ARCH ENEMY return with their first song in four years, “Deceiver, Deceiver”. Fans will surely not be disappointed by this precision, hostility driven anthem. The band remain in tremendous form and this well-crafted song is arguably more proof they are undoubtedly still in the top of the field when it comes to melodic death metal. If you need to blast someone’s ears off and feel a sense of righteous integrity, just wait until you hear this one.

Earlier today the band announced the song, as frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz said: “Surprise! We are ARCH ENEMY and we are back with our newest single ‘Deceiver, Deceiver’ which is available everywhere that you listen to music now. So go check it out and also check out our stories because we are counting down to the live music video premiere for ‘Deceiver, Deceiver’ later today, so we’ll see you there.”

VENOM PRISON to release ‘Erebos’ in early 2022

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 9:04 AM (PST)

New VENOM PRISON news? It is about time!

The celebrated extremists have announced plans to release a new full-length titled Erebos on February 4 via Century Media Records. It will surely continue to cement their place as one of the world’s most exciting heavy bands.

“Being able to work with our dear friend Eliran on another piece of art for Venom Prison has been exciting as always. Kantor knows the band perfectly well to capture our music and poetry into a visual masterpiece every single time. ‘Erebos’ was a personal one for both Eliran Kantor and ourselves. This artwork captures the moment a young person dies inside as they are surrounded by horror. In the moment their innocence is lost and desensitization will from now on fuel the repetition of the cycle of violence in their life. This is ‘Erebos’ the one born from chaos,” states Venom Prison.

Finnish melodic death metal pioneers INSOMNIUM release their brand-new song and music video for “The Wanderer” off the band’s new EP Argent Moon. Watch the music video, HERE.

 

“’The Wanderer’ is the fourth and final song on our ‘Argent Moon’ EP. Composition by Markus Vanhala and lyrics by yours truly. Our goal on this EP was to try a bit different kind of songs and in this sense I believe ‘The Wanderer’ excels. I don’t think it really resembles any other song we have done before, yet it still sounds like Insomnium. The video was shot on Suomenlinna fortress island in Helsinki,” states INSOMNIUM frontman Niilo Sevänen.

 

“The Wanderer” follows INSOMNIUM’s previously released singles “The Conjurer“, “The Reticent“ and “The Antagonist“, off of their EP Argent Moon, which was released today via Century Media Records and is available worldwide on all digital platforms and in various physical formats. Argent Moon is available as a Ltd. CD Digipak, LP+CD and as digital album. Purchase the album, HERE.

Death Metal Devilry: Bizarre and Aborted news items

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at 4:07 AM (PST)

Taking a break from enjoying Henry Rollins camp it up as Tri-Klops to give you all a little death metal fix for your weekend. I had never heard BIZARRE from Spain before this morning and am really enjoying the mix of melodic soloing with the plague ridden corpse-like weight of the marching and oppressive main, rougher sound. This band crushes!

I was especially struck by the ominous might of the beastly vocals of Mark Berserk (APOSENTO), certainly some of the most head turning death metal vocals I have heard in awhile!

Transcending Obscurity will continue their tradition of high quality releases and merchandise with the gift of darkness that shall arrive when Invocation Codex is birthed upon the unsuspecting world! You will head bang! Check out ‘Ex Oblivione’ today (or also peep the Lovecraftian death of “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” on the label Bandcamp. Along with Crypts Of Despair and Revulsion, Bizarre prove that Transcending Obscurity is right near the front of the pack in upholding the oozing, pungent legacy of death metal in 2021!

In other corpse ripping news, Belgium’s notorious ABORTED have just released their second single “Drag me to Hell” off their forthcoming album ManiaCult, which will be released worldwide on September 10th via Century Media Records. Watch the visualizer for “Drag me to Hell”, HERE. I can never think of the phrase ‘Drag me to Hell’ without thinking of the totally fucked ending of the movie!

Anyhow, this song gives literally zero shits and is not for the meek.

“Alright alright! It’s good old Jack Burton here, and he’s got one thing to say: ‘get ready for the boom stick!’ We have such sights to show you—or rather sounds to play you—with the next single from ManiaCult, ‘Drag Me to Hell’. Trust me, you’re going to want to click that button and spread it before Wayland comes for YOU,” states ABORTED about their new single “Drag Me To Hell”.

“We also welcome Filip Danielsson of Humanity’s Last Breath to the ManiaCult via a killer guest spot. Considering Wayland’s goal is the end of humanity, we’d say Filip’s support is a great harbinger…”

For more exclusive ABORTED content don´t forget to check out the bands recently launched fan group ManiaCult, HERE.

ManiaCult will be available as CD Jewelcase, Ltd. CD Box (incl. Jewelcase + bonus track, Pop-up card, Metal-Pin & shaped patch), Deluxe Gatefold LP+CD & Poster in various colors and of course on all digital platforms. Pre-orders are available, HERE.

Progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD have just announced a Kickstarter campaign to fundraise for the continuation of their documentary film We Are Connected. The band have joined forces with metal film director Felipe Belalcázar, who most recently directed the critically acclaimed Chuck Schuldiner documentary DEATH by Metal. Check out and contribute to this very special VOIVOD project, HERE.

 

“We have worked with Felipe in other projects, and we have a mutual understanding of VOIVOD’s story,” says drummer Michel “Away” Langevin. Exclusive interviews and archive access combined with Away’s artwork will take you on a sci-fi, thrash-metal journey into the VOIVOD dimension. “We managed to film about a quarter of the interviews planned before the pandemic hit in March 2020, and plan to resume production once cross-border restrictions are lifted,” states Felipe about directing VOIVOD’s We Are Connected.

Forge Your Future is a fitting name for the pending August EP release one of the most celebrated melodic modern metal bands has on deck. More than most bands in the genre, Spirit Adrift have ensured their longevity by giving every release 100% molten conviction and, to quote old school Classic Loki, “glorious purpose”.

Spirit Adrift guitarist/vocalist Nate Garrett comments, “On March 1, 2020, I relocated to the woods outside of Austin, Texas. Two weeks later, everything was locked down. I turned to the thing that has helped me navigate difficult situations for most of my life: writing music. I wrote and demoed a ton of songs over the course of the pandemic. The songs on this E.P. are the best of the bunch. Marcus, Preston, and I recorded these in March of 2021 at Homewrecker Recording Studio with Ryan Bram at the helm. Zeuss handled mixing and mastering, after lengthy discussions about Martin Birch, Tom Allom, Crowbar, and how important it is to carry forth the essence and spirit of heavy metal. Special thanks to our friend Cody Davis for the brilliant title.” He continues, “These songs, and this band, represent persevering through difficult times, staying true to your innermost self, and celebrating the life-affirming power of metal. We can’t wait to see you all live and in the flesh, in the meantime we hope you enjoy the tunes.”

Forge Your Future will be available August 27th from Century Media on vinyl and digital formats. Pre-orders are available now. Get the Fuego variant, though.

1. Forge Your Future

BALA has come to shake you out of you complacency! The  Galicia, Spain duo is Anxela Baltar (vocals, guitars) and Violeta Mosquera (vocals, drums), wielding heavy grooves and catchy but determined and anarchic vocals to excellent effect. I detect some L7 crunch and wolfish glee mixed with Breeders level melodic command, if more spiteful. In short, this fucking rips!

(Gothenburg, Sweden – April 1, 2021) – Swedish melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES announces their new full-length album The Nightmare Of Being today. The album is set for release on July 2nd via Century Media Records.

 

While main parts for The Nightmare Of Being were recorded in several different Swedish studios (drums at Studio Gröndal with Jens Bogren, guitars and bass with Andy La Rocque at Sonic Train Studio and vocals at Welfare Sounds with Per Stålberg), the album was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Amon Amarth, Opeth, Kreator, etc.) by Jens Bogren, who previously worked with AT THE GATES on their 2014 comeback album At War With Reality. The album’s visual concept and album cover was developed by artist Eva Nahon.

 

“The overall theme deals with the topic of pessimism, and I have been diving deep down in pessimistic philosophers. Trying to understand this way of looking at the world. It is not a negative album, more a gateway into new ideas for me personally, trying out different perspectives. You could call the album an introduction to pessimism as a concept, I guess. It is a very dark album, but not negative,” states AT THE GATES vocalist Tomas Lindberg Redant about the album concept.

 

Musically The Nightmare Of Being unveils a newly liberated and adventurous AT THE GATES with some of the bravest and most mesmerizing material they have ever written. Lindberg Redant adds, “It still sounds like AT THE GATES, 100 percent. It is just more of everything.”

 

The Nightmare Of Being Tracklist:
1. Spectre of Extinction
2. The Paradox
3. The Nightmare of Being
4. Garden of Cyrus
5. Touched by the White Hands of Death
6. The Fall into Time
7. Cult of Salvation
8. The Abstract Enthroned
9. Cosmic Pessimism
10. Eternal Winter of Reason

 

Further details about The Nightmare Of Being, its various formats, and pre-order will be revealed on April 30th. Mark your calendars!

THE CROWN release “We Drift On” video

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 8:06 AM (PST)

Photo credit: Ida Kucera

THE CROWN are going to absolutely clobber this year with their Royal Destroyer release. Today you can hear the majesty of “We Drift On” (directed by Christoffer Tönnäng and Oskar Norberger), a minacious yet resolute tune that has an accompanying video full of unpleasant inward thoughts.

Guitarist Marko Tervonen comments: “I think that after 30 years, people are aware that we can play pretty brutal music. But we also sometimes like to take it down a notch and explore other areas. I guess in 2021, it’s pretty difficult to ‘surprise’ people with a brutal song, so we hope to surprise you with this more mellow tune. Dare I even use the word ‘ballad’ *insert-fear-here*
Ok. Lean back, drift on and enjoy.”

Uh, don’t worry dude. It still sounds pretty damn heavy and very metal.


“It is our album number ten, so now we are in the big boys club,” says bassist Magnus Olsfelt. “I think it in some ways is our crowning achievement, and it encompasses our sound across all albums on one defining record. It’s got it all – the early 90s death metal stuff, the haunting melodies, the thrash, the punk, the grind, the heavy metal and the more epic and doomy stuff.”

Together with legendary producer Fredrik Nordström, the band tracked the resulting 10 songs at Gothenburg’s Studio Fredman. “We push ourselves to the limit, really trying to make everything as good as it can get, trying to make every song as impactful as possible,” Olsfelt states. While he believes that people need to hear the album themselves to be able to accurately describe it, Olsfelt also asserts that The Crown have achieved something that makes for a “continuous whole” – while being diverse. There are also some surprises in store for fans. “We have some of the most intense stuff ever, like one song is about one minute long, and we also have a ballad!”

Royal Destroyer track-listing
1. Baptized in Violence
2. Let the Hammering Begin!
3. Motordeath
4. Ultra Faust
5. Glorious Hades
6. Full Metal Justice
7. Scandinavian Satan
8. Devoid of Light
9. We Drift On
10. Beyond the Frail

CALIBAN to release German-language album ‘Zeitgeister’

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 6:41 AM (PST)

One of my personal favorite metalcore bands ever, Germany’s CALIBAN have released many rock solid examples of the genre and worked hard to keep the sound both meaningful and alive in the scene through hard work and valuable, emotionally resonant material. They balance heavy and catchy better than most bands doing that contrast, as well.

Now the band are doing something cool I think they ought to be applauded for, re-recording a bunch of tunes in their native German. I think it is problematic when band’s feel like they can only sing in English because of capitalism and the market share. Hey, wasn’t “Despacito”  like the biggest YouTube played video ever? Maybe we should be encouraging more education and culture exchange rather than normalizing English constantly being centered?

From the press release:

It took German metalcore vets, CALIBAN, recording a cover of Rammstein’s “Sonne” to realize that their native tongue was a seamless fit with their time-tempered collision of punishing riffs and Andreas Dörner’s urgent vocals. With fans hungry for the Essen-borne quintet to record an album exclusively in German, the band simply said, “Why not?”, and Zeitgeister, which will be released on May 14th, was born.

11 genre-defining LPs deep into their career, the band’s vision for the album came naturally – a career retrospective and deep-dive into CALIBAN favorites that haven’t had been seen live in some time.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but once we allowed us to make them as different from the originals as we felt it was needed it came fairly naturally”, explains guitarist and main songwriter Marc Görtz. Of course, some updating was necessary when it came to translating the songs to German. “It turned out to be surprisingly tricky,” states Dörner. “While I feel more at home with my native German it made it a lot more complicated, as I had more options to phrase something.”

Formed in 1997, CALIBAN’s legacy has been a tireless one, touring the globe and sharing stages with the likes of Kreator, Killswitch Engage and Dark Tranquillity just to mention a few. Zeitgeister was a welcome homecoming. With the help of long-running producer Benjamin Richter (Moonspell, Emil Bulls) CALIBAN hand-picked seven tracks to bring new life to:

“Trauma” (feat. Matthi from Nasty, originally “Arena Of Concealment”)
“Herz” (originally “I Will Never Let You Down”)
“Ausbruch nach Innen” (originally “Tyranny Of Small Misery”)
“Feuer, zieh’ mit mir” (originally “Between The Worlds”)
“Nichts ist für immer” (originally “All I Gave”)
“Intoleranz” (originally “Intolerance”)
“Mein Inferno” (originally “My Little Secret”)
“Zeitgeister” also boasts a new track, “nICHts”.
Stay tuned for Pre Orders and more info!

Talking Star Wars today because I am a giant Star Wars nerd and because this topic overlaps with a few things I also need to educate some of you moronic Iced Earth apologists for Jon’s coup attempt antics on.

If there was a complete “war on Republicans” being hired I am pretty sure Disney+ would have never hired Gina Carano in the first place for two seasons on one of the biggest buzzed about tv shows of all time. The former (haha) Mandalorian star was dropped for her comments online comparing Republicans being rightfully critiqued for enabling the white supremacist coup attempt of Donald Trump and cronies to the plight of Jews in the fucking Holocaust. Her post (which I am not including) argued that the government made them hate their neighbors, similar to now. It also included it was not Nazis that hurt Jews in the streets but their neighbors, a point skipped right over by morons like Paul Joseph Watson and Jack Posobiec. Go kiss up to Billy Corgan some more, Jack. Or maybe not because I love The Smashing Pumpkins and it was miserably depressing when Billy went on Alex Jones. We don’t need that shit again, especially with the art of the new SP record looking like Italian Futurism.

It is not “the government” making people dislike the GOP now and nothing they are enduring is comparable to the lead up to the Holocaust. People dislike the GOP because of their own choices and bedfellows. It’s not a smear campaign or remotely like Hitler spreading xenophobia to criticize the party Gina ignores the glaring wrongheadedness and bigotry of.

Gina was fired for being a moron, not “just” being a Republican. Personally, I think all Republicans are ahistorical morons who ignore the Southern Strategy while saying their party aren’t racist and that Trump was better for blacks than anyone and who still think Trickle Down is great even as fifty year studies (and the memories of anyone who suffered under it) prove it only helps create Robber Baron types. But these are not bright people. Trump is raising the rates at his hotel the day the Q morons think he is “coming back” in March and they STILL can’t see the fucking grift?!! LMAO.

I am sure Tucker Carlson is aching to book Gina on his show where he will most likely weaponize the identity politics he says he hates and paint her as a huge victim and a wronged woman dealt with harshly by “cancel culture”. Just stop. Gina, Ariel Pink and Tucker can re-evaluate their wack af public statements and allegiances as well as personal choices and then maybe come back to reality where private companies do not have to operate by giving you a free pass for whatever you do off camera or the recording booth.

Seriously, clowns need to chill. She actually got free passes already for transphobia, Covid denial and coup attempt disinformation, by my count. That seems like a lot of strikes for me for a sub par actress who could be replaced by a zillion other characters in the galaxy (the superior talents and actually decent and worthy humans Lucy Lawless and my favorite choice Lana Parrilla have both been mentioned by stans as possible actresses to recast Cara Dune with, if at all).

James Gunn got hired back because he was ACTUALLY apologetic for harm he had caused in the past and didn’t triple down on himself as a victim. Star Wars also is rightfully trying to do better by having more non-binary characters in canon or visibly gay characters like Sinjir Rath Velus and hopefully the tv shows moving forward with a diverse cast will make up for the poor handling of the Rose and Finn-era and their essential sidelining in The Rise Of Skywalker. Disney+ needs to give Boyega his own Finn series and fix the development arc of this awesome character who should be a full black Jedi pansexual poly king we need.

Tangent: I don’t mind that Poe and Finn or Rose and Finn or Rey and Finn didn’t end up together as much as I am annoyed they didn’t develop Finn’s force sensitivity plot fully. Jannah and Finn meeting and having some chemistry right away made me think about how as a former trooper super stoked to be free and allowed to not be a space fascist, Finn seemed like a super impressionable person who just “crushed” hard on everyone at first. Maybe he was polyamorous? I actually dug that he wasn’t firmly attached with someone – despite how cool the Poe/Finn ship is (my fave for him) – because it is also ok to not always be paired up in life and/or to be finding yourself. Or to just be friends and have found family. There are plenty of my friends who I have hooked up with before who I know would not be compatible in the long run, y’know?

Anyway, from mocking pronouns as unimportant to her unabashed pathetic inability to look inward at the real problem, Gina had to go. Star Wars is still trying to make up for some of the bad Asian and Jewish stereotypes in some of the prequel characters (Watto, for example). They aren’t probably keen on letting a moron like Gina run around and ruin some of the best goodwill Star Wars has had in ages.

Will Healy for The Motley Fool (not a Crüe fan blog, fyi) wrote recently: “Disney also faced a backlash as it filmed Mulan in the Chinese territory of Xinjiang, a site of alleged human rights abuses. ESPN management has come under fire in the past for discouraging staff from publicly discussing the NBA’s strained relationship with China stemming from comments about Hong Kong.”

The only FAIR Republican talking point I have seen come out of this whole shitshow is that Disney needs to stop pandering so much to Xi and China’s market if they care about human rights abuses, since they literally have huge re-education camps there for Uighur Muslims.  That should not be allowed to become just a right wing talking point. Leftists often like to pivot to ICE detention in the USA if you bring it up. Guess what?! Both are fucking bad! That is reality. I felt the same way about Taylor Swift headlining Alibaba Singles Day during the Hong Kong democracy protests or her headlining Amazon Prime Day with Dua Lipa during a worker’s strike.

I don’t think Western culture by any means should have zero involvement with China like we are only “good guys”, but there has to be some ethical stance-taking when there are concentration camps involved. Just like Amazon needed to be called out by the No Music For ICE movement.

The Chinese government has imprisoned more than one million people since 2017 and subjected those not detained to intense surveillance, religious restrictions, and forced sterilizations. Tankies like to downplay that shit and also pretend Mao was great (he sucked ass and was a monster and so was Stalin, sorry losers). I am a very progressive demiflux metalhead who supports Antifa and I can still point out reality and not cape for every communist dictator or authoritarian just because of some alleged overlap. I want social democracy, not gaslighting.

So yeah, I think Disney is not going away but must be engaged with. Return Of The Jedi is intrinsically tied to my memories of my dad and me and so I will fight hard to try and get the company to do better. Which in a tiny way it just did.

So yeah…bye, Gina. Bye Ariel. Hopefully Trump, Tucker, Hannity and all the other self-aggrandizing pieces of shit will be out of our faces soon as well. While there must be balance to the Force, there is no balance in allowing disinformation to run out of control and unchallenged. This is the way.

Hello all you mad, grandiose bloodfiends and welcome to the first fucking day the United States has ever had a woman VP! I don’t want to hear purity politics right now. It is a historic milestone and there are a hell of a lot worse people than Kamala who could have gotten in there. We have to work together to keep the Dems moving in a progressive direction but it is possible. Do NOT tell me that the 15 executive orders Biden signed into law today RIGHT AWAY (with the New Radicals and Gaga still ringing in our ears) are just “eXaCtLY ThE SaME aS ThE GoP”. That is privileged nonsense beyond belief, especially when the faketriots just tried to stage a literal unjustified coup over their fake election fraud nonsense and we are now BACK in the Paris Agreement. Millions will soon have a viable path to citizenship. Sit down and eat your food.

On that note, I keep seeing idiots who still back the twice impeached loser (who simpered away sullenly to the tune of YMCA) saying online in Trump’s defense that he “never started a war”. I think almost starting a fucking civil war HERE counts! And as if he didn’t ruin the nuclear deal with Iran and assassinated a top leader and pushed them into China’s arms and bombed Yemen just a little bit as well (killing an infant girl from the jump). Oh, and abandoned allies in Syria. Pardoning Kodak Black doesn’t make up for you pardoning Steve Bannon who wants to incite a xenophobic race war either, asshole.

On that note a little bit more, bye bye Iced Earth. Like complete moron Ariel Pink (who says “life isn’t fair” about homeless people but whines about being dropped by his label for supporting a fascist), Iced Earth have been dropped from Century Media’s artist page.

Jon is a talented as hell musician and a completely gullible idiot who doubled down on bad takes time and time again until it led him into the six criminal charges he now faces. What a massive fucking letdown. Stu Block and the band’s lukewarm responses have been weak sauce as well. You all should have quit the band and issued a “fuck him” statement. It is also weak, much as I love a ton of Century Media bands and their PR people are awesome folks, that the label declined to comment to Metal Injection. They should have said they are 100% not here for his bullshit either.

Maybe I sound harsh to some of you? Well, it is pretty awful seeing loved ones or people in your community or families fall down the Q rabbit hole of utter dogshite. Seeing it rot their logic and fact checking abilities and destroy families. Seeing it ruin musicians you once admired past the point of no return. We have tried to help many of you and it is ok to have boundaries. There must be a firm stance about this shit. Marina Abramović is cooler than all of you and a Storm is most definitely NOT coming. Except legally for orange fucko.

Winter’s Verge have released a new video for “Blood On The Foam” from The Ballad Of James Tig release. Fans of Alestorm, Wuthering Heights or even Delain and Manowar will thrill to this Cyprus band’s powerful heavy metal soundtrack to questing! Let the melodic and lively tune wash over you like the ocean’s spray (not a juice commercial, duh).

Since its formation in 2005, the band has so far released 4 full studio albums and 3 Eps and built a strong reputation as one of the most exciting live acts in Cyprus, with a powerful blend of epic, melodic and symphonic metal. The band is made up of 6 of the most experienced and respected musicians in the Cypriot rock and metal scene – George Charalambous on vocals, Deniel Pavlovsky and Savvas Parperi on guitars, Stavry Michael on keys, Miguel Trapezaris on bass and Danny Georgiou on drums.

Lastly today, the first full length release from San Diego death metal outfit Putrescine. The Fading Flame will be available March 26 on vinyl, CD, and cassette from Tridroid Records! Putrescine’s dissonant, churning death metal makes no secret of their influences; fans of Carcass, Morbid Angel, and At the Gates will find much to enjoy, and the band continues to use imagery from video games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne to frame issues of antifascism, personal trauma, and queer radicalism.

That’s it for today, lovers. Remember: Frenemies
Who when you’re down, ain’t your friend…
Every night we smash a Mercedes-Benz
