Catapult the Dead To Release New Album

Hailing from Oakland, CA, the six piece crushing tribe of doom Catapult the Dead are teaming up with San Francisco's Doom Stew Records for the new full length release "A Universal Emptiness," which is due to drop on November 15th.

Catapult the Dead brings to the genre its own version of musical sorrow, despondency, and longing. This unique and haunting outfit is as beautifully devastating as it is callous and brooding.

"A Universal Emptiness" is a 38:39 minute apocalyptic journey. Sweeping synth and organ soundscapes lead you eerily, through a dark thunderous wall of sound.

All the while baleful roars and ghostly wales round out this bleak, crushingly dynamic, full length offering.

"A Universal Emptiness" will be available as a CD, vinyl LP, digital download and cassette tape. The 12" vinyl comes in three special color variants to compliment the beautiful illustrations created by Macedonian artist Pig Hands. Also featuring insert and label Illustrations by Death Ink.

The track listing is:

1. 'Till It Goes Away
2. Anti-Aether
3. Last Breath
4. Burning Womb More...

Doommantia Volume 2 Compilation Streaming

The long awaited Doommantia Vol. 2 anthology has been released. This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard, founder of Doommantia.com. After suffering with heart problems for years, Ed was hit with astronomical hospital bills which left him homeless. Due to the lack of decent healthcare in the US, Ed has now returned to his homeland of Australia to receive the care he deserves.

To help him with living expenses, 84 bands and artists from all over the world have come together once again to ease the burden left upon Ed. Just a nominal sum (with an option to pay more) gets you over 9 hours of some of the best doom, stoner, sludge, psychedelic, and drone jams out there. Stream the whole compilation and get the download details over at bandcamp. More...
