“As young men growing up in the Pacific Northwest we lived on a steady diet of grunge. Stone Temple Pilots is one of our favorites, dead and bloated is a particularly heavy song from my our childhood. We have been talking about covering it for years, recently we made that a reality. ENJOY!!!”

Bible Black Tyrant Signs With Argonauta Records

Argonauta Records has inked a deal with Bible Black Tyrant to release a new album this coming February:

“We’re excited to welcome in our roster U.S. supergroup Bible Black Tyrant, an oppressive sonic endeavor that features Tyler Smith, Aaron D.C. Edge and David S. Fylstra (members of Eagle Twin, Lumbar, KVØID, Form of Rocket, Minor Fret, Wasting Seasons, Iamthethorn, etc.). Their impressive album ‘Regret Beyond Death’ will be released during February 2018 on CD/DD (Argonauta Records) – vinyl (Cheddar Brothers Records), cassette (Anima Recordings).

“Beginning with a crushing density, Bible Black Tyrant’s ‘Regret Beyond Death’ offering immediately transports the listener into the dark forests of the Pacific Northwest at dusk; conjuring images of the sun setting against indecipherable, deciduous silhouettes. The air thickens as we continue a climb along a gently worn route to an unknown, undisclosed location.

“As the journey – and the record – lengthens, we are granted a strong scent of smoke and hemlock, of moss. Fear swirls ’round us now, fusing with the clamorous chants of a distant, uprising swarm, a loaded weight of atmospheric composition. Onward, and as the album nears its climactic conclusion, Bible Black Tyrant’s simultaneously oppressive and liberating mass projects a clear message written in the smoldering ashes: ‘Walk this path with us.'”

Seer Announces New Album “Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void”

Art of Propaganda has set July 7th as the international release date for Seer’s second album, “Vol. III & IV: Cult of the Void.”

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Seer was formed in the fall of 2014 as the days drew short and a chill set in the air. Very much a product of the environment, Seer draws inspiration from the natural power of the Pacific Northwest and harnesses it into epic, expansive doom-sludge.

Feel that power in visual form with the new video for “They Used Dark Forces,” which can be seen below. The new album’s full track listing is as follows:

1. Ancient Sands (Rot Preacher)
2. Acid Sweat
3. They Used Dark Forces
4. Burnt Offerings
5. I: Tribe of Shuggnyth
6. II: Spirit River
7. III: Passage of Tears
8. ?????

This first year included 10 additional showings in the Pacific Northwest with Antaeus, Negura Bunget, Bell Witch, Christian Mistress, Sabbath Assembly, and more.

In spring 2016, debut album “Devoid of Light” will be released via Eisenwald, self-recorded by the band & then mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). It features the artwork of Kris Verwimp and band photography by Peter Beste.

In support of this new album, Uada is confirmed to play the Northwestern Black Circle Festival again, this time with Absu and will mark the kick off date for a west coast tour. Check out the advance track “Black Autumn, White Spring” below.
