I’m sure plenty of you have heard the saying, “something wicked this way comes.” Well, after the intro sermon on Hostium’s The Bloodwine of Satan LP, you might just echo that sentiment. Iron Bonehead Productions is as reliable as labels come, and in this new holocaustic metal offering, Hostium bring the

Oranssi Pazuzu have been on a journey of sonic exploration since their inception. Through the years, their sound has evolved, breaking the boundaries of black metal and psychedelia, and spiralling into other experimental domains. Ontto (the bassist of the band) discusses the various aspects of the new record, Varahtelija, including the

Calgary, Alberta, Canada’s WAKE has been a widely revered band from the get-go, receiving love from members of many popular hardcore, grindcore, and powerviolence acts and has become a duly noted grinding force of abnormal nature since their inception in 2009. With a consistent touring schedule having them trek through

Coming from Finland, Horse Latitudes are well versed in the slow, glacial doom that seems to be oozing from this country. Works with acts such as fellow Finns Hooded Menace and Scotland’s Ommadon, among more, as well as a series of full-lengths, tells us as much. And these guys might be playing

There is a still small, but unapologetic entity that has slithered out of Virginia’s most recluse and tormented underground in very recent times that you all need to familiarize yourselves with, and that entity is Cerbera Odollam, a DIY underground label dedicated, in their own words, to total aural denial (and

One of the most promising bands to come out of Greece in recent years is Omega Monolith. Having released Black Campaign, and their Vile EP, the band is evolving in the most intriguing of ways. A few weeks before they release their new album, Fungus, we discuss with the band their origin,

Nuclear War Now! Productions has provided the underground scene with a steady gait of quality releases over the years, none of which ever get much adoration from mainstream fans. Bring Me The Horizon will never release a record through NWN! and that’s why we love this label so much at CVLT Nation.

After Youth Code surfaced in 2013 with their debut self-titled album, the heavens just fucking shook. It was impossible to believe that a band of similar stature as Skinny Puppy had finally broken onto the EMB scene to finally fill a gap in the electro-industrial realm that had remained vacant for decades. Many

In 2012, I was at a festival called Sound and Fury in Santa Barbara, California, shooting the shit with my friends in the parking lot of the festival grounds, when this dude comes out of nowhere to inform us that the next band playing was, and I quote, “fast as

Coming across split releases is always great! You get to listen to multiple bands, compare them to each other, remember other instances when you had a chance to listen to their music and discover something new. In this new split from New Atlantis, I got to remember the instrumental progressive post-hardcore visions of

Corrections House saw Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea,) Scott Kelly (Neurosis,) Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) and Mike IX Williams (EyeHateGod) getting together, merging their sonic tendencies and releasing, so far, two great albums of experimental industrial/doom/sludge. Now, we have reached the point where Corrections House cannot address all of the members’

For the last several years, Imperial Triumphant has been on a slower climb to widespread recognition in the underground metal world. Abyssal Gods, their second full length, was a bit of a breakthrough album last year. For those who have been paying attention all along, you know that Imperial Triumphant
