Charnel Music

Charnel Music was a record label devoted to releasing unusual music ranging from sheer noise assault to rhythmic and psychedelic musics. Our releases included CDs from Crash Worship, Mainliner, Trance, and Gravitar. In addition to the releases on Charnel Music itself, we had the Circular Reasoning division, for somewhat more accessible music that included Japan's Angel'in Heavy Syrup and San Francisco's Tel Basta.

The label is currently on indefinite hiatus. No plans are being made for new releases, though we have learned to never say never. If you're in a band, please don't contact us right now. If the label activates again for new releases, we'll update this site.
