Toby Driver (Kayo Dot) announces solo album
After exploring a retro-futurist noir sound on Kayo Dot's 2014 album Coffins on Io then delving even further into electronic music with Plastic House on Base of Sky, Driver was eager to write a different kind of song. Madonnawhore represents a foray into traditional songwriting, stripped of the progressive flourishes and unpredictability of Kayo Dot. These six austere tracks are sparse and atmospheric, evoking empty spaces and the beauty sometimes inherent in death. They occupy a heretofore unexplored place in Driver's oeuvre, and were recorded primarily as a solo effort but share some lyrical contributions from Jason Byron, who also writes for Kayo Dot.
Although not a concept album, Madonnawhore is united by its exploration of the "madonna-whore complex," a psychological neurosis first identified by Sigmund Freud whereby a man feels he can only love a woman who maintains a saint-like purity, but desires to be intimate with someone he considers to be debased. This sacred/profane dichotomy has far reaching effects that are seemingly inescapable in modern society and ripe for examination.
In addition to the release of Madonnawhore, on April 21st The Flenser will reissue Kayo Dot’s beloved Hubardo album on double CD / triple LP formats. Originally released in 2013, Hubardo is a 100-minute magnum opus that has been a longtime out-of-print fan favorite. Look for more details and pre-orders to be announced soon.

Valfreya stream entire album
“The album is a journey through a lot of emotions and situations, giving life to a host of varied songs, each with a different sound and personality. The story behind the album is about Eric The Red discovering America and how he defies the Gods, but pays a hefty price for that defiance. ” says Valfreya about the release. “It’s a step-up in sound quality and has more intricate guitar parts and better-written music that with every listen you can discover parts you hadn’t noticed before. On top of that we have an original sound and songs! We want to give more to people that enjoy good riffs!”
Available on iTunes, CD Baby, Bandcamp and all online major retailers
Blood of Angels reveal track from debut EP
Like any band that is on the same page musically, Aaron Robinson (guitar), Michael Stewart (bass), Chris Iibucha (vocals) and Kevin Phillips (drums) have rolled together their collective experience from previous acts into a cold, clinical, yet passionate sound that will be unveiled on their debut EP "Rise of the Fallen Gods." With hints of Dark Tranquility and Amon Amarth among other bands making up the palette of their sound, and a slick production to accentuate the pummeling drive of the music, the band is preparing to release on the 21st of April.
The lead single “Odin’s Wrath” is available on Bandcamp and YouTube, and will soon be accompanied by a music video as well. Following the release of the EP are plans to tour their home base of Florida, as well as expanding their horizons – as the band sees the live front as the best avenue to unleash their intensity.
Sun of Gaia reveal new video
The band comments:
"The new single 'Peril' differs from our previous EP 'Corrode' in the sense that it embraces more progressive elements through the use of clean, ambient sections, clean vocals and places a much greater emphasis on the role of keyboards and piano elements in our music. It still retains some of the heaviness and melodic death metal style of 'Corrode,' but overall it offers a more refined, mature and musically confident insight into who we are as a band today. We intended for the new single to act as a kind of 'bridge' between our sound on the 'Corrode' EP and how our next release will sound. It retains the heavier, metal elements that fans of 'Corrode' will recognise and enjoy, but listeners can expect to hear many more progressive elements on future releases that we think are previewed quite nicely in 'Peril.'"
Sun of Gaia are already working on new material; they plan to record and release their full-length debut later this year.
They say, “We’re about two thirds of the way through writing a full-length album, so our goal for the near future will be to complete the writing process and start to demo the new songs with the aim of heading into the studio to record them later on this year. In addition to this, we'll be supporting Melbourne death metal band Hadal Maw for their album launch in Adelaide in late February and expect to play a number of shows locally and interstate before the year comes to an end.”

Oparu releases video
Oparu’s debut single ‘Remember Me’ is a fusion of haunting pop, paired with operatic vocals and dark experimental electro. The theme of her music is raw emotion, "everything leads back to this in life. It is our human nature. People can’t handle coming face to face with their emotions and insecurities and therefor have a polarizing experience with my music.” she reveals.
