TAURUS: Psychedelic Doom Duo Set To Unleash New Full-Length – Preorders Available; Band To Bring Their Audio Explorations Overseas

Press release from Earsplit PR;

Portland-based psychedelic doom/drone duo, TAURUS, featuring Stevie Floyd of Dark Castle and Ashley Spungin, formerly of Purple Rhinestone Eagle/Negative Queen, are pleasured to unveil the details of their forthcoming new full-length, No/Thing. Recorded to two-inch tape at Portland’s Cloud City Studios by iconic sound magus Billy Anderson, No/Thing was composed throughout the Summer of 2013 and delivers five frequently terrifying avant doomscapes set within a tranquil nightmare of awkward blackened death metal riff torrents. Featuring guest vocal infiltrations by Anderson and Leviathan’s Wrest, No/Thing is a spiritually godless journey in sound, mind and body.

No/Thing Track Listing (song titles flow together as a parable):
1. No Thing Longing… Human Impermanence
2. Lives Long For Own
3. Set Forth On The Path Of The Infinite
4. Increase Aloneness
5. Receed

All music was felt by:

Stevie Floyd – guitar, vocal, Hammond organ, ukulele
Ash Spungin – drums, vocals, synth, samples
Wrest (Leviathan) – vocals (track 5)
Billy Anderson – vocals (track 4), producer, engine ear

No/Thing will be released independently on April 1, 2014 via TAURUS’ official Bandcamp page and comes available in three options:

Record Box Set Option One:
– Wooden hand screen printed, stained and shellacked box with original Stevie Floyd art includes:
– No/Thing LP (colored vinyl), CD, download
– Life LP, CD, download (old record)
– 18” x 24” bleached black canvas tapestry/large backpatch
– lithograph lyric/art gold print on red linen paper

Record Box Set Option Two:
– Wooden hand screen printed, stained and shellacked box with original Stevie Floyd art includes:
– No/Thing LP (colored vinyl), CD, download
– 18” x 24” bleached black canvas tapestry/large backpatch
– lithograph lyric/art gold print on red linen paper

Record-Only Option Three:
– No/Thing LP (colored vinyl), CD, download
– lithograph lyric/art gold print on red linen paper

In related intelligence, TAURUS will bring their audio explorations overseas this Spring for a still-in-its-booking stages bout of live rituals which will include a special performance at the third annual Heavy Days In Doomtown festival in Copenhagen, Denmark. Further details to be announced in the coming weeks.

TAURUS defines rehearsed spontaneity; organized mathematical rhythms of the timeless organic. Their view, not of man but an abstraction. The abstract is real, the actual is invisible. It is their sense of space and time; seeing through the here and now, into the vast black deep beyond, the unchanging… Life is an interval. The cosmic process is hurrying on, crushing life back into granite and methane. The wheel constantly turns for all Life… yet all Life is temporary. All creating and recreating. Each movement so important. Each space equally as relevant. We are dust.

Preorder packages are currently available through http://taurusisdust.bandcamp.com. (All preorders come with an 18” x 24” black canvas tapestry/large backpatch.)

Mere info:
ESOTERIC (uk) – Season of Mist Records
esoteric.bandcamp.com

Hailing from Birmingham, United Kingdom, Esoteric has been delivering atmospheric and haunting hymns of Doom since 1992. With music so heavy, that it almost stops time itself, you are in for an experience of proportions. After their monumental 2011 album release of Paragon of Dissonance you better be prepared for a lifetime of nightmares brought by the sound of Esoteric!

PROCESSION (swe) – High Roller Records
www.facebook.com/pages/Procession/141525302533057

Formed in Chile (and now established in Sweden), Procession plays crushing heavy doom metal in the vein of Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Count Raven, Solstice, etc… since 2006. After 2 European tours and festivals like Doom Shall Rise, Hole In The Sky, Keep it True, Rock Hard, Hammer of Doom, HellsPleasure, Metal Magic, Up the Hammers, Muskelrock, among others… the band has now finished the recordings of their new LP “To Reap Heavens Apart” (High Roller Recs, Germany), the follow up to “Destroyers Of The Faith”, acclaimed by several magazines as the “doom metal album of 2010”. Felipe Plaza, Jonas Pedersen, Claudio Botarro & Uno Bruniusson will deliver melodies of perdition, anger and loss. Live fast, play slow!

INDESINENCE (uk) – Profound Lore Records
www.facebook.com/Indesinence

Does UK death/doom metal sound familiar? It definitely should, with classic early work of bands like My Dying Bride, Anathema and Paradise Lost. With Indesinence, it’s not all that far from what you’ll be presented with. They are not only offering heavier than heavy death metal, but also dare to enter other various territories within the death metal genre.
Slow, atmospheric parts will occasionally burst into faster moments giving you a varied and deadly dose of metal experience. Neck-breakingly heavy grooves and mesmerizing guitar leads will escort you even further to your doom with the performance of Indesinence!

With more than 10 years behind them as a band, they have crafted 2 monumental full lengths, the latest being released last year. Indesinence may not be the most frequently active live band, but every occasion they choose to enter the stage has been of high quality nonetheless.

TAURUS (us ) to hit Europe for the first time in April/May 2014!

Press release: TAURUS (us – members of Dark Castle and Purple Rhinestone Eagle) to hit Europe for the first time in April/May 2014!

Killtown Bookings is extremely stoked to announce that Portland based all-girl two-piece TAURUS will be touring Europe for the first time ever in late April to early May 2014! The tour will be based around their performance at the 3rd edition of the annual Heavy Days In Doomtown in Copenhagen, Denmark from 1st to 4th May!

Taurus is a Ambient/Psych/Drone/Doom Metal two piece consisting of Stevie Floyd from Dark Castle, and Ashley Spungin from the now defunct Purple Rhinestone Eagle.

Taurus have just one release behind them, “Life” from 2012. A sprawling and far out epic journey through the drone doom universe, filled with ambient soundscapes and strange vocal passages, “Life” portrays a nightmarish world of sorts. The ambient doomscapes Taurus put forth features down-tuned, loud and distorted guitar, with crawling, heavy drumming. A new full length is in the works taking the musical direction of Taurus towards a more heavy sound with influences from death and black metal. “Nothing” will be out in the spring of 2014, so there is something to look forward to!

Check out Taurus here:

If you are interested in booking TAURUS on their forthcoming Euro adventure, please get in touch with Daniel at Killtown Bookings; killtowntourbookings@gmail.com

Dates will be announced at this site as they will be confirmed.
