Video Clip For New Song “Piss Wreck” Posted By King Parrot

This Friday, Australian grind practitioners King Parrot will unleash the maniacal fruit of their “Ugly Produce” full-length. Slated for release on September 22nd in North America via Housecore Records, in Europe via Agonia Records and in Australia via EVP Recordings, “Ugly Produce” is a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems. Recorded at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster’s Jason Fuller, this is no walk in the park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Ugly Produce is a twisted, cantankerous ride through an outback graveyard, high on PCP, wreaking of animal feculence.

In advance of this week’s release, the band has unsheathed a hilarious new video clip for “Piss Wreck” viewable in the player at the bottom.

“Ugly Produce” will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are currently available at the official King Parrot website over here. Digital preorders – which come with an instant download of “Ten Pounds Of Shit In A Five Pound Bag” – are available via Apple Music and iTunes.

“Ugly Produce” fuses the raw fury of King Parrot’s critically-lauded debut album “Bite Your Head Off” and mashes it with the twisted sophistication of the Aria-nominated follow-up “Dead Set.” A repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock, the band’s unique, over-the-top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on “Ugly Produce” while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with: angst, aggression, absurdity, and antics.

Details Of New Album “We Owe You Nothing” Posted By Forgotten Tomb, New Single Streaming

“We Owe You Nothing”, the ninth studio album from Italian black/doom metal overlords Forgotten Tomb, is set to be released on October 27th in Europe and November 10th in North America via Agonia Records. The album’s title track & first single is available in the form of a lyric video, which you can enjoy at the bottom.

The album marks the highest point in the band’s constant evolution and once more makes it hard to narrow down its sound to some pre-existing labels. Effortlessly blending the eerie, dissonant black metal sound the band is well-known for with muscular sludge/doom riffs and a subtle, nihilistic punk attitude, “We Owe You Nothing” defines the band’s personality more than ever, reaffirming its unique sound.

Starting in the beginning of the millennium with bona fide classics such as “Songs to Leave” (2002), “Springtime Depression” (2003) and “Love’s Burial Ground” (2004) – widely considered among the true originators of the so-called “Depressive Black Metal” sub-genre – the band explored increasingly heavier and broader territories with all the albums that followed, from the genre-shattering avant-garde of “Negative Megalomania” (2007) through the pitch-black rocking-vehicle “Under Saturn Retrograde” (2011), then perfecting the band’s own black/doom formula with the harsher tones of “…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil” (2012) and “Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love” (2015).

The band commented: “Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. ‘We Owe You Nothing’ closes the third trilogy which started with ‘…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil’ followed by ‘Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love’ and it’s the heaviest among the 3 albums, with an emphasis on slower/mid tempos and a sludgier approach while retaining also our trademark melodies and dissonant arpeggios, plus some twists which open new doors to the next era of the band. Due to circumstances surrounding it, it’s been an extremely painful album to make and therefore it’s one of our darkest, while being also filled with raw energy”.

Recording-sessions started in December 2016, with drums being tracked at Big Pine Creek studio in Italy, but were abruptly interrupted when singer/guitarist Ferdinando “HM” M. was involved in a life-threatening car accident that left him unable to play for months. The recording was resumed and completed in May 2017 at SPVN Studio in Italy, while mix and mastering were done in June 2017 at Planet-Z studio (Hadley, Massachussets, USA) by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Rob Zombie, Six Feet Under, Crowbar, Hatebreed).

The track listing and cover artwork can be found here:

1. We Owe You Nothing
2. Second Chances
3. Saboteur
4. Abandon Everything
5. Longing For Decay
6. Black Overture
