Sludge band from New Orleans known for their misanthropic lyrics and endless troubles with law and drugs. They broke up in 2000, but reformed 5 years later. Lead singer Mike Williams was arrested in 2005, following the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, but with the help of supporters was released in December of that same year.
On August 23, 2013 the band's drummer Joey LaCaze died from respiratory failure, aged 42.

No Funeral
Minneapolis sludge band formed in 2011, active since 2013.
Fueled by a vendetta against time, this Milwaukee-based metal band blends pissed-off heavy grooves with dark melodic riffs. Featuring former members of Amora Savant, Die Alone, Enabler, and Nadoula.
What began as a steadfast expression of the human condition, moves forward with momentum for Madison, WI’s atmospheric doom metal band, Bereft. Founded by Zach Johnson and Alex Linden in 2011, the band is rounded out by Cade Gentry on bass and Patrick Hotlen on drums. Bereft weave elements of doom with black metal and post-metal into exhaustive, dynamic songs. Lyrically, they draw from their views on religion, politics and social injustice. It is in this spirit that they creates their own style of powerful metal, unbound to any genre and fully conscious of the impression.

Bereft released their first demo in 2013 and immediately set out playing shows throughout the Midwest. The following year, they recorded their debut EP, Lost Ages, for War Crime/Silent Pendulum Recordings. CVLT Nation cited that the album “possesses a tendency to allow the racing blasts to carry them into more post-rock passages or a beefy, sludge-ridden pace.”

Shows and tours with Agalloch, Gloom, Downfall of Gaia and North kept the band busy for most of 2015. The band is currently hammering out new material for their forthcoming worldwide release on Prosthetic Records, set for a tentative Spring, 2016 release.
