Barbaric death metal act Entrails will be releasing a new album on May 14th 2013 called “Raging Death” and this epic journey through timeless classic death metal sound and relentless riffing is just what I needed. Lately, I’ve been blasted with plenty of calm releases and this Entrails album is exactly what I needed to get me headbanging frantically once again!!!! The raw sound, the fury and the non-stop riffing gave me a damn nosebleed halfway through my first listen!
Growing their fan base with the offering of their debut album ‘Malignance’ for FREE DOWNLOAD via their bandcamp here, Vernon, BC blackened death metal band XUL are proud to announce they will be hitting the road for their first cross Canada tour to deliver their brutal assault that fans of Behemoth, Dissection and Immortal will sure not want to miss.
One of the biggest death metal shows of the year hit the tiniest possible venue in Kansas City, MO. The Riot Room hosted the “Despise the World” tour with Suffocation, Exhumed, Jungle Rot, Rings of Saturn, Adimiron and Troglodyte. I walked into the venue right as Troglodyte began their song “No Beast So Fierce” and it was the perfect way to begin the night. Was The Riot Room going to be able to handle all of this metal in one night? Well, continue reading to find out.
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!!
Amon Amarth just revealed the new cover art for their new upcoming album from Metal Blade Records called “Deceiver of the Gods”!!!! I AM SO DAMN EXCITED!!!!!!
The band explains the art:
The cover depicts the last battle between the Gods and Loki who arrives at Vigridr field accompanied by the army of the dead during Ragnarok, the end of the world. We hope you enjoy it.
Of course you know, along with great art comes great music, and Amon Amarth deliver every time!!!! I can’t wait to see them on their Bonner Springs, KS Mayhem Fest off date!!!! Let the whirlwind headbanging commence!!!!!
Well when I first heard of “supergroup” death metal act Pyrithion, I was very skeptical. Sure, there is a possibility for immediate success with Tim Lambesis (As I Lay Dying) on vocals and guitars being destroyed by Ryan Glisan (Allegaeon) and Andy Godwin (Embodyment), but can these guys come together to forge the alleged supreme death metal album they hope to release? Fuck yes they can.
Troglodyte, Kansas City’s neanderthal death metal act, needs our help!!!! Rob Zombie, Machine Head, Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom will be stopping by here on an off date Mayhem Fest show and we all know who needs to open this bad boy for us. That’s right, TROGLODYTE.
FLOOD 98.9 The Rock’s Facebook, Twitter, website and email stating how badly you want to see the almighty TROGLODYTE open for this amazing set on August 5th at Sandstone. I’m calling it Sandstone, I’m tired of the name change every fucking year.
ADE (Uh-Day) is one of those fantastic bands that seems to have a found a theme that at the heart of it all, is very metal. Ancient Greek and Roman theme death metal hailing all the way from…well, Rome! These gentlemen combine the fury and power of Nile, Behemoth and Hour of Penance combined and “Spartacus” is the end result. An incredible death metal release that is truly one of those albums you have to show some respect to. Not only do they find a wonderfully awesome theme to go by, they grabbed one of death metals best drummers to play on this album. That drummer is known as George Kollias.
That’s right. Someone stood still and recorded the entire 2 hour, 23 song set! Nile’s 20th anniversary tour (Read the review here) is still underway and nearing the end of it’s cycle around the country. I was able to see them in St. Louis on March 17th and it was one hell of a show!!!! Get ready to turn your speakers all the way up for the next couple of hours. Here is the show!!!
Headlining for their 20th anniversary tour with a two hour long set, Nile came to the pretty small venue known as The Firebird. They have played bars all the way to Wacken sized festivals, so I’m sure they didn’t mind the small amount of heads that came that night. I mean it was a Sunday night on St. Patties Day, it was an awkward night to have people come see your show. However, the die hard fans showed up and we all had a great time. I mean I drove 4 hours just to go see them play and I had work the next day! What was your excuse for missing the show?
Immolation is one of those really good death metal bands that get overlooked often and they are massively underrated in my book. Streaming their new song “Kingdom of Conspiracy”, they prove that 20+ years of hard work and determination can end up granting you great results. The songs is heavy, tightly played and the production sounds the best they’ve ever had. Hail IMMOLATION!!!!

City in the Sea‘s video/song is plain boring. “Dead Beliefs” is an uninteresting track and the video lacked any originality. I suppose the use of red bulbs was the only original thing about it. The empty warehouse theme has been used so many times. If any more bands use this I will instantly tab over and just base my opinion on the song alone.
Dark Sermon‘s video for “In Tongues” is rather bad ass and this is the first time I’ve heard of these guys. Upon listening to this music video, I have to hear the new album in full. So many elements combined into one song….made for one hell of a ride. Excellent headbang material to get whiplash to. Music videos are below after the jump.
Death metal titans Six Feet Under have released their new album “Unborn” today and I’ve been jamming it for the past few weeks so I can give you a quality review on release date. It’s heavy, it’s ambient, it’s horror, gore and brutal. Yet, it doesn’t sound like a true Six Feet Under release. Sure Chris Barnes is still growling homicidal lyrics and I feel as if Steve Swanson isn’t even truly writing music anymore. It just feels like a death metal album with Chris Barnes hired on for vocal work.
The new Killswitch Engage track “The New Awakening” isn’t bad at all. It’s packed full of your usual KSE stuff but I tell you what, Jesse proves more and more everytime I listen to them that he was the absolute perfect choice for the vocal spot again.
It’s finally here! The official roster of this year’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival 2013 band lineup!!!! Time to slap on your sun screen, drink tons of booze and headbang til you can’t hold your own head up. Ahhh……the smell of portable toilets fill the air. Debauchery at it’s finest. The roster is as follows:
In an effort to get caught up on the flood of reviews that have been submitted over the past month, I’ve decided to do a massive review post. Labeling the band, album name, score and a small description of the music in an effort to get caught up and still manage to post some sort of quality writing material for all of you faithful readers out there. Today’s list includes: Suffocation, Animist, Baal, Blockheads, Moghul, Vorum, Momentum, Rotting Christ, Zombified, Nightfall, Gloria Morti, Lightning Swords of Death and Raven Black Night.
Head over to Metal Underground to listen to the new album from Rotting Christ, “Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy”!!!!
