Swedish progressive/psychedelic rock outfit Agusa have announced the release of their sophomore full-length record and follow-up to their self-titled debut. Simply titled Agusa 2, the album will be released on CD and digital vinyl on July 24, with a vinyl edition to be released through the band’s own Kommun2 label. The record’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.
The Obelisk have premiered the album’s massive 20-minute opener, “Ganglat Fran Vintergatan”, for your streaming pleasure. The hazy-eyed, multi-faceted monolith is sure to appease fans of Magma, Can and the most psyched out of Pink Floyd‘s discography.
Denver progressive/psychedelic doom quartet Dreadnought have premiered the title track to their forthcoming album, Bridging Realms, over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The over 11-minute closing tune combines elements of post-rock, post-metal and doom with ethereal and folk nuances to create a massive, multi-faceted monolith that does belong in a single category. Stream the eclectic track after the break.
Bridging Realms will be released on August 11 and can be pre-ordered here.
Progressive instrumental metal outfit Scale the Summit have premiered the official video for their new track, “Stolas”, over at Guitar World. The track, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming album V, is set to a humorous, satirical and awesomely cheesy 80’s-themed clip. Who doesn’t love glam metal, anyway? Check it out after the break.
V will be released on September 18 via Prosthetic Records.
You should all be well aware of my love for Coheed And Cambria. I mean, the band ended up on my year-end list two years in a row and for good reason: They rule. Well, the band will release their new album The Color Before The Sun in October and, interestingly enough, the album strays from the bands Armory Wars concept, their first album to do so. Also, based on the first single “You’ve Got Spirit, Kid,” I would say this album will sound more like the bands Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV-era. You can check out said song below and read a statement from Claudio himself. Continue reading
Between The Buried And Me will release their new and highly anticipated new record Coma Ecliptic on Friday, but you can hear the whole thing right now! The album is some of my favorite work by the band and I hope I’m not the only one feeling that way. BTBAM always produce choice material and if you want to see if Coma Ecliptic is up your alley, check out the stream below. Continue reading
British post-prog act Milk White Throat, whom I have featured here on the site a few times, have been working on new material lately and it appears that it is coming to light. The band has released a new music video which is for a new track titled “Under Duress.” The song is great, like all MWT songs are and the video is really rad. For a performance video, it is definitely one of my favorites I’ve seen in a while. Check out “Under Duress” below. Continue reading
Annnd, BTBAM is a spectacular way to kick off a Thursday morning, is it not? The band never disappoints and I honestly don’t think they will start to disappoint on their upcoming album Coma Ecliptic. From what I have heard, the album is going to completely blow minds. If you want me to prove it to you, check out a stream of BTBAM‘s newest track “Famine Wolf.” It’s a kick in the ass. Enjoy.

France’s experimental progressive rock/fusion trio Morglbl have premiered a new track from their forthcoming full-length, Tea Time for Punks, over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The track in question is the album’s opening freak show, “Banjovi”. The track cycles between beefy hard rock riffs, angular playfulness, funk-laden guitar virtuosity and eccentric, circus-style interludes. The track is all over the place and doesn’t stick to one particular style or riff for very long before switching it up again. Basically, it’s fun. Head over to Heavy Blog is Heavy to check it out now.
Tea Time for Punks will be released on June 25.
At the end of last month I talked about Abrams‘ track “Sea Salt Lines.” Well, that same band has released a new music video for that same track! It’s such a great track and the video is pretty cool. It’s really fucking weird, but it is Abrams, so that was expected. You can check out the video now, just click on over after the jump. Continue reading
Prog metal outfit Third Ion (Ex-The Devin Townsend Band/Into Eternity) have premiered the title track from their upcoming debut record, 13/8Bit, over at Metal Hammer Norway. The new track churns out bouncing riffs injected with a rock swagger, impressive guitar acrobatics, catchy hooks and 8-bit hooliganism. Check out the colorful yet heavy jam at this location. Previously released track “Capitol Spill” and an in-studio video performance of the track “Zero Mass” can be found after the break as well.
13/8Bit will be released on May 25 via Glasstone Records.
