Vacuum Horror

From Copenhagen, Denmark comes the band Town Portal. This trio plays Math Rock and Prog Metal influenced Post Rock.
Their EP Vacuum Horror is a pretty great one. These six instrumental tracks are quite complex. There are a lot of weird rhythms and that is the power of Town Portal. These guys show some great musicianship.
Their music sounds in my humble opinion a bit like bands as Khuda, Red Sparows and Pelican.
The EP is mixed/mastered by the mighty Carl Amburn (Russian Circles, Self-Evident, Riddle Of Steel etc).
Vacuum Horror is a good sounding EP that definitely must be heard! You can download this EP at their Bandcamp site for pay whatever you want. Enjoy!

Town Portal play instrumental rock that crosses borders of genres. Tapping on experience from earlier endeavors in genres like death metal, shoegaze and math rock, the three members bring components of it all into a melting pot, creating a unique niche of original melodies and harmonies, fixated on a skeleton of complex and playful rhythm structures. Under the dogma of forsaking vocals and other superfluous effects, the band throw themselves into a search of new meaningful ways to compose tones over time, with a heavy and dry precision.
After a European tour in 2010 and a minor row of Danish shows, they released their debut EP entitled Vacuum Horror in late 2011. The EP was followed up by another European tour in the beginning of 2012. In Denmark the EP was praised in several large- and small scale magazines, and the opening track Rosini is currently in rotation on national Danish radio, DR P6. A surprising outcome for an instrumental band, with its roots heavily planted in the DIY scenes ethics and methods. At the moment they’re preparing the recording of their debut album set to be released later this year.

The Expiration Of Drowsiness

Thanks again to Andrés F for sharing another great piece of music!
Andrés F is the guy behind the one-man band Culumus Nimbus with the fantastic album Montaña Oscura. Now he has started together with two others with a new project called Agade.
Agade just has finished their Soundproof Demo and it is an awesome piece of work for a beginning band.
These guys play almost Instrumental Heavy Rock with Space and Psychedelic influences and they have a big love for extended songs.
Their sound reminds me a bit of Color Haze and Sons Of Otis. But overall they sound pretty authentic.
This demo is so good produced, i can't hardly call it a demo. These five songs are a proof of what Agade is capable of.
This demo is really impressive and highly recommended! Andrés F is like King Midas, everything he's involved in, turns into gold! This demo proofs that! I really look forward to Agade's "real" album!

We are from Cordoba, Argentina, and began playing on July 2011. At the beginning we had a 4th member (another guitar player), but he left the band, so now we are just a trio.
The line-up is: myself on guitar & vocals, Horacio on bass & vocals and Marky on drums, percussion & vocals. Though this first demo only includes instrumental stuff, we have a couple of songs that are more vocal-driven.
Currently we are working on several songs and on a extended version of the song "Wurdulak" (about 40 - 50 minutes) which probably will became our first work to be recorded.
Our biggest influences are Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, King Crimson, Los Natas, Kyuss, and other stuff like that.

Skunk Cunt

Alright, here are some really freaky tunes from the free download world of Bandcamp!
Manic Zamboni is a quartet from Wisconsin . This band plays grooving Instrumental music with several influences such as Psychedelic and Stoner Rock. Their EP Skunk Cunt is something I've never heard before.
The music of Manic Zamboni (named after an ice resurfacer machine) is based on strange rhythms and nice guitar riffs. These guys show with this EP some great musicianship.
Maybe this is not something for everybody's ears, but this EP does for sure deserve a listen! Check out also their other recordings on Bandcamp. Enjoy!

Missing In Action

From Montpellier, France comes the band Mudweiser. This quartet plays a excellent combination of Stoner Rock, Southern Rock and Hard Rock with a Rock 'n' Roll attitude. Their sound is based on the powerful vocals and the heavy guitar riffs. There is also a solid foundation of drums and bass.
The album Holy Shit is a fine collection of kick-ass and straight forward songs. My favorites are My World, Missing In Action, Hoodoo Man and the brilliant Elvis Loves Me. Enjoy!

Mad At The Soul

Thanks again to the guys of Cerber for sharing this EP!
I've posted the demo Z Prochu by the Polish band Cerber last september here. Now is this trio back with therir EP Mad At The Soul. This EP is pretty much a continuation of what they have done on their demo, but with a better sound!
Cerber present again a original sounding blend of Sludge Metal, Stoner and Hardcore. Musically it is again beautifully brutal and the vocals are afresh nicely raw and rude.
These six tracks are proof of the big step forward that Cerber has made. If you have appreciated the Z Pruchu demo, you will surely like the Mad At The Soul EP! Enjoy!

Band CERBER has been created at the end of 2010 on the remains of band Parias. After the final installation in Olsztyn the bassist- Tajny joins the Wisnia/Luki duo to create the final product- trio in which CERBER lasts till now and is going to last for the time being.

CERBER plays an uncompromised blend of hardcore, stoner/sludge metal and specific, strong groove, not avoiding either melodies or a complete lack of them.

In may 2011 first demo is released- "Z Prochu" ("From Dust") which collects positive reviews as well in Poland as abroad. It is promoted by several worse or better but always energry-driven shows at warmia-masuria with occasional trips to the other parts of the country.

The newest release- 6-track EP entitled "Mad At The Soul" contains both the heaviest and simplest and the most twisted melodic stuff CERBER has ever created. It is meant to open more doors and heads, so the band could spread their hatred.

A Planet On Four Legs

A big thanks to Cris from the band Dope Flood for sharing their EP!
From Larissa, Greece comes the band Dope Flood. These four guys plays Heavy Rock with Stoner, Southern and Metal influences.
According to their Facebook page, they're influenced by the following bands: Kyuss, Down, Crowbar, Hermano, Fu Manchu, Black Label Society, Alice In Chains, The Melvins, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Deep Purple.
On their debute EP named A Planet On Four Legs, presents Dope Flood three impressive tracks. The sound of these songs is pretty massive. The guitar riffs are nice and heavy, the drums and bass are solid and on top of that there are these great and raw vocals.
Dope Flood is yet another great addition to Greek Stoner scene. Enjoy!

Cris(Guitar) came up with he idea of making Dope Flood, and with the help of his friend Manos (Vocals), because they could not express themselves at the band that they were before. So they started to write down material, and progressing it by themselves. Then they started searching for a drummer and a bassist, because Cris would take care of guitars and Manos of vocals. After a lot of searching, Bill came up behind the drum kit, because he liked the music of the band very much.Then Asterios came up with the bass. The lineup was finally complete and Dope Flood were ready. Then, the band entered the studio and recorded its first demo/EP called “A Planet On 4 Legs”. The bands first Demo/EP came out March 15 2011 …Keep The Bongs Up……

Piss Where You Please

I'd like to thank Rudy for sharing this album!
A while ago I've posted the album Well Hunger by the band Kapitan Korsakov here. Now is this trio from Ghent, Belgium back with their new album called Stuff & Such.
This album is a great follow up to their previous album. They're really gone up to the next level.
This album contains twelve varied songs. Some of them are really raw as hell and others are more subdued.
These masters of Alternative/Noise have delivered an awesome new album. If you did enjoy Well Hunger, make sure you listen Stuff & Such at least once. Enjoy!
