You can contact us about anything your little black hearts desire at:

islander@nocleansinging.com

If you’d like to get alerts when we post new blogs, you can subscribe to our RSS feed via the link on our home page, or by following us on our Facebook page which you can find here. We post a status on Facebook every time we add a new post to this site, with a link to the NCS posts.  We also have a Myspace page, but that baby is as dead as MySpace itself, so don’t bother with it.

SPECIAL NOTE TO BANDS: Feel free to contact us about your music. If you’re interested in having us feature or review what you’re doing, please provide a link to a place where songs can be streamed and/or e-mail us a download link for your EPs or albums.

Please be aware that we may or may not write about your music, even if you send us CDs or download links. Even if we really like what you’re doing, we just don’t have enough time to write about every band we like; the selection turns out to be pretty random. We wish it were otherwise, but that’s just the fact. So, don’t think we’re ignoring you or hate your music just because you don’t see something on the site about your band.

Also, because the process IS very random and impulsive, sometimes a couple of months may go by after you send us the music before we write about it, and sometimes you might see something the very next day (and sometimes there will be nothing at all, ever).

Happy trails.

    Galgamex is a four piece manic death metal band from Vancouver, B.C. Love to hear what you think of our new EP. Cheers!

  2. Rick says:

    Hey dudes! Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought I read somewhere this site was named in part because of Myke Terry replacing Mat in Bury Your Dead and that immediately caught my eye. BYD is quite possibly my favorite band and I was horrified when they brought Myke in. I was stoked when they brought back Mat but now it seems they just fell right off the face of the Earth. ANYWAY I got a band that just released our full album for free and we’d love for you guys to do a review of it and can even host the free link if you want. We took a lot of influence from Bury Your Dead as far as their energetic and aggressive presence and breakdown oriented structure and tried combining it with the sound of bands like First Blood, Lionheart, and Hatebreed. You can get our album here: http://www.mediafire.com/?ny56fdp7z48e5ne Let us know what you think. Thanks!

    What’s up, man? I may have sent you a link through the e-mail, but I can’t remember. I am in a doom band from Austin, TX called Destroyer of Light. We got some good things on the way like touring New Zealand and Australia in March, music videos, and etc. Plus, we just played with Witch Mountain and Castle! Of course we are always looking for more exposure, here is our EP on bandcamp:http://destroyeroflight.bandcamp.com/album/destroyer-of-light. Check it out and see what you think. Keep up the good work. Cheers! – Steve

    hey,islander,
    my name is dave,i lurk on you guys all the time.you may remember me as the guy who can’t read the red links very well,a comment i tried to post which likely failed,as i suck at the internet and am an abysmal typist.love the site,thank you.i wonder if you have heard anything lately about ulver and how the app they are using has worked for others.i have burned many hours trying to buy cds direct from them,and am about at wits end.i would really like to give ‘em my money,but cant get any play.jester records’ site doesn’t seem to function either.it seems i will have to settle for mp3s,so iwonder if the app is the way to go.
    thanks for your time, and all the tunes
    dh

    • Islander says:

      I;m afraid I don’t know anything about the Ulver app and haven’t heard anything about it either. As far as I can tell, Ulver isn’t selling anything physical at the moment — it’s all mp3 downloads from their own shop or their Bandcamp page. I did find Ulver CDs available at Amazon, but don’t know where that money goes.

      • dave says:

        thanks ,man.mp3 it is.i do hope ulver continues to create.
        BTW,i just found a van.,b.c. band called anciients you should check out.though you’ve prolly had beers with’em.

    Drawing on a diversity of influences, Synsophony are not scared to betray their love of music of all types – from metal to electronica to classical – in an effort to make music that is as psychedelic as it is terrifying. Stick on your headphones, crank up the bass and volume, and enjoy!

    They already released an EP (Day in Black) a few year ago when they were around 17y.o. back then and which can be downloaded for free here: http://amoeba-band.fr/en/#/merch/

    They just released a trailer for their upcoming album “Counterweight”, recorded at the 16th cellar studio (Hour of Penance, Fleshgop Apocalypse…) and they are currently looking for a label for this one.

    The trailer can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=x_x5t5sX898

  22. JJ says:

    Hi Islander, I know you’re a fan of Blood & Thunder and will probably be at the Highline Thursday but if you get a chance to wander down to the Comet earlier in the evening our new Doom/Sludge act Portents will be opening for Beneath Oblivion (who are amazing) around 9:30. I’ve been an avid reader of NCS since way before I even moved to Seattle, and would love to know what you think! If not hopefully some other time, I hate when there’s competing metal shows on the same night but at least they’re geographically close together ;p

    http://portentsdoom.bandcamp.com/

    • Islander says:

      I’ve got your show on our Calendar page and I’m hoping I can start the night there and finish at Highline. Unfortunately I’m having to leave town for my day job tomorrow and the flight doesn’t get back to Sea-Tac until 6:30. Hope there will still be enough time to make it there before you start.

  23. SPLIFF says:

    I NEED to get in contact with Lilitu or whatever incarnation they might be. I toured with them on IEMF and think they have a shot under the right representation. I don’t know if they read this. Please, please, please get me back in touch. I’m SPLIFF from IEMF. Let them know I need their info. I’m at cliff.morris212@gmail

  34. T’was the year 2008, when a nameless death metal band was founded. Years went by and many musicians tried their luck without success, until 2012 the band now called Cauldron of Hate ended up with its final members:

    Matti “Murder” Santavuori - Bass, growl
    Jaakko “Exhaust” Santavuori - Solo guitar, growl
    Antti “Chemist” Kemppainen - Drums
    Mikko “Organ(ic) Butcher” Kemppainen - Rhythm guitar, backing vocals

    As time went by the band developed its musical genre from thrash/death metal into VERY aggressive technical death metal.
    The band started gigging in may 2013, when we literally filled the stage (3×3 meters or 9×9 foot) at Horror-Shop, Helsinki, which both members of the audience liked. In june of the same year
    we blew open some heads in mini- TUSKA festival (=PAIN / AGONY / TORTURE) by playing a gig in Horror-Shop with the indonesian grindcore band NOXA.

    After the first demo (Cauldron of Hate – Demo(n) 2013) we decided to pay a little bit more than a case of beer for studio, so in september 2013 we went to D-Studio in klaukkala, finland to have a
    crazed-out, all-in drinking contest. We also made a badass EP-album:

    Inquisition (EP) includes three (3) aggressive, instrument ramming blasts:

    1. Inquisition
    2. Crematory ritual
    3. Suffer under my Reign

    We will continue to rip entrails, torture eardrums, spread misery and chaos in the future. Resistance is futile.

  35. Brian says:

    Hey guys, I’ve got this melodic death metal band that just finished recording an album. We’re looking at options for putting it out and I wanted to see if anyone here knows someone with a label looking for badass death metal. I can email you more songs than the ones that are at our bandcamp link there.

  36. Brian says:

    Just wanted to let you guys know that all of your albums have been awesome and I don’t understand why you guys aren’t at the top of the charts. I have been a fan for many years now and I thought that the album fundamental component is one of the best metal albums around, look forward to hearing the new album.

  48. Labryse says:

    Bio:
    Forged within the shadowy depths of Northeast Portland basements, Labryse emerged in 2012 to bring forth metal unto the land. A band comprised of all queer and female musician their music mixes various elements of thrash, melodic and black metal, with a touch of hardcore. Comprised of lead guitarist Ash Juno Inferna (CatHole, Pasties and Paddles), guitarist/vocalist Juanes Collazo, bassist Kelly Duncan and drummer/vocalist Kat Endgame (Dear Sirs, Fight the Ground), Labryse fights to transform the demons which lurk in forgotten corners of the soul, into sound and fury.

    Check out Labryse’s new EP “Awaken the Sleeper: RoughCuts” released in support of their Indegogo Campaign here:

  49. Mike.Lusca says:

    Hey,

    surprise, another unsigned band sending you links!

    I won’t bother you with loads of useless info. LUSCA is a band from Germany that has been around for 10 years, features two people with bass guitars and a drum machine and if you don’t like Godflesh and/or Neurosis you can stop reading here.

    The above link features our latest 2011 effort Exodus, but a new one is almost finished. So this is as gooda time as any to do some advertising. Give the first few tracks a spin and if you like what we do get in touch. I’ll be happy to send you shirts, CDs, info or any other material that is helpful for a review.

    I hope I don’t take up too much of your time! NCS is a good site and I enjoy your reviews a lot.
