Together since 2008 and borne from the wild Appalachian green of West Virginia, Horseburner has never cowered from hard toil. From performing their first live show, self-recording and releasing two EPs (2009’s Dirt City and Strange Giant in 2013), putting on an inaugural tour in 2011 and releasing their debut full-length album, Dead Seeds, Barren Soil in 2016, the band has quite simply, done it all themselves.

Having played hundreds of shows over the past decade, performing alongside acts such as Torche, Weedeater, Goatwhore, Obituary, Corrosion of Conformity, The Obsessed, Karma to Burn and Bell Witch, in 2017 the band reissued their debut album through Hellmistress Records, which quickly reignited that song writing/recording flame, resulting in the gift of new music.

This year, as well as hitting the road for a monster Summer/Fall Tour of the US, the band join forces with Ripple Music, the California-based record label and world leader in Heavy Rock, Stoner, Doom and Heavy Psych to bring you the hard rocking yield of that fruitful and inspired year. The official worldwide release of their brand-new album, The Thief. As the band explains:

“We are thrilled to finally be putting out new music after almost three years and several member changes, and we can’t wait for people to hear, ‘Hand of Gold, Man of Stone’. It was the first song we finished for this new album, and we think it really sets the tone for what’s to come this summer when the full album is released. It’s loud, it’s aggressive, it’s a little weird… It’s also the shortest song. Brevity has never been our strong suit, but there is a much larger story waiting to be told, and this song is just one chapter. We’re even more excited to be teaming up with Ripple Music for the new record. We love so many bands on their roster, it’s such a well curated label. We’re honoured to be joining the Ripple Family, and honestly, that’s what it feels like, a family.”

MAJESTIC MOUNTAIN RECORDS announces the signing of DEVIL’S WITCHES and SAINT KARLOFF for New Release this Summer

Newly formed Swedish label set to issue split LP from two of doom’s rising superpowers!

This summer will see the first official vinyl release from Majestic Mountain Records, a brand-new imprint specialising in rock, stoner, doom and heavy psych.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden and set up by long-serving fan and close follower of the underground, Marco Berg, the label has just announced the signing of Norwegian power trio, Saint Karloff, along with occult/riff worshippers, Devil Witches, who will each contribute one side to a Split LP.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Majestic Mountain family,” explains Saint Karloff’s Mads Melvold. “Marco has been one of our greatest supporters ever since we put out our first album, and we’re looking forward to achieving great things together. It’s an honour being their first release alongside the mighty Devil’s Witches, who we are all great fans of.”

The unusual yet usually allusive Witchdoctor General of Devil’s Witches also wanted to share in the respect given to Berg, with Melvod’s vinyl ally breaking silence to elaborate on his excitement for the project:

“We’re honoured to be the first release of the new independent record label Majestic Mountain Records. The creative freedom that they allow is exactly the kind of company Devil’s Witches embraces. This isn’t just a majestic mountain, nay, it is indeed THE MOUNTAIN OF THE DEVIL’S WITCH!”

With plans already in place for a second release later in the year – a full-length album by Saint Karloff has just been confirmed – stay tuned for more details about both vinyl releases, along with regular updates from one of the scene’s most exciting new labels, Majestic Mountain Records.

Hard-hitting power trio Saint Karloff have been making their mark on the international heavy music scene since the release of their debut album, All Heed the Black God, in 2018. Featuring Mads Melvold on guitar and vocals, Ole Sletner on bass, and Adam Suleiman on drums, this Norwegian band is influenced by the music of yesterday and the world of today. Rising to fourth place on the Doom Charts, generating two mind-bending music videos for ‘Ghost Smoker’ and ‘Spellburn’, and garnering praise from critics all around the world, All Heed the Black God, was inspired by 70’s heavy blues bands like Black Sabbath and early Pentagram, and allowed the band to fuse this vintage sound with modern day stoner rock to create something that was uniquely their own. Now in 2019, the band is raising their song writing to the next level with new material that is heavier, more psychedelic and more complex. As Ghost Cult Magazine pointed out recently, “When one ingredient looks set to steal the show, another comes to the fore with flawless timing, creating an organic flow which sounds wonderfully retro yet urgent. These guys can be huge.”

Devils Witches return following on from multiple sell-out presses of their debut album Velvet Magic and EPs, Porno Witches & Vietnam Veterans and The Audio-Erotic Collection. After two years of grooving and dooming the underground music scene the band has added a guest bassist, Andy Shardlow from The Kings Pistol who joins the mysterious founding member and multi-instrumentalist, Witchdoctor General. Never one to play by the rules while gleefully subverting expectations Devil’s Witches is not slowing down. As Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn explains, “Weird underground heavy metal psych lounge… kinda undefinable. It’s definitely heavy but veers into bubble gummy pop and ’70s lounge music at the drop of a hat. Inspired by drugs, retro porn and the Vietnam war… it’s like an alternative soundtrack to Apocalypse Now”.

DEAF RADIO: Rising Athens Rockers Return with New Single | Sophomore Album Released Late 2019

Listen and find out more about ‘Astypalea’ now at Everything is Noise – http://everythingisnoise.net/premieres/deaf-radio-kick-up-some-dirt-with-astypalea/

Deaf Radio on Facebook | Bandcamp | Instagram | Soundcloud

Chief proponents of hard rock and grievous genre assault, Deaf Radio, the Athens’ based quartet make a much-welcomed return this month with the release of the brand-new single, ‘Astypalea’.

The first song composed, recorded and lifted from their as-yet-untitled second album, which is due for release later this year, ‘Astypalea’ is a captivating glimpse of things to come

Written on the rooftops of old churches in Astypalea, a secluded Greek island in the Dodecanese, lyrically it focuses on the connections and experiences between each band member, with marauding and majestic guitars reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age and Rise Against. A song that begs to be played loud, this is the first recording made by the desert rockers since the release of their successful debut album, Alarm in 2017. Hailed as one of the best alt-rock albums from Greece in recent memory,  it has since gone on to garner hundreds of thousands of streams online, and praise from ecstatic sell-out crowds when performed live across Europe.

Having shared stages with the likes of The Killers, All Them Witches, 1000mods and The Kills, Deaf Radio toured Europe throughout 2017 and 2018 and played in over thirty cities, serving as the perfect test ground material soon to be released on their second full-length album, due for release in the autumn.

Deaf Radio’s brand-new single ‘Astypalea’ is released on 5th June 2019 via ihaveadrum. Listen and find out more about ‘Astypalea’ now at Everything is Noise – http://everythingisnoise.net/premieres/deaf-radio-kick-up-some-dirt-with-astypalea/

ROADSAW: Boston’s Hard Rock Bruisers Are Back, Louder and Heavier Than Ever! | New Album Out Next Month, Share New Song ‘Shake

It’s been a long time coming but the wait is finally over. Boston legends Roadsaw return this June with their eighth full-length album, Tinnitus the Night, a record that’s sure to please their faithful followers, while pulling in plenty of new ones along the way.

With a sound as searing and sleazy today as it was eighteen years ago, the heart and soul of the classic Roadsaw line-up has remained intact with Ian Ross on guitar, Tim Catz on bass and Crain Riggs doubling up on vocal and drum duties. Once again the band holed up in familiar digs at Mad Oak Studios in Allston with Benny Grotto on production. Packed front to back with rippers, trippers, killers and thrillers, from opener ‘Along for The Ride’ through to the stoner opus ‘Peel’, and weighty epic of ‘Midazolam’, Roadsaw dig deep to deliver the goods.

With every tour and new record released, their fans and friends come back for more. On the road, they’ve shared stages big and small on both sides of the Atlantic with the likes of Orange Goblin, Fu Manchu, Queens of The Stone Age, Nebula, Karma To Burn, Black Label Society and many others. They’ve also been regular guests at CMJ and SXSW events and played every metal and stoner festival that would have them.

Tinnitus the Night by Roadsaw is officially released on 7th June 2019 via Ripple Music, www.ripple-music.com. While you wait, stream and share new song ‘Shake’ below:
