MUTOID MAN Streaming New Album “Bleeder”

Mutoid Man (Converge/Cave In) have premiered their debut full-length record, Bleeder, over at Noisey. The album will officially be released next Tuesday, June 30, via Sargent House. Pre-orders can still be found here. Fans of their debut EP, Helium Head, will be enamored with this new release. The hard rocking melodies and swagger and the angular chaos all make a welcomed return here. Stream it for yourself after the break.

In related news, it looks like Cave In‘s future is uncertain according to frontman Stephen Brodsky. His comments are as follows:

“I think the trickiest thing with Cave In is that we haven’t put out a record in like four years so I think for that band there’s a real sort of thriving element to being creative and just sort of playing shows without having a new record to sort of promote or even a label behind us- like as of now Cave In technically doesn’t have even a label. Cave In is just sort of at this stationary point where we’re not quite sure what the next move is or if there is one at this point.”

AT THE GATES, CONVERGE, & VALLENFYRE Announced For 2015 Decibel Magazine Tour

Decibel, America’s only monthly heavy metal magazine, has arguably packaged the sickest tour of next year. I mean, what could possibly top this? Recently reunited At The Gates with Converge, Vallenfyre, and an unannounced guest will be touring the country in 2015.

The Summer Slaughter Tour is supposed to be the “festival” that keeps all the metal extremists at bay, but the Decibel Magazine Tour has been 4 for 4 on sick lineups since its inception in 2102.  When Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, and Immolation is your weakest tour lineup, you must be doing something right.

Unfortunately the tour misses key parts the country, like Texas for one, but considering At The Gates have not toured North America since 2008, this tour is well worth the drive. Having support from fucking Converge and Vallenfyre (their first U.S. tour) definitely helps with the decision making.

Check the dates:

March 27 @The Wiltern, Los Angeles, CA
March 28 @The Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA
March 29 @Roseland Theater, Portland, OR

OLD MAN GLOOM Streaming New Track “Predators”

Old Man Gloom (Ex-Isis, Converge, Cave In) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, over at Noisey. The new track is the six minute “Predators” and being subjected to its sludge-ridden riffs, which are propelled by Caleb Scolfield’s (Cave In, Zozobra) gruff vocals, is like being flattened under a train repeatedly. Feel free to stream the new track after the break and check out previously released track, “The Lash”, if you missed it.

The Ape of God will be released on November 11th. A documentary film on the band is slated to premiere this Thursday, October 9th. The trailer for that film can be seen after the break as well.
