Gateway to Hell stream “Tin Roof”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 2:39 PM (PST)

Maryland doomsters Gateway to Hell are streaming their newest song “Tin Roof” via The Obelisk.

“Tin Roof” comes off the band’s upcoming album Clovers due out later this month via Unholy Anarchy Records.

This is what the band had to say about “Tin Roof”:

“‘Tin Roof’ is our take on the dread conjured every time you turn on the TV news or pick up a newspaper. There’s an overwhelming sense that society as we know it is on a downward curve and that the ones up top are just completely oblivious as the world crumbles around them. The title is a shout-out to ‘Love Shack’ by the B-52s. We felt the pause in the song would be the perfect opportunity for Cindy Wilson to belt out the ‘Tin roof, rusted!’ from ‘Love Shack,’ so ‘Tin Roof’ was what we named the early demo tracks and it just stuck. We felt it fit thematically — years of neglecting the simple upkeep leading to a full collapse of the house. This song is about as political as we’ll ever get but we tried to be careful not to be too specific, as there’s nothing more boring than when a singer sounds like they are reading from a newspaper. As always, the riff comes first…”

Head over to The Obelisk to stream “Tin Roof” now.

Warbeast stream new song “Maze of the Minotaur”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 at 6:10 PM (PST)

Texas thrashers Warbeast are streaming their latest song “Maze of the Minotaur” over at Decibel.

“Maze of the Minotaur” comes off of Warbeast’s upcoming album Enter The Arena due out August 4 via Housecore Records.

The record features newest Warbeast recruits, guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud.

“I wanted write in a different mode than we normally do; some more mid-paced and slower breakdowns mixed with thrash,” relays guitarist Scott Shelby of the track. “So this happened to really stand out as a notable song. I’m also proud to break out my version of Tony Iommi leads from the Born Again era on this track. Then of course I gave it to [vocalist] Bruce [Corbitt] and he roped it off with the crazy story of the ‘Maze Of The Minotaur.'” 

“My favorite subjects to write about are obviously about horror, psychos, medieval times, and Greek mythology,” Corbitt adds. “I’ve wanted to write a song about the Minotaur for years [In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man]. As soon as I heard the music Shelby came up with, I knew this was the one to capture the atmosphere. The chorus part of the music pretty much spoke to me and I could hear it actually saying the lyrics. That’s when you know it’s going to be a special song.”

Corbitt was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The disease is treatable though rarely curable. Corbitt is currently undergoing an intensive schedule of radiation treatments and played his final show on May 27.

The band’s CD release party will be taking place on July 14. Vocals will be handled by Anselmo, Edwin Neal (Texas Chain Saw Massacre), and Wayne Abney (Hammer Witch).

Comments Anselmo, “In light of the complicated situations surrounding Bruce Corbitt, lead vocalist for Rigor Mortis and Warbeast, respectively, most of us sisters and brothers in the heavy metal community are very aware of, I’d like to extend an enormous amount of just-praise upon him. Since the late 1980s to the present, Bruce has always been a person to count on as a friend, and an excellent man to work closely with. Our love of music brought us together and created an unbreakable bond, and that is a priceless cornerstone that can’t be ignored when examining one’s life in hindsight. Bruce has always shot me straight, given me life advice, and from my perspective, has always been there for anyone and everyone in need, for a myriad of unselfish reasons. I thank all that’s good out there I had the chance to be a part of the four Warbeast releases, and I feel Bruce’s best is on their latest record, Into The Arena. He’s a warrior, a fighter, and best of all, for the better of the genre, one of the most recognized voices in all of heavy metal. Well done, Big Brother.”

Five Horse Johnson stream ‘Jake Leg Boogie’ via Echoes and Dust

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 3:52 PM (PST)

Toledo blues rockers Five Horse Johnson are streaming their latest full-length album Jake Leg Boogie over at Echoes and Dust.

Eric Oblander (vocals/harp) had this to say about the album:

“In many ways, making Jake Leg Boogie was one of the easiest albums to create, even though it took four years to make — sorry, Small Stone [laughs]. Our drummer Tim Gahagan is the engine that drives this band. Over the years, we have been very blessed to have a bevy of kick ass drummers sit in with us. I mean, it’s not every band who gets to make not one, buttwo albums with the great Jean Paul Gaster. But we all grew up with Tim, he was our very first drummer decades ago, and few people understand how we want to do this thing better than he does. That, along with Phil D taking a larger role in the writing process really opened up some fresh angles for us. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard Steve or Brad play better on any of our albums to date, and Brad’s lyric and vocal performances are the best yet. I striped back my harp playing and vocals a bit and tried to find the juicy, primal center, and getting back to collaborating with Brad on lyrics really helped me find fresh, new ways to sing some of the thoughts that were rolling around in my head. Also, thanks to artist Mark Dancey’s understanding of the FIVE HORSE JOHNSON mission, the album art was, as usual, exactly what we wanted and needed. At the end of the day FIVE HORSE JOHNSON is just a group of guys who like to laugh at each other’s jokes, throw back a few beers, travel the world playing music together, and record the coolest albums we can along the way, to document our experiences. Sometimes, if you don’t over think it and just get to it, good things happen. And that’s what’s at the heart of our new album Jake Leg Boogie. We hope ya’ll dig listening to it as much as we dug making it.”

Head over to Echoes and Dust to stream Jake Leg Boogie in its entirety.

Origin post official playthrough for “Accident and Error”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 11:52 AM (PST)

Unprecedented reigning tech death champs Origin have posted a playthrough for a new song “Accident and Error”. The song is from the band’s latest ear fuck Unparalleled Universe.

Unparalleled Universe was recorded and mixed at Chapman Studios in February 2017 alongside longtime collaborator and engineer Robert Rebeck (Tech N9ne). The band emerged with ten new songs including a cover of Brujeria’s “Revolución”, that were mastered in March 2017 by Colin Marston at Menegroth – The Thousand Caves (Altar of Plagues, Jarobe, Krallice) and wrapped in a cover prepared by Filip Ivanovic (Dismember, Cryptopsy, Heavy Montreal, Gorguts).

“It feels like an Origin album, but it’s unparalleled to what you might expect if you haven’t heard us for 10 or 15 years” says Paul Ryan. “To me, it’s a true reflection of ourselves. I compare it to an action movie. Our earlier material is filled with action from beginning to end. Now, the idea is to add a little more depth and dynamics. You could say there are some twists in the plot musically”.

“Mankind Will Have No Mercy” is the latest single from Goatwhore. New album Vengeful Ascension, set for worldwide release this Friday, June 23rd, via Metal Blade Records.

If you don’t like Goatwhore for some reason you should just leave this site now. They have never made a bad record and basically combine many of the best attributes of real metal into a consistent and world defiling whole. Sammy remains the riff master extraordinaire and are there really that many frontpersons as metal as Ben? We thinketh not. Hail the whore! Give me a G. Give me an O! Give me an A! Give me a T! Nevermind. But really.

Check out the audio menace of “Mankind Will Have No Mercy” at: metalblade.com/goatwhore – where the record can also be pre-ordered.

Today we visit Argentina for some pulverizing thrashing mastery. GRANADA bring us their newest single “Solve et Coagula” and we dare you not to bang your heads! This is focused with a modern and precise kill factor but also has a very raw edge of anger for old school fans of 90’s metal and hardcore. Fans of Machine Head, Krisiun or any any proper death/thrash will be blown away.

GRANADA was formed in the year 2008 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Founded by Guillermo Estévez (vocals and guitar), the band´s debut show was in 2010 with Black Dahlia Murder (USA), and continued with a series of shows in every possible venue in Buenos Aires and the rest of Argentina. With three full lengths and one EP, the band has crossed the border by touring the neighboring countries and achieving huge admiration from audiences all over the world.

GRANADA achieves their own sound with their 4th album Sincronizado, recorded at “El Pie Recording Studio” and Chulengo, produced by Guillermo Estévez. The album will be released by Symbol of Domination Prod. (Purchase HERE), and will be distributed by Icarus Records (Argentina) and Blacktape Unorthodox Records (Argentina)

The band’s remarks on the track are as follows:

“Solve” or “solutio” refers to the breaking down of elements and “Coagula” refers to their coming together. In the process of transmuting base metal into gold or arriving at the Philosopher’s stone, this contained both literal and hidden meaning. Solve et Coagula expresses transmutation from base to a finer state, the perpetual goal of spiritual growth and human evolution.

SepticFlesh announce “Codex Omega”, premiere single

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 11:43 AM (PST)

Holy shit. How do SepticFlesh always manage to top themselves? From art to musical execution, they truly never leave a stone un-turned. This freaky ass Aliens meets LoTR looking art gave me chills and along with the new Cormorant Diaspora art shows that the best bands care about everything from visual to musical impact.

The Greek legends SF’s new album is called Codex Omega you can hear a completely stunning new symphonic extreme metal masterpiece called “Dante’s Inferno” HERE. It sounds even heavier than some of the most intense stuff they have released in recent years! The drums are absolutely insane.

Available September 1, 2017 in North America on Prosthetic Records, Codex Omega will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a US indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl, and on all digital outlets. Preorders are up now and available at http://smarturl.it/SepticfleshCO.

Norway’s Legacy Of Emptiness stream “Over The Past”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 7:48 PM (PST)

June 12th will see Norwegian band Legacy Of Emptiness release Over The Past via Black Lion Records  (order digitall and physical copies HERE). The symphonic black metal project has Over The Past was mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios and features fantastic cover artwork created by Alex Tartsus that compliments the musical work perfectly and will draw you in.

The album features lots of new material and has a total run time of 48:45 minutes with nary a sleeper in the batch. It’s really a very strong and significantly gripping record that reminds us of the days when we all didn’t have 800 options by half invested here and gone again bands and so had to choose what albums to buy wisely, the point being that this is one you would likely play again and again and get your money’s worth. If nothing else, at least make sure you hear “Evening Star” feat. a cameo from Swanö and a compelling and melodic sound that will coerce Old Man’s Child, Katatonia and Dark Funeral fans alike.

The band comments:

As the title will hint we are now writing a new chapter. This album as been a journey to hell and back for us all. Accidents,cancer and other illnesses has been thrown our way from the day we started writing and recording this beast… Over the past!

Greek metal is always very interesting, from the tendency for dark melody to infect the riffs, to more classic mid tempo march parts and powerful vocals. Serpent Lord (not to be confused with this Serpent Lord or THIS one) will appeal to fans of legendary bands like Rotting Christ and Varathron, sure, but they also have enough epic qualities that feel less dark and more like surviving the battle – as if there is a little bit of Sabaton influence in there as well Mediterranean influences. Whatever is in the recipe, they are doing it right.

This song is comes their demo CD which was released on May 13th, at their show with the legendary band Omen, and it will also be included on their upcoming debut album (to be recorded this summer at Infected Studios). We wish them well. There are some sick as heck awesome Serpent named bands from Serpent Crown to Serpentine Path, but Serpent Cult are welcome to add to the snake pile if they keep putting out music this metal.

Taking a break binging old Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes before they leave Netflix in a week (shouldn’t they have a permanent residence for fans!!) to spread the damn good word that Prophets Of Rage‘s “Unfuck The World” is here and it is fire. A tight and well executed video directed by Michael Moore, great performances and live footage from everyone involved and did I mention Tom Morello’s illest solo in years? I mean, Tom always plays cool sounds but this one is extra spicy. And shout out to whoever threw in the Blair Imani clip briefly, cuz she is an awesome person and inspiring. Also really feeling the B-Real verse on this one, though of course Chuck’s was cool also.

Nestlé has been a leader in the effort to privatize public water, Trump is pulling out of climate agreements and kleptocracy is darkening skies with greedy clouds over all of our heads whether we are woke to it or not. RATM and Audioslave fans as well as of course Cypress and especially Public Enemy fans can relax knowing this original song kicks fucking major ass. Watch the video for “Unfuck The World” HERE.

A debut album from these live and direct legends is due in September and features 12 original songs produced by Brendan O’Brien http://smarturl.it/Prophets

If they are all as good as this one, we are gonna be in fine fighting form. #resist

Fear Those Who Fear Him is the third and hotly coveted new dark metal power emission from the extreme metal warlocks of Vallenfyre. This song is not about any hobnobbery with spirits and sprites, though the band do have serious British mojo. No, this crusher deals hard in real world problems facing us right now.

Guitarist/vocalist Greg Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) comments:
Nihilist is about those who take their ridiculous holy book seriously and carry it out to the letter. In light of recent events it is dedicated to the innocent victims of the Manchester attack.

Scheduled for worldwide release via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on June 2, 2017, Fear Those Who Fear Him is an unforgiving musical mixture of death, doom, grind, and crust offering 12 ferocious new tracks. The album is available for pre-order on CD, LP and digital download at http://smarturl.it/VallenfyreFTWFH

Bison premiere new song “Until The Earth Is Empty” at Decibel

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 11:22 AM (PST)

Judging by the above promo photo, Vancouver’s Bison have left their eyeballs wherever they dropped off the B.C. – but NBD! They still have ears you will notice and even if they were (probably are) deaf, the rumblings of their level of heaviness are so vast that the band undoubtedly would still manage to craft their brand of hairy, dimebag and meth pouch rubber banded to your nutsack in an NA meeting heavy sludge metal. Actually, hold the meth. I think eyeball eating bath salts and face picking methery are more of a Florida thing than Vancouver, though again we are wondering where dudes eyes are.

It’s raining hard and I just ate tacos and am severely unmotivated because I am in the middle of a move, but this new Bison track slays enough to postpone my nap over. Def feeling the cool rhythmic shifts and subtly melodic dissonant riffage. I feel like Ken Mode and Kowloon fans could also dig this as much as, say, High On Fire disciples. It even has a cool, kind of Cormac McCarthy-esque meaning. I assumed “Until The Earth Is Empty” meant they would party longer than humanity and be the last ragers on Earth (assuming Andrew WK or Keith Richards are not the last), or that maybe it was about our inclination as a species to head towards destruction full tilt. BUT NO!

“It’s something my partner said to me in regards to finding our sons, if they were taken or missing,” offers guitarist/vocalist James Farwell of the track. “It’s the idea that you would look for something or someone that you loved no matter how long it took, or until the earth was empty. In her case that would also mean killing everyone in her path. She is very passionate.”

Adds Decibel, “You Are Not the Ocean is loaded with sludgy, slow-but-focused riffs, melodic guitar solos, and heavy percussion, but it’s also emotionally heavy, as you can hear on new song ‘Until The Earth Is Empty.’”

Hear “Until The Earth Is Empty” courtesy of Decibel at THIS LOCATION. Annnnd don’t forget to pre order the new album HERE.
