Cymbals Eat Guitars Announce US Tour

“You could blame it on so many bands being from autophobic NYC, or that the Pacific Northwest gods of indie are still going too strong to already be a primary influence, but neither would explain New York’s Cymbals Eat Guitars’ Why There Are Mountains. While there’s plenty of geographical signifiers on their debut, it’s almost topographic in its approach, without hooks and choruses so much as map-like layouts of mountains and sloping valleys.” — Pitchfork [Best New Music]

“The most obvious thing​ about ​Cymbals Eat Guitars is that their ​epic, widescreen​ indie ​rock bears ​a striking resemblance to that of Built ​To Spill​ and early​ Modest Mouse​.” – Fluxblog

“Why There Are Mountains may be one of the best ‘indie’ (the album is self-released, so, y’know, actually ‘indie’) albums of the year. And with the major label skyline being obliterated like something out of Independence Day, it’s time to batten down the hatches.” – NME

“Staten Island quartet Cymbals Eat Guitars came out of seemingly nowhere when, a little under a month ago, their debut album, Why There Are Mountains, was bestowed Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” honor. Who were these guys? Staten Island, seriously? They were, of course, four hustling musicians who’d struck gold on the songwriting front, crafting a beastly, obtuse album that sounds a lot like Built To Spill, if Built To Spill actually had some youth on their side and could still throw down in a street fight or get upset over a girl.” – RCRD LBL

““The band’s sound is hugely ambitious, explosively energetic force of nature that is clearly influenced by a multitude of 90’s indie rock classics from Pavement to Built to Spill
to Modest Mouse while still achieving something that is forward-looking and unpredictable.” – MTVU

“I’ll be the first to go on record saying that Cymbals Eat Guitars/Joseph Ferocious will end up indie famous within the year.” – Charles Bissel, The Wrens

Aeternam reveals artwork, track listing for “Disciples Of The Unseen”; debut album available 2/16!

Quebec City’s Aeternam is gearing up to finally release their hotly anticipated debut album on February 16th, 2010! Disciples Of The Unseen is a 10 track foray into an atmospheric, aggressive, melodic and Egyptian-tinged death metal. The album was produced by mastermind JeF Fortin (Neuraxis, The Last Felony) and is for fans of Nile, Melechesh, Behemoth and even earlier Trivium – any metal head will definitely find something to sink their teeth into here. On top of the hook-laden guitar harmonies and solos are vocalist/guitarist Achraf Loudiy’s occasional clean vocal melodies; they provide a tasteful palate cleanser and provide an alternative for those who tire quickly from traditional death metal growls. This is particularly evident on the band’s first single, The Coronation Of Seth.

Fans can keep up with Aeternam on their myspace page: as well as twitter, youtube and facebook, all listed below.

Live footage from Aeternam’s show supporting Behemoth on June 29th of this year is currently up on their youtube page. The live track is Angel Horned and has one of the best guitar solos on the album!

Disciples Of The Unseen track listing:
1. Ars Almadel
2. Angel Horned
3. Esoteric Formulae
4. The Coronation Of Seth
5. Hamunaptra
6. Iteru
7. Goddess Of Masr
8. Ouroboros
9. Circle In Flames
10. Through The Eyes Of Ea
