Stoned Monkey Sign to Argonauta Records for Debut Album

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 19th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

As habit dictates, I was scouring the internet for some media to include with this post about Italy’s Stoned Monkey signing to countryman imprint Argonauta Records for the CD and tape release of their forthcoming debut album. I managed to find a clip on their YouTube page that’s 57 seconds long and pretty much just a riff. One riff. A minute of riff. And you know what? I feel like I get it. I get why Argonauta picked them up. All it took was one riff.

Bongripper would seem to be a reference point for the instrumental three-piece, what with the largesse of that lone riff and all, but I won’t claim to speak for their sound as I’ve heard basically nothing. Still, that was a sick riff, as in, “Sick riffs, bro,” which is what you’d probably say to the guitarist right after they got off stage.

In my case, it’s “sick riff, bro.” Singular. Fair enough.

Info from the PR wire:

Sludge rockers STONED MONKEY ink worldwide deal with ARGONAUTA RECORDS!

Born in Varese, Italy, in 2017, Sludge ‘n Doom Noise rockers STONED MONKEY have signed a worldwide record deal with Argonauta Records! Mesmerizing atmospheres, high pitched amplifiers, heavy soundwalls and a strong scent of the weed distinguish the experience on a STONED MONKEY trip: An unmistakable Sludge timbre mixed with the rhythmic-sonorous intensity by influences such as Doom and noisy Stoner Rock.

Says Argoanuta Records owner Gero Lucisano: “Once I’ve heard the very first notes of these guys, I’ve been totally levelled by their massive approach. Back in the days I received some rough mixes and I have been surprised how an instrumental band can generate a so huge wall of sound. I heard echoes of Bongripper and Sleep, though in a more dynamic way yet a lot hypnotic and abrasive”.

While the band is currently working on their upcoming debut, followed by an extensive touring schedule, STONED MONKEY are excited to have signed with Argonauta:

“As fans of the genre, we are proud to sign with such an important label in the sludge/doom scene and we are glad to release out debut with them soon. This record will be the fruits of a lot of hard work, commitment and dedication, and let’s not forget about the neurons we burnt on every single track. We are ready to share our concept of music with the whole world soon!“

Mangog Release The Ghost in the Room EP

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 18th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

mangog

With Maryland Doom Fest kicking off later this week, it is a fitting time to celebrate the region’s heavy output. Baltimorean four-piece Mangog won’t play in Frederick this year, but they’ve got a brand new two-songer called The Ghost in the Room out well in time for the occasion just the same. They would seem to have parted ways with masked drummer Dao Yu since the recording of the EP — we never did find out why he wore the mask, so let’s just assume it was because he was secretly WJZ Baltimore meteorologist Bob Turk in disguise and didn’t want anyone at CBS to know he’s super into heavy riffs. Fair. It would probably cost him his job.

The new guy is Russell Hayward III, and he’ll have to wait until the next outing to make his debut with the band, but I hear there’s a second album in the works. I wouldn’t be surprised if these tracks are on it in some form or other.

The PR wire has it like this:

mangog the ghost in the room

Baltimore doom unit MANGOG releases brand new EP; Out now on Argonauta Records!

Doom metal heavyweights MANGOG have announced the surprising release of a brand new EP titled The Ghost in the Room, which is out now on Argonauta Records!

MANGOG is a doom metal band based out of Baltimore, Maryland, formed by bassist Bert Hall Jr. (Revelation, Against Nature, Beelzefuzz ), assuming guitar duties, drummer Stephen Branagan (Revelation, Against Nature, and Yet So Far), Major Company bassist Darby Cox, and Final Answer vocalist Myke Wells. In early 2015 the band released the Daydreams Within Nightmares EP during their debut performance at the Maryland Doomfest. One year later, MANGOG completed its first and critically acclaimed full length album, Mangog Awakens, released with Argonauta Records in 2017.

The Ghost in the Room continues the band’s work and sets high anticipation for their sophomore album, MANGOG are currently working on. Their brand new, 2-track EP is now available for streaming and download HERE!

“We are stoked to give everyone a taste of some of the music we’ve been working on through our partnership with Argonauta Records!” MANGOG comments. “The Ghost in the Room has been a staple of Mangog set lists since shortly after the release of the “Awakens” album, with the track “Hubris” being written much more recently.

The road to getting out new music has been an epic one, paved with hospitalizations, birth, death, setbacks, frustration and lineup changes. These recordings feature former member Dao Yu on drums, who worked with the band between September 2017 and October 2018.

We recently also begun to perform acoustic versions of some of our new and old songs, and will have a video for “Ghost in the Room” about to enter the post production, so better watch out for many more great news to come soon!”

Tracklisting:
1. The Ghost in the Room 06:53
2. Hubris 04:01

Myke Wells – Vocals
Bert Hall, Jr. – Guitars, vocals, devices
Darby Cox – Basses

BBF Sign to Argonauta Records; New Album Outside the Noise Later This Year

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 6th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

Taking their moniker from the surname initials of each of their three members, BBF will debut on Argonauta Records sometime later this year with their second album, Outside the Noise. As to what sort of funky-heavy-whatnottery might ensue, I don’t know. I’m not even sure if the thing is recorded yet, but the stated aim of “help bodies and minds develop a greater sense of awareness and connection,” as per the PR wire, sounds pretty ambitious. Like, isn’t that what yoga is supposed to do?

Nothing against yoga either, mind you, and I imagine Outside the Noise will provide a decent core workout as well for those who dig in.

Here’s the announcement about picking up the band from Argonauta:

bbf

Stoner rock funkers BBF sign worldwide deal with Argonauta Records!

Straight out of the Alps of Northern Italy, stoner, psychedelic and acid funk power trio BBF has announced the worldwide signing with Argonauta Records, who will release the band’s second studio album during 2019!

BBF were formed in 2016 from a collaboration between the minds of Pietro Brunetti, Claudio Banelli and Carlo Forgiarini, who all share a deep-rooted passion for the sound of the 60s, 70s and everything that springs out of its creative sound and the world of rock. After the release of BBF’s first studio LP Beside Everything We Need 70s, the band went through a period of great introspection, which helped them to become much more aware of their possibilities as musicians; new songs came to life, with a new and much more sophisticated and mature sound. In November 2018, the trio barricaded themselves in the studio to record their second album Outside the Noise, a psychedelic conceptual LP that wishes to help bodies and minds develop a greater sense of awareness and connection. This album will be part of Argonauta Records’ 2019 eclectic catalogue.

“We are thrilled about having signed with Argonauta Records.“ the band comments. “We hope that our album may have a great impact on our audiences, and that it may help us to carry out our message in a powerful way.”

Watch out for many more news, details and album tunes to follow in the days ahead!

BBF is:
Pietro Brunetti (Electric bass, synth, vocals)
ClaudioBanelli (Electric and acoustic guitar, vocals)
Carlo Forgiarini (Drums and percussions)

High Fighter Set July 26 Release for Champain; New Song Streaming

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 20th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

high fighter

Fresh off an appearance at Desertfest and ahead of a stop at this summer’s Freak Valley and SonicBlast Moledo festivals, as well as other locales, German aggro-heavies High Fighter have unveiled “Before I Disappear,” the opening track of their impending second album and first for Argonauta Records, Champain. The follow-up to their 2016 debut, Scars and Crosses (review here), immediately revives and pushes ahead through that album’s atmospheric darkness, and with the scream of vocalist Mona Miluski out front during the verses, the harsh spirit of the preceding LP is maintained at the same time a broader melodic reach is signaled via the chorus. They reside at the intersection where heavy meets metal, and seem to have no problem playing to either side of that equation. I’ll look forward to hearing more.

The PR wire brought art, info and audio:

high fighter champain

HIGH FIGHTER unleash release details + first track from upcoming album; due out this July on Argonauta Records!

Hamburg-based Sludge Metal unit HIGH FIGHTER returns with their sophomore, brand new album this summer on Argonauta Records. Today the band is sharing with us not only the hotly anticipated release details, but also a first single taken from their upcoming record titled Champain!

After the group’s debut EP The Goat Ritual released end of 2014, followed by numerous shows all over Europe & the UK, including festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, Desertfest Berlin, London and Antwerp, SonicBlast Moledo, Stoned From The Underground, Up In Smoke, Keep It Low, Red Smoke Festival and many more, as well as countless gigs on tour with bands alike Ahab, Conan, Elder, Downfall of Gaia, Crowbar, Mantar, Corrosion of Conformity, Mammoth Storm, Brant Bjork, The Midnight Ghost Train and Earth Ship to name just a few, HIGH FIGHTER released their first full-length and critically acclaimed album Scars & Crosses in June 2016 on Svart Records. The band’s second studio album, Champain, is set for a release on July 26th 2019 with powerhouse label Argonauta Records.

It seems life on the road has impacted HIGH FIGHTER in a huge way. As their new album has a heavier and fast-paced sound compared to their first records. The best way to describe HIGH FIGHTER in 2019 is PISSED OFF! This is a different band that announced their arrival in 2014 with their debut EP followed by Scars & Crosses. Champain isn’t for the faint hearted and the band may actually surprise a lot of their established fanbase with this album.

“We finally present you the cover art and details for our second album, we have named Champain. This album tells an anti-hero story, and we have probably never sounded that focussed and brutal on a record before.” Vocalist Mona Miluski explains. “Champain has been recorded, mixed and mastered by our dear friend Jan Oberg at Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin, and the clear, classy but epic album artwork has been designed by the talented Johnny Doe. This record is definitely not Scars & Crosses part 2, we tried to evolve our sound to a new level and this time, introducing the even more heavier side of High Fighter.”

Opening songs such as Before I Disappear, Shine Equal Dark and Dead Gift, create an eerie and gloomy atmosphere where the mood can be pitch-black in places. The soaring and brutal riffs on this album allow Mona to show her impressive vocal range, from Death Metal growls, mean screams to her Stoner Rock, Soul and Blues roots.

Champain – Tracklisting:
1. Before I Disappear
2. Shine Equal Dark
3. Interlight
4. Dead Gift
5. Another Cure
6. Kozel
7. I Will Not
8. Interdark
9. When We Suffer ( feat. Anton Lisovoj of Downfall of Gaia )
10. A Shrine
11. Champain

Champain will be coming out July 26th in CD, Vinyl and Digital formats, with a pre-order and many more news to follow soon.

HIGH FIGHTER live:
14.06.19 DE – Hannover / Café Glocksee, w/ Monolord
22.06.19 DE – Freak Valley Festival
03.08.19 DE – Gössnitz Open Air
08.-10.08.19 PT – SonicBlast Moledo
18.10.19 DE – Metal Inferno Paderborn
+ many more shows to be announced soon

HIGH FIGHTER is:
Mona Miluski – vocals
Christian Pappas – guitar
Ingwer Boysen – guitar
Constantin Wüst – bass
Thomas Wildelau – drums & backing vocals

Rancho Bizzarro to Release Possessed by Rancho EP Aug. 2

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 15th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

rancho bizzarro

Italian desert-style heavy rockers Rancho Bizzarro — that’s two ‘z’s and two ‘r’s, just so you know; I’ve had it wrong before — will release a new EP titled Possessed by Rancho on Aug. 2 through Argonauta Records. The same countryman imprint issued the band’s debut album last year and has had them on its Argonauta Fest as well, so certainly familiar terrain, but the instrumentalist four-piece are still giving a tease of what the new release portends in streaming “Open Bar Deluxe,” the 7:55 opening track, which is nothing short of a fuzzy delight sure to earn approving nods from the converted. I have to think “Open Bar Deluxe” will be among the longer cuts on Possessed by Rancho, if only for the simple fact that if it’s five songs and they’re all upwards of eight minutes long, well, that’s an album, not an EP. I guess we’ll see when we get there.

Info (and tour dates) from the PR wire:

RANCHO-BIZZARRO-POSSESSED-BY-RANCHO-COVER-710x710

Following the band’s self-titled 2017 debut album and their critically acclaimed MONDO RANCHO EP (2018), the upcoming ‘Possessed By Rancho’ EP will deliver a new trip of a sound between motorcycles, vans, women and bars:

The tracklist reads as follows:
1. Open Bar Deluxe
2. King of the Van
3. El Motardo Loco
4. The Vengeance of Lord Humungus
5. Giusquiamo Slow Drink

Ancient VVisdom Announce New Album Mundus Due This Fall; “Human Extinction” Video Posted

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 14th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

Ohio cultists Ancient VVisdom were holed up earlier this year in Mercinary Studios putting together what will be their follow-up to 2017’s 33, which was their label debut on Argonauta Records that also saw release through DHU Records and Magic Bullet Records. In the two years since, AVV frontman Nathan Opposition has made a go of it alongside Dan Lorenzo of Hades in the band Vessel of Light, and that also-righteous cause taken up a bit of time that otherwise might’ve gone toward Ancient VVisdom‘s dark and disturbing psychedelic mindfuckery, but the announcement that the band will return with a new album through Argonauta bodes well (bodes grim?) as a sign of things to come.

The album is called Mundus, and they’ve got a new video for the track “Human Extinction.” The album is due out in Fall, and the announcement of it is fresh off the PR wire:

ancient vvisdom

ANCIENT VVISDOM return with brand new album this Fall on Argonauta Records; + premiere first single ‘Human Extinction’!

A dark, enlightening foresight into the future of humankind dictated by singer/songwriter Nathan Opposition. Ancient VVisdom was founded in Austin, TX in late 2009 with the order consisting of Nathan Opposition (ex-integrity drummer 2005-2010), Justin “Ribs” Mason (iron age bassist) on second acoustic guitar, and Nathan’s brother, Michael Jochum (ex-integrity guitarist 2003-2010) on electric guitar. This Fall, Ancient VVisdom will finally return with a brand new album on Argonauta Records!

To shorten your wait, the band is already sharing with us a first track, Human Extinction. Just exclusively premiered on Revolver Magazine, you can now watch Ancient VVisdom brand new video HERE!

Band mastermind Nathan Opposition comments: “Our new album is titled Mundus. We put our heart and soul into this. This album speaks volumes both sonically and philosophically.

Engineered by Noah Buchanan, mastered by Arthur Rizk, artwork by Karmazid and music by Ancient VVisdom, we had quite the amazing team of talented individuals who helped shape what is now our favorite AVV album to date! Thank you all very much for your help.

The world we live in is so fucked up and there is so much to write about, its sad for me to see how many artist these days have the amps and the platform but nothing to say. The lyrics on Mundus have something very powerful to say. The music, the message, the vision and the voice. I hope in years to come the music community can come together, be enlightened, and take a stance against the hypocrisy, the bigotry, the hate, the injustices of our modern society. We all have a voice now lets band together and use it to change the world. Extinction is the rule, survival is the exception.“

Destroyer of Light Premiere “Burning Darkness” from Mors Aeterna out May 24

Posted in audiObelisk, Reviews on May 8th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

destroyer of light

The grim magic of lurking tradtional doom has been with Destroyer of Light all along, but the Austin, Texas, four-piece have never brought it to bear with the poise, presence or level of accomplishment they do on Mors Aeterna. Their third full-length out May 24 as their debut for Argonauta Records follows behind 2018’s Hopeless EP (review here) and 2017’s Chamber of Horrors (review here), both of which seemed to paint the band’s shifting focus in real-time. Their earlier work on 2014’s Bizarre Tales Vol. 2 EP or their 2012 self-titled debut was more in a burly heavy rock vein, but it was the Endsville split/collaboration with Godhunter (discussed here) in 2015 that really began to mark their turn to darker, more sinister, doomly fare.

Mors Aeterna — which brings forth 10 tracks in a relatively concise 44 minutes peppered with interludes throughout like the intro “Overture Putrefactio,” the keyboard-laced “The Unknown,” the piano-led “Pralaya’s Hymn” and the penultimate foreboding of “Into the Abyss” that launches directly into the megacrash of semi-title-track closer “Eternal Death” —  is unquestionably Destroyer of Light‘s crowning achievement to-date. It presents their sound as a work of directed vision while proffering memorable stretches from the emotional strains of “Dissolution” onwards, but neither casts its lot entirely with classic doom nor the post-Pallbearer modern sphere. As they’ve done throughout their career, Destroyer of Light reside in a place between, and it’s a place that sounds more theirs than it ever has before.

Intro, two songs, interlude, two songs, interlude, one song, intro, one song. Parsed out, it’s easy enough to see where the band — guitarist/vocalist Steve Colca, guitarist/synthesist Keegan Kjeldsen, bassist Nick Coffman and drummer Penny Turner — wanted to break things up to keep a given listener on their toes, but such structuring does little to convey the intricacy of Destroyer of Light‘s doom and how they blend atmospherics and nodder progressions in order to get where they do. The Candlemassian stretch of “Afterlife” or the bass-heavy chug-and-swing of “Falling Star” and the play off a spacier influence in “Loving the Void,” bringing psychedelia and doom together in such a fashion as to be beholden to neither so much as its own purpose — these moments go beyond the simple shape of the album and speak to the breadth that Destroyer of Light stake out across the album’s entirety.

destroyer of light mors aeternaThey are heavy, yes. They are dark, yes. But if you think there can’t be detail as well to that, then a cut like “Burning Darkness,” with its rumbling low end foundation beneath the vocal melody and its consuming march to a destructive finish is simply going to be lost on you, let alone how the “heavier” songs interact with the interludes so clearly meant to and so effective at increasing the scope of Mors Aeterna overall. It is a record of bleak soulfulness and sincere exploration; the product of a commitment to creative growth that has shown itself across Destroyer of Light‘s discography. It feels very much like an arrival point.

And so it should, given that it’s their third record and they’ve put in some significant time on tour leading up to it — they’ll keep that thread going in Europe starting this weekend — but even more than that, Mors Aeterna seems to be working from a full-album conception. This also ties at least partially into the interludes and focus on mood and atmosphere, and it continues right up to the violin and piano that cap “Eternal Death” in a mirror to “Overture Putrefactio” at the outset. The interludes tie together the various movements of Mors Aeterna and help bolster the depth of even the most straightforward of its songs, feeding into an overarching flow that begins as “Dissolution” takes hold with its initial roll and continues through the relatively and somewhat ironically quick fadeout of “Eternal Death.”

All throughout, Destroyer of Light bask in a doom that cast in their image and spirited not by adherence to the tropes of genre, but by reshaping them to suit the needs of the songs. Destroyer of Light are a much different band now than when they started out some seven years ago, but the style they’ve embraced is something hitting its moment of realization and that — most importantly — shows no signs of stopping here. There’s nothing throughout Mors Aeterna to make one think Destroyer of Light have landed here and this is it. Rather, the quality of the songwriting and the sureheadedness with which they approach such outwardly bleak sonic terrain gives the impression only of further plunge to be had as they move forward. Still, this is an important step for the band and a convincing argument in favor of there being life after traditional doom.

It’s my pleasure today to host the premiere of “Burning Darkness.” Please find it below, followed by some comment from the band and their European tour dates.

Enjoy:

Destroyer of Light, “Burning Darkness” official track premiere

Destroyer of Light on “Burning Darkness”:

“Burning Darkness” is about this man traveling through the underworld, trying to figure out where he is heading. It is dark, it is really hot, and then he realizes that he has transcended into hell. This was a fun song to write because it is super melodic, but then really heavy. I wanted to add a “black metal” section to signify that he is hell and it is horrible! Lots of dynamics and influences showed in this song.

We are excited for our first European tour. We’ve been working really hard to get over there and for us to finally be here feels really good. Hard to believe we are, it’ll be awesome to have the new album with us too. Y’all will get the first chance in person! Hope to see you out there!

Set for a release on May 24th with Argonauta Records, Mors Aeterna will be available as CD, LP and Digital formats at: www.argonautarecords.com

Suma May Tour Starts This Week

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 6th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

suma

As it happens, I’m in a coffee shop putting this post together. It’s Sunday afternoon — earlier than it feels — and at the next table is a just-post-middle-aged guy telling his lady all about someone who after years of irresponsibility has finally started listening to their doctor. The woman, so it goes, is barely feigning interest. It could hardly be a better time to jack up my headphones with some Suma and absolutely exit Planet Earth in favor of whatever destructive alternate realm the Swedish four-piece occupy. Has it really been three years already since their last record? The hell kind of sense does that make?

Of course, the simple fact that they’re touring now and that they’ve been announced for Høstsabbat in Oslo this October makes me wonder if perhaps they’ve got another LP coming, but that’s rampant speculation and as fun as it is to indulge such things, I think I’ll hold off. Not like the last record’s impact has worn off. Shit is crushing like climate studies.

And see? That loud-talking goober and his companion have left. Suma fixes everything.

They’re gonna be in Berlin and then seemingly headed east and north from there if my minimal understanding of geography is anything to go by (it isn’t), but wherever they’re headed, they’re a band you should see if they’re in your path or likewise. I consider it a blight on my record that I’ve never caught them live, and that’s something I’m looking forward to correcting this Fall.

They posted the tour dates thusly:
