Chicagoan noise rock/post-hardcore outfit Mine Collapse have premiered a new track from their upcoming self-titled EP at Pure Grain Audio. The new track is titled “Zeroed” and it unleashes pulverizing bass lines and sludgy, AmRep-style grooves and weight. Says the band of the track:
“’Zeroed’ similarly echoes the lyrical theme of modern misanthropy, calling out insatiable consumerism and shameless entitlement among the upper crust. ‘Last in line is first to fail/ Choking down the bitter pill / After everything’s consumed / Empty life goes unfulfilled’.”
Check out the track now.
Mine Collapse will be released on July 22 via Nefarious Industries.
Progressive death metal project Destroying the Devoid – the solo effort of Deeds of Flesh‘s Craig Peters – has premiered a new track from its upcoming Paramnesia LP at Decibel. Titled “The Endless Cycles of Lunacy”, the new track features a marriage between complex, blistering death metal and haunting symphonic elements. Says Peters of the track:
“‘The Endless Cycles Of Lunacy’ is a song that takes you through the mind of someone losing sight of reality. The music is very frantic but sways in and out of moments of schizophrenia and sorrow. It is a musical representation of the darkest polarity of the human psyche.”
Check out the track/lyric video after the break.
Paramnesia will be released on August 19 via Unique Leader Records.

Canadian metallic hardcore outfit Exalt have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, The Shape You Took Before the Ache, over at Revolver. Titled “Sacrifice to Purify”, the new tune churns out bestial, steadily pummeling beatdowns whose only purpose is to bash listeners’ skulls in. Vocalist Tyler Brand said of the track:
“‘Sacrifice to Purify’ is a song that we believe exemplifies the diversity our new album holds, sonically and lyrically. As the first track of our record, we think it starts the album off in a way that embodies the heaviness but also peculiarity the record has in store.”
Check out the track after the break along with the band’s remaining tour dates with Dark Sermon.
The Shape You Took Before the Ache will be released on September 9 via Good Fight Music and New Damage Records.
