If you’re a fan of black metal, you’re a fan of Drudkh. You have to be. This band quickly became legendary and they have released nothing but captivating, beautifully organic black metal for over a decade. Drudkh will be releasing a split with English black metal entity Winterfylleth next year and it is already sounding like the raddest split of the year.
Drudkh has released one of their songs off of the split, which will feature only cover songs, and it is amazing. It is a cover of Hefeystos‘ 1997 track “… W Krainie Drzew.” Check it out: Continue reading
Kylesa released their latest album Ultraviolet earlier this year and the band has now released their latest music video for the song “Low Tide.” Well, I say music video but it’s really deep, powerful visualization set to the song. It’s pretty rad. You can check out the video after the jump. Seriously. Check it out. This album was a sleeper for me this year and now I’m having to play catch up. Don’t let this happen to you.

German black metal outfit Endstille are preparing to release their latest offering Kapitulation 2013 and the band has just unleashed their new music video for the track “Aborted.” The video tells a story, but it is a bit graphic in parts. All in all, it’s not a bad video however the high contrast black and white annoys me a bit. Check out the video after the jump and see if it tickles your fancy. Continue reading
Rotting Christ have been a staple in the extreme music scene for a long, long time. The band has had quite a few genre shifts in their career, starting off as a grindcore bands before switching to straight-forward black metal and now to blackened extreme whateveryouwant. Regardless, the band’s career has ebbed and flowed with me, with some albums standing out much more than others. The band’s latest album Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy has stuck with me, however, and I see it as one of their best releases in years.
The band has recently released a new music video for the final track on Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy titled “666,” which you can check out below. Continue reading
Southern sludge stalwarts Kylesa have released a rad new music video for their track “Unspoken,” which comes off of their latest release Ultraviolet. This video is like none that I have seen lately. It’s pretty fucking incredible. Beautifully drawn images brought to life and set to the tune of the fabulous Kylesa. Check out the video below. Continue reading
It takes a lot for me to like clean vocals riding over heavy music. I mean a lot. The band has to be pretty spectacular for me to let clean vocals ride even if it’s only every once in a while on an album. I have granted leniency to some bands like Holy Grail and As I Lay Dying and now I will be worshiping the awe-inspiring music that comes from Canada’s Anciients. This band came out of nowhere for me. I have never heard a single thing about them until their album came to me. I was initially very concerned that it would be something that I would not enjoy. I pressed play and I was instantly proven wrong. Continue reading
War From A Harlots Mouth is a band that I liked in the past who released an album last year that completely blew me away. Voyeur fucking soared into my year-end list immediately after me hearing it for the first time. It’s such an amazing album that I still find myself constantly listening to it. What makes this better? One of my favorite tracks from the album, “Vertigo,” now has a cinematic equivalent! Continue reading
When it comes to death metal, you people should know I am a huge fan. Something I may not have told you though is that I have a lot of respect for one-man death metal bands. Having been involved in quite a few solo projects myself, I understand how complicated it can be to execute a single song by yourself, let alone an entire album. I would say the best part about doing a solo project is that there are no creative differences between band members. It either works or it doesn’t. Continue reading
A few days ago I talked about KEN Mode and their new album and just like fucking clockwork, these dudes have released a new track! If you missed my aforementioned post, I talked about their upcoming album Entrench which will be released in late March via Season Of Mist Records. So yeah, if that didn’t excite you enough, wait until you hear this new song. Continue reading
I don’t know about you people, but I love KEN Mode. Their music is mesmerizing and memorable and it comes across in such a raw and aggressive way that it’s hard to turn away. The band released their last album in March of 2011 and I have been itching for new KEN Mode. Well, the Canadian heavy-hitters must have heard my plea, because they have announced a slew of details concerning their new album and their recent label signing! Continue reading
Back in November I told you about Rotting Christ‘s forthcoming album Do What Thou Wilt which is set for release on March 5th via Season Of Mist. I also mentioned how I haven’t really listened to the band for quite some time, but after hearing the new track off of the album, I might just be checking this one out. Now, while I don’t see this as one of the greatest things in upcoming metal history, there is something about this track that I just don’t hate.
If you want to experience this for yourself, check out “In Yumen/Xibalba” after the jump. It’s Rotting Christ, that’s for sure. Now I’m gonna go listen to Sleep Of The Angels. Continue reading
Remember when I told you fucks that Rotten Sound were working on a new 6-song EP? Well, if not, I totally told you that and now the band has issued numerous details concerning the EP, which will be called Species At War. Rotten Sound have teamed up with Season Of Mist to release the EP.
Species At War will be released on January 18th and you can see the artwork at the top of this post. After the jump you can read a blurb from Rotten Sound vocalist Keijo and check out the track list. Are you pumped? Continue reading
I have been a fan of A Life Once Lost for a long time and whenever I hear a new album by the band, I am instantly blown away. A Life Once Lost have a penchant for creating aggressive, dissonant, catchy and grooving metal that I can never get enough of. Constantly chugging and driving, A Life Once Lost have been and are one of my favorite heavy bands.
When I got my filthy paws on their new album Ecstatic Trance, I had an idea of what was in store for me, but I didn’t think I would be engulfed in it the way I am. Every single song tells an exciting and angry story and each song is just as or more brutal than the one before it. I find myself nodding relentlessly and gasping for breath after I finish Ecstatic Trance. It’s a fulfilling metal release and it fucking destroys. Continue reading
