Cattle Decap have been pretty much my favorite band in death metal for quite awhile and Death Atlas is further proof it is hard to defeat them when it comes to meaningful and at times darkly cynical yet insightful extreme metal. I assume those of you who give a shit about metal probably know about the recent late 2019 release already so I won’t insult your feeble (oops) intelligence with too many details other than that it rules and you should get it. I honestly feel like an asshole that I didn’t review it when it came out but seasonal depression is a bitch and obviously we need to catch up on reviews right now, period. Haha, it isn’t helping that now that Spring is here we have a pandemic but I will try and post some cool album reviews for you hounds soon. Anyway, here’s a funny ass morbid video in the meantime. Ahhhhh. They have manage to kind of politely underscore what doomed fucking idiots the human race are yet again.

“With the cancellation of our ironically titled ‘Europandemic Tour’ and social distancing recommendations set in place, we found ourselves with not much to do. So we figured why not address the elephant in the room in the form of a music video for ‘Bring Back The Plague’ and just film it on our mobile phones instead of with an actual crew. Dave didn’t even have access to a drum kit and nobody is leaving their houses anyways so we decided to lighten the mood with a video. Everything from the band name to the lyrics to the merchandise to the imagery have always been heavily steeped in metaphors and irony always with tongue firmly in cheek, so this new video by David Hall at Uneasy Sleeper may just be our coup de gras…for better, or for worse.” – Travis Ryan

Dying Fetus share new MilkBoy Session mini-documentary

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 12:46 PM (PST)

 

Dying Fetus are one of the true legacy acts in the Relapse stable still slamming out brutal death metal with no impulses towards making it more palatable for squares, obviously. It just isn’t what they do. They are too busy “Reveling In The Abyss” of pure evil.

A mini-doc was recently filmed at MilkBoy Studios in Philadelphia, PA in 2017 upon the release of Wrong One To Fuck With, the band chronicled the re-recording of their classic track “One Shot, One Kill” with Swedish Producer/Engineer Mattias Nillson. The video, featuring interviews, a new “One Shot, One Kill” performance, and behind-the-scenes footage, can be seen below. It is pretty damn cool and insightful for fans.

Regarding the re-recording of “One Shot, One Kill”; Bassist/Vocalist Sean Beasley comments:
“I’m excited to hear and put my vocals on there and hear Trey belt it out. It was our first video song basically, we recorded it at the old Masquerade in Atlanta. Mike [Kimball] was our old guitarist, he was new in the band then and it was different where we didn’t use straight up raw amps for the first time. We used a racked mount mix and it was a new thing for us at the time.”

Hey folks. Hope none of you are listening to Trump and returning to work because you will kill people and the choice between killing grandma for capitalism and staying safe at home is a false one when social democracy could undo the evil crony capitalism and still take care of us with safety net relief. DO NOT TRUST THESE EVIL FUCKS,

Anyway, venting out of the way…here is a new video from socially aware thrash masters Sacred Reich. Our hearts go out to the guys for the recent death of founding member Jason Rainey and we want to help them boost this great new video (shot and edited by Fiaz Farrelly) .

Front-man and bassist Phil Rind comments: “We want to put something positive out there right now. ‘Salvation’ is about music’s ability to encourage and inspire us and bring us together.”

Hey everyone. Sending so much solidarity, love and blazing horns to anyone scared or discouraged during the current viral pandemic. I am quarantined and sipping what I hope is not the last peach-nectarine RedBull on the planet and wanted to lift your spirits with some metal videos you may not have seen yet!

Last year, Swedish-American power metal supergroup NORTHTALE played two concerts in Japan as part of the Evoken Fest. Today, they release a new live video for ‘Time To Rise’, that you can watch below. We of course hope you are not seeing any big live shows like this at this current time due to the virus. Fuck that band The Stereophonics who were willfully reckless about it in the UK. Asshats.

Anyway, here is some power metal fix for ya! The fist pump/solo part is awesome. I hope no one on Earth takes for granted the luxury of celebrating together in a crowd ever again and supports rock and metal when it can return to live stages safely!

The band comments: “We hope everyone is staying safe during these crazy times! Since we know you’re gonna be at home and we can’t really play live for the foreseeable future, how about we show you a little bit of what our Japan tour was like? Thanks to director Jason McNamara who shot and edited this (not to mention hanging and driving us around) over the 2 nights we performed in Tokyo at Evoken Metal Fest last September! And finally, thanks to Yama Darkblaze for bring us to Japan, Ryo and our label King Records, Makoto Suzuki at ESP Guitars, as well as KORG and Pearl Drums for all the support!”

Next up is Belgian band Solitude Within who charm with a well executed new song called “Astray” (above). The band’s energy picks up as the song goes on and the sort of just above mid tempo metallic surge of most of it serves the rising feeling and various elements well for a satisfying release. I also had to include this band because of their name going along well with the idea of staying home during Covid-19. I am sure that is probably not what they ever thought the band name was about but I am repurposing it here to remind you all to be safe, my friends!

I enjoyed Emmelie Arents voice and particularly liked the drummer who I believe if Facebook is correct is named Hans Sarazyn. He reminds me of Mike Bordin a little but that is probably mostly hairstyle similarities.

“The song “Astray” is about being lost in an overwhelming world, being caught in lies and broken things. It’s about loss, defeat, losing your mind. But it’s also about hope. Hope that someone will be there to guide you home” – Solitude Within

We have to have hope together in these times. Good message! Cool band!

Last up we have some new Deranged. The video is the heaviest featured today and has some slaughterhouse imagery and a very dark general vibe paired with excellent death riffs and hoarse vocals. If you like this style you will come away feeling on edge and adrenalized in a scowling haze of world darkness energy. I guess that is not so uplifting but hey we all need to vent our anger right now as well somewhere. Stay strong, everyone!

Paralandra release new “Love Will Win” video

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 8:03 AM (PST)

Springfield, MO Hard rock road tested melodic sensations Paralandra are a best kept not-so secret band in the genre who could appeal with ease to Delain, Godsmack and Halestorm fans. The group have a solid work ethic and are back with a timely new video -filmed by Adrienne Beacco- for their new song “Love Will Win.” Big vocals and a lot of guitar shred in this one over in charge rock grooves that mean business. I like the lyric where I think Casandra Carson is saying ,“when the lie is so sweet you’ll follow your fiction.” Hope I got that right!

Anyhow, give the video some love below and hopefully it gets your mind off of the stressful virus for a moment. Sending hope and a raised fist out to everyone reading this.

Bad Wolves advocate for recovery with new music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 4:10 PM (PST)

Los Angeles metallers Bad Wolves released a video earlier this week for their song “Sober.” “Sober” comes off the band’s 2019 effort N.A.T.I.O.N. “Sober” also is featured on the film Sno Babies from Better Noise Films, and the music video for the song features footage from the film.

“This song was a unique opportunity to talk about addiction not only from the perspective of the addict but also from the perspective of their loved ones,” says lead singer Tommy Vext. “The message is very different from traditional songs that seem to always perpetuate a mentality of self-victimization which is exactly the kind of misguided thinking that perpetuates the mental obsessive side of alcoholism and addiction. In the end the moral of the story is about holding on to not giving up on ourselves or the people who are trying – who are really, really trying to make and better themselves.”

The Black Dahlia Murder release “Child of Night” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 1:08 PM (PST)

Michigan metallers The Black Dahlia Murder have released a video for their song “Child of Night.”

This video comes out ahead of the release of the band’s latest album Verminous due out on April 17 via Metal Blade Records.

The video was produced by Vesa Ranta & Kaira Films.

“I think this is the biggest evolutionary leap we’ve ever taken from one album to the next. We stoked the creative fires with 2017’s ‘Nightbringers‘ and it’s gone much further now in ‘Verminous‘,” states vocalist Trevor Strnad. “It’s a very colorful, moody, and charismatic album that experiments with new sounds and ideas without losing the cutthroat Black Dahlia edge. There is a lot of minutiae to digest. Plenty of delicious little Easter eggs woven into the fabric of each song. Each one is a living, breathing entity that will stand on its own as some of the best music this band has ever created.”

Check out the video for “Child of Night” And The Black Dahlia Murder tour dates here.

Florida death dealers Nekroi Theoi released Dead Gods, one of the most individual visions in current death metal/core cross pollination , in 2019. It took some cool chances and established the band as real up and coming true believers to watch. Now you can see a new video from the group for the intense and issue focused “Simony of Hollow Christs”.

Of the track, vocalist, JJ Polacheck commented:

“Simony of Hollow Christs is, like much of Dead Gods a deeply personal take on a widespread issue. Growing up as a pastor’s kid, deeply embedded within the western protestant church in all its denominations, I witnessed firsthand the many doubleminded pathologies of the leadership and infrastructure. Great efforts were taken to give reverence to the scripture, while many people beneath the leadership were exploited. This came to a head when my father spoke out against a Baptist youth leader in training who was preying on a young girl in my youth group, and my father was promptly fired and the issue swept under the rug while the predator remained in the church.

“This would be my first moment of disillusionment with Christianity, and it left a great mark on my psyche. I learned that even in what I perceived to be the purest of institutions, there is a focus on optics over ethics. This is not the exception, this is the functional norm. Simony of Hollow Christs is a naked and honest appraisal of this from the perspective of a True Believer, rationalizing any and all horrors for the sake of following scripture as closely as possible. This mentality is real, and vastly pervasive throughout the entirety of Christian culture. Yes, even your modern, tech savvy church with a coffee shop.”

Upcoming NEKROÍ THEOÍ dates:
3/19 New Port Richey, FL @ The Verona
3/20 Lake Worth, FL @ Propaganda
3/21 Orlando, FL @ Henao Contemporary Center
3/22 Tampa, FL @ American Legion

Fight The Fight release video for “Triggerfinger”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at 10:30 AM (PST)

Norwegian metallers Fight The Fight have released a video for their latest single “Triggerfinger.”

“Triggerfinger” is off the band’s upcoming album Deliverance due out on September 18 via Blacklight Media Records/Indie Recordings.

The video and the sound remind me of Nonpoint. The band says of the song, “The song is about being at war with yourself, the mind and the alter ego. Everything gets out of control or maybe it all falls in part? It’s up to you how you see it.”

The band says of the themes of the album: “You can say that in many ways writing this album has been a path to set free our individual alter egos. These are all coming out in the lyrics during the album. It is not about cleansing but realizing. Always be true to yourself and everyone around you. Sometimes you have to let that beast out and here it is, a beast of an album!”

If you want to delve into some richly textural and emotional doom to start your week off with a thrilling metallic plunge, may we suggest Greek masters On Thorns I Lay and their compelling new single “Erynies”? Their newest album Threnos (Pre-order options HERE is out February 21st from Lifeforce Records. This is an important release from the band and deserves a big push across the world.

Legend and all around great guy Dan Swanö, who was also responsible for the mix and mastering of Threnos, comments: “A part of my wishes it will flop mercilessly, so I can buy all the riffs and release it under my own name…ha, ha!!”
