Formed out of the remnants of the late and great Lapse and Eddie Brock comes Sokushinbutsu, a new Baltimore based group so accurately self-described as “not metal dudes playing death metal”. Presenting death metal strained through the filters of hardcore, powerviolence, grindcore and d-beat, Sokushinbutsu assault with a bite not ill-compared to the more recent iterations of Mammoth Grinder and Hatred Surge on their debut demo Holy Ground, albeit sustained with a bit more focus. In accordance with the aforementioned groups and in contrast to the dirgy death metal archetype, Holy Ground’s tracks run short and sweet with the majority of tracks running under two minutes, however, the tonality and vocals remain firmly ingrained in doomed out death metal, making the group’s excursions and diversions into their more familiar genres seem just that, extremely moshable “additives” to an already firm death metal base. Holy Ground is currently available for streaming below and free download via Sokushinbutsu’s official bandcamp here. Follow Sokushinbutsu through their official Facebook here and be sure to lookout for a tape version via Arctic Night Records soon as well as a full length from these maniacs on the horizon.
Release Date: September 23rd, 2013
Favorite Track: “Nail Through The Immortal Hand”
For Fans Of: Coffins, Mammoth Grinder, Hatred Surge

I have been a fan of Captain Three Leg for a while now and I have listened to damn-near all of the bands releases. In the last eighteen years, the band has released 43 albums in various formats and they show no sign of stopping, planning to hit their 50th release by the end of the year.

If you’ve been reading this site for a while, you know that I am a huge fan of Cloudkicker, the one-man, genre-spanning project by Ben Sharp. I have been anxiously awaiting the new album from Ben because I know, as with every album, it will be fantastic. I was right. Ben has released via Bandcamp, his new album Subsume!
As with all of Cloudkicker‘s past material, this is very strong and very expansive and also up for “Name Your Price.” This album does show Ben touching back on the heavier side of his music, a la Beacons, which is really rad. You can stream and download Subsume after the jump. You want this. Continue reading »

House favorite filthy grinders Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire have been destroying minds since 2006 and in that time they have released only two full-length albums in 2008 and 2010.

Two of these albums have now been made available to download for free from the band. Which two? You’ll have to check that out after the jump. Continue reading »
Baltimore’s newest thrashers Noisem are an incredible band that I have come to love this year. Their debut release Agony Defined is definitely one of the best and meanest records of the year and, if you have yet to get into these dudes, they are giving you the chance! For a limited time, you can download/pay what you want for Agony Defined via their label A389′s Bandcamp page or the widget below.
To go along with the great news of a free album, the band has also released a live music video for their song “Severed” through Toxicbreed’s Funhouse. You can check that out after the jump. Also, epic win for the singers short-shorts. Continue reading »
What happens when you mix members of four of the UKs most brilliant and brutal grind bands? You get a sickening masterpiece that goes by the name of Confine. Featuring members of Oblivionized, The Human Cull, Corrupt Moral Altar and The Afternoon Gentlemen, this band is an entity that will blast you right out of your seat. The band recently released their debut 8-track album titled Setting Fire To The Western Hemisphere and I am taken aback by how fucking insane this record is. Continue reading »

Not only have they released some of the most vicious, highly-anticipated and menacing grinding hardcore records of the last few years, but they have also launched themselves forward and have made their latest album Rudiments of Mutilation available for free download via A389′s Bandcamp page.
If you have yet to take in the mass intensity that is Full Of Hell or if you haven’t had the cash to grab a proper copy of Rudiments, now is your chance. Get on this shit, as it is a bad mother of a record. FYI, the album is available for free for this week only!! Continue reading »
If you’ve never checked out the Massachusetts Is A Coffin compilation series, I highly recommend them. They are released annually for the low, low price of free on Bandcamp. The latest addition of Massachusetts Is A Coffin has just been released and features 31 astounding tracks of a wide array of hardcore styles.
Featuring bands such as Anti-Venom, War Cross, Tinnitus, Death Injection and many more, this isn’t something you want to pass up. My favorite track on the album is Test of Time‘s rendition of Skid Row‘s “Youth Gone Wild,” which is dubbed “Youth (Crew) Gone Wild.” It’s great. Stream and download the compilation after the jump and check out the previous volumes here. Continue reading »

The band is currently giving their 2012 release Extinction Of Trust for free for 24 hours only. I highly suggest you go snag it right now.
