SCOUR: Brand New Track From Extreme Metal Legion Uniting Current/Past Members Of Down, Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Cattle Decapitation, Animosity, And Misery Index

 

An extreme metal supergroup with a pedigree covered in viscera, SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Forged in 2015, the band’s punishing mix of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.

 

 

Red will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats on November 3rd. Preorders are currently available at this LOCATION.

 

Red EP Track Listing: 
1. Red

2. Piles

3. Bleak

4. Barricade

5. Sentenced

6. Shank

Introducing: Following The Signs

Introducing: Following The Signs

 

Following The Signs are a newly formed band from Cork, Ireland. By their own description, ‘Following The Signs are a four piece metal band from Cork City writing banging heavy riffs, blistering drums, cheeky basslines and diverse heavy vocals’. 

They have just released their first track ‘To Light A Fire’ from their forthcoming debut EP. Which we shall link below… 

There’s definitely enough here to clearly see this band have a lot of potential. Their brand of Hardcore with metallic influence is well constructed and a very solid first release.  I was particularly impressed with the guitar work on this track. The Bass playing is also very good and solid drumming throughout.

They’ll undoubtedly improve as they grow as a band, and the signs are clearly there to see that this band are firmly heading in the right direction!

I’ll be keeping a solid eye on this band as they progress.

One to watch!

7.8/10

THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA: “Vengeful Flavors” Video From French Death Metal Legion; Resurrect Preorders Available

 

Resurrect is the forthcoming second full-length from French death metal legion THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA. In advance of its release next month via Unique Leader, No Clean Singing is hosting the official premiere of the visual accompaniment to fourth cut, “Vengeful Flavors,” issuing, “Flames play a prominent role in the eye-catching video you’re about to see, along with vistas of smoke-belching factories and pine-shrouded mountainsides. But given the nature of the music, you might expect to see those factories battered into rubble, the mountains fragmented into gravel, and the timber scythed to the ground like stalks of wheat.”

Resurrect will see release on October 13th via Unique Leader Records. Preorder bundles are available at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE where you can also hear previously released single “Dogmes Anxiogenesis.”

Said the band of the self-produced offering, “We conditioned ourselves to unleash our primal influences; it’s a back-to-the-roots process with old-school riffs tuned to a more modern sound. We are proud of this combination. Each song has its own identity. We recorded, mixed, and mastered the entire album by ourselves at our own studio, Spike Recording Studio, which allowed us to keep every step of the production process under control. This gave us the time and freedom to really develop our sound. This album imposes an ambience with many twists and surprises and the songs structures are more mature. This is a new chapter for the band but also for the Architect, the main character of THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA‘s concept which takes place through a post-apocalyptic world. The artwork reflects THE WALKING DEAD ORCHESTRA‘s universe and illustrates each situation our main character goes through.”

HAEMORRHAGE Issues Video For Title Track To New Album; We Are The Gore LP Nears Early October Release Through Relapse Records

 

Spain’s long-running purveyors of gore, HAEMORRHAGE, present a new official video for “We Are The Gore,” the title track to their impending seventh LP, approaching release through Relapse Records in early October.

 

Founding HAEMORRHAGE guitarist/vocalist Luisma states of the new video, “How to capture the essence of the album in one video? A difficult challenge. We talked about this with the director and he managed to answer this question with images. Our best video so far. Sick and dark…”

We Are The Gore is set for release on October 6th on CD, LP, and Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital order are available via Relapse.com HERE and all streaming services AT THIS LOCATION.

 

 

HAEMORRHAGE is set tospew forth their most ferociously (de)composed album to date with their seventh studio album We Are The Gore. Embalmed at Mpire Studio in Madrid by Alfredo and Javi Ustara and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails, Skinless), We Are The Gore embodies fourteen tracks and thirty-five blood-soaked minutes of pathological gore, ideal for listening to in mortuaries and mausoleums. With numerous guest appearances from current and former members of Carcass, Impaled, Dead Infection, Ghoul, Gruesome Stuff Relish and others, HAEMORRHAGEtakes their nauseating blend of scalpel-sharp riffs, triple threat guttural vocals, and bone-scraping rhythms to a new extreme. One listen to We Are The Gore will leave you soaked in buckets of bile and feeling like a freshly made cadaver.

NEKRASOV: One-Man Black Metal Assault To Release The Mirror Void Via Prosthetic Records This November; New Track Streaming + Pre-orders Available

 

Australian one-man band NEKRASOV continues to orbit between the two poles of power electronics and black metal, but the singular focus on otherworldliness remains consistent, and while the experience is challenging to the utmost, it is also ultimately rewarding.

 For over twenty years, NEKRASOV has managed to produce a furious and manic sound while experimenting with a broad spectrum of avant-garde techniques beginning with his first release, Into The No-Man’s Sphere Of The Ancient Days, in 2007. With ambient and industrial elements colliding against his black metal roots along with abstract vocals that approach the noise of the guitar, NEKRASOV has carved out and created his own niche and cult following. His seventh full length, and first for Prosthetic Records, The Mirror Void, is set to be released on November 10th, 2017. 

Whatever pleases you, keeps you back to stream in full here: 

 

The Mirror Void will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats via Prosthetic Records. For preorders point your browser HERE.

 

The Mirror Void Track Listing:

1. Whatever Pleases You, Keeps You Back

2. Fragmentation And The Rapid Quicksand Of Concept

3. And That You Think Yourself To Be! Such Deceit!

4. The Ignorance Of The 5 Elements

5. The Mirror Void

6. Boils And Fevers Clear The Body Of Impurities

7. To Be Bound Is Effortless, Feel The Ease Dear One And Wrap Your Arms Around Your Broken Realm With Heart Eternal

 

The Mirror Void is black metal reimagined. Not the tamed and domesticated sound possessed by so many bands today, not just another cool extreme metal subgenre, but instead, an alternative history where black metal dives deeper into its most challenging tendencies and embraces what philosopher Nick Land would term the Radical Outside. Here, misanthropy is not enough, seeing as how hating mankind would still be assigning it some sort of significance. This isn’t inhumanity, this is Unhumanity, the universe existing without us. Not unlike the negative metal NEKRASOV‘s other project, Rebel Wizard, this is just more disturbing and alarming. NEKRASOV is reminiscent of some unhallowed Lovecraftian vault, where the dreamer meets his dream: the abyss of mind and space alike, where he compositionally depicts the hinges in the deep recesses of the mind, that only a visionary can uncover. Once revealed, it’s up to the listener on whether he or she can handle the outcome.
