My attention was first alerted to the existence of Boddicker last fall when I was tasked with the responsibility of reviewing their split with Kata Sarka. I was immediately impressed with the unbridled fury Boddicker was able to contain in each of their songs so I was very much interested in reviewing their latest release, an EP entitled False Flag.
Trap Them, house favorites here at American Aftermath, have already given us a few new tracks off of their new album Blissfucker and now the band has given us even more to be excited for.

Check it out and then head back here and let us know what you think. You can also check out the two previous tracks from Blissfucker below. Continue reading

I have praised Vallenfyre on here recently and for good reason. This band has been phenomenal for a while now but they have gone above and beyond with their latest album Splinters.

The track is called “The Great Divide” and, duh, it destroys. Check it out below or get bent. LOVE IT. Continue reading
This has been a good few days for music by bands that I love. The latest in this comes from the blackened crust entity Wolvhammer. These guys are holding one of the most coveted spots on my most anticipated albums list this year and based off the one song I’ve heard now, the bands new album definitely will not disappoint. The debut track from Clawing Into Black Sun is “Death Division” and it is an all-expansive beast of a track that harnesses every sound that Wolvhammer have ever experimented with. So, yeah. Basically, it rules. Check it out below courtesy of Decibel. Continue reading
Okay, no need to get into semantics, but I fucking adore Trap Them. This band has yet to release anything that hasn’t taken me by storm and the same can easily be said for their forthcoming Blissfucker. This album has shown serious promise with the release of the debut single “Salted Crypts” and now the band has followed that up with the insanely strong “Organic Infernal.” You can check out this blisstering beast after the jump. Holy hell! Continue reading
