To Bloom, To Wither by Sundaug

2017-03-10 06:16:10 UTC

New

Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.  

"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.

Debut album - Ordeal & Plight by Ordeal & Plight

2017-02-11 04:32:33 UTC

New

Ordeal & Plight are an instrumental Post-Rock/Doom Metal band from Germany.
 Formed in 2012 by K and black metal band Black Horizonz guitarist H, Ordeal & Plight began as a project experimenting on combining post-rock with black metal and doom metal elements. Joined by bass guitarist R, the band began recording their first demos in the Dunkelkammer Studios in Kamen, Germany, leading up to their self-titled debut record. Mixed and recorded at Fragment, Dortmund, in 2016, the album Ordeal & Plight was released on Chaosthrone Records on January 13th, 2017.

Three-piece post-rock/doom metal band Ordeal & Plight released their self-titled debut album on Chaosthrone Records. Almost 5 years in the making, the album explores contrasts: uplifting post-rock anthems ("Your Patience") arise from devastating swamps of doom ("Nine Years"), crisp melodies soar over heavy, gloomy chords. Coming from different musical backgrounds such as jazz, folk, or black metal, Ordeal & Plight's members experiment with each of them to create a sound that is both light and clean, heavy and dark, and takes listeners to muse over the boundaries and overlaps of memory and premonition ("Mnemosyne"/"Lethe"), and life and death.

Track List

  • Mnemosyne - 04:30 
  • Patron Of The Embalmer - 03:54 
  • This Trip Is Forever - 04:02 
  • Nine Years - 06:09

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
