A few months back I posted about a rad compilation featuring bands covering Misfits tracks. Well, the folk at CVLT Nation have come through again and have released a new compilation featuring covers of one of my all-time favorite bands: Joy Division. Some of the stand-out bands are Pinkish Black, Old Witch and Arctic Flowers, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Check out a full stream of the compilation below. Continue reading
Odd Future hip-hop collective MellowHype (Hodgy Beats and Left Brain), who released the phenomenal album Numbers back in 2012 have just released their new mixtape INSA. As a fan of the group, I was thrilled to find out that I had new jams to enjoy and, yes, the music is fantastic. You can stream the mixtape after the jump and you can find the link to download the album for free. Daaaaaamn right. Continue reading
Not too long ago I told you about that new track from Red Fang that I was digging. You remember, right? Well that track was the a-side of the bands newly released Scion A/V 7″, which Scion will be handing out for FREE at upcoming shows. Well, the band has now released the b-side to said 7″. This track is titled “The Shadows,” as opposed to the previously released track “The Meadows.” Check it out after the jump. Continue reading
A while back CVLT Nation started doing their CVLT Nation Sessions, in which they would enlist numerous bands to cover albums in full.

If you’re like me, you were subjected to many hours of your childhood being spent on PBS, probably finding yourself watching Reading Rainbow. As a kid, I wasn’t aware that the guy hosting the show was also Geordi La Forge nor did I know that one day I would be writing a post about it on my metal blog. Continue reading
Why am I not surprised that Weedeater love doughnuts? I mean, everyone loves doughnuts so why wouldn’t a stonerdoom band love them?! Well, Weedeater want to show you exactly how much they love the sweet delectables in their new track “Hot Doughnuts Now.” The track was recorded after Weedeater performed at one of Scion A/V’s shows at the Satellite in L.A. Apparently, every band that plays records a track that is then pressed onto 7″ vinyl which is then distributed for free at future shows.
Check out the track below. Continue reading
I am a huge black metal fan and one of my favorite styles of the genre is black punk. What is black punk, you ask? It’s a raw and filthy style of black metal that drips and oozes with punk tones. The band that got me into the genre is Raspberry Bulbs and now another band has crept into my peripheral. The band is called Floridian Winter and I have heard whispers about the band here and there across the interwebs but sitting down right now and listening to the bands material, I am blown away. Check out a stream below that is being hosted by our friends at CVLT Nation, who also have a free download of both releases in the stream. Continue reading

This compilation features tracks by Primitive Weapons, Ruine, So Hideous, Car Bomb and many more from the New York metal scene.. You can stream the whole thing below and download it over on MetalSucks. Rad tunes.
I am a huge can of post punk, especially when it is done correctly. I have recently (and by recently, I mean yesterday) learned of a new post punk artist who creates haunting and mesmerizing tunes under the moniker This Cold Night. The guys name is Chase Morledge and he is a phenomenon. I mean, it’s like the nineties and two-thousands never happened. This is so ’80s reminiscent that it’s fucking insane. Check out a full stream of his new album We Of Like Minds after the jump. Continue reading

So click on over and stream and download the album and then figure out if this tour is coming near you. Continue reading
Whoresnation are a band that I have been listening to for a while but for some reason I missed the release of their latest album earlier this month. The French band with such an amazing name takes grindcore to new heights and completely decimates everything in its way. Taking cues from Napalm Death and Rotten Sound but adding their own distinct flavor and flow, Whoresnation are most definitely one of the most important grindcore bands that you don’t know exist. Continue reading
Cara Neir are one of my favorite black metal acts of the last few years and not just because I’m friends with the guys. I love their music and how consistently they release albums. The band released their third full-length album last year titled Portals To a Better, Dead World and now the band has unleashed a new EP called The Overwatch. Coming in with seven tracks of hatred and despair, Cara Neir have once again totally destroyed. Check out a stream of the new EP and download it after the jump! Continue reading
My good friends and heavy rockers Captain Overboard–Radio Earth!, over the holiday break, released their debut music video for the title track off of their most recent record Waiting Oblivion. I really dig what the guys have done on this record and the video is very well put together. Although it is a performance video, it tells a story and sticks to it. Check out the video after the jump and be sure to download Captain Overboard‘s new album Waiting Oblivion over on their Bandcamp. Continue reading

Three more rad Meek Is Murder songs for your holidaze, collected and titled Infant Worship. The band recorded the songs at the Converse Rubber Tracks’ studio, where they had some free recording time. The EP was recorded and mixed in a single day.
So, let’s kick this shit! You can stream and download the EP after the jump as well as check out a video from the sweeties themselves. Continue reading
Regrettably, I have only posted about The Armed once on here, but I do love this band. Vicious, spastic grindcore with an Atrocitus-sized level of raging anger. If you’re new to The Armed, you can get completely caught up over on their Bandcamp page, but what I want to really talk about is the new split the dudes just released with Tharsis They. This is mad shit right here, kids.
Where The Armed assault you with their mathcore elements, Tharsis They are more straight forward vicious hardcore. The pairing of the two is something of dreams. Seriously. You can stream and download the split below. Give yourself over to it. Continue reading
