Roll Up A Fattie And Stream CANNABIS CORPSE’s New Album!

The good shit never stops rolling in. I’ve actually had this record for a while now. I’ve been spinning it and spinning it and attempting to review it. I am sure I will get to it eventually. But when I just wanna sit back and jam, Cannabis Corpse is good shit to do it too. Is it ironic that I love this marijuana-enhanced death metal band and don’t smoke? Hmm.. I don’t fucking care. This rules. Have you heard Beneath Grow Lights, Thou Shalt Rise yet? Well, if you haven’t, I suggest you head over to here. This album definitely gets the Gnar Seal of Approval.

Clinging To The Trees of a Forest Fire are a house favorite over here at American Aftermath. Well, they are to Josh and myself anyway. I have loved all of the band’s past material and I’ve really been digging what I have heard off of the band’s new EP, Visceral so when I learned that the it was streaming over at Hails and Horns, I was stoked. This release seems to be fucking solid. I haven’t listened all the way through, but it is killer. I highly suggest you head over to Hails and Horns and stream Visceral right now and if you’re into it, which you will be, go pre-order the vinyl. Do it! What? You don’t have a record player? GO BUY ONE! Don’t you know that is the best way to listen to music? So go check it out, then come back here and tell us what you think about it. Grind.

I love it when I get e-mails about seemingly obscure bands only be surprised by the band’s sound. Last night I received an e-mail in regards to a band known as Brutally Deceased. Based on the name, I thought I was going to hear another generic death metal band who sounds like countless others I have heard before. Instead I was treated to a vicious brand of old school Swedish death metal. When I say Swedish, I mean the likes of Entombed mixed with the satisfaction of bands like Bastard Priest. I love it! This band’s sound is utterly crushing, it is not over-produced at all and it sounds perfect. As I was reading who was involved in this band, I learned that members of this band also play in the bands Heaving Earth and Jig-Ai. Holy shit! Killer lineup? Check! Name derived from old school death metal band Grave? Check! Fantastic cover of a Dismember song? Check! This band has shocked the hell out of me and if you want to give ‘em a listen, head over to their Bandcamp page and stream their entire new album Dead Lover’s Guide. Go do it, seriously. This album rips.

Hello and good morning. Yesterday was quite a busy day here at American Aftermath. I, personally got a lot of posts up and made Lane cry and wet his panties because I posted the same thing he did. Get over it. I’m just playing, man. I love you. Anyway, here is some of what we did yesterday: We looked at Evile’s new album art, unveiled a studio update from Oblivionizedwe talked about Weedeater’s new video, I worshiped Lake of Blood again, We listened to a whole minute of new Mastodon song. We also talked about Alex Webster’s upcoming book, Rwake’s long awaited new album and I reviewed GROG’s latest album

. All in all, a good day.

Today’s playlist goes out to my good friend Zac Broughton of Oblivionized. You see, Zac also has a solo black metal project that I am quite fond of called Iconic Destruction. I have posted three songs from YouTube and you can stream and download more at ID’s Bandcamp page. Hope you like it, because I do. Enjoy.
