The Loom Of Time Announces “NihilReich” Album

The Loom of Time is a novel blend of black metal, death metal, and doom music that constantly forges forward, but keeps its roots in the unassailable heritage of rock and heavy metal.

In a world of passionless, formulaic music, Loom gives us a glimpse of what metal might have been had the genres progressed without leaving behind the grit, fire, depth and creativity that trend-chasers never seemed to grasp.

Due out December 2nd via ATMF, The Loom Of Time’s new album “NihilReich” will feature the following track listing:

1. The Ashes of Your Fall 06:38
2. The Pinnacle of Hypocrisy 04:39

Flummox Reveals “Selcouth” Album Details

Tridroid Records is pleased to announce the release of “Selcouth” by Flummox on February 12, 2016. Bassist Blake Dellinger said about the album:

“This album turned out a lot heavier & darker than the last one. We’ve all dealt with all kinds of shit leading up to the recording of this one – everything from mental illness to the loss of friends & family ended up delivering to the overall tone of this album. Which is not to say this album is all dark, brooding, & serious or anything – we are still Flummox after all. This album is not without quirks or humor, even if that too is dark in nature.”

The “Selcouth” album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Selcouth
2. A National Selection
3. Tongue-Saw
4. The Ghost of Ronnie Dio
5. Hummingbird Anthem
6. Nazgu^l Ashes

Goatcraft Releasing New Album “All For Naught”

Forbidden Records has set March 20th as the date on which Goatcraft’s “All for Naught” will be released.

Comprised of equal parts dark ambient, horror movie soundtrack and death metal-inspired violent neo-classical piano, “All for Naught” is music for a new millennium.

The eleven-song tracklisting and cover art of “All for Naught” follows below, along with an upload of the first track “Call Me Judas.”

Call Me Judas
Infinite Death
Goat Will Riot
Gate I
Isolation Ripens

Everything Will Die
The Rape of Europa
Consciousness is a Disease
