Corrections House (Neurosis, Eyehategod, Nachtmystium and Yakuza) debut their new video for "Grin With A Purpose." It's… well, it's something. (more…)
Commence the spraying of loads upon loads inside your pants!
Corrections House, a new all-star group comprised of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) are launching their new project on the world of heavy music with a tour of the east coast set to kick off on January 21st. (more…)
Distressingly, the majority of Yakuza reviews still focus heavily on the alchemical influence the Chicago music scene has had on the band – noise rock, jazz, and industrial all writ large in the Windy City corpus – which is not so much erroneous as unfair, a fundamental if indeliberate underselling of what Bruce Lamont and his band mates bring to the table.

It's officially Oscar-qualifying season in the world of metal. You heard me right. Of course, I don't mean movies, but doesn't the same principle apply to both mediums? Release your shit at the end of the year, stay fresh in people's minds for the award season. Because, honestly, who the hell remembers what was released in January? It's a smart tactic and we all benefit, as we're likely to see a steady stream of huge releases from now until December. Last week saw the release of four giant albums, and this week we see a ton more, of which include releases from Dethklok, My Dying Bride, The HAARP Machine, and Yakuza. So let's get to it. Here are all the new releases coming out today: (more…)
Audio Roundup: New music from CRADLE OF FILTH, AS I LAY DYING, THY WILL BE DONE, YAKUZA and DECEASED
It's Friday! The weekend is so close, I can taste it. Then again, that could just be my lunch. Eww. Let's get to the music:
Cradle of Filth put out a new song today and…I don't hate it. That's a particularly snarky review of the song, but only because a lot of the band's recent output was pretty terrible. This is not terrible. The track is “For Your Vulgar Delectation” and it comes off the album The Manticore and Other Horrors, which is released October 30th via Nuclear Blast. Check it out:
This is rather exciting. Celtic Frost frontman, Tom G. Warrior's new project Triptykon has scheduled their first US tour and they have some great support lined up with 1349 and Yakuza. The tour kicks off October 6th in New York and wraps up on the 30th of that month in Houston. Here is the full itinerary: (more…)
Holy fuck! Somebody had the brilliant idea to get a bunch of stonery doomy sludge bands to cover a bunch of PINK FLOYD songs, arguably the greatest stoner band ever. The project is being called Like Black Holes in the Sky: The Tribute to Syd Barrett, and features covers by JESU, INTRONAUT, KYLESA, DREDG, UNEARTHLY TRANCE, YAKUZA and more.
Really, its a who's who of awesome bands covering (in this humble blogger's opinion) the awesomest band of all time. The fine people at Dwell Records have posted a player streaming this amazing CD in its entirety. Listen to this compilation in all of its awesomeness, after the jump… (more…)
