Los Angeles-based EBM/Industrial group Youth Code are currently streaming their latest EP, A Place To Stand, in full over at Pitchfork. Consisting of four new original tracks and four remixes of past material by CLIPPING, Sanford Parker of Corrections House, God Module and Silent Servant, the newly Josh Eustis (Nine Inch Nails, Telefon Tel Aviv, Sons Of Magdalene) produced EP by the frenetic electronic duo sees the group expanding their soundscape to include more melodic synths and layered, complex rhythms, in addition to a brief varied vocal approach on the A-Side closer “A Litany (A Place To Stand)” which trades the group’s usual harsh vocals for an expanded spoken word diatribe. Stream A Place To Stand via Pitchfork here and pre-order the record via Dais Records here, due September 23rd.
Concurrently, Youth Code are due for a record release show on the same date at The Complex In Glendale, with support by High-Functioning Flesh and Them Are Us Too. The duo will also support VNV Nation and Skinny Puppy with Haujobb late Fall on the month-long Alliance Of Sound Tour. Full details for those live dates are provided below.

Today saw the release of Aevangelist‘s new album Writhes In The Murk, which is one of the filthiest, most grotesque, most phenomenally heavy albums of the year.

After the jump you can stream/buy the new album from Aevangelist and I highly suggest doing so. It rules. Enjoy, fool. Continue reading →

Back in July, Lane told you about Teen Death, a new band that everyone should have on their radar because their EP Crawling is amazing and it is definitely end-of-the-year-list worthy. I have listened to this album numerous times and, even if it’s just once, listen to it. Do it for the good of all humanity. Do it for grungepunk in 2014. It’s unique and it’s magical. Stream Crawling over at New Noise Magazine.

Scandinavian one-woman black metal act Myrkur is a band that jumped onto my radar a week or so ago and I have really been enjoying what I’ve heard from her self-titled debut record, which is to be released next week. The band has a very dark and intense sound and I think this will definitely be a contender for EP of the year. Check it out over on Pitchfork and see what you think.
The debut album from Phoenix-based death metal quartet Lago, Tyranny, can now be streamed in full over at Invisible Oranges. The record will be fully unleashed next Tuesday, September 16th.

Texas In July are a band that I was not totally familiar with before I checked out the bands new record about ten minutes before starting this post. I have seen the name, but never sought after them. Well, I regret not listening sooner because this band is pretty rad. It always shocks me that metalcore can exist in 2014 and not be godawful, but Texas In July kill this. The bands new album will be released next week and you can stream the effort in full below. Sound off in the comments and let me know if you’re digging them as much as I am. Continue reading →
