Swans, The Seer
2012 | Label: Young God Records / Virtual

Whether he’s conjuring up a quiet storm with an acoustic guitar or sharing the asphyxiated psalms of “Sex, God, Sex,” Michael Gira has never been the subtle type. That’s especially the case with the second coming of Gira’s iconic post-punk band Swans, which obliterated the notion of a cash-grab reunion with a series of resoundingly LOUD shows, and 2010′s uniformly excellent, AARP-be-damned album My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky.

Who Are…Tombs

By Joe Gross, Contributor

Mike Hill is old school. The 42-year old Hudson Valley native has been in bands for decades, from the Boston/NYC metalcore act Anodyne, which ripped off faces from 1997-2005, to the post-metallic Versoma to Tombs, which Hill assembled in 2008. Their second album for Relapse Records, Path of Totality, melts together three decades of metal, punk and Goth rock into a single, flailing roar.
