MOTHER ENGINE plays instrumental rock music influenced by the current stoner and post rock scenes, the psychedelic rock of the 60s/70s and the native krautrock scene. Founded in 2011 and follwing gigs at ‘Desertfest’, ‘Stoned from the Underground Festival’, or ’Keep it low Festival’, this 3-piece-band started to find their way into the German underground scene.

With the upcoming release of the second album "Absturz" the mothership is setting its course to the European stages!

"Absturz" available as strictly limited 2LP Gatefold Edition in “sky blue” on August 13th 2015 at the Napalm Records Online Store!

SHINING play live concert on deadly mountain top

This Sunday June 21st, on the solstice and longest day of the year, the Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining played a world’s first concert on top of a grandiose mountain structure hanging out 700 meters above the ground, called Trolltunga (“Troll’s Tongue”).

The band flew up a PA system and power generator, and blasted their patented Blackjazz music to a group of 300 fans and mountain hikers who had taken on the daunting task of walking the five hour trip to the mountain top.

Shining’s front man Jørgen Munkeby commented to Norwegian TV and news after the show: “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever been part of! First of all I’m happy that we’re all still alive! But I’m also happy that we got all the technical aspects of this to work, as it’s no easy task to plan a full rock and metal concert on top of a freaking mountain!”

Windhand Detail Upcoming Album "Grief's Infernal Flower"

Windhand "Grief's Infernal Flower" Out on Relapse Records September 18th

WINDHAND return with their third full-length, "Grief's Infernal Flower". The album was produced by Jack Endino (Nirvana, High On Fire, Soundgarden) and is a massive, heavy, personal and modern testament to the power of doom and stoner metal's legacies. One sees the urgency the band have displayed over their career reflected in their music - long-canonized tropes are reimagined and reinvented, Windhand convey an irrepressible sense of motion even within the slowest of songs.

Front woman Dorthia Cottrell firmly establishes herself as one of today's most powerful vocalists by perfectly balancing beauty with enormous force, and the twin-guitar attack of Garrett Morris and Asechiah Bogdan weaves together nine songs of perfect riffs and fuzzed-out bliss. That often-delicate splendor is all tempered by the colossal rhythmic mastery of bassist Parker Chandler and drummer Ryan Wolfe, whose lower-register expertise serves as the backbone of the new record. Though the first two WINDHAND albums were underground classics, Grief's Infernal Flower stands to see WINDHAND cementing themselves as one of the premier metal bands of our time.
