen to be into southern riffs and diamond head/roky erickson/weed/etc. you might dig it.

tapes were delayed at the plant, but test presses of the cassetes/art/packaging etc. were approved and sent off last week so these should be arriving imminently, albeit a bit later than the projected early/mid aug. release.
