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.
SUMAC, the band formed by members of Botch, Isis and Baptists will be releasing their highly anticipated debut album The Deal next month and the band is currently streaming a down-tuned and dirty track titled “Blight’s End Angel.” The track was premiered over on Rolling Stone, but I have embedded it after the jump for you all to enjoy. Get busy streamin’. Continue reading →
Sumac, the new project featuring Isis‘ Aaron Turner and Baptists‘ Nick Yacyshyn (and features bass work from Russian Circles‘ Brian Cook), have premiered a new track from their forthcoming debut album The Deal over at Noisey. The new track is the nine-minute “Thorn In The Lion’s Paw” and it is, to quote Noisey, heavier than a bag of hammers. The track starts off with creeping piano chords that set the stage for a huge, lurching riff to come into view. As the song progresses, the instrumentation picks up pace and becomes sludgier and more volatile (much like that of sister band Old Man Gloom) and eventually ends in a piano-accompanied, noisy yet melodic dirge. Just check it out for yourself over at Noisey now.
The Deal will be released on February 3rd via Profound Lore and SIGE.
Earlier this month (November 11), post-metal supergroup Old Man Gloom released their latest offering, The Ape of God. Or should we say, offerings? Comprising 90 minutes worth or material, The Ape of God is in fact two separate records under the same title. Causing even more confusion, the tricksters in Old Man Gloom also pulled one over on the press by first releasing an eight-track “bogus version” as the official promotional album. American Aftermath recently caught up with members Nate Newton and Santos Montano to discuss The Ape of God. While clearing some things up, the following interview is also, of course, weird and hilarious. What else would you expect? Continue reading →
Old Man Gloom will be releasing not one, but two new albums, both under the Ape Of God title, tomorrow and if you can’t wait that long, both of the albums are currently streaming! That’s right, Old Man Gloom in all of their gloomy sludge-ness streaming for you right now. I have listened to both albums now and I can honestly say that they are both phenomenal. Check out the streams after the jump. Continue reading →
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.

According to a recent Facebook update, Old Man Gloom( Isis, Converge, Cave In, etc) are in the studio as we speak working on new music. This new material, whatever it may be, will be hot on the heels of last year’s NO. I know you are excited for the impending awesomeness, so, take a moment to listen to NO after the break to prepare yourself.
