LAE - First Single From Upcoming Debut Album Available For Streaming

Montreal-based post-rock quintet, Lae, featuring in its ranks Steve Austin of Today Is The Day, prepares to release its Break The Clasp debut this Autumn, the first single from the LP has been made available to the public and you can hear it at this location. The diverse track, "Sister," shows both the beautiful, peaceful delivery and accessible elements this crew of fantastic songwriters display through the entire album. It also reveals the polar opposite second personality of Lae, as the clean guitars, organs and vocals give way to wounding, caustic vocals and massive-sounding electric guitar riffs thundering through the mix. Break The Clasp will see release through The Compound and Battleground Records via digital download and 6-panel digipak on 25th November, and a deluxe 180-gram double LP in February 2015 as the band begins touring throughout North America. CD preorders are now available at this location, and digital preorders via Bandcamp will be made available on Halloween. Link

TAAKE - Debuts Track And Reveals Details Of Upcoming Album

With the traditional three year wait between Taake albums now over, Dark Essence Records has today announced the first details of what will be the iconic Norwegian band's sixth full-length album. Titled Stridens Hus, the seven-track album is set for release on the 8th December world-wide, with the exception of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where the album will appear on the 12th of the month. The label has also debuted the track "Det fins en Prins" from the album and it can be heard in the Soundcloud player below. With a career spanning over two decades, Hoest has always remained faithful to his trademark Helnorsk Svartmetall sound, but he has never allowed the grass to grow under his feet, and, with each release, he has breathed new life into an often stale and derivative genre;  his unique and innovative twists ensuring that black metal still remains fresh and relevant today. And Stridens Hus is no exception. Parts of the album demonstrate a groove and rock sound, whilst others dsiplay a distinctly punk attitude. But the whole is without a doubt unmistakably Hoest's Taake: varied, intense, unique and unpredictable. Tracklist and cover artwork are as well below. Taake is currently in the middle of the Kulde Tour which will end on the 26th October (check the dates over HERE). Other confirmed upcoming shows as follows: 14 Nov: Black Flames of Blasphemy Festival, Helsinki, FI, 05 Dec: John Dee, Oslo, NO. 2015: 14 -18 Jan, Mexico, details TBA, 23 Jan: Hulen, Bergen, NO, 01 May: Karmøygeddon Festival, Koppervik, NO, 25 Jul, Stonehenge Festival, Steenwijk, NL, 14 Aug, Rockstadt Extreme Fest, Rasnov RO.

The clock stroke Mitternacht (English: midnight) and the queen of sorrow, enigmatic and spiritual visible ghost Anna-Varney Cantodea and her shadows woke up from eternal sleep and presented the 12th full length studio release by the always mournful Sopor Aeternus & The Enseble Of Shadows. There seems to be three aspects of endless sorrow on Mitternacht; one stripped of everything and just existing per sé, one slowly slipping into a world of deeply disturbing derangement and one, drawing a feeling you've reached a point when you are hurting so much, you can't even feel it; you can't shed a tear or say a word. You simply give into your pain, accept your surroundings and it brings you some inner peace and even a glimpse of joy. Anna-Varney's vocals are – as usual-  a big and important part of the overall ambiance, because her signature, dramatic, expressing style of singing is so unique and such a great part of Sopor's music. The symbiosis between delivered melodies and her darkish, twisted, sometimes wicked and at other occasions playful vocal work is impeccable and blends together in a perfect equilibrium. Its sundscapes portray the non compos mentis cycle of grief, pain and death, which travels slowly and anxiously into light, hope and life. It will open your old wounds and they will bleed again; it will awake your deepest fears and bring to surface your most painful memories, twisting the knife deeper into your bleeding heart and slowly dying soul.
