Japanese label Weird Truth Productions brings you a remastered gem of sonic darkness: "Coronation of the Black Sun" by Finnish funeral doom masters PROFETUS. #release #doommetalfront



PROFETUS
"Coronation of the Black Sun"
Weird Truth Productions

"Although originally released in 2009, this gem of a release has been remastered by Dan Lowndes of Resonance Sound Studio, which is known for its work with bands like Blood Incantation, Sigh, Cruciamentum and more. You will receive sonorous, plodding doom from the depths of human misery, wonderfully expressed using sparse notes and a despondent atmosphere. This hearkens back to the glorious era of bands like Thergoton, Skepticism, Tyranny and Esoteric, when this kind of funeral doom was arguably at its peak. Along with this magnificent debut, the label has included their first demo and even a live track as bonus. This is the epitome of funeral doom and all that's special about it."

Track list:

1. Skull of Silence
2. The Eye of Phosphorus
3. Coalescence of  Ashen Wings
4. Blood of Saturn
5. Saturine Night
6. Winter Solstice
7. Blood of Saturn (Kuopio live)




"Coronation of the Black Sun"
album line-up:

V. Kujansuu - Drums
Eppe Kuismin - Guitars
A. Mäkinen - Guitars, Vocals
S. Kujansuu - Keyboards

DHU Records are giving "Ego Death", the celebrated debut album of Chicago's FACES OF THE BOG, its well-deserved vinyl appearance! #release #doommetalfront



FACES OF THE BOG
"Ego Death"
DHU Records

"Initially conceived in a dingy rehearsal space in Humboldt Park during the fall of 2011, FACES OF THE BOG have fast become one of the underground’s most celebrated secrets following the self-release of their debut album 'Ego Death' late last year.

For the Chicagoland quartet, their own unique interpretation of sludge has never run neatly alongside preconceived notions of how this kind of music should be played. Choosing to ignore convention and instead, power brutal riffs headfirst into psychedelically heightened grooves, relying on atmosphere and mood to create melodic textures they are a band constantly pushing the envelope.“ (...)

Produced and engineered by the band and Sanford Parker (Voivod, Yob, Wreckmeister Harmonies, Bloodiest) at Electrical Audio and Decade Music Studios, "Ego Death" was released digitally and on CD in October 2016 serving  an “existential ride of psychedelic waves and collection of bangin’g sludge jams,” all of which journeyed the same sonic highways shared by the likes of Pink Floyd, Tool and Neurosis. Going one further, they described it as a record packed with, “a fascinating range of psychedelic sludge and hints of doom and acid tones.”

“'It'’s truly amazing these days when an underground band from a US city like Chicago can release an album completely on their own', explains guitarist and vocalist Trey Wedgeworth.“ 'We’ve been amazed and humbled by the feedback we’'ve received all over the world. Fans from places like Germany, Norway, Portugal, Brazil, Australia, and Russia have all reached out to us to give their kind words to what we’re doing.” It was while playing a handful of shows last year with pacific north-westerners Mother Crone that the band were introduced (in a roundabout way) to the good work of Nederland-based record label, DHU Records.'

'Mother Cron ran into some transportation issues while out on tour and we were fortunate enough to be able to help some good dudes in need',” says Wedgeworth. “'They more than repaid the favour by putting us in touch with Robert Black at DHU Records. DHU is a DIY label that releases limited edition vinyl packages for some of the heaviest bands in underground music today, so we quickly forged a great relationship and are completely ecstatic that he’s now rereleasing Ego Death on vinyl.”'


MAHARAJA deliver thrash-infested, devastating sludge metal on "Kali Yuga", their self-released debut album. #review #doommetalfront



MAHARAJA
"Kali Yuga"
self-release


MAHARAJA are a three piece sludge metal band from the post industrial wasteland of Dayton, Ohio. After spending the better part of the past three years touring since their inception in 2014, the band excitedly entered the studio with engineer Jacob Wright (Big Deal America), with full intent of capturing their live onslaught on tape. The album title, "Kali Yuga", is Sanskrit for the “age of destruction” and the band does little to disappoint those expecting a visceral and figurative representation of demonic destruction. MAHARAJA has perfected their own wall of sound by way of lead vocalist and bassist Eric Bluebaum's fuzzed out tone, stacked with Angus Burkhardt’s guitars that doom’'n'’shred, and drums that are as quick to drop a blast beat as they are to groove you to death courtesy of drummer and vocalist Zack Mangold.

"Our intent is to break amps, disorient, and make people throw up”", Bluebaum says. Although their live show is often delivered at stomach pummeling volume, it’s sure to be more enjoyable than painful. However, Bluebaum suggests his body-shaking bass rig warrants ear plugs either way. The album begins with the blistering, brooding, and insanely heavy “"Blood Moon"” and from there the album never lets up in aggression nor sheer ferocity. Album centerpiece “"Black Magiq Carpet Ride”" finds the band simultaneously channeling Red Fang, High on Fire, and Weedeater. The vocals goes from a bellow to powerviolent shouting and then to screeching flawlessly, with a relentless guitar onslaught and Burkhardt’s usual thrash riffage makes way for an off-kilter spaced out solo. Album closer “"I, Undying"” brings it all together. Nearly eight minutes of stoner rock bliss close the album out, and it all begins to make sense. "Kali Yuga" is the perfect soundtrack for the apocalypse.
