Killer Be Killed is the supergroup featuring members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon and Soulfly and they released a pretty phenomenal album earlier this year. The band has just released their new music video for their track “Snakes Of Jehova,” which can be seen after the jump. This video is not unlike their debut video for “Wings Of Feather And Wax,” but it’s still cool. Check it out below and see if it tickles your fancy. Continue reading
Martyr Defiled are a band that took my by storm with their new album No Hope No Morality, which came out earlier this year. To make things even more interesting, the band has unleashed their cover of Lamb Of God‘s “Redneck,” with their rendition being a phenomenal one. This isn’t the cover that I would have picked for MD to perform, but I dig it nonetheless. Check out “Redneck” after the jump.

Forevermore recently released their Solid State debut Telos and it’s a really rad album. The band has also released a music video for their song “Transcendence” which doesn’t involve Johnny Depp whatsoever. (Get it?) I really dig this track and the video is pretty cool. You can check out “Transcendence” after the jump, and for good measure, I’ll put the trailer for the Johnny Depp science fiction film down there also. Continue reading
I have seriously gotten into Kublai Khan this year with the bands new record Balancing Survival And Happiness. It is such a great album that I have continuously listened to it over the last few months. It’s a heavy metalcore that totally crushes and the band has just released a music video for the title track off of their new album, which you can check out after the jump. It’s a really cool video featuring live performance footage from the All-Stars Tour as well as random shenanigans. Check it out: Continue reading

Check out the new music video below. In addition, be sure to catch Code Orange on their upcoming co-headlining tour with Twitching Tongues, details here. Continue reading
One of the break-out bands of the year for me is Wovenwar. I think this band has taken a bad situation and completely turned it around to create something new and fantastic. I think the bands new album is phenomenal in every way and I look forward to seeing where they go next. The band has just released their music video for the track “All Rise” and it’s a good example of a great video featuring nothing but the band, I love the composition and I think it’s just a great video. Check it out after the jump. Continue reading
Cinemagrind executioners Graf Orlock are back with “A Decent Proposal In A Shitty Alley”, the second cut of three (of which the third features actor Kevin Gage in some manner) off of their Trailer EP, the prelude and teaser to the group’s upcoming Fall LP Crime Traveller. Among the longer of the group’s tracks and possibly its longest, the over four minute track appeals more to the group’s hardcore direction as explored in their Los Angeles EP with the lingering progression of southern-tinged hard rock, not far off of Every Time I Die’s trajectory. Stream the track exclusively via Noisey here, pre-order Trailer via Vitriol Records here or pick it up live on one of the band’s dates on their upcoming East Coast tour with Holy and Dangers, full dates and details below. Continue reading
I have been championing the debut album from Wovenwar, which arose out of the ashes of As I Lay Dying with Shane Blay of Oh, Sleeper on vocals. I absolutely love what this band has done and I am so stoked that the AILD dudes were able to pick up and continue making music after all of the bullshit that happened with their psychotic former vocalist. I think Wovenwar have put together a seamless debut album and you all need to hear it. Check it out after the jump. Continue reading
Metalcore heroes Darkest Hour have had their ups and downs with the tracks they have released off of their Sumerian Records debut Darkest Hour and now that the band has released the full album online for all to stream, I am digging a lot of it. There are a handful of tracks that I’m not into, but there is also a good amount of tracks that remind me of older Darkest Hour, so I have something to take away from the album. You can check out a full stream after the jump and see for yourself. Continue reading
Pittsburgh, PA metallic hardcore/beatdown co-op Unit 731 are currently streaming a new single entitled “Immolation” off of their upcoming third full-length LP and Harm Reduction Records (helmed by Jami from Code Orange and Patrick From Self Defense Family) debut, The Hive Mind, on their official bandcamp. Following off of the promise of the group’s first single “Altar Of Waste”, “Immolation” sees Unit 731 at their peak, melding the group’s bludgeoning beatdown roots with a new found sense of variation and transition. Stream “Immolation” below, catch Unit 731 on their upcoming August European tour with No Zodiac and Ablaze (details below) and lookout for pre-orders for The Hive Mind as well as all the excellent upcoming records on Harm Reduction Records soon.
I was extremely curious about Wovenwar when they arrived earlier this year. If you haven’t been keeping up, Wovenwar is all of As I Lay Dying minus Tim Labesis with the addition of Oh, Sleeper‘s Shane Blay taking over vocal duties. I’m really loving the bands album and the band has released one of my favorite tracks off of the album for your streaming pleasure. You can check out “Profane” after the jump. It’s gooooood. Continue reading
I’ve gotten into a lot of bands this year and two of the bands that I have come to love are Vanna and My Iron Lung. I also got into Being As An Ocean, but not to the extent of the former two. Well, these three bands are teaming up with Crooks for a European/UK tour this fall and if you are within the vicinity of any of these shows, I highly suggest you hit this tour up. Check the dates after the jump and see where you’ll be seeing Being As An Ocean, Vanna and My Iron Lung. Continue reading
England’s Baby Godzilla have release the official video for their new single, “The Great Hardcore Swindle”. The chaotic and catchy tune is set to a humorous clip of the band constructing makeshift battle suits and battling each other. It’s awesome, what more is there to say? You can check out the video after the break.
The 7″ single of “The Great Hardcore Swindle” can be purchased at this location.
