Los Angeles post-hardcore trio Ghostlimb (Graf Orlock, etc) have premiered a new track from their upcoming fifth full-length album, Difficult Loves, at Brooklyn Vegan. Titled “Treason Fluently”, the new track barrels froward with grinding rhythms that collide head-on with triumphant post-hardcore melodies and metalcore adjacent riffs. The band’s own Justin Smith (Graf Orlock) commented on the upcoming album:
I feel like Difficult Loves is the most developed in what we have sought to do over the last ten years. True to form, it is about history, politics, and environmental stuff but it brings in a lot more from the literary realm. The title of the record is from an Italo Calvino book. It is about glimpses into normal peoples’ lives – more about capturing a feeling than being a crusader of some dialectical change.”
Check out the track here and view the album’s artwork and track listing after the break.
Difficult Loves will be released on February 5, 2016 via Vitriol Records.

One of my favorite grindcore releases of 2015 comes from Organ Dealer, who unleash total hell all over Visceral Infection.

After performing a special reunion set at this year’s “Don’t Call It a Fest” in Detroit, Michigan math grinders See You Next Tuesday have announced they are officially back together. The band’s statement is as follows:
Tennessee titans Yautja are set to release their vicious new EP, Songs of Lament, early next month via Forcefield Records. We’ve already got our first taste of the seven-track follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Descent with the blistering “Breed Regret”. Now, we here at American Aftermath are beyond stoked to bring you your next helping of Yautja goodness. Behold “Thankful; Appalled”, a 77 second whirlwind of mangled madness. Furious riffs, rife with dissonance and grime, rush out of a cloud of piercing feedback and aim for the throat with open jaws. In short, it’s heavy as hell. Check it out for yourself after the break.
Songs of Lament will be released on October 13. Pre-order here (CD/LP) or here (cassette).
