Set to Release First Full-Length in Six Years This Spring Via Relapse Records


Following a six-year slumber, Illinois enigmatic sound conjurors, MINSK, are readying to unveil the otherworldly fruit of their long-anticipated new studio creation, "The Crash & The Draw".

The album boasts eleven arresting movements that transcend the confines of post-metal, sludge and psychedelia.

"The Crash & The Draw" will be released via Relapse Records in North America on April 7th, 2015, April 3rd, 2015 in Germany, Benelux and Finland and April 6th, 2015 in the UK and rest of the world and will be available on CD, double LP and digitally.

Das Album wartet mit elf fesselnden Kapiteln auf, welche über die Grenzen des Post-Metal, Sludge und Psychedelic hinausgehen.

MISTY GREY (ESP)
Digitally released via Shadow Kingdom Records
Digital auf Shadow Kingdom Records erschienen


I don’t think there’s a band on this planet that has quite captured the magic we know from the Maryland Doom Metal legends PENTAGRAM until we heard the first few chords of this new Doom Metal band from Spain, named MISTY GREY. MISTY GREY is chalked full of heavy fuzzed out guitar riffs that sound as if they plucked right out of classic PENTAGRAM albums from the 70’s and 80’s, but what really sets them apart is the extremely unique female vocals that blend in with this madness.

Bisher gab es keine Band auf diesem Planeten, welche dieselbe Magie wie die Maryland-Doom-Legende PENTAGRAM einfangen konnte, bis wir die Anschläge dieser neuen Doom-Band hörten, die sich MISYT GREY nennt. MISTY GREY sind vollgepackt mit heavy Fuzz-Gitarrenriffs, als währen sie direkt aus den klassischen PENTAGRAM-Alben aus den 70ern und 80ern entsprungen, aber was sie wirklich außergewöhnlich macht, ist der einmalige weibliche Gesang, welcher dem Ganzen das gewisse Etwas verleiht.

Right now this is only available digitally on Bandcamp
Das Album ist digital auf Bandcamp erhältlich:

OBRERO (SWE)
 2nd album "The Infinite Corridors of Time" released
2tes Album "The Infinite Corridors of Time" ist da


Night Tripper Records proudly presents the second offering of Stockholm's OBRERO. After the critically acclaimed first album OBRERO are exploring deeper into the realms of the of obscure 70’s rock/psych territory while still standing fast to their 80’s metal roots of doom, heavy metal and stoner rock. And again they have the vocal delivery of Martin Missy (Protector)as the cherry on top, a vocal delivery that has something weird and unique to it, like a magic mixture of Bobby Liebling, Lee Dorrian and John Garcia, turning from a full-throated howling animal to a ghastly, almost eerie master of ceremonies in seconds.

Night Tripper Records ist stolz euch das zweite Output von Stockholms OBRERO zu präsentieren. Nach ihrem hochgelobten Debüt tauchen OBRERO tiefer in die obskuren 70er-Psych-Rock-Gefilde ein, während sie tief im 80er-Doom-Metal, Heavy Metal und Stonerrock verwurzelt bleiben. Das i-Tüpfelchen setzt wieder der Gesangsbeitrag von Martin Missy (Protector), dem etwas Bizarres wie Einzigartiges innewohnt, wie eine magische Mixtur aus Bobby Liebling, Lee Dorrian und John Garcia, vom aus vollem Hals jaulenden Tier bis zum entsetzlichen, fast schon furchteinflößenden Zeremonienmeister.

SECRETS OF THE SKY (US)
Signs to Metal Blade Records
Unterschreiben bei Metal Blade Records


Oakland, CA natives, SECRETS OF THE SKY, have signed with Metal Blade Records and will be releasing their sophomore album in the summer of 2015! The psychedelic, doom act released "To Sail Black Waters" through Kolony Records in late 2013. The album was incredibly well received and Decibel Magazine declared that it "overflows with that rare quality of sounding familiar while remaining wholly unique…Do not miss this." Popular blog Metal Injection took describing the band's sound to task and said "imagine if you tossed Neurosis, more recent Immortal, and Porcupine Tree into a blender…it's an awesome fucked up mix."

After touring in support of "To Sail Black Waters" over the past two years, SECRETS OF THE SKY are prepared to take their next step. They've completed tracking their sophomore album at Trident Studios with producer/engineer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation). Details and new music will be released this summer.

SECRETS OF THE SKY comments on joining forces with Metal Blade Records: "We are very excited to be joining the Metal Blade Records roster. The Metal Blade legacy, reputation and commitment to heavy music has stood the test of time. The staff we have been working with genuinely "get" what it is that our band is doing and have been tremendously supportive of it thus far. We are also pleased to announce that our second full length will be released in the coming months. The album was again recorded by Juan Urteaga at Trident Studios and is another abstract concept piece. We believe we pushed ourselves in writing it to further develop our sound and we put more focus on creating a collection of songs that flow from beginning to end, while still retaining the cinematic qualities we originally set out with on our debut."


SECRETS OF THE SKY aus dem kalifornischen Oakland haben bei Metal Blade Records unterschrieben und veröffentlichen im Sommer 2015 ihr zweites Album! Der psychedelische Doom-Act brachte "Sail Black Waters" Ende 2013 über Kolony Records heraus. Das Album wurde unheimlich positiv bewertet, und das Decibel Magazine schrieb dazu "Es besitzt die seltene Eigenheit, vertraut zu klingen und gleichzeitig völlig einzigartig … Nicht entgehen lassen." Der beliebte Blog Metal Injection brachte es mit seiner Beschreibung der Band auf den Punkt: "man stelle sich einen Mix aus Neurosis, neueren Immortal und Porcupine Tree vor … verdammt geiler, schräger Scheiß."

Nach zweijähriger Tour für "To Sail Black Waters" sind SECRETS OF THE SKY nun für den nächsten Schritt bereit. Ihr zweites Album wurde in den Trident Studios mit Produzent und Tontechniker Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation) aufgenommen. Details und neue Musik also im kommenden Sommer.

SECRETS OF THE SKY bemerken zum Schulterschluss mit Metal Blade Records: "Wir freuen uns, bei Metal Blade untergekommen zu sein. Das Vermächtnis, der Ruf und die Leidenschaft des Labels für harte Musik hat sich über die Jahre hinweg bewährt. Die Leute, mit denen wir dort arbeiten, verstehen wirklich, worum es uns als Band geht, und sind bislang unheimlich hilfsbereit gewesen. Zweitens verkünden wir mit Stolz, dass unser nächstes Album in den kommenden Monaten fertig sein wird. Wir haben wieder mit Juan Urteaga in den Trident Studios aufgenommen, und es handelt sich erneut um ein abstraktes Konzeptwerk. Wir sind der Meinung, dass wir uns als Komponisten weit aus dem Fenster gelehnt haben, um unseren Stil weiterzuentwickeln, und haben uns darauf konzentriert, einen Fluss vom ersten bis zum letzten Song herzustellen,wobei wir die cineastischen Qualitäten wahren, die wir schon auf unserem Debüt zeigten."

THE BLACK GOAT UPRISING (US)
New album, "Medusa", coming up in March
Debütalbum "Medusa" erscheint im März


THE BLACK GOAT UPRISING is an orchestrated miasma of dark sounds including dark ambient, noise, and doom metal. Inspired and fueled by an anger of the state of affairs of a theistic society where celebrity culture and social media are the opiate of the masses. Originally the soundtrack for a horror film that was never made, this music is now the soundtrack of a revolution for those who never accepted the popular social narratives or followed the sheep to gain their acceptance. It is NOT about writing the next hit or following the latest trends. No verses, no choruses... The Black Goat Uprising have put the finishing touches on the debut release "Medusa". Set for release on March 27th.

THE BLACK GOAT UPRISING haben nicht nur einen obercoolen Bandnamen, sie vereinen auch auf ganz besonders böse Art und Weise Dark Ambient, Noise und Doom Metal. Ihre Inspiration gewinnt die Gruppe aus dem Zustand einer theistischen Gesellschaft, in der eine Celebrity-Kultur und soziale Netzwerke das Opium der Massen symbolisieren. "Medusa" könnte auch der Soundtrack eines aufwühlenden Horrorfilms sein, eignet sich aber ebenso gut als Untermalung einer Revolution gegen starre soziale Gefüge und die Herdenmentalität der Massen. Erwartet jedenfalls auf keinen Fall eine Band, die probiert, Euch den nächsten Singlehit zu servieren und nach gängigen Songschemata vorgeht. Chef-GOAT Jimmy Psycho schrieb "Medusa" u.a. während seiner Zeit als Beschäftigter (nicht Insasse!) einer geschlossenen Anstalt. Das entsprechende Alptraumszenario hört man auf dem Album bestens durch: ein orchestriertes Chaos, dem niemand entrinnen kann. "Medusa" erscheint am 27ten März auf Rot'n'Roll Army Records.

UFOMAMMUT (ITA)
"ECATE" RELEASE TOUR
APRIL 18TH TO 30TH 2015 


UFOMAMMUT unveiled details about their upcoming 7th album "ECATE", which is due out on MARCH 30TH 2015 via Neurot Recordings! Here is their PR company statement, in case you missed it: 

"The Italian power trio, known for their almightily heavy capabilities and psychedelic prowess, have as many discernible similarities as they do differences to their formative roots. Never pandering to the easy classification of doom, UFOMAMMUT charge their sludgy output with inimitable energy and wild, wayfaring ambition which is matched by the tightknit musical understanding that flows telepathically between the three members; Poia, Urlo, and Vita."

UFOMAMMUT haben Details zu ihrem siebten Album "ECATE" bekanntgegeben, welches am 30. März 2015 auf Neurot Records erscheint. Hier das Statement ihrer PR-Firma, falls ihr es noch nicht gelesen habt:

"Das italienische Power-Trio, das für sein omnipotentes Können im Heavy-Sektor und seine psychedelischen Fähigkeiten bekannt ist, bleibt in gleichem Maße wiedererkennbar, wie es sich von den prägenden Wurzeln entfernt hat. Die Band gab sich nie mit der einfachen Doom-Klassifikation zufrieden, sondern lädt das Sludge-Outfit mit unnachahmlicher Energie und wildem Ehrgeiz auf, der eng mit dem musikalischen Verständnis verbunden ist, welches geradezu telepathisch zwischen den drei Bandmitgliedern - Poia, Urlo und Vita - herrscht."
