Black Rainbows Announce European Tour Dates

You know the question I’m about to ask, right? You have to. It’s almost too obvious. Will Pandaemonium — the forthcoming sixth long-player from Italian heavy psychedelic rock forerunners Black Rainbows — be the album that finally brings them to US shores? It is to wonder. One would think that with all of the groups guitarist/vocalist Gabriele Fiori has brought to Europe through the booking wing of his record label Heavy Psych Sounds over the years, there must be plenty of acts with whom they could partner for a run at least of the coasts/major markets, if not all 48 contiguous states.

Especially with the arrival in North America of underground heavy acts like Truckfighters paving the way for Greenleaf and 1000mods and others, it seems like there’s something of a shift happening to make European bands coming to the US to tour a more sustainable prospect. Of course, I don’t know if it’s even on Black Rainbows‘ radar in terms of goals — America isn’t exactly ingratiating itself to the rest of the planet these days, admittedly — but as many times as they’ve crossed back and forth over Europe over the years, they’d seem ripe for striking out into some new territory. At least for a festival or two.

Just a thought on the occasion of Black Rainbows announcing another sizable European run, which they did thusly via the PR wire:

Messa Set April 6 Release for Feast for Water

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 19th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

messa

Keep an eye out for this one. Really. With their second record, Feast for Water, Italian four-piece Messa take a massive swath of influences from across various styles of heavy and make them their own, and I’m not just talking about the angular crunch early in “Leah” or the derived-from-black-metal gallop of the preceding “Snakeskin Drape,” but you can hear it in the vast, open, drone-infused ambient stretches in those tracks and others as well, the band establishing firm command of grunge riffing on “Tulsi” and trading between dense, rolling riffs and key-led atmospheres on “White Stains,” which follows — they’ve got genuine breadth and depth to their approach. With the unflinching soulfulness from vocalist Sara out front, the songs shift smoothly through a range of moods and expressive sensibilities.

Not that I’ve heard it or anything.

The album is out April 6. Here’s details from the PR wire:

Messa Feast for Water

MESSA: new album “Feast For Water” to be issued April 6th on Aural Music

Italy’s peerless “scarlet doom” foursome MESSA have announced the release of their sophomore full-length “Feast For Water”, to be issued April 6th on Aural Music.
MESSA play evoking doom metal with a dark jazz twist. Deliciously haunting female vocals, Rhodes piano and 70’s fuzz guitars combine to conjure a sound that is all of their own. With influences as diverse as Windhand, Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore, The Devil’s Blood, Jex Thoth, Angelo Badalamenti, Bellwitch, Urfaust, John Coltrane and Aluk Todolo, the band has moved from the droning occult doom of their first LP ‘Belfry’ to a new, darker and more atmospheric approach clearly showcased in their new record ‘Feast for Water’, a concept album centered on the introspective, symbolic and ritual features of the liquid element.

MESSA – New album “Feast For Water”
Out April 6th on Aural Music
Pre-order from March 2nd at this location

TRACK LISTING:
1. Naunet
2. Snakeskin Drape
3. Leah
4. The Seer
5. She Knows
6. Tulsi
7. White Stains
8. Da Tariki Tariquat

MESSA emerged on the first day of 2014. Marco and Sara started to develop the basic concept while writing the first songs. Later on, Alberto and Rocco joined the band. The extreme diversity of their musical background immediately proved to be essential in the construction of the band’s sound. In 2016, Messa signed a deal with Aural Music and subsequently released their first opus, ‘Belfry’, which was brought on tour extensively across Europe and USA. A flexy disc and a Picture 7’’ were released before the band got to work on their second album titled ‘Feast for Water’, a mind blowing Dark Jazz Doom ritual drenched in Occult Blues from hell.

MESSA IS
Marco – Guitar, Bass, Ambient
Sara – Voice
Rocco – Drums, Screams
Alberto – Lead Guitar, Rhodes piano

Full Album Stream & Track-by-Track: Supernaughty, Vol. 1

Posted in Features on February 19th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

supernaughty

From Kyuss-style careening to toughguy creeper chug, it’s abundantly clear throughout their debut album that Italian four-piece Supernaughty have done their homework when it comes to engaging with classic heavy rock. They pull influence from masters of the form throughout songs like “Bad Games,” “The Slicers” and “Kiss the Death,” executing crisp songcraft and a subtly varied approach along the way, the penultimate “Y.A.T.” pushing into lumbering instrumental exploration as it nears the seven-minute mark while opener “Mistress” and closer “Fuck’n Drive” opt for a more straightforward tack.

Comprised of vocalist Angelo Fagni and drummer Alessio Franceschi, both also of Cora, bassist Andrea Burroni — since replaced by Luca Raffoni — and guitarist Filippo del Bimbo, also of underrated Argonauta Records labelmates Bantoriak, despite their Sabbath-referencing name, there’s very little about Suprenaughtythat veers into doom. If one looks specifically at the interaction between “Mistress” and “Fuck’n Drive” at the beginning and the end of the record — not to mention “The Slicers” in between — there are elements not only of ’90s and ’00s-era greats like Kyuss and Dozer, but their acolyte practitioners like Truckfighters and Deville as well.

It would seem to be the latter class that Supernaughty are trying to enter with their debut release, and it’s an ambitious league to enter for a band their first time out. Still, for having their sound as tightly presented as they do, Supernaughty give a clear impression of knowing who they are and what they want to do as a band. I don’t imagine they’re finished growing together as a unit, and Vol. 1 has some bite to its mix that the band might smooth out overtime in terms of balancing the vocals and guitars and so on, but it’s a raucous, classic-minded heavy rocker that winds up looking to have a good time, and as the motor-ready “Fuck’n Drive” hits the streets to make its final statement, the band sound like they’re nothing if not ready to get on the move.

Today they take us briefly through the Vol. 1, one track at a time, and you can read what they had to say and check out a full stream of the album below. Vol. 1 is out now on Argonauta Records.

Please enjoy:

Supernaughty, Vol. 1 Track-by-Track

01. Mistress

The heavy riffing opening track “Mistress” wants clearly show the powerful sound of the band. It talks about different relationships between women and men and the need that the slave has towards his mistress.

02. Bad Games

Most ’90s-influenced track, mixing heavy rock style with early grunge attitude. On “Bad Games,” we wonder who ‘drives the human race’ underlining absurd choices that ‘the power’ make everyday.

03. The Slicers

Mostly influenced stoner rock song, “The Slicers” moves through powerful riff and melodic singing. The meaning of this song is about unsatisfied persons ruining other people’s lives.

04. Andy’s Abduction

This is one of our favourite tracks. Freely inspired by the ’90s movie, Robert Lieberman’ Fire in the Sky. The story of Trevis Walton’s alien abduction, here, is re-adapted for our friend Andy. It’s a monolithic riff slowly that becomes a kind of psychedelic trip.

05. Kiss the Death

The story behind this track is about a dream interpretation: It warns from any wrong choices that we could make in our life but we do it anyway. Starting with acid guitar intro, “Kiss the Death” has a heavy verse and melodic refrain.

06. YAT

Literally “Young Amoeba’s Theory,” recalling the destructive nature of parasites. Unlike predators, parasites typically do not kill their host, but live on their host for an extended period. Here the parallelism is with a young lady. Music switches between powerful and granitic choruses and verses, that guide the listener to a psychedelic final vortex to hell.

07. Fuck’n Drive

This classical rock ‘n’ roll track was chosen to close the album just because sounds different than the other tracks, while the heavy bluesy closure along with the lyrics, sum our vision to be in band and have fun.

Cough Announce West Coast Tour with Grime

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 16th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

If you’re on the West Coast and looking to test your tolerance for extreme sludge, this might be the show with which to do it. Italy’s Grime are nothing if not aptly-named. Their sound is a filth-coated assault of bludgeoning aural misanthropy. Not only that they would come to the US to tour, but that they’d partner with Richmond, Virginia, dirge-oozers Cough is significant, the latter being a genuinely headlining-worthy outfit in terms of presence and volume who compromise neither in their pursuit of some of the darkest sonic corners to be found anywhere. There will be riffs. They will be loud. They will be slow. They will be punishing.

The tour is presented by Midnite Collective, and kudos to them on the pairing. The PR wire puts it like this:

cough tour poster

COUGH (Relapse) & GRIME (Argento) Announce Joint West Coast Tour

Announcing a plague over the West Coast…Virginia’s COUGH (Relapse Records) and Italy’s GRIME (Argento) are joining forces to wreak havoc this May. CA’s Midnite Collective takes responsibility for bringing the Italian doom lords across the ocean for their first ever US shows – sure to be a hell of a run. Dates below:

Catch COUGH & GRIME Live:
5/11 – Los Angeles, CA – Union
5/12 – Phoenix, AZ – Club Red
5/13 – Las Vegas, NV – The Bunkhouse Saloon
5/14 – San Diego, CA – Soda Bar
5/15 – Oakland, CA – The Golden Bull
5/16 – Portland, OR – Tonic Lounge
5/17 – Seattle, WA – The Highline

Conceived in the fertile metal underground of Richmond, VA circa 2005, ?COUGH ?have sought to be the heaviest band ever since their inception. The band takes inspiration from the most savage aspects of extreme music, from crushing doom metal and grimy sludge to early black metal. After the independent 2007 release of their first EP, ?The Kingdom?, ?COUGH? quickly put out their first proper full-length, ?Sigillum Luciferi ?(Forcefield Records, 2008).

Between hospital visits and bouts of near-insanity, ?COUGH? slowly labored forward with the writing of their follow-up album. By 2010 the band had signed to Relapse Records and returned to Chicago, IL, enlisting Parker once again to record their sophomore album, the aptly titled Ritual Abuse. ?

After a six year hiatus, ?COUGH ?return with ?Still They Pray?, a 65? ?minute acid-drenched nightmare set to music?.? Produced by ?Electric Wizard’s ?Jus Oborn and recorded by Oborn and ?Windhand’s? Garrett Morris, ?COUGH? pick up where ?Ritual Abuse ?left off, masterfully pushing their black cosmic psychedelia to the brink of despair. ?

Grime starts its mission in Trieste, Italy during summer 2010- their only goal is bringing destruction to a town near yours. Their sound is rooted in a rotten burial ground and their songs are the voice of a decaying swamp filled with trash. Marching to a slow and heavy groove as filthy and vicious as the guitar riffs are sharp and covered with rust. Drums and bass hit with the unstoppable power of a mud avalanche.

Over the years the band toured relentlessly across Europe (with Converge, Cough, Fistula, Today is The Day and -(16)-, to name a few) and had the honor to play some of the greatest European festivals such as Roadburn, Heavy Days in Doomtown, Bloodshed Festival, Barroselas Metal Fest and Desertfest (London and Belgium). Grime is ready to release some new material in 2018 along multiple tours…stay tuned.

Towards Atlantis Lights Premiere “Alexandria’s Library” from Dust of Aeons

Posted in audiObelisk, Reviews on February 16th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Towards Atlantis Lights

You know what happens when you swim toward the lights of Atlantis? You fucking drown. Such would seem to be the overarching perspective from which multinational grief-laden doomers Towards Atlantis Lights are working on their Transcending Obscurity Records debut album, Dust of Aeons. Comprised of four tracks beginning with the utter consumption of the half-hour-long “The Bunker of Life” (immediate points for putting the longest song first), the record is due out March 5 and presents itself as a morose wash of death-doom impulses, part melancholic melody and part extremity of crawl and lurch. Shades of My Dying Bride‘s theatricality and Novembers Doom‘s brutal and downer growling metal make themselves known throughout the four-song/57-minute offering, and though very much of the style, Dust of Aeons successfully revels in its atmosphere and reminds listeners of the resonance this style of doom can hold when so properly executed.

The album pairs two longer songs with two shorter ones. I’d call it two-sided, but the break doesn’t really work that way, with “The Bunker of Life” basically an album unto itself. Even if that track was broken in half for the first of a double-LP, there would still be “Babylon’s Hanging Gardens” (5:57), “Alexandria’s Library” (16:35) and “Greeting Mausolus’ Tomb” (4:23) to account for, and those shorter tracks are more than just interludes. Vocalist/keyboardist Kostas Panagiotou brings as much presence to them as to either of the longer-form pieces, delving into poetry recitation in “Babylon’s Hanging Gardens” as Ivan Zara‘s guitar, Ivan Olivieri‘s drums and Riccardo Veronese‘s bass wait to reemerge from the shadows. But while it might not work as a vinyl in itTowards Atlantis Lights Dust of Aeonss current form without some rearranging, as a linear work it is tied together via a historical thematic and as the title Dust of Aeons might convey, the aesthetic is very much geared toward that sense of conveying something ancient, something lost in time, as well as something being mourned.

That mourning perhaps comes through most of all on “Greeting Mausolus’ Tomb,” which takes out the drums in favor of atmospheric guitar plucking and an overall minimal sensibility, but it’s there even at the heaviest stretches of “The Bunker of Life” as well, whether that’s in a soaring guitar lead or the rumbling low-end lurch beneath a line of piano. Though only about half as long, much the same applies to “Alexandria’s Library,” which is immediately darker but gives up none of the atmospheric reach of its longform companion, keys, vocal harmonies and sustained notes of guitar playing a large role in a break near the midsection which ultimately leads back to the track’s central dirge. At almost exactly 13 minutes in, more deathly chug takes hold and a relatively quick excursion into semi-blasting fare sets up an adrenaline-driven return to the chorus before Towards Atlantis Lights finish quiet and contemplative en route to the album’s shorter closer, weighted in emotion, tone and ambience as everything before it has likewise been.

The theme of loss is palpable throughout Dust of Aeons, with the passage of history presented through an emotional lens that acts as a thread woven between the individual pieces bringing them together as one whole work. And it’s not a minor undertaking by any stretch, but in its entirety really is the best way to experience Towards Atlantis Lights‘ debut album. Clearly they wanted their listeners to drown in its blend of depressive plunge and still be able to see beauty among the ruins before their eyes shut one last time.

I have the pleasure today of hosting “Alexandria’s Library” as a track premiere. Please find it below, followed by more info on the album from the PR wire. Dust of Aeons is available to preorder from the band’s Bandcamp page, linked at the bottom of the post.

Enjoy:

Each song is an elegant expression of their dreamlike visions of a world long past. They carry the burden of grief passed down from centuries with utmost grace and lend to the music an unmistakable nostalgic charm that is very much palpable. TOWARDS ATLANTIS LIGHTS have created a masterpiece of epic and atmospheric death/doom metal that is tempered with talent, experience and vision.

Lee Van Cleef Announce Spring Tour Dates

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 13th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

It’s been suspiciously long since we heard from Naples-based heavy jam trio Lee Van Cleef, and by that I still only mean a matter of months. The three-piece issued their latest single, Everyone Should Kill an Old Hippy (discussed here), in April 2017, played the Red Smoke Festival in Poland in July, and haven’t really been heard from since.

Why’s that uncommon?

Well, a lot of the time with improv-based or jam-style bands, it seems like every time they have a practice session they put out a new album from it. I wonder if Lee Van Cleef’s process isn’t a little different somehow, if there isn’t more writing involved at the foundations of their parts. Certainly their 2016 debut full-length, Holy Smoke (review here), which came out on White Dwarf Records vinyl, could be said to have an undercurrent of direction, rather than just being a work of 100 percent meandering jams. Maybe it’s a more involved process of carving pieces out as they go.

Last summer when I had the Q&A with the band linked above — also here — they said they’d begun work on their next record. Now, that could mean anything from finished songs to half-shaped riffs, but work had begun. One assumes by the time they hit the road in April to head through Austria, Germany and Poland, they’ll be testing out new material on the stage, because from what I hear, the plan is to hit the studio upon their return from the tour to track the awaited next album. Just going by what I’m told on that one.

Not sure on a release plan or anything like that, but one assumes we’ll get there. Till then, here’s the latest from the band:

All right folks, just announce few gigs for this spring! Spring Bufu Tour is coming:

Heavy Psych Sounds Announces Vol. III Label Sampler

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 7th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

You gotta watch out for these. They’re sneaky. Label samplers can be tricky in general — sometimes it’s nothing but rehashed tracks from years ago with one or two new songs from a band somebody’s trying to push, but with Heavy Psych Sounds, their annual sampler series has been a way of sneaking new tracks out for first public showcases. Last year, new Black Rainbows showed up, and sure enough they appear here as well, and there also seems to be some new stuff from The Freeks included, which as far as I’m concerned is reason enough on its own to chase the thing down. Also Tons will have a track on there ahead of their album release in April, and new Killer Boogie, so yeah, plenty to grab onto, and even the stuff that’s already out — Mother Engine, Fvzz Popvli, The Lords of Altamont, Nick Oliveri — is all still current, and righteous. That “Kyuss Dies” song is hilarious.

Full tracklisting follows here, courtesy of the PR wire:

The Bad Light & Tuna de Tierra Release The Bad Tuna Split

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 1st, 2018 by JJ Koczan

There are few things I love more unabashedly, unashamedly and unironically in the realm of music than a cleverly named split release. Really. I’m not being sarcastic or trying to make a joke. You got two bands sharing a release and you’ve come up with a wordplay name for it? Chances are I’m at very least going to be on board on a linguistic level. What makes The Bad Tuna — the new and cleverly-titled Phonosphera Records split from Santa Cruz, California’s The Bad Light and Naples, Italy’s Tuna de Tierra — even better in my book is the groove quotient. Between the rolling blues fuzz of the former and the desert-worshiping vibes of the latter, that quotient is mighty indeed, and perhaps best summed up by The Bad Light themselves with the name of their second track. Appropriate nomenclature all the way around.

I’ll admit this is my first exposure to The Bad Light, who apparently have a new full-length — their second — currently in the works, but if the Tuna de Tierra cuts seem familiar, they were previously issued as 2015’s self-released EPisode I: Pilot (review here) debut EP. Time has not dulled their luster.

Release info and audio follows. Even if all you do is stream the thing, it’s well worth your time to do so:

the bad light tuna de tierra the bad tuna split

THE BAD LIGHT / TUNA DE TIERRA – THE BAD TUNA

This is the first edition of the SPLIT SERIES by Phonosphera Records, soon more to come!

Boiled down to the basic ingredients of drums, guitar and vocals The Bad Light plays their own brand of blues driven stoner sludge, the songs feel equally at home played through a resonator guitar as they do through a thick wall of fuzz.

Sounds from the desert, wide landscape full of sand at the sunset, intolerable warm atmospheres, lysergic imagination nurturing air. The Tuna de Tierra leaves for a trip with neither destination nor end, but just the purpose to move endlessly.

Tracklisting:
1. The Bad Light – Palo Santo 01:21
2. The Bad Light – Goodshit 04:49
3. The Bad Light – The Feels 05:11
4. The Bad Light – Love Letter 05:31
5. Tuna de Tierra – Red Sun 08:28
6. Tuna de Tierra – Ash 07:24
7. Tuna de Tierra – El Paso de la Tortuga 04:07

The Bad Light is:
Dana Shepard-Drums
Celeste Deruisa-Vocals
Edu Cerro-Guitar/Vocals

Recorded at The Compound in Felton CA, November 2017
Engineer-Joe Clement

Tuna de Tierra is:
Alessio De Cicco: guitar, vocals
Luciano Mirra: bass guitar
Jonathan Maurano: drums

Produced by Tuna de Tierra
Recorded and mixed at Trail Music Lab, Napoli (by Fabrizio Piccolo)
Vinyl master by Roy Bortoluzzi at xxx Studio (Rome, IT)
