... a little late on this, but Sky Burial are releasing Where Four Rivers Flow on LP through Replenish Records. I have definitely been digging this a lot lately.
Formed in Tennessee in early 2009, Sky Burial is a four-piece band from Nashville that combines elements of doom, post-metal, and post-rock to create a somber, yet peaceful atmosphere of minimalistic arrangements and passionate segues. The band's heavily instrumental approach to post-metal is sparsely decorated with messages of self-betterment and hope.

...is finally available.
Limited to 350 copies on single sided Clear vinyl and just 50 copies on tape. This might be one of those uber rare releases that you spend a bunch of time tracking down to complete your collection.
'Magpie & Raven' sees Pyramids at their most sprawling and with moments of ultimate bombast. With piano provided by Clay Ruby (Burial Hex) as an integral part, the 25 minute plus track weaves around this motif with massive guitars and a spoken word performance that is truly epic before everything dissolves in a maelstrom of organic noise as Wraiths eviscerate the previous musical section to its very atomic particles before all comes together again and the track ends with a sense of calm conclusion.
This amazing release is presented as a limited edition one-sided clear vinyl LP in a signature AB vellum-style sleeve with artwork by noted tattoo artist Simon Erl. The multi-layered artwork can all be soon as one whole when held up to the light. Comes with an MP3 download card. Housed in heavy PVC outer sleeve.
Grab it here... while you can

So last night I finally saw Old Man Gloom. I literally had been waiting since 1999 when I heard Meditations In B for the first time. They did not disappoint. All the goodies were played (Rape Athena, Gift, hell so many good ones) and even a short version of Zozobra (THEY PLAYED ZOZOBRA!) My mind is still reeling a bit. Here is video of the set.
Grabbed their new album while there. NO is awesome. This version at the shows is a tour edition limited to just 300 copies with hand stamped center labels. This will be available for those not able to make the shows around June 26th. Nine new tracks...
1. Grand Inversion
2. Common Species
3. Regain / Rejoin
4. To Carry The Flame
5. The Forking Path
6. Shadowed Hand
9. Shuddering Earth
Seriously, the show was so good.

This Oede 7" is up for presale at Holy Terror records. The red vinyl will be limited to 200.
Grab it here.
"I get really inspired by sonic outcasts, weirdos and freakazoids, because when they make music, no fucking rules can imprision their vision! OEDE is a one man band from Norway, and he creates his own brand of awesome music that would be almost impossible to peg down. His new EP, entitled One Man’s Trash, will be out early May via Holy Terror Records. Unholy hell, this record is a huge excerise in creativity that is ultra intense and has the bright sun of a southern swamp shining through. OEDE is a crazed voodoo priest trapped in a Nordic body – when you listen to One Man’s Trash a couple of times, it will all make sense to you. He knows how to cook up his own audio discord that is seasoned with cyco blues and black noise. On the opening track, “Stille Stille,” he lays down this demented dirty Cajun riff with a demonic voice floating on top of putrid groove. Just as OEDE knows how to work subversive melody into his song structure, he knows how to torment your braincells with noise! Take his song “8063″ for instance – it’s layers of feedback at war with chaotic distortion, but even under that you hear his tweaked voice with emotive guitar. When I listen to One Man’s Trash, I know I’m playing a very special record that might not be understood the way it should be. I really hope I’m wrong, because honestly, it should end up on some end of the year lists. This dude has an amazing voice that sounds like 1000 demons puking at the same time. OEDE shows he has the ability to shatter what we might consider normal and allow his influences to speak in many different tongues while speaking with one voice! You feel the cold bite of his sound when the blackened noise starts to rip off your face. That all changes with the last song, “Under Creole Skies,” that will awaken spirits in your mind that you never knew existed. One Man’s Trash is another human’s sonic glory – thanks OEDE for having the courage to create such an awesome record!" - CVLTNATION
