Fitting with the vibe of the storyline as a whole, the clip focuses more on story elements and vibe rather than close up shots of guitar-noodling. I think it sets the tone nicely. Cheers!” [MORE…]

AGUSA: Laser’s Edge To Release Eponymous Third Album By Swedish Psychedelic/Progressive Rock Alchemists In October – Swedish psychedelic/progressive rock alchemists AGUSA present their third full-length album, and second for Laser’s Edge, simply titled Agusa.

While Agusa 2 (Två) engulfed forty minutes of music through two massive tracks, Agusa sees the band delivering their singular brand of trance-inducing, folk-inspired, occult rock through more traditional track lengths, offering five songs which range from five to ten-and-a-half minutes in length and are a bit heavier than the album’s predecessors.

USNEA: Noisey Streams Portals Into Futility In Its Entirety; Record Out NOW On Relapse – “Musically speaking, Portals Into Futility builds upon the progress they made with its predecessor, Random Cosmic Violence. ‘Funeral doom has always been an ill-fitting mantle for the four… because, while their tuning is low and tempo is slow, they’ve never shied away from progression. Rather than floating motionless in amber, USNEA reaches out and absorbs outside energies, which then combust into psychedelic spirals, tormented shrieks, shining acoustic passages, hollow-voiced choruses, and flashy drumming.” — Noisey [MORE…]

While this is my best explanation of the lyrics, it’s really just another death metal song about death.” [MORE…]
