Portland, Oregon metal noise makers Hair Puller are preparing to release their debut full length album Old Friend on November 16. The album will be released on vinyl via Nadine Records and on cassette via Accident Prone Records.

The band returned to the studio in October 2017, recording drums at Stop / Start with friend and scene-mate Robert Comitz of Marriage + Cancer, and recording the rest themselves over the next several months.

Yatra to release ‘Death Ritual’ on January 4 via Grimoire Records

Maryland doom metallers Yatra are preparing to release their debut full-length album Death Ritual via Grimoire Records in early January 2019.

Frontman Dana Helmuth had this to say about the album:

“We had moved back to the country, into a small cottage in the woods, with no plumbing for the first three months we were there. We had an outhouse and outdoor shower. It was primitive, and it was during that time that I started writing all the material for Death Ritual. The solitude and the darkness of the night put me in a space of prolific writing and I wrote all eight songs in a month. We rehearsed three times a week and immediately started playing live shows regularly in Baltimore and New York City. We were able to channel that same darkness in the writing, also into our live shows, and the positive response was tremendous and really pushed us harder on our journey.”

Yatra’s full-length debut, Death Ritual was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Grimoire Records’ Noel Mueller in August of 2018. The artwork features four mixed-media pieces by Aki Pitkänen, layout by Mueller, and the hand-drawn logotype by Dana Helmuth.

Death Ritual Track Listing:
1. Hour Of The Dragon
2. Black Moon
3. Sacred Flower
4. Snakes In The Temple
5. Smoke Is Rising
6. Four Directions
7. Mighty Arrows
8. Sailing On
YATRA:
Dana Helmuth – guitars/vocals
Maria Geisbert – bass
Mike Tull – drums

Released one year after the series’ origination on Samhain 2017, GRIDFAILURE issues When The Lights Go Out Vol. II. As with its predecessor, which focused on supernatural forces, dimensional vortex transitions, cadavers, paranoia, stalkers, and unexplained phenomena, the second volume expands further into such topics, with a slightly more spiritual undertone. An atmospheric album created for the harvest season , this album transitions the auras of nocturnal nature, apparitional screams, and supreme paranoia, into a place where no otherworldly forces will save you, the listener.

Recorded and created by GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner, who provides vocals, keyboards, synth, guitars, bass, percussion, and more, When The Lights Go Out Vol. II. is strewn with guest contributions, including acoustic guitar and keyboards by Liz Ciavarella-Brenner, vocals from Faith Ciavarella, traveling preacher organ from Benjamin Levitt, vocals from Morgan Evans, recordings from David Rodgers, and more, spiraled into a vaporous envelopment of end-time dirge.

Harvest season only begins now. The lights go out again.

Atreyu’s new album drops this weekend

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 8:37 PM (PST)

Just a reminder that the new one In Our Wake from blood sucking metalcore bruisers Atreyu hits streets October 12th and it is a winner. Here is the title track “In Our Wake” in case ya missed it. Much higher production value video than the early days, lol. Brandon still grand slams those catchy cleans to the moon. We stan. Like Thrice, it is good they have embraced their grandest ambitions because the songs aren’t held back and the emotion can come through without being self-conscious.

West Coast doom band UN have released their latest monument to moody brilliance, sophomore record Sentiment, on Translation Loss. While each track is over the ten minute mark as seems kinda hip these days, in the case of UN it is warranted and allows the full, glorious and dark sprawling landscape of each composition to be revealed like a vast panoramic slowly scrolling by. These guys really upped their game as well, a keener sense of melody infused into these potent prayers to both calm contemplation AND bleeding ears than ever before. Fret not that the heavy qualities have diminished in any way, but there is an even more clear sense of emotional impact and dynamics as the sounds within, particularly on one of the best songs I have heard all year “Pools of Reflection” , are completely stirring.

“While so many of our contemporaries choose to focus purely on the grim aspects of mortality, Sentiment is meant to serve as a token of gratitude in spite of the struggles of daily life”, guitarist/vocalist Monte McCleery comments. “It is a deeply personal and intimate thing to share your art with the world, and we hope that everyone who holds this album or hears these songs feels like it was written specifically for them.”

In support of “Sentiment”, UN will hit the road on November 3rd. The tour will take the band across the United States for 20 days starting in Seattle, WA and end in Boise, ID. The band will tour alongside Colorado blackened sludge duo, Oryx (No, if you are nearsighted like me that doesn’t say Onyx-sadly). In New Orleans,  UN will join forces with Georgia’s black death powerhouse, Withered for select dates.  Tour dates can be found below.

Vancouver sludge metallers Erosion have premiered their newest song “Black Waves” via Metal Injection.

“Black Waves” comes from the band’s forthcoming album Maximum Suffering which is due out October 19 via Hydra Head.

Maximum Suffering is Erosion’s first full-length album and first release since 2013’s Kill Us All cassette EP. Self-described as a “cathartic audio expulsion of our collective contempt for humanity,” Maximum Suffering combines the reductionist brutalism of early grind outfits, the blazing tempos of classic d-beat hardcore, and the warped stomp-and-crush riffage of modern death metal’s most nefarious troglodytes.

You can also check out the band’s song “Human Error” over at Revolver.

Pre-order Maximum Suffering via Erosion’s Bandcamp.

Erosion, Maximum Suffering Track Listing:
1. Maximum Suffering
2. Everything is F***ed

7. Deep In Hell
8. We Have Failed Us
9. Scorched Earth

Internal Bleeding announce new album ‘Corrupting Influence’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 7:38 AM (PST)

New York death metallers Internal Bleeding have announced that their forthcoming album Corrupting Influence will be released on October 19 via Unique Leader Records.

Founding guitarist Chris Pervelis commented, “Corrupting Influence is filled with all of the gut twisting heaviness and groove you’d expect from us, but there’s also plenty of unexpected twists that take a listener to places we’ve never gone before. Additionally, the production is right where it should be — heavy as f*ck, organic and live sounding.”

Guitarist Chris McCarthy added, “I grew up as a fan of IB, so I put everything in my ability to make this the sickest IB album ever.”

The album was produced by the band alongside Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studios (Suffocation, Dehumanized) in Ronkonkoma, Ny, engineered by Cincotta, and features artwork by guitarist Chris Pervelis.

In support of Corrupting Influence the band will be going on tour in the fall as part of the Bloodletting North America Tour XII along side Decrepit Birth, Arsis, Pyrexia, Angelmaker, and Within Destruction.

Cast The Stone prepare to release ‘Empyrean Atrophy’ EP

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, June 4, 2018 at 2:21 AM (PST)

St. Louis metallers Cast The Stone are preparing to release their latest EP Empyrean Atrophy.

Empyrean Atrophy will be released on August 31 via Agonia Records.

Cast The Stone is Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour), Derek Engemann (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Scour), Jesse Schobel (Legend, ex-Scour) and vocalist Andy Huskey.

The cover art for Empyrean Atrophy was done by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Designs (Primordial, Kreator, Napalm Death).

Guitarist Mark Kloeppel commented:

“The band’s sound is a testament to an enduring spirit thats driven us to return to our most organic influences, merge them together, incorporate disparate elements, and forge our own sound. Each person has a distinct sound unto themselves, so it’s really cool how smooth and cohesive this stuff comes across. You can immediately hear how different this is from the other things we’ve been involved in, yet it’s still very true to our individual styles. Our bassist Derek progressively weaves my guitars and Jesse’s uber-creative drumming style together in a way that only he can. This is all crowned off by Andy Huskey’s crazy death metal vocals which are… well, just listen.”

The first single for Empyrean Atrophy is due June 7.

Check out the tracklist for Empyrean Atrophy here.
