MARUTA To Blast Five Tracks In Five Days As Remain Dystopian LP Nears Release

Monday, May 18th, 2015
[photo by Janette Valentine]

Now just two weeks from release is Miami grindcore squad MARUTA’s third LP, and first for Relapse Records; Remain Dystopian. Easily one of the extreme metal highlights of this year, the unstoppable album advances the genre with forward-thinking dementia jacked-into the brutalizing blasting core, and with the aid of several special guest appearances, makes for an incredibly satisfying platter of 21st Century grind.

For five days in a row, Relapse will unload a massive MARUTA smear campaign, dispatching five brand new tracks from Remain Dystopian, beginning right now, the barrage leading off with a premiere of “Genocide Interval” with American Aftermath. Through the rest of the week, Heavy Blog Is Heavy will release “Protocol for Self Immolation” tomorrow, Decibel Magazine will unload “Erode” (featuring JR Hayes of Pig Destroyer) on Wednesday, No Clean Singing breaks out “Slaying Jehova” on Thursday, and New Noise Magazine wraps up the crusade with “The Void Within” on Friday.

Join MARUTA’s Remain Dystopian assault with “Genocide Interval” at American Aftermath now, RIGHT HERE.

MARUTA sets their hometown ablaze on June 6th at a release show for Remain Dystopian, after which they’ll embark on a European tour in support of the LP, running from June 25th through July 11th where it will come to a close at the mighty Obscene Extreme Festival. Subsequent widespread North American touring will be announced in the coming days as well.

Named after a special project during World War II in which the Imperial Japanese Army used human beings for torturous scientific experiments, the newest phase in MARUTA’s modus operandi comes in the form of their fourth LP, and first for Relapse, with Remain Dystopian. Delivering seventeen demanding and damaging tracks in under twenty-eight minutes, the album is made all the more dangerous with the assistance of contracted outside henchmen for the multiple-studio recording of the album — including drums with Pig Destroyer’s Scott Hull and vocals with Torche’s Jonathan Nuñez — with additional torment tactics provided by Pig Destroyer’s J.R. Hayes, Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Jay Randall, and Tomas Lindberg of At The Gates.

The video for “Hope Smasher” is playing at Noisey at THIS LOCATION, and the tracks “Stride Endlessly Through Scorched Earth” featuring Tomas Lindberg is playing via Revolver Magazine RIGHT HERE, “Hope Smasher” at Lambgoat HERE, “Stand In Defeat” HERE, and a video from the recording sessions HERE.

Remain Dystopian campaign will see release on CD, LP and digital formats June 2nd in North America, May 29th in Germany, Benelux and Finland, and June 1st in the UK and elsewhere. Preorders for the physical versions are available HERE and digital preorders HERE.

GHOUL: The Hooded Henchmen Of Creepsylvania Set To Pillage Your Village On The Weapons Of Mosh Destruction 3-D Tour; Band Added To GWAR B-Q 2015

Friday, May 15th, 2015

The hooded henchmen in GHOUL are fleeing their delightful dungeons of Creepsylvania to pillage your village on this year’s Weapons Of Mosh Destruction trek, now in stunning 3-D (glasses not included, swine). The three-dimensional lashings will initiate tonight, May 15th in Denver, Colorado and spread its chaos and disease through nearly three-dozen cities with an included infiltration of the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore. Team GHOUL will unite with California grind hooligans, Phobia, and Ohio scumsmiths, Nekrofilth.

Additionally, the masked menaces were recently added to the sixth annual GWAR B-Q in Richmond, Virginia this August to perform their repugnant requiems and public decapitations. The fetid festivities follow the band’s decimating performance at Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil!

Issues Digestor, lead doer of deviousness, “GHOUL is on our way to your wretched country to once again scour the baked on scum from the crock pot of civilization. Sadness? Misery? Brutal totalitarian oppression? You’re soaking in it! GHOUL is also happy to announce that we will be playing the one and only GWAR B-Q! We look forward to receiving abuse, sexual and otherwise, from our fiendish overlords in GWAR, and sopping up their gore-soaked leavings in our palpitating jaws. Also, we will be playing some songs, time permitting.”

GHOUL unleashed their We Came For The Dead!!! release on vinyl last year. Initially unveiled in 2002, We Came For The Dead!!! was an instant cult classic 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 with full anonymity. The vinyl edition of We Came For The Dead!!! includes a GHOULed out rendering of Megadeth’s “Skull Beneath The Skin” and is out now on Tankcrimes. Get in on the action HERE. And for the CD and digital junkies, the album comes paired up with follow-up slab of sickness, Maniaxe, as a nifty two-for-one album deal available now. Shop with GHOUL and save!

WATERTANK: Single From New LP By French Post-Hardcore Quartet Streaming At American Aftermath

Friday, May 15th, 2015

The first single to see release from WATERTANK’s impending sophomore LP Destination Unknown is now streaming at American Aftermath, as the French outfit prepares or the album’s release through Solar Flare Records next month.

With a cranked-up but not over-the-top delivery, WATERTANK churns out a sleek, hook-laden style of noise rock-inclined melodic hardcore in the vicinity of acts like Torche, Quicksand, Jawbox, Sense Field and Failure. Recorded by Patrice Guillerme (Papier Tigre, Patriotic Sunday) and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Pilot To Gunner), Destination Unknown showcases the band’s revamped lineup delivering thirty-three minutes of brand new, prime material, and while the album came together rather quickly, being composed and recorded with unusually short notice, cohesively reveals a more confident band through this new batch of strongly crafted songs. The fourth of its nine tracks, “DCVR” now becomes part of the public domain courtesy of an exclusive premiere through American Aftermath, who states, “The upcoming offering boasts nine new tracks full of sludge-ridden post-hardcore that doesn’t skimp on the thunderous instrumentation or the ridiculously catchy hook,” then continuing, “The down-tuned jam trudges along with pummeling riffs that drip with melody and calls to mind the likes of Torche and Quicksand. If that gets you excited, then feel free to stream the track…”

You heard ‘em; click through to jam WATERTANK’s “DCVR” at THIS LOCATION.

Clermont-Ferrand, France-based Solar Flare Records has issued preorders in advance of Destination Unknown’s June 29th street date, the record due on CD, LP and digital formats. View the multiple options and bundles HERE.

WATERTANK is currently performing their new tracks live across France, including shows with the likes of Torche, Membrane and others. Additional tour dates are to be announced throughout the coming weeks as Destination Unknown nears release, and a larger tour is coming together for after the album’s release as well.

SECRETS OF THE SKY: New Full-Length From Atmospheric Doom Alchemists Streaming In Its Entirety At Invisible Oranges

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

With the final descent of Pathway, the latest studio offering from Oakland’s favorite atmospheric doom alchemists, SECRETS OF THE SKY, now less than one week away, today the sound sergeants at Invisible Oranges deliver the awe-inspiring production in its lingering entirety.

Engineered, mixed, mastered and co-produced by Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament, Sadus etc.) of Trident Studios with SECRETS OF THE SKY, Pathway is the gargantuan, thirteen-track follow-up to 2013’s lauded To Sail Black Waters full-length. Shadowy, fluid, dark and dreamlike, Pathway is a true sonic expedition that yields varying moods and textures with each passing listen. Metal Injection crowned first single, “Three Swords” alone a “progressive metal masterpiece,” while Metal Insider gushes, “Epic is a word that gets tossed around way, way too much when discussing music these days. Even after its overuse has been acknowledged, at least in metal circles, it is still heard in places it shouldn’t be…this is not one of those places. SECRETS OF THE SKY have truly crafted a sound and an album fitting of the ‘e’-word moniker. It’s a colossal effort with some stupendous songwriting and production work.” Dead Rhetoric shares the sentiment calling Pathway, “an emotionally draining journey… the type of album that you can just close your eyes and visualize your own tale, even as some parts seem to prop up only after repeated listens,” further advocating Pathway for having, “all of the inner workings of a great and resonating album.”

As a precursor its release, today Invisible Oranges is pleased to offer up Pathway, likening it to, “the doom equivalent of Alcest’s Écailles_de_Lune or Solstafir on last year’s Ótta, records with beauty, staying power and just enough grit to carry the day.”

Get lost in the overcoming sounds of Pathway at THIS LOCATION.

And sample the stark and gorgeous Andrew Nethery (Melvins, Kyuss Lives, Dead Meadow)-directed visual accompaniment to fourth track “Angel In Vines” at metalblade.com/secretsofthesky where you can also sample second movement, “Three Swords.”

SECRETS OF THE SKY is currently ravaging ears with their epic psalms supporting UK extreme metal duo/labelmates, Anaal Nathrakh. The tour commenced on May 11th in Sacramento, California and will draw to a close on May 22nd in Trenton, New Jersey, clawing its way through twelve cities with additional support from special guests, Incite. From there, SECRETS OF THE SKY will conquer eighteen more locales through eleven states alongside Tucson sludge ensemble, North, on select dates.

PRIMITIVE MAN: New Video Clip From Denver Misery Makers Now Playing At Revolver; Extensive Live Infiltrations Continue

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Denver misery makers, PRIMITIVE MAN, fresh off a mammoth European live takeover, are pleased to bring the frowns with the twisted visual companion to the track “Loathe.” The filth-ridden number comes by way of the trio’s Home Is Where The Hatred Is EP, released via Relapse Records earlier this year.

Crowned, “…an ugly, battered, seething bastard that will beat you with a jagged piece of metal,” by Metal Injection and highly recommended, “for those who appreciate the blackest, bleakest realms of sludge,” by Revolver, Home Is Where The Hatred Is was tracked at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.) and delivers four sordid psalms of the band’s now-signature brand of vicious, depressing, feedback-sodden severity.

Directed by Marcos Morales and Neil Barrett and produced by vocalist/guitarist Ethan McCarthy and Jonathan Campos at Dirty City Studios, the marathon, near-twelve-minute video clip for “Loathe” is fittingly dark, dismal and rampantly disturbing. Embracing violence, hopelessness, drug abuse, disease, destitution and all-purpose self-destruction, “Loathe” drags its viewers to the darkest bowels of human existence.

Feel better about your life with “Loathe,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.

And if that’s not enough to bring you down, you can still check out PRIMITIVE MAN’s equally disturbing “Bag Man” video still bringing the gloom at Noisey at THIS LOCATION.

PRIMITIVE MAN will continue their quest for global destruction with another round of live takeovers set to commence tomorrow in Omaha. Accompanied by Canadian grindcore perpetrators, Wake, on select dates, the band will consume eleven cities with their traumatic odes, including a stint at the Maryland Deathfest, with the run coming to a halt in Colorado Springs on May 30th. From there the band will join up with French metallers Celeste, and raze nineteen more cities through June and early July before uniting with Birmingham, UK misery troupe, Opium Lord, and heading east to level ten more locales. The final leg of the tour finds PRIMITIVE MAN trudging through eight more venues then pairing up with Milwaukee sludge slingers, Northless, for a bout of dates out west. The epic journey follows the band’s UK run with Sea Bastard and European dates with Fister as well as a special one off show opening for stoner metal icons, Sleep.

DRUNK DAD Spews “Whiskey Liver” Video From TVPDX Portland Television With Redneck; West Coast Tour Dates Slabbed

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Noncompliant to even the term “noise ordinance,” Northwestern hardcore/noise addicts DRUNK DAD recently raided TVPDX Portland Television studios to lay down a half-six-pack of tracks, the first of which now spills out onto public domain. The first of several bludgeoning video segments from this session drops today with “Whiskey Liver,” culled from their 2014 Eolian Empire-released debut LP, Ripper Killer. Multiple cameras and sound engineering duties courtesy of TVPDX and Caravan Recordings capture the horde delivering their intoxicating, sonic demolition, the primary noise rock-soaked quartet joined in the studio by harsh noise soloist and cohort REDNECK, as on the album.

Scope the DRUNK DAD sickos’ “Whiskey Liver” in HD A/V with TVPDX at THIS LOCATION.

The additional two tracks captured at this session will also be released in the coming days as DRUNK DAD hits the road again. The band scathes their hometown with labelmates Hot Victory tonight, May 14th, with a three-city trek through Sacramento, Oakland and Reno hammering the West Coast next week, on May 21st, 22nd and 24th, respectively.

DRUNK DAD Live:
5/14/2015 Star Bar – Portland, OR w/ Hot Victory, Moan [info]
5/21/2015 The Colonial Cafe – Sacramento, CA w/ Columbian Necktie, XtomhanX [info]
5/22/2015 The Golden Bull – Oakland, CA w/ Ditch Witch, Crypt Trip, Hellbeard [info]
5/24/2015 The Loving Cup – Reno, NV w/ Elephant Rifle, Sisters Doom [info]

Released through Eolian Empire in July 2014, DRUNK DAD’s Ripper Killer LP inebriated the planet, inciting jeers from mags like Decibel, who issued that the band’s depravity combines, “the thunderous sludge of Melvins, the confrontational punk rock of Flipper, and the abrasion and psychosis of Harvey Milk,” and Noisey, who championed the band, “a bunch of irreverent, whiskey-swilling noisemakers, roaming the streets of Portland’s nightlife in an effort to refuel their Jim Beam tanks,” continuing, “when they tell you their genre is ‘fuck you all’ wave, they mean it. Really. Fuck you all, and fuck you for asking.” Zero Tolerance offered in part, “DRUNK DAD do that ugly rot-that-walks sound with a pair of still-functioning bull-sized testicles,” Invisible Oranges likened Ripper Killer to, “a triple word score for ‘noise rock’ and ‘grunge’,” and Verbicide called the record, “equal parts shocking, thrilling, and kick ass.”

Get ready for another raging bender in the months ahead as DRUNK DAD preps new anthems of dissolution for release later this year.

TEMPLE OF DAGON: New Hymn From West Coast Crust Conjurors Streaming At Invisible Oranges

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

[by Paul Lee]

California crust conjurors, TEMPLE OF DAGON, will release Revelations Of The Spirit this June via Black Voodoo Records. Captured by Alex Estrada (Xibalba, Touche Amore, Silver Snakes et al) at Earth Capital Studios in Los Angeles, California and mastered by Dan Randall (Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan, Fucked Up et al) at Mammoth Sound in Alameda, California, the four-track EP is a pure and menacing manifestation of audio punishment based on the life and times of central character, the Horrid King. A soundtrack to self-loathing, self-reflection, self-acceptance and self-love, Revelations Of The Spirit is a cleansing of sorts – rich, scathing and continually illuminating.

In celebration of its impending release, today the heavy-heavers at Invisible Oranges are pleased to dispel the ravaging sounds of third movement, “The Wandering Spirit,” for public ingestion with the band elaborating, “It’s about somebody who forgot their own self-worth and purpose in life, leading them to seek validation through external sources.”

Adds Invisible Oranges, “In ‘The Wandering Spirit,’ the king is at the apex of his crisis and his turmoil manifests itself in Nelson Lopez’s frantic skanks and Alex LiCausi’s utterly gnarly basslines. The undeniable highlight comes right at the three-minute mark, where the band smothers a ’70s Priest-style stomp with a crunchy, straight-up nasty layer of crust. TEMPLE OF DAGON are an exciting proposition from the comfort of home, viscous and volatile in-person and pretty damn dirty. Sounds like Los Angeles alright.”

Follow “The Wandering Spirit” to THIS LOCATION.

Influenced by ’90s-era crust, stenchcore, death metal, thrash, and Lovecraftian lore, TEMPLE OF DAGON was forged in 2009 and quickly reaped an underground following with the release of their clobbering Book Of Azathoth EP. Following a glut of shows and various personnel changes, the band went on to record and self-released their 2010 debut, Rituals Of The Deep. Further blending their crust, punk, thrash, and death metal roots with a heavy dose of d-beat and blasts, the record earned further adulation from hordes in the know with Thrash Head commending the band’s, “pure fucking brutality,” further offering, “this is not only energetic and angry, but even aesthetically melodic with bridging riffs in all the right places! And the vocal dueling going down is heavy, aggressive protestation…This is truly sick!” Added The Bonesaw who named TEMPLE OF DAGON Band Of The Week, “A band whose lyrics are centered around H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of terror, TEMPLE OF DAGON unleashes a unique breed of metal blending death metal, thrash metal, doom, crust punk and New York influenced hardcore grooves.” 2015 finds the band at its most volatile. Having shared stages with the likes of Eyehategod, Hellshock, Doom, Hellbastard and so many others, boasting their most solid lineup to date and a drive unmatched by their peers, Revelations Of The Spirit is wholly scathing in sound, mind and spirit.

Revelations Of The Spirit will be unleashed on June 9th, 2015 digitally and on 10″ vinyl via Black Voodoo Records with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks.

In conjunction with the release, TEMPLE OF DAGON will raze the stages of a dozen cities beginning with an official record release show on June 6th. The following week the band will bring their diseased psalms to Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, New Orleans, Austin and Phoenix as well as Cruststock 2015 in Anaheim with additional live trauma to be announced soon.
