“Django” starts out with a pounding drum beat from singer-drummer Stefanie Mannaerts, who then delivers a powerful roar over a robust riff from guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden, making for an anthemic track from beginning to end.

Chelsea Wolfe and Chino Moreno on New Saudade Track, "Shadows & Light" // Revolver 



Via Revolver

Saudade is a diverse supergroup featuring Deftones singer Chino Moreno, his bandmate in side project Crosses Chuck Doom, famed keyboardist John Medeski, and Bad Brains guitarist Dr. Know. Adding more creative juice to their already-stacked lineup, the collective has now collaborated on a track with goth siren and current Revolver cover star Chelsea Wolfe titled “Shadows & Light,” and the outcome is an opulent, melancholic slow burner that flexes the softer side of Wolfe and Moreno’s expansive ranges.

Deafheaven Share Heavy New Track, “Black Brick” // Pitchfork 


Full feature via Pitchfork

Deafheaven have just released a new song. It’s called “Black Brick,” and it’s a B-side from their 2018 album Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. Listen below.

Deafheaven are set to tour North America with Baroness next month. This past December, frontman George Clarke spoke to Pitchfork shortly after the Grammy nominations were announced. (The band was nominated for Best Metal Performance.) “It’s very cool. It’s surreal to have a band like ours making the music that we make be recognized on that kind of a level,” he said. “We appreciate it a lot.”

Mutoid Man, Mastodon & Kvelertak at Casino de Paris Live Review // The Heavy Chronicles 

Full article + photos via The Heavy Chronicles

MUTOID MAN are the goofy kind of band, the one who makes appearances on the Two Minutes to Late Night web show, performing Tom Jones covers in the subway or any other song while being dressed weirdly. Anyway, NYC’s shredding punks prove to have some strong, anthemic songwriting skills on top of their highly infectious rowdiness. We can’t help grinning when hearing the interwoven lyrics of “Kiss of Death” while headbanging all along — the trio’s records hold a decent amount of catchy treasures like this one.  With such seasoned musicians, Mutoid Man kick our asses and crush all eardrums with a high-octane performance that gets everyone in the mood for the night. On drums, Chris Maggio is filling in nicely for Ben Koller (to whom we’re wishing a swift recovery).
