Earth Joined By Holly Hunt For Only Florida Show In 2012 by orlandooom407

My excitement has been in the red zone since I heard Earth was playing a Florida show, and in my own town none the less. The god fathers, hallmarked and validated by Nirvana icon Kurt Cobain, have undergone a myriad of musical journeys through the catch all classification of ‘drone’. Whether you like your entrancing to be malevolent or more mystical there’s probably something in an Earth set for your ears. The show’s support includes the wacky piano enthralled jazz music of Steve Moore under the moniker Stebmo and the tectonic refrains of Miami’s loudest (drone) duo Holly Hunt. To help better explain the importance of this head hammering hat trick billing I spoke candidly to Holly Hunt earlier this afternoon. For those unaware of the pulverizing power of Holly Hunt their presence on stage is nothing short of sonic savagery akin to an eternal over exposure to CO2. Holly Hunt attributes their attention ‘riff length’ to “…a feel. Instinct.”. Gavin elaborated saying that “some deliberation occurs sometimes with some riff/tracks/compositions, mostly though it’s a gut feeling. We try and stay as present and aware as possible when writing.”

It’s no secret that Gavin and Betty are proud mega fans about Earth’s music. Gavin claims that their attractions to the band are the “…raw, mediated energy. The tone is sick, dark, entropic. The slow tempo perfectly illustrates the grind of life.” When asked them both what their favorite song was, they both simultaneously answered with ‘Ouroboros Is Broken’ (which you can jam below).

Make sure to grab your ticket now, because I hear they’re going fast and this show should be a sell out. You can purchase ticket by clicking here.

Swamp Abyss Sorcery Fest – Saturday 10/13 @ BACKBOOTH by orlandooom407

Salutations readers. Our inactivity ends today. I went over to the fuse box this morning, flipped the switch and proceeded to breath in the gaseous dusty internet tumbling through the air. Not only has the blog been resuscitated, but we plan to begin hosting shows in Central Florida once again starting in December. I think all ya’ll will find yourselves presently surprised at the lineup for our comeback show.

But, before we get ahead of ourselves here’s a much more immediate means to satisfy the heavy appetite. This year, and month in particular, have been rife with new releases from the likes of big leaguers like Converge, Trash Talk and even those sci-fi dorks Between the Buried and Me. I’ve had the pleasure of attending three delicious festivals myself: Maryland Deathfest X, 305 Fest and Scion Rock Fest 2012. If you buy all this apocalypse garbage I’d say this year would qualify as a grand finale for any heavy enthusiast. Now, Orlando, yet again, gets to throw in to this gargantuan pile thanks to Ninety Proof Productions. Hopefully this next image jogs some memories:

If you haven’t snagged this yet, do your ears the favor. This compilation offers tracks from the best in Floridian extreme metal bar none. While the upcoming fest doesn’t feature every single band included there’s inarguable representation. Fast, slow, you name it you’ll hear it. Orlando’s representation includes the blackened humidity of Fire In The Cave, the tombstone ridden deathdoom hypnosis of Druid Lord and the apocalyptic doom country anthems of Hollow Leg. The Miami hat trick of Shroud Eater, Holly Hunt, and Orbweaver stand to stake their claim as our unconditionally loved cousins of the glades. Don’t forget St. Petersburg and Gainesville either, represented by the drunken metal punks flyingsnakes and midnight (pun intended) riders Hot Graves. Click the flier above for more details and some gut busting comments.

Now, one last order of business. We are actively accepting sample submissions for writers who want to contribute. If that sounds like you please contact Orlandooom407@gmail.com for more details.

Don’t forget you can always keep up with us on FACESPACE and TWATTER (@Orlandooom).

See ya’ll Saturday.

Scion Rock Fest kicks off tomorrow at 2PM EST in Tampa, Florida. We all couldn’t surpass our current state of elation if we tried. Here’s a handy colorful chart, created by Floridian West Coast native Chris Elmore, to help you in breaking up your evening. Orlandooom contributors and friends are sure to litter to floors of The Rtiz, Czar Bar and The Orpheum. I don’t know about everyone else, but there’s no way I’d miss The Atlas Moth, Sleep, Witch Mountain, Church of Misery or Saint Vitus.

[REVIEW] Blackwolfgoat – Dronolith by orlandooom407
May 17, 2012, 4:29 pm
Filed under: Ambient, Drone | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

All kneel before the Dronolith and revel within the splendor of it’s shadow! “BLACKWOLFGOAT is the solo drone/ambient project from ex-HACKMAN / MILLIGRAM guitarist Darryl Shepard,” or so his Bandcamp page says. What Darryl doesn’t want you to know: he’s actually just an enchanted floating guitar played by a pair of enormous spectral hands. These diligent hands pull from a small assortment of riffs that come to know the birth, flourishing  ellipse and calming dissolution within their sonic life cycle. Life came from fuzz burns with droning focus. His sounds elicit a certain smiling musical control, as he boasts that “all songs and sounds on this album were recorded live in the studio, no overdubs.” Of course not, the Dronolith breathes and circulates of it’s own volition. Furthermore, the lack of percussion furnishes a certain attention to the enamoring tones. Only one instrument needed for scalding a white hot trance through the listener.

Monday Mantras – OM and the star department by orlandooom407

Trying out a new segment where I’ll bring you the smooth tunes. Classics, new stuff, unsigned stuff. Expect a variety of song duos to kick start Monday morning.

First up we dig out the classic OM track “At Giza”. This invaluable gem is part of the Conference of Birds release from 2006. If you haven’t heard of Om, but you love meditating and songs that convey a journey then stream away. Kick out the ever building rhythms. Om is comprised of the rhythm section of classic doom metal juggernauts Sleep (who are also playing at this year’s Scion Rock Fest in Tampa).

Next we’ve got a single from the star department out of Dublin. This duo conjures up a thoroughly therapeutic view into their world in under three minutes. Porcelain Doll heralds a calculated snapshot of meticulously layered electronic ambiance. The track is free, and if your blood pressure needs some dispersing then click above.
