Surprise! After a few CDs made their way into record stores accidentally (I am told) Twilight, the Blake Judd/Wrest project that now features N. Imperial (Kreig), Aaron Turner (Isis), Stavros Giannopoulos (The Atlas Moth) and Sanford Parker (Minsk) is out NOW on CD via Southern Lord! The record was engineered by Sanford Parker, who also contributed synths, and features eight tracks with Robert Lowe (Lichens) contributing vocals to three of them. No official word on a release date for the LP, but get out and order a copy... I think I may enjoy it more than the new Nachtmystium. Speaking of the new Nachtmystium, Stereogum recently premiered the keyboard heavy "No Funeral" from the forthcoming Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II. Dig on that above.

Call me obsessed, but the new Black Breath, Heavy Breathing, is on serious rotation lately- much like their previous EP Razors To Oblivion was last year. The new LP has Kurt Ballou's dirty little fingers all over it, bringing their rich early Swedish death metal meets hardcore sound to life, as exhibited in "Children of The Horn" available above. Get Heavy Breathing now via Southern Lord. Black Breath will open the BV/1000 Knives/AEG Live Converge extravaganza at Santos Party House on 5/6 along with Touche Amore and Lewd Acts. Make sure and get their early (their live show is worth it), and get your tickets in advance (it WILL sell out). Seriously brutal and fun stuff... you gotta love a band that screams "reject Christ, spit on the cross" at the top of their lungs. Or am I alone on that one?

Though it only lasts two tracks (but conversely- 35 minutes), the new EP from Altar of Plagues, Tides, is every bit as powerful as White Tomb, one of my favorite LPs of last year. AoP's new Tides EP is currently up for pre-order via Burning World Records (cop it), but until that package arrives, make sure and dig on "Atlantic Lights" from the EP (50% of the record!) , which makes it's world premiere here!

An LP from last year that was just too good to be free was Celeste's Misanthrope(s). With a potent mix of black metal, furious hardcore, and even melody, it was a seriously underrated record that deserved much more attention than it got. Even though Misanthrope(s) is barely in the rear view, the band has released their new LP, Morte Nee(s) for FREE download (get it above). Make sure and order a copy of the LP for yourself via Denovali as well though, it's one to keep for posterity.

Richmond's Inter Arma totally floored me at The Charleston with their furious mix of black metal, southern stoner style and Neurosis-style imperial riffage. Besides being a jawdropping live band, Inter Arma has also put together a pretty memorable record as well in the form of Sundown, out soon on Forcefield Records. Featuring members of another great Richmond band, Bastard Sapling, check out the band when they hit the road in July, but until then, check out Sundown!

A darkness has settled over the land... details on Watain's new album have been revealed! Entitled Lawless Darkness, the effort was recorded at Necromorbus Studio (Deathspell Omega, Funeral Mist, Ondskapt, Nominon, Unanimated et al) in Alvik, Sweden, and is due on June 7 with the below cover art and the tracklisting as listed down below. The release follows their picture disc EP Reaping Death which quickly disappeared, though the CD single is currently available.

That Watain cover, plus news on Blood Revolt (Primordial + Revenge), Loss, Man Is The Bastard, Hail of Bullets, Woe, a new Inquisition LP, and more as Short Wave Warfare continues....

Watain Lawless Darkness

Blood Revolt will unleash their new album Indoctrine via Profound Lore, featuring the vocal stylings of A.A. Nemtheanga (Primordial) along with the killer combo of J. Read (Revenge, Axis of Advance) and C. Ross (Axis of Advance). So far what I have heard from the new LP is absolutely punishing, with Nemtheanga's vocals soaring above it all. Look for more details on this LP forthcoming...

Neurot opens it's second triad disc (the first was Red Sparowes, Made Out of Babies, and Battle of Mice) with a theme, a tribute to the great Hawkwind! Harvestman (aka Steve Von Till), Minsk, and US Christmas will triple team this release, each contributing three songs to the mix. The tracklisting for the LP is below, look for it this May. Minsk is currently working on a "vinyl only conceptual piece".

Lightning Swords of Death have announced new details on their forthcoming LP for Metal Blade! Produced by Roskva, the long player is entitled The Extra Dimensional Wound and due via Metal Blade on 5/25. Full tracklisting is below... look out for it!

NACHTMYSTIUM - Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II

Loss will re-release their monolithic (and highly recommended!) demo Life Without Hope, Death Without Reason via Parasitic Records on 45 rpm 10" with an 11x17 fold out poster, insert and cover. You may recognize the name Loss from a colossal four-way split the band did with Otesanek, Mournful Congregation, and Orthodox in 2008 on Battle Kommand (Blake Judd's label). For more on how to order one of the 500 black vinyl pieces pressed, head to the Parasitic site. The label also has the Mortuary/Laboratory 7" by The Howling Wind (label head Tim Call's band with Ryan of Unearthly Trance), so add that to your cart as well. The Howling Wind's new LP, Into The Cryosphere, is out now via Profound Lore. We profiled the band last month.

Kylesa have signed to Season of Mist, who will release their new effort that will hopefully be "out later this year." The Savannah crew will spend May through July tracking the record at The Jam Room in Columbia, SC and gear up for US tours in Fall 2010/Winter 2011 and Europe before that with Converge. Congrats!

Knut have announced a new album, Wonder, due on Hydra Head Records! The brutal math-sludge-core band will unleash said brutality upon the world on June 29th, so stay tuned for more on that upcoming burner.

As previously discussed, Italian doomers Ufomammut are welcoming Eve, their new LP on Supernatural Cat. Checkout a snippet from the LP above, and a video preview of the LP below.

Yakuza recently debuted a new track at Stereogum from their forthcoming (and in high rotation) LP Of Seismic Consequence due on Profound Lore. Check out "Stones & Bones", available for download above.

Culted's blackened doom EP, Of Death And Ritual, is a worthy follow up to last year's great Below The Thunder of the Upper Deep and is definitely worth a listened. Check out the first track, "Spirituosa", available for download above.

Integrity - The Blackest Curse trailer

As previously discussed, Sayyadina's collection of grindcore furor The Great Northern Revisited is out now. It's a great primer for the sick Swedish band and definitely worth a listen if you are a fan of any of the members other projects (Victims, General Surgery, Nasum). Check out "Razor Discipline" available above.

Castevet has unveiled Mounds of Ash, their new LP for their new label, Profound Lore! Featuring current and ex-members of NYC greats like Copremesis, Defeatist, and Anodyne, the band will release their seven track LP on the label on May 25th, showcasing their patented blend of hardcore rhythms with black metal. The lead track for Mounds of Ash, "Grey Matter", is above. The band currently has two shows on their calendar, supporting Ludicra/Krallice at Europa on 4/17, and an album release show on June 7th at Lit Lounge.

When I think of hardcore, Milwaukee definitely doesn't come to mind, yet the incredible Get Rad is here to prove me wrong. I Can Always Live is the new album from this brutal unit that knows their way around an old school jam, but also keep it current- all with a sly sense of humor. Check out two tracks from the band above, and pick up the new LP via Gilead Media/Hyperrealist.

GET RAD - Dude Fest 2009 afterparty, did an entire set of Minor Threat covers. "12XU", "In My Eyes", "Out of Step"

Hells Headbangers and No Colours Records will co-release the new Inquisition LP, Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm. Stream a new song from that LP at Hells Headbangers. The label will also release a reissue of their 1998 LP Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult onto 2LP and CD. Inquisition will play Europa on May 23rd as well as Chaos in Tejas. Tickets are still available.

Ajna will release a four-way split entitled On The Powers of The Sphinx featuring contributions from Nightbringer, Saturnalia Temple, Aluk Todolo, and Nihil Nocturne. The four way features a single original song from each band aimed at "evoking the power of the Sphinx". More on that four way, which is out NOW, can be found at the Ajna site. Nightbringer's Apocalypse Sun is due on May 11th via The Ajna Offensive.

Woe will begin recording their new LP for Candlelight, Quietly, Undramatically this weekend. The eight song effort stretches 40 minutes, with two of those songs viewable below in a recent appearance at Heart of Winter Fest (pics/review). Woe will play The Studio @ Webster Hall on 4/29 with Alcest and Have a Nice Life. We documented Alcest's first show EVER in Romania (with Agalloch).

Woe at Heart of Winter Fest 2010

Public Guilt Records will showcase the great Psychic Paramount with Ala Muerte, Microkingdom, Destructo Swarmbots, Aun, and Terminal Lovers at a show at Party Expo on May 15th. The label recently dropped the domestic release of Aluk Todolo's Finsternis.

Deathwish has released their sampler, featuring Converge, Narrows, Integrity, Nails, Rise And Fall, 108, Starkweather, Overmars, Trap Them, United Nations, Ressurection, and TONS of others. Download that above.

Lord Mantis is currently streaming a new demo track,"Perverter Of The Will", at their myspace.

Only Death is Real, the book about the early days of Celtic Frost/Hellhammer, is out NOW via Bazillion Points. If you a nerd about Hellhammer and early (and latter!) Celtic Frost like I am, it's a must.

Karma To Burn have scheduled an NYC show with Year Long Disaster on 5/14. Local faves Naam and Hull will beef up the undercard. Tickets are on sale.

One record that I have woefully neglected to mention thus far is the awesome new effort by Daughters. Though the self-titled album sees the Providence team tamer than on their previous unhinged efforts, it definitely rules. Stream the whole thing!

COFFINS live May 22nd, 2008 at Mr. Roboto Project in Pittsburgh, PA

Hail of Bullets are currently recording their new LP! The band, which features Martin van Drunen of Asphyx/Pestilence/Bolt Thrower fame, will be their first since 2008's awesome ...Of Frost and War. More details are on the way.

Impaled Nazarene are working on, and will release their new and 11th LP in November 2010. Look for more details on the LP and a live DVD commemorating their 20th anniversary!

Cripple Bastards have a new 7" and a new LP on the way for Relapse! The Italian grind band released the killer Variante alla Morte via FETO (Shane Embury of Napalm Death's label) in 2008. We previewed the record then.

Merrimack has replaced their guitarist and drummer in the wake of recent departures, but the vocalist seat remains empty. Contact the band if you think you can fill the slot:

Horseback have signed to Relapse Records. Congrats boys! Look for Relapse to re-release The Invisible Matter later this summer. Meanwhile, pre-order the LP via Aurora Borealis.

UK blackened doom sickos Dragged Into Sunlight will re-release their Billy Anderson-produced debut LP Hatred for Mankind via Prosthetic Records in July.

Phobia at UGZ Speed Trials 2010

Yet another Justin Broadrick project to look out for, Pale Sketcher:

It occurred to me during the writing of the last Jesu EP 'Opiate Sun' in early 2009, that Jesu, first and foremost, was intended to be a guitar oriented project. The 'electronica' side of Jesu was just an inevitable direction for me, but never satisfied with this battle between guitars and electronica with Jesu, I decided to separate the two directions - Jesu, now, and for the forseeable future, being guitar based exclusively, with Pale Sketcher being the project where I can focus and develop further, the Jesu 'electronica' sound, without need for further fusion or compromise.

Pale Sketcher has posted a preview of "Plans That Fade" (Fade Dub) from the project that will show up on both jesu : Pale Sketches Demixed (due Aug 2010) and the Ghostly By Night Compilation, available via Ghostly International. Stream all of the Ghostly by Night Comp. All of this says nothing about Broadrick's upcoming Blood Of Heroes project with Bill Laswell, Submerged, End.user, and vocalist Dr. Israel, due on Ohm Resistance. Preorder that via the label.

Man Is The Bastard/ Bastard Noise will release unearthed material previously slated for Spazz and Despise You splits from 1998! More details on the reworked recordings are available via the band. In addition, we have word that The Bastard Noise is scheduled to play Brooklyn on June 26th and 28th. According to tour dates on The Communion's myspace they are. No word on the accuracy of the dates, the venues, nor the lineup, but keep an eye out on BV for future updates. The Bastard Noise has a new album on the way, A Culture of Monsters, due this summer on Deep Six Records (for CD) and Housepig/Hear More for the LP version.

While we are on the subject of The Communion, R.I.P. Lee Altomare.

Another date listed on The Communion's myspace is with Circle of Dead Children on July 10th at Rockstar Bar with Buckshot Facelift. So far, CODC doesnt have any new dates, but they do have a new album on the way: Psalm Of The Grand Destroyer on Willowtip. Download a pair of tracks at the Willowtip site, and preorder the record before it hits shelves on June 8th.

One piece of news that I find fascinating, but haven't seen in many places is The High Confessions. The new band featuring Sanford Parker (Minsk, Nachtmystium), Chris Connelly (Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Killing Joke), Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), and engineer Jeremy Lemos will release their new LP Turning Lead Into Gold With The High Confessions, on Relapse. More details are forthcoming, but the teaming alone is pretty fascinating.

Kill The Client at UGZ Speed Trials 2010

French ambient/sludge brutalizers Year of No Light will release Ausserwelt via Conspiracy Records on April 26th. The album, which features the massive "Hi¥erophant" (which recently appeared on The Silent Ballet comp and is above) marks the first appearance of axeslinger Shiran of Monarch!. Preorder the LP. Monarch! recently released Mer Morte domestically via Crucial Blast.

Mammoth Grinder have dropped news about their summer plans which include the "Obsessed With Death" 7" single on Hell Massacre, another 7" due on Cyclopean, and a contribution to the forthcoming "In The Year of Our Lord: A Tribute to Rorschach". The band also plans to hit the road this summer with Innumerable Forms, the side project of Justin Detore, former session member of Funebrarum and current member of Mind Eraser. Innumerable Forms have their own limited 7" also available via Painkiller Records subsidiary Hell Massacre. Look for those tour dates, as this 7" is killer.

Black metal Canadians Akitsa have returned with their first LP since La Grand Infamie four years ago, au crÈpuscule de l'espÈrance, out now via Hospital Productions. Stream a new track at their myspace.

All Pigs Must Die is a new band featuring members of Converge, The Hope Conspiracy, and Bloodhorse. The band is currently working out some new tunes in the studio.

Those dates include May 25th at Bushwick Bike Shop in Brooklyn. Full tour dates are below.
