Richmond, Virginia crossover thrashers Municipal Waste have premiered their new track “Amateur Sketch” from their upcoming album, titled Slime and Punishment. The track is just under two minutes of the breakneck riffs, pummeling drums and in-your-face vocals that you’d expect from the band. Check it out after the break.

Avant-garde trio Brain Tentacles (Yakuza, Discordance Axis, Keelhaul, et al) have premiered the official video for their new track, “Fruitcake”, at Clrvynt. The feverish oddball jazz tune, which comes from the group’s impending self-titled debut, is set to an equally oddball video directed by Don Tyler. Bassist Aaron Dallison said of the video:
“We are super stoked at the visual splendor that Don Tyler brought to the table in the creation of this video! We hope everyone else enjoys as well.”
Check out the video after the break.
Brain Tentacles will be released on September 30 via Relapse Records. Pre-order here.
The band will be supporting Gorguts and Intronaut on their upcoming tour. Those dates can be found below.
Experimental metal trio Brain Tentacles – which comprises Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest, etc), Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Discordance Axis, etc) and Aaron Dallison (Keelhaul) – have announced the release of their self-titled debut album. 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.
The band will also be embarking on tour supporting Gorguts and Intronaut this fall. Those dates can be seen below.
