Recorded over a two evening NYC headlining stint at both NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg last winter, Spitting Fire Live showcases HIGH ON FIRE at its incendiary best, containing songs from each of the band’s critically acclaimed studio albums including last year’s celebrated De Vermis Mysteriis.

The group features vocalist and cult guitar hero Matt Pike — also a founding member of the famed underground band SLEEP — along with powerhouse drummer Des Kensel and talented bassist Jeff MatzPike was named as one of Rolling Stone‘s “New Guitar Gods” and is one of rock’s most charismatic figures. HIGH ON FIRE‘s latest album De Vermis Mysteriis was released on April 3, 2012.

IN SOLITUDE Premiere New Single

Head over to the Deciblog to check out the new single “Pallid Hands” from Swedish classic heavy metal band, In Solitude. The band’s new album Sister is dropping in North America on 10/01 and will be available to fans digitally, on CD, and 180gram black vinyl. Fans can check out the first single and title track “Sister” at MetalBlade.com/InSolitude.

Fans can also pick up the upcoming issue of Decibel Magazine, November issue #109 – out October 3, which features In Solitude on the cover which was shot by internationally-renowned metal and rock photographer Ester Segarra in Sweden. If you aren’t already a subscriber you can check your local bookstore or order from Decibel directly at the following location.

“Sister” was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Sweden during March 2013. The album was produced and mixed by Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and stands as a logical next step above and beyond its predecessor, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil.” In Solitude’s strength resides in their ability to craft dark and oppressive atmospheres within the auditory realm of classic heavy metal. “Sister” compounds this trademark sound further, beginning with the acoustic intro, “He Comes,” and saturates the record in an aura of uniqueness; see: “Lavender” and the title track.

The album concludes with an 8-minute, driving, near trance-like opus that features guest guitarist Pelle Forsberg (Watain). Additionally, Jarboe of Swans fame can be heard on “Horses in the Ground.” Moods range from Mercyful Fate-esque guitar flavors, shadows of Black Sabbath, the heavy dissonance of Swans, to straightforward, earworm riffs. In any case, one thing can be said for certain: their delivery is as genuine as it is impressive.

North American fans will have an opportunity to see In Solitude live this Fall. The band will be supporting Watain on their “Wild Hunt” tour beginning on October 8th in New York City. The tour also features support from Tribulation. Dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/insolitudeofficial.

MONSTER MAGNET New Song, Announce Tour with ROYAL THUNDER, ZODIAC

MONSTER MAGNET will be releasing their new album Last Patrol October 15 via Napalm Records. Dave Wyndorf and Phil Caivano produced Last Patrol, while Evil Joe Barresi mixed the album with additional production duties handled by Matt Hyde. The artwork was created by John Sumrow with consultation coming from Chris Ryall and designs by Ryan Clark for Invisible Creatures Inc. The album will be available as a Limited Edition Digipak which contains two bonus tracks, standard CD, 2LP and digital format. The album is available for pre-order on Amazon.

Today MONSTER MAGNET has teamed up with Crave Online for an exclusive premiere of a new track from Last Patrol.  Get a first listen to the song “Mindless Ones” HERE.

In support of Last Patrol, MONSTER MAGNETwill be embarking on a full-blown North American Tour!  Although the band has toured Europe relentlessly over the past decade, this is MONSTER MAGNET‘s first full North American tour in over 10 years!  The band is eager to hit the road in the states for the first time in what seems like forever. Prepare to hear MONSTER MAGNET classics and new cuts from Last Patrol for the first time live! Support will come from Royal Thunder and Zodiac. The tour is scheduled to kick off November 14 in Grand Rapids, MI and will run through December 14 in New York, NY.

Frontman and MONSTER MAGNET mastermind Dave Wyndorf checked in with his thoughts about Last Patrol:

Last Patrol is a return to our roots in terms of vibe and recording style. It’s full-on psychedelic space-rock with a 60’s garage feel, recorded almost exclusively with vintage guitars, amps and effects in our hometown of Red Bank, NJ. The songs are a kind of Space-Noir, tales of cosmic revenge, peaking libidos, alienation and epic strangeness. It’s a weird trip through the back alleys of a dark, retro-future, which not by coincidence very much resembles my own life. (laughs) The lyrics aren’t fantasy really, rather a recounting of my musings on, observations of and general emotional reaction to my life and environment during a 1 week writing period in February of 2013. But I tend to use the vernacular and imagery of science fiction and surrealism to express myself and that’s where these lyrics get trippy. There’s also our cover version of Donovan’s “Three Kingfishers” which I thought fit the mood of the album.”

Last Patrol was produced by Phil Caivano and myself with an effort to bring a home grown feel to the whole affair. We had been doing smaller projects out of Phil’s “Studio 13″ recording space and I really felt comfortable there so it was the natural choice on where to record the next full-scale Monster Magnet album. Phil and I grew up together and have a shared love of some very particular vintage music and styles. And everybody in the band played their asses off on this one.”

Check out a stream of the song “The Duke” HERE.

1)    I Live Behind the Clouds

2)    Last Patrol

3)    Three King Fishers

4)    Paradise

ESOTERIC to Embark on North American Tour

Legendary UK doom pioneers ESOTERIC have revealed more details about their forthcoming North American tour, and added additional dates. The tour, which starts on September 20 in Soda Springs, CA, will run for two weeks before ending on October 5 in Cambridge, MA. New tour dates have been announced in Chicago, IL at Reggie’s and Cambridge MA, at T.T. The Bear’s Place. The tour will see support from Saturnalia Temple (SWE) and Velnias (CO). A full list of tour dates can be found below.

ESOTERIC recently announced a rare appearance at this year’s Stella Natura Festival. The Stella Natura festival runs from September 20 through the 22 and is located in the Sierra Nevada’s Tahoe National Forest. The festival will see ESOTERIC perform alongside bands like WARDRUNA (NO), STARGAZER (AU), JARBOE, LOSS, WORM OUROBOROS, and more. Further information can be found at the Stella Natura website.

ESOTERIC is touring in support of their latest album, titled ‘Paragon of Dissonance’ (November,  2011) The album is streaming in its entirety at the official ESOTERIC Bandcamp page.

ESOTERIC trace their underground roots back to 1992. The Birmingham, UK-based outfit have been pushing the limits of sonic intensity for more than 20 years. From the mind-bending darkness of their 90’s double albums ‘Epistemological Despondency’ and the ‘Pernicious Enigma’, to the expansive epic doom found on their new album ‘Paragon of Dissonance’, ESOTERIC have never compromised their initial aim – to drown unsuspecting listeners in an oppresive ocean of distortion.
