My postblackened homies Vattnet Viskar have been on a spree of awesomeness ever since they signed to Century Media last year and released their debut LP. The band is about to embark upon a radical tour of the US alongside Pallbearer and Tombs. If you have any dignity, you better get your asses out to one or more of these shows and support the fuck out of Vattnet Viskar, Pallbearer and Tombs. For real, though. This will be life changing. Check out the dates below. Continue reading
After recently completing a North American run with Deafheaven and Wreck and Reference, and with a European trek supporting Yob on the horizon, Pallbearer have announced another string of North American tour dates that will commence in October. Support on most dates of the tour will come from the likes of Tombs and Vattnet Viskar. You can check out all of the upcoming tour dates after the break.
Pallbearer’s Foundations of Burden will be released on August 19th via Profound Lore.
In addition to their forthcoming North American tour with Trash Talk, Retox and Shining, The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced the second leg of the tour. These new handful of dates will feature support from poppy math rockers Tera Melos and black metal outfit Vattnet Viskar. You can check out all current tour dates after the break.
This has been an amazing year for music. Not just metal, but a great year for all styles and genres. I have enjoyed so many different styles of music this year as well as many, many artists within each style and it was a real pain for me to make this list. I keep this list simply to full-length albums (or LPs, kids). I used to keep it strictly metal when it came to this list and I would weed out rock for its own list, but this year I included non-metal stuff on my list as well. Not a lot of non-metal, but some nonetheless. Continue reading
Mis amigos de black metal Vattnet Viskar have released their first music video for their song “Breath Of The Almighty” which comes off of their debut full-length Sky Swallower, out now on Century Media Records. This is a very interesting video, as it’s dark and very abstract. It’s weird, but I enjoyed it. Check it out below and be sure to pick up Sky Swallower right now! Vattnet Viskar will also be hitting the road with Intronaut for a short run. You can see those dates after the jump as well. Continue reading
Just like the new Chelsea Wolfe record, Pitchfork is exclusively streaming the debut LP from New England’s Vattnet Viskar, Sky Swallower. The album officially comes out next Tuesday September 3rd but who wants to wait that long? Head over to Pitchfork and stream it in advance. Oh, and be sure to check out Vattnet Viskar on their mini-tour with Intronaut next month. Dates have been provided below.
Vattnet Viskar’s guitarist Chris Alfieri is a very good friend of mine and he has done work with us in the past with year-end list, stellar mixtapes and even telling us why he no longer listens to The Black Album. He is an awesome dude and his band is one of the sickest, most bestest bands ever and I recently sat down to have a few words with Mr. Alfieri, my black metal brotha from anotha motha. Check out the interview after the jump. Continue reading
My Northeastern post-blackened-doom homies Vattnet Viskar make me really proud. Last year they signed to Century Media Records, then announced their debut full-length will be released this fall and now they have unveiled a brilliant new track by the name of “Fog Of Apathy.” I love these guys and I love how they have matured as musicians and I am highly anticipating the release of Sky Swallower. Go stream “Fog Of Apathy” right now via Stereogum and stream their self-titled EP after the jump. Continue reading
My personal favorite post-black metal doomers Vattnet Viskar, who signed to Century Media Records last May, have announced plans to release their debut full-length album this fall. The album, titled Sky Swallower, will be released on September 3rd and will feature eight tracks of pulverizing blackened doom.
In a show of anticipation, Vattnet Viskar will be hitting the road for a short run in July where they will be playing Sky Swallower in its entirety. After the jump you can stream Vattnet Viskar‘s 2012 eponymous EP and check out the bands upcoming tour dates with I Am Heresy and Astronoid. Continue reading
2012 was an amazing year for me. I’ve already put out two of my Best Of lists and I have two more to go. 2012 was great year for breakout EPs and 7″ releases. A lot of killer bands put out spectacular EPs this year and so I decided to put together a list of those also. Here goes. Continue reading
Well, it is getting dangerously close to the middle of the year and you know what that means. Asshole bloggers like me start talking about their favorite albums this year so far. Well, I’m not any different from any other asshole, so here is my current favorite albums of the year so far. These are not in any particular order. These are just unbelievable albums that I have learned about and jammed out to these past six months. [Continue...]
I have talked about Vattnet Viskar many times before and I am proud to call these blackened filthmongers my friends. They released a self-titled EP in March on Broken Limbs Recordings and now it has been announced that Vattnet Viskar has officially signed to Century Media Records. Wow. This is insane. Century Media, who currently don’t have very many black metal artists on their roster, wasn’t something I foresaw in this bands future but I am stoked for them and I am very proud of them. Stream their new EP below and follow them on their Facebook page. Congrats, dudes!
My homeboys in Hetfield & Hetfield have been working on some new material and they recently hooked me up with an exclusive premiere of a new track titled “Mega Shark.” This track is amazing, it’s a big step up from their album Tidal Wave Dreams, which I loved. I can’t wait to hear some more new material. Until then however, you can enjoy “Mega Shark” below. Get into it.
Hetfield & Hetfield will be hitting the road with Vattnet Viskar next month. You can see the flyer and dates after the jump. [Continue...]
