It may just be me, but Heaven Shall Burn‘s new album Veto is shaping up to be a killer record. The few tracks I have heard from the album are 100% Heaven Shall Burn in fashion, which is something I am a huge fan of. I have loved this band ever since I acquired their split with Caliban back in the day and I have loved each of their albums thus far in the game. I pray that Veto doesn’t let me down.

Fucking Arsis are back, son. I tore myself away from a night of listening to some nice, smooth R&B to listen to a new track from the Virginian destroyers and I was very pleased. This new track comes in the form of a lyric video for the Unwelcome title track and it’s a brutal, thrashing beast. You can check out the video below and, if it rustles your jimmies, you can pick up Arsis‘ new record on April 30th via Nuclear Blast Records. Continue reading »

I’m a little behind on my posting about music videos lately. So let’s just hop right into this one, eh? The two videos I’m talking about in this post are the new one from Fleshgod Apocalypse and Arsis. I really enjoy bands making good music videos that are enjoyable to watch. Especially if the tracks they are going with are top-notch tracks. Let’s start with Fleshgod Apocalypse, who have released an… Interesting video for their track “The Forsaking.” Continue reading »
In an amazing turn of events, the gargantuan prog deathcore and self-denominated “aliencore” group, Rings of Saturn, have decided to begin streaming their long awaited sophomore effort, Dingir, now! The expected November 20th album has begun stream as a result of a culmination of reasons summarized here: a) legal issues have actually barred the group from releasing the album till February 5th, b)a poor quality leak of the album has been passed widely around the internet and the group do not want an inaccurate opinion to be based off of that release and c)hell, it’s about damn time. Exploding onto the scene with their mind numbing and organ eviscerating debut album, Embryonic Anomaly, Rings Of Saturn hit hard with their wide array of hooks, sweeps, and straight extraterrestrial atmosphere and now they are fucking back. For those of you familiar with the Alien film series, consider Dingir to be the “Aliens” to the group’s catalog, the sonic equivalent of that awesome 1986 gore soaked, pun filled, and ass kicking sequel. Stream the album in full high quality below and feel free to pass the word around. Expect pre-orders late Winter from Unique Leader Records. Continue reading »
Sometime in June, Jeff Loomis’s(Nevermore) touring rhythm guitarist, Jeff Nurre, spoke to Metalsucks about a collaboration between himself, Loomis, and producer Aaron Smith(7 Horns 7 Eyes), a collaboration created with the intent to record some more death metal oriented tracks together. The Metalsucks sponsored Intrinsic tour brought that reality to a live context and now, that reality is situated within the confines of a well-produced, mastered, and finished audio file. Featuring all the current members of Loomis’s touring band, “A Liar’s Chain” is essentially a melodic death metal song bolstered by Loomis’s signature groovy and technical playing style. Here’s what Loomis had to say on the subject:
I had so much fun recording ’Surrender’ with Ihsahn on vocals for my last solo album that I wanted to do more songs like that.
Joe Nurre, who has been playing guitar in my band for the last year or so, has a pretty killer death metal voice, so I thought it would be perfect to do some more stuff like this with him as well as the rest of the guys.
According to Metalsucks, Loomis and Co. have about two more songs in tow in the vein of this style and as of yet, have only plans to release these tracks digitally. Check out a stream of “A Liar’s Chain” exclusively via Metal Hammer Germany below. Thanks to Metalsucks for the heads up.
Have you, like me, been waiting ridiculously for new Dethklok music? Of course you have! Why wouldn’t you? Dethklok are one of the gnarliest virtual bands ever. I posted about the band recently and now I am back to let you all know that The ‘Klok are streaming the first track off of their new album and it’s called “I Ejaculate Fire.” Yeah. Killer title for a killer track. If this tells us anything about Dethalbum III I am going to shit myself when this thing comes out on October 16th. Check out the track below and let us know what you think.
So, after all of the teasing and taunting over the last few months, Dethklok, the virtual band and stars of Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, will be releasing their long-awaited third album on October 16th. I don’t know about you fucks, but I am very excited about this album. I am a big Dethklok fan and I love the show, so when I got word that this album was so close, I nearly shat myself. Stoked. Check out an older track and track list after the jump and get yourself pumped for The Dethalbum III. Also be sure to grab Brendan Small’s Galaktikon‘s debut release which is out now.

When it comes to the landscape of the sound that is modern metal, there are only a few names that I can think of, but at the top of the list for me comes one musician, and that is Jeff Loomis. His guitar work is pretty much the stuff of legend in my book, and his time with Nevermore has brought forth some incredible songs and moments. But seeing as how that phase of his career is behind him, its only best he returns to his solo work and with Plains Of Oblivion, he continues his path into greatness.
I like Caliban. I remember first hearing them on their first split with Heaven Shall Burn and thinking they were pretty sick. Of course, I was a huge Heaven Shall Burn fan and Caliban used to sound a lot like them. In the past few years the band has found a sound all their own, same genre but they have expanded and made their own way. The band is preparing to release their new album I Am Nemesis on February 3rd and are currently giving away a song off of the album for free. The track is called “Dein R3Ich” and it’s pretty damn good. Not bad at all. Check out the track below and download it here.
Good morning, folks. How are we all feeling today? Good, I hope. If you listen to extreme metal than you most likely know of Dethklok, the animated metal band from the hit Cartoon Network show Metalocalypse. I fucking love this show, so of course I am a fan of the band. Lately I have been listening to my Dethalbum II vinyl that I got a while back and it has reminded me why I like the band so much. Smooth and heavy melo-death with lyrics that cannot be anything but loved. So, yeah. I’ve chosen Dethklok for my mourning playlist. Enjoy.
