Italian post-metal outfit Postvorta recently premiered a new track from their forthcoming third full-length album, Carmentis, via Echoes and Dust. Titled “Patau”, the nearly 12-minute behemoth drags the listener into a blackened abyss populated by dense, foreboding atmosphere, leviathanic riffs and soul-crushing groove. Black Table vocalist/guitarist Mers Sumida also lends her acidic screams to the track’s climatic second half. Check out the track now.
Carmentis will be released on May 14 via Third I Rex.
The Body – No One Deserves Happiness
With the release of I Shall Die Here and their slew of recent collaborations, The Body has somehow gotten even more experimental with their already experimental style of noise/metal/whatever by straying into catchier, even poppier territory. The interesting combination of noisy, yet highly structured songwriting as well as frequent collaborator Chrissy Wolpert’s sung vocals mixing with Chip King’s signature distorted howls in the background reinforces that feeling of genres intermingling, but also creates something new and original.
New York post-black metal outfit Black Table have premiered their forthcoming album, Obelisk, at Noisey.

New York post-black metal quartet Black Table have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Obelisk, at Decibel. Titled “Helm”, the lumbering seven-minute tune weaves together melancholic dirges with flurries of black metal, and towering post-metal marches. Check it out after the break.
Obelisk will be released on October 14 via Silent Pendulum (U.S.) and Moment of Collapse (Europe).
On their 2012 debut EP, Sentinel, Black Table left nothing on the table. The New York/New Jersey-based quartet weaved together elements of post-metal, doom and black metal with technical arrangements and atmospheric tendencies. It was a short and satisfying release that was foreboding, chaotic and reflective when it needed to be. Four years after Sentinel‘s release, Black Table return with its full-length successor, and a new direction. On Obelisk , the sludge, doom and dissonant angularity all take more of a backseat as the band explore the depths of their post-black metal influences. The result is a 40-minute monolith that is consistently flooring and dismal throughout
New York’s Black Table have announced the release of their debut full-length album. The new record will bear the title Obelisk and will be released on October 14 via Silent Pendulum Records (U.S.) and Moment of Collapse Records (Europe). The album was recorded with Billy Anderson and will feature eight tracks of atmospheric/progressive/post-black metal rife with lyrical themes dealing with, according to vocalist/guitarist Mers Sumida, “human evolution, and looking at my own depression as a human condition as explored through mythologies of various cultures, from Aztec to European.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break, along with the official video for the track “Obtuse” (via Metal Sucks).
