kamchatka

With their new album in the can, Swedish blues rock trio Kamchatka have headed out on a new round of European tour dates. I’m not sure when the record will be out — I could tell you later this year, which is pretty much the same as saying “ever” — but the tour is underway now, and Snuff Lane, which is presenting the three UK headlining shows, has announced the support acts. In addition to Germany’s Coogans Bluff, who’ll join up with Kamchatka fresh off a round of gigs with Spidergawd, the likes of Baron Greenback and newcomer Dopefight-offshoot Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters will open shows.

The PR wire brings more details, courtesy of Snuff Lane:

As part of this three date tour, Kamchatka will host a FREE show at The Unicorn in Camden on Tuesday 18 March.

This free London event will also be showcasing a debut performance by the heavily anticipated Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters, comprised of members from Dopefight, Grey Widow, Witchfist and Mama Moonshine, these tye-dye metal stoners will be reigning their throbbing chubby fuzz for the FIRST TIME EVER in support of Kamchatka.

Cities of Mars Announce Debut Recording Plans

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 25th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

cities-of-mars

Never heard of Cities of Mars? Don’t sweat it. I hadn’t either until bassist/vocalist/spacetime-transmissionist Danne Palm (formerly of Monolord) reached out yesterday to inform of his intentions to lead the newcomer trio into the studio this Spring to record their debut album. No audio yet, but the band’s concept sold me on it anyway, inventing a tale of a successful Soviet expedition to Mars in the 1970s and chronicling the experience there of a female cosmonaut who arrives to discover an ancient civilization.

Sounds pretty awesome, right? I’d read that short story, and when the time comes, I’ll check out the record. Until they go in to track the beast, with Monolord‘s Esben Willems no less, there’s just the basic announcement to go by, so here’s that in case you’d like an early glimpse at what they’ll be going for in the studio:

cities of mars logo

The Cities of Mars revealed via Monolord producer in 2015

Vocalist/bassist and Cities of Mars’ main songwriter Danne Palm co-formed and wrote material with Swedish doom titans Monolord in early 2013, formed from the ashes of Sweden’s hardest working boogie rock band Marulk. Wanting to pursue another musical direction, Cities of Mars emerged in 2014 with guitarist/vocalist Christoffer Norén (also in Benevolent) and drummer Anders Runesson. Keeping a close friendship with the guys in Monolord, drummer/engineer/producer Esben Willems was happy to offer his massive-sound producing skills for a two track single scheduled for recording in late spring 2015.

Not only a power trio with experienced musicians, Cities of Mars also features an extensive background story dating back to 9000 BC, closely knit into the lyrics and artwork – an extra treat for those sci-fi, fantasy and comic aficionados out there.

In short:

In the early 1970’s, the Soviet Union made several attempts to land on Mars. Officially, they failed.

What if the opposite was true, that a highly trained female operative succeeded in landing on the red planet and found a dark ancient civilization buried beneath the surface?

Cities of Mars has risen to tell this tale, with an asteroid-sized hulk of spaced out, fuzz-drenched, high gravity riffage. With three experienced rock musicians cranking the best out of their songcraft and high wattage amps, a dramatic interplanetary mythology dating back thousands of years is revealed, piece by piece, song by song.

Spacetime transmissions will begin in mid-2105.

Danne Palm: bass,vox & spacetime transmissions
Christoffer Norén: guitar, vox & vortex navigation
Anders Runesson: drums, vox & black hole calculations

The Obelisk Radio Adds: Primitive Man, Sandrider + Kinski, Hiram-Maxim, Obrero and Elbrus

Posted in Radio on February 16th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

the obelisk radio

I know it’s not the usual custom to do Radio adds on Mondays, but what the hell, it’s not exactly like there are rules one way or another, and my desktop has hit eight rows deep of folders with albums in them, so whatever day it might be, it’s time to clear out as much of it as possible. A full 22 records join The Obelisk Radio playlist today. Some of it is very strange, some of it pretty straightforward, but one way or another, I think it all makes the stream better and more diverse, and that’s what it’s all about. For the full list of everything added, check out the Playlist and Updates page.

The Obelisk Radio adds for Feb. 16, 2015:

Primitive Man, Home is Where the Hatred Is

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

After their destructive 2013 Relapse Records debut, Scorn (review here), Primitive Man‘s reputation for brutality precedes them. The Denver trio’s new EP, Home is Where the Hatred Is, is only likely to further that reputation, its four tracks alternating between grueling, unrepentantly slow-lumbering, ungodly-toned extremity and fits of grinding megaviolence. The release is arranged longest to shortest so that opener “Loathe” (11:03) is sure to weed out the weaker constitutions en route to the ensuing crushers “Downfall” (8:43) and “Bag Man” (7:09). The closer, “A Marriage with Nothingness” (4:17) is a collage of noise and fedback threat topped with a sample of a woman either in ecstasy or agony — in context it’s kind of hard to tell — but the message is plain either way. One might think of that cut as an answer to Primitive Man‘s 2013 P//M Noise Tape, which also explored droning forms between covers of PortisheadBlack Sabbath and Crowbar. Perhaps most foreboding of all is how smoothly Primitive Man shift between the facets of their increasingly diverse sound, since it speaks to a progression in progress in terms of bringing the various elements together. A beast is one thing, but a thinking beast seems all the more ominous. They may be in the process of outgrowing their name, but a savage force remains at the heart of their bludgeoning. Primitive Man on Thee Facebooks, Relapse Records.

Sandrider and Kinski, Sandrider + Kinski Split

sandrider kinski split

With geography in common in their Seattle base of operation, Sandrider and Kinski present their Sandrider + Kinski split on Good to Die Records with three new songs from the former, including a cover of Jane’s Addiction‘s “Mountain Song,” and two from the latter, working in instrumental, textured heavy psychedelic forms that complement Sandrider‘s bombastic approach as heard on their two full-lengths to date, 2013’s Godhead (review here) and 2011’s self-titled debut (review here). Both “Beyond in Touch with My Feminine Side” (8:42) and “The Narcotic Comforts of the Status Quo” (5:17) flesh out open spaces, rich in tone and flowing movement, with the closer more of a riffy, space-rock feel while “Beyond in Touch with My Feminine Side” is more exploratory, fading out at its end is the jam sort of deconstructs below lead guitar. As for Sandrider‘s “Rain” (4:47) and “Glaive” (4:40), for anyone who’s heard the rolling punk heaviness of their albums, it should be enough to say they sound like Sandrider – upbeat and catchy and furious and kinetic — and while I’m not sure anyone ever needed to hear a Jane’s Addiction song ever again (ever.), they take what was probably the band’s best riff and re-suit it to their own purposes, which if you’re going to do it at least is the right way to go about it. Sandrider on Thee Facebooks, Kinski on Thee Facebooks, Good to Die Records.

Hiram-Maxim, Hiram-Maxim

hiram-maxim hiram-maxim

Ultimately, Hiram-Maxim‘s self-titled Aqualamb debut reads more like an experiment in the deconstruction of sound than an album in the traditional sense, and perhaps I use the word “reads” because it’s a book. As has become Aqualamb‘s modus, the four-track release comes as a 100-page artbook and a download that contains its nonetheless-vinyl-ready darkened forms, whether it’s the brooding “One” (11:47) with backing drones and open guitars or the preceding “Can’t Stop” (11:55) with its rising current of abrasive, almost grating noise that gradually consumes whatever song was there to start with. It is a dark atmosphere, and the opener, “Visceral”  (7:14), is well titled, but the pervading vibe is more exploratory than theatrical; like the listener, the Cleveland four-piece are feeling their way through these deep reaches, and when they come around to the apex of closer “Worship” (6:25), the resolution they seem to find is frantic and desolate in turn. In another universe, one might call it punk rock. Here, it is gleefully and thoroughly fucked. Hiram-Maxim on Thee Facebooks, Aqualamb.

Obrero, The Infinite Corridors of Time

Obrero The Infinite Corridors of Time

The Infinite Corridors of Time, the second long-player from Stockholm old-schoolers Obrero should — contrary to their logo — appeal to fans of Hour of 13 and Argus and others who’ve made preservation of classic metal their mission, skirting the fine line between doomly Sabbath worship and proto-NWOBHM stylized forwardness of purpose. The double-guitar five-piece show some penchant for ’70s heavy rock on cuts like “Oneironaut” (6:20) and “The Axial Age” (5:40) but by and large their purposes are more metallic, meshing AC/DC and Judas Priest impulses into the keyboard-laden “Manchester Morgue” (5:01) or “Phobos and Deimos” (5:42), which stands out for its hook and successful blend alike. At eight tracks/52 minutes, The Infinite Corridors of Time is no minor undertaking — there is no song under five minutes long — but their use of keys allows Obrero to work in various moods, and for those seeking purity in their metal, the Swedish outfit offer glimpses without being wholly derivative of what’s come before. Obrero on Thee Facebooks, To the Death Records.

Elbrus, Far Away and into Space Pt. 2

Elbrus Far Away and into Space Pt. 2

If you feel like you missed out on Far Away and into Space Pt. 1, don’t worry about it. Melbourne, Australia, four-piece Elbrus are actually starting out with Pt. 2, and it’s their debut single, an 11-minute psychedelic push of heavy blues rock, stoner rollout and organ-blessed jamming. I’m not sure it’s safe yet to call what’s happening in Melbourne right now a “heavy blues revival” as acts like Elbrus and Child delve into such sonic territory — if only because with bands like Horsehunter and Hotel Wrecking City Traders out there, the city’s take on heavy isn’t so easily categorized — but one rarely recognizes such things until beaten over the head by them. Either way, “Far Away and into Space Pt. 2″ gracefully looses a molten flow over its 11:06 stretch, vocalist/organist Ollie Bradley-Smith unafraid to cut through the natural-sounding, weighted tones of guitarist Ringo Camilleri and bassist Mafi Watson while Tom Todorovic‘s drums smooth the way between volume and tempo changes and add cymbal-crash swing to both. It’s a smooth-grooved nod, and aside from making me curious to hear the first installment of “Far Away and into Space,” it makes me wonder what Elbrus might next encounter as that journey unfolds. Elbrus on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp.

One more time, this is not even a quarter of what’s been added today. There’s also stuff from Black Rainbows, Felipe Arcazas, Headless Kross, Warhorse, Twingiant and others, so please make sure you hit up the Obelisk Radio Playlist and Updates page to see the full list.

Thanks as always for reading and listening.

Monolord to Release Vænir in April; Tour with Salem’s Pot Starts Feb. 18

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 11th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

monolord (Photo by Hank Henrik Oscarsson)

Swedish trio Monolord demolished brains with last year’s RidingEasy Records debut, Empress Rising, and their second album, dubbed Vænir after Sweden’s largest lake, is due to arrive in April. They’ll appear at this year’s Roadburn that month, and before then, they’ve got a tour that starts next week alongside their labelmates in Salem’s Pot that’s bound to offer no shortage of riffage and volume as it storms across Western Europe and the UK. I’d expect more dates to come. If demand and the quick turnaround between their two records is anything to go by, Monolord are just getting started.

The PR wire keeps us up to date:

monolord salem's pot tour

MONOLORD return with new album Vænir | UK & European Tour Dates with Salem’s Pot

Initially formed as a side project in 2013 out of the ashes of Swedish bands Marulk and Rotten Sound – comprising of guitar player and vocalist Thomas Jäger, drummer Esben Willems and bassist Mika Häkki – Monolord emerged as one of 2014’s heaviest, loudest and best-loved breakout bands.

So for those left dumbfounded by the heady mix of mania and tinnitus that came free with the Gothenburg trio’s impressive debut album, the suggestion that this year could see an improvement of any kind might seem impossible to believe. Empress Rising was not just lauded over; many believed it raised the bar for the genre with its doom-metal powered by psychedelic grooves, immense heaviness and cosmic cohesion marking it out instantly for cult classic status.

This April however Monolord return to unleash Vænir. Named after the biggest lake in Sweden, the overall effect of this eagerly awaited album can only be described as vast. Colossal in fact, with the only true metric of certainty being at forty-eight minutes long, across six epic tracks (including the recently released single ‘Cursing The One’) Vænir has the power to level everything it its path.

Vænir by Monolord will be released on 28th April 2015 via RidingEasy Records. For fans looking to experience the sheer power of the band live, Monolord take to the road this February across Europe with fellow Swedes and RidingEasy label mates Salem’s Pot. (See dates below.)

Tour Dates:

Feb 18th – KB18 (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Feb 19th – Kufa Löseke (Hildesheim, Germany)
Feb 20th – Merleyn (Nijmegen, Netherlands)
Feb 21st – Vera (Groningen, Netherlands)

Deville Writing New Album; Playing Germany in May

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 10th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

deville

Swedish heavy rockers Deville have announced their intentions toward a fourth long-player. Their third, you might recall, was the Small Stone release, Hydra (review here), that brought the Malmö four-piece over for their first US tour last summer, an East Coast slog in the June heat that nonetheless presumably paved the way for future incursions on the back of their next album. Well, the time for that next album seems to have arrived. The lineup of Andreas Bengtsson, Andreas Wulkan, Markus Åkesson, Markus Nilsson is writing now in advance of recording in Spring and releasing in the Fall.

For anyone who might want to delve back into Deville‘s earlier work, in 2013, Italian imprint Heavy Psych Sounds — run by Gabriele Fiori of Black Rainbows — reissued their 2007 debut, Come Heavy Sleep, in a couple different limited versions that are still available, including a new version of closer “Rise Above” with its particularly massive central riff. Hydra as well remains on sale and can be heard in full from Small Stone‘s Bandcamp under the news below.

In addition to work on the next record, Deville have announced a quick round of dates in Germany with German/Russian rockers Iguana, whose debut, Get the City Love You (review here), came out in 2012 and who have continued to play shows around Europe ever since. Not sure where Deville will be at in the songwriting/recording by the time they go out, but new material doesn’t seem unlikely.

Dates and the quick statement from the band follow here:

deville jacket

So! We are currently working on material for a new Deville album and hope to enter the studio later in the spring for a release this fall. That´s the plan at least.

But we will play live also and are heading out with the nice desert/psych rockers Iguana for some shows in Germany in May. Prost!

Saturnalia Temple Post Video for “To the Other”

Posted in Bootleg Theater on February 10th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

saturnalia-temple

Rife with obscure, self-shot looking imagery that just finally holds still on a shot of someone walking off into a nameless forest void, yeah, you could say that the new video for the title-track of Saturnalia Temple‘s forthcoming To the Other LP fits the atmosphere the song creates. The track itself is a nine-minute march of bizarre and ritualized doom, not beat-you-over-the-head-with-riffs heavy, but with a grueling purpose to its echoing incantations all the same. To the Other is out Feb. 23 on Listenable in Europe and The Ajna Offensive in the US.

I haven’t heard the record yet, but it seems safe to presume this is a significant slice of it, Aldebaran drummer Tim Call stepping in to punctuate the morose proceedings in all their resonant, hypnotic, darkened vibing. Worth noting that the fire pit above — an accent worthy of adding to any outdoor experience — makes an appearance in full nighttime glory in the video’s midsection, but that it’s just part of the whole rite being portrayed on “To the Other,” the guttural call of its title line echoing even after the song’s finish. Whatever else you might listen to today, chances are nothing else will sound quite like it.

Video and PR wire info follow, for the curious:

Saturnalia Temple, “To the Other” official video

Official video of title track from Saturnalia Temple’s new album To The Other. Released in Europe by Listenable Records on February 23 and in USA by The Ajna Offensive.

Today, the enigmatic Saturnalia Temple premieres a new video for “To the Other.” The song is the title track for the band’s highly anticipated second album, To the Other, set for North American release on April 7th via The Ajna Offensive. Saturnalia Temple is black magic metal, a dark spiritual vortex rooted in heavy and hypnotic sounds, a pure voice of the Draconian magical tradition now further harnessed with To the Other. As a band that moves intently and without compromise, this recording and production was done in their own studio, Sitra Ahra, located in the forests outside Uppsala, Sweden. Witness their mesmerizing majesty in visual form exclusively HERE.

Since its release, Saturnalia Temple’s critically acclaimed Aion of Drakon debut took the band to numerous major festivals throughout Europe, including Roadburn, Hell’s Pleasure, and Heavy Days in Doomtown, as well as on tours in both the U.S. and Europe. The strong occult and dark magical backbone is more prevalent than ever on To the Other, and as a band that actually started before the current “occult rock” trend, there are no fetishistic hoods, blood, or pentagrams. To The Other is instead a relentless journey through the downfall of the world and the rise of the individual striving against the grain.

Galvano Sign to Candlelight Records

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 3rd, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

galvano

Gothenburg two-piece Galvano have signed a deal to release their next album on Candlelight Records. The guitar/drums duo of Mattias Nööjd (also vocals) and Fredrik Käll made their full-length debut with 2012’s Two Titans on Devouter Records and have been steadily playing shows and have been confirmed for an appearance at this year’s Desertfest London alongside their labelmates in Orange Goblin, who’ll headline with Red Fang.

The band sent this update down the PR wire:

galvano logo

Candlelight Records Sign Swedish Sludge Duo GALVANO

From the deepest, nastiest recesses of Gothenburg comes crushing Swedish sludge duo Galvano. Now comprising Mattias Nööjd (guitars/vocals) and Fredrik Käll (drums), Galvano originally started out as a three-piece in 2005. Within two years a demo was released and live shows played.

Galvano embarked on their first mini tour in 2010 visiting Denmark and a set of German cities. That same year the band were asked to feature on a split so they went into the studio and recorded the epic single “The Librarian” which was mixed and mastered by the legendary Billy Anderson (Orange Goblin, Cathedral, Eyehategod). This was released as a 10” in 2011 on SM Musik from Leipzig, Germany. The release was then followed up by a full European tour.

After this tour the band said goodbye to their fourth bass player and decided to move on as a duo. Early in 2012 they teamed up with UK based label Devouter Records for the release of their debut full-length album “Two Titans”. The album was released on December 5th and was very well received by both fans and media.

Since then the band has played over 35 shows during several European tours including UK and Ireland and are confirmed to play this year’s Desertfest in Camden, London.

In January 2015, Galvano signed with Candlelight Records and the band had this to say:

“Candlelight is a label with such an impressive roster throughout the years and we’re very happy to join the ranks alongside bands like Orange Goblin, Corrosion of Conformity and our buddies in Zatokrev just to name a few. We’re also very fond of the people working there. Looking very much forward to this release.”

Siena Root Post Video for “Root Rock Pioneers”

Posted in Bootleg Theater on January 30th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

siena root

Of all the albums I didn’t get to hear last year, I think Siena Root hurt the most. There were enough that I could have made a list — one only has so many ears and so much time — but I loved 2009’s Different Realities (discussed here) and did a track stream for the subsequent Root Jam in 2011, and when it came to the release of Pioneers in Nov. 2014 (Cleopatra Records in the US, Gaphals in Europe), I didn’t even know of its existence until after the album was released, and even then it was in some random Facebook post. What a bummer.

“Root Rock Pioneers” is the third video from that record, and in watching and listening, I think you can see why I might be down about missing the boat on the album, what with Siena Root‘s ultra-loose, natural vibe, taking the best parts of heavy rock and ’70s prog and putting them together in a way that both moves easily and demands audience attention. If they’ve created a genre for themselves — one assumes it’s “root rock” instead of “roots rock,” which already exists — they make a good case with the track for their distinction, their organic engagement departs some of the raga-inspired pastoralism of Different Realities in favor of a more rock-band-playing-rock approach that’s well suited to both the stage footage and the psychedelic visuals of the video for “Root Rock Pioneers,” which, true to form, gets a lot done in a little over four minutes.

Siena Root are on tour in Europe this March, and of course Pioneers is available now. It was Gaphals who sent along word of the clip and the tour (credit where it’s due), and you’ll find the PR wire pertinents after the video below. Please enjoy:

Siena Root is one of the most original bands in the European rock scene. The Swedish band is now releasing their fifth studio album, “Pioneers”. With over 25.000 albums sold and over four hundred packed shows performed, Siena Root is once again back from the studio with eight new tracks of pure root rock. The album is released 3th of November the Nordic Countrys, Belgium and Holland, Italy, Polen, Czech Rep, Ukraine and 7th of November in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

The record ”Pioneers” is characterized by a tasteful combination of genuine songwriting and captivating improvisations, enjoyable for anyone who wants music to be “well done”. In the spirit of keeping it real, all eight tracks are a hundred percent analog-produced, using all-vintage instruments and equipment.
