PORD: Exclusive Stream Of Entire New LP Live At Scene Point Blank All Month Wild European Tour Underway

September 2nd, 2014

With the release of their long-time-coming second LP, Wild, out now via Solar Flare Records, and as their European tour in support of the album underway, French noise rock détachement PORD now let loose the entire album with an exclusive featured stream at US music webzine, Scene Point Blank. From the sprawling backwoods and farmlands of rural Lozère, PORD displays a caustic but cohesive style of noise rock output on Wild, the album showing a renewed musical evolution since earlier recordings, and the band’s raging delivery here hinting at straight rock and roll on a number of songs. With a faster pace and precise execution, their taut and aggressive delivery remains intact throughout the nearly forty-minute venture, which was recorded at Rec Studio in Geneva with Serge Morattel (Knut, Tantrum, Ventura).

American doom/rock outlet The Obelisk praised Wild, issuing, “Not short on atmosphere but sacrificing nothing in terms of efficiency in their pummel, PORD unveil a vicious strain of noise that’s anchored by deep low end and positioned sonically for righteous defiance.” American Aftermath hooked the album up as, “40 minutes of intense, noise laden rock and roll that would make Amphetamine Reptile blush… dirty, rumbling bass lines and sparse, dissonant guitars that eventually lead into a hard rock stampede hellbent on causing blunt-force trauma.” And Last Rites webzine comes in heavy: “This French trio has been making blistering, grinding noise rock for a dozen years… Their longevity leads to a tightness only achievable through hundreds and hundreds of hours of playing; the jumps are sharp as knives, cutting time signatures and musical motifs like the deftest of surgeons… Wild is a dirty album in all the ways that make noise rock such a visceral and inviting listen.”

For all of September, Scene Point Blank is featuring an exclusive stream of Wild on their front page HERE and RIGHT HERE.

With the first gig having taken place at Freakshow Festival this weekend past, the bulk of PORD’s Wild European Tour kicks off late next week, running from September 12th straight through October 11th, with two final shows confirmed at the end of October/beginning of November.

Wild is available on CD HERE and on black or swamp green/bone splatter vinyl HERE.

THE GREAT SABATINI Releases Yet Another Video From Recent LP; New Eastern North American Tour Announced

September 1st, 2014

Montreal’s noise/sludge rock ringleaders, THE GREAT SABATINI, have just pulled the fifth official video from their Dog Years LP out of their hat, letting “The Royal We” loose into the crowd, while also declaring another new tour in support of the album.

In the ongoing outbreak of videos for their early June-released third album, Dog Years, already including “Akela,” “Periwinkle Love Hammer,” “Munera” and “Guest Of Honour,” THE GREAT SABATINI filmed the latest at a recent gig among their massive, ongoing tour schedule — from loading in, to getting loaded, to unloading onto the crowd, with “The Royal We,” playing RIGHT HERE.

THE GREAT SABATINI will also reload and fire into the US again later this month, with another widespread incursion in support of Dog Years. The Dog Years Fall Tour 2014 will kick off with two shows in Canada before hitting eighteen Eastern American cities through the first week of October.

Dog Years was recorded, mixed and mastered by Sean Pearson (Cursed, Shallow North Dakota), and boasts THE GREAT SABATINI’s raw, unpolished approach to capture n act with years of accumulated experience touring, writing and recording together. The aim was to create a hi-fi document with all of their lo-fi sensibilities, grit and live energy intact, and the results are astoundingly destructive. French noise/metal label, Solar Flare Records, released the album on CD, digital and LP formats, the latter available on both black and transparent red vinyl; place orders through Solar Flare Records HERE and via the band HERE. And stream the entire Dog Years album via Decibel Magazine AT THIS LOCATION.

THE GREAT SABATINI Dog Years Fall Tour 2014:
9/17/2014 Petit Campus – Montreal, QC
9/18/2014 Sneaky Dees – Toronto, ON
9/19/2014 The Lair – Buffalo, NY
9/20/2014 The Mr. Roboto Project – Pittsburgh, PA
9/21/2014 Grandbar – Chicago, IL
9/22/2014 TBA – Appleton, WI
9/23/2014 The Habitat – Duluth, MN
9/24/2014 The Triple Rock – Minneapolis, MN
9/25/2014 West Wing – Omaha, NE
9/26/2014 Vandals – Kansas City, MO
9/27/2014 Blind Bob’s – Dayton, OH
9/28/2014 Three Kings Bar – Cincinnati, OH

10/06/2014 O’Briens – Allston, MA

“The fact that The Great Sabatini pull all of these disparate ingredients and influences together into one cohesive album is impressive. This isn’t controlled chaos, it’s a bacchanalia of the bizarre. 4/5″ – About.com

“The Montreal band’s AmRep-style noise  is energetic enough, often played atop a propulsive d-beat…” – Decibel

“The production on the record is also excellent; courtesy of Sean Pearson (Cursed), the sound is bloody raw with just enough of a stinging, acerbic edge to keep the listener wincing. Dog Years is an example of potential come to thunderous fruition. 8/10″ – Exclaim!

“…a raw and unpolished collection of eclectic, metallic anthems that call to mind the heaviest of the Amphetamine Reptile roster with a grumpier, more eccentric twist… a filthy little album that will have your head bobbing violently to the point of cervical fracture. 8/10″ – American Aftermath

“The Great Sabatini pushes the boundaries of their take on progressive sludge. The band half-jokingly calls what they play ‘swamp trench arithmetic’, but the description fits. Dog Years falls somewhere on the scale between Mastodon and The Mars Volta.” – Echoes And Dust

“The Great Sabatini are a band for people who just love to wallow in the utter chaos of not knowing what the hell you’re going to get thrown at you next. Dog Years is for people who like their music to stink of the stale blood of the maniacs responsible for creating it. Job done then.” – Puregrainaudio

“With Dog Years The Great Sabatini walk that perceptive line between brilliance and mad-as-a-hatter. It might take some time and effort to fully appreciate all the depth and nuance to be found but as they say, all good things happen in their own good time. Now let’s get crazy!” – Scratch The Surface

IDES OF GEMINI: Pre-Order Bundles Now Available As Old World New Wave Release Day Draws Near

August 29th, 2014

As the release date for IDES OF GEMINI’s brand new album, Old World New Wave, draws near, Neurot Recordings is pleased to announce a host of preorder bundles, now live and available.

For CD orders, point your browser HERE and for T-shirt bundles, point your browser at THIS LOCATION.

Don’t forget to turn up and zone out to “The Chalice & The Blade,” still streaming at Noisey HERE and “The Adversary” courtesy of Revolver Magazine at THIS LOCATION.

IDES OF GEMINI features Bennett, drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson and the haunting vocal prowess of singer/bassist Sera Timms, also of West Coast dark-psych conjurors Black Mare. The follow-up to the band’s 2012 Constantinople debut, which Pitchfork christened “darkly beautiful,” and Terrorizer likened to, “a metallic-filtered kinship to Cocteau Twins and Mazzy Star,” Old World New Wave was recorded at Valley Recording in Burbank, California, engineered and mixed by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig), mastered by Grammy award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer) and boasts the striking hand-drawn cover art of Johnston-Gibson. Notes Timms of their latest manifestation, “For Old World New Wave we all really coalesced as a band, and were able to work off one another’s strengths. J came up with the basic concept and musical framework of the album, and Kelly and I gave it form and identity. For me, my own personal musical identity, taste, preferences etc. were eclipsed by the power of the music which worked as an animate force unto itself — so much so that I cannot listen to any of it objectively, or tell you if it’s good or bad, but I can tell you that it’s distinctively IDES OF GEMINI.”

IDES OF GEMINI will grace the stage this Fall with a pair of live performances, the first serving as the trio’s official record release gala in Los Angeles, the second playing Intronaut’s tenth anniversary show. Additional IDES rituals will to be announced in the coming weeks.

IDES OF GEMINI Live:
9/19/2014 The Complex – Los Angeles, CA IDES OF GEMINI Record Release Show w/ Ancestors, Glaare, Maja D’Aoust (as The Oracle) [info]
12/18/2014 The Roxy – Los Angeles, CA [info]

Old World New Wave will be released on CD and digitally via Neurot Recordings and on vinyl via SIGE Records on September 16th, 2014.

COLOMBIAN NECKTIE: West Coast Sludgecore Merchants Stream “Kevin’s Song” At Skulls ‘N’ Bones; Twilight Upon Us Full-Length Out Now

August 29th, 2014

Today Los Angeles sludgecore merchants, COLOMBIAN NECKTIE, are pleased to reveal “Kevin’s Song” to the masses via Skulls ‘N’ Bones. The emotionally-driven hymn comes by way of the band’s new full-length, Twilight Upon Us, self-released earlier this month.

Crowned “scary sick” by Decibel Magazine, Twilight Upon Us was produced by Erol “Rollie” Ulug (Graf Orlock) at Bright Lights Studios and has been flooring fans and critics alike with its meticulous hardcore/sludge fusion. AngryMetalGuy commends COLOMBIAN NECKTIE’s,  “heavy, muddy, and chunky riffs,” and “no-bullshit song-writing approach,” furthering that, “COLOMBIAN NECKTIE are great for getting right to the point and not teasing you or leading you on. Song writing is definitely the band’s main focus on Twilight Upon Us, and that’s where they shine.” In a 4/5 rating, Stereokiller calls the record, “violent and impressive…,” Wonderbox Metal dubs it, “highly recommended listen for all connoisseurs of heaviness,” while Echoes And Dust adds, “if you’re looking for some intense music that brings together some of your old favorites – Dystopia, Mohinder,Pg. 99 or even Cave In, check out  Twilight Upon Us.”

As devouring as the record is however, much of Twilight Upon Us is rooted in tragedy as evidenced in ten-minute opus “Kevin’s Song,” written in honor of their late former bandmate. As soon as I heard [guitarists] Ben [Daniels] and Juan [Hernandez-Cruz] playing the riffs for what would become ‘Kevin’s Song,’ I knew we had something,” relays vocalist Scott Werren. “Lyric-wise, all I could think of at first is the feeling of pain and loss but also this vision of Kevin just moving past a physical form and exploring the galaxy. So I made it like silver surfer riding through the universe giving us a report back on his findings.”

Hear “Kevin’s Song,” now playing at Skulls ‘N’ Bones, at THIS LOCATION.

And if you missed it, sample “Guiding Light,” still streaming at Decibel Magazine at THIS LOCATION as well as “Sleepwalking” available at Metal Insider at THIS LOCATION.

Named in honor of a song by iconic noise rockers Big Black but more commonly known as a method of murder where the victim’s throat is slashed and the tongue is pulled through the open wound, COLOMBIAN NECKTIE has earned a reputation for their punishing riffs and maniacal DIY work ethic. Though clearly rooted in hardcore, tracks like the syncopated, sludgy death march of “Play The Game” and midtempo thrash of “Drought,” complete with squealing synths, add a welcome dose of variance to an album that’s uncompromising in its aggression.

Twilight Upon Us is out now independently. Order your copy today HERE.

The caravan of chaos will begin September 5th in Chicago and sully nearly two dozen municipalities before coming to a mutinous close on September 24th, 2014 in San Francisco.

Says guitarist/vocalist Digestor:”Greetings, Numbskulls! Once again GHOUL is coming to your rotten country to murder and devour your lard-assed, chicken-fried, imbecilic citizenry! We are currently hiding in empty pickle barrels in the hold of a tramp steamer on its way to one of your American ports. Luckily the pickle barrels have Wi-Fi, so I can not only send out this message, but I can tweet about all the things that enrage me on a daily basis. What an exciting time we live in! Anyhooooo, come out to our shows with the mighty Skeletonwitch and Black Anvil, and kiss your ass goodbye! And as always, live for metal, DIE FOR GHOUL!”

Additionally, GHOUL announced a new addition to their maggot-infested back-catalog, with the vinyl manifestation of their debut album, We Came For The Dead!!! Initially released in 2002, We Came For The Dead!!! was an instant cult classic in the most putrid depths of the metal underworld, delivering  a slick, punk-infused style of American goregrind from an unidentified tomb in the depths of Creepsylvania, where they’ve since waged war on mortals from with full anonymity. Having brainwashed countless souls since with a plethora of disturbing musical platters, GHOUL now offers up We Came For The Dead!!! on vinyl which includes a GHOULish rendition of Megadeth’s “Skull Beneath The Skin.”

We Came For The Dead!!! will be available for public consumption September 9th, 2014 via Tankcrimes on three gruesome color variants: a “More Blood” red edition in a run of 666, the ultra-limited “Torch” pressing in a tri-color yellow/orange/bone scheme, and the Die Hard edition, which bears a “Blood Spill” red inside clear vinyl, foil stamped jacket, flexi postcard w/ bonus track “We Are Creepsylvanians” by Igvar Shmeltzy and the Turnips. All vinyl editions include an instant download. Get gritty on this action HERE. And for the CD and digital format junkies, the album comes paired up with GHOUL’s ghastly follow-up to We Came For The Dead!!!, Maniaxe, as a nifty two-for-one album deal available now.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE: Seward Fairbury Found! Additional Live Assaults Announced

August 27th, 2014

CORRECTIONS HOUSE Minister Of Propaganda, Seward Fairbury, was located at a mental health facility in Northwestern Arizona last Friday. Some weeks back Fairbury was involved in some sort of as-yet-undetermined violence in his Northern California home. No charges have been filed as of yet. He’s been missing for nearly two months.

Interim band spokesperson/guitarist Scott Kelly had this to say: “We have been searching as best we could and maybe even praying a little for Seward to turn up somewhere. To put it mildly, he’s complicated and we truly barely have a grasp on who he even is in reality. We know that he has attached his psychic warhorse to our souls and ourselves and I think anyone who’s ever been in contact with him knows that’s just one those, it is what it is, type situations. He’s with us for better or worse. I guess now we will just wait to see what emerges from these latest shadows that he’s fallen into.”

Fairbury’s past is virtually unknown aside from his family’s lengthy criminal history which dates back to earliest settlers in the Northern California region. He has been involved in the music scene for well over thirty years in some capacity or another. He has previously dealt with psycho schizoid issues.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE will continue their live assaults this week in Chicago on August 28th and 29th as direct support of the legendary Sleep at Thalia Hall with an additional ritual slated to take place at this year’s edition of the Housecore Horror Film Festival. CORRECTIONS HOUSE will also continue diligent work on their second album which nears completion.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE Live:
8/28/2014 Thalia Hall – Chicago, IL
8/29/2014 Thalia Hall – Chicago, IL
10/23-10/26/2014 Housecore Horror Film Fest – Austin, TX w/ Neurosis, Eyehategod, Samhain, Author & Punisher, Cattle Decapitation, more

TORCH RUNNER: Details Of Endless Nothing And First Single Released; Second Album Out Via Southern Lord September 30th

August 27th, 2014

TORCH RUNNER returns with news of their second full-length, Endless Nothing, confirmed for release through Southern Lord Recordings this September.

Hot on the heels of the Southern Lord re-release of their debut album, Committed To The Ground, TORCH RUNNER is back with news of their imminent LP, titled Endless Nothing. On their second album, the North Carolina trio unleashes waves of rabid grind, repellent metallic clout and hardline vocal tirades in an uncontrolled explosion, which will surely appease fiends of Napalm Death, Converge and Nails. Southern Lord will release Endless Nothing in North America on September 30th in digital, CD and limited edition vinyl formats.

The fifth track from Endless Nothing, “Godlust,” is now playing at THIS LOCATION.

Exceptionally foul from the gritty start, TORCH RUNNER strikes with a turbid yet tightly-knotted hardcore storm. On top of that stomp, they infuse crust-infected death metal with a powerhouse grind pace, and with throbbing harsh noise to further increase the proceedings, the result is terrifying. Bassist/vocalist Rob Turner, guitarist Scott Hughes and drummer Josh Platt have already released several vicious recordings, including their Committed To The Ground album, released on To Live A Lie Records in 2012 and re-released by Southern Lord in May of this year, preceded by two EPs and a split 7” with Young And In The Way. Now, on Endless Nothing, the band is reaching new depths of auditory violence.

Stay tuned for more preview tracks from the album and tour dates from TORCH RUNNER.

TORCH RUNNER Live:
9/07/2014 Ziggy’s – Winston-Salem, NC w/ Weedeater

Endless Nothing Track Listing:
1. Attrition
2. Bound By Misery
3. Congregation
4. Circuition
5. Godlust
6. Rebirth
7. Calloused Mind
8. Circle Of Shit
9. Wordless
10. Endless Nothing

SOCIETY SUCKER: North Carolina Hardcore Outfit Drops “Repeat Offender” From Impending EP

August 27th, 2014

Having quickly surged to the forefront of the quickly growing North Carolina hardcore scene since forming in the Summer of 2013, SOCIETY SUCKER takes lessons from classic bands like Subzero, Next Step Up and Merauder and delivers their own slamming brand of hardcore comparable to contemporary powerhouses Trapped Under Ice, Suburban Scum and the like.

Lifted from their upcoming self-titled 7” EP for Get This Right Records, “Repeat Offender” is the perfect introduction to the SOCIETY SUCKER beatdown for those not in the know. A slick, aggro guitar line keeps you on your toes for a bit but you’re not match for the tracks slamming breaks and belittling gang chants that show up.

“Repeat Offender” is now playing at Soundcloud HERE and Bandcamp HERE; click one of the links and stand the fuck back.

Following their debut demo dropped last year, the Summer of 2014 will bring forth the first official release from SOCIETY SUCKER, having recently hooked up with Get This Right Records for the unleashing of the self-titled EP. With five enraged tracks loaded with more brutal hooks than a fleet of whalers, Society Sucker was recorded in February of this year at The Skylight Studio with Vince Ratti and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and bears bold cover art by Steven Kulesza. The band has performed heavily regionally along the East Coast with an extensive list of local and internationally touring acts, and is now booking shows in support of the new EP, including a record release show for the 7” on September 13th. SOCIETY SUCKER is a band committed to keeping hardcore hard. This is the proof.

Officially out on September 16th, preorders for Society Sucker are on seafoam green, gold/yellow clear or black wax are live at Get This Right Records HERE, and digital preorders HERE.

SOCIETY SUCKER Record Release Show:
9/13/2014 Reggie’s – Wilmington, NC w/ Criminal Instinct, Discourse, Heavy Chains, Fairlane, Rapid Change

AUTHOR & PUNISHER Announces New Round Of Live Assaults; “The Drone Machines Shall Return!”

August 27th, 2014

Master sound conspirator, Tristan Shone, will bring his cacophonous manifestation of cold, mechanical doom known as AUTHOR & PUNISHER to the streets in the coming months for a clobbering run of live takeovers. Set to commence next Thursday with a special performance and design talk at Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, Shone will levy his punishing sonic decompositions upon several additional music fests including San Diego Music Thing, Cold Waves Festival, Southwest Terror Fest and Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Fest, with future enactments in December in their plotting stages.

Comments Shone: “After a Summer of retooling and writing music for the upcoming release [stay tuned for details] I am taking to the skies and highways for a collection of special performances and festivals. After laying dormant for several years, the Drone Machines shall return for some of these events that don’t involve airplanes due to weight and power. ”

AUTHOR & PUNISHER’s latest full-length, Women & Children, was released last year via Seventh Rule Recordings. Crowned “powerful and chilling” by Metal Injection and commended for being “immediate but mysterious, a chimera that’s recognizable but strange,” by Pitchfork, the record continues to astound listeners globally for its ominously expressive brand of mechanical doom. In employing primarily custom designed and fabricated machines, speakers and various devices that draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics, Shone – who boasts a BS in mechanical engineering and an MFA in visual arts — manages to replicate dejection, desperation and profound sorrow through his musical corrosion with curious poise and beauty.

If you missed it, Shone spoke with Wired Magazine for an in-depth investigation of the voice modulating masks – among many other handcrafted industrial contraptions — that aid in his cacophonous manifestation of sound. View the video and feature HERE.
