Chicago powerviolence kings WEEKEND NACHOS have announced a run of European dates this summer. Riding the success of last year’s punishingalbum Still, the boys will pack nine shows into nine days in a brutal conquest that’s sure to leave no survivors. The dates will include a stop at France’s Hellfest and includes dates with label mates, PRIMITIVE MAN.
Following a two-year release stretch since their bold self-titled debut LP was issued, Relapse Records this week unveils the release details on the highly-anticipated second LP from New York City-based morbid sludge metal executioners, SERPENTINE PATH.
Born from within the smoldering remains of Unearthly Trance in 2011, UT members, bassist Jay Newman, drummer Darren Verni and vocalist Ryan Lipynsky (The Howling Wind) recruited guitarist Tim Bagshaw (ex-Ramesses, ex-Electric Wizard) to complete the SERPENTINE PATH lineup. Their crushing, self-titled debut full-length was referred to as"thudding death-doom that will have genre enthusiasts rolling their stoned skulls in graveyard genuflection" by Revolver, and ”a contender for doom album of the year” by Decibel.
Now officially augmented by new second guitarist Stephen Flam, the mastermind behind NYC doom/death legends, Winter, SERPENTINE PATH brings forth their most demoralizing and anguish-filled slow-motion chaos yet, with the newly-completed Emanations. As with their first album,Emanations was recorded by the band’sJay Newman, after which it was honed to devastating perfection at Audiosiege, the album capturing forty-five minutes of true sludge punishment with seven brand new songs from this true underground all-star team. Sure, the pedigree is undeniable, but regardless of their “members of” status, SERPENTINE PATH is one of the most scathing sludge acts on the planet.
Emanations will see parole via Relapse May 27th, 2014 on CD, LP and digital formats. A new trailer featuring a sample of the audio, as well as the cover art by in-house Relapse artist Orion Landau and more has been released. View the trailer HERE, and place preorders for the album HERE.

"a hybrid of death metal, grindcore, and noise that channels The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cobalt, and even early God Forbid." - 4/5 Revolver
“a mix of intelligent hatred that could only come from the five boroughs.” - Noisey
"progressive death metal that mixes shiny technical skills with dank atmospherics." - Pitchfork
"Nux Vomica hit it out of the damn park…a goddamn crust metal masterpiece." -Decibel 8/10
“a masterful blend of melodic death metal, crust, doom, and dark atmospheric hardcore” - Noisey
“Hard-hitting metallic hardcore segments, strung together with lean, largely instrumental connective tissue — the muscle is real, but the vibe is dreamlike.” - Invisible Oranges

Washington grindblasters, THE DRIP, have delivered another dosage of their rampaging tactics with the release of "Siren."
Pulled from their impending Relapse debut, A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics, the two minutes and thirteen seconds of “Siren” are a relentless introduction to THE DRIP's violent effectiveness, the intensity of the high-speed grindcore intro matched only by the monolithic breakdown groove which follows, showcasing this band right in line behind their brutalizing predecessors, Misery Index,Nasum, Rotten Sound and the like.
