CONVERGE Release New Music Video

ConvergeConverge, easily one of the best bands of all time, released their highly-appreciated All We Love We Leave Behind and blew everyone away. It’s been more than two years since the album was release, but the band has just released a music video for “Precipice” and the albums title track “All We Love We Leave Behind” jointly.

The video is a beautiful representation of something that I don’t understand. I love the video, but I don’t understand what’s going on. Check out the video after the jump.     Continue reading

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY Announce New Vocalist “#NatesFuckingOut”

FFAA2014Up until the release of their latest album Hellbound, I didn’t care about Fit For An Autopsy, but this new album was an awe-inspiring leap forward for FFAA. Never before had I heard them sound so tight and powerful. Well, according to the band, they have been “Nate Johnsoned.” What the hell does that mean? It means that their vocalist, Nate Johnson, up and left the band “at the worst possible time.” Read more after the jump.      Continue reading

DARKEST HOUR Streaming FLORENCE + THE MACHINE Cover

flo plus machineRemember when I told you about that Florence + The Machine covers album that Sumerian Records is putting out? Well, a few more tracks have been released from the album, but only one that I really care about. Darkest Hour has unleashed their cover of “Spectrum” and it’s pretty fantastic. Alongside Darkest Hour, Ben Bruce from Asking Alexandria and Miss Fortune have released their covers for Sumerian Ceremonials: Florence + The Sphinx – A Tribute To Florence + The Machine.

Check out the covers after the jump, but if you only want to listen to Darkest Hour, I understand.     Continue reading

“Punk Goes ’90s, Vol. 2″ Now Streaming

Why are none of these punk bands?
Why are none of these punk bands?

So, I’ve listened to all of the Punk Goes… series of compilations because they are usually hilariously bad so of course when I found out they were releasing the sequel to Punk Goes ’90s, I was stoked to hear all these terrible bands cover songs I grew up on. To be honest, I was shocked that some of these covers aren’t half bad. Asking Alexandria‘s take on Nine Inch Nails‘ “Closer” was close to spot on for a bit as was Motionless In White‘s cover of Rammstein‘s “Du Hast.” Other songs, such as Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! covering “All Star” by Smash Mouth and Falling In Reverse‘s “Gangsta’s Paradise” were just laughable.

You can stream the entire compilation after the jump. Or don’t. Now I’m just waiting for the next Punk Goes Crunk or Punk Goes Pop. So much shitty music, so little time.      Continue reading

BLEED FROM WITHIN Crowdfunding New EP

BFWBleed From Within, who released one of the raddest albums I listened to last year, Uprising, have announced that they will be crowdfunding a new EP. Although the band is still signed to Century Media Records, this release is being promoted as a one-off independent release that will help make the fans of BFW more hands on with the release of an album.

The EP will feature two completely new tracks and two cover songs. One cover song will be chosen by the band as a song that influenced them and the other cover will be voted on by the listener. The band has set a £8,000 goal for the project (which comes to a little more than $13,300USD). Sounds like a lot, but I think BFW might just pull it off. Check out their Indiegogo pitch after the jump.     Continue reading

CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE Stream Cover Of “Natural Born Killaz”

conducting-from-the-grave-6Metalcore act Conducting From The Grave have done something that many have done before and I almost always find it enjoyable: they’ve covered a rap song. Conducting From The Grave have released their cover of Dr. Dre & Ice Cube‘s “Natural Born Killaz” and it’s pretty great. I have no idea if this was for a release or just for fun, but I’m into it. Check out the lyric video after the jump, homie.     Continue reading

PERIPHERY And STICK TO YOUR GUNS And More Cover FLORENCE + THE MACHINE

florence-and-the-machineWell, Sumerian Records has always been a slightly-left-of-center-thinking label and I guess the announcement of their new compilation stand by that. Sumerian Records and their artists are putting together a compilation in tribute to Florence + The Machine. Bands like Periphery, Stick To Your Guns and more have signed on for the compilation and a few tracks have been released already. Click on over after the jump to get a taste of Sumerian Ceremonials: Florence + The Sphinx.

KILLWHITNEYDEAD Streaming New Track “Replicate To Survive”

kwdI’ve been disappointed by the latest Killwhitneydead material I’ve heard off of the bands new album Suffer My Wrath mostly because it’s not the Killwhitneydead I fell in love with all of those years ago. I mean, somethings just shouldn’t be tampered with. Well, the band has released another new track which I don’t hate as much as some of the other tracks they have released off of Suffer My Wrath. The song is called “Replicate To Survive” and you can check it out after the jump. It features guest vocals from the singer of Vanisher (although I am not familiar with them). Check it.     Continue reading

DEVIL YOU KNOW Streaming New Song “Seven Years Alone”

devilyouknow2013_638Well, I can’t say I haven’t been curious as to what the band consisting of former Killswitch Engage/Blood Has Been Shed vocalist Howard Jones, All Shall Perish‘s Francesco Artusato and Devolved drummer John Sankey would sound like. I have. The band, called Devil You Know, have unveiled the lead single off of their forthcoming album The Beauty Of Destruction, titled “Seven Years Alone” and it’s pretty great. Check out the track after the jump and weigh in in the comments.     Continue reading

AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE Streaming New Track

TripleBurtalAlbumCoverUnlocked_zps8d4ead48Well, it seems like the threat of a prison sentence isn’t keeping As I Lay Dying/Austrian Death Machine main man Tim Lambesis down. Here on American Aftermath we haven’t been following all of the drama surrounding the guy because (for the most part) we prefer to stick to music news and not rely on all of the bullshit to get page views.

Anyway, Austrian Death Machine will apparently still be releasing its new record Triple Brutal and a new song has been issued. Check out the track after the jump. Or don’t. It’s not great, I don’t think. Whatever.     Continue reading

DEMON HUNTER Release Lyric Video For “I Will Fail You”

Demonhunter2Yeah, I’m about ready to give up on this Demon Hunter record, but something keep bringing me back to it. I am going to withhold full judgement until I hear the album in full, but it’s not sounding like something I’m going to enjoy. The band has released a lyric video for their song “I Will Fail You,” which you can hear after the jump. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just something I would have expected to hear… I don’t know, ten years ago. Check it out and see what you think.      Continue reading

THE OVERSEER Streaming New Track “Paper Thin Houses”

The-Overseer-Rest-and-Let-Go-coverI’m really digging this band The Overseer. I posted about them a few days ago and I’m continuing to dig into them more and more. The band has just unleashed a rad new track called “Paper Thin Houses” that is a great homage to earlier Solid State releases. It’s just great. Check out the track after the jump.     Continue reading
