New EP “Eyes On The Prize” Streaming In Full From Jupiter Zeus

Australia’s Jupiter Zeus is streaming the entire new EP “Eyes On The Prize” via the band’s Bandcamp page, which you can access via the player below.

Tucked away in Perth, Western Australia, Jupiter Zeus are the very definition of a band who seem to have come from nowhere… but its arrival – laden with walls of guitar, hypnotic rhythms and almost psychedelic vocals – is far from quiet.

From the stage or simply blasting in your car; the sound of Jupiter Zeus is as monolithic and grand as its namesakes.

New Song “Mutilation Mansion” Available From Acid Witch

Today, the ever-singular Acid Witch revealed the new song “Mutilation Mansion.” The song hails from the band’s third album “Evil Sound Screamers,” which will see digital release on Halloween via Hells Headbangers; the CD and vinyl LP formats shall be released by Hells Headbangers in the new year. Check out “Mutilation Mansion” in the player at the bottom.

Although their catalog is relatively sparse, Acid Witch should need no introduction. It’s been seven long years since the release of their classic second album “Stoned.” That album saw Acid Witch take the bewitching formula of the “Witchtanic Hallucinations” debut to greater, more entrancing lengths, swirling about a heady (and headfucking) brew of gutted doom-death riffage and spooky synth embellishments.

Now on “Evil Sound Screamers,” those synths don’t so much take a lead role as unite every thread across the record, flitting in and out of perception like a fever dream (or an LSD nightmare) and otherwise torquing all the gutsfucking riffs that now stomp ‘n’ sway with a rousingly anthemic quality. They are authentically analog synthesizers, too, just like the beloved sound design of those classic horror movies. Additionally, the acute placement of samples further threads everything together in a manner most filmic. And that’s to say nothing of the production here, which finds a hazy, crazy balance between murky and 3D.

Before you know it, the 38 minutes of “Evil Sound Screamers” is up and you’re immediately pressing “play” again and again. Now more than ever, there’s really no other band out there quite like Acid Witch: Evil Sound Screamers is the band’s magnum opus, and long may its reign continue. This is the season of the Witch!

The track listing is:

1. Scare Tape
2. Mr. Beistle
3. I Hate Halloween
4. Cheap Gore
5. Nain Rouge (The Red Dwarf)
6. Enter At Your Own Risk
7. Mutilation Mansion
8. Hardrock Halloween
9. Nightmares In A Damaged Brain
10. An Evil Sound Screaming
