Rosetta, a band that is a favorite of myself and Lane, have announced that work is almost complete on their new EP Flies To Flame. I don’t know about those of you who aren’t fans of Rosetta or how you could deny the awesomeness of their post-rock mastery (which was well documented during Post-Rockgust), but I am beyond excited about the prospect of getting new Rosetta material. You can check out a statement from the band after the jump as well as listen to the bands 2013 LP The Anaesthete, which is still available for free download. Continue reading

To get a feel for what is to come, American Aftermath are proud to provide you with an exclusive stream of the album’s second track, “Eater of All Things”. The six-minute monolith is extremely thick and heavy, with tinges of melody. It calls to mind bands like sludge/post-metal greats Neurosis, and more recent doom darlings, Thou. You can find the track after the break.
Additionally, the album’s artwork, track listing, and a stream of HUSH.’s previous EP can be found below.

Jar’d Loose’s 2012 debut, Goes to Purgatory, was almost too good to be true. The Chicago quartet expertly combined the driving rhythms associated with bands like Helmet, with subtle noisy debauchery and offbeat vocals. The end result was an eccentric, fresh take on the 90′s-tinged alternative metal and noise rock sound. Goes to Purgatory was pretty straight forward, but was pulled off with finesse and provided the framework for the band’s sound. But a band as odd as Jar’d Loose are not above pushing their own boundaries. Their sophomore full length, Turns 13, shows the band extending their tendrils into new territories while still maintaining their dirty sound.
Chicago noise rockers Jar’d Loose have teamed up with Gear Gods to bring you a playthrough video of drummer Phil Hardman jamming out to the band’s new track “Carrion Guy”.

Jar’d Loose will also be playing the following shows this weekend with Fuck the Facts:
Apr 18 – Oshkosh, WI @ The Underground
Apr 19 – Minneapolis, MN @ Triple Rock Social Club
Kreig are a band that has evolved and expanded its sound many times since the Battlegod demo was released in 1996. The band has always captured my attention and I have always admired them. That’s why I got so excited when I found out that CVLT Nation was streaming the two tracks that will be available on the bands Record Store Day 7″ Isolation/Transmission. I mean, it’s Kreig! The band has transmuted itself to play a form of blackened post-rock on this release and it’s utterly phenomenal. Continue reading
