Madder Mortem Streams Full New Album

Today marks the long-awaited release of "Red In Tooth And Claw," the sixth full-length studio offering from Norwegian avant metal collective, Madder Mortem. Alongside its official unveiling, you can now hear the full release below. Elaborates Madder Mortem vocalist Agnete M. Kirkevaag of the album:

"We've been away for seven years. It's been a long wait, both for you and us, but we're back, and back with a vengeance. Like always before, we've made an album that represents absolutely nothing except exactly the music we want to make.

"We want to make music that is different. We want to make music that assumes that the listener is too smart to accept stale, second-hand ideas hidden in non-threatening commercialist packaging and production. We want to make music that demands your attention, that you must invest in to understand, but that will keep giving you something fresh on the tenth and the hundredth listen. We want to make music that is true and real and living, that freaks you out or thrills you, that you love or hate, but that will never leave you indifferent.

"That's what 'Red In Tooth And Claw' is about to us, and what we hope it will be about to you as well. Pay your dues to howl with the underdogs!" More...

Dutch Doom Days Kicking Off 15th Edition

Dutch Doom Days is an initiative taken by the members of the doom metal group Officium Triste (now signed to Transcending Obscurity Records) that takes place October 28th and 29th. Pim Blankenstein comments:

“We are proud to be able to present such a solid line-up again. Especially since it’s the 15th edition. We’ve had bands like Saint Vitus, Trouble, Evoken, or Revered at previous editions and it is hard to put together a great line-up.

"But we also feel it’s our task to give lesser known and upcoming talented bands a chance. I think we have always succeeded doing this and I’m sure we’ll be able to do the same in the years to come.”

The album was produced by the band and Jens Borgen of Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden. Album artwork was created by Filipino artist Camille Della Rosa. Andreas Kisser states:

"I found the work of Camille Della Rosa during some research I was doing to look for alternative artists to work on the cover of our new album. I had the concept in my mind and the name of the album, Machine Messiah, but that didn’t matter much since I was looking for different styles and ideas, different artists. When I saw her paintings I was really impressed by her style, full of colours and meaning, very unique and alive! She comes from the Philippines, a place where we performed some years ago and we could feel the intensity of their culture, very powerful! She has that power in her paintings and drawings! More...

Circle Of Dust Reveals New Album Details

Industrial music pioneer Circle of Dust just announced a new full-length studio album titled "Machines of Our Disgrace," due out December 9th via FiXT after a near 20 year hiatus.

Created by artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, Circle of Dust returns to Klayton’s industrial roots with metal riffs, pulsing electronics and catchy songwriting. The album will be available for pre-order on November 18th. The following press release was also issued:

"Returning for the project's 5th full-length album, Circle of Dust pushes the envelope in fusing modern metal and electronic production with gritty industrial noise & samples on 'Machines of Our Disgrace.'

"Klayton incorporates both aggressive and melodic vocals with thought provoking lyrics about man’s technological evolution, with songs like 'Contagion' and the title track 'Machines of Our Disgrace' questioning our relationship with technology while 'alt_Human' and 'Neurachem' explore the world of biohacking and genetic modification.

"The tracks 'Hive Mind' and 'Humanarchy' provide commentary on man’s place in modern society’s political and scientific moral ambiguity. The emotionally charged 'Outside In' shows Circle of Dust's softer side in a heart-gripping track with lush harmonies, acoustic guitars, pulsing sound design and introspective lyrics." More...

BlackRain Posts Animal Activism Video

French retro-influenced metal band BlackRain dropped a full-length UDR music offering titled "Released" earlier this year. Today, BlackRain is revealing an animal activism music video for the album track "Run Tiger Run," which voices the band's concerns about the poaching industry.

Joining in the music video is French comedian Remi Gaillard, who portrays a tiger being hunted in the woods, running for his life. He is eventually rescued by fellow guest star Gilles Lartigot.

Bassist Matthieu De La Roche states, "The idea behind this video was to collaborate with Remi Gaillard and Gilles Lartigot as we've recently discovered we share the same concerns in animal welfare. It was great fun to create a video that sees the mutual collaboration of an internet sensation, a writer and musicians.

"Activists have much more to tell about the subject and possibly in a much better way we could ever do. We just wanted to express in our own way our feelings about the drama that appears every day in this world: 150,000,000,000 animals are killed just for food each year. Can you imagine that?" More...

This Will Destroy You Rereleasing "Young Mountain"

On June 6th, 2006 (06.06.06), Texas-bred instrumental collective This Will Destroy You unleashed debut "Young Mountain" and never looked back. Initially recorded as a demo/document to commemorate four guys' college band, the scope never centered around the notion of the music being commercially released, as most of the band members intended to move on to more traditional careers after school.

The initial pressing was a mere 1000 copies, just enough to have something to sell at the merch table on the inaugural tour with labelmates Sparrows Swarm And Sing and the label's mailorder.

What happened from there can only be described as a true overnight sensation. The album's soaring guitar-lead dynamism, cascading cinematic passages, and jarring crescendos captured the hearts and minds of independent music listeners immediately upon release and has, a solid decade later, yet to loosen its grip.

As "Young Mountain" celebrates its ten-year anniversary, a retrospective look at the six-track, thirty-six-minute composition comes online. Magic Bullet will celebrate this groundbreaking offering with a special reissue next month on CD, digitally, and vinyl, and includes a previously-unheard song entitled "Sleep" recorded during the tracking of the album but omitted from the original pressing.

The lost track is currently streaming via the A.V. Club here while the rest of the album is available below. More...

Ghost Bath Enters The Studio

The depressive black metal merchants from Ghost Bath have entered the recording studio once again with producer Josh Schroeder, to record the follow-up to "Moonlover." Vocalist and mastermind Nameless has released the following statement regarding the as-of-yet-untitled-album's musical direction:

"My own description of my approach for this album is better described in a quote I read recently in Herman Melville's Moby Dick:

To enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself. If you flatter yourself that you are all over comfortable, and have been so a long time, then you cannot be said to be comfortable any more. For this reason a sleeping apartment should never be furnished with a fire, which is one of the luxurious discomforts of the rich. For the height of this sort of deliciousness is to have nothing but the blanket between you and your snugness and the cold of the outer air. Then there you lie like the one warm spark in the heart of an arctic crystal.

"Contrast is what creates stronger feeling and emotion in this album. A joyful ecstatic experience will further the potency of depression, drenched in the surrealism of the cosmos and afterlife."

A late spring 2017 release is tentatively expected via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. More details are due to be revealed shortly.

High Fighter Recalls "Darkest Days"

Hamburg-based sludge laden power doom band High Fighter issued a new music video for the song "Darkest Days." The song appears on the latest album "Scars & Crosses," issued back in June via Svart Records.

In the typical High Fighter manner, this new video comes like the previous visual works of the band, in a 100% DIY production. Fuzzy, dark, lots of headbanging, and with a wild soundmix of bluesy stoner riffs, screams you will feel to your bone

As vocalist Mona Miluski explains, "Since we're releasing this video today, exactly two years ago when we unveiled the band to the public and released our first EP that day, so many great moments, shows, new friends and experiences followed for us, I see this new video for 'Darkest Days' as some cool and trippin' summary of two more-than-amazing years of our short and young band history already. Our bassist Constantin again did such great job on the video! He edited it all by himself, and it's again a pure do-it-yourself production. We used several live footage from our shows the past two years, and took some behind the scenes from tours and when we've been on the road. It's a very dark track and video but More...
