One look at the grim, barren landscape that graces the cover of Lament Cityscape‘s debut full-length, The Torn, brings the thought of the Earth’s inevitable dissolution to mind. Rapid industrialization and environmental and societal collapse will be the catalysts to our self-induced apocalypse. That empty, infertile patch of land that stretches for miles on the album’s cover will eventually be all that’s left to see on the planet. Man’s interaction with the environment and the negative effects that result, may or may not be the focal point of this Californian duo. Regardless of their intention, The Torn inadvertently serves as a soundtrack to life after the fall of civilization. Lament Cityscape‘s massive compositions paint a bleak picture of a planet ravaged by years of neglect and spotlights the struggles of those left behind.
One of my favorite bands of the last few years has definitely got to be Kowloon Walled City. This band creates beautiful, sludgy soundscapes that blend many different genres and always deliver. The bands new record Grievances will see it’s release next month and the band has just unloaded the albums debut single. The track is titled “Backlit” and it is absolutely amazing. Kowloon are going to kill it this year. Continue reading →

Michael Kadnar is a busy guy. As a musician, he spends his time drumming for NY/NJ experimental metal band Black Table, as well as German post-metal/black/neocrust unit Downfall of Gaia. He also runs a forward thinking boutique record label called Silent Pendulum Records, that already has a short string of solid releases under its belt. I spoke with Mike about balancing the duties of being in several bands on two different continents, pushing a label forward, booking a fest, and about the musical landscape as he sees it. The label’s latest release is a reissue of the s/t record from Australian band Hope Drone:
Man, my love for So Hideous is waaay up there. I seriously love these dudes and I’ve been crushing on their music since the So Hideous, My Love days.

We recently got the first teaser for Deafheaven‘s new record New Bermuda and the band didn’t keep us waiting for long for more material. Well, technically the first material from New Bermuda, the bands new track “Brought To The Water” was released today and it is siiiick. I really love Sunbather, but this record sounds nastier and more raw, so I am stoked to get some Deafheaven this year. Check out the new track below. Continue reading →
Jesus, that is a long headline. I love The World Is A Beautiful Place, but typing their full name is a bitch. I’ll jump right into this, TWIABP is one of the best bands on the planet whose ranks are ever rotating and whose music is calm and cool as well as intense and radical. They will be releasing a new record Harmlessness this year and the band has released a new song and video. The track is called “January 10th, 2014” and it is won-der-ful. The video is also rad. Check it. Continue reading →
You know, the first few times I saw Lane post about Blacklisters, I let it go to the wayside. Recently though, I took a listen to the band and I am digging the hell out of the British noise mongers. The band is currently streaming a rad new track titled “I Knock Myself Out” and it is a beast. Check out the track below, courtesy of Noisey. Continue reading →
I know there are people out there who think there is too much hype behind bands like Deafheaven, but I think they make killer tunes that I really dig.

UK noise rock quartet Blacklisters have premiered the official video for their new track, “Shirts”, over at Crack Magazine. The bludgeoning, maniacal track, which will appear on their upcoming album, Adult, is set to an equally manic video depicting the members going completely nuts, naturally. Frontman Billy Mason-Wood comments on the new track:
“This song, Shirts, is a song about shirts, about wearing them, about needing them, about loving them. I didn’t wear a shirt once and this is what my world looked like. Always wear at least one shirt.”
Check out the video after the break and make sure you are wearing a shirt while doing so.
Adult will be released in the UK via Smalltown America in September and in the US on October 16 via Handshake Inc (vinyl) and Exploding in Sound (cassette).
