Old Man Gloom Bring Their Supergroup Seminars To Roadburn Festival 2014

Posted on Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

We are ecstatic to announce that Aaron Turner-lead Hydra Head supergroup Old Man Gloom – also featuring Nate Newton of Converge and Caleb Scofield of Cave In – will be bringing their meditative post-sludge seminars to Roadburn 2014.

Following their 2012 reactivation after an 8 year hiatus and their resultant NO album, Old Man Gloom have come back as powerful and wilful as ever.

Balancing piledriving sludge, finely wrought post-metal, windswept desert rock and ear-bleeding electronics in a compelling and seriously heavy-duty package, the individual members – completed by Santos Montano on drums – bring their collective chops and hardcore experience fully to bear in creating a true colossus of hulking, bruising power.

Old Man Gloom will be ringing in the end-times and making your christmases come early on Saturday, April 12th at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Roadburn Festival 2014 will run for four days from ThursdayApril 10th to SundayApril 13th 2014 at the 013 venue in TilburgThe Netherlands.

Album of the day: Isis – Live VI 11.16.07

Posted on Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Lovingly pinched from Scene Point Blank: A year after their dissolution, post-metal powerhouse Isis is preparing to digitally re-release its entire live discography on a fortnightly basis throughout the summer of 2011. The set of five—wait, hold up a moment. I finished those last summer. What’s with the new release? […]

Album of the day: Old Man Gloom – No

Posted on Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Lovingly pinched from Drop-d: Resume The Gloom. So goes the credo associated with Old Man Gloom. After an eight year long slumber, the sludge “supergroup” awoke in stunning fashion with a series of special shows across the US, with the line-up of Aaron Turner (ex-Isis, Mamiffer, Split Cranium et al), […]

Album of the day: Locrian & Mamiffer – Bless Them That Curse You

Posted on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Praise for Locrian & Mamiffer‘s Bless Them That Curse You from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Killer collaboration from these two aQ faves, both trafficking in a similarly ominous abstract minimalism, and who together have conjured up something pretty epic. The opening track begins as if to creep abjectly through some […]

Album of the day: Pharaoh Overlord – Lunar Jetman

Posted on Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Lovingly pinched from The Inarguable: The Repetition is a difficult beast to wrangle. From the premier of Steve Reich’s Music for Eighteen Instruments, the new wave of post-modernity screamed “excessive minimalism” in praise of its stylistic progenitor. Of course, not many people could perfectly emulate Reich’s pulsing, shifting, harmonically dense […]

Album of the day: House of Low Culture – Poisoned Soil

Posted on Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Praise for House of Low Culture‘s Poisoned Soil from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: It’s been a while since we’ve heard from House Of Low Culture, the one man experimental / drone / soundscaping project of Aaron Turner, he of Hydra Head Records, Sige Records, Mammifer, Isis, Twilight, etc. This one […]

Album of the day: Burning Witch – S/T (4LP + DVD)

Posted on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Praise for Burning Witch‘s S/T (4LP + DVD) from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: We’ve got just a handful of these expensive new Burning Witch 4LP/DVD boxes, they’re fancy and SUPER limited, so odds are once we sell out we won’t be able to get more. Seems likely that only super […]

Album of the day: Wolves In The Throne Room – Celestial Lineage

Posted on Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Lovingly pinched from CVLT Nation: The tension worldwide is palpable as Wolves In The Throne Room prepare to release their fourth full length album Celestial Lineage (Southern Lord). Expectations for this album are high to say the least. WITTR quickly rose to prominence with their 2007 LP Two Hunters. The […]

Album of the day: Mammifer / House of Low Culture / Merzbow – Lou Lou… In Tokyo (2LP)

Posted on Friday, July 8th, 2011

Praise for Mammifer / House of Low Culture / Merzbow‘s  Lou Lou… In Tokyo from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Another impressive release on Aaron Turner’s post Hydra Head label Sige, this one a three way live tag team between Turner’s House Of Low Culture, Mamiffer and Japanese noise legend Merzbow.
