ATAVISMO Desintegración

Algeciras, Spain-based experimental space rock collective, ATAVISMO, will release their Desintegración debut Via Temple Of Torturous this June. Featuring within their ranks former members of Viaje a 800 and Mind!, ATAVISMO?s compositions are sprawling and consuming; echoing and hypnotic recalling the cosmic, jam-laden plumage of  bands like Earthless, Motorpsycho, Wand and Dead Meadow. Described The Obelisk, ?Desintegración? holds a world of lush and spacious heavy psychedelia within them, alternately folkish and expansive, minimal and encompassing. It doesn?t matter whether you?ve heard any of the trio?s past work in bands like the spaced-out Mind! or Viaje a 800 so much as it matters that you?re willing to loan a piece of your psyche to ?Blazava,? ?Kraken,? ?Oceanica? and ?Meeh,? and engage the thirty-seven minutes of ATAVISMO?s debut on their own level.? The band claimed the fourth slot of the popular riff portal?s Top Ten Debut Albums Of 2014 list further praising, ?Desintegración hit me like the proverbial ton of bricks. Just four songs, but the atmosphere was gorgeous??

Desintegración Track Listing:
1. Blazava
2. Kraken
3. Oceánica
4. Meeh

ATAVISMO:
Pot – guitar, synth
Pow – drums
Matt – bass

Initially released on CD last year on Nor On Label Records, ATAVISMO?s Desintegración will be given the vinyl treatment via Temple Of Torturous on June 16, 2015 and come in a gorgeous gatefold packaging limited to 300 copies. Preorders to be available in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

EARTH: Summer Performances Including Project Pabst Presents, Necronomicon, Ellnora Guitar Festival And More Confirmed

Following their latest round of tour dates, which saw the band as a major highlight at Psycho California as well as Levitation (Austin Psych Fest), Seattle’s EARTH has scheduled several new live performances across the US for the Summer months, as the band continues to tour the planet in support of their mighty tenth album, Primitive And Deadly.

 

The latest round of EARTH live actions will lead off with a Pacific Northwest run of dates including Project Pabst Presents in Portland, Oregon on July 18th, a show in Olympia, Washington on the 19th, and a hometown Seattle performance on July 22nd. EARTH has also confirmed their return to the East Coast, based around their participation in Necronomicon Convention in Providence, Rhode Island on August 22nd, at the upcoming city-wide tribute to H.P. Lovecraft in the famed writer’s hometown. September will see EARTH taking part in this year’s installment of the massive Ellnora Guitar Festival in Urbana, Illinois. Additional live performances will be announced in the weeks ahead.

 

EARTH Live Performances:

7/18/2015 Revolution Hall – Portland, OR @ Project Pabst Presents w/ Federale [info]

7/19/2015 Obsidian – Olympia, WA w/ ManDate [info]

7/22/2015 Black Lodge – Seattle, WA w/ ManDate

8/22/2015 Columbus Theatre – Providence, RI @ Necronomicon Convention w/ Elder [info]

9/11/2015 Ellnora Guitar Festival – Urbana, IL [info]

 

Primitive And Deadly is streaming at THIS LOCATION, and is available direct through the band’s official store HERE, via iTunes HERE.

 

EARTH released their mammoth tenth studio full-length, Primitive And Deadly, through Southern Lord Recordings in September 2014, and immediately upon is release amidst massive international touring of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe and North America, became the highest-selling EARTH album to date. The New York Times reviewed Primitive And Deadly, stating, “Now, EARTH is reconciling its two moods, rugged and contemplative, and doing something it hasn’t done since 1996: hire vocalists. Mark Lanegan, once of the Seattle band Screaming Trees, appears on a few tracks, sounding like dread and survival and the white blues; when he sings, you almost feel a crust forming. But the clear-voiced Rabia Shaheen Qazi, of the younger Seattle band Rose Windows, suggests something fresher on ‘From the Zodiacal Light,’ a long song at the record’s tasty heart, essentially a series of long approaches to beautiful choruses, with dark words and uplifting chord changes.” Pitchfork’s grand critique of the album offers, “This is the closest Carlson has ever been to leading a rock band, to fully offloading his exceptional sense of control into a systemic and thorough whole… This might be the beginning of a new EARTH.” The band hit Europe on a massive five-week tour from late January through the end of February, and now continues to tour on Primitive And Deadly in the second half of the year.

THE CLEARING PATH Releases “Sacred Mountain” From Debut LP Through American Aftermath

[photo by Virginia Sarediy]

Following the recent announcing of Watershed Between Earth And Firmament, the impending debut album from Italian blackened hardcore/metal solo outfit, THE CLEARING PATH, an exclusive stream of the record’s second movement has been released through American Aftermath, with the track “Sacred Mountain.”

 

Riding between the energetic likes of metallic hardcore/punk inspired by Converge, Tragedy and His Hero Is Gone, and atmospheric/experimental black metal citing the likes of Blut Aus Nord, Enslaved and Deathspell Omega, THE CLEARING PATH was conceived in the ashes of ThySolace by sole creator, Gabriele Gramaglia. “Sacred Mountain” is the second of six conceptual movements which comprise Watershed Between Earth And Firmament, and is an prime example of the album’s crisp, organic production qualities and devastating, hard-hitting content. The track is the first single to be released from the album, which now strikes publicly through the cooperation of American Aftermath, who states that the album, “features six blistering tracks that fans of Celeste and Castevet will be enamored with,” and issues of “Sacred Mountain” specifically, “Thunderous drumming, hellacious riffs and sinister vocals are all present on this auditory kick in the teeth.”

 

Stream THE CLEARING PATH’s “Sacred Mountain” via American Aftermath at THIS LOCATION.

 

Watershed Between Earth And Firmament will see independent release on July 11th, at first digitally, with physical versions to follow. Fully written, executed, recorded and mixed by Gabriele Gramaglia, THE CLEARING PATH‘s Watershed Between Earth And Firmament is a concept album about spiritual renaissance inspired by the beauty of mountainous landscapes of the Italian Alps north of his homeland, conceived in reflection about one of the darkest periods in his life. The record stands as a turning point, in the search for the light to find the path back to normalcy, metaphorically describing a trek from the slopes of a majestic mountain to its summit in which, after many efforts and obstacles, some semblance of solace is found. Mastered by Marco Gervasio and fitted with custom artwork painted by Luca Devinu/Blessend, Watershed Between Earth And Firmament is a dense, thirty-minute release sure to catch the attention of fans of Celeste, Castevet, Krallice, Eleven As In Adversaries and the like.

BLACK TONGUE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘THE UNCONQUERABLE DARK’ Downtempo’s Torchbearers prepare to release the heaviest record of the year

BLACK TONGUE will release their new full length ‘The Unconquerable Dark’ on September 4th via Century Media Records.

‘The Unconquerable Dark’ is a devastatingly bleak record that showcases the Hull Hate Crew’s trademark Downtempo sound to absolute full effect. From the opening Doom drenched riffs of “Plague Worship” to the Black Metal tinged “L’appel du Vide”, to the unfathomably heavy “Prince Of Ash” and “Vermintide” (featuring guest vocals from SUICIDE SILENCE’s EDDIE HERMIDA), the hatred spews out of the speakers.

The lyric video for “L’appel du Vide” can be seen here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zYIPIYPBM0&feature=youtu.be

Produced by BLACK TONGUE & Jesse Kirkbride (Traitors, Demolisher), the album features artwork by Ken Sarafin (Oceano, Catalepsy).

The band had the following to say on announcing the record:

Our original mindset for ‘Falsifier’ and ‘Born Hanged’ was to create the most ridiculously crushing music around. We created the heaviest music because there just wasn’t anything around at the time that was as heavy as we wanted to hear. We feel like we did a pretty good job. Now there’s a plethora of bands that are taking the reigns of the heavy and we love it, but a new direction is in order. With The Unconquerable Dark we wanted to keep the slow, low and crushing vibe but add some maturity to it. More riffs, more memorable choruses and some juicy lead thrown in. Don’t get us wrong, this is the heaviest thing we’ve ever released (and probably that you’ve ever heard), but we took the time to give it atmosphere and structure instead of being heavy for heavy’s sake.

We spent a lot of time on this album mixing and mastering it ourselves so that we could get the closest representation of the heaviness that is in our minds. We didn’t want to let someone else’s polished and clean mix detract from the dimension-shattering sound that we strive to achieve. This is album is in our opinion the best thing we have released so far.”

‘The Unconquerable Dark’ tracklisting is as follows:

Plague Worship – 5.06
In the Wake ov the Wolf – 3.55
Young Gloom – 5.33
L’appel du Vide – 3.42
Vermintide (ft Eddie Hermida) – 6.38
Prince of Ash – 5.18
The Masquerade – 5.33
A Pale Procession ii: Death March – 4.41
I’m so Tired of Sighing. Please Lord, Let It Be Night – 5.18
Running time: 47 mins

THE UNCONQUERABLE DARK is released September 4th Worldwide via Century Media Records.

KRONOS: First Taste Of New Full-Length From French Brutal Death Metallists Now Playing

Arisen New Era is the impending new full-length from French death metal legion and recent Unique Leader signees, KRONOS. Featuring a continuous textual reference to the gods of ancient civilizations, KRONOS punctures ears with a heightened level of dynamics accomplished by only by a select number of bands. Recorded, mixed and mastered by David Potvin at Dome Studios (Lyzanxia, Arcania, Under The Abyss etc.) in (appropriately) Angers, France, the nine-track Arisen New Era is a smoldering display of technical death metal barbarity adorned in the distinctive cover art of Pierre Alain (Withering Soul, Silentlie, Cyrax etc.).

“We are extremely happy to have our upcoming new album out on Unique Leader Records,” the band issues. “This is the perfect fit for KRONOS as we are huge fans of their output from the beginning. We’re proud to be next on the list. Arisen New Era will be, without any doubt, the most successful album from the band. The riffs are more powerful, technical and melodic than anything KRONOS has written thus far. Each song has its own identity and the epic side of the band is more present than ever before and backed by a great production. We are really looking forward its release and can’t wait to play these new tracks live!”

Set to drop late next month, the ear-reapers at No Clean Singing are very pleased to deliver the first official helping of Arisen New Era for communal consumption via a lyric video for fifth movement, “Klymenos Underwrath,” noting, “‘Klymenos Underwrath’ is carnage incarnate – an overpowering onslaught of rapid-fire drum and bass propulsion matched with flurries of jolting riffs and boiling guitar solos and accompanied by a fusillade of bestial growls. And yes, it includes an exotic Eastern melody that gives the song character and that will stay with you.”

 

 

A name derived from the Greek god of time, Kronos (or Cronus), father of Zeus, KRONOS was forged over fifteen years ago in a small town in the Northeastern province of Alsace-Lorraine and quickly established a name for themselves based solely on their musical unity of harmony and violence. Following various personnel changes and musical investigation, the perpetrators of pandemonium recorded their first demo in 2000 and unleashed their self-produced Titan’s Awakening debut the following year. The recording lead to a union with French imprint Warpath Records. By the end of 2001, Titan’s Awakening was expelled once again into the world, this time with a brand new cover designed by Deather (Gurkkhas, Vital Remains, Angel Corpse) as well as a visually disquieting booklet. KRONOS later joined forces with Spanish label Xtreem Music run by Avulsed’s Dave Rotten, for the unleashing of their next two full-lengths. Second offering, Colossal Titan Strife was discharged in 2004 to the applause of underground critics in the proverbial know. Metal Crypt commended the band’s “diversified guitar work… intricate drum patterns… wicked guitar solos and.. good number of catchy yet non-compromising hooks,” further insisting, “This French outfit is definitely worth checking out,” while Sputnik Music championed, “an impressive album that shows off the capabilities of death metal done right. KRONOS managed to pack a metric ton of creativity into each song and you will barely hear the same riff twice.” Third offspring, The Hellenic Terror, emerged in April 2007 and served as an attestation of the band’s enormous capacity for skilled execution and originality. Said Metal Crypt in a near perfect review of the release, “KRONOS is one of the few death metal bands that manage to be melodic, brutal and still remain catchy as hell in their riffs and solos. This is definitely a must-have for fans of death metal.”

SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST: Location Of Mid-Atlantic Open-Air Camping And Metal Fest Moves To White Hall, Maryland

The inaugural September installation of SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST, the new mid-Atlantic, open-air, camping-based metal fest, has moved slightly Southeast, from its initial placement in Southern Pennsylvania to White Hall, in Harford County, Maryland.

 

Set to take place September 25th – 27th, 2015, the new location of SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST is similar to the previous site, with deep woods, cabins and tent camping fields, yet is slightly closer to both Baltimore and Philadelphia, making it even more accessible to East Coast metallers planning on attending the diverse three-day festival. The more intimate setup of the new camp is equipped with several cabins, modern plumbing bathrooms, a professional kitchen, a lodge building, and access to a river, as well as an indoor stage.

 

Since initial announcements, Menace Ruine dropped from the lineup and was replaced by Black Table, yet the remainder of the SHADOW WOODS METAL FESTlineup remains the same, including lead performances from Midnight, Falls of Rauros, Occultation, Velnias, Iron Man, Anagnorisis, The Flight of Sleipnir and Stone Breath, along with twenty-six additional acts. The fest is also likely to be the first live performance for the surviving members of Wormreich since their tragic vehicle crash in April. The gathering showcases underground black, doom, death, and noise and experimental metal bands on two alternating stages all day Friday and Saturday. Camping and workshops on topics such as runes, guitar maintenance, yoga and more will be offered and are included in the ticket price. Artists and record labels will be vending alongside several onsite food stands.

 

There will be ZERO ticket sales at the gate for SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST — advance presales to those 21 years of age and older is the only way into the fest, and is still BYOB. Cabin beds are now included in the ticket price but are limited to first-come first-served. There is a list you can sign up on mentioned in the private group. There are only 350 tickets in total, and half of those tickets have been sold.

 

Additionally, the SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST website has been redesigned to include a store — including a new poster for the event designed by Fred Grabosky of Sadgiqacea. — as well as the newly-launched Shadow Woods Radio, showcasing artists set to perform at the festival. Check it all out RIGHT HERE.

RISING: Danish Metal Outfit Announces New Lineup; Recording Of Third Album Confirmed For This Fall

Danish metal combo, RISING, has reformed with a new full-time studio and live lineup, and will return to the scene in 2015 with new live performances and the recording of their third LP.

 

Since the band’s formation in 2008 and the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2009, RISING has been an incredibly promising and uncompromising act on the metal scene, both locally and internationally. After two DIY EPs, the band displayed their relentless, crushing sound, fierce musicianship and a strong sense for melody and songwriting on two full-length albums, To Solemn Ash (2011) and Abominor (2013). RISING backed the initial EPs and the debut album with several tours in Denmark and mainland Europe along with festival appearances such as Roskilde, Copenhell and Hultsfred. Yet, as momentum was building, so was also tension within the band and just after the recording of Abominor, the trio disbanded, leaving the future of RISING and the new album uncertain. Abominor subsequently saw its release on guitarist Jacob Krogholt’s newly founded label Indisciplinarian, but no shows we’re played in connection with the release.

 

Unwillingly seeing the band dissolved, main composer Krogholt quickly teamed up with original drummer Martin Niemann, a member between 2008 and 2010, with the intention of carrying on the band, if the original chemistry of the two founding members remained intact. The initial jams in the fall of 2013 proved that the spark was indeed present and over the next year and a half the duo wrote a wide variety of material, which was to be the backbone of the next album. Along the way, several musicians were tried out, but first in December 2014 new members started to enter the band. Now, after two years of writing, demoing and trying out new musicians for the band, the new RISING lineup is finally complete.

 

RISING anno 2015:

Morten Grønnegaard – Vocals

Jacob Krogholt – Guitars

Carl Peter – Guitars

Bjarke Lassen – Bass

Martin Niemann – Drums

 

RISING has written eleven new songs planned for the band’s third album, which is to be recorded in August with producer Jacob Bredahl (By The Patient, The Kandidate, etc.) at his Dead Rat Studios in Aarhus, Denmark. The album will be mixed by notable American metal producer Sanford Parker (Woven Hand, Minsk, Indian, etc.) and mastered by the Brad Boatright (Sleep, Nails, Beastmilk) at Audiosiege.

 

The new material is undeniably RISING‘s core sound, filled with the crushing heaviness and melodic sensibilities inherited in Jacob Krogholt’s riffing and songwriting fiercely pushed onwards by Martin Niemann’s aggressive and dynamic drumming, yet fresh sonic elements are introduced by the new members of the band. Firstly, the most notable change to the sound is new lead singer Morten Grønnegaard and his melodic, yet still raw and powerful approach, handing the band and the forthcoming album a broader appeal and a more diverse expression. Carl Peter’s entrance as guitarist marks an expansion of the RISING sound, adding strength, more textures and classic twin guitar work, and along with Bjarke Lassen’s organic and heavy bass work, RISING of today is a band with an intact crushing energy, but with bigger variation and dynamics.

 

RISING‘s as-yet-untitled third album is expected to be released in the spring of 2016, backed by touring in Denmark and abroad. As for now, the band is hard at work finalizing the album pre-production, and is planning a few Danish comeback shows in November after the album recordings, which will mark the first live appearances from the band in two-and-a-half years.

 

Instrumental demo excerpts of several new RISING songs can be streamed throughout June RIGHT HERE.

 

In the US, Earsplit Distro is exclusively carrying RISING’s Abominor LP HERE, and also carries the To Solemn Ash LP HERE and CD HERE. RISING’s full line of merch and releases can be ordered internationally via the Indisciplinarian webshop HERE.

C H R I S T: MontréalPost-Hardcore Instrumentalists Streaming Entire Debut LP At Noisey; T O W E R Out Now Through L’Oeil Du Tigre

As Montréal-based DIY label, L’oeil Du Tigre, releases C H R I S T‘s debut LP, T O W E R, this week, Noisey is now streaming the entire album.

 

Letting their mesmerizing, mournful structures and demoralizing amplification do their talking, C H R I S T delivers their works virtually void of vocals on their dense but expansive T O W E R debut. Surging with a visceral and fully immersive, nearly forty-two minute excursion through the outer boundaries of ethereal post-hardcore/rock. The members of C H R I S T hold deep roots in the Quebec scene, veterans of a range of bands currently or previously holding collective rank in Ire, The Black Hand, Complications, Cobra Noir, Sed Non Satiata, Near Grey and more, yet T O W E R offers a fresh, wholly different sound than any of their other projects. As the LP sees release via L’Oeil Du Tigre, Vice Magazine’s music channel, Noisey, is now streaming T O W E R in its entirety, stating in part, “The album is able to deliver sections and parts that show the expansive nature of the band, chords soar and expand over large swaths of dissonance… It’s a kind of post-rock that goes into sinister and dark territory, a place in which most bands in the same genre aren’t able to tread as successfully. Throughout the record’s four compositions, C H R I S T swims deep into every sea of texture, a body of moods.”

 

Investigate the expanses of T O W E R from C H R I S T at Noisey now at THIS LOCATION.

 

Also view a brief trailer for the LP HERE. Orders for T O W E R on vinyl can be placed HERE and digital orders HERE.

 

Having just performed the new material live at a record release show for T O W E R in their hometown, with Jessica Moss and Big | Brave, C H R I S T will be supporting Cult Of Luna on their upcoming tour, with more live actions to be announced in the coming days.

 

Founded by guitarists Patrick Fontaine (Ire, The Black Hand, Complications) and Maxime Jenniss (Cobra Noir), who later recruited Charles Marty (Sed Non Satiata) and Kevin Bartczak (Near Grey), C H R I S T is a far more restrained and contemplative endeavor than what would be safe to assume when looking at the band’s pedigree. Combining a sparse and almost virtuously patient approach to percussion with lush walls of harmonic drop-tuned textures, the band creates intimate and enthralling soundscapes. The band’s debut recording is now delivered in T O W E R, captured at Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango in Montréal by Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mount Zion Memorial Orchestra), with additional recordings by Bunny Bartczak at HLR Grover. Mixed by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (The Black Hand, Ire, Jerusalem In My Heart) and Amar and mastered by Harris Newman at Grey Market, the LP’s cover art was created from photos by Anouk Lessard, edited by Claude Lafrance, and designed by Maxime Jenniss. Comprised of four mostly instrumental songs which offer more than a few surprises as they bloom, T O W E R is an otherworldly documentation of well-crafted audio artistry fit for fans of Earth, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Lae, Mogwai, This Will Destroy You and Crippled Black Phoenix.

TEMPLE OF DAGON: Revelations Of The Spirit EP Out TODAY + Streaming In Full At No Clean Singing; Live Assaults Loom

Revelations Of The Spirit is the latest EP from West Coast crust metal malefactors, TEMPLE OF DAGON. Officially available for public destruction TODAY, the Lovecraftian-inspired, four-track mauler is currently streaming in its vicious entirety at No Clean Singing.

 

Rich, contemptuous and incessantly illuminating, Revelations Of The Spirit is a veritable soundtrack to self-loathing, self-reflection, self-acceptance and self-love loosely based around the life and times of central character, the Horrid King. Tracked by Alex Estrada (Xibalba, Touche Amore, Silver Snakes etc.) at Earth Capital Studios in Los Angeles, California and mastered by Dan Randall (Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan, Fucked Up etc.) at Mammoth Sound in Alameda, California, Revelations Of The Spirit is a pure, honest and perpetually menacing manifestation of audio punishment. Cvlt Nation hails the band’s “caustic fury,” and, “apocalyptic riffs dipped in the blood of our downpressors.” Rock! Shock! Pop! agrees, “With only four songs, this one does its job… It’s raw without sounding bad (in fact the production is rock solid) and is interesting, creative, intense and heavy all at the same time. Definitely worth checking out.” Massive Movement rallies, “This is the sound of celestial destruction made flesh… I can’t get enough of, and can’t stop playing, this glorious record,” while Metal Junkie adds accurately and eloquently, “Solid as a good, hard fuck, TEMPLE OF DAGON‘s four track EP will definitely leave you walking funny.”

 

Trailing teasers from Invisible Oranges and Cvlt Nation, today No Clean Singing offers up Revelations Of The Spirit in full calling the offering, “one of the heaviest and most electrifying things I’ve heard all year. The riffs are massive. The guitar leads are infectious. The bass lines are pavement-cracking. The drum blows are spine-shaking. The vocals are raw and ravenous. The music is both savage and scintillating, fusing elements from a variety of genres, from crust/punk to thrash to concussive Bolt Thrower-style death metal. It’s a paragon of head-wrecking metal.”

 

Hear Revelations Of The Spirit, courtesy of No Clean Singing, at THIS LOCATION.

 

Following a special record release show this past weekend, TEMPLE OF DAGON will pillage their way through eleven cities later this month waging their diseased psalms upon Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, New Orleans, Austin and Phoenix as well as Cruststock 2015 in Anaheim with additional live trauma to be announced soon.

Influenced by ’90s-era crust, stenchcore, death metal, thrash, and Lovecraftian lore, TEMPLE OF DAGON was forged in 2009 and quickly reaped an underground following with the release of their clobbering Book Of Azathoth EP. The band later went on to record and self-release their 2010 debut, Rituals Of The Deep. Further blending their crust, punk, thrash, and death metal roots with a heavy dose of d-beat and blasts, the record earned further adulation from hordes in the know.

 

Revelations Of The Spirit is out TODAY digitally and on 10″ vinyl via Black Voodoo Records. For physical orders visit THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE.

HEART OF A COWARD premiere new video for “Hollow” via Century Media YouTube

UK metal act HEART OF A COWARD have just completed a new video for their song “Hollow.” Jamie, lead singer, had this to say about the video:

“Hollow is the opener for the new record and the shortest, sharpest statement of intent we could make before the Summer starts and we prepare to unleash this beast of an album onto everyone.

There’s a little more pace in this song than people will be used to hearing from us…safe to say that’s something that’s stuck across this new record. We cannot wait to show everyone what we’ve been cooking up.”

Check it out on the Century Media YouTube channel:

THE OXFORD COMA: Arizona Psyche Metal Trio Issues Release Info For Impending Second Album With New Title And Artwork

In the wake of the recent announcement of their impending second full-length coming together for release this Summer, Phoenix, Arizona’s metal experimentalist trio, THE OXFORD COMA, has just re-drafted their latest works with a new title and new cover artwork, and has issued all of the newly confirmed info alongside the album’s track listing and release date.

 

Initially dubbed The Pulls, a recent change of direction has forged a new cover layout and title for the album, which is now called, Paris Is Mine. Through several lineup alterations and sporadic expansions, the usual three-piece bass, guitar and drums lineup of THE OXFORD COMA at times radically expands for live shows to include a second drummer, and for the first time on record, this time the tactic was applied in the studio setting. Utilizing both a former and current percussionist, and continuing their self-described recording “de-evolution” — continuing to opt for rawer, live, DIY productions with each release — through several sessions, ended up with their most corrosive and unreserved material to date. Bent on combining the weirdness and freshness of improvisation with the intensity and honesty of good metal and the lasting impact of innovative rock, the new album was produced with minimal production, the vocals all in one take in order to preserve a natural feel. Recorded, engineered, mixed, mastered by Jalipaz at Audioconfusion in Mesa, Arizona, Paris Is Mine delivers forty minutes of exploratory thunder as perplexing as it is enthralling, even closing out with an improvised jam and a drop-tuned cover of Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks.”

 

Paris Is Mine will be independently released digitally on August 11th, with a limited physical format to follow. Stand by for additional info from the record, audio samples, an official video, tour dates and more to be released throughout the weeks ahead. For now the cover layout and track listing has been issued.

 

Paris Is Mine Track Listing:

1. Canadian Questionmark

2. Ritaling

3. Daisies

4. The Pulls

5. Ados Watts Jam

6. When The Levee Breaks

 

From the scorching Southwestern US underground music scene comes the indefinable works of THE OXFORD COMA, an outfit which rides the fine line between rock and metal, experimental and straightforward, and even being a trio or quartet, and which has steadily pumped out a hearty discography of independent releases since their 2011 inception. Powered and endorsed by Orange amps, and drawing from a wide array of influences from across the spectrum of forward-thinking rock artists, bridging the early days and modern times, comparisons to the improvisational prog rock circles of the 1960s and ’70s to premier extreme acts of the 1990s through today, the collective recorded output of this morphing act has drawn similarities to everything from early Tool to Primus, Radiohead to The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nirvana to Neurosis, King Crimson to Kyuss, and so on.

HELLBASTARD: Iconic UK Crust Metal Crossover Unit To Drop New Full-Length Via PATAC Records This July; Video Unveiled

Iconic UK crust metal crossover unit, HELLBASTARD, will unleash the perilous fruits of Feral, their forthcoming new full-length, this July via PATAC Records.

 

Think you know HELLBASTARD? You know nothing, as Feral has just rewritten the band in vivid shades of scarlet and gold. The tranquil intro piece, “In Praise Of Bast,” featuring the keyboard skills of Andy “A-. Droid” Wiggins (ex-Amebix), lulls the listener into a deliciously false sense of security, because seconds after its final note fades into memory, the album’s title track hurtles in with all the subtlety of a muddy jack boot to the head, HELLBASTARD‘s patented metallic riffage in full effect, Scruff howling, “My father was a wolf… my mother was a witch…!

 

It becomes immediately apparent that this is unlike any other modern crossover album. This is primal, back-to-nature shit; a tsunami of raw emotion made sound that demands everything of the listener, no half measures. Not ever. You have to give yourself to the flow completely, or not at all, but the reward for such fearless trust in others is great indeed. An adrenaline shot of pure punk energy, for starters, all filtered through with some of thrash metal’s intricacies – but thankfully none of its overblown ego. And there is melody to be had here too, but you have to dig deep, claw through the wreckage and get your hands bloodied; subtle harmonies in the guitar interplays and peaceful interludes where you can rest a while between the harrowing heaviness of most of the material. Because honesty is always harrowing, isn’t it? And this is so honest, so utterly uncompromising in its pure existentialism, it will shake you to your core. As the album title suggests, this is a force of nature that refuses to be tamed, and will sweep everything before it asunder, rending it apart with its violent rhythmic contortions. A social hand grenade jammed in your teeth, literally blowing your skull apart with endless possibilities.

 

As well as A. Droid’s tinkering of the ivories, HELLBASTARD‘s Feral also includes guest appearances from Rob “The Baron” Miller (also ex-Amebix… indeed, the love of all things Amebix permeates every note and beat of this album) on “Wychcraft” and Mr. Heavy Metal himself, Andy Sneap (ex-Sabbat/Hell) on “And The Point Of Your Being Is….?” But Feral is not about individual performances, or indeed individual songs. It’s about reconnecting with that vital spark in your soul that has been dulled by the technological trappings of modern society. It’s a journey back to the earth, back to yourself, a metallic liturgy to personal freedom and self-expression, a call to the wild that cannot be ignored. Immerse yourself in the chaos and be reborn. — Iann Glasper/Terrorizer

 

Check out the Feral track teaser along with the official video for “We Are Coven” currently streaming at Decibel at THIS LOCATION.

 

Feral Track Listing:

1. In Praise Of Bast – Feral (featuring Andy “A. Droid” Wiggins)

2. Outsider Of The Year

3. We Are Coven

   A. …For All Crippled Woods

   B. …I Spit You Poison

   C….Let Them Blast Their Brains

4. Shame On Us

5. And The Point Of Your Being Is…? (featuring Andy Sneap)

6. Wychcraft (featuring Rob “The Barron” Miller)

7. Social Hand Grenade

8. 4-Paws

9. Engineering Human Consciousness… II

10. All Our Sorrows

 

Formed in 1985 in the North East of England in the midst of Thatcherism, HELLBASTARD set out to play what they wanted to listen to themselves…. too “metal” for the punks and too “punk” for the metallers the band went on hiatus in 1992 before officially reuniting in 2008 and continue to bring a relevant lyric and sound to counteract against, mediocre sub-standard radio friendly, safety-rock.

 

Feral was tracked at the prestigious Hellfire Recording Studios (Slayer, Motörhead, Orange Goblin, Napalm Death etc.) in Derbyshire, engineered, recorded, produced and mixed by Ajeet Gill (Warlock UK, Slab, I Am Colossus, etc) and will be officially unleashed worldwide on July 17th 2015 on CD and digitally via PATAC Records with exclusive distribution by Independent Label Distribution. The first CD pressing will include a bonus track (not available on digital download or the upcoming 2016 vinyl edition) as well as an eight-page booklet and embossed digipack packaging.

 

“As ever, the legendary punk-thrashers, led by founder-member guitarist/vocalist Scruff, have poured into this album a massive amount of passion, sadness, anger and sincerity: the work sways from incandescent, bone-crushing, proper (and I mean proper – proper – proper!) thrash to heart-breaking, bleak ambience magnificence…” – 3rdEye.com

VIRGIN STEELE Premiere New Song “Queen of the Dead” Via Invisible Oranges

New Album Nocturnes of Hellfire & DamnationOut June 23rd in

North America on SPV/Steamhammer

VIRGIN STEELE will release their new album this June 23rd via SPV/Steamhammer. The title of the album is Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation and the album will have three different versions of the cover art.

Today Invisible Oranges is hosting an exclusive premiere of another new song from Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation. Get a first listen to the track “Queen of the Dead” HERE.

The band has released a lyric video for the song “Lucifer’s Hammer” which can be viewed HERE.

Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation can be pre-ordered on Amazon and iTunes.

Front man David Defeis speaks on the new album:

Our new album which is called Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation, is not a concept album per se, but there is a through line that connects the tracks. The lyrics essentially deal with relationship issues and by that I mean…. the connections between entities…. as in all sorts of beings, not only human beings…but also Gods & Goddesses, Spirits, Elements, or whatever, plus various creatures, animal, vegetable and or mineral, but largely the album is about connections between people. People and their belief systems, people and their Gods or Goddesses…people and their life philosophies and also the various substances we invest or inject into our daily or nightly rituals and our worldview, and all the complexities of what drives us, makes us who we are and takes us where we may…or may not be going. To sum it up this album is about…. all the various ways in which humans can entangle themselves, or destroy themselves…so the album’s title essentially encompasses what the vibe of the whole Work is about. The title relates to the album in the way that the title “NOBLE SAVAGE”, or “AGE OF CONSENT”, expressed each of those particular Works. The title provides a framework and connective tissue, but each song is really its own thing.

TEMPLE OF DAGON – Revelations Of The Spirit

California crust conjurors, TEMPLE OF DAGON, will release Revelations Of The Spirit this June via Black Voodoo Records. Captured by Alex Estrada (Xibalba, Touche Amore, Silver Snakes et al) at Earth Capital Studios in Los Angeles, California and mastered by Dan Randall (Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan, Fucked Up et al) at Mammoth Sound in Alameda, California, the four-track EP is a pure and menacing manifestation of audio punishment based on the life and times of central character, the Horrid King. A soundtrack to self-loathing, self-reflection, self-acceptance and self-love, Revelations Of The Spirit is a cleansing of sorts ? rich, scathing and continually illuminating.
Revelations Of The Spirit Track Listing:

1. The Evocation

2. The Horrid King

3. The Wandering Spirit

4. Nexus Of Reality

 

Influenced by ’90s-era crust, stenchcore, death metal, thrash, and Lovecraftian lore, TEMPLE OF DAGON was forged in 2009 and quickly reaped an underground following with the release of their clobbering Book Of Azathoth EP. Following a glut of shows and various personnel changes, the band went on to record and self-released their 2010 debut, Rituals Of The Deep. Further blending their crust, punk, thrash, and death metal roots with a heavy dose of d-beat and blasts, the record earned further adulation from hordes in the know with Thrash Head commending the band’s, “pure fucking brutality,” further offering, “this is not only energetic and angry, but even aesthetically melodic with bridging riffs in all the right places! And the vocal dueling going down is heavy, aggressive protestation…This is truly sick!” Added The Bonesaw who named TEMPLE OF DAGON Band Of The Week, “A band whose lyrics are centered around H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of terror, TEMPLE OF DAGON unleashes a unique breed of metal blending death metal, thrash metal, doom, crust punk and New York influenced hardcore grooves.” 2015 finds the band at their most volatile. Having shared stages with the likes of Eyehategod, Hellshock, Doom, Hellbastard and so many others, boasting their most solid lineup to date and a drive unmatched by their peers, Revelations Of The Spirit is wholly scathing in sound, mind and spirit.
Revelations Of The Spirit will be unleashed on June 9th, 2015 digitally and on 10″ vinyl via Black Voodoo Records with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks.
In conjunction with the release, TEMPLE OF DAGON will raze the stages of a dozen cities beginning with an official record release show on June 6th. The following week the band will bring their diseased psalms to Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, New Orleans, Austin and Phoenix as well as Cruststock 2015 in Anaheim with additional live trauma to be announced soon.

Likening themselves to Earth Crisis if they ?smoked weed and listened to Spazz,? the Smokeland, California-based trio, CONNOISSEUR, deafens the weak with an upbeat/d-beat barrage of West Bay powerviolence packed with resin-coated sludgedowns and chronically brutal, comically cheeba-charged vocal onslaughts that consume the listener in a violently stoned, inescapable haze.
Stoner Justice will see release on CD, LP (on rad splatter vinyl) and digitally via Tankcrimes on June 9th, 2015. For preorder bundles scroll on over to THIS LOCATION.

C H R I S T T O W E R L’Oeil Du Tigre Release: 8 June 2015

From within the vast expanses of Montréal?s arts underworld comes C H R I S T, as the outfit prepares their debut LP, T O W E R for release this Summer via L?Oeil Du Tigre.

While this band itself may be a new name to the scene, the members of C H R I S T hold deep roots in the Quebec scene, veterans of a range of bands currently or previously holding collective rank in Ire, The Black Hand, Complications, Cobra Noir, Sed Non Satiata, Near Grey and more, who here culminate their talents to deliver an emotive display of largely instrumental, fully immersive, ethereal post-hardcore/rock.

Founded by guitarists Patrick Fontaine (Ire, The Black Hand, Complications) and Maxime Jenniss (Cobra Noir), who later recruited Charles Marty (Sed Non Satiata) and Kevin Bartczak (Near Grey), C H R I S T is a far more restrained and contemplative endeavor than what would be safe to assume when looking at the band?s pedigree. Combining a sparse and almost virtuously patient approach to percussion with lush walls of harmonic drop-tuned textures, the band creates intimate and enthralling soundscapes.

C H R I S T recently completed an intense recording session at Thee Mighty Hotel2Tango in Montréal, which is now set to emerge as T O W E R, the band?s sprawling debut LP excursion. The album was recorded by Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mount Zion Memorial Orchestra) at Hotel2Tango, with additional recordings by Bunny Bartczak at HLR Grover. It was mixed by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and Thierry Amar at Hotel2Tango and mastered by Harris Newman at Grey Market, its artwork created from photos by Anouk Lessard, edited by Claude Lafrance, and designed by Maxime Jenniss. Comprised of four mostly instrumental songs which offer more than a few surprises as they bloom, T O W E R is an otherworldly documentation of well-crafted audio artistry fit for fans of Earth, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Lae, Mogwai, This Will Destroy You and Crippled Black Phoenix.

T O W E R will be released by the Montreal-based DIY label, L?oeil Du Tigre on 12? vinyl and digital formats on June 8th 2015.

Don?t let the glacially meditative nature of the band?s output fool you, because their live shows are an entirely different experience. Working tirelessly since their live debut with Acid Mothers Temple in May 2014, C H R I S T has since been sharing the stage with like-minded outfits such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Set And Setting. The band has scheduled a record launch show on June 8th, in Montreal. They?re also about to support Cult Of Luna for their first trek in North America later this year.

IN DEFENCE To Release Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master Album; “Tacos Til Death” Now Playing At New Noise Magazine

Minneapolis, Minnesota mosh instigators, IN DEFENCE,will independently unleash their face-displacing fourth full-length, Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master, later this month, and today the act wages war on the pizza industry with an exclusive premiere of “Tacos Til Death” via New Noise Magazine.

 

Proclaims the unruly IN DEFENCE mob to the triangle-consuming slaves of America, “This song is a declaration of war against the pizza loving industry, and their efforts to brainwash the masses into buying that abomination that they still have the audacity to call ‘food’ will no longer be tolerated. For far too long the Taco has been belittled and under-represented. This will go on no longer. Today is our day. We are legion. Tacos Till Death.” The featured track runs alongside a gnarly tour diary of the band’s Southeastern US tour earlier this year.

 

As the salsa drips from your raised, bleeding fist, deploy IN DEFENCE’s “Tacos Til Death” via New Noise Magazine at THIS LOCATION.

 

Early in the year the band also leaked the album-opening Unholy Water” through Noisey RIGHT HERE.

 

Jamming eleven rapid, jaw-clenching audio attacks into their latest release, IN DEFENCE delivers their most damaging degeneracy to date on Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master. Recorded, engineered and mastered by Adam Tucker at Signaturetone Studios, and mixed by Joel Grind at Audiosiege, the Twin Cities terrors bring their most outwardly tongue-in-cheek lyrical lashings and hyperspeed riff-bashings to date to the plate on their newest monstrosity. Appropriately lunatic cover art by Andrei Bouzikov overtakes the cover of this new brutalizer, which will see release directly through the band on CD and digital outlets on June 16th. Preorders for the record are live at RIGHT HERE.

 

Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master Track Listing:

1. Unholy Water

2. Tacos Til Death

3. Guns Don’t Belong In Schools, Swords Do!

4. Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master

5. No One Survives The Death Pit

6. A.D.H.D.T.V.

7. Fun With Beer (Projectile Partying)

8. Grill And Be Grilled

9. Amber Waves Of Lame

10. Refrigerator: The Energy Efficient Household Appliance That Eats People

11. Circle Pit The Casket

 

Following their Southeastern US tour earlier this year, and a hometown record release show for Don’t Fuck With The Dungeon Master in recent days, IN DEFENCE is booking new live excursions for the second half of 2015. Already confirmed to take part in the upcoming Full Terror Assault Fest in Cave-In Rock, Illinois September 10th – 12th with the likes of Napalm Death, Obituary, Terrorizer, Eyehategod and more, the band is working on locking down a West Coast tour in August, a European tour in September and October, and a trek to Japan and Australia in November. Stand by for updates on the impending worldwide invasion of this crew’s unstoppable live madness!

 

IN DEFENCE Live Actions:

9/10-12/2015 Full Terror Assault Fest – Cave-In Rock, IL w/ Napalm Death, Obituary, Terrorizer, Eyehategod

 

IN DEFENCE has proven themselves as a diehard annihilation squad, with an imposing recording resume and untamable fascination with on-stage mayhem. Having formed as a more straightforward hardcore act in 2006, the quartet’s volatile brew quickly decayed into more of a thrash-inspired crossover attack, the sound they’ve dominated in the studio and live ever since. While steadily pushing for positive societal change and unity, their methodology is heavily party and satire-infiltrated versus taking a preacher’s stance with their views. Bringing together headbangers and punks to circle pit in unity, IN DEFENCE has crossed the US multiple times a year, having toured and/or shared the stage with The Casualties, Toxic Holocaust, MDC, DRI, Cro-Mags, Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, Danzig, Municipal Waste among countless others, in addition to having toured in Puerto Rico and fourteen countries in Europe.

CHILD BITE Unleashes “Mongoloid Obsession” Video Featuring A Cameo By Philip H. Anselmo At Metal Injection Band To Kick Off Dates With Coliseum Tonight + July Tour With Superjoint Confirmed

In celebration of their tour kick off with Coliseum tonight, Detroit punk/metal/noise rock oddballs, CHILD BITE, are pleased to unleash a brand new video for “Mongoloid Obsession.” The tune comes by way of the band’s pillaging Strange Waste EP, released last year via Housecore Records.

 

Written and directed by the band during their recent studio sessions at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair and self-described as a “lo-if slab of Ed Wood-meets-John Waters bafoonery,” “Mongoloid Obsession” features a cameo appearance by Philip H. Anselmo and finds CHILD BITE at their most bizarre. Elaborates Metal Injection, “It’s a really, jarringly fucking strange track that sits somewhere between a scary Dead Kennedys song and what would happen if bands like Dead Again and Trap them joined The Residents.”

 

Check out “Mongoloid Obsession,” now playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.

 

And if you missed it, peep the band’s video for “Ancestral Ooze.” Written and directed by ex-Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Jeff Tuttle and featuring the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne, the clip is a tribute to the 1987 underground horror flick Street Trash and is still rocking Decibel at THIS LOCATION.

 

Titled Negative Noise, CHILD BITE‘s impending new full-length was recorded by Anselmo and will be released later this year via Housecore Records. In the meantime, CHILD BITE will bring their audio abrasions to the streets again supporting Kentucky’s Coliseum for a nine-date run of East Coast demolitions set to commence this evening in Louisville. From there, the band will make their way back to their home turf with a short run of Canadian dates and take a brief laundry day breather before heading back out with metal icons, Superjoint. The It Takes Guts Tour will run from July 10th through July 25th and includes additional support from labelmates, King Parrot.

 

Comments the band, “Us CHILD BITE fellas are honored as fuck to get the opening slot on the Superjoint tour. Phil has been championing us now for a couple years, since we did that Anal Cunt tribute together. He’s a sweet, gentle little angel once you get past the rippling muscles and head tattoos. To head out on tour with one of his bands, as well as everybody’s favorite aborigines-gone-grindcore act, King Parrot, sounds like a great way to spend this July. We just got the A/C fixed in our van, so we have that going for us too.”

“…the soundtrack to the greatest psychotic slasher film that never was…” — American Aftermath

 

“…one awesomely strange slice of loud rock that is sure to thrill fans who lurk on the outskirts of the scene.” – Verbicide

 

CHILD BITE‘s music smashes into you, as fast as a freight train and just as heavy. The guitars are a blistering blur of nimble and gnarly tones, with the rhythm section’s raucous grooves propelling a raspy, yowling vocalist’s emphatically motor-mouthed lyrics…” – Detroit Free Press

 

“Knight’s voice is what I image one would get by throwing the vocals of Mike Patton, Jello Biafra, Joe McTighe, David Yow and Dave Brockie into a furnace to mix together and pour out as a flowing molten blend. Strange Waste is one of those rare albums that is ridiculously good from start to finish.” – The Examiner

[photo by Dean Karr]

EYEHATEGOD will kick off another European leg of their Staggering Backward live takeover. Slated to commence tomorrow, June 6th, 2015, the band will deafen ears through nearly two-dozen venues and thirteen countries beginning in Siegen, Germany at Freak Valley Festival 2015 alongside Earthless, Electric Moon and many more. The tour also includes a stop at Hellfest in Clisson, France with Superjoint, Saint Vitus, Life Of Agony, Weedeater etc. as well as In Flammen Open Air in Torgau, Germany with Bömbers, Vader, Darkened Nocturn Slaugthercult, Terrorizer LA and others.

The latest stretch of live demolitions follow EYEHATEGOD’s US mini tour last month which included a punishing performance at Psycho California and the band’s recent Big Easy Entertainment Award win in the category of Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

Comments frontman Mike IX Williams, “After multiple nominations throughout the past years; EYEHATEGOD have won the local Big Easy Awards for best New Orleans Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band in this god forbidden city that care has obviously forgotten.”

EYEHATEGOD continues to quake stages in support of their Housecore Records-released self-titled LP which inundated the masses in 2014, breaking the band’s decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release in the band’s twenty-five-year lineage. Having helped define the NOLA sound with their signature down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the tormented screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section, EYEHATEGOD reemerged stronger and more determined than ever before. EyeHateGod personifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the “N’awlins” sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity.

GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville Cover Art Creation Feature Hosted By Gear Gods; East Coast Tour Info Revealed

 
 

Nearing release this Summer is Endsville, the double-12″ vinyl EP release with Austin, Texas-based DESTROYER OF LIGHT and Tucson, Arizona/Vancouver, Washington-based GODHUNTER, a collection of brand new end-time material from both acts. The intense Endsville will see a cooperative release between the two bands, and the time invested into the creation of the record’s artwork is as impressive as the culminated audio material, which is now made apparent through a visual trailer which includes the first audio from the release, and is now playing alongside a photo breakdown of the creation of the installation via Gear Gods.

 

Collectively issues GODHUNTER on the new art installation feature, “The artwork for Endsville was done by Rudy Flores and Teresa Estrella of Bestia Dentro. Rudy had previously done work for GODHUNTER, drawing the covers for Wolves and City Of Dust. When we were in the process of writing for Endsville, we approached Rudy about taking the art for the cover of the next album to the ‘next level.’ We just weren’t sure what that level was yet. We did know that we wanted to sculpt something and use LED lighting for effects. Once we settled on Endsville being a split album with DESTROYER OF LIGHT, the monster battle theme immediately sprang to life and the Bestia Dentro team got started creating the two monsters and the set. All told the process took about six months from start to finish, and they ended up renting an art space entirely for that project, as the set took up about an 8’x10′ area. Once the set layout and monsters were complete, we called in Andrew Weiss to photograph it. He’s done work for bands like Pelican, Rosetta and Caspian before, and his eye is incredible. We worked with the lights a bit on the day of the shoot to get the right look, and Andrew got a couple really good captures that became the cover and inside art for the vinyl layout.”

 

Watch painstakingly layered Endsville installation come together via Gear Gods RIGHT HERE.

 

Brand new videos from both acts will see release in the coming days as GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville sees a joint release through GODHUNTER co-owned Battleground Records and DESTROYER OF LIGHT‘s Heavy Friends Records on July 28th. Preorders will go live on June 16th.

 

Directly in conjunction with the release of Endsville, GODHUNTER and DESTROYER OF LIGHT will collaborate on a major widespread tour together, which will see them both raiding the East Coast US for the first time. While previously only the rough skeletal city itinerary of the trek has been announced, this week nearly every one of the twenty-five venues on the tour has been declared. The tour includes both bands’ participation in the first Death To False Metal Festival in Hamden, Connecticut on August 14th and 15th with Whiplash, Krieg, Secrets Of The Sky, Valkyrie, Imperial Triumphant, Nightbitch, Immortal Bird, Secret Cutter and more.

GODHUNTER vs. DESTROYER OF LIGHT: Endsville bears twenty minutes of new material and a cover track from each band. Tucson/Vancouver-situated sludge faction, GODHUNTER, captured the tunes for their platter at WaveLab Studios in Tucson by Dana Fehr (North, Juarez), the newest in a steady line of titles since their 2014-released debut LP, City Of Dust, including their GH/OST:S split LP with Secrets Of The Sky and The Outer Dark collaborative 7″ with Amigo The Devil. The adjoining slab by Austin-based psychedelic doom outfit, DESTROYER OF LIGHT, follows the band’s 2012-released self-titled debut album and 2014’s Bizarre Tales Vol. II EP, recorded at Orb Recording Studios in Austin, engineered and mixed by Matt Meli. The entire album was then mastered by James Plotkin. The two 12″ EPs will be united in a gatefold setup on two different colors of vinyl, in addition to a digital release, the cover artwork to feature custom sculpture art by Bestia Dentro and photography by Andrew Weiss.
