New Jersey chaotic/progressive metallers Toothgrinder have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming EP, Schizophrenic Jubilee, which is due out on November 4th. The new track is entitled “The Hour Angle” and it churns out blistering, complex riffs and grooves. It’s almost like a cross between the most erratic moments of Animosity and The Dillinger Escape Plan and the more progressive aspects of Between the Buried and Me. You can stream the jarring number for yourself after the break.
Toothgrinder is currently on tour with Periphery, Intervals and The Contortionist. The remaining dates of the tour can be found below.
New Jersey metallic hardcore veterans The Banner have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming fourth full length album, Greying, which is due out later this year via Good Fight Music. The new track is entitled “Crippling Despair” and it will rip the unprepared a new one with its bludgeoning blackened hardcore riffs and its overbearing dismal atmosphere. You can stream the track after the break.
Greying will follow up 2013’s Born to Ruin I: The Way is Shut EP and will be the band’s first full length since 2008’s Frailty. Frontman JSS states:
“Greying is a mix of Each Breath Haunted’s darkness and Frailty’s heaviness. To bring you this album we mobilized the same team that brought you Frailty: producer Will Putney and label boss Carl Severson. Greying is very much a continuation of everything we built in the last decade, pushing everything forward to create the best music we’ve ever made.”

Usnea has unleashed one hell of an earth-smasher in the form of “Healing Through Death.” At over 14 minutes, this track is a fucking beast.

Entombed A.D. AKA Entombed Reprise released the rad album Back To The Front last month and now the band has released a music video for their song “Kill To Live.” The video was shot live at Party-San Open Air and it’s pretty cool. I’ve gotten a little meh about live videos, but some of them poke my fancy. I like this album and the video is pretty cool as well. Check it out after the jump. Continue reading →
Cannibal Corpse, as I’ve stated in the past, is my favorite band of all time. I love all of their albums and each and every music video.

Check it out after the jump or fuck off. Continue reading →
Revocation are back with the second in a series of behind the scenes features for their upcoming Metal Blade Records debut, Deathless, due out the 14th of October. The video continues the one-on-one interview format of the first entry, this time giving further insight into the meaning of the title track as well as the band’s decision to record with Zeuss of Planet Z Studios (Arsis, The Red Chord, Crowbar). Peep the teaser above and be sure to catch Revocation on one of their upcoming tours (US with Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse, Europe with death metal peers Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and Australia with Thy Art Is Murder).

Following a series of return announcements on Metal Hammer magazine, the newly-Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost) fronted Bloodbath have unleashed “Unite In Pain”, the first taste of the death metal supergroup’s long-awaited upcoming LP, Grand Morbid Funeral, due out November 17th on Peaceville Records. The track itself is a move backwards towards the group’s time on Nightmares Made Flesh and Resurrection Made Carnage rather than the more groove-oriented The Fathomless Mastery, grimier HM-2 sound, death metal explosions and familiar doomy dirges all in tow. In lieu of Peter Tagtren and Mikael Akerfeldt’s former capacities in the band, Holmes fills his vocal role well, adding a more clarified and pronounced growl to the mix. Stream “Unite In Pain” exclusively via Metal Hammer here, peep the track-list for Grand Morbid Funeral below and pre-order the record on CD, vinyl and bundle packages via Peaceville Records here and O-Merch here.

Heavy hitters The Acacia Strain blew me away with the first track off of the bands forthcoming Coma Witch and now they have released a new track titled “Nailgun” that totally destroys.

Check out the track after the jump. Continue reading →

Is everyone excited for some new Job For A Cowboy? I know I am. After the bands last album, I have seriously become infatuated with the band and I was stoked to find out that they would be releasing a new album this year. In November, JFAC will release Sun Eater upon the world and if that doesn’t excite you enough, you can also stream a rad new track titled “Sun Of Nihility.” I really dig this track. It feels like a further expansion on what JFAC have already evolved in to. Check out the new track and the track list after the jump. Continue reading →
