Japanese hardcore punks Vivisick have announced the release of their sophomore full-length record and follow-up to their 2008 debut, Respect and Hate. The album will be titled Nuked Identity and will be released on September 11 via Tankcrimes on CD and digital formats. The CD comes packaged in a full color box jacket and includes a twelve-page full color tabloid size newsprint insert and screen printed envelope. A vinyl version mastered by Dan Randall will be available in 2016 coinciding with the band’s West Coast tour with Capitalist Casualties. Vocalist Sunao commented on the new record:
“The god named ‘economy’ was exposed. Absolute existence has begun to fluctuate. People have fallen into identity crisis. What am I? Where is the answer? It is coming time to seek it. I feel each of us will have to find it. In that meaning, this title ‘Nuked Identity’ includes our wish. We will find our new identity and build them again.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found below.
As an added bonus, the band have released the official video for album track “Rebel Is Creation”. That can be viewed below as well.
Minneapolis deathgrinders Ambassador Gun have premiered a dual video for their tracks “Once Upon The Sauce” and “Tomb Of Broken Sleep”, from their album Tomb Of Broken Sleep, over at Decibel. The video, filmed by Adam Dunn, depicts the band’s drunken antics while they simultaneously storm through both raging tracks. The band commented on the video:
“The video was filmed by Adam Dunn,…and as far as quotes go, maybe just say we crushed a bottle of Wild Turkey, three blunts and a case of beer, and fired off two fresh grinders!”

Multi-instrumentalist Dana Schechter (a.k.a Insect Ark) has premiered the official video for her track, “The Collector”, over at Noisey. Taken from the new album, “Portal/Well”, the sinister “The Collector” is set to an abstract and dark clip depicting, as Schechter describes, a “wandering drifter who seeks out lost human souls”. Schechter offered the following comments on the video:
“It’s always a challenge to make visuals for my own music – how do you tell a story for a song with no words? “The Collector” is the tale of a wandering drifter who seeks out lost human souls, swallowing and extinguishing their spirits; the story came to me after the music was complete. Visual inspiration was partly drawn from black & white 1960s Japanese ghost films, but the filthy animated rural/urban landscapes are how it looks in my dreams: barren, looming, washed-out and absent of people. We used a video back-projection in front of dancer Mee Ae, and also filmed her on a greenscreen so I could work her into other animations in post production, which editor Alan Dubin (also the vocalist of Khanate/Gnaw) used in the larger edit.”

Psychedelic doomsayers Windhand have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Grief’s Infernal Flower, over at Metal Hammer. Titled “Hyperion”, the track features a five-minutes of lurching, fuzz-ridden riffs, illuminating vocal melodies and hazy-eyed licks. Bassist Parker Chandler commented on the new tune:
“Hyperion started out as a bedroom recording that eventually made its way into sound checks, practices, etc. Compared to the rest of the album, I think it’s more stripped-down and straight forward.”
Stream the catchy jam now.
Grief’s Infernal Flower will be released on September 18 via Relapse Records.
