CANDLELIGHT: New Releases in 2014 – Krieg, Winterfylleth, Burzum

Candlelight Records is gearing up for a busy autumn with planned releases from Winterfylleth, Burzum, and Krieg set to kick things off in September. Preorders via itunes, Amazon, and other physical and digital outlets will begin in early August. Preorders via the label’s official North American webstore and Bandcamp page will launch August 1.

Silent for nearly four years, US black metal icons Krieg will present their seventh full length recording Transient on September 2. Metal Sucks says “Krieg is all about mood. And that mood is suffocating and bleak.” Blabbermouth calls band leader/founder Imperial (aka Neill Jameson), “a master of the sonic conveyance of dread and hopelessness.” Featuring Jameson with studio guitarists A. Poole and D. Zdanavage, bassist D. Sykes, and drummer J. Dost, the album also features guest appearances from Dwid Hellion (Integrity) and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth). Jameson notes, “this is the first album we have done that features a band that has worked together for an extended period of time that had a fully realized vision of how the record was supposed to sound.”

Transient features eleven new songs, including a remake of Amebix’s “Winter.” Jameson says, “there was never any idea to stay within the confines that black metal has become. This was liberation. It is probably the most ‘black metal’ record I’ve done in almost ten years.” Like prior albums, Transient is full of personal reflection. “This record encompasses another autobiographical gallery of a life misspent, a negative existence,” shares Jameson. “At its core, it is probably the most miserable and anger-fueled thing I’ve ever put to tape.” Touring is set to be announced shortly. Visit the band’s official Facebook page for complete details.

Winterfylleth advances their global rise with the release of their fourth full-length album, The Divination of Antiquity, on September 16. Pitchfork says, “Winterfylleth’s take on black metal is as cold as any Norwegian son.” Stereogum’s Michael Nelson boldly notes, “I’ve never understood why Winterfylleth aren’t one of the biggest black metal bands in the world.” Eight new vitriolic anthems gorged with the band’s technical precision await a growing international fanbase. “I feel like we’ve really put our all into this record and that it shows through in the final songs,” says vocliast Chris Naughton. “it’s the first record where we’ve truly come together and written it as a band, pouring over songs for weeks to get them just right. I guess we felt a bit more pressure this time but we really turned that into something positive.”

Since their formation in 2007, England’s Winterfylleth has conjured moods and emotions that range from vicious and violent to melodic and elegant. The band recently contributed to One And All, Together, For Home; a special compilation (Season of Mist) that finds the band performing their version of the old English folk ballad “The Three Ravens.” The acoustic number illustrates the heavy historical influence that has always been at the core of the band’s lyrics. With UK dates alongside Behemoth set for early winter, Winterfylleth’s siege is indeed full-throttle. “We have made a quintessentially Winterfylleth album on Divination,” Naughton continues. “but we’ve also shone light into a few dark corners and pushed the envelope on what we can write as a band; bringing in different tempos, some slower songs and a few doomier influences. For me this represents that band at our creative, visceral, and collaborative best.”

Burzum’s The Days Of Yore continues the controversial musician’s post-incarceration output of recordings. In stores September 2, the album follows the ambient and haunting sounds of Burzum’s most recent releases. Inspired by Varg’s extensive knowledge of European history, it continues his explorative sound and lyrical works. He says, “it is my first step towards something new, which at the same time is as old as the roots of Europe. I try to transport the listener to the days of yore, to make them feel the past that is still alive in their own blood.” Released in Europe a few weeks ago, the American release will allow fans to purchase the album at normal domestic prices.

Other recordings planned by Candlelight for the autumn include the second full length from Falloch and the anticipated new album from Orange Goblin. The label’s latest releases include Corrosion of Conformity’s IX (in stores today), Emperor’s In The Nightside Eclipse/20th Year Anniversary (limited edition digibook released 6/24), and earlier label debut’s from Earth Crisis (Salvation of Innocents, out late March) and The Wounded Kings (Consolamentum, out late March). The label is already looking at 2015 recordings from Vision of Disorder, Sigh, Demon Lung, Abigail Williams, Absu, and more.

 

VISION OF DISORDER: East And West Coast Shows; Australian Soundwave Gigs

This week, Long Island-based hardcore innovators Vision of Disorder will hit the stage for the first time in 2013 with a duo of East Coast gigs, once again in support of their acclaimed new album, The Cursed Remain Cursed. This Saturday, January 26th they will storm Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey followed by Sunday at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York, with support from fellow NYC tech metal squad Car_Bomb at both shows.

Next week, VOD will cross the country for their first West Coast headlining performances supporting the new album at Studio Seven in Seattle on Friday, February 1st, and at the Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, California the next night.

Later this month, Vision of Disorder will traverse the globe for a massive set of festival and tour dates across Australia. First set to perform as part the massive Soundwave Festival across the country along with Linkin Park, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Ghost, Tomahawk and countless others. Between the festival’s segments, VOD will also share the stage with longtime hometown NYCH brethren Sick Of It All and Madball for two crushing shows together. See the band’s full tour itinerary posted below.

The first album from Vision of Disorder in over a decade, The Cursed Remain Cursed was released September 18th via Candlelight Records. One of the most dynamic and cleverly destructive releases in VOD’s twenty year history, the album surges with over forty minutes of brand new material, produced by Will Putney (Shadows Fall, Suicide Silence) and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Social Distortion), and is already an instant classic with longtime fans of the band.

VOD has released official videos for the songs “Hard Times” and “Set To Fail” in addition to releasing audio for the opening track “Loveless.”

VISION OF DISORDER: Drop New Video Via Noisey/Vice; Hurricane Relief Show Nears

Long Island hardcore pioneers Vision Of Disorder have just released their newly-completed official video for the pummeling track “Hard Times.” The fourth anthem from their lauded, fourth full-length The Cursed Remain Cursed, VOD enlisted the expertise of Tom J. Cronin to direct and construct the high-paced visual depiction of the song, filmed live at two vicious gigs in London and Manchester just days before the release of The Cursed Remain Cursed this past September.

Crowd-walk, stagedive and jaw-punch your way through “Hard Times” via Noisey, VICE Magazine’s music channel, RIGHT HERE.

We are also now just days away from “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief.” After witnessing the devastation brought on by Hurricane Sandy on October 29th, the band immediately reorganized their headlining show in Brooklyn this Saturday, November 24th to benefit victims of Sandy’s wrath across the region. An event coordinated by Vision Of Disorder alongside Candlelight Records, Earsplit PR and Metal Insider, officially, 100% of the ticket proceeds from VOD as well as supporting acts Yuppicide, Swarm of Arrows and Primitive Weapons will be donated to the Red Cross to aid residents whose lives were impacted by the storm. Show attendees are invited to bring supplies — nonperishable food, batteries, toilet paper, etc. — for area shelters and food banks, as donation bins will be posted outside of the venue. Supplies to aid pets and animals displaced by the storm will be donated to Last Resort Animal Rescue in New Jersey.

Those not in the area for this event who wish to help can make donations directly to the Red Cross via the Picking Up Change Firstgiving.

VISION OF DISORDER: Brooklyn Headlining Show Now A Red Cross Benefit For Hurricane Sandy Victims

Today Vision Of Disorder confirms that all the proceeds from their upcoming headlining concert in Brooklyn later this month will be donated to the Red Cross, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

What was simply a headlining show for the band has now been dubbed “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief.” Vision Of Disorder initiated this act of support to their community after witnessing the catastrophic demolition across the New York metropolitan area and beyond as Sandy surged through our region on October 29th. VOD, as well as the other bands performing at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 24th, will contribute donations to the Red Cross to help aid the decimated areas and many displaced local residents throughout the Northeast as the season grows colder.

In a collective statement the members of VOD had this to say: “Our hearts go out to those severely affected by this tragic incident. Being from Long Island, Hurricane Sandy has (quite literally) hit home for us. The music scene in Long Island, The New York metro area and New Jersey have been so supportive to VOD over the years that we felt donating the proceeds from the Brooklyn show was a no-brainer. We are proud to announce that the opening acts (Primitive Weapons, Yuppicide, Swarm of Arrows) have also agreed to donate their proceeds. We hope that this small gesture can add to the ongoing efforts and help rebuild these traumatized areas. We look forward to seeing you all on Nov 24th to support this cause.”

In addition to the funds generated by Vision Of Disorder, Yuppicide, Primitive Weapons and Swarm of Arrows at “Picking Up Change: Hardcore For Hurricane Relief” going directly to the Red Cross, show attendees are invited to bring supplies—canned/nonperishable food, batteries, toilet paper, etc.—for area shelters and food banks, as donation bins will be posted outside of the venue. Supplies to aid pets and animals displaced by the storm are also acceptable and will be donated to Last Resort Animal Rescue in New Jersey.

The members of Vision Of Disorder, in an alliance with Candlelight Records, Earsplit PR, Metal Insider, The Music Hall of Williamsburg and all parties involved with this event, are reaching out to all area hardcore and metal fans to join them on November 24th, not only to take part in what is sure to be a high-action live show, but more importantly to help contribute to this imperative objective of getting the displaced families and businesses back on their feet. Doors open at 7:30pm.
