Feb. 25, 2014, San Francisco – The Unsemble, a new trio from members of Tomahawk, Einstürzende Neubauten and the Silver Jews, are streaming their self-titled debut (March 4, Ipecac) in its entirety via Pitchfork
“We wanted to work on something that was typically not what we do,” Denison, explained in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone. “Something that’s not so rock and riff-based and overdriven in that way.”
The Unsemble, a 15-song collection recorded in Denison’s adopted hometown of Nashville, meets the legendary Jesus Lizard guitar player’s hopes of a more organic feel with the band effortlessly volleying between careful compositions and improvisation. The result is an album that is experimental, clever and inclusive of numerous subgenres and cultures.
The Unsemble track listing:
4. Act 3
7. Improv 2
9. Improv 3
11. Improv 4
12. Circles Revisited
13. Improv 5
10th studio album out April 15 on Agonia Records
BELGIUM – Belgium’s leading black metal force, Enthroned, has premiered a brand new song entitled “Of Feathers and Flames”. It is the first track to be revealed from band’s upcoming 10th album, Sovereigns, out April 15 on Agonia Records.
Sovereigns, the follow up to the critically acclaimed, Obsidium (2012), was recorded and mixed in Enthroned’s own studio, Blackout Multimedia. The album will be available in: digipack CD, black vinyl, bone-white vinyl with green splatter limited to 100 hand numbered copies and exclusive BOX CD limited to 333 hand numbered copies (including: the new album released in exclusive jewel case edition, embroidered patch, flag and a lighter with band’s logo). Pre-orders are up now at Agonia Records.
Sovereigns drifts from sonic blast beats to oppressive slower parts, melds together aggressive shredding with forceful riffs, and blends satanic whispers with Nornagest’s trademark vocals. The band’s 10th album introduces a new drummer, Menthor, in the place of Garghuf and a new rhythm guitarist, ZarZax.
