London
experimental metal 4-piece Asian Death Crustacean will be releasing their debut
album, Baikal, this summer. The forthcoming album combines their breadth
of influences in extreme metal, post-rock, electronic/ambient music and jazz.

The album

(Bloodbath, Leprous) and Jens Bogren (Opeth, Between The Buried And Me) of
Fascination Street Studio. You can listen to first track ‘Baikal Part II’

Today, Hanni El Khatib announces his new album Flight. Out May 15th via Innovative Leisure, the album is the artist’s fifth full-length and the most complete embodiment of who he is as an artist. It’s a record both dense and intricate yet direct and spontaneous. It is garage rock, it is hip-hop, it is soul, it is blues, it is psychedelic, but more than anything, Flight is a brilliant Hanni El Khatib record that taps into the adolescent spirit of creation that first stirred him to make songs in the first place. 

Hanni El Khatib is also sharing a new song and video. “ALIVE” is a levitative groove with a narcotic jazz piano riff built atop a bruised but euphoric vocal that states “I can’t believe I survived.” Speaking on the inspiration behind “ALIVE,” Hanni says: “Last April I was in a pretty serious car accident. Our vehicle was rear ended at high speed leaving the car crumpled up and flipped over. Miraculously we were all able to have come out relatively unscathed with only a few minor injuries. It was definitely a close call. Even the paramedics and police officers on site were in shock that we were all standing there given the severity of the crash. The whole experience gave me some some much needed perspective on life. I knew I wanted to touch on that somehow on this record. When the instrumental came together for the track it immediately felt like the perfect backdrop for this story.”

Bon Jovi have released a remarkable version of ‘Unbroken’ featuring the Invictus Games Choir in support of the Invictus Games Foundation.

Necronautical announce new album

UK black-metal outfit Necronautical have announced details of their latest offering, new album ‘Apotheosis’, set for release on 30th August through world-renowned extreme metal label Candlelight Records.

‘Nihil Sub Sole Novum’ is the first single to be shared from Apotheosis with the band adding,   “We feel that this song acts as a perfect microcosm for the direction of the album and of Necronautical itself: a relentless combination of punishing riffs and melancholic euphoria. The title translates as “nothing new under the sun”, directly challenging the conclusion of Ecclesiastes 1:9, and instead seeking to elevate the bleak and repetitive nature of life and humanity to the dais reserved for its gods. The song draws on the concepts of anamnesis and of a mythical pre-human golden age, and asks if such rediscovered knowledge can break the monotony of existence.”    

Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes release Kitty Sucker video

Shot by acclaimed filmmaker and visual artist Kate Cox and following on from the band’s work with Annie Mac’s International Women’s Day campaign,  Annie Lennox’ charity The Circle and Frank’s appearance on Crimewatch earlier this year to discuss safe spaces for women at live shows,  it is a brilliant and beautifully shot accompaniment to the track,  with an ending which might take you by surprise…

Kate expands on the collaboration;  “I was inspired by Frank’s commitment to create safe spaces for women at gigs. I always want to create female driven narratives so when I heard the track and had the idea of female vampires living in a seaside town, transforming men into more female vamps we both instantly knew it was right for Kitty Sucker!  It has been an absolute dream to work with such a talented creatively generous band.“

Jade Imagine release new single Big Old House

Emerging Melbourne three-piece jade imagine offer a seamless blend of synthwave & art-rock. After signing to Courtney Barnett’s Milk! Records for their debut EP in 2017 and supporting Julia Jacklin on tour last year, the band have recently signed to London-based record label Marathon Artists and are back with new single “Big Old House”, which will come out on both Marathon Artists & Milk! Records.

Speaking about the meaning behind “Big Old House”, jade imagine front-person Jade McInally said “This song came to me in a dream. I woke up and sang the melody into my phone. It’s about holding the mirror up to yourself. There is light in the dark. Letting yourself feel okay again. Rebirth. Getting back to basics. Musically, we channelled the inner Kraut to make the rock.”

McInally went on to say “The film clip is an extension of the themes within song; it’s about telling yourself in your darker moments to let the good things in, even if all you feel is negativity. James Thomson and the band directed it together, shooting  between the Coburg pool, velodrome, and a warehouse in Fairfield in New South Wales that we usually rehearse at. I was particularly inspired by the lighting in Dario Argento’s film Suspiria and the brainwashing content Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange.”

It’s been a hell of a month for hard electronic music. As we’ve seen
endless retrospectives on the 25th anniversary of NIN’s The Downward Spiral,
we’ve also had to sadly say goodbye to Keith Flint. It’s hard to overstate the
influence of The Prodigy on 90’s high school kids like me. I actually liked
dance music back then but spent a lot of effort trying to convince myself I
didn’t – “it all sounds like car alarms going off! Blah!” – because I was one
of the metal kids with a leather jacket. Dance was for the neddy kids, our
mortal enemies. It was Flint and The Prodigy who released music that both
tribes could enjoy and as a result made it feel ok for dumb teenagers like me
to start broadening our horizons without feeling idiotically guilty about it.
Rest in peace.

So, on with an industrial-heavy column. If you know where they nicked
their name from you’re probably going to like Kollaps, who have just released a
video for Fleshflower, a track from their upcoming second album Mechanical
Christ (out May 3rd from Cold Spring Records). A treat for fans of raw meat and
epileptic fits, for the rest of us it’s a sensory overload that fits perfectly
with the post-industrial sonic assault of Fleshflower. Kollaps have a
reputation for violent and anarchic live shows and their last release, Sibling
Lovers, was the kind of unapologetically harsh industrial noise that the world
needs more of, so roll on Mechanical Christ.

Speaking of intense live acts I feel compelled to mention Nightmare
Frequency. Possibly Scotland’s best kept industrial secret, they’ve been
putting on frenzied and impassioned shows for years and have recently been
playing with the likes of Sulpher, Psydoll and Gravelle. Their most recent
album, Incision and Drainage, is available now as a “pay what you like” release
on Bandcamp.

And speaking of videos the newly resurgent Test Dept managed to get
their latest, Landlord, banned from Youtube. Was it the anti-Tory message or
the graphic scenes of cutting? Either way, in the current political climate,
with Brexit and the rising shadow of the far-right, it’s great to see the
return of truly political industrial music project with some real depth and
integrity. Famed in the past for their intense and physically demanding
performances using scrap metal instruments and embracing the disintegration of
the UK’s industrial heritage during the 1980’s, they’re as caustic as ever
today, though we should all be utterly depressed that they still feel the need
to be. The video can be seen at Vimeo (definitely not safe for work due to the
aforementioned cutting) https://vimeo.com/312136982

Their new album Disturbance, their first release in two decades, is
available on Bandcamp: https://testdept.bandcamp.com/album/disturbance

Time for a change of pace as we look at David, the new album from
Aphotic Apathy. Not so much a concept album as an entire concept musical
project, Aphotic Apathy have spent the last four years producing albums of dark
ambient music inspired entirely by the Alien movies. With this release we’ve
reached the point between Prometheus and Alien: Covenant where the android
David wipes out the Engineers and begins his own experiments with creating
life. The album uses Michael Fassbender’s narration to good effect over echoing
interstellar soundscapes. It brings to mind the weirdness and sense of
discovery Ridley Scott seemed to be aiming for before public opinion started
pulling the films back to an “alien chases survivor girl” formula which the
series had already perfected out the gate.
