IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT Streaming New Track “Krokodil”

imperialtriumphantI remember listening to and enjoying Imperial Triumphant a while back, but the band had slipped past me. Well, luckily the band has made its way back to me because not only are they planning the release of a new album Abyssal Gods, but the band is currently streaming a new track. The track is titled “Krokodil” and it’s a fucking doozy. It’s a brutal, slow and ravaging track of more than eight minutes. Check it out below.     Continue reading

KEEP OF KALESSIN Streaming New Album “Epistemology”

Keep-of-Kalessin-EpistemologyOkay, I admit that it has been a long while since I’ve listened to Keep Of Kalessin. It was probably around the release of Reptilian that I stopped listening to them, but I don’t remember the band utilizing the technique of “clean vocals” back then. Well, apparently in my Kalessinless times, the band has changed up their vocal stylings on certain tracks (although the harsh vocals seem kinda whack to me also). I just don’t feel like they fit alongside the music. Maybe it’s just me. Judge for yourself and stream Keep Of Kalessin‘s Epistemology below.       Continue reading

SARPANITUM Streaming New Track “By Virtuous Reclamation”

UK black/death metal outfit Sarpanitum have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Blessed Be My Brothers, over at Stereogum. Titled “By Virtuous Reclamation”, the track is full of gravity-defying death metal acrobatics, glowing atmospherics and hyperspeed drumming that is difficult for the mind to grasp. Guitarist/bassist Tom Hyde issued the following comments on the track:

“The song takes place during the Council of Clermont, specifically the speech given by Pope Urban II with the aim of manipulating Christian Europe into taking arms against Islam in the East and effectively starting what we now know to be the First Crusade. It is a grim reminder of how, throughout history, the elites exploit spirituality in order to make false claims and turn religions and races against each other in war. Musically it is filled with chaotic melody, brutally intense drumming and vibrantly ancient atmospheres.”

Head over to Stereogum to stream the track now.

Blessed Be My Brothers will be released on February 17 via Willowtip Records. Pre-orders can be placed here.

PRIMITIVE MAN Streaming New Track “Bag Man”

primitive-man-home-is-where-the-hatred-isWe love Primitive Man around here and the bands imminent new EP Home Is Where The Hatred Is is coming soon, so it’s not surprising that the band would unload (at least) one more new track in the two weeks leading up to the albums release. “Bag Man” is the track that CVLT Nation premiered today and it’s a phenomenal slab of unholy thunder. The band has truly outdone themselves on Home Is Where The Hatred Is, as has been proved with both of the bands new tracks. Stream “Bag Man” below for fucks sake.     Continue reading

Review: DEAD IN THE MANGER – “Cessation”

Dead In The Manger made an interesting entrance last year with the release of their debut, six-track EP, Transience. The band, who remain shrouded in anonymity, combined blistering black metal instrumentation with the ferocity and hyper-speed rhythms of grindcore. The six-movement record was immediate and dismal, as one would expect from a grind/black metal hybrid. To follow up that release, Dead In The Manger have crafted another six-track album that will, once again, drag you into the deepest depths of a blackened abyss.
