CRITICAL PRAISE FOR GOATWHORE:

“…a blasphemous blast…” – Decibel Magazine

GOATWHORE channels every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash into Constricting Rage of the Merciless…” – Austin Chronicle

“…one of extreme metal’s most unheralded, blue-collar bands…” – Sputnik Music

GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering is no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence.” – Exclaim

“…a masterful work of extreme metal…” – Dead Rhetoric

Indiana Stoner/Sludge Rockers YELLOWTOOTH Entering Studio To Record Sophomore Album

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Yellowtooth - promo band pic - 2014 - #3387

Michigan City, Indiana’s own Sludge/Stoner band YELLOWTOOTH is preparing to hit the studio in September to record Crushed By The Wheels of Progress, the follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut album Disgust.

The album will be released through Orchestrated Misery Recordings. The band has eight songs ready to be sent into the audio stratosphere. Song titles include “Before I Return to Dust,” “The Spiral Stairs,” “Meet Mr. Mossberg,” “Climbing the Mountain,” “Manifesto,” and “Season’s End.”

Guitarist/vocalist Henry McGinnis commented on the new material:

“We haven’t really changed our writing style since the debut came out, but refined it a bit to suit our needs. Having been together since 2008 it’s just a natural progression of who we are.  The songs are still very heavy, and some parts still have the southern flair we have grown to enjoy since the beginning.”

YELLOWTOOTH is also gearing up for several shows this fall in the Chicagoland area with label-mates PSYCHOMANCER.

“‘Southern-fried stoner-sludge-doom?’ Fuck it. It’s heavy. It’s bad-ass. And it’s perfect when you’re chasin’ Beam with Busch Light.” – Heavy Planet

_______________________________

Melodic Death Metal band LAIKA are proud to announce they will be holding their local CD release party for ‘Somnia’ (out Sept 30th via Filth Regime Records) in Winnipeg, MB on October 11th at The Windsor Hotel (187 Garry Street) with local support from Tyrants Demise, Mortalis, Withdrawal, and Occvlt Hand. Admission is $10 with the first 25 people in the door receive a free copy of ‘Somnia’.

“This is a momentous occasion for us all because not only are we celebrating the release of Somnia we are also celebrating 5 years as a band, we will be playing Somnia in full and a cover or two. We are absolutely thrilled to have such a stellar lineup for the evening. Hope to see you all out for the grand celebration!” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

Laika - Somnia - Release Party - September 2014 - flyer

The band has unleashed two tracks for fans from the upcoming release ‘The Immortal’ and ‘Escalation of Terror’. Both can be heard below.

“The immortal is a track that touches the subject of the capacity of human strength. How far ones willing to go and pushing that thought until it leads to loss of life or some other extreme.  Something we all witness in day-to-day life.  This track is one of our favorites on the album and really shows the dynamic that Laika has as a whole.” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

LAIKA – The Immortal

LAIKA – Escalation of Terror

Album Pre-Order - https://laikawpg.bandcamp.com/

Founded in 2009 as a six-piece and named after the Soviet dog who became one of the first animals to travel to space, the band unleashed a self-released album in 2010, then hit the road, sharing the stage with the likes of All Shall Perish, Kataklysm, Necronomicon and Unleash the Archers, before temporarily backing away from the spotlight.

Driven by a thirst for evolution, LAIKA spent two years constructing and writing its upcoming full-length album, ‘Somnia’, filling it with melodic hooks, ominous keys and lyrics that are bound to get stuck in listeners’ heads to an almost maddening degree. Brace yourself, as this fall; LAIKA will hit the scene hard, just like they did all those years ago.

ANNIHILATION – Reveal Details About New EP

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Annihilation - promo band pic - 2014 - #44940

Portugal’s best known Death Metal band ANNIHILATION are proud to announce that their new EP The Undivided will be released on November 4th 2014. Containing 6 tracks of absolutely punishing Death Metal, The Undivided is a stunning follow-up to the band’s debut album. A single from the EP, entitled “The Great Cycle” was released a few months ago as a digital download.

Listen to “The Great Cycle” here: http://annihilationband.bandcamp.com/track/the-great-cycle

The band’s founder Fabio Da Silva released the following statement about the EP:

“We are proud to announce the release of our new EP The Undivided. Consisting of six songs, the EP is a precursor to our next full-length which will be one song connected by three parts. We have been working  on these songs for the last two years and there is a big evolution between this EP and our first album Against The Storm. The songs are more technical, dissonant and intricate than our debut album. Lyrically I spent a lot of time researching and working on the lyrics. The EP and the album focus on my vision about humanity as energy beings all connected to one source of energy. One conscious entity that connects all beings into one. An entity that has been separated from his source and originated the human species, the voyage of part of that consciousness when the human being faces death and finally connects again with the source.”

4. Feeding the Void
