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.

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.
