Crusty death metal heavy hitters Mammoth Grinder have emerged from the fog and are preparing to crush skulls. 2018 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for music and I, for one, am super stoked on a ton of new shit. Coming in January, we will get a pummeling dose of death from Texas titans Mammoth Grinder. The bands new album Cosmic Crypt is going to destroy and if you don’t believe me, peep the new track that the band just unloaded called “Superior Firepower.” Prepare. The shit shall hit the fan. Enjoy the track below.
Brisbane’s Idylls deliver a half-hour of concussive noise metal in their third full-length record, The Barn.
Since 2011, this Australian quartet have been perfect their chaotic craft through a handful of splits, EPs and two hellacious full-length releases. The most recent of these aforementioned full-lengths, 2014’s Prayer for Terrene, sat at the apex of this evolution of madness: unleashing a maelstrom of off-kilter mathcore awash with noise and spiced with zany saxophone accompaniment. It was like a fiery collision between the most frenetic of Converge‘s material and the erratic weirdness of John Zorn’s Naked City. In short, Prayer for Terrene was insanity incarnate.

On December 1, Ascension Monuments Media will be releasing Leviathan‘s The First Sublevel of Suicide; the previously unreleased, 40-minute demo recorded between 2002 and 2003 that would serve as the basis for the project’s highly-influential debut studio album, The Tenth Sublevel of Suicide. This is the first time the demo has been made available for public consumption and will be the first of several planned releases from Leviathan via Ascension Monuments Media. Leviathan mastermind Wrest said the following regarding the unearthed demo: Continue Reading
Brooklyn’s metal obsessed post-hardcore band Husbandry are embarking on a 2 week tour across the US with fellow New York weirdo rockers Moon Tooth. Starting in Philadelphia, PA on 11/1 and returning to Amityville, NY, on 11/16, the 6000+ mile trek takes them as far west the infamous Viper Room in Los Angeles.
With a few stretches in the van as long as 15 hours, we thought it would be interesting to get Husbandry’s take on life on the road with a multi-part tour journal. Follow Arnau Bosc (bass), Jordan Usatch (guitar), Carina Zachary (vocals), and Andrew Gottlieb (drums) on their epic journey across the United States.
Their new 5-track EP Bad Weeds Never Die, is out 12/1 on Aqualamb Records, but is available early from the band on tour now. Pre-orders for the 120+ page book/cd combo are also available at http://aqualamb.bandcamp.com
Weaving together elements of noise, free composition, classical, doom metal and a myriad of other influences, Ehnahre create unorthodox compositions that defy categorization. Their music sees the boundaries set forth by the genres that influence them and insist on pushing beyond them, resulting in complete avant-garde bliss. As is the case with their most recent full-length effort, The Marrow, which delivers something dark, sinister and unlike what most of extreme music has to offer.
Svbterranean recently caught up with Ehnahre’s founder and bandleader, Ryan McGuire, to discuss the new album, the avant-garde, poetry and more.
November 14th, 2017 – Narcotic Wasteland have been out on their first tour ever performing headlining shows across America and Canada. They came out to Kansas City, MO at The Riot Room and local bands P.G.S.K., Weaponized Decay and Marasmus brought forth great death metal to welcome Narcotic to the small venue. Let’s go over these opening acts real quick before we get into the meat and potatoes of this Narcotic Wasteland recap.
Hello there, readers. Lane and I came up with the idea to do a Bandcamp Spotlight to highlight some of the bands that we have trouble dedicating entire posts to. Nothing against the bands, it’s just a time issue. So, let us proceed into the first edition of SVB’s Bandcamp Spotlight series. Continue Reading
In my opinion, there are bands you love, and then there are legitimately important bands. Often times, the two will not meet. You can enjoy a band, and if you’re a reasonable person, admit that they’re not genre luminaries or trendsetters. Most bands aren’t. There’s nothing wrong with that. For example; I love Mgla, but to argue that they’re much more than just another really proficient black metal band seems silly to me. They’re not. They’re just good at relying on tropes that others have created to great effect. Godflesh, on the other hand, is not just a band I love, but a band who actually shaped heavy music in the late 80s and early 90s. And now, they’ve returned, yet again, after the stellar “reunion record” 2014’s A World Lit Only By Fire. And with this return, made the most varied album of their career.
