The song comes off the band’s eleventh full-length studio album, “Kata Ton Demona Eaftou”, which was released on March 5 (four days earlier in Europe) via Season Of Mist.

ROTTING CHRIST employ poetry from the Sumerians and Incas as well as a Romanian folk song, the tale of an undead Russian water spirit, Voodoo, Zoroastrianism and other sources.”

TWITCHING TONGUES: Video From Los Angeles Quintet Premieres At Revolver
Standing alone, with an amalgam of influences from a plethora of genres within the contemporary extreme underground scene yet bowing to nobody, is Los Angeles-based quintet TWITCHING TONGUES.
Relentlessly savage, utterly memorable, and at all times compelling, the sophomore LP fromTWITCHING TONGUES takes all of this devotion to the next level. With nearly forty minutes of uncompromising crossover fury, In Love There Is No Law melds elements of Carnivore, Obituary, Celtic Frost, Life Of Agony, Sam Black Church, elder Cro-Mags and Sheer Terror into an instantly mesmerizing, morose and wholly distinctive alloy of metal, hardcore and beyond. Modernizing the works of the masters from two decades or more ago, with each hook and chorus the band’s punishing and primitive stylings grow more memorable than the last and will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression upon a solitarily listen. In Love There Is No Law was recorded, produced and mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit, then mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and will see release on August 20th via upstate New York-based Closed Casket Activities.
Preceding the release of the LP, this week TWITCHING TONGUES and Closed Casket release a brand new 7”/digital single for the title track and arguably the most iconic and encompassing song on In Love There Is No Law, in addition dropping the band’s first official video, the brilliant HD visual depiction of “In Love There Is No Law” was filmed, directed and edited by Joel Perkins.
Tune in now and check out “In Love There Is No Law” through an exclusive premiere at Revolver Magazine’s web portal RIGHT HERE.
TWITCHING TONGUES will take to the streets all year in conjunction of the release of the new LP, with a month-long European tour with Harm’s Way confirmed for late this month through the end of July, their pending fourth American tour in the works, and more to follow. See the full list of confirmed dates below and stay tuned for further updates in the weeks ahead.
Neo-barbarians TWITCHING TONGUES have proven themselves as a hard working unit with their own goals, passing by contemporary acts on a daily basis — not only proving themselves as band with their own vision to be superseded by none, but in the end constantly producing a sound that is unarguably all their own by disregarding modern trends in metal and hardcore and coalescing into its own living, breathing, and dying entity. A 2010 formation quickly gave way to local shows in the LA area as well as a demo, which was followed by a 7” single, their first and second US tours, their first European tour, and a crushing slot on Southern Cali’s Sound & Fury Festival. 2012 was arguably even busier forTWITCHING TONGUES, as they released their debut LP Sleep Therapy as well as theirPreacher Man single, toured the US for the third time, toured Europe for the second time, pounded the West Coast of the US with regional shows and two full tours, and killed audiences at massive stateside hardcore festivals including Rain Fest in Seattle and This Is Hardcore in Philadelphia.
BLACK TAR PROPHET: Despondent Sludge Duo Signs To Domestic Genocide
Driven by chemical despondency and the liberation of low-end audio scum, Nashville-based gruesome twosome BLACK TAR PROPHET has confirmed that their pending second LP will see release via D.I.Y. noisemongers Domestic Genocide.
Bearing a noxious brew of fuzz and misery-powered fuckcrush akin to Bongzilla, Buzzov*en, Weedeater, Noothgrush and the like, yet void of any vocal contributions, it’s pretty obvious from opening note to crushing closing of every track what the instrumental act is focused on; playing purely pummeling auditory filth with corrosive drugs coursing through it all.
Since their 2011 convergence the duo BLACK TAR PROPHET has soiled the lands with a rash of demo releases, and in 2012 released both a one-song/forty-two minute album called Note To Nod, and a split with Atlanta act Crawl, with a lineup shift happening the same year amidst the plethora of recordings coming into existence. They’ve endured tours of the Southern US states, and have tore up local venues with countless regional acts including Order Of The Owl, Backwoods Payback, Before The Eyewall, Crawl, Gorgantherron, Ponykiller, Motherplant and many more. The band will focus on intoxicating more audiences in the live setting over the rest of 2013 as they conjure and capture the material for their new full-length which will see release in early 2014 via Domestic Genocide.
In the meantime, BLACK TAR PROPHET will continue to bring the pain live. The newest batch of tour dates will begin this Friday, June 21st as the band begins burning through clubs across through ten cities in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Georgia. On August 24th they’ll take part in Doom At The Beach II in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with Halmos, Crawl, Dead Southern Bishop, Heathen Bastard, Snake Oil, Greenseer, Grim Creeper, Compel, Tripping The Mechanism and more. Additional tour dates will follow as they’re confirmed.

IDES OF GEMINI Premieres “Starless Midnight” Video Via Cvlt Nation
Following a wildly victorious tour alongside cult metal sorcerers, Ghost B.C., Los Angeles’ favorite ethereal doom dealers IDES OF GEMINI today unveil a brand new video for the track “Starless Midnight” via Cvlt Nation. The ghostly tune comes by way of the trance-inducing trio’s Constantinople full-length, released through Neurot Recordings last Spring.
Elaborates guitarist J. Bennett “We shot this video in the middle of nowhere during an off day on the Ghost B.C. tour. It was directed by our friend Daciana Birladeanu, a Romanian sorceress who also happens to be my cousin. The process basically consisted of me complaining for eight hours while the girls did all the work. But at least I got to wear my Shriner belt buckle. Enjoy!”
Adds Cvlt Nation: “This visual is a nuanced visual journey through one of my favorite songs off the album. Like their music, it is bleak and dreamy at the same time, and although shot in black and white there is a warmth to it of fire and human body.”
Lose yourself in “Starless Midnight” at THIS LOCATION.
IDES OF GEMINI’s Constantinopleis a truetranscendental doom masterwork. Applauded by Outburn “depressing dynamics topped by ethereal wonderment,” and called, “…a dirg-y doom crawl of an album…,” by Decibel, the record continues to raise the eyebrows on the non-initiated. Purchase Constantinople at THIS LOCATION today!
