JUNIUS will be on the road in support of their latest release Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light

Rolling Stone calls JUNIUS  ?A Hard Rock Dream Come True.?  JUNIUS will be on the road in support of their latest release Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light, which is out now. Fans can order their copy of Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light here. The album marks the completion of their conceptual trilogy which began in 2009 with their evoking LP The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist, depicted by Rolling Stone as, “a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and The Smiths” followed by 2011’s Reports From The Thresholds of Death. The critically acclaimed 2014 EP, Days of the Fallen Sun, was lauded by Pitchfork as their “strongest and most sensuous work to date”.

Praise for Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light:

“?striking a stunning balance of brutality and beauty. Spellbinding and heartbreaking, gripping from the first note to the last?? – Rolling Stone

“A rich, immersive experience, a bleak jewel that takes obsession as its theme and rewards it in equal measure.” –

“A brooding opus of frenetic crescendos, sweeping vocals and celestial landscapes.” – Magnet

“This darkly lush epic is the best soundtrack for reveling in the melancholy of actually living since My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless.” Alternative Press

Whilst not working on the new material, JUNIUS have spent the past three years touring across North America and Europe with acts including Solstafir, Caspian, Long Distance Calling and Wolves Like Us – just to name a few, as well as making a featured performance at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in 2015.

Steven Wilson
released his critically acclaimed new album To the Bone this past August, with international music critics lauding the artist for continuing to expand his musical boundaries. Wilson will return to North America for a Spring 2018 tour in support of the album.

Wilson, described by Planet Rock as “one of the most prolific and unrivalled artists of our time,” will launch the trek on April 20 in Quebec. The tour runs through May 14 in Phoenix, Arizona and will stop in major cities along the way.

Wilson’s live performances are often unforgettable, like the time he performed at New York City’s The Beacon Theater without being able to use his voice. It was a show that Rolling Stone hailed as “stirring” and highlighted the “pop determination that runs through Wilson’s dense layers of shadow and rhythmic restlessness.”

All Steven Wilson North American tour dates are below.

The video for “Nowhere Now” has arrived, as well. Watch it here.

“Nowhere Now” is a gloriously soaring paean to the joys of everyday escapism. The video for the track was shot on location at and around Atacama Large Millimeter Array (Alma) in Chile ? the world famous, high altitude radio telescope array. The video was directed and edited by Wilson’s long time visual collaborator Lasse Hoile.

Upon release, To the Bone debuted at a career-high Top 3 on the Independent Albums chart, and Top 10 on the Billboard Top Rock and Alternative Albums Charts. It also landed at #3 on the UK charts, which was another career high, and at #1 on the Finnish Albums Chart.

Press praise was constant and universally positive for To the Bone.

Mojo awarded it a four-star review, noting the album “keeps its pop and prog influences in a near perfect balance,” while Uncut labeled it “a lush and ambitious piece of progressive pop.” Q enthused that To the Bone is “wonderfully executed? pop brilliance” and Prog labeled it “fervent and meticulous.”

Below is a sampling of further accolades the press has bestowed upon To the Bone.

?Repeated listening reveals that Wilson’s brand of progressive pop is so multivalently textured and expertly crafted that its aesthetic and sonic palette refuse to be contained under a single rock umbrella. As such, To the Bone stands with Wilson’s best work.? ?All Music Guide

“In post-truth times, joyous music may seem absurd, but Wilson makes it, and the times we live in, feel alright.” ? Pop Matters

To the Bone ends up as the most catchy-yet-heavy work he’s made under his own name (and perhaps ever, comparable only to his early-noughties albums with Porcupine Tree).” ?All About Jazz

“An album so ambitious in its musicality that also extends an olive branch of accessibility to the more pop-minded.” ? Entertainment Voice

“The immaculately clean production, thought-provoking lyrics, and refined aesthetic make it an excellent introduction to the qualities that make Steven Wilson such an important songwriter and producer in modern music, prog or otherwise.” ?Under The Radar Mag

“A pop/rock record this beautifully organic and well-crafted deserves to reach many ears, and Wilson should be proud of its many merits as one of this year’s most thoroughly enjoyable experiences so far.” ? Sputnik Music

“I is, above all else, a pleasure to listen to, complimented by a lush mix of electronic and traditional instrumentation.” ?Soundlab

“Broadening of Wilson’s tone, with brighter colors shining through the artist?s usual grey and white.” ? Spectrum Culture

“A serious contender for album of the year, To the Bone oozes style and creativity in a unique, yet satisfying blend of genres.” ? Cryptic Rock

VATICAN To Embark On New Tour Dates In Support Of Ache Of Eternity Including Set At Hope For Shelter Fest

Savanna, Georgia-based VATICAN announces more upcoming tour dates supporting their Ache Of Eternity EP, which was issued through Sorrow Carrier Records at the end of August.

The vicious straight edge outfit will take their crushing metallic hardcore wrath into the southernmost regions of the country on a week-long massacre surrounding their performance at Hope For Shelter Fest in San Antonio alongside Homewrecker, Sworn Vengeance, Die Young, Greg Bennick (Trial), and many others. The first four shows, including the festival see VATICAN touring alongside Purity, Trust Issues, and Dwell, the final two shows with Strengthen What Remains and Dwell. Expect additional tour dates to be posted in the coming weeks.

Stream Ache Of Eternity at Bandcamp HERE and see the video for VATICAN’s anti-suicide anthem “Slit Of Creation” HERE.

VATICAN Tour Dates:

9/27/2017 Studio 524 – Baton Rouge, LA *

9/28/2017 The White Swan – Houston, TX *

9/29/2017 Boozers – Corpus Christi, TX *

9/30/2017 The Korova – San Antonio, TX @ Hope For Shelter Fest [info] *

* w/ Purity, Trust Issues, Dwell

# w/ Strengthen What Remains, Dwell

Ache Of Eternity is available through Sorrow Carrier Records on three color variants – black with screen-printed b-side, red with black smoke, and purple; find order options HERE.

Melding elements fans of Zao, Carcass, Converge, Poison The Well, Martyr A.D., One King Down, and similar brutalizing acts, VATICAN‘s Ache Of Eternity was recorded by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business (Advent, Torch Runner, Red Death, Joy), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Xibalba) and bears art by Spencer Guerrero and photography by Nathan Fitzgerald. Decibel Magazine offers, “There are a lot of influences at play on Ache Of Eternity-from the chaotic nature of Converge to the bulldozing heaviness of Zao, Martyr A.D. or Hatebreed-making the EP a satisfying listen from the rising hardcore band.” Metal Injection calls the EP, “a doozy for anyone that worships Zao, Poison the Well, It Dies Today, etc. Can’t deny there is a huge Swedish death metal influence in there, somewhere, either.”

Svbterranean reports that the EP, “delivers five tracks of flesh-ripping riffs, bashing grooves and breakdowns galore… Ache Of Eternity sits at the apex of this evolution, offering something that is no doubt familiar, but also dynamic and destructive. If Trustkill and Ferret Music were still operating today, VATICAN would be the type of band they would have bred.” Two Guys Metal Reviews states, “Ache Of Eternity is the sort of metallic hardcore record that cracks skulls with its punchy accuracy, tight songwriting and bone breaking breakdowns.”

BLACK MARE: Death Magick Mother Out Now And Streaming Via Magic Bullet; Tour With Junius To Commence This Week

Death Magick Mother is the latest studio offering from Los Angeles, California’s BLACK MARE. Seven songs in length, this documentation captures driving force, Sera Timms, amidst a dynamic cohesion and confluence of inspiration unlike any prior. Whereas previous output operated under a founding principle of rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity toward trace-like escapism, Death Magick Mother is Timms stepping right in front of the lens for a closeup.

Death Magick Mother is out now digitally via Magic Bullet with LPs to follow. Stream the record in full and order yours today at THIS LOCATION.

In their Pick Of The Week, Meat Mead Metal writes, “Timms has had an extensive career with bands including Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini, but Death Magick Mother is her most striking, from-the-bloody-heart recording of her life. She is not letting anyone steamroll her or others, and she is using BLACK MARE as a means of protest and warning. This is a moving, shadowy record that not only sounds amazing but should have like-minded people rising up and fighting alongside her.” Toilet Ov Hell, likens Death Magick Mother to an “endless funeral procession stopping traffic, breaking up the monotony of a rainy Thursday in February,” while Ave Noctum gushes, “the vocals soar over the instrumentals, with Sera’s voice a force of nature amidst bold arrangements that are propelled by crisp production quality. The harmonies feel both fragile and powerful, almost spectral in places, densely layered against ringing guitar chords and slow, steady, funereal percussion. The dynamics of this record feel very carefully considered, and give the impression that creating this album was an extremely cathartic process. It gives the illusion of something much larger than itself.”

Elsewhere the sentiment echoes. Cvlt Nation writes, “Death Magick Mother embodies the power of music to create, effect and destroy, and is a stunning sophomore release and a must have in your record collection,” furthering, “Listening to Timms’ ethereal voice on ‘Ingress To Form,’ it’s no surprise that BLACK MARE was invited to perform at the recent Women’s Mass benefit hosted by The Satanic Temple – there is an electric atmosphere to her music that makes my hairs stand on end and my skin break out in goose bumps, as if she’s harnessing the electromagnetic waves traversing the earth with her voice and directing them with purpose at our self-harming species.” Drunk In A Graveyard concurs, “It is wild, delicate, feminine, and oddly brutal. It is stark and lonely. It is every wave crashing inside my heart, every wild impulse.” Adds Echoing Magazine, “Death Magick Motheris a sonic form of ethereal darkness with pained expressions of minor-key somberness, all brought together by guitars and melodies that seamlessly traverse clean and shimmering tones with moments of distorted anger.”

Mixed by Andrew Clinco of Drab Majesty and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, on BLACK MARE‘s Death Magick Mother, bolder arrangements lend themselves toward soaring, dynamic vocal melodies, and nuanced harmonization to highly-satisfying effect. Spot-on performances and command of all instrumentation across the spectrum further propels the sense of arrival in mastery over her chosen craft. In many ways, this album is an awakening for both its creator and listeners alike.

Following a recent midnight ceremony in celebration of a total eclipse with France’s Celeste and a women’s mass replete with a bloodletting ritual, BLACK MARE — hailed by Heathen Harvest for instantly creating a, “sacred or ritualistic-themed atmosphere,” in live form — will take on a traditional tour of the western United States in direct support of Junius beginning later this week. See confirmed dates below.

BLACK MARE w/ Junius, Mustard Gas & Roses:

9/21/2017 Yucca Tap Room – Phoenix, AZ

9/22/2017 The Viper Room – West Hollywood, CA w/ Hours

9/23/2017 The Golden Bull – Oakland, CA w/ Daxma

9/24/2017 Cafe Colonial – Sacramento, CA

9/25/2017 Tonic Lounge – Portland, OR w/ Wovoka, Drainage

9/26/2017 Highline Bar – Seattle, WA w/ They Rise We Die

9/27/2017 The Shredder – Boise, ID

9/28/2017 Urban Lounge – Salt Lake City, UT

9/29/2017 Hi-Dive Denver – Denver, CO w/ Ghosts Of Glaciers

10/01/2017 The Sidewinder – Austin, TX

BLACK MARE is the solo project of Sera Timms, vocalist and bassist for Ides Of Gemini and of the now-disbanded Black Math Horseman. With a focus on rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity, BLACK MARE steps outside the collaborative dynamic to reveal a creative process that is all Sera’s own. Her songs traverse hidden realms, fragments of dreams, submerged memories, and mythical imagery. Where Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini demand volume and collusion, BLACK MARE requires quiet contemplation. If Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini seek to summon the deafening roar of inevitability, BLACK MARE delivers its verdicts on cresting waves and solemn whispers. And yet each operates, in its own way, within the darkened spheres of oceanic hypnosis.


This Friday, September 22nd, one of the most potent and highly regarded bands in heavy metal today – Wolves In The Throne Room – will open a portal into their mythic ethereal heathen landscape with the release of Thrice Woven, via their own labelArtemisia Records. On Thrice Woven, WITTR re-imagine black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest; it a glorious return to the blazing and furious Black Metal that they alone can create. Listen to the album in full today via Noisey.

Thrice Woven begins with “Born from the Serpent?s Eye” a true thrashing black metal epic that is bisected with a haunting northern lament sung by Swedish star Anna von Hausswolff. “The Old Ones Are With Us” opens with the crackling of a fire and the voice of Steve Von Till (Neurosis) invoking the springtime thaw. It then storms into a dirge inspired by 90?s Finnish doom with lyrics that celebrate Imbolc, the holy day which marks the end of winter and the first stirrings of spring. Figures from Norse mythology intertwine with personal heartbreak and rebirth in the bleak “Angrboda.” The song is named after a frost giantess who birthed Fenrir Wolf, a beast who was destined to destroy the world and murder the gods.

A raven?s wings stir the air in the interlude “Mother Owl, Father Ocean.” Anna von Hausswolff returns in a duet with Turkish harpist Zeynep Oyku, forlorn industrial atmospheres haunt the mix, Hausswolff?s lyrics, sung in Swedish, echo over a barren grey seascape. “Fires Roar in the Palace of the Moon” is the classic Cascadian Black Metal epic, the third eye opens to see holy rivers being born from the ice on the tallest peaks, the lyrics offer blessings to the waters of the earth as they flow from the high places to the source of darkness, the ocean.

With the release of their third studio album, Lilith, set for October 27th, BUTCHER BABIES have premiered the music video for the album’s title track exclusively with Loudwire. The new video is heavily influenced by the story of Lady Bathory, telling the tale of what lengths some women will go to maintain their youth and beauty. Directed by Strati Hovartos, the video serves as a keen encapsulation of the violence and sensuality that runs deep throughout the band’s upcoming record. Fans can watch the new video for “Lilith” via the link below.

Last year, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU released a special 10th anniversary edition of their defining Young Mountain LP via Magic Bullet Records. The reissue includes a previously-unheard song entitled “Sleep,” recorded in 2006 during the initial tracking sessions for the album. The record is available digitally HERE, on CD HERE, and on vinyl featuring copper metallic inks and a UV gloss flood across a traditional LP jacket HERE.

On June 6th, 2006 (06.06.06), Texas-bred instrumental rock collective THIS WILL DESTROY YOU unleashed their debut Young Mountain and never looked back. Initially recorded as a demo/document to commemorate four guys’ college band, the scope never centered around the notion of the music being commercially released, as most of the band members intended to move on to more traditional careers after school. The initial pressing was a mere 1000 copies, just enough to have something to sell at the merch table on the inaugural tour with labelmates Sparrows Swarm And Sing, via retail stores, and the label’s mailorder.

What happened from there can only be described as a true overnight sensation. The album’s soaring guitar-lead dynamism, cascading cinematic passages, and jarring crescendos captured the hearts and minds of independent music listeners immediately upon release and has, a solid decade later, yet to loosen its grip. As Young Mountain celebrates its ten-year anniversary, a retrospective look at the six-track, thirty-six-minute composition shows quite clearly why it has always been considered a masterpiece by much of THIS WILL DESTROY YOU‘s ardent international fanbase and continues to permeate deeper into global consciousness to this day.

THIS WILL DESTROY YOU‘s debut LP Young Mountain proves that when the mood is there, it doesn’t need 15 minutes per song to develop.” — Pitchfork

*MTH Headliner


Madame Mayhem is a true rocker with an eclectic style in every aspect of life -merging theatricality with hard-hitting, rocking tunes. And on October 20, 2017, she will be unveiling a brand new album, ?Ready for Me? (via Metalville label in the UK and Europe, and HeadBall Records in the US). The just-completed album features a powerhouse team of rock talent, including producer Corey Lowery (Saint Asonia), Clint Lowery (Sevendust), Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence), and both Bevan Davies and Ryan Bennett (Madame Mayhem) on drums.

Youtube link for album teaser here: 

?All the songs on this album are super personal to me,? explains Mayhem. ?About my frustrations, trying to get through the rough times, my anxieties and insecurities, some messed up stuff that has happened to me along the way, relationship devastation, you name it. I noticed it only afterwards that audiences are really getting ‘the dirt’ on me through this album. I was super honest, vulnerable, and didn’t hold back during the writing process of these songs. Corey Lowery and I are a great team because he makes me feel comfortable to spill my guts during writing sessions, and during recordings, to re live these situations I am writing about so whoever is listening gets all of what we wanted to give.

And it turns out the album?s first single/video is the perfect intro to the album – a song titled ?All Around the World.?

“All Around The World? is really about feeling like it’s you against the world, and racing against time. It’s about the pressures to succeed in such a short amount of time, people thinking they know best, and are lost in their own worlds, only concerned about themselves. In this rat race we all live in today, it’s getting harder and harder to break through, even if you work your ass off. The sound is upbeat, kind of a more pop punk ish vibe. Corey Lowery and I thought, though we usually are huge fans of incorporating harmonies in our arrangements, that since this song is really about feeling like it’s just you against the world, so we tried to make it sound like just one melody line, one voice, against all this hard hitting music. The verses are also supposed to make you feel that anxiety and panic that I have on a daily basis, as I’m sure many of us do. But its a super fun song to rock out to when you are just listening to it without over analyzing it.?

Other album standouts include “War You Started” (?Hard hitting high energy – first track off the album to get listeners pumped up definitely one of my favorites!!! Also one of our favorites to kick off our sets with!?) Also, ?So Wrong (Lay You To Rest),? ?It?s about some really dark messed up stuff I went through and the rage that was building inside me because of it – about laying to rest the stress I was having over the situation. This song is also hard hitting and the vibes from the verse-pre chorus-chorus, even the breakdown and solo take you through the different stages of the feelings one can go through when dealing with traumatic experiences; and the relief you have when you finally tell a loved one or anyone that thing that you tried to bury inside you that you didn?t know was holding you back.?). Plus, the album-closing title track. ??Ready for Me? is the name of the album and the 13th/final track on the record. I thought it would be a strong album title because it’s basically – Are you ready for me? I don’t think you’re ready for me; ready for me or not, here I am.?).

(Digital pre orders coming soon for North America)

With hard rock roots and melodies that show off her vocal range, Madame Mayhem is excited to bring these new, unreleased songs to the masses this fall, as she will be hitting the road with Austin John Winkler (formerly the voice of Hinder) and Smile Empty Soul this fall on the Love Sick Radio Tour (presented by M7 Agency) in the U.S.A., before heading over to Europe and the U.K. for dates with Fozzy and Hardcore Superstar.

?I am so excited to play this new music live! Really looking forward to touring Europe and The UK in October and November 2017!?

The singer has performed across the United States to packed rooms, including B.B.King Blues Club, The Roxy, The Viper Room, Bowery Ballroom, Knitting Factory, a residency at The Cutting Room, the Bluebird Café during Grammy nomination week, Shiprocked Cruise 2017, Sunfest 2017, Sturgis Buffalo Chip 2017, and has performed on national tours with renowned and respected artists such as Doro and Mushroomhead.

Madame Mayhem has been covered in both fashion and rock music media worldwide, which includes feature coverage in Aquarian Weekly, Brave Words, Fashion Style, Gannett, Guitar World, KNAC, Loudwire (her music videos have been top 10 for multiple weeks), New Noise, Revolver, The Day In Rock, listed in ROCKwell UnScene Magazine?s top 5 Best Female Vocalists of 2016, and more. Additionally, she made most added on the CMJ Loud Radio Charts with over 60 stations nationally in the United States.

With ?Ready for Me? and tour dates on the horizon, Madame Mayhem is setting the stage for what promises to be a big 2018 with this string of worldwide tour dates in 2017!

THE OCEAN: Revolver Premieres “Turritopsis Dohrnii;” Pelagic Records’ In The Twilight, These Rocks Have Teeth – A Compilation Of Contemporary Post Rock And Metal Nears Release

Pelagic Records — founded in 2009 by The Ocean guitarist Robin Staps — will release In The Twilight, These Rocks Have Teeth this fall; a compilation of one-hundred-eighty minutes of contemporary post rock, metal, and experimental rock music. The release showcases the entire Pelagic Records roster and includes bands such as Mono, Pg.Lost, Klone, Wang Wen, and many others as well as previously unreleased tracks by THE OCEAN and new signing Spook The Horses.

In advance of the massive collection’s September 29th release, Revolver is offering up an official premiere of THE OCEAN’s “Turritopsis Dohrnii,” at THIS LOCATION.

The track serves as THE OCEAN‘s first output since their 2015 Transcendental split EP with Japan’s post rock legends Mono, a release which inaugurated the Pelagic Split Series – later to be followed by editions featuring exclusive contributions by Cult Of Luna and The Old Wind, Tiny Fingers and EF, and LLNN and Wovoka.

Issues Staps of “Turritopsis Dohrnii,” “This track was recorded as part of the Pelagial session. ‘Turritopsis dohrnii’ is a jellyfish that lives in the Mediterranean. It is the only immortal species on Earth. Jellyfish are weird creatures. They start their lives as polyps which are basically something closer to a plant than to an animal, something that grows on a rock. These polyps reproduce asexually, by cell division. The result becomes the free-swimming medusa, a jellyfish. Jellies then reproduce sexually, before they die… except this little guy here. Once the adult form of the species have reproduced, they revert back into their juvenile polyp state. They shrink, their tentacles disappear and they sink to the ocean floor to start their unique life cycle all over again… and not just once, but infinitely.

“This track begins and ends with the same part, reflecting that eternal cycle,” he continues. “Learning about this tiny creature made me think about how we are desperately striving for physical rejuvenation and intellectual immortality… the other side of the coin is the fact that we barely see any old people these days. In a city like Berlin, everyone is young, healthy and pretty. Elder people get locked away in homes that most of us will never get to see or visit, unless we have family members unfortunate enough to become old.”

In The Twilight, These Rocks Have Teeth features artwork by Max Löffler. Preorders are currently available HERE.

“Pelagic Records has become an increasingly vital outlet for modern progressive metal, post-metal and beyond,” Rock-A-Rolla wrote last year in their Pelagic Records label feature while German prog magazine Eclipsed crowned Pelagic, “one of the most influential labels,” in the realm of post metal, post rock, and prog.

While the compilation’s first disc, In The Twilight…, focuses on the more calm, post-rock oriented side of the label, the second disc, … These Rocks Have Teeth, dives deep down into the realm of dark and epic heavy music that the label has become known and loved for, throughout their catalogue of now eighty-five releases. This compilation is a carefully designed and very listenable playlist, a perfect ride through the vast Pelagic Records universe!

Thank you to all who have helped put this together, you have my esteemed gratitude.”

GENE HOGLAN has recently been promoting his latest musical endeavor, Brendon Small’s Galaktikon, alongside musician/actor/writer/comedian Brendon Small and bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller.

KING PARROT: Australian Grind Practitioners Unveil Hilarious “Piss Wreck” Video; Ugly Produce To See Release This Week + US Tour With Superjoint Begins Friday

View / Share KING PARROT’s “Piss Wreck” Video at THIS LOCATION.

This Friday, Australian grind practitioners KING PARROT will unleash the maniacal fruit of their Ugly Produce full-length. Slated for release on September 22nd in North America via Housecore Records, in Europe via Agonia Records, and in Australia via EVP Recordings, Ugly Produce is a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems. Recorded at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster’s Jason Fuller, this is no walk in the park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Ugly Produce is a twisted, cantankerous ride through an outback graveyard, high on PCP, wreaking of animal feculence.

In advance of this week’s release, the band has unsheathed a hilarious new videoclip for “Piss Wreck” viewable at THIS LOCATION.

And if you missed it, feast your eyes on KING PARROT’s video single for “Ten Pounds Of Shit In A Five Pound Bag” as well as previously released singles “Die Before You Die” and “Disgrace Yourself” RIGHT HERE.

Ugly Produce will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Preorders are currently available at the official KING PARROT website HERE. Digital pre orders – which come with an instant download of “Ten Pounds Of Shit In A Five Pound Bag” – are available via Apple Music HERE and iTunes HERE.

Ugly Produce fuses the raw fury of KING PARROT‘s critically-lauded debut album Bite Your Head Off and mashes it with the twisted sophistication of their ARIA-nominated follow-up Dead Set. A repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock, the band’s unique, over-the-top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on Ugly Produce while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with: angst, aggression, absurdity, and antics.

Issues New Noise Magazine of the release, “Ugly Produce is one of those works of music that gives off a physical feeling. In the case of KING PARROT, that feeling is a layer of clammy, salty, dirty sweat that gets one’s skin to stick together. That description might not sell a lot of things in life, but it sure as hell sells the work of KING PARROT, for their third LP is an utter blast of ridiculous. Taking elements of death, grind, thrash, and punk, there is no taking it easy when listening to each of the ten tracks that the band lays out.” Amnplify notes, “The album has attitude, and it’s attitude that doesn’t feel forced or contrived. Every one of Matt Young’s screamed lyrics feels sincere which certainly adds to the sense of legitimacy. Established fans will certainly lap this album up; it has everything you’d want from a KING PARROT release. On the flip side, people who have struggled to see what the fuss is about to date will find this album to be a more focused and compelling listen than anything the band has released previously.” Metal Wani writes, “This album is packed with ten tracks geared to terrorize. Each song bristles with intensity and an undercurrent of insanity. The total package reeks of the pungent stench of sweat soaked hardcore music.” While Skulls ‘N’ Bones concurs, “KING PARROT are here to show that extreme metal can be completely punishing while still retaining a sense of humor. Ugly Produce is nothing less than stellar.”

In conjunction with the release of Ugly Produce, KING PARROT will return to the US supporting Housecore labelmates Superjoint along with DevilDriver. Additional support will be provided by Cane Hill and Child Bite (also on Housecore Records). The tour will run from September 22nd to October 20th with KING PARROT performing through October 14th.

KING PARROT has evolved into a full-fledged touring and creative force barely stopping for a breath since their inception on the international metal scene in 2013. Following tour after tour with the likes of Soulfly, Obituary, Down, Cattle Decapitation, Exodus, Superjoint, Voivod, and their own headlining tours in Australia, KING PARROT has become hardened road warriors possessing a rare and deep hunger for the raucous and off-the-wall live shows they’ve become revered for. These outings fuel the creative drive within the band to compose only the most angst-driven and vile expressions to ensure maximum involvement from audiences that lap up every frantic beat, chainsaw riff, and psychotic scream. Ugly Produce is a testament to the blood, sweat, and tears poured into everything KING PARROT does.

GRIDFAILURE: I Shall Not Survive Another Winter Streaming At No Echo; Record Sees Release On The Autumnal Equinox This Friday

From amidst the forests just north of New York City, the cult of GRIDFAILURE continues to spew its discordant brew of off-kilter experimental terror with the release of I Shall Not Survive Another Winter this Friday for the Autumnal Equinox. No Echo is now streaming the whole recording early alongside a short interview.

Each song on I Shall Not Survive Another Winter grows longer than the one preceding it, the record further exploring full-on post-apocalyptic dementia; a vision of Post-Sixth Mass-Extinction Skullduggery which is the concept of the upcoming Teeth Collection and Drought Stick albums and several surrounding mini-releases portraying a grim vision of humanity’s future. A nearby reality where those who have survived mankind’s override by artificial intelligence, the ecological rebellion of our planet, and thermonuclear warfare amidst our own kind strive to rebuild society, and are continually thwarted. Thriving only amidst the gutters and back-alleys of a scorched culture,GRIDFAILURE‘s sound reflects this impending cross-contamination of horrors.

No Echo is streaming I Shall Not Survive Another Winter early, paired with a brief inquisition with the creator, warning listeners, “After soaking in GRIDFAILURE‘s new I Shall Not Survive Another Winter EP for about a week now, I’m still having trouble finding the perfect way to articulate what I’m hearing. What I can tell you is that it’s the kind of nightmarish soundscape that is better taken in via headphones. There’s a lot of layering on the EP’s eight tracks, and that doesn’t just include traditional instruments.”

Hear I Shall Not Survive Another Winter at No Echo HERE.

I Shall Not Survive Another Winter will see digital release via Bandcamp on the Autumnal Equinox, this Friday, September 22nd; preorder the digital version RIGHT HERE. A physical version will follow.

I Shall Not Survive Another Winter sees GRIDFAILURE creator David Brenner delivering effects-soaked guitars, bass, vocals, keyboards, synth, harmonica, field recordings, drums and percussion, and more, as well as handling all production and artwork. Several hench persons tightly embedded in the faction supply a diverse range of instrumentation throughout the release, including BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot), Richard Muller (Vise Massacre, The Third Kind, Future Hunter), Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe), Robert Levitt, Christian Molenaar (Those Darn Gnomes), and Mark Steuer (Those Darn Gnomes).

Watch for the new GRIDFAILURE track “Vultures Amassing Through The Night” appearing on the upcoming free Halloween-themed digital compilation, Razor Blades & Chocolate, curated by, in mid-October. That is to be followed by the first installment of GRIDFAILURE‘s new When The Lights Go Out series on Halloween.

Apart from the slew of titles released within the year-and-a-half of GRIDFAILURE‘s existence, two conceptual albums — Teeth Collection and Drought Stick — have been under construction the entire time, formulated on their alchemist’s most primal, primitive, and rudimentary instincts, yet slowly morphing awaiting completion as the sound of the unit explores new realms.

Prosthetic Records Announce Signing of UK Crust, Anarchist Black Metal Group DAWN RAY’D

UK based black metal band DAWN RAY’D have officially signed to Prosthetic Records. The politically-charged three-piece from Liverpool will release their first full length album, The Unlawful Assembly, on digipack compact disc on November 24, 2017, with the digital release hitting all platforms on October 27. Pre-order the CD now at: The LP will be out on October 2 via Feast of Tentacles in the UK and EU and Halo of Flies in North America.

The Unlawful Assembly further sharpens DAWN RAY’D‘s precise malevolent attack of melody and blasts, delving deeper and reaching beyond the depths explored in their 2015 debut EP, A Thorn, A Blight.

Recorded by Tom Dring at Vagrant Studios, The Unlawful Assembly is divided into two parts: The Wild Service and The Wild Magic; it is equal parts malice and spite; ethereality and exultation. From the clean singing of “A Litany To Cowards” to the thrashing pace of “Emptiness Beneath The Great Emptiness”, the album, “breathes new fire into black metal’s small but sturdy leftist tradition, crafting potent, violin-laced atmospheric black metal songs that double as battle hymns for the class war,” according to Noisey.

Already receiving vast critical praise including mentions of “Album of the Year,” DAWN RAY’D are using the platform to express their political views and beliefs, which simply stated, are rooted in anarchism. The album as a whole can be dissected and examined on many levels however with the lyrical themes being as complex as the music.

The band have already made their presence known in the US through a recent summer tour with Michgan-based atmospheric black metal group Dakhma. They’ve done countless DIY shows throughout Europe and have played the Paranoya Fest in Germany, No Sanctuary in Croatia and Fluff Fest in Czech Republic.

The Unlawful Assembly is a multi-pronged attack, but with one consistent message: inaction is not an option.

DAWN RAY’D Tour Dates:

23.09 – The Wheatsheaf – Oxford, UK

06.10 – Exchange – Bristol, UK

NATVRE’S: MetalSucks Premieres Title Track To Early Cvlts; New LP By Greek Black Metal Act Nears Release Through Argento Records

MetalSucks is offering an exclusive early stream of “Early Cvlts,” the title track to the second LP by Thessaloniki, Greece-based black metal trio, NATVRE’S, as the record nears release through Argento Records.

Combining mid-tempo, over-saturated riffs with feral blast beats and lacerating vocals, NATVRE’S create a hateful maelstrom of terror and controlled chaos that is impossible to forget. The Hellenic commandos now offer the torrential maelstrom of their second proper full-length, Early Cvlts, the album showcasing the band’s terrorizing yet supremely infectious ’90s-inspired blackened arts through eight methodical songs recorded at Stelth Sound Studiosand completed with artwork by Luca Devinu.

The band offers with the “Early Cvlts” advance stream, “This song is what NATVRE’S is all about. It’s the song on the album that has the biggest punk influence and it’s a sort of statement against the narcissism and pseudo avant-garde attitude that is quite popular in Black Metal today. It’s a song about reality and self-liberation through following the path that leads to the depth.”

With their debut of the new song, MetalSucks issues, “their music fucking rips. Part second wave black metal and part ferocious punk and hardcore, their second full-length album, Early Cvlts, is wholly menacing and fierce… It’s dramatic and cinematic, both highly focused and slightly off the rails. In short: it’s black metal the way black metal should be.”

Hear “Early Cvlts” by NATVRE’S only through MetalSucks at THIS LOCATION.

The previously-issued “Death Of The Earth” is also streaming at Cvlt Nation HERE.

Argento Records will issue NATVRE’S Early Cvlts digitally and on black and limited colored vinyl on October 27th; find preorders HERE.

NATVRE’S is one of the most destructive black metal units to ever come out of Greece. Formed in 2014, the outfit has been seen supporting the likes of Destroyer 666 and Kawir in their native country. The trio self-released their debut album, Wrath, in 2015; the record immediately sold-out, and was reissued in 2016 through Argento Records as the band was forging new material for its follow-up.

Stand by for additional audio samples and other band news to be issued in the bleak weeks ahead.

KOHTI TUHOA To Issue Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta LP Through Southern Lord In North America; Tracks Streaming As East Coast Tour Dates Approach

Helsinki, Finland’s hardcore/punk squad, KOHTI TUHOA, returns with the by-the-throat second LP,Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta. With two tracks now available for early streaming, the new album will see North American release through Southern Lord in November, with Svart handling the European release.

KOHTI TUHOA‘s 2015-issued debut LP, Rutiinin Orja,was considered by many as the most exciting hardcore punk record out of Scandinavia in ages. Their sophomore album Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta is constructed from similar building blocks of aggression based at sociopolitical injustice, but with the band’s sound taking a step further towards genre classicists such as Discharge and Disorder, not to mention classic Finnish hardcore punk acts such as Terveet Kädet, Varaus, and Riistetyt.

Recorded in May 2017 at V.R. Studio in Turku, Finland, Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta was engineered by Jussi Vuola, mixed by Jussi Vuola and KOHTI TUHOA, mastered and cut by Jukka Sarapää at Timmion Cutting, and finalized with artwork by returning artist Jaakko Karjula. The album crushes twelve relentless tracks in twenty minutes, including a cover of “Saatanan Lampaat” by Painajainen.

Stream KOHTI TUHOA’s “Kiire Läpi Elämän” and “Meille On Valehdeltu” from Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta at Southern Lord HERE.

Southern Lord will issue Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta on LP and digital formats on November 24th. Digital preorders are live HERE; stand by for physical pre order links.

KOHTI TUHOA advances the release of the riotous new Pelon Neljäs Valtakunta with their first North American tour dates, having scheduled a run of East Coast dates for early October. The tour starts October 6th in Philadelphia and blasts through Washington, Richmond, Pittsburgh, New York City, Boston, Montreal, and ends in Toronto October 14th.

To purchase CHILD BITE’s Negative Noise, visit the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. Stream the record at the Housecore Bandcamp page HERE.

“This is for the open-minded punk, headbanger, or weirdo. If you like your music a little on the ugly side, you owe it to yourself to check them out.” — Punk News

“Negative Noise possesses a brilliance and individuality all its own and is a refreshing breath of fetid air in an era saturated with a d-beat-only approach to punk and hardcore.” — No Clean Singing

“…an adventurous slice of loud rock… They have the aggressive force of hardcore, but it’s filtered through grimy noise rock.” — New Noise Magazine

“References within the sphere of metal are hard to come by, but imagine if the first Mr. Bungle album wasn’t annoying circus music, and then remember that this band once did a 5″ record of Anal Cunt covers with Phil Anselmo on vocals, and you’re getting there.” — Bravewords

“Those looking for the perfect soundtrack to a sci-fi slasher B-movie will also have to look no further.” — Svbterranean

For all CHILD BITE coverage



 To be an artist?especially in the heavy music realm?is to take on the mentality and nature of a shark. On one level, you have to be hungry and willing to chase down success as if it were elusive prey. On another level, however, you have to stay moving: without development and growth, complacency and stagnation weigh heavy, dragging even the most solid debut sounds and styles into the dreary depths of monotony and boredom. When it comes to capturing this mentality and making the most of it, few bands have done it as well as Michigan post-hardcore outfit We Came As Romans.

The band will release its much-anticipated fifth album Cold Like War on October 20 through SharpTone Records.

Listen to and watch the video for the title track here.

In their expansive tenure as a band, they’ve released four full-length releases, charted #8, #11 and #21 respectively on the Billboard Top 200, performed in five continents and 40 different countries and that doesn’t even begin to touch on what they have in the works for 2017.

2017 is the start of a new era for We Came as Romans.

In a word, the album represent adversity?in all of its various forms. It is a thrilling, energetic and immensely catchy compendium of songs that run the full gambit of emotion?aggression to sorrow, love to hate?to capture the fullest extent of the conflict and turmoil We Came as Romans endured to make it to this point in their careers and their lives.

Cold Like War is about struggle, those trials, says guitarist and songwriter Joshua Moore. They can turn us towards each other, towards those we love, towards those who have supported us. Because the last two years to us have felt like this giant war?an internal war?to figure out the right path for our band? to figure out how to stay together and be happy again.

  2. Cold Like War
  3. Two Hands
  4. Lost In The Moment
  5. Foreign Fire
  6. Wasted Age
  7. Encoder
  8. If There’s Something To See (Feat. Eric Vanlerberghe from I Prevail)

NECROT: Bay Area Death Cult Prepares For North American Live Takeover With The Black Dahlia Murder; Blood Offerings Out Now On Tankcrimes

“Fans of genre forefathers Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Benediction, and Master will be in familiar territory with NECROT‘s back-to-basics brutality and the relentless hammering of solid, headbanging groove and trademark brutal yet articulate vocal style of masters Ingram, Willets and Greenway. Each track contains the perfect amount of dexterity without losing any of its vitality and it’s clear that a six-year period of honing their material has perfectly streamlined the band’s vision.” — Team Rock

Bay Area death cult NECROT will take to the streets again this fall beginning with three one-off headlining shows before joining a month-long-plus live takeover supporting The Black Dahlia Murder on their Nightbringers North American Tour. Set to begin October 5th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the band will level nearly three dozen venues through November 12th where the tour will draw to a close in

Indianapolis, Indiana. Additional support will be provided by Suffocation, Decrepit Birth, Wormwitch, and Exhumed on select shows. See all confirmed dates below.  

NECROT will be touring in support of their critically-lauded Blood Offerings full-length released in June via Tankcrimes. The record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and critics globally. Comprised of eight-tracks, Blood Offerings was captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and comes shrouded in the unhallowed cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness). Blood Offerings is out now on CD, LP, and digitally on Tankcrimes and on cassette through Sentient Ruin Laboratories. The limited vinyl edition comes as a foil-stamped, gatefold deluxe LP available in four color variants: 150 in purple splatter, 350 in gold splatter, 500 in black, and 1000 in gold.

Stream the record in full THIS LOCATION where you can also purchase the record digitally. Find physical preorders at THIS LOCATION.

# = No Suffocation
Forged in 2011, NECROT – founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, Rude, and more – unleashed the audio bone-crush of their The Labyrinthfull-length in 2016 via Tankcrimes. Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship.

“Blood Offerings offers enough simplicity and succinctness, delivered with the potency of a knife to the chest, to find its way into the collections of heavy music fans who are typically unfamiliar with death metal, a genre that’s an acquired taste, to be sure.” — Blabbermouth

“Blood Offerings is all old ground, but it is hallowed earth. We’ve heard everything played on this album before, but we’ve never heard it played quite like this. If you’re that curmudgeon who keeps saying nothing can displace your aging death metal album collection, it might be finally time to buy a new record.” – Decibel

“Metaphorically, it’s like putting your ear up to the chest of a rotting corpse and listening to the parasites eat it from the inside out. NECROT has recorded an album so putrescent you can almost smell it.” – Paste Magazine

“…a modern-day classic…Bolt Thrower played a simple, but highly aesthetic style of death metal. NECROT refreshes the template with a slew of quality, catchy riffs and accessible song structure that sounds quite original.” – Echoes And Dust

“…an album that does the region’s growling, guttural legacy proud, and with a new layer of contemporary punch.” – Treble

“…raw, fast and razor sharp…  a pummeling at its finest!” – Metal Assault

“…Blood Offerings separates itself from the pack by offering, in addition to blood, some damn fine riffs.” – Last Rites

BLACK MARE: Cvlt Nation Hosts Exclusive Stream Of “Ingress To Form” From Sera Timms’ Dark Ambient Outfit; Death Magick Mother To See Release Digitally Via Magic Bullet This Friday

Stream / Share BLACK MARE’s Ingress To Form RIGHT HERE.

Later this week, Los Angeles, California’s BLACK MARE will unleash the consuming bounty of Death Magick Mother. Seven songs in length, this documentation captures driving force, Sera Timms, amidst a dynamic cohesion and confluence of inspiration unlike any prior. Whereas previous output operated under a founding principle of rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity toward trace-like escapism, Death Magick Mother is Timms stepping right in front of the lens for a closeup.

In advance of the release of Death Magick Mother, today Cvlt Nation is hosting an exclusive premiere of Ingress To Form. Issues Timms of the track, This song started out with the idea to illustrate a raw life force energy coming into material form…I was thinking about Genesis in the Bible, and the Big Bang and many other creation theories. Chaos organized into a human form seen through the eternal Mother’s eye. Then there is harmony, and relationships form, and our bodies are like cauldrons carrying our raw life force around through these relationships which are like ingredients in the cauldron. Personally, this is about an experience of pure innocent love with someone that truly humbles you… to love someone so deeply and unconditionally that you allow your ego to be decimated over and over until all that remains in your body is love.

Adds Cvlt Nation, Death Magick Mother embodies the power of music to create, effect and destroy, and is a stunning sophomore release and a must have in your record collection. Listening to Timms’ ethereal voice on ‘Ingress To Form,’ it’s no surprise that BLACK MARE was invited to perform at the recent Women’s Mass benefit hosted by The Satanic Temple – there is an electric atmosphere to her music that makes my hairs stand on end and my skin break out in goose bumps, as if she’s harnessing the electromagnetic waves traversing the earth with her voice and directing them with purpose at our self-harming species.

Death Magick Mother will see release digitally via Magic Bullet on September 15th with LPs to follow. Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION.

Mixed by Andrew Clinco of Drab Majesty and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, on BLACK MARE‘s Death Magick Mother, bolder arrangements lend themselves toward soaring, dynamic vocal melodies, and nuanced harmonization to highly-satisfying effect. Spot-on performances and command of all instrumentation across the spectrum further propels the sense of arrival in mastery over her chosen craft. In many ways, this album is an awakening for both its creator and listeners alike.

Following a recent midnight ceremony in celebration of a total eclipse with France’s Celeste and a women’s mass replete with a bloodletting ritual, BLACK MARE will take on a traditional tour of the western United States in direct support of Junius. See confirmed dates below.

BLACK MARE is the solo project of Sera Timms, vocalist and bassist for Ides Of Gemini and of the now-disbanded Black Math Horseman. With a focus on rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity, BLACK MARE steps outside the collaborative dynamic to reveal a creative process that is all Sera’s own. Her songs traverse hidden realms, fragments of dreams, submerged memories, and mythical imagery. Where Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini demand volume and collusion, BLACK MARE requires quiet contemplation. If Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini seek to summon the deafening roar of inevitability, BLACK MARE delivers its verdicts on cresting waves and solemn whispers. And yet each operates, in its own way, within the darkened spheres of oceanic hypnosis.

THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA: No Clean Singing Premieres “Vengeful Flavors” Video From French Death Metal Legion; Resurrect Pre orders Available

View / Share THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA’s “Vengeful Flavors” RIGHT HERE.

Resurrect is the forthcoming second full-length from French death metal legion THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA. In advance of its release next month via Unique Leader, No Clean Singing is hosting the official premiere of the visual accompaniment to fourth cut, Vengeful Flavors, issuing, “Flames play a prominent role in the eye-catching video you’re about to see, along with vistas of smoke-belching factories and pine-shrouded mountainsides. But given the nature of the music, you might expect to see those factories battered into rubble, the mountains fragmented into gravel, and the timber scythed to the ground like stalks of wheat.”

View the Mehdi Khadouj-directed video at THIS LOCATION.

Resurrect will see release on October 13th via Unique Leader Records. Preorder bundles are available at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE where you can also hear previously released single “Dogmes Anxiogenesis.”

Said the band of the self-produced offering, “We conditioned ourselves to unleash our primal influences; it’s a back-to-the-roots process with old-school riffs tuned to a more modern sound. We are proud of this combination. Each song has its own identity. We recorded, mixed, and mastered the entire album by ourselves at our own studio, Spike Recording Studio, which allowed us to keep every step of the production process under control. This gave us the time and freedom to really develop our sound. This album imposes an ambiance with many twists and surprises and the songs structures are more mature. This is a new chapter for the band but also for the Architect, the main character of THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA‘s concept which takes place through a post-apocalyptic world. The artwork reflects THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA‘s universe and illustrates each situation our main character goes through.”

THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA was forged in 2011 in Grenoble, France. In 2012, the band unveiled its first EP Oppressive Procession, and performed nearly thirty shows throughout France alongside the likes of Betraying The Martyrs, UltraVomit, Death Mentality, Agnostic Front, Promethee, and many others. That Summer, the band was able to secure a three-week tour of Latin American with Descomunal which included a performance at Ecuador’s QuitoFest.

2013 saw the release of their Klonosphere-issued Architects Of Destruction debut. Offering a more professional production quality, the record was recorded and mixed by Mickaël Valesi at Sonovore Studio in France and mastered by Charles J. Wall (Whitechapel, King Conquer, et al) at Sonic Assault Studio in Florida. The nine-tracks comprising Architects Of Destruction reaped critical acclaim among underground critics in the know with Metal Temple writing, “This release is not merely a collection of tracks about the undead, but an account of what one may feel if lost in a zombie epidemic. The band seems well-equipped for an impending Armageddon.” Teeth Of The Divine issued, “With the energy these guys bring, and the crushing breakdowns all pulled off with precision and backed by a beefy production, this is really an impressive debut,” while Dead Rhetoric likened Architects Of Destruction to a, “sonic interpretation of a zombie onslaught.” The following year, THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA shared the stage with Suicide Silence, Six Feet Under, Napalm Death, M:Pire Of Evil, Loudblast, Benighted, and Mumakil before joining Broken Hope and Internal Bleeding on their European tour in 2015.
