This year at Fun Fun Fun fest in Austin, TX, I was able to catch Torche’s awesome set where they broke out a brand new song. The song was extremely heavy, groove based, and had massive amounts of distortion and low end. It was one of the heaviest songs I have heard this band create. Luckily, someone filmed this event and uploaded it online. You can check that out below. Also, the band played another heavy, ball busted in Meza, AZ last month and fan filmed footage caught that as well. It looks like the next Torche album may be the heaviest thing they have ever written. Check out both of those new songs below.
Pelican and Chord guitarist Trevor de Brauw has released a new track online as a part of his solo work. The track, originally recorded in 2006, is entitled “They Keep Bowing” and is slated to appear on Trevor’s “probably-never-to-be-completed solo album Uptown” The track was released as a part of the 2012 Neon Marshmallow Compilation. The track is in the same vein as Chord as it is an ambient, droning soundscape. But it’s a little more dynamic and psychedelic than Chord’s past material. You can stream the track below if you so wish.
Progressive metal act Intronaut have assigned a release date and a title to their upcoming record. The record is entitled Habitual Levitations is slated to be released on March 19th via Century Media. John Haddad (Exhumed, Phobia) was brought in for drum production while Derek Donely (Bereft) handled the rest of the production. Josh Newell mixed the album after Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Pelican, etc) had to back out because of that bitch Sandy. So far that’s the information that has been released but I know all of you are excited. You know you are. Don’t lie.

Instrumental technical metal trio, El Drugstore (East of the Wall, etc), are currently working on their first full length debut record. The record is tentatively titled Plague Ship and is being eyed for a Spring 2013 release. American Aftermath are here to hook you up with your first taste of new El Drugstore! Below, for your streaming pleasure, is a demo version of their new song “Fascinating Underpants”. The track is full of spiraling licks and jarring rhythms that will melt your measly brain upon listening. Guitarist Kevin Conway describes this track as being one of the more “straight-forward” tracks on the record but trust me when I say it is anything but. Check out this awesome track below! As an added bonus, we have an exclusive interview with guitarist Kevin Conway (ex-East of the Wall) that can be viewed below as well. Check it out nerds!
