“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.
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.
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.
We’re gonna beat this Entombedcore horse well past its expiration date. Buckle in, folks.
Trap Them have been teasing us with a selection of goliath riffs and pissed off chaos from their much hyped about record Blissfucker for weeks now, and it’s finally time to experience the opus in its entirety thanks to Noisey.
When last we saw them, Son 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!
