GREEN DRUID – Psychedelic Stoner Doom Collective To Release “Ashen Blood” Debut Full-Length Via Earache Records This March; Album Details Revealed Plus New Track Streaming

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on January 28, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Psychedelic Stoner Doom collective GREEN DRUID will release their debut full-length Ashen Blood via Earache Records this March. Brooding, atmospheric, and isolationist with weighty riffs summoning the Lovecraftian horrors of the cosmos, GREEN DRUID‘s music entrances listeners with tales of the Old Blood and of dismal worlds too soon forgotten.

Hailing from the land of Denver, Colorado – the first US city to legalize marijuana – GREEN DRUID worships at the feet of the monolithic amplifier, and performs holy communion with the tremorous onslaught of murky tones that emanate from its maw.

“While our first EP and foray into the world of doom could be viewed as us learning the ins-and-outs of the genre, Ashen Blood is where we really started to hone in on our own voice,” issues the band. “Taking influence from the dark fantasy landscapes of games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, we strove to create a truly doomed psychedelic experience.” Fans of Sleep, Electric Wizard, Sunn O))), Thou, Khemmis, The Sword, and Bongripper pay heed.

Ashen Blood will descend upon the ears of the worthy on March 16th on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorder bundles, go to THIS LOCATION.

DRIFT INTO BLACK – Atmospheric/Experimental Gloom Metal Project Featuring Former Member Of Grey Skies Fallen Releases “Shadow People” EP; Full Stream Available

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Drift Into Black - Shadow People EP - promo cover pic - 2017

For close to twenty years, Craig Rossi has handled keyboard duties for the Doom Metal band Grey Skies Fallen, recording four albums, two EPs, and two singles with the group. He’s performed numerous shows across the US sharing the same stage with the likes of Opeth, Anathema, Arch Enemy, Amorphis, and Katatonia. He’s since embarked on a new musical journey with atmospheric/experimental gloom metal project DRIFT INTO BLACK and his recently-issued Shadow People EP.

Boasting five depressive tracks, the eclectic sounds comprising Shadow People draw inspiration from a vast array of genres including dark rock, atmospheric, and Doom Metal. Rossi has taken on the task of vocals, guitars, keyboards, mixing, and mastering, along with the help of a hired session drummer. Notes Rossi, “I wanted the production on this EP to sound pale with less crisp than most records; a gloomy sound stage due to the fact that the lyrical content deals with dark human elements. If Anathema, Tiamat, Black Sabbath, and Katatonia all had a love child, DRIFT INTO BLACK would be it.”

Stream/purchase Shadow People in full via Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION or Spotify HERE.

Shadow People – Track Listing:

  1. Dawn Of A New Day
  2. Born Without Eyes
  3. A Funeral For My Enemies
  4. Drift Into Black
  5. Quicksand

BELDAM – To Release New Studio Album “PASUNG” On January 26th

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on December 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

BELDAM - PASUNG - promo cover pic - 2018 - #333MO9ILMN

Seattle (WA) – Horror Pain Gore Death Productions are set to release Pasung, the sophomore album from Doom/Sludge titans BELDAM, January 26 on CD and Digital formats.  New song “Vial of Silence” is streaming at youtu.be/emm4kEbWsVM or below:


Pasung is BELDAM‘s second release on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions and their first with new vocalist/lyricist Randall Guidry. The band recently relocated to Seattle, continuing their vision to play skull-crushing, soul-wrenching, paint-peeling Sludge with blackened touches. With influences ranging from Sleep, EyeHateGod, Graves At Sea, The Melvins and Black Sabbath, BELDAM combines a massive wall of guitars, thickened bass tones, bone-rattling drums and harsh vocals featuring lyrics building on the themes of death and despair. Pasung clocks in at 50 minutes of pure, unadulterated American Sludge.

Pasung was recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN, April 5-7, with additional tracking on August 31 and September 1, 2017. The album was engineered and mastered by Drew Carroll who recorded BELDAM‘s original 5-song demo in 2015. All guitars and bass on the recording were performed by Grahm Reynolds with the exception of “One from the Stable.” Cullen Wade handled the drums on the entire record. Pasung represents the truest BELDAM. The band focused a significant amount of time on songwriting and pre-production to get the heaviest tones and thickest riffs possible. After parting ways with their original bassist and relocating to Seattle, BELDAM is psyched to release Pasung to the masses and play as many shows as possible in its new Pacific Northwest home.

Track Listing:

  1. Vial Of Silence
  2. Sunken Sorceress
  3. Shed The Coil
  4. One From The Stable
  5. Carrion Feast
  6. That Which Consumes You

BELDAM - band logo banner - 2017 - #4343MO099ILMN

RIYL: Bongzilla, Brainoil, Coffins, Conan, Crowbar, Dopethrone, Grief, High On Fire, Indian, Meth Drinker, Neurosis, Noothgrush, Om, Orange Goblin, Order Of The Owl, Pelican, Primitive Man, Pungent Stench, Rwake, Soilent Green, Sourvein, Sunn O))), Thou, Ufomammut, Weedeater and Zoroaster.

GATEWAY TO HELL – Baltimore Doom Metal Unit To Release Debut EP Via Unholy Anarchy Records; New Track Streaming

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on July 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

“…a groovy, ghoulish mix of doom metal and the laughter of ugly children, with a touch of inebriation and shame…”

______________________________

Baltimore Doom Metal unit GATEWAY TO HELL – fittingly self-described as a, “groovy, ghoulish mix of doom metal and the laughter of ugly children, with a touch of inebriation and shame – will release their debut EP next month via Unholy Anarchy Records.

Slated to drop on July 21st, the five bottom-heavy ragers comprising Clovers were captured at Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten on their home turf and douses its listeners with heavy riffs, an exceptional vocal attack, and sheer, unrepentant catchiness. The Maryland four-piece conjure loud music about things that matter. Whether it’s a slow burning, existential lament or a fast-paced scorcher about regrettable, late-night, drunken food orgies, GATEWAY TO HELL draws influences from all over the musical spectrum including Deep Purple, Danzig and of course, Black Sabbath.

Clovers will come available digitally and on limited edition vinyl in three color variations (orange/pink merge, clear with blue splatter, and standard black). Preorders are currently available RIGHT HERE.

Check out the title track at the GATEWAY TO HELL Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION or below:

Clovers – Track Listing:

  1. Clovers
  2. Tin Roof
  3. The Drizzard
  4. Rain For Days
  5. Scorched Earth

GATEWAY TO HELL was forged in 2013 when drummer Dan Petruccelli and bassist Rudy Gomez started jamming in the basement of an otherwise reputable Baltimore cake shop. Taking cues from John Carpenter soundtracks, Type O Negative, and Ministry, they realized they were onto something fun and brought in Jerrod Bronson on vocals and Jo K. on guitar to complete the initial lineup. The band released a self-recorded demo in October of 2014 and shows with the likes of The Skull and Crypt Sermon ensued.

By 2015, Gomez moved to Austin, Texas but remains an integral part of the band as the painter responsible for much of the band’s artwork. Eric Smythe was brought in on bass and later Alex Briscoe joined as a second guitarist. Together, they played shows regionally opening for Valient Thorr, The Bronx, Mac Sabbath, and Mondo Generator. In the spring of 2016, they recorded the soon-to-be-unleashed Clovers EP featuring five songs of atmospheric and crushing Metal that fuses their many Metal and punk influences. Later that year, Jo K. fled the band to pursue new projects. The band remains a four-piece. GATEWAY TO HELL‘s catalog includes a self-titled demo, one single titled “Scorched Earth” and their upcoming 2017 debut EP Clovers. The band is currently writing new material for their next album.

Texas Doom Duo CANYON OF THE SKULL Releasing ‘The Desert Winter’ August 19th

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on June 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Austin (TX) –  CANYON OF THE SKULL has returned! The instrumental Doom duo of guitarist Erik Ogershok and Adrian Voorhies (Humut Tabal) will release sophomore album The Desert Winter on August 19. The CD version will be available in a gorgeous 6-panel format.

Consisting of the undeniably epic 37-minute title track of blackened doom, The Desert Winter is a journey deep into the psyche. Listeners are strongly advised to clear out all head space (and any earwax) and settle in for this existential Ride of the Doomed!

Recorded at WoodenHorse studios October 2016.

Mixed and Produced by Zawicizuz and Canyon of the Skull.

Mastered by Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens) at Nox Luna Inlustris Music.

Artwork Layout and design by Erik Bredthauer.

Adrian Voorhies – Drums, Percussion

Erik Ogershok – Guitars, Bass, Percussion

BAND BIO:

The brainchild of Erik Ogershok, COTS was initially manifested in the winter of 2006. Several local appearances and lineup fluctuations later, life happened, and the project lay dormant. 2014 saw the return of Ogershok as he recruited new musical personnel in the form of drummer Adrian Voorhies of the Austin-based Black Metal outfit HUMUT TABAL and once more brought the doom ensemble to life to melt the faces of all who sought shade in the Canyon walls.

After numerous regional gigs both opening for touring colleagues and spearheading an array of craft beer events and festival slots (including two SXSW appearances), the band closed the year with a blistering performance at the End of the World Fest in Houston alongside Austin brethren The Sword and Eagle Claw. 2015 saw the creation of the band’s first recording, a self-titled EP solidifying the now scaled down duo of Ogershok and Voorhies as a force to be reckoned with in the Texas doom scene.

With the EP capturing some attention, they embarked on a two-week tour of the Midwest, bringing their signature brand of instrumental doom from the Twin Cities to Louisville. Once home, the band commenced production on their most ambitious musical effort yet with rare selected live performances across the lone star state. In October, they headed back into Wooden Horse studios with an A-list production team of Zawicizuz (The Black Moriah) and Proscriptor McGovern (Absu) and their sophomore offering was forged. Now, as the band prepares to release The Desert Winter, only one message can truly be counted on: Abandon All Hope.

GREEN LUNG – Debut Single “Green Man Rising” – A Metal Odyssey Review

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on June 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Green Lung - promo band pic - 2017 - #33MO838ILMNOSD

GREEN LUNG – From the UK emerges a Doom Metal band of seasoned musicians named GREEN LUNG. These dudes have just released their debut single, Green Man Rising, on June 1st. This groovy, doomy, psychedelic (intertwined) with stoner goodness song is available on the bands’ bandcamp site, (see below). Clean vocals and a beefy executed song; even the B side song is worth the price for the doom voyage.

I dig the sound that GREEN LUNG have captured; this band has created respectable chunky riffage and relevant doom atmosphere that also grasps and holds onto some Sabbath-like vibes. Keep on plowing down the doom soaked freeway GREEN LUNG, considering I am eager to hear a whole lot more doom from you. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Side A: Green Man Rising

Side B: Freak On A Peak

GREEN LUNG Bio:

Formed in March 2017, GREEN LUNG play heavy psychedelia that is more attuned to wild woodlands than desert dunes. Made up of current and former members of stoner heavies Oak, occult doom trio Tomb King and instrumental sludge minimalists Deadbox Radio, the London-based four-piece have combined strengths to record an opening salvo that balances gargantuan heaviness with intricate melody.

GREEN LUNG:

Vocals – Tom Killingbeck
Guitar – Scott Masson
Bass – Andrew Cave
Drums – Matt Wiseman

KINGS DESTROY – Brooklyn Doom Rock Unit Drops “None More” EP Via War Crime Recordings; Band To Support Sweden’s Truckfighters On North American Tour

Brooklyn-based five-piece heavy doom rock unit KINGS DESTROY drops a brand new EP, None More, TODAY January 13th, on limited-edition cassette via War Crime Recordings and digitally through streaming services. The follow-up to 2015’s critically lauded self-titled full-length, None More is a fourteen-minute epic broken down into six parts. The track showcases KINGS DESTROY‘s myriad influences, combining elements of doom, sludge, psych, rock, and metal into one sprawling, dynamic composition. It’s spaced-out, fuzzed-out, maxed-out, rock ‘n’ roll doom.

Notes The Obelisk in an extended investigation of the record: “None More moves through its extended but brief stretch, flowing not like a disjointed assemblage of parts, but with a careful and patiently executed arc. It’s not the first time KINGS DESTROY have told a story in their work, but it’s the first time they’ve put so much into the telling.”

Sample None More in full alongside an in-depth examination of the offering at THIS LOCATION. Order None More via War Crime Recordings RIGHT HERE.

None More Track Listing:
I. Rise Of The Betrayer
II. The Blood Waters
III. The Battle
