Just the name Grime is about all you need to take away to get an idea of whether you'll like their material or not. Add in that their latest album is entitled Deteriorate with a rotting, skinless corpse on the front cover and you have a band perfectly personified within the artwork. So if you're [...]
A couple years ago, I went to go see the first (and so far only) MetalSuck Fest in NYC, and among the many highlights of the night was a sludge-metal band by the name of Howl. The band was at once both raw and able to produce a dark, brooding atmosphere with a healthy mix [...]
Like it or not, the two-thousand-teens are the decade of Prog. Those inclinations needn't be manifested by way of King Crimson clones – the split second time signature changes of tech death and the freeform deconstructionism of post-metal all owe a tip of the hat to the genre – but make no mistake: the 70's loom large [...]
Greetings once again all you metal nerds. This was a rough week. Rough in a sense that there was almost too much good stuff to talk about from so many genres, subgenres, subsubgenres, etc. I could have gone on and on with this week's WEEKLY INJECTION, but alas, the fancy beer I can't pronounce is [...]
THE WEEKLY INJECTION: New Releases from ROB ZOMBIE, GEOFF TATE'S QUEENSRYCHE, and More Out Today – 4/23Posted on April 23rd, 2013
After a week of silence, the WEEKLY INJECTION has returned with a shiny new writer. There are a few gems on the list of albums dropping this week, but they are a few and far between. However, those that shine, do so quite well though. Now, without further introduction to my awkward writing style…. to [...]
Kylesa stream their new track "Vulture's Landing" off their upcoming album Ultraviolet. Are you ready for the super sludge?
Relapse Records has just announced the signing of Brooklyn's own coven of blackened sludge witches, Mortals. The band will be entering the studio this summer to begin recording their full length Relapse debut and the follow up to their 2012 EP, Death Ritual.
When you create something this fucking awesome, you have to give yourself some time to prepare. That is why details have been announced seven months in advance for Philip Anselmo's inaugural Horrorcore Horror Film Festival, which takes place this October in Austin, Texas. Not only will Eyehategod and Crowbar be performing during the festival along [...]
The slow tempo of a bass drum jolts on like a heartbeat through the speakers as the bass throbs and feedback wails. Wasting almost no time the droned, fuzzy guitars and throaty vocalist kick in. The tempo picks up slowly only to build more and more. Suddenly the song becomes a frenzy as the band [...]
Southern Lord would eat these guys up. No Salvation play a sludge/stoner-friendly hardcore that doesn't fit neatly into one category but would immediately gel on the current SL roster. For now they're self-releasing their debut EP, Faith, through Bandcamp (ie. digital only, which is where Southern Lord needs to step in… this is eminently vinyl-worthy).
Two years after breaking through with Furnace, Brooklyn's finest, Batillus, are back with Concrete Sustain, a collection of six fairly lengthy but surprisingly lean and focused updates on the band's industrial sludge repertoire. Representing more of a refinement of the existing Batillus sound rather than an evolution per se, Concrete Sustain dials back the atmospherics just a smidge without sacrificing any of [...]
If your idea of heaviness is congruent with screamed vocals, you won't find Habitual Levitations any uptick in brutality over the previous Intronaut album, Valley of Smoke. If you've read any band interviews in the last couple of years you know by now that the sludge groans are a thing of the past, which is all for the best [...]
Holy shit! In stark contrast to last week, the labels seem to be operating under the assumption that you have plenty of capital left over from your Spring Break partying, because they're seriously not fucking around with this week's releases. I know touring season is kicking into high gear but goddamn…
Last I looked the economy was still in the shitter, so the theme of this year's preface is doing SXSW on the (relative) cheap. The main misconception that I hear about SXSW – even among fellow Austinites – is that it costs a fortune to attend. Yes, it's true that if you plan on attending [...]
