GRAF ORLOCK Streaming “A Decent Proposal In A Shitty Alley”

GRAF-2014

Cinemagrind executioners Graf Orlock are back with “A Decent Proposal In A Shitty Alley”,  the second cut of three (of which the third features actor Kevin Gage in some manner) off of their Trailer EP, the prelude and teaser to the group’s upcoming Fall LP Crime Traveller. Among the longer of the group’s tracks and possibly its longest, the over four minute track appeals more to the group’s hardcore direction as explored in their Los Angeles EP with the lingering progression of southern-tinged hard rock, not far off of Every Time I Die’s trajectory.  Stream the track exclusively via Noisey here, pre-order Trailer via Vitriol Records here or pick it up live on one of the band’s dates on their upcoming East Coast tour with Holy and Dangers, full dates and details below.  Continue reading

Following both a short live return last April as well as a recorded one via the release of this year’s Decline & Fall EP,  industrial metal mammoths Godflesh have officially announced details for their upcoming LP, A World Lit Only By Fire, the group’s first since 2001’s Hymns. Set to be unleashed October 6th via frontman Justin K. Broadrick’s very own Avalanche Recordings, track listing and artwork for A World Lit Only By Fire can be viewed below in addition to a stream of the battering debut single “New Dark Ages”, a number which mirrors the trudge and grime of the group’s early discography. According to some investigation by metal site Blabbermouth who tracked down an interview by Broadrick with French station Le 106, you can expect more of the same on the full-length. Both Godflesh practitioners, Green and Broadrick noted in the radio interview that Fire will be a return to form, adhering to the initial essence of the band and the direction and spirit of the first three releases.

SWALLOWED Streaming New Track “Arterial Mists Of Doom”

PROMO-LUNAR

Finnish death/doom act Swallowed are currently streaming a new track entitled “Arterial Mists Of Doom” off of their upcoming debut full-length effort, Lunarterial, poised for a split release on vinyl, CD and digital between Dark Descent Records and Me Saco Un Ojo on October 14th. Revamped and shortened off of the group’s 2010 self-titled EP, “Arterial Mists…” is the final brutal incantation of “The Dying Misted In The Bloodstream”, taking less a page from the gloom of Asphyx for a bite of the chaotic Teitanblood and Blasphemy. Armed with absolutely grueling production, the track sludges across like Cheryl being consumed by the woods in Evil Dead, its blasts and builds like the wringing apart of bone by rotten branches, ultimately building to a body-shattering conclusion ala Frank from Hellraiser. Pure fucking filth. Stream “Arterial Mists Of Doom” exclusively via Noisey here, peep the album artwork by Swiss artist Peter Birkhäuser below and be on the lookout for pre-orders on the horizon soon.  Continue reading
