(Updated: 2/2/16)
With heavy hearts we continue to march into the hellscape that is this current world. We must continue on, and we are finally getting things rolling on the production side of things after the fire. First off....
BONUS BEAST "Mental Decay" LP is out now and shipping, our 75th release. Beautifully crafted 40 minutes of blown out acid/ noise/industrialized rhythms, mastered by Jake Rodriguez and artwork by Adrian Saenz. Edition of 250 on Black Vinyl.


"Amiable agent of pure chaos, Ryan King, moves like an animated line drawing, a high voltage wireframe that arcs easily and often, tazing or enlightening those around him. Musical instruments were invented for characters like this. King will hover towards a table of circuits the way a big bug gravitates to smaller bugs, their mere presence amplifying whatever freak plasma surges through his limbs. Once he sets to work, shedding his chrysalis to reveal wet shuddering wings, the whole living world offers itself up to loving devourment. Present yourself, when Bonus Beast appears live at Second Act ahead of his forthcoming LP release "Mental Decay".

The newest batch of tapes is still available but going quickly : SLANTED SQUARE "Three Sides", MAYA SONGBIRD "Welcome To The Darkside" , TYLER HOLMES "Invisible Island" and LOACHFILLET. Goto the Releases page above to order!
Were down to the last few copies of STYROFOAM SANCHEZ "Empire Underwater" LP , BLACK SPIRITUALS "Black Interiors" cassette and LAS SUCIAS "Salte Del Medio", order quick if interested.


(Updated: 1/1/16)
IWe have been dreading this update for a while bit it comes with teary eyes and a heavy heart that we announce that RATSKIN RECORDS co-founder as well as the co founder of CORAL REMAINS, STYROFOAM SANCHEZ, NERFBAU and a visionary visual artist and all around mind revolutionary Jason Adrian McCarty passed on December 2, 2016 in the Oakland Ghostship Tragedy, along with many other members of the RATSKIN RECORDS immediate family as well as many beautiful peers and fellow musicians and artists. Our hearts are heavy with grief, sorrow and horror but we will continue the label in their honor, fighting even harder against the mountains of injustices and wrong in this toxic ass world, and we hope you all will continue to stand with us in their honor.

. First up,

RSR031: SKINGRAFT "Ill Will" c32 &
first up "ILL WILL" from Cleveland, OH harsh master SKIN GRAFT. "ILL WILL" is just that - a dark, spiraling hole of the cathedral of memory that will never come to reality - what is your intention ? dark nauseous spirals of decaying consciousness blast the rear quadran of the brain in the form of crushing blasts - climbing feedback mountains of shredded speaker memory- pulsing machines - scraping , screeching at the shockra down the spine and through the shattered ankles of a dream- you are being haunted ad manipulated--- This album keeps the appearances of your own corpse strobing in front of your very own bloodied eyeballs- viscrally in tact at times minimal- but never without intent - ILL WILL brings the listener down a deep dark churning path of self Doubt into the breakdown and maiming of constructed sonic reality ----- good luck ????? Limited to 77. Chrome hi bias tapes - artwork by Patrick "VOKE" Jacobson & MD3
SKIN GRAFT "Ill Will" mp3 sample


RSR032: SKULLCASTER "Cognitive Infiltration" c32.


Next up a real busted brain wave manipulation samurai of time from SKULLCASTER Distortions and severed ears- top notch frontal lobe surgeries are brought forth - tools even after cut chord ---- Emitting sound and air, the earlobe loops back to the hollow resonant skull. Austin, TX brings the demented doctoral narrative of SKULLCASTER. Through custom noise-synth patterns, preps the surgical devices not known in the industry for aural nerve surgery. Shorted radio waves burn with the ashes of battery acid splashing in through your pores to scratch test the importance of your molecules. Crude synths, tape manipulations, squawks of hammering bone - resonate to walls Of ripping noise. Distant sputtering mechanical Distorted rhythms crawling from a grave- the rogue surgery echo is pumped into the frontal lobe / all hooked in for Mind control. Occult brainwave manipulation- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED MIND CONTROL ALBUM for a process of self mutilation.- ear fetish device experiments and fine machine tunings- Limited to 77. Chrome hi bias tapes

Edition of 140 hi bias chrome cassettes, with a mini zine, sealed in recycled tape by Crank himself.
AUDIO SAMPLE: LastingWhipexcerpt.mp3


Also out now a 42 minute cassette from NERFBAU, titled, "Dr. Meniere's Sideshow".

Recorded in early 2009, but still fresh. An edition of 111 on chrome hi bias tapes with transparent cover art of the band sixty years into the future.

,
Still Fresh//////

.... Oakland's BONUS BEAST titled, "Just Because You're Paranoid, Doesen't Mean There Not Out To Get You"
No, but in this case, if you own this tape, he's guaranteed to track you down , and extrapilate your consciousness via bone drill bullseyes. This album presents a dense, meticulously crafted psychoatropic landscape of bulging
eyeballs which see only the bleakest snakes of history, chattering teeth which will gnaw at your spine, and ears that leak brain grey radiation into your desk, amplified through the skillful destruction of magnetic tape, brainwave oscillation studies, and readymade sonic tragedies. There's no point to fight it, just jack in and achieve enlightment, because its more peaceful when you don't have to think, and can just fucking listen.
Vertigo/insanity pretty much guaranteed if listened to with headphones/proper stereo field. Comes with real XRay of the artist's teeth...grosss....Ltd to 120 chrome cassettes.
AUDIO SAMPLE: Terminally Yours.mp3
$6 ppd in US. $7 ppd World.




and also SALSA PILE's "Memory Apprehension Goggles" c60
Fifty seven minutes stuck in a liquified conspiracy blender, gassily crafted by members of Soup Purse, Bonus Beast, Nerfbau (both), and Crisperion Fett.Side A offers up just over twenty eight minutes of a push and pull harder landscape of gelatin microbials, skillfully shifted through a master mixer that fell into the stew for extra dynamic benefit.One sound triggers another which triggers twelve more and then back down to silence, or so you think, Endless display of contextualizing seemingly unrelated sounds into a well oiled salsa machine, Some super dense sonic landscape is layed forth on Side A, where Side B , will decimate your orientation...as it slowly and curdily wraps itself around your ears and ankles and slowly pulls you into the veggie gutter of slime where you belong. This epic mess was improvised on gov't land in San Diego, CA at the beginning of 2010 @ la Casa de Soup. Uncannily dynamic for a buncha big-man bruisers. Ltd to 130 on blood red chrome cassettes.
