And do you know what makes this announcement sweater?! The RIFFLORD "7 Cremation Ground / Meditation" CDs are in stock NOW!! No wait. 

We are psyched to be offering up RIFFLORD's brand new collection of heavy ass tunes on Compact Disc... thus making it very easy to blast RIFFLORD "7 Cremation Ground / Meditation" very loudly in VAN's, Camaros, El Caminos and in most underground Lairs.

"The Otherside" 



SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS is proud as all hell to welcome, VIA VENGEANCE to the family.  
The unrelenting Phoenix AZ based Sludge band known as VIA VENGEANCE was formed in 2006 by Shane Ocell with exploring the concept of being a one-man Sludge band being the ultimate mission... And he has been crushing solo ever since.  
VIA VENGEANCE use no loops and Shane records all his tracks while playing both guitar and drums simultaneously. Combining both a finesse and a reckless audio abandon that must be heard, and felt to truly appreciate.  

“We are excited to have him on the roster. 
Via Vengeance is completely honest. An original. A living breathing piece of art," says Kyle Stratton (SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS) "He is a one-man band, creating an amazing industrial sludge sound, something I have never heard before. I am beyond excited to welcome Shane."   
VIA VENGEANCE has toured the U.S. multiple times and is heading overseas to to tour in Holland and France this December. VIA VENGEANCE have destroyed stages with heavy hitters like Mastodon,Jesu, Big Business, The Bad Brains, Atala and countless others.  
2019 will see VIA VENGEANCE back in the studio recording their SALT OF THE EARTH RECORDS debut with an eye towards Spring/Summer release.  

Asked about VIA VENGEANCE, Scott Harrington (Salt Of The Earth Records) yelled this at me from a roof top... 
“We are constantly looking for new artists that push their boundaries musically and creatively. Knowing how Via Vengeance pummel live crowds with Shane’s uniquely powerful sound and delivery...I can’t wait till sludge fans far and wide get to experience what this is all about.  

Bottom line, VIA VENGEANCE is coming for you. You have been warned. But you still won’t be ready.
