Stick To Your Guns will be releasing their new album next February and the band has stepped into promotion of the album very early. The band has release a music video for a new single titled “Nobody,”* which I really dig. I’ve always liked this band and I think the vibe they currently have going for them is pretty rad.

After nearly a decade-and-a-half of silence, Montreal-based experimental rock act Lae will release their long-awaiting debut full length, Break the Clasp, on November 25th.
The band were initially active in the mid 1990s under the name Lae-Tseu and impacted the Quebec art and post-hardcore/emo/indie scenes and earned a solid regional fanbase. As they were preparing to recorded their debut full length, the band dissolved and was put on hold in 2001. Now, nearly 13 years later, the newly reformed Lae are ready to unleash these songs upon the world.
We here at American Aftermath are excited to bring you your first taste of Break the Clasp in the form of the album’s seventh track, “Sister”. The song echoes psychedelic progressive rock and post-rock but the overall picture is far more expansive. The song, as well as the album in general, is wholly unique and escapes categorization. Stream “Sister” for yourself and read a quick interview with Lae mastermind Marc Lucas Ablasou after the break.
Abysmal Dawn has released two tracks off of their new album Obsolescence and I somehow have missed them both, but best believe I wouldn’t miss the third.

Abysmal Dawn are straight up destroyers and their new album will crush your skull. Don’t believe me, this new track will prove it to you. YES! Continue reading →
Legendary Gothenberg act At The Gates have fucking returned! After damn-near twenty years, they will be unleashing their new album At War With Reality at the end of the month and let me tell you, this shit slays.

The shit has hit the fan and it smells wonderful. Check out a new music video for the bands track “Death And The Labyrinth” below. Continue reading →
Who doesn’t love speed metal-inspired hardcore? Well, I know I do, and that’s why I adore Foreseen (aka Foreseen HKI).

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.

Check out the track below and get an ear full of fucking metal. Continue reading →
As Lane told you earlier this month, Anatomy Of Habit will be releasing a new album Ciphers + Axioms next month and the band has issued its first single from the album.
