Sorry kids, but the buck doesn’t stop at Converge. As much as I am a HUGE fan
of J. Bannon and the gang, it didn’t even completely start there. Any early
Today IS The Day or Starkweather fans out there? Yes, Converge are for many
the go to band for a mix of some of the most extreme metal, hardcore and noise
with DIY heart out there. They have earned their stars as scene generals
through serious drive and are an example of “you reap what you sew” in a GOOD
way!

For me, it is thrilling to find bands who are unafraid to tread a bold path.
Myrkur comes to mind as a total “no fucks given” type who is making really
cool music out of combined aesthetics. I’ll even say I personally think the
latest Liturgy record is totally ingenius and you can call me a hipster while
I ignore you and really enjoy myself. It’s ok, I like Dissection’s records as
well (even as a bi sexual male…God, that was such a fucking shame).
Look, We’re all gonna die someday so make the art you want to. Have you HEARD
how rad the new Tribulation is? Seriously!

You really want all of mom and dad’s cash to go towards you being another mall
emo clone band or strictly “commercial” hard rock radio (in a pretty much post
radio age, lmao) sound? It’s pretty commercial to me that Fear Factory, Cattle
Decapitation and Lamb Of God are posting the best chart numbers of their
careers, even if it is easier to chart high these days by selling a few
thousand records in the day of music entitlement. I’m all for shared
experience and sampling and content trade and mix tape culture but also see
the music being given out on platforms artists never signed up to be on or
used to sell Youtube ads. Don’t pretend all your reasons for wanting free
music are pure. It fuckin’ makes it really hard on working creatives so cut
the shit.

That said, a punk rock non whiny spirit is also important and here are some
bands that don’t get discouraged easily and do their own thing SO FUCKING
WELL.

See the list BELOW.

In quite exciting news, pro drummer Nick Augusto (ex-Trivium) has joined the ranks of the much smaller but way cooler Orbweaver. Hey, I like me some Trivium but if they let Augusto go it’s their loss. Nick’s ability to tightly execute harder parts or just get down and dirty will fit in well with the sort of loose yet spastic death metal style of the very out there Orbweaver. I can’t wait to hear Nick play “Crystal Prisms” in particular. This is gonna rule.

Comments Augusto of enlisting with this heady band, “I’m happy to have been asked to be a part ORBWEAVER. We have all played shows with each other’s bands in the past and have been friends in this scene for quite some time now. I’ve jammed with [guitarist/vocalist] Randy [Piro] before, so the timing was right when we got a hold of each other to join forces and write new material. Looking forward to what this new CD and the future holds for ORBWEAVER!”

Hexagram 23 is the working title of ORBWEAVER’s forthcoming anticipated full-length. The record follows the band’s critically-adored debut EP, Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, which Terrorizer Magazine dubbed, “a surreal and thoroughly absorbing journey that is equal parts psychedelic, brutal and intricate.”

Seriously, it’s crazy shit fans of everything from Gigan to Psyopus to classic death metal ala Morbid Angel can enjoy on some level. Fucking horns.

Orbweaver are one of the more interesting bands to come along the last few years. Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon is more than just a wordy and trippy album title to make Gigan fans envious. The strange brew the weavers of Orb cook up is in no small part affected by the guitar tricks the lovely Sally Gates adds to the recipe. Now you can watch an Orange Amps gear breakdown for the upcoming guitar heroine HERE.

Detroit-based Corpse Flower Records is pleased to release the vinyl edition of Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, from Florida exploratory death metal behemoths, ORBWEAVER!

The brain-fraying Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon EP was recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche and initially released last Summer in a limited run of 100 cassette tapes via Primitive Violence Records and on CD direct through the band. The vinyl edition has been remastered by James Plotkin (OLD, Scorn, Khanate, Khlyst) and is limited to 300, hand-numbed and assembled copies in three color configurations: 100 on translucent blue, 100 on translucent orange and 100 on translucent purple. Each copy comes with an an 11″ x 17″ poster and digital download.

 Commended for their, “twitchy, trippy tech death,” by Invisible Oranges and called, “big, oozing and unusual,” by Sea Of Tranquility, on Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, ORBWEAVER journeys far beyond conventional genre realms with a kaleidoscopic fusion of psychedelia, noise, and a distorted rendering of progressive death metal. Continually shape-shifting between these impetuous, trance-like elements, ORBWEAVER conjures interplanetary pandemonium reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled and violently elegiac chaos.

 Order Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon on wax via Corpse Flower Records at THIS LOCATION.

Orbweaver check in from the road

Florida exploratory death metal behemoths, ORBWEAVER, recently waged audio Armageddon upon the US with a twenty-date run of live takeovers alongside fellow Sunshine State sludge slingers, Shroud Eater.

 

Relays guitar demoness, Sally Gates, from the van, “The ‘Wintour’ has been excellent so far. We’ve had a great response at all the shows and some very generous hospitality. A couple of highlights from the road including stopping in New Orleans in the lead up to Mardi Gras. We had a massive sci-fi-themed parade go right past the venue. There were even Dr. Who costumes and floats! We also had an archery challenge in Pensacola — New Zealand vs Colombia vs USA. Scores are still being debated…It’s great to be on the road with our good friends Shroud Eater, and the bonus of touring in the Winter is that the van still smells fresh! Thanks to everyone who’s come out to our shows so far, and hope to see the rest of you on the road!”

 

ORBWEAVER is currently touring in support of their cranium-crumbling Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon EP, released last Summer. Recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche and mixed/mastered with Brian Elliot at Mana Recording Studios (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Exhumed), on Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon, ORBWEAVER travels far beyond conventional genre realms with a kaleidoscopic fusion of psychedelia, noise, and a distorted rendering of progressive death metal. Perpetually shape-shifting between these impulsive, trance-like elements, ORBWEAVER manifests interplanetary pandemonium reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled and violently elegiac chaos.
