I fell head over heels for An Autumn For Crippled Children years ago and since then they have become one of my all time favorite bands. The band has released numerous records over the last few years (many of which have been posted about here) and I have absolutely loved them all. Well, AAFCC will unleash their new album The Long Goodbye sometime this year and it is sure to be one to remember. I have actually heard pieces of the album and it is the bands most black metal record yet. You can check he album art up top and the track listing below. Continue reading

Something that doesn’t happen to often to bands these days is bands getting documentaries made about them. It happens every so often and it’s usually pretty cool. There was Why You Do This which focused on Car Bomb, there was As The Palaces Burn which was about the trial of Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe and most recently there was Forget Not, the documentary about The Chariot‘s final tour before calling it quits.
Well, there is a new documentary coming and it happens to be about one of my favorite bands: Rosetta. While I am not sure when the doc will be released, you can listen to/download the film’s soundtrack, which was crafted by the band themselves. Check out Audio/Visual after the jump. BUY IT.

Sumac, the new project featuring Isis‘ Aaron Turner and Baptists‘ Nick Yacyshyn (and features bass work from Russian Circles‘ Brian Cook), have premiered a new track from their forthcoming debut album The Deal over at Noisey. The new track is the nine-minute “Thorn In The Lion’s Paw” and it is, to quote Noisey, heavier than a bag of hammers. The track starts off with creeping piano chords that set the stage for a huge, lurching riff to come into view. As the song progresses, the instrumentation picks up pace and becomes sludgier and more volatile (much like that of sister band Old Man Gloom) and eventually ends in a piano-accompanied, noisy yet melodic dirge. Just check it out for yourself over at Noisey now.
The Deal will be released on February 3rd via Profound Lore and SIGE.
