Initially featured in a prior Aftermath Straight To The Point review, the young forebears of “Pittsburgh Heavy Shit” in Killing Thing have bestowed onto American Aftermath the opportunity to unveil their latest step into aural brutality. Following a demo, an EP and track appearances on a split and compilation (download it all free here!), the chaotic hardcore quartet have returned, armed with a new vocalist and drummer and ready to enter the modern metallic hardcore revival lexicon with a new EP due out soon on Head2Wall Records, of which the video for the first track is featured below. Directed by Tyler Long (Run, Forever and Black Mask) and recorded by Dave Rosenstraus (of Hounds of Hate and Pissed Jeans fame), “Derision” brandishes a brash, greater 90s metallic hardcore centered sound whilst underplaying but not completely abandoning the group’s groovy beatdown, which comes exemplified in the best way in the last seconds of the minute and forty crusher. As for the video, bloody, live and simple. Stream “Derision” below and be sure to catch Killing Thing on their Midwest stomp, details also below. Continue reading
German act Callejon released their new album Wir Sind Angst today and they are currently streaming the album in full. If I know one thing, it’s that Germans know how to create some killer metalcore. Heavenshallburn, Caliban and now Callejon. I would definitely rank the latter band with the former two because they are that good. Check out the full stream of Wir Sind Angst below and be sure to pick up your copy today. Continue reading
I know for certain that Lane and I are super stoked for 36 Crazyfists to release their new album and, to pump you up for the album, the band has released a music video for their song “Also Am I.” The album comes out in the middle of next month, but getting this taste has set me off. I cannot wait to hear more. Check out the video for “Also Am I” over on Metal Injection.
No Bragging Rights released a pretty stellar new album titled The Concrete Flower last year and the band has unloaded their music video for the track “Brave Hearts.” The video is live-shot and I think it’s pretty rad. “Brave Hearts” is one of my favorite tracks off of the bands new album and if you haven’t, you should definitely be checking it out. Check out the video below! Continue reading
Just when I thought that no one would be writing a song about everyone’s favorite learn-at-your-own-pace college, Veil Of Maya have done it!

BOOM. Continue reading
I just read a statement that said that Caliban have never released a song in their native German until their most recent album Ghost Empire. Well, just to clear things up, this is not true. This may very well be the first ORIGINAL track the band has recorded in German, but in 2011 the band released an EP of cover songs titled Coverfield, which featured the Rammstein song “Sonne,” which is 100% in German. Just wanted to clear that up.
That said, Caliban have released a lyric video for their track “Nebel” off of Ghost Empire. Yes, the song is in German and yes, it rules. Check out the video below and be sure to pick up the new record if you haven’t. It’s a crusher. Continue reading

After the jump you can check out the video for “What Choice Did You Give Us?” as well as read the bands statement. Continue reading

When I Killed the Prom Queen released their comeback record earlier this year, I was beyond stoked. As a huge fan of metalcore, IKTPQ is one of my favorite bands and I was saddened when they went away. When they came back, I expected the band to have lost a step or two, but I was wrong. The band came back as strong as ever and Beloved is an amazing record. The band has just released a new music video fort their track “Calvert Street” which comes off of Beloved. You can check out the track after the jump and be sure to pick up the album, available now via Epitaph Records. Continue reading
Grooving stoner metal act Betzefer released The Devil Went Down To The Holy Land and now the band has released a new music video.

You can check out the music video after the jump. Do it. Also, if you haven’t picked up The Devil Went Down To The Holy Land, seriously go out and pick it up in some form or another. It’s phenomenal.
