And we’ll close with something a little different. Below is the latest video from Chastity for “Happy Face”. That’s a track taken from Suffer Summer, which is out through Deathwish Inc. and Dine Alone Records.
With Migration, Bossk are only on their second full length since forming in 2005, give or take little, but that hasn’t stopped them from being one of the heaviest bands in post-metal this side of Amenra. There, we said it. And, it’s true. Migration is chock full of mood, atmosphere, and plain old heaviness…the kind you could hammer hot steel with. It’s also an overall better album than their debut, the band has really stepped it up in the songwriting department and the construct of each and every track and how it reacts with its surroundings. Bottom line; this is an album you need in your life. Head inside for an in depth discussion via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.
Any of you pay attention to all the crackin’ singles released last week? If not, hit rewind and peruse our Canto posts to find out. Needless to say, this year is only getting better on the new metal front. Speaking of new metal, we’ve got entries from prog-tech death wonders Alustrium, a split of doom and fuzz from Dead Witches and Witchthroat Serpent (witchy), a slab of super heavy post-metal from Bossk, and a half dungeon synth half 80s horror flick soundtrack from supergroup Arelseum. And, as you surely are aware by now, so much more follows these four so do yourself and these bands a solid and make it rain.
