This Fall, California metallers, SAVIOURS, will drop the molten fruits of their new full-length this Fall via a new partnership with France’s Listenable Records. Titled Palace Of Vision, their first full-length in four years was captured at Type Foundry in Portland, Oregon with the inimitable Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Taurus, Ommadon etc.) and boasts nine tracks of SAVIOURS‘ signature brand of towering riffs, colossal rhythms, infectious guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane.

“It’s a natural and logical continuation of where we left off with [2011’s] Death’s Procession,” said drummer Scott Batiste of the offering. “There are some doomy crushers and faster ragers.” As an added bonus, the record comes sheathed in the fittingly dark, intricately transfixing cover renderings of Derrick Snodgrass (Obliterations, Lecherous Gaze).

In anticipation of its arrival, today Cvlt Nation offers up the first helping of Palace Of Vision in the form of opening bruiser, Burning Shrine. Comments Batiste, “‘Burning Shrine’ is about watching the world burn as it is ruined by religious zealots. Crank it up, live evil or die!”

Adds Cvlt Nation: “This motherfucker is a straight raging jam! Fasten your seat belt, press play and let the mammoth riffs the band kicks out do the rest. Caution: SAVIOURS have been known to cause non-stop headbanging – you have been warned!”

Turn up and tune out at THIS LOCATION.

Palace Of Vision – Track Listing:

  1. Burning Shrine
  2. Cursed Night
  3. Devil’s Crown
  4. Flesh Of Fire
  5. Hell’s Floor
  6. Palace Of Vision
  7. The Beast Remains
  8. The Mountain
  9. The Seeker

In related news, SAVIOURS will bring their riffs to the stage with a pair of east coast/west coast fest performances with additional live incursions to be announced in the coming weeks.

SAVIOURS:

9/05/2015 Cosmic Sonic Rendezvous Festival @ The Wick – Brooklyn, NY

11/1/3015 Day Of The Shred Festival @ The Observatory – Santa Ana, CA

Still building upon the foundation that Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Motörhead laid, SAVIOURS enters their second decade in a new partnership with French label Listenable Records. Rooted in hardcore punk but preferring to cruise in outer space, the lysergic of SAVIOURS hessians have always brought a ton of swing and swagger to their forward-charging Heavy Metal. The band melds sounds from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, progressive rock, and proto-doom, and delivers it all with a snarling West Coast hardcore edge. The result is an absolute beast of a sound that is all SAVIOURS‘ own.

Since the 2005 release of SAVIOURS‘ debut EP, Warship, the band has worked relentlessly, touring North America, Europe, and Japan with the likes of Mastodon, Corrosion Of Conformity, The Sword, High On Fire, Saint Vitus and Clutch. In a few short years, SAVIOURS have risen to become stalwarts of the world’s Metal scene, ambassadors of an aggressive-yet-stoned West Coast vibe, inspired by the ’70s but totally real and relevant in 2015.

SAVIOURS:

Austin Barber – guitar, vocals

Sonny Reinhardt – guitar, vocals

Scott Batiste – drums

Andy Anderson – bass

Palace Of Vision will be released via Listenable Records on October 30th, 2015. Preorders to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Critical Praise:

“Cult heaviness…” – Spin

“A dual-guitar riff-fest inspired by NWOBHM and ’70s proto-doom.” – Revolver

“You know you’re playing a good set when your music not only commands the attention of the likes of J Mascis and Matt Pike, but you’re sounding so tight that it compels the two guitar greats to air shred like a couple of Maiden fans circa 1980.” – Decibel

Kaine - Justice Injustice - promo single cover pic - 2015 - #033MMMSS777

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

East Anglia has boasting rights to say that KAINE is from there. This NWOBHM revival band has me relieved to know they understand fully about the roots and trueness of Metal. KAINE have delivered a grand-slam with their newly released single: Justice Injustice. Listen to this song and buy it on their Bandcamp!! Trust Stone, I would never tell my Metal brethren to buy shit.

This new song from KAINE is so good, it has brought tears to my eyes. Fans of early Judas Priest, early Iron Maiden and Witch Cross etc. have to understand just how important of a song this is for their Metal library! Maybe this is too cliché to say only I don’t give a sweet and sour shit: KAINE kicks Metal ass. Period.

Rage Sadler is a vocalist that is top-tier. I have listened to this new song from KAINE so many times now that I’ve lost count. Everything about this song is perfect. Support KAINE by any Metal means possible. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone
