WITCHSORROW
"Hexenhammer"
Candlelight Records


The calling of doom metal is not for those who seek an easy path to glory. For those drawn to its flame, it is the awakening of Black Sabbath’s dark spirit through the music that is its own rich reward. And for those who truly walk the path of doom, it is a journey without end, a pilgrimage that eventually becomes part of the traveller’s very bones and being.

For Hampshire doom metal maniacs WITCHSORROW, it has become a life’s work. Formed by frontman Necroskull and bassist Emily Witch over a decade ago (later completed by drummer Wilbrahammer), and with a mission to celebrate the traditions of doom as practiced by such puritans as Black Sabbath, Cathedral, Saint Vitus, Trouble and Candlemass, across three albums their hymns to the void have earned them a place among the genre’s elite. Obsessed with doom, proudly upholding the heavy metal roots of the genre, and with a lyrical outlook that takes in madness, misanthropy, witchcraft, evil, and no less a topic than the destruction of the Earth itself, the trio are as much about the worship of doom as they are pouring scorn on a world of hate and envy.

And as the world continues to live in ever-more interesting times, a new collection of hymns emerges. Those familiar with the history of witch trials will already know of the Malleus Maleficarum, the dreaded book by fifteenth-century Catholic clergyman Henricus Institoris that detailed and endorsed the torture and extermination of witches by violent means. But, like the album, it also went by another name: Hexenhammer.


Written during a hermetic period following an intense run of live shows, and recorded at Skyhammer studio with long-time co-conspirator Chris Fielding (Conan, Primordial, Electric Wizard), the songs find WITCHSORROW continuing to explore the dark corners of doom, and illuminate them with the blinding light of sheer heavy metal forged of the strongest steel. It’s an almost anthemic soundtrack to the end of the world lyrics.

"I’ve always been obsessed with the end of the world," explains Necroskull. "On previous albums, I've been wanting it to happen, because I was caught in a very dark place. On 'No Light...', I was almost angry that it hadn't happened. This time, it's a massively confusing time where we're basically staring at it and waiting for it. I have no solutions. There are none to be had."

If 2018 needs a soundtrack to its madness, WITCHSORROW have provided it. Heavier, darker, doomier, and more metal than ever before, one of doom's leading lights have made the perfect album for our times.

DOPETHRONE
"Transcanadian Anger"
Totem Cat Records


DOPETHRONE plays "Slutch Metal", a foul Canadian mix of yellow snow, crackhead diarrhea, blood, tears and broken dreams. This new album "Transcanadian Anger" follows in with the trio's widely acclaimed fourth full-length "Hochelaga" (2015) and pushes their pervasive, filthy brand of sludge metal to its most extreme and intoxicating levels. This is eight punishing tracks of the highest order, a no-frills-given riff carnage with all the sleaze and groove you can expect from a DOPETHRONE record, while embracing the band's punk and hardcore roots as never before.

TRACK LISTING:
1. Planet Meth
2. Wrong Sabbath
3. Killdozer
4. Scuzzgasm

KAISER
"1st Sound"
Oak Island Records


It was late summer of 2013, Otu and RiQ met on the web and quickly discovered that their music interests were the same. Wasting no time, they formed a band, this machine called KAISER. Their initial session showed that their chemistry was more than right, it was supreme. They recruited Pex, who had played bass in the same band as RiQ in the past.

The band worked with legendary producer Hiili "Carbon" Hiilesmaa on "1st Sound", most notable for his work with fellow Hellsinki rock legends HIM.The result is a crushingly heavy, super tight and melodic stoner rock album that is sure to hit home with fans of Kyuss, High On Fire, The Sword and Red Fang.

Oak Island Records carved the fuzzed-out, riff fuelled energy of KAISER in vinyl and CD.

Double Doom Treat: BODY VOID & CHRCH release brand new crushing albums! #doommetalfront #drycoughrecords #seeingredrecords #crownandthrone #neurotrecordings



BODY VOID
"I Live Inside A Burning House"
Crown And Throne
Dry Cough Records
Seeing Red Records

Coming off their debut release "Ruins", BODY VOID returned to Earhammer Studios and has submitted almost an hour of painful sludge and wretched doom. With 2018's "I Live Inside A Burning House", this San Francisco sludge/crust outfit sought to create a darker and more substantial release, expanding on their sound but still holding true to the aural assault fans have come to expect.

Under the watchful ear of audio engineer Greg Wilkinson, BODY VOID continues in the style of label mates Primitive Man and Keeper, as well as genre-defining bands like Khanate, while staying grounded in the same harsh sludge sonic palette as "Ruins".

"I Live Inside A Burning House" is frightening and caustic, from the cinematic opener “Haunted” to the cacophonous nightmare of “Phantom Limb” and the tortuous drone of “Given.” Lyrically, the album seeks to explore queer identity, mental illness, and how those factors impact the push-pull relationship between material and immaterial existence.

"I Live Inside A Burning House" is co-released with Dry Cough Records and Seeing Red Records on vinyl, cassette, and compact disc formats.

Recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios between April and October 2017

Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege

Artwork by Muhamad Ikbalarinfin Suradi

Track-listing:
1. Intro/A Burning House
2. Haunted
3. Trauma Creature
4. Phantom Limb
5. Given






CHRCH
"Light Will Consume Us All"
Neurot Recordings

Sacramento-based doom band CHRCH has joined the Neurot Recordings family for the release of their brand new full-length, "Light Will Consume Us All".

Standing at a crossroads of light and dark, CHRCH create epic, lengthy songs, with a massive low end, and a supernatural vocal presence, in a perfect blend of height and depth. CHRCH has been hard at work crafting their particular sound since 2013. There is no image or gimmick to uphold, only the humble glorification of their fundamental musical elements.

This purity and honesty comes across in a striking manner on the band’s debut "Unanswered Hymns" (Battleground Records, 2015), a sprawling roller coaster of an album. Long-form songs build and dismantle as the band reaches sonic heights and beautiful plateaus. Severe, sometimes unrelenting, guttural vocals contrast with melodic singing, just as massive guitar fuzz gives way to cleaner parts. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Patrick Hills at Earthtone Studios in Rocklin, California, it exudes a warm, organic tone that draws the listener in with a sound influenced by traditional doom, psych rock, drone, and ambience.

CHRCH teamed up with Fister to release a split 12-inch via Battleground Records / Crown And Throne LTD, earlier this year. Their track, “Temples,” displays the increasing subtlety and intensity of CHRCH's songwriting. Intricate melodies and composition build upon the band's thunderous drums, strong vocals, and gargantuan riffs.

The band's second full length, "Light Will Consume Us All", carries with it the same quality of songwriting that caught the attention of fans worldwide on their debut. Building upon this unyielding foundation, "Light Will Consume Us All" also continues CHRCH's narrative, traversing life's epic journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness.

CHRCH is:
Eva Rose - vocals
Chris Lemos - guitar, vocals
Ben Cathcart - bass
Adam Jennings - drums
Karl Cordtz - guitar, vocals


TONS from Turin in Italy premiere "Filthy Flowers of Doom", their second full-length album, in full prior its official release via Heavy Psych Sounds on April 20th! #prelisten #doommetalfront



TONS
"Filthy Flowers Of Doom"
Heavy Psych Sounds


"Filthy Flowers of Doom" is Tons' second full length album. Forty minutes divided into five tracks of in your face sludge/doom metal. Slabby and Luciferian riffs, tight drumming and a demonic voice characterize the last effort from the Turin band, now with a new drummer and a second guitar. Low-league occultism and weed devotion are the basis of this muddy album that will drag you into a sulphurous and sabbathian void. "Filthy Flowers of Doom" is recorded by Danilo "Deepest Sea" Battocchio, while mastering is helmed by Brad Boatright (Sleep, NAILS, Obituary) at Audiosiege (USA).


Recommended for fans of Weedeater and Dopethrone style sludge nihilism!


TRACKLIST:

Side A
01 – Abbath's Psychedelic Breakfast
02 – 99 Weed Balloons
03 – Those of the Unlighter

Side B
04 – Girl Scout Cookie Monster
05 – Sailin' the Seas of Buddha Cheese






BIOGRAPHY:

TONS is an italian doom sludge band formed in Turin in October 2009 from the ashes of three popular hardcore bands of the city. The band consists of Steuso on guitar (rock poster artist and guitarist of The Redrum) Marco on drums (drummer of Noinfo and Medusa) and Paolo on bass/vocals (singer of Lamatematica). The aim of the band is to remain close to the hardcore influence of the city where they were born but they decided to move on to sludge and doom. In June 2009 with the help of Danilo Bottocchio (Last Minute to Jaffna guitarist and a closer friend of the band) they recorded a first demo of four songs in which we can find the first features of the band: a powerful stoner rock trio, sludge riffs, psychedelic landscapes and doom sessions. The atmosphere around the band is devilish, but ironic as we can see from some song titles such as "The Rime of the Ancient Grower", "Tangerine Nightmare", or "Once Upon a Tentacle...", that suggest the passion of the guys for H.P. Lovecraft and in a more general way for esotericism. The mistery of the city of Turin and the magical and esoteric places around it fascinate the band as we can notice from the title and the cover of the first album "Musineè Doom Session Volume 1". Mount Musinè is situated in Val Susa and has always been sourronded by local myths such as witchcraft and alien life. In July 2011 the band recorded the six songs on the album "Musineè Doom Session Volume 1" (CD - CD LTD screenprinted - LP) with the help of Danilo and Paolo Paganelli (Woptime, Linea 77, Muddy Mokes, Rock-a-Hula) and the master session has been done by Lorenzo Stecconi (sound engineer for Ufomammut, Lento, ZU, Grime, Amen Ra). The album includes the four songs of the old demo and two more new songs "Ketama Gold" and "At War with Yog-Sothoth" that clearly suggest the direction of the band. The album, released by Heavy Psych Sounds (www.heavypsychsounds.com) and Escape from Today (www.escapefromtoday.org), is available from March 2012.

In 2013 the band recorded a couple of songs for a split-album with Lento, released by Heavy Psych-Sounds, with the help of Danilo and Paolo Paganelli, while the master session has been done by Lorenzo Stecconi. Luca T. Mai, member of ZU, Mombu, played baritone saxophone with Tons on "Dark Medieval Skunk". They shared the stage around Europe with bands like Bongzilla, Weedeater, Church Of Misery, Unsane, Napalm Death, Karma To Burn, Big Business, Kylesa, Lesbian, Pentagram, Naam, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, between Italy, Austria, Netherland, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, France and Switzerland. In 2014 Tons played at Duna Jam festival in Italy and at Incubate Festival in Tilburg (NL). In 2016 Marco left Tons and Andrea Peracchia (Slaiver, Dogs for Breakfast) joined the band as a new drummer; in the same year Paolo Paganelli, a longtime friend, who already collaborated with the band, became a permanent member too.

In 2017, with the new line-up, Tons finally recorded the second full lenght album “Filthy Flowers of Doom”, which will be released by Heavy Psych Sounds in April 2018. In May 2018 Tons will be on tour across Europe.


TONS are:

Weed Mason: Bass/Voice
Steuso: Guitar
Paganellord: Guitar
