Chicago metallers Snow Burial earlier this month released a music video for their song “Sever the Bloodline” over at Decibel.

“Sever the Bloodline” comes off of Snow Burial’s upcoming album Ostrava due out on September 20 via Prosthetic Records.

About the video, SNOW BURIAL frontman, Ben Bowman comments, “This video was conceived, directed and edited by Derek Cox of Polymyth Studios. He’s been a long time colleague of Nick [Delehanty]’s and was inspired by the song’s dark imagery. The song itself is born from the despair bred by the wild inequality and greed we see daily and invokes some rather violent themes to make a point. We’re hardly ever literal, but the extremity of the sound and words have intent.”

Head over to Decibel to stream “Sever the Bloodline.” You can also check out the album art and track list for Ostrava here.

Toxic Holocaust prepare to release ‘Primal Future: 2019’ this fall

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 4:22 PM (PST)

Portland, Oregon crossover legends Toxic Holocaust are preparing to release their latest full-length Primal Future: 2019 via Entertainment One on October 4.

Joel Grind had this to say about the new album:

“When I started the band in 1999, I never imagined I’d still be doing it in 2019. It’s been a long time coming but the new album is finally ready and it’s sort of a culmination of my past twenty years of doing this band. Most notably, I decided to go back to my roots and record this entire album by myself and play all of the instruments like I did in the early days. It was a lot of fun and nostalgic and at the same time exciting to be able to apply everything I’ve learned over the years. ‘Chemical Warlords’ opens the album and sets the tone for the rest of the record. My vision for this album was sort of a cyberpunk dystopian future. Enjoy!”
Primal Future: 2019 was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grind with artwork by Steve Crisp.
Toxic Holocaust will join Gwar’s massive North American Use Your Collusion Tour next month. The journey begins September 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan and runs through November 5th in Indianapolis, Indiana. Additional support will be provided by Sacred Reich and Against The Grain.

Greetings, y’all. Wanted to get this Fourth of July week of hellish fireworks and bloated nationalistic selectivism off to a better bang with some activism against this hateful Trump regime. I am just back from an ICE/Concentration Camp protest outside Democrat Antonio Delgado’s office in Kingston, NY where many gathered to protest Dems caving on giving funding to Trump’s manufactured border crisis. There was a diverse and passionate crowd including one Jewish man who spoke in horror of having any kind of horrible camps still on this planet. I interviewed a Jamaican immigrant who was a landlady now and she described the racism she had to overcome and a lot of positive energy was put out into my community in the face of this horror show today. I am thankful to have a month and a half sober again, to be back doing activism more and encouraged by my community and support to be back on low dose estrogen , living my truths and experience other amazing people around me who care about trying to heal the world.

There is a lot of negativity in the metal and rock scene and entertainment in general. Ronnie Radke the walking Wikipedia landmine this week was making very transphobic sounding tweets then trying to backpedal through retweets that clunkily seem like he is trying in bad faith to “learn” while simultaneously disavowing the gender spectrum. I tweeted to Brett from Epitaph that maybe it was time to drop their worst signing ever Falling In Reverse but I am sad to say that the dude from Bad friggin’ Religion, one of my all time favorite bands, was too busy retweeting Ricky Gervais both sides schticking about “leftist extremists” being “bad as well” and thus helping do “Antifa is bad” propaganda layup assistance to Andy Ngo grifter fash supporting false equivalency types. Ughh. Jasta also tweeted in support of Louis CK this week and Corey Taylor liked it, which got crickets. Oh, and fucking Varg has a twitter where he is pretending to be god damned…I can’t…Gandalf The (cough) White. FML. And I thought it was a bad time to be a Swiftie this week!

THANK FUCKING NO GOD then that the excellent souls of Black Flags Over Brooklyn and Bandcamp have put out a sick as fuck hardcore, metal and weirdo RIFFS FOR REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE comp to help inspire morale and fight tyranny as well as fight back for abortion rights for people who can get abortions (which includes trans men, by the way). The comp features some of my favorite acts including my friends in Fucked and Bound (covering Sonic Youth, ahhh!!) , Cliterati, my fave Hether Fortune, Redbait and many more. Emma Ruth Rundle, Terminal fucking Nation, Ithaca, Jucifer, False, Woe, Vile Creature, Twilight Fauna, Immortal Bird, Svalbard, Twin Temple, Racetraitor, mighty Underdark…the list of radness goes on and on. HELP SUPPORT and raise funds for abortion rights! Let’s do this!

This comp is a tremendous example of good and positive energy and momentum in the scene and I hope it keeps growing so everything can get better and we can all treat one another with respect for the sake of the future. Pick this up today and spread the word far and wide!

Torche release “Admission” via Billboard

Miami rockers Torche released their newest track “Admission” earlier this week via Billboard.

“Admission” is the title track off the new album, due out July 12 via Relapse Records.

Guitarist Jon Nunez had this to say about the new track:

“This is a song where the music and the lyrics are a perfect match,” explains guitar player Jon Nunez in the accompanying Billboard article. “It’s as if they were meant to go together. What I was going through at the time really came through in the song, and the music I gave Steve definitely brought out some rather painful emotions for him [regarding] losing loved ones and the process you go through after. You could even hear a quiver in Steve’s voice, and it was like, ‘Wow, this is something we haven’t done before.’ Steve tends to be really secretive with his lyrics. He needed a little bit of a push, but I think deep down inside he wanted to get this off his chest.”

Torche will be heading out on tour with Baroness, Wear Your Wounds, Whores., and War On Women early next month. Check out those tour dates as well as “Slide” and “Times Missing” here.

Belarus metallers Essence of Datum have released their newest track “Pendulum” via No Clean Singing.

“Pendulum” comes off the band’s forthcoming album Spellcrying Machine due out August 30 via Season of Mist Records.

Regarding the new album, the band comments:

“One of the most attractive buildings in our hometown is Minsk city crematorium! The comprehension of the fact that there’s a very high probability that our physical presence in this world will end up there and the bodies will be committed to flames, puts a veil of peculiar magic on this place. When walking in the halls of crematorium you cannot but notice giant pendulums that stand still symbolizing frozen time. It is the pendulum that gives more emphasis to the present before the inevitable end to come thus leaving us greedily gasping for the moments remaining. The pendulum in ‘Spellcrying Machine’ holds a special place and we’d like to set off a story with this composition. Until then, let the Pendulum swing!”

Italian metallers Ufomammut have released a video of their 20th anniversary live acoustic set from Gaswerk in Winterthur, Switzerland in April. The live video was made by Andreas Weimann. Check out the video over at Cvlt Nation.

Ufomammut is preparing to release a box set called XX in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band. The XX box set will feature nine Ufomammut’s albums. The box sets will include all eight studio albums; Godlike SnakeSnailkingLucifer SongIdolumEve,OroEcate, and 8. Additionally, the box will include a new release, titled XX. This new recording features six revisited tracks – “Satan,” “Plouton,” “Lacrimosa,” “Infearnatural,” “Mars,” and “Destroyer – which were re-recorded during the band’s recent European tour.

XX sees Ufomammut’s Poia performing acoustic guitar and effects, Urlo handling vocals, synth, and effects, and Vita on drums and percussion, with Ciccio and Stefano Tocci handling sound production and recording. The sound was mixed by Stefano Tocci at Ampire Studio and mastered by Luca Piazza at Zen Garden Studio.

Ufomammut offers:

“We thought it could have been great to celebrate our twenty years as a band with something different. We wanted to collect all our music in a single place, but we wanted also to do something that we never did before, so we thought about to play a different version of some songs. The ‘acoustic side’ came out from that and we’re very proud of the result we were able to play in front of our beloved fans during our latest spring tour. It was amazing to share these songs with all the people that are following us since the beginning. This is a present for all of them and also for us, for what we’ve been during these long twenty years.”

The XX box set will see release on September 9 through Ufomammut’s own Supernatural Cat Records.

The Contortionist have released “Early Grave” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 11:11 AM (PST)

Indiana metallers The Contortionist earlier this week released a music video for their newest single “Early Grave.”

“Early Grave” comes off the upcoming EP Our Bones due out August 9 via Entertainment One/Good Fight Music.

The “Early Grave” video was produced and directed by Corey Norman and produced and edited by vocalist Michael Lessard.

Our Bones is a follow up to 2017’s Clairvoyant.

“Once I was finally able to get Robby to record that riff we started piecing together the song in the back of the van, while on tour in Europe,” Lessard recalls of “Early Grave.”

“We try to do something different with everything we create,” explains Lessard. “With our albums, we tend to work with overarching interconnected themes. Our Bones is a departure. It offered an opportunity to dive into some things we haven’t had a chance to explore, and the shorter EP format allowed us to be hyper-focused on each song.”

Our Bones was mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Through The Eyes Of The Dead), who worked on Language and Clairvoyant.

The Contortionist will be heading out on tour next month with Between The Buried and Me and Nick Johnston. Check out the video for “Early Grave” as well as those tour dates here.

Swedish metallers In Mourning are preparing to release their latest album Garden of Storms.

Garden of Storms is due out October 4 via Agonia Records and will be the follow up to 2016’s Afterglow.

The band commented on the new album:

“We made a new album! It’s called The Garden of Storms ans it is the final piece in a trilogy which started with The Weight of Oceans. We’ve headed back.. and forward, at the same time. We’re back recording with Jonas Kjellgren who made the sound of our earlier albums, yet we have a lot of things that are new with this album. The band constellation is new with Sebastian and Jocke, we’ve worked in ways we’ve never done before, new vibes and new songs even if we planted the seeds to some of them a long time ago. In times where things kind of seem to scatter and change a lot around us, this still feels like our most solid, honest and complete album to date.”

In Mourning will be heading out on tour in October in support of the album. Check out those tour dates plus album art here.

This song is about that awakening within. I feel we were able to capture something raw and intense on this song and I’m stoked for everyone to hear it! The new album Atonement is a reflection of perseverance and passion through the trials and suffering of our existence.“
