Lingua Ignota Shares ‘Butcher of the World’ + Announces New LP // The Quietus 

via The Quietus

LINGUA IGNOTA has announced a new album, CALIGULA, to be released by Profound Lore on July 19. You can listen to the lead track 'BUTCHER OF THE WORLD' hereCALIGULA can be pre-ordered here.

Kristin Hayter follows up two self-released albums from 2017 (Let The Evil Of His Own Lips Cover Him and All Bitches Die) with another foray into her own sound composed from noise, black metal, modern composition and opera (although with less of an industrial influence than early work). It's a dizzying and pulverising assault that bears some of the same hallmarks as such tQ favourites as Gnaw Their Tongues and The Body.

The album features more live instrumentation from a band of collaborators that includes Sam McKinlay (THE RITA), drummer Lee Buford (The Body) and percussionist Ted Byrnes (Cackle Car, Wood & Metal), with guest vocals from Dylan Walker (Full of Hell), Mike Berdan (Uniform), and Noraa Kaplan (Visibilities).

CALIGULA can be pre-ordered here

Earth Premiere "The Mandrake's Hymn" & Interview // 



Earth’s trajectory is not so much of an orbit as it is a deviation. For the past three decades, the only constant for the band headed by Dylan Carlson has been change – which is ironic for a group whose music relies heavily upon repetition.

Earth started out with ground-shaking seismic drone metal on 1993’s Earth 2, then took a left turn in 2005 into the arid West with the Morricone-inspired Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method. Almost a decade later, they ventured into meditative rock with Primitive And Deadly.

Now, the band have purged themselves of any embellishments, stripping instrumentation down to Carlson on guitar and bass and Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion. The upcoming record, Full Upon Her Burning Lips, is a lesson in austerity, and spotlights the duo’s sonic symbiosis.

Ahead of the release, we speak with Carlson about the record, his fascination with Telecaster pickups and his favourite collaborations thus far.

Brutus Live Review // Noizze 

review via

For the past several years Brutus (9) have been regarded as many as one of the brightest hidden gems of the European prog and post rock scene. A frustratingly backhanded accolade indeed, but judging from this set and the response that their sophomore record Nest recently received, it’s clear Brutus are on the cusp of trading this title for a far more prestigious one. Whilst Brutus have frequently been exalted for their transfixing live shows this set demonstrates that it’s only time before Brutus are hailed as the leaders of the European scene. 

Opening with a droning yet ethereal interlude that leads into the monolithic progression of ‘Fire’ and the barbed shoegaze of ‘Cemetery’, one can not help but ask themselves that in what justice could Brutus ever have been classified as a hidden gem. On the back of these two tracks, it’s instantly evident that is set is going to be an utter masterclass of contemporary progression, with front-woman Stefanie Mannaerts’ possessive and transfixing vocals beautifully interweaving with her effortless and dynamically fluid percussion duties.
