Conan Front Man Reveals New Band Dos

Conan front man Jon Davis is pleased to reveal his new lo-fi project Dos will soon be recording a debut album at Skyhammer Studio.

Jon commented that the project, which also features Joe Allen of Kurokuma on drums, “focuses on the most simple of musical currencies, heaviness. Heavy feedback, heavy cymbal hits, heavy repetition. We are heavy metal, in the simplest form.”

More details on the project will be made available in the near future. In the meantime you can check for further updates on the band’s Facebook page.

Dead In The Manger Releasing New Album “Cessation”

20 Buck Spin begins confirming the label’s massive 2015 release schedule with the announcement of “Cessation,” the upcoming debut full-length from mysterious entity, Dead In The Manger. The label comments:

“In early 2014, a damaging new musical force made itself apparent, when Dead In The Manger appeared seemingly from out of nowhere with their debut EP, Transience, a six-movement EP which brandished a monstrous blend of extreme metal with elements born of black/war metal realms as well as standards of the grindcore movement in a seamless and endlessly destructive alloy.

“Dead In The Manger follows up the Transience debut with six new stages in the grief process, resolved in their adherence to dispiriting melodic atmosphere and frenzied black carnage, ever reaching upward yet inevitably pulled down into the mire.

“Whether grinding forth in a cascade of blinding black metal violence or cloaked in despondent post-rock gloom, Cessation leaves no space for hope, compelling the paradoxical embrace of suffering. As before, song titles, production credits, individual personalities and origins and all impertinent topical self-gratification remain trivial in service of the one true purpose for Dead In The Manger; internal disorder from external domination. The machinery of plutocratic slavery, churning and grinding the spirit of life until little remains but the last gasp of a doomed humanity, a cessation of the primal light in an absurdist nightmare.”

On February 3rd, 2015, “Cessation” will hit on digital and vinyl release via 20 Buck Spin. The cover artwork, courtesy of Misanthropic Art (Secrets Of The Moon, Hooded Menace, Attic) has been issued alongside the virtually anonymous track listing in the meantime. Audio samples and further updates on the album will be released as the grim dawn of 2015 nears.
