The Black Dahlia Murder, Revocation, Etc. Members To Guest On New Nitesoil EP

Nitesoil, the project launched by Frank Godla (Meek Is Murder, Enabler) and Nick Emde (Contracult Collective, White Widows Pact), will be releasing their debut EP “Abusement Park” on November 6. The effort can be pre-ordered HERE and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Cancer Research Institute.

“Abusement Park” Track Listing:

01. “Odio” (feat. Jessica Pimentel of Brujeria/Alekhine’s Gun)
02. “The Extinction Gene” (feat. Dave Davidson of Revocation/Gargoyl)
03. “Burn Me Down” (feat. Aaron Heinold of Hivesmasher)

05. “Mother Of Lust” (feat. Gost)
06. “D.S.I.T.S.” (feat. Doug Moore of Pyrrhon)

Godla commented:

“We started this band as a joke we thought no one would hear; a folder of sick riffs from Nick titled “Slammy Sosa”. Once I spent weeks rearranging and tracking grooves, black mailing some killer death metal vocalists to come over to my house and participate, and kidnapping one of the sickest engineers in the game to mix and master this shit in order to be released…we’re still a joke. But at least it sounds legit, and it’s all for charity you chumps!”

The first single, “Burn Me Down” (feat. Aaron Heinold), can be found below:

Gargoyl (Revocation, Etc.) Premiere “Plastic Nothing” Video

Gargoyl (Revocation, Ayahuasca) have premiered a new video for their new song “Plastic Nothing.” This track is from the band’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on October 9.

Luke Roberts commented:

“Why am I so afraid that my body, my possessions, and even my mind are in a state of constant dissolution? Why am I so afraid of the idea that every atom in my body came from dirt and will soon return?

Maybe the tighter I hang on to being a person, being permanent, secure, the more I suffer. Maybe the tighter i hang onto the idea of a perfect world the faster it burns. Fear is like a bully that offers you protection in exchange for obedience.

Perhaps if I hang on less tightly, the sum of my short fleeting life could mean something more than just living in a constant state of fear right up until my inevitable death bed.”

Gargoyl (Revocation, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Wraith”

Gargoyl (Revocation, Ayahuasca) have premiered a new song titled “Wraith.” This track is from the band’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on October 9.

Dave Davidson commented:

“A big part of the impetus to form Gargoyl was to have a vehicle for our different influences so this track will give listeners a taste of the diverse moods this album has to offer. ‘Wraith‘ showcases a different side of my playing and compositional style that people are normally associated with. I had part of the music written for this piece for quite sometime, but it really came to life for me when I heard Luke‘s haunting vocal melodies and lyrics. I hope you find this track eerily beautiful as well.”

Luke Roberts added:

“In the first world, there’s a paradigm that ‘one day I’ll be gone so I might as well just look out for me while I’m here.’ “But imagine in death, in some form, you were still cognizant, trapped in the concrete and power lines of the city you live in, forced to watch the sum of everything you set in motion in your life unfold. Forced to watch your predecessors crawl through the legacy you left in your wake, desperately clinging to the pursuit of happiness in an unravelling world.

If this was your fate, would then how you live and how you treat everyone and everything around you not become of dire importance?”

Gargoyl (Revocation, Ayahuasca) have premiered a new song titled “Electrical Sickness.” This track is from the band’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on October 9. Luke Roberts commented:

“This song is not meant to be a pleasant experience. There’s a background static of anxiety and depression that seems to linger everywhere in our society. I would like to suggest it’s time we look at these feelings in ourselves and take responsibility for them instead of taking them out on each other or trying to hide from them in all of our distractions.”

02. “Plastic Nothing”

04. “Electrical Sickness”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Gargoyl (Revocation, Ayahuasca) Release Debut EP

Gargoyl, the band featuring Dave Davidson (Revocation), Luke Roberts (Ayahuasca), and Josh Park (Ayahuasca), have released their debut EP “Asomatous.” You can stream that below. Davidson commented:

“It was hard to choose the songs to put on this EP since Gargoyl has been evolving from the beginning, but I think these two tracks are a good representation of the diversity of our sound. The music is raw, emotional and hopefully thought-provoking, and we hope you enjoy this free EP and spread the gospel of Gargoyl as we prepare to finish up writing for our full-length record.”
