Right now I’m listening to a song call “South Of The River” from HORDERS, a one-man project by Texas’ Give Up, and everything about this tune makes me look into the eyes of my own flaws. The composition was taken from the most recent album, entitled Fimbulvetr, out now via Feast of Tentacles. This record is not about one specific song, it’s about a sonic collage of gentle, and sometimes harsh noise that will move your mental state to a new audio sensation. What will get you addicted to this album is the language of the guitar playing, which is really heavy in it’s quiet way. I dig the way that HORDERS uses loops and samples to get the point across. What is never lost is melody, even if it’s hidden under a giant wall of distortion. Fimbulvetr is full of sad music that is perfect for happy daze. CVLT Nation is extra stoked that HORDERS and Feast of Tentacles have given us the opportunity to stream the full record for our readers to get into. If you buy the vinyl version of this record, you are actually getting art…peep some flicks after the jump!
Thrash kid thrash!!! This is what you feel like doing when you hear OBSESSOR and their new single “Mental Hell,” out now on Tankcrimes. This release is the 4th and final part of the “cassingle” program that the label has been doing, where each is produced in a limited run of 250 and won’t be reproduced, but all 4 are available for free download on the TC website. Obsessor is a one man project of Brandon Ferrel, who is best known for his hardcore bands Direct Control and Government Warning, plus his early years w/ Municipal Waste, playing drums on the first album Waste em All. “Mental Hell” will truly take you to a dark place in your psyche, where you will thrash your way out of your straightjacket! CVLT Nation is stoked to be streaming this gnarly tune below!
What skies will you see in slowed-down riffs and what mountains will be created by the sounds? These questions can be answered by the majestic doom merchants NORSKA, who have a killer new self-titled album coming out via Brutal Panda on Sept. 18th. Today CVLT nation has the chance to share their song “Two Coins for the Ferryman” with you, which we are streaming below! I have this tune on repeat because the intro alone is classic audio beauty…pre-order here!!!
YOB, NORSKA – 2012 TOUR DATES after the jump!
Today is the day that the sun will stop shining for some, because NIHILL have released their new album Verdonkermaan via Hydra Head. These blackened warriors from Holland have totally outdone themselves with this record. The five songs that you will experience on Verdonkermaan will freeze your blood and burn your skin. This is why CVLT Nation is fucking honored to be streaming this NIHILL sonic portrait of darkness in full below! Plus check out part of our review and the rest HERE!
This destructive force weaves its serpentine path throughout Verdonkermaan; “Spiral: the tail eater” speaks of the Ouroboros and the constant cycle of death and rebirth found within a higher plane of existence. The devastating nature of the lyrical style gives Verdonkermaan an esoteric narrative, the words containing depth and knowledge of worlds long-forgotten by mere mortals. These occultic nuances feed into the dangerous atmosphere created by this three piece and there’s a deep-seated belief that courses through the disgusting veins of Nihill’s output.
Un-fucking-believable – that’s how good the new DEPHOSPHORUS album, entitled Night Sky Transform, is, and it’s out today via 7 Degrees Records. To even try to pin this band’s sound down would be an injustice, because they are in a universe that is truly their own. When you hear this record you will realize that DEPHOSPHORUS are on a mission to create the album that makes them proud of their own accomplishments, and I can say job well fucking done. This collection of songs is full of surprises that it will leave your head spinning. DEPHOSPHORUS has a cosmic vibe to their songwriting that imbues everything they do with an otherworldly feeling. CVLT Nation has the honor of streaming this release in full below, so you can listen to it song by song and realize why Night Sky Transform is a must-have for your collection. The package for this record is off the hook (check it out after the jump) and the artwork was handled by our comrades in art, Viral Graphics. CVLT Nation salutes DEPHOSPHORUS and everything they stand for – thank you so much for allowing us to share your vision with the nation!

GOD HARVEST is a band that can’t be fucked with, and that is real fucking talk. From almost day one of CVLT Nation, we had their 2011 demo on constant rotation. They play their own brand of chaotic harsh filthy hardcore. GOD HARVEST’s songs also have this rancid layer of empathy to them that just makes what they create even more intriguing. They teamed up with Cogs And Sprockets for a blistering 7″ that kills from beginning to end! CVLT Nation is excited to announce that we are stream the whole record in full below plus you can download HERE…better yet you can buy a copy HERE…the “cum” colored vinyl is sick!

When I drive through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, or walk through the streets of South London, I see the ill effects of our capitalistic society. Everyone deals with this fucked up reality in different ways, and as musicians, people often use the torment of the oppressed as fuel for their creations. OILTANKER are a perfect example of this – these d-beat warriors record protest anthems that inspire you to make a change. The band have combined both of their vinyl releases, the Shadow of Greed LP and their Crusades 7″ into their 1st CD release for Southern Lord, available today! CVLT Nation are beyond stoked that we are streaming the new OILTANKER CD in full below…16 tracks of pure rawness that will make you want to destroy the icons of greed!
