Nale Signs With Black Lodge/Sound Pollution

Formed in 2007, Nale immediately made a name for themselves as an energetic metal act that will stop for nothing. With their explosive take on metal and rock and influences ranging from the groovy thrash of Pantera, to the relentless attitude of Motörhead and to the catchy immediacy of Danko Jones, the band has succeeded in combining both past, present and future that feels unique in 2017.

The band has previously released two EPs, a self-titled one (2007 as well as “From Shit To Salvation (2009), the latter produced by Grammy winner Chris Laney (Candlemass, Europe, Crashdïet) in the
legendary Polar Studios. 2012 also saw their critically acclaimed full length debut “Ghost Road Blues” that was procuded by Lawrence Mackrory (F.K.Ü, Darkane).

During the past ten years, Nale has toured with Crucifed Barbara and The Resistance as well as played both clubs and big festivals such as Getaway Rock, Sabaton Open Air and Wacken Open Air.

Nale recently finished their sophomore effort “Death, Skulls, Satan” which will see the light of day early 2018 exclusively through Black Lodge/Sound Pollution.

The Ditch And The Delta Posts New Song “Sleeping Dogs”

With the release of Salt Lake City-based trio The Ditch And The Delta’s debut LP “Hives In Decline” set for release through Battleground Records next week, today new track “Sleeping Dogs” is offered for public consumption.

Engineered by Andy Patterson of Subrosa, “Hives In Decline” shows The Ditch And The Delta exploring further aspects of sound design within a unique take on doom/sludge metal. Employing different tunings, and modal centers, every song the band writes manages to avoid many of the usual doom trappings of excessive feedback, static harmony, and exploratory riffs.

“Hives In Decline” also features a swarm of solos by Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin, Iceburn) on the song “Fuck On Asphalt.” The lyrical content deals with everyday life and the constant suppression and alienation that comes with it. Three men from Mormon-dominated Utah are bound to have a lot of resentment and disdain for the mono culture they exist in daily.

The Ditch And The Delta is actively booking new tour dates in support of the album, including a hometown record release show on May 12th. That is followed by a run of West Coast shows in Sacramento, Eugene, Seattle, Portland, and Boise from May 16th through 20th, supporting Pinkish Black in Portland. A hometown show with Graves At Sea closes May.
