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

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 AND LABELS: 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 a download link for your EPs or albums. Please do NOT just send us a download link without also giving us a link to a place where at least something from the release can be streamed. It takes too long and too much hard-drive space to download everything before we get a chance to sample the music and get an idea whether it’s something we might want to recommend to others. It is not necessary to go to the expense of sending us physical editions of your releases.

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).

Please also be aware that in most instances we will not answer your e-mails. It’s not that we think we’re too important to be courteous, but we get literally hundreds of e-mails a day, and if we responded to all of them, there wouldn’t be enough time left to create new posts for this blog every day.

Happy trails.

  21. “Shallow Towers” by CAPA (Ivory Antler Records) has just recently been released and has been almost 4 years in the making. The Philadelphia-based band’s EP is conceptually driven and ties into CAPA’s previous release, “The Road is a Grey Tape”. Shallow Towers contains elements of black metal, post-metal, ambient music, shoegaze, progressive metal, with elements of surrealism. Lyrical and conceptual themes focus on the topics of nihilism, greed, surrealism, and the relationship between society and the natural world.

    “…Incredibly visual… both dark and uplifting.”
    -Ivory Antler

    “…unabashedly personal… A welcome change to today’s flooded black metal scene and memorable down to the last note.”
    -georgewbushisawarcriminal blog

    “engaging even after several plays as there is something to find each time.”
    – Manhattan’s Quad Newspaper

    “The atmosphere this record creates is quite matured”

    “This one man bedroom effort has transformed itself into a multi-room black metal production with various musicians and a vast scope to what will fit into a record.”
    -Tape Wyrm XVII

    Shallow Towers is available for free in its entirety on these sites.

    Anyway, it would be an honor if you chose to post this album. 

    Thanks so much,
