Finnish progressive metal quartet Edge of Haze are set to release their third full-length album, Deluge, tomorrow, November 10. In anticipation of its release, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of one of the catchiest cuts on the record, “Perfume”. The track weaves together jarring rhythms and “djent”-esque grooves, with shimmering “proggy” atmospheres and earworm melodies and hooks. Fans of Tesseract, Periphery and the like, take note.

One-man black metal outfit Nekrasov has premiered his forthcoming eighth full-length album, The Mirror Void, via Decibel Magazine. The album will officially be released this Friday, November 10, via Prosthetic Records, and can be purchased here.

New Zealand post-metallers Spook the Horses have premiered their forthcoming full-length, People Used to Live Here, via No Clean Singing. The album will officially be released this Friday, November 10, via Pelagic Records and can be purchased here. Compared to the swelling post-rock compositions found on 2011’s Brighter, and the sludgy dirges of 2015’s Rainmaker, People Used to Live Here show the band making yet another stylistic shift, opting for a more minimal and atmospheric approach. Check it out in full after the break.

Check it out below. HEAVY. Continue Reading

Halloween is upon us; that glorious time of year in which low-budget horror films are viewed, copious amounts of horrid candy are consumed, and “edgy” kids decorate their rooms with goofy macabre decorations raided from Spirit Halloween stores across the nation. In preparation for this beloved holiday, we at Svbterranean have something special for you weirdos.
