Portugal’s most recognised death metal act, Annihilation, are self-releasing their new EP The Undivided on November 4th, 2014. Founded in early 2004, this six-track release of overpowering metal is the band’s follow-up to the 2010 debut, Against The Storm (Copro/Casket Records). A single from the EP, “The Great Cycle”, was released as a digital download a few months ago and a lyric video.

Magic Bullet Records will deliver one of the most corrosive sludge/doom releases of the year with the somewhat unexpected self-titled debut and incurably bleak and sinister awakening and introduction to the world of Boston’s newest heavy music titan, WORMWOOD.
For those who love their black metal filled with death and death metal filled with blackness, then you know the name of this band for sure. Their incredibly fast riffing, drum work and treacherous vocals bring forth terror to those who are looking for it. Belphegor’s last album was highly regarded in my book. The songs were evil, catchy and it had the perfect blend of black metal and death metal to make things ultra sinister. I am a massive fan of Behemoth and Belphegor is just like them in many ways…only sped up.
I’m going to admit first and foremost that the only reason why I even became interested in this band is because Michael Lessard joined them. I have buddies who dig this band and when I heard one of my favorite vocalists was apart of their team now….I suppose I became a fan by default. Lessard won me over with two phenomenal albums with Last Chance to Reason and now here I am again expecting to be fully engaged and falling in love with the album just like I did with LC2R’s Level 2 and Level 3. Is The Contortionist going to pull me in and make me want to listen to them over and over? Will this be one of my favorite albums of 2014?
