Sourvein Releases “Avian Dawn” Music Video

Doom/sludge outfit Sourvein will release Metal Blade Records debut, “Aquatic Occult,” on April 8th worldwide. Featuring guest performances by Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe (vocals, organ), Amebix’s Stig Miller (guitar), Corrosion of Conformity’s Reed Mullin (drums) and many others, the album is described by front-man T-Roy as the record he wanted to make at a time when his life was at its bleakest.

With only one week until “Aquatic Occult” drops, Sourvein has revealed a brand new music video for the track “Avian Dawn,” directed by Randy Ada.

T-Roy details the guest appearances on this track: “The ‘Avian Dawn’ video is directed/edited by Randy Ada and features live footage of us recording at SSP Studios in Raleigh, NC. You’ll see Mike Dean of C.O.C. on the production board, Reed Mullin of C.O.C. on drums, Kevin Rochelle of Sea of Tyrants on guitar, Lou Gorra on bass and myself recording riffs and vocals. This video truly gives a behind the scenes look at the album’s core performers hard at work. Music wise, ‘Avian Dawn’ is an upbeat song about positive thinking with an overall loose theme surrounding the sea birds of Pleasure Island, relayed as abstract wordplay in the lyrics throughout the song. We really dig this tune and it’s a lot of fun to play. Enjoy.”

Sludge metal masters Sourvein premiere commanding new track, “Aquanaut”, via MetalSucks.com

Last month, it was announced that decade-spanning doom/sludge metal vets Sourvein would be back with their long-awaited Metal Blade Records debut, Aquatic Occult. Featuring guest performances by Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe (vocals, organ), Amebix‘s Stig Miller (guitar), Corrosion of Conformity‘s Reed Mullin (drums) and many others, the album is described by frontman T-Roy as the record he wanted to make at a time when his life was at its bleakest.

Scheduled to hit stores on April 8, 2016, Aquatic Occult isn’t just an album about trudging through the depths of a dangerous, mythological underwater world inspired by T-Roy’s home surroundings of Cape Fear, NC – it’s an unforgiving sonic pummeling that has followed years of pain prevailed. A powerful Aquatic Occult cut that truly encompasses both theme and inspiration, “Aquanaut“, is available for streaming now via MetalSucks.net. Listen here: metalsucks.net

Aquanaut” also features some friends of T-Roy’s – performing lead guitar on the track is Dean Berry, formerly of English sludge metal vets Iron Monkey. In addition, Chris Holcombe and Joel Martin of sludge metal outfit Subrig Destroyer provide drums and additional rhythm guitar, respectively. They join Sourvein mainstays Kevin Rochelle (Sea of Tyrants) on guitar, Lou Gorra on bass, and of course, T-Roy on vocals.

“‘Aquanaut’ is a fun tune, it was a main riff I had for awhile; it turned out cool on tape,” states frontman T-Roy. “It’s about being underwater, descending to the depths, looking for a sunken ship and finding your way back. I had Dean Berry from Iron Monkey do the lead guitar – he killed it, as did the other guests on this track – the Subrig Destroyer guys Chris and Joel from Athens, GA. Hope everyone digs the track!”

Aquatic Occult is produced by Mike Dean and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Yob). Pre-orders for Aquatic Occult are available now in CD, vinyl, and digital formats via metalblade.com/sourvein

Randy Blythe Appears On The Jasta Show, Full Episode Streaming

In today’s episode of The Jasta Show, Jamey Jasta sits down with Randy Blythe from Lamb of God. They discuss the Gwar B-Q, Dave Brockie, Jello Biafra, staying sober, prison, Randy’s love of literature, Randy’s pcoming book, the wall of Death at Ozzfest, and more.

Randy comments on sobriety and getting sober on tour: “I was writing about drinking in my book, I address it quite a bit. It stopped working the last night I got drunk. It worked when I got to a place where everything that bothered me was shutdown. I drink because I didn’t like many things about myself and many things about the world. I didn’t want to cope with that.”

Randy on what he learned from the events in the Czech Republic, and if there was a life lesson: “No there was no fucking lesson just tragedy. A dead fucking kid. Though I caught a bullet. It was bound to happen to someone. The barricade at that show was non-existent. The security is non-existent. If I were to do it again I would have stopped the show.”
