San Francisco black/death metal quartet Succumb have premiered a new track from their forthcoming self-titled debut via Terrorizer. Titled “Seedling”, the seven-minute stormer churns out a maelstrom of eviscerating death metal stylings, melding seamlessly with black metal malevolence and hardcore d-beat. Check it out after the break.
Succumb will be released on May 5 via The Flenser.
Netherlands-based atmospheric death metallers Ulsect (Dodecahedron, et al) have released a new track from their forthcoming self-titled LP, which is due out on May 12 via Season of Mist. The track storms forth with a plethora of angular death metal riffs, rife with atonal melodies, before retreating into a quiet dirge only to escalate back into chaos. Check out the track after the break.
Russian instrumental progressive death metallers Dark Matter Secret have announced the release of their full-length debut recording. The record, which follows their 2015 Xenoform EP, will be titled Perfect World Creation (artwork above) and will see a release through The Artisan Era on June 2. This will be the first release that founding members Denis Shvarts (guitars) and Pavel Semin (fretless bass) will be joined by new drummer Andrey Ischenko (Arkona). More details surrounding the release are slated to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, check out the album’s official trailer and the Xenoform release after the break.
You! Yes YOU! Do you like stop/start, stuttering noise mixed in with your hardcore punk aesthetic? Do you have the attention span of a hyper active 14 year old male, newly released on to a high school populace and just noticing the female form in all its beautiful glory, snapping your neck to look at each and every one of them as they walk by you in the hallway, desperately hoping that one talks to you?
If that is true, then do I have a band for you. Newly signed to Three.One.G, the record label started by Justin Pearson, of bands RETOX and THE LOCUST, DEATH EYES has unleashed a 34 second (you read that right) banger with the song titled “Life” and have also released a video, which premiered on GearGods, the sister site of Metalsucks.
This song has everything you need: dissonant noise, stop and start tempo changes, lyrics in both Spanish and English, and punk as fuck mentality to match the speed and groove for which this song has. If what I described in that sentence appeals to you, you will be more pleased than that 14 year old described in the first paragraph after he found his first issue of Hustler under his father’s mattress.
DEATH EYES will release their EP, Si La Revancha Fuera Una Opcion, on July 28th through Three.One.G records. Keep your ears on the ground.
