Hi, what are you looking for?


CVLT Nation Premiere:
AMBERSMOKE “The Great Nothing”

People sometimes make the assumption that all we listen to is heavy, heavier and heaviest music from dawn until dusk. The reality is that while we do get down with scathing sounds and audio annihilation, we also enjoy a subtler, gentler musical journey, like that of Ambersmoke. Their fuzzed out, smoky melodies lull us into a peaceful, meditative place after a long day of crushing riffs. So we’re very happy to be streaming their new album, The Great Nothing, in full below! The album is coming out digitally on April 9th via Social Stress and can be pre-ordered on cassette here!
