Today, Swiss avant-garde extreme metal titans SCHAMMASCH proudly unveil the first track from their highly anticipated new album, Triangle, which is set for worldwide release on April 29 via Prosthetic Records.

Triangle marks the band’s third album and encompasses 100 minutes in its entirety, with three distinct 33-minute movements differing in atmosphere and style and each representing the three stages of the album’s strong concept – Part I: The Process Of Dying, Part II: Metaflesh and Part III: The Supernal Clear Light Of The Void. This very unique concept is visually presented by a series of four photographs presented as a bold triple-gatefold, limited-edition 3LP set and a 3CD set with imagery realised by acclaimed photographer Ester Segarra (Watain, Behemoth) and graphic designer Valnoir (Alcest, The Black Dahlia Murder). Rarely is such a grand musical and aestethic feat accomplished within the bounds of extreme metal.

“Consensus,” the first track to see the light of day from their forthcoming epic, can be seen streaming below.

PROSTHETIC RECORDS will be releasing legendary progressive metallers WATCHTOWER‘s recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD. The four tracks will be combined with one brand new song, creating the EP “Concepts of Math: Book One” and will be released on limited edition vinyl and digipack CD later this year.

 

Comments vocalist Alan Tecchio:

“I am so stoked to be a part of this legendary jazz-metal-prog group once again! Right now we are close to finishing the tracking for the additional 10 minute song that we are adding to the other four tunes. This will complete the EP that Prosthetic plans to release later this year. I can tell you that the new song is especially super cool and has that classic Watchtower sound. I think the fans, both new and old, will have a deep appreciation for what is going to be available from us later this year.”

 

Guitarist Ron Jarzombek further remarked on the partnership:

“I’m psyched to be on the same label as my old friend Marty Friedman! Prosthetic has also been home to great bands like Gojira, Animals As Leaders, All That Remains, as well as my fellow Texans, Scale the Summit. It’s nice to know we are in good company on this label. The music we’ll release later this year picks up right where we left off with ‘Control And Resistance’.”

Big shoes to fill vocally, but this dude seems up for it. Great scream! Skeletonwitch are too important to the scene and epic to be donezo!

Hail! 

 Today, the Ohio-based blackened metal quintet SKELETONWITCH – who will join Abbath, High On Fire and Tribulation on this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour, which kicks off March 17 – officially welcomes Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) as their new vocalist. Last month, the group recorded a new EP, due to be released this summer, with Clemans at Baltimore’s Developing Nations with producer Kevin Bernsten (Magrudergrind, Noisem, Mutilation Rites). A brief teaser of new music can be heard in the below video, in which Clemans discusses how he came to join the band.

 

“I’m very proud to be a part of the SKELETONWITCH camp, and I’m very excited about how the new EP turned out,” says Clemans. “Working with like-minded musicians is always a pleasure, and I’m confident that the new chapter of this band will carry the SKELETONWITCH banner properly and proudly.”

Adds guitarist Scott Hedrick, “We are extremely excited to announce Adam as the new singer for SKELETONWITCH. He’s a killer vocalist, lyricist, and all-around creative force. Please welcome him to the SKELETONWITCH family as we begin this new chapter. As always, thanks to everyone who has, and continues to, support us.”

Clemans appears alongside Abbath, High On Fire’s Matt Pike and Tribulation’s Johannes Andersson on the cover of the new issue of Decibel Magazine, which hits newsstands on March 2 and is available for pre-order at this location.

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!

Album Review: Exmortus – “Ride Forth”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, December 24, 2015 at 9:28 AM (PST)

a1107499627_10

Exmortus return with Ride Forth, another powerful team up between the band and Prosthetic Records. From a razor edged cover of Beethoven’s “Apassionata” that would make The Great Kat and Bill & Ted of Wyld Stallyns proud to rugged and rowdy thrash originals with grimy yowls that invigorate with the same battle hardened intensity you’d expect from Skeletonwitch or the much missed crimson screams of early 3 Inches Of Blood.

“Black Sails” is a mid paced march that really stands out, the band a single entity of undeniable dueling guitars, melodic veined fiery runs and drumming that pumps you up and holds things together. Exmortus always get me charged up and wanting to go jog up a mountain. “For The Horde” is one of the fastest tunes from the group yet, a lightning blur of guitars that swipe like the downward killing stroke of a vorpal blade. It’s easy to envision the ramparts, just sayin’.

“Let Us Roam” is another favorite, the band really allowing themselves to cut loose with the shred but with an emphasis on cool songwriting arrangements and strong vocal engagement that deifies the grasp of some tech death bands, for example. Perhaps it is the thrashier influence at the heart of these also very classic heavy metal influenced tunes that invigorates rather than the distraction that comes with tech death in knowing that you could be listening to classic old school death metal and it would probably be better (though I love some tech stuff like Revocation and Fallujah bigtime). “Fire and Ice” gives Evile a run for their money with a very Metallica-tastic intro before a super medieval tinged gallop ensues, just an epic metal treat for fans of this stuff.

Verdict is once again Exmortus fans shall behold triumph.

As many readers of my bloody quill scribbles know, I tend to prefer to write about bands I like then give more press to bands I think suck or who are assholes, unless they have personally wronged me in which case I will take them to task with a vengeance. Exmortus are a band I have zero complaints about and they seem to be quite diehard, just out there to kick ass and support metal’s growth like Battlecross, Napalm Death or other bands who live to tour and hit it hard and true with a stake through the heart of poseurs.

Exmortus are one of my favorites in the modern metal scene and I can firmly get behind their sentiments in “Death To Tyrants”. a killer new Ride Forth track which has a new lyric video premiering at Revolver HERE. The Exmortus bunch are sounding ever more Skeletonwitchy meets Exodus to me, but it aint like that is a bad thing at all. The song has the same name as one of the best newer Sick Of It All albums but we’ll let that slide this time.

Basically, if only this song came with donuts it would be perfect.
Be one of the first 300 customers to pre-order “Ride Forth” on CD, LP (black, red or smoke variants) or bundled with a t-shirt, long sleeve or zip-up hoodie from the Prosthetic webshop and you’ll receive a phone call from one of the band members!

The Los Angeles-based, neoclassical metal-inspired extreme shred quartet EXMORTUS will further their claim that “metal is king” in early 2016 with their blistering new album, Ride Forth. The menacing cover for the new release – featuring oil-painted artwork by the legendary Philip Lawvere (Kreator, Celtic Frost), who previously contributed his epic artistry to the band’s critically-acclaimed 2014 label debut, Slave To The Sword – can be seen above.

“Ride Forth” was recorded earlier this year with producer Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Immolation) before the group hit the road alongside guitar legend Marty Friedman on his recent North American tour. More details about the new album will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The exceedingly harsh collaboration N.V. between Gnaw Their Tongues and Dragged Into Sunlight is streaming at The Quietus HERE ahead of Friday’s Prosthetic release.

Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick was on board to produce the record along with Tom Dring (whom previously has worked on several DIS releases, including 2012’s “Widowmaker”).

Last night writing the delightfully awesome Bridge Laviazar of Prosthetic’s 2015 standout act InAeona, things were going well until she threatened to kill me if I listed her band as “Goth Metal.”

I was telling her how I wish we had a post-metal category on the drop down menu of this site and was trying to figure out what to categorize her band’s amazing, spacious and heavy, outer space meets a little bit industrial racket. We were going through the categories you can choose from on this site and none seemed to really fit.

“If you put us as Goth Metal I will find you and kill you,” she…joked? I told her there were worse fates than sitting in a coffee shop somewhere and having a blue haired amazon run in and decapitate me. In fact, my friends would think it was pretty fitting and probably just shrug. We finally settled on “no genre”.

However you choose to describe the East Coast trio, which also includes James Dunham and Dave Soucy, they have a massive and awesome sound. Force Rise The Sun is one of the years best records. I wont say where it sits on my year end list yet because the end of the year is still a few weeks away, but let’s just say it is absolutely in the top 5 albums of 2015 for me.

In case you were having a nice day that feels nothing like licking the rust off a corrosive barrel while listening to super fucked up samples about someone strangling a woman to death or violent fantasies, don’t listen to the new super depressing and intense blackened industrial face fuck of a tune from Dragged Into Sunlight/Gnaw Their Tongues mutual collaboration disc “N.V”.

These are both bands whose names or artwork have repulsed people when I have mentioned them in recent years, so it is fitting that a collaboration between them would be really disturbing like a marathon of serial killer documentaries. It frankly makes you feel like a sick bastard for liking it, but the music is a next level nuclear bootprint to the squished guts of our lovely modern times.

Produced by Justin from fucking GODFLESH!!! and Tom Dring, it is the dark fruit of a long planned endeavor. CVLT Nation has the new tune “Visceral Repulsion” HERE and it is seriously freakin’ evil.  I already was having a radioactive steaming ear day due to Brad from Fad Nauseam turning me onto this sick ass band KVØID (who have a great James Plotkin mastered full length out that rocks kinda like Leviathan on a mechanized date with Batillus). This has really been a fan-fucking-tastic year for super harsh, darker industrial influenced extreme metal.

“N.V.” is available now for pre-order on CD or LP (including limited pressings in black, piss yellow and transparent milk w/ black splatter) via Prosthetic‘s webstore (http://store.prostheticrecords.com). Digital pre-orders will launch tomorrow on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp, with “Visceral Repulsion” offered as an immediate download with purchase.

Further cementing their status as one of the forerunners of heavy metal’s up-and-coming regime, the neoclassical-influenced extreme shred quartet EXMORTUS recently finished an epic month-long trek across North America with legendary guitarist Marty Friedman. The band will continue to showcase their “fantastic guitar style and blistering musicanship” (Metal Assault) on their sophomore release for Prosthetic Records, Ride Forth! Scheduled for release in early 2016, Ride Forth was recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, Calif. with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Immolation), who also helmed the band’s critically lauded 2014 label debut Slave to the Sword.

Album Review: Ramming Speed – “No Epitaphs”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, August 24, 2015 at 11:27 AM (PST)

PromoImage

East Coast smashers Ramming Speed are one of the more chaotic, thrashy bands
around, like their label mates Exmortus often sounding like one big evil as
fuck party. Ramming Speed have really dogged it out to get to album number
three and have a lot of cred in the crust punk scene as well. They just seem
like an awesome band and can really play a good, rough around the edges more
punky version of thrash.

Full review BELOW.
