Translation Loss To Release Zodiak Debut

Zodiak, featuring members of Rosetta, ex-Lickgoldensky, Balboa, and Javelina have finished recording their debut album, "Sermons." The effort is to be mastered in the coming weeks and was recorded over the course of the past three years by the band’s guitarist, Mick Mullin at Super 8 Studios (High on Fire, Total Fucking Destruction).

"Sermons" consists of eight tracks that were mostly created out of improvised jams, though according to the band a large portion of the material came out more structured sounding then originally planned. An early-2008 release via Translation Loss Records is expected, but in the meantime, you can preview the track "Excavate" from the band's Translation Loss debut.

The band also plans on performing a few select dates throughout the course of next year.

Javelina Signs To Translation Loss Records

Translation Loss Records has announced the signing of Philadelphia’s doom/sludge masters Javelina.

Javelina (pronounced ha-va-lE-na) started crafting their massive sound in October of 2005. Formed by ex-members of Philadelphia bands Lickgoldensky, SMUT and Otophobia/Endless Nightmare, they spent over a year crafting their sound before playing their first show.

Javelina will continue to write, record, and tour until they have nothing left to give.

You can hear demo versions of two songs from their upcoming Translation Loss debut due out in early 2008 on the band's MySpace page.
