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...
South American sludge lords Cultura Tres have released an official video from their recent third album "Rezando al Miedo." The video, "Es Mi Sangre," is enhanced by the imagery of the paintings of Damian Michaels; an artist known for his vast collection of dark surrealism.

Dutch heavy rock band Pendejo! has announced a couple of more dates will be added to the Mudfest Tour on its Facebook wall. The two new dates will feature Pendejo! and the other three artists: Cultura Tres, Banda de la Muerte and Undersmile. The dates follow below, along with an upload of Pendejo's official video for the song "Flotadores" from its debut "Cantos a la Vida."
Pendejo! is an interesting stoner rock band, since they are all from the Netherlands and decided to pick Spanish as the language they would sing in instead of English (two of the members do have Latino lineage in them, though). Their sound also infuses a horn section into it. Visit the Mudgate site for more dates and tour information. Also check out Pendejo's MySpace page to listen to songs from its first album.
