On April 1st, get ready to prey at the altar of doom to the sounds of the new MONOLORD album Empress Rising, coming out via Easyrider Records. I can tell you that once you hear this record, you will realize like I did that it a fucking classic. For now, you can check out the new MONOLORD visual for “Empress Rising,” plus you can pre-order this rifftastic piece of vinyl right HERE! CVLT Nation certifies Empress Rising as one of the best DOOMEDELIC records of this decade!
Self-proclaimed “prophets of an alternate death metal”, Aevangelist are just that; a monstrosity the likes of which we’ve never seen. Maybe cross Mitochondrion with Gnaw Their Tongues and you’ll get something like this – crushing blasphemy from another dimension of horror entirely. For if you fully immerse yourself in Aevangelist‘s world of malformed atrocities, there’s no turning back – there is no going back to the way things were.
The compositions on this record are large in nature and heavily painted with noise and nightmarish soundscapes that will leave your jaw on the floor. Throughout its playing, strange machinations, wailing’s and other crippling sounds of suffering can be heard. Indeed, the atmosphere produced on Omen Ex Simulacra is downright unsettling but make no mistake – this record fucking brings it. It’s every bit as hammer-crushing and thick-bodied as any Death Metal record out there, which is precisely what gives it such staying power. It will give you the assault you need but also surprise with a plethora of unimaginable sensations that no sane human being would ever ask for.
I remember when I first heard Iron Monkey, I said damn, these motherfuckers are on that next shit! I have always been a fan of that dirty, crusty, rancid, blues-infected sound; it does something to my blood. While living in London, my mate Adam would always big-up IRON MONKEY while we were smoking the kind bud! Now it’s time for you to check out a full set from these Sludge masters from 1998…All hail the Monkey!
SKINNY PUPPY is a band that changed underground music for many people. So today we would like to celebrate them with a video essay featuring many of their early performances!
What is the most recent piece of vinyl we got that caused a spontaneous dance party in the CVLT Nation HQ? It is Belgrado’s Siglo XXI – every time we put it on our 2 1/2 can not help herself but to get her dance on! Plus, I fucking love every moment of this album myself. So when I saw that Belgrado created a visual for the song “Jeszcze Raz” I was beyond stoked! Check it out right here and now!
This is some throw back shit from a present day band! GAG from Olympia, WA are one of my favourite hardcore bands right now. Something about their music is very soulful and honest in a demented, bugged-out sort of way! Well, they performed at TCTV Public Access and gave a “FTW, don’t ask me for shit” kind of performance! The setting of the show and the way it’s filmed is lo-fi genus. If you see a GAG record, buy it, and if these weirdos come to your town, don’t miss it…In the meantime say it LOUD: No Cops, More GAG!
What band is able to hit me with the downbeat but still make me have visions of sun rays? Uncle Acid And the Deadbeats their brand of cycodelic doom is a sound that i just do not get bored of and i just want to hear more. I have not seen them live yet so video footage has to fill the void. Check out Uncle Acid And the Deadbeats most recent show in Russia filmed Olemus Olemus…Plug in your speakers loud your bongs and get on the Uncle Acid And the Deadbeats spaceship…We love MOSCOW!
Totally disturbing, totally fucked up and totally demented is what the new INDIAN video for their song “Rhetoric of No” is all about. See it for yourself and you be the judge! I will say that INDIAN’S new album ‘From All Purity’ is the shit, and is out now via Relapse Records.
Alright, OK groovy ghoulies…The Cramps were on the next level of radness. This band were a part of my teenage years, and they were one of the few non-hardcore bands that hardcore kids listened to in 1982. The Cramps were totally punk because they just did not give a fuck. They didn’t follow trends because they created their own. No matter how popular they got, they stayed grounded and were always a band for the people! Their front man, Lux, was one of the chosen few when it came to front men. This crazy creature brought that insane electricity to every show, every nite. When you were at The Cramps’ show, the GOO GOO MUCK got all in your bones & you couldn’t help but move. Check out this live footage for your zombie enjoyment…repeat after me, “I Was A Teenage Werewolf!”
