Headstone Brigade – Divine Vestiges FREE EP now available!

We would like to introduce Headstone Brigade which is the new folk project of Egan Budd/Xiphoid Dementia with this free downloadable and streaming EP featuring covers and traditional arrangements of folk songs. Headstone Brigade’s sound can be described as neofolk or melodramatic pop with a sea shanty twist due to the main instrument of accordion being featured in almost all tracks. This free EP is a precursor to a full-length which is coming later this year on Brave Mysteries.
Please check out the EP Divine Vestiges over at Headstone Brigade’s bandcamp …

Every year since 2012, we have been treated to a quality collaborative compilation between the iconic Malignant Records—a label that I recently described as “the leading name releasing the new generation of old-school industrial and dark ambient music today”—and arguably the strongest digital label that our scene has to offer in Kalpamantra. Originally finding a run as The Malignant Series, the annual compilation found a life of its own last year with Endless Descent Into Oblivion: a thirty-nine-track marathon of nearly perverse audial violence (The Vomit Arsonist‘s “Failed”; …

Tovarish is a Soviet-inspired doom/drone/noise band from Rhode Island (USA). The band is asked often, “Is it normal to want to kill myself after listening to you?” And the answer is, simply, “Yes.” There is no hope. There is no salvation. There is only Tovarish.
Often drawing comparisons to artists such as Sunn O))), Nortt, and SPK, Tovarish’s aesthetic evokes the majestic horror of war and the glory of the state through riffs played so slowly as to trouble the line between …

Xiphoid Dementia appearance on Sky Burial’s “There I Saw the Grey Wolf Gaping”

“There I Saw The Grey Wolf Gaping” marks a return to the shorter compostions which comprised Sky Burial’s first few releases. These tracks reflect the width and breadth of sounds which inspire Sky Burial’s brand of sonic eclecticism, from kosmische/krautrock, music concrete, and early industrial to shoegaze, ambient/drone, and avant-garde composers. Athough inspired by diverse genres, Sky Burial has created a cohesive sound of its own, often citing esoteric and mythological subject matter as a muse. This album features guest artists Danny Hyde (Coil), Jarboe, Anni Hogan (Marc and The …

Xiphoid Dementia – Might is Blight review in Special Interests #2

The boys over at Special Interests have been kind enough to write an extremely comprehensive and detailed review of Xiphoid Dementia’s Might is Blight CD released by Existence Establishment and still available from the shop.
Here is the review in it’s entirety:

Comparing this to past CDR works I have heard from this American project, and most of all comments I have heard from less open-minded noise crowd, I must say I was taken by surprise. Progression has been great. And even steps towards originality and more ambitious fields of creation. Xiphoid …

Review of “Might is Blight” CD from Musique Machine
