After a brief period of inactivity and lineup changes, Copenhagen’s Rising return in 2016 with their third and, arguably, best full-length album to date, Oceans Into Their Graves. Though the band’s sound has always run the gamut from sludge to classic heavy metal, Oceans Into Their Graves perfectly combines all of these elements into a unique yet familiar sound that is as punishing as it is infectious. Svbterranenan recently caught up Rising’s head cheese and Indisciplinarian Records founder Jacob Krogholt to talk about this newest release, the new lineup and future plans for both the band and his label.

St. Louis’ The Lion’s Daughter posses a grim, confrontational sound that lies somewhere between black metal, sludge and doom. Some describe it as “blackened sludge”, while the band describe themselves on their Facebook page simply as “unpleasant”. Both terms are applicable here, but in the end it doesn’t matter what listeners choose to categorize the music as because all that matters is that it is menacingly heavy. Existence is Horror, the band’s newest offering, comes three years after their acclaimed collaboration with Indian Blanket, and four years after their last full-length album, Shame on Us All. With each release the band have gradually pushed the limits of their sound and Existence is Horror is the culmination of this sonic refinement. Fans of metal most foul will want to delve deep into this monstrosity.
