Instrumetalists Tempel have just hopped onto my radar over the last few days and they have taken up a big chunk of my listening today alone. This band signed to Prosthetic Records not too long ago and, seeing as they were instrumentalist and on Prosthetic Records, I assumed they would be more proggy (a la fellow instrumental Prosthetic artists Animals As Leaders and Scale The Summit) but this isn’t the case at all. This band produces some of the most mesmerizing doom and gloom instrumental tunes I’ve heard in a long while (if ever).
The band has released a few tracks off of their forthcoming debut release On The Steps Of The Temple and now you can check out a new one called “Avarita” after the jump. This is one of my favorite tracks on this record and I highly suggest getting into this shit. Enjoy. Continue reading
Japanese post-rock masters Mono have just announced another stint in North America for next spring after their recent east coast run a couple months ago.

Luckily two of those dates are in my area, so I might have to hit up one of those shows. Full itinerary of tour dates after the jump. Continue reading

You keep it with you wherever you may go and, after listening to it, you are left with an element of surprise despite the constant listens you may have given this single piece of music. When this happens, when I fall head-over-heels for music, it is usually after several listens to the piece and not an instantaneous effect. Continue reading
France is a wonderful place when it comes to extreme music. I have gotten into a ton of bands from the country over the years and right after starting this site and making friends with Fuck The Facts‘ Topon Das, he introduced me to Year Of No Light. This band is atmospheric, haunting instrumental post-rock hailing from the land of baguettes and they are preparing to release their new album Tocsin.
The band is currently streaming two new tracks off of the album: the albums title track “Tocsin” and “Stella Rectrix.” Both of these tracks are amazing and they definitely deserve your time. Check them out after the jump and tell me if I was wrong. Continue reading
