First night done laying some more drum tracks down for the new ND Album..A different approach than the last record with different recording sessions,,some of the songs are worked out and some songs we are going for a more spontaneous approach to see where it takes us but so far we are getting some cool dynamics in drum tones and songs which will ultimately lead to a more diverse and crazy sounding album..it’s looking good so far !!

Isis will re-release their classic Panopticon album next week, April 29th, via Ipecac Records. Mike Jussila remastered the record, which will also contain new artwork and a 12-page booklet. Aaron Turner and Aaron Harris had the following to say about the record:
Jar’d Loose’s 2012 debut, Goes to Purgatory, was almost too good to be true. The Chicago quartet expertly combined the driving rhythms associated with bands like Helmet, with subtle noisy debauchery and offbeat vocals. The end result was an eccentric, fresh take on the 90′s-tinged alternative metal and noise rock sound. Goes to Purgatory was pretty straight forward, but was pulled off with finesse and provided the framework for the band’s sound. But a band as odd as Jar’d Loose are not above pushing their own boundaries. Their sophomore full length, Turns 13, shows the band extending their tendrils into new territories while still maintaining their dirty sound.
Autopsy have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves, over at Pitchfork. The new track is entitled “Burial” and trudges along with low-end, sludgy riffs before exploding into a dissonant death metal attack during its final moments. Head over to Pitchfork to check it out.
Tourniquets, Hacksaws and Graves will be released on April 22nd (Europe) and April 29th (North America) through Peaceville.
Since 2010, California’s Seizures have been crafting abrasive hardcore that could quite possibly level cities or, at the least, melt faces. With the release of their second full length, The Sanity Universal, the five piece have become a force to be reckoned with. The album marks a big stylistic jump from their previous efforts, opting for more unyielding chaos and experimentation. They take the blueprints from bands like Botch and Deadguy and mutate it into new forms. Basically, Seizures put the “chaotic” in “chaotic hardcore”.
American Aftermath got a chance to speak with vocalist Cameron Miller and bassist Ian Hodges on the new album, band beginnings, and future plans.
