Metalunderground.com has teamed up with ambient act Gauchiste to offer a stream and exclusive download of the new song "Viols" via the player below. "Viols" is the opening track taken off the band's upcoming debut self-titled album, which is set to drop on January 17th, 2012 through Little Black Cloud Records.
"I think of Gauchiste as setting a mood for an abstract form of storytelling, a kind of lighting or fog that proliferates throughout a room. It's more like horror meditations," says Tannon Penland (Loincloth), one-third of the trio Gauchiste.
"Gauchiste" was mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Scorn, Lotus Eaters) who has worked with such acts as Sunn O))), Earth, and Goslings.
Says Tannon, "The idea of Gauchiste came to be out of a shared love of oppressively heavy music and abstract minimalist forms that moved us to ask the question 'How can we play with and communicate sonically the otherness or peripheral spaces in these worlds, that which hovers above them and around them?' We all love metal in our own way. I imagine some will hear Gauchiste as an extension of black metal, but it isn't at all. Metal in general is only a very small part of the end result."

The album's complete track listing is as follows:
2. When We Are Gone
3. Choeur I
4. The Light is Alone

Metalunderground.com brings you the exclusive premiere of the lead track off Autumns Eyes' new album, "Please Deceive Me." The song, titled "Icabod," can be heard in the player below.
Dan Mitchell commented on the song:
The track itself has it's own identity, as with most songs on 'Please Deceive Me'. However, the meaning is definitely more personal than the other tracks. It was written for my son, who is yet to be born. Some will call it corny, but I didn't write this for anyone else but my son. It's basically a promise to him before he enters the world. One day when he's old enough to make fun of his old man, I'll be ready for the insults. For now, it's more of a personal dedication. Besides, you can only go so far trying to be a tough guy who writes evil lyrics in this genre.
Here's the complete "Please Deceive Me" tracklisting:
2. Blood In the Woods
3. Anxiety Spiders
4. Please Deceive Me
5. So Close to Shadow
7. Cobwebs and Crosses
8. Red Wine and Resin
9. Haunting Your Daughter
10. The Wooded Road
"Please Deceive Me" was delayed from its planned Halloween release following a freak October snow storm that caused major power outages in the Northeast. The album will be released "soon" and you'll be able to hear the full album stream here first.
In related news, the winners of the Metalunderground.com-sponsored Autumns Eyes Halloween costume contest have been announced. You can see them here, along with rest of the entries.
Metal Underground.com caught up with Jimmy Bower backstage at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011. The Eyehategod guitarist and Down drummer updated us on his two bands' upcoming albums and tours.
"Yeah, we’re almost done," answers Bower on the topic of the new Eyehategod album. "We’ve pretty much have gotten it written. We’re just trying to practice it and get it tight. We’re hoping for the first of the year (for release). Basically, we just have to record it. Brian [Patton] lives in Maryland, now, so that makes it a little tougher. Mike [Williams] lives across the lake."
Bower addresses new song titles, "We played one song tonight, 'New Orleans is the New Vietnam.' There is a (new) song called 'Medicine Noose,"
Bower will join Down on tour and will see the release of the group's new EP in 2011. Bower elaborates, "We just finished our first EP out of four. That should be out in February or March." Bower did not attach any profound concepts to releasing four EPs: "It’s just an idea that we had."
The forthcoming Eyehategod album follows the group's 2004 EP "99 Miles of Bad Roads." The Fun Fun Fest performance was part of a mini-tour through New Orleans and Texas. The upcoming Down EP follows the group's 2007 full-length effort, "III-Over the Under."
