Slower Order releases first single “Serpent’s Son”

Since the release of their first EP “Pyramid Toward Oblivion” in 2011, the instrumental power trio, Slow Order, hailing from Bologna pursues a sound of the classic stoner rock with modern heavy metal influences. Following Slow Order’s first full-length in 2014, “Hidden Voices”, gained the band not only high praise from both fans and press alike, but also allowed them to share the stages of all sizes with acts such as Pentagram, Karma To Burn or Avon, to name just a few.

Lungbutter to release debut full-length album “Honey” on May 31st 2019

Montréal trio Lungbutter serves up an exhilarating and relentless barrage of astringent noise-punk, at times refracted variously through sludge rock and slowcore.

Kaity Zozula’s tri-amped guitar squall occupies a huge tonal space from low-end bass to paint-peeling treble, redolent of blown-out Melvins/Flipper fuzz and indebted to the frenetic dissonance of Keiji Haino or Merzbow.

Dead Witches

So, to kick off with, where did the bad name DeadWitches come from?
 
Mark: I’ve always been interested in dead things! I’ve always been fascinated by death, and afraid of death. So, I like the word dead! I was trying to decide what word would go well with it. And obviously I’m big fan of Halloween and Witches. It just came to me, and I thought it sounded cool. And checked there were no other bands with the name of course!
 
 

Veuve to release new studio album “Fathom” on May 31st 2019

Italian power stoner rockers Veuve are messing around since 2014, following up on a self-produced debut EP and their 2016 full-lenght album, “Yard”, the band takes on a new step and will release their hotly anticipated, sophomore album, “Fathom”, on May 31st, 2019, via Argonauta Records!

“Fathom” will once again worship Veuve’s refreshing mix of fuzzy seventies-fashioned riffs in the likes of mother Sabbath, father Kyuss and the big brother Hawkind, infinite kraut-rock drifts into modern post-metal trails.

1782 to release self-titled debut album on May 24th 2019

It was a cold December day in 2018, when Marco Nieddu and Gabriele Fancellu formed a doom band called 1782, in honor of all the “witches” murdered by the bigoted minds of many generations. Just a month later, the band entered the studio to record the single “She was a Witch”, released by Electric Valley Records in within the same month. Only a few days after its release, the single turned out to be a great success, especially on social media and by listeners of the genre.
