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.

4/20 Genre Jumping Metal Insanity at SIP Orlando! by orlandooom407

Miami’s own xoxotic genre disinterested quintet Orbweaver and the blackened swamp slathered Slashpine make their eagerly anticipated returns to Central Florida tomorrow night at SIP Orlando. Local support includes local death-doom masters Druid Lord and the recently reunited black metal mongers Legions. Along with that this show marks the debut of local math metal outfit: Infinite Earths. IE features guitar from Fire in the Cave guitarist Ken Reda; he is joined by illustrator/vocalist Josh “Maz” Mazorra and drum wizard Elliot Smiggen. I posted links to music for each band below aside from Inifinite Earths who has yet to record:

See you all tomorrow!

Swamp Abyss Sorcery – A Guide to Floridian Metal Circa 2012 by orlandooom407

I sincerely apologize for the lack of updates over the past few days. Combined with sending this grotesque chimeric bastard’s likeness to many of the blogs and forums that I frequent I’ve been heavily preoccupied by life, Fire in the Cave writing sessions and other writing projects. His name is THROMBIBULOUS and he exemplifies what happens when Rick Scott reveals his true form, except well, his flamingo penis is probably significantly smaller. He’s the newest mascot for several of us Florida people who decided to compile our songs together for this FREE COMPILATION entitled Swamp Abyss Sorcery. Satanik Recordings and HOT GRAVES compiled and released this free digital compilation on Valentine’s Day equipped with lore and artwork by Jean Saiz:

To help consolidate all necessary free time for the sake of enjoying the music I’m going to provide a series of one sentence matter of fact explanations of each band:

Miami:

Shroud EaterA  malevolent and equivocally dissonant stoner metal trio armed with a PhD in savagery.

Holly Hunt – Armageddon flavored instrumental drone doom duo with an enamoring gazey trim.

Orbweaver – Deranged psychedelic death metal hurdling through space at speeds that make The Milennium Falcon look like your little sister’s moped.

Orlando:

Druid Lord – Tomb smashing death-doom quartet smelt together by ancient witchery and venomous rhythms.

Fire in the CaveI don’t critique my own band. Grim Kim Kelly did though.

Tampa / St.Petersburg:

flyingsnakes -Explosive blackened crust that eviscerates boundaries between metallic and anarchic.

FatalUnabashed thrash that will trash your entire hash stash to fuel their toxic lashed dash.

Party Time – Hyper active hardcore punk in less than two minutes or your punishment’s free.

Jacksonville / Gainesville:

Hollow Leg – Ravenous Floridian cult classic doom quartet that’ll have you saying “WHAT?!” for days.

Extremely Rotten – Red herring gore grind brutality with vocal tones so low that if plumbers had spidey sense it would violently tingle against the subconscious.

HOT GRAVES – Menacing blackened thrash burning a glorious Midnight inspired homage straight through your mind’s eye.

Shroud Eater Second Pressing by orlandooom407

I’m thrilled to announce that Shroud Eater has sold out of the first pressing for their first LP: Thundernoise!

Here’s what Shroud Eater posted on their facebook yesterday:

“2nd pressing of our album, limited to 50 copies, is up and ready to roll. after these 50, you will only be able to download the album at our bandcamp, or from any of the torrent sites with the free downloads.”

If you haven’t claimed a copy of this masterpiece, your time grows thin.

Check Thundernoise out here: http://shroudeater.bandcamp.com/album/thundernoise

For those who will find themselves in Miami this Friday, Shroud Eater joins Masticator, Orbweaver (featuring members of Gigan) and Slashpine at Beezlebub’s Cave (click flyer for details)!
