COMESS Premiere New Video “Pit Dweller” From Upcoming New Album “Botched & Flailed”

Louisville, Kentucky-based extreme metal unit COMESS will release their annihilating Botched & Flailed full-length next month. Captured by Tom Curtis of Dead Bird Studios in Louisville, Kentucky and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell, Vallenfyre) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon, the record boasts eleven tracks of noise-strewn, nihilistic, audio bedlam.

Comments the band:”Botched & Flailed, being our first record, was a huge success in our eyes. We captured something many bands with many more resources strive to achieve. We spent countless hours making every second count, making it the best it could be.Through the ease and mastery of tracking and mixing with Tom Curtis, to the final touches by the heavy music god Brad Boatright, we feel we have created one hell of a punishing record.”

Botched & Flailed will be self-released on June 15th on CD and all digital platforms with preorders to be announced soon.

In the meantime, check out the maniacal video clip for “Pit Dweller” below.

Unflesh Announce Debut Album “Savior” & Share Trailer

Unflesh is proud to announce their debut record, Savior, which is set for release on May 25th. Savior will strongly appeal to fans of Arsis, Dissection, Necrophagist, Naglfar, Emperor, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Obscura, Dimmu Borgir, Alterbeast, and Revocation. You can listen to an extended Unflesh- Savior album teaser video below:

Unflesh Vocalist/Guitarist Ryan Beevers says regarding Savior:

“I’ve always thought of the band as having a kind of mixed sound of 90’s black metal and more technical death metal bands. Since the band started I just called us “Extreme Metal” because it’s a broader label. I never thought the sound of the band would be described as just black metal or death metal. When the first EP “Transcendence to Eternal Obscurity” came out, most people seemed to identify the sound as technical death metal. This album is one more step forward in molding the sound of Unflesh, musically and lyrically the “Savior” album is a lot darker and more aggressive than our previous EP.”

Samael Posts New Video, “Rite Of Renewal” Online

Swiss extreme metal legends Samael (whose frontman Vorph was recently interviewed here,) has posted a new video online for the song, “Rite Of Renewal.” Speaking about the video, the band stated:

“This is the first song from ‘Hegemony’ that we presented live and it became an instant classic. The video was shot in Les Docks in Lausanne during the first show that followed the release of ‘Hegemony,’ it was latter edited by Sergey Ulyanov who previously worked on other visuals for us. The song itself is a mid/up tempo track that shows a more technical side of our music. The dynamic is kept by altering fast and dense parts with open and heavy ones until the grand final with super heavy riffs and apocalyptic keyboard parts. What better title for a song than ‘Rite of Renewal’ to start a new year? 2018 here we go!”
