Way back last year, we informed you that Minnesotans The Crinn were gearing up for the release of new material. It’s taken a while, but the band has finally delivered on the premise, breaking the four year-long hiatus since their full-length debut. In fact, all of a sudden we’re getting a new album announcement and a new song! Their follow-up to the most excellent Dreaming Saturn will be titled Shadowbreather, and while a release date hasn’t been given yet, the band did unveil the sweet cover art shown above. What’s more important is that ‘Silent Betrayer’, the first offering from the album, is a clear indication that we’re in for a serious treat. You can check it out right after the jump!

Now, like most of the bands we feature here, there are polarising opinions about this lot around the metaphorical Heavy Blog staff table. The band have come a long way from the Count Your Blessings days and while Sempiternal contained some good tracks, the direction the band have taken is, questionable at best, but that can wait. Check the new video after the jump. View Full Article »

ERRA - Dreamcatcher

Last year was a very good year for Erra, especially around these parts. Augment made its way into several of our writers year end lists, mine included, with their take on metalcore – one with layers of lavish instrumentation, melody and some catchy as hell tunes. News from the bands Facebook teased at something big happening and, for anyone with half a brain and Sumerian Records on Instagram, it was quite apparent what was coming. More information and new music after the jump. View Full Article »
