CVLT Nation is happy to bring you Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CX, our second mixtape curated by Belgian heavyweights OATHBREAKER! These guys really know how to put together a mix, so hit play below and let the tunes wash over you!
At the end of 2011 we did our first Sonic Cathedrals and obviously a lot has changed since then. The band Oathbreaker has changed, we have changed. So when Sean asked us to do a second series, we were more than happy to oblige. These are the songs that made their mark since the first mixtape. It’s a pretty long ride, but we felt it was worth it. We hope you enjoy them.

CVLT Nation is happy to offer you a soundtrack for your week with Sonic Cathedrals Vol CIX Curated by Narrows going live today! This mixtape is a true group effort, with each member of the band choosing songs to create one whole epic fucking mix. Enjoy!
When this band got together I was very curious to see how it would come out. We all came from the same sort of background musically…kind of. Meaning we all have punk, hardcore and metal as the common thread but that wasn’t the only thing you’d find in our record collections. Somewhere close to that Acme record would also be an At the Gates record. Or Suede right next to Suicide. De La Soul next to Deadguy. You get the idea. But this is basically how Narrows sounds to me personally. We skip through genres from our collective back catalog to get to where we’re at now. Whether an idea is new or borrowed it certainly sounds nothing like its original concept when it’s eventually finished.
So when CVLT asked us to throw this guy together I was equally curious to see what the other boys would throw in. After spending endless hours in a shitty van I thought I had them pegged. A couple surprises but mostly I was on. But if you make it through most of this you’ll have a better understanding of who we are and where we coming from.

CVLT NATION MIXTAPE July 2013
I really enjoy doing these mixtapes; it gives me a chance to set aside some time and go through my record collection, pull out tracks that sort of capture the moment and rediscover some jams that I haven’t listen to in a while. The east coast summer has descended on us like a hammer; the days are hot, unbearable and the nights are languid and filled with restlessness, so the first few tracks are songs that I always find myself gravitating to during this season.

I was asked to make a death metal mixtape so I just put together a bunch of tracks I enjoy. Maybe you’ll like them too. Simple right?
These run the spectrum in sound and style within death metal I think, some old and some recent. Songs from bands that are well known like Ulcerate and Immolation, or others like Timeghoul and Led Astray never lived long enough to get their strong sounds out there. Then there’s old masters that many seem to have been forgotten like Iniquity, The Chasm, and Mithras, and the newcomers that have quite a few underground eyes on them such as Ignivomous, Ritual Necromancy, and Antediluvian.
You may be surprised that I did not include some classics like Bolt Thrower, Seance, Autopsy, Obituary, Dismember, etc. which is sure to draw some annoyance, and the same goes for leaving out groups like Defeated Sanity, Anata, Disgorge, Portal, Lykathea Aflame, etc. All of which I do enjoy I assure you but I couldn’t include everything.
Anyway I suggest you check out and buy the record that each of these are torn from in full. A full track list is right below. Enjoy.

Craft – Demonspeed..from Fuck the Universe
This has to be my fave black metal album of all time…so fucking rockin, so ripped…best riffs, best drumming…every fucking song on this record crushes…one of the best overall DIY metal records ever…so badass…fucking full speed ahead!!!
Entombed – Left Hand Path…from Left Hand Path
I’m 36, so this album was one of the first death metal albums I had ever heard and one of the first ones I ever owned…every current throwback death metal band tries to sound like this and I’m not complaining at all…again an example of killer riffs, rockin drums and ripped vocals…you guys seeing a trend here?…haha…For those just getting into death metal, there are far more important albums you need to check out since this is pretty much a Slayer/rock album…but no one was doing this kinda metal when it came out and no one has done it better since…these guys also really were one of say 3 or 4 Swedish bands (Carnage, Dismember, Unleashed, Grave etc) that moulded the death metal scene over there…fucking classic.
CVLT Nation is stoked to present Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CV Curated by Hexis going live today! This mix is sure to make your day, so stream and download below!
This mixtape is curated by Filip from Hexis and contains both newer and older stuff that I really enjoy. Most of it is bands that I have been listen to for a long time, both smaller and bigger names. No specific genres, just music that I love and which have a special place in my heart
