Icelandic death metal outfit, Beneath, have released the official details on their forthcoming sophomore full length. The new record will bear the title The Barren Throne and will see a release through Unique Leader on April 29th. This will mark the band’s first release with new vocalist, Benedikt Nathanael Bjarnason, who joined the band in June of 2013. On the album itself, guitarist Johann Ingi comments:
We are truly thrilled to be releasing our second full-length on Unique Leader Records. During the writing and recording of The Barren Throne, every single member of the band has surpassed themselves, taking the album to another level. The album is tighter, more focused and doesn´t give an inch when it comes to sheer brutality. We are inspired by many different genres of extreme music and on this record we sought to embrace this and transcend the need to adhere to the common boundaries of the technical death metal genre. This has resulted in what we feel is our most dynamic and relevant release yet.
Below you will find the album’s official artwork and track listing, as well as a track from the band’s previous album Enslaved By Fear.

You can check out the album’s artwork, track listing and title track after the break.

I’ve been disappointed by the latest Killwhitneydead material I’ve heard off of the bands new album Suffer My Wrath mostly because it’s not the Killwhitneydead I fell in love with all of those years ago. I mean, somethings just shouldn’t be tampered with. Well, the band has released another new track which I don’t hate as much as some of the other tracks they have released off of Suffer My Wrath. The song is called “Replicate To Survive” and you can check it out after the jump. It features guest vocals from the singer of Vanisher (although I am not familiar with them). Check it.
