One of the year’s most unexpected doom metal albums is also now one of 2013’s most anticipated, as the debut LP from Pacific Northwestern trio LUMBAR is being prepared for arrival.

While this brutalizing slow-motion trio boasts what some are referring to as “supergroup” status — containing members Aaron Edge (HIMSA, IAMTHETHORN, ROARETH, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH), Mike Scheidt (YOB) and Tad Doyle (TAD, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH) — LUMBAR was formed by these longtime friends for much more than simply creating riffs. The brainchild of Aaron Edge, LUMBAR came together earlier this year when the well-known guitarist/drummer/graphic designer was unexpectedly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. What would be his final musical endeavor before waves of rapidly-spreading pain engulfed him and extended hospital stays became more than frequent, is now his most imperative.

On LUMBAR‘s debut album, “The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome”, Edge is joined by Mike Scheidt and Tad Doyle, the latter of whom also shares rank in BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH with Aaron, who helped bring this intense and important project to fruition. The musical result is as diverse and destructive as one may expect from such a lineup, with the varied influence from this trio of musicians coalescing into seven organic and tonally oppressive movements. Ethereal ghostly passages and spacious expanses of minimalistic disharmony cone to an end in sonic obliteration through mesmerizing and pulverizing, as an array of distinct vocal mantras echo from the heart of it all.

Southern Lord will release “The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome” on LP and digital formats on November 26, followed by a CD version direct from the band and a cassette version via Holy Mountain, with all of the band’s proceeds going to aid Edge‘s medical expenses and treatments.

The cover art for “The First And Last Days Of Unwelcome” was created by Daniel P. Carter (HEXES, KROKODIL, BLOODHOUND GANG).

Former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo has been confirmed for the Mad Monster Party Gras 2013 horror convention, set to take place September 13-15 at the Sheraton hotel in New Orleans. Anselmo will appear at the event on Saturday, September 14 only.

There are a limited number of discount rooms at the Sheraton, so act fast to guarantee the Mad Monster discount.

For more information, visit www.madmonsterpartygras.com.

As previously reported, Anselmo has joined forces with internationally renowned, best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell (“Hollywood Death Scenes”, “Dead And Buried”) to create Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival, the ultimate underground, three-day horror and heavy metal fan event that will combine live concerts from some of the biggest bands in metal and hard rock with more than 70 screenings of horror, true crime, and heavy metal films, music videos, and more — and special guest appearances from three of the world’s most revered underground directors of horror.

The Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival will take over the entire Emo’s complex in the newly revitalized area of Austin, Texas for three days at the end of October.

The nefarious brainchild of Anselmo and Mitchell, the Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival spawned from a mutual love for all things horror that was discovered while the two were collaborating on Anselmo‘s upcoming autobiography (Simon & Schuster, 2014). Wanting to bring their passion for — and knowledge of — extreme music and horror films to legions of fans, Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival was born, with the goal of showcasing the best in a wide range of horror films — from the obscure to the extreme, from quality mainstream to the most unrepentant gore — and the heavy music that goes hand-in-hand with it.
