DSCD 1-A.indd“If there’s one thing Pittsburgh knows how to do well, it’s how to rock.  In the words of my friend RJ who lives in the area, there’s plenty of good rocking to be found in Pittsburgh.  Monolith Wielder definitely fits this description, and while they skew towards the doom side of the spectrum there are still plenty of hard rocking grooves to be found.  Formed in 2014, Monolith Wielder will be releasing their self-titled debut full length on October 17th via Italy’s Argonauta Records.” words by TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY, who hosts a new song premiere from MONOLITH WIELDER forthcoming album.



komatsu coverDutch Sludge Rockers KOMATSU return with their new album RECIPE FOR MURDER ONE, release date Sept 23rd. The song THE LONG WAY HOME is premiered by DOOMED AND STONED.

Doomed and Stoned says abotu the song: “The Long Way Home” begins with a magnetic stoner riff, infectious beat, and gritty vocals (fans of Clutch will dig this). The best part for me is that these guys still tune low that underpins an extremely satisfying chorus. A brilliant vibe best cranked up loud on a hot summer day, brew in hand. Trust me, you won’t be annoying the neighbors with this one; no, you just might bring the neighborhood together for a block party.”



QE-COVERProvidence based cosmonauts Queen Elephantine return with their fifth opus Kala. With a fluid line-up and various experiments in approach over the course of their four albums, Queen Elephantine is a nebulous worship of heavy mood and time. The group formed in 2006 in Hong Kong, but has always been a shapeshifter. At the end of 2007 it moved base to New York and is currently based in Providence.

Kala was produced by guitarist Indrayudh Shome and mastered by Billy Anderson and will be released on October 21st. The excellent two panels digisleeve concept-artwork was designed by Adrian Dexter (Elder).

OBESE @ Thy Demons Be Scribblin

I’m dead serious when I say you may not hear a better debut album from a new band this year. Most albums, especially debut albums, have a stinker or two and overall display a band in search of their “own sound” but on Kali YugaObese sound like a band that has been playing and putting out albums for a solid decade at least.
