Skull-Crushing Heaviness: THOU and THE BODY – “You, Whom I Have Always Hated” Review

After having released an utter barrage of scum and hate on us throughout 2014 (both bands have released EP’s, splits and full-lengths throughout the year), The Body and Thou have returned, once again, with another frightening manifestation of their hemorrhagic output and prolificity, and with another monument to complete auditive annihilation.

Abstracter’s – Wound Empire + Review

The music of Abstracter always seems to have an underlying melancholic tone, which is mainly derived from their use of ambiance. In tracks such as “Open Veins,” this aspect of the band becomes instantly apparent, without meaning that melancholy is the only weapon in their arsenal. The manner in which they build up anticipation with the creeping start of “Lightless,” and the more unearthly perspective of Abstracter in songs such as “Cruciform,” reveals the depth to which this act can travel in terms of sonic versatility.

Eternally Wretched: LEVIATHAN – Scar Sighted Review

Scar Sighted is a gem in this 2015 that has just started for two reasons mainly: one, you will not hear a metal album quite like this all year, not only for this year actually, but likely for years to come; and two, with Scar Sighted, Leviathan is FUCKING BACK, back to their most disgusting and geniously appalling craft, the one we had loved so much up until the all time masterpiece Massive Conspiracy Against All Life came to life back in 2008.

Exclusive CVLT Nation Streaming: CHAINS Experience “Evil I Am” & “Rito Funebre”

Why is everything around me moving so slowly? Why do I feel like THC has me suspended in mid air? Why do I feel like the doom I’m listening to is different than most I’ve heard? The answer to all of these questions is that I’m listening to unreleased tracks from the druids of the drone riff, CHAINS.
