The noise/experimental project premiered a music video from their forthcoming record, Ironworks. The video track, titled 1870-1906 is now streaming via Cvlt Nation.

The album, an ode to the death of the American dream, was recorded in a late 19th century/20th century blacksmith shop. Pre-order Ironworks through the Season of Mist E-Shop. Ironworks was originally only released as an LP.

Tracklisting:

1. 1870-1906

2. Tasks Which Destroy Body And Soul

3. God Says To Love You In Chains

4. A Promised Eternity Fulfilled With Cancer

5. Into Her, She Carved The Word Empty

6. I Draw My Strength From You

Masterminded by Michael Bjella, GOG toiled in the underground noise community for a decade, releasing records that have been widely respected and regarded as essential in experimental/noise/soundscape circles.

On the band, Michael Bjella states:

“I started GOG to explore the darker sides of thought and life. I want to create things without restriction and form that can transport people and possibly make them confront their own fears. Things that are truly dark but have contrast. To borrow a line from one of my favorite artists, in case there might be harmony, then it is the harmony of accident, of chaos. I’m not trying to make harmony.”

“At its darkest, Gog is an imposing glorification of nothing. At its brightest, Gog is our saviour. A swirling vortex of white and black, virtue and nihil, that finds equilibrium in entrancing drone” – LURKERS PATH

LESBIAN Streaming Full Album

LESBIAN‘s third full length offering and Translation Loss debut Forestelevison is a single song, 44+ minute all-encompassing force of nature! Never has an album sifted through the deepest trenches of prog-influenced epic-doom and blackened metal to produce such an awe-inspiring aural assault to the senses. Recorded at Avast! Studios with long time producing collaborator Randall Dunn (Wolves in the Throne Room, Earth, Boris) and featuring gorgeous artwork by Arik Roper, Forestelevison will see a June 25 release on CD (Digipack), Digital and 2xLP. The 2xLP version will come housed in deluxe gatefold packaging and include an exclusive Vinyl-only extended outro-bonus track! The album is available for pre-order HERE.

Over the past weeks, LESBIAN teamed up with different outlets to premiere segments of their new opus Forestelevsion. The album is presented as a whole for the first time online courtesy of CVLT Nation HERE.

Consisting of guitarists Arran McInnis and Daniel La Rochelle, bassist/vocalist Dorando Hodous and drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy, LESBIAN has grown accustomed to composing lengthy eclectic journeys that take the listener through myriad genres ranging anywhere from doom to prog to psyche to 70s rock to black metal to grunge and beyond. Forestelevison continues LESBIAN’S music genre-defying journey from their prior full-length on Holy Mountain Records called Power Hor, a split 10″ with Ocean on Roadburn Records, a self-released two song tour EP, and a second full-length on Important Records called Stratospheria Cubensis.

Tracklisting:

1.     Forestelevison

THE DEVIL’S BLOOD To Release Final Album

The Devil’s Blood announced at the beginning of 2013 that they have “returned to nothingness.” At the same time, they announced that plans had already been put into motion to release new material. The new seven song album, III: Tabula Rasa or Death and the Seven Pillars, will serve as the band’s final full-length release. A new track, White Storm of Teeth, has been made available for streaming at metalblade.com/thedevilsblood, where fans can also pre-order the album, and view the art, which was done by Manuel Tinnemans. III: Tabula Rasa or Death and the Seven Pillars will be available for purchase on iTunes April 30, via all other digital outlets (Google Play, Amazon MP3, etc.) on May 28, and on CD and vinyl June 11.

SL comments on the release:

“Prior to our disbanding on the 22nd of January 2013 we had been active with the pre-production of what was to be our third album. 7 songs, the complete outline of the album, had been, in humble form, recorded in my home recording studio and these demos were supposed to be the template for our studio recordings. Obviously we would never make it that far and the initial shock of that fact saddened us greatly. After but a few days we listened to this material again and decided that even though the audio quality might not be what people have come to expect from a The Devil’s Blood release, the song material was and is the best we have ever done. We came to the conclusion that these songs deserve to become a part of The Canon and that we would release them as is.”

“I spent a few days gathering all the demo material together, made a very simple mix and gave the material to our friend and mentor Pieter G. Kloos to master in his studio. Here we present you with the titles of the material and the artwork which was done by Manuel Tinnemans.”

“The song we have chosen to release now is White Storm of Teeth. More so than the other material this song speaks to the completion and transubstantiation that always follows an Occult path. Not the end of a journey but the start of a completely new one. Built around thirteen stanzas in the first part and thirteen stanzas in the second part the process of inner enlightenment through confusion and entropy and the initiation through the Death of the lower self is illustrated. This theme is rampant throughout the record and its lyrics but here it culminates and completely devours itself. After this work no words are needed and, on the album, none are offered.

“The Devil’s Blood has always been an entity that defied any fealty or thankfulness towards any earthly influence. But we as people need not hold to this paradigm any longer. We therefore wish to express our sincere thankfulness to all those who have supported this weird quest and have made the earthly woes to not work against us. You most definitely know who you are.

“The record will be released by Ván Records in Europe and the rest of the World and by Metal Blade in North America. It will be available as digital download, CD and LP starting the 30th of April in Europe and a date soon to be announced in the USA/CAN. With thankfulness and a glad heart filled with the pride of a work well done,

“F The Mouth Of Satan does not speak onstage. F The Mouth Of Satan does not give interviews. The only sounds that escape her larynx in public are the rich, silvery tones of her exquisite singing voice. Part Grace Slick, part Ann Wilson, she sounds like she should be haunting the soundtracks of some long-lost Italian horror flick from the 1970s” – Terrorizer

“Dutch rockers The Devil’s Blood bring to mind what Jefferson Airplane‘s sound would have been if they abandoned their love of psychedelic drugs for good old-fashioned Satanism” – LA Weekly

“a dense tapestry of elements both sanguine and chaotic, hypnotic and variable, fragile and durable” – BloodyGoodHorror.com
