In additional news, the post rock metal band recently unleashed a new lyric video ‘RIP Bill Hicks’ from their debut EP ‘Timeless, Ageless’ produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, H2O, American Nightmare, Polar Bear Club).

Lyric Video – RIP Bill Hicks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVGAWd57KFs

disparager -

Vocalist / guitarist Chris Ahkao comments:
“R.I.P. Bill Hicks is about letting go of something that is wrong for you, even if the act of letting go, the decision to let go, and everything leading up to that decision is hard.  Comfort and familiarity are nice, but allowing those feelings to steer your life treads dangerously close to living in fear.  Our days are precious and few and we must decide what is worth our time.”

Show Dates:

DISPARAGER CANCELLED ON SHOW - July 27 @ The Acheron – Brooklyn, NY w/ Blackest,  Warm, Dead Empires

Formed just last year, DISPARAGER has always had the crazy notion that music is art and that art is never a means to an end but an end in itself. As an extension of frontman Chris AhKao regaining his life from personal demons, this debut EP is a testament to that. Bursting with dense rawness and precision while pushing the boundaries of metal with tracks like “At Least I Still Have Bon Iver” – half folk song, half crushing mix of Isis and Slayer – and “Pictures” – a time signature mindfuck the band is proud NOT to call prog rock. The music is meant to showcase a refusal to settle, to compromise, to live any other life than that inspired by unwavering intent, self-expression and integrity.

“A collision of soul-scorching hard rock with speed-fueled thrash metal. This is music that’s loud, dirty, raw, and played at a breakneck pace. Just think Motorhead crashing head-on with Slayer.”- Exclaim Magazine

The minute I pushed play and the first song Before The Devil Knows I’m Dead started… the very first thing that came to my mind was the southern hillbilly Thrash Rockin sound of the awesome opening song of Nashville Pussy‘s High As Hell album Struttin’ Cock… it has the same sense of party rockin’ the same nonchalence, i’m going to borrow the words that the greatLester Bangs once used to describe The Guess Who… ¨They have the courage to be drunken baffoons which makes them poetic¨ and that just describes these guys so well!!! ” The Blood Shed

 “Hide your daughters, hide your wives, The Rough Boys are coming to town and they aren’t discreet!”” – Uysfaber.com

 “…great  sounding  mixture  of  thrash  and  punk  rock  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.”- Extreme Underground Music Zine

Japetus EP - photo band

Gatineau, QC death, doom and sludge duo NORILSK consisting of Nicolas Miquelon (Damnus, The Great Russian Empire, ex-Kintra) and Nick Richer (Damnus, Doll, Outrage AD) are proud to announce the release of their debut EP ‘Japetus’out today on July 22nd, which is available digitally as a pay what you want plus physically on limited edition CDs (only 100 printed).

Nicolas Miquelon (Bass, Guitar and Vocals) comments:

“Releasing the first EP of a new band always feels great; and it is particularly true with this one. Coming from a region where doom is slowly blooming on the metal horizon, Norilsk is for us like a different kind of seed springing out of the underground. Reactions to the songs have been very positive and we couldn’t be happier about the comments we received thus far.

From the huge sound to the clean layout and the simple vinyl looking packaging, we decided to press a very limited number of CDs, 100 to be precise, while making the digital version available on a pay-what-you-want basis. As records collectors, we like to think, aside from the quantity, that the exclusive Voivod cover gives the CD a rareness quality for fans to enjoy.

From the dramatic black and white 19th-Century photo of an ice shove in the port of Montreal to the duality of languages (French / English) and the frontier city where this band comes from (Gatineau QC / Ottawa ON), the whole EP has an underlying layer of contrasts under its weighty doom embrace.

Japetus is a good representation of what Norilsk is about: slow minimalistic death-doom metal with a few unorthodox elements, tainted in sludge. It doesn’t get any closer to what the future holds for this band—and like a harbinger of things to come, there are strong links between this CD and the upcoming full length.”

About:

Named after Siberia’s most northern city, NORILSK draws their inspirations and themes from Northern identity, isolation, and world demise. Incorporating elements of sludge and post-metal along with influences from doom-death metal bands such as Thergothon, Saturnus, and early My Dying Bride, the band is sharing with metal fans a taste of what’s to come in their debut EP ‘Japetus’.

Presented in a very limited CD edition and digital format, the ‘Japetus’ EP is both an introduction to the band and a teaser to future recordings. Clocking just under 20-minutes, the EP includes the title track ‘Japetus’, which will be on the band’s later planned full length album and also features one alternate version of ‘Potsdam Glo’along with a cover of Voivod‘s song ‘Negatron’, which is exclusively available on the CD.

    Six piece punk rock cabaret, The New Jacobin Club, are a must see, bucket list band. Their unbelievable gothic freak show performance, theatrical storylines, and multi-instrumentals (cello, theremin, keyboard, etc.) are a rare occurrence for the flat lands of Saskatchewan. They are not a stranger to the Canadian Music scene as they have been a staple for nearly 20 years. With plans to release their ninth album titled ‘Soldiers of the Mark’NJC have been keeping tabs on their progress.

The official release date for ‘Soldiers of the Mark’ is September 2, 2014 with the band now streaming the first single ‘Champagne Ivy’ at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8blkV_xMdI

new jacobin club - champagne ivy (2014)

“This album represents for us a benchmark of maturity and collaboration. “Champagne Ivy” was the first song I started working on after we finished our “Acts of Treason” tour in 2010 and it’s a blast to hear how the band’s newest members 5 years ago have today become such an integral part of the NJC sound and style. Luminous and Candi both shine on this track with the electric cello leads and rich backing vocals. It’s the colourful and elegant live sound we’ve been working on for 4 years finally captured it in the studio. It’s also one of the 3 free songs we’re giving away to new fans joining our online community! You can sign up right at newjacobinclub.com.” comments The Horde

The album will be for sale through Itunes, and can be pre-order via the bands bandcamp and website www.newjacobinclub.com 

In addition, NJC are offering fans a very special and limited edition ‘Soldiers of The Mark’ hardcover coffee-table format lyric book with the release of the album. It will be a joint effort with Calgary, AB based RunRabbit Entertainment. RunRabbit is notable for their independent short films (“Lilith” premiered at the 2013 Calgary Horrorcon and featured music by the New Jacobin Club prominently in the soundtrack) as well as their dark and provocatively themed photography. The book will contain not only the complete lyrics to the album, but an introduction, brief commentary written by band members and entourage, and full album credits. Contributing visual artists include Jess Thamnos (responsible for the iconic and menacing album cover ), Kathryn Trembach (band photographer) and Candice Grosenick (graphic artist behind the band’s concert posters and merchandise).

Biography:

Outcasts among wise men and fools alike, the New Jacobin Club is a fiendish group of musicians, poets, painters and performance artists who have been entertaining and provoking since the mid 1990’s. Combining seedy bohemian stage theatrics with bombastic art rock anthems has given the long lived ensemble a shocking and original edge that has attracted as much heated controversy as it has fiercely loyal fans.

Beginning as a power trio based in the Western Canadian city of Saskatoon, the New Jacobin Club signed to U.S. indie label Transparent Records in 1998 and released “A Lesson in Mortality”.   In 2003 “Retake the Throne,” their second full length album, became a minor Canadian college radio hit, creeping on to the national top 100 chart by the year’s end. By 2009, the NJC had become infamous for their provocative live show featuring unsettling freakshow stunts and what would become signature pyro tricks such as “exploding” cymbals and lighting microphone stands on fire. They released the epic gothic rock-opera “This Treason” the following year accompanied with “Inside the Cannibal Circus,” a DVD complete with concept video, live concert and candid documentary style footage. The double disc set was met with even more college radio success and sparked strong opinions from critics in Canada and worldwide.

The group is led by founding father and roaring frontman Xerxes Praetorius Horde (“The Horde” to his allies), singing opposite Poison Candi (theremin, percussion, vocals) and backed by The Luminous (electric cello),The Ruin (bass), The Rat King (drums) and Mistress Nagini (backing vocals, synth) . On stage the band is often joined by a colorful cast of collaboraters including performance artists Firecrotch Jones, Raunchy Rabies, Rima the Birdgirl, and drummer/programmer Eclipse.

Described as “Fiery and imposing while still retaining a degree of intelligence and fore-thought” (Exclaim! Canada’s independent music authority), “Energizing and engaging” (PureGrain Audio, USA) and “a gloriously black exercise in dark psychedelia” (BCFM Sunday Rock Show Review, UK), the New Jacobin Club never tire of dancing on genre boundaries with nods to classic goth, 70’s rock, power metal, blues, somber folk and even a hint of danceable industrial funk. The NJC has shared the stage with KMFDM, Voltaire, the Groovie Ghoulies, Nashville Pussy, the Nekromantix and countless others. Their signature vocal hooks and riffs have propelled them onto local and national Canadian independant radio charts, several movie soundtracks and even their own cable televised acoustic special.

Now in 2014, the band returns with their next shocker ‘Soldiers of The Mark’ due out on September 2nd as a self-release sure to make your ears cringe with its ten tracks of insanity. Along with this release, NJC are offering fans a very special and limited edition “Soldiers of the Mark” hardcover coffee-table format lyric book. It will be a joint effort with Calgary, AB based RunRabbit Entertainment. RunRabbit is notable for their independent short films (“Lilith” premiered at the 2013 Calgary Horrorcon and featured music by the New Jacobin Club prominently in the soundtrack) as well as their dark and provocatively themed photography. The book will contain not only the complete lyrics to the album, but an introduction, brief commentary written by band members and entourage, and full album credits. Contributing visual artists include Jess Thamnos (responsible for the iconic and menacing album cover ), Kathryn Trembach (band photographer) and Candice Grosenick (graphic artist behind the band’s concert posters and merchandise).

First editions of the book will be available by pre-order only and will include a special digital album download featuring the regular 10 song album plus 8 more bonus tracks. The deluxe 18 track version of the album will only be available directly from newjacobinclub.com and with the limited edition book.
