THE PRIMALS: Video For “Hello Cruel World” Video Premiered At Louder Than War; West Coast Tour Dates With Cave In And Helms Alee Announced

Los Angeles-based rock trio THE PRIMALS – founded by vocalist/guitarist John Henry (also of Darkest Hour), bassist Chad Fjerstad (formerly of Dead To Fall), and drummer Andrew Black (formerly of The Explosion) – has shared a new video for the track “Hello Cruel World,” through a premiere at Louder Than War. The new video hits as the band announces November tour dates with Cave In and Helms Alee.
“Hello Cruel World” is found on THE PRIMALS‘ debut album All Love Is True Love, out now on Southern Lord. Featuring ten infectious tracks produced by John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes) and completed with cover art by Laura K. Giron, the band’s fuzzy execution is equal slabs ripping guitar heaviness and infectious pop sensibility on All Love Is True Love. Concocted by a seasoned group of thrashers with a historical backbone in the D.C. punk community, the disintegrated spirit of grunge rises from the ashes, revitalized in a new light.
The footage from THE PRIMALS‘ “Hello Cruel World” video was gathered during the band’s debut visit to Europe earlier this year.
See THE PRIMALS’ official video for “Hello Cruel World” at Louder Than War RIGHT HERE.
Stream All Love Is True Love HERE and see the prior video for “Fortune & Sons” HERE.
All Love Is True Love is out now through Southern Lord on CD, LP, and digital platforms, available at the US label webshop HERE, the European webshop HERE, and at Bandcamp HERE.
THE PRIMALS will join Helms Alee supporting Cave In on a West Coast US tour this fall. The tour begins in Houston on November 8th and runs through Dallas, Austin, Mesa, San Diego, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle through November 19th. Watch for additional tour dates to be announced.

NIGHTFELL To Release A Sanity Deranged Through 20 Buck Spin In September; “The Swallowing Of Flies” Single Now Streaming

20 Buck Spin presents A Sanity Deranged, the monolithic third album from Portland, Oregon’s NIGHTFELL. Offering the first new material since 2015’s highly regarded Darkness Evermore LP, A Sanity Deranged delivers the band’s most crucial and damaging music to date. Alongside the cover art and track listing, the advance lead single “The Swallowing Of Flies” has been posted for streaming.
NIGHTFELL is the creation of Todd Burdette (Tragedy, His Hero Is Gone, Warcry) and Tim Call (Mournful Congregation, Sempiternal Dusk, Weregoat). Returning like a phantom four years after Darkness Evermore enveloped the planet, the all-consuming thunderstorm that is NIGHTFELL‘s A Sanity Deranged is loosed upon a world in fractured turmoil. A dark metal dirge of madness, an anthem to those immemorial and a sonic bloodletting of vitriol and contempt, A Sanity Deranged is NIGHTFELLat its most spitefully deliberate.
A Sanity Deranged is a pinnacle to this point of the disparate sounds that shape the cohesive discordance of NIGHTFELL. Slicing ice cold texture cuts like obsidian glass amidst the monumental death crush and grim wallow of doomed dejection. The heart has remained as defiant and vigilant as ever, but the old flesh has been shed and a beast reborn rears forth – jaws dripping, teeth gnashing, shedding the withered exoskeleton for an adherent body.
Recorded and mixed together with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (High On Fire, Asunder, Vastum, Ulthar) with additional instrumentation and vocals tracked by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Melvins), the NIGHTFELL duo evokes their most dense and dynamic recording yet.  A sharpened blade of iron and steel forged in the fires of tumult, A Sanity Deranged is the annihilating vanguard for the end times now upon us all.
Hear the advance lead single from A Sanity Deranged, “The Swallowing Of Flies,” through YouTube HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
NIGHTFELL‘s A Sanity Deranged will see release on LP, CD, and digital formats through 20 Buck Spin on Friday, September 13th, including a special limited gold/brown galaxy color vinyl configuration available to record stores. Fans of Bolt Thrower, Misthyrming, Mayhem, Amebix, Tragedy, Primordial, and Neurosis should be on watch for A Sanity Deranged.
In the studio, all NIGHTFELL music is written and performed by Todd Burdette and Tim Call, while the live lineup is comprised of Burdette on guitar and vocals and Call on drums, with guitarist Vince Blank and bassist Derek Willman. Stand by for NIGHTFELL live appearances to be scheduled throughout 2019 and 2020.

A Sanity Deranged Track Listing:

1. No Life Leaves Here
2. (As Now) We Must Succumb
3. To The Flame
4. The Swallowing Of Flies
5. (Holiness Digested)
6. Sanity Deranged

DEAD TO A DYING WORLD: Dark Metal Septet Begins East Coast Tour This Week; Elegy LP Out Now Through Profound Lore

Texas-based dark metal septet
 DEAD TO A DYING WORLD this week embarks on their East Coast tour, continuing to tour in support of their acclaimed Elegy opus, which saw release through Profound Lore Records in April.
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD‘s Elegy is a foretelling of a post-human world which explores themes of loss, grief, and the dawn of a new ecology through the eyes of a lone wanderer. The last human grieves the end of humanity, reflecting on the temporal insignificance of man and the sixth extinction caused by the Anthropocene – the end of our kind brought about by our own hubris, greed, and desire for power over one another. Elegy marks the third chapter in the trilogy, which explores our relationship to our world by reflecting on our past, present, and impending future.
Produced by Billy Anderson, Elegy stands as one of the most riveting productions from the acclaimed producer in recent times. The album sees the band’s seven full-time members welcoming contributions from a small cast of guest musicians, including Thor Harris (ex-Swans, Thor & Friends), Jarboe (ex-Swans), Dylan Desmond (Bell Witch), and Emil Rapstine (The Angelus), Pablo C. Urusson (Sangre de Muerdago), and Tim Duffield (ex-Sans Soleil). The new contingent of guests helps elevate the narrative of Elegy to a new plateau.
DEAD TO A DYING WORLD‘s new tour will begin in Chicago this Saturday, July 20th followed by shows in Pittsburgh, Richmond, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Washington, Asheville, and New Orleans through July 27th. In addition to the band’s already sprawling lineup, DEAD TO A DYING WORLD will be joined by guest musicians Emil Rapstine from The Angelus on vocals (who also toured with them on the recent West Coast run), and Zach Jobin from Cleric and Tyrannosorceress on percussion.
Elegy available through Profound Lore Records on 2xLP, CD, and digital platforms via the label webshop HERE via Bandcamp HERE. Also see the video for “Syzygy” at THIS LOCATION.
