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.
Recently, I was blown away by the upcoming release of an progressive doom/sludge release from a band called “Vod”. This album of unorthodox sounds and shapes is called “Tuurngait” and it’ll be the most mind bending album you’ll listen to this year. I was able to shoot some question’s off to Dave Tremblay, who is the mastermind and main writer/performer on ‘Tuurngait’, and he fired back with his answers. Stay tuned because after the interview Headbang or GTFO has the exclusive premiere for the song “Ikuma” from their new album ‘Tuurngait’.
In anticipation of its release, the quartet — who have been described as a cross between Agalloch and Amon Amarth — have unveiled the previously unreleased track “Cities Built on Conquered Ground” exclusively via Metal Bandcamp

Time to raise a simple question: Do you want to die? If you want to hear the new Cattle Decapitation track, then you need to make sure you go to the Housecore Horror show in Austin, TX later this month. If you also want even more Travis Ryan (and we all know you want it) then watch the Wizards of Gore (aka Rigor Mortis) show as Travis will be on vocal duties for their set. More information and set times below!
