Only one and a half years after releasing its debut, tomorrow on October 9th, 2020, the Berlin-based doom metal collective, NEÀNDER will release their sophomore album, entitled ‘eremit,‘ on Through Love Records.

The ‘eremit‘ album is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed, self-titled debut full-length [link] in early 2019, that was a true monument to heavy music. The band also released a substantial single ‘mãlven‘ in September 2019, which at nearly 11 minutes is most assuredly worth mentioning.

NEÀNDER recently unleashed the second single taken from ‘eremit‘ – the album’s closing track, “Atlas.” The song is an epic voyage and another perfect example of why this band is beginning to make waves in the underground metal circuit.

With all the ups and downs – within rhythm and chord progression – breaks and mood changes; it might be the most experimental song of the album.” says guitarist Jan Korbach. “I really like this fact because the track may lead into our future as an artist. The song has to be perceived as one with ‘Clivina’ (the song that leads towards ‘Atlas’). With over 14 minutes this is also our longest track (until now). It’s truly a marathon, not a sprint.”

The instrumental heavy weights, who formed in 2017, feature members of blackgazers Ånd, hardcore punks Patsy O’ Hara, Berlin sludgers Earth Ship, and live band musicians from indie outfit Casper. The band cuts a dark and desolately bleak crystal playing with variations of light and shade. With their upcoming magnum opus, NEÀNDER continue to evolve their very own blend of heavy music that draws on musical elements of doom, ambient and black metal.

The ‘eremit‘ album was produced and mixed by Jan Oberg (Earth Ship / Grin) at the Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin, Germany, and the drums were recorded by Kadavar’s Christoph Bartelt. The album was mastered by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna, who reveals:

“It was pure joy working on this very powerful and yet dynamic album trying to get the music forward in the most flattering way. Highly recommended album!”


I Purpur (prelude)
II Purpur
III Eremit
IV Ora
V Clivina
VI Atlas

eremit‘ is slated for a release on October 9th via Through Love Records and will be available on Vinyl, CD, and in Digital formats. You can order your copy of this must-have album of doom and blackened colossus HERE.

Elton John’s trippy 1968 Beatles rip-off makes us want a full psych-rock album from the Rocket Man

Listen to Regimental Sgt. Zippo, Elton John’s ‘affectionate nod’ to The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper




There’s a huge new Elton John box set coming in November, featuring previously unreleased tracks, early B-sides and a deep cuts chosen by the man himself. Featuring 60 previously unreleased tracks from 1967 – 1969, the years in which John’s songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin, iJewel Box promises to be a fascinating listen.

John has just released a taster of the set, in the form of the psychedelic Regimental Sgt. Zippo. The title track of an unreleased debut album, recorded and produced in May 1968 at the DJM studios, the same building that housed the Beatles’ publishing company, Northern Songs, the song is described as “an affectionate nod to Sgt Pepper and the era.”

The ultimate exploration into Elton John’s extensive back catalogue, Jewel Box features a number of rarities, and deep cuts discussed in John’s acclaimed 2019 memoir, Me. The eight discs come in a hardcover book, enclosed in an outer slipcase. Each section contains extensive notes and, for Deep Cuts, there is track-by-track commentary by the singer.

Elton says: ‘To delve back through every period of my career in such detail for Jewel Box has been an absolute pleasure. Hearing these long lost tracks again, I find it hard to comprehend just how prolific Bernie Taupin and I were during the early days. 

“The songs just poured out of us and the band were just unbelievable in the studio. I always want to push forward with everything I do and look to the future, but having time during lockdown to take stock and pull these moments from my memory from each era has been a joy. 

“As a devout record collector myself, this project has really excited me and I couldn’t be happier with the level of craft involved in such a carefully curated, lovingly constructed box set. I’m sure my fans will enjoy it as much as I have.”

Jewel Box is released via UMC/EMI on November 13.

David Crosby’s response to Eddie Van Halen’s death? “Meh”

CSN legend David Crosby’s reaction to the death of Eddie Van Halen prompts backlash from fans




When Eddie Van Halen died last week at the age of 65, the tributes began pouring in. From Jimmy Page and Richie Blackmore to Eddie’s former bandmates Dave Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, everyone was united in their admiration for the man who revolutionised the electric guitar,

Everyone except David Crosby, that is.

When the former Crosby, Stills & Nash man was asked by fan on Twitter, what he thought about the guitarist, he dismissed the question with a one-word reply: “Meh.”

The backlash was swift, with several fans and musicians calling Crosby out for his apparent lack of respect.

LA Guns guitarist Tracii Guns responded: “Wrong answer as f**k and rude as f**k!!! There are better ways to say you don’t care for someone’s music. That was very disrespectful. And yes straight out f**k you and your smug answer.”

Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick added: “I appreciate @thedavidcrosby too much for this to get in the way, but a much better answer would have been: ‘I know he meant a lot to so many but his sound & style just weren’t my thing.’”

Seemingly aware that he’d prodded a hornets’ nest, Crosby attempted to clarify his positon.

“Hendrix changed the world of guitar,” he wrote. “Nobody else really …look I get it… many of you loved Van Halen… and the one time I met he was nice… and he was talented… meh to me means I don’t care that much… and I don’t… doesn’t mean he wasn’t good ,he was but not for me.”

Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider wasn’t pacified, tweeting: “Now David Crosby knows what his eulogy will be from the 100s of millions of fans worldwide (and it’s getting close) – “Today David Crosby died….Meh.”
