New York metal out fit Tombs will be releasing their new album this June and the band has just dropped a blistering, blackened new track that will take you to the “Edge Of Darkness.” Get it? Well, enough of the puns, you NEED to hear this track. If you don’t do anything else today, get a dose of Tombs after the jump. Continue reading
Kreig are a band that has evolved and expanded its sound many times since the Battlegod demo was released in 1996. The band has always captured my attention and I have always admired them. That’s why I got so excited when I found out that CVLT Nation was streaming the two tracks that will be available on the bands Record Store Day 7″ Isolation/Transmission. I mean, it’s Kreig! The band has transmuted itself to play a form of blackened post-rock on this release and it’s utterly phenomenal. Continue reading
Young And In The Way are definitely one of my favorite bands currently. Their raw, abrasive style of blackened crust is something that I find myself heavily gravitating towards and their new album When Life Comes To Death is the greatest example of how amazing this band is. YAITW have released a music video for the new track “Be My Blood” and I can honestly say I would be anything for this band. Check out the rad, Max Moore-directed video after the jump. Continue reading
Agalloch have unveiled the dates for the first, west coast, leg of their Serpens In Culmination tour.

Belgian black metal legends Enthroned have returned to the folds and they are preparing to release their latest offering in their twenty-year existence.

Check out a track from Sovereigns after the jump and then head over and stream the full album. Continue reading
Heresiarch I have never heard of before a few weeks ago, but the bands brand of blackened death metal is something that I adore. The level of old school death metal that is housed within this 7″ is ungodly and unforgiving. Think of Father Befouled, shake it up a bit and add in a little Satanic Warmaster. Let simmer for three tracks and then blast on high. Continue reading
Blackened grind misfits Killgasm will be releasing their latest filth in the form of A Stab In The Heart Of Christ which will be released late next month. The band is currently streaming a dastardly beast of a track over on NoCleanSinging, which I have embedded below. This track kills… Everything. Get blasted after the jump. Continue reading
I am a huge black metal fan and one of my favorite styles of the genre is black punk. What is black punk, you ask? It’s a raw and filthy style of black metal that drips and oozes with punk tones. The band that got me into the genre is Raspberry Bulbs and now another band has crept into my peripheral. The band is called Floridian Winter and I have heard whispers about the band here and there across the interwebs but sitting down right now and listening to the bands material, I am blown away. Check out a stream below that is being hosted by our friends at CVLT Nation, who also have a free download of both releases in the stream. Continue reading

Blackened death metal horde Gravehill have put out one of the gnarliest albums of the year and definitely one of the filthiest. The album is called Death Curse and I have already told you about one of the brilliant tracks from the album. But wait, that’s not enough for you? You want more? Well, have I got something for you! Gravehill are currently streaming their new album in full! Check it out: Continue reading
One of my favorite record labels in hardcore and metal music today is Deathwish Inc. (home of Deafheaven, Converge, Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Punch and many more). And over the past few days they’ve been teasing and counting down to a major announcement of some kind. None of us knew what it was, many assumed it could be an album release of some sort but the label dropped no hints until the announcement came today in the form of the picture you see above you.
Blackened death metalcore act Lions Of Tsavo who released the fantastic Traverser last year are currently offering up this album for free download until April 14th.

So click on over and stream and download the album and then figure out if this tour is coming near you. Continue reading
If you have yet to wrap your mind around Cloak Of Altering yet, you are seriously missing out. This is yet another solo project by Gnaw Their Tongues only man Mories except this time around we get more black metal goodness with less of the noise. Of course, being a product of Mories, it’s still odd and off it’s rocker, but it’s an amazing tune nonetheless.
This track comes off of Cloak Of Altering‘s Plague Beasts which will be released later this month on Crucial Blast. Click on over after the jump if you’re ready to get your mind blown. Prepare to come face to face with the “Chaos Magician of The Abyss.” Continue reading
Austrian post-black metal band Harakiri For The Sky will release one of the best albums of 2014 at the end of the month and the band has unleashed a new track off of the album. The track is called “Burning At Both Ends” and it is a phenomenal feat of blackened goodness. Melody and agitation go hand in hand on this song and you have GOT to hear this. Check out the track after the jump. Continue reading
