Blood On Every Fucking Thing: AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED To Put Out Numerous Releases

Not one. Not two. No, three fucking records! That’s right, grind legends Agoraphobic Nosebleed will be releasing three new albums in the future, one after the other. Each album will feature master-of-craft Scott Hull and either J. Randall, Kat Katz or Richard Johnson, depending on the album you’re listening to. This is fucking amazing news. Three new ANb albums to destroy each and every one of your senses. Are you pumped yet? Because there is more! Agorableed will also be releasing their second annual holiday flexi disc for Decibel Magazine this Christmas season (the first, A Joyful Noise can be downloaded on J.’s label here for free). Fucking ANb everywhere! Yes!

Passages Into Deformity: DEFEATED SANITY Prepare New Album

German death metallers Defeated Sanity are prepping the release of their new album Passages Into Deformity to be released on Willowtip Records on February 5th. If you have any history listening to Defeated Sanity, you already know that they are one of the most aggressive, crushing death metal bands as of late. Fast, brutal and relentless, Passages Into Deformity is sure to be no joke. I am looking forward to the album, that’s for sure. You can check out the track list for the album after the jump as well as a track off of the band’s last album after the jump. The artwork for Passages can be seen at the top of this post. Get stoked.

Cold, Bleak Manhattan?: Television’s FRIENDS Get’s A Black Metal Makeover

There have been many metal incarnations of non-metal…. stuff over the years. Like that awesome Larry David/Motorhead mash-up shirt (seen here) and now something that I find amazing: NBC/Nick @ Nite’s FRIENDS made into black metal characters (name logos and all) by Skreened. It’s pretty fucking fantastic. You can see David Schwimmer’s character Ross as it appears on the t-shirt at the top of this post and see the rest of the stock here. Unfortunately, these shirts are rather pricey ($30 a piece), but they are cool nonetheless.

Video Roundup: Watch New Videos From HOMEWRECKER And WHITECHAPEL

If you remember, we hosted a full album stream of Homewrecker‘s new album Worms And Dirt which you can still stream here and to go along nicely with this album, the band has released a new music video for the tracks “Wreck” and “Worms & Dirt” together. The video is pretty rad. Lots of jump cuts and a ton of crushing tunes. Homewrecker‘s new album is a must-have for fans of crusty violence. You can check out the new video after the jump.

Of course, if this isn’t your taste, you can watch the new chugtastic Whitechapel video over here. In a bit of positive Whitechapel news, Metal Blade will be re-releasing the bands debut album The Somatic Defilement which was by far the bands best album (at least in this bloggers perspective). So yeah. Enjoy that also, I guess. Continue reading

Watch BIRD EATER Perform New Material Live

Live footage of Bird Eater’s (Gaza, etc) entire set at The Shred Shed in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 1st has surfaced online. The set features the band performing some new material that will be featured on the band’s upcoming record, which is untitled and has no release date as of yet. The audio gets a little out of sync sometimes but you get the jist of the songs. From what my feeble ears can hear, these songs are hard hitting and just brutal. Check out the video below and be sure to check back for more Bird Eater news.
