Stream And Destroy 12.23.22 // Weekly Roundup

Stream And Destroy is a weekly feature on D//E in which we round up tracks and releases we didn't cover canonically during the current week. It's complementary to our regular posts and publishes on Friday release day. Oddments from previous weeks may appear. The feature now comes with an accompanying playlist on Spotify.

The final Stream And Destroy installment of the year is here. The feature will resume in 2023, together with more new exciting things and pieces.


NYC-based dark duo A Cloud of Ravens have released the rich single Nature of Artifice from their impending album, Lost Hymns, due out in Spring 2023 via Nexilis Records / Schubert Music Europe). Jason Corbett of ACTORS did the mastering.





Jesus Piece sign with Century Media Records and release a new single and video, an acerbic piece of post hardcore tension. An Offering To The Night comes in collaboration with the clothing brand Noah.





Greg Anderson (Southern Lord Record, Sunn O))), Goatsnake) teams up with David Pajo on the new track Nazarite, as The Lord & David Pajo. It features the two musicians interacting over foreboding arpeggios and spoken word parts. Greg says: "I'm beyond honored to have been able to collaborate with David Pajo for this ever evolving output as The Lord. Slint remains one of the most important bands ever to me. I composed the music for Nazarite as a love letter to Slint that exemplifies my obsession and devotion. David's brilliant response to my humble offering is clear proof of his genius."





Boris say that fade, their third album in 2022, is “…not bound by concepts of rock and music in general, but could rather be said to be a documentary of the world plunged into the chaotic age of boris moving forward. Break into the present, post-pandemic era. Memories of the world wrapped in disorder and uncertainty already bring feelings of nostalgia. Every individual was cut off from society, but now have returned as one. Among that disorder like a primitive scenery, did you have fear? Did you doze off? Or in an extreme state of mind, did you even feel some comfort in the solitude? Among that disorder, did you make eye contact with yourself, or did you not experience such a moment? Now, wrapped in a thunderous roar, your whole body will be caressed on the way to awakening. Morning comes.





Host, the new project of Paradise Lost vocalist Nick Holmes and guitarist Greg Mackintosh, reveal more of their new material. "'Hiding From Tomorrow' was one of the first songs we wrote for the Host project and although the title would suggest otherwise, it was written a few years prior to the pandemic," Holmes comments. "With that in mind, I was thinking about the things that keep you awake at night, and although life is something that should never be taken for granted, uncertainty is a big part of it, and none of us know what’s around the corner."





The Men have announced their first album in three years, New York City. God Bless The USA, the band's follow-up to Hard Livin', is a raucous and acerbic new single off the album.





The Brian Jonestown Massacre return with their 20th album, The Future is Your Past, which will be released on February 10th, 2023 via Anton Newcombe's A Recordings label. The new record arrives just a little after Fire Doesn't Grow on Trees from earlier in 2022.





Lust for Youth, the Copenhagen synthpop staples, returned with their first new music in three years. An Accidental Win is an upbeat, dark and enchanting track, akin to the band's usual style.





pity / piety is the first new material by Jesu since the Terminus album from 2020, and it's composed of two quite lengthy track, clocking in at nearly 18 minutes each.





The heavy brand of post punk which UK band NAUT bring forward feels quite all-embracing. The band will release their new album, Hunt, on February 23rd, 2023 via Season of Mist. They comment on new song, Dissent: "The singles we have selected demonstrate different facets of the band and Dissent is a perfect track to highlight certain things we think are key to NAUT's sound. Dissent is Hunt's opener and one of its 'heaviest' offerings, thematically and musically. The video is stark and works as a lyric video of sorts, where key words and phrases are splashed up on screen like a dissenting voice speaking its truth, daubed across a bleak corporate wall."





Gearhead is the newest offering by Narrow Head, from the upcoming album Moments of Clarity, out February 10th, 2023 via Run For Cover Records and Church Road Records (UK). Frontman Jacob Duarte (also of Skourge, Sexpill) comments: “This is the type of song I’ve always wanted to write. A hardcore song with a catchy hook. If you ever wanted to describe our sound to someone; start with this song.





Dying of Everything is the title track of the upcoming album by Obituary, which is shaping up to be a perfectly fresh and edgy venture from the death metal veterans.
