CVLT Nation is stoked to present a mixtape for your mind – Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXV by Harrow! Harrow is playing alongside the almighty Wolvserpent, Haggatha and Druden this Saturday Oct. 26th at the Astoria in Vancouver…hope to catch you there!
For this mixtape we took the chance to showcase the many diverse styles that influence both our approach and musical content. The tracks are sequenced such a way as to weave together these seemingly dissimilar influences and change genres gradually instead of suddenly. Each track adds something essential to the next until the style of music has changed completely. We’re happy to call many of these artists friends and we hope you will enjoy all of the music offered as much as we have.

The Southwest Terror Fest is almost upon us, and today we’re getting you ready for it with a killer mixtape from Los Angeles’ infamous ACxDC. Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXIV ACxDC was curated by Sergio Amalfitano and it’s an A to Z of what you need to listen to!
I’ve been going to shows since about 98-99. Ever since I started going I’ve been collecting vinyl and taking in as many shows as I could within my means. It’s a little bit difficult coming up with a mixtape when I just want to share my entire music library from the last 15 years of gathering music. Hell half the music I have isn’t on a computer. So I narrowed it down to some stuff I think either are basics everyone into extreme music should know or are overlooked gems that might not see too much exposure. Its an eclectic mix of grind, sludge, hardcore, thrash, d-beat, powerviolence, etc. Some of it’s old, some of it’s new. Either way this gives you a pretty decent incite into what I’m into. Its what happens when you grow in a scene like LA.
We’re very excited and honored to be part of the Cvlt Nation Mixtape Series!! We all love slow and heavy music and while there have been a lot of great bands cultivating lots of great mixes of styles, we feel that grind and crust are underrepresented. So we would like to present to you our mixtape of Things That Grind and rock the D-Beat!! Enjoy!
See you all on the road this October!!

We are working with some of our favorite bands to cover seminal albums in full, and although we can’t give you too many details right now, we can reveal one of the albums we are covering – Discharge’s Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing! Sydney, Australia’s DARK HORSE just submitted their original recording of “The Nightmare Continues,” and they created a rad music video to go with it! This is a sneak peek of Discharge: The CVLT Nation Sessions and a great representation of how each band is paying special tribute to the band and song with original recordings. Check it out below, and stay tuned for more news soon…
Today CVLT Nation is excited to offer you a rad mixtape in the form of Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXI Red Apollo. This mixtape is full of gems both new and old and will definitely see heavy rotation in the CVLT Nation HQ! Stream and download below!
I haven’t ever been good at mixing tapes, especially when they are supposed to outline a certain topic, and I most probably have no sense for combining different artists in an impressive way. Therefore, people may consider this mixtape atmospherically rubbish. I’m fine with such an assumption, since my actual intention is to give a rough compendium of what has formed and influenced RED APOLLO. These 17 bands and musicians have either been a part of our musical development for more than a decade, formed our sound relevantly or have just been nice and charming when we shared a stage together. Enjoy!

Here is my mix tape. It’s always difficult to make one of these. I used to make real mix tapes for people but I think if you handed someone a tape today they would ask “what the fuck is this?”
I tried to stay away from really mainstream stuff to make it interesting and maybe turn some of you onto some new stuff, but let a few mainstream gems fall through the cracks. It’s a healthy mix of Black Metal, Rock and Punk. It’s representative of what I listen to and hopefully it puts you in a really shitty and grim mood. Enjoy!

Assuming that everyone’s already heard Naplam Death and Extreme Noise Terror I thought it best to merely provide a collection of sounds off the hard-drive of this computer that I like, and that I think other people will also like. There is no real context for any of the following other than that premise.
CVLT Nation presents a killer fucking mix leading up to our show in Bristol this weekend with You’re Not Human – Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXVIII HUMAN CULL! If you need a pick me up that will take you through everything you need to hear, then hit play below and download this mother!
