Review: CONFINE – “Setting Fire To The Western Hemisphere”

What happens when you mix members of four of the UKs most brilliant and brutal grind bands? You get a sickening masterpiece that goes by the name of Confine. Featuring members of Oblivionized, The Human Cull, Corrupt Moral Altar and The Afternoon Gentlemen, this band is an entity that will blast you right out of your seat. The band recently released their debut 8-track album titled Setting Fire To The Western Hemisphere and I am taken aback by how fucking insane this record is.      Continue reading

Split At The Seams: OBLIVIONIZED To Release Three New Splits

You guys know I am an Oblivionized fanboy by now, basically because they are killer dudes and their tunes are fucking destructive. I have loved all of their music they have released and now I learn that the band is planning to release three new splits!

No definite date has been given to any of these splits, but Zac (vocals) announced via an interview with Decibel Magazine that the band will be releasing splits with Plague Widow, Fuck The Facts and Human Cull. So these Brits are planning to release three splits with three bands from three different countries. This sounds like the fucking trifecta to me. Amirite? Check out Oblivionized‘s last EP which was released on Grindcore Karaoke in March below and get stoked. Check out the full dB interview here.

“Just A Game Of Tetris…”: OBLIVIONIZED + HUMAN CULL Tour Mini-Documentary Posted

Last month Oblivionized and Human Cull went on a tour of the UK and Zac Broughton (vocals for Oblivionized) filmed not only the bands live performances but also a lot of wild, cooky and hilarious moments that occurred when the band was off of the stage. This video was sent to me yesterday by Zac and I fucking love it. My initial statement when hearing Edd Robinson’s (of Human Cull) talking voice for the first time: “Woah. With a voice like that, this dude needs to be in action movies!” Check out the Tour Documentary below and pick up Oblivonized‘s new promo on Grindcore Karaoke here and Human Cull‘s new release Split Second Extinction here. Grind on.

Circle Of Deprivation: OBLIVIONIZED Release New Track

My homies from across the pond Oblivionized have been hard at work on a new promo release called Nullify The Cycle. I mean, they have seriously been working their asses off on this promo and I think it’s paying off because they just released a new track titled “Cycle Of Deprivation” and it fucking rips. It’s fast and aggressive and it keeps Oblivionized signature technical deathgrind take on music. Check out the track below. Get fucking wrecked. Nullify The Cycle will be release for free soon. Not confirmed, but it may be released via a popular grind label. I guess we’ll see!

REGURGITATE LIFE Perform New Song Live!

I haven’t talked about Regurgitate Life nearly enough, but I hope I got my point across on my last post about Mr. Sammy Urwin. If you didn’t pay attention to the previous post, then I guess I’ll break it down for you. Sammy Urwin, who plays guitar in the awe-inspiring Oblivionized, a technical deathgrind band from the UK but he also has his own solo progressive death metal band called Regurgitate Life. Regurgitate Life is an amazing project and recently Sammy performed a new song live. This song will be coming off of Regurgitate Life’s forthcoming record. Check it out in the clip below.

REGURGITATE LIFE Definitely Does Not Lack Comprehension!

Sammy Urwin is a phenomenal musician. Not only does he play guitar in the incredible band Oblivionized, he also fronts his own solo project called Regurgitate Life. Regurgitate Life is a killer progressive death metal entity hailing from the UK. This is some seriously gnarly tunes. Obvious Death influences are at play here. You can stream and download Regurgitate Life’s 2011 Promo for free on Bandcamp. I thought I would show you where Sammy draws some influences from with a few cover tracks he has posted on You Tube. The first one you will see is a cover of Death’s “Lack of Comprehension” and after the jump you can see his cover of Morbid Angel’s “Rapture.” Enjoy and support.

ICONIC DESTRUCTION Are Going To Get Ambient On Your Asses!

Surely you remember me worshipping my homie Zac Broughton’s (Oblivionized) solo project Iconic Destruction? Well if you don’t, to hell with you. Iconic Destruction is Zac’s black metal project that I am quite fond of for many reasons. One of which is that… Well, I love black metal. Zac has released three records and one split (with Teeth and Thorns) as Iconic Destruction through his Malignant Manifestations Productions and it’s all good.

Zac revealed to me last night that he was almost complete with ID’s new album, just a few finishing touches needed to be made. He told me this after he posted a new song on ID’s Bandcamp page. This new song is called “The Vicissitude Of Self” and I am not even kidding, I had to look the word “Vicissitude” up and what I found was this:

A change of circumstances or fortune, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant.

Well, that’s cool. The song is one big slap of ambiance and it’s oh so good. As I told Zac, this song is a fantastic teaser and just leaves me wanting more. Check out the song below and tell me what you think. Enjoy.

OBLIVIONIZED Prepare To Nullify The Cycle (Session 1: Drums)

What you see above is the first of three studio updates coming from my British brothers Oblivionized. You may remember that I have worshiped these guys on more than one occasion and now I get a reason to again. Vocalist Zac Broughton recently got in touch with me and let me in on a pretty sweet piece of information concerning Oblivionized. The band is currently in the studio recording a two-song promo titled Nullify The Cycle. This new promo will feature songs titled “The Nullification of Philathropy and “Cycle of Deprivation.” As soon as Zac mentioned new material, I was instantly interested. This promo is being self-produced by the band (as their Abhorrent Evolution EP was) and is currently being recorded. The recording is being done in three sessions. The first (the video above) is drumming, the next session to come will be the guitars and bass and finally the vocals will be laid down. After the vocals are complete and production has finished, the band will release the promo for free download.

I will be hosting these videos updates as they come in. Guitar/bass tracking will be coming in next week, so be sure to stay tuned for that. If you need something to hold you over until Nullify The Cycle promo or if you still haven’t listened to Oblivionized, head over to their Bandcamp page and jam that shit out. Check out the promo artwork after the jump.
