I think it’s safe to say that the music composed (and performed alone) by Jimmy Page and intended for Kenneth Anger’s Lucifer Rising, but not used, was/is among the very most sought after Led Zeppelin, or in this case Zep-related, bootleg recordings.
The story has long been a foundation of the Led Zeppelin mythos: Page and the mercurial Magus of Cinema had a falling out, then Anger did his patented “curse” routine very publicly going so far as accusing Page of being a mere “dabbler” in the occult and a rich, lazy junkie. Rock journalists began to wonder if Anger’s curse had worked when a succession of tragic events saw Robert Plant badly injured in a 1975 car accident, Plant’s five-year-old son Karac dying suddenly in 1977 and the death of John Bonham in 1980 that instantly ended Led Zeppelin’s reign as the world’s biggest rock group.
There are always two sides to every story and Page maintains that he had given the project financial support, put Ken up in one of his homes (Aleister Crowley’s Boleskine House in Scotland, no less) and lent him film editing equipment. Moreover, he’d given Anger 23 minutes of amazing music. Anger needed an additional five minutes from Page to complete Lucifer Rising, but it was slow arriving and after a shouting match with Page’s wife, he threw a major hissy, “firing” Page and viciously denouncing him—for years—in the media:
“He’s a multi-millionaire miser. He and Charlotte, that horrible vampire girl – the druggie that got him on heroin – they’re both junkies. They had so many servants, yet they would never offer me a cup of tea or a sandwich. Which is such a mistake on their part because I put the curse of king Midas on them. If you’re greedy and just amass gold you’ll get an illness. So I did turn her and Jimmy Page into statues of gold because they’ve both lost their minds. He can’t write songs anymore.”
Deep, deep in the filthy caves of death and doom exists a band called COFFINS! Their debut album on Relapse Records is entitled The Fleshland and is forty five minutes of cryptic low-end dirge that will have you head banging! This audio beast will be unleashed on to the world on July 9th. In the meantime, CVLT Nation is streaming the just released COFFINS lyric video for “The Vacant Pale Vessel” – also check out their kick ass Sonic Cathedral Mixtape for CVLT Nation HERE!
I’m keepin’ it sweet, short, and to the point this time, folks: all lovers of that old school anarcho-punk and post-punk are missing out big time if they have made it this far into 2013 without having heard SECT‘s self-titled debut LP. As some of you may know, SECT was formed by members of Drömdead and Belgrado in 2011. They released this gem late last year. I have since fallen in love with these Barcelona punx and want to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to hear how hard SECT rules. It’s like Bikini Kill, Crass and Joy Division got down on some raunchy punk coitus and made a sweet sweet love baby of 10 wicked jams.

My flesh is being sliced into cubes of of pain & torment, or maybe these are the effects that the new KATECHON has on my being. These Norwagian death dealers are on the verge of releasing an unreal album entitled Man, God, Giant via Nuclear War Now Productions on June 6th. I was impressed with KATECHON when I heard their demo last year, and and after hearing Man, God, Giant I’m an even bigger fan! This band is able to manifest huge black holes of sonic filth that suck you in and will not let you go. CVLT Nation is ultra stoked to be streaming three songs from Man, God, Giant below…So tune into KATECHON’s compositions of death: “Black Rain,” “Ungodly Rituals” and “Man God Giant”!
When Orchid released their first full-length, Capricorn, in 2011, we literally had it on repeat for months in the CVLT Nation HQ. It’s hard to follow such a strong record, let alone top it in terms of epic storytelling and mammoth riffs, but in The Mouths of Madness, Orchid has done it! Mastered by Richard Whittaker (Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy) for Nuclear Blast Records, The Mouths of Madness will be officially released in North America tomorrow, May 14th. Today, CVLT Nation is more than honored to stream this outstanding album in full for you below! Stay tuned for a full review, for now take shelter from the ever-watching eye in the sky and immerse yourself in Orchid’s The Mouths of Madness…
What sound are you going to find in a garage in San Francisco, next to the power tools and your post punk vinyl collection?

These humans said fuck the dumb shit, we are going to create music that we dig and let our audio weirdness fall where it may.
