SUMAC Premiere New Track “Attis’ Blade”

SUMAC premiere their new song “Attis’ Blade” from their upcoming new effort “Love In Shadow“. The group feature current and former memebrs of Isis, Baptists etc. and will release “Love In Shadow” on September 21st via Thrill Jockey.

Comments SUMAC frontman/guitarist Aaron Turner of this song and the new full length:

“While all ‘Love In Shadow was written before our recording session with [Keiji Haino,] that experience further bolstered our confidence to travel further into territories free of preconceived structure and melody. Immediacy, intuition, and risk have become an increasingly important aspect of our music making.

Before SUMAC was even a fully-formed band there was a goal I had in mind for how to approach writing songs: marrying fully realized structures to freely improvised movements – and trying to find fluid passages between these worlds. ‘Attis’ Blade‘ is a breakthrough for us in that it comes closer to meeting that goal than anything else we’ve written previously.

It’s a song I’m happy with in its own right, and more importantly as a key to the next step in our evolutional process. In this song I hear the three of us learning to trust one another more fully, and collectively embracing a more expansive dimension of our existence.

Lyrically the song has to do with succumbing to base desires, the subsequent self-abuse/admonishment to atone for these perceived transgressions of moral code, and also the personal histories that can lead to this kind of behavioral dysfunction.”

Shadow Woods Metal Fest Announces Date & Venue Changes

The 2018 edition of Shadow Woods Metal Fest (aka Shadow Woods IV) had hoped to debut this year’s fest in a new location in Virginia, but it was not to be. The festival will return to the original Maryland location, Camp Hidden Valley. Due to changes in dates and venue, changes to the festival line-up had to be made.

Shadow Woods IV will now be held Sept 13-15, 2018 at Camp Hidden Valley (located at 4722 Mellow Rd. White Hall, MD) so that the fest could be presented in the manner that attendees have come to expect. All previously issued tickets will be honored for the new dates. Refunds will be given upon request by emailing Shadow.Woods.LLC@gmail.com.

Here’s what’s new: UADA and Panzerfaust will no longer be able to play the fest; they will play the post-fest show on September 22 at The WindUp Space in Baltimore, along with Imperial Trimphant and two past fest favorites Night Raids and Dark Water Transit. Tombs will also not be able to play the fest and were not able to play a rescheduled event.

The remainder of the Shadow Woods IV lineup remains remarkably unchanged, and three new bands have been added. As in previous years, Camp Hidden Valley will feature three alternating stages, this time it will be Woodland, Pavilion and Hall.
