The album will be released in North America on April 1st, Germany/Benelux/Finland on March 28th, and in the UK and everywhere else on March 31st.

Fan-filmed footage captured Animals as Leaders performing a new song this past Friday, January 31st, in Brisbane, Australia. The track sounds pretty solid from what I can discern. You can watch the performance after the break.
Animals as Leaders’ third full length album has been given a tentative March release date through Sumerian Records. No official details have been released just yet. The band will be embarking on an album release tour with After the Burial, Chon, and Navene K later this month. You can view the tour dates after the break as well.
Shortly after the announcement of the equally wicked Mastodon/Gojira/Kvelertak tour earlier today, the best death metal band to ever come out of New Zealand Ulcerate are finally coming back to the states to play a large handful of dates leading up to their appearance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. This band is one of my favorites and I’ve been waiting years to see them so I will for sure be at the very first date in Los Angeles. Find out the full batch of dates after the jump.
We’ve jammed out to both “The Lion’s Roar” and “Kindly Bent to Free Us” from Cynic’s forthcoming album Kindly Bent to Free Us, which is due out on February 18th. Now Loudwire have premiered yet another new track from the record entitled “True Hallucination Speak”. The six minute track, complete with lyric video, is absolutely hypnotic and the bass lines are to die for. You can check out the proggy awesomeness after the break.
A new track from Cynic’s forthcoming album, Kindly Bent to Free Us, has premiered in the form of a lyric video over at Revolver. The track just so happens to be the album’s title track and just like the previously released “The Lion’s Roar”, takes a little more subdued and softer approach compared to the band’s previous releases. Regardless, this six minute jam is something all prog-fans, including myself, will enjoy. You can stream the track after the break.
Kindly Bent to Free Us will be released on February 18th.
ASG will be hitting the road in April alongside Anciients and embark on a European tour (a first for Anciients who released their debut full-length last year on Season Of Mist) and it is sure to be a doozy. If you are anywhere in the proximity of ANY of these shows, you better get your ass to Mars to the show(s)! Check out the dates and full poster after the jump. Continue reading →
The progressively chaotic rock trio Wild Throne (formerly known as Dog Shredder), have revealed the details on their forthcoming debut EP Blood Maker, which is due out on March 4th via Brutal Panda Records. The EP, produced by Ross Robinson (Glassjaw, At the Drive-In), will feature three new tracks and will be available on limited edition 12″ vinyl and digitally. Pre-orders for both can be found here and here. On the new record, guitarist/vocalist Josh Holland comments:
Between The Buried And Me are no strangers to the touring circuit but this round will be a pretty damn interesting tour. BTBAM will be hitting the road in February alongside Deafheaven, Intronaut and The Kindred. This is sure to be a diverse and destructive tour that you need to get to if you’re around one of the stops. Check out the full poster and dates after the jump. Continue reading →
Spastic metallers Czar released their latest offering No One Is Alone If No One Is Alive a while back and now the band has unveiled their odd music video for their track “Aortic Flower.” This is my favorite track off of the album and I was thrilled to see a video for it. The video is slightly underwhelming, but it’s still kinda cool. Check it out and see for yourself. Continue reading →
Mutoid Man (Converge, Cave In) have premiered their forthcoming debut album Helium Head over at Lambgoat for your listening pleasure. The high octane, riff-smashing debut officially comes out this Friday November 29th but you can jam these six diabolical tracks right now. Head over to Lambgoat to stream it now.
I praisedThe Safety Fire‘s new album Mouth Of Swords a while back and, while it’s slowly slipped away from me, I still enjoy a handful of the songs on the album. The band recently released their latest music video for the albums title track, which is one of my favorite songs on the album. The video is cool except for the annoyance of how the song doesn’t sync up. Whatsoever. I know tons of bands do this when they release live performance videos, but they usually aren’t this apparent. I do enjoy the non-performance footage, though.
East Of The Wall are homies here at Aftermath HQ and we appreciate the bands constant evolution. I also appreciate how the band can take a performance video and make it extremely interesting. Their new video for “Obfuscator Dye” grabs you from the very beginning and holds your attention throughout, just like their new album Redaction Artifacts. Check out the video after the jump.

Brooklyn’s Tidal Arms have premiered another new track from their forthcoming self titled album, which is due out on November 26th, over at Noisey. This new track is the seven minute, shape-shifting dirge “Molasses” and it is quite the ambitious jam. You can stream the track after the break if you so wish, and you better wish.
Protest The Hero released their new album not too long ago and the band continues in promotion of this phenomenal release. The band has just unleashed their latest music video for their song “Underbite.” This video is fantastic because it is entirely comprised of puppets! Puppets! Yeah, it’s pretty rad. Check it out: Continue reading →
