Unique Leader is one of my favorite current record labels because they release some of the raddest, most technical and most interesting death metal of today. Hideous Divinity will be releasing their sophomore album for the label, Cobra Verde, in two weeks and the band is currently streaming the albums title track. “Cobra Verde” is a vicious, technical attack on all of your being. Check out the track below and get an ear full of fucking metal. Continue reading

Revocation have unleashed “Labyrinth Of Eyes”, the third single from the group’s upcoming fifth LP and Metal Blade Records debut, Deathless. Taking a retreat from the brutality of the two prior singles, “Madness Opus” and “Deathless”, “Labyrinth Of Eyes” is a mid-paced, technical and rather notey number, invoking Cynic-ian overtones whilst still maintaining the darker feel of the new album. Check out “Labyrinth Of Eyes” via Invisible Oranges here and pre-order Deathless out next Tuesday via Metal Blade Records here. Catch Revocation supporting Deathless now on the remaining dates of their current tour run with the legendary Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse and later on their European run with Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and even later on their Australian run with Thy Art Is Murder, full details below.

The finest, cerebral, contorted guitar playing I have seen has come from the hands of The Nautilus’ Ross Albrecht.The Nautilus bind the fluid propulsive rhythm of The Black Dahlia Murder and supplement it with Gojira-esque melodies. Also, add the finest British Columbian weed with overt Canadian thrash influences and you would have the slightest hint of what they sound like.
Having shared the stage with bands like Tesseract, Cloudkicker, The Ocean, Mouth of The Architect, and Intronaut, the band should have not been too surprised to see their debut EP being raved about by MetalSucks via their “Unsigned and Unholy”posts. Ross gives us a briefing on the Vancouver band.
Experimental death metal outfit Pyrrhon have premiered the official video for their track “Sleeper Agent”, which comes from their most recent effort The Mother of Virtues, over at Metal Sucks. The disorienting track is set to a David Hall (Brutal Truth, etc) directed clip that is just as disorienting and trippy as the song itself. You can check out the seizure-inducing video after the break.
Pyrrhon will be heading out on tour with Gigan and Artificial Brain this week. Those dates can be found after the break.
Dallas-based technical death metal outfit Baring Teeth have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming album, Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins, which is due out on November 25th via Willowtip Records. The new track is entitled “Mountain” and it is full of that disjunctive, noisy, dissonant, Gorgutsian-instrumentation the band is known for. The abstract, disorienting track can be streamed below. The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen below as well.
Pre-orders for the new album can be found here.
Bay Area tech death outfit Rings of Saturn have premiered the new video for their track “Senseless Massacre” over at Metal Injection. The track opens up their forthcoming album, Lugal Ki En, which is due out on October 14th via Unique Leader (Pre-order here). On the video, guitarist Lucas Mann comments:
“’Senseless Massacre’ is the first debut single off of Rings of Saturn’s new album, Lugal Ki En, on Unique Leader Records. The music video depicts the band as aliens (full-black eyes) performing on alien-like instruments (Etherial Guitars) with their vocalist, Ian Bearer, being abducted and tortured in extraterrestrial machinery. After being tortured and experimented on, his blood turns blue at the end of the video showing that he has transformed and is no longer human. This conveys the idea that aliens could already be living along side us without the general population being aware of it.”
You can check out the video after the break.
Technical mind-melters Pyrrhon have premiered a collection of playthrough videos for their song “Balkanized”, from their most recent effort The Mother of Virtues, over at Gear Gods.

Techdeath horde Origin will be releasing the amazing their new album Omnipresent next week and the band has made the entire album available for streaming. It’s a miraculous thing.
