“The seventh album from Oregon doom metal sky-gazers, YOB … makes perfect bedfellows of volume and beauty, pain and transcendence.” – Rolling Stone

“Mike Scheidt’s songwriting has never been stronger or more dynamic… a masterful return to form by an American doom powerhouse” – Decibel

“Clearing The Path To Ascend is YOB at their most frenzied (‘Nothing To Win’) as well as their gentlest (‘Marrow’), but taken as whole, its four songs feel like the seasons or the elements: powerful, eternal, wondrous, and bigger than all of us.” – Stereogum

“An absolute monument of musicianship, songcraft, and raw emotion…” – Free Williamsburg

“The sound on Clearing The Path To Ascend is tactile: You can practically feel vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt’s callused hands sliding up and down the guitar neck…This isn’t a case of fixing what was broken; it’s about becoming greater than they already were.” – Wondering Sound

“For all its heaviness, the album is disarmingly meditative, relying less on forcing the mood for the listener and entrusting that the human commonalities of love, loss, fear, and hope threaded throughout the music will render an altogether familiar place of comfort and strength within the listener.” – Steel For Brains

YOB’s Clearing The Path To Ascend is available now via Neurot Recordings HERE.

UNRUH: Tomb 3xLP Box Set From Phoenix Act To See Release Via King Of The Monsters In Conjunction With Twenty-Year Reunion

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

King Of The Monsters has declared the impending release of a massive triple-LP box set sealing within it the entire recorded discography and more from Phoenix, Arizona hardcore outfit, UNRUH, in conjunction with the band’s recent twenty-year reunion.

From their formation in the Spring of 1995 until its demise only five years later, UNRUH formed from the ashes of Uruk Hai, joined by members of Scourge and Wellington. With their searing alloy of crust, hardcore and metal influences, packing just as much grueling, low-end sludge torture as they did rabid, blazing powerviolence/hardcore attacks, UNRUH’s desert harsh output saw them comparable to Corrupted, Crossed Out, Rorshach, Assück, Gehenna, Milhouse and the like. Besides decimating the Southwest live continuously, the band toured the US several times and even stormed Europe on tour in 1999, before disbanding in May of 2000. Following the band’s dissipation, the members have gone on to form and play with Landmine Marathon, Black Hell, GOG, Antique Scream, Ofdeath, Structure Of Lies, North Side Kings, District 9 and more.

Within the half decade of their existence, UNRUH churned out a respectable arsenal of recorded works, including several demos, two LPs through King Of The Monsters and Pessimiser, several split releases and EPs, notable compilation inclusions and more, all of which are now being collectively re-released in a 3-LP box set, Tomb. The massive package will include the Misery Strengthened Faith and Setting Fire To Sinking Ships LPs as well as an entire third platter of B-Sides, amassing the two demos, the band’s splits with Enewetak and Creation Is Crucifixion, the Friendly Fire EP and their material from the Seven Deadly Sins and Cry Now, Cry Later compilations. Additionally, the digital version will include a live set from CBGB’s, captured on UNRUH’s tour with Fall Silent in 1997.

UNRUH just reunited briefly to celebrate twenty years since their formation with a special hometown show. Read more about the reunion gig through an interview with guitarist Ryan Butler (Landminde Marathon, Arcane Digital Recording, etc.) HERE.

WRATH OF VESUVIUS: West Coast Technical Death Outfit To Drop New Full-Length This June; Studio Footage/Track Sampler Revealed + US Tour To Kick Off Tomorrow

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

California technical death metal architects and recent Unique Leader signees, WRATH OF VESUVIUS, otherwise known as WRVTH, will release their third full-length this June. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, All Shall Perish et al.) at SharkBite/Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, the self-titled opus features a guest appearance from Daniel Casares from Bay Area jazz group “Atta Kid” on saxophone and boasts eleven tracks of transcendental death metal. Elaborates the band, “We get a lot of inspiration from the experience of just being in a band. All the conflicts and resolutions throughout the years have all molded the way we approach our songs. We’ve always been the type of musicians that take the next step to further our skill but collectively and as an entity we strive to convey the jaded sense of growing older into our music. Like Revelation, there is a melodic and lyrical progression that all leads up to cathartic resolution. It takes you on a journey of emotional high points ranging from the good, bad and unforgiveable.”

Check out studio footage as well as a track sampler below.

WRVTH Track Listing:
1. Harrowing Winds
2. Malaise
3. Looming Sigils
4. Ongoing Dissension
5. Endless Haze
6. Lured By Knaves
7. Forlorn
8. Larkspur
9. Amber Glow
10. Into Bloom
11. Cease To Exist

As a precursor to the record’s release, WRVTH will crumble stages alongside tech death behemoths/labelmates Inanimate Existence on a two-plus week takeover. The Enter Into Atonement Tour 2015 is scheduled for liftoff tomorrow, February 26th in Stockton, California and will pillage eighteen cities with additional onstage demolitions in their plotting stages.

Established in 2007, WRVTH self-financed their 2009 A World In Peril EP followed by their 2010 debut long player Portals Through Ophiuchus before piquing the interest of Mediaskare Records who released sophomore rager, Revelation, in 2013. Following two years of maniacal tour schedules, personnel shifts, and a wholly matured approach to their sound, WRATH OF VESUVIUS will drop their self-titled third offering this Spring.

WRVTH will be released on June 16th, 2015. Music and preorders packages to be unveiled in the weeks to come.

FULGORA: Full-Length From Grindcore/Death Unit Featuring Members Of Pig Destroyer, Misery Index & Agoraphobic Nosebleed Streaming In Its Entirety At Decibel; Preorders Available

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Stratagem is the forthcoming, seven-track skull-crusher from grindcore/death perpetrators, FULGORA. A name representing the female personification of lightning in Greek mythology, FULGORA features members of Pig Destroyer, Misery Index and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Together, their output is vicious, painful and sadistic.

Stratagem, set for imminent detonation courtesy of Housecore Records next month, is a sinister collection of limited vinyl singles and samples. In anticipation of its release, today Decibel Magazine spews forth Stratagem in its scathing entirety noting in a recent 8/10 review of the record, “With Adam and John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, Agoraphobic Nosebleed etc.) acting as the rhythmic backbone  for guitarist/vocalist B.L. LaMew it’s not a surprise that direct lines exist between those bands. Not that we’re complaining. Adam’s drumming …unfathomably exudes space, breadth and surprising amounts of groove, while sounding like he’s hitting everything at once. His frenetic style works well with LaMew’s weaving of splashy discord into taut powerful riffs.”

Strap on a helmet and check out Stratagem at THIS LOCATION.

And if you missed it, watch the visual companion to the track “Meridian,” which American Aftermath dubs a “three-minute barrage of vile, grind mayhem,” playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.

FULGORA will release Stratagem via Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Records on March 24th, 2015. For CD preorders, visit THIS LOCATION. Vinyl lovers go HERE.

FULGORA is cute” – Philip H. Anselmo

“…if Misery Index is a determined fanatic seething with the righteous rage of political revolution and Pig Destroyer is the lovelorn, desperate stalker of every woman’s nightmares, then FULGORA is a mad scientist who is going to make you the middle section of his human centipede. FULGORA’s music is unforgiving and furious, but it’s also executed with surgical precision.” — MetalSucks

MAESTUS: Blackened Doom Collective To Release Debut Full-Length Next Week; New Hymn Streaming At Cvlt Nation + Preorders Available

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Pacific Northwestern blackened doom unit, MAESTUS, will unleash their debut full-length, Voir Dire, next week via a joint venture between Domestic Genocide Records and Glossolalia Records. Comprised of Stephen Parker (Arkhum) and Jarrod Hyam (Sophos), with Kenneth Parker (Grst) and Cordell Cline (Dimensionless) recently enlisted to fulfill rhythm duties, Voir Dire was engineered and mixed during the Summer months of 2014 at Parker’s own The Wilderness studio and delivers seventy-four minutes of heart-blistering grimness, concluding with a four-part epic, ‘Opaque Shadows In Framed Stillness,’ the duration of which makes up nearly half the record’s length. Mastered by Agalloch’s Jason Walton at Earth In Sound in October 2014, Voir Dire integrates black metal, doom and ambient, resulting in a caustic yet lush confessional.

The dread-bringers at Cvlt Nation are pleased to offer up a sample helping of Voir Dire by way of second movement, “Weeping Granite,” remarking, “This blackened doom horde from Eugene, Oregon, will crush your skull with their massive riffs like a mammoth block of slow-moving granite that engulfs your senses millimeter by millimeter. Their music is a blend of black metal, doom and ambient, allowing the listener to drift into peaceful fantasy before they are flattened to a bloody pulp.”

Let the flattening commence HERE.

Voir Dire Track Listing:
1. Shrouded by Peaks, Valleys Speak
2. Weeping Granite
3. Tears of Sky
4. Algid Lungs
Opaque Shadows In Framed Stillness:
5. I: Overcast Fields Ridden With Dew
6. II: Specie Æternitas
7. III: Water Sifting Through Iceladen Veins
7  V: Per Æternitas

MAESTUS will bring their solemn odes to the stage this Friday for a special record release show at Wandering Goat in Eugene, Oregon with additional live exhibits to be announced in the coming weeks.

MAESTUS:
2/27/2015 Wandering Goat – Eugene, OR Record Release Show w/ Facing Extinction, Dark Confidant, Black Woofer [info]

Voir Dire follows the release of the band’s 2013-issued Scarlet Lakes EP, which A Kvlt Of Personality commended for capturing, “nature in all his horrific beauty…. uncomfortable …bipolar and dissonant, but often beautiful.”

Preorders for Voir Dire can be placed at THIS LOCATION or THIS LOCATION.

BEHEMOTH: Devil’s Conquistadors Out TODAY Via Metal Blade Records; Loudwire Reveals New Book Excerpts + Co-Headlining Tour With Cannibal Corpse Rolls On

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Today, Metal Blade Records is very pleased to unleash Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors to the masses. Written by Łukasz Dunaj, the gorgeous, meticulously-designed 490-page, hardcover tome takes an in-depth look at the history of the events that materially influenced the band, their music, their ultimate rise to the upper echelon of metal and becoming a household name in their native homeland of Poland. Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors includes quotes and anecdotes from current and former BEHEMOTH members as well as interviews with Tomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal, Havok, vintage, never-before-seen photos, flyers, lyric sheets and so much more.

Said vocalist/guitarist Nergal, “BEHEMOTH’s biography is out now on Metal Blade Records! It took us years to complete this project. It includes hundreds of rare photos and has ‘The Satanist’ chapter too! Beautifully packaged with a thick cover! Hope you will all dig it… It’s a crucial part of my life here written in 500 pages!”

Following last week’s teaser from Revolver Magazine, today Loudwire revels in the book’s release with additional excerpts, this time revisiting the …From The Pagan Vastlands demo photo shoot where Nergal nearly burned his face off.

Read all about it at THIS LOCATION.

And if you missed it scroll over to Revolver Magazine at THIS LOCATION where Nergal recounts his early grade and high school years, his increasing interest in extreme music and his growing skepticism of Catholicism.

BEHEMOTH is currently waging their infernal odes upon the ears of North America on a co-headlining tour with legendary death metal practitioners/labelmates, Cannibal Corpse. The month-long takeover continues to stampede across the country and will level nearly three-dozen cities upon its conclusion on March 7th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Support comes from two of Sweden’s finest metal exports: Aeon and Tribulation. Said OC Weekly of the band’s stunning stage set up, “BEHEMOTH’s The Satanist-themed ritualistic performance demonstrated years of perfecting the craft of ceremonious metal. The band’s Middle Eastern influences were decorated as serpents emerged from microphone stands. The minimal white light and red beams emanated the Toxic Vision designed stage clothes and demonic face paint priming fans for a sacrificial feast. The nefarious trappings were meticulously planned for an entire experience, leaving fans filled with skepticism, fear, awe, invigoration and arousal.” The Dallas Observer notes, “BEHEMOTH’s credo is the power of the will, and it completely permeates their live show… On a starkly lit stage filled with cast-iron ritualistic symbols, vocalist and guitarist Nergal lurched around with the ease of a seasoned performer. He held the audience in his hand, and his performance alone made it plain why BEHEMOTH’s live show is so renowned,” while SoCalMusic Today adds, “BEHEMOTH pulled off a dark masterpiece of epic proportions. The stench of incense burning overtook the venue… the mighty BEHEMOTH made a grand entrance as guitarist Seth and bass player Orion took their places on a platform on each side of the stage as Nergal wearing a hooded robe slowly walked out to the center mic stand with flaming stakes in each hand as the band blasted into ‘Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer’ as an invigorated Nergal shouted ‘doesn’t it feel good to be alive?’ In white face-paint, Nergal looked as sinister as ever and sounded spot on – you would never know this was a person who a mere four years ago battled leukemia and won.”

BEHEMOTH w/ Cannibal Corpse, Aeon, Tribulation [remaining dates]:
2/24/2015 The Phoenix – Toronto, ON
2/25/2015 Metropolis – Montreal, QC
2/27/2015 House of Blues – Boston, MA
2/28/2015 Webster Hall – New York, NY
3/01/2015 Theater Of The Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA
3/02/2015 The Fillmore – Silver Spring, MD
3/03/2015 The Fillmore – Charlotte, NC
3/05/2015 Masquerade – Atlanta, GA
3/06/2015 Janus Landing – Tampa, FL
3/07/2015 Revolution – Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors is out TODAY via Metal Blade Records.  Order yours at metalblade.com/behemoth.

“If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which BEHEMOTH’s music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might.” — Krzysztof Azarewicz

WARHORSE: Vice Magazine Levies The Heavy With A Stream Of “I Am Dying;” Reissue To See Release This Tuesday Via Southern Lord Recordings

Friday, February 20th, 2015

With its official reissue now just days away, today Vice Magazine levies the heavy with a stream of “I Am Dying” from legendary Massachusetts doom weavers, WARHORSE.

The gargantuan psalm comes by way of the band’s final EP of the same name, initially unleashed in 2002 and now available as a companion to the band’s As Heaven Turns To Ash… full-length, both given the reissue treatment by Southern Lord Recordings. Long out-of-print, fervently sought after, and unconditionally vital in foreshadowing the glut of current bands that indulge in slow, self-possessed, infernal low-end sound excursions, WARHORSE’s As Heaven Turns To Ash and their subsequent I Am Dying EP still reeks of brimstone, bong smoke, and burning tube amp nearly fifteen years since their respective releases! Both slabs of doom domination will be combined and reanimated on double LP and digital formats courtesy of the Lord.

In commemoration of its release, Vice kicks off your weekend with the sonic enormity of “I Am Dying” noting, “Doom is a careful and meticulous art, and WARHORSE did it right. They blended Sabbath-era blues riffs with obliterating vocals and enough dark walls of sound to transcend all of the usual run-of-the-mill stoner metal. It’s a heavy dose of sludge… While bands like Sleep and Electric Wizard encouraged us to ‘drop out of life with bong in hand’ or mount the dopethrone, WARHORSE conjures a genuine sense of exuberant doom and despair.”

Raise your doom claw to the sounds of “I Am Dying,” now playing at THIS LOCATION.

You can also shake the pavement with “Doom’s Bride,” still weighing down the airwaves of Noisey at THIS LOCATION.

Forged in 1996 and lasting the best part of a decade, the output of WARHORSE wallows deep down, grooving at the kind of frequency usually associated with imminent natural disaster. But in addition to their intricate delivery, WARHORSE exuded an experimental, subtle psychedelic swagger which gave rise to gritty and memorable riffs, and saw them sharing stages with the likes of such amplification legends as Electric Wizard, Khanate, Acid King, High On Fire and Unearthly Trance.

As Heaven Turns To Ash… + I Am Dying will be released on double LP via Southern Lord Recordings on February 24th, 2015. A limited run of 500 copies on gold vinyl are available exclusively to mailorder customers. For preorder bundles go to THIS LOCATION. For digital orders go HERE.

“With their one LP, WARHORSE managed to create a stellar stoner doom release, and one that any fan of heavy music should experience.” – Sputnik Music

“But if you like your doom agonizingly slow and bitter, without a trace of hope left in the universe, then As Heavens Turn To Ash… is your apocalyptic nightmare come true.” – The Metal Observer

“The most outstanding accomplishment on the record, however, has to be the band’s ability to travel from quiet introspective parts to crushing heaviness and back within a single song. They manage to shift dynamics with such ease that it is a real delight to participate in the journey.” – Teeth Of The Divine

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH Unleashes New Hymn Via NPR; Self-Titled Debut Out TODAY On Neurot Recordings

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Following teasers from Decibel Magazine and Classic Rock, today NPR hurls forth the asphyxiating heaviness of “Unnamed” from Seattle doom bringers, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH. The tune makes it’s chest-caving appearance on the band’s self-titled debut, out TODAY in Europe via Neurot Recordings.

Slow, heavy and wholly unapologetic, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth is the sound of earthly decomposition and planetary demise. Fronted by legendary guitarist/vocalist Tad Doyle — formerly of TAD and Hog Molly – alongside veteran bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki), the trio’s debut was tracked at at Robert Lang Studios and Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio in Seattle, Washington, mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Melvins et al) and serves as Doyle’s first recorded release in nearly fifteen years. Already reaping critical hails from both sides of the pond, Invisible Oranges vows, “it will be very difficult for any band to release a better album than this one in 2015,” further gushing, “The glacially paced ‘Empires Of Dust’ evokes Monotheist-era Celtic Frost with some post-punk elements, while ‘Unnamed’ imagines a world where the Melvins play black metal. The album’s crown jewel is the eleven-minute ‘La Mano Poderosa,’ which begins life as pure stoner Sleep worship then slowly, deliberately morphs into a noise rock jam buried under layers of metal distortion and Bonham drums. When the song’s coda comes back to (and augments) the opening riff it feels like Godzilla returning to the ocean. Like the most iconic albums, this one reveals hidden nuances and elements with every listen.”

Comments Doyle of third movement, “Unnamed,” “One of the hardest questions to honestly ask oneself is, ‘Who am I?’ People move through life attaching labels to themselves, and to others. It’s human nature for you to call yourself a motorcycle rider if you ride motorcycles. We tend to attach the things that we do — our jobs, our actions — to our identity of who we think we are as individuals. By doing so, we are selling ourselves way too short by labeling our existence. The song ‘Unnamed’ is about letting go of false perceptions of ourselves and others in order to be truly open and free from the shackles of perception.”

Adds NPR, “Doyle’s ears must have absorbed the past decade of heavy where the quiet-to-ear-splitting-loud dynamic dominated, but like his Pacific Northwest brothers in YOB, there is purpose in its movement. After a minute and a half of moody guitar delay, the distorted downbeat aided by bassist Peggy Doyle is an air cannon to the chest. Do whatever you need to clear the space, but turn the volume as high as it can go — you deserve it. The robotic crunch comes out of Godflesh’s Streetcleaner, diced up like carrots with a Japanese knife by drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki) and briefly spun out of orbit by Doyle’s rubbery Jeff Hanneman-like flourishes. Doyle also flexes some serious vocal prowess, howling like a grizzly bear throughout and chanting through panned guitars in the final minutes. In eight minutes, ‘Unnamed’ is a hulking monster that maybe just wants a hug … at least until Doyle lets out one last 20-second, searing croak.”

Free yourself with “Unnamed,” now playing at NPR at THIS LOCATION.

You can also get crushed by the sounds of “La Mano Poderosa” heavying up the airwaves of Classic Rock at THIS LOCATION and “Lava,” still crushing Decibel HERE.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH will bring their sonic rumble to the stage this April with a special record release show at The Columbia City Theater in Seattle. Additional live performances are in the plotting stages and will be announced in the coming weeks.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH:
4/18/2015 The Columbia City Theater – Seattle, WA [info]

Out TODAY in Europe and tomorrow in North America, order Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth on CD or LP at THIS LOCATION.

“The cover says it all: a molten sun cannonballs into a blackened landscape, spraying lava as it careers into finality… From the first chord, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth demand that the volume dial go up as far as you can get it. A range of musical forms lurch out of the speakers – at times some of the riffs head toward Sunn O))) territory, or the Melvins at their most molasses-thick, but there’s none of the disinterest in rocking out that some denizens of guitar music’s outer reaches can sometimes exhibit.” – Digital Fix

“The riffs and rhythm section are hypnotic. There is nothing short or sweet about this album. Most of the songs are quite long and sound lovingly like chainsaws dipped in tar. Some of the best stoner metal to come out in some time.” – Glacially Musical

“If you’ve ever wondered what might have happened if The Pixies had turned into flesh-eating zombies right after they released Surfer Rosa, your wait is over. Because they probably would have sounded like BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH.” — Echoes And Dust

“…so tasty, it’ll have you unashamedly coming back for seconds, and thirds, and fourths, and dessert, and a cheese course, and just one tiny little wafer thin mint…” – Drowned In Sound

“After 15 years of relative silence, it’s good to have Tad Doyle back and in such fine form. God’s balls, This is heavy shit.” – MusicOMH

WARHORSE: Hymn From Iconic Massachusetts Doom Conjurors Streaming At Noisey; As Heaven Turns To Ash… /I Am Dying Reissue Preorders Available

Monday, February 9th, 2015

In just two weeks, Southern Lord Recordings will reissue the As Heaven Turns To Ash… debut and subsequent I Am Dying EP from short-lived, iconic Massachusetts doom conjurors, WARHORSE.

Long out-of-print, fervently sought after, and unconditionally vital in foreshadowing the plethora of current acts who indulge in slow, self-possessed, infernal low-end sound excursions, As Heaven Turns To Ash… was issued in 2001 with the band’s final two-track I Am Dying EP unleashed just one year later, both via the Southern Lord stable. Still reeking of brimstone, bong smoke, and burning tube amp, both slabs of doom domination will be combined and reanimated later this month on double LP and digital formats.

In observance of its release, Vice Magazine’s music portal, Noisey, hurls forth “Doom’s Bride,” the second movement off As Heaven Turns To Ash… elaborating,Traditionally speaking, a war horse is a massive beast, capable of carrying its master into the heat of battle and fending off attackers by virtue of its imposing bulk and deadly flying hooves. From the plains of Asia to medieval bloodbaths up to the far-flung atrocities of WWII, war horses’ lives were stained by blood, narrated by screams, and generally—mercifully—short. Given their brutal history, it’s not exactly difficult to see why they’d serve as the namesake for not one, but at least five different heavy metal bands… The Massachusetts WARHORSE was as short-lived as its namesake, but left a far greater impact than any of those poor nags ever did. The scarcity of their recordings rendered them cult classics, and their syrupy, downtuned grooves more than stand the test of time — a fact that Southern Lord picked up on when they decided to reissue WARHORSE’s seminal 2001 full-length, As Heaven Turns To Ash…, and final I Am Dying 7″ together in one monumentally heavy package.”

Feel the cataclysmic crush of “Doom’s Bride” now suffocating the frequencies of Noisey at THIS LOCATION.

Forged in 1996 and lasting the best part of a decade, the output of WARHORSE wallows deep down, grooving at the kind of frequency usually associated with imminent natural disaster. But in addition to their intricate delivery, WARHORSE exuded an experimental, subtle psychedelic swagger which gave rise to gritty and memorable riffs, and saw them sharing stages with the likes of such amplification legends as Electic Wizard, Khanate, Acid King, High On Fire and Unearthy Trance.

As Heaven Turns To Ash… will be released via Southern Lord Recordings on February 24th, 2015. Preorder yours today at THIS LOCATION.
