Experimentalists Horseback have premiered the official video for their track “The Inheritance (Changeling)” over at Self-Titled Mag. The track comes from the band’s 2012 album, Half Blood, and is set to images of decaying and demolished buildings inhabited by geometrically-shaped smoke organisms. It’s a very odd and eerie video. You can check it out after the break.
You can also stream both Half Blood and their most recent album, Piedmont Apocrypha, below as well.

The new collaboration between former Mars Volta members and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea, Antemasque, have released two new singles for your streaming enjoyment. The new tracks are entitled “People Forget” and “Hangin’ in the Lurch” and they call to mind a mix of the later Mars Volta material with At the Drive-In.

The Mars Volta may be no more, but founding members Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala still appear to be making tunes together.

One of my favorite record labels in hardcore and metal music today is Deathwish Inc. (home of Deafheaven, Converge, Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Punch and many more). And over the past few days they’ve been teasing and counting down to a major announcement of some kind. None of us knew what it was, many assumed it could be an album release of some sort but the label dropped no hints until the announcement came today in the form of the picture you see above you.
So, I’ve listened to all of the Punk Goes… series of compilations because they are usually hilariously bad so of course when I found out they were releasing the sequel to Punk Goes ’90s, I was stoked to hear all these terrible bands cover songs I grew up on. To be honest, I was shocked that some of these covers aren’t half bad. Asking Alexandria‘s take on Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer” was close to spot on for a bit as was Motionless In White‘s cover of Rammstein‘s “Du Hast.” Other songs, such as Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! covering “All Star” by Smash Mouth and Falling In Reverse‘s “Gangsta’s Paradise” were just laughable.
You can stream the entire compilation after the jump. Or don’t. Now I’m just waiting for the next Punk Goes Crunk or Punk Goes Pop. So much shitty music, so little time. Continue reading →

Young Widows have debuted a new track from their forthcoming album, Easy Pain, which is out on May 13th via Temporary Residence Ltd. The new track is entitled “King Sol” and it’s full of raw, syrupy grooves that will stick in your mind. You can stream the new track after the break as well as check out the band’s forthcoming tour dates.
I don’t know how I let a band that features members of three bands that I absolutely love slip past me, but some how Get Involved did. This band apparently features members of From Autumn To Ashes, Thursday and ex-Glassjaw and they are pretty sweet. Nothing extremely heavy, but clearly a product of those bands influence. The band released an album earlier this month and now they have released a music video for their track “Let Your Guard Down” which you can see below. Leave your thoughts in the comments.
Swans have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, To Be Kind, over at Pitchfork. The new eight minute tune is entitled “A Little God in My Hands” and is highlighted by discordant grooves, multi-layered instrumentation, walls of sound, and Michael Gira’s haunting crooning. It’s quite the odd track, even by Swans standards, and that’s a compliment. The band also shared the album’s six-paneled artwork, courtesy of Bob Biggs, which can be seen after the break. Head over to Pitchfork to stream the new track.
Pre-orders for To Be Kind can be purchased through Young God Records starting March 31st. The album will be released on May 13th.
