Nile release “What Should Not Be Unearthed” Track Listing

Nile-what-should-not-be-unearthed

South Carolina death metal band Nile have released the track listing for their upcoming album What Should Not Be Unearthed.

The album will come out on August 28 via Nuclear Blast.

Vocalist Karl Sanders had this to say:

“The goal for the new record was sheer epic brutality. The focus this time around is on brutal heavy metal riffing and songwriting; kind of like of an ‘Annihilation Of The Wicked’ approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. So we believe that we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. Although ‘Unearthed’ is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people have come to expect from us over the years, it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around.”

Album Review: Veil Of Maya – “Matriarch”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 9:35 AM (PST)

Veil-of-Maya-Matriarch-artwork-600x600

Matriarch is certainly a big statement for Veil Of Maya. New singer. Clean vocals. The amazing guitar-tistry of Mark Okubo. Like most of their records, there are moments of sheer brilliance that make it worth purchasing. Other sections however are kind of aimless or more textural than servicing the “song”. I remember Okubo once saying he didn’t like Jane’s Addiction in an interview, which bummed me out cuz they feature such great guitar skills but also can always deliver a solid song as well. Sometimes less is more.
Then again, with Veil of Maya you have room for many layers or approaches under one band name, parting the veils to keep searching for what it all means.

Without a doubt Veil seem re-energized, though I’d really rather hear them with less compressed sounding production. It’s just a tad too slick and not enough bass, though the guitar tones at times get fuckin’ glorious on the proggier, walky Okubo lines.

Vocals in Veil were always the weakest part. It happens a lot in newer tech or proggy or metalcore bands, vocals secondary to the complexity of arrangements in both depth and scope. Pop culture references abound in some of these bands or names from TV shows. Within The Ruins did a great job on their last record but it wasn’t so blatant. Though serviceable, Matriarch aims to focus on female power symobls and matriarchs in society but they should’ve pointed to Malala instead of, I dunno, fake movie and show characters.
Don’t get me wrong. These guys often really slay at times.

Death metal’s speed obsessed sons of darkness Hate Eternal don’t ever fuck around in their quest to represent metal to the fullest. Their newest song is a real scorcher, one of the more listenable (some people can’t take this band’s intensity) songs they’ve done yet still truly punishing. Love these dudes. There are some riffs in here you will want embedded into your face/skull. The track titled “The Stygian Deep”, is streaming now at Stereogum.

Regarding the new track, HATE ETERNAL founder Erik Rutan comments: “”The Stygian Deep” has a very compelling and intriguing energy to it, dynamic and expanded yet aggressively rooted in the tradition of Hate Eternal. A very black mysterious journey that develops through many passages as you listen.  A musical landscape of much depth and darkness…”

Infernus  will be released worldwide by Season of Mist on August 21. Pre-orders for the album across multiple CD and LP bundles are available at the Season of Mist E-Shop. HATE ETERNAL previously released the first track from ‘Infernus’, “Pathogenic Apathy”, here.

New album Infernus is sure to be a thrill ride if other tracks are half this good and I’m loving the snare attack. Between this, Gutter Instinct and the mindfuck of the recent Alkaloid record, this is an awesome death metal year even if this is only a “halftime report”.

“I’m hoping as a culture we can be better than to stoop to rap feuds. It’s all of us against idiots like the Westboro Baptist Church. Let’s not let the tiny difference between Grind and Thrash get in the way of that.” – Jason Lekberg (Vocals)

IKILLYA are a band really on point with their press kit, drive and pro but genuine and simultaneously self-invested but scene supportive methods. Talented vocalist and industry navigator Jason Lekberg has some serious knowledge he drops in this interview and I’d recommend all metal fans, bands or industry types read and heed his words in regards to goals, artist development and persistence BELOW.

EP Review: Castrator – “No Victim”

Posted by Joan on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 2:26 PM (PST)

castrator-no-victim

“Tightly she holds the blade
With which the rapist will be raped .
Castration Of the rapist! Emasculation.”

Talk about a reply to any number of songs from Cannibal Corpse’s discography! Having discovered these ladies last year, right before their demo was released, I was ecstatic to finally hear Castrator‘s 4-track EP released in early May under the Horror Pain Gore Death Productions label. These five ladies hail from all over the map (Sweden, Colombia & Norway to name a few countries), marking this group as both ethnically diverse and fem-tastic! Shrouded in a bit of mystery, the ladies are credited as M.S. (vocals), M. Akesson (rhythm guitar), R. M. (bass), C. Perez (drums) and P. Serrano (lead and vocals). You might already be familiar with many of the ladies from their other bands, which with time, I’m sure you’ll all figure out.

It’s sort of a supergroup in the making. Castrator’s EP has brushed off the dust to reinvigorate traditional death metal, and, in fact, does so with a healthy dose of feminism. And for you males out there who shy away from the f-word – put simply, it’s about leveling the field.

The Juliet Massacre stream ‘Human Abuse’ album in entirety

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at 4:23 PM (PST)

the-juliet-massacre

Italian slammers The Juliet Massacre are currently streaming their forthcoming album Human Abuse in its entirety.

Vocalist Antomega had this to say about the album:

“Its long gestation period has meant that the successor to Pray for an Afterlife appears to be faster, more brutal, more intense, but also deeper. We have written about how much the mankind likes to abuse and destroy everything, even itself, and how all this is leading us to an inevitable collapse. These are all tangible things that each of us savor every day and against which ordinary people can do little or nothing. Human Abuse can be considered as an anthem to what mankind should never be. We are totally convinced that this new work will satisfy all fans of the genre and, in some way, will satisfy even the most discerning ears. We are so excited to feel the response from all the metalheads.”

Human Abuse is due out next week.

Head on over to MetalUnderground to stream Human Abuse in its entirety.
