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 »
Season Of Mist Records has now made The Casualties new album, “Resistance“, available for streaming. This 15 track album clocks in at 37 minutes and features the singles “My Blood. My Life. Always Forward.” and “Brick Wall Justice”. The Casualties “Resistance” is an instant street punk classic and is already in stores, so if you like it, buy it, cause you know, buying shit is punk!

Longstanding hardcore punk band The Casualties have released a new song off of their Season Of Mist debut Resistance which will be released on September 25th. This track is fantastic. I wasn’t big on The Casualties last album, but if “My Blood. My Life. Always Forward.” is any indication of how this new album will sound, I’m in. It sounds pretty solid to me. Check out the track below and tell us what you think in the comments section.
Following Lane’s fantastic review of the new EP by enigmatic French black metal unit Deathspell Omega, you can now stream the album via Season of Mist’s Bandcamp page (via the widget below). This EP is extremely powerful and fucking phenomenal. It is definitely one of my favorite releases of 2012 and I am sure it will be pretty high on my year-end list come December. So, without further ado, stream Drought below. Enjoy.
Drought was released on June 22nd via Season Of Mist.
Saint Vitus are fucking legends and one of my favorite bands, not only in the doom genre, but ever. Their music is crushing and serene all at the same time. The band has released two tracks from their forthcoming album Lillie: F-65 which is do out on April 27th via Season Of Mist Records. My favorite of the two songs released, “Let Them Fall” now has a fantastic music video to go along with it. It’s actually a very strange music video. Why, you ask? Because everyone is crying. Everyone. Is fucking crying. Throughout the entirevideo. Anyway, it’s still a great song. Check out the video below.
I still hate fucking lyric videos. Seriously, I do. I didn’t make that post the other day for nothing. I fucking despise lyrics videos even if they are from bands that I love. Like Dodecahedron. Amazing band, have just release two lyrics videos for tracks off their debut album. Check ‘em out below, I guess. I still don’t support this.
Yes, Orange Goblin has released a new music video for their track “Red Tide Rising” which comes off of the bands latest release No Eulogy For The Damned which was released today on Season of Mist Records. This video came out last week but I am just now hearing about it, so it’s news to me. Check it out below and be sure to pick up No Eulogy For The Damned now!
