Myrkur is an interesting act and I have enjoyed quite a bit of her music over the last few years. Not all, but a bit. When I saw today that she had performed a piano-based rendition of the King Diamond classic “Welcome Home,” I was curious as to how the overall cover would sound. Also, I was worried as to the backlash regardless of my feelings towards it. Luckily for me, I think it’s pretty good. Although it does make me think of the scene in Clerks II featuring this track. Anyway, check out the track below.
I tell ya, folks. I’ve been pretty pleased with music this year (aside from a certain Memoriam release) and I am fucking pumped for the new All Pigs Must Die record. I absolutely love this band and everything they’ve done. Their new album Hostage Animal will be released at the end of October, but they have unleashed a hell of a track titled “A Caustic Vision,” which you can peep below. It’s fucking heavy. Check it out and don’t sleep. Continue Reading
Post-metal act Rosetta will unleash their new album Utopioid tomorrow, but they have decided to slide one last track to really hammer the nail home. This track is titled “Détente” and it is absolutely gorgeous. I am on my third consecutive listen and I just can’t get enough. Be sure to pick up the record if you haven’t already and check out “Détente” below. Continue Reading
Midget Cum Mustache, or MCM, have been a staple of hardcore punk in Northeast Arkansas for a while now. They called it quits a few years ago, but the time has come for the band to reunite and they’re sounding incredible. The band always had a comedic twinge to their hardcore punk, but they have grown immensely over the years and I have been gifted with a new track to premiere for you all. It’s a thundering slab of radness straight out of my area. This track is very socially conscious and is itself a current event piece if you will. The track is called “No Outcry” and I’ve been singing it for weeks now. Enjoy it.
On their self-titled debut, Maryland-based trio The Holy Circle (Locrian, etc) create dramatic and ethereal synth-driven pop soundscapes. The band’s sound lies at the point where 80s moody synth-pop, post-punk and modern, highly-textural shoegaze converge. Its smoky darkness collides with its glimmering melodicism to create an aural atmosphere that is familiar and unique at the same time.
Svbterranean recently caught up with vocalist Erica Burgner-Hannum and synth player Terrence Hannum to discuss the new record and more.
