download: TRAVIS RYAN (Cattle Decapitation singer) / DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS
The long out-of-print TRAVIS RYAN / DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS split CD is now available for digital download @ http://chromepeelerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/travis-ryan-death-by-a-thousand-cuts

One of the more interesting pairings of harsh, electronic horror, upstart noise duo Death By A Thousand Cuts team up with CATTLE DECAPITATION vocalist Travis Ryan to transmit an hour of grim, nightmarish drone noise. Travis Ryan's four tracks open the disc with an edgy, paranoid ambience that mixes environmental buzzes and electronic hum with blurry theremin melodies and hushed buzzsaw tones, evoking the faint but discernible hum of electricity you feel when standing at the edge of an urban landscape in the middle of the night. Occasionally Ryan's droning dread lurches into a staticky overload that recalls the chopped up circuit burn of John Wiese, but more often drifts through a halogen-lit dreamworld similar to a grittier, urban take on Glass Throat Records atmospherics.

The other side of this split is haunted by Death By A Thousand Cut's nightmarish free electronic designs. DBATC's industrial hallucinations are conjured from noxious bass sinewaves and cloudy keyboard drones, curling upwards out of metal-on-metal carnage and blasts of laser-beam effects pedal violence, and the music becomes strangely beautiful, especially with the cosmic, Troum-meets-Bastard Noise insectoid frequencies of the final track "Approach Of The Black Claw".

STILL AVAILABLE from Chrome Peeler Records:
Unearthly Trance / The Endless Blockade "split" LP (doom vs. power violence)
Merzbow / The Guilt of... "split" LP (Japanese noise legend vs. EYEHATEGOD side project)
Mike IX Williams "That's What the Obituary Said" 7"+poster (EYEHATEGOD vocalist)

Dracula's Ball, October 30th! Celldweller, Sepharim Shock, DJ's, Candy, + More!

The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Saturday, October 30th and includes live performances by Seraphim Shock and Celldweller as well as three DJs spinning in three separate rooms. All ages are welcome. If you want to drink alcohol, you must be 21+ w/photo ID. Tickets are $16 and are on sale now at Ticketmaster (in person or online), IsoTank.com and Digital Ferret CDs. Our Halloween event has sold out for many years running.... As such, we recommend advance tickets in the strongest possible terms. Every year we turn away several hundred people who want to attend but did not purchase tickets.

Costumes are encouraged but not required. Although this is our Halloween event, please note that it takes place on Saturday the 30th of October. Of course, a few hours after we open, midnight will roll around and we'll kick off the official start of Halloween!

Dracula's Ball takes place at Shampoo Nightclub in Philadelphia, on Willow Street between 7th and 8th Streets. The club has a large enclosed parking lot which is free, but it does fill up early during Ball events. Doors open at 9pm and the event ends at 2am. In addition to live bands, there are 3 DJs on 3 dancefloors, vendors, candy and door prizes. The official DB website can be found at: http://www.draculasball.com/

New Free Doom Album From Starvation Ritual
Hi all,

I'm trying to spread the word about my doom metal band Starvation Ritual's new free EP,
The Gallows' Lament. It is possibly our heaviest and slowest record to date, and it's available for free download via last.fm and archive.org:


Fans of super slow and heavy stuff should hopefully dig it. There may be a cdr version of this later, but for now, it's online and free.

I have a question...

I know there are lots of musicians here...

Now, say you had a band or solo project and had a name, logo all that and had been doing music for a few years. Now, this name was the best you could come up with and it stuck and you were in love with it as it summed up your band and its sound in utter perfection.

Say, a band from overseas started later using the exact same name... What happens? Does one quit? change names? what would you all do if the perfect name for your band was taken by someone else which was previously an original name?

Cheers for any input/advice

*cough* hypothetical of course

I bought Swallow the Sun's first album The Morning Never Came (not stocked locally btw..) I'm starting to really like the music but I find the vocals kind of grating :( Unfortunately.

Comments? I'll probably buy the second album too, cause I'm a sucker.

Hello all, I'm new to LJ. I found this community through a My Dying Bride search. I don't know a lot of doom bands, my favorites being MDB and Anathema. Will be reading for suggestions!
