Could Copenhagen become the new death doom capital? If so, one of the main reasons would be Konvent!

Dun Ringill release new music video for “The Door”

Bay Area blackened funeral doom collective Barren Altar will release their debut full-length next month.

Titled “Entrenched in the Faults of the Earth”, the morose offering was captured in the summer of 2017 with Greg Wilkinson (Graves At Sea, Necrot, Vastum) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California and delivers five tracks of sonic desolation.

Of the record's overall theme, the band offers: “It's a metaphysical plea for the voluntary end of all human life, pressed to plastic, and added to the ever-growing dumpster fire that is the modern world”.

Sourvein to release “Aquatic Occult” on April 8th 2016

For over two decades, Sourvein frontman T-Roy has managed to keep the roving pirate ship that is his band afloat through sheer will alone. Pushing through poverty, the deaths of friends and family, bouts of severe depression, periods of alcohol abuse, and an absence of the stability provided by a consistent record label, T-Roy has over the course of two decades managed to build the band into a highly respected force in the metal, doom, sludge, and crust underground.
