Out of the blue, Greensboro, NC grindcore/crust unit Torch Runner have returned, along with details for their upcoming sophomore LP, Endless Nothing, which if the debut single “Godlust” is any sign, signals only an amplification of brutalistic quality for the group. Due out September 30th via Southern Lord Records, Endless Nothing is an effort “reaching new depths of auditory violence”, according to the group’s press release. As the evidence stands so far, I believe it. Check out the new track “Godlust” along with full album artwork and tracklistings for Endless Nothing below.

Blackened thrashers Skeletonwitch have today unveiled their new music video for their track “Unending, Everliving,” which comes off of the bands most recent effort Serpents Unleashed. The video is quite certainly NSFW, so watch it on your own time. It’s a pretty rad video, although no where near the bands video with the Furries. Check out the video for “Unending, Everliving” below. Continue reading

Code Orange have premiered their highly-anticipated new record, I Am King, over at Consequence of Sound. The album will officially be released on September 2nd via Deathwish, Inc. But for those of us who couldn’t wait any longer, Consequence of Sound is helping us satiate our appetites. The album is quite the contrast, for the most part, to the group’s previous efforts. I Am King shows a lot more straight-forward metal-influence and some emphasis on groove. Check it out for yourself and tell us what you think.
Portland trio Sloths have premiered the opening cut from their forthcoming Twenty Years EP over at Metal Underground.

Check out the track for yourself over at Metal Underground.
Twenty Years will be available digitally this Friday, August 29th. A physical release is due out in October through The Ghost is Clear, Don’t Live Like Me and Illuminasty Records.
