Oh yeah! Went to a great Murder By Death show last night and I’m opening for Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel tonight but thought I’d do a little Metal Riot work first. Such sweet news for this Friday to help you start your weekend right. This from camp Relapse just in:

As the next chapter in Relapse Records’ ongoing 25th anniversary commemoration, heavy music visionaries NEUROSIS will have two of their most revered and long out-of-print titles reissued on super deluxe 180-gram double vinyl this fall. Through Silver in Blood (1996), which Fact Magazine recently deemed the #1 best post-metal album of all time, has not been printed on vinyl in ten years, while Times of Grace (1999) is seeing its first pressing in over fifteen years. Additionally, Grace, the 1999 Tribes of Neurot companion piece to Times of Grace, will also see a deluxe Relapse reissue, its first time ever on vinyl.

Each reissue will contain reinterpretations of the original iconic artwork and will be housed in heavy duty “tip-on” jackets and will be available in a variety of limited edition exclusive colors. The reissues are set for worldwide release  September 4th  and will also include full album digital download codes. Preorders for all of the editions can be currently found HERE.

Demon Lung are back, bigger and better in every way. Their previous output was good but A Dracula truly crushes. “Behold, The Daughter” is one of the most insistent marches in ages, like an earthquake wrestling with classic metal and doom riffs (plus a deadly Billy Anderson mix). Fans of the horror themed The Eye record of King Diamond will dig the devilish plot within these 8 songs, while the music could please the snobbiest echelon of hipsters and the more traditional stoner/doom crowd in one savage blow. This is perhaps the most low end of an Anderson produced release since his classic Melvins or more recent Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth work.

“My body is a graveyard and I am haunted,” sings Shanda Fredrick, and the effect is utterly convincing bluesy horror soul.

Connect with your inner villain. Check out A Dracula now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

Insect Ark 2 pc Chris Carlone
I’m probably the last person on earth who can tell you what Insect Ark sounds like. Maybe it’s my mirror of the world, which I see as beautiful and threatening at the same time.- DS

Dana Schechter (Bee & Flower, Angels of Light) has begun a new chapter with her Insect Ark project, a thrilling foray into mysterious and unnerving experimental, doom influenced music. First album Portal/Well is sure to put the goosebumps on the arms of any listener with the cajones or wanderlust and courage to travel along with Schechter on this freaky trip. Unison, Locrian, Swans, Tearist, Rasputina, KK Null, Helen Money, Scorn or The Body fans…anyone with an ear for the uniquely unhinged, needs to check this project out NOW.

Castle are pure metal and pure rock n roll at the same time. It’s the kind of band that makes the admittedly great Ginger Baker out of touch as fuck for criticizing Heavy Metal. Castle are 100% dynamite and just the band to call when music is Under Siege.

Currently listening to DRCARLSONALBION’s Gold as I write this, stretched out notes rounding the curve of my mind to carry some desert light to the backmost reaches of persona. Hot day crawling to a close and reading a Jack Reacher book from a pile of stuff my dad gave me before he died.Thinking about how anything Dylan Carlson is involved in seems to really resonate on the same frequency as the rugged, underground American spirit of freedom.

Carlson’s band EARTH are a favorite and I’m pleased to announce they have a slew of good events coming up, 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. According to their PR:

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.

Ghost’s “Cirice” video is a talent show of Satanic delight

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 8:02 AM (PST)

ghostmelioracd

Ghost‘s highly anticipated (by ghouls and trolls alike) new record Meliora has an official first video for Sabbath meets Flash Gordon sounding first single “Cirice”? I love everything this refreshing band touches.

Best talent show ever? I dunno. I remember my sixth grade performance of Partners In Kryme’s “Turtle Power”  was pretty shell-tastic (me and my friends had paper mache turtle masks and hockey goalie padding for shells). But this new Ghost video might ust have us beat. You decide BELOW.

Shadow Woods Metal Fest 2015 shifts location

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 7:24 AM (PST)

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 FESTis 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, includinglead 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.
