Nashville math rock/post-hardcore duo Gnarwhal (Yautja, etc) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Crucial, via A.V. Club. Titled “Marathon Ripper”, the nearly four-minute tune churns out dizzying, angular guitars and equally discombobulating drum work in abundance. Fans of Drive Like Jehu and Hella, take note. Check out the track after the break.
Crucial will be released on May 12 via Exploding in Sound Records.
The album’s artwork and track listing can also be found below.
Italian doom outfit Ufomammut have announced the release of their eighth studio album. The forthcoming follow-up to 2015’s Ecate, which was recorded at Crono Sound Factory in Vimodrone, Milano, Italy with producer Ciccio and mixed by Fabrizio San Pietro, will simply be titled 8 and will be released on September 22 via Neurot Recordings.
Pre-order information, artwork and track listing are set to be unveiled in the coming months. In the meantime, the band have released an in-studio video which can be viewed after the break along with the band’s upcoming tour dates.
Stream previous full-length Ecate after the break as well.
I was in college again, and the “whatever-core” mentality was in full effect throughout most of it. One of the things was Christian-core, who had great bands like Zao and helped me discover older bands like Trouble (Psalm 9 rules!) but made me worry about antics like throwing bibles to the crowd (Stryper did this in the 1980’s for you youngins who must know) and being preachy. I have never gone to a core genre, but do have a weird set of morality. An example of this is not wearing clothing of Straight-Edge bands, not out of hate ( I love the Promise, XSECTX, and Champion), but due to the fact I haven’t had edge since I was 17 ( I smoke like a chimney and do like my beers.) I get weary of preaching but keep an open mind, and try to discover new music no matter what it may be.
