Unsigned and Unholy: Veilburner, Age of Woe, Jean-Mo
We first featured Veilburner in this space in 2014 on the heels of their debut album The Three Lightbearers. In 2015 they followed that up with Noumenon, and they’re on pace to keep their one-album-per-year schedule with The Obscene Rite, coming before 2016 ends. If first single “Eucharist of the Breathing Abyss” is any indication they’ve only gotten heavier, tighter, more visceral and startlingly nastier since we last checked in; we hope the full album has more of the same.
Age of Woe last released an album in 2013 and they’ve got a new one on the way later this year, but we were SO stoked on discovering the old material a couple weeks back that we just couldn’t wait to post about it. You’ll be hearing more about Age of Woe in this space once the band puts out some music from the forthcoming An Ill Wind Blowing, but for now jam Inhumanform below; it’s filthy, punishing and extremely dark.
One-man Canadian instrumentalist Jean-Mo makes music using a variety of synthesizers, effects gear, Pro Tools and his homemade guitar. It’s mostly orchestral in nature, but there’s something super dark about it that fits in here even though it’s most certainly not metal, aesthetically speaking. Check out Reborn below.
