Japan’s post-rock legends Mono have premiered both of their forthcoming new albums over at A.V. Club. Rays of Darkness and The Last Dawn will officially be available on October 24th (Europe), 27th (U.K.), 28th (North America) and November 5th (Japan) and can be purchased here, here and here. But if you cannot wait one more minute for these huge, expansive albums, then head over to A.V. Club to stream them both now.
The Great Sabatini have released the official video for their track “Life During Wartime” off of their most recent creation, Dog Years. The album’s melodic yet sludgy closing track is set to a collection of scenes from the 1993 animated film, “The Thief and the Cobbler”. It may seem random but works pretty well with the song itself. Feel free to check out the video after the break.
Blues-infused noise makers The Cutthroats 9 (Unsane) have announced a string of Western U.S. tour dates in support of their most recent effort, Dissent. The trio will be joined by the likes of ÆGES on all stops on the tour. The touring schedule can be seen after the break along with a stream of the track “Eraser”.
As Lane told you earlier this month, Anatomy Of Habit will be releasing a new album Ciphers + Axioms next month and the band has issued its first single from the album. The track is titled “Radiate And Recede” and it’s pretty rad. If you like doom, post-rock and styles of that ilk, I think you’ll be into Anatomy. I’ve been a fan of this band for a bit and I think they sound as good as ever. Stream the new track below. Continue reading
Swedish instrumental rockers My Brother The Wind have premiered their forthcoming opus, Once There Was a Time When Time and Space Were One, over at The Sleeping Shaman.

Rosetta, a band whom Lane and I adore, released their new EP Flies To Flame yesterday and we are both extremely excited about it. To coincide with the albums release, the band put the whole thing up on Bandcamp for all the world to stream. Trust me, if you know whats good for you, you’ll kick in the five bucks and purchase the album, but if not, just stream it after the jump. But yeah. Buy it. Continue reading

My postblackened homies Vattnet Viskar have been on a spree of awesomeness ever since they signed to Century Media last year and released their debut LP. The band is about to embark upon a radical tour of the US alongside Pallbearer and Tombs. If you have any dignity, you better get your asses out to one or more of these shows and support the fuck out of Vattnet Viskar, Pallbearer and Tombs. For real, though. This will be life changing. Check out the dates below. Continue reading
Swiss black metal act Schammasch are a band that I discovered earlier this year with the release of their second full-length album Contradiction. I love the album and the atmosphere that Schammasch creates, so of course when the band released a new music video I was curious as to what it would entail. The video is for the bands track “Golden Light” and it is definitely abstract. It’s not necessarily hard to follow, it’s just weird. I guess that’s what I should have expected however. Check out the video after the jump and come to your own conclusion. Enjoy. Continue reading
Today Is The Day have premiered their forthcoming 10th studio album, Animal Mother, over at Lambgoat. The new album combines the heaviest and strangest of the band’s discography into a 14 track (which also includes a cover of the Melvins‘ “Zodiac”) behemoth of an album. Animal Mother will officially be released next Tuesday, October 14th, and pre-orders are still being offered here. Stream the new album over at Lambgoat now.
Philadelphia noise rock outfit Ladder Devils have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Clean Hands, over at Lambgoat. The new track is entitled “Nameless, Faceless” and comes across as some kind of hybrid between the noisier, more abrasive moments of Nirvana and the post-hardcore outfit Quicksand. It’s heavy, abrasive and catchy to boot. What more could you want? Head over to Lambgoat to stream the new track now.
Clean Hands will be released on November 4 via Brutal Panda Records. Pre-orders can be placed here or here.
A good friend of mine is constantly giving me compact discs that they’ve burned for themselves. Because of this, I was cleaning my apartment and unearthed an old copy of White Pony they had given to me. As any Deftones fan would expect, after listening to it, I was thoroughly blown away. It got me thinking about their discography and raised some curiosity in the process. What are your favorite Deftones albums? Here’s my two cents and I know that at LEAST one other AA staffer loves the band. Also, when was the last time you seriously sat down and looked at the album art for Saturday Night Wrist? Amazing! Get my two cents after the jump and don’t forget to complete the poll
Remember when I interviewed Brian (bassist/vocalist) of Milk White Throat and he told us that the band were finishing up their new album Death Of Beauty? Well, the band has released the album and you can now stream it in full. It’s really a great album and the guys have totally outdone themselves. The band seems a bit different than they did on their last record, but I really dig it. You can check out the album after the jump. Great work, Milk White Throat! Continue reading
The release of Xerxes new album Collision Blonde is slowly drawing near and the band has released another new track off of the album for all of us to enjoy. This track is titled “A Toast” and it’s very post-punk meets standard Xerxes sound. I love this track and have listened to it… Numerous times already. Check it out after the jump and see if it tickles your fancy. Or anything else. Continue reading
