We are stoked to have Lowrider back for our 6th edition of the Desertfest. The band hasn't play any shows since 2014 and so it´s greater to welcome them back at our festival in Berlin. Even if it’s not about cars, this combo is as powerful as a Chevy 356 engine and will surely tear down the walls of Astra.

Trippy sounds from Glasgow will emerge when these four guys hit the stage. With a menu raging from psych to powerful cosmic rock, so let's just pretend we are the space cadets.
ECSTATIC VISION (US)
Bring back the 70’s would be a tempting phrase to use on Ecstatic Vision if you remember bands like Amon Düül II and Hawkwind. Forget all chemical substances, this music is a trip itself.
Stay tuned, by mid-November we’ll be back with a new announcement where some headliners will be unfolded. Last year’s 3-day festival tickets were sold out already early February, so don’t wait too long if you want to come along and experience some of the best acts in the genres of doom, sludge, psych, desert and stoner rock.

About the new album, Misantronics comments: "After Contraformance, I wanted to do something completely different, so I started creating electronic percussion sequences and using those as a foundation for downtempo electronic ambient music. In the past, I've already recorded some tracks in this style, but never a whole album. I don't know if 'Inner Gazer' is the new Misantronics sound, but it sure was interesting to experiment with these sounds."
'InnerGazer' will be released by Sombre Soniks in November.
American post-rock legends Caspian have just released two new songs. “Castles High, Marble Bright” has been released with a short film that documents Caspian’s recent European tour. There is also a limited edition 8" vinyl pressing of the single (1k pressed) pre-order one now and get an instant download, single will be shipping first week of November. You can order the 8" single here.
About the new songs, Philip Jamieson comments:
"Castles High, Marble Bright" was conceived, written and recorded alongside the collection of songs that would become Dust and Disquiet, an album that sought to capture the dialogue between a newly found, furrow browed cynicism and a fractured but unbroken sense of stubbornly epic, dramatically determined optimism that we've been trying to emulate with our music for 12 years. The 60 minutes of Dust and Disquiet ended up speaking a bit to both; Castles..." speaks exclusively and entirely to the latter. We find ourselves over a year later touring behind this collection of songs still, with over 150 shows in 30 countries across 3 continents in the can. With the end finally in sight as we look to close out this 4 year chapter together, "Castles High, Marble Bright" is our North Star, our way home, and our celebration of that decision to fully embrace the above dialogue head on, all the while finding that, indeed still, hope lies within.
"127 North" is the sound of 6 guys playing in a room together on a Friday afternoon, and is in some ways the least ambitious thing we've ever committed to tape. Free from the grip of over arrangement, overdubs, click tracks, excessive chin stroking and the like, "127 North" is what a Caspian song sometimes sounds like in its infancy. It's a vulnerable moment for us to introduce people to a song that exists in this kind of limbo, somewhere between improvisation and a fully composed piece of music. It's an honest moment and all a part of the process, of course. Maybe it's time to invite people behind the curtain a little... there's some old couches, a few beers and maybe a few high fives back here waiting for you. Some days are less serious than others, and that's quite alright with us.
'Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground', a book by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind about the early Norwegian black metal scene, will apparently be turned into a movie. The film, will be directed by Jonas Åkerlund,who actually drummed for Bathory between 1983 and 1984 (and directed videos for Beyonce, Rolling Stones and Madonna).
The film will star Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer and Sky Ferreira, Rory Culkin (Signs and Scream 4) and will be a cooperation between Vice Films, Insurgent Media, Chimney Pot and 20th Century Fox. Of course, it will be based on true events and include church burnings, murders and absolute chaos, as it will follow the life or Euronymous, member of Mayhem and murder victim of Varg Vikernes (Burzum)
Aftera first video and US tourdates some time ago, Belgian hardcore horde Oathbreaker have revealed another video, one for the harsh and intense song 'Immortals'. The song from their newest album 'Rheia', which was released last month viaDeathwish Inc
vocalist Caro Tanghe explains: "The song is about emotional betrayal and how that numbed me for a long time. Being apathetic to any form of social and emotional engagement. In the video we wanted to push the viewer in a voyeuristic position. Looking at scenes you're not allowed to see. It's a weird, awkward sexual setting and the lead person is not part of it. It's about being numb to your surroundings, apathy in an extreme situation as this."
Belgian jazz/rock combo TaxiWars, featuring dEUS frontman Tom Barman and giften saxophonist Robin Verheyen, have released a video for the track 'Bridges'. The song is an uplifting piece of jazz rock, reminding me a bit of acts like Red Snapper or Herbie Hancock meets Nick Cave meets Herbaliser, or something like that. Anyway, the song comes from the new album 'Fever', which is planned to be released on November 18th via Universal Jazz
Universal via Concord are pleased to announce Evanescence’s first ever career spanning vinyl box set encompassing their studio albums, Fallen, The Open Door and Evanescence and for the first time ever, the commercial debut for the previously unreleased demo album Origin.

Well, we might come over as being quite patriotic today but here's another brilliant act from Belgium. Dark ambient and industrial project Ah Cama-Sotz has released a number of sound snippets from his new album 'Murder Themes III'. The album is available on Hands.
After the sensual downbeat fantasy “State of Mind”, Ah Cama-Sotz releases a full dark ambient album that’s widely devoid of rhythm: A meticulously crafted hour of music that may well serve as an exorcism. Electronic sounds and synthetic strings paint a sonorous background, cryptic samples and angelic choirs conjure up the enigmatic. For the dark-minded, this promises highly cinematic entertainment, purification in eleven movements.
Belgian dark metal combo Emptiness have revealed a track from their upcoming album 'Not For Music'. The song, titled 'Meat Heart' shows an interesting new sound from a band that never seems to stop evolving. You can pre-order the album on Season Of Mist.
Are you a metalhead and a gamer? Well, then this gem should be something right up your alley. What began as a graduation assignment in September 2013, has become an ambitious, full-fledged and multidisciplinary cross-over, combining both gaming, music and theatre. Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame is the world’s first rock opera videogame, scheduled to be released on 25 November through Graviton.
Karmaflow is the result of years of hard work by composer Ivo van Dijk (Xystus, Equilibrio) and his team. Completely self-financed, self-produced and self-released, van Dijk and his team created a beast of a musical album alongside a full-fledged videogame. The Karmaflow team has finally found the time to start collaborating with Graviton Music Services and make the physical version of the album available to the audience.
The album features an all-star cast consisting of members from Cradle of Filth, Epica, Sonata Arctica, Arch Enemy, Delain, Dragonforce, Amaranthe and many more, but also the Grammy Award winning Metropole Orchestra adding a symphonic layer on top of heavy guitars and other electronic and ethnic instruments.

It's one of a kind and it's insane.
