WINDHAND release video and lead single "Grey Garden" from new album "Eternal Return" coming October 5th! #relapserecords #doommetalfront


Photo by Joey Wharton
Richmond, Virginia's psychedelic heavyweights WINDHAND unveil "Grey Garden", the video and lead single off their forthcoming album "Eternal Return".

"Eternal Return" is a complete life-to-death journey. As unplanned things go, it's an observation of as well as a reflection on life's ups and downs, joys and sorrows, beginnings and ends. Between the band's 2015 highly acclaimed "Grief's Infernal Flower" and 2018's "Eternal Return" WINDHAND welcomed new life, survived lineup changes and mourned unexpected death. The songs and song ordering are the direct result of those experiences. Where "Halcyon" is assured in its opening, the closing track "Feather" is its funeral march.




WINDHAND wrote "Eternal Return" all throughout the winter. Out of the sessions, "Halcyon", "Grey Garden", "Red Cloud" and the monstrous "Eyeshine" emerged as the heaviest tracks, while "Pilgrim's Rest", "Diablerie" and "Feather" embodied the more reflective side of WINDHAND. The juxtaposition of heavy, psychedelic and pensive is less like Black Sabbath or Sleep and more like Soundgarden or Veruca Salt. But the name-drops aren't absolute so much as signals of WINDHAND's ability to stretch beyond genre confines.

"Eternal Return" represents a new era for the group, a chrysalis moment that takes them to new and unforeseen heights. Boosted by Garrett Morris' consistently cool riffs-forged at the crossroads of Iommi's otherworldly import and Kurt Cobain's spontaneous precocity-powered by Ryan Wolfe and Parker Chandler's groove-laden rhythms, and propelled by Dorthia Cottrell's smoky yet wistful vocals, WINDHAND's new album is a two-step jump for Richmond's finest purveyors of the psycho-actively heavy. Adorned by Arik Roper's (Sleep, High on Fire) impressive cover art, Eternal Return not only looks the part of WINDHAND's artistic growth but sounds the part.


WINDHAND brought Jack Endino back into the fold. Together, they spent two weeks recording at Soundhouse Recording in Seattle. Described as "smooth" and "intense", the sessions with the famed producer were just what WINDHAND wanted. Endino also understood the group's artistic progression, chiefly the admiration of and blending in late 80s/early 90s grunge. Out of it all, WINDHAND continued to refactor and refine their vision of heavy. A new era of psychedelic heaviness is upon us with WINDHAND's genre-blurring "Eternal Return". Sweet, fuzzed-out oblivion has never been closer.

"Eternal Return" sees its release October 5th on Relapse Records. WINDHAND venture on a full North American tour this fall with Satan's Satyrs.

Enjoy the Summer Doom Depression with brand new albums by AMAROK, DOOMED, DRUG CULT, KING HEAVY & THE RED COIL #doommetalfront #translationlossrecords #solitudeproductions #ritualproductions #cruzdelsurmusic #argonautarecords



AMAROK
"Devoured"
Translation Loss Records

California sludge/doom outfit AMAROK debut their first full length in partnership with Translation Loss Records entitled "Devoured". With four epic and expansive tracks spanning almost 70 minutes, AMAROK take their listeners on a sorrowful journey of epic proportions. Vast and powerful, AMAROK prey on your darkest phobias imparting the perception of nearly drowning, the claustrophobic sensation of being held under water until the last second when released and gasping for air. Each track delivers focused and fearless journeys through harrowing, metallic riffs and rips through bleak, unsettling atmosphere while cataclysmic waves of bass and drums pummel from the inside out.

"On 'Devoured', AMAROK combine melodiously haunting funeral doom metal with painfully distorted, gnawing drone sounds. Feels like disturbing Khanate interpret Pallbearer-style hymns of grief and despair!" – Doom Metal Front

AMAROK formed in Chico, California in 2009. They released their first self-titled EP in October of 2010 followed by three well-received splits with Hell, Enth and Pyramido. AMAROK have played multiple tours up and down the west coast with notable bands such as Cough, Bell Witch, Floor, Samothrace, Noothgrush, Weedeater, Atriarch and more.

"Devoured" was produced by Sanford Parker and mastered by James Plotkin.

"With the band moving towards long form doom with complex, evolving riffs and dynamic changes, collectively we felt that our material warranted a call to Sanford Parker", recalls bassist/vocalist Brandon Squyres. "We booked a short west coast tour to meet with Sanford in LA at Big Bad Studios and spent a week collaborating with him on material and playing with his extreme noise style to compliment the intensity of the new songs. We then sent the recordings to James Plotkin to master, and spent a month dialing everything in to perfect the albums enormous live sound".

DOOMED
"6 Anti-Odes To Life"
Solitude Productions

There are few bands around in the slow paving music genre with a programmatic name. So with DOOMED, who are originated in Germany's far eastern province Saxony. They have released six full- length albums within six years on the respected Russian doom metal label Solitude Productions. Their newest effort is called "6 Anti-Odes To Life" serving six plus one lengthy tracks about representative topics that could lead to reject human existence and life at all.

"On '6 Anti-Odes To Life', DOOMED take you on a multi-faceted trip through the horrors of life combining old school doom and death metal with vast, progressively evolving soundscapes full of tons heavy guitar riffs and beautifully chanting leads. It's both a melancholic symphony and a sonic statement to defend life against the real existing adversities." – Doom Metal Front

"There are so many situations in life I despise", says DOOMED mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Laube, "like death, parting, ignorance, competition and greed, the ruination of Mother Earth, religion, uncertainty, sickness, threat, war – a never ending story. This is what I tell about in '6 Anti-Odes ...' but in the final seventh track – 'Layers - Ode to Life' –, which is proving in melancholic manner that I actually love living. I'm virtually absorbing life, embracing it – I want to stay! Finally, this instrumental song dissolves the album's overall mood. Feel invited to read my thoughts about it in the booklet!"

"6 Anti-Odes To Life" is way more melancholic and leaving the progressive death metallic paths entered on "Anna", DOOMED's acclaimed predecessor. Pierre returns to the essence of doom taking much time to evolve a massive wall of sound.

"Of course, there are nasty parts as well", Pierre adds. "It still matters to be uncomfortable, and to combine layer after layer, melodies and create connections. There's so much cinema in my head when creating music. The album is both a step back, stylistically, and forward when talking about new influences like pointed post-metal elements, vast soundscapes and loads of flow, which I dig a lot."

In 2018, DOOMED is far away from the standard death doom metal of their early days writing ambitious multifaceted and highly empathetic music that is channeling anger and frustration in pure sonic beauty. For the first time Pierre is singing the clean parts himself proving that his vocal skills are as impressive as the abyssal growls. Adding his brother Yves into the compositorial process, who is playing all main guitar leads on the album, DOOMED has become something like a real band leaving its strict one-man project character.

Guest musicians:
Willjiam Nijhof  (vocals – Faal)
Andreas Kaufmann (vocals – Charon, Hatespawn, Purgatory)
Uwe Reinholz (acoustic guitar)

DRUG CULT
s/t
Ritual Productions

The rite is a 9-track vortex of majestic heaviness laced with an evocative psychedelic haze, whereby classic melodies meld with fuzz-drenched riffs cultivating an enticing potion of technicolour wickedness. Although a grooving heavyweight tone drives throughout the rite, a darkened presence is forever evident, hexing you into DRUG CULT’s realm.

"DRUG CULT's self-titled debut serves female fronted, hypnotically rolling occult doom metal unmistakably nourishing itself from the billowing womb of the stoned master wizard!" – Doom Metal Front

Formed at the edge of Mt. Jerusalem in the hills of Mullumbimby, Australia, DRUG CULT is the alchemic workings of guitarist Vin Steele (ex-Wolfmother, Megaritual, Sun Of Man), vocalist Aasha Tozer, drummer Dale Walker (Megaritual, Sun Of Man) and bassist Maggie Schreiber. Their elemental craft has been brewing since April 2015, shaping the vision of a heavy celestial voyage through atmospheric sound connection.

The band's first offering was recorded live at Rocking Horse Studios, Byron Bay during Solstice December 2016, with George Carpenter at the recording and production helm and mastered by Brian Lucey of Magic Garden Mastering.

KING HEAVY
"Guardian Demons"
Cruz Del Sur Music

KING HEAVY's "Guardian Demons" reflects the most visceral edge of their first EP, "Horror Absoluto", and the sophisticated side of the self-titled debut but closer to traditional Heavy Metal and to the darkest Epic Doom.

"Once more, KING HEAVY showcase Chilean doom power on 'Guardian Demons', which is deeply rooted in 80s epic metal and characterized by Luce Vee's unique extroverted vocal style!"

Two years in the making, the album leads to the most classic sound of Trouble, Judas Priest melted with the sound of Northern Europe as Minotauri or Reverend Bizarre. Featuring HOODED PRIEST’s singer Luce Vee and founding PROCESSION member and ex-bassist Daniel Saa, the band will embark on an European tour in October 2018 performing at the Doom Over Vienna festival among others.

Tracklist:
1. Guardian Demon (7:12)
2. (Death is but an extreme form of) Narcosis (6:58) 3. Doom Shall Rise (6:59)
4. Cult Of The Cloven Hoof (5:19)
5. Come My Disciples (10:15)
6. As in a Nightmare (6:39)

Line-up:
Luce Vee – Vocals
Matias Aguirre – Guitar
Daniel Pérez Saa – Bass
Miguel Canessa – Drums

THE RED COIL
"Himalayan Demons"
Argonauta Records

THE RED COIL released the first three tracks Ep “Slough Off” in 2009. On April 2013, their debut album "Lam" came out including ten songs, recorded and mixed by Andrea Garavaglia (Mesmerize) and mastered by Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere, Allhelluja) at Dead Rat Studio (Denmark). The album received very good feedback and positive reviews. The Red Coil played a lot of live shows in the north of Italy, very appreciated for their energy and raw attitude. In autumn 2015 the bass player Toni decided to left the band, when a lot of new songs was quite ready. The Red Coil announced the new bass player Gelindo in December 2015 and immediately started working and arranging the new material. The new album, "Himalayan Demons", is highly recommended to fans of Iron Monkey, Spiritual Beggars or Corrosion Of Conformity.

"THE RED COIL unleash the 'Himalayan Demons', serving a sludge-infested groovy southern metal/stoner bastard!" – Doom Metal Front

Tracklist:
1. Withdrawal Syndrome Wall
2. Godforsaken
3. Oriental Lodge
4. Opium Smokers Room
5. The Shroud
6. Moksha
7. The Eyes of Kathmandu
8. When the Levee Breaks

Mike Scheidt's YOB release 8th and most possessive studio album: "Our Raw Heart" – HAUNTED catch with beautiful doom metal on "Dayburner" – KITE break "The All Penetrating Silence" serving groovy sludge/post-metal! #doommetalfront #relapse records #twinearthrecords #sludgelordrecords



YOB
"Our Raw Heart"
Relapse Records

YOB, the Oregon-based trio released "Our Raw Heart", the band's eighth full-length album and Relapse Records debut.


"'Our Raw Heart' is digging deep turning hidden emotions inside out – it's the most possessive album YOB have ever been recording!" – Doom Metal Front

"We’re very excited to share this new music", says singer and guitar player Mike Scheidt. "We gave it everything we have. Going from an uncertain future in the beginning of 2017, to writing and then recording a new album at the end of it, it was quite a year. We're very grateful. We're looking forward to hitting the road again and celebrating decibels and good cheer with friends worldwide. Can't wait."

"Our Raw Heart" was co-produced by the band and Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Ore., with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive).

HAUNTED
"Dayburner"
Twin Earth Records

Sicily's HAUNTED drop second album called "Dayburner", which has been recorded by Carlo Longo at NuevArte Studio in Catania and mastered by the renowned producer Brad Boatright (Sleep, COC, Yob, Obituary, among others) at Audiosiege Engineering in Portland, Oregon.

Singer Cristina Chimirri comments: "When we started to develop the songwriting process of 'Dayburner', we wanted to talk about the course, the unexplored passage between the beginning and the end. Without necessarily imposing fixed points, but tracing a material circle and an anti-material ascensional progression.”

Bass player Frank Tudisco adds: "'Dayburner' is actually the representation of a day, not properly a day as we commonly know it, but something that become immediately night right after the first flashes of the sun. The light of this sun is too weak and can’t afford to challenge the strength of the darkness. Only thanks to minimal differences in tonal contrasts we are able to distinguish the sun from the moon. We can actually say that all the proper attributes of the day miserably fail here."

"HAUNTED is the Sicilian answer to grand female fronted bands like Windhand or Alunah. Find top quality, stoically rolling doom metal on 'Dayburner', which is filled to the brim with catchy guitar riffs and Cristina Chimirri's exceptionally soulful vocals!" – Doom Metal Front

The evocative cover artwork has been created by the well-know artist and photographer Deborah Sheedy.

The track list is the following:
Mourning Sun
Waterdawn
Dayburner
Communion
Orphic
Vespertine
No Connection With Dust
Lunar Grave

HAUNTED line-up:
Francesco Bauso – Guitars
Dario Casabona – Drums
Cristina Chimirri – Vocals
Francesco Orlando – Guitars
Frank Tudisco – Bass

KITE
"The All Penetrating Silence" EP
Sludgelord Records

"The All Penetrating Silence" by Norwegian band KITE is digitally released via Sludgelord Records. A vinyl release is also planned for the near future.

The band was originally formed in 1998, and went through different lineups until today's three‐piece got together in 2007. KITE released numerous DIY demos and EP's in the early years, while building up a following with frequent touring all over Scandinavia, but first and foremost Britain, where they pulled off 5 tours. In 2007, starting over with a fresh and heavier sound, their second album – "The Hook, The Line, The sinker" – was released on their own label 60/40 Records. Since then the band has been working on and off in between their other band projects, but 2018 sees KITE back at it full throttle, stronger and heavier than ever.

"KITE play non-standard sludge/post-metal, which is much too groovy and diverse to fit the common genre trademarks. 'The All Penetrating Silence' is an ultra-heavy riff monster, blues-soaked and as infinitely reverberating as the cosmological radiation." – Doom Metal Front

Recorded summer 2017 at Amper Tone, Oslo, by Kim Lillestøl
