Portland experimental duo Muscle and Marrow have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Love, over at She Shreds Magazine. Tilted “Bereft Body”, the new slow-burning tune builds steadily with hypnotic vocals and repetitious guitar melodies that are gradually accompanied by layer after layer of instrumentation, eventually ending in a cacophonous burst. Stream the new track after the break.
Love will be released on May 27 via The Flenser.
Minneapolis-based technical death metal outfit Reaping Asmodeia have released a rough, unedited version of a new track that will be featured on their upcoming album, Impuritize. Titled “The Clemency Guise”, the new track unleashes down-tuned, complex grooves and slamming death metal parts, interlaced with virtuosic tech death chops and a penchant for rhythmically jarring breakdowns. Think late The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza material mixed with Dying Fetus. Check out the track after the break.
Impuritize will be released this summer via Prosthetic Records.
French post-hardcore/screamo outfit Past have premiered their new full-length, Cliffhanger, at Idioteq. The album is officially out today via Voice of the Unheard Records and can be purchased here. The record is a highly emotive and powerful tour de force that fans of Birds in Row, Envy and similiar acts will be more than enamored with. Check it out in full after the break.
West Virginia-based noise rockers Rhin have premiered their forthcoming album, Passenger, at Metal Sucks. The album will officially be released next Friday, May 6, via Grimoire Records. Pre-orders can be found here. The album more than casually nods to the noise rock progenitors Unsane, Melvins and The Jesus Lizard, while mixing in a bit of stoner/sludge metal debauchery for an added kick. Check out the record in full now.
The band is currently on tour in support of the record. Check out those dates below.
