Yob’s “The Great Cessation” re-issue released

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, December 10, 2017 at 1:29 PM (PST)

Awakened doom voyagers Yob have re-issued their 5th full length, The Great Cessation via Relapse Records. The album has been completely remastered by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive) with two bonus tracks plus beautiful new artwork that reminds me a bit of Ascend’s Ample Fire Within for some reason. We highly recommend you take some time and get into this important step in the band’s discography.

Unearth ‘The Oncoming Storm’ Vinyl Re-Issue news

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 3:15 PM (PST)

Pre Orders are now available HERE for a re-issue of Unearth‘s breakout album The Oncoming Storm. The record helped make the band one of the guiding lights of Metalcore in the early 00’s and built on the promise of earlier material soundly. Perhaps the band’s most ‘classic’ early release with fans, Unearth really hit an early career stride with this release by slightly refining their twin guitar attack into a more road tested and deadly professional sound. Nonetheless, it still remains heavy as hell and the band have never broken that pact with fans.

The Oncoming Storm LP re-issue
–180g Black Vinyl
–orange-brown marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – ltd. 300)
–“flame” splattered vinyl (EU exclusive – ltd. 200)
–pumpkin orange marbled vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 300)
–root beer marbled vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 300)
–gold / black split vinyl (US exclusive – ltd. 700)

Threat Signal have returned with their near impervious new smasher Disconnect. You can order the bruising new futuristic groove metal album from Agonia HERE in lots of format options  (we’re kinda digging the lifesaver looking red and blue vinyl). Props to the dudes on a fearsome return. This record really enhances their overall discography and unifies a lot of elements. Some exciting moments, to be sure. RIYL Fear Factory, Soilwork, Linkin Park.

Surmiser and Walking Bombs release “Sexy Beasts” 2 song split

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:46 PM (PST)

Upstate, NY projects Surmiser and Walking Bombs have released a new 2 song split exclusively via Bandcamp RIGHT HERE.

The Surmiser track finds the space grunge band re-interpreting the first song they ever wrote “What End?” into a slightly more driving and post-punk attack that still has a sort of heavy distortion that will please fans of Melvins’ epic cover of The Wiper’s “Youth Of America” while perhaps also appealing to the Publicist UK crowd with droll yet potent vocals.

Walking Bombs jumps genres with practically every song (their last song was an extreme grindcore tune), but this new one is a very psych pop influenced non-metal song called “Queen E”. It barely passes two minutes but has many textures in that time until the ‘peak’ at the ending. This one is more for the kind of grunge fan who also leaned towards The Breeders and Kurt’s Beatles influence rather than the more Nevermind-fitting Surmiser track. Check them out!

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 5:55 PM (PST)

From the crunchy guitar and classic metal vocal power of Savage Messiah’s “Solar Corona” from Hands Of Fate to Bell Witch’s herculean Mirror Reaper to All Pigs Must Die’s latest audio attack to Gwar’s first record without Oderus, late October 2017 has some brilliant moments for the metal world to enjoy and argue over! Check out why we recommend this handful for you to purchase before November’s coming fire BELOW.

Swedish progressive folk rockers Agusa are streaming their latest song “Bortom Hemom” via Obelisk.

The song comes off the forthcoming self-titled album, which is due out in late October via Laser’s Edge.

Agusa’s Mikael Ödesjö said of the song:

“‘Bortom Hemom’ translates roughly as ‘Beyond Homeward’ and consists of two sections joined together by a bridge. The first part is in 7/4 and the second in 3/4. Perhaps our most ‘progressive’ effort this far. Enjoy!”

Head on over to Obelisk to stream “Bortom Hemom.”

Cannibal Corpse “Red Before Black” album details and pre orders.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 9:46 AM (PST)

On November 3rd, kings of death metal Cannibal Corpse will release their 14th full-length, Red Before Black, via Metal Blade Records. This is their best album title in awhile. A Skeletal Domain was cool and all but the cover art was more haunting and didn’t really give the sense of mayhem as well as this cover. The title Red Before Black also just sounds like it is gonna be classic while having more imagination than, say, KILL. Hahaha.

For a first preview of Red Before Black, the band has launched a video for the single, “Code of the Slashers”. Directed by Zev Deans (www.panoramaprogramming.com – who created videos for Behemoth‘s “Messe Noire”, Ghost‘s “Square Hammer”, Portal‘s “Curtain”), “Code of the Slashers” can be viewed at: metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse

Strange world creator Gridfailure releases latest statement I Shall Not Survive Another Winter this coming Friday for the Autumnal Equinox! No Echo is now streaming the whole recording early alongside a short interview.

Each song on I Shall Not Survive Another Winter grows longer than the one preceding it, the record further exploring full-on post-apocalyptic dementia; a vision of Post-Sixth Mass-Extinction Skullduggery which is the concept of the upcoming Teeth Collection and Drought Stick albums and several surrounding mini-releases portraying a grim vision of humanity’s future. A nearby reality where those who have survived mankind’s override by artificial intelligence, the ecological rebellion of our planet, and thermonuclear warfare amidst our own kind strive to rebuild society, and are continually thwarted. Thriving only amidst the gutters and back-alleys of a scorched culture,GRIDFAILURE’s sound reflects this impending cross-contamination of horrors.

Check it out HERE.

Clear the way: Prophets Of Rage debut out today

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 11:30 AM (PST)

We’ve been keeping you posted on Prophets Of Rage news as things led up to today’s release day for months. Let’s admit that politically engaged music is vital in these times and anyone who says otherwise is painfully out of touch. Be sure to pick up a copy today as this is important stuff and also grooves hard, of course. Chuck and Tom were great on The Daily Show the other night (watch here if you missed it). Clear the way!

Rosetta return with new full length “Utopioid”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 9:22 PM (PST)

Rosetta have consistently done interesting things, a band who have set themselves apart from a lot of trend followers in the scene to pursue less well worn paths with the same sense of wonder that makes records by, say, Boris, Kayo Dot or Russian Circles always a discovery more than a “genre based purchase”. They seem to operate strictly on their own terms, as indeed Rosetta began recording the new album as recently as late June , skipped a pre-order and will sell the digital album on a pay-what-you-want model, with more information to come about physical releases at a later date.

The Philly music community often blows me away with a sense that many of the musicians and venues really defend artistry and community over bullshit. I’d also recommend the killer End Christian release (with an insanely cool cast of characters involved) as another fresh record from the area to enjoy alongside this one. Utopioid is a wonderful play on words and makes me think of how we are drawn into so many empty promises in life that weaken us instead of focusing on building a better world together. I have no idea if that was what the band was implying as I am literally listening to this album for the first time at close to 1 am as I type this, but it certainly is already as compelling and full of melodic twists and harsh turns as their other cinematic sounding releases. Kudos!

 

Utopioid is here. We hope you enjoy it.
