Smooth Sailing Premiere New Song "Stevie Ray Oiye"

Seattle sludge band Smooth Sailing stream their new song “Stevie Ray Oiye” below. The song is taken from the band's upcoming split album with fellow Seattle sludge band Into the Storm.

The band commented "The instrumental arrangements for each track are nods to people that have played an integral role in Smooth Sailing at one time or another. In this song it’s an ode to our former guitarist, Patrick. The lyrics however, are about domestic abuse. In this song a young girl saves her mother and younger sister from her physically abusive father, by hiding behind a door with a kitchen knife and stabbing him to death. Fuck abusers.”

Realms Of Vision To Release "Through All Unknown"

Creator-Destructor Records is excited to announce the late March release of Through All Unknown, the upcoming full-length from Bay Area-based Realms Of Vision.

Realms Of Vision began in 2015 and has been establishing a name for themselves regionally with their special blend of slow destruction. Featuring Frank Costa (Animosity, Entheos) and Corey Largent on guitars and vocals, Mike Ambrose (Set Your Goals) on drums, and Brandon McCubbin on bass, the California hard-hitters are road-worn experts in their craft, and the nine tracks that comprise Through All Unknown reveal that resoundingly.

While their debut EP introduced the world to the band's sonic intent, their debut album serves as a massive accomplishment in the band's progression. Costa explains: "Through All Unknown is an album about trudging down the path of reality. It explores life and death, the natural world, the dark powers that control our lives, and trying to connect with a spirit greater than ourselves. The music has expanded melodically and thematically from the Unrevenged EP, while keeping the influences heard on that release very much alive. Through All Unknown is the first major step in our identity as a band, and we can't wait to keep exploring."

Realms Of Vision will release Through All Unknown on CD, LP, and digital platforms on March 30th, 2018.
