Carcass

Another week, another unending set of problems. Yep, that simple folks. Anyway, new metal time which means it’s finally CARCASS week. Whether you fell off long ago or keep on keeping on, Carcass keep doing their thing and this week they’re, again, doing it extremely well as they travel further along the melodi-carcass path. Plus, who doesn’t need some fun in their death metal these days? Rhetorical question of course, not in my bucket to care who does and who doesn’t. For a twofer of melodic death metal, we’ve got the latest from Insomnium which “good” is understood automatically, how good? Find out. Then we’ve got some brutalicious death metal from Vulvodynia and some wicked deathgrind from Dickless Tracy. Last but not least are the remainder of releases hiding out below these top four. Go. Do it.

CANTO: Carcass, Cadaver, Blind Channel, and More

Fucking summer colds, yo. Let’s wrap this week up.

  • Damn, apparently Ghost Bath is still a thing. They’ve announced a new album, Self Loather, which will be released on October 29th through Nuclear Blast Records. Check out the visualizer for the first single, “Convince Me to Bleed”, and pre-order your copy here.
  • I’ve heard A LOT of good things about the new Carcass album, Torn Arteries, so we’ll link you to the new animated music video for “Dance of Ixtab (Psychopomp & Circumstance March No. 1)”. That album drops on September 17th, also through Nuclear Blast.
  • You know what? This is going to be a Nuclear Blast news roundup today, and that’s fucking fine. Equilibrium released a a new single titled “Revolution”, and kicked off pre-orders for a Sagas vinyl reissue. Fun fact: that was the last Equilibrium album I truly loved. Those will ship out November 19th.
  • South Dakota metalcore collective Earth Groans are releasing a new EP on September 3rd through Solid State Records titled The Body. Check out the new single, “Drink”, which you can stream right here.
  • Cadaver gave us a new music video today, for “Feed The Pigs”, which features Kam Lee of Massacre (awesome). That track, of course, is taken from Edder & Bile, which dropped last year through… Nuclear Blast.
  • We’ll close with a new single and music video from Blind Channel for “Balboa”. That track is also available to stream and purchase here, through Century Media.
