Philly/NJ’s newest doom titans Cowardice are something of a local supergroup, comprised of members of Black Urn, Sunrot, Thera Roya, Null&Void, Inertia, Sentient Horror, and Worthless. Respectively the other bands these guys are involved in cover a wide spectrum from post-metal to death metal to sludge, grind, and beyond. Cowardice though, sits solidly in the bracket of crusty-as-fuck, sludgy doom. If you like your heavy music to come at you by way of bands like Thou and Graves at Sea, then their debut release Without Condolence is solidly up your alley.
Virginian record label Robotic Empire have announced the release of yet another Nirvana tribute album. Titled Doused in Mud, Soaked in Bleach, the new record will pay tribute to the band’s first full-length record, Bleach. The album will feature covers by the likes of Thou, Defeater, This Will Destroy You, Daughters and more. The album’s track listing can be found after the break along with Circa Survive‘s cover of “Love Buzz”.
Doused in Mud, Soaked in Bleach will be released on April 16.
The Body and Full of Hell have released the official video for their track “Fleshworks” at Noisey. The noisy, electronic-fueled track, which will appear on their upcoming collaborative album One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, is set to a Mitch Wells (Thou)-directed clip depicting the “abduction” of a pregnant woman. Full of Hell vocalist Dylan Walker comments:
“We went into this track wanting to create a song that was mellow yet driving,…We were certainly channeling a lot of what The Body has been moving towards and a lot of what Full of Hell has been into for some time. Dave, Lee, Seth and Keith [Machines With Magnets] all played drums on this track at the same time. It was a great feeling to have Chrissy Wolpert of the Assembly Of Light Choir singing on the track as well. Our friend Mitch Wells [Thou] created the video with only the lyrics and basic album themes to guide him. He made something that is very different for both bands and something we are very proud of. He captured what we were writing about from an angle that we hadn’t even considered.”
Check out the video after the break along with the bands’ upcoming tour dates.
One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache will be released on March 25 via Neurot Recordings. Pre-order here.
