"Many Waters" Charity Compilation Announced

"Many Waters," a new compilation produced by Thou with help from Thrill Jockey, is due to be released on January 30th, with proceeds going to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to assist efforts in aiding those affected by the Louisiana floods of August 2016.

The compilation features a range of exclusive tracks from acclaimed metal acts as well as Louisiana DIY mainstays, including The Body & Full of Hell covering Devo, Thou covering Neil Young, special live tracks from Sumac and Old Man Gloom, and a solo live recording by Mike Scheidt of Yob.

Thou drummer Joshua Nee comments: “I spent the better part of three weeks after the flood driving around neighborhoods looking for homes to help out. Every day after work and pretty much all day on the weekends was spent gutting damaged homes. A practice space we had been sharing with a slew of other bands was totally wrecked, and countless bands I know had their spaces and equipment destroyed. More...

Sumac Reveals New Album Details

Sumac, the new band formed by Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom) and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), and also featuring bassist Brian Cook (Russian Cricles), has completed work on debut album “The Deal.” Profound Lore Records comments:

"Formed with the yearning for Aaron Turner to once again create massive, raw, heavy and brutal music while working with a new versatile drummer to bring more of a unique and progressive edge to the ideas he had, the sound Sumachave manifested does tread familiar territory found in Turner’s previous work while creating a forward-thinking sonic monolith reminiscent of the sound found in the classic Hydra Head Records aesthetic of the late ‘90s (via such groundbreaking albums as 'Until Your Heart Stops,' 'We Are The Romans,' and the early days of Isis).

"With bassist Brian Cook also lending his help to bring the sound of the debut Sumac album even more to next-level territory, 'The Deal' presents quite the versatile and huge sound picture that will lay a foundation that will define Sumac as one of the most exciting new bands in heavy music today."

Recorded in Seattle by Mell Dettmer and mixed by Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studios in Salem, MA, the track listing for “The Deal” goes as follows:

1. Spectral Gold
2. Thorn In The Lions Paw
3. Hollow King
4. Blight End’s Angel
5. The Deal
6. The Radiance Of Being

“The Deal” is slated to be released on February 3rd on CD/digital formats via Profound Lore Records and on vinyl via SIGE Records respectively. More...
