THE CULT (and Southern Death Cult) and PRIMAL SCREAM are two of my favourites that I pull out at least once a week, so I’m fucking stoked that these two legends will be hitting Vancouver for an all-ages tour stop at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Nov. 15th! I’ve seen

My eardrums are jumping for joy right now because the new MASSES (Melbourne, Australia)& DEATHCHURCH  (Sydney, Australia) cassette split is way fucking far beyond stellar!!! Both of these bands have created modern day Death Rock/Post Punk anthems that should be considered classics. FYI – the two MASSES tracks were recorded by Phil Calvert of The Birthday

Why go another Halloween with “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”? It’s a great song, no question, but they were even playing that in the store you bought your kid’s Monster High costume in. So if you are tired of releasing the bats and looking to freshen up your Halloween playlist, here are

We are big fans of the melancholy sounds of post punk here in the CVLT Nation HQ, and one record that gets a lot of spins is SHADOWHOUSE’s Hand in Hand, released on Mass Media Records at the beginning of this year. So we jumped at the chance to bring

Three awesome dudes from the Oakland-based grindcore band Infinite Waste (namely madmen Jamison, Kevin, and Matt) were rad enough to have the brilliant idea to put together a compilation of Bay Area-based bands to give out for free at this year’s first edition of California Deathfest this weekend in Oakland, to show visitors and outsiders attending

Review Written by John Villegas Post punk goth trio HALDOL come on strong with their most poignant piece to date. Band leader Geoff Smith lays forth a masterfully vehement clamor that sits satiated in it’s own twisted self portrait. Each song is a deranged soundscape that grows more eerie and intriguing
