YIDHRA Streaming New Track “Cult Of Bathory”


Los Angeles stoner doom outfit Yidhra have premiered the title track from their upcoming EP, Cult of Bathory, at Invisible Oranges. “Cult of Bathory” is a fuzz-laden, slow-burning jam that unleashes riff after bulky riff and is propelled by vocalist Ted Venemann’s gruff barks. Venemann issued the following comments regarding the new track:

“The most vile and inhumane acts are always perpetrated by humans. In nature, most seemingly atrocious acts can be explained by the base instinct to survive. That is definitely not the case with mankind. With our industrial capabilities and ‘advances’ in science and technology, we’ve grown quite efficient at destroying and profiting off of nature. Not even the most docile and innocent are immune to our perverse behaviors. The legend says the Countess Bathory bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Millions of people are inadvertently doing the exact same thing every day. The truth is, no matter how hard we try to be ‘cruelty free,’ we’re not. At some point along the way there’s a product that you use, or there’s a component used in the manufacturing of that product that is covered in the blood of innocence. In that instance we are all guilty. We are all members in the Cult of Bathory.”

Cult of Bathory will be released on December 11 via Black Voodoo Records.

EXCLUSIVE: Stream HUSH.’s Gargantuan “Oror”


New York doomsayers HUSH. will release their five-track follow-up to their 2014 full-length, Unexist, early next year. The new EP will bear the title Nihil Unbound (artwork above) and will be released on January 8, 2016, via the band’s official Bandcamp, with a vinyl release to follow spring 2016 through a collaborative effort between Dullest Records, Silent Pendulum Records and Fuzz Records. In contrast to its predecessor, these five songs feature a more stripped down, raw and claustrophobic atmosphere with lyrics based in philosophical nihilism to match. We at American Aftermath are proud to premiere one of these five earth shattering tracks, the leviathanic “Oror”. This eight-minute tune churns out hypnotically heavy, city leveling riffs in abundance. Frontman Charles Cure’s bellowing vocals, combined with guest vocalist Mers Sumida’s (Black Table) banshee shrieks only add to the song’s suffocating atmosphere. Stream the lengthy jam after the break.
