New Video Clip “Dunderhead” Posted By Obese

Dutch stoner sludge act Obese released a video clip for the new song “Dunderhead.” The song appears on the new album “Anamnesis,” which will be released as a CD and digital download on October 20th via Argonauta Records. Pre-orders can be had at this location.

1. Agony
2. Dunderhead
3. Mother Nurture
4. Anthropoid
5. Human Abstract
6. Ymir

Haemorrhage premieres a new song and video entitled “Transporting Cadavers”, taken from the upcoming new album “We Are The Gore”, which Relapse Records will release on October 06th.

Check out now “Transporting Cadavers” below.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Luisma of the clip:

“We decided to record some footage in studio during our recording, but we didn’t know what we would use it for. ‘Transporting Cadavers‘ is one of the most intense songs in the album and we thought that it would be cool to make a video out of that studio footage. It perfectly catches the studio ambience during the recording of We Are The Gore.”

Comeback Kid Premieres New Song & Video “Surrender Control” From Upcoming New Album “Outsider”

Canada’s hardcore outfit Comeback Kid premieres a new song and video entitled “Surrender Control”, taken from the upcoming new album “Outsider”, which is going to be released on September 8, 2017 via New Damage Records (Canada) and Nuclear Blast (worldwide).

Check out now “Surrender Control” below.

Comments singer Andrew Neufeld on the video:

“Surrender Control is one of the first songs we wrote for this new album. Stu brought the original idea to the table and we messed around revising it for months leading up to the recording. We flew to Europe a day early before our last tour to shoot the video in Frankfurt, Germany with our friend Daniel Prieß. The song’s theme deals with the uphill battle some of us deal with while facing the perils of excess with anxiety.”

Almanac Unveils New Album “Kingslayer”

Victor Smolski’s Almanac stands for a new dimension of symphonic power metal, featuring three singers: Jeannette Marchewka (Lingua Mortis Orchestra), Andy B. Franck (Brainstorm) and David Readman (Pink Cream 69).

In March of 2016, Almanac unleashed debut album “Tsar,” followed by a European tour alongside Orden Ogan, as well as EU headline tour in the spring. Within the past few weeks, Almanac completed the recording of a second long player entitled “Kingslayer,” which was recorded at HeyDay Studios in Wuppertal, Germany.

“Our second strike is complete,” reveals guitar player Victor Smolski. He goes on to say, “’Kingslayer’ is the logical follow-up to ‘Tsar,’ just more compact, heavier and faster. The experience now under our belts gained from our many live experiences, including the two tours and festivals, has been fully implemented in the studio. The band has grown closer and stronger, you can feel this unified energy within the new tracks. We took a lot of time and gave our very best. ‘Kingslayer’ is a crafted metal album with a lively power sound!”

New album “Kingslayer” will be released on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork was once again created by Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák (Accept, Destruction).

Enslaved Finishes Work On New Album

It is accomplished – the Norwegian progressive extreme metal crew Enslaved just completed the recording process on a 14th full-length album.

In the renowned Fascination Street Studios, Jens Bogren polished this new raw diamond with his mixing and mastering skills. Just like for predecessor “In Times” (reviewed here) the metal veterans from Bergen still never look back and keep on expanding their horizons.

“I’m always psyched and proud when we finish an album recording, and this is no exception!” states singer Grutle Kjellson. “It was a really exciting process this time, with the line-up change and everything, so although it wasn’t a dramatic change, the band dynamics were suddenly different. But, it was like a little re-boot, a fresh start so to speak. The studio sessions were great, and we all feel that we have done something truly amazing. We hope you’ll enjoy it. Ugh!”

Stay tuned for full info to arrive later in the summer. Enslaved will also be touring the UK and Ireland as support to Opeth in November:

Nov 15th – Manchester, O2 Ritz
Nov 16th – Glasgow, Barrowlands
Nov 17th – Belfast, Limelight
Nov 18th – Dublin, Academy

Rabid Bitch Of The North Releasing “Nothing But A Bitter Taste” Album

Traditional metal trio Rabid Bitch Of The North will release “Nothing But a Bitter Taste” this August 18th via Hostile Media.

“‘Nothing But a Bitter Taste’ has essentially been several years in the making. For the first time in over 10 years of performing live we had to find time to take off, go to our studio, and do this album justice,” comments band frontman Joe McDonnell. “This is a concrete slab of that classic British sounding metal. It’s something straight off a NWOBHM compilation cassette. A varied spectrum of styles and tempos, and each track has its own story. It is heavy metal with rock n roll, but it is definitely progressive sounding from the previous EP and singles we’ve released.”

The album was recorded by guitarist Gerard Mulholland. “Gerrys production has been a learn as you work approach. Using his skills built up from years of making our demos and singles,” Joe adds regarding the recording process. “What we wanted to achieve was a record that captured our unique character, as well sounding like a record that we would listen to. We wanted it to sound like the metal we like, which is anything from the golden era of heavy metal. Maybe a few Judas Priest records were points of reference at times, but the album was never based on one particular sound.”

1. The Missionary
2. Chance
3. Nothing But A Bitter Taste
4. Gilded Men
5. God Of Punishment
6. Demon Mind
7. Defending Two Castles
8. Trapped In 1999
