Coliseum will soon unleash the madness that is their new album Anxiety’s Kiss and they have released their third song from the album. This track is titled “Course Correction” and it is fucking mean. Sludgy punk through and through and it’s so fucking killer. Check out the track via the lyric video after the jump. You’ll thank me later. Continue reading
Fuck, man. I don’t know how the weather has been wherever you happen to be, but in my neck of the woods it has been cloudy and rainy for days now and the only thing that really makes everything look better? Down and dirty sludge. One of my favorite bands, Weedeater have whipped out a huge dose of filthy sludge for us all to enjoy. Check out “Claw Of the Sloth” after the jump. It’ll fuck you up, son.

Californian sludge purveyors Wovoka have premiered their debut full-length album, Saros, over at Invisible Oranges. The album is officially out now via Battleground Records and can be purchased here. Saros is a tremendous release that features nearly a solid hour of crushing, demanding post/sludge metal that needs to be heard. Don’t believe us? Find out for yourself at this location.

I love Inter Arma. The band creates some of the darkest sludgedoom soundscapes and they always come out phenomenally. The band released the amazing Sky Burial in 2013 and followed it up with the 45-minute track The Cavern last year. Well, the band has reached back to their last full-length and have released a music video for their song “Destroyer.” It’s a strange, space-inspired video, but it’s a cool watch. Check it out below.

Southern-fried, resin-soaked sludge trio Weedeater have premiered a new track from their forthcoming fifth full-length album and follow up to 2011’s Jason… The Dragon, Goliathan, over at Noisey. The new track is titled “Cain Enabler” and features everything Weedeater is known for; hazy-eyed, distorted sludge and raspy vocals. You can check out the new track at this location.
Goliathan will be released on May 19 via Season of Mist. Pre-orders can be found here. The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen below.
WAKE and Primitive Man, two of the most promising young bands in extreme music are making preparations for their upcoming spring tour which will see them getting the party started right in Denver May 15 and bringing things to a close in St.Louis 5/28. With stops along the way in D.C., with The Body and Water Torture, and in Charm City at MDF with the millions of amazing bands that play that event every year.
This tour will cover both ends of the extreme music spectrum with Primitive Man bringing the slow, crushing, low-end pain with their punishing brand of blackened sludge/doom while WAKE will be providing the SPEEEED!! with the unending power and mania that is their hardcore/grind attack.
Continue after the break for tour dates and tour poster:
Imagine yourself in the middle of a frozen wasteland, far from civilization. The snow has accumulated tremendously and has swallowed your feet completely. The bitter wind swarms about you, threatening to peel the skin from your face. You finally collapse in a heap from exhaustion and starvation. Unseen wild animals can be heard issuing their hunting cries in the distance. You are convinced that the end is nigh and you begin making amends with whichever god you believe in. The debut album from self-proclaimed “winterdoom” outfit Phantom Winter, “Cvlt”, recreates this scenario through their haunting compositions. Born out of the ashes of German post-metal group Omega Massif, Phantom Winter aim to rip any shred of hope you have in you and leave you for dead.
Los Angeles sludge outfit Wovoka have premiered a new track from their upcoming debut album, Saros, over at No Clean Singing. The new track is a seven-minute behemoth titled “Chosen”, which takes the listener on a punishing journey through auditory caverns lined with dismal, claustrophobic post-metal. It’s heavy as heavy can be. Head over to No Clean Singing to check it out now.
Saros will be released on April 14 via Battleground Records.
In the past CVLT Nation have released tributes to bands by releasing compilation cover albums featuring however many bands it takes to complete the album. I usually post about these compilation and the latest is no different. The new CVLT comp is a complete cover of Black Flag‘s Slip It In and it features bands like Kylesa, Angry Gods, Augurs and more. Check out the comp below and download it for free. Continue reading
It is a sad, sad day for us who listened to and loved Indian. The sludge act was most definitely influential and they were one of my favorites. It sucks a fat one to see them go, but there comes a time when bands move on. Like Battlestar Galactica, this has all happened before and it will all happen again. Rest in peace, Indian. We will remember the fond memories, and you music will live on forever. Crush. Continue reading
Whenever Aaron Turner attaches his name to a musical project, people take notice. Whether it be the forward-thinking metal compositions of Isis, the sludgy monkey-business of Old Man Gloom, the haunting drones of Mamiffer, the hardcore-tinged debauchery of Split Cranium and others, it’s hard to deny Turner’s musical prowess. So when Sumac was announced, everyone, including myself, was instilled with insurmountable excitement. Turner is joined by the equally proficient Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, etc) and Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), and the end-result is absolutely tremendous. Brimming with complexity and colossal heaviness, The Deal delivers the all the goods in a jam-packed 54-minute duration.
