Sorry for the late reply.
It is a CD-r in the shape of a small vinyl LP. Like THIS for example.

XP010 - BATRAKOS / AISNA split is out now.

You can listen to the split and buy a digital and physical copy HERE

Split between two household Xenoglossy Productions projects.

Batrakos is noise/raw black metal trio.
The project has released three demos under Defiled Light and Hatenoise Rex, a compilation under Order of Theta, a noise EP under Big Pharma Records, and two noise EPs under Xenoglossy. The project is lyrically and visually influenced by avantgarde and contemporary art and Dada movement especially.

Aisna is a black metal one-man band influenced by Etruscan culture.
It was originally a folk project based on Etruscan culture and released a demo on vinyl CDr in 2015. In 2017 Aisna absorbed the black metal project Februus, which released a demo called "Sacnisa" on Masked Dead Records. "Sacnisa" was re-released on Xenoglossy Productions under the Aisna monicker in July 2017.

XP011 - ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS / DEATHVOID miniCD split is OUT NOW.

You can listen, download and purchase a physical copy HERE

Split between Deathvoid and Illuminated Manuscripts, an instrumental one man band from Tartu, Estonia. Heliogabalus from Veia and Batrakos on guitars as guest. Deathvoid is back with their surreal and abstract raw black noise barrage.
A conceptual split about lucid dreaming, with two different themes: the first side is about exploring sunken cities, the second side is about visiting familiar, yet surreal interiors, like a fading feverish false memory. Really personal lyrics on this side.
The artwork is a representation of that.
2 panel booklet.

MICROCOSMYS / LA TORTURE DES TENEBRES SPLIT CASSETTE - THE GODS THEMSELVES
(ltd. 66 copies, out on July 13th)

The microcosmys / La Torture des Ténèbres split is premiered on Toilet ov Hell. Stream "The Gods Themselves" in full in the article below: http://www.toiletovhell.com/split-premi ... hemselves/

You can pre-order the cassette from Breathe Plastic Records:
breatheplastic.bandcamp.com/album/the-gods-themselves
or from us:
xenoglossyproductions.bandcamp.com/album/the-gods-themselves

"The effect is one of entropy taking hold on an ascetic black metal band [microcosmys], with the entirety of a universe paying the price as machine beeps and boops implode inward upon shrieks of terror and stuttering, unpredictable riffs."
"If microcosmys is the sound of a galaxy fallen victim to a data black hole, La Torture des Ténèbres is the sound of a cosmos in the throes of a very human chaos."
"Listening to The Gods Themselves, it really feels as though two competing factions of man from parallel worlds are vying to be the first to make the other’s reality go nova."

VOLAND - VOLAND 2 CASSETTE

►Release date: 10 August 2018
►Format: Cassette (25 copies)
►PRE-ORDER: https://xenoglossyproductions.bandcamp. ... m/voland-2

"Voland 2" is the newest EP by the eponymous Italian duo and it is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (1917). It is also inspired by the artistic movements of that historical period, such as poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, realist painter I. E. Repin and constructivism, as can be seen from the cover artwork.
With their trademark epic black metal style Voland - formed by Haiwas and Rimmon, also members of Veratrum - carry the listener into a tragic and grandiose story; orchestrations and symphonic pieces are fused together with extreme metal elements, creating music filled with pathos and evoking ferocious yet epic sonic landscapes. Harsh and heroic vocals are the cherry on top, with lyrics sung both in Italian and Russian languages.

Support the band:
volandblack.bandcamp.com/album/voland-2
Mini-cd version (ltd. 50 copies) released by Masked Dead Records.

Amazing words for "Voland 2" by GBHBL (Games, Brrrains & A Headbanging Life). 9 out of 10: https://gbhbl.com/ep-review-voland-vola ... d-records/

"Such an interesting concept has resulted in such great music that you can’t help but wonder how a full album would have turned out. You can picture a smokey bar with down-trodden patrons enjoying their vodka".

Red tape still available (pre-order): https://xenoglossyproductions.bandcamp. ... m/voland-2

XP018 - PERPETUUM MOBILE - PARADOXA EMBLEMATA

Alchemy and emblems themed black metal/hardcore punk project, an enigmatic concept album about mystic Dionysius Andreas Freher's opus "Paradoxa Emblemata".
Each track covers one (or more) emblem(s) of the "Paradoxa", with lyrics arranged from each emblem's inscription.

Musically, the album is an intense blend of metalpunk akin to bands like Bone Awl, Ornamental Headpiece and Raspberry Bulbs and blackened grindcore, Dephosphorus-style.

Limited cassette pre-order: https://xenoglossyproductions.bandcamp. ... -emblemata

Thanks to Indy Metal Vault for premiering two tracks from "Paradoxa Emblemata":
"Just shy of two-and-a-half minutes combined, they provide a quick and dirty introduction as to what listeners can expect from the album as a whole: short songs with primitive-sounding riffs, vomitous vocals, and bracingly raw production".
