I used to be huge into Six Feet Under, as Cannibal Corpse is one of my all-time favorite bands, but in the last few years I have kinda fallen out of interest. The band is still good, but there is so much music out there, I haven’t had the time. The bands new album however, is starting to sound pretty sweet. See for yourself. Check out the bands first track from their new album Crypt Of The Devil. The track is titled “Stab.” Crush. Continue reading
Italian blackened doom outfit Forgotten Tomb have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Hurt Yourself and the Ones You Love, over at Steel for Brains.

Stream the beast for yourself at this location.
Hurt Yourself and the Ones You Love will be released on April 17 (Europe) and April 21 (North America) via Agonia Records.
Midwest blackened death/grind hybrids Immortal Bird have announced the release of their debut full-length and follow up to their 2013 Akrasia EP. Titled Empress/Abscess, the five-track album was recorded with Pete Grossmann (Weekend Nachos, etc) and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston. The EP will feature a guest appearance by John Hoffman of Weekend Nachos and will see drummer/vocalist Rae Amitay switching to a full-time position as vocalist. She elaborates:
“I’ve stepped away from drumming duties and enlisted our live drummer, Garry Naples (Novembers Doom). Essentially, I had to set my ego aside and determine what was going to be the best for this music. [Guitarist] Evan [Berry] and I wrote some incredibly challenging material for Empress/Abscess, and Garry had been playing it live for months, whereas I’d been focusing a lot of my drumming energy on the newest Thrawsunblat album. My chops are in a very different place than they were when we recorded Akrasia and it would take me a week in the studio to do what Garry can accomplish in two days. Having him behind the kit saved us time, the finished product is stronger, and I was able to delve into the vocal performances and lyrics with my undivided attention. Will I play drums on future Immortal Bird albums? It’s entirely likely, but for Empress/Abscess, I passed the sticks over to the best person for the job.”
An official release date is still pending, but Empress/Abscess is expected to drop sometime in June. The band will also be embarking on their “Western Migration” tour later this month. Those dates can be found after the break.

Iconic New York death metal titans Skinless have announced the release of their fifth full-length record and follow-up to 2006’s Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead. The new album will bear the title Only The Ruthless Remain and will be released on May 29 (Germany/Benelux), June 1 (UK/world) and June 2 (North America) through Relapse Records (pre-order here). The new record was captured by Tom Chase at Edie Road Studio and Doomsday Bunker Studio, both in upstate New York, with vocals tracked by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Primitive Man etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Integrity, etc) and Audiosiege in Portland. On the upcoming effort, guitarist Noah Carpenter comments:
“We worked really hard on this record and I hope you guys soil your diapers repeatedly when you hear it. We think it’s the most well-rounded Skinless album yet; from the song writing to the production, the artwork, and the layout, it’s the real deal. Get your beers and toilet paper ready.”
Vocalist Sherwood Webber adds:
“Gallons of brew slammed and oceans of blood spilled, we’re back sicker than ever. This is a dark, immense slab of death metal. May the brutal party commence again until Only The Ruthless Remain!”

Gruesome (Exhumed, etc) have premiered their eponymous new track from their upcoming debut full-length, Savage Land, over at Noisey. “Gruesome”, as promised, is another throwback to old school death metal with its rampaging, blood-soaked instrumentation. On the track, guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey comments:
“Okay, full confession: I always wanted to be in a band that had an eponymous song, like Iron Maiden or Angel Witch. It’s the kind of thing you really need to do on your first album, though. With ‘Gruesome,’ I felt like it was the right thing to do. It’s almost like a mission statement, and since, ‘sounds exactly like ‘87-’91 Death’ doesn’t really roll off the tongue, I figured ‘Gruesome’ would work. It was one of the last songs we wrote for the album and it’s definitely one of my favorites. The lyrics are kind of a Cliff’s Notes on Scream Bloody Gore, from the burning bodies of ‘Infernal Death’ in the first verse to the zombie army of SBG’s title track in the last one. Anyway, I think it’s one of the better tunes we came up with and I hope you agree.”
Check out the track over at Noisey now.
Savage Land will be released on April 17 (Germany, Benelux, Finland), April 20 (UK/world) and April 21 (North America). Pre-orders can be placed here.
