Moirae has one song up from a 2012 EP, which unfortunately is out of the time frame for “2013″ proper reviews. However, It’ll be ridiculous to write a formal review for one single song anyways. However, this one single track known as “Ascent” by Moirae is pretty damn good. These guys need to come together and write a full length album because this one track alone has me sold.

Head on over to Portal Rockline and stream the newest track from the legendary NIN. The song is very bassy, has a groove to it and the synth is definitely present. It has a touch of Pretty Hate Machine, The Downward Spiral and Year Zero all in one. Trent is definitely trying to capture those earlier moments, yet it just sounds like a continuation of his later years. I dig the track quite a bit actually. Time to listen to this over and over all day! Listen to the new NIN song “Came Back Haunted” here!
Chimaira’s new album, Crown of Phantoms, will be out July 30th on Eone Entertainment. Their recent IndieGoGo campaign was more than successful and you’ll be seeing much more from this band in the near future. Check out the teaser video below!
In anticipation of their upcoming album’s release, WHITE WIZZARD is now streaming this new effort, The Devils Cut, in full online. Due out on June 25th in the USA via Century Media/Earache Records, The Devils Cut can be heard in its entirety here:
Three heavy hitting blackened punk songs from Montreal, Canada! Voidtrip is something you must experience. The production is lacking slightly, but I’ve heard way worse from “Professional” bands so this is still tolerable. Actually, the production is admired as it adds another element of pure raw “fuck yeah, this is metal” to the track. Voidtrip is pretty damn good and I want to hear much more from them. Listen to them on Bandcamp and enjoy a free download!!!!
Their Bandcamp says they are legendary but I’ve yet to hear of these guys before. So let’s listen and see just how legendary these guys are. First track is an instrumental introduction and then the music dives right in on the first real song “Dragon Dispitous”. Yeah, it’s some good black metal. The production is a little muddy but it’s still kvlt, evil and blasphemous. Their overall sound is definitely quality black metal as the vocalist has that raspy high end screech, the blast beats are a plenty and the guitars riff away. Atmospheric, punishing and relentless. Yeah, I’d say Nazxul is damn good at what they do.
I’m going to listen to an album and just tell you what I think as it’s playing. Sort of like an album review but not really as it wasn’t submitted to me properly. This was something I found while exploring the endless bank of music over there at Bandcamp. I came across this metalcore album by a band known as Dethrone The Sovereign, a band I’ve never heard of before. The opening track is an instrumental and it’s highly interesting and very enjoyable. “The Manchurian Waltz” is very well done and it has a very progressive sound to it. It’s good so far! However, I wonder how the vocals sound…
19 covers from 19 different bands and artists come together to form this wonderful tribute cover album of great Woods of Ypres tracks. I’m not usually into cover albums but I’ll listen to them from time to time and this one is especially good. These guys did these songs a great amount justice and they sound magnificent!!! Well done my friends!!!!!
ASTAROT gives you what you desire when you want to kill yourself, yet also gives you something to live for as well. The band hails from Mexico, one of the most war ridden countries in the world right now, so his inspiration is real. Only two songs can be previewed on his Bandcamp currently but they are incredibly good songs. Listen now, feel inspired.
Bandcamp, it sure has it’s moments. One thing I immediately clicked on was this tribute to Deftones’ self titled album in loving memory of the late Chi Cheng. The mix of bands are ones I’ve never heard of but they do a pretty damn good job and give each song a little twist. Check it out! Hell if you like it, download it! The album is FREE.
Here is some new music from Queens of the Stone Age. New album …Like Clockwork to be released on June 4th 2013.
Matt Tybor, screamer/singer for The Bunny The Bear (He’s the bunny), showed me his side project, A Liar Wrote This Symphony, and I truly dug it. Listening to the first song on this playlist called “Curtain Call”, Matt brings back his tragic screams to the track, however the main hook is him singing and it just goes to show that he truly can sing. It’s a different direction, a direction I approve, and if something were to happen and TBTB had to call it quits, Matt needs to definitely focus on this work. He has something going on over here with A Liar Wrote This Symphony. Click here to listen!
New Chimaira footage has surfaced. The guys are now currently on tour with Asking Alexandria, Motionless In White and Whitechapel. What do you think of the new song? Also, have you seen the new IndieGoGo campaign for Chimaira’s new album?
After a weekend of bad news and the bullshit that happened in Boston yesterday, I’ve been feeling shitty. Ignorance comes out of people in times like this and the faith in humanity dwindles down closer and closer to absolute zero. However, Scale the Summit come in this morning and blast this new song called “Odyssey” and it’s absolute breathtaking, inspiring and uplifting. It’s exactly what my soul needed and might I suggest listening to it several times this morning. Yes, it’s that good.
Amon Amarth are streaming their title track off of their brand new album “Deceiver of the Gods”!!! It’s packed full of Norse greatness as Johan and Co smash through another great song. I love the intro, each section has an awesome riff, Johan’s vocals have never sounded better and the production is done very well. Amon Amarth are as powerful as ever and Deceiver of the Gods is proof!!! Listen to the new song over at AmonAmarth.com!!
New Jersey metallers Beyond Dishonor was recently passed my way and I must say, this is something I can get down to. After one single listen to one single song I immediately went to their Facebook page and gave them a like. This song jams and I’d love to review this album if the band gets a hold of me (cough, hint, cough). The writing is not predictable and monotonous like most metalcore/hardcore acts and vocalist Reese Dunlap is a set of lungs man, his screams are gnarly!!!! Watch the new music video they just released “Heisenberg” and see for yourself!!!!
