Portal have released a new track from their upcoming album Vexovoid, which is due out on February 19th via Profound Lore. “Curtain” is the name of this six minute hell raiser and it is what you would come to expect from the Australian band, which is not a bad thing. It’s a cavernous, cacophonous swirl of noisy death metal that sounds as if it has crawled out of the lowest level of Hades. There are a lot of very straightforward, dissonant tremolo picked chords that are layered in such a way that it bears a very disturbing vibe. But enough of me jabbering, go check out the track at Pitchfork now!
You may remember me mentioning that the mighty Godflesh’s 2001 album Hymns was getting the remaster treatment. Well, Brooklyn Vegan is currently streaming your first taste of what is to come in the form of a remaster demo of the track “Paralyzed” from Hymns. This demo version will be included on the bonus disc accompanying the remastered leviathan. The reissue is due out on February 19th through The End records. Check out the awesome demo below.
Narrows have put together a string of tour dates for late April and early May of next year. The tour will see the band rocking parts of Europe and the UK with support from Coliseum and Strife on select dates.

Legendary New York death metallers Suffocation have been prepping the release of their new full-length Pinnacle of Bedlam, which is due out on February 15th via Nuclear Blast Records, and now the band has unleashed a relentless new track titled “Grace Descends” and I will already say that if this track is any indication as to how this album will sound, I already like this better than 2009’s Blood Oath. You can stream “Grace Descends” after the jump and see the spectacular album art at the top of this post. Continue reading →
