Blackened grindcore heathens Anaal Nathrakh will be releasing their new record, their first for new label Metal Blade Records, and the band has unleashed their beastly new track “Monstrum In Animo” over on Decibel. This track is vicious, it’s loud and it’s apocalyptic. You can stream the monstrosity after the jump. If you dare. Continue reading
Today saw the release of Aevangelist‘s new album Writhes In The Murk, which is one of the filthiest, most grotesque, most phenomenally heavy albums of the year. If you’re new to the band, this is a good place to start and if you’re already into the US purveyors of blackened death. After the jump you can stream/buy the new album from Aevangelist and I highly suggest doing so. It rules. Enjoy, fool. Continue reading
Scandinavian one-woman black metal act Myrkur is a band that jumped onto my radar a week or so ago and I have really been enjoying what I’ve heard from her self-titled debut record, which is to be released next week. The band has a very dark and intense sound and I think this will definitely be a contender for EP of the year. Check it out over on Pitchfork and see what you think.
Greek black metallers Varathron have announced the release of their 7th full length album and follow up to 2012’s Genesis of the Unaltered Evil. The new record will be entitled Untrodden Corridors of Hades and will be released through Agonia Records on November 21st (Europe) and December 9th (Rest of the World). The record was recorded, mixed and engineered by Kostas Kalampokas at Infinite Loop Music in Greece and was mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll (1349, Emperor, etc)at Strype Audio in Norway. The album’s artwork, track listing and video trailer can be seen after the break.
Pre-orders for Untrodden Corridors of Hades can be placed here.
Holy hell. Talk about extreme meets extreme, Mortals will be teaming up with crusty blackened act Wolvhammer around Halloween and running through mid-November. This tour is sure to decimate all reality and if you are anywhere within the vicinity of at least one of these shows, I highly recommend checking it out. You’ve got crust and you’ve got filth, all packed into one space, so what’s not to be stoked about? Check out the dates after the jump! Continue reading
Blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch have today unveiled their new music video for their track “Unending, Everliving,” which comes off of the bands most recent effort Serpents Unleashed. The video is quite certainly NSFW, so watch it on your own time. It’s a pretty rad video, although no where near the bands video with the Furries. Check out the video for “Unending, Everliving” below. Continue reading
A few weeks back Deafheaven were seen in live footage performing their new song “From The Kettle Onto The Coil” and now the band has released a studio version of the track. Of course, the track will be released for free as a part of Adult Swim’s Summer Singles on the 25th of this month, so look forward to that, but until then check out a full stream of the track after the jump.

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. Continue reading
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. After the jump you can check out the track as well as a statement from Judd himself about the track. Check it out. Continue reading
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
