About three years after the release of their ‘Debut EP’, French blackened-sludge/post-metal-hardcore five-piece Ssanahtes just announced the official release of its debut and self-titled full-length album, coming out for CD & Digital formats on March through the Germany-based record label WOOAARGH (Ancst, Employed To Serve, Grim Van Dom…).

In the meantime, a first audio excerpt has just surfaced on the internet while physical pre-orders will be launched in a few days.

For the record

Created in summer 2013 by Franck (guitar) and Fabien (vox/synth), Ssanahtes is a post-metal band influenced by Godflesh, Cult of Luna or Kickback. Their debut EP was released in April 2015. How does it sound? Think about some some sludge metal played on 8 strings guitars.

Their first album was entirely composed by Franck and re-arranged with the band, it shows a brand new face of the band: darker and more oppressive, enhanced by a different production. Their music still talks about their lives and emphasized the lyrics with tribal and psychedelic jams, brand new ambiances in order to create something unique.

After playing in Bordeaux with Toundra, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, The Great Old Ones and Black Tusk, they have signed with WOOAAARGH Records (Ancst, Employed To Serve, Grim Van Doom) to release their first album. A Spanish tour is planned from the 19th to the 24th of February,and it will be followed by a French, Belgium and Dutch tour in May 2018, while they have already started to work on their next record…

For fans of AmenRa, Godflesh, Cult of Luna, Kickback, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation…

Belgian Alt-Stoner Metallers Black Strike stream debut EP for full. New effort in the works.

12/14/2017 at 1:49 pm (Uncategorized)

Black Strike

About two years after the official release of their debut EP released in 2015 for CD & Digital through M & O Music Label, tons of gigs and a few months of hard-work on new tunes, Belgian alternative/stoner metallers Black Strike are planning to release a second mini-album called ‘132’ and expected for the first months on 2018.

In the meantime, the band just shared its first self-titled effort for full streaming on Bandcamp.

…For the record…

Born on the ashes from different bands, BLACK STRIKE reunites 5 musicians with common influences. After multiple experiences on stage together or apart, these 5 buddies found their own musical touch and are now playing a powerful and tough mix between alternative-rock, stoner/grunge and nu-metal.

In early 2015, Black Strike started a crowdfunding project via Kiss Kiss Bank Bank. Less than 45 days later, and thanks to its fans, the band managed to get the necessary amount of money to the recording of its first EP. This one, recorded and mixed at Studio Hautregard (Mass Hysteria, Channel Zero, …) was released in late 2015.

In 2017, the band got back in studio to record a new EP which will see the light on spring 2018.

For fans of Alice In Chains, Deftones, Monster Magnet, Rage Against The Machine, Soundgarden…

Swiss indie-pop/dark-folk/trip-hop trio dIVA released debut album ‘SOL’ // Full Stream Available

11/27/2017 at 9:21 pm (Uncategorized)

DivA-_S9A8397

As announced previously : Swiss indie-pop/dark-folk/trip-hop trio dIVA just officially released its debut full-length album ‘SOL’ for LP & Digital formats through Division Records (HEXIS, Impure Wilhelmina, Unfold…) and entire streaming on Bandcamp and on the main legal platforms.

The 5 songs on this album, which happens to be only the first part of a diptych whose sequel will come out at the end of 2018, refer exclusively to the rocky planets of the solar system. The music is a faithful reflection of the telluric aspect of these astral bodies, through a music borrowing so much from smooth dream-pop and throbbing trip-hop.

Some incursions into the dark-folk and drone burned territories make the final mixture a formidable composite of efficiency, irremediably causing total fascination and immediate adhesion. The themes dealt with in the lyrics, directly related to the planets from which they are inspired, are depicted as dark & rich metaphors, inviting an introspective journey from which no one will emerge unscathed.

One thus gives oneself with pleasure to these original and tortuous compositions, in which the talent and inspiration of their authors shine like a star in the remotest abyss of the galaxy.

Stream the whole album on Bandcamp | Grab your physical LP 12” copy | Have a look on the official music video of “Lune”

…For the record…

The project dIVA is born in 2013 when the guitarist Pierre-Emmanuel and the singer Lisa-Marie first meet. The two musicians soon discover a common desire to express themselves artistically in a formation that can grant total freedom and a true evolutionary vision.

The conceptual framework of their first album is immediately apparent. The solar system theme will be exploited to give birth to compositions continuously oscillating between dream-pop, trip-hop and darkfolk. When Marc, producer and sound designer of genius, joined them at the end of 2015, the band is ready to record his first album.

But with the addition of a third member, the ideas expand so much that the concept album originally
envisaged is divided into two distinct parts, which will be released separately at a distance of one year.

For fans of Chelsea Wolfe, Mogwai, Portishead, Massive Attack

A few days after unveilling a first audio excerpt witht he song “Shield Wall”, French ‘mountain’ stoner-metallers General Cluster just officially released their debut full-length effort called ‘Greetings From Black Mountains’ and available right now for physical and digital.

…For the record…

After two EPs that had made the powder speak and the hoppy moss blossomed, General Cluster is back with its first full-length album called ‘Greetings from the Black Mountain’.

During 10 years, the band has drawn its path forging a rock-solid reputation on the stage; sharing his stoner/southern/blues metal to assert a sound at the crossroads of different incarnations of the music from the devil. 10 years in the band’s life and the growing desire to share at each concert a moment of communion and energy with the audience.

10 years summarized in 8 titles as so many memories frozen in the ice. That energy of the band which slams in the face with the force of a cold storm of early winter, leaving the breath short and the sight troubled. Prepare yourself for the blizzard from the Black Mountain, General Cluster is coming!
