Stream Oceano’s best album yet “Revelation” in full

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 5:43 AM (PST)

Oceano’s unforgiving latest album Revelation  will not sway you if the band’s low end heavy brutal death core with utterly guttural vocals and random technical and rhythmic flourishes is too much for you. Personally, I think this new record is their finest yet and shows the band adding more consistent heft to past albums that had moments but often some filler tracks as well. Decide for yourself below and slam your neighbors today.

Entrails premiere latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:56 PM (PST)

Swedish death metallers Entrails have released their latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)” off of their upcoming album World Inferno which is due out on June 16  via Metal Blade Records.

Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments:

“It’s about time to unleash our next beast called ‘Serial Murder (Death Squad)’ – that means you should roll up your sleeves, loosen up your ponytail and get in the mood with a proper beer and prepare yourself for a trip among serial murders. The Death Squad awaits you!”

Dan Swano, who mixed and mastered the record had this to say:

“I don’t know if I had said this before, but I say it again. Every time I start thinking about putting together some new SweDeath project, Entrails show up at my doorstep with a new album to mix, and every time I think ‘Fuck!! – What’s the point in making my own project when this is so fucking good, and exactly what I wanted to do…’ And if I felt there were some details to improve upon from our previous work together, they fix that and then some, and return with an album even stronger than the previous one. What the fuck is going on in Linneryd!? Is Jimmy cloning death metal warriors in some barn over there or what!? To sum it up. Yet another amazing slab of SweDeath coming your way from Entrails! Beyond. Blown. Away!”

Suffocation “Return To The Abyss”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 5:39 AM (PST)

Ok, so this new Suffocation song “Return To The Abyss” is a total monster. That’s my welcome just desserts for saying yesterday I was feeling more pumped for the new Pathology. Really feeling this song “Return To The Abyss” more than the first single “Your Last Breaths”, which was good but…this one is damn near flawless death metal. Still not super crazy about the snare sound but, we will let that go. Def probably going to buy this record when it comes out.

When considering a post mid point 00’s death metal band, Pathology are beyond a doubt one of the strongest and sickest death metal bands to carve out quite a formidable recorded legacy. The band has churned a remarkable nine albums out since 2006, including their well regarded trio of Victory blood chuggers (2011’s Awaken to the Suffering being a personal game changer). This band along with Rivers Of Nihil and certain elements of better Job For A Cowboy and Whitechapel made me feel like maybe some of the newer bands could actually cut it for the long haul in a post NWOAHM time when bands were all pretty short lived as record sales slumped and people adjusted to new models. So to see a few non metalcore bands go harder in the death influences and really keep cranking out material was dope.

Anyway, Pathology are bursting to arrive back with their new self titled record, by all accounts. Check out a full report and choke down a NEW slice of the gurgly vocal, slam worthy gorge metal you love HERE. I wonder what would happen if Takeru Kobayashi had just eaten a gazillion hot dogs and Abbath or Dagon croaked in one ear while the Pathology dude Matti Way satan burped in the other. Would Kobayashi’s iron stomach be psyched out into puking through the subliminal sweet nothings and  power of suggestion of so much croakage and gore? I know this is fucked up to say but I am kinda more stoked for this Pathology than the new Suffocation, no dis to those dudes. Just how it is.

Swedish death mavens Entrails slime forth again to make most other bands look corny as heck. New album World Inferno (Pre Order and hear the new song HERE) will follow the mondo crushing Obliteration record. I like how the cover sort of calls to mind Raging Death as if the swampy skeleton and homies have finally conquered the entire world with metal. Sadly, Jack Terricloth from the amazing The World Inferno Friendship Society does not do spoken word cameos between album tracks, I am guessing. Regardless, Entrails are fucking amazing and just what the death doctor ordered to shake off those scene deathcore blues and get you feeling more like, uh…Wolverine Blues again, amirite?

Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments: “I am damn proud to finally unleash this nasty beast, a new chapter is written for Entrails to satisfy all old school maniacs out there. Having new blood in the band, Martin and Tommy, helped making this fifth album the rawest and heaviest to date. Prepare yourself to stretch out your neck in full headbanging!”

The recordings for World Inferno started in December 2016 in Lundqvist’s Bloodshed Studio. Dan Swano once again handled the mixing and mastering for the album. Dan Swano comments: “I don’t know if I had said this before, but I say it again. Every time I start thinking about putting together some new SweDeath project, Entrails show up at my doorstep with a new album to mix, and every time I think ‘Fuck!! – What’s the point in making my own project when this is so fucking good, and exactly what I wanted to do…’ And if I felt there were some details to improve upon from our previous work together, they fix that and then some, and return with an album even stronger than the previous one.

Decapitated release “Never” from next album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, April 28, 2017 at 11:41 AM (PST)

Decapitated remain one of the most important bands in extreme metal, a death metal consortium of the truest order. New song “Never” has an intro that gives me some of the more moody Carnival Is Forever vibes before a more old school attack begins. The new album is called Anticult and I for one am sure as hell excited. That solo section and the three minute or so almost hardcore breakdown riff are the fucking bomb. God, I love this band.

Kalopsia sign to HPGD Productions, “Angelplague” imminent

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 2:31 PM (PST)

New Jersey death metal band Kalopsia have clear old school influences but clobber hard enough to kick new school “brootal” fans right in the hoo-ha. Damn, there are some seriously heavy moments that have, like, Chaos A.D. level neck whiplash and fist pumping groove intensity in their track “Destined To Return”.

The band are poised to reach more ears as they have just signed to Horror Pain Gore Death, a terrific choice for the label and group that is sure to thrill metal fans. Pre-order their forthcoming record Angelplague HERE. If you are into anything from new super heavy stuff like Enterprise Earth balanced against the more traditional death metal of Jungle Rot or, say, Sodom’s dark but insistent and not overly cluttered yet still adept writing, you will prob be super stoked on this.

Today Rolling Stone published a ridiculous 40 Greatest Stoner Albums Ever list. They should have called it “How to not get laid ever, except for The Chronic and one or two others on here.” They had some cool reggae picks but had fucking Beach House (no offense to them) but not Sleep or Cypress Hill? Like, wtf?!!! The list was pure dirt weed for the most part.

You don’t listen to Kraftwerk stoned. I love Kraftwerk but if you did that too blazed it would be like being stuck in an Atari game and not in a fun way. And Darkside Of The Moon is a way better LSD album. And RS, much as I love them, will never help put me in the rock n roll Hall of Fame I am betting (even though I fucking rule), so I am gonna call them out on putting Jimi Hendrix at number one on pretty much every list they ever publish. I LOVE Jimi. The first time I smoked I listened to Jimi w my pal Quil (RIP) and got so high I thought I was a mouse and then prayed to all the hot girls in Jnr. High because I thought I was dying and was sad I would never see their breasts as I was still a virgin (I think?) and then Quil threw water on me and made me play Sega Genesis to maintain my shit. But c’mon…you guys put Jimi number one for everything. You had a 40 greatest guitar players list without Dr Know from Bad Brains on it and no ROIR tape on this pothead list when EVERY SKATER PUNK in the world has blazed and skated to Bad Brains!

Anyway, I fixed the list. Now, I am not gonna say this is “The Greatest EVER” because to each their own high, but I could have had every Kottonmouth Kings release on here and it would be more accurate. Shit, there is an Instagram video of my friend Darla singing “High On The Beach” by Lana that is better than most of the RS choices.

Anyway, here are my top 40 picks that I came up with in a half hour and are better. I did not put Afroman “Because I Got High” on it, but there is a lot of metal. Shit, as my dear friend Laurie Safdie said ,”They should have put the entire Man’s Ruin back releases on it.”

More BELOW and Happy four two oh, yo.

Suffocation reveal “Your Last Breaths”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, April 14, 2017 at 11:39 AM (PST)

Death metal legends Suffocation have released a new song entitled “Your Last Breaths”. Not “Breath”? I guess that “Last Breath” is already a stone cold on the slab Hatebreed classic.  And I suppose if you are dying in the murder induced puddle that precedes most death metal songs you would be grateful for every final gasp, so maybe plural is the way to go? Except that if it really hurt you would want it to be over with and be a singular final breath. Hmmm…

Anyway, the song is probably going to be huge in a live setting but the drum sound here doesn’t do justice to the rest of the arrangement. The guitar solo sections, heavier slam parts and technical flourishes as well as the signature low growls and attacking guitar tones are on point though. All in all it still certainly is a solid cup of DM for the day and gives an idea of some of what to expect from …Of The Dark Light. I mean, you know it was gonna be Suffocation but the cover art sort of looks like Fallujah got more evil or somesuch.

Demonical announce new vocalist Alexander Högbom

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 2:00 PM (PST)

Swedish death metal band Demonical  have announced a change of vocalists.

DEMONICAL commented:

“We have parted with vocalist Sverker Widgren due to various time- and priority related matters. As there are always two sides to every story and answers might differ depending on who you ask, we prefer to keep the more detailed reasons amongst the ones involved and not publically go into further explanations. However, in order to avoid any speculations we can inform you that there is no bad blood between any of us, we want to thank Sverker for all the years in the band and we wish him the very best of luck for the future.

As the band has always operated under the motto “only the best is good enough”, we are thrilled to announce that one of Sweden’s premium death metal vocalists, Alexander Högbom (known from acts such as October Tide and Centinex) has joined us as our new permanent commander.

In order to raise the flames even higher, we can hereby also reveal that after more than two years in Demonical on a session basis, guitarist Eki Kumpulainen and drummer Kennet Englund have both become full-time members of the band.

With this determined and solid line-up we are very much looking forward to the upcoming Finnish shows next week, the summer tour across Eastern Europe during July as well as the album recording in the autumn.

Yes that’s right, during the fall we will (finally) record our fifth full-length album for an early 2018 release. We have tapped an award-winning Swedish producer for the task and we are confident that the album – which summons bits and pieces from all our previous releases – will become an improved quality-related chapter for Demonical and push our Swedish Death Metal Darkness to a new level.

The future looks more than victorious!”.     

Alexander Högbom added:

“It is with excitement and great honor I will shoulder Sverker Widgren’s position in Demonical. I have known the band for almost 10 years now and we have toured together all over the globe with my other bands both as support and vice versa. This is one more step for me into the chasm of Swedish Death Metal Darkness”.

Crusty Death/Doom outfit VALLENFYRE , one of the most killer bands in heavy music will release its third album, Fear Those Who Fear Him, via Century Media Records on June 2nd, 2017.

Now, the band proudly presents the first single and video clip for this opus. Greg Mackintosh (vocals and guitar) comments: “’Kill All Your Masters’ is about the frustration and anger we feel towards the many people and regimes in positions of power, whether it be political, religious or corporate, inflicting crimes and injustices on an often docile and enslaved population, who in many ways seem happy to be told what to do by anything from ancient books to lifestyle magazines.”

If you are on extra edge from how fucking dumb the world has been of late, this is some much needed riff/hate therapy.
