Chilean / Belgian Epic Doom metallers KING HEAVY present La Gárgola, the first track off their upcoming self-titled, full-length debut album. “La Gárgola” (Spanish for “Gargoyle”) offers a good look at what’s to come when the album is released in early September. This is heavy and epic Doom Metal led by the multifaceted vocals of Luce Vee (Hooded Priest / Witchsmeller Pursuivant), melting into twisted and obscure melodies in the vein of Celtic Frost’s masterpiece Into the Pandemonium.

Check out the promo video for “La Gárgola” now at this location.

KING HEAVY is anything but the typical brand of mono-dimensional, superficial Doom Metal. KING HEAVY rocks! Aside from strong elements of CANDLEMASS and of the more traditional Doom Metal sound, KING HEAVY offers epic arrangements and a twisted touch that reminds of BLACK SABBATH’s Born Again, CELTIC FROST’s Into the Pandemonium and the early, darkest side of DANZIG. The album contains seven songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio (Chile). Vocals were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory (Belgium).

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH – Seattle Doom Merchants To Kick Off North American Live Incursion With Neurosis Next Month

Posted in Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , on June 30, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Debut Listed Among NPR Music’s 25 Favorite Albums Of 2015 (So Far)

Seattle doom merchants, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH, will bring their lumbering odes to stages throughout North America next month supporting Neurosis. Slated to embark on July 31st in Lawrence, Kansas, the trek will coil its way through sixteen cities, including one headlining performance, coming to a close on August 16th in Houston, Texas. Additional support will be provided by The Body, Sumac, Iron Tongue and Pinkish Black on select dates.

Comments legendary guitarist/vocalist Tad Doyle of the journey, “Being a huge fan of what Neurosis does for so long, we are really excited that we have the honor and privilege of being support for them on this tour. It is a gift for us to be able to do this.”

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH features Doyle, formerly of Tad and Hog Molly, bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki). The trio undraped their lead-footed, self-titled debut last February via Neurot Recordings. Captured at Robert Lang Studios and Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Eyehategod, Taurus, Ommadon et al), Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth splices thick, jagged riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions that blow soulfully hot and desolately cold, sometimes within the confines of one track and serves as Doyle’s first recorded release in nearly fifteen years.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH is the sound of earthly decomposition and planetary ruin; a slow, suffocating, spellbinding dance towards a looming apocalypse. Having already earned hails from fans and media globally, NPR Music recently listed the band’s debut among its 25 Favorite Albums Of 2015 (So Far) noting, “Seattle’s Tad Doyle has been at this heavy game coming on three decades now. With bands like Tad and Hog Molly, he could take a bummer riff and make it boil and hum in ways others just couldn’t. Years in the making, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH‘s debut is a thoroughly satisfying doom metal LP that is fully awake and teeming with power.”

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH:
7/31/2015 Liberty Hall – Lawrence, KS w/ Neurosis, The Body
8/01/2015 Mill City – Minneapolis, MN w/ Neurosis, The Body
8/02/2015 The Majestic – Madison, WI w/ Neurosis, The Body

8/16/2015 Warehouse Live – Houston, TX w/ Neurosis, Pinkish Black

Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth is currently available on CD or LP at THIS LOCATION.

“The Bros.’ debut lurches to life with a lumbering, grunge-influenced tune, ‘Lava’… From here, things slow down to funeral doom pace for much of the next six tracks/35 minutes. However, the doom and darkness is shaded with some interesting melodic textures and moments of lightness that come at unexpected times and add a dynamic gravity to the material.” – Decibel

OMMADON – UK Drone/Doom Duo To Undrape “Empathy For The Wicked” Via Golden Mantra This July

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , on May 30, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Ommadon - Empathy For The Wicked - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MO0529

Following the crushing doom of their critically adored, 2014 double LP, V, which earned a spot on Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Metal Albums Of 2014, UK drone/doom duo, OMMADON, continues their perpetual quest to achieve sonic annihilation of the self through unadulterated heaviness with Empathy For The Wicked. Boasting just one earth-rupturing track broken into two parts, Empathy For The Wicked was recorded live, mixed by OMMADON and mastered by recording legend, Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Zoroaster, Eyehategod, Taurus, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth etc.), who gave it the final crushing touches it deserves.

Where OMMADON‘s previous scores were all recorded in the Highlands of Scotland surrounded by forest, Empathy For The Wicked marks their first release to be recorded on an industrial estate in urban Northumberland surrounded by the dregs of humanity. The first track from Empathy For The Wicked was originally recorded for the cassette split with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood. During that session, OMMADON decided to continue recording through the night and drone out the riff which became the second side to Empathy For The Wicked.

Empathy For The Wicked will be released on 12″ vinyl via Golden Mantra on July 15th, 2015 with preorders available at: www.goldenmantra.co.uk. Teasers to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Critical Hails For V:

A hypnotic, dead-eyed combination where patience, misanthropy and endurance collide; a zombie chained to a pole walking the same ugly circle.” – Rolling Stone

“Split across four sides of vinyl, the double record was mastered by Billy Anderson… so you can bet your favourite Sunn O))) picture disc on this thing sounding heavier than a dying planet.” – Terrorizer

DEMON LUNG – Nevada Doom Bringers Unleash “Mark Of Jubilee” Via Decibel Magazine; “A Dracula” To See Release Next Month

Posted in doom metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on May 28, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Demon Lung - promo band pic - 2015 - #05DLMO0166

Las Vegas-based doom bringers, DEMON LUNG, will unleash the forlorn fruits of their A Dracula full-length next month via Candlelight Records. Captured by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Zoroaster, Eyehategod, Taurus, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth etc.), the record boasts eight dark, devious hymns centered loosely on Juan López Moctezuma’s 1977 horror film, Alucardain which two teenage orphan girls living in a Catholic convent unleash a demonic force and ultimately become possessed by Satan.

Alucarda is a more relatable story for me than our last album’s [The Hundredth Name] subject matter,” vocalist Shanda Fredrick issues, “which made writing a lot more fun this time around. The heroine in this story is the daughter of Satan, who happens to fall in love with the purest of souls in the convent she resides. She coaxed this soul over to the dark, with only intentions of love but in doing so she dooms her to death by the hands of the nuns. The anger consumes her and she uses her dark powers to resurrect her love and together they kill the convent and then the world.”

As a precursor to its official unveiling, today Decibel Magazine offers up sixth movement,Mark Of Jubilee” for public consumption at THIS LOCATION.

A Dracula comes nearly two years to the date from the successful release of the band’s critically lauded, 2013-released The Hundredth Name. Media applauded the band, especially Fredrick with Decibel Magazine gushing, “She emerges like a high empress, adding real soul to the quintet’s lurch.” Ghost Cult called the debut, “a modern doom masterpiece,” Las Vegas Weekly concurred noting, “Everything about DEMON LUNG‘s debut screams epic,” while New Noise Magazine gushed, “This record is mammoth. Bass riffs tuned low drag the listener into a dark, solemn swamp of evil. The atmosphere created is as important as each note plucked from Lucifer’s hairy hind quarters.” Added This Is Not A Scene accurately, “The future of doom seems to be in safe hands.”

DEMON LUNG is vocalist Shanda Fredrick, drummer Jeremy Brenton, guitarists Phil Burns and Brent Lynch and bassist Jason Lamb. A Dracula will be released via Candlelight Records on June 16th, 2015 with tour dates to be announced shortly. In the meantime, preorders are available at THIS LOCATION.

Chilean / Belgian band KING HEAVY is set to release its self-titled debut full length on Cruz Del Sur Music on September 4th in Europe and September 19th in the U.S.

KING HEAVY is anything but the typical brand of mono-dimensional, superficial doom metal. KING HEAVY rocks! Aside from strong elements of CANDLEMASS and of the more traditional doom metal sound, KING HEAVY offers epic arrangements and a twisted touch that reminds of BLACK SABBATH’s Born Again, CELTIC FROST’s Into the Pandemonium and the early, darkest side of DANZIG

The album contains seven songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio, Chile;  vocals were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory, Belgium.

Shortly after the release of the album, the band will engage an European tour which will bring them to Malta’s Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days, Biebob (the notorious Belgian metal club)… Other tour dates will be published and confirmed very soon!

KING HEAVY was formed in 2009 by ex-Procession founder Daniel Perez Saa and Luce Vee, known for being the vocalist of Dutch Doom Metal act Hooded Priest. Shortly thereafter guitarist Matias Aguirre and drummer Miguel Canessa were added to the line up and in 2014 the band self-released an EP entitled Horror Absoluto, which was later repressed on split-vinyl by French label Emanes Records.

Track List:

La Gárgola
Life A.D.
As Dawn Broke On The Day
Thirteen Chosen Ones
Wounds
The Crowning
He Who Spoke In Tongues

WAR IRON “Precession Of The Equinoxes” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , , on April 8, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

WAR IRON - Precession Of The Equinoxes - promo album cover pic - 2015

4.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

4.5 metal-fists-4-5-album-reviews-metal-odyssey

WAR IRON returns with another Sludge and Doom Metal offering: Precession Of The Equinoxes. Their style can even fall into a drone-like beat and it still crunches and rumbles along with a dynamite evil attitude, feel and sound. Due to the epic length of all 4 songs, this is an album I had to listen to many times, before even considering how much I like it or what to say about it. The total running time for this rugged album is: 35:62.

To me, the vocals from Baggy can very easily be interpreted as Black Metal. I can honestly say that Baggy comes across with a striking conviction towards the lyrical content of each song. Baggy also has demonic vocals, without question. I absolutely love the riffs and every guitar part played from Ross. 100% Doom and Gloom floods my ears from this album and when the dark chants kick in on Summon Demon Scream The Abyss, the eeriness all becomes so much more punctuated.

While I have listened to this War Iron album, I’ve repeatedly have had visions of being lost inside an endless, dark and cold cave, with stalagmites and stalactites filling the creepy atmosphere around me; thus I am overcome with some sort of nightmarish joy. In other words, this is Metal that honestly carries me away mentally to another world. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: Bludgeon Lord, Summon Demon Scream The Abyss, Precession Of The Equinoxes, From Napalm Altar

WAR IRON:

Baggy – vocals

Ross – guitar

Dave – bass

Marty – drums
