Josh will release the debut, self-titled album will be released next month and a music video for the track “On The Shores Of Markarian 335″ has been released. It is a beautiful video with a great concept. You can check it out below. Please, do it. Continue reading

Arizona sludge quintet Godhunter have premiered the official video for their track “Cassandra Complex” over at CVLT Nation. The thunderous track comes from the group’s upcoming split LP with Destroyer of Light, Endsville, which is due out on July 28. The song is set to a Frank Huang-created clip which compiles various footage of human violence and atrocities. NSFW? You betcha. Check out the video after the break.
I meant to post about this track yesterday, but the site was being spazzy and I couldn’t get the song to stream. I’m not going to post about something I didn’t listen to. Well, today I am stoked to talk about the great new The Sword track “High Country.” It’s a great Sabbathian track that soothes and storms. Check out the track over on The Sword‘s website. Pre-orders are available here.
Revocation will hit the road this Fall on a North American headlining trek in support of their most recent effort, Deathless.

The touring schedule can be viewed after the break.
Death metal horde Kataklysm will deliver their new record Of Ghosts And Gods at the end of the month and the band has unleashed another new track. This track is a phenomenal boomer with some killer deathchugging and it is called “The Black Sheep.” You can check out the track below. Do it, man. We all love Kataklysm. Continue reading
Portland sound manipulator Kyle Bates (Sloths), AKA Drowse, has premiered the official video for this track “Melt” over at Exclaim.ca. The oscillating, haunting and multi-faceted track is set to a Victoria Ayers-directed clip depicting a myriad of images that range from bleak to abstractly beautiful. It’s a visually striking and very discombobulating video that works well with the song’s wall of disorienting, yet gorgeous sound. Check it out for yourself after the break.
Soon Asleep is available now via APNEICVOID. Stream the record after the break.
Man it has been a long time since we got some new, rad Zao tunes. I mean, American Aftermath wasn’t even around back then and I know I’m not the only one who listens to The Funeral Of God on a regular basis, right? We have all been wondering if Zao was going to still have the chops to crush after all these years and I am proud to reveal that they do indeed have the chops. The band has a new track streaming over on Decibel and it’s wonderful. Head on over and stream it til you faint.
Australian post-metal outfit Dumbsaint have premiered the official video for their track “Cold Call” over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The track will appear on the group’s forthcoming album, Panorama, in ten pieces, and the video is but one section of an entire 60-minute film written, filmed and edited by the band that will be completely synced to the new album. The brought their expansive sounds and their penchant for film together on previous releases Disappearance In A Minor Role and The Auteur. You can check out the clip after the break.
Panorama, in ten pieces will be released on August 7. Pre-orders can be found here.
We never get enough of Enabler here on AA. This band quickly rose through the ranks of my favorite hardcore bands and rocketed to my favorite all-time bands. They absolutely crush every.single.time. and it only gets better. We know that Fail To Feel Safe, the bands new record is due out early next month and MetalSucks have premiered the title track! It’s beautifully aggressive and angrily gnarly as fuck. Enjoy a good throat punch below. Continue reading
British post-prog act Milk White Throat, whom I have featured here on the site a few times, have been working on new material lately and it appears that it is coming to light. The band has released a new music video which is for a new track titled “Under Duress.” The song is great, like all MWT songs are and the video is really rad. For a performance video, it is definitely one of my favorites I’ve seen in a while. Check out “Under Duress” below. Continue reading
