CASTLE FREAK – What do you get when you mix Death Metal, Punk, Thrash, Horror Metal and Extreme together? The end Metal result is an underground band known as: CASTLE FREAK. From parts unknown and signed to Tridroid Records, CASTLE FREAK plays some damn good, fast and very heavy stuff at that. Yes, CASTLE FREAK are quite good at this Metal thing they’re into. Even the album, um, cassette artwork is freaking underground!

With vocals that resonate the angst of Punk and pissed-off aura of Extreme Metal, I have found myself very pleased with every listen, indeed. Underground Metal should kick severe ass and this Still Rotting album has kicked my ass. All five songs on Still Rotting are decent beyond hell and serve as a Metal treat for those of us that still believe in the blue-collar Metal alleyways and hidden Metal fields of dreams. Metal be thy name – Stone.

Crank Up and BUY Some CASTLE FREAK, Below! Whoa!

THE CRINN – Return With A New Track, Reveal Artwork For Forthcoming Album ‘Shadowbreather’

Minnesota’s Extreme Metal experimentalists, THE CRINN, have returned with a face melting new track entitled Silent Betrayer!! Little has been heard from the band since the release of their debut full length album, Dreaming Saturn, via Nuclear Blast Records back in 2010. Aside from a few one-off live performances and few and far between social media updates, THE CRINN have been excessively quiet over the last few years.

All that changes with the release of Silent Betrayer, which is taken from their forthcoming album Shadowbreather. Silent Betrayer is now streaming via THE CRINN‘s Bandcamp page, as well as their Official YouTube Channel. The artwork for Shadowbreather has also been revealed and can be seen (below).

Vocalist John Nelson had the following to say about the upcoming release:It has been a long 4 years since we released our first full length record, Dreaming Saturn, and we are beyond pumped to showcase “Silent Betrayer” from our upcoming album entitled SHADOWBREATHER! The first thing people might notice, contrary to our last release, is that the new album was not formed as a concept. The direction we went with was to write individual songs that are somewhat shorter in length, more in line with our Self-Titled EP. Stylistically we have no rules. We write what comes to us. These songs are a true expression of our experimental nature with a bit of a focus on making our sound meaner and heavier. We really hope you enjoy “Silent Betrayer,” and we will be releasing more news on the album soon!!!

THE CRINN – Silent Betrayer:

Shadowbreather was recorded at Signaturetone Recording with producer/engineer Adam Tucker. A release date has not yet been set.

2014 also marks a decade of existence for THE CRINN, having formed during August of 2004 in St. Paul, MN. From its inception, the band decided to use an explorative writing style, without concern for genre exclusivity due to their frustration with the average and mundane, breakdown oriented metal scene. Their mixture of technical riffs, off-time grooves and jarring transitions has led to the band being labeled as mathcore, techmetal, techgrind, jazzmetal and even noodlegrind. Fans of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and PSYOPUS owe it to themselves to give THE CRINN a listen!

Grindscene Records today reveals a swell in their roster, having picked up emerging Extreme Metal one man outfit Foul Body Autopsy.

Label manager Pete Clarke comments: “We are thrilled to welcome Foul Body Autopsy onto our roster. FBA formed in 2010 and has been carving its name into the UK for 4 years now. This one-man army will be releasing a new 2 track EP entitled ‘So Close To Dehumanization’ unto the world on November 4th 2014.”

Armed with an iPod, guitar and a desire to crush skulls, Foul Body Autopsy is a one-man band from Leicester City founded by Metal maverick Tom Reynolds. Over the space of 4 years Tom has released a full-length album and is now working with Equivalence Music Management & Grindscene Records, planning for a full Metal tirade in the UK.

Prior to this Tom has played Bloodstock Open Air and has shared the stage with the likes of Prostitute Disfigurement, Flayed Disciple, Cancerous Womb, General Surgery, Aeon, Cerebral Bore, Panic Cell, Cannabis Corpse, Decapitated, Aborted, Basement Torture Killings, Amputated, Ageless Oblivion, Leng Tch’e, Thy Art Is Murder, Scordatura and Carnal Decay.

With pure shred techniques, blistering speed and no lack of humour within his show this is a unique show that should not be missed.

VILE REGRESSION – Reveal New Record Details

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on May 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Vile Regression - promo band pic - 2014 - #9083

Formed from the ashes of Irish Extreme Metal outfit Vistor Q; Vile Regression hit the scene in 2010 and released their debut record ‘The Pattern Evolves’ in 2011 via Casket Music.

Much to critics praise, Vile Regression went on from the release to share stages with prolific heavyweights such as Dyscarnate, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Unearth.

After building a reputation as a tight and energetic new addition to the Extreme Metal underground, 2013 saw the band head back to the studio to record a new installment… ‘Empires’.

Today the Irish Extreme Metal outfit release details for ‘Empires’ and the track listing which can be seen below.

1) Tides
2) Raze The Complexity
3) Dream Of The Red Chamber
4) Thought Replication
5) The Abstract
6) Down To A Sunless Sea
7) The Empyrean Divide

‘Empires’ will be released independently on July 21st 2014.
Comments the band: “We feel, ‘Empires’ is a very powerful word, invoking strength and confidence. The title came from the overarching theme within the lyrics, that being, positivity and empowerment in one’s life.”

“While ‘The Pattern Evolves’ dealt with very specific themes of corruption and governments, ‘Empires’ is much more positive. Lyrically the songs deal with different aspects of human emotions such as reaching your potential in life and being the master of your own empire. Songs such as ‘Raze The Complexity’ and ‘The Abstract’ are basically about being confident in yourself and purging the toxic and harmful elements around you.”
