Philadelphia avant-garde metal quartet Cleric have announced the release of their long-awaited sophomore album, and follow-up to 2010’s Regressions. The new record will be titled Retrocausal and will see a release through Web of Mimicry on December 8. The release was recorded, mixed and mastered by Colin Marston and will feature nine new tracks. The album will also feature guest appearances from John Zorn, Mick Barr (Krallice) and Timba Harris (Secret Chiefs 3). Vocalist/keyboardist Nick Shellenberger offered the following statement regarding the record’s conceptual nature:

Check out the track listing and teaser trailers after the break.
Nullingroots returns with their 4th studio album “Into the Grey” and it’s blackened post-metal done right. Somber and depressive riffs cloud my mind as percussive bliss shatters my thoughts, all while the vocals scream such beautiful nothings loudly and unforgivably. I’ve been slow to listen to much black metal this year, let alone post-rock musings, so hearing this combination of music together and done right was easily something I could enjoy and get down with. Nullingroots gives us only 5 songs on this album but the longer tracks grabs a hold of me and never lets me go.
Weaving together elements of doom, drone, noise and sounds most unsettling, Gnaw create a unique sonic atmosphere that is soul-crushing and psychologically demanding. It would seem each of their releases gets more intense and outre than the last, with their third full-length effort, Cutting Pieces, sitting at the apex of this constant evolution. This 40-minute exercise in aural terror, which is now available through Translation Loss, is perfect for metalheads with masochistic tendencies.
Svbterranean recently caught up with three-fifths of the noise unit to discuss the new record, songwriting and more.
Back in October, Arizona weirdos The Oxford Coma released the follow-up to their well-received 2015 LP, Paris is Mine, titled Everything Out of Tune. Much like its predecessor, Everything Out of Tune continues to build upon the band’s eclectic sound; a mix of psychedelic rock, grunge, stoner, progressive rock and many others. To promote this eccentric album further, the band created a lyric video for the track “Patterns of Thought”, which we at Svbterranean are proud to present to you. The track is an interesting mashup of acid-laced desert rock vibes and angular, jagged guitar work, which is set to video clips with anti-Trump sentiments. If you like catchy, oddball tunes, or dislike Number 45, check out the clip after the break.

Brooklyn’s metal obsessed post-hardcore band Husbandry are embarking on a 2 week tour across the US with fellow New York weirdo rockers Moon Tooth. Starting in Philadelphia, PA on 11/1 and returning to Amityville, NY, on 11/16, the 6000+ mile trek takes them as far west the infamous Viper Room in Los Angeles.
With a few stretches in the van as long as 15 hours, we thought it would be interesting to get Husbandry’s take on life on the road with a multi-part tour journal. Follow Arnau Bosc (bass), Jordan Usatch (guitar), Carina Zachary (vocals), and Andrew Gottlieb (drums) on their epic journey across the United States.
Their new 5-track EP Bad Weeds Never Die, is out 12/1 on Aqualamb Records, but is available early from the band on tour now. Pre-orders for the 120+ page book/cd combo are also available at http://aqualamb.bandcamp.com
Finnish progressive metal quartet Edge of Haze are set to release their third full-length album, Deluge, tomorrow, November 10. In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of one of the catchiest cuts on the record, “Perfume”. The track weaves together jarring rhythms and “djent”-esque grooves, with shimmering “proggy” atmospheres and earworm melodies and hooks. Fans of Tesseract, Periphery and the like, take note.

One-man black metal outfit Nekrasov has premiered his forthcoming eighth full-length album, The Mirror Void, via Decibel Magazine. The album will officially be released this Friday, November 10, via Prosthetic Records, and can be purchased here. The record is a cacophonous blend of noise, industrial and the rawest of black metal that fans of Gnaw Their Tongues and the like will be enamored with. Check it out after the break.
New Zealand post-metallers Spook the Horses have premiered their forthcoming full-length, People Used to Live Here, via No Clean Singing. The album will officially be released this Friday, November 10, via Pelagic Records and can be purchased here. Compared to the swelling post-rock compositions found on 2011’s Brighter, and the sludgy dirges of 2015’s Rainmaker, People Used to Live Here show the band making yet another stylistic shift, opting for a more minimal and atmospheric approach. Check it out in full after the break.
With its fuzz-ridden, crushing guitars, seismic rhythms and anthemic vocals, Australia’s King Zog and their self-titled debut are must-listens for stoner doom enthusiasts.

In preparation for its wax debut, we at Svbterranean bring you the official video for one of the release’s catchiest tracks, “Temple’s Temple”.
