If you are a reader of CVLT Nation, then you know that we are HUGE fans of DEAF KIDS from Brazil. Actually, the mastermind behind this group is a young man named Douglas Leal, and he does everything himself. Their new album The Upper Hand is a sign that this band is growing and expanding their aggro d-beat sound to include his dirty doom-laden visions of the world! I’m not going to give it all away, but I will say that DEAF KIDS have again created one of my favorite releases of the year. Today CVLT Nation is exclusively streaming their new tune “You’re Mine” plus two songs from the DEAF KIDS bandcamp, “Drugged With Happiness” & “Void.” From these three songs, you are able to hear how Douglas’ soundscapes can change from song to song but still retain their power! Attention any labels reading this: the DEAF KIDS need a home for their new album The Upper Hand!
Music is created for many different reasons, and sometimes it has the power to heal and take you to other realities. This is just the case with the new PYLAR album entitled Rises In My Mighty being released via Knockturne Records. The best way to describe their sound is pure magic, and every moment you listen to them you will feel like you are taking part in some kind of sacred sonic ritual. CVLT Nation would like to share with you PYLAR’s new song “Ha Sido Alzado” streaming below!
I have come to realize that there is a never ending waterfall of creative beings in this universe! This fact is made evident by the new full length collaboration between the blackened doom band The Lion’s Daughter and the somber folk group Indian Blanket, entitled A Black Sea. I have only heard one song, “Wolves,” but I’m beyond impressed. These two have teamed up to create some very moving music that speaks to the hidden places in my soul and I want to hear more. CVLT Nation is streaming “Wolves” below – press play and you will hear what I’m talking about. The Lion’s Daughter and Indian Blanket record A Black Sea will be released by Good Die Young Music on Nov. 15th, but you can pre-order it HERE NOW!
Straight up and fucking all the way down, from the 1st time I heard the blackened madness of House Of Apparition I have been a fan! Now they have just released their self-titled debut album on Nerdcore Records and all I want to do is plug my skull into their Ultra Raw Black Metal outlet. Listening to the A side of the House Of Apparition record will cause permanent brain damage or just turn all of your thoughts into a black sonic stew. Over 12 minutes of House Of Apparition lo-fi riffs will peel your flesh away from your skeleton but you won’t mind because they will also put your reality into black hole of decaying bliss. Now it’s your turn to experience the A side of the House Of Apparition record we are streaming it below! To order this piece of filthy wax, go HERE!
I’m a firm believer that music can be used as a weapon of protest against the fuckers that want to downpress the poor of all colors around the world. In the world of corporate greed and apathetic youth, it’s rad to know that bands like COP PROBLEM have not given up the good fight. Their new EP Buried Beneath White Noise straight brings the ruckus and turns up the fury past 10! Today CVLT Nation has the honor of streaming COP PROBLEM’s new song “Bear Witness” below…If you reside on the east coast, make sure to check out their upcoming tour starting on Nov. 1st, plus stay tuned for something very special that we have in the works with them…PROTEST & SURVIVE!!! Buried Beneath White Noise will be released digitally on Oct. 24th via their bandcamp, and by the end of the year on 7″ via The Compound (North America)/Prejudice Me (Europe)/Earsplit.

Thanks for checking out the latest installment in my ongoing series focused on covering the heaviest and most devastating of Bands and Artists within the Underground Music Community that travel through The Bay Area. This is a collection of footage that I’ve captured recently at shows on both sides of the bridges in Oakland & San Francisco.
One of the best peace-post-punk records to come out of America in the 80′s was created by San Francisco unsung heroes TRIAL & the name of their classic album is Moments Of Collapse. This band started out as a young peace punk band in the early 80s, but by ’84 their sound really started to develop into something more akin to post punk. TRIAL’s anarcho punk roots ran deep – their singer John was the younger brother of Matt from Crucifix; Chris, their drummer, played for Crucifix; & Cyrnai was once a member of the Sleeping Dogs, the 1st American band signed to the Crass label. Moments Of Collapse was a testament to the band’s creative spirit – the opening track, “Lobotomized Visions,” is a dense wall of industrial dirge that’s sound can never be dated. John’s lyrics were written from somewhere deep within his heart, but he wrote them in a way that we all can be touched by them. Songs such as “Unshackled In The Garden” have this eerie neo-folk vibe about them; his voice seems like a haunting fog rolling over the hills. TRIAL was not afraid to experiment with sound: how it could be bent, stretched & deconstructed, then built in to something new. Every song on Moments Of Collapse drips with damaged emotion, these are compositions that have layers of cold built around a warm skeleton. The drumming on this album is a voice unto itself; the way Chris plays, it’s like he is speaking different languages for us to decode. If you are into post-punk & would like to hear a record that was created from the heart, for our hearts, then TRIAL’s Moments Of Collapse will build your future. So now all you have to do is do whatever you have to do to find this album on vinyl!
