The Interbeing release new single “Deceptive Signal”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:49 PM (PST)

Danish metallers The Interbeing have released their latest single “Deceptive Signal.”

The song comes off the band’s forthcoming album Among the Amorphous which is due out June 23 via Long Branch Records.

Singer Dara Corcoran on “Deceptive Signal”:
“Deceptive Signal is the 2nd track on our coming concept album about The Interbeing’s struggle with his creators. In this song The Interbeing hears a signal and is drawn to it but it turns out to be a trap made by his creators. To realize the visual storyline we contacted the gifted Jeb Hardwick and flew him in to Copenhagen to shoot the ambitious video. The countless hours playing in a green screen studio and postproduction really paid off. Jeb did an amazing job creating this other dimension with us and The Interbeing in it.”

Deep Cuts: Marilyn Manson

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 6:02 PM (PST)

 

I’d bet cash that many of the people who are appalled that Antifa and Berkeley students wanted to protest Anne Coulter and Milo Nambla-palooza have someone in their family who prob was very up in arms when Marilyn Manson was touring Antichrist Superstar. And yes I know about the Nambla/Antifa story, which certainly is not the rule for every anti fascist. Unless you fucking believe #pizzagate, where every Democrat is a pedophile if they ordered pizza once. In which case I don’t know what to say other than… God speed. If you need me I’ll be over here trying to figure out the best way to remove my own rib so I can…nevermind.

See which MM songs made our Deep Cuts list out of many to choose from…BELOW.

Show Review: Junius, InAeona, Clover at BSP Kingston

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 4:48 PM (PST)

One of the best shows I have seen in awhile made it worth it to trek out on a kind of gloomy Thursday night to the Hudson Valley, NY’s best indie concert venue BSP Kingston (I also am partial to Bearsville and The Chance for mostly other genres). There was a solid, if infrequent, metal booking of three bands who I really enjoy, Kingston’s own sludgy grimers Clover, expansive Boston space trio InAeona and the proggy mathic doom of Junius.

Of the three, I had been a fan of all of them for awhile (especially InAeona who are in my top ten fave bands in the world right now), but I’d only had the fortune of raging to Clover before. I was a bit fried from a long concert the night before in Albany, but am so glad I soldiered out to this smaller town show.

Album Review: Aborym – “Shifting.negative”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, March 27, 2017 at 10:48 AM (PST)

Aborym always do something interesting, even if they will never be the type of project that will please everyone. That’s certainly never been the point of the band. That said, some people will never get over that they don’t sound like Fire Walk With Us anymore, an admittedly exceptional moment for the group. Still, Fabban has never been content to let the band become a repetitive copy of itself. Anyone with ears should try and trust that while the direction may shift, it will always be somewhat negative (haha, see what I did there?).

Dirty was more of a nihilistic party record, as shock rock as they have been in some ways. Shifting.negative has an all new line up backing Fabban, a very 90’s industrial type record that has some of the projects most dense textural layering yet. There is a lot to unpack here but the listener will find so much new ground with every listen. It is both organic and very electronic, a garden for the ears.

This is Aborym’s best SOUNDING record by far. Engineered by Emiliano Natali  and Luciano Lamanna,  mixed and mastered by Grammy-award winning Marc Urselli with post-production work from Guido Elmi, this album has some serious juice. Fabban has always had an amazing ear himself and has also gotten an insane array of cool guests for this one, from Ministry’s Sin Quirin to Youko Heidy and many more.

SMM2016d

“We needed a name. We did this surgically in a sense that it was me and Sam. Jello came down for a weekend but otherwise it was two of us hashing out ideas. So it was surgical. The first half of the record was so fast. I did the guitar and bass on it and had stiff little fingers playing meth music to keep up with the kids. And the drums were machines because Sammy did all the programming. So, Surgical Meth Machine. And it is funny because now I am doing more press on this than Ministry, Revco and Lard combined! It’s pretty gross.” -Al Jourgensen.

Surgical Meth Machine is the latest brain boggler from industrial legend Al Jourgensen. It is pretty much down to Al and Keef Richards in the rock n roll unkillable deadpool at this point, but Al shows no signs of releasing anything less than crazy before the apocalypse (or being in a Disney movie). SMM is a rollercoaster of a weird record that has some of his most unhinged, white knuckle/teeth gnashing machine thrash in years but gets increasingly through the looking glass and trippy as the record eggs you on into a black hole.

The album was crafted off-and-on over a period of 12 months, mostly in the
Cuban-American singer and multi-instrumentalist’s Burbank, California studio
with longtime engineer Sam D’Ambruoso.

So, first time I interviewed Al years ago he told me I should make a necklace out of my vas deferens and about how doctors lost his toe once and teaching his dog to be a designated driver.It was awesome to talk AGAIN to Al today and pick his brain about medical marijuana, the algorithms of the apocalypse, politics and this awesome new record from Nuclear Blast.

Disturbed have been back hard riding the wave of success for new album Immortalized after a 4 year break (though I secretly liked Device much better).  Still, you can’t blame Draiman because he and his fellow Disturbed bandmates really built a juggernaut with that group. Personal taste aside, this tour is gonna be huge. Congrats to the Pop Evil guys for showing that a hard rock band can still rise up through the ranks via hard work to land an opening slot on something like this. Also respect to Rob Zombie and Disturbed for trying to give fans a larger tour. People have no ambition these days.

 

Ps. I know we all want to be too cool for school and say we killed nuns listening to Dissection in 4th grade, but without gateway bands and larger arena shows drawing in more populist, thrill seekers…there just isn’t gonna be any money to keep bands able to tour beyond limited scenarios. DIY is awesome and can be amazing but with the added expenses and lack of support these days, most bands can’t cut it.

I’m all for the bigger scene vets helping keep a larger tent open so there is someplace to reach a wider audience (ie. Danzig and Zombie recently did a show with critical darlings Witch Mountain, for example).

Anyways…GET UP AND KILL!

The Browning

Finnish-based record label Spinefarm has announced the signing of Kansas City electro-deathcore beat-droppers The Browning.

Jonny McBee had this to say about the signing:

“I am really proud of what THE BROWNING has become. It’s been a long, hard road. Signing with Spinefarm is a big step in the awesome direction this band is going and I cannot wait for the future. Excited for the world to hear this next album!” 

The Browning’s last album Hypernova came out in 2013. The follow up (and Spinefarm debut) is due out this summer.

In addition to signing The Browning, Spinefarm has signed Helhorse and Royal Thunder. Read more about those signings here.

Song Of The Week: Mortiis “The Shining Lamp Of God”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, January 8, 2016 at 11:04 AM (PST)

mortiisband2015_638

This new Mortiis track and spooky video (that looks like someone let Floria Sigismundi loose in Dr. Jeckyl’s lab) rocked us this week. It’s a track that could’ve fit well in mid-90’s industrial DJ sets alongside Skrew, 1000 Homo DJs or Pigface.

It also could just as easily appeal to Cradle Of Filth fans for attitude and glammed out darkness dalliance. I for one am all over this track.

Ministry-esque big guitar industrial metal with a dancing. blacker heart. Crank it and spank it.

One of our favorite releases of last year was 2015’s Force Rise The Sun from melodic power rockers INAEONA. The band features the knife sharp roar of guitarist and frontwoman Bridge , bassist Dave and the pounding drums of James (all seasoned scenesters). This band is poised for bigger and better tomorrows if they keep up this grind. We love them!

“Streetcleaner” returns to vinyl.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 3:37 PM (PST)

GodfleshS_LP-1000x1000

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.

Threat Signal sign with Agonia Records

Threat Signal have been a favorite here at Metal Riot since the site started. Definitely one of the first bands I interviewed for this site and they are always releasing awesome stuff. Now the band have signed with the tastemaking Agonia Records (Aosoth, The Moth Gatherer, Demonical) for a new release, Disconnect.

Frontman Jon Howard commented on the signing:
“We are very excited to have inked a deal with Agonia records. We strongly believe that Agonia will be a great partnership, and together we will push Threat Signal’s music to more listeners than ever before. Our new album ‘Disconnect’ in my opinion is the strongest album we’ve recorded to date. Thank you Agonia for making this happen for us, and we look forward to the road ahead!”.

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.
