Norwegian Grammy Award-winning experimental rockers Årabrot have premiered a new track from their upcoming EP, You Bunch of Idiots, over at Noisey.

Shining (the Swedish one) is a fucked up band. We all know that. I don’t think that has been more evident as of late than today. Today the band released their new music video and it is… Unsafe for anything ever. The video is for the bands track “Vilja & Dröm” and.. Yeah. The video features footage of actual violence and murder, so yeah. Very NSFW. You can watch it on your own accord after the jump. Continue reading →

Nile have announced the release of their eighth studio album and follow-up to 2012’s At the Gate of Sethu. The new record will be titled What Should Not Be Unearthed and will see a release through Nuclear Blast on August 28. Guitarist Karl Sanders issued the following comments regarding the release:
“All of us in Nile are happy to announce our upcoming newest album “What Should not be Unearthed” . It’s our 8th official album, and this time we believe we have a Truly Crushing disc to bring to Metal Fans. The focus this time around is on Brutally Heavy Metal Riffing and songwriting ; kind of like of an AOTW approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. Our last record, At the Gates of Sethu was super surgically clean and very “musicianship oriented” whereas the new disc is a polar opposite; Unearthed is aimed straight at Utter Metal Heaviness and memorable songwriting. Although Unearthed is still full of the kind of Undeniable Musicianship people have come to expect from Nile over the years , it’s the songs themselves that will Hit listeners over the head this time around. These songs will be a blast to play live , and we are stoked at the opportunity to bring these songs to Metal fans everywhere. See you on tour!”
The album’s cover art can be found below.
The band will also be joining Suffocation on a European summer tour in support of the album. Those dates can be found below as well.
