Brain Pick is a monthly podcast in which Marc Bourgon (Greber, Cancelled, Fuck the Facts, et al) speaks to musicians, and people in the industry, about their creative process.
This month I speak with the ever-lovely Leon del Muerte. Gracing many brilliant records with his brand of gut-removing aggression, he and I speak about collaborating with other musicians, getting from point A to point C as well as finding inspiration in other peoples radness.

Grind/death metal supergroup Expulsion (Intronaut, Phobia, Gruesome, et al) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming debut full-length, Nightmare Future, via Decibel. Titled “Total Human Genocide”, the two-minute stormer is chock full of furious d-beat and hellacious, disemboweling guitar work. Check out the tune after the break.
Nightmare Future will be released on July 14 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
The band’s previously-released single, “Altar of Slaughter”, can also be streamed after the break.

The record, which was produced by Sanford Parker, will be released on September 30 via Relapse Records. The record features 11 erratic and eclectic tracks full of seizure-inducing rhythms, complex bass and drum work, and a myriad of dizzying brass work. The record also features a special guest appearance from Oxbow frontman Eugene S. Robinson. The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen after the break.
Two tracks from the record, “Kingda Ka” and “The Sadist”, were recently premiered by Decibel. Those tracks can also be found after the break.
