Earlier in the month the band released a new track titled “War Master” and now the band has released their music video for said track. This video is weird and… Very SSoS. Check it out below.

Washington D.C.’s ILSA and California’s Seven Sisters of Sleep will bring their doom and gloom to a city near you, considering you live in the Northeastern part of the states.

ILSA and Seven Sisters of Sleep are both currently working on new records that will both be released through A389 Records later this year.
You may remember that the Utah hardcore outfit Gaza called it quits earlier this year. Well it looks the original band members, minus vocalist Jon Parkin, have started a new project. The trio of Casey Hansen (drums), Michael Mason (guitar) and Anthony Lucero (bass/vocals) have formed a new band under the name Cult Leader. No music has been made available for listening as of yet but the band will play their first show on June 13th at The Shred Shed in Salt Lake City, UT alongside Seven Sisters of Sleep, Full of Hell and Rile. If you live in that area, go to that show and tell me how it goes. More info on Cult Leader has it becomes available.

Well fuck, Invisible Oranges are all over their shit, aren’t they? First they got me hard when I posted about how they posted new PLF and now I’ve blown my load over some new Seven Sisters Of Sleep. I know a chunk of us here at American Aftermath love Seven Sisters Of Sleep, so this should come as no surprise: this new track fucking rips! Continue reading
Occult doom outfit Seven Sisters Of Sleep are currently streaming a new track entitled “Reaper Christ”, which is set to debut on the group’s upcoming 2013 sophomore full length record, Opium Morals. “Reaper Christ” sees the group assault with their usual sledgehammer to the jawline sludge whilst adding a bite of speed for extra damage. Stream “Reaper Christ” and try to decipher the A389’s recently leaked “track listing” for Opium Morals after the jump. Continue reading
Children Of God are an absolutely amazing sludgy hardcore band. Think of Seven Sisters Of Sleep pissed off and addicted to vicodin and you’ve almost got the gist of Children Of God. There is something about this band that sets them apart from others. That something is very apparent in a recently released track; this band is very alluring and deep. This track clocks in at almost ten minutes and it’s a powerful, destructive slab of sludge. Continue reading
Droneviolence group Child Brides are back with another hard hitting demo track by the name of “Chains”. The short and eerie bass-heavy track carries with it a sense of uneasy atmosphere as it sludges and drones its way through with its all powerful anthemic beat. Stream the absolutely crushing track below and be sure to follow Child Brides’s Facebook page for coming updates.
Newly self-denominated “drone violence” group, Child Brides(Low Places; Seven Sisters of Sleep), have finally released their first snippet of music. “Prisoner of the Cannibal God” presents the band in a sludgy, driven, and rhythmic fashion encompassed by an overall surrounding atmosphere of hatred and disgust. Overall, the four and a half minute track grinds slow but fucking hard and I can’t wait for new material to be released. Stream the track above.
Hate tinged Low Places(A389 Records) and the groovy, sludge driven, devil worshippers Seven Sisters of Sleep(A389 Records) have recently announced their joint collaboration in a new band, Child Brides. These two towering titans are set to release their debut EP for their new project, entitled Dowery, soon. No teaser tracks or samples have been posted but descriptions such as “ffo : drugs and depression” and “heavy and minimal” should provide ample expectations. Go like their facebook page here and be sure to stay tuned for updates.
I love Summer. Summer is usually a slow time for us metal bloggers because all of the major bands are out on tour or doing festivals. There isn’t a lot happening unless their is some major inter-band drama. When this time of year rolls around however, there is something pretty gnarly to get excited about: Summer Samplers from record labels!
So far there have been three killer Summer samplers released by three pretty stellar labels, A389 Recordings, Century Media Records and Deathwish, Inc. I love bands on all of these labels, so I am definitely going to grab these up. You can read a little about each sampler after the jump, as well as get the download links. [Continue…]
Seven Sisters of Sleep have released a new five minute sludgy/crust beast of a track entitled “Slower Downer”. It’s a crushing and brooding monster that is sure to have even the uptight religious folk head banging. This track will be feature on the band’s upcoming self titled 7″ due out next month via A389 Recordings. Check out the track below.
Well, it’s that time again. Time for year-end lists. Last year I my list was kinda iffy around this time because I just started reviewing albums in September. This time around I have had an entire year to listen to, review and enjoy a shit-ton of records. God knows how many albums I’ve reviewed this year and I honestly don’t feel like counting them all. I know it’s a lot. On top of that, I’ve probably listened to and enjoyed twice as many albums as I reviewed, if not more. I managed to narrow my original list of 50 albums down to 22, that the best I could do. I absolutely love all of these albums and it was a privilege to listen to them and make friends with a lot of these bands.
Of course, as always there are albums that didn’t make my list because I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the albums. Some of those albums are new releases from Burzum, Raspberry Bulbs, Batillus, Full Of Hell, Entrails, Fuck The Facts and Ptahil as well as many, many more. Most of the albums that I didn’t get to include were not included because I didn’t get to give them a thorough listen. I regret this because I know a lot of these albums would be fucking amazing. I guess it’s time to get to the list, huh? This list includes signed as well as independent bands because I see no reason to exclude a band because they lack the support of a major label. A lot of these bands seem far superior to signed ones, so lets just see who ranked where, shall we? [Continue…]
