Colorado’s COBALT, over the years and since they began working with Profound Lore Records with
2007’s landmark “Eater Of Birds” album, have become recognized as one of the most singular and
defining extreme American metal bands today. Their 2009 album “Gin” is recognized as a pillar in
American extreme metal, a milestone album of literature-influenced progressive apocalyptic
wasteland metal that took the American metal scene by storm and landed on pretty much all best-of
year end lists the year it came out.
Now almost exactly seven years since the release of “Gin”, COBALT (now defined as the duo of
multi-instrumentalist/mastermind Erik Wunder and new vocalist Charlie Fell, ex-LORD MANTIS) are
poised to releases one of the most anticipated metal releases of 2016, their long-awaited new
double album “Slow Forever”
“Slow Forever” sees COBALT, after years dealing with personal turbulence, tragedy, contemplation,
and even confusion, return triumphant and focused as ever. With Wunder formulating their sound
that naturally takes off where “Gin” left off and new vocalist Fell bringing a new character and sense
of savagery and violence that’s synonymous with the COBALT sound, “Slow Forever” is another epic
offering from the COBALT cannon destined to hammer down and make its notable impact as one of
the most defining metal albums to be released in 2016.
Aseethe, the doom trio of Brian Barr (guitar, vocals, synth), Eric Diercks (drums, samples), and Danny Barr (bass, vocals), has a singular emphasis on crushing doom that utilizes space and repetition, taking a tip from drone music. The band is working on a new album for release in 2017.

Since Aseethe's inception, the band has been a favorite of other musicians and toured/shared bills with the likes of The Body, Northless, Inter Arma, Thou, and Bell Witch, and they'll be playing Midnite Communion IV in November with Cough, Hell, Destroy Judas, and Funerary, to name a few. Aseethe was recently picked up by Hexagram Booking and is working on a fall tour around Midnite Communion IV. Aseethe has released splits with Ghaust, Shores of the Tundra, and Mauul; Reverent Burden, a 12-inch; Red Horizon, a 12-inch that was a reworking of a Barn Owl track; the improvisational album Burdens II, and the EP Nothing Left, Nothing Gained.
