FALLS OF RAUROS (Maine)
“Falls of Rauros is the kind of band that would sound just as great by the campfire as they would traversing a train change at Times Square; epic black metal with touches of starry-eyed post-rock that comes crashing down into heavy, badass riffs. In the age of 100 bands worshipping at the altar of Weakling, it’s cool to hear one that actually fucking rips for chrissakes. Check out all of the new LP Believe in No Coming Shore below and look for it on Bindrune.” – Noisey

KRIGSGRAV (Texas)
Krigsgrav is the decade-long project of Fort Worth multi-instrumentalist David Sikora devoted to exploring raw and uncompromising sounds with resplendent melodicism, spanning black metal, shoe-gaze, post-rock, and folk. They’ve recently signed to Bindrune Recordings (becoming labelmates of Falls of Rauros), and will release their new album, Waves of Degradation this spring.


Giant of the Mountain

GIANT OF THE MOUNTAIN (Texas)
Dallas’ Giant of the Mountain deliver a crushing amalgam of blackened progressive death metal entirely of their own creation. Their eclectic influences shine through shredding solos, heavy low-end, technical complexity, and atmospheric waves of doom and death.


ada

ADA [formerly Butcher Boy] (Maine)
Portland purveyors of all-things-avant, Ada (formerly Butcher Boy) are one of the northeast’s most ineffable and alluring bands with a sound that takes cues from gothic Americana, doom, free jazz, and post-rock, along with a sonic trademark and lyricism that is uniquely their own. Their highly anticipated follow-up to 2014’s Rhubarb was recorded in Montreal with Efrim Menuck of Godspeed You Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion, and is due out this year.
