Low Flying Hawks share new video for 'Ruins' via Terrorizer Magazine | New album Kōfuku released next month on Magnetic Eye Records


Magnetic Eye Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Low Flying Hawks, and with it the release of their debut album Kōfuku in February 2016.

Working with producer Toshi Kasai (Big Business) at Sounds of Sirens studio in LA, and featuring Trevor Dunn (Mr Bungle, Melvins) and Dale Crover (Melvins, Nirvana) on drums, Low Flying Hawks is a project that consists chiefly of longtime collaborators and enigmatic multi-instrumentalists EHA and AAL.

Compellingly dark in content and undeniably heavy in tone, Kōfuku – which comes from the Japanese word for ‘Surrender’ – has the ability to both satisfy and mollify listeners with an unerring confidence, that over ten tracks draws in funereal doom, gray echoes and psychedelic waves of post-rock disorder. A work that in no small part is informed by a diverse array of influences which include the likes of Richard D James, Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and bands such as Black Sabbath and My Bloody Valentine.

Album highlight ‘Ruins’ stands tall as a gripping arrangement that merges metal, rock and roll and crawling, corporeal drumming with the lysergic/elegiac mirrors in songwriter EHA’s mind. Whereas prolonged pieces such as ‘Wolves Within Wolves’ and ‘Destruction Complete’ explore profound themes such as loss and rebirth, amid the dramatic hefts in mood and guitar play that switch freely between seismic drone; noise-rock and shoegaze. All of which make Kōfuku a remarkably moving experience.

Kōfuku by Low Flying Hawks will be released on 12th February 2016 through the New York-based label, Magnetic Eye Records.

SLUDGE LORDS NORTH TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM 'LIGHT THE WAY' ON MARCH 18

Arizona trio confirmed to support Intronaut on spring tour; Tucson record release show announced
 
In the decade-plus they’ve been a band, the Tucson, Ariz.-based trio NORTH has ebbed and flowed their way into becoming one of the most respected outfits in the underground metal scene. Despite a series of lineup changes and personal setbacks, NORTH has returned stronger and more focused than ever on their debut full-length release for Prosthetic Records, "Light The Way." 

One week prior to the album's March 18 worldwide release, the band will play a hometown record release show at Tucson's Club Congress before embarking on a North American jaunt with Intronaut. A full listing of dates can be found listed below. Tickets are available via https://www.facebook.com/NorthAZ/.

Originally starting off in 2005 as an instrumental act, NORTH has continued to push the boundaries of the heavier side of post-rock. Formed by Evan Leek (bass) and Zack Hansen (drums) and rounded out by guitarists Ty Engle and Matt Mutterperl, the band’s first recordings were done in Hansen’s bedroom and self-released. With their debut 2006 EP "Siberia," they soon made a name for themselves in the Arizona scene, supporting others in the genre such as Caspian, Tera Melos and This Will Destroy You on those bands’ southwestern tour stops.

Eventually, the group decided to expand the sound of the band, adding vocals on 2008’s "What You Were," which was met with critical acclaim and expanded touring throughout the U.S. When it came time for the band to begin work on their next record, numerous line-up changes occurred. Writing stopped, started, stopped again and at times the band wondered if it would ever restart again. Amazingly enough, this turmoil produced their best material to date. "The Great Silence," released in the summer of 2012, was a compelling fusion of post-rock and metal and garnered their finest reviews yet. The band toured for a year to support the album, but after two members left the group, NORTH once again questioned its future.

The three remaining members, Leek, Hansen and Mutterperl, regrouped and sat down to write for the first time as a three-piece and found the chemistry the best it had ever been. Four tracks came together quickly, which was released as the "Metanoia" EP, and the guys did what they do best: play live. There seemed to be a genuine rebirth in the band as they embarked their most extensive touring to date. It was shortly after this that the group signed to Prosthetic Records – which reissued "Metanoia" and "Siberia" last year – and quickly began working on new material, not wanting to lose the momentum they were feeling. The two-track single, "Through Raven’s Eyes," recorded in early 2015, saw the band at possibly its darkest and heaviest, musically speaking. Now, with "Light The Way," NORTH begins a new chapter – one that kicks off with the highest-profile shows of the band's career.

Digital preorders are available via iTunes, which include an instant gratification download of the track "Wake Up," HERE.
 
CONNY OCHS and labelmate Friedemann will celebrate a series of record release shows together surrounding the release of both of their new LPs, with shows across Germany in Leipzig, Quedlinburg, Herzberg and Dresden February 18th through 21st.
 
CONNY OCHS Double Record Release Shows w/ Friedemann:
2/18/2016 UT Connewitz - Leipzig, DE
2/19/2016 Reichstrasse - Quedlinburg, DE
2/20/2016 P-Party - Herzberg, DE

Earlier in 2015, having released Freedom Conspiracy (Exile On Mainstream) with fellow Scott "Wino" Weinrich (St. Vitus, The Obsessed, Shrinebuilder) and completed some touring across Europe, CONNY OCHS returned to the studio at the end of the Summer, once again with producer/engineer/studio owner Thommy Krawallo, with whom his previous album, Black Happy and both collaborative albums with Wino were created in full analog fashion. The Kabumm Studio had just relocated from its historic location in a former East German and Soviet government radio complex in Berlin, to the wilderness of a rural Brandenburg village. OCHS went in with a bag full of sketches and licks, inhaling the raw atmosphere of the surroundings, a yet unfinished house full of instruments and equipment in the middle of nowhere, also trying to find its place. This unstable environment birthed a new start for him, letting in much more than a breeze of fresh air by widening his instrumental repertoire to drums, electric guitars, piano, bass and organ. The lyrics and stories circulate more than ever around people encountered and journeys undertaken over the past years - the album title referring to our tendency to give an unwritten future some kind of tangibility through dreams and visions.
 
CONNY OCHS struck out on his own as a solo musician at the turn of the millennium, after having spent many years fronting heavier bands (such as Zombie Joe, Baby Universal) in his native Germany. The artist's solitary venture saw him make a marked departure from the direct sounds of modern rock, letting the influences of revered folk singer/songwriters like Woodie Guthrie, Townes van Zandt, Nick Drake and others inform his firm new direction across the course of multiple solo LPs and collaborations. Alongside his savvy combinations of acoustic and electric guitars, OCHS owns an incredibly natural voice; soulful and dynamic, with a clean style that can bring about absolute joy, or of purely melancholic end-time inner blues. His songs focus on the interplay between storytelling and visions - this he carves into the rough edges of his organic and sparkling music. Keeping his approach pure and from the heart, CONNY OCHS reaches a stark authenticity that draws you in and makes you a part of the music, his travels and struggles, and his search for freedom in life and song.

Thunderous sludge warriors DEADSMOKE to release self-titled album this March on Heavy Psych Sounds


After they won their spurs at last year's Duna Jam festival, Italian doom and gloom merchants DEADSMOKE are set to release their tenebrous, thunderous self-titled debut LP on Heavy Psych Sounds. Discover the artwork and a first song off "Deadsmoke" now.
 
 
Get drowned into the darkness with new track Liar Behind Me 
 
 
DEADSMOKE is a newcoming yet promising Italian sludge outfit who sounds like amplifiers buried in the deep, with down-tuned monolithic guitar riff scraping the soil down to the core of the earth. Slow, hypnotic, dissonant cadences recall the eternal need for isolation and the atavistic fear of nothingness. Sub-frequencies corrode the one last trace of human cognition, apprehension and judgment. Despair has never been as compelling that now. 
 
 
DEADSMOKE - Debut album "Deadsmoke"
Out on March 25th via Heavy Psych Sounds
 
TRACK LISTING:
1. Branches Of Evil
2. Eyes Of The Blind Man
3. Liar Behind Me
4. Tornado
5. Night Of The Vipers

RED FANG RECORDING NEW ALBUM WITH PRODUCER ROSS ROBINSON

WHALES & LEECHES FOLLOW-UP SLATED FOR FALL RELEASE VIA RELAPSE RECORDS
 
Red Fang, who recently celebrated their tenth anniversary with a trio of Northwestern U.S. performances, return to the studio in February, recording the follow-up to Whales & Leeches with famed producer Ross Robinson.

"I've never been more excited about making a record in my life,” said drummer John Sherman. “The writing process for this album has been super fun and full of energy and good vibes.  And the opportunity to work with Ross Robinson is so crazy - I've got goose bumps just talking about it!!"


“Red Fang is the extreme mix of cool, wisdom, fire, life dedication and taste,” offered Robinson. “I'm stoked to see who they are at the deepest level on tape; anyone touched by Red Fang swim in coolness, they are true messengers of inspiration.”

The band, who are trekking from Portland to begin recording at Robinson’s Venice, Calif. studio, will play two shows en route: Feb. 17 at Jub Jub’s in Reno and Feb. 18 at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz.

Whales & Leeches was released in October 2013 via Relapse Records. The 11-song album landed the band on The Late Show with David Letterman and in a world of trouble in the zombie-infused video for “Blood Like Cream,” which featured guest Fred Armisen (https://youtu.be/elfuaxHQWlQ).  Alternative Press said Whales & Leeches was “bigger, bolder, heavier, catchier and even more savagely fun.”

Oregon's best kept secret HOLY GROVE unveil artwork and new song off debut album, out this March on Heavy Psych Sounds


Ahoy, groove worshippers! Here is Oregon's best kept secret and soon-to-be iconic rockers HOLY GROVE, led by one of the greatest female voices in the doom/heavy rock game. The band recently unveiled the artwork as well as two goosebump-inducing tracks for their upcoming debut "Holy Grove", due out March 18th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
 
 
Check out HOLY GROVE's new songs Death Of Magic and Nix
 
 
Remember when heavy rock bands wrote songs? In the early 70's, Grand Funk, Bang and Deep Purple brought hooks and choruses to seriously weighty tunes. In 2015, Portland, Oregon’s HOLY GROVE walk in the footsteps of tradition, pitting soulful vocals, searing guitar solos, and swinging grooves into their own dinosaur stomp.
 
After wowing US audiences for two years, the doom blues is now ready to deliver their self-titled debut, with seven tracks top-full of blazing riffage, cloud-piercing wails, and enough rhythmic heft to satisfy today’s doom-hungry audience. Andrea Vidal’s lyrics of myth and fantasy coast on a massive magic carpet of guitar licks, kept aloft by a pulverizing rhythm section. HOLY GROVE is far more than a toe-dipped-in-the occult spring, they produce a patiently-crafted statement of intent with major love and assistance from master “engine-ear” Billy Anderson (Sleep's "Dopesmoker", The Melvins).
