DEEPER GRAVES: No Clean Singing Streams Entire The Colossal Sleep LP; Second Album From Chrome... 

No Clean Singing is exclusively streaming The Colossal Sleep, the second full-length release from post-punk/post-metal outfit DEEPER GRAVES – the solo venture of Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, Contrition, ex-Nachtmystium, ex-Wolvhammer) – ahead of its release this Friday through Disorder Recordings.

DEEPER GRAVES delivers lush soundscapes and slow-paced rock movements that venture further into the realms of post-punk, shoegaze, and alternative, with elements tracing to foundational acts Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy, Christian Death, and the like. The Colossal Sleep delivers six new songs which further develop and expand upon the melodic and melancholic foundations built on DEEPER GRAVESOpen Roads debut, with Wilson handling vocals, guitars, bass, synth/keys, programming, and all other instrumentation. Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Wilson at the Disorder Recordings headquarters, the record is completed with cover art by Awo Prosatega and layout by Wilson, and features guest vocals from Heath Rave (Lotus Thrones, ex-Wolvhammer) on the tracks “Escape Velocity” and “Corridors.”

Wilson delves, “I’ve been in bands with people who write and rewrite over and over again and I’ve been in bands with people who don’t write at all. Most of these people are the same, they want all the credit for their prospective band’s best albums. With The Colossal Sleep, I looked at it the same that I’ve done with everything I’ve ever been involved with. I’m not interested in an album being better than the last one. I’m not interested in making the best album I’ve ever done. I’m not even interested in getting credit for it as I never wanted to be a solo artist in the first place. I’m just interested in making good albums that complement the rest of my sparsely listened catalog, even when that’s mostly for myself. Hopefully, this one stands with the others.”

Writes No Clean Singing within their intense review joining the advance stream, “The album’s ebb and flow persists as the closing track glimmers, booms, and grumbles. It sets its own mid-paced rhythmic hook that way, and then the keyboards lift it like a hawk riding a thermal toward the clouds. Wilson wails the lyrics in a somber and sorrowing timbre; the music provides a vista of wonder to be yearned for, but the vocals seem to tell us that it’s out of reach. The slowly meandering solo is soulful, but freighted with grief. The guitar scratches at the skin, and leaves blood. Near the end, a piano creates a repeating refrain that seeps across the flesh like a balm, but only leaves us more shadowed by sorrow.”

Listen to DEEPER GRAVES’ entire The Colossal Sleep album early only through No Clean Singing now at THIS LOCATION.

The Colossal Sleep will see release on CD and digital platforms through Wilson’s label Disorder Recordings this Friday, January 28th. Find preorders and merch HERE, and watch the video for the album’s “Distant Fires” HERE.

GWAR To Release “The New Dark Ages” June 3rd on CD and Digital / September 16th on Vinyl and... 

GWAR To Release “The New Dark Ages” June 3rd on CD and Digital / September 16th on Vinyl and Cassette

Partners With Z2 Comics For Graphic Novel “GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity”

GWAR is set to release their ambitious new album “The New Dark Ages” June 3rd on CD and Digital, and on September 16th on Vinyl and Cassette via GWAR’s own label Pit Records. Pre-orders are available at: HERE 
The album concept is tied to a companion graphic novel, “GWAR In the Duoverse of Absurdity,” which will be released by Z2 Comics on June 3rd. In the graphic novel the band are sucked off into an alternate universe to do battle with their evil twins and the specter of rogue technology. On “The New Dark Ages” our heroes floorboard it through a kaleidoscope of hard driving heavy metal, and rock-n-fucking roll, building on their hilarious mythos, introducing cool new characters, and cataloging mankind’s hapless abandonment of their passions, rituals, and beliefs.
The Berserker Blóthar says: “This is the greatest rock record of all time. These are the songs for a new age, a New Dark Age, when men live by the dimming light of a technology destined to betray them. Listen, as we have a rock and roll orgy in the ruins of the world to celebrate humanity’s descent into an age of darkness, disease, ignorance, and death.”
“The New Dark Ages” is available for pre-order on cassette, CD, and multiple different colors of vinyl (whiskey, sunbolt and black/gold marble) and the graphic novel as both soft and hard cover. Bundles are available including ones with Blóthar bobbleheads, and a one of a kind Beefcake helmet. See them all at HERE.

You've read the album, now hear the book!
"GWAR in the Duoverse of Absurdity" chronicles the epic battle between GWAR and their doppelgangers from an alternate universe the band discovers behind their treasured Magic Mirror. The book uses an innovative storytelling technique that combines words and pictures printed on paper (made from real trees!) in a seamless format we are calling a "graphic novel.” The tale is illustrated by the masterful talents of Andy MacDonald (Wolverine, Dr Strange, Wonder Woman), Shane White (Things Undone, Braun, Endless Summer), Matt Maguire (GWAR) and Bob Gorman (GWAR). Z2 Comics (Judas Priest, Dio, Anthrax) have teamed up with GWAR to produce what will surely be known as the ultimate illustrated saga of the beloved Scumdogs of the Duoverse.
"This was the most utterly engrossing book I've ever read! I couldn't wait until I'd read what was on the page before I was compelled to turn it! This novel has the one element that is missing in so many so-called literary masterpieces: It's about me!"
-Bälsäc The Jaws 'o Death
"GWAR has made sure that this story is a full throttle hysterical ride into tipping every sacred cow possible and I consider it an honor to help bring this chapter of the band's legacy to fetid, pulsing, life."
-RANTZ HOSELEY, editor Z2
Stay tuned for more news and music from the forthcoming album “The New Dark Ages.”
