Hey, cannibalistic cohorts. Slamming down some Annie’s bunny pasta like a god damn party animal right now and eager to give you the scoop on some cool new metal news for the day. In an effort to cover a little more ground with my zany schedule (and also because I am generally happier when I am a chatty Cathy and not  just drearily re-posting press releases under the gun), I am gonna try to do some daily little mini lists of cool condensed happenings as well as our usual style posts. We will see how long it lasts. Anyway, let’s hit the battlefield running.

Secret Cutter have streamed the closing track “Oblivion” (not a Mastodon cover, yo) from their new record Quantum Eraser over at the fine site Invisible Oranges.

Says the Pennsylvania based band of the track, “‘Oblivion’ is, for lack of a better term, the grand finale of our second LP Quantum Eraser. It is the last and heaviest song on the record. Musically, the song was written as a funeral march. The song addresses taking the wrong path til the end, caused by self-delusion and trusting the wrong people.”

 

Let SECRET CUTTER’s “Oblivion” out of the cage at Invisible Oranges RIGHT HERE.

 

Progressive wing spreaders Redemption have launched the “Indulge In Color” play through video. On July 27th, Redemption will release their seventh full-length album, Long Night’s Journey into Day – the first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.). Check out the video HERE.

 

“We have a number of elements to our sound, from more aggressive riff-driven material, to more melodic metal with technical elements, to more progressive material,” says Nick van Dyk. “It’s hard to capture our sound with just one song. So we’re particularly excited to release this longer track that showcases our more progressive elements and Tom’s amazing singing in that context. I know people are eager to hear how he sounds on this type of track and I think his performance here is going to blow people away.” 

 

Aethereus have partnered with No Clean Singing to premiere a new song called “The Pale Beast”, the first single from the Tacoma, Washington headbanger’s debut album Absentia. This band has a lot of potential and could certainly be a Summer Slaughter type of contender. Incidentally, Summer Slaughter dates are here, come to think of it. I shoulda been plugging that more of late. Shit has been crazy, sorry. And yeah, Aethereus are not on it but maybe in the future?

You CAN however listen to Aethereus – “The Pale Beast” HERE.

We recommend you do so loudly. Absentia is the group’s first release with new members Matt Behner on drums (ex-Fully Consumed/ex-Year of Desolation) along with Vance Bratcher (Vocalist) and Scott Hermanns (Bassist) who play in the highly praised Seattle symphonic death metal outfit The Devils of Loudon.
Hails.
