Following the success of last years globally acclaimed third album, The Eldritch Dark, BLOOD CEREMONY are back with a brand new single. Released and recorded to coincide their forthcoming headline European tour in May, “Let it Come Down” further displays the uniqueness of this Toronto based band. Conviction and dedication to what they do is so evident here, whilst their songwriting is sounding more confident than ever. Backed with a cover version of Loving You, originally recorded by early 70s obscure Scottish proto-metal legends, Iron Claw, BLOOD CEREMONY are rapidly becoming legends themselves. Continue reading
Portland doom kings, GRAVES AT SEA, today drop a molten taste of “This Place Is Poison,” via Cvlt Nation.
The sordid hell hymn serves as side A of the EP of same name. Their first release since 2005’s scalding split with Asunder, This Place Is Poison was tracked by drummer Bryan Sours (ex-Subarachnoid Space) and Steve Lobdell at Audible Alchemy and mastered by Ryan Foster at Foster Mastering on their home turf.

Almost by definition, musical side projects aren’t meant to last very long, but rather serve as brief, often one-time departures for musicians otherwise engaged with far more pressing or successful bands — and that’s why GREENLEAF has proved itself to be anything but your typical “side project.” Continue reading

REVOLVER Premieres Blazing New Track From Respected Cult Rockers New Album “Spiritus Mundi”
Celebrated French underground psych rock trio AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR has announced a U.S. tour in support of its new album Spiritus Mundi, which has been hailed as a “blend of psychedelic rock, space rock, garage rock, and even a little Donovan-derived folk” by Decibel. The first-ever U.S. live shows of the band’s career will kick off tonight in NYC. The tour will also include A-level performances as part of both the Austin Psych Fest (May 2) and Scion Rock Fest (May 17).
Revolver magazine recently premiered the white hot new AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR track “Turn on Your Mind.” Rock ANO‘s “Turn on Your Mind” now at THIS location!
AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR — formed in 2000 by David Sphaèr’os — creates utterly unique and fantastically tripped out occult psych rock inspired by parallel dimensions, voodoo, ethnic trance, horror and cult movies (from the 1920’s to the 60’s), painters like Hieronymus Bosch and Salvador Dali, dark underground literature (H. P. Lovecraft, Isidore Ducasse, Antonin Artaud), aliens and UFOs! A modern mix of Krautrock / motorik with Hawkwind-style psychedelia, Hendrix-styled, ultra tripped out guitar action and an apocalyptic, Raw Power energy, AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR‘s mind-burning, dark and dirty “chaos-sound” is a cauldron full of seething, psychedelic rock. ANO looks and sounds like it was buried in a tomb in the late 60’s / 70’s and has just been dug up, ready to resume its wild sound-making once again.
