Minnesota’s Extreme Metal experimentalists, THE CRINN, have returned with a face melting new track entitled Silent Betrayer!! Little has been heard from the band since the release of their debut full length album, Dreaming Saturn, via Nuclear Blast Records back in 2010. Aside from a few one-off live performances and few and far between social media updates, THE CRINN have been excessively quiet over the last few years.

All that changes with the release of Silent Betrayer, which is taken from their forthcoming album Shadowbreather. Silent Betrayer is now streaming via THE CRINN‘s Bandcamp page, as well as their Official YouTube Channel. The artwork for Shadowbreather has also been revealed and can be seen (below).

Vocalist John Nelson had the following to say about the upcoming release:It has been a long 4 years since we released our first full length record, Dreaming Saturn, and we are beyond pumped to showcase “Silent Betrayer” from our upcoming album entitled SHADOWBREATHER! The first thing people might notice, contrary to our last release, is that the new album was not formed as a concept. The direction we went with was to write individual songs that are somewhat shorter in length, more in line with our Self-Titled EP. Stylistically we have no rules. We write what comes to us. These songs are a true expression of our experimental nature with a bit of a focus on making our sound meaner and heavier. We really hope you enjoy “Silent Betrayer,” and we will be releasing more news on the album soon!!!

THE CRINN – Silent Betrayer:

Shadowbreather was recorded at Signaturetone Recording with producer/engineer Adam Tucker. A release date has not yet been set.

2014 also marks a decade of existence for THE CRINN, having formed during August of 2004 in St. Paul, MN. From its inception, the band decided to use an explorative writing style, without concern for genre exclusivity due to their frustration with the average and mundane, breakdown oriented metal scene. Their mixture of technical riffs, off-time grooves and jarring transitions has led to the band being labeled as mathcore, techmetal, techgrind, jazzmetal and even noodlegrind. Fans of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and PSYOPUS owe it to themselves to give THE CRINN a listen!

THE MELVINS STREAM “TRES CABRONES” VIA PITCHFORK ADVANCE

The Melvins - Tres Cabrones - promo cover pic - 2013

NEW YEAR’S EVE SHOW WITH MUDHONEY AT GREAT AMERICAN MUSIC HALL IN SAN FRANCISCO

______________________________________________

Oct. 30, 2013 – The Melvins are streaming Tres Cabrones (Nov. 5, Ipecac) in its entirety via Pitchfork (http://pitchfork.com/advance/271-tres-cabrones/).  Pre-orders for the record are available now: http://georiot.co/44Wg.

Tres Cabrones is as close as we’re willing to get to the Melvins 1983 line-up,” explained Osborne, of the 12-song album that reunites him, Dale Crover and original drummer Mike Dillard. “The best part is it’s all new songs. I specifically wrote tunes that would be good for these guys to play and it worked out great. We had no interest in rehashing tunes we wrote 30 years ago and chose instead to simply create NEW songs. It worked out perfectly.”

“Making the Tres Cabrones record was a real treat indeed. It’s a trip down memory lane complete with debauchery and ultra violence, ” said Dillard, who left the band in 1984 only to be replaced by Crover.

“After 30 years we release a record with the (almost) original line-up of the band,” added Crover. “I’ve always felt that drummer Mike Dillard was one of us. It’s great that he’s still a piece of the puzzle!  Plus, I get to see what it’s like being the bass player in the Melvins! Tres Cabrones indeed!”

The Melvins annexed Big Business band members Coady Willis and Jared Warren in 2006 for (A) Senile Animal and the quartet has remained in this incarnation for four additional releases including Everybody Loves Sausages, a covers album released this spring. Not ones to relax, the Melvins introduced Melvins Lite, a version of the band that teams Osborne and Crover with Trevor Dunn (Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle). Melvins Lite released their debut album, Freak Puke, in 2012 and subsequently embarked on a 51 date/51 State (including DC) tour of the United States. The band most recently celebrated their 30th anniversary with a six-week North American tour.

Up next for the band is a short stint in Australia with Helmet, a performance at the Meredith Music Festival on Dec. 13 and a recently announced New Year’s Eve performance with Mudhoney at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Calif.

ORBWEAVER – Full EP Now Playing; New Video Posted

Posted in experimental metal, experimental rock, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 17, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Orbweaver - 2013 - EP - Promo Cover Pic

Floridian psychedelic noise weavers, ORBWEAVER, recently dropped their brain-fraying Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon EP upon unsuspecting masses. Christened “twitchy, trippy tech death” by Invisible Oranges, the five-track Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon is a harrowing, multifaceted sound voyage through modulating realities recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche and mixed/mastered with Brian Elliot at Mana Recording Studios (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Exhumed).

ORBWEAVER spiral’s through the realms of psychedelia, noise, and a warped interpretation of Death Metal. Shifting between these erratic, trance-like elements, the foursome produce cosmic pandemonium reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled chaos. Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon was released earlier this month in alimited run of 100 cassette tapes via Primitive Violence Records:

http://www.primitiveviolence.com/index.html

Also available on CD direct through the band. The record is also available digitally via their official BandCamp page where you can twist your cranium to Strange Transmissions from the Neuralnomicon in full. Point your browser here: 

http://orbweaver-official.bandcamp.com

ORBWEAVER was forged n 2010 by guitarist/vocalist Randy Piro (ex-Hate Eternal, Gigan) and drummer Mike Pena. Together they recorded a self-titled, three-song demo. Shortly after, lead guitarist Sally Gates (ex-Gigan) and bassist Jason Ledgard joined the fold. Mike Pena parted ways with the group in 2013, and was replaced by drummer/percussionist Scott Spasiano.

The band will continue their stampede through the Sunshine State with another round of live takeovers. Additional shows to be announced in the coming weeks. Can’t make it to Florida? Peep the band’s new tripped out video for “Tragic Orbit: A Doomed Cosmic Star Ship” below:

Critical Praise:

 “…off-the-wall structureless noise tech that borders on the type of irreverence built by instrumental group Behold The Arctopus with insane space atmospherics.” – HeavyBlogIsHeavy

“Their uniqueness is engaging, but the fortitude of it is what really grasps you. With how immense and bizarre their spacey effects are, you will find yourself dumbfounded by the intensity of it. ” – The Age Of Metal

“…deranged, psychedelic death metal hurdling through space at speeds that make The Millennium Falcon look like your little sister’s moped.” — Orlandooom.com

NEUROSIS – Track From Forthcoming Album Streaming At NPR

Posted in experimental metal, experimental rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 20, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

With the new studio full-length from NEUROSIS set to erupt in late October, today the first track of the massive Honor Found In Decay to be made publicly available has been set loose via National Public Radio. The pyroclastic surge of “At The Well” coalesces the emotive and expansive elements of the act into a ten minute hymn, which helps reaffirm why NEUROSIS remain one of the most important heavy acts in existence.

Experience the slow burn of “At The Well” via NPR RIGHT HERE.

The fifth NEUROSIS album to be handled by engineering sorcerer Steve Albini, the hour-long Honor Found In Decay is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated albums of 2012. The seven tracks harnessed within this release capture the unit’s output at its most emotional and diverse yet, forming what the band members themselves are referring to as their pinnacle studio effort. NEUROSIS recently unveiled a visual trailer for the album using imagery shot and created by their own visual artist Josh Graham, and edited together by video architect Kenneth Thomas, who directed their 2007 Given To The Rising documentary. For the first time in the band’s history, intimate details of the handcrafted cover artwork have been made publicly available, allowing the installation to be viewed in motion, not just still photographs. View the trailer and more on Honor Found In Decay AT THIS LOCATION.

Set to see release through the NEUROSIS’ own Neurot Recordings, the CD and deluxe download versions of Honor Found In Decay will be unleashed in Germany October 26th, in the rest of Europe October 29th, and in North America on October 30th, with their previous label home Relapse Records handling the vinyl edition. Preorders will begin on October 15th via Neurot’s webstore HERE.

NEUROSIS confirmed UK performances:

11/30-12/02/2012 ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas – Camber Sands Holiday Camp, England [info]

12/02/2012 HMV Forum – London, England w/ Godflesh [info]
