Exhumed reveal details for new album “Death Revenge”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 7:22 PM (PST)

I friggin’ love Exhumed, by far my favorite gore grind/at times death obsessed political extreme metal band (would be close tie with Brutal Truth but they broke up and were not gore). Exhumeds 6th full-length arrives soon and they are doing their first concept album based on true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and (according to the press release): tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery.

I was a big fan of Sarke’s Bogefod (which deserved WAY better reviews from most of the metal community) and am ready for another band to tackle a concept album about some unhappy endings. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), Death Revenge will surely be extreme and put Matt Harvey in serious contention for work dog of the bloody apocalypse between this, Expulsion and Gruesome!

Frontman Matt Harvey commented:

“We’re very excited to see this record come out. It’s been a long time since we’ve fucked up your stereos! I think this record has a darker vibe than the last two, with a pretty gnarly tale of grave-robbery, dissection, murder and all sorts of general skullduggery. We dig it and we hope you filthy animals will too.”

Listen to the new song “Defenders of the Grave” via YouTube HERE and Bandcamp plus all streaming services AT THIS LOCATION.

Death Revenge is set for release on October 13th on CD/LP/DLX LP&CASS/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital order are available via Relapse.com HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Rotten Sound release “Thrashmonger” video

While the rock and metal world reeled last week from the death of the iconic Chris Cornell, thankfully this week is starting off with a reminder that metal, punk and rock will not only never die but has many disciples still here to help carry the torch forward. From UFOMAMMUT’s clobbering new “Warsheep”, to Davey Suicide’s gutter glammy “No Angel”  to Silverstein’s screamo charged “Retrograde”, let’s celebrate that rock still comes in many styles. That said, if you want to kick off your week hard may we recommend you take a big fat Finnish kick in the crotch from grindcore heroes Rotten Sound this Monday. “Thrashmonger” is here and gone in just over a minute but will open your eyes like Uma getting some of that Pulp Fiction adrenaline.

Check it out below and keep the faith.

Well, Monday is officially saved, kinda. If you are like me (probably not) and were super bummed out by the mostly boring rotting cock tease of a Walking Dead finale and then woke up to hate tweets from Chris Brown SUPPORTERS just because you suggested that a douchebag who beats women and mocks other women for suicide attempts might not deserve an iHeartRadio award, as well as an offended tweet from fucking necro Colonel Sanders and KFC (I shit you not) saying they don’t use mutant chickens anymore …well, let’s just say that I was pleased as punch to see some great Cult Leader news and remember that I own a copy of Useless Animal. It’s like a reset button for cultural moronic malaise.

Anyway, the killer band are hitting Europe with some great bands in tow including Plebeian Grandstand who I am super into. I will not be seeing this tour but the mere existence of it across the pond gives me hope that all hope is not lost.

Album Review: Agoraphobic Nosebleed – “Arc EP”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, January 4, 2016 at 9:17 AM (PST)

85b9270d-8c90-4c9c-8f5b-3ad445eff116

Agoraphobic Nosebleed somehow went from being an insider’s dream concept to a full fledged legacy band (in certain circles). The closest thing we still have left to anything as vitriol fueled as Brutal Truth, yet with the industrialized power/edge of Pig Destroyer/and the relevance of Drugs of Faith to boot.

The ARC EP finds the band in top form, a sleaz-i-fied riff fest two minutes into “Not A Daughter” the first and foremost real display of a burlier and at times pretty much southern rock sound for the band. You read that right. There are some real barn burner’s thrown in amidst the slog.

The EP- harsh vocals from Kat on full blast – is a true headbanger’s oasis of skull crunching pit worthy riffs that can appeal to fans of stoner, grind, fringe hardcore and even slow death metal at times. It is awesome the band continue to fearlessly evolve, just as Black Flag once did, for example. That’s one surefire way to stay relevant, unless you make a Cold Lake (which I secretly like).

Even the record art is more of a fine art mutation than some of the shockier stuff at bedbathsaltsandbeyond.spreadshirt.com.

“Not A Daughter” ends with a horn thrower of a riff worthy of Alabama Thunderpussy’s much missed Staring At The Divine-era, albeit a lot more evil. It’ll remind you Richard lives in Virginia (I think he still does, at least).

Anyway, this is the sickest fuckin’ band and you know it (or oughta). They make me want to barf out of my eyes. It’s pure bottled charge and pay off after payoff. “Deathbed” is a grungier dirge than the majority of recent melvins and us ugly as the S/T Eyehategod stuff, complete with low male death vocals and synthetic drum poundage. “Gnaw” has some stuff so knuckle dragging in it that it almost sounds like Xibalba was an industrial crust band. Fuck yeah!!!

I wish this record was more than three gloriously hellbent songs and was at least six. It’s a monster anyway and nonetheless will exhaust you with awesome adrenaline rush wall of metal power. But in a flaming heap afterwards you nonetheless want more material, a liberal bloodlusting for good art that will thaw any frozen corpse’s heart in a guitarbang of volume, aesthetic and road.

Pre-order HERE. Right now.

Venomous Concept stream new song “Rise”

I’ve always thought Venomous Concept was a cool…concept? No, they are actually cool in reality as well. And quite venomous.

Anything Kevin Sharp (ex-Brutal Truth) is part of is always completely unhinged. I maintain that he has the single fiercest howling bellow ape scream in metal history. Go listen to the Damaged album Purified In Pain he was on, fuck!!! While it is a drag Buzzo from Melvins hasn’t been in the group for awhile, VC still have Napalm Death alumni and more. They aint skimpin’ in the awesome department.

Anyhow, the band have silly ass new album art and  are streaming a new track from their forthcoming new album, ‘Kick Me Silly; VC 3’. The track, titled “Rise”, is streaming now with Revolver Magazine.

Regarding the new track, vocalist Kevin Sharp comments: “I like the contrast in guitars here. A decent mix of melodic bite…like if a shoegazer had more nut, less mustache.”

‘Kick Me Silly; VC3’ will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on January 8. The album is available for pre-order across several CD, ltd. LP and ltd. cassette formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop. 

Agoraphobic Nosebleed return with “Arc” EP in 2016

I remember discovering Agoraphobic Nosebleed‘s Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope with my drummer friend Zac Shaw with a sense of stoned glee and an atom level knowledge that somehow life would never be the same. It was one of my earliest introductions to that level of musical insanity. I grew up on Big Black and Jesus Lizard records but Agoraphobic was another level of “that is intense” all together. For people who love to find bands that make other people say “What the fuck are you listening too?” and run in horror, this is a great place to start.

Since the band got Katherine Katz (ex-Salome), they have gotten somehow even more rad. The Richard Johnson and Scott Hull tag team of madness finds a perfect foil in Katherine’s insane screams. New record ARC thankfully drops almost a year to the day that my father died and I am thanking the grind gods for giving me something really distracting I am bound to enjoy musically during what is surely going to be a week of seriously bad mood swings for me.

It looks like this 3 song EP will focus on the slower side of the band, as it is not that many tracks but clocks in at about twenty plus minutes. Color me stoked as fuck, since sister band Pig Destroyer’s recent Mass & Volume EP was a beast.

Pre Order this fucker HERE right now!

Cattle Decap Flexi Series Entry “Cannibalistic Invasivorism.”

Posted by Metal Riot on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 3:37 PM (PST)

04423e53-4079-47d5-af3b-d3c265d206c9

San Diego deathgrinders, CATTLE DECAPITATION, will make their Decibel Flexi Series debut in the August 2015 issue with previously unreleased track, “Cannibalistic Invasivorism.” The ravaging new hymn – which will not appear on the band’s forthcoming new full-length, The Anthropocene Extinction – is currently available for public ingestion courtesy of MetalSucks.

Expounds frontman Travis Ryan of the tune, “One thing we learned from our last couple albums was that an album’s flow can make or break an album and it’s an often overlooked part of the album-making process. We ended up with a couple songs that got squeezed out of the album’s flow that were naturally then deemed ‘bonus tracks,’ and the track ‘Cannibalistic Invasivorism’ was one of them. It’s a song about doing away with pestiferous, invasive species of life through eating them, similar to the invasivorism movement by culinary artistes who use things like snails, squirrels, etc., or any animal/insect that need their numbers thinned down in any given area or ecosystem to have a positive impact on the region. Of course, in the ‘turning the tables’ nature of CATTLE DECAPITATION, in this song we find the target being the single most invasive species on planet earth: the human being. Enjoy!”

Sample “Cannibalistic Invasivorism,” now streaming at MetalSucks at THIS LOCATION.

 

A limited number of issues which include the flexi are currently available for purchase HERE but hurry!

Napalm Death announce US festival and European tour dates

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 4:39 PM (PST)

Maryland DeathFest 2015

British grindcore godfathers Napalm Death are preparing to be on the road this summer.

Napalm Death are touring to promote their 15 album Apex Predator – Easy Meat.

Bassist Shane Embury had this to say about the upcoming tour:

We had an awesome time down in Australia & New Zealand with our old friends Carcass! A lot of history between us as everyone probably knows and the crowds were very appreciative with most of the shows sold out. And what a great line up, also with Extortion opening…a truly awesome band from Australia. All in all a killer tour and I almost got Bill Steer up onstage for a few of the old songs, but we never quite managed it with all of the crazy traveling and early flights. But one day soon though, I tell you…Cheers!

Check out the Napalm Death tour dates here.

Make sure to check back for details on an upcoming Napalm Death 7″ split EP.
