Salem Rose Music Presents has teamed up with Vegas Star Bookings to bring a different kind of music festival to Las Vegas. "Doom in June" Fest, which will be held Saturday, June 5th at The Cheyenne Saloon (3103 N. Rancho Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89130), is intended to be an annual event every June that will kick off the summer with some of the best names in Doom and Stoner Rock Music. The musical styles are held near and dear to those dedicated to the cause and Marco Barbieri, owner of Salem Rose Music, is a longtime fan and supporter of the underground music scene and wanted to put his own spin on things.
“With only a handful of Doom and Stoner Rock fests around the world we've decided to support these genres by throwing our own party to be held every year in June in Las Vegas. June 5th marks the inaugural 'Doom in June' Fest and we're preparing for a special day showcasing some of the finest emerging bands in the styles.”
15 out-of-town bands will be coming to Las Vegas to perform including Fireball Ministry, Black Cobra, Slough Feg, The Gates of Slumber, Radio Moscow, Sasquatch, House of Broken Promises, Ride the Sun, Supergiant, Behold! The Monolith, Green & Wood, Aranya, Salvador, Lead Burns Red and Dirt Communion. The event starts at 2pm and goes for 12 hours. Advance tickets are available now for $20 from brownpapertickets.com.

Southern Lord has officially announced the signing of two new bands into their eclectic, congregation of auditory purveyors. Coincidentally both bands are duos - each consisting of merely a guitarist and a drummer. The label welcomes Black Cobra and Eagle Twin.
Rafa Martinez and Jason Landrian have been coalescing Black Cobra's sonic brew for nearly six years now, yet neither were strangers to heaving heavy riffage prior, with Rafa doing time with Acid King and 16, and Jason in Cavity. But the pair unleashes a tone heavier than a trio of both guitar and drums. Their impenetrable hardcore doom chemistry evokes an intensity that sets them apart from the others, both live and recorded. The band has toured seemingly endlessly on both US and foreign soil since their 2002 inception, sharing the stage with The Sword, Weedeater, High On Fire, Torche and countless other bands in the upper ranks of metal and doom, most times blowing the competition away completely. Black Cobra plans to record their first album for Southern Lord sometime in the first half of 2009, with more info and tour dates to be announced very shortly.
Hailing from Salt Lake City, Eagle Twin has mainly solidified into proper form over the course of this year. Guitarist Gentry Densley is a very old friend whose previous band Iceburn was one of the most interesting and incredible bands of the '90s hardcore/post-hardcore movement. Gentry and Greg Anderson (Southern Lord, sunn 0))), Goatsnake) collaborated on the Ascend album Ample Fire Within record, released by Southern Lord earlier this year. The Eagle Twin sound is stained with early doom and blues-roots rock backing mythology of epic Old Testament proportions. The band will be recording their debut album with Randall Dunn (Earth, sunn 0)))) in Seattle this Winter and it should be released before summer of 2009.
Black Cobra will be touring in support of High On Fire for a few dates in December. The latest Black Cobra tour dates are as follows:
12/01/08 El Corazon, Seattle WA w/ Dub Trio
12/02/08 Doug Fir Lounge, Portland OR w/Dub Trio
12/03/08 Samurai Duck, Eugene OR
12/06/08 Stork Club, Oakland, CA w/ Totimoshi

Stereogum has premiered the viral version of The Sword's new video for "Fire Lances Of The Ancient Hyperzephyrians." The video is set in a post-apocalyptic world, thousands of years after the end of human civilization. A new race is born - one that has no idea that man had once ruled. The directors, Mike Colao and Josh Litwhiler, used a technique called "rotoscoping", where they traced over live-action film movement, frame by frame. The result is a visually captivating look into what could be the future of the human race as we know it.
Yesterday also marked the release of the band's two-song, 10" picture disc. Although already sold out through Kemado, you can purchase the songs on iTunes.
