Hot News – Neurosis: Classic Sovereign EP To See Official Neurot Recordings Reissue Including Previously Unreleased Bonus Track

2011. Júl 8, 14:09 :

For the last 26 years, NEUROSIS have tapped into the elusive wellspring where resonance and dissonance collude, circling emotional poles where nothing is withheld, where the psyche screams for answers to Earth's ancient mysteries.

Following the recent reissues of some of NEUROSIS' most seminal groundbreaking earlier albums -- Souls At Zero and Enemy Of The Sun -- Neurot Recordings are now prepared to unveil the details on the next installment of this reissue series, with a new pressing of the band's infamous Sovereign EP. Originally unveiled in 2000, the Sovereign EP was the first NEUROSIS release issued through the band's own then newly-founded Neurot Recordings, with the vinyl pressing handled by Hydra Head. In chronological terms, Sovereign served as a millennial segue between two of the band's two revered full-lengths of that era; 1999's Times Of Grace and 2001's A Sun That Never Sets.

The EP, though shorter than a NEUROSIS full-length opus, is a psychotropic experience of the highest order. And to top that off, this Neurot Recordings CD reissue also includes a previously unreleased fifth track, with the inescapably feedback-tormented hymn "Misgiven" closing out the reissue, added as a special bonus to this repressing of the recordings. The reissue comes bound in an O-Card/jewel case setup like the other recent NEUROSIS reissues, with artwork completely redesigned and updated by Aaron Turner.

Hegy’ végső visszaszámlálás

2011. Júl 7, 15:40 :

Kilenc nap múlva Heaven Shall Burn és Ladytron. Nyolc nap múlva Slayer és Guano Apes. Hét nap múlva Mastodon és Ektomorf. Hat nap múlva Scooter, Airbourne és Parkway Drive. Bérletek még négy napig elővételben. Mindjárt kezdődik. Szállás megvan, sátor bekészítve? Felkészültetek? Segítünk.

Az igazán masszív fesztiválarcok már a hétvégén nekiindulnak, hogy meghódítsák Tokajt és alaposan rákészüljenek a Hegyaljára. Akár közéjük tartozol, akár csak jövő héten csatlakozol hozzájuk, pár dologról feltétlenül győződj meg. Például:
Van szállásod?
Ha nincs, vasárnapig még megveheted elővételben, egy nagykoncert áráért. A vásárláshoz katt ide, vagy nézd meg, hol van a hozzád legközelebb eső jegyvásárló hely, de mobilon is elintézheted a vásárlást. Ha van üdülési csekked, ne felejtsd otthon, hiszen azzal is megveheted a belépőd.

Hot News – Sourvein: Kick Off U.S. Tour

2011. Júl 7, 9:42 :

"We are beyond ready to blast the masses!"

North Carolina sludge saviors, SOURVEIN, today kick off a near three-week U.S. tour at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia with Jucifer. Touring in support of their latest work of doom awesomeness, Black Fangs, the band will meticulously deafen 16 more cities before finishing up at Ground Zero in Spartanburg on July 23.

Commented SOURVEIN ringleader T-Roy from the van: "We are beyond ready to blast the masses with Black Fangs and are looking forward to hooking up with Nachtmystium for a few gigs. It's gonna be an epic pairing! This begin the first part of a six-part world tour! We mean business."

Released on June 21 via Candlelight Records, Black Fangs features ten bottom-heavy, feedback-drenched, odes of heavy. Said Decibel Magazine: "These riffs are so filthy and dirty, it's like being held facedown in mud." Added Cvlt Nation: "With killer riffs, grooves and just enough experimental appeal to keep it interesting, this is an essential purchase for 2011." Noted Hellbound: "This is how sludge metal is supposed to sound!"
