Indian Streaming Full “From All Purity” Album Online

In celebration of its impending release next Tuesday, “From All Purity,” the forthcoming new full-length from Chicago blackened doom misanthropes Indian, is now streaming online.

Get hopeless with the sounds of “From All Purity,” now playing at Pitchfork.com here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

“Recorded at Electrical Audio and Soma Studios in Chicago with engineer/co-producer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Nachtmystium, Yob, Samothrace), the six-track From All Purity is the sound of the earth dying; a corrosive audio collage where tar-black doom unites with sprawling waves of noise to create a near suffocating sensation of hate, suffering, and imminent decay. The true antithesis of easy listening, From All Purity’s earnest severity has reaped critical hails from media both stateside and abroad.

“This Sunday, Windy City residents are encourage to crash the official Indian listening party at iconic heavy metal burger mecca, Kuma’s Corner, which will include the debut of an official Indian burger! In related news, the band will perform at this year’s Roadburn gala with additional North American and European tour dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.”

1/19/2014 Kuma’s Corner – Chicago, IL * Listening Party + Burger Debut
4/12/2014 013 Venue – Tilburg, NL

Culted Streams New Song “Transmittal”

Blackened doomhounds Culted today crush all your hopes and dreams with “Transmittal,” currently murking up the sound sphere at Pitchfork.com here.

The soul-suffocating anti-hymn comes courtesy of the band’s “Oblique To All Paths” long player, scheduled for release via Relapse Records later this month.Comments Michael Klassen (guitar/bass/percussion/noise) of the track:

“‘Transmittal’ is like the title suggests, a song intended to transmit an experience to the listener. Initially, it may lull the mind with hypnotic effects and repetition perhaps blurring vision and numbing consciousness. But it awakens with a scream to spark a flame and illuminate the world with fire, while scorching the wings of angels to finally reveal the collapse and coldness of space to the listener.”

The band’s previously posted track “Illuminati” can also be heard over at this location.
