I have never been into Bleed From Within. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever really listened to the band before I got a promo for their latest album Uprising. What I initially thought I had got my hands on was a corny deathcore album that I was going to toss to the side. Instead of just throwing it out however, I listened to it and, after some deliberation, I have come to love it. As far as metalcore goes in 2013, good bands are few and very, very far between. As it turns out, Bleed From Within are one of those good ones. Continue reading »
It may just be me, but Heaven Shall Burn‘s new album Veto is shaping up to be a killer record. The few tracks I have heard from the album are 100% Heaven Shall Burn in fashion, which is something I am a huge fan of. I have loved this band ever since I acquired their split with Caliban back in the day and I have loved each of their albums thus far in the game. I pray that Veto doesn’t let me down.

I love Heaven Shall Burn and I have for a long, long time. I have been impatiently awaiting their new album for some time and it looks like the blessed day is nearing. The band will be releasing their new album VETO on April 30th here in the states and it sounds to me that be band hasn’t lost any of their momentum. Don’t believe me? Then you should check out the new track that Heaven Shall Burn has released today! Continue reading »
One album that I listened to this year a few times but never found myself enthralled by is the new self-titled album by Pinkish Black. It’s not that Pinkish Black is a bad band, they are great at what they do but they are not my taste. It now seems that this isn’t the case for Century Media Records, who have added the band to their roster. Century has a tendency to take in bands that aren’t extreme but are still good bands. I hope Pinkish Black find a nice, dark place on their new label. The bands new album is available now via Handmade Birds and you can stream it after the jump as well as check out their upcoming tour dates. Continue reading »
LA based progressive sludge band Intronaut have just announced that they will be hitting the studio this very weekend to start recording their currently untitled (atleast publicly) new album. This new album will be the follow to their 2010 fantastic release Valley Of Smoke. As of now, nothing else has been made public other than it will be released “sometime” early 2013 on Century Media.
The group did try and help spice up this news by giving us a little taste of some new material. Based off the two jam videos I’ve seen, I’d say this album will probably be a continuation of what the band was going for on Valley. I, personally, am really really looking forward to Intronaut’s new release, and it’s not just cause I am a big fan, It’s because these teasers sound great.

I am not too familiar with the Israeli band Sonne Adam aside from seeing their name mentioned here and there around the interwebs. I knew the basic gist of what they were, a deathdoom band but until now I hadn’t checked them out. Been a little busy on the deathdoom front these days. After checking out this track off of the bands forthcoming compilation release titled Messengers of Desolate Ways which is slated for released on October 22nd via Century Media Records.
The track, called “Hater Of Mankind” is pretty killer. Crushing, atmospheric doom. The only thing that bothers me is the vocals, but I think I could get used to them pretty quickly. I think what I am most excited for with this release are the Thorns and Darkthrone covers. You know I love covers. Anyway, check out the new track after the jump and let us know what you think. Enjoy. Continue reading »
I have only gotten into Andrew W.K. within the last year. Of course I’ve known of the man for a long, long time but his music always seemed kinda goofy to me. When I finally sat down and listened to some of the dudes music, I found myself digging it a bit. I wouldn’t go out and say that I am an Andrew W.K. fan but I admire him for what he has done with his New York venue Santos Party House in helping support the metal scene and also that Obituary‘s Donald Tardy helped to form Andrew‘s band when he was getting started.
None of this is the point of this post, however. No, this post is to inform you all that Andrew has released a new music video for his track “It’s Time To Party” which comes off of his forthcoming album I Get Wet which will be released by Century Media Records on August 29th. This video is fun and whacky, but what else would you expect from Mr. W.K.? Check out the regular version of the video below and see the “sound effects only” version after the jump. Enjoy.

Legendary death metal horde Grave, who I posted about not too long ago, are prepping the release of their new album Endless Procession Of Souls which will be released on August 28th via Century Media Records and the band is currently streaming a new song! Yes! Grave‘s new song “Perimortem” is an unholy force of pure fucking death metal. Real death metal, the way it used to be. Grave have never lost their edge and this new album is sounding like it will fucking destroy all around. Head over to CVLT Nation to stream this sick and twisted bastard.
Have you been stoked for the new Nachtmystium? Well, if not you should be. Why? Because it fucking rips. Silencing Machine is a brutal, in-your-face black metal attack that only Nachtmystium could bring you. If you were worried about how the band’s new music sounds based off of their As Made single, fear not because it sounds nothing like As Made. No, this is pure fucking black metal. So stop whatever you are doing and stream this beast over at SPIN. You can check out a track from the album below and then continue on and get your mind blown.
Silencing Machine is available now via Century Media Records.
I was kinda into Norther one summer a few years ago. I went through a weird phase and found myself listening to them quite a bit. I think I was also into Children Of Bodom at that point, so yeah… Well, I haven’t listened to Norther in a while, but today I learned that the band will be calling it quits after sixteen years. It sucks to see any band break up, but it could have happened to better bands, I suppose. Anyway, check out a Norther track below and after the jump you can read what the band had to say on splitting up. Norther‘s last album Circle Regenerated was released in 2011 by Century Media Records. [Continue...]
I really, really like Ion Dissonance. Of all of the deathcore acts, they are definitely one of the best and most tolerable and I was talking to Antoine Lussier (Ion Dissonance‘s guitarist) a while back, for an interview that should be coming soon, and he mentioned a new album. Well, we now have a little teaser for said album. Unfortunately there’s no music yet, but there will be seven tracks totaling in at nineteen minutes. No track titles or album title have been revealed yet but knowing that it will be released in 2012 is good enough for me. Enjoy an Ion Dissonance track above and see the photo posted on their Facebook page below. [Continue...]
Fuck yes. Nachtmystium are amazing and I have been anticipating the release of their new album Silencing The Machine which will be released on July 31st via Century Media Records. This band is great and from what I have heard, Silencing The Machine will not disappoint whatsoever. The band is currently streaming a new track called “I Wait In Hell” which fucking rips. You can stream the track below and see if it gets you hot and hard like it did me. Yeeeeeah.
Do you love death metal? Yeah? Then you love Grave. They are just one of those bands that once you hear, you’re hooked. I’ve been a fan of Gravefor a long time now and I have been getting excited for the release of their new album Endless Procession Of Souls which will be released on August 27th via Century Media Records. I have just gotten my first taste of this new album via the track “Passion Of The Weak” which is streaming in the video below. It’s a crushing display of death metal that sticks true to how the sound should stay over the last twenty-something years. This makes me even more excited to hear this new album. Check out the track and leave a comment with your thoughts.
I love Napalm Death, but no matter how awesome everyone said their new album was, I wasn’t really into it. Time Waits For No Slave was amazing, but Utilitarian was kinda meh in my eyes. Not really sure why, there was just a lot of stuff happening on that album that rubbed me the wrong way. Kinda like the clean vocals on the song “The Wolf I Feed.” That whole track is just kinda…. Yeah. Anyway, Napalm Death have released a new music video for that track. The video doesn’t really do it for me, but yeah. Check it out below.
I posted about Morbus Chron back in January and I was really pleased with the bands execution of old school death metal for the twenty-first century. Sure, a lot of bands do this, but few as well as Morbus Chron. This Swedish act is planning to release a new three-song EP titled A Saunter Through The Shroud on July 23rd and they are currently streaming a new track over at the German site RockHard.de. This new track is fantastic, so you should all stop what you’re doing and go check this bad boy out. It’s called “Channeling The Numinous.” Go listen and then come back and talk about it in the comments section. Enjoy.
