Body Harvest Reveals New Album “Parasitic Slavery” Details; Posts New Music Video “Consumed By Tyrants” Online

The new album from violent death metal machine Body Harvest is ready to be unleashed. Hellish visions of alternate realities, where humanity is enslaved and slaughtered, consumed by ravenous beasts, the endless screams echoing through the dark tunnels of the harvesting chambers; “Parasitic Slavery” brings this nightmare scenario to bloody, brutal life.

Since being dreamt into life in the last dark days of 2011 by guitarists Jake Ettle-lles and Gareth Nash, Body Harvest have pursued their goal of creating the ultimate distillation of death metal with ferocious intensity, driving themselves onwards without respite. Their “Futile Creation” debut was released in 2014 and was, by any standards, a mighty opening salvo of classic death metal song writing, infused with staggering speed and viciousness; but Body Harvest wanted more – more venomous velocity, more infectious, inescapable riffs, more overwhelming sinister atmosphere, more sheer, bone-breaking heaviness.

For the next four years they played with the genre greats; Mass Infection, Exhumed, Vital Remains, Gorguts, Vader, Immolation and Cannibal Corpse, going toe to toe with the best in the business, always learning, competing, growing in poisonous potency. Now they have poured everything they were and everything they have become into a boiling cauldron of chaos, to create the extreme, intimidating power of Parasitic Slavery.

Produced by Jonny Pettersson (Those Who Bring The Torture, Wombbath, Rogga Johansson) Parasitic Slavery sounds utterly devastating and with the might of Comatose Music now behind them, Body Harvest are ready to conquer the death metal world. On May 3rd this monstrosity will be set free to wreak havoc and the only conceivable outcome is total annihilation. This is the ultimate firestorm. This is the next level of death metal supremacy. This is Body Harvest – Parasitic Slavery!

Get a first taste of Parasitic Slavery with the video for “Consumed By Tyrants” below.

Monstrosity releases new single, “Kingdom of Fire”

– August 7th, 2018 –

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release The Passage Of Existence, the new studio album by Florida death metal legends Monstrosity! For a preview of The Passage Of Existence, the 2nd single, “Kingdom of Fire”, can be heard now at: youtube.com/watch?v=JmRAk5HblfY

Monstrosity‘s Lee Harrison (drums) comments: “First off, I present to you the master piece of masterpieces in the Monstrosity universe. This album requires a certain justice though and I ask you, as the listener, to properly step up to the task. Don’t play this recording on a cheap portable radio or your tiny ear buds. This album was built to be played loud on a killer system. Do yourself that favor, at least for the first few times you play it. I know it’s so horribly cliché to say ‘Play it Loud’, but I can honestly say this album is made for that. Listen to it multiple times, too. These songs are going to ‘pop’ live, too. Can’t wait to bring these songs to the stage. I’m curious to see the opinions. The response by the fans to the teaser clip we posted was super positive, so I’ll be so glad when the single is released and the years of hard work finally come to fruition. Hope to see you guys on the road soon and blast it!”

Strychnia Issues New Album Update

New Jersey’s Strychnia has checked in with the following update about working on a new album:

“With summer quickly approaching, we thought it would be a good time for us to let you all know what we’ve been up to lately. If you guys thought we were planning to slow down its actually quite the opposite.

“We’ve been locked up in our death metal laboratory for most of the year so far where Rory and Frank are writing what will become songs for whats looking like a new full length album! We are about halfway through the writing process as of now and things are really sounding BIG so far.

“The new music is sort of a combination of old and new Strychnia styles while pushing ourselves into even more brutal, technical, melodic, and epic sounds. At this point we’ll be picking up speed with the writing process and then moving on into the demoing process, lyrics, working titles, pre-production, artwork, and all that fun stuff.

“We’re also still in the process of bringing in another special guest artist on one of the new album tracks! If you enjoyed John Gallagher on the EP last year then we promise you won’t be disappointed this time around either.

“From now on we’ll also be making sure to bring you guys a lot more updates relating to the new album and everything were working on. Thanks again to everyone who is a fan of this band for the undying support! Until next time, you know what to do. Show us some love and likes for new brutality in 2014!”

The band’s previous EP “Reanimated Monstrosity” can also be heard in the Bandcamp player below.

Relapse To Reissue Death’s "Spiritual Healing" As Multi-Disc Set

The next chapter in Relapse’s Death reissue campaign will be the “Spiritual Healing” album. The label comments:

“Originally released in 1990, Spiritual Healing marked a new turn in the Death discography, one which ushered in cleaner production, a new level of boundary pushing musicianship and songwriting skills that were previously unimaginable from a metal band. Spiritual Healing sets the standard for riffs, insane time changes and of course mainman Chuck Schuldiner’s masterful guitar solos.

“Now reissued as a double CD housed in super deluxe packaging featuring brand new liner notes from Death players James Murphy and Terry Butler, Chuck’s sister Beth Schuldiner and Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen, Disc 1 features a completely new remaster of the original album and Disc 2 contains 16 previously unreleased rehearsal, outtakes and studio instrumentals. A remastered version of the track “Living Monstrosity” can be heard below.

“In addition to the 2-Disc edition, limited edition (2000 machine numbered copies) triple CD digipak will be available exclusively from Relapse.com. The third CD features a never before released live set recorded in 1990 featuring the Spiritual Healing Death line up. An iTunes deluxe edition will also be released containing 5 additional previously unreleased pre-Human rehearsal tracks not available on either of the CD versions. The entire tracklisting is available below.”

“Spiritual Healing” is set for a November 20th North American release date, November 16th in the Benelux / Germany / Finland, and November 19th in the U.K. and worldwide. “Spiritual Healing” follows the recent Relapse Records re-issues of Death classics “Individual Thought Patterns,” “The Sound of Perseverance,” “Human,” and the live collection “Vivus!”
