BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH – Signs To Neurot Recordings; Long-Awaited Debut Full-Length To See Release In Spring 2015

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 23, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth - band logo - B&W - 2014 - #0011

Keeping up a long-held tradition of bringing forth some of the heaviest music from the darkness of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle’s Tad Doyle (formerly of TAD, Hog Molly), delivers his strongest songwriting and performance to date with his newest project, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH. This powerful trio of musicians – Tad on guitar/vocals alongside veteran bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Annunaki), will release their long-awaited debut LP in early 2015 on Neurot Recordings.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH fuses together the collective and extensive rock histories and experiences of its three members in the worlds of punk, hard rock and metal.

Says Steve Von Till of the signing: “All of us at Neurot Recordings are so incredibly fired up about having the opportunity to be a part of this release. For me personally, Tad has been responsible for some of my favorite guitar driven noise of our generation not to mention the fact that it is an absolute pleasure to be working together with such great human beings. Witness the return of Tad with BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH!”

Stay tuned for further BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH developments, including audio teasers, as they transpire.

NEUROSIS – To Conquer Housecore Horror Film Fest; First Ever Australian Tour Nears

Posted in metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on July 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Neurosis - promo live band pic - 2014 - #99036

As the lineage of NEUROSIS nears its thirty-year mark, the band continues to perform across the planet sporadically but steadily, not having toured this heavily since the earlier years of their career, in seemingly unending support of their 2012-released tenth studio LP, Honor Found In Decay.

This week, NEUROSIS has confirmed their participation in this year’s colossal Housecore Horror Film Fest. The second installment of the gathering, set to run from October 23rd through 26th in Austin, Texas, will see NEUROSIS joining the lineup of bands which also includes Decapitated, Lustmord, Danzig, Samhain, Eyehategod, Vader and a rash of others. The Housecore Horror Fest performance falls directly in line with NEUROSIS‘ set at the four-day Southwest Terror Fest III: The Western Front, where they’ll headline the main stage on Saturday, October 18th, joined by The Body, Author & Punisher and Sorxe, followed by a concert in Denver the following evening, Sunday, October 19th, with Subrosa and In The Company Of Serpents supporting.

Preceding their upcoming US live actions, and following their most recent European run which included sets at Graspop and Tuska Open Air festivals, on the first week of August, NEUROSIS prepares to venture into Australia for the first time ever in just over two weeks on a six-city trek through Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney between July 4th and 9th, with two shows scheduled in Sydney.

NEUROSIS – Tour Dates:

8/04/2014 The Hi Fi – Brisbane, Australia w/ Hope Drone [tickets]

8/05/2014 HQ – Adelaide, Australia w/ Space Bong [tickets]

8/06/2014 Capitol – Perth, Australia w/ Drowning Horse [tickets]

8/07/2014 The Corner Hotel – Melbourne, Australia w/ Clagg [tickets]

8/08/2014 The Hi Fi – Melbourne, Australia w/ Whitehorse [tickets]

8/09/2014 Manning Bar – Sydney, Australia w/ Adrift for Days [tickets]

10/18/2014 Rialto Theatre – Tucson, AZ @ Southwest Terror Fest [tickets]

10/19/2014 The Gothic Theatre – Denver, CO w/ Subrosa, In The Company Of Serpents [tickets]

10/23-26/2014 Housecore Horror Film Fest – Austin, TX [tickets]

NEUROSIS has become an institution of heavy music. From their beginnings as a hardcore punk band in the mid-’80s to their gradual evolution into a transcendent and genre-defying collective, the Oakland, California natives have broken ground at every turn, pioneering a sound that influenced heavyweights like Isis, Mastodon and High on Fire.

Denver Black Sky - promo festival flyer - 2014 - #1001

Earlier this week, DENVER BLACK SKY – set to take place August 2nd and 3rd at the Gothic Theatre and Moe’s BBQ – revealed on their official Facebook page plans to extend the lineup of their two-day, three-stage event with three additional acts. Wild speculation began almost immediately with fans throwing out the names of bands they dreamed to see and now the secret is out.

The doers of the event are pleased to welcome Mexican death grind perpetrators, Rottenness, who feature within their ranks Mile High City metal veteran Ben Pitts on vocals. The band will drag their own special brand of filthtified death metal to the DBS stage on Saturday.

Also making their way to the ceremony of chaos is Los Angeles powerviolence troupe Maladjusted whose female-empowered, vegan hardcore will only add more punk angst to an already crusty Sunday.

Finally, DENVER BLACK SKY welcomes iconic grindcore/crust combatants, Nausea, to their riotous bill. Born into the emotional wasteland known as Los Angeles, Nausea has been spreading their sonic disease since 1987 and will grace the stage Sunday evening.

_____________________________

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM – Reveal Details On New Recordings

Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Wolves In The Throne Room - promo band pic - 2014 - #66709

Following the November release of their BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini two-track live 12″ via Southern Lord, new recordings from WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have been confirmed for a 2014 release. Following several months of anticipation, the Cascadian Black Metal clan comprised of brothers Aaron and Nathan Weaver now humbly unveil their impending full-length release, Celestite.

Taking a different approach than their previous LPs, Celestite is a completely newly envisioned, parallel-universe version of Celestial Lineagethe beautifully blackened fourth studio full-length epic WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM released via Southern Lord in 2011. Celestite arises with a whole new, ethereal approach. There are no drums and no vocals. Rather, deep, heavy crystalline synthesizer journeying, Eno-inspired analog processing and arcane acoustic instrumentation expand upon dimensions folded within the universe of Celestial Lineage.

__________________________

The Weavers tell us: “To make Celestite, we delved into the subterranean sonics that are buried in the mix of Celestial Lineage. We isolated them, processed them and took this unearthed soundscape as our starting point. Upon this base we recorded an entirely new album. Some melodies from Celestial Lineage are recognizable, but these familiar sounds appear as ghosts, barely tethered to the original compositions. This new album is an unorthodox foray; a fully instrumental, experimental companion record to Celestial Lineage. We left some work undone with Celestial Lineage. The recording of that album in the Winter of 2011 was a monumental project for us personally, and the creative fire from those recording sessions was still burning. This recording process was an opportunity to journey into our own inner universe to complete that which needed to be completed.”

Paired once again with producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Master Musicians Of Bukkake), Celestite came to fruition at Avast Studios and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s own Olympia-based studio Owl Lodge. While cloistered during the recording sessions they made use of a mammoth arsenal of crumbling vintage equipment including a Serge Modular System, Korg Poly6, Korg MS20, Korg Mono/Poly, Roland Juno 106, Roland Jupiter 6, Roland Super jx10, Jomox Airbase 99, Access Virus and more. The album also features a guest wind ensemble including friends Josiah Boothby on French Horn, Steve Moore (Earth, Sunn O))), Stebmo) on Trombone, and both Mara Winter and Veronica Dye on flute.

____________________________

The upcoming release of Celestite is doubly exciting for WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM as it will mark another new venture for the duo; the inaugural release on their own new label, Diadem Records. The band states, “Diadem Records is the imprint we created to release Celestite and future albums. Most importantly for us, working on this album has revealed a whole new vein of creative energy for WITTR. Now that the long trip of creating this album is finished, our appetite is whetted for future projects, thus we feel it necessary to pre-empt the inevitable chatter that will accompany the release of this record. WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM has not permanently abandoned the guitar and drums! We sense that one day, perhaps sooner, perhaps later, we will be inspired to return to our stacks of amplifiers and cabinets to create new music.”
