Today I wanted to show you some live black metal. Hope you enjoy.
A band I’ve never heard before has released a new song that is pretty easy on the ears. Oddland’s “Above and Beyond” is sorta like a melodic math metal. The riffs definitely have that time signature change about them and while it’s not overly heavy or brutal, it’s still pretty rockin. Oddland’s new album, “The Treachery of Senses“, comes out on April 8th here in NA.
Head on over to REVOLVER to check out the nominees! Also you can purchase tickets to the event that apparently have acts such as Marilyn Manson, Slash, Evanescence, Sixx:A.M. & The Black Veil Brides are slated to perform.
Well enough blogging….I’m going to go vote!
BERMUDA have made their new track “In Trenches”, which features a guest appearance by Kevin McCaughey of Ion Dissonance, available for streaming on their Facebook page, which can be found here http://www.facebook.com/bermudaca. The song, comes from the band’s new album ‘The Wandering‘, which will be available in stores and online April 24th through Mediaskare Records.
I just listened to the new track and it’s actually pretty heavy. Djenty, deathcore-y and overall just crunchy goodness. I do enjoy me some Bermuda now.

Brendon Small of Dethklok fame apprently is working on a new side project, Galaktikon!
“Brendon Small’s GALAKTIKON: A high stakes intergalactic extreme rock album coming soon!”
So that’s cool, when I read that little quote my first guess is that the album will sound something like Strapping Young Lad. Just a guess.
Head on over to PITCHFORK to listen to Torche’s new track “Kicking“. I’m terribly sick so I’m just going to be lazy and post what is on Pitchfork’s site. You can download the single from Pitchfork by singing up for their email list.
Miami/Atlanta quartet Torche‘s third LP, Harmonicraft, is out April 24 via new label Volcom. The 13-song collection– produced by bassist Jonathan Nuñez, mixed by gong-toting Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou, and featuring new guitarist Andrew Elstner– follows the 2010 mini album Songs for Singles, though it feels like the descendent of their stronger 2008 breakthrough Meanderthal. As “Kicking” suggests, despite the new lineup and imprint, vocalist/gutarist Steve Brooks’ knack for sludgy pop anthems remains unchanged.
