There. Now you know what this sick new Dawn Of Azazel track is all about. Check out “Controlled Burn” below and get a dose. Continue reading
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. I definitely want to check out more from this melodic monstrosity. You can check out the new track below and be sure to check back for more details concerning Broken Cross‘s new record.

Remember the last post I did about Black Mare? Well, I hope you’re ready to hear what the other half of that RSD split is going to sound like, because it sounds pretty rad. Lycia have released a stream of their new track “Silver Leaf” over on CVLT Nation and it is a brilliant, beautiful piece of music. Again, not super familiar with the band, but I will definitely dig into them. It’s pretty killer. Check out “Silver Leaf” below. Continue reading
Black Mare, who, in case you (like me) don’t know is the ambient side project of Ides Of Gemini frontperson Sara Timms, are plotting the release of a split 7″ with Lycia on Record Store Day and a new music video has been released for the former’s track “Low Crimes.” Now, I don’t know much about Ides Of Gemini, let alone side projects such as Black Mare, but this track is pretty great. The video is also pretty cool and I suggest checking it out. As always, you can see it after the jump. Continue reading
Djentlemen, Periphery have released a new music video. The band released their fantastic double album Juggernaut back in January and it’s still a steady listen for me. Well, the band has released a music video for their track “The Bad Thing.” The video was shot live and it’s pro-fessional. Look it up in the book. It’s cool. Check it out below. Continue reading
I love Drudkh. The band is fascinating and they have been crafting phenomenal black metal for a looooong time. Well, they will be releasing their new album A Furrow Cut Short in May and you can now hear the album in full. I have listened to this bad boy one full time all the way through and a few tracks here and there and I gotta admit… I fucking love it. Check out the full stream of A Furrow Cut Short after the jump. All praise Drudkh. Continue reading
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. I adore Fight Amp and anything they release, so there is no doubt that Constantly Off will be a choice listen. Continue reading
Brooklyn noise rock/hardcore trio My America (formerly My America is Watching Tigers Die) have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Misses, over at Noisey. The new track is titled “Bad Hosts” and will bowl you over with its bass-heavy, driving hardcore stylings. On the track, frontman Matt Turner issued the following comments:
“‘Bad Hosts’ is the last song we wrote and recorded. The album itself is so serious and intense, ‘Bad Hosts’ is something we did for fun, to lighten the mood. We tracked the song live with Kevin. Although it’s not part of the album, it’s an essential part of our whole experience of making the album.”
Stream the track over at Noisey now.
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.

Steve Von Till (Neurosis) has released a new track from his upcoming record, A Life Unto Itself, over at New Noise. The track is the hauntingly beautiful album opener “In Your Wings”, in which Von Till‘s raspy croons propels the dust-laden, harrowing folk-inspired instrumentation to its ethereal end. You can check out the track after the break.
A Life Unto Itself will be released on May 12 via Neurot Recordings.
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.
Now THIS is a tour I can get behind. You all know how much I adore Coheed And Cambria and I also love emo act You Blew It!.

If you’re a seasoned fan of Coheed and have yet to get into You Blew It!, this would be the PERFECT time to do so. Check out the dates below and PLEASE check out one of the shows. Continue reading
Danzig and Cancer Bats on tour together? Sure, I can see that. Throw Pennywise in the mix and you have my attention. That is a strange addition to this tour package and I am curious if fans of the former will dig the latter and vice versa. It should be somewhat interesting to say the least. You can check out the dates below and see if you’ll be hitting up any of these shows. Again, Danzig. Cancer Bats. Pennywise. Weird. Continue reading
