Napalm Death band 2017

2/12/2018. Two day hangovers are THE WORST.

  • Iron Reagan and Gatecreeper have given us a couple new songs to kick off this week. “Warning” and “Dead Inside”, respectively. Their split LP will be out March 2nd through Relapse.
  • Doyle has announced a 2018 world tour. It’s called the As We Die World Abomination Tour. It covers a lot of territory in the US and UK between now and mid-April. I’ll pass, but that’s just me.
  • How about another new track? This one from Napalm Death. We haven’t mentioned them in awhile. “Oh So Pseudo” from Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs, out March 30th.
  • Screw it. One more. Twitching Tongues have also released a new single today. It’s called “Kill For You”. Their new album, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, will be out March 9th. Check it out below, if you’re into that kinda thing.

    Initial Descent: January 29 – February 4, 2017

In case you missed out on what I’m referring to one of our own, Chris, has the details right here and with any luck some of today’s Initial Descent albums made the rounds in all the gifting. With that said, lets get on with it: Tomb Mold melt eardrums with their first full length Primordial Malignancy and what a sweet death metal sound it is, Iron Reagan are back with their crossover thrash on the aptly titled Crossover Ministry, re-issues don’t generally make top billing but The Mist‘s debut from way back in 1989, Phantasmagoria, has just done it and rightfully so — the album is a thrash masterpiece and will hopefully get the recognition it so deserves, and Dying Whale rounds out the top end with Last Moments of Misery — for reference points think about what it would sound like if sludge metal and hardcore fought in a razor wired cage with knives and hammers, yea blood everywhere. And just like that, this week is yet another stacked high with quality but we have so much more in store after the jump. Continue reading
