Less positive news has emerged from Khemmis, who has postponed their West Coast tour until June. All previously purchased tickets are still valid, and it sounds like some more dates might even be added. Read up on all that here.
Philadelphia sludge punk collective Backslider released a new track and video today, titled “Pseudomessiah”. That’s taken from the upcoming new album, Psychic Rot, which drops on February 11th through To Live A Lie Records.
Som shared a new track from their upcoming new album, The End of Everything, which is out on January 21st through Pelagic Records. Listen to “Center” here.
We’re going to wrap up with the first new Eight Bells material I’ve heard in forever. Check out “Destroyer” below. Legacy of Ruin is out on February 25th through Prophecy Productions.
Saturday Canto because I was too lazy to bust this out yesterday. Let’s find out what happened on Friday…
I haven’t heard much from Nekrogoblikon in a minute, so here’s a new video from that project for “Right Now”. Apparently that video serves as a teaser for John Goblikon’s new talk show of the same name… something I probably won’t be checking out, in all honesty.

Starting off with Mastodon, who revealed everything they were hinting at earlier in the week. Hushed & Grim, their new double album, will be out on October 29th through Reprise Records. Check out the first single, “Pushing the Tides”, right now. Of course, I already snagged my LP bundle.
And then we have Hypocrisy, who have left me hanging for way too many years following the somewhat underwhelming End of Disclosure. The good news is that “Chemical Whore”, the first track from the (finally) upcoming new album, Worship, is fucking awesome. That will be out on November 26th through Nuclear Blast. Another pre-order locked in!
All about Nuclear Blast today. Suffocation have announced a new live album, Live in North America, which will be out on November 12th. A video for the first single, “Funeral Inception”, can be viewed right here. Some of the photos in that clip are awesome. Jealous.
Holy crap and then we have Khemmis. Their next studio album, Deceiver, will be out on November 19th through Nuclear Blast as well. The video for the first single from that album, “Living Pyre”, is available directly below. What a wonderful way to end a week.

Today, we begin with Grethor, an extreme black / death metal band from Virginia who have a sizable list of EP’s under their belt but also will be releasing their debut full length, Damnatio Memoriae, on January 26, 2018 via Edgewood Arsenal. The band has come together to share their ten favorite albums so head inside to see what they chose. Continue reading →
