REVOCATION Streaming New Track “Labyrinth Of Eyes”

      Sample

Revocation have unleashed “Labyrinth Of Eyes”, the third single from the group’s upcoming fifth LP and Metal Blade Records debut, Deathless. Taking a retreat from the brutality of the two prior singles, “Madness Opus” and “Deathless”, “Labyrinth Of Eyes” is a mid-paced, technical and rather notey number, invoking Cynic-ian overtones whilst  still maintaining the darker feel of the new album. Check out “Labyrinth Of Eyes” via Invisible Oranges here and pre-order Deathless out next Tuesday via Metal Blade Records here. Catch Revocation supporting Deathless now on the remaining dates of their current tour run with the legendary Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse and later on their European run with Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and even later on their Australian run with Thy Art Is Murder, full details below.  Continue reading

Audio terrorists Full Of Hell have released a video for “Blue Litmus”, the second single off of the group’s November 25th expected collaboration LP with renowned noise artist Merzbow, Full Of Hell & Merzbow. Directed by Jim Thayne, the video features live footage of the band interspersed with graphic videos of deaths, immolation and suicides blasted by a projector. Musically, the track unveils a further glimpse into the more apparent death metal/grind direction of the record, with a welcome change being a greater clarity for the basswork of Brandon Brown. Check out “Blue Litmus” below and look out for pre-orders (of which the first 100 will receive an exclusive noise tape compiling all of Full of Hell’s noise work in addition to extras) for Full Of Hell & Merzbow, set to start sometime this week via Profound Lore Records.

Chicago hardcore grind unit Sick/Tired are set to release their third full-length LP, Dissolution, this Halloween on A389 Recordings and have released a bludgeoning new track entitled “Descent” to tease the occasion. Not that any such invite is needed. The Chicago fiends have proved their salt over a back catalog of nine past releases, cementing brutal supremacy from their produced debut 7″ EP to last year’s lo-fi-esque King Of Dirt LP. Check out “Descent” over at Invisible Oranges here and pre-order Sick/Tired’s Dissolution, which features a Merzbow collab on its title track, via A389 Recordings here.

BLOODBATH Unveil New Track “Unite In Pain” And Album Details

Ester Segarra

Following a series of return announcements on Metal Hammer magazine, the newly-Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost) fronted Bloodbath  have unleashed “Unite In Pain”, the first taste of the death metal supergroup’s long-awaited upcoming LP, Grand Morbid Funeral, due out November 17th on Peaceville Records. The track itself is a move backwards towards the group’s time on Nightmares Made Flesh and Resurrection Made Carnage rather than the more groove-oriented The Fathomless Mastery, grimier HM-2 sound, death metal explosions and familiar doomy dirges all in tow. In lieu of Peter Tagtren and Mikael Akerfeldt’s former capacities in the band, Holmes fills his vocal role well, adding a more clarified and pronounced growl to the mix. Stream “Unite In Pain” exclusively via Metal Hammer here, peep the track-list for Grand Morbid Funeral below and pre-order the record on CD, vinyl and bundle packages via Peaceville Records here and O-Merch here.

Audio terrorists Full Of Hell are currently streaming “Gordian Knot”, the first cut off of their upcoming collaborative LP with renown Japanese noise artist Merzbow, exclusively over at Noisey. Delivering on the band’s promise to continue to push their aural boundaries to further realms of harshness and inaccessibility, the new track deters away from the band’s groovier dark hardcore beginnings in place of a newer adherence to the rasp of death metal and grindcore, a direction the full album is due to pursue. Stream “Gordian Knot” via Noisey here along with an interview with vocalist Dylan Walker on the band’s new alliance with label Profound Lore, commentary on the development of the new album as well as information on the second bonus album included exclusively with the CD version of the band’s upcoming LP. In addition, Full Of Hell are set to embark on an Australian tour with Idylls and Machina Genova late November. Peep dates for that tour below.

Full Of Hell & Merzbow arrives November 25th on CD via Profound Lore Records and vinyl via A389 Recordings. Full Of Hell’s most recent release was an exclusive 2014 Record Store Day split with Dwid Hellion (Integrity) noise project Psywarfare.

Out of the blue, Greensboro, NC grindcore/crust unit Torch Runner have returned, along with details for their upcoming sophomore LP, Endless Nothing, which if the debut single “Godlust” is any sign, signals only an amplification of brutalistic quality for the group. Due out September 30th via Southern Lord Records, Endless Nothing is an effort “reaching new depths of auditory violence”, according to the group’s press release. As the evidence stands so far, I believe it. Check out the new track “Godlust” along with full album artwork and tracklistings for Endless Nothing below.

GRAF ORLOCK Streaming “A Decent Proposal In A Shitty Alley”

GRAF-2014

Cinemagrind executioners Graf Orlock are back with “A Decent Proposal In A Shitty Alley”,  the second cut of three (of which the third features actor Kevin Gage in some manner) off of their Trailer EP, the prelude and teaser to the group’s upcoming Fall LP Crime Traveller. Among the longer of the group’s tracks and possibly its longest, the over four minute track appeals more to the group’s hardcore direction as explored in their Los Angeles EP with the lingering progression of southern-tinged hard rock, not far off of Every Time I Die’s trajectory.  Stream the track exclusively via Noisey here, pre-order Trailer via Vitriol Records here or pick it up live on one of the band’s dates on their upcoming East Coast tour with Holy and Dangers, full dates and details below.  Continue reading

Following both a short live return last April as well as a recorded one via the release of this year’s Decline & Fall EP,  industrial metal mammoths Godflesh have officially announced details for their upcoming LP, A World Lit Only By Fire, the group’s first since 2001′s Hymns. Set to be unleashed October 6th via frontman Justin K. Broadrick’s very own Avalanche Recordings, track listing and artwork for A World Lit Only By Fire can be viewed below in addition to a stream of the battering debut single “New Dark Ages”, a number which mirrors the trudge and grime of the group’s early discography. According to some investigation by metal site Blabbermouth who tracked down an interview by Broadrick with French station Le 106, you can expect more of the same on the full-length. Both Godflesh practitioners, Green and Broadrick noted in the radio interview that Fire will be a return to form, adhering to the initial essence of the band and the direction and spirit of the first three releases.
