Bible Black Tyrant Signs With Argonauta Records

Argonauta Records has inked a deal with Bible Black Tyrant to release a new album this coming February:

“We’re excited to welcome in our roster U.S. supergroup Bible Black Tyrant, an oppressive sonic endeavor that features Tyler Smith, Aaron D.C. Edge and David S. Fylstra (members of Eagle Twin, Lumbar, KVØID, Form of Rocket, Minor Fret, Wasting Seasons, Iamthethorn, etc.). Their impressive album ‘Regret Beyond Death’ will be released during February 2018 on CD/DD (Argonauta Records) – vinyl (Cheddar Brothers Records), cassette (Anima Recordings).

“Beginning with a crushing density, Bible Black Tyrant’s ‘Regret Beyond Death’ offering immediately transports the listener into the dark forests of the Pacific Northwest at dusk; conjuring images of the sun setting against indecipherable, deciduous silhouettes. The air thickens as we continue a climb along a gently worn route to an unknown, undisclosed location.

“As the journey – and the record – lengthens, we are granted a strong scent of smoke and hemlock, of moss. Fear swirls ’round us now, fusing with the clamorous chants of a distant, uprising swarm, a loaded weight of atmospheric composition. Onward, and as the album nears its climactic conclusion, Bible Black Tyrant’s simultaneously oppressive and liberating mass projects a clear message written in the smoldering ashes: ‘Walk this path with us.'”

“The Labyrinth” is the smoldering new full-length from Oakland’s old school death metal group Necrot, which features within its ranks current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, and Watch Them Die. In advance of its release, today you can hear “Rebirth In Chaos” below.

Tracked at Lennon Studios by the late great Jef “Leppard” Davis and at Earhammer Studios with Greg Wilkinson, and mastered at Mammoth Sound by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Toxic Holocaust), fans of the coffin-toned, bone-crush of Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, Sacrilege and the like should pay heed.

2. Contagious Pain
3. Into The Labyrinth
4. The End
5. Cycles of Pain
6. Scattered

Apophys Posts “The Antidote” Playthrough Video

Dutch death metal squad Apophys – which unites members of God Dethroned, Prostitute Disfigurement, Detonation and Toxocara among others – will uncork the smoldering “Prime Incursion” debut full-length in less than two weeks via Metal Blade Records.

As another “Prime Incursion” teaser, today Gear Gods is hosting the play-through video accompaniment to “The Antidote,” which can be seen below. Apophys comments:

“‘The Antidote’ is a death metal must. The drums are fast, the riffs are fast, the vocals are fast, you get the picture. The song tells a story of humanity’s ultimate cure for itself, a final solution as people start to transform into beings that are focused on nothing other than consumption. This gives it a twist one could see relevant to our current society. Eventually the urge to consume backfires resulting in humanity consuming itself and thus, providing the answer to the final problem; us.”

Circuitry Shares The Band’s “Perfect Vision”

You can pre-order the album at this location, and the new song “Perfect Vision” is available for streaming below, thanks to Metal Insider.

The music on the forthcoming 10-track debut was carefully crafted over the past year in disconsolate, Warren, NJ, and disdainful Long Branch, NJ and is tenfold more infectious and devastating than the dreaded Ebola virus. God save your miserable souls.

2. Safe Words
3. Watch Our Shadows Cast (streaming here)
4. The Monster in Her Womb
5. Unplug
6. Horizon

Wizard Rifle Announces New Album “Here In The Deadlights”

The Los Angeles-by-way-of-Portland stoner, doomed out, mathrock conjurers from Wizard Rifle are very pleased to unveil their brand new full-length in the form of the smoldering five-track “Here In The Deadlights.”

Set for release via Seventh Rule Recordings later this month, the follow-up to 2012’s “Speak Loud Say Nothing” full-length (reviewed here) was tracked by guitarist Max Dameron over three weeks at Breakfast Studio in Los Angeles, then toiled over for a year, with Billy Anderson (Sleep, Eyehategod, Melvins et al) and Jesse Johnstone sharing mixing duties.

The band’s previous album saw Wizard Rifle earn a nomination for best newcomer of 2012 during our annual year-end awards.

The new album “Here In The Deadlights” sees Wizard Rifle for the first time as a trio featuring Dameron alongside, drummer Sam Ford, and bassist David Boe pushing the band’s sound into far sludgier realms and reaching new levels of monolithic heaviness. The track listing is as follows:

1. Crystal Witch
2. Buzzsaw Babes
3. Paul The Sky Tyrant
4. Psychodynamo
5. Beastwhores

Dutch band Herder has posted the song “Feet Eager To Run To Evil” online, which is taken from the upcoming “Horror Vacui” 12″ to be released on Reflections Records on November 13th, 2012. The song can be heard below, and pre-orders are available online at this location. Reflections Records also comments:

“The possible survivors of the smoldering crater that the Herder debut album left after impact, are now completely finished off with a furious death stab to the neck. No mercy, no positivity, no sobriety. Only the strong will be left standing, the rest will have their throats ripped out.

“Filth ridden bass, crushing triple guitars, thunderous hammering drums and genuinely pissed off vocals lay down the soundtrack for prison shanking, bar brawls, heavy smoking and lizard night drives at high speed! Lock up your wives, daughters, and well, your dogs too just to be sure. ‘Horror Vacui’ is the new weapon against human morale and it fucking destroys! FOAD – HERDER IS HARDER!”
