American death metal stalwarts has announced that they have recruited Autumn’s End guitarist Chris Cannella to their ranks, replacing previous guitarist Mark English (also of Monstrosity.) A statement on the band’s official Facebook page reads as follows:

“Our long time friend from Arizona, Chris Cannella recently started spending a lot of time in Florida for work. Immediately we began hanging out. We realized he was the missing piece of the puzzle.

“Together we are a musical match. We all work together and get along as if Chris has been in the band since it’s inception.

“Cannella has the experience of being a veteran in the industry as well as a guitar clinician across the globe-who lives and loves Metal!

“So please, let’s all welcome Chris Cannella as the official new guitar player of DEICIDE! We want to thank Mark English for stepping in during this transitional period.

“We will be seeing all of you across the world bringing our music to you more brutally than ever!

In addition to his work with Autumn’s End, Cannella is known for his role as a demo player for such guitar companies as Dean, Fender and Jackson among others, as well as being a member of the recently announced supergroup Bloodmoon Ritual, alongside former Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes, Dark Angel guitarist and bassist Eric Meyer and Michael Gonzalez and former Sacred Reich drummer Greg Hall.

Memoriam (Ex-Bolt Thrower, Etc.) Premiere New Music Video For “Nothing Remains”

A new music video for Memoriam‘s (ex-Bolt Thrower) song “Nothing Remains” has been premiered and is streaming for you below. March 23rd has been announced as the release date for the group’s sophomore album, “The Silent Vigil“, out via Nuclear Blast Records.

The band commented of the track:

“‘Nothing Remains‘ is about dementia and in particular about Karl‘s mother‘s struggle with this condition. The video is showing the experience of loss and dissolution brought about by the disease in the burning of old family portraits of Karl‘s mother and family, parents of Memoriam members and of friends as well as random strangers. Similar to us all being of the same blood as expressed in the previously released ‘Bleed the Same‘ we also all die and decay the same.”

Nightmarer (The Ocean, Ex-War From A Harlots Mouth) Premiere “Death/Swansong”

Nightmarer (The Ocean, ex-War From A Harlots Mouth, etc.) debut “Death/Swansong” from their new effort, “Cacophony Of Terror“, which will be out on March 23rd via Season Of Mist.

Says guitarist Simon Hawemann of the track:

“Our track ‘Death‘ marks the inevitable end of ‘Cacophony of Terror‘ – it is the final stage of a battle that was never meant to be won. My inspiration for this song was all too real: I had to witness a person close to me decease over the course of several days. The riffs and sounds in ‘Death‘ reflect the heavy breathing, the tortured moans, and the spasms of a dying human being – sights and sounds that are burned into my memory forever.

This experience served as a morbidly twisted foundation to give death itself an appropriate soundtrack. Once it’s all over, ‘Death‘ seamlessly makes the transitions into ‘Swansong‘, which offers nothing else than just the relief of not having to fight any longer. One could not exist without the other, so we’re premiering both tracks merged into one today.

We are thrilled to have joined forces with Alan Dubin (KHANATE/GNAW), who lent his terrifying voice to ‘Death‘. His piercing screams serve as the perfect personification of the demon that lurks in the plagued mind of the album’s protagonist. Without further ado, embrace death!”

New Song “The Singularity” Streaming From Affliktor

Wyoming’s Affliktor issued another new song from the self-titled debut record coming October 20th via Transcending Obscurity Records. Check out “The Singularity” courtest of Metal Talk at this location, or just down in the player below.

Guitarist Toby Knapp used his experience of neoclassical metal music and mashed it with his black/thrash project Affliktor. On “The Singularity” he comments: “The guitar playing is coming more from a Trey Azagthoth, Jeff Hanneman attitude than say, Steve Vai or someone truly considered virtuosic. I think there is some creativity here possibly because this is a black/death Metal album approached completely thinking out of the box.”

The track listing is:

1. Storms of Demogorgon (song streaming here)
2. Born To The Breeder
3. Backwards Into Hell
4. Chaos Magick Totality (song streaming here)
5. Burn The Earth
6. The Singularity
7. Planet Rogue
8. Nothing Shall Arise
9. Pazuzu Invoked

Sharptooth Premieres Title Track From Upcoming New Album “Clever Girl”

Sharptooth premieres the title track of the band’s upcoming new album “Clever Girl”, which will be out in stores on October 27 via Pure Noise Records.

Check out now “Clever Girl” below.

Comments vocalist Lauren Kashan of the song:

“‘Clever Girl‘ the track is all about aggressively fighting back against the hands that chain us. It’s about ‘biting back’ against oppression of all forms, be that by people in your life, in your society, or systemic forms of oppression like sexism, racism and bigotry. The song was inspired by an argument I had with a guy who tried to tell me and a bunch of other women (many of us survivors of sexual assault) about how WE should feel about sexual violence. And all I could think in that moment was SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP because this person had absolutely no right to speak on the subject, let alone talk down to us. I think anyone can relate to the experience of having someone who has no idea what they’re talking about, either trying to talk down to you or control you. This is a call to arms for any and all marginalized people for our voices to be heard and for everyone else to take this time to simply listen.”
