May 1st Bandcamp Day

As most of you know Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share fee today to directly help labels/artists with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We’ve decided to make it as special as possible and announce two beautiful, intense and magical new albums:
J.H. GurajIntrospection / Migration‘ LP
He’s back and finally on vinyl. Six years in the making, wow does it deliver.
Luke MawdsleyVulgar Displays Of Affection‘ CS
Deep deep debut voyage!

We also have the white FERAStupidamutaforma‘ tape repress in with a special limited ‘Santino’ designed by the artist.

And last but not least, one of our fav illustrators Michelangelo Setola (from Canicola edizioni) has designed a heavy two sided new MD T-Shirt.

We will posting about everything in detail in the next coming days.
Thanks xo

Hallelujah! & Fera are out


  • Hallelujah! – Wanna Dance (MDR034)
Scratch ‘n’ sniff post-punk unafraid to skidmark deep into the red…incendiary.‘  Raymond Cummings / The Wire, Feb. 2020 issue.

  • FeraStupidamutaforma (MDR034)

“The songs on Stupidamutaforma feel hypnotizing…it establishes De Franco as a composer who uses space and time to create a set of rich, immersive works.” Bandcamp ‘Album Of The Day

Canicola 15 X 5 Maple Death was good…

Canicola 15 X Maple Death 5

Never big on celebrating but five years have gone by and we’re throwing this little event you see above with our fav editors/comic buddies Canicola. Details over here folks. See you on November 29th.


WOW’s Come La Notte is out!

WOW’s ‘Come La Notte‘ is out today on Maple Death Records and My Own Private Records.


‘WOW erase the constraints of time and geographical borders’Aquarium Drunkard

‘If Low was a pair of Italian bohemians who always wore sunglasses indoors and grew up on a so-square-it’s-cool catalog of library music, it might sound something like the oh-so-chic garage-pop duo WOW. “Nina” is a stargazing lullaby, complete with an outro that takes your dreams to outer-space.’NPR

‘Occhi Di Serpente” (“Snake Eyes”), a mysterious cocktail that sounds dangerous and alluring all at once, set to a slinky, bongo-fueled groove. The harmonies are divine. Dive in but watch your back.’Brooklyn Vegan 

Metro Crowd’s ‘Planning:’ is out

We’re back with our first proper release of 2019, and yes we are back in ROMA, la capitale, for Metro Crowd‘s ‘Planning:‘.
This is one of the most alien records we have ever released, this band really travels at their own speed. People have thrown in Chrome, Brainiac, Cabaret Voltaire… I think it’s just the product of that still fertile Roma-Est underground.
Metro Crowd’s members come from Mai Mai Mai, our own Holiday Inn, Sect Mark, Trouble Vs Glue, Fanfulla, No=Fi Recordings etc., they definitely have an outsider vision of whatever the Italian Occult Psych scene was all about a few years ago.

Become a believer now. Full story and infos below.

” Undeniably a genre-bender, their sound runs the gamut of discordance with the pounding delayed-out percussion of Godflesh, the seriously angular and atonal guitar styling of Big Black, and the condescending haughtiness of White House vocals. ” Cvlt Nation
