I have been a fan of Belphegor for a long, long time and I always look forward to new material by the band, but while I love their music, I am not a fan of their new music video. The video I speak of is for their track “Conjuring The Dead” and it just doesn’t seem like a Belphegor video as much as a Cradle Of Filth video. Fuck what I think, though. Check out the video for yourself. Continue reading

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
The strange Los Angeles metallic hardcore ensemble Twitching Tongues are currently streaming a new “live” album entitled World War Live exclusively over at Decibel Magazine. Recorded live with an audience of twenty sum members, the dichotomous fake/real record(with art by Sean Taggart (Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front)) simultaneously functions as a best-of album for the group with jokes, cameos and easter eggs that followers of California hardcore will be able to pick out. The band’s official statement for the record is as follows:
Recorded live in the Van Nuys stadium called THE PIT in front of twenty screaming fans, this is (not) a true testament to the event that occurs when this band hits the stage. The band was tired of hearing “they’re better live,” so here it is. With a setlist comprised mostly of songs from their latest LP, In Love There Is No Law, as well as previous material, the record almost doubles as a best-of the band’s current stage. The album cover was made by the legendary Sean Taggart (Carnivore, Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front) and hardcopy buyers will regret their purchases slightly less with the addition of bonus material.
Stream World War Live here and pre-order the physical record, which promises extra material, via Closed Casket Activities here. Alternatively, attendees of this year’s This Is Hardcore festival can purchase the record from Closed Casket before everyone else gets it shipped.
The controversial moshcore titans in Desolated have announced dates for a sure-to-be ignorant month long US tour later this Fall alongside Florida deathcore act Traitors, our Pennsylvania metallic hardcore friends in Benchpress and New York hardcore act VICE. With a strange hierarchy of hatred, wherein metalheads have come to hate hardcore shows for the violence and in turn, the hardcore scene has come to hate Desolated for the same reasons, this tour alongside its crew of bands is going to be something. Peep full details and dates via the poster above.
Helsinki black/death metal neophytes Maveth will be joining their-long-running Athens peers Embrace Of Thorns for an eight track split of epic proportions, spanning a hefty thirty-seven minutes and entitled “A Plague Through The Heavens” later this August.

Belgium’s necrotic death metal act Aborted have just unveiled their new music video, which is for the track “The Extirpation Agenda.” The track comes off of the bands latest album The Necrotic Manifesto and it is a total destroyer.

Polish death metallers Decapitated have announced the release of their sixth full length record and follow up to 2011’s Carnival is Forever. The new record will be entitled Blood Mantra and will see a release through Nuclear Blast and Mystic Production on September 26th. Guitarist and founding member Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka had the following to say about the forthcoming effort:
“Extreme and groove – I think that’s the best way to describe our new album. This time we feel that we have something totally crushing and huge.
“Blood Mantra” is the most heavy and mature album we ever did in our carrier. I cannot wait to start to play songs live because riffs are soo deep and powerful.”
You can check out the album’s cover art after the break.

Man Must Die has released a lyric video for their new track “Slave To The Animal.” This track was written and recorded for the MMA fighter Dustin Graber, AKA Waterfall.
