Old Man Gloom (Isis, Cave In, etc) have released a new track of their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, which is due out on November 11th via Profound Lore (CD/Digital) and SIGE Records (2XLP). The new track is entitled “The Lash” and it trudges along with bass-heavy grooves and cycling, sludgy riffs. Check out the track for yourself after the break.
Ex-Isis member Aaron Turner recently announced his newest musical venture between himself and Baptist drummer Nick Yacyshyn. The duo are calling themselves Sumac and have recently completed their first record, The Deal, which will be released via Profound Lore and SIGE Records in February 2015. The album was recorded by Mell Dettmer and the band themselves and was mixed by Kurt Ballou. Turner stated that he wanted to pursue Sumac as a fully functional band, with plans to play live in the near future and continue writing/recording thereafter. The bass work on the album was provided by Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, etc), who will hopefully become a touring member of the band when possible.
Turner also provided the track listing to the record, which can be seen below. Audio clips are expected to be released sometime next month.
Palms (ex-Isis, Deftones) have announced a string of U.S. tour dates that will commence this September.

Isis will re-release their classic Panopticon album next week, April 29th, via Ipecac Records. Mike Jussila remastered the record, which will also contain new artwork and a 12-page booklet. Aaron Turner and Aaron Harris had the following to say about the record:
The post-rock project featuring members of Isis and Deftones front man Chino Moreno, Palms have just released a music video for their song “Future Warrior.” This track comes off of Palms‘ debut, eponymous release which is available now. The video is odd, and not very simple like Chino’s last music video that I posted about yesterday. It’s very artistic and deep and I really like it. Check out the video below. Continue reading →
Bryant Clifford Meyer (Ex-Isis/Palms/Red Sparowes/etc) has unveiled his new minimalistic electronic project Pression, whose debut release UNA can be streamed on Bandcamp. I personally enjoy this kind of chill electonic/dub music so I’m all for this. You can stream the album if you wish after the jump.
The highly anticipated debut full length album from Palms (Deftones, Ex-Isis) is now available for streaming over at Spin.com. The album officially comes out on June 25th so here is opportunity to be induced in dreamy, post-metal pop bliss early. This album should satisfy fans of both Deftones and Isis. Check it out now.
Palms (Deftones, Ex-Isis) have released the official trailer for their upcoming self titled debut, which will hit store shelves on June 25th through Ipecac. Pre-orders for the new effort can be found here with a variety of bundles available. The “supergroup” will be playing a few shows in California with Crypts (ex These Arms Are Snakes) this Summer in support of the release. You can view the trailer and the tour dates after the jump.
Palms, the highly anticipated collaborative project from Chino Moreno (Deftones) and ex-Isis members Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer, has finally released a taste of what’s to come. Pitchfork is currently streaming the track “Patagonia” from their upcoming self titled debut which is due out on June 25th. The track is just what I expected this project to sound like; a culmination of the more melodious and ambient moments of Isis and Deftones. But that doesn’t mean the track exceeds my expectations for “Patagonia” is quite stellar. It’s totally entrancing and has a lot of that ambient Wavering Radiant era Isis sound I adore. You can stream the track at Pitchfork or stream it via Youtube below.
