Seven Sisters of Sleep at A389 2011 (more by BBG)
Seven Sisters of Sleep (mems Tafkata) are two for two with releases in 2011, dropping both their excellent debut and their similarly crushing split with Children of God this year. Get both at A389. Though no full East Coast trek has been planned, Seven Sisters of Sleep will join the great All Pigs Must Die, labelmates Low Places, and NYC's Grudges for an NYC date at Acheron on 1/20, just a few days after the always awesome A389 Anniversary show at Sonar in Baltimore with Eyehategod, Gehenna, and many others.
All Pigs Must Die was recently given an "honorable mention" in Pitchfork's top metal of 2011 list (though no shout out for Seven Sisters of Sleep). Check out the full list, along with some streaming APMD material and a few videos below...

Underground metal label 20 Buck Spin (who, speaking of Pentagram, are named after a Pentagram song) have welcomed Vastum to the roster. Vastum are an unholy and punishing death metal beast from the Bay that features members of incredible acts like Infest, Acephalix, Saros, and Hammers of Misfortune. Carnal Law is the band's debut offering of galloping, mid-paced crusty death metal that draws more from the Autopsy/Entombed/Bolt Thrower school and forgoes flashy technical wizardry. Remember when death metal was truly brutal and not filled with post-production studio trickery? Vastum does. Stream Carnal Law in its entirety below and order a copy at 20 Buck Spin.
Meanwhile Acephalix is also preparing to release Interminable Night, their new disc for Southern Lord/Agipunk on May 24th. Drawing from similar influence as Vastum (Acephalix makes up 3/4 of Vastum), the band's new LP picks up where the band's pummeling debut full length Aporia left off with more crusty death metal and mixing in touches of d-beat destruction. Get the record on LP via Agipunk and the CD via Southern Lord, and look for them on a mostly West Coast tour that includes a stop at Chaos in Tejas (no NYC at the moment unfortunately).
