Pagan black metal purveyors Modraniht have just released their debut demo entitled To The Dark Mothers, care of Transylvanian Tapes.

Last year, G.L.O.S.S. (Girls Living Outside Society’s Shit) broke the glass ceiling over hardcore with their vicious, spare-no-feelings demo. Here they offer a new virulent rush of their progressive hardcore, this time rather than saber-rattling they mean to tear society’s foundations from ground up. If their demo was the declaration,

If you’re like me, then you’re sick of seeing posts from Facebook friends that are not only racist, sexist, pro-cop, or pro-capitalist, they also lack any credible research behind their convictions. It’s a shame that years of alleged progress are only masked by symbolic legislation. I get it, you came here to

A few days back, CVLT Nation premiered a full stream of HIDEOUS OBSCURE, the brand new record from Canadian evil metal stalwarts OCCULT BURIAL!

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Bone started off their career by releasing the Face Prison mini-album. With this first attempt, they displayed great signs of an off-kilter attitude, with a strong punk and post-punk feeling merging with an alternative rock tone influenced by noise, and with a certain complexity in their song

The darkest recesses of Sweden’s unfuckwithable metal legacy have long since been a part of the nation’s furniture, and to this day its distinctive din pumps vigorously and unapologetically through the hearts of emerging bands worldwide. Situated half way between the country’s capital and the spiritual home of melodic death

It may occur to some learned metal fans that French black metal band Aum sounds more like a band from Central Asia. In song titles and ideology, Central Asia appears to be a strong topic of choice for this mysterious French metal militia, just like Cult of Fire’s fascination for

Last year, Alap Momin took CVLT Nation on a journey through the new heavy. What we learned was that heaviness, for Momin, is not simply about volume. It’s not about finding the next loudest thing. The new heavy is about liminal moments – standing on sonic thresholds facing out onto

There is something fucking GLORIOUS about the music of Morphinist. Maybe it’s the fact this project births several releases a year in a constant – almost hemorrhagic – spawn of creativity; maybe it’s the one-man nature of the project that makes it so impenetrable and intimate; or maybe it’s the music’s mesmerizing and seemingly
