Tarlung Streams “Beyond The Black Pyramid” Album

Austrian group Tarlung released new album “Beyond The Black Pyramid” on May 5th, 2017 via Black Bow Records. You can stream the full release below, or get your own copy at Bandcamp here. The following press release was also issued:

“Dense and suffocating, Tarlung’s music crawls along ponderously, squeezing the life out of its listeners. This kind of expression in sludge is rarely done but ends up being most satisfying.

“The riffs command the direction, as within the mire of the deafening sludge you have catchy hooks and memorable tunes. Influences from closely related genres such as death metal and even stoner doom coalesce to form their monolithic sound. Listen to one of the heaviest albums in this style and quiver under its might.”

1. It Waits In The Dark 01:50
2. Dying Of The Light 08:16
3. Mud Town 06:27
4. Kings And Graves 09:47
5. The Prime Of Your Existence 10:56
6. Resignation 04:02
7. Born Dead 09:13
8. Beyond The Black Pyramid 07:29
9. Karma 08:21

Jesters Of Destiny Posts Full New Album “The Sorrows That Refuse To Drown”

It was 30 years ago that Jesters of Destiny’s “Fun At The Funeral” debut was released on the short-lived Metal Blade subsidiary, Dimension Records. A year later, the band released all-covers record “In A Nostalgic Mood,” after which JoD was unceremoniously hacked from the Metal Blade stable and, unable to land another deal for third album, “No Laughing Matter,” quietly disappeared. with all the main participants going on to other pursuits.

All these years later, Jesters Of Destiny returns with “The Sorrows That Refuse To Drown,” an all-new record. You can stream the full release below. Bruce Duff also commented on the album to Pop Matters:

“It’s been 30 years since the release of the Jesters’ ‘Fun at the Funeral.’ This is our third record — we took 30 years off. Wasn’t like we were just sitting around though. We’ve been working on these songs for a while and we think it connects with the same stream of consciousness we previously mined without looking back to ’80s sounds. We think it’s pretty current. It also required a lot of current.”

Bolzer Streams Full “Hero” Album

Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present Bolzer’s “Hero” album. Officially out now, you can stream the full album below, and Iron Bonehead also comments:

“Hailing from Switzerland, Bolzer is one of the most unique entities the metal underground has birthed in years. For one, Bolzer is proudly and resolutely a duo, using the barest essentials of voice, guitar, and drums and yet creating one of the densest, most world-eating sounds around.

“For another, the duo wisely and patiently parceled out the recordings, with a lone nine songs to date across three records – 2012’s ‘Roman Acupuncture’ demo, 2013’s Iron Bonehead-released ‘Aura’ EP, and 2014’s ‘Soma’ EP – judiciously chronicling the band’s evolution into one of the most critically acclaimed metal bands in recent memory.

“And yet, ‘critical acclaim’ has never been a part of Bolzer’s agenda: the commitment is to art alone, but it just so happens that word-of-mouth built organically (and feverishly), especially on the strength of devastating, soul-draining live performances, where Bolzer can recreate every aspect of these records in the flesh.

“And at long last, flesh is given to a full-length album, and it bears the characteristically idiosyncratic title ‘Hero.'”
