New York-based black metal band Tombs released an amazing album called Savage Gold earlier this year and the band has now released a great music video for a great track. I love the track “Seance” and the music video accompaniment is spectacular. You can check out the video after the jump and be sure to pick up Savage Gold if you haven’t. It’s available now via Relapse Records. Continue reading
Death metal horde Belphegor will be releasing their abysmally brutal new record Conjuring The Dead tomorrow and the band is currently streaming this aural beat-down right now. I have loved this band for a long time and I think they are in top form on Conjuring. Blackened death metal at its finest and definitely not for the meek. Check out the full stream after the jump.

Botanist’s oddly beautiful new album, VI: Flora, can now be streamed in its entirety over at Noisey. The hammered dulcimer-infused black metal affair will officially be released next Monday, August 11th, via The Flenser. But we know you cannot wait four more days, so feel free to stream the album over at Noisey now.
US black metal force Krieg will soon be releasing their latest sacrificial offering Transient and the band is currently streaming a new track titled “Order Of The Solitary Road.” This track is vicious and phenomenal through and through. I can’t wait to hear Transient in full, especially if the rest of the album sounds anything like “Order…” Check out the track after the jump, courtesy of Decibel Magazine. Continue reading
Pitchfork has unveiled pro-shot footage from their music festival in Chicago earlier this month of Deafheaven performing a new track entitled “From The Kettle To The Coil”. The video footage arrived yesterday with tweets of the above image and the caption “It is done. Come August, it’s yours.” with the PRP reporting that the newly performed track will be part of Adult Swim‘s free singles series for this year, scheduled for release and download on August 25th. The track is standard Deafheaven fare, continuing alongside the revamped direction of Sunbather, though there is a trudging number around the 2:00 minute mark that could foretell a harsher direction for the band in the future. Stream the video for “From The Kettle To The Coil” below and bookmark the Adult Swim Singles page for future reference. Continue reading
Nachtmystium, who will be fully disbanding after the release of their final album The World We Left Behind, have unleashed a stream of their new track “Tear You Down,” which deals with Blake Judd’s heroine addiction/recovery.

One-man Kentucky-based black metal band Panopticon will release their latest offering, Roads To The North in a few days time and the time has come for the world to experience the masterful, manic nature that is Roads To The North. The album is phenomenal in every way and it is most definitely Album Of The Year material and if you pass on this one, I feel deep regret for your life. Check it out over on NPR. You want to. Check out one “Chase The Grain” after the jump to get a small taste of this shit. Continue reading
Brooklyn’s blackened, sludgy, hardcore heathens Mortals unleashed their new album Cursed To See The Future earlier in the month and the band have followed it up with a music video for their track “View From A Tower.” I adore this band and I really dig the song, but the video just doesn’t do anything for me. Check it out after the jump and see if it tickles your funny places. Continue reading
It’s always a bummer when bands you really love decide to call it a day. This has been the case many times for me with bands like Alexisonfire, Bone Dance and Heartless and now another band has been laid to rest: Castevet. The post-rock/black metal band formed in 2006 and released two full-length albums and an EP on top of relentless touring and gigging around the world. This band will definitely be missed and I’m sad to see them go. After the jump you can stream the bands most recent album Obsian as well as their previous LP Mounds Of Ash. Continue reading
Black Anvil have a penchant for being a dark and brooding band but it appears that there is more to the band than meets the ear. The band has unleashed their cover of Kiss‘ “Under The Rose” and it is phenomenal. While the guitars remain heavy, the clean vocals add something interesting to the mix. Although I will say that said clean vocals are very haunting. All in all, I think the cover is a success. Check it out after the jump and tell us what you think in the comments. Continue reading

That is why I am proud to inform you all that Decibel Magazine is streaming Harbinger in full! Yes! After the jump you can get a heavy dose of black metal all over your face, neck and chest.

Still famished from the gargantuan slaughter-fest that was last year’s Underworlds, Mammoth Grinder have returned with new material in the form of a four-track tape EP entitled Cosmic Crypt, streaming now exclusively over at Noisey and available for purchase on the band’s upcoming East Coast tour with Power Trip. Featuring three new tracks capped at the end with a Rudimentary Peni cover, Cosmic Crypt returns to the more savage and unpolished production of the band’s older discography, amplifying the celestial suggestions of the new EP with a more distant yet still vicious pummeling. Check out Cosmic Crypt via Noisey here and peep the full details and dates for the band’s upcoming tour with Texan crossover thrash brothers, Power Trip, below. Continue reading

American black metal act Ptahil are apparently releasing a new album and I had no idea it was happening. Usually I would have heard something about this, but it has somehow slipped by me completely. Luckily, I caught it early enough to post about it before the albums official release date. The band is currently streaming the aforementioned album Born Against and you can stream it below. If you were aware of the band before, then you know what you’re in for. Check out this ferocious slab of black metal filth after the jump. Continue reading
New York’s black metal horde Mutilation Rites will release their phenomenally heavy new record Harbinger later this month and the band has released the brutally blackened track “Gravitational Collapse” for you all to enjoy.
