creepers lush

Apparently not content with just being part of Deafheaven’s ridiculous touring schedule over the past year, the San Francisco band’s guitarist Shiv Mehra and drummer Dan Tracy – alongside fellow musicians Varun Mehra and Christopher Natividad – have announced the upcoming Creepers debut record, in addition to premiering album opener ‘Stuck‘.

myrkur

There’s been a steady and gentle buzz building regarding enigmatic post-black metal act Myrkur. This Scandinavian one-woman act takes the blackened atmospheric work and lush melodies of acts like Alcest and Deafheaven and shrouds them in feminine mystique with interesting results. If you like your black metal unafraid to venture into clean vocal territory (complete with layered choir tracks!) with no shortage of melody, Myrkur’s self-titled EP needs to be on your radar.

mastodon ft gibby haynes

As a regular viewer of Adult Swim, I’ve been anticipating the new single from Mastodon and Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes for weeks now due to the regular promos the network has been airing for their Adult Swim Singles Program, which has also recently offered brand new tracks from Deafheaven and Sleep. The new Mastodon track — titled ‘Atlanta‘ — has finally been made available, and it’s nothing at all like your typical Mastodonian prog-sludge jam; we’re talking straight up hardcore punk here. It’s pretty obvious why this is a one-off track that was never intended to be a part of any concrete Mastodon release. Even still, the track slays. Stream it after the jump.

deafheaven-kettle

An outdoor, sunny day environment is not exactly what we would call an “appropriate” setting for black metal/post-metal/shoegaze act Deafheaven, but here we are and there they were performing at Pitchfork Music Festival 2014 under a nice blue sky (I guess you could say they were Sunbathers that day).

Here’s a live performance of a brand new track from the band, “From the Kettle Unto the Coil.”

myrkur

Black metal has no shortage of one-man bands, but finding a woman in black metal — especially going it solo — can be a task. Relapse Records managed to discover one such act out of Denmark going by the name of Myrkur. The promo materials released so far tout the act as being for fans of Deafheaven, Alcest, and Ulver — tell-tale signs that Myrkur’s breed of black metal will be plenty ethereal and atmospheric, if not slightly experimental. The first bit of music from Myrkur’s self-titled Relapse debut comes in the form of the single ‘Nattens Barn,‘ which can be heard below.

RoN

Rivers Of Nihil have taken the metal world by storm with their debut full-length The Conscious Seed Of Light, which came out last year. They have ascended the ranks, going from a relatively underground band to being known as the next great thing in death metal music. I caught up with Brody Uttley at their Fort Lauderdale stop on their tour with Whitechapel, Devildriver, Carnifex, Revocation, and Fit For An Autopsy, to chat about getting naked, the new album, and why St. Louis is horrible for touring bands.

Wolves Stream

Media outlets are growing weirder by the minute. Ten years ago you would have never seen NPR stream a band like Deafheaven, or something of the like. Now, apparently, the New York Times want to get in on all the blacktion (black metal action), because they’re streaming the new Wolves In The Throne Room record, which actually isn’t black metal at all. You can stream it below!
