Norway's Barren Womb Stream Entire New Album “Lizard Lounge” Via Decibel Magazine

Nordic noise rock duo Barren Womb are now streaming their entire new full-length album ‘Lizard Lounge’, just one day ahead of its release tomorrow, March 22nd through Loyal Blood Records.

‘Lizard Lounge’ is now playing in full at Decibel Magazine, who commented “Lizard Lounge is being touted by the folks at Loyal Blood Records as “Quicksand meets Clutch meets Refused.” This is a decent start, but we’d implore you to not omit/forget about Melvins, Cows, Fugazi, Big Business, Rocket from the Crypt, Botch, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Torche and any number of bands from the AmRep and Gravity Records catalogues.”

Listen to ‘Lizard Lounge’ here.

“Trim the fat.” Said the band about the new album. “That was the unspoken mindset when we started writing Lizard Lounge. The resulting ten tracks are stripped of all pomp and frills, tightly focused instead around the essence of what this band is: pummelling drums, scathing guitars, deadly rhythms and strangely catchy melodies. We really left no cross unturned when digging around for these slabs of noisy weirdo rock. The title itself, part shadow government and part Hunter S. Thompson acid paranoia, reflects upon the waiting room all of us reptilian brained meat bags call home. Apathy, cancer, conspiracies, death, depression, destruction, diabetes, incels, rednecks and a sprinkling of meth – this album truly has it all.”

Norwegian Power Punk Rock Duo Hot Nuns Reveal New Song “Can’t Get Over You” Via Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Norwegian power punk rock duo Hot Nuns, featuring members of Blood Command, has recently shared another track off their forthcoming EP “Rude, Dumb & Anxious”, which is set for release this Friday, May 15th via Loyal Blood Records.

Titled “Can’t Get Over You”, this new track is now playing at Heavy Blog Is Heavy, who commented "Rude, Dumb & Anxious, is power punk goodness, full of blazing riffs, vocal harmonies, and just a whole load of fun.”

Listen to "Can't Get Over You" here.

Recorded at SpaceKraft, mixed and mastered by Simon Jackman and with artwork done by Robert Høyem, “Rude, Dumb & Anxious” features four new tracks including a cover of The Boys’ “First Time”.

The duo comments on the album. “The record is four tracks of stripped down punk rock. Its only drums, bass and our vocals. We have a rule that if we can’t play it live we can’t put in on record either. So there is no cheating here. Not trying to be pretentious, but we try to make music the same way Lars Von Trier made Dogville. No fancy extra layers needed to get the story across. The lyrics are mostly about sad losers longing for love except the title track «Rude, Dumb & Anxious» who is about people who will say whatever about stuff they don’t know just to fit in and look good.”

Feared Share Video For “Your Black Is My White”

Swedish death-metallers Feared, featuring current and former members of The Haunted, Dååth, Suffocation and Clawfinger, have just shared an animated music video for “Your Black Is My White” off the band’s forthcoming sixth album “Svart”.

Watch the music video featuring drawings by Johan Ejerblom (ArtByEjerBlom) and directed by Hugo Andersson below.

Guitarist Ola Englund had this to say about the video: “The video for Your Black is My White is about Frida, a married woman who suffered a tragedy of losing her daughter in a drowning accident. Now she struggles through life living in two worlds, reality and nightmare. The accident is tearing apart on her relationship. In the video the worlds shifts and in the end reality is the nightmare and her everyday perfect life is her dream. Video producer Johan Ejerblom really did a great job capturing the Feared-vibe.” 

Mixed by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, Whitechapel, etc…) and featuring the artwork of Sylvain Lucchina, the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed fifth album “Synder” will be released worldwide on December 8th, 2017. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
