Album Review: Expulsion – “Nightmare Future”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at 8:41 PM (PST)

Seven songs in fourteen minutes as vomited out by alumni from Exhumed, Lightning Swords Of Death, Intronaut and of course Repulsion? How could you possibly go wrong?!

This Expulsion project seems like the guys just wanted to have a total fucking blast while still showing their utter devotion to extreme grind and thrash. The songs are high speed, take no prisoners bangers that give Iron Reagan or Lock Up a fair fight in the over the top intensity department. Out mid Ju;y via Relapse, this is kind of a must purchase little record – even if they never make another one.

“Total Human Genocide” has more political lyrics from Exhumed’s Matt Harvey (akin to some of the excellent Necrocracy themes). “Altar Of Slaughter” gets more gory with classic Harvey stuff about eye gouging and laughing while sawing someone, etc. Everything is quite metal. All in all you are here for the overall effect than the lyrics on this outing.

Matt Olivo – Guitar, Danny Walker – Drums and Menno Verbaten – Bass do a tremendous job here. The hyper march of “Funeral Bells” or the many distorted and barelling down on you kick ass bass parts from Verbaten add perfect support for the riff-sanity from Olivo that all allows for Harvey to go off with ease. Not much more to say other than that for an idea conceived for fun, this smokes a lot of full time acts out there. But what would you expect from this cast of characters?

Nightmare Future was produced by Matt Olivo, mixed by Toxic Holocaust’s Joel Grind and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Mayhem, Faith No More, Halford). Physical preorders and bundles are available at Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads can be preordered via Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.

SepticFlesh announce “Codex Omega”, premiere single

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 11:43 AM (PST)

Holy shit. How do SepticFlesh always manage to top themselves? From art to musical execution, they truly never leave a stone un-turned. This freaky ass Aliens meets LoTR looking art gave me chills and along with the new Cormorant Diaspora art shows that the best bands care about everything from visual to musical impact.

The Greek legends SF’s new album is called Codex Omega you can hear a completely stunning new symphonic extreme metal masterpiece called “Dante’s Inferno” HERE. It sounds even heavier than some of the most intense stuff they have released in recent years! The drums are absolutely insane.

Available September 1, 2017 in North America on Prosthetic Records, Codex Omega will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a US indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl, and on all digital outlets. Preorders are up now and available at http://smarturl.it/SepticfleshCO.

Interview: Dying Fetus are the wrong ones to fuck with

I was introduced to Dying Fetus through “Homicidal Retribution,” a track off the band’s 2007 release War of Attrition. By the time the line “You are fucking worthless, I don’t give a fuck about you!!” was growled out, I knew I was a fan. Now, ten years later the band returns again with their 8th studio album, which promises to smash faces and beat in skulls.

Ahead of the album’s impending release on June 23 via Relapse Records, I had the chance to talk with Dying Fetus drummer Trey Williams about Wrong One To Fuck With.

Check out the full interview here.

Formative Years: 5 album picks – 3. LAGO’s Cole Jabobsen

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 9:44 PM (PST)

Everyone has records that first got them into rock n roll, metal, rap, smooth jazz or whatever. Formative Years is our new feature delving into the brains of various people in the scene to see what made them choose the realm of music as a focus. Jason from IKILLYA did one HERE and I also kicked it off HERE, and we have more cool artists to come in the future. Really this seed was planted by me interviewing Kayla from Witch Mountain awhile ago about her vocal influences, one of the posts that we sadly lost when we were hacked and lost almost a year of content recently. But in memory of that awesomeness we have made a whole ongoing thing out of influences in general, so thanks Kayla!

Anyhow, this round we have the one and only Mr. Cole Jacobsen of Arizona death metallers Lago. They’ve been one of my very favorite up and coming extreme metal bands ever since I first heard them, just nailing all the right components that makes death metal unkillable.  Peep their recent split with mighty Calm Hatchery HERE (you will fucking thank me later if you aren’t throttled to a pulp).

Check out Cole’s choices for albums that inspired him as a young rager BELOW and stay tuned for big things from this band in the future.

Pennsylvania death metallers Incantation have released a 360-degree video for their song “Rites of The Locust.”

“Rites of The Locust” comes off  the band’s upcoming album Profane Nexus, which is due out on August 11 via Relapse Records.

Incantation Guitarist and Vocalist John McEntee, had this to say regarding the direction of the video:
“With the advent of 360-video visualizer technology, we were able to convey the song’s powerful imagery alongside the intensity of the music. This song is an example of one of the more aggressive songs on the album. We feel it’s the perfect representation of death metal and everything an Incantation fan wants. Rage motherfuckers!”

Fear Those Who Fear Him is the third and hotly coveted new dark metal power emission from the extreme metal warlocks of Vallenfyre. This song is not about any hobnobbery with spirits and sprites, though the band do have serious British mojo. No, this crusher deals hard in real world problems facing us right now.

Guitarist/vocalist Greg Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) comments:
Nihilist is about those who take their ridiculous holy book seriously and carry it out to the letter. In light of recent events it is dedicated to the innocent victims of the Manchester attack.

Scheduled for worldwide release via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on June 2, 2017, Fear Those Who Fear Him is an unforgiving musical mixture of death, doom, grind, and crust offering 12 ferocious new tracks. The album is available for pre-order on CD, LP and digital download at http://smarturl.it/VallenfyreFTWFH

Stream Oceano’s best album yet “Revelation” in full

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 5:43 AM (PST)

Oceano’s unforgiving latest album Revelation  will not sway you if the band’s low end heavy brutal death core with utterly guttural vocals and random technical and rhythmic flourishes is too much for you. Personally, I think this new record is their finest yet and shows the band adding more consistent heft to past albums that had moments but often some filler tracks as well. Decide for yourself below and slam your neighbors today.

Entrails premiere latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:56 PM (PST)

Swedish death metallers Entrails have released their latest single “Serial Murder (Death Squad)” off of their upcoming album World Inferno which is due out on June 16  via Metal Blade Records.

Entrails guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist comments:

“It’s about time to unleash our next beast called ‘Serial Murder (Death Squad)’ – that means you should roll up your sleeves, loosen up your ponytail and get in the mood with a proper beer and prepare yourself for a trip among serial murders. The Death Squad awaits you!”

Dan Swano, who mixed and mastered the record had this to say:

“I don’t know if I had said this before, but I say it again. Every time I start thinking about putting together some new SweDeath project, Entrails show up at my doorstep with a new album to mix, and every time I think ‘Fuck!! – What’s the point in making my own project when this is so fucking good, and exactly what I wanted to do…’ And if I felt there were some details to improve upon from our previous work together, they fix that and then some, and return with an album even stronger than the previous one. What the fuck is going on in Linneryd!? Is Jimmy cloning death metal warriors in some barn over there or what!? To sum it up. Yet another amazing slab of SweDeath coming your way from Entrails! Beyond. Blown. Away!”

Head over to InvisibleOranges.com to hear “Serial Murder (Death Squad).”

Head over to Metal Blade to hear “The Soul Collector.”

Suffocation “Return To The Abyss”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, May 12, 2017 at 5:39 AM (PST)

Ok, so this new Suffocation song “Return To The Abyss” is a total monster. That’s my welcome just desserts for saying yesterday I was feeling more pumped for the new Pathology. Really feeling this song “Return To The Abyss” more than the first single “Your Last Breaths”, which was good but…this one is damn near flawless death metal. Still not super crazy about the snare sound but, we will let that go. Def probably going to buy this record when it comes out.

Add to My Radar   Add to My Radar

When considering a post mid point 00’s death metal band, Pathology are beyond a doubt one of the strongest and sickest death metal bands to carve out quite a formidable recorded legacy. The band has churned a remarkable nine albums out since 2006, including their well regarded trio of Victory blood chuggers (2011’s Awaken to the Suffering being a personal game changer). This band along with Rivers Of Nihil and certain elements of better Job For A Cowboy and Whitechapel made me feel like maybe some of the newer bands could actually cut it for the long haul in a post NWOAHM time when bands were all pretty short lived as record sales slumped and people adjusted to new models. So to see a few non metalcore bands go harder in the death influences and really keep cranking out material was dope.

Anyway, Pathology are bursting to arrive back with their new self titled record, by all accounts. Check out a full report and choke down a NEW slice of the gurgly vocal, slam worthy gorge metal you love HERE. I wonder what would happen if Takeru Kobayashi had just eaten a gazillion hot dogs and Abbath or Dagon croaked in one ear while the Pathology dude Matti Way satan burped in the other. Would Kobayashi’s iron stomach be psyched out into puking through the subliminal sweet nothings and  power of suggestion of so much croakage and gore? I know this is fucked up to say but I am kinda more stoked for this Pathology than the new Suffocation, no dis to those dudes. Just how it is.
