Heavy Demented Disjointed Aggressive Disturbing are some of the words that come to mind when listening to INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE. This 90′s group laid waste to many different genres of sound to create their own upper cuts of sonic filth. DIY label Foreign Sounds has just re-released their album The Newest Youth Rebellion on vinyl only. Today CVLT Nation is streaming INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE’s bombastic record in full below!
Our comrades Aborted Society Records are about to release a fucking way beyond raging album by INSIDIOUS PROCESS. Over ten songs and 30 minutes, this band will hold you captive with their onslaught of fully charged D-Beat. All of their songs have a great sense of urgency infused with an almost bluesy fury. INSIDIOUS PROCESS’s self-titled album is full of emotion that makes you realize our fight against the status quo is not over and has only begun. Every song is an anthem against those that would like to do away with progressive thought. I know that music can be used as a weapon against corruption, and INSIDIOUS PROCESS’ music is a wake up call for us all! CVLT Nation has the honor of streaming this powerful album in full below…Nuff respect to Aborted Society Records & INSIDIOUS PROCESS…Pre-Order HERE!!!

Last night, Public Confession killed it our our showcase with Crash the Clubs in Santa Monica, alongside The Body, White Dove, HARASSOR and Uranium Orchard.

Hit play and let Morbid Thoughts beat the inside of your skull below!
Track List below.
HOUSE OF APPARITION is a band I will never get tired of, because their brand of raw black metal infused with decaying punk gets me hyped. Their soon to be released 7 inch on Crippled Sound has this dirgy, cryptic, morbid boogie thing happening that makes blood pour out of my ears. Everything about this record is fucking perfect, from the primitive lo-fi production to the screeching, tormented vocals. What trips me out about this HOUSE OF APPARITION record is the doom parts that creep into the mix. CVLT Nation is so freaking stoked to be streaming the new HOUSE OF APPARITION 7 inch in full below…Now get you murder music vibe ON!
Walter Potter was a self-taught Victorian taxidermist in Sussex who became famous for his anthropomorphized taxidermy scenes featuring all types of animals, but mainly kittens, squirrels and mice – probably plentiful in those parts. He is famous for scenes like “The Kittens’ Wedding,” his commentary on social inequity “The Squirrels’ Club” and “The Rats’ Den” and “The Death and Burial of Cock Robin.” My daughter freaked when she saw this, but I also got a kick out of their tiny costumes and perfect gestures. The museum Potter created in his home was broken up and sold for over £500,000, while a bid of £1,000,000 was offered by Damien Hirst for the entire collection but was rejected by auctioneers. Check out some of Potter’s scenes below.
CVLT Nation has been down with LA’s doom lord Ear/Splitters for a while now, and we are very excited about his latest incarnation, Midnite Collective. To celebrate the beginning of this new venture into the darkness of the human heart and mind, CVLT Nation and Midnite Collective present Midnite Communion. Summoning the dark arts and craft of the underworld, on Saturday, November 23rd Midnite Collective brings Jas Helena, Bryan Proteau, Davide Manicni and Stevie Floyd together to create a visual altar that will be led in ceremony by Amarok (Chico) and Funerary (Phoenix). Doom and darkness set the somber undertone of the evening, gathering the masses of the underground community to observe their creative counterparts in an intimate setting known as MonkSpace in Los Angeles (4414 W. 2nd St.). The event is free and all ages, beginning at dusk (7pm) with music beginning shortly after, ending at 10pm. Check out more event info here and below…

Mix tapes have always been the most engaging, most personal, and the most dependable gateway to new music for me. Even in 2013 when pretty much any song or band I could ever want to hear is readily available on Youtube or blogs, I still consistently discover my new favorite music through exchanging tapes with friends. It may seem archaic and maybe even pointless to a lot of people, but there is something about the craft and the ritual surrounding it that makes the mix tape such a unique way of experiencing music. Just the fact that there is any sort of actual effort involved in creating a mix tape illustrates a sincere appreciation and value for the music contained therein. A rarity, for sure, especially in a time where music has become so disposable and mindlessly consumed.
When Sean approached us about curating a tape for CVLT Nation, I was very excited to have the opportunity to contribute something like this to such an esteemed website. I did my best to compile songs that I feel fit the vibe of Morne but also to highlight some of my personal influences over the past few years. This is not a showcase of ultra-obscure rarities, it’s simply a mix of my current music obsessions, heavy hitter classics as well as some tracks by friends whose work I admire. Though it may lack the tangible/personal touch of an actual cassette, I hope you enjoy the listening experience.

The Victorian Blood Book was a part of Evelyn Waugh‘s personal collection of Victorian texts and manuscripts, and arguably the most curious – a scrapbook put together by a loving father for his daughter’s wedding day, this book is an amalgamation of engravings by William Blake, Christian and nature imagery, blood red ink and written text filling all the gaps in between. The text on the pages, hand written by its creator John Bingley Garland in 1854, has the tone of religious ranting, rife with Bible quotes, with phrases such as “Truth! springs out of the earth! and Righteousness! shall look down! from Heaven!” A lot of exclamation points, so many that when I read the text, I read it in the voices of the crazy bums I’ve met on the street trying to convert anyone and everyone to their visions of plague and fire. All I can say is, if my dad gave me something like this, I would question his sanity. But hey, this was the Victorian era, so this type of zealotry was as mainstream and normal as it is today in a Texas megachurch. The creepy element is in the blood dripping from everyone and everything on its pages. Hand drawn in red India ink are bleeding crosses, blood dripping from people, animals, plants and fruit. Literally everything is soaked in the blood of Christ. That’s it, I’m converted! You can look at scans of the full book here, plus take a look at some of my favorites below.
