Time for some fuzzy riffs and psychedelic music. French stoner rockers Space Fisters reveal their latest video for the track 'Yellow Hills'.
Brooklyn-based instrumental doom quartet Clouds Taste Satanic are back with their sophomore album, the follow up for To Sleep Beyond The Earth (read our review here). The new album, named 'Your Doom Has Come' will be different from the previous album in speed, intensity and length. Shorter, heavier songs, focusing on massive riffs and fierce doom metal in stead of a lengthy post-rock and doom metal blend. We're quite curious about the new album which will be available in september but you can already pre-order it on their bandcamp page.
Dutch instrumental rockers Kong have released an album with live recordings from between 1989 and 1999. The album is available on their bandcamp page as a name-your-price digital download. If you don't know these guys, be sure to check them out, both on CD and live. It really is worth the effort. After all, they've been my favourite band for decades...
London bases sludge combo Limb revealed a new song from the upcoming album 'Terminal'.
"Terminal" follows hot on the heels of LIMB’s self-titled debut of 2014, but takes an enormous leap forward. Perhaps it’s the result of playing across the UK on tour with labelmates Black Moth, and the introduction of new drummer Tom Mowforth (ex-Uncle Acid), but LIMB are now more explosive than ever before. Where the debut showcased their thick, loping, and stripped-down sound, "Terminal" cranks up the sonics, mashes the grooves, and ups the filth quotient to truly corrosive levels.
Grab your corpse paint or skateboard, grow your beard and/or your hair and prepare for some wicked decibels at this year's Incubate festival. The organisation of this celebration in Tilburg (NL) have announced some blissful joy for skaters, headbangers, moshers and blackened souls.
