Uncle D Releases
Flying Fortress - Bitchwind
Coming in from the Dirty Rain, Flying Fortress are back with their second full length album, Bitchwind, on Uncle D Records. The release, a departure from the band's DIY roots, is an unflinching testament to their hard work ethic and solid vision captured by friend and studio veteran Jordon Zadorozny (worked with acts including Chris Cornell, Sam Roberts and Don Vail) who co produced and engineered the album at French Kiss Studio, in Pembroke Ontario. The record is a clear, straight ahead mix of pop melody and hardcore intensity, sure to rattle your ears and put a smile on your face.
Released Jan 2018.

Goat Horn - Voyage To Nowhere
The precursor to CAULDRON, the genre-defining, critically-lauded GOAT HORN return with their Canadian cult classic debut VOYAGE TO NOWHERE for the first time on vinyl! Known for its honest and sincere reverence as the descendants of VENOM, CATHEDRAL, BLACK SABBATH, RAVEN & CELTIC FROST, this record reeks of a beer stained area rug with scattered BANZAI LP's on the jam space floor in a moldy cinder block basement. A loose n greasy alcoholic assault!
Released October 2015.
