From the archives: first release from fuzzblissed 'gaze duo TWS.
Recorded in Autumn 2005 all manner of splendid sounds go into this synth-driven pop soup; whispered vocals, sequenced drums and guitar feedback. Straddling the line between melodic and harsh TWS are thick and creamy. In a good way.

Yet more fuzzed-out and Melodius cuts from the bleak doomsters.
This contains an actual cover of 'the chain' by Fleetwood Mac................!
A tasty ep with a breezy (for want of a more fitting metal term) feel that finds The Kittens in fine voice and groove.

Specially recorded just for you! This loving memorial to the tower of sound that is an atomck gig was commited to disc during a show in Newport's Mojo Lounge.
No funny business, just classic after classic- all on this zero disc set!
aka "Valentine". Originally released as ltd numbered edition of 20 on heart-shaped CDr.
Dr.Age conjours his mighty frequencies once again- this time around things are dripping with a especially frightening paranoid/claustophobic ambience.
Bizzare washes of synthy drone dilute spastic keyboards and reverberated harsh blasts. It'll make you brick it.
Muscular downer-rock from the Cardiff outsider legends. FE has the meaty sound, rich bassy riffs and doom-laden outlook that SK are known for, but with an added expansiveness and songfull(if not tunefull) quality that the kids will love.

As shrouded in mystery as it isn't in tone, WAC is something of a departure for Cementimnetal, a kind of weird and oddly recorded drone piece.
A very bitter-sounding album, it weighs in at just four monoliths (or should that be QUADroliths) of bass-heavy, sludgey dooom dirge.

Second album proper from the Digi Grinders- betraying more progessive and black metal influences than before.
This was recorded in an actual (well, almost) studio and the songs are somewhat more coherent after Atomck's gigging schedule.
Mix-disk of live atomçk recordings released on a green-sprayed biz card CDR and given away at 'Heavy Doom Fest'.
The first of an ongoing series of noise/drone experiments that extend and distort the Atomck song 'Sneaky Meats'- at this point unreleased- this was recorded at Atomck's rehearsal space and remixed into it's presented from by Linus.
Solo noise album by Dr. Age. One of his first genre 'noise' releases. 10 tracks of distorted, rumbling, cruchy analogue noisescapes. Recorded using borrowed 4-track, circuit-bent devices, field recordings (from Port Eynon, Wales,) delay, distortion, feedback, more distortion.
Hardly-there EP featuring sexy chunks of spazzy grind, with more of a 'live' feel to the material than TMiGE. As of 2009 Atomck still play some of this material at gigs- not that it means it's any good. Recorded in similarly lo-fi conditions.

Legendary sloppy bunk jams from 2003- SC/NF is a highly volatile mix of whatever Dr.Age and cohorts could be coaxed to record! Tracks from this release have been played on BBC radio, to hilarious effect.
