Old Man Gloom have premiered the official video for their track “The Lash”, from their 2014 double album The Ape of God, over at Decibel, The clip follows a nomadic figure (who turns out to be an ape, naturally) engaging in some self-immolation ritual, only to reborn as a strange hooded figure. The video is odd, no doubt. Feel free to watch the clip after the break.
Old Man Gloom will also be tearing up the West Coast starting this Thursday. Those dates can be found below.
Brooklyn instrumental metal outfit, Sannhet, have premiered their forthcoming album Revisionist over at Pitchfork. The album will officially be released on March 3 via The Flenser and can be ordered at this location. The album picks up where Known Flood left off and continues to explore beyond that. Elements of post-metal, black metal, shoegaze, post-rock and a plethora of other styles and nuances can be heard on the record, but still defies most basic categorization. Stream the album for yourself over at Pitchfork now.
Griever have premiered their debut full length, Our Love Is Different, over at Lambgoat. The album is officially out today via Vitriol Records and can be purchased at this location.

Young Widows have premiered the official video for their track “King Sol”, from their 2014 album Easy Pain, over at Noisey. The video depicts a man’s fascination with a massive sun of apocalyptic proportions and some striking visuals. You can view the clip after the break.

I was introduced to the eccentric yet virulent sounds of Muck sometime last year, when a friend randomly sent me the link to their 2012 full length, Slaves. The Icelandic quartet’s music immediately struck a chord with me with its erratic, complex instrumentation and general wackiness. Obvious reference points would be Coalesce, Botch and the like. But upon further inspection, one could see this wasn’t just rehashed mathcore sensibilities. Slaves definitely had a personality all its own. Muck return this year with the record’s follow up and it most certainly delivers. But rather than just rewrite Slaves, Muck opt for something a little familiar yet different at the same time. Much like its predecessor, Your Joyous Future is a unique animal.
Pyramids are a band that I have always found myself listening to when I had no idea what kind of music I wanted to hear. The bands sound is so weird and so varied that it is instantly interesting.

The track is titled “The Substance Of Grief Is Not Imaginary” and it’s fucking phenomenal. Check out the track below. You’ll listen to it three times just to begin to take it all in. Continue reading

Rad hardcore Danish powerhouse Halshug will thrust their fierce Blodets Bånd next week and they are currently streaming a badass new track titled “Knæl.” Now, I don’t speak this bands native language, but I don’t need to because I do speak the international language of hardcore punk. Halshug are a force to be reckoned with and their music should be jammed at high volume. Check out “Knæl” below. Or fuck off. Continue reading
Hiram-Maxim will release their debut album early next month and the band has unloaded a massive new track titled “One.” The track is one hell of a crusher, coming in at more than eleven minutes and it holds strong throughout.
