[Music] Psychic Dose – Maleficium Volume 1: Death of the Sorcerer


I’m not the biggest metal-head in the world, but this release by Psychic Dose is cueing off of the best of the metal I did manage to enjoy in my youth.

Though one could classify them as a doom metal band, they also show off influences from bands like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Budgie, at least to my ears.  If there is a Part 2, I’m keen on hearing it once it comes out.

[Music] 20 Years of Southern Lord’s Dark and Heavy Art

https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/v=2/album=2641990699/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/artwork=small/

The label’s roster has always featured a wide breadth of sonic explorers, from ambient artists through very heavy metal and post-metal acts to jazz fusion.

via 20 Years of Southern Lord’s Dark and Heavy Art — Bandcamp Daily

It’s amazing to think that this label has been around for 20 years, and I missed a good fifteen of those due to ignorance. May they have another happy 20.

[Music] The Myrrors – Arena Negra

I’m not sure about the other bands in Tuscon, Arizona, but local lads The Myrrors are swimming in a sea of sludge and LSD. This is slow, plodding, and very, very effecting stoner rock.

[Music] On “Concrete Desert,” The Bug and Earth’s Dylan Carlson Destroy L.A.

the-bug-vs-earth-2-by-phil-sharp-600

Bandcamp Daily features The Bug vs. Earth, a powerful pairing of Kevin Martin’s Industrial/dub project, which has been around in one form or another since the late 1980s, and Dylan Carlson’s seminal drone rock project, Earth.

Dark, moody, cinematic post-rock.  Perfect music for meditating over the crumbling Los Angeles skyline.

[Music] Orthodox – Κréas

Orthodox are a Spanish metal band who seem to be very comfortable straddling the line between doom metal and free-jazz. One piece, 27 minutes, of brutal skronk.

[Music] Mizar – Svjat Dreams

Behind only Laibach and Bijelo Dugme (White Button), Mizar were the most powerful name in the Balkan rock music scene, and crossed over into Darkwave with ease.  This is a cover of The Eurhythmics’ classic hit, “Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This,” done with a heavy dose of Byzantine goth.

[Music] Swans – Cry Me A River

So haunting it’s damn near a suicide dirge. Former Swans co-vocalist Jarboe performs one of the most bleak, desolate covers of this classic torch song penned by Arthur Hamilton.

[Sample] Thou – Heathen

https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=494687384/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/transparent=true/

Amazing noisy sludge from Louisiana, Thou seem to be keeping to a trend of quasi-religious metal band names. They’re impressive at any rate.
