PIG HEART TRANSPLANT – Iron Lung-Related Industrial/No Wave Project To See Release Via 20 Buck Spin

Posted in extreme music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Pig Heart Trans

The second full-length of demolition from PIG HEART TRANSPLANT — the solo works of one Jon Kortland of Iron Lung – has been declared for release this September, as a conjoined release between 20 Buck Spin and the band’s own Iron Lung Records.

The alter ego of Jon Kortland, one half of surgical powerviolence duo, Iron Lung, PIG HEART TRANSPLANT delivers both a vicious beating and violent outcome, however the operating methodology is an entirely different animal; slow, churning, industrial, electronic, painfully percussive, a bureaucratic nightmare of State Power with gears grinding the individual into a hallow shell, perfectly molded into one of Them. This is 1984.

Kortland’s second opus, For Mass Consumption is composed of twenty-eight tracks, each approximately forty-four seconds long, each song bearing a four-letter word, structured in a perfectly palatable way for optimum group adoption and mindless adherence to common purpose. Electronic manipulation, no wave guitar noise, abrasive hammering and eerie synthetic ambiance imbue the listener with the seedy malaise of manipulation on a societal scale. One might recognize the pulverizing brutality of early Swans on tracks like “Film” or “Pigs,” the pulsing throb of Brighter Death Now and IRM on “Coma” or even Robert McNaugton’s soundtrack work for Henry: Portrait Of Serial Killer on “1970” or “1980.”

________________________________

For the first widespread preview of this aural torture, tune in to the fourth track from For Mass Consumption, “Born,” being broadcast from THIS LOCATION.

Undoubtedly a horrifying work of aural terror, PIG HEART TRANSPLANT‘s For Mass Consumption is the logical result of a culture bent on banal conformity and the futile struggle against its domination. 20 Buck Spin is pleased to bring this tormented future vision into the present in collaboration with Iron Lung Records. The album will storm North America first via 20 Buck Spin on September 2nd, followed days later on September 8th upon European populations. Vinyl and cassette editions will follow via Iron Lung Records shortly after.

New performances among the humans should be considered forthcoming, alongside additional previews of For Mass Consumption and more. Devotees of early Swans (early), SPK, Test Dept, Bastard Noise, Pharmakon, Godflesh and of course, Iron Lung, get hip to this one.

For Mass Consumption – Track Listing:

1. Drug, 2. Film, 3. Gift, 4. Born, 5. Male, 6. Numb, 7. Pigs, 8. Acts, 9. Pray. 10. Swim, 11. Thaw, 12. Coma, 13. Copy, 14. 1970, 15. Dirt, 16. Used, 17. Cuts, 18. City, 19. Line, 20. Home, 21. Scum, 22. Safe, 23. Half, 24. Edit, 25. Belt, 26. Mute, 27. Sold, 28. 1980

WINDFAERER – New Track Stream Posted

Posted in Black Metal, Extreme Metal, folk metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Garden State Blackened Metal troupe WINDFAERER are currently streamingA Glimpse of Light,” the second track off their new EP, Solar. The self-released follow-up to the band’s critically-acclaimed Tribus debut was recorded with Bobby Torres at Frightbox Recording in Clifton, New Jersey and offers up seven tracks of sadistic beauty laden with elements of Black and Melodic Death Metal while exuding a folkloric edge.

Check out A Glimpse of Light” at THIS LOCATION.

Literally meaning “one who travels with the wind,” as in a vessel at sea, WINDFAERER began as a means of self-expression for guitarist/bassist/vocalist Michael Gonçalves, inspired by his Hispanic/Iberian heritage and fueled by his passion for Extreme Music. With WINDFAERER, he focused his energies on creating a melodic, blasting and emotional entity and eventually recruited like-minded musicians in violinist Benjamin Karas and drummer JP Andrade.

Gonçalves notes: “This music is a vessel for my expression. WINFAERER is not to follow trends or be part of a scene of some sort; it is about independence and being true. Solar feels like a healthy progression for WINDFAERER‘s music,” he continues. “I’ve included more input from my bandmates in the writing process and we’re excited to show the world our brand of Metal with this EP. We are more energized than ever to keep creating.”

GLORIOR BELLI: Band Issues The Great Southern Darkness Video Teaser

Posted in Black Metal, Extreme Metal, extreme music, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

French Black Metal goliaths, GLORIOR BELLI, recently issued a video teaser for upcoming new full-length, The Great Southern Darkness. Check it out now at Revolvermag.com.

The Great Southern Darkness offers up 11 tracks that magnify  GLORIOR BELLI‘s finest qualities: Debilitatingly fast, yet simultaneously dark and swampy with all the Americana/Stoner/Blues elements the band and their fans have come to embrace. Said Revolver in an advance review of the record: “The album combines vicious Black Metal riffery with deep New Orleans Stoner grooves to create a Metal monolith that is equal parts northern blaze and southern trendkill.”

Formed in the suburbs of Paris during the close of 2002, what began as a noxious duo soon became an untamable beast, acting as a beacon for everyone looking to free themselves of the influence of the Demiurge. Lyrics and themes explored throughout the years reveal a sincere inclination for rebel-ism and a sense of poetry. Today, the name GLORIOR BELLI has garnered a stellar reputation in the Extreme music community for mixing desert rock textures with the brutal, ominous, doom-laden vibe typical of Black Metal. But don’t bother trying to restrain that which cannot be confined, for this is merely the greatest curse of the cosmic scheme.

The Great Southern Darkness is scheduled for a North America release on September 27, 2011 via Metal Blade Records.

Check out “Secret Ride To Rebellion” at the band’s official landing page, where you will also find pre-order details, HERE.

LONG LIVE GLORIOR BELLI.
