“The Minutes Felt Like Hours” was recorded in one take 11/9/2013 Produced by J. Randall for the ANbRx Pharmaceuticals group llc. Because of its length (over 11.5 hours) the file size for this recording was just too large to master and as result is relatively quiet, please adjust the volume on your system audio player as needed. This recording was inspired by the shifting visual geometry and time. distortion one can experience from smoking N,N-Dimethyltryptamine.

There is a common and ancient opinion that certain prophetic women who are popularly called ‘screech-owls’ suck the blood of infants as a means, insofar as they can, of growing young again. Why shouldn’t our old people, namely those who have no [other] recourse, likewise suck the blood of a youth? — a youth, I say who is willing, healthy, happy and temperate, whose blood is of the best but perhaps too abundant. They will suck, therefore, like leeches, an ounce or two from a scarcely- opened vein of the left arm; they will immediately take an equal amount of sugar and wine; they will do this when hungry and thirsty and when the moon is waxing. If they have difficulty digesting raw blood, let it first be cooked together with sugar; or let it be mixed with sugar and moderately distilled over hot water and then drunk. 
At first glance, cannibalistic medical practices such as this seem far removed from our own culture. However, the utilisation of body parts for medicinal purposes still persists today, albeit in different forms. Although blood transfusions or organ transplantation may seem dramatically different than drinking the blood or eating the flesh of another human being, these medical practices do share a common belief in the body as an instrument of healing.
Musicians sampling horror films isn’t uncommon, with most metal artists identifying the horror genre as playing a significant role in their lyrics or general style. The bonds between horror and metal are ancient; prompting one to wonder why it wasn’t until recently that an event merging these close cousins of expression was implemented. Phil Anselmo, perhaps best known as front man for ‘Pantera’ or ‘DOWN’, collaborated with Corey Mitchell to create the first annual Housecore Horror Film Festival, a 4-day celebration of the horror/metal community. Classic Austin venues Emo’s and Antone’s hosted the bulk of the event, but the first day occurred at Dirty Dog Bar, not far downtown. As the festival kicked off, unsure guests dressed in black could be seen wandering around, looking bored more than anything else, yet by the festival’s final day, a sea of black leather, obscure horror and band shirts, vests and studs surrounded every venue, leaving no doubt in one’s mind that this was one of the most important events of the year for both horror and metal fans alike.
Hailing from the Sierras, Valdur creates black metal that evokes the chill of a mountaintop, where only your cabin walls protect you from the harsh world outside. Their new album, At War With, follow up to 2010′s Raven Gods Among Us, makes that icy wind a reality, whipping its frosty fingers down your spine as they caress the void inside you with hammering beats and cascading riffs. At War With will be released on Dec. 17th via BloodyMountain Records. Today CVLT Nation is stoked to bring you an exclusive stream of their song “Death Winds Will Cleanse” below!

A woman had been sleeping next to her dead husband’s decomposed corpse for one year until authorities made the grisly discovery this week.
Apparently, 79-year-old “Marcel H.” from Liege, Belgium, died back in November 2012 of an asthma attack, according to Carters News Agency. His wife was so upset that she failed to report the death and continued to sleep with the body until Belgian authorities made the bizarre finding on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
They were led to the apartment because the landlord claimed the couple hadn’t paid their rent since last year. Neighbors never reported a bad smell. The body had mummified.

Caïna is one of the most revered acts on the UKBM scene and since the first days of the project sole member Andrew Curtis-Brignell has pushed the sounds of his band further and further from the initial steps taken on 2006s demo, The King Beneath. Since that time, Caïna has evolved and taken on new identities – from “post” black metal to experimental improvisation which has seen the band constantly shift and flow with the mind of its creator.
In 2011 Curtis-Brignell announced a new record and that it would, unfortunately, be the end of Caïna. The musical journey for the band came to an end with the incredible Hands That Pluck. Yet, in the latter stages of 2012 Caïna was resurrected and a return to the live arena was established in September of this year. The live experience of Caïna was markedly different and having been away from the stage for over four years, Curtis-Brignell began to experiment with sound and on stage improvisation (live footage can be seen below).
