Tennessee titans Yautja are set to release their vicious new EP, Songs of Lament, early next month via Forcefield Records.

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.
Norwegian grindcore outfit Beaten to Death have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Unplugged, via Invisible Oranges. The new track is a two-minute onslaught titled “Knulleviser for Barn”, which unleashes bellowing bass lines and down-tuned dissonance in abundance. It will rip the skin from your face, and that’s a positive thing. Bassist Mika Matinussen commented on the new tune:
“The track is about major pop artists writing songs about love making (knulling), ignoring the fact that most of their fans are children (barn). Hits for kids? Knulleviser for barn.”
Check out the track now.
Unplugged will be released on October 9 via Mas-Kina Recordings. Pre-order here.
