A FUCKING ELEPHANT Detail Upcoming 7″

As previously reported, the instrumental noisy rock duo, A Fucking Elephant, will be releasing a new 7″ in January. January 22nd to be precise! The upcoming, two song set will simply be titled Seven Inches (get it?) and will feature the tracks “I’m Addicted to Drugs and Sex and I Want You to Choke Me” and “A Bunch of Good Looking Roundeyes”. The 7″ will be released through the band’s own label, Nefarious Industries, and will be limited to a 500 copy wax pressing (250 black vinyl and 250 yellow).

I have already listened to this thing and it is a little different than the material on their split with El Drugstore. It’s a little slower, more hypnotic, a little dissonant at times, but still whacked out on coke. You can watch a live performance of “I’m Addicted to Drugs…” below and peep their January touring schedule that will be updated soon. Don’t sleep on this!

Aftermath Exclusive: Stream ACID OCEAN’s Self-Titled 7″

Acid Ocean 1 - FrontOver the last few days I have been responding to a few e-mails I receive from bands. I used to do this as often as possible, but as of late I have fell behind. I posted about Swarm Of Arrows, one of the bands who have emailed me recently and now I bring you an exclusive stream from another! Acid Ocean is a three-piece sludge outfit hailing from Milan, Italy and what they do, they do extremely well. I am a huge fan of sludge metal and I find myself entranced by the power and aggression that Acid Ocean brings on their new self-titled 7″.

With two songs, totaling at almost eight minutes, this record absolutely kills. Slow and punishing but mature and structured. This band takes their influences very seriously and you can hear elements of a plethora of bands like Electric Wizard and Eyehategod but they have a lot of non-sludge parts in their music also which is what makes them quite diverse. Stop what you’re doing and stream Acid Ocean‘s new 7″ below. Continue reading
