GLOBE AND BEAST on Cvlt Nation

Cvlt Nation presents the premiere of Globe and Beast's "Hand of Glory", a song off the San Diego band's debut album, Grandfather's Axe.

Decibel Magazine has described Globe and Beast as "noisy, sinewy, mathy, violent, metallic hardcore with heart and soul, wrapped in tire irons and dipped in battery acid." Anthemic yet shrouded in gloom, Globe and Beast's sound marries the frontal assault of bands like Buried Alive with the spiraling depression of Kiss It Goodbye.

Grandfather's Axe was recorded by Alex Estrada at The Earth Capital (Touche Amore, Xibalba) and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering (Crazy Spirit, Perdition). The album sees an April 23 release on Melotov Records (Ghostlimb, The Banner) and can be pre-ordered now at this location.

PRISTINA video

Pristina's video for the song "The Immoralist", off the band's second album, Hopeless•Godless, has premiered today on MetalInjection.

The song itself premiered recently on InvisibleOranges, along with these words: "Pristina floats in the grey space between metalcore, sludge, and noise rock... Strewn across the landscape of anger and self-loathing are moments of clarity and even sensitivity. Today Is The Day, whose Steve Austin recorded Pristina's previous album, comes to mind."

Pristina's brand of metallic hardcore - equally punishing and fragile - has earned repeated comparisons to Today Is The Day, as well as Bloodlet and Starkweather. A review in Decibel Magazine once stated, "For all its supposed edginess, heavy music rarely dares touch 'the long, dark night of the soul'. [Pristina] dives headfirst into it."

Hopeless•Godless is available now digitally via The Path Less Traveled Records.
