Lovingly pinched from Infernal Masquerade Webzine: Rounding up our promo package from LADLO productions, today we have another exciting new outfit from France under the moniker Regarde Les Hommes Tomber.
With their self-titled debut release, this band manages to blend elements of Neurosis and Amenra and create a very tight and devastating Sludgy Post-Black Metal. If you like heavy and powerful guitars that create a huge wall of sound, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber is the band for you.
With the hypnotic droning of the bands opening track, ‘Prelude’, we immediately feel their wrath with punishing riffs and skillful drumming. The Post-Rock / Metal elements thrown into the mix really shake things up and keep their sound very fresh. In full Neurosis / Amenra worship mode, ‘Wanderer of Eternity’ delivers a full blast of power in the shape of harsh vocals and solid guitar work, never letting go of their heaviness and brutality.

Lovingly pinched from Beard Rock: Everything is fuzzy. I cannot focus. Something has got me pinned down. Hands gripping my legs. My ankles are near my head. Legs pressed down. I’m naked except for my Holy Mountain t-shirt. My nipples are showing, the left one being licked. Who is on […]

Praise for Godspeed You! Black Emperor‘s Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Godspeed You! Black Emperor are one of those rare bands who enjoy a slavish dedication from their fans, a nearly unrivaled level of hero worship style extreme fandom, the sort of thing enjoyed by very […]

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? […]

Praise for Hypomanie‘s Calm Down, You Weren’t Set On Fire from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: The latest from this Dutch one man shoegaze black metal band, whose A City In Mono record was a big hit around here, with it’s fuzzed out dream poppiness and weirdly looped sounding construction. Well […]

Praise for Burial Tree‘s Rituals from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: Rituals is the second full-length from these aQ pals, local atmospheric psychedelic heavies Burial Tree, whose last album, Outer Dark, was a big hit around here. And thankfully, Rituals takes up right where Outer Dark left off, in fact if […]

As we move towards the end of 2011, here’s a worthy record that we overlooked the first time around earlier this year. Lovingly pinched from Sonic Abuse: It’s Sunday morning. I’m tired and am already on my third review of the day. I was going to pack it in, for […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: For their fourth album, Empros (first directly for Sargent House), the instrumental three-piece Russian Circles returned to producer Brandon Curtis of The Secret Machines, who also helmed 2009’s Geneva. The reasons why are fairly obvious: What the Chicago outfit was able to accomplish with Geneva […]

Lovingly pinched from Metal Underground: The Icelandic heathens that make up Sólstafir continue to push past the boundaries of their origins, hitting a serious landmark in sound on their fourth full-length album, Svartir Sandar. A description like “post-black metal” doesn’t even begin to do the album justice, as these songs […]

Lovingly pinched from Sea of Tranquility: Isis is one that harder to categorize bands I’ve reviewed. With every release they evolved and altered their sound. Generally lumped in with post-rock /post-metal and hardcore metal bands, they do draw from those influences while still adding their own stamp. Live V is […]
