Japanese metallic hardcore outfit, Palm, are currently streaming their latest ripper of an EP, The Unusual, in full over at Noisey. Recorded and mixed over at California’s very own The Pit Studios with Taylor Young of Twitching Tongues and Nails fame and mastered by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege Studios and From Ashes Rise fame, The Unusual follows up the group’s 2012 LP, My Darkest Friends, with three cut-throat tracks again taking ample influence from contemporary American hardcore as well as the fury of the old guard via Bastard and Framtid. Stream The Unusual exclusively via Noisey here and pre-order the extremely limited vinyl (out of 333) via Six Feet Under Records here.
Hardcore simians Primate (Brutal Truth, Mastodon, etc) have confirmed tour dates for their overseas South Pacific trek that will commence in early January of next year. The band will be supported by the likes of Portland crossover unit Wehrmact and Swedish death metallers Grave. You can view the tour schedule after the break as well as jam Primate’s debut album Draw Back a Stump.
The doom metal tyrants of Japan, Coffins, have revealed the dirty details on their highly anticipated fourth full length LP, The Fleshland. The Fleshland will be Coffins’ first full length 2008’s Buried Death and will feature nine new horrendously dissonant tracks. The Fleshland will also be the band’s debut on Relapse Records, which will release the new record on July 9th in North America. Relapse has a slew of pre-order packages available at this location. Below you will be pleased to find the new offering’s artwork and track listing as well as the album trailer. Enjoy!
Back in March Japan’s deathdoom annihilators Coffins released a EP of cover tracks and I was fucking pumped at this news. I have since not been able to get my filthy paws on this monstrosity and up until recently I thought it would never come within my grasp. Wellllllllllll lucky for me (and possibly you), Coffins Sewage Sludgecore Treatment is now available on Bandcamp to be streamed/purchased! Yay! Continue reading
Prior to their short run of dates in Japan, Converge and Old Man Gloom are planning to devastate Australia and New Zealand in February. I would kill to be at one of these shows so I will have to live vicariously through you Australian and Japanese readers…if you even exist! Check out the scheduled dates as well as a song from each band below.
Converge and Old Man Gloom are slated to play together in Japan in February. The two bands will play three shows total which include:
02/19 Shibuya, JAP – Club Quattro
02/20 Imaike, JAP – Bottom Line
02/21 Umeda, JAP – Akaso
Oh if only this tour was in the US instead. Sad face. Converge’s All We Love We Leave Behind and Old Man Gloom’s NO are available now.

Coffins, one of my favorite bands in the deathdoom scene, signed to Relapse Records last year and I have been highly anticipating their new album (especially since I cannot get my hands on their recently-released covers EP). If you, like me, can’t wait to hear new tunes from the Japanese doomsters, you can now stream a new track below, courtesy of Decibel Magazine. This track will be featured as Decibel’s Flexi Disc series in September’s issue, but it hasn’t been ruled out as a one-off track. This just might be a track off of their forthcoming Relapse debut. Regardless, the track destroys, as I knew it would. Check it out below and leave a comment letting us know how you feel about it.
The Japanese instrumental band with a penchant for grand scale musical compositions have announced that they will release a new record entitled For My Parents on September 4th through Temporary Residence LTD. The band has recruited the Wordless Music Orchestra for the recording of this new album. I am excited to hear this thing as Mono are one of the better post-rock/instrumental acts around. Don’t believe me? Listen to their track “Ashes in the Snow” and see for yourself.
