I’ve got some more rad, psychotic, wild music for you folks. This time I’m presenting you tunes from a band out of Seattle, Washington called Mercy Ties who channel the inner madness of bands like Tragedy and Botch. Or, as Lane stated, a noisier Orchid. All of which I can get behind as I proudly premiere their new track “Hungry And Buying Dreams.” You want this. Check out an interview with a few members of the band as well as a stream of the track after the jump. Continue reading »
Radical post-rocking sludge heathens Intronaut released a stunning album earlier this year under the title Habitual Levitation and while a lot of the songs are memorable, my favorite track is probably the brilliantly-crafted “Harmonomicon.” Lucky for me (and for you), Intronaut has just released their new music video for that track! The video is beautiful and entrancing. Check it out after the jump and be sure to grab Habitual Levitation. Continue reading »
If you’re a fan of black metal, you’re a fan of Drudkh. You have to be.

Drudkh has released one of their songs off of the split, which will feature only cover songs, and it is amazing. It is a cover of Hefeystos‘ 1997 track “… W Krainie Drzew.” Check it out: Continue reading »

Periphery recently announced the release of a new project entitled Clear, that will see the light of day on January 28th. The band states that Clear shouldn’t be seen as an EP nor should be confused with the band’s forthcoming third full length album. The band states that Clear is an experiment in which the band explores the different writing styles of each individual member. The album starts off with Overture, a track in which a melodic themed is established and is utilized in some form or another in each subsequent track. Each member will have complete control over their own track, as well. The full statement from the band and an audio teaser can be found after the break.

Alcest is a beautiful band that I have been in love with for some time now. The band was one of the first post-black metal bands that I got into and they remained one of the genres forerunners for quite some time. That is, until now. It seems the band has chipped away layers of itself and what we are left with is beautifully crafted dream pop.
If you have listened to and love Anne, you will totally be into this. I’m digging the path that Alcest has chosen to walk. It’s dreamy. Check out the bands new video for “Opale” after the jump. Continue reading »
