Psychedelic doomsayers Windhand have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Grief’s Infernal Flower, over at Metal Hammer. Titled “Hyperion”, the track features a five-minutes of lurching, fuzz-ridden riffs, illuminating vocal melodies and hazy-eyed licks. Bassist Parker Chandler commented on the new tune:
“Hyperion started out as a bedroom recording that eventually made its way into sound checks, practices, etc. Compared to the rest of the album, I think it’s more stripped-down and straight forward.”
Stream the catchy jam now.
Grief’s Infernal Flower will be released on September 18 via Relapse Records.

Ævangelist will release their new album Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss next month.

I’ve loved everything the band has released since and I am super stoked to hear their new record. Well, Ævangelist have graced me with a rad new track titled “Levitating Stones,” which you can hear below. Continue reading

Since their first live performance, Vancouver based band Astrakhan has wowed many a music fan. Whether it’s a booking agent at the local theatre, a grizzled music industry veteran, or a 17 year old riff worshipping hesher child, praise for the band has been deservedly widespread.
The band formed from two respected Vancouver bands Old Roger and Crimson Root. After one unforgettable performance at the 2015 Armstrong Metal Fest, the band signed to War On Music Records to release their debut EP “A Tapestry of Scars and Scabs.” I got a chance to speak with Astrakhan’s bassist Dustin Toth about the band.
Your last ep “A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin” was released by War On Music records (3 Inches of Blood, Anciients, Bison, Cryptopsy, Gorguts). That’s a pretty stacked roster to say the least. What was it like to work with them? Continue reading

North Carolinian blackened thrash outfit All Hell have released a new track from their upcoming album, The Red Sect. Titled “Venomous”, the new jam unleashes an onslaught of eviscerating thrash, forged in the fire’s of Hell, that is propelled by some raspy, acidic vocals. Check it out for yourself after the break.

Industrialized supergroup Corrections House (Neurosis, Yakuza, etc) have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album and follow-up to 2013’s Last City Zero. The new record will be titled Know How To Carry A Whip (artwork above) and will be released on October 23 via Neurot Recordings. Recorded by the band’s own Sanford Parker (Minsk) and minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury, in Vietnam, Know How To Carry A Whip will feature 45-minutes of new material. Guitarist Scott Kelly (Neurosis) offered the following comments:
“The music is simultaneously suffocating and freeing,…but it also has the energy of a whirling dervish.”
Fairbury elaborates on the production:
“The songs typically originate from the loops and beats that are generated from Sanford, then the skeleton of riffs are built by Scott and Bruce. Mike IX adds his profound observations and I do the final production. These new songs are far more developed and fluid then the first record. There is a prevailing groove that dominates.”
The album’s track listing can be found after the break.
