Richmond, Virginia, trio Sinister Haze have a new vinyl EP coming out called Betrayed by Time. Three of the four songs, “Betrayed by Time,” “Changin’ Ways,” and “Black Shapeless Demon,” you might recognize from their 2013 Demo (review here), but Betrayed by Time is a new recording entirely — for one thing, they were a four-piece at the time they did the demo — and features a fourth track, “Motorhaze,” which is as accurate a description of the band’s sound as anything I could ever come up with. The vinyl is available to preorder now from Heavy Slab Records.
When it arrives, it will do so on a 180g red swirl 45RPM platter, with numbers limited to 329 copies. To celebrate its coming, the three-piece will embark on a month-long coast-to-coast US tour that includes a stop at the much-anticipated Psycho California fest on May 16. They’ve also got dates scheduled along the way with Conan, US Christmas, Today is the Day, Order of the Owl, Goya and others.
Remaining true to heavy rock psychedelia, Richmond VA’s SINSTER HAZE offer their Betrayed by Time EP through Heavy Slab Records. The trio with members of doom and punk backgrounds come together for over 20 minutes of acid laced rock and roll. With the trippy grooves of “Betrayed By Time” and “Changin’ Ways” to the epic hopelessness of “Black Shapeless Demon,” this is music for rockers with a beer and joint in hand and one foot in the grave.
Limited to 300 copies, “Betrayed By Time” has been pressed to 180-gram red swirl vinyl by Heavy Slab Records, this album can be ordered online: PRE-ORDER THE RECORD FROM THE BANDHEREOR HEAVY SLABHERE.

Well, they’re playing the release show for it on May 30 (a show at which guitarist Todd Ingram will pull double-duty, also playing in Sixty Watt Shaman), so I guess the album will have to be out sometime around then. King Giant‘s third, Black Ocean Waves, was recorded by J. Robbins (Clutch, Murder by Death, Clutch again, etc.) and it brings intrigue to see where the five-piece go after the dark Southern heavy of 2012’s appropriately-titled Southern Darkness (streamed here). It’s been three years since that album dropped — goodness time flies — but I wouldn’t expect the band’s penchant for catchy songs and doomly vibes to have diminished, what with song titles like “The One that God Forgot to Save” and “Trail of Thorns” and all. Doesn’t exactly sound like fodder for the feel good hit of the summer.
The PR wire brings art and info:
KING GIANT: Blues/Doom-Ridden Northern Virginia Quintet Completes Third LP; Album Trailer And Details Released
Celebrating their tenth year as a band in 2015, Northern Virginia-based KING GIANT has completed their thundering third LP, Black Ocean Waves, set for release this Spring, and today they unveil the full album details alongside a video trailer of the album’s recording process at Magpie Cage Studios with J. Robbins.
With their brooding, doom-drenched take on Southern rock/metal, KING GIANT has been rendering their woeful, rousing tales of heartfelt loss and ruthless resolution through their songcraft since 2005, and has built a solid reputation as a diehard internal workforce through handling the recording and releasing of their own gravelly anthems since their inception. Their 2006 Burden EP was followed by the self-released 2009 LP, Southern Darkness, which won over stoner/doom rockers everywhere with its vibrant approach to the genre. But it was the Dismal Hollow LP released in 2012 that launched the band into a more accessible, but more sinister territory, reaping critical acclaim from internationally based mags and webzines.
2015 brings KING GIANT’s third full-length album, proudly celebrating a decade in existence as they prepare to unleash the wayward grooves of Black Ocean Waves. Forty-five minutes of bold, ominous, organic, and accessible material pours fourth on Black Ocean Waves, the new opus surging with eight ebbing torrents of regret, shame, revenge, and reconciliation. KING GIANT recorded in July 2014 at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, Maryland, the album engineered by Jawbox architect, J. Robbins (Clutch, The Sword, Wino) who later mixed the album. Robbins also performed Hammond organ on the track, “Blood Of The Lamb,” and background vocals on “Trail Of Thorns.”
The cover art for Black Ocean Waves, created by Misty Kilgore, the track listing, and a short visual trailer of KING GIANT’s recording experience (which includes audio excerpts from two tracks) have all been released. The band plans to independently release the album in June on CD, and digitally distribute again with The Path Less Traveled, with an LP version to follow.
The trailer for KING GIANT’s Black Ocean Waves is now playing RIGHT HERE.
Black Ocean Waves Track Listing: 1. Mal De Mer 2. The One That God Forgot To Save 3. Requiem For A Drunkard 4. Red Skies 5. Trail Of Thorns 6. Blood Of The Lamb 7. The Gentleman Carny 8. There Were Bells
KING GIANT has plans to unveil their new anthems, including a live local record release blowout in Springfield, Virginia alongside brethren Sixty Watt Shaman and Foghound on May 30th. Additional shows and tour plans will be posted shortly. Stand by for the final release date for Black Ocean Waves and whiskey-soaked tears of wounded redemption from the album to pour forth in the coming weeks.

Once again it’s been a couple weeks since I was last able to do a round of radio adds. But I have a good excuse! I was… uh… reviewing stuff? Well, that’s what I was doing, anyway. Anyhow, I’m way backed up on stuff to join the server, so for at least the next couple weeks it seems reasonable to expect regular adds while I get caught up. By then I’m sure I’ll be behind again, because somehow that’s how it works. Anyway, point is that as usual, a lot more was added to the server this afternoon than appears here, so make sure you check the Playlist and Updates page for the full list. Most of it is pretty new as well, so you might stumble on something you didn’t know was out. Could happen. Alright, let’s do this.
The Obelisk Radio adds for March 20, 2015:
XII Boar, Pitworthy
Before “Sharpshooter,” the opening track of their debut full-length, Pitworthy, actually starts, Hampshire, UK, trio XII Boar are introduced by a ring announcer in full arena-echo style. Somebody is about to get their ass kicked. That mentality tells you a lot about where the three-piece of guitarist/vocalist Tommy Hardrocks, bassist/vocalist Adam “Baddog” Thomas and drummer David Wilbraham are coming from on the 10-track outing, rife with heavy, Southern-style boogie presented with weighted burl whether it’s a slower groove like “Crushing the P” or a thrasher like “Chicken Hawk.” Side A caps with the title-track, a seven-minute Southern metal highlight, but the real party is at the end of the record’s second half, when the 11-minute “Quint” takes hold in a raucous fury of rhythmic thrust, seafaring tales and off-the-wall soloing. It is a riotous debut after a few promising EPs, and if nothing else, XII Boar make it clear that if anyone’s going to get their ass kicked, it won’t be the band. Their dudely growls and whisky this-or-that might be too much for some, but there’s no denying these guys sound like they’re having a blast, and that energy proves infectious throughout their first album. XII Boar on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp.
Deadpeach, Old Fuzz Generation
Underrated Italian fuzz rockers Deadpeach initially released the debut EP, Old Fuzz Generation, in 2004 on what was apparently severely limited vinyl. Then a three-song 7″, Old Fuzz Generation now sees a digital reissue as a four-track release with the three-minute “Spain ’87” added on to the end. All told, it’s still under 10 minutes long with all four cuts taken together, but while brief, there’s enough fuzzy rush to hearken back to a time when European heavy rock was less concerned with either psychedelic freeform jamming or sounding like it’s 1972, and that the thickened-out, sped-up punk of “Americano” (1:50) needed no frills to get its point across, tapping influences from Nebula, Fu Manchu and Kyuss even while quoting Bob Marley in the lyrics and expressing what was a pervasive anti-American sentiment throughout Europe following the US invasion of Iraq. Good times. Not really, but good fuzz, and twice as interesting when one considers how European heavy was on the verge of a multi-faceted explosion 11 years ago and Deadpeach were tapping into a similar classic heavy ethic as the likes of Demon Cleaner, earlier Dozer and their countrymen in OJM. A quick but satisfying stoner burst. Deadpeach on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp.
Suzukiton, Suzukiton II
Making their home in the fertile heavy ground of Richmond, Virginia, the instrumental four-piece Suzukiton made their debut a decade ago on Crucial Blast with Service Repair Handbook, a collection of distinctly Southern but still varied rockers that found a cult following at the time. Kind of a surprise to find that 10 years later, the four-piece of guitarists Todd Naumann and David Boyd (Twisted Tower Dire), bassist William Rose and drummer Bryan Cox (ex-Axehandle and Alabama Thunderpussy) would return with the self-released Suzukiton II, but the intervening time has done little to dull their potency, shredding leads cutting through tight rhythms in tones bordering between heavy rock and metal, a chugger like “Death of a Mule” no more out of place than a prog-metal stomper like “Ronin.” Closer “Todd II” would seem a direct sequel to “Todd Song” from the first album, but its eight-minute course feels more than duly expanded from the prior release. Thoughtful in its progressions and well-plotted within its individual pieces, Suzukiton II is nothing if not a welcome return, and if it’s the band’s position to blindside new listeners, that suits the material well. Suzukiton on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp.
Torpor, From Nothing Comes Everything
Immediate points to UK atmospheric sludgers Torpor (also stylized in all-caps) for opening their Head of Crom and Black Bow Records debut LP, From Nothing Comes Everything, with “From this Time,” the longest song on the album. Follow-up points for the actual weight of the damn thing. Dense, post-metallic claustrophobia is undercut by trades between spoken or otherwise clearheaded shouts and vicious screams, the foursome of standalone vocalist Nats Spada, guitarist/vocalist Jon Taylor, bassist Lauren Mason and drummer Simon Mason successfully avoiding stylistic cliche throughout the six-track release while executing lethal builds and thunder-toned push. “Surrender to the Light” is as effective for its melody as its chug, the obscure interlude “The Wake” rumbles and growls ferociously, and “As Waves Crash” demonstrates a powerful blend of post-hardcore and doom, from which “Abandon” departs only momentarily, delving into a minimalist midsection before rounding out with a maddening payoff. Nine-minute closer “Everything We Left Behind” might as well be made of skull fragments and burst eardrums, its heft giving way gradually to deconstructed ambience and a finale of abrasive noise. Torpor‘s first is brutal, fierce and terrifying most of all for how solidified and assured the band sounds in their aesthetic — how at home they are in the churning chaos they’ve made. Torpor on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp, at Head of Crom, Black Bow Records.
If the art wasn’t clue enough, Monsternaut‘s Monsternaut EP is a stoner rock record. Its motor revs in opener “Dog Town” and doesn’t let up until it hits the slowdown in closer “Black Horizon,” which wraps the Kerava, Finland, trio’s 18-minute debut outing with a fitting show of swing, choice basslines and nod-worthy fuckall. There’s plenty about the five tracks that will prove familiar to listeners who may have seen a record with an El Camino (admittedly, a gorgeous one) on the cover before, but there’s a next-generation freshness in Monsternaut‘s barebones, unabashed heavy rock approach, and cuts like “Back for More” and “Mountain Doom” prove deceptively catchy while also tapping tonal satisfaction in the guitar, bass and drums — Jani Kuusela‘s snare and kick landing no less heavy than Tuomas Heiskanen‘s riffs or Perttu Härkönen‘s low end — and the thud of “Caravan” and the straightforward, unpretentious vibe of all the tracks suits a presentation of genre that offers an edge of individuality while immediately doing more than just aping the band’s stylistic forebear(d)s. In heft, mood and songwriting, it’s a more than solid showcase of a progression underway. Monsternaut on Thee Facebooks, on Bandcamp.

As a first taste of the forthcoming third Valkyrie LP and first in seven years, the sampler clip of opener “Mountain Stomp” serves notice of classic rock intent and the double-guitar antics one expects from brothers Jake and Pete Adams. The record, titled Shadows, is out May 19 on Relapse, and along with the trailer and the tracklisting, the cover art by Jeremy Hush has been revealed. After so long an absence, though, it’s mostly just good to have Valkyrie up and kicking again. They’ll play the Maryland Doom Fest in June at Cafe 611 with Sixty Watt Shaman, Spirit Caravan, Apostle of Solitude and many more (info here).
The PR wire has details:
Relapse Records Details Valkyrie “Shadows” LP
Relapse Records, who is celebrating its 25th anniversary, has announced that they will be releasing a new LP from Valkyrie called Shadows on May 19th. The label is teasing the release with a trailer….
Propelled by the stunning guitar heroics of brothers Pete and Jake Adams, Virginia’s Valkyrie return with their third full length Shadows, one of the year’s best guitar-driven, heavy rock records. Jam packed with harmonized leads, rich solos and melodic, blues-based riffs, Valkyrie sound like the perfect blend of American style doom rock bands like Pentagram or Spirit Caravan and classic hard rock like Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash, and Deep Purple. Where Pete Adams’ other band Baroness focuses more on the modern proggy and poppy side of metal, Valkyrie looks to proto metal trailblazers for influence while injecting plenty of current day inspiration. Produced by Sanford Parker (Pelican, Leviathan, YOB), Shadows is the perfect summer heavy rock record!
Check out the cover art by Jeremy Hush and track listing below…
Track Listing: 1. Mountain Stomp 2. Golden Age 3. Temple 4. Shadow of Reality 5. Wintry Plains 6. Echoes (Of The Way We Lived) 7. Carry On

There’s an undercurrent of psychedelic guitar swirl to “Stormcrow,” the first streamable track to come from Foehammer‘s self-titled debut EP, which is due next month on Grimoire Records with vinyl to follow on Australopithecus Records, but you’ve gotta dig through a mountain of sludge to find it. The trio, who apparently have a thing for Lord of the Rings references (who doesn’t?), burrow deep into that mountain, and while I’ve only heard one song from the release at this point, I’m sure as hell interested to find out what else they’ve dug up from under there. Shit is heavy. Get your head ready for skull-vibrating low end, because it’s coming.
Here there be heft, delivered via PR wire:
Foehammer – S/T – out 04/07/15 on Grimoire Records
Hailing from the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, Foehammer’s music belies its bustling surroundings. Rather, Foehammer conjure the creeping tectonic progression of transform faults, culminating in releases of sound waves the magnitude of which is best measured by seismometers. In keeping with the appropriate timescale, each of the three funeral doom epics on Foehammer’s debut EP clock in past the 9 minute mark. Foehammer is doom metal in the truest sense of the appellation, crushing, unrelenting and suffused with a foreboding of cataclysm that smothers each of the EP’s all-to-brief 34 minutes. Foehammer’s rupturing first salvo will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Grief, Warhorse, Corrupted, Hell, Buried at Sea and other purveyors of the slow.
Foehammer will be released in partnership between Baltimore’s Grimoire Records (CD/pro-cassette/digital download) and Arlington, VA’s Australopithecus Records (Vinyl). CD, tape and digital versions are available through Grimoire Records on April 7th. The initial pressing of 250 hand-numbered copies (50 clear, 200 black) is currently available for pre-order through Australopithecus Records with an expected ship date of mid-May.”
The teaser track can be streamed here, along with album credits, photos of the CD and cassette, etc.
“Foehammer” is out 04/07/15 in CD/pro-cassette/digital download through Grimoire Records.

Well, there’s good news and good news. The good news is Richmond, Virginia, trio Druglord are heading out for a round of dates headed north between April 4 and 10. They’re also playing twice this month in VA, with Medieval Steel and Elder, respectively, which marks a return from half a year of stage absence. They need a show somewhere in the Delaware-to-NYC range for April 6 — calling The Depot in York, PA! — but other than that, it’s booked solid and looks like it’ll be cool time.
Meanwhile, the good news is that Druglord will also have a split out later this year with the doomly Sinister Haze. It’ll be an LP on STB Records, who also released Druglord‘s 2014 full-length, Enter Venus (review here) — a second pressing of which, on purple vinyl, is also coming soon — and is set to release sometime in the coming months. Druglord are also putting out a special CD compilation for this tour with Enter Venus and their prior full-length, 2011’s Motherfucker Rising (review here), of which I’ll just hope they wind up with a couple left over so they might sell them online for those of us not in the tour radius.
Their update goes a little something like this:
After a 6 month break from playing shows, DRUGLORD will be hitting the road with some East Coast dates in April. A couple before that too. Short but sweet. We will have some special tour only merch as well, plus a new CD package with both our LPs on it. Also good time to mention our upcoming split LP with Sinister Haze, out later this year on STB Records of course. Help with April 6 if you can! That’s it for now…
March 13- Riffhouse, Chesapeake,VA w/ Medieval Steel March 27- Strange Matter, RVA w/ Elder and Sinister Haze April 4: Guido’s Speakeasy, Frederick, MD metal night April 5: 1984 club in Wilmington, DE with TITHONUS April 6: open- need show-DC,Baltimore, anywhere close to NYC April 7: NYC at Don Pedro with Heth and Jed and Huldra April 8: the Boneyard in Atlantic City with SHRINER April 9: Kung Fu Necktie in Philly with Lord Almighty April 10: Clash Bar in New Jersey

Unmistakably good news today from the camp of Richmond, Virginia, five-piece Windhand, as it’s announced they have entered the studio to work with producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Nebula, on and on) on their third album. The record has been given a tentative due date of Fall 2015, and I’d be surprised if Windhand didn’t hit that mark, since if their itinerary for their Relapse debut and sophomore outing, 2013’s Soma (review here), is any basis for judgment, they’ll likely already have tours booked before the record is released.
All the better. The response to Soma was massive, so anticipation for the follow-up will be likewise high. In the last year-plus, though, the band have become veterans of fests like Roadburn, Day of the Shred, Scion Rock Fest and others, in addition to putting in considerable road time on their own, headlining and supporting, their wash of volume and riffs finding welcome on a frighteningly close to universal scale. Seems like they’re working quick to get back in the studio, but you won’t hear me complain.
They’ve also got some shows in Atlanta with a little band called Sleep in May. Here’s the news, freshly hoisted from the PR wire:
WINDHAND ENTER THE STUDIO WITH JACK ENDINO TO RECORD NEW ALBUM OUT THIS FALL ON RELAPSE RECORDS
Richmond, VA psychedelic doomsters WINDHAND have entered the studio with legendary producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, High on Fire). The band is recording their highly anticipated third full-length album at Soundhouse Recording in Seattle, WA. The currently untitled album will see a fall release via Relapse Records and promises to be their most ambitious record to date. The album will contain nine songs including titles like “Two Urns”, “Hyperion” and “Kingfisher”.
Additionally, the group has confirmed two Atlanta shows with Sleep this May.
Stay tuned for more info on WINDHAND.
WINDHAND US LIVE DATES: May 3 – Atlanta, GA The Masquerade ^ May 4 – Atlanta, GA Center Stage Theatre ^

Virginian stylemashers Inter Arma received no shortage of praise for 2014’s single-song EP, The Cavern, but seem keen not so much to rest on those laurels as to pummel them into the ground. Fitting. They’ll head out with grinders Yautja on April 10 for a month-plus of touring that will cap off with an appearance at Maryland Death Fest on May 23. It is not an insignificant run.
Already veterans of Roadburn and Gilead Fest, Inter Arma will continue to add notches to their collective belt throughout the year, and no doubt by the time this tour is over they’ll be ready to knock MDF on its ass. So be it. Worth going just for the chance to pick up The Cavern on CD from the band.
The PR wire:
Inter Arma Announce North American Tour Dates with Yautja
The Cavern EP Available Now
Richmond, VA genre-destroying metallers INTER ARMA have announced a five week North American Tour with deliciously dark, Nashville metallers YAUTJA. The dates kick off April 10th in Philadelphia, PA and end May 18th in Nashville, TN followed by a stop at the renowned Maryland Deathfest. A complete listing of tour dates is available below.
INTER ARMA recently released a critically acclaimed 45+ minute, single song EP entitled The Cavern. Originally written during the summer of 2009, but reworked and perfected over the last few years, The Cavern was recorded in 2013 during breaks from the relentless touring the band did with the likes of Baroness, Russian Circles, Ulcerate and numerous others. The recording was captured with producer Mikey Allred at Dark Art Studios in Madison, TN, the same surroundings and setup that captured 2013’s monolithic Sky Burial. Both records can be streamed via their official BandcampHERE.
