NORTHLESS – LAST BASTION OF COWARDICE 2LP pre-orders available now!

NORTHLESS – LAST BASTION OF COWARDICE 2LP pre-orders available now!

Since the band’s inception in 2007, Milwaukee’s Northless has been at the forefront of all things sludgy, noisy, and misanthropic. Now in their tenth year, the band brings us their newest full-length, Last Bastion of Cowardice, in partnership with Gilead Media & Halo of Flies (vinyl), Hand of Death (tape), and Init Records (CD).

Throughout the last decade, Northless has honed in on many of the darkest parts of the human condition as inspiration for their brooding, heavy dirges. Previous full-length albums Clandestine Abuse (2011) and World Keeps Sinking (2013) both touched on topics both intensely personal and universally identifiable, while this new record achieves a similar darkness by way of a conceptual narrative. Last Bastion of Cowardice tells a dark tale of revenge, sorrow, and redemption denied, as the protagonist learns the true wage of sin. To work in concert with these themes the band pushed sonically in many different directions to extremes previously unrealized by Northless. Dynamic, emotional, and expressive approaches are more varied than before through heavy nods to death metal, noise rock, and post rock.

Northless has always been known as a band that possesses incredible tone in their sound, an effort which is supported with the assistance of long-time collaborator and engineer Shane Hochstetler at Howl Street Studios, who recorded and mixed the album before sending it off to be mastered by Carl Saff. The theme of the album is tied in visually with artwork created by Paul Jeffrey.

Last Bastion of Cowardice will be available on November 17th.

Yellow Eyes and Pyrolatrous pre-orders available now.

The new full-length album from Yellow Eyes is available to pre-order now on CD/LP.

Immersion Trench Reverie brims with a familiar shimmering resonance, but infused throughout is an aura of exigency in the songwriting. And so the hallucinatory melancholy of Yellow Eyes is cast in strange new light.

Pre-order now at the Gilead Media bandcamp page. Euro pre-orders coming soon from Dry Cough & Deathwish Inc EU.

 

The debut CD/2LP from the Brooklyn blackened death project PYROLATROUS is now available for pre-order. Featuring members of HULL, Krallice, and Anicon, a great deal of Pyrolatrous’ style is influenced by classic black and death metal, utilizing both sweeping, blasting tremolo passages and powerfully technical riff / percussion interplay.

Oshkosh Area Humane Society Fundraiser!

Oshkosh Area Humane Society Fundraiser!

 

Hey everyone! As many of you know, my partner Cari lives her life to help animals in need. Her work at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (a certified non profit) is unparalleled in the region. And although she’s real modest about it, I have no problem saying that her own personal skills and talents in working with animals are exceptional, to say the least.

Well, this weekend is the OAHS yearly fundraiser. They need to raise enough money tomorrow (Saturday) to fund all of their medical expenses for the next year. And those expenses are considerable. Their live release rate is astonishingly high, often between 95%-100%. Which means almost every animal that comes through the door is getting the care it needs to be on its way to a new home.

And each and every animal they take in is in need of some type of care, be it medical or a behavior modification program (Cari’s particular area of expertise.) So all money spent supporting the Oshkosh Area Humane Society helps, and is proven to work through their incredible live release rate.

OAHS is a huge asset to the community, so if you can help in any way, please do. I donated $100 from Eroding Winds and $100 from Gilead Media. I put my money where my mouth is. And I’ll enjoy eating PBJs twice a day for the rest of the year so that these little furry friends can have a chance to live a happy, healthy life.
