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.

Enchantya release sophomore album

Portuguese metallers Enchantya’s newest album drops today! The album On Light And Wrath is out via Inverse Records.

On Light And Wrath was recorded, mixed and mastered by Fernando Matias (Moonspell, Bizarra Locomotiva, We Are The Damned, Sinistro, etc.). Says singer Rute Fevereiro of the album:

“On Light and Wrath is Enchantya’s musical essay about the two extremes of the human existence and the struggle for balance within and outside the soul. Inspired by the union of opposites Enchantya present this concept in their music, facing darkness in heavy tracks like “Last Moon of March” and “From the Ashes” and diving into the light in moments like “Near Life Experience” and “Downfall to Power”, with the interlude “Alma” making the bridge between two worlds of emotions that are complementary. With the presence of unforgettable guests, a choir and orchestrations, Enchantya promise with “On Light and Wrath” a listening experience that you won’t forget.”

You can check out the music video for “The Beginning” here.

May Metal Mass Destruction: Exumer, Wormwitch, EZOX tidbits

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 9:55 AM (PST)

Exumer want you to know about tick prevention/Photo credit: Silvy Maatman

 

Today we would like to start by saying an RIP to icons of metal art Rosław Szaybo and Larry Carroll, known for their work with Judas Priest and Slayer, respectively.

“Our memories of Rosław Szaybo are strong and he will always be remembered for his now legendary covers he created for Judas Priest as well as the Priest logo – our thoughts and condolences are with his family – love to Ros,” Judas Priest said of Roslaw.

I also want to say that today, 5/23 is always a somber day for me for personal reasons, the anniversary of the passing of my first drummer. It is important to me to spread his drumming since his life was cut short rather young and he was a great talent in the 90’s Woodstock music scene and good guy, so humor my tweet here – please. One love.

On a brighter note, we have a lot of powerful metal news for you today.

First up, metal masters Exumer have a new video out.

The idea behind Exumer’s new video clip “King’s End” is to visually pay homage to the look and visual aesthetics of the MTV/Headbanger’s Ball era clips from the late 80s and early 90s. Especially when CGI became available as a tool to add effects that were otherwise financially impossible to obtain. The clip was entirely shot, edited and directed by Goreminister in Essen (Turock Club)/Germany during Exumer’s last European dates.

Exumer singer Mem V. Stein: “We were approached by our buddy Goreminister, who has his own You Tube channel and is a pretty known character in the Metal scene in and around Essen, if we would be interested in a new video that resembles old Headbanger’s Ball clips. We instantly were on board with the concept and are now excited to launch something that uniquely resembles the early 90s over the top videos we devoured back when Metal was still on Television.”

Get ready for the fun contradictory combination of nostalgic feelings for a new music video, lifers.

What have you all been listening to? I am real keen on the new Wormwitch Heaven That Dwells Within that came out in April, which I finally purchased last night HERE. Even ordered the physical cd cuz it will be nice to have for driving in areas where streaming isn’t so good. Super snarled, dourly melodic blackened deathy thrashened song writing dark majesty with just enough balance between bite and precision.

 

About one year and a half after the official release of their EP Crawl To Paradise (2018), French melodic metallers EZOX just officially released its debut album called One Last Breath, produced @ Recuiem Prod studios (All Dogmas We Hate) and available right now for CD & Digital editions on bandcamp and the main legal platforms.

In addition to the album-release, the band also unveiled a 4K music video for the single “For Today” available on YouTube platform.

Stream the whole album on Bandcamp .

Shattered Sun release new song “Shades of Melodie”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 4:43 PM (PST)

Hey gang. I am all achy from rocking out on Sunday to P.O.D. in Poughkeepsie and having fun over the weekend. They rocked the house and also dedicated their mellower song “Beautiful” to Clown from Slipknot in the wake of his daughter’s tragic passing and it was a moving moment. I’d also like to say briefly that Terry from Obituary’s daughter also just passed away in a tragic accident and to please help if you can.

There is an online fundraiser for her kids and stuff and it is very sad what happened. I might not have always agreed with some of Butler’s recent politics about Trump’s wall the last few years but I certainly have compassion for anyone who lost a child to tragedy and I think it is very important we lift one another up in the metal scene through things like this. It’s a meaningful way we can create more healing and understanding.

Texas Metalcore/trad thrash crossover band Shattered Sun have a new album on the way and have released a stunner of a new track via Outburn and a must read interview for fans of the band on their newest era. The song also has to do with daughters, which I guess is our unintentional theme today – but that’s ok! Be thankful for your loved ones.

All I can say is the song represents a major leap forward for the dudes and the new line-up and changes in the act seem healthy and exciting. I love this band and have always had good experiences talking to them or seeing them live and fully support them as an important younger rising act. I think they are between labels at the moment but that likely wont last long and either way we will support them around these parts.

Vocalist Marcos Leal says of the new song, “This song is particularly special to me given it’s about my daughter Melodie. It’s safe to say that becoming a father changes a man – it becomes your every living and dying breath to be the guide and protector to your child. I know a lot of people can relate to the message of this song and I’m excited for you all to get a taste of the new era of Shattered Sun!”

Slipknot return with bad ass anthem “Unsainted”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 1:37 PM (PST)

Man, if this here be “mainstream metal” I am not complaining. Like every other heavy music news outlet today we had to remind ya about new Slipknot. The fiercely good jam “Unsainted” from We Are Not Your Kind already has over a million YouTube views, which is friggin’ nuts. I don’t know about you but I got chills imagining how the live singalongs with the crowd are gonna be for this number and I already am digging it more than anything on the previous record. This reminds me of the first album combined with The Subliminal Verses but with a towering maturity and confidence rather than the initial hunger of the pack. Very solid effort from a band this far into their career who could be just serving up a plate of shit and raking in the cash anyway, but Corey Taylor and company care more than that.

It is crazy when you hear a rock song for the first time and can safely say ,”Ok, this is an easy pick for one of the biggest rock songs of the year”, but here we are. And it shouldn’t be startling since Slipknot have some of the most diehard fans around and are very consistent.

Sólstafir have released the video for “Bláfjall”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 1:19 PM (PST)

In support of their exceptionally good Beredreyminn release, Icelandic post-rock band  Sólstafir have released a characteristically cinematic video for “Bláfjall” via Classic Rock Magazine HERE.

SÓLSTAFIR comment: “Here it is, our 3rd video by the almighty Bowen Staines. After we did our last video with Bowen, ‘Lágnætti,’ we talked about for years to make another video together. As usual, adventures are like magnets when we join up forces, and this one was no different. We are super proud of the result, and yet again, Bowen shows that he is the master of this game. Enjoy, ‘Bláfjall.'”

Director Bowen Staines adds: “‘Bláfjall’ was produced and filmed in Iceland from August – October 2018, and edited until April 2019 at the Don’t Panic Films studio in Massachusetts. While originally shot in 4K, the finished product was then scanned in its entirety onto 35mm film. ‘Bláfjall’ tells the story of a mind overtaken with grief, and the mental gymnastics often employed to circumvent grief in order to avoid confronting it.

“Everyone has their secret sorrows which the world knows not; wounds that never show on the body. In ’Bláfjall,’ these wounds take the form of memories relived in the present, yet altered by the knowledge of what will come in the future. If grief were sentient, it would attack these memories with the voracity of a virus slowly destroying a computer hard drive, or an illness ravaging a body.

“Pre-production for ‘Bláfjall’ started almost two years ago, and the first day of principal photography began in Hvalfjörður, Southwest Iceland. Predictably, it was so windy (a 115kg dolly track blew over), that I had to rewrite that day’s five-page shotlist in the trunk of Addis’s Jeep.

“The rest of the video came together wonderfully, thanks to our cast of Flosi Þorgeirsson (HAM, Glerakur), Bella Morgan, Palli Banine, and Minerva Geirdal. The only other notable thing that happened during this production were the days leading up to crashing that infamous Mercedes.

“The car was an automatic, and the transmission slipped like butter. The momentum from the slightest forward acceleration, say, at a stoplight, would send the gearshift flying back into first gear, and the engine redlining; there is no sound quite like doing 40 on the highway in first gear. I was heading to pick up Flosi in Reykjavík, when suddenly I was doing 60kph in reverse while still going forwards, with the whole car transforming into an industrial noise album.

“The day we filmed the crash, we’d spent hours lining the car up, bracing the steering wheel properly, and closing the roads. It looked like it was dead-on, and then it wasn’t. It missed the other car by centimeters, veered off the road, hit an embankment on the side of a someone’s driveway, cleared the entire driveway, went through a fence, and crashed into a rock in front of a horse stable. The next try was dead-on.

“A heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to everyone who was involved with the making of Sólstafir’s ‘Bláfjall.’ To the guys in the band: thank you for trusting me so unconditionally, and allowing me to tell this story with your music. As always, it is a true pleasure to create with you.

“We hope that you enjoy watching this as much as we enjoyed making it.
Takk fyrir okkur.”

Gloom-core freaky deakies Motionless In White have quite a vast following of similarly minded ghouls who have been waiting for the band to release more stuff from Disguise (available June 7th). Well, the band have a new video out for “Undead Ahead 2: The Tale of the Midnight Ride” which you can check out below!

I gotta say they are getting better at perfecting the heavy to spooky combo-splatter platter and the animation is pretty rad. Plus, the cleans sound a lot more confident. We stan Headless Horseman romantic tragedy-core!

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.”

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.
