CATAHARSIS

Band:YOB
Album:CATAHARSIS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

There are many YOB and doom metal fans alike that consider YOB’s second full-length album “Catharsis” as the band’s best album. The band have been aware of this, which in turn had them perform “Catharsis” in its entirety at the 2012 edition of the respected Roadburn Festival to much acclaim. It is considered one of the cult American doom metal albums released in the last ten years. The only issue was that “Catharsis” had been out of print for many years and was hard to come across as the initial label that released it folded and it was never re-pressed or made available. That is until now.

Ten years after its release (though “Catharsis” was recorded in 2002, much before it was first released in Nov of 2003) Profound Lore is proud to unveil the definitive re-issue of YOB’s sought after cult classic. Re-mastered from its original tape source by legendary grunge godfather Tad Doyle, making “Catharsis” sound that much more complete and monstrous than its original incarnation, along with new artwork and presentation by Aaron Edge and liner notes by YOB mastermind Mike Scheidt, this re-issue (which is just presented with the three tracks that comprise “Catharsis”) of one of the most colossal American doom metal releases of the last ten years is a reminder of how the vision of YOB culminated and began as a singular entity to what it has become today. That being YOB’s recognition as one of the most important bands in heavy music today.

 

 

THE MISSING

Band:VAURA
Album:THE MISSING
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Brooklyn, NY’s VAURA was formed in late 2009 by guitarist Kevin Hufnagel (also of Gorguts and Dysrhythmia fame) and vocalist/guitarist Joshua Strawn when both musicians were introduced by a mutual friend. Strawn would then Strawn give Hufnagel a demo collection of songs he had been working on in which the music was and unorthodox mixture of grandiose melodic guitars, synth textures, and hazy, distant melodic vocals. When bassist Toby Driver (Kayo Dot and Maudlin Of The Well mastermind) and drummer Charlie Schmid joined the fold, VAURA would then expand on the demo material which would then manifest as their debut album “Selenelion” which was released early 2012 on Weird Records and would gain some attention upon its release amongst notable press outlets such as Decibel, Pitchfork, Dusted, and Alarm Press. Said album would display VAURA’s impeccable sound picture by seamlessly combining such genres as progressive metal, shoegaze, post-punk and indie-rock.

With their new album “The Missing”, VAURA have taken their sound even further and build upon the foundation they laid down with “Selenelion”. By enhancing the progressive metal elements even more, along with bringing in elements that hark back to ‘80s era Rush and classic Queensryche, along with the band’s post-punk and classic ‘80s darkwave influence being more prominent, “The Missing” is the result of four unique musicians converging once again to create one of the most distinct heavy music albums of the year.

Band:SEAN CHAMBERS
Album:THE ROCK HOUSE SESSIONS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

After receiving critical acclaim and worldwide radio play for his two previous CD's, when Floridabased guitarist Sean Chambers began planning for his next album release, he decided to do things differently. The Rock House Sessions features a number of firsts: it's the first album he's recorded as Sean Chambers rather than the Sean Chambers Band; producing for the first time is legendary keyboard player Reese Wynans (best-known as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan's band); and it's his first recording exclusively using studio musicians. Sean's last CD appeared on the Bluesville XM/Sirius Blues Charts as a "Pick to Click" for 6 weeks in a row, as well as 15 weeks on the RMR Weekly Blues Roots Chart and 11 weeks on the House of Blues Radio Chart. Sean Chambers will support the release of The Rock House Sessions with his most extensive cross-country touring yet. 

"Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well." - Mark Uricheck, LIVING BLUES

 

 

READY FIRE AIM

Band:PAUL LAMB AND THE DETROIT BREAKDOWN
Album:READY FIRE AIM
Label:EE
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Ready Fire Aim is the 4th studio album from Paul Lamb and the Detroit Breakdown. It will take you through the drive and riffs of the 70’s, but also has the modern pulse that comes from recording at the legendary Rust Belt Studios(Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker) that keeps it all fresh. Blending blues, classic rock with a dash of Detroit funk.

Paul says of the inspiration for the title ‘Ready, Fire, Aim is a statement. Detroit, like much of the world, is spinning out of control. There is a lot of uncertainty and a lot of guess work. We live in a society of disposable ideas. The world has become a data fire fight, a trigger happy information shoot out. It’s fire first, aim later.’
