Conveyer Debuts Title Track From Upcoming New Album “No Future”

Conveyer debuts the title track from the band’s upcoming new album “No Future”, which will arrive in stores on June 23rd through Victory Records.

Check out now “No Future” below.

Comments vocalist Danny Adams :

“‘No Future‘ is the title track for the record because we felt it had to be as straight-forward as the meaning behind it. Human beings are meant to exist in a perfect place, but we’ve somehow deprived ourselves of the desire to venerate perfect things. I’m constantly reminded that I’m unequipped to accept that my existence is limited to this life. It’s also not a typical sounding Conveyer song – we wanted to bleed out some older influences like Buried Alive and Figure Four.”

Tarlung Streams “Beyond The Black Pyramid” Album

Austrian group Tarlung released new album “Beyond The Black Pyramid” on May 5th, 2017 via Black Bow Records. You can stream the full release below, or get your own copy at Bandcamp here. The following press release was also issued:

“Dense and suffocating, Tarlung’s music crawls along ponderously, squeezing the life out of its listeners. This kind of expression in sludge is rarely done but ends up being most satisfying.

“The riffs command the direction, as within the mire of the deafening sludge you have catchy hooks and memorable tunes. Influences from closely related genres such as death metal and even stoner doom coalesce to form their monolithic sound. Listen to one of the heaviest albums in this style and quiver under its might.”

1. It Waits In The Dark 01:50
2. Dying Of The Light 08:16
3. Mud Town 06:27
4. Kings And Graves 09:47
5. The Prime Of Your Existence 10:56
6. Resignation 04:02
7. Born Dead 09:13
8. Beyond The Black Pyramid 07:29
9. Karma 08:21

Fumigation Releasing Split CD With The Path To R’lyeh

Like a Lovecraftian novel, death metal knows no bounds. It’s themes are often filled with outlandish creatures and horrors that challenge the everyday monotony of our existence. It’s through these musical and lyrical themes that we are afforded an opportunity to truly be free… to live among the creatures that dwell in our subconscious minds.

Straight from the deepest, darkest recesses of the mind is born a partnership of musical aberration crawling from the murk as Fumigation and The Path To R’lyeh come together. This brutal two-some joined forces for a CDN Records split CD, aptly-titled “Invasion.”

01. Arachnophobia
02. Forced Vaginal Harbourage
03. Earwigs & Earwax
04. A Beard Full of Maggots

05. Dream Eater
06. The Book Made of Human Skin
07. Extra-Terrestrial Abomination
08. Y’ha-ntlei’s Awakening

Society 1 Announces New Album “Rise From The Dead”

Southern California’s industrial metal group Society 1 has inked a deal with DSN Music to release upcoming album “Rise From The Dead,” scheduled for release this March.

Society 1, which was founded in 1996 by the infamous Lord Zane on lead vocals, also features veteran guitarist Maxxxwell Carlisle, bassist Dirt Von Karloff, and drummer Iorden Mitev.

“It feels good to be back at it again, like an old lover who fucked you better than anyone before or after” said Zane during a decadent signing party at the DSN Music complex in Malibu, CA. “Everyone has those moments when you resurrect and reinvent. This album ‘Rise From The Dead’ is one of those moments.”

The comeback for Zane follows a hiatus during which he established a successful Hollywood career as a music video director, working on projects with such acts as Zakk Wylde, John 5, DMC, Wayne Static, and Orgy. “For me this isn’t so much of a return for the band but more a return of
my understanding of how necessary musical exploration is to my existence,” said Zane.

Plasmodium Streaming “Entheognosis” Album

Plasmodium – an abstract black / death metal band hailing from Australia – is now streaming new album “Entheognosis” online in full.

You can listen in the below, and the band also comments: “Plasmodium exists to haunt the thresholds of outer knowledge. By means of our continuing experiments into auditory hallucinations, we have formed a vortex as a Tetrahemihexahedron. From its ghastly blazing eye the sounds of matter and time weep through the untempered schizm.

“It is by our will and sinew that the corruptive metageometric viral code is granted earthly form. Amidst the howls of silurian reproductive fever there is but one true sound, the audible doctrines of our photoabysmic sacerdotalism. Know that to accept our existence is to open egress to the oubliette, there can be no return or no explanation.”

1. Limbic Disassociation
2. Reformoculus
3. Hermaphrodisiac
4. Deuteromitosis
