Video of the Day – Electric Age’s ‘Robes of Grey’….

ELECTRIC AGE

Sleep Of The Silent King – CD / DD

Argonauta Records – releases February 27, 2017

 

We here at Taste Nation LLC love the band Electric Age so much we decided to revisit and showcase them once again.  This time in the form of a featured video ‘Robes of Grey.’  This is one of the many killer tracks from the band’s stellar debut concept album “Sleep Of The Silent King” on Argonauta Records.”

In case you missed our review back in February of this year, here is a blurb from our writer Ric “Suiyko” Dorr:

“From the deep South, southern Louisiana to be exact, the birthplace of sludge-metal, comes this hybrid of all things resonating traditional metal, elements of folk / blues / stoner / doom / progressive, and a pure rock dynamic to morph it all into this, the debut offering from this three piece named ELECTRIC AGE. While this is the first release from this line-up as a unit, I was informed directly that these seasoned players have decided to forgo sharing their collective pedigree to let this album stand on its own merits in the here and now. After taking it in, I believe they have created something amazing that can indeed stand tall as an accomplishment of songwriting, musicianship and something that has been so lacking as of late in American metal; the art of storytelling. Dripping with the archetypal concepts of good, evil and the divine throughout this sojourn, the band states that this is “A conceptual and mythological journey through the threshold of time and consciousness, into the heart of darkness and divinity, through death and redemption, and finally into the inexorable void.” So, not just another “Wankfest” but actually thinking-man’s metal?? The pulse quickens…”

Tau Cross Releases New Video ‘Deep State’ from New Album “Pillar of Fire”…

Tau Cross

Deep State – Vinyl // CD // DD

Relapse Records – released July 21, 2017 

 

Pillar of Fire_Album Cover

 

TAU CROSS, the multinational punk/heavy metal collective featuring Amebix bassist/frontman Rob “The Baron” Miller, Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin, and members of cult crust outfits Misery and War // Plague, has announced their second full-length album, Pillar Of Fire, due out July 21st on CD, Double LP, and digital formats via Relapse Records.

Comments TAU CROSS on the new album: “Pillar Of Fire is the continuation of some of the ideas that were explored on our first album. This time we have managed to share the songwriting more equally and introduce some other textures to the songs. This should help to establish TAU CROSS as less of a one-off phenomenon and more of an ongoing musical collective producing our own distinctive sonic environment.”

Pillar Of Fire was recorded across three different countries and co-produced by “The Baron” in the same manner as their eponymous debut. The drums were tracked in Montreal, guitars in Minneapolis, bass in Seattle and Minneapolis, and vocals on the Isle Of Skye in Scotland.

Physical preorders and exclusive bundles are currently available via Relapse.com at THIS LOCATION. Digital preorders are available via Bandcamp HERE.

Pillar Of Fire further expands the group’s unique musical approach ranging from dark folk witchery to industrial punk metal brutalism; a moody melting pot of Killing Joke’s metallic post-punk and Motörhead’s anthemic, hard rock with flourishes of traditional instrumentation and an infusion of 16th century English mysticism. Pillar Of Fire is a musical unearthing of TAU CROSS‘ philosophical preoccupations: mythological motifs, ultra-terrestrial hypotheses, surreal, social political landscapes, and the endless search for meaning in a controlled universe.

DEAD CROSS Drops ‘Seizure And Desist’ Official Video

Multifaceted avant garde heavy rock unit Dead Cross, which features Dave Lombardo (Suicidal Tendencies, Grip INC., ex-Slayer) and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom) in their ranks, have dropped a new Official Video. The clip is for the track ‘Seizure And Desist‘ which hails from the band’s upcoming self-titled debut due from  Ipecac Recordings on August 4th. Joining Lombardo and Patton in Dead Cross are Justin Pearson (The Locust, Head Wound City, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival Of Dead Deer).

The S/T debut was produced by the famed Ross Robinson (Korn, Sepultura, Red Fang, Deftones) and features a glow-in-the-dark cover (CD/LP) created by Eric Livingston, with vinyl available in a limited edition gold and a clear/red/black swirl. Livingston’s art is also depicted and included throughout this new visualizer. Digital pre-orders include instant downloads of “Grave Slave” and “Seizure And Desist“.

Regarding the “Seizure And Desist” clip, Justin Pearson said: “The artist who created our album art, Eric Livingston, came up with this video. As far as I’m concerned, It sums up the current social and political climate of today. For a lot of humanity, this world is a mean motherfucking place. The video captures the severity of the times we live in, as well as a means to communicate beyond basic language using iconic imagery, campy techniques, historical relevance, as well as a glimpse into the future.”

RAW IN SECT Debut ‘Therion’ Official Video From Upcoming ‘Kitro’ Album

Incredibly unique Grecian rockers Raw In Sect have premiered a brand new Official Video for their track ‘Therion‘. The song comes off the band’s upcoming third album ‘Kitro‘, set to be out this September. The video can be viewed below while the band shares the following about the song itself: “The video is meant to reflect the transformation into Therion, which is to “find inner power in a primitive way getting in touch with your instincts.

Continuing to share about their blending of traditional Greek music with rock and roll, Raw In Sect‘s members add: “[We seek toredefine what aggressive/rock music is through a totally different approach than the one that has been known in the music scene.”

Really though, it’s about doing something new and artistic instead of repeating the same old patterns of established bands in hopes of securing a career in a declining music industry. Changing the language of the lyrics in Greek, recording live, and not setting on the sound of previous records that was somewhat accepted, are among the risks we took willingly in order to express something new and reach wider audiences.

Raw In Sect is:
Kostas Diamandis – Lead Vocals, Guitar
Dimitris Alexiou – Drums, Backing Vocals
George Ioakeimidis – Guitar, Backing Vocals
Ilias Platanitis – Bass, Backing Vocals

Serbian Gothic Doomers THE FATHER OF SERPENTS To Release New Album; Video Premiere

Serbian gothic doom/atmospheric death metallers The Father Of Serpents are set to release their new full-length album Age Of Damnation in a few days. Inspired by the likes of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Moonspell and more, the sextet have a very textured, organically appealing heaviness. You can hear, and visualize it, for yourself via their new music video for “Viral”.

“’Viral’ was the last song we did before recording the album in the studio, just a few days before,” The Father Of Serpents comment. “It was almost done in 15 minutes and it went pretty natural and straightforward. We didn’t have the time to overthought or analyze the song, so the energy of the moment when we were jamming the song is there. It is both groovy, catchy and dark.”

Age Of Damnation will be released on June 19 through Satanath Records and United By Chaos. Pre-order it here.
