Key To The Abyss by Russia’s finest stoner/sludge metal band Montezuma’s Revenge is now streaming on YouTube – check it out below! Montezuma’s Revenge have made a name for themselves in Russia by their previously released singles and live shows, including opening for Mastodon in Moscow. They also caught some international attention including placing in Metalsucks’s “cinematic roundup”. Now the band puts their pedal to the metal by streaming their debut full-length Key To The Abyss.

There’s nothing like some good Russian hardcore music! Vagiant (no, not that kind of vagiant) is a four piece band from Moscow, Russia, or as they refer to it as “the motherland of Lenin, Lada autos, bears and vodka”, who call themselves a group of antisocial, paranoid still life loving, good-mannered and joyful nerds. The most distinctive element to the band is their strange sense of humor that is based on themes of degredation, blasphemy, substance abuse, psychical disorders and oddly enough, flowers.

Together since 2004, the Moscow, Russia-based indie rock four-piece Man Bites Dog have spent the past eight years building a local (and subsequently international) following via independent releases and extensive gigging. Late last year the band released their EP Safe and Sound, which features the hot new single (and first to hit North America), “Whispers in My Mind.”
