Post-black metal purveyors Vattnet Viskar have released a new track from their forthcoming album, Settler, which is due out June 16 via Century Media. The new track is titled “Impact” and it storms right out of the gate with furious drumming and stampeding riffs that, while heavy, are soaked with serene melodies and radiate with a kind of intense beauty that you cannot turn away from. Let the track and Josh Graham’s (Neurosis, A Storm of Light, etc) visuals envelop you after the break.
Enabler have released the first official taste of their forthcoming full-length, Fail To Feel Safe, which is to be released via Century Media later this year. The new track is titled “By Demons Denied” and its as heavy and punishing as any track you’d expect from them. Prepare to be strangulated by serpentine, groove-laden guitars and lifted up by hovering, spiraling melodies. Just listen for yourself after the break.
An extended version of the track will appear on the group’s forthcoming 7″/digital single of the same name, which will be released on June 2.

Bay Area technical metal outfit WRVTH have premiered the official lyric video for their new track, “Into Bloom”, over at Skulls ‘N’ Bones. The new track shows off some impressive musical chops.

“This songs very personal. It talks about finding who and where you want to be through chasing your dreams.”
The lyric video can be viewed after the break.

French sludgy post-hardcore purveyors Watertank have premiered the official video for their track “Surrender” over at Noisey. The catchy tune, which comes from the group’s forthcoming Destination Unknown album, is set to a Special Sauce Productions-directed clip that mixes band performance with solemn still imagery and “Jacob’s Ladder”-esque effects.

German experimental metal outfit Valborg have premiered the official video for their track “Sulphur Vitriol Angel” over at No Clean Singing. The sludgy, atmospheric track, which comes from their recently released album Romantik, is set to a Soheyl Nassary-directed clip depicting the band adorned with floral headdresses. The band and Nassary commented on the new video:
“For the 2nd time we worked with German artist Soheyl Nassary. He chose the song and created the concept for this video. It’s his vision of a “Sulphur Vitriol Angel”, thus the word belongs to him.”
“My work is based mostly on a visual idea, which tells a story and creates a mood by default through targeted production. The floral theme is a game with Romantik stereotypes and thus to contextualize the VALBORG song/music theme.”
You can view the video after the break as well as stream the new album, Romantik.
Rhode Island’s infamous noise makers Daughters subtly announced last year that they were in the process of writing.

You check out the clips after the break.
