Texas-based experimental wall-of-sound ambient metal contingent PYRAMIDS have completed work on their new album “A Northern Meadow”.
The follow-up (as PYRAMIDS on their own, not including their previous collaboration LP’s with artists such as Horseback, Mamiffer, and Nadja) to the 2008 self-titled debut (Hydra Head Records), “A Northern Meadow” sees PYRAMIDS deliver their most stunning and crafted work yet. By taking reference points from genres such as ambient and experimental music, shoegaze (the band once collaborated with Cocteau Twins bass player Simon Raymonde at one point), black metal, and industrial music, “A Northen Meadow” results in being an encompassing album…
Polarizing black metal entity A.M.S.G. have announced the mid-late Feb release of “The Forbidden Transformation” EP. To be released as a 12” vinyl + CD package combo and to be a strictly limited pressing, “The Forbidden Transformation”, as expected, presents some of the most unorthodox, unconventional, alien, and bizarre outer-sound death worship black metal coming out today.
Comprised of three songs clocking in at the 30+ minute mark, “The Forbidden Transformation” presents material unearthed during the “Anti-Cosmic Tyranny” recording sessions and features the final appearance of drummer Kaos Abhorrer who died by his own hand last year, transcending the mortal…

Notorious U.S. black metal entity LEVIATHAN has completed work on its new full-length album “Scar Sighted”.
Continuing in the sound following the “Massive Conspiracy Against All Life” opus, “Scar Sighted” is comprised of ten tracks which hark back to moments encompassing the entire LEVIATHAN repertoire, while creating a demented, epic, and devastating new vision of pure black metal psychosis.
Produced, engineered, and mixed by Billy Anderson in conspiracy with LEVIATHAN sole mastermind Wrest, “Scar Sighted” will be packaged as a boxed CD edition (the only version of the CD this will be available as) which will come with eleven two-sided…

SUMAC, the new band formed by Aaron Turner (ISIS/OLD MAN GLOOM/MAMIFFER) and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (BAPTISTS), and also featuring bassist Brian Cook (RUSSIAN CIRCLES/BOTCH/THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES), have completed work on their debut album “The Deal”.
Formed with the yearning for Aaron Turner to once again create massive, raw, heavy and brutal music while working with a new versatile drummer to bring more of a unique and progressive edge to the ideas he had, the sound SUMAC have manifested does tread familiar territory found in Turner’s previous work while creating a forward-thinking sonic monolith reminiscent of the sound found in…
