After Forn released their 2014 offering entitled The Departure of Consciousness, they immediately became the reigning champions of all things slow and heavy in Boston as far as I was concerned. That’s no easy feat, considering the area’s history and penchant for churning out slabs of world-class stoner/doom/post-metal ala Isis and Old Man Gloom back in the day, alongside more recent additions like Morne and Rozamov and Elder. Continue reading

Psychedelic Stoner/sludge rock quartet Void of Sleep have premiered the official lyric video for their new track, “Slaves Shall Serve”, at New Noise. Taken from their forthcoming New World Order LP, “Slaves Shall Serve” features a healthy dose of hazy-eyed stoner grooves and pummeling rhythms. Vocalist/guitarist Burdo says of the track:
“‘Slaves Shall Serve’ is absolutely the most genuine and in-your-face song of the new record and it brings out our most valuable Stoner Rock spirit with bombastic riffs and wicked grooves. Lyrically the song gets in the heart of the concept of the entire album with darkened and occult themes.”

New World Order will be released digitally worldwide on October 18, with CD editions coming October 16 (Europe) and November 13 (North America).

German sludge/doom outfit Black Shape of Nexus announced that they have finished recording and mixing their fourth full-length record and follow-up to 2012’s Negative Black. The new record, titled Carrier, is currently being mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin and will be finalized for release through Exile On Mainstream in the Spring of 2016 on CD and 2xLP. The album will feature six tracks, including a Hellhammer cover, and will be over 50 minutes in length. Vocalist Malte Seidel issued the following statement:
“Carrier is the result of a band being in a constant state of deterioration. Doing a record is a very unpleasant and harmful process for us. Creating Negative Black already was a nightmare, but with Carrier the understanding of the term nightmare needs to be expanded. This is not being said to play the ‘tension and dissent create great art’ card. This album is not art. This album is not musicianship. This album is simply the album that we were able to do under the current circumstances while sometimes asking ourselves if a split-up would not be the better option. The final mix of Carrier is done at the moment.”
More information on the record will be revealed in the months to come. In the meantime, stream Negative Black after the break.
