“Drum and dulcimer-driven eco-terrorist black metal.” That’s certainly one way to describe Botanist, the one-man avant-garde project from Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Otrebor.

This latest track in the Botanist saga, titled “Stargazer,” will be making an appearance on the sixth upcoming release, IV: Flora, when it drops a couple of weeks into August. Hat tip to our friends at Tiny Mix Tapes for hosting the premiere of this incredibly haunting and beautiful track.

fall of the albatross enormous cloud

New York’s Fall of the Albatross are a peculiar band that sits confidently and comfortably at the crossroads of post-rock, jazz fusion, and mathcore. Their latest album Enormous Cloud acts as a treatise on challenging instrumental music, both aurally and technically, from the elegantly ethereal opener ‘Reality to Reverie, Reverie to Reality’ to the schizophrenic and jagged call-and-response of ‘In The Interest of Time.’ 

Being fans of weirdo prog freakouts, we’re excited to act as hosts to Enormous Cloud and all the havok and headscratching it’s sure to bring. Stream the album in its entirety after the jump.

Want
On the outskirts of a genre as experimental and diverse as metal, many different sounds can be found. Some lose cohesion often, resulting in works that are more experiment than music. Not so with Wreck & Reference. Their latest album, ‘Want‘, is shaping up to be an intriguing mix living on the borders between post-rock, electronics and abrasiveness. You can stream it in full over at Pitchfork, accompanied by eerily desolate videos of sand being poured into various vessels. Yes, we’re also scratching our heads.

When last we saw themSon  of Aurelius were surprising us all with their newfangled sound and maturity. Much more complex instrumentals were joined by surprisingly powerful clean vocals and the whole thing rang true with progressive ingenuity. We are extremely happy to announce that the excellency previously displayed seems to be the rule for this upcoming release. To prove our point, you can now stream a new track, titled ‘Long Ago’. Check it out after the jump!

the room colored charlatan

We’ve seen a slew of great releases via Subliminal Groove Records recently, a succession that is quickly gaining the young label a reputation for being home to standout acts in the heavy music scene. Indiana’s The Room Colored Charlatan are one such band, and they’re currently on the brink of releasing their sophomore LP, Primitives. The album is a nice slice of progressive metal that is heavily influenced by The Contortionist‘s landmark record Exoplanet, and in preparation for its release they’ve provided a full stream of the 41-minute effort which you can hear below:

Perturbator

Nearly a month ago we clued you in on Perturbator, the pseudonym of one James Kent. We told you about the down right sticky, retro-future vibe that oozes from every track and the promise held by his upcoming release, Dangerous Days. These are the tunes played on the backdrop of gritty, degenerate future-cities as leather clad hackers roam the streets in search of pleasure. The down right nasty synths are caught and molded via infectious beats, swerving from fast paced strobes to seizure inducing, deep grumbles. Now, a new track called Future Club is streaming and we can safely say it’s got Perturbator all over it.

serdce
About a month ago, SERDCE signed with our friends Blood Music and erupted into our attention with two brilliant tracks. Blending blistering guitars, dreamy passages and guttural vocals, those tracks caught our attention immediately. They were forward thinking, precisely performed and downright moving. Therefore, we are now very pleased to present you with yet another track from the upcoming album, Timelessness. This one is titled ‘Unique Path’ and you can stream it right here after the jump. Get to it!

Lun
Last week, we heard a track from David Maxim Micic‘s next venture; the long expected Destiny Potato album, Lun (which was supposed to be released by Century Media — wonder what happened there?). The track featured many of the staple Micic sound, including catchy breakdowns, djenty riffs and superb vocal support from  Aleksandra DjelmasTaking all of these facts into the account, the bar was certainly raised in terms of expectations. Now, Lun is not only available for purchase but is also streaming in full! You can listen to it right here, after the jump.
