Serpent AscendingSerpent Ascending
Ananku (I, Voidhanger)
On a playlist with: Monarque, King Diamond, Death
Listen Ananku full stream (here)

You might keep checking and re-checking the line-up for the sixth Messe des Morts festival in Montreal this November. Is it reality?? Two or three of its bands are enough to snare a fan of the Sepulchral Records vibe; but MdM goes way further. It includes exclusive appearances by awesome way-out-of-towners Cult Of Fire, Mgla, Zhrine, Ulcerate, and Aosoth, and collects awesome Quebec bands Forteresse, Monarque, and Cantique Lepreux. That’s eight bands endorsed emphatically by MetalSucks. There’s two more confirmed and MdM’s flyer states more acts are to be announced, so it’d be greedy to ask for more. So let’s keep this little prayer to the gods of booking just between us: Neige Et Noirceur, Waxen, Akhlys, and Serpent Ascending. Please!

On Ephemeral Substrates CD (Arachnophobia)
On a playlist with: Stomach Earth, Gojira, Skrew
Listen “This Place Is A Tomb” (here) “Millenium ” (here)

Emperor Rhombus on Qip’s surprising 2015 albumOn Ephemeral Substrates: “I listened to the whole album, and then listened to it again, because On Ephemeral Substrates fucking rules. The mixture of industrial, doom, death metal, and goth there is perfect, full of really potent and stark disgust. Imagine Red Harvest and Stomach Earth collaborated with Snorre Ruch on a project about mind-control.” Now on classy CD via Arachnophobia Records.

Cult of Fire Life Sex and DeathCult Of Fire
Life, Sex & Death (Beyond Eyes)
On a playlist with: Death Karma, Watain, Inquisition
Listen “Death” (here)

For those who consider Cult Of Fire’s last album a masterpiece, it probably hurts if you didn’t get into the weird EP that came next. But no big whoop, we’re happy to be back on the horse here two years later for a second EP, titled Life, Sex & Death. To answer your first question, Yes that ampersand in the title feels a bit sassy, like an Extreme album, which is weird for a band that titled their masterpiece in indecipherable sanskrit. Also weird is the awkward passage that closes “Death,” the otherwise raging preview track. Also also weird is the noisy mix. Still, if Life and Sex are half as good, we’re golden.

An Endless SporadicAn Endless Sporadic
Magic Machine
On a playlist with: PCU soundtrack, Cairo, Cornelius
Listen “The Departure” and “Sky Run” (here)

If you’re reading this STCOT capsule on break from your job as the guy who must contract music for a brand new and extremely foofy new age video game from Japan where the player is a butterfly that turns into a pixie love orb who travels across dimensions to liberate beams of light from their bulb prisons, then you’re welcome I guess.

SyndromeSyndrome
Forever And A Day (Consouling Sounds)
On a playlist with: Brian Eno’s Music For Airports, “A Warm Place” by Nine Inch Nails, Mono
Listen “Forever And A Day (excerpt)” (here)

You’re sipping a Jamba Juice at the mall some Saturday when your eye stops on a handsome guy wearing earbuds. In mid-stride by the pretzel stand, he seems to slacken. His pace slows until he’s stood stock still; others stream past him on each side. He’s dazed and upset, seemingly gripped by memory while staring through a window into the future. To his knees he falls and a resigned sob escapes him. Why? he beseeches the mall’s fancy glass ceiling. As memories of his many mistakes fill him, he mouths the words “I’m sorry.” You think to yourself, Ah yes, that happened to me too when I first heard Syndrome’s Forever And A Day. He’ll be down for a minute or so. You could take his wallet.

In The Woods ...In The Woods …
Pure (Debemur Mori)
On a playlist with: Type O Negative, Fear Factory in slow motion, Katatonia
Listen three jams from Pure (here)

You’ve probably encountered a million bands compared to Pink Floyd, Genesis, and King Crimson — but never one heavy as In The Woods… . It’s a sort of spacey art-doom metal seemingly joined by a guitarist from a Marduk-weight black metal band. The latter is the sound of savagery amid the former’s exultant tones. How many psychedelic prog albums feel dangerous?
