Morning unearthed skull lickers. I am up early cuz my cat stepped on my face and , well, since my phone broke and I can’t scroll absentmindedly in bed I decided to do the next best thing and write absentmindedly on my laptop. I want to make you aware of a video and a lyric video from two brilliant acts you may already know and love or who might be about to rip you a new one for the first time.

Featuring ex members of Ovid’s Withering and current members of Monotheist, 7 Horns 7 Eyes, and Regurgitated Pus, Nekroí Theoí have been causing a stir. Outspoken death metal with incongruous chords and emotional complexity? Sign us up . Order Dead Gods right HERE. The band have a crushingly heavy new video about the link between the cops and racist groups. Yes, Virginia…it is a problem. Check it out below and get pissed.

Swedish crust punk/metal outfit MARTYRDÖD has issued a lyric video for “Pharmacepticon” as their seventh album, Hexhammaren, nears North America through Southern Lord. This almost feels more like a real video than a lyric vid though because it is kinda vibey and lonely. Preorders for the album are HERE.

I am always in total awe of this band’s uncanny ability to sneak the saddest melodic threads through their quite heavy riffing. It just makes it have so much more of a grab for the soul even while the rage is also smothering. One of the sickest bands in the scene record after record. “Pharmacepticon” has a more mid tempo stride and absolutely colossal guitars. This band has never let me down yet.

The band’s crushing seventh album, as with prior MARTYRDÖD works, was recorded by Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman (Wolfbrigade, At The Gates, Agrimonia) in Gothenburg, Sweden. MARTYRDÖD states of Hexhammaren, “The album came out really strong. We tried to just let loose and not get distracted with details. The recording was straight up raw and sincere with fast takes and improvised solos.”

Viking melodic death metal kings Amon Amarth have released their latest opus to battle and immortal raging, the well titled Berserker. I remember in high school in my D&D group everyone was obsessed with the Berserker warrior class character and people would always fight over who got to be that class of rampaging slaughter on two legs. Berserker is the band’s 11th album in a storied career and finds them reliable as ever to their brand.

Berserker was recorded in Los Angeles with renowned studio guru Jay Ruston (Anthrax/Stone Sour). After recording several rounds of professional demos for the new songs — initially with fellow Swedish metal icon Peter Tägtgren and then later with Ruston himself — the band crossed the Atlantic to make final the recordings in LA, eager to take a fresh approach to the album-making process.

Pre Order the new False record ‘Portent’ now.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 5:56 PM (PST)

False realized mid photo it was the wrong time of year to find fiddlehead ferns, alas.

Sipping on some very hot matcha and listening to Living Tomb by Ossuarium and living for it right now, the steaming semi-bitter beverage pairing wonderfully with the tripping off of mutant mold deadly metal of the music. Unlike many metal fans, I actually got my laundry done today and am feeling victorious. There is a Gridfailure, Zud, Parkbench Messiah show in Kingston, NY that I booked tomorrow and I will have friends coming through but I work a lot so it feels good that I actually got my house cleaned up and made my belongings presentable for humans after a few weeks of being totally burnt out and looking like Steve Martin in The Jerk. Speaking of appearances, I noticed today along with some others that William Barr really does look like Baby Sinclair from Dinosaurs. Uncanny and disturbing. Guess I will go watch dead bugs crawl out of haunted kittens on Haunting Of Hill House now to feel arguably less freaked out.

On the realness though, I need to steer you all today towards the sure to be excellent new False record Portent from Gilead Media. The black metallers new song “A Victual Unto Our Dead Selves” awaits you over at Revolver HERE. I am super digging the inspiring gallop of the long intro build up before Rachel’s raspy snarls arrive. Killer grandiose keyboard flourish on this track as well for fans of Emperor type stuff who don’t want to support Faust related records anymore. Not sure how the band didn’t manage to be exhausted by the halfway mark of this lengthy rager (and five minutes in is when things get really crazy and even bigger in scope). Listeners however, will not be fatigued but rather invigorated and transported.

About the track, guitarist Jimmy C comments, “Throughout the years False have watched one another not only sacrifice and suffer, but grow and become more full versions of themselves. Throughout it all, we had one another to count on for guidance, empathy, and support. This song is a manifestation of that continued growth and self-actualization with and through one another. It is our full beings, and a celebration of all that shaped us and what we cast off to become a more intrinsic whole“. Lead vocalist and lyricist, Rachel adds, “We have a longstanding history with one another that includes much strife as it does triumph. Together, we have grown into resilient beings. Our strength lies in the suffering we have been through together – any challenges faces are more surmountable and any triumphs are by comparison even sweeter”.

“Portent” is available for pre-order now via Gilead Media on LP/CD/digital.

Holy smokes, this is just what I needed to get out of the doldrums today. One of the most intense and brightest lights of the underground are back. Immortal Bird have released some initial music from their anticipated Thrive On Neglect sophomore release (and 20 Buck Spin debut) and it gets like twenty extra gold star stickers for gnarly pit-worthiness. While the band’s earlier stuff is excellent, this feels like growth in many ways. The mean but more crisp production, even harsher vocals and a tightening of musical devastation all around feels like a huge win. I love it when a band I already liked and was rooting for goes ahead and hits a fucking giant grand slam. Feast your ears on ‘Anger Breeds Contempt’ below. \m/

Castle are so used to melting faces they even melt their own sometimes

Hey everyone. Hope your Monday is going groovy. I’ve had a relatively rad day, though I am truly bummed over the news of one of my all time favorite bands Royal Trux pulling the plug on their upcoming tour. Glad they still made the White Stuff record, cuz that shit ruled and was an unexpected blessing, even if they don’t play anymore or whatever is going on. Things happen. It’s all love, though. Big influences on me, for sure.

Anyway, I did get to see  my favorite underground metal band Castle finally play a full set a week or so back. Castle pound for pound deliver the leanest and meanest best sick riff value paired with killer vocals, power trio might and road dog radness you can get for your money’s worth release after release. The coolest. They tour all the time but I never got a chance for various workaholic reasons to see them in full. I opened for them the last time they came to my city with my Walking Bombs project but they had PA problem in the venue so it took the band years to want to come back. I am happy as a sun loving salamander (wait, they love sun – right?) they did, though. The band absolutely cooked the eyeballs off the place in support of their recent Deal Thy Fate monsterpiece and local support Witch Kiss and Shadow Witch (with Doug Beans of Murphy’s Law fame killing it on the kit for Shadow Witch) slew as well.

It was a great night with awesome people who live and breathe the rock n roll experience. Made me damn glad to know all of them and I headbanged my little brain right out my ear holes. Not bad for a middle of the week mind bruiser! Cheers to everyone! Good times.

Purple Hazeo)))

So, a shit ton of amazing new stuff hit the streets today. First I wanna shamelessly plug my new Walking Bombs collab with Gridfailure called Suicide By Citizenship on Nefarious Industries. A ton of amazing well known guests on this one from Tad Doyle to Globelamp to Laura Pleasants to BJ Allen and more who helped us craft this dystopian beast. Feeling blessed I had the outlet to vent some serious sorrow at the negative decline of this country under Trump on this album with some powerful creatives by my side. Lovers, dreamers and me, yo.

A few other things I am loving out today…run as fast as you can and snatch a copy of Life Metal by SUNN O))). The legends have outdone themselves again and remain one of the most important, mind opening bands on the planet. ‘Between Sleipnir’s Breaths’ is quite possibly their most epic number in ten years or so and includes excellent neighs as well. It’s devastatingly good to an intimidating degree. Love those dudes so much. Such an important band and capable of always growing. Also Tim from fucking Silkworm is on board this and Steve Albini was involved. Woof! That’s like the Avengers End Game of musical awesome. I am imagining Albini dressed as Captain America now though and can’t unsee it. Why am I so dumb?

In all seriousness though, these folks are true masters of their craft.

Songstress galore and extreme talent Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky from Cave In not only made one of the greatest Guns N Roses covers I have ever heard on their Droneflower collab , the second record out today that will be hard pressed to NOT be on my year end list, but they also manage to share a really beautiful creative chemistry that finds both of them seeming to relax enough to capture the real emotional scope of what these songs wanted to be. This is a high water mark for two artists who already are extremely accomplished and wonderful. “Buried In Love” is breathtaking.

“Beat Up” by mighty Helms Alee needs to be bludgeoning your ears today before night falls as well at some point. The band’s perhaps cleanest sounding recording, new album Noctiluca nonetheless captures some of their best organic adrenaline filled mastery of give, take and expectation yet.  Thrilling. And those drum sounds. Yes!

Lastly my fave of the bunch is the new Sabbath Assembly, A Letter Of Red. The eclectic occult minded collective continue to gaze through the veil and pull through incredible compositions through forays into the hidden corners of the psyche and spiritual realms. I am in awe of how album after album they manage to never let me down. “A Welcome Below” is my favorite track here, one of the most rewarding songs they have ever tracked. Yes, we all wonder when the demons will let us go but wrestling them amidst this kind of soundtrack is pretty damn comforting.

Well, here is a kick ass surprise. Saint Vitus, the legendary band known more for their doom side, actually once seeded the hardcore scene with their unruly ways. “Useless” the iconic band’s latest track, sounds like it could be from the halcyon days of Black Flag. This song made me pumped! I was not expecting to hear a fast Vitus tune today and with such expert demonstration of an older and frankly to me much more enjoyable style of hardcore and punk than most of what we get nowadays. Check it out below!

The band’s self-titled album (I am getting low key chills typing that thinking of the import) is out May 17th. Man, I am really stoked for this now.

Punk band Rival Town have released a music video! Formed in 2016, Rival Town is a six piece post/pop-punk band from Ontario, Canada. Big emo melodies and crunchy guitars that inspire movement combine with tight song-writing fans of the genre will love.

Sez the band:

“Bridges” is our first single with our new singer, Mike Julian. Mike’s got some amazing pipes and so we wanted to take advantage and experiment with some heavier vocals and screaming while still continuing with the natural musical progression of our sound.

 

CATTLE DECAPITATION will kick off a five-date mini-tour with special guests/grindcore merchants Unidad Trauma next week. The journey will rampage its way through San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Colorado Springs. See all confirmed dates below.

“…the fact that we have these wild parakeets flying around between the palm trees and most normal people don’t even acknowledge them…they are a precious detail that only the wisest of Los Angelinos truly appreciate.” – Actually Huizenga.

Happy Easter weekend, sinners. Or Passover or Pagan Bunny day if that’s what you are doing. Whatever is clever. I’m here to bring you back from the dead in style with a blasphemous article on the most holy musical warrioress of our times, Actually Huizenga. She is a performer, brilliant musician and funny and chill as heck, a multi-faceted director, actress, rager, singer, expert on obscure subjects and also probably will live forever through cult worship ceremonies. She is the force behind Patriarchy (a much better one than “the patriarchy” – you will want to rave about how “Patriarchy” is finally cool).

Yes, cool is a dorky word. But facts are facts. I was scrolling IG one day and saw her Patriarchy page and was like WTF! Some people would maybe think they had stumbled into a Babylonian hellscape but I was like…this is basically utopia!

Now, a little known fact…there is not really a God. Famed-ethnobotanist Terence McKenna was right about the fractal machine elves but something overlooked is that fractal machine elves sometimes tie it on too hard. They also have the big responsibility of determining how much coolness every soul which is born gets pre-birth from their little weird psychic elf factory. One day a particularly handsome elf we will call “Buzz” was kind of asleep on the job and rested his nose too hard on the “coolness lever”. Well, it turns out baby Actually got 30X the concentrated radness usually given to a normal “mortal” and thus is probably going to save or destroy the world. Are we ready for her messages?

All I know is she saved my brain the last few days by offering a much needed alternative to Trump bleating about “No collusion”, a far superior place with chain mail, snakes, decadence and synthy wise-ass glory. I know y’all wanna read about Accursed Spawn and stuff all the time, but sometimes we need to get freakier than that – ok?!

So I wrote to her and the California based artist thankfully agreed to let me interview her. Fuck yeah! She even told me funny stories and humored me while I was telling her about being stuck in a forest and seeing giant hawks that thankfully didn’t eat me alive or this never would have been published. Instead, you have the following conversation to memorize. You should also watch her videos and movies twice as many times as people streamed The Dirt. Jesus says everyone who does gets to go to heaven this weekend for free, no matter what. For real.

In all seriousness though, she is hysterical, beyond talented and really blew my mind when I heard her incredible music. So happy this came together and hope all of you have fun reading it or discovering her world and killer material if you haven’t yet.

From their impending fully collaborative musical experiment, Suicide By Citizenship, New York solo outfits WALKING BOMBS and GRIDFAILURE present a new video for the emotive eco-collapse movement, “Bare Shores Bleed.” The video makes is public debut through a premiere at New Noise Magazine as the album nears release through Nefarious Industries next week.

“Bare Shores Bleed” sees WALKING BOMBS’ Morgan Y. Evans on vocals and bass, GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner on vocals, guitar, electronics, harmonica, effects, and field recordings, album performer and producer Jay Andersen (Surmiser) on drums, and features a cast of guest contributions, including guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Snakes), vocals from Elizabeth Le Fey (Globelamp), and accordion from Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe). The video was directed and filmed by Brenner.

With the “Bare Shores Bleed” premiere, Evans offers, “Dave mainly wrote this one, but I was really stoked Elizabeth and I sang on it together as the environment is important to both of us. She got me taking care of my health again and has been vegetarian for fifteen years. I also love the nature of where we live in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate, New York and hate that the world is threatened by the careless march of humanity. Also shout out to Jay for spending extra time on mixing this one as there was so much going on. It is thrilling to hear Brett’s chaotic guitar swells, which remind me of nature’s wrath.”

Brenner offers, “Our planet is in peril. We see some of the most devastating ecological disasters happening right in front of our eyes, we watch species go extinct daily, we clear millions of acres of woodlands yearly, and each of us throws thousands of pounds of plastic into the planet each year. We have an administration who hires rapists of the EPA to run it, and legions of ‘Flat Earthers’ and ‘coal rollers’ simply defying science and common sense. Political affiliations aside, we all need air and water. Our planet is the highest priority to all of us, and it saddens me when I see so much abuse of it every day.”

See WALKING BOMBS & GRIDFAILURE’s emotional “Bare Shores Bleed” video at New Noise Magazine RIGHT HERE.

Nefarious Industries will release Suicide By Citizenship on eco-wallet CD and all digital platforms next Friday, April 26th. Find preorders at the label webshop HERE and via Bandcamp where several other songs are streaming HERE and HERE.

Suicide By Citizenship is an album created to challenge its own creators with the intent of combining sounds from two outfits located on polar opposite ends of the underground music spectrum. The record blends a wealth of genres into a dystopian alloy of improvised jams, rife with discontent for the contemporary state of American politics, and more specifically, the current administration’s actions and policies.

Suicide By Citizenship was conceived by WALKING BOMBS’ Morgan Y. Evans and GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner who created the album with producer Jay Andersen (Surmiser). In addition to Mike Score, guest contributions from Thomas Andrew Doyle (Tad, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth), Laura Pleasants (Kylesa, The Discussion), Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Snakes), Elizabeth Le Fey (Globelamp), BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot), Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe), and more are featured throughout the album, which was recorded and mastered by Andersen, who also plays on the entire album, with additional recording by Brenner who created the cover art.

On May 10th, Abnormality will release their third full-length, Sociopathic Constructs, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of Sociopathic Constructs, the new single, “A Catastrophic and Catalyzing Event”, can be heard below.

Fans of Cannibal, Aeon, Despised Icon and more will eat up the latest tune from the wildly talented very brutal tech death band, by far one of the most talented acts in the death metal world. I would lose my shit to see them tour with Venom Prison and Rivers Of Nihil, so let’s make that happen – ok, world?!

“I think this record we felt free enough to just go where we wanted to within a song,” states guitarist Jeremy Henry. “We had no qualms with switching styles and approaches from riff to riff. To have a whole section grinding away and then just switch gears, hit the brakes and drop a slow, old school Morbid Angel warship groove in there. We felt free to follow our instincts, and just let our influences shine through.”

Twilight Fauna’s acoustic live EP has arrived

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at 1:47 PM (PST)

Twilight Fauna have released That Old Time Way (Live Acoustic), an intimate new direction for the generally black metal project. Check it out and support HERE. 

A side of this band that no one ever gets to see is me sitting quietly on my porch, playing acoustic versions of my songs. That’s such a huge part of my life and to what I do in this band. Also starting around 2018 I’ve played a few acoustic shows of different material here and there. So I decided to merge those two ideas and do a live acoustic ep. These songs were recorded live on my porch in one take. No editing or studio tricks, and just a bit of mastering, just enough to resolve issues with getting it onto vinyl. It’s all there, the missed notes, the wind in the trees, my dogs bumping into the mic stands. All the things that make life beautiful. This is the closest I can get y’all to being there with me in that moment. I hope you find something worthwhile in it. -Paul R.
