On February 9th, Harm’s Way will release their fourth full-length, Posthuman, via Metal Blade Records. In support of this new album, the band has announced a North American headlining tour with Ringworm, Vein, and Queensway, set to kick off on February 17th in Cleveland, OH. See below for all dates!

Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to Harm’s Way‘s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”

For a first preview of Posthuman, the single “Human Carrying Capacity” can be streamed at: metalblade.com/harmsway – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–CD
–Highlighter red/orange vinyl + download card (limited to 200 copies – USA exclusive)
–White vinyl + download card (limited to 1000 copies – USA exclusive)
–Translucent clear w/ white, blue and purple marble vinyl + download card (limited to 400 copies – USA exclusive)

–Milky-clear/blue-green-red splattered vinyl + download card (limited to 100 copies – EU exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

With producer Putney overseeing the tracking at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, New Jersey, Posthuman came together easily and fluidly. Having three weeks to track it – the longest they have ever spent on a single full-length – was definitely beneficial. “We spent the first three days there doing pre-production and refining the songs to be the best possible versions of themselves,” says Mills. “The amount of time we had in creating this record meant we were able to experiment and not have to rush with any aspect of it, and I feel it shows in the end product.” The title, Posthuman, aptly summarizes the themes of the record, reflecting a sense of not feeling like a part of the world anymore, whether that be politically, socially, ethically, or emotionally. “It very much pulls from ideas of transcendence, progression, and resilience”, Mills elaborates, “and it’s very much a push back on traditional ideas of the self and self-actualization. ‘Posthuman‘ to us is about progressing above and beyond the confines of what is considered human, in the physical, psychological, and categorical sense.”

Posthuman track-listing
1. Human Carrying Capacity
2. Last Man
3. Sink
4. Temptation
5. Become a Machine
6. Call My Name
7. Unreality
8. Dissect Me

Hamferð releases video for new single, “Frosthvarv”

– December 5th, 2017 –

Doomsters Hamferð from the Faroe Islands will release their new album, Támsins likam, on January 12th via Metal Blade Records! In anticipation of the release, the band has now launched a video for the second single, “Frosthvarv”, which can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=_IJEP40xqSg

Hamferð comments: “For years we have been working towards using video material to bring a visual aspect to our music. But not until now have we been able to produce something with the quality that we always strive for. We are extremely pleased to have found the right group of people to work with, and we believe the result to be something truly special.”

To watch the lyric video for the first single, “Hon syndrast”, please visit: metalblade.com/hamferd – where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–jewelcase CD
–180g black vinyl
–dark grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–pastel violet marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–milky clear vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–transparent blue vinyl (TUTL exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–light grey black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)

Roughly translated as “Body of the mist”, Támsins likam is an attempt to create the most intriguing, honest and unique Hamferð experience yet. It is nothing less than a pinnacle; a culmination of many years of refining both sound and songwriting, spearheaded by a strong desire to keep progressing and expanding. This has resulted in an album bustling with elements ancient and familiar, violent and strange, earthen and spectral – all the while fiercely seeking to surprise and move the listener.

Once again recorded in Studio Bloch in the Faroe Islands, but this time mixed by the legendary Swedish sound wizard Daniel Bergstrand in his Dugout Productions studio, Támsins likam exhibits a rawer and more mature version of the known Hamferð sound. The somewhat harsh and bare soundscape deliberately contrasts with the refined compositions, while at the same time aligning with the increasingly honest and violent lyrical content.

“Faroese doom metal” is a powerful sound. Exclusive to this self-styled tag is Hamferð. For a near decade, the funeral dressed sextet has been casting a unique expression rooted in conceptual tragedy and intense, narrative doom metal.

Faroese history and folklore are mixed together with grand atmospheres, a trademark that has earned worldwide attention. Stages at festivals such as Inferno, Midgardsblot, Tuska, Summer Breeze, Wacken and many more have been turned into funerary ceremonies. Touring with bands like Amorphis and Moonsorrow has further garnered the band a respected reputation due to strong yet solemn live performances.

The lyrical and conceptual approach is ambitious in scope. People are drawn to it, even though the band sings in their native tongue, Faroese. With a highly engaging idea concerning lyrics and songwriting, the hour has arrived to close a conceptual trilogy which commenced with the 2010 EP Vilst er siðsta fet, continued with the internationally acclaimed 2013 full-length album Evst, and is now concluded with Támsins likam.

Támsins likam track-listing:
01. Fylgisflog
02. Stygd
03. Tvístevndur meldur
04. Frosthvarv
05. Hon syndrast
06. Vápn í anda

Hamferð line-up:
Jon Aldara – Vocals
John Egholm – Guitar
Theodor Kapnas – Guitar
Isak Petersen – Bass
Esmar Joensen – Keyboards
Remi Johannesen – Drums

Devin Townsend & Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Speak On “Beyond The Pale” Allegedly Lifting A Strapping Young Lad Riff

The social media “riff police” has taken to calling out Machine Head’s Robb Flynn for allegedly stealing a riff off of Strapping Young Lad‘s track “Love?” in their newly released single, “Beyond The Pale“. Check out both tracks below, and read Townsend and Machine Head vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn’s discussion on the matter.

People asking me about riff similarities: I don’t have an opinion really. I’ve written riffs my whole career that sound like something else.

— Devin Townsend (@dvntownsend) November 17, 2017

I’ve used whole themes from other albums, movies or soundtracks. Art is a collage of your experiences, you taking clippings and reassemble.

— Devin Townsend (@dvntownsend) November 17, 2017

Heres the best part about comparison of MH new song to ‘Love’ I basically ripped off the SYL chorus from this song: https://t.co/0QWpBGowBD

— Devin Townsend (@dvntownsend) November 17, 2017

Shout out to @dvntownsend for being so cool. The Riff Police pulled me over, I got a $300 infraction for that one!! Like Dime bag always used to tell me “we’re all just sharing riffs man”. https://t.co/DXO8BmqTLR

— Robb Flynn (@TheGeneralMH) November 17, 2017

Got a lot of respect for you Devin, super talented musician, amazing producer (as the palaces burn production crushes all!)

And while I would proudly admit that I stole a Riff from you… Was just a happy accident.

Riff on brother!! https://t.co/G8NXNcJ9Ln

Girl Accuses Suicide Silence’s Frontman Eddie Hermida Of Sexual Misconduct

Suicide Silence/All Shall Perish frontman Hernan “Eddie” Hermida is among the latest artists to face allegations of sexual misconduct. This time, a girl, Verena Celis, has come forward to accuse Hermida of “emotionally and sexually manipulating” her while she was 17 and he was 32. She alleges that the Suicide Silence singer initiated the sending of nude photographs to each other. She alleges that Hermida had thought she had turned 18 at the time. She also goes on to provide various logs of her interactions with the musician on her Twitter account.

Furthermore, Celis claims that other girls have reached out to her citing similar behaviour by Eddie Hermida, who does not yet appear to have publicly responded to the allegations. Some of the tweets Verena Celis shared in her public accusation can be found below:

since we’re exposing pedophile band members, I have a story to tell

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

actually: proof, a thread

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

when it allllll began pic.twitter.com/QyM3t5RKNs

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

I am NOT saying it wasn’t consensual but I was totally against sending nudes but he manipulated me in doing so. I was 17.

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

This was the darkest time of my life. He manipulated me so hard and treated me so poorly I came to the point of committing suicide. And I tried. And then he was playing the victim

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

this is what I sent him on the night I tried to kill myself. I swallowed an entire bottle of xanax and painkillers but it didn’t do the job pic.twitter.com/TRsThSMe8T

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

One day he just assumed I was 18 and started sending nudes and tried to convince me I needed to, too. So I did. I NEVER did before.

— verena (@thyartismxrder) November 13, 2017

Long story short: Eddie Hermida is a manipulative cunt who has not only destroyed my life and self worth but also other girls. He tricked us into believing we were obsessive and crazy and didn’t mean shit to him. So much love for my girls who are speaking up

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Cannibal Corpse kicks off their USA tour today with Power Trip and Gatecreeper, before heading overseas in early 2018 for a European trek with The Black Dahlia Murder, No Return, and In Arkadia. See below for all dates.

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

In support of Red Before Black, Cannibal Corpse will head out on a USA tour tomorrow with Power Trip and Gatecreeper, before heading overseas in early 2018 for a European trek with The Black Dahlia Murder, No Return, and In Arkadia. See below for all dates.
