Swedish metallic hardcore quintet Snake Tongue are poised to release their new EP, No Escape No Excuse, on February 15 via The Sign Records. The upcoming four-track effort features a dark, concussive sound full of bitterness and groove. Fans of Trap Them and Converge are urged to pay attention.
Toronto’s Battlebear (featuring members of Ayahuasca, Guiltfeeder and Signifier) have released the debut single from their upcoming EP, which the Canadians cleverly dubbed Grimm Horton’s. The new track is titled “Salt & Vinegar Tourniquet” and showcases the trio’s annihilating combination of death metal, grindcore and crust punk, along with intense riffage and corrosive vocals to contrast their tongue-in-cheek lyrical themes. Check out the track after the break.
Lithuanian post-metal outfit Autism recently released the debut single from their forthcoming album, Have You Found Peace?, which is due out on February 4 via St. Ripper Records.

The track is also the first Autism tune to feature vocals, courtesy of Rosk vocalist Krzysztof Traczyk. Fans of Amenra, take note.

Wyoming hardcore outfit Closed In (ex-Reproacher) recently released the debut single from their upcoming demo, One With Pain. Titled “Teeth”, the new track features muscular, sludgy riffs that hammer and gallop in the vein of Cursed. Check out the track after the break.

New Zealand instrumental metal outfit Into Orbit released a new single earlier this week on January 9. The new single, which follows their 2017 full-length Unearthing, is titled “Shifter” and showcases the duo’s dynamic nature. For nearly six minutes the tune travels through various sonic paths before arriving at its cathartic conclusion. Galloping post-metal à la Russian Circles gives way to groove-heavy stoner metal, which then gives way to psychedelic prog rock fervor, and so on. Check out the track after the break and stream the band’s past efforts here. Continue Reading
Italian death metal legends Electrocution are slated to release their new full-length album, Psychonolatry, on February 8 via GoreGoreCords.

The band said the following of the upcoming effort: Continue Reading
Born from the ashes of Long Island punk outfit Rations comes two new projects, Rations Noise and Unknown River Driver. Rations Noise remixes and rearranges clips of Rations‘ studio and live recordings into an experimental noise/pseudo-industrial context. In stark contrast, Unknown River Driver delivers anthemic punk that drips with 90s post-hardcore and emo fervor. Continue Reading
Portland-based noise rock outfit Frequency Killer are poised to release their debut single, Lupercalia/Too High Too Low, tomorrow on New Year’s Day. These two tracks forgo typical Amphetamine Reptile worship and instead infuse their noise rock stylings with spaced-out sludge and caustic atmospheres. It’s raw, ugly, and probably the best thing we can think of to ring in the new year. In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive early stream of the single alongside a mini-review.
Check out all the goods below. Continue Reading
Industrial post-metal outfit Lament Cityscape recently released a remixed and remastered version of their 2015 full-length, The Torn, entitled The Torn (Release). The massive re-release features various remixes from artists such as Theologian and Godhunter, as well as a cover of Ministry‘s “Filth Pig”. To coincide with the record’s release, the band have also released an official film to accompany the record. The film, directed by Neil Corbin, is just as brooding and disquieting as the album itself.
Check out the film below and purchase the record here. Continue Reading
