God Dethroned release sinister new “Spirit of Beelzebub” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 11:23 AM (PST)

Dark practitioners of evil God Dethroned have released a tremendously strong new video for “Spirt Of Beelzebub” from Feb. 7th pending Metal Blade release Illuminati. If the rest of the record is as sick as this track we are in for one fucking ripper of an album. It is actually the second single, I guess. I have yet to hear the first one, but this video is second part of three interconnected short movies. I have to say I was pretty immersed regardless and it can also stand alone. Anthemic tune with many memorable frighteningly fast and ominous mid tempo demonic parts plus the chanted vocals sections will really haunt the mind afterwards. As for the gutturals, Henri Sattler sounds quite fittingly possessed.

I have a feeling this is going to be a really important release for 2020.

God Dethroned comments: “‘Spirit of Beelzebub’ is the second single and video from the ‘Illuminati’ album. This song will appeal to our fans who like the faster and more aggressive tunes of God Dethroned. The video is actually the prequel to ‘Illuminati’ and definitely worth checking out!”

Illuminati release shows
w/ Dawn Of Disease & Aesmah
Feb. 7 – Lingen (Germany) – Alter Schlachthof
Feb. 8 – Hoogeveen (The Netherlands) – Het Podium + Sisters Of Suffocation
Feb. 9 – Rotterdam (The Netherlands) – Baroeg

RIP Elijah Nelson of Black Breath

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, December 30, 2019 at 12:36 PM (PST)

Very sad to learn of the sudden passing of Elijah Nelson of death metal band Black Breath. Was lucky enough to catch them live once and have them fully melt my face and the Elijah was a huge part of that and will be greatly missed by fans and loved ones. The group certainly are deserving of their cult following and regardless of all that it is always tragic when this sort of thing happens. Sending love out to everyone. Blasting some “Children of The Horn” right now.

Pleased to report that there is still more metal and hardcore content to throw your way as we head towards the end of this insane decade. Our new contributing photographer Petra Dollet shot legends Obituary, the hungry False Prophet, respected ragers Extinction AD and the wild High Command for us at the quite recent Palladium Upstairs night of the run and here is a gallery of hate splattered visual impressions for you die-hards RIGHT HERE. Looks like it was an awesome night of heavy antics!

If you are tired of the parade of extremely ugly Republicans on tv and want some cool death metal distraction , we have killer news from L.A. tech death metallic monsters Abysmal Dawn today! Abysmal Dawn remain one of the most intense bands out there and will be embarking on a North American tour as direct support for VADER in February of next year! Their star will surely continue to grow and consume all!

The run will kick off on February 4 in San Diego, CA and will conclude on February 28 in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles. The full run of dates can be found below. For updates on ticket links and on-sale times, follow ABYSMAL DAWN on BandsInTown HERE.

In addition to the tour announcement, ABYSMAL DAWN has even bigger news in store for 2020! The band has just completed work on their long-awaited fifth studio album, which will be their debut to Season of Mist. The forthcoming full-length was mixed by Charles Elliott and produced and recorded by Charles Elliot and Mike Bear at Tastemaker Audio while the drums were tracked by John Haddad at Trench Studios. The offering was mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. I for one am incredibly pumped at this news and was hoping the band would land a new, solid contract somewhere soon!

Speaking about the upcoming offering, ABYSMAL DAWN comments:
“We’re officially done with album number 5! It’s been quite some time since we released any new music, and we feel we have something special on our hands. It took a lot of time, effort, and seeing through some trying times to get to this moment. We’re very proud of the outcome and think fans will agree it was worth the wait. Musically we’re pushing our limits more than ever, while still maintaining what people love about Abysmal Dawn. Now we take a quick breath before getting back once again to spreading our brand of misanthropic extreme metal across the globe. See you on the road in 2020!”

Metal Riot’s Top 15 albums of 2019.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 5:10 AM (PST)

Immortal Bird deserve to thrive

 

Hi everyone. As usual, I am inclined to post my AOTY list a little on the early side to hopefully get capitalist metal scum to buy more of these masterpieces in advance of the holiday season. I also am very busy doing important shit like going through a hellish move to get away from a slumlord, petitioning Marvel to reinstate Julian MacMahon as Dr. Doom in the MCU , etc. I have also been busy being furious that the entire Metal Riot Twitter account was deleted by vengeful Melanie Martinez and Foxygen stans just because I said that my gf Globelamp and I are not part of a god damn murder plot against stupid Foxygen and that anyone who thinks that is an idiot (FYI: their official twitter tweeted and deleted awhile ago “she tried to kill me and isn’t done”…complete evil nonsense). She has dental records that her teeth were knocked out, geniuses. It wasn’t from no one. The Melanie stans also hated that my gf stood up for the woman who accused Melanie of assault. Everything is wack. Not a good look to support Foxygen, to put it nicely.

Sorry I dropped some F bombs, Twitter! I notice you still have Richard Spencer on there with a god damn turkey emoji dogwhistling Native American genocide, you trash! Sorry I stood up for my abused girlfriend and want some losers to leave us alone. I do apologize to anyone inconvenienced and will continue to do my best to support lots of bands, though I am disgusted by the Twitter platform so not sure I will be replacing the account.

Anyway, it has been an intense year so I sure as hell hope these impeachment hearings gain some traction. Quick shameless plug. I was honored to release two albums this year with my Walking Bombs project via Nefarious Industries, the war, hate and capitalism themed Suicide By Citizenship and the non binary themed Sphinges Sibling Selves and Queens.

I am still in awe of the assembled allies who took part in these albums, from Gridfailure to members of Tad, Caustic Resin/Earth, Cycle Sluts From Hell, Kylesa, All Out War, Globelamp , The Beautiful Bastards and more. I will remain very thankful for years to come for these releases, which helped me express myself during a very hard personal year where my gf and I were battling Foxygen legally and dealing with DARVO. Thank you EVERYONE who checked my records out this year or did a premiere. More to come in 2020!

The following are some of the musical powerful albums by others that really resonated with me the most this year.  Well, I mean they are the ones cloests to the hard rock, metal and punk genres. I also listened to lots of Tamaryn, Kerli and Jenny Lewis, as should you all. Bless you cool cats and let’s all keep the faith, I value you all and thank you for continuing to support the site. In the next few weeks before the end of the year we will also post short lists from other staff and guest artist favorite list contributors to continue our year end celebration. Stay loud and proud! Love, fangs and headbangs, y’all. Today is trans day of remembrance as I write this and let’s make the world brighter.

Read the Year End List BELOW.

Hey gang. Feeling the cooling positivity of that day after blue wave feeling and sipping some black coffee. Finally checking out this Cro-Mags (Harley version) promo from the remnants of Victory and I have to say that I don’t really understand why anyone says it sucks. “From The Grave” with Phil from Motorhead is a ripping rad rager and the vocals do sound ferocious if not my favorite voice for the band. I am way more of a fan of the John and Mackie version and wish they could somehow just dead this shit in the name of PMA and form the tightest , ugly heavy and illest combo going but after the violence and all the hate I understand why it is two distinct camps. It is sad, but I am gonna try and keep an open heart and love both.

Been going through a lot of crazy shit the last month with a very crummy landlord situation and family stuff as well as the year winding down so haven’t had the gusto to do too much self-insertion into any posts, but I wanted to thank you all who continue to support the site and also in the scene and general world who believe in ourselves and one another. We can heal a lot and restore balance to the force or justice or progress as a scene or wider society if we can process our pains and biases and try to move things in a productive and healing direction while still having respect for oneself and boundaries. I have to believe for all the good and bad days we all have that a lot of us underneath it all are better people than not or at least want to be. Sending you all love and horns tonight. Don’t mind me, I finally finished reading The Elfstones of Shannara and the sacrifice of Amberle to bond  with the land as the next tree protector to shelter and cradle life through synergy has affected me and made me think about interconnectedness.

Anyway, on to some evil ass gnarly metal news- hahaha!

It has been a big Season Of Mist week around here so let’s not stop now! Defiled from Japan have a new album announced. This death metal group rip so fucking hard, it is truly a spectacle of unhinged wonder. The band will release their new studio album, Infinite Regress on January 24, 2020. The album art and track-list can be found below. Additionally, the band have revealed “Tragedy,” the first single from the effort. “Tragedy” can be heard below.

DEFILED comment: “The day has finally come! We are so incredibly proud to announce our new record, ‘Infinite Regress.’ The album will be out on 24th Jan 2020 via our home of Season of Mist. Please give a listen to our first official premiere song ‘Tragedy’ and we hope you guys enjoy it. Cheers!”

I don’t know about you but I think “Tragedy” fucking rules and love the brainy intro that devolves into fierce speed and then interesting slower deathy kinda tribal thud before back to a full fledged powerful attack. And some chunky ass lead parts amidst the growling chaos! This band is so cool and I really like their arrangements and clear dedication to not giving a shit about trends.

‘Infinite Regress’ can be pre-ordered in various formats HERE.

Archspire members appear in new Jason Momoa show ‘See’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, November 4, 2019 at 8:34 AM (PST)

Here is some cool and somewhat different news for your Monday (other than that Richard Spencer is a POS nazi and wbk). Apple TV’s new series “See,” starring Jason Momoa (‘Aquaman,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ etc.), features a special appearance from ARCHSPIRE vocalist Oli Peters and drummer Spencer Prewett on the pilot episode! Peters showcases his signature gunfire vocals in a scene in which Momoa hand-selected the band to appear. The episode ‘Godflame’ can be seen at THIS LOCATION.

Very glad to see more good stuff happen for one of the coolest bands in metal!

About “See:”
