Celebrate The Guilt! WILLOWTIP Reissuing ARSIS’ Debut!

Not sure if you know it or not, but over here at American Aftermath, we like Arsis. I don’t think Josh liked Starve For The Devil as much as I did, but I know that Josh and I both love the band’s debut album Celebration of Guilt. I know Josh and I also have been looking forward to new material from the band ever since we were teased with a new demo. I was informed today that Willowtip Records will be reissuing Arsis’ Celebration of Guilt which originally came out in 2004 and it will include remastered tracks, two never before heard tracks and expanded artwork all packed into a slipcase. Oh, joy! Are you as stoked as I am? Sure you are! This reissue will be released on August 9th so keep an eye out for it. I got a promo of this beauty and you can believe, it’s fantastic.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE Exceed My Expectations

Remember when I admitted to not knowing much about Fleshgod Apocalypse? Well, as I am writing this, I am listening to the new single off of their upcoming release, Agony. This track is titled “The Violation” and it’s a ripper. The riffing is insane, the drumming is unbelievable. I really love the screamed vocals while the clean vocals I’m kind of iffy about. The synth stuff is kind of odd to me too, but not entirely off putting. It’s pretty sick. You can check out the track streaming below via Nuclear Blast.

Morning Jams: Throwback Mixtape

Good morning, metalheads! I apologize for the lack of posts yesterday. I tried to get some stuff up, but due to an American Holiday, it was pretty hectic around these parts. Today I plan to have a bit more for you and then tomorrow I should be back up to full speed. Today felt like a good day to jam some old school tunes. I have put together a killer playlist of bands and I hope you enjoy it as much as I am. Dig it.
