Born in the Year of Our Lord 2007 in the town of Idaho Falls melodic metallic hardcore quintet Outlet prepare to bequeath to the world the follow up to their acclaimed 2009 EP “Broken Is The Man, Vital Are The Missing Parts”. Consisting of 6 songs and spanning over 30 minutes the new EP “Memento Mori” contains in it just as emotion as it does math or heaviness, though it has plenty of all three. Slated for a Spring ’15 release in digital and physical formats on Glory Kid Ltd. “Memento Mori” marks a milestone in the development of Outlet as such innovations as the conservative use of clean, melodic, vocals and a light math influence are incorporated by the band, always in a subtle way.
Continue on after the break for a sample of Outlet’s maturation as a band in the form of their new song “Mortal Coil”. Streaming right now over at New Noise Magazine.

Lucky fuck. You can check out the video below. It’s rad. Enjoy. Continue reading →
Warsawwasraw‘s debut full length, Sensitizer, came seemingly out of nowhere this year. I was not aware of the French duo’s existence until Three One G label head Justin Pearson (of The Locust/Retox) shared their track “Hollowcost” on various social media outlets. As if the whole “chaotic hardcore” genre couldn’t get more…chaotic. The instrumentation is fast and intense beyond measure. The drumming is furious and bludgeoning. The guitars churn out riffs that are extremely complex, noisy and vicious. Sensitizer is a whirlwind of auditory insanity that aims to distance itself from being just another album that simply echoes the work of Botch or Converge. In short, the album is a good kick in the ass. I recently got in touch with the two masterminds behind Warsawwasraw to discuss the album and more.

Holy fuck. Check it out after the jump. As of now, no more on future ID material is available. Continue reading →
As everyone knows (sadly), The Chariot called it quits after a ten year run in 2013. This broke millions of hearts and shattered minds, but we remained positive.

Check out Forget Not after the jump. Rest In Pizza. Continue reading →
Oakland, California based avant-metal act Dimesland have premiered a new track from their forthcoming full length, Psychogenic Atrophy, over at Stereogum. The track, entitled “Dying Foretold”, is three minutes of disjunctive, noisy and complex riffs that contort and spiral about with the goal of psychological damage in mind. Stream the track for yourself at Stereogum now.
Psychogenic Atrophy will be released on December 9th. Stream another new track, “Are They Cannibals?”, after the break.
Icelandic mathcore quartet Muck have announced that they have found a new label home with Prosthetic Records. The band will release their forthcoming album, Your Joyous Future, through the aforementioned label in February. The band issued the following statement regard the signing:
“We’re super-excited about being a part of the Prosthetic roster. Having the support of such a bad-ass label will help us move to the next level as a band. Our new album was recorded live in our studio and we feel like it really captures the energy that we’re about. It’s a punk album, and it hits pretty hard. 2015 is our year. Get ready.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan have been teamed up with rapper Jarren Benton for a Converse compilation titled Cons EP Vol. 2, which sounds to me like a revamped version of Judgement Night.
