Kansas City technical death metal outfit Ahtme (formerly The Roman Holiday) have released the official video for their track “The Sentinel’s Order” at No Clean Singing. The track originally appeared on the group’s 2013 album The Demonization, which was never given an official release until now. The Demonization will be re-released by Unique Leader Records on March 25 and can be pre-ordered here. The band commented on the “new” track:
“‘The Sentinel’s Order’ is one of the first songs we wrote as a band and it does a great job of encompassing what this project is about. It’s fast, aggressive and violent. We really wanted to focus on the intensity that attracted us all to this genre of music in the first place. It’s a song about doing what we as humans were created to do, indulging in carnal desires and paying no heed to what the constructs of modern morality deem socially acceptable (to an extent). This is a song about really reverting to your animal instincts and I think even without the lyrics, the music itself paints a picture along those lines. Though this song is one of our favorites, it came about very early in the writing process. We are proud of how it came together, having said that, the rest of the album only gets better and we are beyond stoked to have an official reissue coming out and finally get it out to people who would never have had a chance to hear it otherwise.”

Finland’s grind aficionados Rotten Sound have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Abuse to Suffer, at Terrorizer. Titled “Lazy Asses”, the track features all of the best propulsive, volcanic grind the band is known for. The band recently commented on the new track:
“Our first track starts with an intro by our friend Heikki Järvi, who also did the samples for ‘Exit’ in 2004. We did not ask for anything specific, but somehow the disturbing sounds he created are setting the exactly right mood for this song, which is one of the most aggressive tracks on our new album. Even by our standards, ‘Lazy Asses’ kicks in pretty explosively: fast guitars, blasting drums and an opening grunt, which was strongly influenced by the beginning of the ‘Brain Corrosion’ album by Dead Infection. It is Sami’s song, who openly admits that the idea for this grunting stems from our Polish friends, and I recall that he used their scream on the original demo. Everything about ‘Lazy Asses’ revolves around grind and that is the reason why we placed it at the start although there are other ingredients on this album. The title is pointing a finger at the ultimate waste of money and time: free-riders in the politics. I am sure everyone can easily name a few of them.”
Check out the track after the break.
Abuse to Suffer will be released on March 25 via Season of Mist. Pre-order here.
