Leave it to Melvins to release an EP longer than most LPs. Clocking in at forty minutes, Beer Hippy is the new 10″ from the fuzz kingpins and it sounds fucking rad. Melvins don’t do bad, so I guess this was to be expected, though. Lane and I had no idea this was happening, but we are both stoked to get new tunes from these legends. Stream the Beer Hippy EP below. Continue reading

Abigail Williams have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, The Accuser, at No Clean Singing. Titled “Lost Communion”, the new track barrels forth with a seemingly endless onslaught of melodic, yet scathing guitars and thunderous blast beats. Guitarist/vocalist Ken Sorceron issued the following comments regarding the new tune:
“This is probably the most straight forward song on the album. It’s restless as we were when we wrote it and it burns like alcohol withdrawal symptoms. It reflects upon burning bridges, dependency, negativity and self-destruction. Wrote this one at a low point but it still fits like a glove.”
Check out the track now.
The Accuser will be released on October 30 via Candlelight Records.
Abigail Williams is currently on tour with noise metal legends Today Is the Day. The remaining dates can be found below.
Kowloon Walled City have premiered the title track from their upcoming album, Grievances, at Decibel. “Grievances” is a lurching, six-minute beast that stomps steadily through bulky bass lines and melodic, towering guitars. Guitarist/vocalist Scott Evans offered the following comments regarding the track:
“The song ‘Grievances’ started with the investment bankers who threw a cocktail party overlooking an Occupy protest, and ended up at a 1911 shirt factory fire where dozens of employees died because the owners had locked the exits and stairwells. The album cover is related in some ways—look up Lewis Hine’s photography from the early 1900s.”
Check out the track now.
Grievances will be released on October 9 via Neurot Recordings. Pre-order here.
