So as you may or may not have heard, Long Island, New York’s Prog/Sludge/Party Wunderkind Moon Tooth are coming out with their debut full length Chromaparagon next week, with a release party at St. Vitus in Brooklyn on February 4th. Combining instrumental and melodic virtuosity with songwriting chops that have garnered well-earned comparisons to Mastodon, Living Color, Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more musical pioneers, Moon Tooth will be finding themselves a household name before long. I had the chance recently to ask vocalist John Carbone and Guitarist Nick Lee about the album, the band, and well, find out what the hell a Moon Tooth is.

Finnish death metal unit Gloria Morti have announced the release of their fifth full-length record and follow-up to 2012’s Lateral Constraint. The new record will be titled Kuebiko and will be released on March 18 via Willowtip Records. Guitarist Juho Räihä commented on the upcoming effort:
“With Kuebiko we wanted to make a record that is hard hitting, both in lyrical themes as well as in songwriting. We also wanted to steer away from the sterile and lifeless sound heard in most modern metal albums released today. Kuebiko is definitely about making the listener feel something. Mostly disgust and anger. The lyrical themes range from Josef Fritzl to being buried alive. The main point is not to shock, but to make you feel the exhaustion of living in this time where you are just forced to stand there and watch the atrocities of the world. Kuebiko is an album that stands out from most of modern music and encapsulates what Gloria Morti is.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.

Oregon technical death metal outfit, Omnihility, have premiered a new track from their impeding full-length, Dominion of Misery, at Heavy Blog is Heavy.
