Texas sludge rock outfit Red Beard Wall will release their second album, The Fight Needs Us All, early next year through Argonauta Records. The one-man-in-the-studio/live-two-piece released their self-titled debut last year through Argonauta and would seem to be getting a push for the follow-up, which will be issued on CD and LP both, each with different covers — left and right below, respectively. As to what the album will hold, Argonauta promises tight songwriting and weighted tone, and after the first record I have no trouble believing it, since that album seemed so much to be about Red Beard Wall establishing sonic parameters from which to build outward. I guess we’ll see Feb. 22 how the next stage in that process plays out.

Here’s the label’s announcement:

RED BEARD WALL announce brand new album

Hot and fresh on the heels of his 2017 critically lauded and extremely well received blistering slab of a debut, the one man cacophony of heavy RED BEARD WALL is back!

The bearded wonder of sludge returns with his highly anticipated sophomore beast of an album titled ‘The Fight Needs Us All’, set to be released on February 22th 2019 with Italy’s rising label Argonauta Records!

Red Beard Wall was born in 2016 on the dry, wind swept plains of West Texas, out of a desire to channel his angst and frustration with the insane reality that surrounds us. With a hyper focus on heavy, hooky and to the point songs, RED BEARD WALL delivers riffs with devastatingly heavy tones, vocals melodies that soar, alongside blistering screams of disillusionment. Creatively it’s all the bearded one and only, Aaron Wall, with the mighty George Trujillo on drums rounding out the live beast that is RED BEARD WALL. Influenced by the sounds of such as Floor, Helmet, Torche, Cavity or Nirvana among countless others, RED BEARD WALL has now unleashed the tracklist and album artwork for his upcoming second album ‘The Fight Needs Us All’! Coming as Digital Download, CD and Vinyl formats, the album pre-order will start soon.

The tracklist will read as follows:

1. Come on Down
2. To My Queen
3. Ode to Green
4. Reverend
5. The Warming
6. Reign of Ignorance
7. Tell Me the Future of Existence
8. The Fight Needs Us All

Says the RED BEARD WALL’s Aaron: “The Fight Needs Us All is everything Red Beard Wall. It is heavy, dense, fire flashing. It is heart, soul, love, and passion. It is anger, joy, sadness, exhilaration. It encompasses war, peace, and social degradation. It is the proudest artistic moment in my life, thus far. ALL HAIL!“

Stay tuned for many more bearded news & updates to follow soon!

Review & Video Premiere: Wasted Theory, Warlords of the New Electric

Posted in Bootleg Theater, Reviews on October 4th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

WASTED THEORY WARLORDS OF THE NEW ELECTRIC

Wasted Theory, ‘Rawhide Hellride’ official video premiere

[Click play above to stream the premiere of Wasted Theory’s new video for ‘Rawhide Hellride.’ Their new album, Warlords of the New Electric, is out Oct. 26 on Argonauta Records.]

Wasted Theory have a thing for titles. Their third record, Warlords of the New Electric, is their second for Argonauta Records behind last year’s reissue of 2016’s Defenders of the Riff (review here), and both albums set lofty ambitions as regards positioning the band. This is interesting to note, because their songwriting could hardly be more grounded. Based out of Delaware, the Southern heavy riff rockers have brandished straightforward, ultra-dudely chug and groove since even before the release of their 2014 debut, Death and Taxes (review here), and done so proudly. It’s worked for them, and it continues to work for them as they push their sound forward on the eight-track/36-minute long-player, which is inarguably their tightest and most professional-sounding collection to-date.

They toured both coasts supporting Defenders of the Riff, so some sonic progression was to be expected, but in teaming with producer/engineer Joseph Boldizar at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia, they’ve found a space for themselves that is both crisp in and full in its tone on Warlords of the New Electric, and as their penchant for titles extends to the songs themselves in “Rawhide Hellride,” “Bongronaut,” “The Son of a Son of a Bitch” and nearly every other inclusion — you can keep “Doomslut Rodeo,” which feels willfully blind both to the cultural moment we’re living in and general decency to others; you’re not 12, grow up — and familiar homage is paid to whiskey, weed and Black Sabbath, there’s no lack either of live energy in the material. Indeed, Warlords of the New Electric itself feels both born of touring in terms of its craft on shorter, stage-ready cuts like “Rawhide Hellride,” “Heavy Bite” and “Drug Buzzard,” and in some nomadic implication of the name they’ve given it, which, whatever else it may be hardly feels like happenstance. They clearly put some thought into these things.

Comprised here of guitarist/vocalist Larry Jackson, Jr., guitarist Andrew Petkovic, bassist Rob Michael (since out of the band) and drummer Brendan Burns, Wasted Theory work quickly to demonstrate how far they’ve come in two years with a sound less outwardly about burl than the groove itself. Burns is right at home on his hi-hat in “Drug Buzzard” following the opening “Rawhide Hellride,” and as Jackson belts out lines like “Heavy metal heavy drinkin'” in the second track, even his guttural delivery seems to have taken on more character than it’s had in the past, and as they move into “Bongronaut” and “The Son of a Son of a Bitch,” and especially “Bastard County,” he reminds here and there of Earthride‘s Dave Sherman, who over time has also been able to make a rough-throated, “whiskey-soaked” vocal style his own.

wasted theory

Petkovic, who’s new to the lineup as of this record, provides standout work on guitar in “Bongronaut” and the later “Weed Creature” particularly, adding a sense of spaciousness to the songs that is welcome alongside Wasted Theory‘s signature crunch, which itself makes a highlight of “The Son of a Son of a Bitch” at the end of side A, with a post-Pepper Keenan central riff brought to bear with fervent push from Burns and a righteous slowdown of an apex. Still under four minutes long, “The Son of a Son of a Bitch” is emblematic of nearly everything that works so well on Warlords of the New Electric, and alongside the rolling “Bastard County,” it’s a subtle dynamic at play as the band looses memorable hooks and weighted vibes, Boldizar (who’s worked with The Age of TruthRuby the Hatchet and others in the Philly heavy underground) complements their work excellently with a full mix that allows some Geezer-style effects to make their way into “Bastard County”‘s second half and still sound natural doing so. The speedier fare on “Heavy Bite” only furthers the impression of Wasted Theory‘s overarching progression, tapping into more angular, semi-metal riffing as the drums gallop crisply behind. For all their grit and dirt-rocking mindset, they sound awfully clean in these songs.

And it works because that doesn’t seem contrary at all to their mission. Cuts like “Heavy Bite,” “Drug Buzzard,” “The Son of a Son of a Bitch” and the harder-push of “Weed Creature,” which touches on latter-day Orange Goblin fist-pumpery in its verses, feel like they were written with the intent of kicking ass on stage, but the momentum translates to the recording as well. “Weed Creature” just about splits in half from its raging front end to a more nodding finish — take your pick on the leads; they’re both gems — and as Jackson‘s vocals emanate from deeper in the mix as growls in the latter part of the track, it underscores the point of how comfortable Wasted Theory are expanding not just their aesthetic, but the reaches their mix occupies. I don’t know if Petkovic is the difference-maker on guitar or if it’s a general evolution of their style, but the balance between earthy rhythm and that airier lead tone help establish Warlords of the New Electric as moving toward the goal it has laid out even more than Defenders of the Riff made a show of its straight-ahead attack.

They finish with the aforementioned “Doomslut Rodeo” on a riff that channels Goatsnake taking on “Hole in the Sky” with a slowdown on drums in the bridge that mirrors “The Son of a Son of a Bitch” and a last chorus to remind that it’s the songcraft where they’ve most progressed over time, and while I’ll gladly argue they still have some kinks to work out of their titles — doesn’t have to be “safe,” but there’s a difference between edgy and hateful — they meet the task before them on Warlords of the New Electric with a vitality that indeed speaks of the album’s own triumphs, of which there are many. Though lineup changes invariably mean Wasted Theory are more likely to have a shifted dynamic their next time out, that they’ve been able to capture the band as it is here is worth preserving and provides a high water mark for their boozy flood of heaviness. They’ve only ever moved forward. They keep moving forward.

Dun Ringill Sign to Argonauta Records; Debut Album Welcome Due in 2019

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 27th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Adding to the ever-expanding roster of Argonauta Records is the Swedish troupe Dun Ringill, which boasts in its six-piece ranks members of The Order of Israfel and Silverhorse, among a slew of others. Music is pretty sparse at this point — that is, no demos or anything like that — but there’s a studio snippet they posted on Thee Facebooks you can see below and that sounds plenty doomy. The band take their name either from the Jethro Tull song or the Iron Age fort on the Isle of Skye that inspired it, and either way, the promise of Scandinavian folk with some pro-shop doom sounds pretty right on to me. Their debut album, Welcome, is set for release early in 2019, and I’ll hope to have more to come before then.

The PR wire gives the announcement like this:

DUN RINGILL

DUN RINGILL SIGN TO ARGONAUTA RECORDS!

Feat. members of THE ORDER OF ISRAFEL, DOOMDOGS, LOTUS, SILVERHORSE & many more!

Debut album ‘Welcome’ coming in early 2019!

When The Order of Israfel took a one year break from September 2017, the rhythm section Patrik Andersson Winberg (Bass) and drummer Hans Lilja (also in Lotus), grabbed the chance to create new music again together with Patrik’s old band mate from the Doomdogs era, Tomas Eriksson (Intoxicate and ex Grotesque).

Of what started as a dark and doomy project with Nordic folk influences, creating music with big harmonies and present them with lyrics in the land of evil and darkness that were hiding behind a closed door in the mind of Winberg, became something bigger and your new favorite Swedish Heavy Doom Rock band was born: Welcome DUN RINGILL, who just signed a worldwide deal with Italy’s rising label Argonauta Records!

Says the band: „We in Dun Ringill are super stoked to strike this deal with Argonauta Records! We do believe that Argonauta is the new Black for the doom and hard rock scene and that together with us as a band we will create magic and reach beyond our wildest dreams. Welcome to the land of Dun Ringill!“

To be able to make this project as great as possible the band teamed up with some of the best musicians the Gothenburg scene has to offer: Tommy Stegemann, Guitar (Silverhorse), Jens Florén, Guitar (also in Lommi & ex live guitarist for Dark Tranquillity), as well as Patric Grammann (SFT, Neon Leon) on guitar, a master of melancholy melodies and harmonies.

DUN RINGILL just finished to record their debut album with mastermind Julien Fabré as sound engineer and co-producer together with the band. Titled ‘Welcome’, the band is set for an album release in early 2019 with Argonauta Records. The soon to be unveiled album artwork has been created by Niklas Sundin (Dark Tranquility). ‘Welcome’ will also feature songs with guest musicians such as Per Wiberg of Candlemass, Kamchatka and formerly Opeth.

Stay tuned for many more news, live dates & album details coming soon!

Lumbar to Reissue The First and Last Days of Unwelcome on Argonauta Records

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 26th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

lumbar

It’s been five years since Lumbar released The First and Last Days of Unwelcome (review here) on Southern Lord, and that time doesn’t seem to have dulled its impact whatsoever. Reeling from his MS diagnosis the year prior, prolific guitarist Aaron D.C. Edge composed the seven-track album on his laptop and got together with YOB‘s Mike Scheidt and the one and only Tad Doyle to complete it vocally — the band discussed the process here — and The First and Last Days of Unwelcome was an excruciatingly heavy chronicling of Edge‘s mindset, aurally punishing and oppressive in such a way as to put zero distance between the listener and the experience being conveyed. It was and remains a powerful, affecting listen.

Argonauta Records, which has worked with Edge already this year on Bible Black Tyrant, will reissue Lumbar‘s first and only offering on LP and CD Jan. 11, with tapes on Anima Recordings.

The PR wire brings the details:

lumbar the first and last days of unwelcome

LUMBAR TO RE-RELEASE CULT ALBUM WITH ARGONAUTA RECORDS!

Feat. Aaron Edge, Yob’s Mike Scheidt and Tad Doyle!

‘The First and Last Days of Unwelcome’ to be re-released on January 11th 2019!

It’s been a tragedy for the world of metal, when the remarkable debut album ‘The First and Last Days of Unwelcome’ has been likely proved to be the first and last work of Lumbar. The trio of metal veterans Aaron Edge (Ramprasad / Bible Black Tyrant / Rote Hexe / Iamthethorn / Roareth / Phemüt), Yob’s Mike Scheidt and Tad Doyle (Brothers of the Sonic Cloth / TAD) released their highly acclaimed debut album back in 2013, when the life of band mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Edge has already changed forever.

Lumbar is Edge’s unique collaboration with the two vocalists — Yob’s Mike Scheidt and Tad Doyle. Edge wrote and recorded the music and penned the lyrics, during one long weekend in Seattle, and they added their voices. At this point, Edge had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

“It’s been five years since I wrote and recorded the Lumbar endeavor (in GarageBand, no less) and that time really did pass quickly.” Edge explains. “It has also been six years since my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis, but that time has gone by much too slowly. The pain has not ceased, nor the frustration, and certainly not the fear. But, there are some positive things to focus on: my meds are now dulling some of the nerve trouble, I’m able to play music regularly again, and two labels share my excitement in the re-release of “The First and Last Days of Unwelcome” as hand-numbered 12″ vinyl on Argonauta Records and hand-numbered cassettes on Anima Recordings.

The five year agreement and music license that was held between myself and Greg Anderson, of Southern Lord, ended this month, releasing the control of the recording back into my hands. I’d like to thank Greg, for his belief in the vision and importance of Lumbar for me. He has always shown true friendship, guidance and support and I won’t forget that.

There is a difference in the first release, back in 2013, and the re-release for January 2019; there was first an urgency and now there is a reminder.

The urgency tore me and my marriage apart, it changed my life forever, the MS diagnosis was (at the time) a bleak future. And, to be honest, I’m not optimistic about how my life with the disease will change and morph as I grow older. But, I’m still here. I made it this far. The urgency of the first release of these seven tracks is now a reminder of change… it is inevitable and uncontrollable. Nature does what nature does, she can not be restrained.

I can not thank enough, then and now, the donation of friendship and talent from both Mike Scheidt and Tad Doyle: there’s only a small handful of people on the planet that I know—that I would feel comfortable having them tell my story—and these guys were at the top of the list. I love you two men.

Thank you to Gero of Argonauta and David of Anima for reminding all of us about creative energy, about storytelling. I do hope you all reading this and listening in appreciate the recording, as heavy and dark in subject matter as it truly is, all over again.”

With seven tracks and a runtime of less than 25 minutes, ‘The First and Last Days of Unwelcome’ is a relentless trek through doom metal featuring Scheidt and Doyle, the screamer and singer, who perfectly round up this epos. On January 11th 2019, Argonauta Records will re-release the cult album on Vinyl by a project that has been truly missed in the heavy music scene.

Coming with a re-designed album artwork, ‘The First and Last Days of Unwelcome’ will be available on CD (for the first time ever) and an exciting color LP edition of 300 hand numbered copies.

Pre-Orders are now available at:
LP: http://smarturl.it/LumbarLP
CD: http://smarturl.it/LumbarCD
Bundles: http://smarturl.it/LumbarBundle

Says Gero Lucisano, CEO of Argonauta Records:
“It’s been a year ago when I’ve been lucky enough to team up with Aaron Edge for his new project Bible Black Tyrant, we released on Argonauta in early 2018. A massive sludge blast I’m totally proud of. With Aaron, a hard working musician, I got the chance to speak about many music endeavours and thanks to his positive and propositive attitude it is a pleasure and a honor to work the official reissue of the legendary LUMBAR album. This is not only an impressive work, emotional and intensive, this beast also features the line-up Mike Scheidt (YOB) and Tad Doyle (of legendary TAD), basically my hero of today’s scene and the hero of my youth. Argonauta Records is stoked to welcome the band and album within its range.”

The track list reads as follows:
Day One
Day Two
Day Three
Day Four
Day Five
Day Six
Day Seven

Nibiru to Headline UK Tour Next Month

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 14th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

nibiru

Even though they wouldn’t let me hang out at the downstairs bar with The Pecan earlier this year, The Black Heart in London is still an excellent place to see a show, and I’d imagine that when Italian ritualistic sludgers Nibiru hit that stage — which is upstairs, far away from anywhere I’d have tried to take the baby, plus it was daytime! — they’ll have no problem filling that room with a wash of sometimes harsh but always immersive noise.

Nibiru will land at The Black Heart as part of a UK tour that also includes stops in Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham, and they’ll be headlining while doing shows with Varego and Surya as well as The Medea Project and Even Vast. They’re also working on a new record, which is only good news for anyone who digs a little psychosis in their psych.

The PR wire has details:

nibiru uk tour poster

NIBIRU announce UK headline tour in October 2018

For the first time in their successful career Italian ritual psychedelic sludgers NIBIRU will tour as headliners in UK in October 2018!

The band will be hitting the road for 4 dates next month. Italian heavy prog outfit VAREGO and London-based doom atmospheric sludge post-metal merchants SURYA have been confirmed as special guests at The Black Heart in London on Thursday October 11th.

Nottingham based gothic death doom trio THE MEDEA PROJECT and UK sludge doomers EVEN VAST will support NIBIRU in Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham.

NIBIRU was born in 2012, following a relentless process of spiritual and emotional knowledge that involves every member of the band and is reflected in a totally free and impetuous creative approach. Since the first album Caosgon, the music of NIBIRU is recognized a unique identity, instinctive and difficult to label in an artistic panorama overloaded by clone bands and lack of originality. These characteristics are further developed in the next records. Netrayoni, Padmalotus and Qaal Babalon got amazing reviews from press worldwide.

The genre proposed by NIBIRU could be described as Ritual Psychedelic Sludge and finds no term of stylistic comparison with other active bands, although the influences of Black Sabbath, Neurosis and MZ.412 have always been pretty clear since their inception until today. The musical journey to the dark star NIBIRU is an experience from which anyone can only come back deeply changed, an evil and visceral representation that sets new rules for genres such as black metal, sludge and drone as we know them.

NIBIRU managed to play several shows with ORANSSI PAZUZU, UADA, MORTIIS, SUMA, NIGHTSTALKER and PHANTOM WINTER. Their performance at Roadburn Festival 2016 was unforgettable! The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their upcoming full-length album.

Make sure to catch the band live on the following UK dates presented by Neecee Agency, Leynir Booking & Fabiola Santini Photography.

Thursday October 11th 2018 – UK – The Black Heart, London (+)
Friday October 12th 2018 – UK – Star and Garter, Manchester (*)
Saturday October 13th 2018 – UK – Hammer and Anvil, Birmingham (*)

Grandier Sign to Argonauta Records; Debut Due in 2019

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 14th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

So, it’s four-thirty in the morning and I’m sitting at my kitchen table putting this post together about Grandier joining the ever-expanding ranks of Italy’s Argonauta Records. Empty iced tea cup on my left, empty coffee cup on my right, baby monitor on mute but in the periphery. I’ll admit I’ve never heard the Swedish trio before, so I plunk over to their Bandcamp to see what’s there, and put on the demo for “Butterfly in Flames.” And sitting here by myself, with early commuters whizzing by on the rain-slicked road outside, I listen to “Butterfly in Flames,” and as soon as the vocals kick in, I say out loud to absolutely nobody, “Nice.”

The power of good music, folks.

Grandier will make their full-length debut through Argonauta in 2019. The PR wire has details and background, and you’ll find “Butterfly in Flames” at the bottom of this post for your streaming pleasure.

Dig:

SWEDISH HEAVY ROCKERS GRANDIER SIGN WITH ARGONAUTA RECORDS!

Heavy rockers Grandier are pleased to announce the collaboration with Argonauta Records for their first full length album, due for a release in 2019! Hailing from Norrköping, Sweden, Grandier was formed when guitarist Patrik teamed up with bassplayer and vocalist Lars (ex Bokor) for songwriting and studio sessions. With the inclusion of drummer Claes Pålsson Grandier moved forward as classic power trio.

True to their roots, Grandier focus on slow and heavy riffs influenced by the classic hard rock and early metal, but also with a massive hint of the doom, psych and stoner rock. Add a dose of grandeur and grunge sounds on the other hand, and Grandier deliver some finest head-crushing rock sound nowadays scene will have to offer!

The band released two singles, „Church Of Let It All Go” and „The Crows“, before they caught the attention of Argonauta Records in 2018. Grandier is currently putting final touches on their upcoming record in the studio, which will be seeing the light of day in 2019 with Argonauta Records.

„From the start of the band in late 2016, we wanted to focus on riffs and slow, heavy groove, and Lars vocals. Moody and groovy. So far, it has turned out pretty OK, and we’re quite obsessed with sound, recording and mixing so that’ll probably show, too. We’re also starting to look for shows to play live, but the focus right now is getting the album done.“

Grandier is Patrik Lidfors (Guitars) Lars Carlberg (Vocals, Bass) and Claes Pålsson (Drums).

Lowburn Announce New Album Due Early Next Year

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 6th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Finnish heavy rockers Lowburn are in the midst of preparing their second album — the title of which hasn’t yet been made public — for an early 2019 release through Argonauta Records. The same label handled the issue of their 2018 EP, Sleeping Giant (review here), as well as their 2015 debut, Doomsayer. As the EP saw an uptick in the quality of songwriting and the overall development in the band’s sound, and as they’ve already reportedly taken much of the new stuff to the stage, one has no reason to expect a backwards step from the Lappeenranta four-piece, who were pretty on point to start with, frankly.

Seems like we’ve got a little bit before it’s out — going by the below I don’t think it’s actually done yet — but it’ll be worth keeping an eye out and when I see something, I’ll say something, like the posters in the train stations say.

Argonauta posted the following:

lowburn

After 2 singles, 2 EPs and the debut album “Doomsayer”, Finnish Stoner Rockers Lowburn have been working on their anticipated full-length album number 2. The 8 new songs of fuzzy heaviness is forming up nicely. These new songs show more of the heavier side of the band but of course there will be some psychedelia included!

Almost all of the new songs have already been gig-proved as well in couple of selected gigs around Finland. The cover-art and the album name are already decided and all the info will be revealed drop by drop before the album release early 2019!

After a short hiatus from music Tomi Mykkänen and Henkka Vahvanen from Battlelore started jamming again together. Miika Kokkola (founding member and original bass player from Battlelore) was contacted and asked if he wants to jam with the guys. He did. Miika said that he had already talked with Tommi Havo (another original Battlelore member) about the project and that he was very interested. So, enter Tommi and on the first rehearsal together the first real song was made. On the second rehearsal the second song was made and then it was realized that the band had been born.

Listen to their killer stuff here:

Hollow Leg & Witchkiss Touring in October

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 22nd, 2018 by JJ Koczan

hollow leg

witchkiss

Last time I heard from Florida’s Hollow Leg, it was this Spring when they announced they’d begun work on their next record. I don’t know what their recording process is like off the top of my head, but I’m going to guess that the album is probably done. Since they’re teamed up with New York’s Witchkiss to tour their way out to Doomed and Stoned Fest in Indianapolis — where Hollow Leg are set to play Oct. 6 — and back eastward after, and since Witchkiss‘ 2018 album is called The Austere Curtains of Our Eyes, and since the tour is called “The Austere Civilizations Tour,” I’ll further guess that not only is the new Hollow Leg record done, but the title in some way involves the word “civilizations.” Maybe that’s all it’s called. I don’t know, folks, these are just guesses.

If you’re looking for harder news, well, there’s the tour dates for starters. They’re right here, as per the PR wire:
