Northlane premieres a new song and music video entitled “Citizen”. A new album from the band is tentatively scheduled for a May/June release date with more details to come.

Check out now “Citizen” below.

Says guitarist Josh Smith of the song:

“‘Citizen’ is a song that was written about the First World police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer. Writing this one was quite a mission, we went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.”

Ovid’s Withering Re-Issuing “Scryers Of The Ibis” Album

Unique Leader Records is pleased to unleash the reissue of “Scryers Of The Ibis” this March, the debut full-length from Florida-based theatrical blackened tech metallers and recent label signees, Ovid’s Witheering.

Recorded by Ovid’s Withering with additional mixing and mastering by Aaron Smith (7 Horns 7 Eyes, Jeff Loomis) and stunning cover design by Julius Stiawan, “Scryers Of The Ibis” was originally self-released in 2013 and reaped critical accolades from underground media outlets globally for its eerily enticing blend of diabolic discord.

Metal Injection christened the twelve-track offering, “one of the best, most well-written, well-played, well-produced, killer records of 2013,” “a masterpiece,” and, “a testament to creativity and the willingness to go above and beyond what your contemporaries are doing.”

Unique Leader Records will reissue the epic “Scryers Of The Ibis” on March 10th, 2015 digitally, on CD, and double LP (tan and white wax).

Wild Hunt To Release New Full-Length Album "Before The Plane Of Angles"

Wild Hunt’s debut full-length album, “Before the Plane of Angles,” is set for a May 1st release on Kemado Records. The following press release was issued about the album:

“From Oakland, California, Wild Hunt’s epic, progressive sound draws influence from black metal, traditional heavy metal, ambient music, and beyond. From triumph to melancholia, Wild Hunt’s long, winding songs twist and turn but always push forward.

“Majestic dual-guitar lines race atop forward-charging rhythms, led by the soaring harmonies and blackened screams of singing drummer Harland Burkhart. The band’s intense, mystical vibe honors past musical forms while forging ahead in a progressive-minded way. Drummer of Agalloch and Worm Ouroboros, Aesop Dekker, has publicly hailed Wild Hunt, praising the band’s ‘craft, musicianship, and songwriting.’

“Much as the music evokes the sense of a journey, the lyrics center around altered states of perception and man’s ongoing quest toward enlightenment. Before the Plane of Angles is a conceptual record, intended to be experienced in one sitting. With ambient passages linking one song to the next, it plays as one continuous piece of music – an ode to the album format.

“Before the Plane of Angles was recorded and mixed by Laudanum/ex-Asunder bassist Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios (Saviours, Ghoul). The ambient sections were recorded and mixed by the band – including field recordings captured on location in places like Tennessee Valley Park in Marin County. The album was mastered by Justin Weis at Trakworx (Hammers of Misfortune, Ludicra).

“A remarkable debut album from this Oakland band – more a trip than a collection of songs – Before the Plane of Angles reflects its creators’ respect for music of the past and their willingness to push fearlessly into the future.”
