INGESTED Release New Single/Video ‘Impending Dominance’

British death metal kings INGESTED have released a crushing new single ‘Impending Dominance’, giving a taste of what can be expected from their upcoming new album.

Frontman Jason Evans commented, “We picked ‘Impending Dominance’ as the first single because it’s hard as f*ck. Simple as. This is about sacrifice, and the things you have to do to become the best. Could you step over friend and foe alike to achieve immortality? What would you give to have everything you’ve ever wanted? What would you become? The road to hell is paved with the best intentions, but are you the same at the end of the journey? 

“Huge grooves, massive slams and gargantuan riffs, it smashes you over the head from the start to finish. We f*ckin’ love it and hopefully you will too! Stay safe!”

Details on a new INGESTED record to be announced soon.

Irish Premiere: Shatter Brain – Death Goes On Official Video

Australian metal combo Shatter Brain have just revealed a new music video for their song Death Goes On, the song is taking from the debut album “Pitchfork Justice”, scheduled to be released on May 1st.via Wormholedeath Records. The video Death Goes On was premiered yesterday via Legacy.

Pitchfork Justice was recorded and mixed by Jimmy Balderston at Ghostnote Recording Studios (Scott Kelly, Sumeru, Space Bong) in Adelaide, and mastered by Dav Byrne at Iridium Audio (Witchskull, YLVA, Space Bong). All artwork and layouts were done by Adelaide local Steve Lehmann. Pitchfork Justice contains nine cohesive songs that are a unique blend of sludge metal, old-school thrash, and hardcore, with modern and diverse vocals. The production is lively and bombastic, as well as punchy and aggressive, and the lyrics make a strong statement about the current state of the world, particularly around social media and PC culture.

Shatter Brain are an Adelaide based metal band comprised of members of some of South Australia’s most successful heavy bands. The band launched in January 2018, releasing a four-song demo that was recorded and mixed by guitarist Jack Hartley and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust, Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy). The release was supported by an Australian & New Zealand Tour between Feb and April. This tour culminated with a debut home town show in front of over 650 punters at the annual Heavy SA Festival. The band then commenced the Rip the Stitch Asia Tour in June/July with shows in Taiwan, including a headlining performance at Wake Up Fest in Chiayi, Thailand and Malaysia as main support for Brazilian crossover-thrash legends R.D.P. (Ratos de Porão). Upon returning to Australia, Shatter Brain released a split vinyl EP (aptly titled The Twelve Inch Split) with Melbourne band Blunt Shovel in early August and embarked on another tour with King Parrot and Blunt Shovel. Shatter Brain began 2019 with a tour of Japan and returned to Australia to open for Max and Iggor Cavalera’s (Sepultura) Return to Beneath the Arise tour, during which Tom joined Max on stage to sing a rendition of AC/DCs Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. The band rounded out the year by supporting New Orleans sludge legends Eyehategod (USA) in November. With their debut album on the way, 2020 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Shatter Brain!

Foetal Juice Release New Singe/Video ‘Gluttony’ LP Out June 12th Via Gore House Productions

Four years on from their bulldozing debut album, Masters Of Absurdity, the ravenous dogs of Foetal Juice are back with a new full length record that redefines their own appetite for sickness and savagery. Gluttony is an unflinching exposé of the depths to which the human race has sunk, presented in the language of antagonistic, merciless riffs and raging mayhem. Vomiting on the altars of our icons and tearing apart the false facades of modern society, this is a violent assault on the greed-driven bullshit of modern life.

For fifteen years Foetal Juice have been carving their path through the underground, armed with black humour and sonic intensity, a death metal machine grinding the opposition into the mud, blood and bile. With Gluttony they have refined their song writing prowess while simultaneously ramping up the power to dangerous levels. The result – an album of death metal from the very top tier, more than capable of taking on the biggest names in the genre – and winning. Foetal Juice have never been heavier, faster, more aggressive or as staggeringly good as they are on Gluttony.

With the backing of that bastion of underground extremity, Gore House Productions, Foetal Juice will unleash Gluttony on an unsuspecting world on June 12th and no matter how prepared you might think you are, this album will knock you off your feet. Dig into the trenches and brace yourself for impact.

Introducing: Witchkicker

Introducing: Witchkicker

Witchkicker are a relatively new Irish band that were starting to build their name on the live circuit before our current situation halted that like it has for every band.

Witchkicker were formed in October 2019 by guitarist Mo Sheerin and drummer Cee Jenna.

Both musicians brought different inspirations and playing styles to the table. The blend of Mo’s intricate heavy metal riffs with Cee’s unique groove punk beats were the foundation that attracted bass player Deborah O’Brien. With experience in metal band Dark Lanes, her prog influenced bass lines brought a new layer to the band.

In November 2019 they were joined by Hutchy, who herself had been playing in punk and metal bands as a vocalist and guitarist over the years. Her experience as a front woman completed the line-up and Witchkicker was officially born.

Despite their short time together, they have released three singles to date with no doubt more on the way.
It’s clear this band have many influences in play and it’s refreshing as it’s something different.
They remind me of all female bands from the 90’s. Their music has an attitude to it that was prevalent in those days so it’s nice to see it returning again. It never went away of course but not as common…

On the strength of their first three releases this band are clearly onto a good thing and I heard a great report from someone that saw them live in Belfast earlier this year.

One to watch!
