CVLT Nation is honored to be streaming EPHEMEROS’ “Stillborn Workhorse” below! Stay tuned for an in-depth review of All Hail Corrosion.
LOCRIAN has had a very busy year in 2013. They released their debut album on Relapse Records, Return To Annihilation, which was one of my favorites from their discography. While in Denton, TX, LOCRIAN recorded an epic live session for Violitionist, which consists of 3 tracks: “Eternal Return,” “Visitation from the Wrath of Heaven” and “The Crystal World.” You can download this session for free below and also check out the video footage! All hail LOCRIAN, congrats on a very productive year!

If you read CVLT Nation a lot then you know that we support skateboarding 666%! Even more, we dig when our creative readers film their own skate videos, which is the case with Cameron Starke – the first film we showed you of his was ACID BONG. Now he’s back with a brand new film called CELLULAR DYSFUNCTION that was made only using cell phone footage. What I like about his videos, besides the kick ass soundtracks, is that they are always about a group of homies doing what they love – skating!!! So now check out CELLULAR DYSFUNCTION…CVLT Nation wants to give a big shout out to Cameron Starke and his crew of skate-loving misfits!
Unholy horns of everything awesome! Have you ever heard a record that has all of your brain cells spazzing out like a motherfucker head banging themselves against your skull and stage diving out of your ears? This happens to me every time I put on the new DEAF KIDS from Brazil, who happen to be one 20-year-old dude named Douglas. These eight new aggro tunes are for their new limited edition tape “I am the Sickness” that is coming out on Boue Records (PRE ORDER HERE)! If you follow CVLT Nation, you know that the last DEAF KIDS record, their 6 Heretic Anthems For The Deaf EP, ended up on our last year’s Top Albums of the Year list, and I’m thinking this year they will repeat it! Damn, once I heard the the intro to “Christianity Standards,” I knew Douglas had done it again – this track knocks your teeth out once the drums kick in. DEAF KIDS are an ultra extreme mix of everything I dig, and I could blast this band all day long without getting bored. Imagine if Lemmy fathered Discharge, who went on to have a hellspawn named Darkthrone – this would come sort of close to the rawness of DEAF KIDS. Douglas is a genius in my book, because he knows how to lace all of his compositions with a blackened punk voodoo groove that creates electricity. Take “Man/Machine” for instance: it starts off with a dirty baseline before turning into serpent’s tongue riffs that make you want to be bitten with the drums’ rancid rage. Douglas’ vocals bleed with the oppressed people of his country coming through in every word. Something that’s very interesting is the way he uses melody, almost as another vocal. When you listen closely, you can hear these really awesome call and response things happening in the songs that only add to the drama of DEAF KIDS songs. It gets sicker – there is a spot-on cover of CRUCIFIX’s song “How, When and Where” that kicks ass! DEAF KIDS is one of those groups that inspires us to do what we do at CVLT Nation – I really hope you enjoy the stream below! I’m glad that I have my hearing, so I can hear how stellar the DEAF KIDS are…rock on Douglas!
Look at the noose that graces the cover of this album. It reaches out from shadows unknown, waiting for our unexpecting head to slide into it unaware so it can then tighten and yank us back into the tenebrae of horror it emerged from. This is what Bobby Krlic aka The Haxan Cloak has planned for anyone daring to dive into his music. Krlic is not only a musician, he is a true sound sculptor. An exponent of a small, rare and exclusive breed of musicians that have taken the act of creating sound to the next level, to a place of enormous imaginative force. Krlic is not one that only creates but that also molds, subdues and transforms. In the realm of atmospheric and experimental electronic music, his grip on concepts like form, structure and execution is flawless and relentless and he is only at the stage of album number two, which makes his incumbent presence on the forefront of dark ambient, noise and industrial electronic music downright fucking scary. But when this guy decides that the time and place is right to create worlds just from sound, his output and execution become then an unstoppable force of creation.
Fuck all of the LIES! Don’t pour any of your nonsense in my morning coffee, but you can blast the new TRANSIENT song “False Philanthropy” in my ears!

CVLT Nation is honoured to be streaming the radical song by TRANSIENT “False Philanthropy” below!
