      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

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.
