Brooklyn based experimental/drone musician Dana Schechter (Insect Ark) has premiered the new music video for her track “Symbols” over at CVLT Nation. The haunting track comes from her new EP Long Arms and is set to an equally eerie and interesting video. You can check it out after break if you feel like being tripped out.
CVLT Nation have premiered the new video for the abysmal, experimental drone act Theologian track “Welcome to the Golden Age of Beggars”. The track comes from the group’s most recent effort Some Things Have to be Endured and is set to the Gretchen Heinel directed clip depicting an elaborate and highly sexualized ritual. The dark yet beautiful nature of the song fits the clip eerily well. Find out for yourself below.

Locrian have released a new video for their track “Two Moons” from their most recent album Return to Annihilation.

You can check out the video after the break.
Sacramento’s own Death Grips have a history of surprising just about anyone that follows their exploits. 2013 proved to be no different due to various show cancellations and other controversies, but the band seems to be finishing the year out by dropping a new record for free on the internet with absolutely no warning whatsoever.

The noisy grinders from Canada, Column of Heaven, recently applied their atmospheric/noise/drone talents to a short film. The film, directed by Justin Oakey, is entitled “Motherland” and has been submitted to a competition to be featured in the sequel to the anthology film The ABC’s of Death. To those who haven’t seen the original film, it is a compilation of short films from different directors themed after one letter of the alphabet. Some of the films were serious, but most were of the black comedy variety. So Column of Heaven and Justin Oakey came together and created a film for the letter “M”. You can check out the unsettling film at this location and be sure to vote for them by clicking the Facebook “like” button. Go check it out and listen to the band’s album Mission From God after the break.

The three track EP Master, We Perish, was only the tip of the iceberg destined to wreck the ship that is our psyches. The purveyors of apocalyptic dread, The Body, have unleashed ten new End Time hymns that collectively make up their third full length album Christs, Redeemers. Once again, the Portland duo have created an album that truly captures the feelings of insurmountable isolation, dread and hatred.
There are few people in the hardcore community who have done as much as Justin Pearson and done it their way. From all the bands he’s been involved with over the course of his 20+ year “career” to his label Three One G, Mr.Pearson has not only maintained relevancy in the minds of punks worldwide but he’s done it on his own terms. Plus he’s a swell guy, as evidenced by agreeing to be interviewed by a nobody like me. Read on after the break.
Throughout their ten year existence, the experimental musical outfit Kayo Dot have become a paradigm of virtuosic musicianship and boundary-pushing composition and performance. The band has constantly reinvented themselves on each of their releases and never seem to run out of ridiculously complex and eccentric ideas. With ten years and six albums under their belt, Kayo Dot have yet to deplete their supply of creative juices. Hubardo is the band’s massive seventh full length record that runs around an hour and a half in length, with equally massive song lengths ranging anywhere from five minutes to fourteen. The songs that make up Hubardo aggregate elements of the band’s past work as well as their previous incarnation Maudlin of the Well. Those unaccustomed to the avant-garde weirdness of Kayo Dot will not know what to do when their mind begins to leak out of their ears.

The new track can be streamed exclusively at Invisible Oranges right now. Listen to it now and prepare to be haunted by nightmares.
