Basilica SoundScape 2018 lineup

Basilica SoundScape, a carefully curated weekend that’s been called “the anti­festival” for offering of a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature, is presented by The Creative Independent’s Brandon Stosuy and Basilica Hudson co-founders Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone with additional creative direction from long-time visual and design director of SoundScape, and former Pitchfork Creative Director Mike Renaud – now head of Chicago-based integrated creative studio Varyer, who are formally joining the team as co-presenters of the event.

ASG are freakin’ great. They remain kind of slept on but respected. I saw them live once and regret being super shitfaced and barely remembering the show… but it isn’t like that is the only band I ever did that during so don’t feel like it was on purpose, dudes. Anyway, the stoner rock temple riff pilots now re-emerge with their sixth-full length and first new album in five years, Survive Sunrise, due out June 15 on CD/2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. Hear the opening, title-track “Survive Sunrise” on Loudwire HEREand all digital streaming services AT THIS LOCATION.

Scientist killing it live (photo by Josh Dagenais)

Lara Noel McGlynn is the head organizer of Chicago Doomed And Stoned Festival, one of the funnest smaller underground niche extreme musical festivals of the year. We highly recommend you make the trip to Reggie’s in Chicago from June 1st-3rd. From some of the best bands in Chicago to like minded souls from around the country, this festival has a killer grouping of acts from Brume to Whores to The Skull to Scientist to Inter Arma and on and on.

It seems like only yesterday that Lara and I were completely shitfaced watching NIN, Soundgarden and Dillinger but now Dillinger is gone, Chris Cornell is dead and in hindsight I was so drunk I wish I remembered a lot more of that show! Anyway, Lara moved away from my area and has been kicking major ass in the metal scene supporting bands and so it was great to catch up with her and find out what is gonna make this festival super special and lit!

You just can’t mess with the apocalyptic blood soaked precise deathly potency of any given Skinless release. The savagery unfolds for sure on the title track for the new effort from the long running underground titans. Check it out below and be sure to pre order the new monster fucker of an album. It drops via Relapse in May! Major grooves and deadly heaviness. Loving the sluggish and full bass sound and the low ass riffs. Reminds me of some major Obituary meets Morbid vibes, with the scales tipped towards the Obituary side. This new song totally slaughters.

YOB, the Oregon-based trio that Pitchfork proclaimed “one of the progressive acts of their generation,” will release Our Raw Heart, the band’s eighth full-length album and Relapse Records’ debut, on June 8.

“We’re very excited to share this new music,” says singer/guitar player Mike Scheidt. “We gave it everything we have. Going from an uncertain future in the beginning of 2017, to writing and then recording a new album at the end of it, it was quite a year. We’re very grateful. We’re looking forward to hitting the road again and celebrating decibels and good cheer with friends worldwide. Can’t wait.”

The news of the seven-track album’s release arrives as the band confirm a North American tour, kicking off June 14 at 89th Street in Oklahoma City. The outing, which will feature direct support from Bell Witch, also includes performances at Austin Terror Fest and Mutants of the Monster 2018. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.

Our Raw Heart was co-produced by the band and Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Ore., with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive). Decibel Magazine and Stereogum named the release as one of their most anticipated albums of 2018. Pre-Orders for Our Raw Heart will be available April 10 via Relapse.com.

YOB’s most recent release, Clearing the Path to Ascend, was one of 2014’s most heralded releases, with Rolling Stone saying the music “makes perfect bedfellows of volume and beauty, pain and transcendence.” Stereogum said the four-track album offers “a universe unto itself” while Decibel said the songs were “as riveting as you could ever hope for them to be.”

YOB recently reissued their fifth full-length album, The Great Cessation, in December via Relapse. That album can be streamed via all digital retail outlets HERE and ordered via Relapse.com HERE.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 2:53 PM (PST)

Cool death metal news today as Gruesome have completed the follow up to Savage Land. Yes, the other releases from them were EPs. Their latest studio offering, titled Twisted Prayers, was recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida. Twisted Prayers follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. The record once again features artwork from the legendary Ed Repka (Death, Megadeth, Venom) and is expected to be released this summer via Relapse Records. Stay tuned for more info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Love this project, just a big fat Death appreciation party in good fun. You know each time Gruesome return that it will be a very metal time. The band also have a slew of Euro tour dates you can check out BELOW.

King Woman to tour with Russian Circles

Posted by Metal Riot on Monday, January 29, 2018 at 12:54 PM (PST)

KING WOMAN have announced a Spring 2018 North American tour with Russian Circles. The tour begins March 27th in Los Angeles, travels through 18 cities and ends April 22nd in Chicago, IL. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.

Additionally, KING WOMAN has recently shared a cover of “I Wanna Be Adored” by The Stone Roses. Listen and order the powerful cover on all digital services HERE.

KING WOMAN’s latest album Created in the Image of Suffering received high end of 2017 praise charting on notable album of the year lists such as Loudwire (#16), here at Metal Riot as our top album of the year (#1), Treble (#9), and Revolver (Best Music Video – Manna #15) among numerous others.

Created in the Image of Suffering is out now worldwide on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available on Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads on Bandcamp HERE.

Created in the Image of Suffering was recorded with engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Wreck & Reference, Oathbreaker) at the Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, CA.  Each song evokes rich, gloomy imagery with crumbling washes of blurred, billowing distortion densely layered atop hazy, psychedelic atmospheres that call to mind a surrealistic Black Sabbath fronted by Mazzy Star. Complete with deeply personal, introspective lyrics that serve as a catharsis for years of religious and mental torment, KING WOMAN truly suffer to create their art.

A full collection of KING WOMAN’s music videos is available HERE.

Additionally, KING WOMAN are happy to announce they have now joined the management roster at Sargent House (Chelsea Wolfe, Deafheaven, Russian Circles, Earth, Mutoid Man, etc) and have just launched their new website which will be at kingwoman.band.
