GIGAN – The Fathomless Echoes of Eternities Imagination

Here’s a track fro Gigan’s 2011 album Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes, released by Willowtip Records. It kinda-sorta reminds me of Orgone’s Goliath.

The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza – You Won’t, new track from Danza IIII

It’s like Danza III never ended! Which is a good thing.

Neurosis – Honor Found in Decay promo

Update #2: here’s an embed of At The Well, a track from Neurosis’s Honor Found in Decay. Oh, wow. What a commanding, fantastic, perfect track. The guitar sounds at the start like a moaning ox, but radiates out into brighter colors as it whines and fades. Amazingly, the bagpipes here are (they are bagpipes, right?) are not just a novelty but one of the most beautiful moments of the song. The ritual vocal repetition, what sounds like “in the shadow world…,” the kind of watery wobbling guitar notes radiating out over very familiar tribal sounding drums is reminiscent of the climaxes at the end of tracks like Burn from Eye of Every Storm, or the title track of Given to the Rising. Yet it’s a very different entity- it’s not oversaturated with effects, you can almost hear a silence between the instruments as if placed there out of deference. Jesus, this is as good as any track Neurosis has put out in a long time.

Now, below is just a promo. There really is some honest-to-god music mixed in here. So listen for it. There’s also some over-the-top marketing but they’ve always been like that.

Update: Neurosis has premiered the track At the Well for NPR’s All Songs Considered. Cheggit here.

Pig Destroyer – Book Burner

So, MetalSucks is going ballistic over the impending Pig Destroyer album Book Burner, out October 22. And that’s fine. That’s awesome even. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say the commenters are fucking brain damaged idiots for thinking it’s clever to go “OLOL you’re biased bc you love Pig Destroyer!” But as much as I’m willing to go along with this, because, let’s face it, Phantom Limb is one of the best metal albums ever, I’m not super life-changingly excited about what we’ve heard of Book Burner so far.

First there is the teaser:

It’s stripped down. It’s good. It just isn’t Phantom Limb good. Here’s a full track, Burning Palm.

Ok, Burning Palm is great. But it doesn’t quite roar, and it isn’t until the close of the track that it becomes the catchy as shit stuff I’m used to. We’ll see.

 

Swarm of The Lotus – Call To Abandon
