Phoenix, Az based critically acclaimed death metal group LAGO have premiered a Matti Way (From the North Films) directed music video for their song “Soiled Is The Crown” today via Metalsucks. The track, which saw Metalsucks commenting “If you like your DM with guts churned, ear drums rattled and knees shaken, this is the stuff for you!”, comes from their highly anticipated Unique Leader debut Sea of Duress which will see a June 8th release date and sees the band further refining their blackened, menacing brand of old school influenced death metal.

LAGO commented on the video, “This was our first experience making a video, so we were VERY apprehensive about the idea.  We tend to have a mentality of “less is more” in terms of our artistic direction, so the fear of doing something over the top and ridiculous was definitely there. This video is honestly the brain child of Matti Way.  We had a really simple idea and he really took it and ran. We were thrilled with how it turned out. The textures, the graininess, the cuts and especially the lighting turned out incredible! This video really encompasses the tone of the whole album in our opinion.” Matti Way added, “So what I wanted to do with the video was really bring out Lago’s eerie and ominous musical vibes that are interwoven throughout Sea of Duress…”

Nocturnal Graves stream “Silence The Martyrs”

Posted by Metal Riot on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 1:35 PM (PST)

Titan from Nocturnal Graves is sure to be a powerful and unique work (despite having the same name as a recent pretty unfuckwithable Septicflesh record). It’s cool, there was more than one titan trying to conquer humanity in ancient myth.

The satanic death metal ragers have delivered a fearsome onslaught on “Silence The Martyrs”. I am into the rollercoaster heavy speed attack but am especially into the 1:48 mark where things get more atmospheric yet even more bleakly heavy for a minute. The band sound tight as heck on this record thus far.

Titan will be released May 18th across CD and LP formats including a deluxe LP with silkscreen print at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

RIP to Killjoy from Necrophagia

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, March 19, 2018 at 7:35 PM (PST)

Killjoy from death metallers Necrophagia has passed. Andrew Edmunds at Last Rites wrote a nice tribute HERE.

Frank “Killjoy” Pucci was a little shy of fifty years old.

Necrophagia were one of the most old school death metal bands of note. In recent years they release WhiteWorm Cathedral and toured with Venom Inc., among other events of note. Anyone who has heard “Reborn through Black Mass” knows they went out with a powerful , crushing and very dark release.

The band formed in 1993 and was the main project for Killjoy, a benchmark act in the underground who used scary themes to concoct their dark death metal potions.

“Ancient Slumber” remains so fucking insane.

RIP.

Wormed drummer G-Calero passes away at age of 27

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 2:16 PM (PST)

Sad news today as we learn that Wormed‘s technical percussive marvel G-Calero, real name Guillermo Calero, has passed away at the age of just 27. Truly sad and Calero was so talented. Our condolences to the band, friends and family of the departed.

Wormed are by far one of the more interesting technical extreme death bands. We highly recommend you check out their recent Krighsu effort. It is more than worth your time and money.

You just can’t mess with the apocalyptic blood soaked precise deathly potency of any given Skinless release. The savagery unfolds for sure on the title track for the new effort from the long running underground titans. Check it out below and be sure to pre order the new monster fucker of an album. It drops via Relapse in May! Major grooves and deadly heaviness. Loving the sluggish and full bass sound and the low ass riffs. Reminds me of some major Obituary meets Morbid vibes, with the scales tipped towards the Obituary side. This new song totally slaughters.

Gruesome complete new record, Summer European tour announced

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 2:53 PM (PST)

Cool death metal news today as Gruesome have completed the follow up to Savage Land. Yes, the other releases from them were EPs. Their latest studio offering, titled Twisted Prayers, was recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida. Twisted Prayers follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. The record once again features artwork from the legendary Ed Repka (Death, Megadeth, Venom) and is expected to be released this summer via Relapse Records. Stay tuned for more info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Love this project, just a big fat Death appreciation party in good fun. You know each time Gruesome return that it will be a very metal time. The band also have a slew of Euro tour dates you can check out BELOW.

Starkill cover The Foo Fighters

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 2:25 PM (PST)

Taking a break from reflecting on how “New Inside” by Tiffany was slept on to get you all clued in to some new music from Chicago 5 piece Starkill. Well, it is actually not their own new music, rather a Foo Fighters cover. “The Pretender” as symphonic metal? Could it work? Should it work? Decide for yourself below!

Parker and Sarah have a cool trade off on this and make it their own. Parker actually sounds a lot like Dave in some spots. The chorus is not as gritty but overall the approach is kind of a blast. I am into it.

“The Pretender” was def one of the songs that showed the Foos could still have some bark when it came out. Kinda cool to hear a radically different band take a crack at it. Such is the power of music that it can bridge genres, right?

When asked about the inspiration behind covering “The Pretender” track Parker Jameson shares,“Foo Fighters have long been one of our favorite groups of all time, and we’ve long considered doing a cover or interpretation of one of their tracks. “The Pretender” is one of those instantly recognizable rock anthems, and we decided to bring together various aspects from both the original and other versions we had heard to form a cohesive, more metal-centric cover. We’ve always been a band to straddle, combine, and question subgenre stereotypes and what is or isn’t “allowed” in metal, so we thought the idea of combining rock, shred, orchestration, and crazy drums made perfect sense for us. To me, the song is about standing your ground and staying true to who you are. We got this idea together of mimicking the original Pretender video, but replacing the riot police with metalheads of all sorts, showcasing that no matter what your preferred subgenre is, music brings people together.”

Rivers Of Nihil are justly being praised for their steady growth and driven, rage infused masterful modern death. Three albums in and if the new material we have heard so far is any indicator the band are well on the way to securing their legacy and never being forgotten as an important death metal act of note, but it sounds like they also have a LOT of surprises in store for us as well. The newest record is said to draw from a LOT more influences than the band previously has.

Today RoN made a huge announcement about their 3rd LP that has fans drooling:

On March 16th, we will release our third full-length, “Where Owls Know My Name”, via Metal Blade Records. “Whereas The Conscious Seed of Light” (2013) and “Monarchy” (2015) were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, “Where Owls Know My Name” represents the fall.

Check out the album’s second track, “The Silent Life.”. Pre-order bundles are available at: http://metalblade.com/riversofnihil/

Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going." Adds bassist/vocalist Adam Biggs:"This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of 'Monarchy', where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But 'Where Owls Know My Name' is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life.""Where Owls Know My Name" track-listing1. Cancer / Moonspeak2.
