i. + The brand new split CD between veteran electronic dynamo and glitchnoise god Exclipsect and belgian breakcore madman Kaebin Yield is now available for preorder! Limited to just 200 copies and enclosed in a metal case with insert and sticker, this CD is a teaser for the full length Exclipsect CD 'Phantom Optics' [due out by the end of the year] and the debut Duncan Avoid album 'Metaphysics' due out this summer [Nico from Kaebin Yield is one half of Duncan Avoid].
This excellent CD brings together 7 tracks by each artist. Exclipsect moves in a new direction hinted at with the very limited and nearly unattainable 'Kinetic' EP, neatly folding together elements of dark and distorted breakbeat with IDM, heavy industrial, and trancey anthems. Kaebin Yield is one of dark electronic music's hidden treasures, and Nico de Gols' immense talent for engineering complex and violent breakcore and digital noise assemblages is eerily well developed. You can preview MP3s from the album on the Hive Records website.
Preorder now, because this release will sell out very quickly. Distributors interested in reserving copies can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

ii. + Censor's debut album 'Empire Holds Down' is shipping now! Response so far has been tremendous, and we thank everyone who waited patiently to recieve their copies. While plagued by numerous delays, this album is well worth the wait, and we are very happy with the finished product. The limited edition with the bonus Censor / Retnah 3" is sold out, but we still have plenty of copies of the album for sale. Response to the live set at the Needle Sharing / Larvae show last weekend in NYC was very positive. Keep your eyes on the hive site for a streaming video of Censor's performance soon.
