Dude, Ævangelist are so sick. Check out the new track below. Continue reading
Technical brutal death metal outfit Repulsive Dissection have released a new track from their upcoming record, Church of the Five Precious Wounds, which is due out on October 1 via Sevared Records. The new track, titled “Apostasy (Ideological Dysphagia)”, closes out the new album with a furious display of mind-altering savagery. The instrumentation blends tech death complexity and mauling, gore-soaked riffs while gurgling vocals add a much needed portion of vileness to the mix. Check out the song after the break.

Californian progressive death metal outfit Arkaik have announced the release of their third full-length album. The album will be titled Lucid Dawn and will be released on October 30 via Unique Leader. Engineered, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, etc), Lucid Dawn will feature 10 new tracks and guest appearances by Trevor Strnad and Ryan Knight of The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as Bay Are live string quartet, Amaranth. Lucid Dawn is the second installment in a series of concept albums revolving around Cyrix, a disillusioned character in a dystopian society. In Cyrix’s world, dreaming is systematically controlled by a tyrannical ruler named Khaal-Li-Phar and his army of dark shamans, where people are forced to build monuments to the tyrant to stifle their imaginations and inhibit their ability to achieve a multi-dimensional existence. Lucid Dawn is a death metal take on American mythologist, writer and lecturer, Joseph Campbell’s monomyth, and the beginning of Cyrix’s “Hero’s Journey.”
The album’s artwork, track listing and Arkaik‘s upcoming tour dates can be found below.
I started posting about Cruciamentum back in 2011 when I got into bands such as them, Grave Miasma and Father Befouled. That run of crushing old school death metal in the 21st century was game changing for me. I love all of these bands and I will go out on a limb and say that Cruciamentum have the best death metal album of 2015 under their belts right now. Charnal Passages is an unrelenting beast. Don’t believe me? You’re wrong. Stream the album below and get learned. Continue reading
