Stream / share ALL OUT WAR‘s “Burn These Enemies” HERE.

As New York metallic hardcore outfit ALL OUT WAR prepares to release their damaging new Give Us Extinction LP through Organized Crime Records next month, the band has unleashed the first single from the album, debuting “Burn These Enemies” through Stereokiller.

ALL OUT WAR arises with arguably the band’s most crushing material to date on their sixth official album, Give Us Extinction. With more than forty-two minutes of unchecked aggression, the album sees vocalist Mike Score’s scornful accusations at mankind strike with more venomous intensity than ever. The monstrous grooves and slamming breakdowns executed by drummer Jesse Sutherland, bassist Erik Carrillo, and guitarists Taras Apuzzo and Andy Pietroloungo leave craters of scorched earth in their wake with a monolithic NYHC-fueled mandate, while searing elements of thrash metal blaze forth from the wreckage. The album furiously delivers eleven original tracks, and the band pays homage to New York punk/crust icons Nausea with a cover of the band’s “Cybergod.”

Portrait  from Sweden release a new record on August 25th, a (cough) fiery set of songs entitled Burn The World. It seems a fitting title for the direction humankind is headed lately from war to global warming to constant political unrest.

Soaring 80’s-esque vocals recalling Queensryche, Priest and Mercyful Fate style wailing pair with a charged up mid tempo arrangement fans of a classic sound and good songwriting will be enthused about. This song really rips.

Avenged Sevenfold release “Dose”

Posted by Metal Riot on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 2:30 PM (PST)

First came their cover of Mexican folk song “Malagueña Salerosa,” followed by a reimagining of Mr. Bungle’s “Retrovertigo.” Now Avenged Sevenfold continue the rollout of new tracks with the release of “Dose,” a song originally intended to be part of the track listing on newest album, The Stage.

“Musically, ‘Dose’ was supposed to be a Part 2 to “Roman Sky” and had a very cinematic feel, but we turned it into more of a tripped-out metal song,” says vocalist M. Shadows. “The lyrics were inspired by an unsolved mystery that dates back to the 1950s about an airline traveler who, if you believe the story, supposedly fell into our dimension from another. According to reports, he showed up in a Tokyo airport with a passport from a country that didn’t exist anywhere on a map. He was detained for questioning, but mysteriously vanished from a room guarded by immigration officials, taking with him all evidence of his existence. It ties into the theory that there are infinite possibilities of our lives being played out across space and time. Don’t know if the story is true, but I’m fascinated by that kind of stuff and thought it’d be a fun idea for a song.”

Check out the song, which almost comes off like A7X with a Soundgarden feel, below.

“The World Is Yours” encourage ARCH ENEMY on new rager

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 1:25 PM (PST)

ARCH ENEMY have risen once again and are ready to accelerate at full force as they unleash the masterful new single, “The World Is Yours”, taken from their forthcoming album, Will To Power, due out on September 8 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS worldwide.

Mastermind Michael Amott comments, “We’ve been hard at work on the new album for a while now and we’re proud to present the first taste of new Arch Enemy music in over three years with our new single and video, ‘The World Is Yours’! This was the first song I wrote for the upcoming ‘Will To Power’ album and Daniel (Erlandsson, drums) helped me arrange and finish it up. One of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around. We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering – in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record, ‘War Eternal’. People that have heard this song in particular are saying it’s got the classic anthemic Arch Enemy vibe going on, and I think they might be right about that… Looking forward to playing it live on stage later this summer!”

The massive debut track, which can be heard and seen in their rousing music video HERE , will be offered as an instant download with all digital pre-orders and is also available on all streaming platforms.

Head to http://willtopower.centurymedia.com to find all digital and physical pre-order options.

Wilderness Dream stream brilliant “Paralysis Rise” album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 1:52 PM (PST)

Longhairedpoet aka TransAnarchist aka Jessica and I have been stoked around these parts on the Wilderness Dream stuff. The band name is very evocative and doesn’t pin them down, they have a pretty unique dark and sludgy sound and the material is full of fire, talent and grit.

Stream their whole new album Paralysis Rise before release HERE now! Along with the new Cormorant, Expulsion and Demon Eye records, it is one of the more “must hear” heavier records of mid Summer. Check the 2:19 section of “Ghosts” and tell me that section alone doesn’t get you rowdy and ready to rage!

 Paralysis Rise will see release on 12″ vinyl and digital platforms tomorrow, Friday, July 14th, via Creator-Destructor Records; find preorders at THIS LOCATION.

This Friday (July 14th), Bloodclot – featuring true hardcore pioneers John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy’s Law), Joey Castillo (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Blast!), Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Dwarves) – will release their new album, Up In Arms, via Metal Blade Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has launched a new track today: “Slow Kill Genocide”

John Joseph remains one of the most intense, well spoken and important performers in the scene and it is super awesome to see him putting so much energy back into this project – one of his coolest endeavors. The pairing with Metal Blade is inspired, arguably still the most important larger heavy music label backing a diverse array of bands from Anaal Nathrakh to Candiria to Harlott these days and many more.

Toilet Ov Hell is one of the cooler blogs in the clogged plumbing of the interweb. Today they premiere the new single from tech death outfit Inanimate Existence. Tech death outfit sounds like if Iron Man went like full blown evil and just started blasting people’s heads off when Tony Stark gets too wasted. Hmmm…tangent.

Anyway, Inanimate Existence recently announced their forthcoming fourth album, Underneath a Melting Sky. If that bad ass album title doesn’t make you want to take shrooms and lose your mind reading Lovecraft immediately, perhaps you are currently visiting the wrong website?

Says Toilet Ov Hell regarding today’s song premiere:
“In Moonlight I Am Reborn” is the unification of the old and new, bearing the strong, full riffs of the band’s earlier efforts with the ethereal synths of their most recent. The beginning of the song illustrates this perfectly: you’re immediately greeted with a big meaty triplet riff backed with a subtle layer of synth and effects-laden clean guitar. The haunting atmosphere has the subtlety of their older work, but with the multilayered complexity of Calling. The two halves of their sound work together now better than ever before, and the resulting effect is something akin to meditating under a waterfall: relentlessly pummeling, but surprisingly contemplative.”

You can listen to “In Moonlight I Am Reborn” HERE

Pre-orders for Underneath a Melting Sky are now live at these locations:

No joke doom band USNEA are a band who, like Minsk or Samothrace, I always enjoy the shit out of but sometimes forget to listen to. The cool thing is that every chance I rediscover them I get psyched! Hopefully many more people will learn of this band with the pending release of their third album.

Entitled Portals Into Futility, the deep thinking doomer’s latest is due out September 8th on CD, 2xLP, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical preorders and exclusive bundles are currently available via Relapse,com at THIS LOCATION .

Portals Into Futility Track Listing:
1. Eidolons And The Increate
2. Lathe Of Heaven
3. Demon Haunted World
4. Pyrrhic Victory
5. A Crown Of Desolation

From the press release:

Now in 2017, USNEA returns with their third full-length album, Portals Into Futility. An array of sci-fi novels that are becoming more and more of a reality in these volatile times informed the band’s writing throughout the album, including Shadow Of The Torturer by Gene Wolfe, Lathe Of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin, Valis by Philip K Dick, Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan, and Dune by Frank Herbert. Portals Into Futility was recorded with Fester and assistant Andrew Grosse at Caravan Recordings and Haywire Studios in Portland, Oregon and mastered by Adam Gonsalvez at Telegraph Audio.

Well, I loved their past work but am def sold as anything that remotely mentions the super freaky and unnerving Shadow of The Torturer as an inspiration must be checked out! Start out with “Lathe Of Heaven” below, however. This one was inspired by Ursula K. Le Guin.

Gateway to Hell stream “Tin Roof”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 2:39 PM (PST)

Maryland doomsters Gateway to Hell are streaming their newest song “Tin Roof” via The Obelisk.

“Tin Roof” comes off the band’s upcoming album Clovers due out later this month via Unholy Anarchy Records.

This is what the band had to say about “Tin Roof”:

“‘Tin Roof’ is our take on the dread conjured every time you turn on the TV news or pick up a newspaper. There’s an overwhelming sense that society as we know it is on a downward curve and that the ones up top are just completely oblivious as the world crumbles around them. The title is a shout-out to ‘Love Shack’ by the B-52s. We felt the pause in the song would be the perfect opportunity for Cindy Wilson to belt out the ‘Tin roof, rusted!’ from ‘Love Shack,’ so ‘Tin Roof’ was what we named the early demo tracks and it just stuck. We felt it fit thematically — years of neglecting the simple upkeep leading to a full collapse of the house. This song is about as political as we’ll ever get but we tried to be careful not to be too specific, as there’s nothing more boring than when a singer sounds like they are reading from a newspaper. As always, the riff comes first…”

Head over to The Obelisk to stream “Tin Roof” now.

You can also check out the title track over at the band’s Bandcamp page.

Warbeast stream new song “Maze of the Minotaur”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, July 5, 2017 at 6:10 PM (PST)

Texas thrashers Warbeast are streaming their latest song “Maze of the Minotaur” over at Decibel.

“Maze of the Minotaur” comes off of Warbeast’s upcoming album Enter The Arena due out August 4 via Housecore Records.

The record features newest Warbeast recruits, guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud.

“I wanted write in a different mode than we normally do; some more mid-paced and slower breakdowns mixed with thrash,” relays guitarist Scott Shelby of the track. “So this happened to really stand out as a notable song. I’m also proud to break out my version of Tony Iommi leads from the Born Again era on this track. Then of course I gave it to [vocalist] Bruce [Corbitt] and he roped it off with the crazy story of the ‘Maze Of The Minotaur.'” 

“My favorite subjects to write about are obviously about horror, psychos, medieval times, and Greek mythology,” Corbitt adds. “I’ve wanted to write a song about the Minotaur for years [In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man]. As soon as I heard the music Shelby came up with, I knew this was the one to capture the atmosphere. The chorus part of the music pretty much spoke to me and I could hear it actually saying the lyrics. That’s when you know it’s going to be a special song.”

Corbitt was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The disease is treatable though rarely curable. Corbitt is currently undergoing an intensive schedule of radiation treatments and played his final show on May 27.

The band’s CD release party will be taking place on July 14. Vocals will be handled by Anselmo, Edwin Neal (Texas Chain Saw Massacre), and Wayne Abney (Hammer Witch).

Comments Anselmo, “In light of the complicated situations surrounding Bruce Corbitt, lead vocalist for Rigor Mortis and Warbeast, respectively, most of us sisters and brothers in the heavy metal community are very aware of, I’d like to extend an enormous amount of just-praise upon him. Since the late 1980s to the present, Bruce has always been a person to count on as a friend, and an excellent man to work closely with. Our love of music brought us together and created an unbreakable bond, and that is a priceless cornerstone that can’t be ignored when examining one’s life in hindsight. Bruce has always shot me straight, given me life advice, and from my perspective, has always been there for anyone and everyone in need, for a myriad of unselfish reasons. I thank all that’s good out there I had the chance to be a part of the four Warbeast releases, and I feel Bruce’s best is on their latest record, Into The Arena. He’s a warrior, a fighter, and best of all, for the better of the genre, one of the most recognized voices in all of heavy metal. Well done, Big Brother.”

Five Horse Johnson stream ‘Jake Leg Boogie’ via Echoes and Dust

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 3:52 PM (PST)

Toledo blues rockers Five Horse Johnson are streaming their latest full-length album Jake Leg Boogie over at Echoes and Dust.

Eric Oblander (vocals/harp) had this to say about the album:

“In many ways, making Jake Leg Boogie was one of the easiest albums to create, even though it took four years to make — sorry, Small Stone [laughs]. Our drummer Tim Gahagan is the engine that drives this band. Over the years, we have been very blessed to have a bevy of kick ass drummers sit in with us. I mean, it’s not every band who gets to make not one, buttwo albums with the great Jean Paul Gaster. But we all grew up with Tim, he was our very first drummer decades ago, and few people understand how we want to do this thing better than he does. That, along with Phil D taking a larger role in the writing process really opened up some fresh angles for us. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard Steve or Brad play better on any of our albums to date, and Brad’s lyric and vocal performances are the best yet. I striped back my harp playing and vocals a bit and tried to find the juicy, primal center, and getting back to collaborating with Brad on lyrics really helped me find fresh, new ways to sing some of the thoughts that were rolling around in my head. Also, thanks to artist Mark Dancey’s understanding of the FIVE HORSE JOHNSON mission, the album art was, as usual, exactly what we wanted and needed. At the end of the day FIVE HORSE JOHNSON is just a group of guys who like to laugh at each other’s jokes, throw back a few beers, travel the world playing music together, and record the coolest albums we can along the way, to document our experiences. Sometimes, if you don’t over think it and just get to it, good things happen. And that’s what’s at the heart of our new album Jake Leg Boogie. We hope ya’ll dig listening to it as much as we dug making it.”

Head over to Echoes and Dust to stream Jake Leg Boogie in its entirety.

Origin post official playthrough for “Accident and Error”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 11:52 AM (PST)

Unprecedented reigning tech death champs Origin have posted a playthrough for a new song “Accident and Error”. The song is from the band’s latest ear fuck Unparalleled Universe.

Unparalleled Universe was recorded and mixed at Chapman Studios in February 2017 alongside longtime collaborator and engineer Robert Rebeck (Tech N9ne). The band emerged with ten new songs including a cover of Brujeria’s “Revolución”, that were mastered in March 2017 by Colin Marston at Menegroth – The Thousand Caves (Altar of Plagues, Jarobe, Krallice) and wrapped in a cover prepared by Filip Ivanovic (Dismember, Cryptopsy, Heavy Montreal, Gorguts).

“It feels like an Origin album, but it’s unparalleled to what you might expect if you haven’t heard us for 10 or 15 years” says Paul Ryan. “To me, it’s a true reflection of ourselves. I compare it to an action movie. Our earlier material is filled with action from beginning to end. Now, the idea is to add a little more depth and dynamics. You could say there are some twists in the plot musically”.

Greek heavy metallers Serpent Lord have revealed another new song called “Blood Offering”. It has an especially cool bridge with climbing and yes, serpentine guitars before the bold vocals return. Another strong song from a band which obviously bleeds for metal.

The recordings were done at Infected Studios in 2017, mixed and mastered by George Infected.

“I fear the future and the future is me”. – Serpent Lord
