Humorcore aficionados Psychostick have released a new song/video. Having previously covered the wonderful world of Bruce Campbell, the importance of beards, and the deliciosity of tacos, the band’s latest song is all about Mega Man. Have a big old nostalgia-gasm and pick out all the old comics, WWF action figures, and TMNT action figures. Hope you guys like Heart.

The band also has a trio of dates with Soil (yes, that Soil) left before the end of the year.

Dec 10 – Cudahy, WI (Milwaukee) – The Metal Grill
Dec 11 – Ringle, WI – Q & Z Expo Center
Dec 12 – Spring Lake Park, MN (Minneapolis) – POV’s 65

Nightmare-enducers Ehnahre are hard at work putting the finishing touches on their latest album Douve which is slated to come out in January via Kathexis Records. The band has also launched a shiny new website to keep up to date with all of their doings. One cool thing about the site is that they have a “Collaborate” section. Want to make some noise? Send ’em a message. Here’s the song “Black Gestures” off the upcoming album.


Cloak of Altering (Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues) will be releasing Manifestation via Crucial Blast Records on December 4th. It’ll be ambient, industrial, and all sorts of disturbing. Give a listen to “Parasitic Altering Sickness” from the upcoming album.


British occult doomers Witch Charmer have released a new song/video entitled “Mournful Dawn”. Recommended for fans of Occultation, Christian Mistress, and Jex Thoth.


The Body & Krieg have released a new song together called “Celebrate Your Shame”. Head on over to Decibel to avoid incessant shaming.

And finally, I know a  lot of you enjoy H.P. Lovecraft, so you may be excited to hear that Cadabra Records will be releasing a spoken word album on vinyl for two of his stories. The Hound & The Music Of Erich Zann will be read by Andrew Leman, who has done numerous audio performances of Lovecraft’s work, and will be released on February 5th, 2016.

    I was hoping that Ehnahre record would drop this year. Bummer.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Another band with fucking Witch in their name? That shit needs to be banned.

    • I feel “Bastard” is another one that gets used way too much any more too.

      • Vote for Jeb

        See also: goat, satanic, wolf…

        • Grave, death, plague, dark…

        • True, especially “Goat”. Although I tend to like a lot of bands that use “Goat” in their names. But yeah, way over used.

        • Based Potoo

          Satanic Witch Goat is the name of my new band.

          • You forgot “Bastard” after “Goat”.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Fixed! Thank you.

          • All Hail Mighty Tapir!

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            The Tapir will come, stab you and change all your money into Tapircoins!

        • My new band Goat Dong will put out our demo on NWN! any day now.

        • Hubert

          Wolfs, satan’s and goats are quite rad though

        • School Of Hard Plops

          And ‘As’ at the beginning of band names.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Bastard Witch.

        • I’m pretty sure there is a band named “Witch Bastard”

    • CyberneticOrganism

      BRB, gonna start a band called “Witch Witch”

    Oh no. The grief.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Hahaha, yeah no shit.

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      He ALONE has more talent than most musician’s …the only other person I can think of that is multi-talented like him is Kid Rock, now…I have spoken my peace. 🙂

      -Tim Marx, 3 months ago

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Kid Rock is this generation’s John Lennon

        • School Of Hard Plops

          Well, they’re both wife beaters, so they have that in common.

    • i’m going to cry

      • Vote for Jeb

        Jimmy plz! I heard Good Charlotte was looking for a drummer.

        • Are face and neck tattoos required?

          • Vote for Jeb

            Just the neck.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            And the dick…..

    • School Of Hard Plops

      Khakis have been lowered to half mast to mourn the event.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    Stoned Meadow Of Doom is a great place to find new Doom/Stoner stuff.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Both of the accounts are full of great stuff, but a lot of it is terrible too.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        As with any source of music, you have to wade through a lot of crap to find the good stuff.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    Witch Charmer isn’t doing it for me.

    • I was thinking of you when I posted them. Maybe you’ll like this one better?
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cf_MY04Cyx0

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Listening…

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Far better track.
        Better than say, Lucifer or Ruby The Hatchet, but far from Blood Ceremony/Occultation/Purson grade.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Weird. I thought you liked anything with the word “witch” in it.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        HORSE RHINO THING!!!!!!

      • Hubert

        I liked you less when you were a bird

        • this guy was p funny too:

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The Tapir is his Ultimate Form.

          • Lacertilian

            Death cracked me up sometimes.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          I liked you less when you were a goat.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Oh Tapir, why art thou so Tapir, again?

        • Vote for Jeb

          Because I revealed that the Tapir was his most highly ranked incarnation on my list.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            And even as the most highly ranked incarnation of me it’s still on the bottom of that list.

          • Vote for Jeb

            You’re wrong. You occasionally have good opinions, and you rarely spam anymore.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            One day you might achieve the ultimate form: A naked chicken in a sink with a beer and a remote. But, hey, my eyes and potoo’s eyes matched!

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            BEER IS FOR FUN PEOPLE AND I AIN’T FUN

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Gah, damnit! What is that Finnish band you sent me before? I have the stuff saved to my old laptop. Got a new one, if you can send it again.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            But, I dug the Potatoo. 🙁

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            No you didn’t

          • Vault Dweller

            Think about it: Tapir lives in a frigid, frosty hellscape that’s just beginning to settle in to the longest and least comfortable season of the year.

            He’s fantasizing about being warm, and who is warmer in December than a South American Jungle Rat?

          • fallout 4 comes out tomorrow

          • Vault Dweller

            What’s that, a new Vault-Tec program? I hadn’t heard!

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Except that I love winter and hate heat.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Why not a combination of both?

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Don’t ask questions

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      THIS IS THE BEST ALBBUM EVER!!!!!!

      They are my heros and i think this album shows how freaking good they are!!!

      hehe

    God damn that Newsies picture.

    • More people should appreciate the majesty that is Christian Bale’s terrible attempt at a New York accent.

      • I some how managed to avoid this movie my entire life.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Me too.

        • School Of Hard Plops

          I did for quite some time. I’m still the only person on Earth who hasn’t seen The Avengers.

          • more beer

            Me either.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        And being Batman.

        • This isnt a cAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKBhqfs33gk

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Hahahaha. That movie sucked.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Bane ruined it for me (almost as much as the Bane from Batman Forever). He constantly sounded like a super super gay guy trying to come on through a tracheotomy.

            This Bane is the only true one!:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enOHraf3LEk

        • School Of Hard Plops

          You’re more a fan of the Clooney version of Batman I take it? You’ll love Ben Affleck’s upcoming role as Batman then!

  • I feel bad for Castle having to play at the Wisco. It basically resembles every dive bar one finds in unincorporated farm towns in the upper midwest. There’s gonna be like twenty people there and only ten paying any attention to the band.

    • CT-12

      Saw Castle 2 months ago, helluva show! Drummer goes hard as shit; all around, just a super powerful sound.

  • God ov War

    Maybe Svensson tried to say that he was tired of doing the crappy music of the last In Flames records

    • Vote for Jeb

      Ha, I made almost this same joke on Facebook.

    • I don’t know…he clearly said he wanted to spend more time with his family. I didn’t see any hint of concession to Real Mertuhl Dorks in his statement at all…or the fact that he didn’t leave much sooner if that was indeed the case.

      Besides: “old melodeath In Flames” is about as grating as it gets.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        OTH, Jesper was “forced to quit” despite obviously being unhappy with In Flames’ direction. I don’t think he still would have quit by himself.

        On that note, I don’t think Svensson quit because he didn’t like their music.

        • School Of Hard Plops

          He sat at the computer one morning, looked at the new promo photos of him and the band dressed up like Old Navy cashiers or Mr. Rogers, and said “Dear God, what have I done with my life?!?!”.

      • School Of Hard Plops

        IIRC, he’s co-owner of a pretty upscale restaurant as well. Probably something that would give him a solid income plus a lot more time with his family.

  • Count_Breznak

    Brewery……well, there’s hope his brews aren’t as generic and watered down.

    • This was the first joke that popped in my head upon reading the news, more or less.

  • Eliza

    When there are festival and tour dates announced but you know you won’t be able to go to any of them

    • do many swing by your neck o’ the woods?

    • School Of Hard Plops

      Don’t feel bad. Nearest one to me is Castle in Richmond, which is over 100+ miles away, and I have no car.

      • Eliza

        That somehow feels a lot worse than being thousands of kilometers way from the nearest event. Something like: so close, yet so far.

  • Mon*Star

    I likes me some Castle. Speed that Witch Charmer up several times and you get the idea.

  • Old Man Doom

    Stoked for the Cadabra Lovecraft release. “The Music of Erich Zann” is one of my favorites.
