DRAB MAJESTY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘MODERN MIRROR’ Due out July 12 on Dais Records /…
Alberich is the truculent solo project of underground super-producer Kris Lapke. Offering his studio skills to big names including Prurient, Nothing and The Haxan Cloak, Lapke has developed a sonic footprint that spawns as much shock as it does awe. Alberich has achieved a cult on par with many of the legends he works with, and has built a career from outright destroying musical norms.
Since their inception in 2012, BIG|BRAVE have explored terrains of experimental rock with a clear focus on the key principles; space, volume, and raw emotion. The essence of BIG|BRAVE’s magic has always been the way they balance these dynamics, and particularly how much sheer power comes from the beautifully quiet moments.
Low Dose is a band that can take a punch. Whether we’re talking the dissolution of past projects, or the crumbling of a marriage, the quartet live with a resiliency that translates to their truculent sound. Any speculation of that fact can be laid to rest with one listen to their latest single, “Low,” which opens their forthcoming debut LP.
Already one of the year’s most anticipated releases, Elizabeth Colour Wheel’s debut album Nocebo is a masterclass in both aggression and reflection. Backed by San Fransisco-based label The Flenser, the experimental five-piece is poised to dominate 2019 with its thunderous blend of shoegaze, metal, and noise rock. After listening to album opener “Pink Palm,” that prediction becomes clear.
Richmond’s INTER ARMA, reigning masters of the slow build, continue to trace a distinctly ambitious trajectory through modern metal. Today, the band announces their 4th full-length offering Sulphur English, coming April 12th, 2019, and share the first single entitled “Citadel.”
After promising a myriad of new developments throughout 2019, Sargent House artist Emma Ruth Rundle has begun unveiling her grand plans for the new year.

The three-week jaunt will also include collaborative sets in select cities, as well as a special set at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands. Later, Rundlewill spend the month of May touring alongside post-rock titans MONO in North America. A full tour itinerary can be found below.

One month from today, San Francisco post-black-metal band Bosse-de-Nage will release their highly-anticipated fifth full-length Further Still. The album marks a bold diversion from Bosse-de-Nage’s typically sprawling arrangements in favor of airtight, propulsive song structures. Deliberately succinct and fuming, the grip of nine new tracks finds Bosse-de-Nage pitting their unique lyrical structures against hairpin turning melodies.
