Native Construct guitars

I’ve been waiting for this album for 3 years. When they posted their playthrough video of a demo version of “Chromatic Aberration” 3 years ago, I was immediately hooked on this band consisting of Berklee students called Native Construct. Now, lo and behold, the album is done and they’ve posted a playthrough video of a full track titled “The Spark of The Archon”, and my, it’s some delicious prog goodness.

It’s safe to say we really, really like Torche. We’ve posted about the band every time another track from Restarter surfaced in the lead up to it’s release last month. It’s a great goddamn album and our beloved editor Nick wrapped his thoughts up perfectly in his sublime review. It is, alas, time for another post about Torche so let’s get to it. Yesterday, a beautiful animated video for ‘Annihilation Affair’ hit the Interwebs and yeah, it looks fantastic but the vibe it gives off is a bit suspect. Get the video and some words about it after the jump.

Wintersun Live

Wintersun take their Time to release albums, this is known. Time I was supposed to release years earlier than it did, and Time II was supposed to release within the same year as Time I. It’s been more than two years, and Time II is nowhere to be seen. We had heard a live version of a song from Time II earlier, but now we’ve heard another new one! It’s called “Forest”, and it’s about, well, forests, I guess. Check it out after the jump, because it’s pretty cool.

During the tail end of 2014, Deftones/Death Grips supergroup Team Sleep took to the studio to begin recording their upcoming album, the title of which has yet to be determined. With a proposed 2015 release date, fans have begun to speculate as to when we can expect this record to drop. Amidst confirmation of the band returning to the studio later this month, it doesn’t seem likely that we can expect a finished product anytime soon. However, as a consolation prize, the band have released a series of teasers in the form of various social media posts over the past few weeks, the most notable of which comes in the form of a two minute long video released recently by guitarist Todd Wilkinson. Creep it after the jump.

I don’t need to list the members of this super-group again, right? It’s everyone! In any case, earlier this year the super-gang made their first live performance down under at Soundwave Festival. Footage from that show and what I must assume are other occasions have no been aggregated to the first video for the band. The track is ‘Curb Crusher’, which makes me very happy since it’s one of my favorites from the album. Over the jump we go!
