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!”

New England hardcore punks Slow Death have released their debut album Hate-Filled World via Corpse Flower Records.

The band is comprised of Randy Larsen, former bassist and singer for noise rockers Cable and Empty Flowers, drummer Matt Spearin of Disapperer, guitarist Jeremy Medeiros, and bassist Jesse Sherman.

In August of 2016, the band entered Dead Air Studios with Will Killingsworth (Vaccine, Orchid, Laceration, Ampere, Bucket Full Of Teeth) to track their first record which was recorded and mixed in just two days. Just as quickly as the record was recorded, Corpse Flower Records agreed to release the record as a one-sided 12″ with a screen-printed B-side created by renowned illustrator Mark Rudolph (Carcass, Coalesce, Battlecross etc.).

Boasting eight battering songs, clocking in at around eighteen minutes, Slow Deaths’s meticulous mix of old punk and hardcore blended with some early AmRep style noise rock is sure to catch the attention of heavy music fans young and old. Lyrically, the band centers its attention on old horror movies and serial killers, mixed with a sentiment of depression and frustration.

You can head over to Corpse Flower Records Bandcamp and stream the album in its entirety.

Wednesday 13 releases newest video for “Condolences”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 2, 2017 at 10:11 PM (PST)

Wednesday 13 released his newest album Condolences on June 2 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Wednesday 13 speaks about the title track:

“We weren’t trying to do a really long, Iron Maiden-type of song — it just came out that way. It wasn’t forced and I think it’s awesome! It’s one of the first songs I wrote for the record. The title Condolences came from when David Bowie passed away; I kept seeing ‘Condolences, sorry for your loss.’ I realized how powerful that word was, so I picked my guitar up and started writing the riff for it; I had the chorus instantly.”

He continued:

“We shortened the song for the video — we cut two minutes off of it. But it’s still a really, really dark song. And I think we captured that vibe in the video. It’s definitely the strangest thing I’ve ever done – I filmed my fake funeral. I had all my friends there, putting flowers on a casket; it was really weird! I had a wreath that said, ‘In Memory of Wednesday 13.’ I’m the priest in it, doing my eulogy, and I’m also inside the casket, like I’m being buried alive. When we filmed the video, the director, Matt Zane, said, ‘This reminds me of Twisted Sister – ‘Burn In Hell’ or ‘Captain Howdy.’ And I was like, ‘Holy shit, it does! I didn’t even realize it.”

New Hampshire metallers Vattnet have shortened their name from Vattnet Viskar and have released a new song entitled “Dark Black” via Brooklynvegan.

The band has signed with New Damage Records, which will release the band’s upcoming full-length worldwide. Check back with Metal Riot as album details will be announced shortly.

Bassist Casey Aylward says:

“This is definitely the first riff that kicked off the record and solidified the direction that we knew we wanted to aim for going forward. As for lyrics, it’s about people in your life that consistently let you down, the people around them down, and of course themselves down. There’s a point where there is really no helping them because you realize that ultimately their freedom of choice will supersede anything you could do for them, and even if you cut them out of your life, you and others can still be collateral damage. It can be a dark thing to completely give up on humans or to be given up on.The title is an attempt to add a futile amount of humor to the subject, dark comedy if you will, dark black. Macabre.”

Wilderness Dream premiere “The Observer” via Decibel

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 7:21 PM (PST)

Oakland blackened thrashers Wilderness Dream have premiered their song “The Observer” over at Decibel.

“The Observer” comes off of the band’s forthcoming EP Paralysis Rise out July 14 via Creator-Destructor Records.

Wilderness Dream guitarist/vocalist and label owner Ben Murray proclaims:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you the first single from our upcoming second EP! After some deliberation, we came to the consensus that ‘The Observer’ was the most violent, crushing preview of the tone of this record, and we hope that you all enjoy it! ‘The Observer’ is the closing track on Paralysis Rise, and definitely reveals the shift in our sound towards a darker, less melodic realm of the blackened thrash metal universe…Turn the lights down and turn that shit up!”

Wilderness Dream will be hitting California the first week of August, you can check out those tour dates and music from the band’s bandcamp here.

There are some records I have been waiting for a long time, such as Blackguard’s troubled Storm. Others that are in progress but aren’t near to being done such as the next Wax Idols, for example. Then there are bands like Icelandic rock band SÓLSTAFIR who I don’t follow super closely but am certainly a true fan of. Everything they have done has been stellar and moving stuff, like a kind of Sigur Rós with black metal roots.

I met a film director the other day rocking one of their t shirts and we had a spirited discussion about how great they are. This made me also recall that they had sorted some inner band issues and have a new record almost upon us. In fact, it is called Berdreyminn and is due this May 26th! This one seems to also explore some more of their hard rock influences, but in very non conformist ways.

The album, produced by Birgir Birgirsson (SIGUR RÓS, ALCEST) and Jaime Gomez-Arellano (GHOST, PARADISE LOST, ULVER), is lauded as “a compelling journey that offers ’80’s-style synths, chuggy rock riffing, Pink Floyd-y prog overtones, sweeping Fields of the Nephilim guitars, haunting orchestral arrangements and occasional metallic crunch” (Decibel Magazine) and is available across multiple formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

SÓLSTAFIR recently unveiled all of the stunning new music from Berdreyminn. The album stream appears alongside an interview with vocalist Aðalbjörn Tryggvason at Noisey. Dive into another special experience from this smart and original group pushing the boundaries of our scene now.

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!”

BardSpec release “Gamma” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:36 PM (PST)

Enslaved’s Ivar Bjørnson’s project BardSpec has released a music video for the track “Gamma.”

“Gamma” comes off of BardSpec’s forthcoming album Hydrogen due out June 23 via Norse Music.

Comments Bjørnson of the band’s latest single:

‘Gamma’ is a meditation on the magic of science, or perhaps the science of magic. The mysteries of the atom and nuclear physics have fascinated me deeply as long as I can remember. Enlightened humans have known for thousands of years that the concept of ‘god’ dwells within the corporal being, and with the atom bomb the proof was definite…to me at least. As scientist in charge [American theoretical physicist and professor of physics Julius Robert] Oppenheimer said, watching the first test atom bomb go off: ‘I have become Shiva: Destroyer Of Worlds.’ The other aspect of radiation is its communicative powers; of carrying information over enormous distances. We learn things about the universe and its early days from watching bursts of Gamma Ray make its way through the universe. Musically speaking it is one of the heavier songs, which I managed to sneak in a little Sigur Ros tribute into as well.

Check out the video for “Gamma” here.
