How many bands get to twelve albums, and how many of them have their best albums be their most recent ones? 2012’s RIITIIR was an instant classic, and the follow-up In Times sounds like it’s going to be just as impressive. Check the teaser out after the jump.

Time flies. It was just over a year ago that I last got to talk about Murdock, one of my favourite upstart bands around and peddlers of a frantic mix of stop-start riffs and on-a-dime time changes (wonderfully described as ‘spazz-mongers’ in the press release), and oddly enough it was to tell let you guys know that the band had found a home at Destroy Everything, a newly founded sister label of Basick Records. Well, time passed and apparently circumstances changed as the label has just announced the band now find themselves nestled alongside the main body of the Basick Records family for the release of their debut album Dead Lung.

Early last year an album which we had been waiting a long time for was released. It was none other than Alaya‘s Thrones, a brilliant iteration of modern metal touched with exceptional vocals.

Melding an otherworldy blend of shoegaze, industrial, and black metal like no other band before them, Texas’ Pyramids croon through hazy dysphoric drones and Ambien-laced soundscapes that sound as if Altar of Plagues and Anathema collided in celebration of melancholia. I could pick more flowery language out of a thesaurus all day, but the fact of the matter is that Pyramids are a band you need to be hearing like five years ago.
