Italian blackened doom outfit Forgotten Tomb have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Hurt Yourself and the Ones You Love, over at Steel for Brains. Titled “Bad Dreams Come True”, the seven-minute leviathanic track cycles between massive, bending grooves, menacing melodies and icy black metal assaults. Stream the beast for yourself at this location.
Hurt Yourself and the Ones You Love will be released on April 17 (Europe) and April 21 (North America) via Agonia Records.

The track is titled “Framtidsutsikter” and, after it’s somewhat somber intro, it proceeds to crush and destroy with rage and angst. Check out the track below and get run over. YES. Continue reading
WAKE and Primitive Man, two of the most promising young bands in extreme music are making preparations for their upcoming spring tour which will see them getting the party started right in Denver May 15 and bringing things to a close in St.Louis 5/28. With stops along the way in D.C., with The Body and Water Torture, and in Charm City at MDF with the millions of amazing bands that play that event every year.
This tour will cover both ends of the extreme music spectrum with Primitive Man bringing the slow, crushing, low-end pain with their punishing brand of blackened sludge/doom while WAKE will be providing the SPEEEED!! with the unending power and mania that is their hardcore/grind attack.

Colombian blackened death metal outfit Nepente have premiered the title track of their forthcoming EP, I Will Get Your Soul, over at The Independent Voice. The track begins with some acoustic strumming before exploding into an onslaught of scathing, gore-splattered riffs and black metal melody. Feel free to stream the track after the break.
I Will Get Your Soul will be released on March 31 via Cimmerian Shade Recordings.
If there is one thing you should know about Sigh at this point in life, it is that this band never does anything conventional or “inside the box.” This is very, very apparent in the bands new music video for “Out Of The Grave.” This video is being called NSFW everywhere else I’ve seen the story, but I think that everything is moving waaaay too fast in this video for anything inappropriate to be pinpointed. Regardless, check out the new Sigh video below. Continue reading
Swedish trio Hypothermia (Lifelover, Kall) have premiered the title track from their upcoming album, Svartkonst. The track is a nearly seven-minute instrumental composition that combines the intensity of black metal with heavy nuances of shoegaze and post-rock. The end result is a hauntingly gorgeous track that is worth several repeats. Feel free to stream the track after the break.
Svartkonst will be released on May 15 (Europe) and May 19 (North America) via Agonia Records. Pre-orders can be found here.
North Dakota-based thrash/black metal hybrids Frosthelm have premiered the lyric video for their new track ” A Storm of Teeth”, which comes from their upcoming album The Endless Winter. The track features all of the frostbitten tremolo picking, high octane drumming and bone-crushing thrash you can possibly handle. The lyric video can be viewed after the break along with a stream of the album’s title track.
The Endless Winter will be released on March 22.
You should all know by this point that I love Leviathan. I would probably go as far as to call them my favorite black metal band of all time. Jef’s musicianship is unlike any other and he creates truly dark and haunting music. Well, the dude has taken it one step further (and awesome-er) by putting on wax (or plastic) a cover of Black Flag‘s “My War.” Leviathan + Black Flag = ALL OUT WAAAAAR. Check out a stream of the beast below. Pun intended. #BlackMetalFlag Continue reading
