THE DEAL

Band:SUMAC
Album:THE DEAL
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

SUMAC is a new band who’s main core consists of Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer) and drummer Nick Yacyshyn from Baptists (who apparently happens to be Dave Grohl’s new favourite drummer). Bass player Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, These Arms Are Snakes) also joins the duo (as an auxiliary member) and did all the bass tracking on the band’s debut album entitled “The Deal”. An album consisting of steamroller crushing heaviness and methodical free-range technicality.

SUMAC came to form when Aaron Turner had the urge to create music that’s heavy and colossal once again, wanting to bring back the heaviness aspect that he incorporated in Isis, and what he currently does in the OLD MAN GLOOM collective, into a wholly new and different band unlike anything he has previously done before. With one of the goals for SUMAC was for Turner to write some of the heaviest music he has ever written, he found the ideal partner with Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn, one of the best drummers in heavy music today. With SUMAC, Yacyshyn allows himself to showcase and expand his drumming talents even further as it is with SUMAC where we will really witness the true talent of this drummer.

The duo would enter the studio in Seattle late summer to track “The Deal” with Mell Dettmer (Wolves In The Throne Room, Sunn 0)) etc.) where they would be joined by Russian Circles/Botch/These Arms Are Snakes bassist Brian Cook who would ultimately lay the pulse down for the album (which would be mixed by Kurt Ballou of Converge at Godcity Studios and mastered by Mikka Jusslla at Finvoxx Studios in Finland).

Overall, “The Deal” is an absolutely crushing album that stands its own ground which will bring some familiarity with Turner’s repertoire and bring back that classic Hydra Head Records forward-thinking sound and vibe.

 

 

SCAR SIGHTED

Band:LEVIATHAN
Album:SCAR SIGHTED
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Another long-awaited return and rejuvenation of the most notorious and infamous U.S. black metal entity, LEVIATHAN (solely commanded by Wrest, aka Jef Whitehead) has returned with what could possibly be regarded as one of the most glorious moments of Wrest’s musical career, one in which is comprised of a vast musical repertoire like no other in black metal.

Given the name “Scar Sighted”, LEVIATHAN’s fifth full-length album (amongst a repertoire that consists of numerous demos, compilations, EPs, and splits) is an album that comprises familiar moments culled from LEVIATHAN’s entire repertoire into one demented and twisted opus while standing as its own distinct entity within the LEVAIATHAN oeuvre; “Scar Sighted” being years in the making following the chaos, turbulence, and psychotic turmoil surrounding 2011’s controversial “True Traitor True Whore” album. With “Scar Sighted”, LEVIATHAN continues more in the vein of the “Massive Conspiracy Against All Life” masterpiece while other “lurkings” also run amongst the epic sound picture Wrest has painted with “Scar Sighted”.

Produced and engineered by Bill Anderson (Swans, Agalloch, Pallbearer, Red House Painters, Melvins) in Portland Oregon, Anderson in conspiracy with Wrest has helped to manifest the best, most crushing and dark sounding LEVIATHAN album to date likewise.

Also “Scar Sighted” will be specially packaged (all editions of the album) in a special boxed-CD edition with artwork inserts (painted by Jef Whitehead) etc. to complement the album’s stunning final package.

SECRET YOUTH

Band:CALLISTO
Album:SECRET YOUTH
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Finnish post metal sextet makes a dark, gripping comeback

Since their 2004 debut, True Nature Unfolds, Callisto have sought out new ground in the post-metal genre. Their 2006 album Noir took the quintet's sound to cinematic proportions, and 2009's Providence further developed the combo's original approach. Now, Callisto have returned after five years of relatively quiet existence with a new album for Svart Records, entitled Secret Youth. Having gone through some minor lineup changes, the band's new digital single "Backbone" was released in November. Never wanting to record the same album twice and always eager to experiment, the band members themselves describe the new material as “progressive noise rock” - a contradictory concoction of easier, more straightforward elements in the same melting pot with a youthful, experimental style.

This release features a remix of Noonday’s hit ‘London’ alongside two orginal songs produced for Art Gallery in Simon’s trademark Big Beat/Soul style.

The phrase “multi-instrumentalist” gets bandied around a lot but Richie Hayes is the real deal, a one-man musical machine. Once upon a time singer and principle songwriter of ‘The Method’ labelled by Lauren Laverne as “SO Ace! Absolutely cracking..” and enjoying support across Radio 1, 2 and 6Music. Richie’s first solo release material follows the same hip wiggling, groove infused blueprint but expanded both in terms of musical arrangement and artistic vision.

 

 

ISTID I-II

Band:NORTHAUNT
Album:ISTID I-II
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

9 long years after the release of the seminal album "Horizons", we are finally greeted to a new opus by Norway's most unique craftsmen of cold, desolate and deep nordic ambient. Not only is this completely new material, crafted from recordings made from 2003 up until 2014, but we are offered about 1h20 min on a double CD! Constantly tapping into the singular northern landscapes of his native Norway for inspiration, Hærleif Langås transposes his views and feelings of the great white north into intricately deep and poignant soundscapes. Northaunt's sound can best be described as landscapes transformed into aural emanations, enabling the listener to in turn be able to journey through those barren and foreign lands through the minds eye. Quoted from the linear notes is the idea behind this new album: "Once the world was alone, the landscapes had no names and there was no one to see them. An endless number of ice age dawns came and went unseen. The idea of this world, the world as it was before man, inspired me throughout the composition of these tracks. Roughly separated in two parts, one representing the light, the unburdened world before man, the other a much darker side of the same place." Be prepared to embark on a journey to the world before the world, a journey you might not want to come back from..

2CD Edition of 700 copies in 8 Panel Digipack. 8 Tracks. Running Time 1:19.
