Blackened grindcore heathens Anaal Nathrakh will be releasing their new record, their first for new label Metal Blade Records, and the band has unleashed their beastly new track “Monstrum In Animo” over on Decibel.

Philadelphia grinders Die Choking have premiered a new track form their forthcoming sophomore EP, II, over at CVLT Nation. The track happens to be the rapidfire closing track, “Tonsil”, whose lyrics are dedicated to Jahi McMath; a young girl from Oakland, California who was declared brain-dead last year but is still being kept on life-support. Bassist/vocalist Paul J. Herzog elaborates:
“This song is a dedication to the memory of Jahi McMath who died on December 12th 2013. Despite the absolute, irreversible nature of brain death she (as far as I know) remains on ‘life’ support. The controversy of this is obvious but my interest is geared more towards the broader subject of CHOICE in regards to medical treatment during end of life scenarios. It is unfortunate, but families often contradict explicit wishes of dying loved ones. The severe and painful nature of pursuing a ‘do everything you can’ mentality is dire to say the least. This, to me, is pure tragedy. My goal is to open the dialogue a bit and introduce a tool to communicate the questions one needs to ask should they or a loved one be in a life threatening or life ending circumstance. Most people WILL end up THERE and not simply die in their sleep nor arrive to a facility DOA.”
Each 7″ edition of II will come with a document that will serve as a legal, Living Will. You can check out that document after the break and be sure to stream “Tonsil” over at CVLT Nation.
II will be released on September 29th via The Compound. Pre-orders can be placed here.
Baseball grinders Puig Destroyer have just unleashed yet another amazing track from their forthcoming debut full-length. This time around, the band has premiered the track “Batflip” which is a loud, slower jam that absolutely kills. Clocking in at just over a minute, this is possibly my favorite track I’ve heard thus far off of the bands forthcoming record. Check out the track after the jump or get blasted. Continue reading
Audio terrorists Full Of Hell are currently streaming “Gordian Knot”, the first cut off of their upcoming collaborative LP with renown Japanese noise artist Merzbow, exclusively over at Noisey. Delivering on the band’s promise to continue to push their aural boundaries to further realms of harshness and inaccessibility, the new track deters away from the band’s groovier dark hardcore beginnings in place of a newer adherence to the rasp of death metal and grindcore, a direction the full album is due to pursue. Stream “Gordian Knot” via Noisey here along with an interview with vocalist Dylan Walker on the band’s new alliance with label Profound Lore, commentary on the development of the new album as well as information on the second bonus album included exclusively with the CD version of the band’s upcoming LP.

My favorite French-Canadian grinders Fuck The Facts will be releasing their new Abandoned EP in October and the band has unveiled a monstrous new track titled “L’impasse” and you’ve got to hear this shit.

Check out the new track after the jump and get blasted, fool. Continue reading

We here at American Aftermath love baseball-themed grindcore outfit Puig Destroyer and with that, we are excited about the bands forthcoming full-length. The band has just unleashed a badass new track for all to hear and it’s called “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team.” If I’m not mistaken, the band has no issues with fantasy football, but they are all tired of hearing about teams relentlessly.

Out of the blue, Greensboro, NC grindcore/crust unit Torch Runner have returned, along with details for their upcoming sophomore LP, Endless Nothing, which if the debut single “Godlust” is any sign, signals only an amplification of brutalistic quality for the group. Due out September 30th via Southern Lord Records, Endless Nothing is an effort “reaching new depths of auditory violence”, according to the group’s press release. As the evidence stands so far, I believe it. Check out the new track “Godlust” along with full album artwork and tracklistings for Endless Nothing below.
