Before Their Eyes release Craig Owens produced “Midwest Modesty”

Before Their Eyes‘ highly anticipated 5th studio album, Midwest Modesty,is out today via InVogue Records. The LP was produced by Craig Owens and engineered by Nick Ingram.

There’s some cool and inventive melodic guitar and bass work over snappy drums that reminds me at times of The Sleeping, great screams and a more commercial but not obnoxious production. The band sound fired up and committed to every song which means that before you know it you’ve listened to the whole thing. Great vocal performance as well. RIYL  Pierce The Veil, Chiodos, Circa Survive, Haste The Day.

 

Stream the LP in entirety here.

 

“Streetcleaner” returns to vinyl.

Available in two color options from the Earache Webstore.

These days it is harder to find original things. Most art and music has nostalgia so embedded in it that we recognize new songs with a familiarity that makes them more easy to market. That’s not always bad. American Horror Story: Hotel is a lot of fun, for example. Gaga is a hoot and even if every other scene recalls The ShiningThe Lost BoysSe7en or Devil In The White City‘s murder hotel, there is plenty of genre tribute, glam and gore.

That said, in life we only have so much time. I’m drawn the most to bands that sound unique, be it a human voice that is distinctive or something that doesn’t need signifiers because- like the Ramones, Motorhead or our main subject Godflesh, it can’t be fully replicated.

Streetcleaner is a template that turned the underground on its collective ear. Like Neubauten’s Kollaps, it was just such a huge game changer for possibilities, one of those rare records that becomes a landmark. The closest any other act has really come to Godflesh sonically might be recent Author & Punisher release Melk En Honing, to my ears – though they have many disciples. Still, Streetcleaner remains pretty untouchable. Even Godflesh themselves, who have many incredible releases to their credit, have rarely sounded as intense as during fan favorite “Like Rats”. The kick heavy punch of “Christbait Rising”, the harsh mantra of “Locust Furnace” or the rolling groove of underrated bonus track “Dead Head” soundtracked the cold alienation of many of the underground’s truest disciples at their most solitary.

Exumer announce “The Raging Tides”, tracklisting and art

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at 9:23 PM (PST)

exumer-theragingtides

German thrash metallers Exumer have announced The Raging Tides as their upcoming fourth full-length, set to be released January 29th via Metal Blade Records! To hear the first single – the album’s title track – and to pre-order the record in various formats, head over to:http://www.metalblade.com/exumer

Recorded with producer/engineer Waldemar Soychta at Waldstreet Sound in Dortmund, Germany, The Raging Tides is a deliberate and violent thrash attack that stays true to the band’s 30 year legacy. Conceptually and lyrically, vocalist Mem V. Stein has based the bulk of the record around human suffering – specifically “caused by torture or other means for political, religious, or personal gain for the individuals/organizations who inflict the pain,” Stein asserts. Inspired by a wide range of books and articles, the title of the album itself, according to Stein, “represents the ebb and flow of human misery and despair around the globe.”

See below for The Raging Tides‘ track-listing, with more news coming soon!

Rush’s Geddy Lee says he would consider making another solo album

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 7:42 AM (PST)

geddy leeRush bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee released only one solo album 15 years ago, but in a recent interview with the A.V. Club, he said that he would “definitely” consider making another solo album in the future. On what it was like writing an album without his longtime Rush bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, Geddy states:

“That was a real interesting period for me. It was tough, because I had planned to do some jamming with my dear friend Ben Mink, who is an amazing musician, producer, and songwriter in his own right, and a violinist and guitarist. Because we had been friends for so long, and we had never actually made a record together aside from him playing on the song ‘Losing It’ from our ‘Signals’ album, we had always planned that some time when the band was on a break, we would just get together and start writing together and see what happened. We were planning to do that, and suddenly tragedy struck Neil’s life. His daughter was taken from him in a car accident, and everything got really weird and it was just a horrible period. So I decided after a few months this idea of working with Ben might be a real tonic for me, because I didn’t know really whether there would ever be another Rush album. I had no idea; it was not something we were focused on, and people get through tragedies in different ways. I was kind of going crazy and needed something to focus on, so this project that was sort of in the back of my mind with Ben suddenly became critical so we started getting together in my home studio in Toronto and I would go to his place in Vancouver and over a series of months we gathered a whole bunch of material together and then we decided to go for it and make the record.”

Geddy’s only solo album My Favorite Headache was released way back in 2000. As for Rush, they haven’t released any new material since the release of their latest album Clockwork Angels, which was released in 2012, but they’ve toured on and off since then.

Cloak of Altering’s latest “Manifestation” is out today.

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 9:57 PM (PST)

eb5dd7b5-528d-4062-bc05-765674272084

Manifestation, the nightmarish new album from CLOAK OF ALTERING, is the fourth full-length from the band, which is one of the Doppelganger personalities of Gnaw Their Tongues founder, Maurice de Jong, a.k.a. Mories. The record is out today.

Cross the threshold of sanity and enter the demented realms of CLOAK OF ALTERING’s Manifestation exclusively at The Quietus RIGHT HERE.

The Dutch black/industrial/noise metal architect Mories, known throughout the underground realms for his works with Gnaw Their Tongues, Seirom, Aderlating, Mors Sonat, De Magia Veterum, among others, returns with the follow-up to the maniacal 2014 CLOAK OF ALTERING album Plague Beasts. The warped Manifestation unleashes yet another brain-scrambling blast of mutated symphonic black metal, nightmarish breakcore madness, and hellish electronics fused together into a sweat-soaked, chrome-plated nightmare.

Compared to previous works, the seven-song Manifestation is a slightly less chaotic monstrosity, giving these blackened maelstroms added room to breathe, but the cumulative assault of CLOAK OF ALTERING’s sound on the band’s fourth album continues to thoroughly scorch the listener. The sound is still rooted in a bizarre confluence of majestic synth-drenched black metal, skewed industrial heaviness, and fractured Planet Mu-esque electronic music, seemingly as informed by the hallucinatory throes of early Coil and the violent breakcore of Bong-Ra and Venetian Snares as it is by classic Nordic black metal. Strange contrapuntal riffs weave drunkenly amid crackling electronic glitch and eerie drones. The vocals here often take form here as a vile, guttural robotic croak, a sickeningly putrid android presence that is layered among the rest of the distant shrieks, anguished screams and chilling, garbled cries that all feel as if they are trying to escape the bowels of some nightmarish AI system.

Crucial Blast will issue Manifestation on CD and digital platforms today, December 4th. Purchase at the label’s main website HERE and via Bandcamp HERE.
