I fell out of touch with Wretched a few years ago, but based on how they are sounding now, I might be back in. The band will be releasing their new album Cannibal in June and to go along with this announcement, the band is currently streaming a rad new track (shall I say tasty?) called “Morsel.” After the jump you can check out a wildly insane animated video to accompany the track. It’s killer. Check it: Continue reading
Arch Enemy will release their new album, their first with their new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz (formerly of The Agonist) in early June and the band has a new lyric video for the song “As The Pages Burn.” I think this track is pretty cool, but I do agree with HBIH, I think Alissa is doing exactly what Angela did for all of those years. He voice has a lot of promise and it’s not being fully executed. Anyway, not my choice.
Check out the track: Continue reading
Finnish melodic death metal outfit, Insomnium, have premiered their sixth full length album, Shadows of The Dying Sun, over at Metal Sucks. The album is officially out today via Century Media, and you can still purchase your copy at this location. While you’re spending your hard-earned money, stream this record here.
Furiosity is the name of the game and a ton of bands play it. The fraction of those bands who both play it and play it interesting enough to keep my attention are bands who earn my respect, especially if I have never heard of said band before. Such is the case with Nux Vomica, who I have only learned of recently. This is a band that creates pissed off, crusty music and isn’t one-and-done in less than ninety seconds. I mean, the first song on the bands new record is seconds away from being twenty minutes in length. Continue reading
Legendary Swedish melodic death metal outfit At The Gates haven’t released a new album since 1995′s classic Slaughter Of The Soul, which is arguably one of the greatest albums of all time. What am I saying? That’s not arguable at all. It is one of the greatest albums of all time. Anyway, At The Gates have released a thirteen-second video clip for… Something new.
What is it? Well, after pausing the video at the EXACT right moment (pictured above) you can make out what are unmistakably lyrics. I did some quick Googling and came up with absolutely nothing. So I think it’s pretty obvious what this could be: At The Gates are working on new material. FUCK YES! Check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
Children Of Bodom, who I was a fan of for a hot minute but kinda fell out of touch with over the last few years, released their new album Halo Of Blood last year and the band has now unleashed a lyric video for the albums title track. I find it strange when bands release lyric videos so long after the release of the album. You’d think everyone who cares about the album probably already knows the lyrics.
Regardless, check out the video after the jump. Continue reading
The legendary Carcass made headline after headline with the release of their long-awaited, highly anticipated new album Surgical Steel and now the band has unleashed a new music video! The video is for the track “Unfit For Human Consumption” and it is… Weird? No, that’s not the right word. Freaky? Closer. I’m not sure how I feel about the video, but you can figure it out for yourself. Check it out after the jump. Continue reading
I like Jungle Rot. I do. Earlier this year the band released their latest album Terror Regime and I stated that it was my favorite album they have done in a long time and now the band has unleashed the music video for their track “Ruthless Omnipotence.” You can check the video out after the jump.
I like this track a lot, but the video, I’m not crazy about. The whole “band-walking-through-the-streets-while-the-vocalist-screams” comes off pretty cheesy when it’s not a hardcore or punk band doing it. Still, check it out. The track rips regardless if you’re into the video or not. Continue reading
I don’t know if anyone else had to Google to term “Zochrot” after listening to the rad new Carcass jam by the same name, but I did. I had no idea what it meant, but apparently it is an Israeli non-profit organization that promotes awareness of the Nakba. What is the Nakba? It was the 1948 Palestinian expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinians from their homes.
Well, that took some time and I listened to the new Carcass B-Side (which is available via Decibel Magazine Flexi Disc) twice just looking into the subject. I guess that means it’s a really killer track. You can stream the track below and see if you’re feeling it. Also be sure to check out Lane’s review of the album here. Continue reading
The four years Nine Inch Nails fans had to wait for a new album is nothing compared to what Carcass fans had to endure. The devoted cult of the highly influential British death metal act had to wait a daunting seventeen years for a new full length record. The aforementioned sixth full length record is Surgical Steel; the first taste of new Carcass since 1996′s Swansong. Just like all albums bands release after a lengthy hiatus, there is a lot of pressure on Surgical Steel and Carcass in general. But one listen to this new forty-seven minute cataclysmic beast and you will question if the band had even went away at all.
The highly anticipated new record from Carcass, Surgical Steel, is due out on September 17th and the band is adding to the hype with the release of another cut from the forthcoming outing. The Gauntlet have premiered the new song “Unfit for Human Consumption”, a track that stabs deep and twists and twists. It hurts so good. Head over to The Gauntlet now to stream this bad boy!
Agrimonia is a genus of a species of herbaceous flowering plants that sprout beautiful golden yellow flowers. The Gothenberg based band of the same name sprouts nothing of the sort. Instead of golden yellow flowers, you get blistering fifteen minute metal passages on a relentless path to crush you. Agrimonia’s third full length record Rites of Separation will test your endurance and not because the track’s are long, but because the tracks are so powerful you may not be able to take it all in at once. They’re certainly more enthralling than a perennial plant.
Well, damn me. 2013 seems to keep churning out releases by bands that I have never liked before that blow me away. First with Bleed From Within (review here), then IWABO (review here) and now I’m pretty intrigued with new music from Fit For An Autopsy. Like the aforementioned bands, I have never been into this band, only listening to a few tracks and thinking they were kind of ‘meh.’
I am currently on my fifth listen to the bands new track “Still We Destroy,” which the band has just released in the form of a lyric video and I gotta say, it’s pretty rad. I though these dudes were weak deathcore, but I will say I was very far off. You can check out the new track after the jump. Enjoy. Continue reading
Not too long ago I told you about Evocation and their (soon to be released) new EP Excised And Anatomised which is a covers album. The album features fantastic renditions of tracks by the greats At The Gates, Napalm Death and more. The band has unleashed the first cover from the album and what is it you ask? Continue reading
Progressive tech thrashers Revocation are currently streaming an all new track entitled “Fracked” off of their upcoming epic fourth full length, the self-titled Revocation, exclusively over at Loudwire. The anti-fracking anthem is definitely my favorite of the teased tracks so far, a more sustained and expansive track that treads along a more progressive inclination, boasting some almost electronic sounding complimentary basswork and an epic solo section. Musings aside, you can stream “Fracked” via Loudwire here and pre-order Revocation via Relapse Records here, out August 6th. Be sure to catch Revocation on the remaining dates of this year’s excellent Summer Slaughter tour.
