Portuguese grind/crust outfit Simbiose have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Trapped, over at Ponto Alternativo. The track is entitled “Ignorância Colectiva” and it is full of thrashing, galloping crust that fans of Doom and the like will adore. Vocalist Jonhie says the new track “talks about the kind of people that just likes to criticise and say bad things about the others, but in reality don’t do nothing for anyone or to change anything!” Feel free to stream the new jam after the break.
Trapped will be released on March 15 via Anticorpos Records.
German deathgrinders Mörser have premiered the official video for their track “All to Suffer” from their upcoming album, V. The vile, face-melting grind anthem is set to clips of Russian scientist Sergei Brukhonenko’s experiments on a deceased dog’s severed head from the 1940’s film “Experiments in the Revival of Organisms”. The track and the film complement each other quite nicely, to say the least. Check out the video after the break.
V will be released on February 27.

I fell in love with Dephosphorus a while back and have yet to let this band go. I absolutely love all of their music and their drive and integrity make them infinitely interesting. Haapoja are a band that I am not really familiar with, but plan to become that way. Dephosphorus‘s style is a crushing crusty black metal while Haapoja are more straight forward blackened madness. The bands will unleash a split LP and you can hear a track from each below. OH MY GOD. Continue reading
I’ve been championing the new double album from the djentlemen in Periphery because I truly dig the new music. This band has grown a lot in a short period of time and I think Juggernaut is the best work of their career. The band released both albums yesterday and also released a pretty rad music video for their track “Alpha.” The video features the band playing with virtual reality. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.

Who’s ready to get their face crushed before a new episode of The Flash airs? This dude! Harm’s Way released a radical new track titled “Law Of The Land” earlier today and it is seriously one of the most vicious songs I’ve ever heard from this band. I’ve loved Harm’s Way for a long while now, but I cannot wait to hear this new LP. Check out the new track below and pre-order Rust via Deathwish Inc. here. Continue reading
One of the raddest records of the year is coming from the amazingly heavy death doom outfit Outer Heaven. This band is cranking out some slow and steady NWOOSDM and it’s fucking phenomenal. Think Hooded Menace and Serpentine Path mated, had a baby and then that child was raised by My Dying Bride back in the day. I mean, it’s that good. Check out a new track off of the bands impending Diabolus Vobiscum EP below. Continue reading
