Nightfell Unveils “Darkness Evermore” Album Artwork, Track Listing

As 20 Buck Spin prepares to release “Darkness Evermore,” the sophomore full-length from Portland-based Nightfell, the label has issued the cover art, track listing and confirmed vinyl release date for the album.

Nightfell is the tumultuous project founded by Todd Burdette (Tragedy, His Hero Is Gone, Warcry) and Tim Call (Aldebaran, Mournful Congregation, Sempiternal Dusk, Saturnalia Temple), who here forge their perceptions into a harsh, epic, and wholly different delivery than any of either artists’ prior or other current bands.

20 Buck Spin will issue “Darkness Evermore” on CD and digital platforms on September 11, with the 12″ LP now confirmed for an October 23 street date. The track listing for the record along with its cover art created from paintings by Carl Auge (His Hero Is Gone) has been issued in advance of its release and can be seen below.

Nightfell Announces New Album “The Living Ever Mourn”

Southern Lord today confirms the impending release of “The Living Ever Mourn,” the debut LP from Portland-based group Nightfell. The label comments:

“Nightfell unites Portland, Oregon musicians Todd Burdette and Tim Call. Recorded and mixed at Red Lantern Studios by Evan ‘Maus’ Mersky, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, The Living Ever Mourn is the debut full-length born of this union of notable extreme music perpetrators, rending over forty minutes of purely epic metal, bridging morose heaviness with melodic destruction.

“Envisioned and executed in a period of grief, delirium and loss of life, the atmosphere and lyrics mirror the ensuing emptiness while simultaneously embracing the dichotomous power in the unwavering and eternal force of Death. At times the album embodies the guttural, bleak essence Burdette’s musical endeavors have innovated since the mid-90s, while other segments undoubtedly breathe with the murky, crushing, Northwestern oppression Call has been associated with.

“The entire album channels unrest through its organic delivery, at times integrating choral mantras, noise-infused ambience and thundering death marches, all combining into an a brutalizing opus that defies debilitating genre tags.

“While the final street dates are still being confirmed, The Living Ever Mourn will arrive sometime in May 2014, with Southern Lord handling the CD and digital versions, while Southern Lord and Parasitic will co-release the massive vinyl version. Stand by for transmissions on the album’s official release dates as well as music from the LP and more to be issued in the near future.”

The track listing for “The Living Ever Mourn” is as follows:

1. The Last Disease
2. I
3. I Am Decay
4. Empty Prayers
5. The Hollowing
6. Ii
7. Altars To Wrath
8. Funeral Dirge

Drunk Dad To Release New EP “Morbid Reality”

In a constant barrage of new noise from Portland-based D.I.Y. noisemongers Eolian Empire, the label’s next conquest comes by way of the filthifying new 12” from local metalworkers Drunk Dad. The following press release was issued about the band:

“If they weren’t such dirty fuckers they’d be one of the town’s shining success stories of unrelenting hard work and dedication: in a surprisingly short time Drunk Dad went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. Complex but in-your-face arrangements, push-pull duel-guitar interplay, searing behind-the-head leads, heavy motherfucking bass, and hard-hitting, tight, technical traps with dynamic, disturbing vocals to hold it all together evolves to ethical scumbaggery at its finest.

“Morbid Reality, the first vinyl release from Portlandian shitstarters Drunk Dad, merges off-kilter sludge/noise the Pacific Northwest perpetuates so well into a drugged-out but aggro vibe; elements of scathing crust-ish degenerate punk brutality of El Dopa or Dystopia are cold-filtered with slow-motion acerbic sludge basslines and noxious riffage with a post-Melvins experimental vibe.”

Eolian Empire will drop the four-song “Morbid Reality” on 12” vinyl and digital download this coming June 11th. The track listing is as follows:

1. Guts
2. Seizure
3. Ritual
4. Scum Fee


Catch the band live:

5/02/2013 The Shanty – Eureka, CA w/ Apocryphon, AM Beers
5/03/2013 Eli’s Mile High Club – Oakland, CA w/ Augers, Old Crow, Abstractor
5/04/2013 Hemlock Tavern – San Francisco, CA w/ Prizehog, Connoisseur
5/05/2013 Bay Area 51 – San Francisco, CA w/ Unifried, Mansion
6/07/2013 Ash Street Saloon – Portland, OR w/ Diesto
