Seattle’s Dust Moth (ex-These Arms Are Snakes) have announced the release of their debut full-length record and follow-up to their acclaimed 2014 EP, Dragon Mouth. The new record will be titled Scale and will see a release through The Mylene Sheath on July 22. The album was recorded by Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, ISIS, Mastodon) at Red Room Studio in Seattle and mastered by Ed Brooks at RFI. The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen after the break.
A new track from their record, titled “Lift”, was recently premiered by NPR. The nearly eight-minute tune conjures slow-burning, muscular guitars and anthemic melodies that propelled by Irene Barber’s commanding vocals. Check it out after the break.
CVLT Nation recently premiered the new split between Canadian sludge outfit Dopethrone and Saint Louis blackened doomsayers Fister. The record is officially out now and can be purchased digitally (name your price) here. A 7″ pressing will see a release later this year via Dopethrone‘s own imprint, Riff Dealer Records. Dopethrone‘s “Host” churns out all of the grimy grooves one can handle, while Fister‘s “The Failure” unleashes oppressive heaviness that will collapse listeners under its weight. Check out the release after the break.

Gruesome have premiered the official video for their track “Dimensions of Horror” at Bloody Disgusting. The track, which comes from their upcoming EP of the same name, is set to a delightfully cheesy B horror movie inspired clip created by Iron Sight Cinema. Gruesome‘s Matt Harvey had the following to say:
“For our first foray into the realm of video, we are very stoked to give you the title track of our new EP, Dimensions Of Horror. The video, much like everything we’ve done with Gruesome, harkens back to a simpler time, when you could reliably find a guy with a mustache kicking back on the hood of his Trans Am blasting ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the parking lot of your local 7-11. A time when mullets and latch-key kids roamed lands gripped with ‘Satanic Panic,’ and you could still buy acid at high school. Yes, the 1980s. Those were the days when Chuck Schuldiner’s individual thought patterns turned toward mutilation and rituals involving zombies. We hope that this proudly ‘B’ video grips you with fear, or at least makes you nostalgic for the halcyon days of big white high-tops, bigger hair, and first generation of death metal. So come with us and enter the dimensions of horror.”
Check out the video after the break.
Dimensions of Horror will be released on May 20 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
