It’s no secret that the Heavy Blog staff holds a special place in their heart for doom and sludge. This year has been fantastic for the sub-genre so far and it seems as if the momentum is going to be preserved in the fast approaching 2015. One of the best outfits of recent years to operate within the sound have been Black Sheep Wall, releasing a brilliant LP and EP in the past two years. The band have now announced that they will be releasing another album, early next year. Head on over the jump for full details!

ScottSunn
When it was announced that avant-garde composer Scott Walker would be collaborating with drone-doom titans Sunn O))), the general reaction was one of intrigue. Walker had appeared on the track “Alice” from Sunn O)))‘s album Monoliths & Dimensions, so the opportunity to hear this match-up over the course of a full length project tantalized the imaginations of experimentally inclined listeners. The final project, entitled Soused, can now be purchased through 4AD Records here, and in addition, Scott O))) has released a video for the opening track, “Brando,” which can be viewed after the jump.

EnterShikari_Mindsweep
Enter Shikari are one of the most polarizing bands I can think of. You either love their signature blend of dub/electro and metal or you hate it. Quite frankly I think it’s cool; I used to be into dubstep heavily  a few years ago, and the band uses just enough of it to keep me coming back. Anyways, the band’s new album The Mindsweep is set for a 2015 release, but you can hear the first single ‘The Last Garrison’ now! Check it out after the jump!

Remember that new song by mathcore stalwarts The Crinn we posted about yesterday? Well, the band released another song off of their forthcoming sophomore LP, Shadowbreather, mere hours afterwards. You can stream the song over at No Clean Singing. This one’s titled ‘Endless,’ and it might as well be about my endless excitement at the prospect of hearing the album. Head on over the jump for more opinions.

We here at Heavy Blog Is Heavy have done our damned best at keeping you in the loop regarding Black Crown Initiate and their much anticipated eOne record The Wreckage Of Stars.

Now you can ignore whatever we have said previously and make up your own damn mind regarding this (incredible) metal release. Full stream after the jump folks! View Full Article »

Crowbar_Clip
NOLA Sludge/Doom titans Crowbar have dropped a spoopy new video for ‘Symmetry in White’, the title track to their newest album of crushingly heavy swamp sludge, which is mercifully free of fat naked dudes or twerkers. It does have a nun with bleeding eyes though. The song is also 4:20 long. Blaze it. In related news, the band has also announced that they plan to team up with veteran metalcore act Unearth and rising prog-death stars Black Crown Initiate for a string of dates at the end of the year fittingly titled the Symmetry in Winter tour. Check out the full dates and video after the jump!

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!

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 »
