Sludge outfit -(16)- have premiered a new track from their upcoming full-length, Lifespan of a Moth, at CVLT Nation. Tilted “Landloper”, the new track churns out five-minutes of bludgeoning, groove-laden riffs that blend classic sludge stylings with the band’s affinity for the darker sides of things. Vocalist Chris Jerue issued the following comments regarding the tune:
“The song ‘Landloper’ is a tension-filled little ditty that deals with the inner craving to quit everything and live off the grid. Or take up residence on a blanket at the beach. Or subsist in the doorway of a bank. It doesn’t fucking matter. Just get yourself anywhere else as soon as possible and become a free, unfettered hominid before time runs out. It’s easily the most negative, positivistic song on the record.”
Check out the track now.
Lifespan of a Moth will be released on July 15 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.

Finnish black metallers Baptism have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, V: The Devil’s Fire, at Terrorizer. Titled “Buried with Him”, the new seven-minute stormer conjures hellacious tremolo-picked madness and icy, somber melodies. Frontman Lord S commented on the new song:
“The track ‘Buried With Him’ reveals a part of the spirituality of BAPTISM, our journey through the trials and conquests of this thing called ‘Life’, which is as much relating to ‘Death’ at the same time. Like much of the philosophy behind BAPTISM, it represents the Gnostic side of Satanism, the one holding the values of our true self. We all are buried along with the Master, the Light-Bringer, who dwells deep within man. This song features my old brother Antti Boman from the legendary DEMILICH and the lyrics have penned by our longtime spiritual-member Johannes Nefastos.”
Check out the track after the jump.
V: The Devil’s Fire will be released on July 22 via Season of Mist.

Billed as “Today Is the Day meets ZZ Top“, Chicago’s Something Is Waiting are a new and unique presence in the extreme music world. Comprised of former and current members of Jar’d Loose, (Lone) Wolf and Cub and Barren Heir, Something Is Waiting purvey a singular style that is equal parts infectious and blood-pumping. The band effectively combine noise rock’s penchant for acidic angularity with 70s/80s hard rock swagger for a dirty, eccentric sound. The Something Is Waiting Band is the band’s first official release and, hopefully, it won’t be their last.
