Lamentations Of The Ashen - Libertine Cyst - promo cover pic

Libertine Cyst To Release On January 20, 2015

LAMENTATIONS OF THE ASHEN, the blackened Doom Metal project of Bon Vincent Fry, will release their long-awaited album Libertine Cyst on January 20 2015.

Consisting of four epic tracks, Libertine Cyst is the follow-up to 2011’s EKIMMV. In regards to the album, Bon has released the following statement:

“Finally, after 3 years, I am pleased to present my 3rd full-length album, ‘Libertine Cyst’ to the world. This album was the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do musically. I was dealt an endless amount of obstacles (some self-created) which constantly resulted in delaying my progress. I feel that this record stands as a testament that the path of maximum resistance produces a more thoroughly honed work of art. I think the material contained here marks a new height in my song writing and atmosphere for this project. It’s hard to express how pleased and relieved I am to finally have this behind me and shift my gaze even further into the blackness beyond the stars. This is where it ends for me, and starts for everyone else.”

Praise for past Lamentations of the Ashen albums:

“After many repeated listens, I’m fucking way beyond just impressed! Every song on this album is a dark majestic voyage to a universe where the evil thoughts of others are murdered by our protective black dragons.”- Cvlt Nation

“Stirring the aether with bleak and depressive anthems of blackened doom, Lamentations of the Ashen achieves wonder in an audio sea of woe.”- Worm Gear zine

LIVE BURIAL – S/T EP Of Barbarous Deathly Doom Metal Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Live Burial - self-titled EP - 2014 - #66EP

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

LIVE BURIAL – The self-titled EP from Live Burial has made me proclaim it as: over  22 minutes of savage and doom ridden Death Metal, that can easily rip and tear your Metal soul apart. This is some of the most enjoyable Metal I’ve listened to in 2014; Live Burial is Death Metal with hefty doom influence that’s 100% underground and the real deal. Originating from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, this is a Death Metal band I’m more than elated to welcome across the Atlantic.

Jamie Brown offers up some disgustingly violent vocals and growls and the entire band plays some solid Death Metal, across 4 scathing songs, to my ears. Excellent! Live Burial prove they can play at eye-popping breakneck speed or slow it down to an evil Doom death march for the gathering of innocent mortal’s souls. The guitars without a doubt have some Tony Iommi influence snuck in there, with the rhythm section playing at a constant resounding capacity. Live Burial is an EP I won’t be forgetting about for quite some time, both nefarious and old school. Metal be thy name. – Stone

LIVE BURIAL – Track Listing:

1. Cast Back Into The Fire

2. Live Burial

3. Separation Through Evisceration

DOOM MASTERS’ RELEASE LANDS AT#2 ON HARD ROCK CHART

_______________________________

NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2014 – Electric Wizard, the UK-based Doom outfit led by the provocative Jus Oborn, have the outfit’s highest chart debut to date, with their Spinefarm Records’ debut, Time to Die, entering Billboard’s Top 200 at 62.

The nine-song release, featuring singles “I am Nothing” and “SadioWitch,” is also one of the band’s most critically acclaimed to date with Mojo Magazine declaring the album “the most uncompromising album of the year” and Pitchfork saying the album “deserves every accolade thrown its way” and going on to say “they’ve surpassed expectations and proved that they’re still as vital as they ever were.”

Produced by Oborn, the album was recorded at Toe Rag Studios in East London, with analog gear used exclusively throughout, with finishing touches done at Skyhammer Studio in “deepest, darkest” Cheshire by Chris Fielding.

ELECTRIC WIZARD SIGNING

Electric Wizard visit Fopp to celebrate the release of their new album, ‘Time to Die’.

When & Where? 

Thursday, 23rd October – 5:30pm – Fopp Manchester, UK

What?

Doom Metal legends Electric Wizard visit Fopp to sign copies of their eighth studio album ‘Time to Die’. Limited edition ‘SadioWitch’ 7-inch singles will be available in store.

Electric Wizard release the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2010’s ‘Black Masses’. ‘Time to Die’ saw the temporary return of original drummer Mark Greening, along with the addition of new bassist, Clayton Burgess. Latest single ‘SadioWitch’ is accompanied by the band’s first music video, created by the mysterious and alluring Shazzula Vultura.

The short film’s content is concisely summarised by frontman Jus Oborn, who describes it as ‘clandestinely filmed scenes of Luciferian depravity.’ The Guardian refer to the album’s tracks as ‘the mutant children of Black Sabbath’s revered blueprint’, while Pitchfork suggest that the track ‘Funeral of Your Mind’ is ‘the garage-rock-tinged psychedelic rocker… that Birmingham’s finest could’ve written if they had stuck with the drugs and off the telly’.

Electric Wizard - promo band pic - 2014 - #049930

Formed in Wimborne, Dorset, the band bonded over a mutual fascination with Black Sabbath, the occult, horror movies, vintage recording equipment and the 1970s. For over 20 years, Electric Wizard have recorded a series of landmark Metal albums, which amalgamate elements of Sludge, Stoner Metal, Black Metal and Doom. The band have recently performed a series of festival dates across Europe, including ‘Sonisphere’ UK, Portugal’s ‘Reverence Festival Valada’, ‘Hellfest’ in France and ‘Roskilde’ in Denmark.

The Electric Wizard creative core of Jus Oborn & Liz Buckingham will visit Fopp ahead of their gig at The Ritz, Manchester.

APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE – Release New Track And Album Art

Posted in doom metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Apostle Of Solitude - Of Woe And Wounds - promo cover pic - 2014

U.S. Doomsters APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE will release Of Woe and Wounds on November 14 in North America through Cruz Del Sur Music. Decibel Magazine is streaming album track “Luna” exclusively at this location.

With its oppressive and crunching sound, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE’s Of Woe and Wounds will rank among the heaviest album of 2014. From the 7-minute opener “Blackest of Times” to the ending “Luna,” APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE deliver an incredible performance that gives full sense to the sometimes-abused term “DOOM”. Mastered by Tony Reed (producer of last SAINT VITUS’ album “Lillie: F-65″), this album confirms APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE as a versatile, multi-dimensional doom band that offers the most Sabbath-inspired sound around these days, blended with personal, oppressive yet dynamic atmospheres such as those found in “Push Mortal Coil” or “Whore’s Wings” (re-recorded hits from their 2012’s demo), or the long and haunting “Die Vicar Die”.

The album also features the extraordinary work of talented Artist David Csicsely known for his illustrations of Mournful Congregation, Solitude Aeternus, Wheel, Flight of Sleipnir releases.The album was recorded by Mike Bridavsky at Russian Recording LLC in Bloomington, IN and later mastered by Tony Reed  (SAINT VITUS’ “Lillie: F-65). DOOM has never been so HEAVY! The vinyl version will contain two bonus live tracks.

Of Woe and Wounds – Track Listing:

Distance and the Cold Heart

Blackest of Times

Whore’s Wings

Lamentations of a Broken Man

Die Vicar Die

Push Mortal Coil

This Mania

OHHMS – Crushing Debut LP To See Release Via Holy Roar Records In October

Posted in doom metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Ohhms - Bloom - promo cover pic - 2014

OHHMS will flower into life with their sprawling, crushing debut LP, Bloom, this October via London-based Holy Roar Records.

This in, directly from the heads of the label on the addition of OHHMS to their roster:

“Whilst it could potentially sound disheartening to some, only one previous band has ever eventually ended up working with Holy Roar simply by sending us music. That band was Throats. The second band to end up part of the family in this manner is what you have in front of you here, right now. OHHMS.”

With just two tracks clocking in at a massive thirty-two minutes, OHHMS fuses elements of doom, post-metal, prog and psychedelia in stunning clarity and power thanks to Ian Sadler at Emeline Studios and Brad Boatright at Audiosiege mastering. Breathtaking macro minimalistic artwork courtesy of Black Sails Design more than ably demonstrates the concept of both the record and intent of this band. This is nuanced, controlled anger that knows when to lurk in dark recesses, and when to viscerally bare its teeth. If this leaves you none the wiser, then settle in for this undulating auditory journey. In simple terms – this is a new form of mature heavy music that blends elements of doom, post-metal and progressive/post-rock, without ever losing an undercurrent that crackles with a distinct energy. From small seeds…..

Fans of Harvey Milk, Isis, Pallbearer, Slabdragger, Rolo Tomassi at their most serene, as well as progressive and expansive classic rock are advised to get hip to OHHMS‘ output. Holy Roar Records will release Bloom on digital, CD and LP formats on October 6th 2014. View a trailer for the album below and place preorders HERE.

Bloom Track Listing:

1. Bad Seed

2. Rise Of The Herbivore

OHHMS Live:

9/15/2014 TBA – Ramsgate, UK

10/02/2014 Lady Luck – Canterbury, UK

11/21/2014 Windmill – Brixton, UK
