September 13th, 2012

The UK’s newest progressive extreme metal juggernaut, The HAARP Machine, has created quite the buzz within the metal world upon announcing their worldwide signing to Sumerian Records. However, most people don’t realize how forward-thinking this band is and how attuned they are to the socioeconomic issues that plague today’s society. Their message and music is truly the definitive of progressive metal. Expect the band’s much anticipated, debut full-length album, Disclosure, to definitely turn some heads. The disc is set for an Oct. 16th release and the striking new video for the track “Pleiadian Keys” can be found now at

Al Mu’min (guitars) states: “Our debut album is an amalgamation of many influences across the spectrum and lyrically addresses many of the socioeconomic and political issues in our society today. We hope it will open doors for listeners and broaden their musical horizons as well as spark an interest in areas that dictate our lives, but are swept under the rug to maintain the status quo and keep the populace aloof to the sick capitalist venture of the big money cartels. We feel very fortunate to be in this position and wish to use this opportunity to spread the word on social change via the application of the scientific method for the betterment of humankind. There IS an alternative to the un-sane society we live in and it is our duty to this planet and all its inhabitants to awaken the sleepers. We can no longer ignore the writings on the wall. The time for change is now.”

The boundaries of extreme progression are about to be pushed to previously unknown depths and it’s certainly an exciting time for the genre.

HAARP UNVEILS NEW TRACKS

November 17th, 2010

HAARP UNVEILS NEW TRACKS WITH BROOKLYNVEGAN.COM AND INVISIBLEORANGES.COM

‘THE FILTH’ HITS STORES ON NOVEMBER 23RD, 2010

New Orleans heavy metal act haarp has just unveiled two new tracks with BrooklynVegan.com and InvisibleOranges.com today! BrooklynVegan is currently streaming the track ‘A New Reign’, and InvisibleOranges is currently streaming ‘The Blue Chamber Painted Red’. Both tracks are cut from haarp’s upcoming album, The Filth, to be released on November 23rd, 2010 on HOUSECORE RECORDS.

The band recently posted the never-before-seen album art on their MySpace page, illustrated by famed artist and tattoo master Paul Booth. The Filth is produced by HOUSECORE RECORDS label owner Philip Anselmo.

“When Phil called me all excited about this new brutality and its unique concepts he needed cover art for, I could immediately tell his conviction and excitement far surpassed his usual dark vigor,” recalls album artist Paul Booth. “Of course, I was in. Once Keith presented me with one of haarp‘s lyrical concepts in regards to Gluttony, it was actually amazing to me how similar their ideas were to my own. This collaborative vision was meant to be, as far as I was concerned. I look forward to creating more art to this slow and painfully twisted epic of doom.”

On August 27th, 2005, two of New Orleans’ extreme metal bands, manic grind freaks rat in a bucket and black metal blazers De Capa Preta, were slated to play a show at the now defunct Dixie Taverne in the heart of Mid-City.  Due to ‘inclement weather’ and the threat of Hurricane Katrina making landfall, the bands decided that since many people were evacuating the city, the show could not go on.

Hurricane Katrina struck and devastated the Gulf Coast region and effected many aspects of people’s lives. The music scene in New Orleans was not spared from this change and many bands, including rat in a bucket and De Capa Preta, suffered members departing the band, and ultimately calling it quits.

Keith Sierra Jr., drummer from rat in a bucket, and Grant Tom, guitarist from De Capa Preta, got in contact with each other from their temporary locations and discussed the state of the music scene. After digging up old conversations and ideas they had discussed at various local shows, they decided to return to New Orleans and start a new band.  This new band would approach music from a new direction from the speed and chaos of their respective previous bands, and focus more on mid-tempo and slower music.  The immediate choice for vocalist was Shaun Emmons of rat in a bucket, who shared the varied and eclectic musical tastes of Keith and Grant. Several tryouts later, Ryan Pomes of Milktoast joined the group and finalized the lineup as bassist.

“To call haarp “slow” would be somewhat fair, but to say that they’re just “another slow band” would be sacrilege,” states label owner Philip Anselmo. “Their music is crushing, resolute, dramatic and conceptually insane.  If critics are going to try and lump them into any one genre, than they’d better put the crown on haarp‘s collective heads once it’s picked.  This ain’t Doom Metal by any stretch. haarp makes playing halftime sound like an original idea all over again.  This music is essential.”
