Greytomb Premiere New Song “Null” From Upcoming New EP “Monumental Microcosm”

Australian atmospheric black metal act Greytomb premiered the second track of their upcoming EP “Monumental Microcosm”, which will be released as a gold-embossed box set and digipak CD on December 19th via Transcending Obscurity Records. They share a member of Somnium Nox and Norse and the music is just as dark and emotive as you would expect. They’ve had this to say about it:

“The winding structure pulls you deeper into an inward place, the cold and dark tone clinging to you like a familiar gloom. The narrative elements compel exploration, and each new listen will reward inquisitive ears.”

Otep Streaming New Track “In Cold Blood”

Today the third song from Otep’s “Generation Doom” comes online. Check out “In Cold Blood” below. Otep had the following to say to AfterEllen.com about the song:

“There are nights I think of you. Suffering in the sweet amnesia of nostalgia. Then I remember the cold loneliness of being by your side & I hear my own voice whispering in the night, ‘There’s something wrong with me for thinking something’s right with you. In cold blood. In cold blood.’ This bit of writing created the song ‘In Cold Blood.’ It was really hard to share something so private and personal but I’m glad I did.”
