Are there two death metal acts bigger than Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth? I mean, these two entities have been around for a long time and neither have lost a step over the years. I suppose that it’s not completely out of the box that the band would be touring together, but this is still pretty exciting. The two bands will be teaming up for a co-headlining tour starting in January. The bands will see support from Aeon and Tribulation, so this is a bill that you absolutely HAVE to see. Check out all of the dates after the jump. Continue reading
Cannibal Corpse, as I’ve stated in the past, is my favorite band of all time. I love all of their albums and each and every music video. Well, the band recently released their fantastic new album A Skeletal Domain and have quickly followed it with their b-movie zombie-slaying music video for “Kill Or Become.” I love this track and the video is great. Check it out after the jump or fuck off. Continue reading
Titanic death metal legends Cannibal Corpse, and all-time favorite band of yours truly, will be releasing their highly anticipated new album A Skeletal Domain very soon and the band has unleashed a monstrous new track titled “The Murderer’s Pact,” which you can hear after the jump. If you’ve loved Cannibal in the past, you’ll love what A Skeletal Domain has to offer. Check it out! Continue reading
Wow. It seems like just yesterday that I posted about how Cannibal Corpse would be releasing a new album in a few months time. Well, to make things even more exciting for fans of the death metal titans, the band has unleashed their first track off of the pending slab of death and gore. The track is titled “Sadistic Embodiment” and it is true-to-form Cannibal Corpse and it is amazing. You can check out this brutal beat down after the jump. Continue reading
Oh hell to the yes. My favorite death metal monstrosity Cannibal Corpse will be releasing a new album this year! The bands thirteenth full-length album since their inception in 1988 is titled A Skeletal Domain (see artwork above) and sources say that it is due for a mid-September release. As it has been two years since the band released Torture and the fact that Adam D. of Killswitch Engage somewhat spilled the beans on Metal Injection’s weekly podcast a few weeks ago, I had a feeling that a new record would soon be upon us. You guys have no idea how stoked I am. Now, off to re-jam Torture! Check out the track list below. Continue reading
Well, this tour is pretty fucking sweet. You got Cannibal Corpse and Aeon both delivering killer death metal and Revocation thrashing the hell out of everything and you put them all on a tour together? Nice! Well, if you’re in Europe this fall. Yes, that’s right. Check out the dates below and see if this goremachine is headed your way. Continue reading
BEWARE: Beyond the confines of this warning lie some MILD spoilers!
Emerging out of trepid foundations and beyond negative fan reaction comes 2013’s Fede Alvarez helmed Evil Dead. With overwatch from the original film’s trio of producers (Bruce Campbell, Robert Tapert, and Sam Raimi), the 2013 reboot of the franchise delivers a fun, gore-soaked reinterpretation of the series for a new breed of torture-porn dazed, at your fingertip snuff video desensitized deadites that not only serves to replicate but to expand the mythos of the cult classic. Continue reading
I love when bands record cover songs as b-sides or unreleased songs… and then release them. Devourment are the latest band to perform this with a fantastic new cover of a classic death metal tune. Taking a band that they are obviously influenced by, Devourment have spewed forth a sickening rendition of Cannibal Corpse‘s “The Pick-Axe Murders.” Continue reading
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
I come in contact with new music all the time and sometimes I feel the need to share some of what I discover. Here’s a little band who was brought to my attention whom I feel have a lot of potential. Obviously the first thing you are going to notice is the gruesomely cartoonish artwork, which should give you an idea of what you are in for. If you thought slamming death metal than you are correct! Loathsome is a four piece death metal outfit whose debut release, Born From Rot, was put out by Gore House Productions earlier this year. What Loathsome have to offer you is a cavalcade of brutal riffs that fans of Cannibal Corpse and the like will appreciate. In addition to the ridiculous amounts of eviscerating riffs are the sickening, vile sounding vocals courtesy of vocalist Nev. This raw, blood and bile covered release are sure to satisfy the horror inspired death metal fan in everyone. The production on Born From Rot is not the best but this is a band still in its infancy and I predict that subsequent records will sound even better. You can stream the group’s debut release below if you so desire.
Shannon Lucas, drummer for The Black Dahlia Murder, recently went to the web to officially announce his departure from The Black Dahlia Murder. In his video statement (below) Shannon reveals he will be stepping back from his drumming duties to pursue other interests. These interests include: his project with George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher from Cannibal Corpse and Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz, a new project and to open a tattoo shop with his wife outside Richland, Virginia. Ex-Abigail Williams drummer Alan Cassidy will be filling in for the time being. Check out the official statement below.
Coming off of their recent headlining gig at this year’s Summer Slaughter, death metal title champions, Cannibal Corpse have just announced the dates for their upcoming Fall U.S. Torture tour with support incoming directly from the politically tinged deathgrinders Misery Index and Italian death metal gentlemen, Hour of Penance. Metal seems to be in full spring this Fall season. Catch the dates courtesy of Metal Underground after the jump. Continue reading
Do you guys know what the worst part of my day is? No, it’s not going to my soul crushing job, running out of weed, or falling on my skateboard. It’s actually having to listen to and write about Six Feet Under‘s new album. Cannibal Corpse #2 (aka Six Feet Under) have just made their new album, “Undead“, available for through Decibel Magazine which you can listen to here. Six Feet Under’s Undead comes out May 22 via Metal Blade.
I’m not really a fan of SFU but Undead is one of the best things I’ve ever heard by them (which isn’t saying much if anything). Undead actually didn’t leaving me wanting to jam pencils in my ears to escape boredom, however it did make me wanna listen to The Bleeding. Although I just expressed some positives about the album, I couldn’t make it through the whole thing.
What are you thoughts? Did you make it through the whole thing? Did it suck? Was it jamming? Am I just a douche bag? Let us know…

Metalblade Records is on some throwback shit with the release of a fucking commercial trying to build hype for the Summer Slaughter tour. lol, I really don’t know why labels waste their money making these commercials anymore. I mean if it’s not playing on fucking headbangers ball or uranium or something is there even a point? Do shows like that even exist anymore?
Anyway, Let’s have a roll call. How many of you guys will be attending this years edition of Summer Slaughter? I’ll probably be at the one in Dallas. I know I have previously made fun of this years line up, but it turned out better than I expected and I’ll probably be conducting some interviews, so whatevs….

Death metal legends Six Feet Under, led by former Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes, is preparing to release their next unholy slab of death and gore in the form of Undead, which will see released via Metal Blade Records on May 22nd. I’ve heard a few tracks from the album already and it sounds very promising. The band is leaning much more towards straight-up death metal and further away from the death ‘n roll sound they have utilized previously. The band have just released the first track from Undead titled “Formaldehyde” and it’s a crusher for sure. Along with the track, the band has unveiled the album art and the track listing. You can check the song and the artwork below and the track list after the jump. Enjoy.
