Detroit psycho punks Child Bite have announced the release of their fourth full-length record. The record will be titled Negative Noise and will be released on April 1 via Housecore Records. The record was produced by Philip Anselmo and will feature 12 new tracks, totaling 47 minutes in length. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break, along with the band’s current touring schedule.
Ambient desert rock outfit Zun (Yawning Man, Ides of Gemini) have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Burial Sunrise, at Spin. Titled “All For Nothing”, the track unleashes hazy-eyed, psychedelic guitar work that wavers like heat waves in the deserts, and smoky, laid-back vocals. Check out the hypnotic tune here.
Burial Sunrise will be released on March 25 via Small Stone Records. Pre-order here.
Midwestern power electronics outfit Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries has premiered its upcoming full-length, Even Spilled Seed Crawls Toward the Womb, at Invisible Oranges. The record will officially be released this Sunday, February 14, via Annihilvs Power Electronix. Pre-orders can be found here. The album is dark, abrasive and haunting. It features elements of harsh noise, industrial and ambient all wrapped up into one bleak, miserable package. Fans of early Swans, Prurient or Wreck and Reference should take note. Check it out here.
Transcendental doom trio Eight Bells have premiered their new album, Landless, at Revolver. The album is officially out today via Battleground Records and can be purchased at this location. The record is a multifaceted one and simply calling it “doom” is a bit of an injustice. Doom elements are definitely there, but so are nuances of black metal, post-rock and more. Check out this interesting and enthralling release now.

Swedish grind outfit Gadget have premiered a new track from their highly-anticipated upcoming album, The Great Destroyer, at Metal Sucks. Titled “I Don’t Need You – Dead and Gone”, the new track churns out over five minutes of brutality. Hyper-speed drumming and equally rapid-paced, menacing guitars deal the ultimate beating during the track’s first half. Afterwards, the band embarks on this grimy, sludgy excursion that is swelling with layers of sound. Check out the blistering tune now.
The Great Destroyer will be released on March 4 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
Swedish post-metal titans Cult of Luna and Ex-Made Out of Babies vocalist Julie Christmas have premiered a new track from their upcoming collaborative album, Mariner, which is due out on April 8. Titled “A Greater Call”, the eight minute track begins with ethereal melodies and soundscapes, which eventually bleed into transcendental post-metal death marches. The band commented on the new tune:
“A Greater Call is the link between the city and the void above.
Imagine walking up to your vessel and how the excitement grabs hold of you. The feeling of uncertainty.
Are you even going to be able to push through the atmosphere in one piece?
A last breathe before blast off and then we leave.
The song is about how humanity is cutting its losses and leave a dying planet. Its only hope lies above.
Although it might not be representative of the album as a whole and Julie’s involvement.
It is where the journey starts.”
