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.

Pitchfork has unveiled pro-shot footage from their music festival in Chicago earlier this month of Deafheaven performing a new track entitled “From The Kettle To The Coil”. The video footage arrived yesterday with tweets of the above image and the caption “It is done. Come August, it’s yours.” with the PRP reporting that the newly performed track will be part of Adult Swim‘s free singles series for this year, scheduled for release and download on August 25th. The track is standard Deafheaven fare, continuing alongside the revamped direction of Sunbather, though there is a trudging number around the 2:00 minute mark that could foretell a harsher direction for the band in the future. Stream the video for “From The Kettle To The Coil” below and bookmark the Adult Swim Singles page for future reference. Continue reading
A few months back I posted about a rad compilation featuring bands covering Misfits tracks.

If you’re like me, you were subjected to many hours of your childhood being spent on PBS, probably finding yourself watching Reading Rainbow. As a kid, I wasn’t aware that the guy hosting the show was also Geordi La Forge nor did I know that one day I would be writing a post about it on my metal blog. Continue reading
Why am I not surprised that Weedeater love doughnuts? I mean, everyone loves doughnuts so why wouldn’t a stonerdoom band love them?! Well, Weedeater want to show you exactly how much they love the sweet delectables in their new track “Hot Doughnuts Now.” The track was recorded after Weedeater performed at one of Scion A/V’s shows at the Satellite in L.A. Apparently, every band that plays records a track that is then pressed onto 7″ vinyl which is then distributed for free at future shows.
Check out the track below. Continue reading
I am a huge black metal fan and one of my favorite styles of the genre is black punk. What is black punk, you ask? It’s a raw and filthy style of black metal that drips and oozes with punk tones. The band that got me into the genre is Raspberry Bulbs and now another band has crept into my peripheral. The band is called Floridian Winter and I have heard whispers about the band here and there across the interwebs but sitting down right now and listening to the bands material, I am blown away. Check out a stream below that is being hosted by our friends at CVLT Nation, who also have a free download of both releases in the stream. Continue reading

I am a huge can of post punk, especially when it is done correctly. I have recently (and by recently, I mean yesterday) learned of a new post punk artist who creates haunting and mesmerizing tunes under the moniker This Cold Night. The guys name is Chase Morledge and he is a phenomenon. I mean, it’s like the nineties and two-thousands never happened. This is so ’80s reminiscent that it’s fucking insane. Check out a full stream of his new album We Of Like Minds after the jump. Continue reading
