Well, the kings of death metal have made return. Cannibal Corpse have unloaded their brutally heavy new album Red Before Black today and it’s really fucking good. I’ve loved all of Cannibal’s material to-date, but the title of this one threw me for a loop. I was worried, but no more. The album saw its release today and that means it’s time to stream! Check it out below. HEAVY. Continue Reading
Well, I got my pre-order of the new Converge album in yesterday and I was absolutely blown away. I had avoided every single and stream from the album throughout it’s promotion and when I took it in yesterday, I was lost in it. I’m loving it. BUT, this isn’t a review. This is me telling you that you can currently stream the amazing new album, which was released today! Stream the whole shabang below. Do it for your health. You needs you some Converge.

Austrian post-black metal act Harakiri For The Sky took my world by storm a few years back, so I was quite pleased to learn that they would be unleashing some new material in 2018. The band will release their new record Arson in February and we have gotten a taste of the radness already. You can check out “Tomb Omnia” off of the album below. Spoiler: it rules. Continue Reading
Long-running industrial drone/noise/electronics project Prurient (masterminded by Dominic Fernow), is celebrating its twentieth year and the forthcoming release of Rainbow Mirror in December is shaping up to be a doozy. The album, which boasts an insane three-hour run time, will be released on quadruple CD and a 7LP set. Holy shit.
Check out the latest offering from the album “Falling In The Water” below. It’s beautiful and haunting and I love it. CHECK IT. Continue Reading
Japanese hardcore act Friendship unleashed one of the meanest albums of 2017 today and if you’re not into it, you’re wrong. Lane reviewed the album a while back, but the time has come for you to make up your own mind. You can stream the album in the widget below. Man, this thing crushes. Enjoy and be sure to pick up the album on your preferred format today! Continue Reading
Contrarian is probably one of the more prolific “super group…but not a super group” bands within modern death metal. Several artists hailing from internationally known and loved bands come together to jam some of the coolest progressive death metal songs I’ve ever heard. The bands last album, “Polemic“, was one of my favorite albums to exist in 2015. Their brutal death vocal style by Cody McConnell (Goemagot) over progressive death metal with legendary guitarist Leon Macey (Mithras, Sarpanitum) doing lead guitar stuff just SLAYED. Coming into their new album we have a slightly different sound with To Perceive Is To Suffer, as Macey and McConnell are not on this album. Taking vocal duty is legendary drummer George Kollias (Nile) and he also returns to destroy us on the kit as well. Jim Tasikas’ glorious song writing ambitions return with full energy as well, Brian Mason takes control of the soloing this time around and Ed Paulsen’s delicious bass tones are back with a vengeance. Contrarian may have changed up some things in the lineup department but the enriched song experience is still the same.
