New Hampshire metallers Vattnet have shortened their name from Vattnet Viskar and have released a new song entitled “Dark Black” via Brooklynvegan.

The band has signed with New Damage Records, which will release the band’s upcoming full-length worldwide. Check back with Metal Riot as album details will be announced shortly.

Bassist Casey Aylward says:

“This is definitely the first riff that kicked off the record and solidified the direction that we knew we wanted to aim for going forward. As for lyrics, it’s about people in your life that consistently let you down, the people around them down, and of course themselves down. There’s a point where there is really no helping them because you realize that ultimately their freedom of choice will supersede anything you could do for them, and even if you cut them out of your life, you and others can still be collateral damage. It can be a dark thing to completely give up on humans or to be given up on.The title is an attempt to add a futile amount of humor to the subject, dark comedy if you will, dark black. Macabre.”

Wilderness Dream premiere “The Observer” via Decibel

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 7:21 PM (PST)

Oakland blackened thrashers Wilderness Dream have premiered their song “The Observer” over at Decibel.

“The Observer” comes off of the band’s forthcoming EP Paralysis Rise out July 14 via Creator-Destructor Records.

Wilderness Dream guitarist/vocalist and label owner Ben Murray proclaims:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you the first single from our upcoming second EP! After some deliberation, we came to the consensus that ‘The Observer’ was the most violent, crushing preview of the tone of this record, and we hope that you all enjoy it! ‘The Observer’ is the closing track on Paralysis Rise, and definitely reveals the shift in our sound towards a darker, less melodic realm of the blackened thrash metal universe…Turn the lights down and turn that shit up!”

Wilderness Dream will be hitting California the first week of August, you can check out those tour dates and music from the band’s bandcamp here.

There are some records I have been waiting for a long time, such as Blackguard’s troubled Storm. Others that are in progress but aren’t near to being done such as the next Wax Idols, for example. Then there are bands like Icelandic rock band SÓLSTAFIR who I don’t follow super closely but am certainly a true fan of. Everything they have done has been stellar and moving stuff, like a kind of Sigur Rós with black metal roots.

I met a film director the other day rocking one of their t shirts and we had a spirited discussion about how great they are. This made me also recall that they had sorted some inner band issues and have a new record almost upon us. In fact, it is called Berdreyminn and is due this May 26th! This one seems to also explore some more of their hard rock influences, but in very non conformist ways.

The album, produced by Birgir Birgirsson (SIGUR RÓS, ALCEST) and Jaime Gomez-Arellano (GHOST, PARADISE LOST, ULVER), is lauded as “a compelling journey that offers ’80’s-style synths, chuggy rock riffing, Pink Floyd-y prog overtones, sweeping Fields of the Nephilim guitars, haunting orchestral arrangements and occasional metallic crunch” (Decibel Magazine) and is available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

SÓLSTAFIR recently unveiled all of the stunning new music from Berdreyminn. The album stream appears alongside an interview with vocalist Aðalbjörn Tryggvason at Noisey. Dive into another special experience from this smart and original group pushing the boundaries of our scene now.

Entrails premiere latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:56 PM (PST)

Swedish death metallers Entrails have released their latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)” off of their upcoming album World Inferno which is due out on June 16  via Metal Blade Records.

Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments:

“It’s about time to unleash our next beast called ‘Serial Murder (Death Squad)’ – that means you should roll up your sleeves, loosen up your ponytail and get in the mood with a proper beer and prepare yourself for a trip among serial murders. The Death Squad awaits you!”

Dan Swano, who mixed and mastered the record had this to say:

“I don’t know if I had said this before, but I say it again. Every time I start thinking about putting together some new SweDeath project, Entrails show up at my doorstep with a new album to mix, and every time I think ‘Fuck!! – What’s the point in making my own project when this is so fucking good, and exactly what I wanted to do…’ And if I felt there were some details to improve upon from our previous work together, they fix that and then some, and return with an album even stronger than the previous one. What the fuck is going on in Linneryd!? Is Jimmy cloning death metal warriors in some barn over there or what!? To sum it up. Yet another amazing slab of SweDeath coming your way from Entrails! Beyond. Blown. Away!”

BardSpec release “Gamma” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:36 PM (PST)

Enslaved’s Ivar Bjørnson’s project BardSpec has released a music video for the track “Gamma.”

“Gamma” comes off of BardSpec’s forthcoming album Hydrogen due out June 23 via Norse Music.

Comments Bjørnson of the band’s latest single:

‘Gamma’ is a meditation on the magic of science, or perhaps the science of magic. The mysteries of the atom and nuclear physics have fascinated me deeply as long as I can remember. Enlightened humans have known for thousands of years that the concept of ‘god’ dwells within the corporal being, and with the atom bomb the proof was definite…to me at least. As scientist in charge [American theoretical physicist and professor of physics Julius Robert] Oppenheimer said, watching the first test atom bomb go off: ‘I have become Shiva: Destroyer Of Worlds.’ The other aspect of radiation is its communicative powers; of carrying information over enormous distances. We learn things about the universe and its early days from watching bursts of Gamma Ray make its way through the universe. Musically speaking it is one of the heavier songs, which I managed to sneak in a little Sigur Ros tribute into as well.

Check out the video for “Gamma” here.

The Interbeing release new single “Deceptive Signal”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:49 PM (PST)

Danish metallers The Interbeing have released their latest single “Deceptive Signal.”

The song comes off the band’s forthcoming album Among the Amorphous which is due out June 23 via Long Branch Records.

Singer Dara Corcoran on “Deceptive Signal”:
“Deceptive Signal is the 2nd track on our coming concept album about The Interbeing’s struggle with his creators. In this song The Interbeing hears a signal and is drawn to it but it turns out to be a trap made by his creators. To realize the visual storyline we contacted the gifted Jeb Hardwick and flew him in to Copenhagen to shoot the ambitious video. The countless hours playing in a green screen studio and postproduction really paid off. Jeb did an amazing job creating this other dimension with us and The Interbeing in it.”

Check out the video for “Deceptive Signal” here.

Myrkur reveals new album title

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:11 PM (PST)

Danish composer Myrkur announced that her new album will be titled Mareridt.

Mareridt is due out this fall via Relapse RecordsMareridt is the follow up to 2015’s M, which was Myrkur’s debut album.

Mareridt was produced between Seattle and Copenhagen by Randall Dunn who is known for his work with Marissa Nadler, Earth, Sunn O))), Boris, and Wolves In The Throne Room.

Stay tuned for the announcement of special guests appearing on Mareridt.

Editor’s Note: While we have really liked Myrkur’s music in the past and present, she did make some comments that were seen by some as Islamophobic in the recent past HERE. I know some very chill people who back her and others who now don’t. I did previously but then was on the fence after the comments came out. It would be nice if she would clarify her position, as I have not been able to find much clarification. It after all takes five seconds to say ,”I am against religious extremism, not inherently against one religion on principle.” Most religions have followers with varying degrees of nuance or with different interpretations of texts, after all. We have decided to publish this post for now due to the caliber and general integrity of some of the people she has worked with but it would be awesome if Amalie would put the issue to rest more thoroughly in our current world political climate.

Alestorm’s “No Grave But The Sea” sets forth on May 26th

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 5:39 PM (PST)

A friendly reminder that Alestorm, your favorite band of stage bashing, instrument brandishing buccaneers, return on May 26th with one of their rowdiest plunderings of the creative psyche yet, the bold and commanding No Grave But The Sea. If this isn’t your thing this won’t change your mind, but if you love your pirate metal? Consider this a serious haul. 5 albums in and the band are as ready to rock, rum and rollick as ever. The profanity heavy and pretty hysterical song “Fucked With An Anchor” alone is worth braving the high seas to purchase this dangerous album. The proud and stirring “To The End of the World” also will appeal to the more adventure and slightly less comedy minded historical metal head, sure to be a rallying cry among those who fly the Alestorm flag. The band are going to really shock some Hot Topic punks when they conquer the Vans Warped Tour this year! Pre Order HERE while you still may!
