CVLT Nation is stoked to have an exclusive stream of two track’s ‘Curse of The Cross’ and ‘Sick Sick System’ off Police Bastard‘s new album ‘Confined’. Which is released on Iron Man Records on Nov 23rd 2013. Starting out in 1993, Police Bastard are pretty infamous at this stage. So no need for any introductions with band member links to Doom, Sore Throat, Filthkick, Sensa Yuma etc. Their new album ‘Confined’ sticks to their cynical view of the world mixed with innovative guitar textures and driving industrial intensity. Thought provoking monologue’s and confrontational lyrics bring you on a cold doom-laden journey of perpetual war, psychological mind control, disillusionment and omnipresent bullshit. For a band that has been knocking about on and off for twenty years they could be forgiven for reverting to the formulaic. However they rethink and deliver a furious maelstrom of complex dark hardcore, best served cold.
Today CVLT Nation is bringing you an exclusive stream of “Love in a Cold World” from Finland’s BEASTMILK, off their upcoming LP Climax will be out Nov 29th via Svart Records. This song hits home with me, because I often feel like I have created my own little island in this universe, where love and happiness can exist because I keep myself away from the hateful world around me. It may sound dramatic, but I think Beastmilk understands! Also check out Part I of the making of Climax below!
Did someone spike my coffee with acid this morning? Why do I feel like I’m crawling down a hole in my mind filled with magic mushrooms?

CVLT Nation is stoked to be streaming 30,000 Monkies Somewhere Over The Painbow in full below…This record will be released via ConSouling Agency on Oct.11th.

NOTE: These hard working fellows are looking for a label of some kind that would be interested in releasing this record in physical form, so I’m putting the word out. If you think you could help them out I suggest you contact them (firstname.lastname@example.org) because this is a record I’d very much like to see on wax or tape or something. A release very much deserving of a physical home.
I’m excited! The new Night Heir album has finally appeared. It’s funny because I was wondering a few months ago if this year we’d see something new from Night Heir. Their last album Wind In My Dream Mist In My House is a sleeper gem of 2010, it’s impression grew on me significantly since I first heard it — so I’ve been wondering what exactly this now growing collective would come up for a follow-up.
Well, it’s quite brilliant. Overall it’s stronger and more generous than the aforementioned record. This new effort quickly ensnares you with it’s charm, unique atmosphere and bold approach which has been refined and expanded since last we encountered Night Heir.
A Maze Of Evenings brings more members (or contributors) into the circle, and with them more sounds and textures along with extended life; it hits about an hour and twelve minutes. While it was largely a one and two person project last time this record brings a swath of different vocal contributions and styles which enhance their tradition of wide scope in that arena, smoothly buttressing the swooning progressions both in the traditional guitar/bass/drums threesome, but also in the synth/keys and noise. These last two elements come to play an even bigger role than last time overall.
All of this thickens the already eerie atmosphere, new and larger amounts of varied, layered vocals add new dimensions to this records sound. The production was handled by the band rather than Colin Marston resulting in a more coarse, lo-fi quality compared to a surprisingly finer one on the previous record. This leaves the distorted and loud moments sounding grittier and the quiet valleys are a little more crisp.

On this day, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT will release their new EP Goliath via Vatican Records, and you will realize this band are on some next level shit when it comes to the dark arts!
