tombs savage gold

At long last, new Tombs! The New York-based experimental black metal group reached widespread critical acclaim for their 2011 record Path of Totality, and the three years since then has felt long and empty. The gap is now being closed as the band readies the release of their new record Savage Gold, out June 10th through Relapse Records. The first single from the album ‘Edge of Darkness’ has been made available for streaming along with accompanying video detailing the extraordinary physical copies, and you can check it out below.

wovenwar

Wovenwar, the new group featuring members of As I Lay Dying with Oh, Sleeper‘s Shane Blay, have finally come forth with a full song for streaming. The possibly Lambesis-written update on As I Lay Dying’s website was correct; this new project is much more radio-friendly! That doesn’t have to be a bad thing so long as the songs are great, and their first single ‘All Rise’ shows plenty of promise in that regard.

Italian alt-metal band KLOGR (pronounced Kay-log-are, if you can believe it) are likely a band you’re not too familiar with, so allow us to introduce you. With a hard rock musical style that can fit in with groups like Lacuna Coil and Karnivool alike with the globally conscious subject matter made savvy by Gojira, the group are set to release their new album Black Snow on April 29th. We’ve got a sneak peak of the record with a new track titled ‘Guilty and Proud,’ which you can stream below.

SERDCE - Timeless

Blood Music sure has been making headlines in the last week or so. With the reveal that their Mystery Release is none other than Cloudkicker, the label has already set records for being the first label to press a Creative Commons work without seeking the artist’s permission. Now, Blood Music are here to prove that they are not all about controversy: SERDCE from Belarus, signed under the label, are just the ticket to do so. The band is currently streaming two new tracks over at our friends No Clean Singing. Go check it out!

Mastodon-new-album
Either by some sort of mistake or act of ballsiness, someone at 98.9 The Rock has leaked a track off of the hotly anticipated new Mastodon album Once More Round the Sun. The song is called ‘High Road,’ and after only one listen I’m already digging it more than the bulk of tracks off of The Hunter. Comments from the band about returning to a “vintage” Mastodon sound are ringing true here. Listen to it right now below before it inevitably gets yanked. There is autoplay, so be warned.

Swans - To Be Kind

Perhaps it’s because it took so long for me to fully digest all of the insane beauty and perfect chaos that was The Seer, but it does not feel like it’s already been two years since Swans released their last album. Michael Gira’s experimental post-punk madhouse are about to unleash yet another monstrous record though, the almost certainly ironically-titled To Be Kind, so prepare your cranial cavity appropriately.

Recorded once again with a hand from The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir contributing to the score, these Greek symphonic death metallers are promising yet another addition to their discography of epic-sounding brutality.

thantifaxath

More and more bands are pulling from the atonal chaos set in motion by bands like Portal and Deathspell Omega, and I couldn’t be happier. If it’s dark, noisey, and technical, we’re all about it. Thantifaxath are a band cut from the same cloth as the aforementioned progenitors, right down to the anonymous mystique the three-piece carries. From under their robes, this group weaves a unique spin on the atmospheric black metal trend, building off genre cliches and turning them on their head in a fashion not dissimilar to last year’s Altar of Plagues swansong Teethed Glory and Injury. Thantifaxath’s new album Sacred White Noise is now streaming, and it’s an early contender as one of the best releases from 2014.
