Just this past week we saw how important the ACLU still is. One of the first to confront the so called "Muslim ban" enacted by the indifferent pen of Donald Trump, it began the long and arduous legal battle against this administration. With not only the presidency but also Congress and Senate painted in the most extreme and reckless red imaginable, their work will grow seven-fold; now they must take on the legislative branch instead. Thus, and despite of the already remarkable success their fundraising has seen in the past week, Bandcamp's contribution to the ACLU is admirable. We're here to do our share; below you'll find a list of artists that are worthy of your support on this Friday.
For folks who lament the decline of post metal, we seem to be getting a lot of great recommendations lately. A Constant Knowledge of Death are one of those examples, mixing expansive and delicate silences with furious peaks that draw on black and post metal for their structure. The band are connected to a different project, Vivid Illusion, which we had covered last yer. Quite like that project, A Constant Knowledge of Death are all about oppressiveness and its release, the highs and lows that emotional music an invoke. To create these, they utilize not only the staple rise/fall/rise structure of post metal but also spoken word, electronics, samples and more. The group are gearing up for Vol. II Organic Emotions, coming on September 30th and we're beyond excited to be premiering the first single from the album. Head on below to check it out!
