The post RINGS OF SATURN Not Playing Anything From Lugal Ki En On Upcoming Tour appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
“It’s not a very well known fact, but every member of our band lives in a different state in the U.S. And because of the distance and conflicting schedules between everyone, we actually haven’t had ANY time at all to practice the new songs as a band in a full band setting. We didn’t want people coming out to the shows expecting to hear new material and being disappointed so we wanted to let everyone know that we will not be playing any new songs on this next month and a half long run with ABRB and Mexico. Sorry to disappoint those who were looking forward to that but we still encourage everyone to come out and support all the bands. We also will be carrying the new CD and merch for those of you who would like to get it from us in person. Thanks for being understanding, we plan on playing a bunch of new material on future tours.”
As a fan of the band and the new album, that sucks pretty hard. What do you think?

The post THORR-AXE: Indiana-Based Blackened Doom Quartet Announces New Album, Gates Of Winter; Preorders Available Now appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
“Cold, frosty doom” act Thorr-Axe is a raiding party comprised of four guys with a mutual love of heavy music who belch forth tales of dragons, wizards, frost giants, and vikings putting axes through people’s skulls. A party of the blackest kind, which the Sleeping Shaman once referred to as “a crushing rifforama that boldly sets all axes to bludgeon-mode,” and every metal head with a black heart and a wry smile is invited.
1. Open The Gates
2. The Seer’s Vision
3. Four Hooves
4. Mountain Crusher
5. The Forging Ritual
CD preorders of Gates Of Winter are available now at THIS LOCATION.
Praise for Thorr-Axe’s 2011 debut album, Wall Of Spears:
“Put simply, this 9-song showcase is a feast of continent-sized riffs. Imagine The Sword taking on Amon Amarth for a late night Dungeons and Dragons battle with Matt Pike on hand to drink beer and advise The Sword on its strategy and you’re pretty much there.”
- Pete Green, The Sleeping Shaman
“Wall Of Spears invokes a raging world of wizards and warriors, hell-breathing dragons and a nice cold beer or 50 to celebrate the smashing of the enemy’s skull under the double-edged blade. This is the kind of record that sneaks up on unsuspecting souls before unleashing a Viking hammer between the eyes.”
- Nate Vaught, Forbidden Magazine
Tucker Thomasson: Guitar/ Vocals
Mitchell McKinney: Guitar
Garrett Daniels: Bass

Over two and a half decades, EYEHATEGOD have helped define the NOLA sound: down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the demonic screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section. Though it was a long time between riffs, EYEHATEGODreemerged stronger and more determined than ever before with their chart-topping, self-titled studio offering and first full-length in nearly fifteen years. Released in May via Housecore, Eyehategodpersonifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the N’awlins sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity. Eyehategod is an exclamation mark on an already storied career, a statement of rebirth, catharsis, self-preservation and a sign of things to come.
“…a stomping and venomous set of eleven tracks that reignite the band’s amazing propensity for down-trodden, electric blues.” – Noisey
“…their most entertaining release since 1996′s Dopesick…urgent and raw, as if the band hasn’t aged a day.” – Consequence Of Sound
“To say that this album is ‘a triumphant return,’ or ‘the album we’ve all been waiting for’ are elephantine understatements. This album holds its own against some of the best of their canon and that alone makes it one of the best metal albums you’ll hear this year.” – Metal Insider
“There are brilliant riffs, moments of barely contained aural violence and, most memorably of all, the ever-distinctive vocals of Mike IX Williams… a worthy addition to the band’s already impenetrable legacy.” — Stereoboard

The post LAE: American Aftermath Posts Single From Debut LP By Montreal-Based Post-Rock Outfit; CD Preorders Available appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
The diverse track, “Sister,” shows both the beautiful, peaceful delivery and accessible elements this crew of fantastic songwriters display through the entire album. It also reveals the polar opposite second personality of LAE, as the clean guitars, organs and vocals give way to wounding, caustic vocals and massive-sounding electric guitar riffs thundering through the mix. “Sister” has been posted at American Aftermath, who extensively interrogates LAE‘s founding songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Marc Lucas Ablasou, on the band’s storied history and why Break The Clasp was over two decades in the making, as well as quotes from Austin, who not only serves as the lead vocalist on the entire album, also fully recorded and produced Break The Clasp. The write-up issues of the track, “The song echoes psychedelic progressive rock and post-rock but the overall picture is far more expansive. The song, as well as the album in general, is wholly unique and escapes categorization.”
Take the ride and delve into the world of LAE with “Sister” and more RIGHT HERE.
A trailer for Break The Clasp with clips from several of the album’s thirteen tracks is also playing HERE.
Break The Clasp will see release through The Compound and Battleground Records via digital download and 6-panel digipak November 25th, and a deluxe 180-gram double LP in February 2015 as the band begins touring throughout North America. CD preorders are now available via Earsplit Distro HERE, and digital preorders via BandCamp will be made available on Halloween.
Performing under their original moniker, LAE-TSEU, the outfit now known as LAE impacted the Quebec art and post-hardcore/emo/indie circuits in the apocalypse-ready Y2K era of the mid 1990s. In mid-2013, the band went through an incredible rebirth, completely re-envisioning their original songs with new life knowledge and a ravenous hunger to make them better than ever. To capture this soundtrack, the band contracted Steve Austin (Today Is The Day), flying him and an arsenal of gear from his Austin Enterprises from Maine to record in Ablasou’s wood shop, utilizing acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet, saws, multiple electric organs and pianos and more to capture their long-awaited full-length, fully recorded on an arsenal of vintage analog equipment. However, during the recording process, Austin ended up performing lead vocals to the entire album in addition to other musical contributions. Mastered at Austin Enterprises and enshrouded with artwork by Sonny Kay (The VSS, Angel Hair, Gold Standard Laboratories label), LAE‘s Break The Clasp will finally see release. Encompassing nearly fifty-three minutes of unearthly, heartbreaking, psychedelic audio artistry, while fans of Three Mile Pilot, Swans, Sonic Youth, Unwound, Slint, Shellac and more will be instantly hooked by these tales of love, devotion and loss, Break The Clasp is an incredible experience, the record unfathomably original and unlike anything you’ll experience this year.

The post PRIMORDIAL: Dublin Metal Troupe Unveils New Tune At Stereogum appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
Praised by Pitchfork for their fastidiously composed “folk and black metal-inflected classic metal that spirals and extends and, somehow, keeps getting bigger,” Where Greater Men Have Fallen serves as the follow-up to PRIMORDIAL‘s globally adored, 2011-released Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand long player and their eighth studio offering overall. An eight track, fifty-eight minute magnum opus, Where Greater Men Have Fallen was recorded at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma) and delivers some of the band’s deepest, most methodically arranged, thematically profound and plainly gripping compositions of their winding catalog of sonic enormity.
Gushes Stereogum of “Come The Flood,” “Frontman Alan Averill (aka A.A. Nemtheanga) is a firebrand, channeling a mythic vision of humanity’s pain through a personal lens of frustration, resulting in a swaggering, staggering bellow that would sound absurd out of context, but instead comes off absurdly powerful. It’s pure theater, but closer to Macbeth than anything else. ‘Come The Flood’ is the second single off Where Greater Men Have Fallen, following the crushing title track, which came out a couple weeks back. “Come The Flood” takes a different tack, lacing jangling minor-key guitars and spoken word throughout its 7-minute runtime before exploding in the second half, embodying the biblical fire and cathartic rain it describes with sonic force. Like the first single, the results are beyond what we’ve come to expect from … anything, really.“
Experience the near-eight-minute epic “Come The Flood” HERE.
Where Greater Men Have Fallen will be released on November 25th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Visit http://www.metalblade.com/primordial where you’ll find a lyric video for the title track as well as a gaggle of preorder options. The record will come available on CD and on vinyl in various color variants. Additionally, Where Greater Men Have Fallen will be released in a limited European deluxe edition wood boxset which includes a CD+DVD digibook, an exclusive 7″, a leather wristband, a poster and a certificate of authenticity.

‘Hey guys, here’s the first song from Sky Blue, it’s called Rejoice. The album in general is about fighting through the ugly moments, and I think this song kind of summarizes it.

The post Job for a Cowboy debut “Eating the Visions of God” via Metal Sucks appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
Producer Jason Suecof, vocalist Jonny Davy, guitarists Al Glassman and Tony Sannicandro, bassist Nick Schendzielos, and session drummer Danny Walker have crafted a cerebral and accomplished piece of technical death metal. Job for a Cowboy wrapped up touring in 2013 as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival that summer. Following that performance, the band collectively decided to sharpen their focus and set an intent on cooking up a record that encompassed their full dynamic range of talent. The group had all agreed on the main course being a desire for futuristic tones, a wider spectrum of textures and tempos, and an emphasis on slightly more ancestral song construction. The result, “Sun Eater,” does not just sound like a new record, it sounds like an entirely new band.
Listen to “Sun of Nihility” and pre-order the album now at metalblade.com/jobforacowboy.
Audiohammer producer Jason Suecof, whose first bout with the band was 2009′s “Ruination,” has now worked with the band for over six years. Few are more familiar with how Job for a Cowboy operates in the studio than Suecof, and he was also feeling the “vibe” on “Sun Eater“: “This band is composed entirely of top notch musicians all the way around and they are clearly at the top of their game. This new album is a stellar combination of everyone’s efforts and what we have now is something that conveys everyone’s musicianship without being techy for the sake of being tech. This album has got feeling and it is fucking brutal!“
Sun Eater will be available via Metal Blade Records on November 11th in North America and November 7th/10th in Europe/UK

The post Vesania debuts new song “Dismay” via Revolver Magazine! appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
Orion comments on “Dismay“: “I often hear the opinion, and I agree with it – this album has no “single,” each track is different, has its own atmosphere and is equally important for the overall impression. “Dismay” is the song we started the recordings with, and this is the one that best defines the ‘rock’ sound of “Deus Ex Machina.” “Dismay” is relatively slower, sounds progressive, rather than black metal, and it adds a breath of air between the more intense songs. This is also the particular track, where the “god from the machine” from the album title is mentioned and comes down to earth.“
Fans can stream “Innocence” and pre-order copies of the album now at metalblade.com/vesania.
Orion – guitars and voices
Daray – drums
Siegmar – synths and samples
Heinrich – bass
Valeo – guitars
Vesania‘s roots are firmly planted in Poland, but their reach has been expanding throughout the years across the globe. The collective experience of the members of the band speaks volumes of their knowledge and ability to craft world class albums.
There’s no singular unifying lyrical concept on “Deus Ex Machina“, but there’s a main theme, a coherent and deliberate thread running from the title through the music. The title of the album is a term from ancient Greek tragedy and translates to “god from the machine”. The idea for the concept was that a machine, typically a rudimentary crane, would lower a thespian playing god onto the stage to solve the seemingly unsolvable conflict in the plot. In modern entertainment, the term has evolved to primarily refer to a cheap solution in a poorly written script or novel. Alternatively, Vesania‘s “Deus Ex Machina” is a call for any kind of help or intervention because all of the lyrics on the album are hopeless and show characters in situations that leaves them powerless. One of the tracks tells the story of the lowering of an actor, supposedly the god, onto a stage before a corrupted man searching for answers. Instead, that actor is lowered by a noose around their neck, having already died. The lyrics paint a drab picture, particularly when paired with equally bleak music. Recording was completed at Sound Division Studio, with mastering by Scott Hull at Visceralsound Studios.

The post Review: Tyranny Enthroned – Our Great Undoing appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
The album begins with a slow song called “Visions of the Surreal” that creates a wide spread panic atmosphere, featuring tortured vocals from Jesse McCoy over the layers of gloomy death metal riffing. A rather terrifying start to the album but still a crushing headbanging tune to kick it all off. As the song comes to a close, you may expect another offering of sinister low tempo death metal but you’ll be greatly surprised to find out that it leads us to one of the most kick ass songs of the year. “The Incubus” starts off moderate death metal riffing and some drum work that is catchy, but once they are done introducing the song that fucking soul ripping riff comes in and I get goosebumps all over my body. This is one of those riffs that you wish you wrote, it’s so god damn killer. The riff is so good that they could have just played it for 6 minutes straight but they progress back to their intro riff, then into the crushing riff into a great mind blowing mid section (Near 3:55) that reminds me of Amon Amarth’s “Versus the World” era of guitar writing. Then the band comes blazing back in with an altered version of that crushing riff and it’s hard to not want to replay that song 8 more times. Definitely one of the heaviest and progressively raw compositions of the year!
After that amazing song I need a refractory period to process it all and calm down but the gang blazes on with “Concession”. Jesse guides his throat to have a more raw throaty mid-high growl which sounds like he is conjuring his black metal influences. The chord progression and blackened death metal writing on this song is top notch stuff. You can hear the bass guitar twang behind the black metal riffing which gives this song a wretched atmosphere. The entire song just makes you want to whirlwind headbang for the entire 7 minutes of the song.
“Interpreter of Dreams” is the band spawning more creativity and gathering Vader & Behemoth influence with crushing riffs followed directly by arpeggios to give us that black metal feeling. Slightly slower but still a powerful and driven song. Pummeling action and all band members firing on all death metal cylinders to make the wall of sound that is emitted almost hurt. “Mark of Conjured Divinity” has an intro and guitar build up that is as masterful as it is entertaining. Quickly following that is a simple yet strong guitar riff with hyper characterized drum work, then all is silent briefly as the bassist adds in a slight bit of his own work before the entire band fire back in with a quickness. The sort of thrash riffing during the verse make this song feel like a train that has no plans on slowing down until they damn well feel like it. When the band does finally slow it down, the progressive atmospheric guitar writing swarms in and hexes the listener. The trance like build up and bass guitar tone just worked so well together and this song was one carefully thought out piece of work.
“Dissenter Chasing the Void” sound like something that could have been on the latest Behemoth or Sidious album. The overly sadistic song writing and vocal work is just over the top and it’s hard to believe that this young band is already writing incredible thoughtful and inspiring blackened death metal like this. It gives you hope for the future of the metal scene as a whole. More and more people need to be more creative as Tyranny Enthroned!
Bringing the album to a close is a title track and usually with title tracks it usually can be one of the better tracks on the album, since that one song will usually represent that entire album within that one track. However, since Tyranny Enthroned decided to save it for last, I have a feeling they just wanted it to end their story with a bang. The song features more of these punishing riffs and chords I’ve fallen in love with. Drumming and bass work still delivering an ass whooping at every plausible moment while the vocals are spewed forth with venom and agony. Mid way through the song, the mentality takes on a very black metal sound and darkness just swells through each note played. Just like that, the final notes are played and the masterpiece comes to an end.
After many listens to this album it is safe to say that this is one of the more thrilling albums of the year. The dissonant and disturbing chord progression, the powerful fire breathing vocals, the rich bass tone and the chaotic clashing of the drums all came together to form “Our Great Undoing” and the young band out of St. Louis should be more than proud of the fine metal album they’ve released. The album plays as organic and smooth as it should with no off putting song to disturb the flow of the album. Consistency is key here and they pull it off flawlessly without putting out 7 songs that sound the same. A crushing album from one of my new favorite bands. The album drops November 4th via Blast Head Records and it’s the best album that label has put out this year and definitely the bands finest work to date!
