King Giant will release their new album Black Ocean Waves in June and the band has released a lyric video for their new track “Red Skies.” I really love this track, first off. Secondly, the lyric video is strange, not really what I expect to see in 2015, but whatayagonnado? You can check out the video after the jump and see if you dig the track as much as I do. Enjoy.

Swedish death metal horde Entrails have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Obliteration, over at Bloody Disgusting. The new track is the menacing and undoubtedly heavy (obviously) “Midnight Coffin”, whose riffs lash out like the claws of some beast of apocalyptic-proportions spawned from the caverns of Hell. Listeners are sure to headbang until their brain flies out of their skull. Check it out for yourself at this location.

Salt Lake City, UT project Team Dead have released their stellar debut EP, titled Whale Bones and Tin Foil, today (April 21). Featuring guitarist Chris Clement (ex-Gaza, Bird Eater, Day of Less, Pilot This Plane Down), the band offer up a jarring maelstrom of sludge-infused hardcore/mathcore, combining dissonant tones and angular guitar work with super heavy rhythms and bleak vibes. In this American Aftermath interview, Clement discusses Team Dead’s inception, the making of Whale Bones and Tin Foil, the EP’s stunning artwork and more. Continue reading
Seattle doom duo Bell Witch have premiered their upcoming album, Four Phantoms, over at Noisey. The album will officially be released on April 28 via Profound Lore and can be purchased here.

Swedish act Broken Cross are prepping the release of their debut album Through Light To Night and the band has released a new track titled “Forsaken Existence.” It’s a strange brand of heaviness that I am not super familiar with but it is interesting.

Loveable rockers at Fight Amp will release their highly anticipated new record Constantly Off in June and the band has given us a sickeningly sweet taste of said album in the form of “Ex Everything.” This track is fuzzy, feedback-laden and fucking gorgeous.

Germany’s Valborg have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Romantik, over at Decibel. The new track is the seven-minute, lurching “Comtesse”, which combines bleak, creeping funeral doom aesthetics with ambient synths and harsh, scraping vocals. Think Type O Negative, but stranger. Head over to Decibel to check out the track now.
Romantik will be released on May 19 on CD and digitally and on vinyl on June 16, via Temple of Torturous.
Californian technical death metal outfit WRVTH (formerly Wrath of Vesuvius) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming self-titled album over at No Clean Singing. The new track, titled “Harrowing Winds”, builds from controlled melodic buildings into no-holds barred, spiraling madness in no time at all. Even in its most chaotic, intricate moments, the song retains a sense of melody and even plays with serene post-rock elements during its icy interludes. You can check out the track for yourself after the break along with the band’s forthcoming touring schedule.
WRVTH will be released on June 16.
