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
Scottish progressive post-metal outfit Falloch have premiered their forthcoming sophomore full length, This Island, Our Funeral, over at Skulls ‘N’ Bones. The expansive, sprawling opus sounds serene, melodic, heavy (of course) and is sure to excite fans of Agalloch, Alcest, Opeth and even Isis. The album will be officially released next Tuesday, January 27 via Candlelight Records and pre-orders can be placed here. Feel free to stream the album for yourself at this location.
Circa Survive, Balance And Composure will be hitting the road alongside Chon this spring for a pretty hefty tour. The bands will kick off the tour in mid-March and it will run through until early May. I’m not too familiar with Chon, but seeing Circa Survive and Balance And Composure should be enticement enough. Check out all of the dates below. Continue reading
Brooklyn’s Sannhet have premiered a new track from their upcoming sophomore full length, Revisionist, over at Stereogum. The track is the three-minute maelstrom “Lost Crown” that churns out storming post/black metal hybrid riffs that the band explored on their Known Flood release. The track is heavy and devastating, but not without a sense of melody and melancholy. Head over to Stereogum to check out the track now.
Revisionist will be released on March 3 via The Flenser.
My friend Aaron Coker, who has done work in Reggie & The Full Effect and The Appleseed Cast but is currently focusing his efforts on Sisters Of…, sent me a message the other day that Sisters had released a new track and that I had somehow missed it. Well, of course I got right to it and it’s glorious. The song is almost nine minutes in length and honestly I could listen to another ten minutes. I love this band and all that they do, so if you do nothing else today, check out the rad new track titled “The Angel” below. DO IT! Continue reading

Outrun The Sunlight are a band I discovered a few years ago and I have been closely following them ever since. The band is currently crowdfunding their new album Terrapin (go throw some dollars their way here) and they have released a phenomenal new music video for their track “The Pace Of Glaciers.” You have got to check out this video. The cinematography alone is gorgeous, not to mention how amazing this song is. Check out the video after the jump and be sure to show your support over on the bands IndieGoGo. Continue reading
I clamored over Sisters Of… last year and it was announced earlier this year that the band would be releasing a new album next year, which thoroughly excited me. I love this band. In anticipation of the bands forthcoming effort, titled The Serpent, The Angel And The Adversary, the band is currently streaming a radical new track titled “Annabelle,” which you can hear below. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but I just watched the new James Wan-produced film Annabelle. I didn’t hate it. That’s not the point. Check out “Annabelle” after the jump. Continue reading
He Whose Ox Is Gored is a band that I’ve been a fan of for a good while and I fucking love the bands new EP Rumors. This bands brand of dooming madness is a special one and I am so stoked that the EP is now available and streaming over on CVLT Nation. I have embedded the album, for your enjoyment, after the jump. Check it out. Seriously. I’ll blow you away. Continue reading

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
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
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
Belgian post-metal outfit Charnia have premiered their forthcoming debut full length, Dageraad, over at CVLT Nation. The record features 35 minutes of enthralling soundscapes and crushing doom that call to mind the most tranquil moments of bands like Mogwai and the intensity of early Isis material. Check it out for yourself over at CVLT Nation now.
Dageraad will be released on September 20th via Consouling Sounds. Pre-orders can be placed here.
It’s difficult to reconcile that Happy Diving has only been a band for a little under a year. With only a four track demo out so far, the criminally unknown East Bay, California band embody a natural propensity for eased songwriting with catchy hooks and melodies that suggest a band in the long term, combining the groove and drive of early Weezer and California X alongside the depressive morose of shoegaze and dream pop into a unique concoction all their own. Today brings the second single, “Sad Planet”, off of the group’s recently announced, upcoming debut LP, Big World, recorded earlier this year with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr). It’s a track that’s more of the same, in a best way possible. Stream “Sad Planet” along with the first single “Weird Dream” below and pre-order Big World, due October 21st via Father/Daughter Records, here.
