Best Of 2013: Eric’s Favorite Albums Of The Year


Hello again, fellow Aftermathers! My prolonged absence from the American Aftermath world officially ends NOW with this penultimate annual post, a small but personally necessary pittance to the plentiful albums and artists that sustained me throughout this most bountiful year in extreme music. The following thirty item list reflects full-length albums only with an aural adherence to the hardcore and powerviolence realms as per my listening habits this year. A ton of awesome death metal revivals as well as resurgences from other notables in the general metal realm happened this year (Gorguts, Carcass, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Ulcerate etc.) of which I listened(or rather actively listened) to practically NONE. I simply wasn’t feeling it at this year and intend to return to survey these releases at another time. Thanks to the Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane “The Machine” Oliver, and Josh Huddleston, the bands and musicians, and last but not least, you, the readers! Peep the list after the jump.

ARTIFICIAL BRAIN Streaming New Track “Absorbing Black Ignition”

Cover artwork by Paolo Girardi

Metal Sucks have premiered a new track from technical death metal miscreants Artificial Brain (Revocation, etc). The track in question is “Absorbing Black Ignition” and will be featured on the group’s forthcoming album Labyrinth Constellation, which is out on February 18th via Profound Lore. The track rips through angular, malevolent riffing in Gorgutsian fashion while chaotic vocals gurgle and growl over it all. You should enjoy it. Head over to Metal Sucks to check it out.



Revocation’s cover of Metallica’s …And Justice For All closer “Dyer’s Eve” has surfaced online for your streaming pleasure. The track appears as an exclusive vinyl bonus track on their upcoming self-titled album, due out on August 6th. After the break, listen as Revocation rip the hell out of this track and compare it to the original. Eat your heart out Metallica.

Revocation Debut New Track “Fracked”


Progressive tech thrashers Revocation are currently streaming an all new track entitled “Fracked” off of their upcoming epic fourth full length, the self-titled Revocation, exclusively over at Loudwire. The anti-fracking anthem is definitely my favorite of the teased tracks so far, a more sustained and expansive track that treads along a more progressive inclination, boasting some almost electronic sounding complimentary basswork and an epic solo section. Musings aside, you can stream “Fracked” via Loudwire here and pre-order Revocation via Relapse Records here, out August 6th. Be sure to catch Revocation on the remaining dates of this year’s excellent Summer Slaughter tour.

Good morning, readers! It’s a beautiful Friday and because it’s so nice, I thought you might wanna make it a little more enjoyable by watching this super awesome Revocation music video. The video is for the track “The Grip Tightens” which is on their new FREE EP “Tetragenesis” that you can download here.

For a metal video, this thing has some pretty lavish production. The costumes and make up are amazing. Obviously Scion A/V footed the bill for this. As I mentioned before, It’s a pretty awesome video. I mean when was the last time you saw your favorite modern thrash band in old man make up or having old bitches throw their panties at them? Never!

Well he formally addresses his departure in a video he uploaded to youtube. Here he explains his passion for pop music was much stronger than his passion for metal.
