Regarding the new record, Sakis comments: “After almost two years on the road promoting and supporting our latest album ‘Rituals’, the time has come to create it’s follower. An album that will be inspired by the intense artistic worries which arose during those two years on the road, and which seems to be our darkest and most mystical influences yet in our career! Thanks for the support all those years, we will not disappoint you!”

Pallbearer Posts, “Dropout” Mini Documentary Online

Little Rock, Arkansas-based ruminant progressive doom quartet, Pallbearer, recently premiered a brand new track entitled “Dropout” as the 53rd instalment of the Adult Swim Singles Program. The song, which is available digitally today, represents a subtle expansion of the singular doom-prog metal sound the Arkansas outfit is known for.

To coincide with this release, the band have also made an accompanying mini doc available which gives a behind the scenes look at the recording of “Dropout” – recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, Arkansas. Check it out below.

Comments the band on the single: “We have almost always written music intended to exist as part of an album, with common musical and lyrical threads that tie many elements together into one release. Being freed from those confines in recording this song allowed us to explore themes and immediacy that might not have been uncovered in our more typical “large format” composition process.”

Outer Heaven Inks Deal With Relapse Records

Outer Heaven have signed with Relapse Records and will soon enter the studio to begin recording their new album. The tracking sessions will take place at Developing Nations Recording Studio in Baltimore, MD with Kevin Bernsten (Full Of Hell, Integrity) behind the boards with a late 2018 release scheduled.

Says the band of their new label home:

“We could not be more excited about becoming part of the beast that is Relapse Records. To be amongst so many bands that inspired us, as well as so many friends, is something truly killer. Our forthcoming LP promises to be the most devastating material we have conjured to date. We have sunken days, months, years, and LAVA into these songs and we think it will undoubtedly show.”

Vex Release Official Music Video for “Nowhere Near”

Texas progressive metallers VEX have released the official video for “Nowhere Near,” a track from The Machine Shop Sessions, the band’s new live-in-studio EP. Check out the video streaming below.

VEX guitarist Ciaran McCloskey had this to say about The Machine Shop Sessions:

“This recording acts as a sort of career retrospective, in which we chose one song from every album that we’ve historically had trouble pulling off live. We thought the availability of such a glorious studio would be a great opportunity to grind each song out until we had versions that we could live with. Each track was performed live in the studio with no editing or additional tracking, and plenty of warts to be found. The overall experience was excruciating but ultimately very encouraging.”

Track List:

1. Erosion
2. The Circular Ruins
3. No Such Thing
4. Nowhere Near
