CRB012: Perverts in White Shirts – Power to the Sheeple PREORDER

As announced last September, here is CRB012:


“Power to the Sheeple” brings some experimental diversity to our small label:

when an institution in noise music like Dave Phillips (of the early troublemakers Fear of God and the Schimpfluch Kollektiv) asks you to help release the vinyl of a sideproject, that has been long in the making, well – what do you say?

The album captures songs that were crafted by Nathalie Dreier & Dave Phillips in the past 5 years. As “perverts in white shirts”, they work with various genre elements and create something that could be described as “noise pop”. Jarboe-like voices and hidden references on historical situations crawl through these 8 songs, blend together with chaotic noise and hunt down the peace, that society tries to make us believe.

This record – indeed – is a tough one.

Listen and download the album for free here.


We’ll have the vinyl (white / 180g / 300 copies) available by the end of January 2017, you can preorder it here.

(Yes, the album cover is a tribute)

CRB013: Glorious Home – “Giving”

ghheaderWe are very happy to announce one of our upcoming releases!
There were a lot of things going on with the next three (011/012/013) and somehow 013 made it first, nevermind.

Glorious Home, the band that played together with Death Engine at our first Cruel Bones show some one and a half years ago, has put together those 4 songs of raging, filthy, in-your-face sludge, that bears the harshness of old school black metal and leaves you lying in the dirt.
Together with Meta Matter Records we are proud to release “Giving” as a smokey-grey 12″ coming with a beautiful screenprinted cover done by the band.
This thing is limited to 200 copies and will be released on 30.12.2016.

Trvefrykt Magazin shares a preview & stream of the EP, calling it “a mix of CELTIC FROST and DOPETHRONE” Read the full preview here:

Larkian – Iterations : Alterations – Preorder

…is here!

This stunning new record by Lausanne’s Larkian comes on 2×12″ vinyl with a screenprinted cover artwork and consists of four tracks. The creating process becomes concept here, as the album title implies: Shimmery guitar layers repeat themselves infinitely until completely washed out while subtle variations dominate the structure of those slow crescendos and create a very unique atmosphere – sometimes calmness, sometimes chaos.

We’ll ship all preorders out on the 9th of May. Don’t hesitate to contact us via email (cruelbones at if you want to order but don’t have a paypal account.
