Australian post-blackened doom wreckers Hope Drone are zeroing in on their new record Cloak Of Ash and the band has unloaded a new track titled “The Chords Thrum Beneath The Earth.” This track might be my favorite I’ve heard off of the record so far and it’s really, really sick. Everything Hope Drone does is spectacular, this is what makes them one of my favorite bands right now. Stream “The Chords Thrum Beneath The Earth” below. Continue reading

Nathan Gray might not be a household name, but he has a strong background in music. I know the dude from Boysetsfire and a bit from his work with I Am Heresy. He has taken on a solo career and his music is just wonderful. I don’t often quote from the press releases I get, but this one I have to. Nathan‘s music on his debut EP NTHN GRY is described as “Satanic post-industrial pop” and that is spot-on. It’s so odd, but it is mesmerizing. I love it. Check out the first track off of the EP below. The track is titled “Wolves” and it’s a great introduction to the “card-carrying Satanist” Nathan‘s sound. Continue reading

This expansive and emotive release will more than likely appear on many “Best Of” lists this year. Stream and download the interstellar opus for yourself after the break.
Louder-than-life act Ecstatic Vision, who feature former members of A Life Once Lost, will release their debut album Sonic Praise next Tuesday and the band is currently streaming the effort in full.

You can check out Sonic Praise after the jump. Continue reading
German noise rockers Heads. released a really cool, self-titled album last month and the band has followed it with a really cool music video. The video is for the albums first track “A Mural Is Worth A Thousand Words” and I really like it a lot. The video has a lot of really cool elements to it, although it it mostly a static shot of who I am assuming is either Ed or Chris but with a lot of post effects added in. You can check out Heads. video below. I dig it. Continue reading
Over the years, I have gained a ton of respect for Årabrot. The Norwegian noise rockers have won awards for their music in their home country and have gained a world-wide cult following. Why?

Årabrot is currently streaming this album is all of its noisy glory. Get some below! Continue reading
Watertank are a really sick French band who perform killer, noisy rock. The band will release their new album Destination Unknown very soon and to amp up anticipation, the band has released a new song. They have unfortunately released it on my least favorite platform: Stereokiller. It’s a great song though, so head on over and stream the shit out of it. It’ll blow your socks off.
Man, I can’t wait for the Relapse debut from Hope Drone. I absolutely love this band and I am so happy that they got a shot at Relapse to gain a name for themselves. Not that the band was nobody before. They just have a much greater reach with a good label behind them. Not to mention the band have crafted such wonderfully bleak music over the years and it seems as if Cloak Of Ash will be no different. Check out the bands latest offering “Riverbeds Hewn In Marrow” below. It’s superb. Muah. Continue reading

The band will release their debut album Mercy at the beginning of August and they have premiered a seriously killer track over on BrooklynVegan. The track is titled “The Freeze, The Fritz” and it is remarkably heavy and powerful wrapped up in a coat of rad. Check out the track below and take note, Stats are going to turn heads this year, Mercy is a beast. Continue reading
