Michigan City, Indiana’s own Sludge/Stoner band YELLOWTOOTH is preparing to hit the studio in September to record Crushed By The Wheels of Progress, the follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut album Disgust.

The album will be released through Orchestrated Misery Recordings. The band has eight songs ready to be sent into the audio stratosphere. Song titles include “Before I Return to Dust,” “The Spiral Stairs,” “Meet Mr. Mossberg,” “Climbing the Mountain,” “Manifesto,” and “Season’s End.”

Guitarist/vocalist Henry McGinnis commented on the new material:

“We haven’t really changed our writing style since the debut came out, but refined it a bit to suit our needs. Having been together since 2008 it’s just a natural progression of who we are.  The songs are still very heavy, and some parts still have the southern flair we have grown to enjoy since the beginning.”

YELLOWTOOTH is also gearing up for several shows this fall in the Chicagoland area with label-mates PSYCHOMANCER.

“‘Southern-fried stoner-sludge-doom?’ Fuck it. It’s heavy. It’s bad-ass. And it’s perfect when you’re chasin’ Beam with Busch Light.” – Heavy Planet

SECRET CUTTER – Independent Debut LP From Pennsylvania Trio Destroys Everything

Posted in metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 4, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Secret Cutter - promo band pic - 2014 - #03202

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based trio, SECRET CUTTER, has independently released their debut full-length LP, Self Titled.

Following SECRET CUTTER‘s debut EP, If You Don’t Hate Yourself, You’re Not Paying Attention, released on Square of Opposition Records, now crawls forth in the form of Self Titled, the band’s first full-length release. With over twenty-six minutes of new material, fully produced by the band at drummer Jared Stimpfl’s Captured Recording Studios, a maelstrom of their most forceful songwriting, and eclectic, brutal musical dementia comes alive with ten vigorous tracks.

Self Titled has already been picked up by random popular media outlets, including MetalSucks, who freaked over the LP: “They’re taking what bands like Nails, Black Breath and The Body are doing and somehow making it even more visceral, even more intense.” About.com was fully blown by trio’s delivery, stating, “A three-piece shouldn’t sound this heavy, but Allentown, Pennsylvania’s SECRET CUTTER manages to pull off the impossible… If you have even an inkling of a grind or sludge gene in your DNA, you need to check these guys out.” Echoes And Dust described the album as “…heavy sludge/grind/doom that is judiciously laced with feedback and a bit of punk rock intensity. You won’t believe it but the band is a three-piece, with just a drummer, guitar player, and vocalist. Your jaw will be on the floor less than ten seconds into the first track.”

Released through their own Bethlehem Rust label, Self Titled is available for digital download as well as LP, in three different colors of vinyl which all include a digital download is included.

Self Titled can be streamed in its entirety and purchased RIGHT HERE.

SECRET CUTTER is at once familiar, utilizing the unchained tactics of Deadguy or Converge but conveyed through a sludge-filled wall of sonic concentration in the ways of Eyehategod, Floor or Godflesh; yet their inimitable delivery is instantly infectious fully on its own accord. Their enraged, grimy anthems have devastated audiences across the East Coast. The meager three-piece, vocalist Ekim, drummer Jared Stimpfl and guitarist Evan Morey – packing a backline sufficient to power a band twice their size, delivering a live show as intense as their recorded material.

Stand by for further updates on SECRET CUTTER in the coming weeks as the band confirms new live assaults throughout the tri-state area and more.

Self Titled – Track Listing:

1. Mirror Mirror

2. Deformed Eye

3. 17.5 Dead Air

4. Craving the Silence

5. Vow of Poverty

6. Shake the Malevolent

7. Midtro

8. End of Sylvan

9. Headache Ball

10. Driftwood

Eyehategod - promo band pic - 2014 - #996610

Comments vocalist Mike IX Williams, “Turns out folks are as psyched up as we are about the new EHG album. The current tour is off the hook and the response has been completely fanatical!”

Critical Praise:

“…this entire album at times feels like being engulfed by a wet blanket on a 90-degree day… To say that this album is a triumphant return, or ‘the album we’ve all been waiting for’ are elephantine understatements. This album holds its own against some of the best of their canon and that alone makes it one of the best metal albums you’ll hear this year.” – Metal Insider

“…it’s all killer, no filler…” – Hellbound

HULL – Brooklyn Sludge Rock Cooperative Issues European Tour Wrap-Up; Live Footage Posted

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on May 4, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Hull Legend Of The Swamp Goat - promo cover pic - 2014 - #3349

Long-running Brooklyn sludge rock cooperative, HULL, recently wrapped up a two-week run of live takeovers through Europe. Joined by Boston doom bringers, Elder, the journey commenced in Tilburg, where the band systematically leveled the stage at Roadburn with their vibrating walls of hypnotic dirge.

Recounted bassist/vocalist Sean Bryant Dunn from their final show in London: “Our journey began in Tilburg for the Roadburn festival where we had the opportunity to play and hang out with some amazing friends, old and new. The following two weeks we burned many a mile with our new brothers Elder, reducing stages to rubble. There will not be a moment without the thought of touring with these boys. With that, I’ll say thanks to everyone that helped us out, put us up, fed us and for wrecking their necks at the show. Europe truly understands how to appreciate and respect all artists. We will be back as soon as humanly possible!”

Check out live footage from the tour, below:

HULL recently released a brand “new” hymn entitled, Swamp Goat. Originally tracked in 2007, “Swamp Goat” laid dormant while the band penned material for their critically lauded Sole Lord full-length. After a grueling tour schedule and follow-up release, 2011’s sprawling Beyond The Lightless Sky full-length, “Swamp Goat” was lost in the caves and forgotten… until now.

The tune features on the band’s Legend Of The Swamp Goat seven-inch unleashed in February via HULL’s own Iron Orchestra Works imprint and Midnight Collective. Bearing the stunning artwork of Nathan Overstrom, the single appears on Side A while an etching occupies Side B. Legend Of The Swamp Goat comes in limited pink, blue, green, and white vinyl.

HULL will be playing a hometown return show next month at Saint Vitus where copies of the 7″ can be purchased direct from the band.

______________________________

HULL Live 2014:

5/17/2014 Saint Vitus Bar – Brooklyn, NY w/ Bloody Hammers [info]

HULL materializes as a massive entity, storming stages and immersing their audiences in a blanket of grandiose down-tuned compositions. A shifting fault line of decibel heavy harmony, this collective force converges in a collision of thrash, doom, classic rock, and formal orchestral works. HULL commands their listeners through each riff with incredible precision, as a seafarer guides vessels through ominous waters.

Submerged in cosmic soundscapes, HULL challenges the mind with flowing, off-time fugues and powerful, dynamic movements. Brace yourself for an onslaught of eruptive force as a new world of music is formed in the deafening clap of thunder that is HULL.

Purchase the Legend Of The Swamp Goat seven-inch, below:

“True to form, this ‘new’ tune bombards the listener from every angle with clever arrangements and bluesy bluster. ‘Swamp Goat’ is a hazy, hellbent ride through thickets of distortion and syrupy sludge.” – Noisey on “Swamp Goat”

LIONS OF TSAVO – Texas Metal/Sludge Trio Continues Spring Tour

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on April 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lions Of Tsavo - promo band pic - 2014 - #44307

Following the release of their Traverser LP via Toxic Assets in November, Austin’s caustic Sludge Metal trio, LIONS OF TSAVO, continue to tour the American landscape in support of the album. The band is currently embarked on their latest trek with another five cities still in its path, including Birmingham, Jackson, Shreveport and Dallas next to get slammed; this week LIONS OF TSAVO plow homeward.

LIONS OF TSAVO Spring Tour [remaining dates]:

4/29/2014 The Forge – Birmingham, AL
4/30/2014 TBA – Jackson, MS
5/01/2014 Fatty Arbuckle’s – Shreveport, LA
5/02/2014 Chichen Itza – Dallas, TX

After a long absence between releases, LIONS OF TSAVO returned with their long and winding third full-length manifesto, Traverser. While not far-removed from the attack shown on Firelung, the band splices in more breathing space in the newer material, and matched with their torrential onslaught of amplification, their debilitating, diverse alloy of metallic sludge is unquestionably more devastatingly memorable on Traverser. Eviscerating landscapes through blood spitting riffs and mind altering psychedelics, Traverser is both destruction and redemption incarnate; a conceptual album where the music, lyrics and artwork align, and cannot be separated. Washington-based Toxic Assets released the album on CD in November, while a vinyl edition remains on deck for release later in 2014.

Additional upcoming LIONS OF TSAVO live actions will be continually announced into the Summer months. In the meantime, stream all of Traverser and purchase the digital/CD versions of the record below:

SERPENTINE PATH – Debuts First Single From Sophomore Relapse LP

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on April 17, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Serpentine Path - Emanations - promo cover pic - 2014

Relapse Records has just released the first single to be released from the second LP from NYC morbid Sludge Metal kingpins, SERPENTINE PATH.

The highly anticipated follow-up to SERPENTINE PATH’s self-titled 2012 debut, Emanations, is the band’s first studio venture featuring new second guitarist Stephen Flam, the mastermind behind NYC doom/death legends, Winter – aligned with founding members Tim Bagshaw (ex-Ramesses, ex-Electric Wizard) and a triad of ex-Unearthly Trance members, bassist Jay Newman, drummer Darren Verni and vocalist Ryan Lipynsky (The Howling Wind). Capturing forty-five minutes of true sludge punishment from this true underground all-star team, Emanations was recorded by Newman, as with their debut, after which it was mastered at Audiosiege, the album dredging forth the band’s most demoralizing and anguish-filled slow-motion chaos yet, and fittingly enshrouded by striking artwork by in-house Relapse artist Orion Landau.

“Disfigured Colossus” is the fourth of Emanations‘ seven grueling tracks, and has been today released in several methods of dispersal, now playing at Youtube and Soundcloud HERE.

Listen to Disfigured Colossus, below!

Emanations will see release through Relapse on May 27th, 2014 on CD, LP and digital formats; preorders for the album can be placed HERE, and via iTunes HERE.
