WHITECHAPEL Streaming New Track “Our Endless War”

whitechapel-ourendlesswarI was a huge fan of Whitechapel‘s Somatic Defilement but my adoration of them kinda tapered off after that. When I learned that the band was releasing a new album, I didn’t really get excited about it, but once I listened to the record, I was really into it. Whitechapel have re-incorporated a lot of the things that made me a fan of theirs in the first place, which is good to hear. The band has just released a lyric video for their new albums title track “Our Endless War” which you can check out after the jump. Radness.     Continue reading

ABORTED Streaming New Track “Coffin Upon Coffin”

Aborted-The-Necrotic-ManifestoThe great masters of sickening gore Aborted will release their latest monstrosity The Necrotic Manifesto in just two weeks and the band has released a lyric video for their track “Coffin Upon Coffin.” Holy shit, this band gets better and better with every release and I can’t wait to sit down and listen to the new record. Check out the lyric video for “Coffin Upon Coffin” after the jump.      Continue reading


TAGPissed off UK grind band The Afternoon Gentlemen, of whom I adore, haven’t released any music since their 2012 split with Suffering Mind, but the band is back and angrier than ever. The band will unleash a new 3-song 7″ in June and they are currently streaming one of the new tracks “Grind In The Mind.” Woah. This is amazing, but duh, it’s The Afternoon Gentlemen.     Continue reading

Review: LIONHEART – “Welcome To The West Coast”

wttwcepI’ve recently started listening to a band called Lionheart, who are fairly new to me but they have a handful of releases under their belts. Their latest offering caught my eye not too long ago after I watched one of their music videos. I was instantly intrigued based on my love of this style of metallic hardcore. Lionheart kick shit into gear right away and they destroy. That’s a fact.     Continue reading


The-Dillinger-Escape-Plan-photo-by-Nathaniel-ShannonSo, I don’t know how no one on American Aftermath posted about this, but a few weeks ago The Dillinger Escape Plan released a new track called “Happiness Is A Smile” which was pressed on a limited edition 7″ and sold only on the bands current tour. Well, the band has been playing the song at every show and they have been filming every performance and it has been wrapped up into a pretty rad live video. Check out the video for “Happiness Is a Smile” after the jump.     Continue reading

RUDE Streaming New Track “Haunted”

rude-soulrecallCalifornia is just teaming with amazing music, isn’t it? A new band fresh out of the state goes by the name Rude and they are pretty rad. Their music is very reminiscent of ’90s era death metal, of which the band obviously worships. Dude, this is sickeningly sweet. The band is streaming a track from their debut called “Haunted” and you can check it out after the jump. DO IT. NOW.     Continue reading

sovereignsBelgian black metal legends Enthroned have returned to the folds and they are preparing to release their latest offering in their twenty-year existence. The bands tenth album is titled Sovereigns and it is currently streaming in full over on Loudwire. This is an album that you had better get on because it is a crusher of suns. Check out a track from Sovereigns after the jump and then head over and stream the full album.    Continue reading

7″ Review: HERESIARCH – “Wælwulf”

GD17V4.pdfHeresiarch I have never heard of before a few weeks ago, but the bands brand of blackened death metal is something that I adore. The level of old school death metal that is housed within this 7″ is ungodly and unforgiving. Think of Father Befouled, shake it up a bit and add in a little Satanic Warmaster. Let simmer for three tracks and then blast on high.    Continue reading

Album Of The Week: XBISHOPX’s “Suicide Party”

SuicidePartySo, I was at a Hastings the other day looking through CDs (I know, right? Who buys CDs?) and I stumbled across an album that I haven’t seen in years. That album was xBishopx’s Suicide Party, and I was beyond stoked that it was only a few bucks and an amazing find. I was a huge  fan of xBishopx in the mid 2000s, so getting back into them all these years later is great. I chose this record as the album of the week basically because I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since I bought it.

Oh yeah. Remember Ferret Records?!     Continue reading

KILLGASM Streaming New Track “Revenge Of The Panzergoat”

Killgasm-A-Stab-in-the-Heart-of-Christ-e1397144987549Blackened grind misfits Killgasm will be releasing their latest filth in the form of A Stab In The Heart Of Christ which will be released late next month. The  band is currently streaming a dastardly beast of a track over on NoCleanSinging, which I have embedded below. This track kills… Everything. Get blasted after the jump.     Continue reading


lomaWest coast hardcore act Loma Prieta have just kicked off their short-but-sweet tour of the west coast with phenomenal support from Fucking Invincible. If you’re on the west coast, I seriously envy you and I hate you if you miss out on one of these sure-to-be-killer shows. Check after the jump for dates.     Continue reading


flo plus machineRemember when I told you about that Florence + The Machine covers album that Sumerian Records is putting out? Well, a few more tracks have been released from the album, but only one that I really care about. Darkest Hour has unleashed their cover of “Spectrum” and it’s pretty fantastic. Alongside Darkest Hour, Ben Bruce from Asking Alexandria and Miss Fortune have released their covers for Sumerian Ceremonials: Florence + The Sphinx – A Tribute To Florence + The Machine.

Check out the covers after the jump, but if you only want to listen to Darkest Hour, I understand.     Continue reading

We discussed the bands new album, his current jams and what he does outside of Numbers. Check out the full interview after the jump and get up on this.     Continue reading

FLORIDIAN WINTER Offer Two Albums For Free Download

floridian winterI am a huge black metal fan and one of my favorite styles of the genre is black punk. What is black punk, you ask? It’s a raw and filthy style of black metal that drips and oozes with punk tones. The band that got me into the genre is Raspberry Bulbs and now another band has crept into my peripheral. The band is called Floridian Winter and I have heard whispers about the band here and there across the interwebs but sitting down right now and listening to the bands material, I am blown away. Check out a stream below that is being hosted by our friends at CVLT Nation, who also have a free download of both releases in the stream.     Continue reading
