Bludded Head Announce Release of New Album Reign In Bludd

Reign in Bludd is released on 6th October 2014 via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia

LISTEN to ‘Shitsucker Blues’ by Bludded Head via SoundCloud

“Bludded Death exerts an unsettling, furious power, a mesmerizing study in pushing music to extremes.”
DFW.Com

Hailing from the North Texan city of Denton, Bludded Head was initially formed out of an appreciation for Henry Cow’s avant-garde leanings, La Monte Young-inspired minimalism and the sheer punishing volume of doom metal.

Yet this past year it has also served as something of a vibratory vessel of discovery for its mercurial founding member Nevada Hill. A vessel that today, from where we stand and Bludded Head perform, continues to turn out some of the loudest, loneliest and most vulnerable noises you’re likely to hear in 2014. A remarkable truth when you consider that Hill was diagnosed with melanoma – a rare form of skin cancer – in August 2013.

While Reign In Bludd, Bludded Head’s third and unquestionably best album to date picks up where Bludded Head (released earlier this year via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia) left off in its anti-commercial sentiment and cathartic bummer jams, never before has their sound felt so sincere or visceral. From the densely weathered riff that lumbers through ‘Shitsucker Blues’, lyrically drifting in and out of abject consciousness but sonically landing a punch somewhere between the The Body, Noothgrush and Corrupted, to the perfectly pitched cover of Codeine’s ‘Pea’ Reign In Bluddis as about as transformative as they come.

Recorded by Matthew Barnhart at Electrical Audio while the band were in tour throughout May of 2014 Reign In Bludd will be released on 6th October 2014 via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia on 180g audiophile and limited to 300 copies.

More Praise for Bludded Head:

“As fun as it is to cover everything Carcass and At the Gates are up to, occasionally it’s nice to shine a light on a truly underground band. Dallas’s Bludded Head definitely falls into that category, scooping out unpleasant sludge with a tendency towards the minimalist. Their misery comes from a real place, too – singer/guitarist Nevada Hill has been battling cancer and the ravages of chemotherapy.”
Decibel Magazine

“Besides having an awesome band name (that perfectly suits their sound), and killer song titles (‘My Ice Cream Fell On The Ground And Someone Ate It!’, ‘Rotten Demon Shit’, ‘Boo Boo Halloween’), these NY knuckle draggers specialize in the sort of down tuned caveman creep we can’t ever seem to get enough of.”
Aquarius Records

“Doom bands come and go, many sounding similar to one another, with the greatest emphasis being placed on how far apart those gut-punch downbeats can be spaced; not so for Bludded Head, who seem to write, arrange and execute great songs, several worlds apart from the sameyness that characterizes many of their peers in the genre.”

Austin power trio THE WELL to unleash debut album SAMSARA this September

The-Well-photo-by-andy-ray-lemon-4

“The Well was responsible for the most disturbingly beautiful groove-laden doom I’d ever heard in… well, I’ve never really heard anything quite like this.”
The Impaler Speaks

“The Well is our Metal Band of the Year for 2013!”
Sonic Vault

With a progressive sound that stems from a nostalgic desire to blend different musical styles as diverse as Joy Division and Blue Cheer, Austin-based power trio The Well redefine heavy rock by merging massive riffs with sophisticated melodies.

The group blossomed when guitarist/vocalist Ian Graham was fired from his previous band. Determined to redirect his musical focus, Graham hooked up with bassist Lisa Alley and the two began picking out riffs in their east-side garage. Rounding out their sound, they stole drummer Jason Sullivan from Graham’s old band in a tale of vengeance and karma. His solid groove and reckless tribal beat gave the three-piece their ideal primal attack.

Due to their psychedelic doom edge, The Well reaps comparisons to Black Sabbath, Sleep, Electric Wizard and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. As fans of cult horror films, they embrace the sinister, revel in dark themes and find inspiration in haunting echoes. The dual vocals of Graham and Alley evoke an ancient language that carries a mystic spell. Daunting rhythms and heavy guitars often accentuate their chilling chants. In the spring of 2012 The Well’s first studio experience was to record their debut 7″ at the Barbeque Shack with Tia Carrera’s Jason Morales. Limited to 300 copies, Seven was pressed on mixed vinyl with several cover options featuring hand-drawn art that emulated a few of the band’s favourite album covers. Nicknamed the “rip-off” series, the single sold out quickly becoming a favourite among European collectors.

By the fall of 2012, The Well were back in the studio again, this time at Ohm Recording Facility with Producer Mark Deutrom (Melvins, Sun O)))) and Engineer Chico Jones to record their debut album. However, an opportunity to record with Converse Rubber Tracks during SXSW 2013 resulted in the epic track ‘Eternal Well’ and sparked the idea of an EP. First Trip was pressed with a handful of songs from the Ohm sessions together with ‘Eternal Well’ just in time for their West Coast Summer Tour. Due to the energy and excitement of their live shows, the vinyl sold out quickly. With each repressing, a different hand-screened cover was printed until all four limited editions sold out. One of their most rabid fans was RidingEasy Records label boss Daniel Hall who recently signed the band.

Inspired by early ’70s psych, heavy rock, blues and proto-metal, The Well has created a sound that reflects doom, punk and horror all rolled together into one ghostly rock soundtrack. Their full-length debut Samsara is their strongest collection of songs to date. Produced by Mark Deutrom and released through RidingEasy Records, the masterwork is a stripped down, electric blues fuzzfest and begs to be heard live. After a steady touring schedule that’s seen the band share the stage with international acts such as: Kadavar, Orchid, Fu Manchu, High On Fire, NAAM, Orange Goblin, Pentagram and Dead Meadow guarantees The Well are contenders.

“Writing dark, ominous music is how I deal with life,” admits Ian. “When we play live it’s like expelling the demons.” At a time when rock music is fading among the masses, The Well injects an intoxicating dose of raw adrenaline into a fatigued genre. Their nostalgic reverence, simple structure and modern expression put them at the forefront of today’s heavy rock.

Samsara is released via RidingEasy Records on 23rd September 2014

Hard rockers HEAT announce release of new album Labyrinth

“Heat are more than able to match up to the likes of Witchcraft and Graveyard.”
The Sleeping Shaman

“Everything flows with a natural grace as if the band are writing intuitively through telepathic jam sessions.”
Roadburn Festival

Following on from the success of their 2012 self-titled debut, This Charming Man Records is pleased to announce the release of Labyrinth, the second album by the Berlin-based hard rock outfit.

Heat are unmistakably taken with a time when all great records came adorned with monochrome swirls and elaborate sleeves depicting worlds of necromancy, witches and cosmic encounters.

Featuring former members of The Hara-Kee-Rees, Samsara Blues Experiment and Grandloom their self-titled debut on Electric Magic Records was a heavy-blues driven journey into the very heart of the 1970s. Which, regardless of your particular predilection for classic rock saw the Berlin five-piece strike every chord.

On their follow up – much like Swedish hard rock revivalists Graveyard and Horisont – Heat continue to revel in the buzz of audacious twin guitar solos, Hammond organs and telepathic band jams.

Driving tracks like ‘Siamese Smile’, ‘Free World’ and ‘Barbarossa’ pack unabashed guitar spectacles atop big drum fills, rolling bass lines and Patrick Fülling’s strutting vocal front, often over extended compositions that run the gamut of twentieth century rock history. Bursting with shuffling bluesy boogies and dark, introspective moments that owe a sizeable riff or two to Deep Purple, Wishbone Ash, Atomic Rooster and Jerusalem Labyrinth is an unstoppable force for fans of British prog, hard US rock and NWOBHM.

Labyrinth will be officially released on 29th August, along with the reissue of the band’s debut (with exclusive new artwork) via  via This Charming Man Records.

Heat:
Marcus Töpfer – Drums
Ingo Börner – Guitar
Marco Rischer – Guitar
Patrick Fülling – Vocals
Richard Behrens – Bass
