MEPHORASH is a black metal band hailing from Sweden featuring members of Malign, ex Ofermod. Their new album has been just released by Odium Records and it’s divided into 4 hymns which serves as a luminescent focal point for the fourfold rite of nullification of the four primal elements. Each track of the album features additional vocals from the vocalists of Malign, Hetroertzen, Embrace of Thorns and Fides Inversa.
Abhorrent Deformity is a young and talented brutal death metal band from North Carolina and their new/debut album Entity of Malevolence is going to be released on October 30th via Comatose Music. The debut album is crushing and I sent the band a couple of questions that I had and Dave Wright (bass) and Mark De Gruchy (vocals) were kind enough to answer them for me. Enjoy the read and be sure to jam their new song “Entity of Malevolence”, the title track from their new album!!!
Show Me Wolves is a one man Icelandic black metal band that released something magical recently and the man in charge was generous enough to let me stream the release in full on the YouTube channel! A free download that you absolutely need to grab right now!
Mortal Torment’s new album Cleaver Redemption drops this fall and we’re lucky enough to show off the first sample of what these brutal death metal bastards can do. This song is fucking intense. Enjoy. Be on the look out for this album on Gore House Productions later this year!
Slayer has released a new song today and they try to capture those moments of fear with slower riffing, traditional Slayer melodies and Araya screaming at you about the typical shit he has screamed for the past 30 years. The song is okay in my book, having lost 50% of it’s band members since the last record I would have thought they would release a true headbanging track with fierce riffing and angry solos. However, I was wrong.
I am proud & honored that Gore House Productions are letting Headbang or GTFO premiere the new lyric video for the Hideous Rebirth’s “Wretched Torture”! The track closes their new album “Completely Devoured” and it features a hilarious introduction but the music is heavy as hell. I hope you are ready to headbang because this song is crushing. If you enjoy the massive riffs and vocal hell of Troglodyte, early Cattle Decapitation and Disgorge then you’ll love Hideous Rebirth!
After four years of silence, avant norse folk metal duo, SOLEFALD, return with Norrønasongen. Kosmopolis Nord, an experimental soundtrack to the fjords and mountains of Norway, and a hymn to the nature of the North. A prequel to the eclectic duo’s forthcoming Kosmopolis Sud full-length set for release next year, Norrønasongen. Kosmopolis Nord was created for release on vinyl, boasts a crew totaling ten musicians and finds SOLEFALD venturing into new and unfamiliar soundscapes.
The Ukrainian 4 piece “math-core” band known as Septa released a wild album back in October and I think they are definitely worth checking out. An experimental take on alternative rock, hardcore and sludge with thick bass lines, raunchy vocal work and oddly timed yet heavy guitar work.
Cesspits is the tits, Napalm Death somehow defy everything when it comes to older bands releasing new content by sustaining high amounts of energy, alarmingly fast drumming and riffs, fiery vocals and a tempo that makes me want to smash everything in my room….all within 3 minutes and 33 seconds. God damn 2015 is off to a phenomenal start.
A crude album title, a silly picture for artwork and a killer song: Black Sheep Wall sure know how to make a return to the public with new material don’t they? Want more? You have to wait til January 27th on Season of Mist. The song “White Pig” can be found on the new BSW album called “I’m Going To Kill Myself”, which makes the artwork that much more hilarious. Besides the album art and name, the song itself is clinically depressing and crushing. A little repetitive yet it gives it a soulless and gloomy feeling to it. The sludge filled doom riffing over the crashing drumming and loud vocal work really worked well with me and I liked what I heard.
