Brooklyn Vegan have premiered the opening track from Tiger Flowers’ full length debut, Dead Hymns, which is out on April 6th via Melotov Records. The track is entitled “Batesian Mimicry” and it showcases Tiger Flowers’ ability to pummel you with noisy, rhythmically bastardizing riffs, as well as craft post-hardcore-esque melodies. Basically, the song hurts oh so good. Head over to Brooklyn Vegan to check it out now.

Even before the release of their debut LP, Songs of Descent, Nashville, TN’s Yautja were already being lauded as the next greatest band in heavy music. Now that the record has had a chance to see the light of day, that assertion seems legit. Featuring members of Coliseum, Gnarwhal, Nameless Cults and others, Yautja amalgamate death metal and grind with intense, discordant hardcore and infuse it with elements of sludge and crust. Filled with crushing drum patterns, distorted low-end grooves, explosive guitar lines and gnarled vocals, Songs of Descent is simply captivating.
In this interview with American Aftermath, vocalist/guitarist Shibby Poole and drummer/vocalist Tyler Coburn discussed the album and how Yautja came to be, as well as their diverse sound, which they like to call “Heavy Metal Thunder.” Continue reading
