Jirm (f.k.a Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus) To Release “Surge Ex Monumentis” – Debut New Track

Sometimes in life you have to make a change. And sometimes you have to make a whole bunch of changes. So it is that Jirm is born and stands where once stood Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus. Having dropped the cumbersome moniker, the Swedish heavy rockers embark on a new era with Surge Ex Monumentis – marked as much by a tightening of sound as name.

Surge Ex Monumentis will see release on CD, digital, and limited edition 2xLP formats via Small Stone on March 16th. Stream the opening track, “Candle Eyes” below.

Ilsa Premiere New Song “Hikikomori” From Upcoming New Album “Corpse Fortress”

Ilsa weaves together tales of depravity and devil worship on their Relapse debut Corpse Fortress. Recorded by Kevin Bernsten (Full Of Hell, Code Orange, Magrudergrind, Integrity) in Baltimore, Maryland at Developing Nations, Corpse Fortress delivers nine tracks forged in filth with dense layers of emotionally draining sludge, murky, primordial doom, and feedback-laden, crusty death metal. Corpse Fortress is easily the rawest, most abhorrent, and nasty album in Ilsa’s decade-long career and the perfect soundtrack for the initiated miscreants of this rapidly dying orb.

Stream Ilsa’s new track “Hikikomori” below:

Corpse Fortress will see release March 2nd, 2018 on CD, LP, deluxe LP and digital formats via Relapse Records.

Corpse Fortress Track Listing:

1. Hikikomori
2. Nasty, Brutish
3. Cosmos Antinomos
4. Prosector

6. Long Lost Friend
7. Ruckenfigur
8. Polly Vaughn
9. Drums Of Dark Gods

Endorphins Lost Premiere New Song “Mercy For One” From Upcoming Split Release

Seattle-based Endorphins Lost announces an impending split 7” with OSK set for release in February, which will be supported by a Western US tour in March.

Endorphins Lost released their debut LP, Choose Your Way, through Six Weeks Records in November 2016, unabashedly introducing the masses to their blistering style of metallic, grinding, crust/powerviolence. The band will now stomp a fresh dose of salt into the wounds inflicted by their debut with four scathing new tracks, sharing a slab of 7” vinyl with their allies in Canadian grind/hardcore outfit OSK who add three tracks to the flipside. The Endorphins Lost tracks were recorded in March 2017 by Mike at Soundhouse Studios in Seattle, Washington, with additional vocals recorded by Dylan Ludwig at Raven Sound Studio in Prescott, Arizona, and mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studio in Oakland, California. The OSK tracks were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jesse Gander at Hive Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia in the spring of 2013.

Swedish Black Metal band Grafvitnir have announced the December 15 Carnal Records release of new album Keys to the Mysteries Beyond. A promo video for the album’s opening track, “Nidhögg,” is available below.

The driving force behind the band is, and has always been, Occultism and the never-ending quest for the enigmatic emerald of Lucifer. Just like razor sharp claws of a Werewolf move and twists against whirling moonlit Night Skies, the ice-cold blades of Occultism will tear the illusion of the demiurg’s false Creation apart and fiercely widen the cracks and crevices to the ancient kingdom of Beyond.

With the band’s fifth album, Grafvitnir are back from the frostbitten shadows of Scandinavia to eternally ignite the concealed spiritual Fire of the descendants of the Serpent, and to obtain the ancient Keys to the Mysteries Beyond.

Track Listing

1. Nidhögg
2. Key to the Mysteries Beyond
3. Vargavinter
4. Crossing the Abyss
5. Eternity’s Glistening Black
6. Journey into Storms
7. Unleash the Storm of Nothingness
8. Eye of Lucifer
9. Whispers of the Primordial Sea
10. Glimpses of the Unseeable
