Hanging Garden Posts “Elysium” Lyric Video

Today you can watch the brand new lyric video for “Elysium,” taken from the forthcoming album “I Am Become” by the masters of Finnish melancholia, Hanging Garden.

The band’s fifth full-length album focuses thematically on an inexorable aspect of life, as well as it’s antonym: death.

The songs contain epitaphs and obituaries in the band’s native tongue, to keep the full meaning and connotations of the words intact.

The powerful voices of familiar guests vocalists from bands such as Amorphis and Amoral can also be heard on the album, adding to its dark and compelling atmosphere. “I Am Become” is due out October 27th, 2017 on Lifeforce Records.

Hideous Rebirth Posts “Desecration Seance” Lyric Video

Barbaric death-grinders Hideous Rebirth just premiered lyric video single “Desecration Seance,” taken from the group’s forthcoming album, “La Fosa Comun.”

“It’s about disgruntled spirits,” states bassist/vocalist Cris Gutierrez, “luring us into their realm in order to take over our physical bodies and take their revenge on humanity. ‘La Fosa Común” is a burial ground of unidentified people’s who never really rested properly, so this ties into the album perfectly. Lyrics mixed with rituals, spirits, and brutality make a good fit for Hideous Rebirth.”

New album “La Fosa Comun” is set for release October 27th, 2017 via Gore House Productions on CD and digital formats. Pre-orders are online here.

Complete Failure Streaming New Song “Fist First, Second To None”

Pittsburgh’s Complete Failure is now streaming the second new track off forthcoming album, “Crossburner.” The track, another aggressive slab of grind and hardcore titled “Fist First, Second to None” is streaming below.

“Crossburner” will be released worldwide by Season of Mist on October 27th. Regarding the new track, vocalist Joe Mack comments: “‘Fist First, Second to None’ is the most important track on the album. Its a track about being rendered defenseless in society. Backed into a corner. I don’t speak for any definitive groups of people or small circles or communities or even anyone else in this band for that matter, but in my life I’ve found that there are very very few things to be considered 100% truth.

“One of those truths is that we as a people individually are not in any way shape or form ‘created equal’ and to attempt to live as such would be purely ignorant and morally wrong on all imaginable levels. What one single decision that’s right for some could be the complete opposite for others. Whats right for tomorrow might not be whats right for today.”

New album “Crossburner” was recorded by the band, and features album art and design by Joe Mack. The track listing is available below.

Crossburner by COMPLETE FAILURE

1. Schadenfreude
2. Bimoral Narcotic
3. Man-made Maker
4. Suicide Screed of Total Invincibility
5. I Am The Gun
6. Rat Heart
7. Curse of Birth
8. Demise of The Underdog
9. Fist First, Second To None
10. Flight of The Head Case
11. Soft White and Paid For
12. Oath of Unbecoming
13. Misuse Abuse Reuse
14. A List With Names On It
