Falls Of Rauros reveal new track “Weapons of Refusal”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 3:41 PM (PST)

Portland, Maine metallers Falls Of Rauros are streaming their newest song “Weapons of Refusal” over at Revolver.

“Weapons of Refusal” comes off the band’s forthcoming album Patterns In Mythology due out July 19 via Gilead Media.

“‘Weapons of Refusal’ ultimately wound up being one of the more ‘optimistic’ songs on Patterns in Mythology, despite the overwhelming and borderline hopeless subject matter of the lyrics,” confesses guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Aaron Charles. “The title is a reference to Situationist thinker Raoul Vaneigem’s ‘The Revolution of Everyday Life’ which provided a wealth of inspiration around the period this album was written. The lyrics act as an entreaty to face down the violence and ugliness bombarding us daily and seek to build a better world, in whichever manner it must be done; it’s an encouraging and vengeful song about turning the weapons of the enemy back upon them.”

Check out Falls Of Rauros live show dates here.

And stream “Weapons of Refusal” via Revolver.

Immortal Bird stream new song “Vestigial Warnings”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 10:26 AM (PST)

Chicago metallers Immortal Bird have released their newest song “Vestigial Warnings.”

This grotesque track comes off the band’s upcoming album Thrive On Neglect which will be released on July 5 via 20 Buck Spin.

Says vocalist Rae Amitay of the track:

“This was the first full song we wrote together as our current configuration, and we’ve been playing it together for almost two years. Finally having it recorded and released feels like a significant step. Lyrically, this one is more ‘political’ than the rest of the material on the album. I’m not trying to be indirect by using metaphor, but I also don’t want to limit people’s perspective by being overt. With the ‘eyeless, glowing grubs…sickly white, dying still…choir of weakened gasping…,’ I’m not saying that I was thinking about certain people who occupy positions of power in this country but… Actually, that is what I’m saying. ‘They’ll tell you this is how it has to be. Abandon hope and worship apathy.'”

The upcoming Thrive On Neglect was produced by Dave Otero (Archspire, Cattle Decapitation, Khemmis).

Immortal Bird are heading out on a two-week tour starting today. Check out tour dates as well as “Vestigial Warnings” here.

Redbait‘s pending June 14th release Cages (Pre order HERE) is mandatory listening if you don’t want to miss out on one of the brightest lights of 2019’s underground. The band’s New Age Records debut will make you feel revolution singing in your blood, a powerful second EP from a group with so much promise ahead of them. Listening to their guitars churning like a raging river atop powerful drums backing up intense political vocals, you can’t deny the immediacy or the band’s ability to lay it all on the line. There is nothing worse to me in music than being apathetic about your art or platform and no one would ever accuse Redbait of that.

Today we are thrilled to debut one of my favorite songs from their new release, the thrilling composition “Bred For The Knife”. The production is pitch perfect between remembering energy over pristine while still sounding incredible, well serving the driving and subtly complex song. This one has a few tricks up the sleeve you wouldn’t expect from where it begins, including my favorite bridge of the EP (it kind of sounds like Queensryche meets Bane!). This band knows just where to give more and when to hold back. It’s exceptional. I hope someone whispers in the ears of Rolo Tomassi or Propagandhi to take them on tour immediately.

Says Madeline –

“We wrote “Bred for the Knife” as a commentary on the commodification of animals, specifically in factory farming. The problem of violence against animals isn’t taken seriously and I think that can largely be attributed to the fact that the butchering and processing of animals bodies are discreet and avoided. It isn’t a practice that a lot of people are willing to confront. The lyrics mention animal cruelty, environmental destruction, and worker exploitation as interconnected struggles in this industry. The commodification of animals is a cruel outcome of capitalist society. It’s something that most of us feel very compelled to talk about and inspire conversation through the music we make.”

It really is an important issue. Some pro life dipshit on Twitter was arguing with my girlfriend yesterday and saw no harm in not caring about the environment or animals when she brought up why he ate meat if he was pro-life. He said he doesn’t eat babies, refusing to see her point. Well, bud – you ever have leg of lamb? Congrats. You ate a baby. It’s still a baby. Asshole.

Recorded and mixed by Will Jameson, Cages will be available on 7” vinyl from New Age Records.

Transparent green: 200
Transparent pink: 400
’77 Pressing (transparent pink with green New Age label): 77

Digital version will be available 06-14-19 at https://redbait.bandcamp.com/

Pittsburgh heavyweights Slaves BC have released an intense new song “300 Dead Rapist Priests Floating at the Bottom of the Ocean”.

Says the band ,”This song was written in response to the report about the over 300 priests in Pennsylvania that have committed child rape in their churches.”

If you think the song title is just meant to shock or ‘virtue signaling’ you are 1. an asshole and 2. gonna have to eat your words when you hear how the track masterfully manages to induce horrific claustrophobic anxious agony and never cheapens such serious subject matter. The song is very long and while very well done, the oppressiveness almost feels inescapable. It is like an eerie micro/macro of how long trauma can stay with someone and ripple outward to affect everything in their life. I found it a rewarding but also very challenging listen for that reason, albeit it is inarguably a killer song. One of the most meaningful and extreme, emotional and incredibly well executed performances yet from a band that hopefully has no plans of slowing down applying their vital pushback to the dipshits, edgelords and relics of the metal world.

Here’s hoping as many of you give this your attention this week as those who are scrambling to watch another exploitative Ted Bundy doc this week. Let’s support actually helping victims.

Cult Of Luna release new single “The Silent Man”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, May 6, 2019 at 1:03 PM (PST)

It feels corny to call them cult heroes since ‘cult’ is literally in their band name, but Cult Of Luna are exactly that. Expanding boundaries until they have basically charted their own course away from preconceptions and burdensome genre limitations, the band continue their cosmic climb on the noisy new thriller “The Silent Man”. This is one hell of a great way to start my week, I don’t know about you.

A new full length is expected in Fall via Metal Blade, but for now this is a generous new taste of the band’s first non collaborative material since Vertikal 1&2. Some beautiful, world moving big guitar work in here (though the vox sound a little loud in the mix for me for that kind of screaming). Still, that’s the closest to a complaint I have. This is a powerful work that crashes down on you like a massive wave. It is so big in scope you can’t imagine anything else being the title track, but I guess we will see. Loving the semi-spaghetti western 6:20 mark post-rock section as well. Yes! Well done, gents.

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.

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.

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.”

Extreme harsh-grinding quartet FULL OF HELL share the official audio for “Silmaril” off their highly anticipated, new album Weeping Choir.

Longtime fans will be hard pressed to not consider this one of their most scorching and heavy tracks thus far. I am super stoked on this precise and deadly brutality!

FULL OF HELL Comments:
“Silmaril is about the upheaval of forbidden knowledge. We enlisted Paulo Paguntalan, NYC’s own purveyor of gore and death for additional vocal duties on this song. ‘All goes onward and outward, all collapses’.”

Weeping Choir is due out May 17th on CD/LP/CS/Digital. Physical packages are available for pre-order via Relapse.com HERE. Digital Downloads / Streaming Services are available HERE.

 

FULL OF HELL are also featured as the cover artists for Decibel Magazine’s April 2019 issue. The band will release a limited Decibel Flexi exclusive track “Thundering Hammers”, remixed by JK Broadrick, in the near future.

This Friday (April 19th), Allegaeon will release their new album, Apoptosis, via Metal Blade Records. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, Apoptosis is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in the band’s songwriting.
