I have long been championing my stoner-doom homies from the Great White North, Dopethrone and I was thrilled when I recently learned that the band had landed a long-overdue record deal and that they would be releasing a new album this year. The bands new album is titled Hochelaga and the band has released their first “video” for their track “Scum Fuck Blues.” I love this track, but unfortunately this is my least favorite type of video: random visualizations thrown together behind a song. BUT, this song is killer. Check out some new Dopethrone below.
I only recently learned of Heavydeath, but I’m really glad I did. If you want to know what this band sounds like, their name doesn’t leave much to the imagination.

Heavydeath has unleashed a new track off of the album over on CVLT Nation titled “Heavy As Death.” Check out the track below and see for yourself. Continue reading
Experimental doom outfit Hiram-Maxim have premiered the opening track from their forthcoming self-titled debut album over at Vice. The track, entitled “Visceral”, combines sludgy bass lines with Pink Floyd-esque progressive rock nuances and Oxbow-style weirdness. The sprawling seven minute jam is a trip down the rabbit hole, where everything is noisy, psychedelic and just plain odd. Feel free to stream the track after the break.
Hiram-Maxim will be released through Aqualamb Records on March 3. Pre-orders can be sought after here.
