Lane and I have been enamored with Old Man Gloom for a good while now. We love the ape-inspired sludgy mayhem and all that comes with it. Well, Noisey recently released a forty-five minute documentary about the band and it’s pretty great. You can watch the entire doc after the jump. If you’ve ever seen any of Noisey’s past docs, you know that they do not half ass anything. Check it out. Continue reading
Old Man Gloom (Ex-Isis, Converge, Cave In) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, over at Noisey. The new track is the six minute “Predators” and being subjected to its sludge-ridden riffs, which are propelled by Caleb Scolfield’s (Cave In, Zozobra) gruff vocals, is like being flattened under a train repeatedly. Feel free to stream the new track after the break and check out previously released track, “The Lash”, if you missed it.
The Ape of God will be released on November 11th. A documentary film on the band is slated to premiere this Thursday, October 9th. The trailer for that film can be seen after the break as well.

Aborted have released their covers of Converge’s “Concubine” and Suffocation’s “Funeral Inception” for your ears’ enjoyment. The covers come off of the deluxe edition of their recently released album, The Necrotic Manifesto, which can be streamed here. You can check out the covers and the originals after the break.
Converge, easily one of the best bands of all time, released their highly-appreciated All We Love We Leave Behind and blew everyone away. It’s been more than two years since the album was release, but the band has just released a music video for “Precipice” and the albums title track “All We Love We Leave Behind” jointly.
The video is a beautiful representation of something that I don’t understand. I love the video, but I don’t understand what’s going on. Check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
One of my favorite record labels in hardcore and metal music today is Deathwish Inc. (home of Deafheaven, Converge, Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Punch and many more). And over the past few days they’ve been teasing and counting down to a major announcement of some kind. None of us knew what it was, many assumed it could be an album release of some sort but the label dropped no hints until the announcement came today in the form of the picture you see above you.

At a Loss Recordings always seems to have a knack for the unusual when it comes to the music they release. When I use the term “unusual” here, I intend for it to be a good thing. They have put out music from the uniquely odd types like The Body, Assembly of Light, Stinking Lizaveta, and so on. The newest addition to At a Loss’s roster is South Carolina experimental punk outfit, Burnt Books. Their self titled debut encompasses elements of hardcore punk, noise rock and others into a well executed onslaught of schizoid insanity.
