DEAD CARNAGE set release date for new IMMORTAL SOULS album, reveal first track

Today, Immortal Souls Productions announces June 25th as the international release date for DEAD CARNAGE’s highly anticipated second album, From Hell For Hate. DEAD CARNAGE has been on the underground scene since mid-2013, when Milhaus (Disfigured Corpse) and Čidar (G.O.R.E.) agreed to set up a death metal project. The drummer and singer were replaced by a few excellent musicians, until the microphone remained with Joshua (Inception Of Fall), drums with Ferenc (Antigod, Disfigured Corpse), and the second guitar taken by Yabback (Antigod). In this composition, the band recorded a mini-CD, The Only Thing I Ever Wanted To Kill The God, […]

Godfathers of sludge -(16)- share their official video for ‘Sadlands’. The track comes off the band’s forthcoming eighth full-length Dream Squasher, set for release next month via Relapse Records. The unsettling clip was directed by Michael Panduro (Devourment, Dead Cross, Job For A Cowboy). Comments guitarist/vocalist Bobby Ferry, “I wrote this song about witnessing an all too common injustice perpetrated by those who are supposed to care for the vulnerable but end up being the root cause of the suffering, where the victim’s only revenge is to escape the perpetrator’s clutches and leave them to self-destruct.” View ‘Sadlands’ at THIS […]

All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet, the latest full-length from Dutch atmospheric black metal unit AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN, is out now and streaming via their new label home of Prosthetic Records. A ten-track chronology of the human condition that heaves under the weight of both distortion and emotion, All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet seamlessly defies all genre constraints as vivid melody provides a counterpoint to dismal soundscapes and harsh vocals. Embracing an insular approach to their output, the stunning offering was recorded, engineered, mixed, and mastered by the band. The cover art was also created by the […]

Album Review: Cadaver – D. G. A. F.

Norway’s CADAVER has always been, is, and looks to forever be Neddo. It also seems to foul the ears so sporadically as to almost be forgotten in the interim, despite cranking out some morbidly grotesque death under the name CADAVER. And so, 16 years after the flesh-covered wrecking ball that was Necrosis, Neddo surfaces again, journeyman skinbasher Dirk Verbeuren behind the kit, to deliver D. G. A. F. At just over 10 minutes long, the duo has neither the time (nor thankfully) the inclination to fuck around, Jeff Walker lending his rasp to the title track. Luddite as all Hell, […]

German Death Metal Giants DEFEATED SANITY Releasing The Sanguinary Impetus July 24 on Willowtip

Berlin (Germany) – Progressive/Brutal Death Metal luminaries DEFEATED SANITY return July 24 with The Sanguinary Impetus on Willowtip Records. Album cut ‘Propelled Into Sacrilege’ is streaming HERE The Sanguinary Impetus is perhaps the ultimate expression of DEFEATED SANITY’s signature blend of the brutal with the technical, performed in a manner largely unparalleled in the world of extreme metal. At once comfortably recognizable and awe-inspiring, the forthcoming album is sure to be a lock for many year-end lists. Sickening riff crunch, hammering beats, and technical wizardry combine to create a level of sonic violence that won’t soon be forgotten. The band […]

Album Review: Winterfylleth – The Reckoning Dawn

It’s been six long years since WINTERFYLLETH released an all out black metal album. 2018 saw an acoustic/folk based effort entitled The Hallowing Of Heirdom. The result of this time off has been nothing less than a complete reinvigoration of the band; The Reckoning Dawn is the best album WINTERFYLLETH has ever done. This is blurry, high speed black metal at its absolute peak. The pace is relentless, but the songs are full of emotion and majesty. Listening to this album, I experienced shades of rage, sadness, defiance and pride. The riffing reaches back to the dawn times of Albion […]
