Swedish grind unit Gadget have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, The Great Destroyer, at No Clean Singing. The track, which is the first of five new tracks to be premiered this week, is titled “Choice of a Lost Generation” and it rips and tears through listeners with grindcore glee. Check out the high octane tune now.
The Great Destroyer will be released on March 11 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
After releasing two EPs in 2012 and 2014 respectively, Leipzig-based dark hardcore outfit Throwers replenish their arsenal for a devastating assault on their first full-length, Loss. The term “dark” is used here in relation to hardcore because that seems to be the perfect way to describe what’s going on here. It’s not dark in terms of grimy production and suffocating dissonance, but instead in terms of the brooding, menacing atmospheres it creates. It features all of the nuances of a good, back-breaking hardcore album, but with a somber post-metal twist. It will bash listeners with vitriolic, concussive instrumentation and, at the drop of a dime, plummet them into realms of melancholy and introspection. It’s only fitting that the record is called “Loss”, because each track is reminiscent of the emotional push and pull of grief.
