Since the 80′s, I have been a fan of Death Rock and I have never stopped digging the dark, rolling baselines of this genre! I’m also a huge fan of all of the young bands that have embraced the Bat Cave vibe and turned it into something all their own. Which is just the case with Olympia’s TRANSFIX, and their new self-titled album out now on Dutch Tilt Records is a gem. Over 12 catchy, dirged-out tunes this band will have you hooked, and you will realize that Death Rock is alive and well. CVLT Nation has been given the honor of streaming the new TRANSFIX song “Bad Trip” below…Also check out the videos for “Like A Glove” & “New Fix”…Congrats to TRANSFIX for creating an outstanding record that will be here for generations to come…Despair never sounded so good!
ABEST from Northern Germany are creating a very dark and compelling emotional atmosphere with their deranged mix of atmospheric Post-Metal and negative Hardcore. Formed in late 2011, they released their demo in March 2012, followed by a split 7″ with the Irish crust-outfit Absolutist in September 2013. The new full-length Asylum will be released in May 2014.
We at CVLT Nation are honoured to stream the song Shiver off Asylum now – a crawling, depressing and incredibly bleak piece of music that sets the bar very high for the whole album. Dwell in this thunderous, unsettling experience now and prepare for this world’s downfall:
The Hudson Valley four-piece that goes under the name COLONY abruptly decided to put the project on hold in late 2012 – early 2013. With guitarist Mario Cipriano being offered an opportunity to move to the west coast, the band was put on the back burner until recently, when Mario had come back to the Valley. Prior to their “hiatus” or whatever you would like to call it, the band went into the studio to record an LP that was to be released on Glory Kid Ltd. Post-recording, the overall vibe of the record was not what the band had in mind, and decided to hold off on releasing it. When the break was announced, they decided to release a 4 song EP titled Faithealer which is finally seeing the light of day on Cassette through Glory Kid.
The Faithealer EP was a sure sign of the progression they made as a 4 piece, with guitarist Tom Burkland and bassist Dave Harris on vocal duties. Colony makes a lot of nods to the likes of 108, Cursed and early Converge on this release, and I hope they continue to build on that, because these are some of their best songs to date.
Ring the alarm: calling all D-Beat fans! An ultra raging album from DISSEKERAD is coming out on Feb. 18th via Man In Decline Records & Skrammel Records. Over 11 songs, this band proves why this record might be on many end of the year D-Beat lists. I know that I could blast DISSEKERAD every morning and won’t need my daily jolt of caffeine – this band’s anger-charged riffs are enough to get me hyped and keep me going through the day! CVLT Nation is stoked to be streaming their debut album in full below! The Struggle Continues!
Over the past year, Easyrider Records from Los Angeles has become one of our go-to record labels when it comes to doom!

CVLT Nation has been given the honor of bringing you their new song “Nothing Hill.” Roll up a big spliff and blast the haunting riffs of SALEM’S POT!

I hear the destruction of war, I hear death blowing in the wind, I hear melody galloping alongside the headless horsemen…and it’s never sounded so good! What I hear is the new 7 inch by Broken Cross blasting out of my speakers. With each listen to this maddening piece of vinyl you will notice something creeping into your eardrums. CVLT Nation has been given the honor of streaming Broken Cross’s record “Secret Destruction” in full below…to pre-order go HERE!
CVLT Nation has massive respect for Profane Existence, so when we got the opportunity to stream the new EP Primal from WAR//PLAGUE – PE’s Band of the Year for 2013 – we jumped on it! Below stream three pummeling tracks from these punk warriors and pick up the WAR//PLAGUE Mega//Pack here!
These particular tracks were written to be a bit more of our “roots”…hence the title “Primal”. We wanted to trim the fat and just write some straight up punk thrash that’s to the point and fucking pissed off! Not that we don’t do that already. Our point was to just cut to the chase with no fucking around!
Primitive lo-fi filthy groovy sonic sickness is what you are going to experience when you here the new 7 inch by SUMP & LEATHER CHALICE, out now via Blud Auk. Both bands know how to create walls of pumping black audio aggression, but it’s the hidden trap doors of melody that will get you. I know special records when I hear them, and this is one of them. CVLT Nation has been given the diseased honor of streaming this record in full below…make sure to head over Analog Worship to get your copy now!
