Graves At Sea / Sourvein SplitTwo of doom metal's mightiest of feedback-laden riff worshippers - Portland's GRAVES AT SEA and Cape Fear's SOURVEIN - have united in sound, mind and spirit for the ultimate split of earth-smoldering amplifier worship.
GRAVES AT SEA, whose contributions leave an eerie aura complete with tortured vocals, foreboding composition, and a general sense of dread, occupy Side A. Recorded by Billy Anderson, (Melvins, Sleep, Neurosis) "Betting On Black" and "Confession" finds the all-consuming sludge for which the band is notorious, flooding in amongst the tortured howls and shrieks of vocalist Nathan Misterek.
SOURVEIN, who've now existed for two decades of distortion, damage and total doom, solidify Side B. With three songs produced and recorded by Mike Dean Of Corrosion of Conformity, these odes of heavy combine toxic riffs, grooves and just the right amount of psychedelic appeal.1.

Drone MachinesWhat started out as the design and build of his Master’s thesis at the University of California, San Diego, the DRONE MACHINES soon become the subject matter of Tristan Shone’s third album.
For those unaware, AUTHOR & PUNISHER is an industrial doom metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines are designed to require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding doom influenced sounds that are created.
“DRONE MACHINES” is the heaviest of the A&P albums and also the longest at around 70 minutes.1. Doppler

Ritual Of PassingLong Awaited Vinyl Version Of Atriarch’s Epic Masterpiece.
Portland, Oregon’s Atriarch are one of the most intriguing bands in today’s underground scene, honing over the last few years a unique amalgamation of death rock, classic ’80s goth, doom and black metal. Their 2011 album Forever the End was a promising debut, and the group further developed their sound on the recent split LP with comrades Alaric, released last May on 20 Buck Spin.
Atriarch finds their true sonic calling on their sophomore full-length Ritual of Passing. Delivering tenfold on the potential of the previous two releases, the album is marked by an altogether heavier sound, more deep and substantive. Atriarch draws inspiration from such legendary bands as Christian Death, Bauhaus, Rudimentary Peni and Killing Joke, as well as more recent groups like The Gault, Asunder and Burzum, adding their own twist for a unique take on a classic sound. A stirring, mesmerizing work, Ritual of Passing proves Atriarch is a force to be reckoned with in America’s underground heavy music scene.1. Parasite

xAuthor & Punisher
Women & ChildrenWest Coast-based AUTHOR & PUNISHER, the long-running, one-man industrial doom project propagated by iconic sound contortionist Tristan Shone, is pleased to announce his fifth and latest creation of audio rebellion. Titled Women & Children, the follow up to last year’s critically lauded Ursus Americanus full-length further challenges the traditional confines of extreme music with eight tracks of audio exploration and mechanical decomposition.
Shone elaborates: “AUTHOR & PUNISHER’s newest sonic endeavor combines elements of both machines and more traditional apparati to stretch and blur the dynamic palette from doom to industrial, to heavy bass music, and back again.”
Adds Seventh Rule Recordings label head Scott Flaster: “The new AUTHOR & PUNISHER? On first listen I was thrown into a grey world where the bleakness of early industrial music layered with a heavier contemporary dirge. ”1. Women & Children

The Unquiet SkySince the early 80's when bands like Cathedral and Saint Vitus pioneered the "doom" genre of metal, the style has continuously evolved and spread, despite being far less recognized and appreciated than most other forms of more traditional heavy metal. Bands like Eyehategod and Crowbar melded elements of doom into sludge and stoner metal, gaining modest success in the more mainstream metal community, but doom is beginning to enjoy a new wave of popularity, thanks largely to the more progressive experimental work of artists like Stephen O'Malley (Sunn0))), Burning Witch). Indian is a Chicago-based trio whose brand of doom is more akin to that of Eyehategod than the earliest or latest incarnations of the genre, and their distinctively black metal vocals immediately set them apart from the pack.
First things first: The Unquiet Sky is everything a doom record should be. The bass tone is so perfect and intense that it could shake your body through a pair of headphones. The guitars bring Black Sabbath-esque fuzz down enough notches to kill a horse. The percussion is sparse when it needs to be ("Ration") and energetic when it's allowed ("Tied and Gagged"). Dylan O'Toole's vocals give Indian the extra edge over many of the other bands who have perfected this formula by complementing the melancholy created by the music with a demonic voice of evil. There is even an extended track of terrifyingly psychedelic feedback, perfectly placed to scare the crap out of you when you're high. In fact, the only thing that fails to be suitably doom-y and evil about this record is the cover illustration of a Christ-like baboon which, despite being evil enough in spirit, looks a bit too much like it was drawn in a junior high art class.
This record is an easy recommend for fans of the "doom" genre, but what about anyone unacquainted with the genre I personally don't consider myself a huge aficionado of the style, but loved this record. The only things required to enjoy The Unquiet Sky are an attention span and a love of all things metal. This record generally moves slowly, as does most doom, but it is far less droning and repetitive than many recent examples of the genre. As the name of the style suggests, doom is, by its very nature, dark, oppressive music. As such, Indian is definitely better suited to being digested over an extended period of time at high volumes, rather than short bursts in your car or through headphones.
Bottom Line: If you're searching for the latest, greatest doom record to add to your collection, look no further than Indian's The Unquiet Sky. Fans of Neurosis, Eyehategod and Godflesh should also definitely pick this up. It's a solid record from beginning to end from an up-and-coming trio of doom virtuosos.

Horrible ChamberGnaw is a New York quintet featuring former Khanate belligerent Alan Dubin. "Water Rite"-- the first philippic from their forthcoming second LP Horrible Chamber-- is a delightful seven-minute span of punishment. As drums splatter against a multi-dimensional electronic framework, crisscrossing howls and ghoulish utterances suggest Pere Ubu jamming with Wolf Eyes on the bow of a sinking ship. Dubin’s venomous speak-sing has lost nothing since Khanate's heyday, but with Gnaw, his stately menace is replaced by red-eyed paranoia.

When All Became None (Out Of Stock)Indianapolis, Indiana's Coffinworm made an impact in 2009 with their Great Bringer of Night demo (recorded by The Gates of Slumber drummer Bob Fouts), hailed by a number of publications as one of the best metal demos of the year. The band's vicious and unforgiving combination of sludge, doom, death, and black metal possesses a depraved aura of terror. Coffinworm's proper full-length debut, When All Became None, will undoubtedly go down as one of the darkest and most powerful sludge metal album's of all time. Through thick walls of reverb and feedback, the band unleashes massive, monolithic riffs while vocalist Dave Britt's offers up a throat-searing assault. Captured by Sanford Parker, this sonic nightmare of unholy proportions delivers to the utmost devastating and blasphemous degree.1. Blood Born Doom
