RUSSIAN CIRCLES (US) RETURN WITH GUESTS EAGLE TWIN (US)

Posted in news on September 28, 2012 by heathenskulls

The tour has officially started – Tickets are selling FAST!
Eagle Twin play a headline show at Northcote Social Club (Melbourne) this Tuesday 2nd of Oct!

After unleashing their monumental sounds to packed houses across the country last year, experimental metal outfit RUSSIAN CIRCLES are back on our shores this September and are bringing Utah duo EAGLE TWIN along for the ride.

Hailing from the windy city of Chicago, RUSSIAN CIRCLES have been making their mark on the international underground since 2004. Starting with their self tiled, self released debut EP, Russian Circles have gone onto critical acclaim by recording numerous singles and split releases, not to mention three full length albums. Their latest offering “Empros” is their fourth and heaviest album to date. Australian audiences, prepare your ears for a serious load of fresh and heavy discordant metal.

Although EAGLE TWIN is a new entity, its helmsman Gentry Densley is no stranger to innovative, heavy music. Densley was the musical visionary and leader of the legendary Jazz, Prog, Rock, Metal, Hardcore group Iceburn from 1991-2001. In order to disseminate his majestic and mountainous riffs in the present day, he enlisted massively behemoth skinsman Tyler Smith. The two have come together with a love of all things heavy. Its doom/blues/roots/rock backing a new mythology of epic, old testament proportions. This will be their second visit down under, the duo have a new album on the way also.

Heathen Skulls are proud to present Chicago’s RUSSIAN CIRCLES in their second showing on Australian soil with special guests, EAGLE TWIN. They tour nationally this September through to October, see venues for more details.

EARTH – Sept NZ/Australian tour – Starts this week!

Posted in news on September 5, 2012 by heathenskulls

Heathen Skulls are proud to present Seattle drone doom outfit EARTH in their very first performances on our shores this September.

Earth formed in 1990 and led by guitarist Dylan Carlson. Mostly instrumental, their early work grew out of the Seattle area grunge scene and is recognized as pioneering the genre of drone doom — an experimental offshoot of doom metal, characterised by droning, minimalist, lengthy and repetitive structures.

Their early albums could be seen as a variation of the experimental doom-influenced metal of The Melvins. They now feature a markedly different sound, slow-paced and lengthy featuring strong elements of country music and jazz and the addition of a drummer.

Released earlier this year, “Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II” is ultimately a completely unanticipated direction for Earth, and a very welcome one at that. Well respected by their musical peers, Earth were invited by Portishead to be apart of their curated ATP festival in 2011 and were subsequently asked to perform at ATP 2012, curated by Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel).

Earth are heartfelt, haunting and deliver slow moving music that stretches into other worlds. Don’t miss your chance to see them in their first Australian tour this September. Special guests to be announced.
