Stream the new Demon Hunter album “Outlive”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 4:51 PM (PST)

Fan favorites Demon Hunter have gotten more and more adept at combining their heavier and more melodic hard rock sides into a coherent whole (“Jesus Wept” into the groove heavy single “Cold Winter Sun” is a good example). Outlive is one of their finest releases yet in a career of many albums and live appearances. This band really follows through for fans and believes in what they are doing. They have been going strong since the early 00’s and have earned my respect. Personally I am liking this record more than The Extremist so far. Check it out below.

Lava Invocator are streaming their new Mörk release (purchase HERE), atmospheric but overall fairly traditional black metal. Def getting a Storm Of The Light’s Bane influence on a lot of the tracks as they alternate between disorienting attack riffs and cryptic, moody dissonance. Really liking the production and tone values, not to crappy but not over done either. A great mix of good sounds but still harsh. The vocals are also especially harsh and guttural at times and other times more of a higher snarl, a cool contrast. The almost 40 minute record is streaming at Metal Underground HERE.

Enslaved to release Roadburn 2x live album for Record Store Day

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 4:03 PM (PST)

Roadburn Live is ENSLAVED‘s first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of band’s headlining shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015, an edition curated by ENSLAVED‘s guitar player Ivar Bjørnson.

Walter Hoeijmakers, Roadburn’s Artistic Director comments on the release: “It’s no secret that there’s a strong friendship between Roadburn and ENSLAVED. One of the most hard-hitting and progressive bands to come out of Norway, ENSLAVED has played a significant part in the festival’s history – both musically and antically. Not only has ENSLAVED been our artist in residence, bringing side-projects such as The Armageddon Concerto (the ENSLAVED/Shining collaboration), Dream Of An Opium Eater, and Trinacria to Roadburn, Ivar Bjørnson has also been our 2015 co-curator, along with Wardruna’s Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, resulting in Skuggsjá’s first ever performance outside of Norway. ENSLAVED‘s 2015 performances were the pinnacle of this enduring and artistic friendship, and showcased the massive influence the band has had on both Roadburn and the (underground) metal scene for the past two decades. To have these shows captured on vinyl is a dream come true for me, and I truly hope it’s the same for anyone who was in attendance, or those who want to indulge themselves in the Northern magic of ENSLAVED.” 

Roadburn Live will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions and as Roadburn/ENSLAVED-Webshop Gold edition including the original A3 Roadburn poster and color stickers!

Insect Ark “Portal/Well” vinyl release news

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 2:44 PM (PST)

Insect Ark is one of my favorite experimental outfits. I think founder Dana Schechter is pretty much a musical genius and we were thrilled to run this interview with her about the original release of the album back in 2015.The project  started as a the one-woman solo project of bassist/multi-instrumentalist Dana Schechter (M. Gira’s Angels of Light/Bee and Flower). In January 2015, Portland-based drummer Ashley Spungin (Taurus) joined on drums and electronics and they have been gigging here and there ever since.

Portal/Well is finally available as of a few days ago, with a two color silkscreen on archival grey paper. The vinyl LP is being released by Sleeping Giant Glossolalia Records, artwork updated by Nicole Boitos Hayworth.

Says the band of the new artwork:

Nicole Boitos built the original egg diorama out of a real goose egg for the CD version, (which also featured photos by Simple Box Construction), so it was natural to ask her to illustrate the variation for the LP. The results came out beautifully.

Great news! 3 years no booze today. Seems like good day (haha) to finally re-release my 00’s Kingston, NY band Antidote 8‘s TRUE FORM record plus 2 NEW SONGS “Tower of London” and “Just Try”. Thanks to Dave Daw and Robert Kelly for shooting me the tracks!

RIYL Tool, Van Halen, Clutch, Iron Maiden, Chevelle, etc.

Rebecca Vernon of SubRosa guests on “Settle Down” (she cut the vocals around the same time she was doing No Help For The Mighty Ones, more or less).
Drums on “Just Try” and “Tower Of London” by Jordan Childs.
Lead vox on “Just Try” by Adrienne Nixon (I love how tight we were getting at harmonizing towards end of the project).

Hopefully some of you will enjoy these tunes and the truly insane guitar solos of Eric Nixon. We had some good times along the way, including shows with Thou, Dio Disciples, Black Tusk, Steve Brown of Trixter, Painmask and Joey Eppard of 3.

Original EP tracks engineered by Jay Andersen at Darkworld Studios.
