LAYR "Hidden Realm" Lost Grave #13.02 available now!

LAYR "Hidden Realm" Lost Grave #13.02 available now!

LAYR’s first full length “Hidden Realm” treads forward on the dark paths carved on the split releases with Necroparthenophagy and Night. The drums of war echo throughout “Hidden Realms” but there is no praise of heroes or celebration of victory here. The bleak horrors of war, the dread and the doom that follows it, the false promises of those who lead, all creep like shadows through sheets of metallic guitars, black ambience, and tortured screams. 10 songs on the album proper, plus 2 bonus demo tracks. (features Timothy from Stone Breath / Albatwitch on one track)
A limited edition of 50. Special black-on-black handmade covers with printed insert.

1. Procession of the High Council
2. Battle Throne
3. Harem Chamber
4. Hollow Be Thy Name
5. Omens
6. Serpentine Master
7. Immured
8. Towering Shadow
9. Behind the Mask

Dispossessed review

The first release on Lost Grave, The Best of the Dispossessed (#13.01) just got a review over at the Big Takeover. Check it out.

Saturday, August 10, 2013


Lost Grave's second release is available NOW!

GROSS EX MACHINA's "Ruiner" ep

Lancaster Pennsylvanias GROSS EX MACHINA have meticulously crafted elements of grindcore, jazz, prog, post hardcore, and experimental electronic music to create a truly unique, avant-metal debut, RUINER.

This monster EP seamlessly transitions between a psychotic vortex of carnal aggression, beautifully layered guitar-scapes, sci-fi carnival music, and a deep lumbering wall of distortion. These elements alone have made way for G.E.M to blaze their own path through the mire of predictable metal and hardcore trends, while concurrently ruining preconcieved notions of what "heavy" music is all about.

For fans of MELT BANANA, JOHN ZORN and later era OLD LADY DRIVERS!!!

track Listing:
1. Confession Part 1
2. Two Legs or Four
3. The Ninth Son and The Hunters Moon
4. Epocalypse

our first release The Best of THE DISPOSSESSED CDr Lost Grave #13.01 available now!

Connecticut’s proto-goth / post-punk  pioneers, The Dispossessed, had an amazingly productive albeit far-too-short career. The Dispossessed combined 60’s garage rock sounds with a guitar-driven take on post-punk/modern rock into songs that managed to be dark, catchy, sardonic, and sparkling at once. 

In their short time together, they released a 7” ep, and an LP. The Best of The Dispossessed presents 14 of their songs, including 2 from a 2003 reunion. This is a limited edition release - 100 copies only. Hand-printed arigato-pak covers (silkscreen black/silver) with insert.

track listing:

1• Kingdom Kingdom
2• Street of Kisses
3• Cornered Smile
4• Sister Mary
5• Fall Back in TIme
6• SEvered Head
7• Half Life
8• Lolita
9• Moon and Midnight
10• Phoenix Park
11• The World
12• The Thin Men
13• Blue
14• Waiting for the Sun

Update / submissions

As we have had time to work on ideas for Lost Grave, things are developing - we're getting closer to our first releases and we have a clearer idea of what form the label is taking.

As we mentioned before, one series of releases we are working on is getting bands that usually don't work acoustically to do acoustic records - we have a few of these in the works, but not as many as we would have liked... we are working on some other releases as well...

• Some reissues and rescued recordings from bands/music that we loved.

• We are also working on bringing you new releases by current artists.

Our vision for each release is:

• Limited edition - 50-100 copies if CDr or cassette... fewer if lathe cut, more if vinyl.

• Hand-printed covers (stamped/silkscreened or some combination thereof)

• Each release will come with a patch and/or t-shirt option

We now have patches with the label logo (silver ink silkscreened on black canvas) ...contact us if interested ... timeMOTHeye(at)gmail.com

we are looking for artists! DOOM, crust, post-punk, experimental, blackened drone, etc. 
If you want to do limited edition physical releases with cool art...get in touch. 

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Lost Grave is a joint venture between Eleventh Key and Hand/Eye records. Our main interest is in making limited edition physical releases: obscure formats, nice packaging, nice artwork, etc.

Our first set of releases will be a series of acoustic recordings - the definition of "acoustic" being left up to the artist. Some of the bands we asked are known for doing acoustic music, but many of them are not ... we will expand our releases beyond this series in the future.

Lost Grave releases will be available from Eleventh Key, Hand/Eye, and select mail-order services.

Stay tuned to this page for further information.
