Holy hell. Talk about extreme meets extreme, Mortals will be teaming up with crusty blackened act Wolvhammer around Halloween and running through mid-November. This tour is sure to decimate all reality and if you are anywhere within the vicinity of at least one of these shows, I highly recommend checking it out. You’ve got crust and you’ve got filth, all packed into one space, so what’s not to be stoked about? Check out the dates after the jump! Continue reading
To keep up with the dooming, I am beyond stoked that Pallbearer are not only releasing an album soon, but they are currently streaming said album! That’s right, the Arkansan crushers of souls are currently streaming their new record Foundations Of Burden over on Pitchfork. So yeah, what are you still doing here? Go check out what could possibly be the greatest doom album of the year. Foundations will be released on August 19th via Profound Lore Records.
It’s always a bummer when bands you really love decide to call it a day. This has been the case many times for me with bands like Alexisonfire, Bone Dance and Heartless and now another band has been laid to rest: Castevet. The post-rock/black metal band formed in 2006 and released two full-length albums and an EP on top of relentless touring and gigging around the world. This band will definitely be missed and I’m sad to see them go. After the jump you can stream the bands most recent album Obsian as well as their previous LP Mounds Of Ash. Continue reading

This has been a good few days for music by bands that I love. The latest in this comes from the blackened crust entity Wolvhammer. These guys are holding one of the most coveted spots on my most anticipated albums list this year and based off the one song I’ve heard now, the bands new album definitely will not disappoint. The debut track from Clawing Into Black Sun is “Death Division” and it is an all-expansive beast of a track that harnesses every sound that Wolvhammer have ever experimented with. So, yeah. Basically, it rules. Check it out below courtesy of Decibel. Continue reading
Earlier this month The Atlas Moth gave us the first track from their forthcoming record The Old Believer and now the band has issued another new beast. This track is called “Sacred Vine” and it is beautiful, moving and an all around amazing track. Of course, what the hell would you expect from The Atlas Moth other than perfection? Check out the track over on AltPress right now. Seriously. Do it. The Old Believer is out June 10th via Profound Lore Records.
I don’t know if any of you are as excited about the prospect of new Wolvhammer as I am, but if you’re not, you totally should be. This band is destruction incarnate. Pure blackened crust filth from a band that does absolutely no wrong. After the jump you can check out a teaser for the bands new album Clawing Into Black Sun as well as the bands last album. Check it. Continue reading
After three long years, The Atlas Moth are back and they will destroy you. The band will be releasing their new album The Old Believer later this year but they have just unleashed a monster in the form of their song “Collider.” This track is soothing, heavy and beautifully executed. You can stream the track over on Pitchfork.
What are you still doing here? Go listen to The Atlas Moth!
Monstrous doom band Coffinworm have finished their new album “IV.I.VIII” and is slated for a March 19th release date through Profound Lore Records. Want to hear the new track? Enjoy the new song “Lust vs. Vengeance” after the break. Track list is shown below. I know I am picking up this album!
I have waited three years for new Castevet material and I won’t say I have been patient. I adore the NYC blackened horde and I could listen to their music for days on end. Therefore, when I learned they were releasing a new album, I lost my shit. When I found out that the folks over at Noisey were streaming the aforementioned new album, I fainted. When I awoke, I went and jammed this powerhouse of post blackened whatever. What I found was salvation. Continue reading
Boy, do I love the filthy British death dealers Grave Miasma. These guys have one of the largest cult followings of any newer OSDM bands around and for good reason. With just two EPs under their belt to date, Grave Miasma have spewed forth disgust and raw impurity over and over and now the band is prepping the release of their debut full-length album Odori Sepulcrorum.
And for all of you dying to hear the beast within, Odori Sepulcrorum has been made available to stream over on Pitchfork, but the link will go dead tomorrow. If you want to stream this monster, you can do so via the YouTube widget below. Trust me, you want to dirty your hands with this one. Continue reading
Filth-ridden British death metal act Grave Miasma, who are planning to release their new album next month, have just unleashed a monster of a new track. This blistering hunk of death metal is phenomenally crafted and loaded down with distortion, pain and misery. I mean, of course it is. It’s fucking Grave Miasma! Check out the new track “Ovation To A Thousand Lost Reveries” below. You’ll love it. Continue reading
First we lost A Life Once Lost and now we’ve lost Altar Of Plagues, both called it quits after releasing incredible albums, the latter of which is in the running for one of my favorite albums of the year. Teethed Glory And Injury is a stunning black metal release by a band who knows what the hell they
are were doing. James Kelly, the bands vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist, has released a statement, in which he tells the world that Altar of Plagues is no more. Continue reading
Altar Of Plagues are one of the most fascinating bands I have ever gotten into. These Irish black metallers have blown me away ever since I heard their debut album and each of their subsequent releases since. The band is prepping the release of their new album Teethed Glory And Injury and in anticipation of it’s release, the band is currently streaming this beautiful release! Click through to find out where! Continue reading
