Elder will release their 5th studio record, Omens on April 24 through Stickman Records/Armageddon. This will be their first album with new drummer Georg Ebert.

'Embers' is the first taste off Omens, listen to it below:

Regarding the LP, guitarist/vocalist Nick DiSalvo mentioned: “To me, Omens is our most complete work to date: a set of songs that express the breadth of the band’s collective influences. After recording The Gold & Silver Sessions EP, it felt like we fully scratched the itch to explore our minimalist side, taking a step back from the proggy song structures and heavy guitar work of our previous records and just letting the music drift along. When beginning to work on Omens, the goal was to integrate these two tendencies in the band – to make a modern day progressive rock record, but also to take time to jam and float when ...more

Mark Lanegan details new LP 5 replies

Mark Lanegan will release a brand new album on May 15, entitled Straight Songs of Sorrow. The LP was conceived after finishing his memoir, Sing Backwards and Weep, that will see the light of day on April 30. The songs are tied to the subjects discussed in the book, as Mark mentioned:

“Writing the book, I didn’t get catharsis, all I got was a Pandora’s box full of pain and misery. I went way in, and remembered shit I’d put away 20 years ago. But I started writing these songs the minute I was done, and I realised there was a depth of emotion because they were all linked to memories from this book. It was a relief to suddenly go back to music. Then I realised that was the gift of the book: these songs. I’m really proud of this record.”

For example, ‘Hanging On (For DRC)’ is a loving ode to his friend Dylan Carlson (Earth). “I was always unhappy, and he was the guy who was always smiling, even through my crazy schemes that eventually got bot ...more

"A touch more Satanic than our previous works but still coming from the same place of inspiration which is simply sounds we haven't heard before. We had SO much fun making this. A blistering two days in La Chunky resulted in these three tracks that explore the monolithic and crushing ends of the sound spectrum.

For those that miss our metal days, here you go. For the rest, fear not, we have two albums on the hard drive and plans to make another (the 6th) in summer time. The sounds on these are a lot more... Well, they are just different and not metal. A lot of things but certainly not metal. With these three records we want to either self-release or find a label. The prior ...more
