Out of the blue, Greensboro, NC grindcore/crust unit Torch Runner have returned, along with details for their upcoming sophomore LP, Endless Nothing, which if the debut single “Godlust” is any sign, signals only an amplification of brutalistic quality for the group.

Italian death metal outfit Hideous Divinity (ex-Hour of Penance, ex-Ghouls) have announced the release of their second full length record. The new record, which was record at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studios (Fleshgod Apocalypse, etc), will be entitled Cobra Verde and will be released on October 27th (U.K.), 28th (U.S.) and 31st in the rest of Europe. The band issued the following statement regarding the pending release:
“Cobra Verde is no ordinary album. We entered Stefano ‘Saul’ Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studios for the second time, knowing we could get the best only going to the best. We pushed Saul and he did the same with us: we struggled, argued, started from scratch numerous times. The result was hard to reach but in the end no one could say anything but, ‘THIS is it.’ Drums and vocals were entirely performed and recorded in the studio, while guitars were pre-recorded and reamped by Saul using a combination of Peavey Triple XXX and Mesa Dual Rectifier. Bass was also pre-recorded and re-amped. Prepare for the slavery of the human heart.”
You can check out the album’s cover art and drummer Giulio Galati playing through selections from the album after the break.
