UK death metallers Venom Prison have shared a new video interview with Eliran Kantor, the creator of their captivating album artwork on both Animus and Samsara.

The video was shot in Germany on Venom Prison’s recent European tour with Fit For An Autopsy; vocalist Larissa Stupar sat down with Eliran to discuss his work.

The band comment:

“We’ve met Eliran on tour and at festival art exhibitions over the past few years and have established a very productive working relationship. This time we decided to invite him to our Berlin show whilst on tour with Fit For An Autopsy to discuss the process of creating the album art for Samsara but also to speak about the importance of visual art within music, the difference to Eliran’s work for Animus and getting to see the original artwork for the first time.”

DBD are back

Death Before Dishonor are premiering their new album, the first in a long ass time, over at Decibel. If you missed this skull clobbering Boston hardcore outfit, you will NOT be let down by Unfinished Business. The intro to “True Defeat” dropped in and I was instantly head nodding like ,”hellz yeah!”

Stream this ferocious fucker RIGHT HERE via Decibel. I thought the production and performances were great.

Sickbay

Upstate, NY’s Sickbay are a band to watch! This super heavy group are on the rise and will impress hardcore and metal fans of many stripes with their savage sound. The band is self releasing an album called Dissonance August 9th and have a new song called ‘Bloodsoaked’ out to wet your knives and feral appetites on. They have a sort of 90’s proto metalcore with death metal influences sound I really dig and super gruff bad ass vocals that are fun to snarl along with. Heavy mosh factor as well and killer riffs and get the job done with brutal hacksaw efficiency drums.

Recording was done by Mike Usifer of Beacon Soundworks, the guitarist for Prime Evil. The cover was drawn by Keavan Rivers of Doc Rivers Tattoo, who incidentally used to be the drummer for Dissolve. Check them out below! RIYL Skinless, Stigmata, Obituary.

Bummed to hear that WRVTH are calling it a day. Solid and visionary band. Destined to be a cult favorite in the underground, I’d wager. The atmospheric, progressive post metal act have released a lyric video for their new song “Eventide.” The track is off of the band’s forthcoming final album No Rising Sun which will see a digital release on August 23rd through Unique Leader Records. One of those bands like My Epic or Cult of Luna who have some instrumental passages that are just so fucking brilliant but some people STILL have managed to sleep on.

WRVTH offered the following, “This album is about hardships and the contingencies that being in a band brings, just as much as it’s about the pure happiness harbored from fighting in order to follow our passion. In the music you’ll hear our excitement and joy, through the sound of blood, tears, and heartache. In the lyrics, you’ll read the fight against our adversities and the anguish from resisting an impending finality in and of itself. One day everything can be fine and the next it’s over. Not everyone and everything gets to see the light of a new day. This album is a representation of what this band meant to us, as well as the battles we underwent to keep this band alive. Even in the sound, you can hear a coming of age. All the way from our humble beginnings as Wrath of Vesuvius to this living breathing family we called a band. We have seen the world together, through hell and bliss, and made such strong friendships along the way. No matter how big or small the stage was, we always played like it was our last. We remain eternally grateful for any allies, opportunities, and accomplishments this band has brought us, and even more grateful that we were able to share it with anyone that wanted to listen.”

Hey there rockers and face eaters. Today I’ve got a handful of varied genre musical items for you (including news on my own next album). I assume everyone and their mother already heard the Slayer Final Tour news, so we are gonna focus on some other stuff for you today. Let’s start out with some engrossingly horrific new blood covered ear slaughter from a legendary death metal act.

 

Texas’ brutal death metal veterans DEVOURMENT are pleased to unleash “Narcissistic Paraphilia” via Metal Injection’s Dank Slams. The track comes by way of the band’s impending new full-length, Obscene Majesty, set for release via Relapse Records next month.

 

Comments DEVOURMENT, “This song focuses on the internal monologue of the archetypal serial killer’s psychology. One that is typified by pathological narcissism and auditory hallucinations. The kind that can compel a seemingly mild-mannered person to pursue a life filled with debased violence, mayhem, fear, and death.”

 

Writes Metal Injection, “…a DEVOURMENT listening experience is akin to being obliterated like a particle in the Large Hadron Collider and then devoured by a supermassive black hole.”

 

Stream “Narcissistic Paraphilia,” via Metal Injection’s Dank Slams, at THIS LOCATION.

Walking Bombs (aka yours truly)

In grungy/metal/industrial/punk weirdness news, my solo/collaborative project Walking Bombs has my second album of 2019 due out in August via Nefarious Industries. Sphinges, Sibling Selves And Queens is available to pre-order today HERE and the opening track “Pisces Rising Shine” is available, a kind of Melvins/STP-outer space stoner grunge jam featuring myself on bass and vocals, Jay Andersen (Surmiser) on drums and Dava She Wolf (Cycle Sluts From Hell, Star & Dagger, She Wolves) on guitars. While a lot of this album in particular deals with being non-binary, this first single is more of an examination of humanity’s push/pull drive between imagination and exploration or destructive tendencies.

Sphinges, Sibling Selves And Queens (Night variant) by Julie Catona

The twelve-song Sphinges, Sibling Selves And Queens was recorded late 2018 through early summer 2019 at Bohemesphere Studios in Saugerties, New York, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jay Andersen, who performs the majority of the guitars on the album, as well as some drums and keyboards. The record also features guest performances from Dava She Wolf (Star & Dagger, Cycle Sluts From Hell), Alison Babylon (The Beautiful Bastards, Oblivion Grin), David Brenner (Gridfailure), Elizabeth “Le Fey” Gomez (Globelamp), Jem Violet, Nate Kelley (Shabutie, Laterals, PPSP), Kentro, and Justin Pierrot (Stormland), and is completed with cover art by Julie Catona (Future Illustrations).

Thanks a lot to anyone who has supported this project so far, now heading into (I think) my 12th year as Walking Bombs. Feels good to be building something, however humble, out of what was once just me and an acoustic guitar and some sheets of paper. Read more about the new release in full HERE. 

Wear Your Wounds are preparing to release one of the best things I have had my ears full of all year, Rust On The Gates Of Heaven. The record is out in a matter of days and is going to blow people’s minds, building on the natural strengths of the first record with a more organic confidence. This fascinating group is way too powerful to be stifled by the “post-rock” tag, creating immersive almost impressionistic songs that swallow you whole and can take the form of dream or nightmare. It is very exciting to hear Jacob Bannon expand this initial solo project into a band that really defies limitations and is doing stuff just as impressive as Converge while also pushing Bannon’s creative growth exponentially.

Suffice to say, I am really a fan of this record and you should all check out the new audio for “Rainbow Fades”, one of the more hallucinatory songs on the album that glides through a sort of sorrowful calm with moments that even recall Pink Floyd. Killer shit.

In Mourning prepare to release new album

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 10:41 AM (PST)

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.

Hey friends. So, the “President” thinks the Moon is part of Mars. Congrats to the tech death scene for being more scientifically accurate on weird space album covers than the fucking President at this point. Anyway, let’s get some weekend metal news going for ya on this fine Saturday.

First, go see Dark Phoenix. It was not perfect but was better than like 4-5 other X films (I didn’t personally like Deadpool 2 much cuz of the egregious excessive prison rape jokes). Sophie T was friggin’ X-cellent as a younger more insecure Jean coming into hard truths. I am confused since she already had the Phoenix Force in the Apocalypse movie, so that was weird. That said (SPOILERS), it is character driven, female focused, Nightcrawler goes HAM, there’s a Dazzler cameo, friggin’ Magneto has an amazing dirt of your shoulder train crunching scene that is almost as good as Luke’s shoulder brush off moment in The Last Jedi, there’s a Dazzler cameo and we finally have a good X film not overly dependent on Wolverine. While the alien villains are underdeveloped, I thought the Prof X/Beast/Magneto dynamics and the backstory childhood Jean stuff was very well done, the action was amazing, the ending was a beautiful send off to these films and overall while obviously not the classic comic the TONE very much suited and fit great with this particular franchise and what it needed. Jean’s protective motivations near the finale and love and emotion as strength mantra was beautiful and well done, the trippy Phoenix effects at the climax were super cool on a huge screen and I actually would go see it again today if I had the cash.

And the big weekend news is…Despised Icon are going to kick some major ass on their upcoming tour with slammers Ingested plus the very heavy Kublai Khan, and no joke Shadow of Intent. As if that wasn’t enough fucking legends Suffocation and Devourment plus Angelmaker, I Am, and I Declare War will appear on select dates. That’s a lot of mosh for anyone.

Ingested drummer Lyn Jeffs commented, “We’re stoked to be touring with our buddies in Despised Icon. This is something we have talked about doing with each other for nearly 13 years and we can’t wait to smash it with the boys in Canada and the USA this Autumn. What an awesome line up too, we’ll be joined by Kublai Khan, Shadow of Intent and in selected cities with the boys in Suffocation, Devourment, Angelmaker, I Am & I Declare War.”
