We have decided to try out a new model for our digital catalogue and are now offering almost all of our releases as pay-what-you-want via our Bandcamp page.
Download sales across the entire music industry are significantly dropping rapidly as streaming continues to increase. Something we've always tried to do at Gizeh is stay on top of an ever-changing musical landscape and the trends that follow thereafter, whilst being aware that industry movement doesn't have to mean the same at our small and independent level. That helps us and it helps our artists. It's clear that there is another shift happening with downloading at the moment and it's one that has prompted this trial. We plan on testing this model out for a month to see if it works and we'll take stock at the end of that period. The most recent releases and a select few from the back catalogue will remain at a fixed price for now.
We're always interested in what the people who support the label have to say so if you have a particular opinion on this subject please feel free to get in touch.
Thanks for listening.
We are thrilled to announce that Hundred Year Old Man's debut album 'Breaching' will be released on April 27th. The record will be available on limited edition double vinyl (in conjunction with Wolves & Vibrancy Records), CD and download and pre-orders are now open.
Listen to the first cut from the album; Disconnect, via our friends at Echoes & Dust.
Breaching is the debut album from Leeds-based, 6-piece, post-metallers Hundred Year Old Man.
Hot on the heels of recent EP Rei, Breaching emits the same heaving intensity and unforgiving, wall of sound approach. Dense and billowing riffs are intertwined with field recordings and spoken word passages to form an unyielding, sprawling piece of work that delivers the bands artistic vision perfectly. The more ambient, drone sections of the record compliment and allow the real songs to take flight. Debut single Black Fire is reworked to give the track a new lease of life, whilst the other heavy hitters here; The Forest, Long Wall, Disconnect and Ascension are a continuation of the excellent work found on the Rei EP.
Breaching contains masses of atmosphere and is a ferocious and immersive listening experience. An epic, monolithic voyage full of texture, depth, aggression and emotion. This is an album that should be approached as a whole, with patience and attention. The rewards will deliver a unique, crushing and quite simply superb record.
