Interesting bands are more interesting than boring ones. What else can we say?!

 Let GNAW’s Cutting Pieces corrode your sanity; stream the entire LP at Invisible Oranges RIGHT HERE.

Translation Loss will release Cutting Pieces on LP, CD, and digital formats this Friday, October 27th; find merch bundle and preorder options HERE. So far we like the cacophonous and clangy intro section to “Wrong” the best!

GNAW has confirmed a record release show for Cutting Pieces at Brooklyn metallic booze vortex Saint Vitus Bar on October 29th, where they’ll be joined by the heroics of Couch Slut, Escuela, and Syndromes. Seems like a good night to completely lose your shit! \m/

Giant Squid break up. FTW. I hate life now.

West coast innovators Giant Squid have made several underground (underwater?) classics in recent years and sadly might be done for now.

Read the statement HERE.

The amount of disdain this fills me with for all the shitty bands I usually try to ignore who clog the arteries of the music world is palpable.

Damn it. Truly one of the best bands out there. But the records will remain for those lucky to find them. Some bands make a few albums and break up while copying trends along the way. GS made the ichthyologist . ‘Nuff said.

I think anytime is a good time for people to do what they want – Henry Wilson

Live photos by James Covington 

Henry from House Of Lighting took the time to answer my questions on the band’s supersonic riff ride Lightworker and what they have cooking for later this year and beyond. This band reminds me of the thrill I got from early ROIR Bad Brains/Soulside, Van Halen’s Fair Warning and the stuff released by Wilson’s acclaimed band Floor (though Wilson plays a different instrument in the two bands). It’s all  thrown in some kind of multi-dimensional rainbow blender like the Gargantua/black hole space Matthew McConaughey knocks books out of in Interstellar. It might not make you break out Goddess crystals (unless you are me) but the Lightworker name suits these bursts of pure energy and life just as well as seeking some inner peace and calm space through New Age music. Fans on Enya don’t get a lock on good vibes, haha! Check out “More Lights, More Trails” HERE.

The band’s music is sure to thrill fans of punk, technical metal, crazy innovative hard rock or fuzzed out stoner types who can handle really trippy kind of buried harmonies reflecting back at them from the center of some serious riffage. Get on board with  this Florida storm of electric vibes now! Everyone should be talking about this band a lot more.

Giant Squid set to return with “Minoans”

San Francisco progressive doom-rock scientists, GIANT SQUID will release their anxiously-awaited fifth LP Minoans October 28 via Translation Loss Records. Recorded and mixed with engineer Tim Green (Earthless, Melvins) at Louder Studios in Grass Valley, CA, the record sees the avant-garde band at their most refined, focused and vital as it fully embraces its Mediterranean leanings and lyrically excavates one of the earliest civilizations known to history; examining how the aquatic demise of the ancient proto-Greek people may foretell our own end. Minoans is the follow up to GIANT SQUID’s 2011 release Cenotes, an album that was hailed as “science sludge” by Pitchfork and “earthy, experimental doom metal à la Neurosis” by Revolver.

GIANT SQUID has been wielding palatial vocals and enormous waves of cello, keys, and exotic sludge riffs for over ten years, garnering universal critical acclaim. On Minoans, marine biology and natural history metaphorically collide with heartbreaking stories of historic human tragedy; resulting in some of the most emotional and sincere music being made today in any underground scene. Recorded this past June and tested live over the summer supporting like-minded peers YOB, Minoans is crushingly heavy, exotically beautiful, a musical; GIANT SQUID’s finest hour to date. Conceptual artwork created by guitarist / vocalist Aaron John Gregory adds to soaring scope of this ambitious album.

“Minoans is the record I’ve always known Giant Squid could make; ancient, exotic and other-worldly, while showing a new level of refined focus,” comments Gregory. “Lyrically, the album is a giant love letter to the Mediterranean and specifically Bronze-age Greece – a region, people, and time period that deeply fascinates me – and which I feel mirrors these heartbreakingly brutal, turbulent times we live in today.”

Check out an interactive art piece on the demise of the Minoans HERE.
