I have long maintained that Kevin Sharp (of Brutal Truth fame) has the distinctly most savage and hearty screaming voice in metal and the latest from his project with Napalm Death alumni, Venomous Concept‘s Politics Versus The Erection, does little to shake that certainty. The bellow to out bellow them all is paired with the band’s most blatant Poison Idea-worship yet for one of the most satisfying audio weapons yet to wield in the political shitshow of 2020. I am in need of blasting it after pedo protector Cardinal Dolan spoke at the RNC last night as if he is any moral authority on anything!

Kevin Sharp comments: “We wanted to do a record that sounded reactionary. We went into a studio wrote and recorded PVE in four days, in the age of digital thinking, records full of edits. Politics Versus the Erection is perfectly imperfect.”

Spylacopa

Today, May 1st, Bandcamp are waiving their share of revenue sales for 24 hours. Groceries For Seniors is a good start, if charity is in your heart more than genre. Here are ALSO (of course) a few great weirdo rock and metal releases we recommend you buy or check out if you are looking for something or someone cool to support or listen to.

First up, Sacred Bones has a new Sabbath covers comp out. The Uniform gnarly take on “Symptom Of The Universe” (sans melodic “Yeahhhhs”) is pretty rad. Thou doing “Supernaut” is probably my favorite track, all things said. Just beastly. They also include Hilary Woods doing “N.I.B.” plus Marissa Nadler’s “Solitude” cover and Zola Jesus doing “Changes”, among others.

 

Barishi- Old Smoke : A beastly stomper that recalls and nearly rivals earliest, angriest Mastodon, staggering like a wounded warrior through prog-coated mazes of confusion pursued by a mean ass Minotaur. “The Silent Circle” has one of the most no holds barred album opening riff onslaughts of the year once it gets rolling out of the fog. A welcome return from the Vermont masterminds and sure to create a big wave. Support!


Adzes – No One Wants To Speak About It: The always top notch Tridroid Records folks are going to be releasing the Adzes melodic sludge debut a lot of us have been waiting for. This is likely to be one of the top releases in the genre as far as musical quality goes this year. This Seattle project is A+ passionate and worker centric, perfect for a May day plug.  Forest Bohrer channels some major Godflesh vibes on “Divide” and the artwork accentuates the themes of wealth inequality destroying humanity.

Spylacopa – It’s All Over Now : Some digitally enhanced shoegaze influenced moody art pop material from the always eclectic Spylacopa project. John LaMacchia (Candiria) and Rising Pulse are always worth checking up on.
“Lost we are without/The guiding beacons burning out” feels like a good summary of how hard it is to keep faith during this sketchy moment for humanity.

During the writing of SUNN O)))’s opus Life Metal, Greg and Stephen created three rehearsal demos of riffs and production ideas in Anderson’s Downtown LA rehearsal studio. SUNN O))) is pleased to offer them via Bandcamp Day, TODAY ONLY. Proceeds will go to Global Food Banking Network.

Find the demos here:

Ok, friends. Back to crying about Order 66 for me. See ya soon.

Well, it is sadly apparent that in addition to the terror of the virus ransacking the world at present that we are also going to likely be in a rad live concert photos deficit for awhile in the entertainment world. While that is obviously not the worst problem in the world, it is still a bummer. To satiate your rock n roll urges a little we have some killer shots from Petra Dollet Photography today of Weedeater, The Goddamn Gallows, Atomic Bitchwax and the Worshipper boys tearing up Sonia in Cambridge for you bilge rats today. Enjoy BELOW and play some damn loud music in quarantine, kids.

RIP Sean Reinert

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 7:00 PM (PST)

Season of Mist Records announced earlier today that Sean Reinert, the drummer, percussionist, keyboardist and producer for the band Cynic, has died.

Cynic’s bassist Sean Malone posted on Facebook today about Reinert’s passing:

“I was luckier than most. Complete musical trust—especially between a bassist and a drummer—is a rare and precious thing. Rare, because it’s not something you find by looking for it. Precious, because some may go an entire lifetime without ever having experienced it. But I was luckier than most. Sean offered his trust during every rehearsal, every recording, and every performance we ever did, and it’s likely that I’ll never experience the same again. The truth is that we’re all lucky—lucky to have been alive while Sean Reinert was making music.”

In addition to the tour announcement, ABYSMAL DAWN has even bigger news in store for 2020!

The forthcoming full-length was mixed by Charles Elliott and produced and recorded by Charles Elliot and Mike Bear at Tastemaker Audio while the drums were tracked by John Haddad at Trench Studios. The offering was mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. I for one am incredibly pumped at this news and was hoping the band would land a new, solid contract somewhere soon!

Speaking about the upcoming offering, ABYSMAL DAWN comments:
“We’re officially done with album number 5! It’s been quite some time since we released any new music, and we feel we have something special on our hands. It took a lot of time, effort, and seeing through some trying times to get to this moment. We’re very proud of the outcome and think fans will agree it was worth the wait. Musically we’re pushing our limits more than ever, while still maintaining what people love about Abysmal Dawn. Now we take a quick breath before getting back once again to spreading our brand of misanthropic extreme metal across the globe. See you on the road in 2020!”

Hey gang. Feeling the cooling positivity of that day after blue wave feeling and sipping some black coffee. Finally checking out this Cro-Mags (Harley version) promo from the remnants of Victory and I have to say that I don’t really understand why anyone says it sucks. “From The Grave” with Phil from Motorhead is a ripping rad rager and the vocals do sound ferocious if not my favorite voice for the band. I am way more of a fan of the John and Mackie version and wish they could somehow just dead this shit in the name of PMA and form the tightest , ugly heavy and illest combo going but after the violence and all the hate I understand why it is two distinct camps. It is sad, but I am gonna try and keep an open heart and love both.

Been going through a lot of crazy shit the last month with a very crummy landlord situation and family stuff as well as the year winding down so haven’t had the gusto to do too much self-insertion into any posts, but I wanted to thank you all who continue to support the site and also in the scene and general world who believe in ourselves and one another. We can heal a lot and restore balance to the force or justice or progress as a scene or wider society if we can process our pains and biases and try to move things in a productive and healing direction while still having respect for oneself and boundaries. I have to believe for all the good and bad days we all have that a lot of us underneath it all are better people than not or at least want to be. Sending you all love and horns tonight. Don’t mind me, I finally finished reading The Elfstones of Shannara and the sacrifice of Amberle to bond  with the land as the next tree protector to shelter and cradle life through synergy has affected me and made me think about interconnectedness.

Anyway, on to some evil ass gnarly metal news- hahaha!

It has been a big Season Of Mist week around here so let’s not stop now! Defiled from Japan have a new album announced. This death metal group rip so fucking hard, it is truly a spectacle of unhinged wonder. The band will release their new studio album, Infinite Regress on January 24, 2020. The album art and track-list can be found below. Additionally, the band have revealed “Tragedy,” the first single from the effort. “Tragedy” can be heard below.

DEFILED comment: “The day has finally come! We are so incredibly proud to announce our new record, ‘Infinite Regress.’ The album will be out on 24th Jan 2020 via our home of Season of Mist. Please give a listen to our first official premiere song ‘Tragedy’ and we hope you guys enjoy it. Cheers!”

I don’t know about you but I think “Tragedy” fucking rules and love the brainy intro that devolves into fierce speed and then interesting slower deathy kinda tribal thud before back to a full fledged powerful attack. And some chunky ass lead parts amidst the growling chaos! This band is so cool and I really like their arrangements and clear dedication to not giving a shit about trends.

‘Infinite Regress’ can be pre-ordered in various formats HERE.

CARACH ANGREN from are currently in the studio recording the follow up to the exquisitely titled Dance and Laugh Amongst The Rotten release. This new effort will be the 6th horror infused black metal theatrical endeavor from the twisted act of geniuses from Netherlands.

The band comment: “After many incredible tours meeting our dedicated fans around the globe, we finally return to the studio! Over the past two years a lot of creativity and effort has already flown into preparing our sixth monstrous full length album. For recording drums, bass and guitars we return to familiar grounds, working with the talented Patrick Damiani at his Tidal Wave Studio in Germany while vocals and orchestral arrangements are being prepared in our own crypt. For the mix of the album we welcome a new force, namely Robert Carranza (MARILYN MANSON), who’s work up until now has impressed us very much. Get ready for another chapter of horror!”

More details as we get them. In the meantime…

Here is some cool and somewhat different news for your Monday (other than that Richard Spencer is a POS nazi and wbk). Apple TV’s new series “See,” starring Jason Momoa (‘Aquaman,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ etc.), features a special appearance from ARCHSPIRE vocalist Oli Peters and drummer Spencer Prewett on the pilot episode! Peters showcases his signature gunfire vocals in a scene in which Momoa hand-selected the band to appear. The episode ‘Godflame’ can be seen at THIS LOCATION.

Very glad to see more good stuff happen for one of the coolest bands in metal!

About “See:”
A virus has decimated mankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see – who must protect his tribe against a threatened queen.

Later this month, ARCHSPIRE will kick off a European headlining tour. The band will be performing in support of 2017’s JUNO-Nominated record, Relentless Mutation. The full itinerary is as follows:

The Old Dead Tree were one of the best metal bands I ever heard in my life. I was particularly obsessed with their 2007 release The Water Fields, which I raved about for Crusher Magazine the year it was released. I can’t believe it has been so long already! I have probably listened to that CD more than any other progressive minded death metal. The Paris, France based act just captivated me with cool riffs, imaginative and passionate songwriting and emotional thrills. Today I am thrilled to announce, absolutely elated to write, that Manuel Munoz and the band are releasing one more record many years since their last.  Honestly this news almost made me tear up today.

‘The End’ which will be released on December 6. This final chapter, containing 5 never released tracks, was already written in 1999, a few days before the tragic loss of drummer Frédéric Guillemot. With this record, the band is closing their career with one last tribute to their long-lost friend. The EP includes a bonus DVD containing an extensive documentary on the band’s career.

In addition to the announcement, THE OLD DEAD TREE has premiered the first single from the record, “The End… Again.”

‘The End’ can be pre-ordered in various formats HERE. Pick up their other CDs while you are at it!

Vocalist/Guitarist Manuel Munoz comments on the track: “We’re proud and happy to share these new songs with you. As you know, beautiful things take time…”

Appalachian psych rockers BASK have teamed up with The Obelisk to premiere their latest single, “Three White Feet,” which is taken from the band’s new album, ‘III.’ The song can be heard at THIS LOCATION.

BASK comment: “We are excited to bring you ‘Three White Feet,’ a song of devotion and revenge. It’s track one on our upcoming album ‘III,’ and the first to take shape during the writing process.”

‘III’ will be released worldwide on November 8 via Season of Mist. Pre-order it HERE.

In addition to the premiere, the band has announced a North American tour in support of the record release, including a hometown show in Asheville, NC on the day of the album’s debut. The full list of dates are below. Ticket links are TBA.

Cynic‘s Traced In Air makes me feel like friggin’ Light Hope from She Ra has appeared in a vision above me and told me the universal deep feels hidden truths of prog metal. It is crazy that it has already been over a decade since the bold album brought the well-heralded band from a fifteen year dormancy and bursting back into the scene with a more melodic yet superbly potent tendencies. Now this week there is an incredible NEW version of the album Traced In Air Remixed for us nerds to lose our collective gushing shit over…and it is a huge blessing! It was an integral birth of a new era for the band and deserves more scrutiny in any form that takes.

Now, a decade later, CYNIC usher forth a renewed edition of that very album. Featuring new tracking by virtuoso bassist Sean Malone and a vibrant new mix by PERIPHERY’s Adam “Nolly” Getgood (ANIMALS AS LEADERS, DEVIN TOWNSEND, HAKEN) plus mastering by Ermin Hamidovic (PERIPHERY, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, etc.), ‘Traced in Air Remixed’ underscores the record’s importance within the genre. 

GRAB IT SEPT 27th! 

Track List:
01. Nunc Fluens (02:57)
02. The Space For This (05:47)
03. Evolutionary Sleeper (03:36)
04. Integral Birth (03:45)
