Polish black metallers Blaze of Perdition have debuted a new track from their forthcoming third full-length, Near Death Revelations, which is due out on June 26 via Agonia Records. The new hellacious hymn in question is the nine-minute “Królestwo Niczyje”, which effectively combines blistering, fiery instrumentation with haunting atmospheres. You can check out the track for yourself after the break.

After their tour with The Mountain Goats was cut short due to an injury sustained by drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, Ides of Gemini have announced that they will return to the road again to further support their 2014 release, Old World New Wave. Early next month, the band will play a set of shows alongside experimental kings Oxbow, Crucialfest in Salt Lake City and the Demon Lung record release show in Las Vegas. Ex-Black Math Horseman drummer Sash Popovic will be filling in for Johnston-Gibson for the show dates. Then starting July 14, the band will be joined by Clay Rendering for a new handful of shows. Guitarist J. Bennett issued the following statement:
“After the disappointment of having to drop off the Mountain Goats tour last month, we’re looking forward to getting out on the road again. Unfortunately, Kelly’s injury is still healing so she won’t be able to join us for the June shows with Oxbow and Demon Lung or our appearance at Cruficalfest in Salt Lake. The good news is that our friend Sash Popovic, formerly of [singer/bassist] Sera’s [Timms] old band, Black Math Horseman, will be filling in for those. He’s a killer drummer and a great guy, so we’re very thankful that he’s agreed to help us out. If all goes according to plan, Kelly should be back in action for the July run with Clay Rendering.”

Swedish cult industrial black metal outfit Diabolicum have premiered a new track from their long-awaited new album, Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows), over at No Clean Singing. The track is titled “Salvation Through Vengeance” and it storms right out of hell’s gate with menacing, blackened guitars and mechanized drums that are propelled by Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth’s maniacal ululations. It’s five minutes of sacrilegious heaviness. Stream it for yourself at this location.
Ia Pazuzu (The Abyss Of The Shadows) will be released on July 7 via Code666. Pre-orders are available here.

Nautical doom metal band Ahab have announced the release of their new album The Boats Of Glen Carrig. The album is to be released in late August and it is sure to be spectacular. Ahab have always been an interesting and amazing band and I am sure that The Boats Of Glen Carrig will be great. The album is based on William Hope Hodgson’s ‘The Boats Of The Glen Carrig.’ Sounds pretty rad to me. Check out the art at the top of the post and the track list below. Continue reading

The band is streaming a new track titled “Cloak Of Ashes,” which you can now hear below. It’s spectacular. Continue reading
