RIVERS OF NIHIL released The Work last Fall on Metal Blade Records. The band has never fit neatly into a box, but with 2018’s Where Owls Know My Name, they transcended all labels applied to them. Returning in 2021 with The Work, they’ve forged further into new territory, delivering an album that’s as cerebral as it is visceral, and that covers a staggering sonic range, definitively placing them in a category of their own. Inarguably a dense, heavy collection, The Work is far too dynamic to be considered a solely metal record and there is a genuine warmth that shows through, particularly tracks like “Wait” and the gorgeous “Maybe One Day.”

Additionally, the band has incorporated far more clean vocals alongside the screaming that tears through many of the record’s heavier tracks. Courtesy of their friend Zach Strouse, saxophone once again adds extra layers of atmosphere to the collection, utilizing baritone, soprano, and alto saxes to great effect.

INTENT – Release New Single “Victims of Conquest”

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on June 19, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

High octane thrash outfit INTENT have unleashed “Victims of Conquest”, the first single from their upcoming album Exile. Delivering ludicrous speed, fierce energy and dynamic instrumentation, the new track is a feast of ferocious metal.

The band comments: “We are beyond stoked to present you with this first single from Exile: “Victims of Conquest”. We made sure to crank up the speed, intensity, and political outcry. You know, the way thrash was intended!”

Forming in Arizona in 2015, INTENT underwent line-up changes and spent time developing their sound before heading into the live scene. The outfit soon began opening up for bands like OVERKILL, DRI, and HAVOK to name a few. 2018 saw the release of their debut album Vox Populi, and now in 2022, Exile displays the thrashers’ hard work to cultivate the next era of their sound. Landing on August 26th, 2022, the new album unleashes commanding rhythms and powerful lyrics.

Thundering through the tracks, INTENT‘s immense impact never falters. The thrashers awaken a dark mood that seeps through the instruments and vocals, with a focus on the rhythmic quality of the music. They also unveil a progressive edge across Exile through non-standard time signatures enhancing the chaotic atmosphere of the band’s compositional style.

Exile is a whirlwind of raging thrash metal. INTENT have thrown their all into this thrilling album, it’s a brutal journey that needs to be experienced to be believed.

MUNICIPAL WASTE – To Release New Album “Electrified Brain” On July 1st, 2022

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

From: municipalwaste.com

MUNICIPAL WASTE will release the massively-anticipated 7th studio album, Electrified Brain, on July 1st via Nuclear Blast. The shocking cover artwork by James Bousema.

“It’s in the vein of songs like ‘Headbanger Face Rip’ and ‘Wave of Death’,” Tony Foresta notes. “It’s an inspirational song for our fans to cause bodily harm to themselves, but in a loud and healthy way, of course.”

“We’re not writing any love ballads to sell records,” affirms Tony. “We’re just doing what we’ve always done since the band started and that’s try to write loud, fast, and ripping hardcorepunkmetal. We hope you walk away with some bloody ears, blown speakers, pissed off parents, black eyes, and a healthy distrust of authority.”

Recorded in Philadelphia with producer Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Code Orange), “Electrified Brain” is a high-voltage non-stop masterclass of neck-snapping thrash that’d be the ideal soundtrack for high-speed car chases and backyard steel cage matches as witnessed on the new track “Grave Dive.”

“Electrified Brain” Tracklisting:

  1. Electrified Brain
  2. Demoralizer
  3. Last Crawl
  4. Grave Dive
  5. The Bite
  6. High Speed Steel
  7. Thermonuclear Protection
  8. Blood Vessel – Boat Jail
  9. Crank The Heat
  10. Restless and Wicked
  11. Ten Cent Beer Night
  12. Barreled Rage
  13. Putting On Errors
  14. Paranormal Janitor

LONG LIVE MUNICIPAL WASTE.

CREEPING DEATH – Announces North American Headlining Tour With 200 Stab Wounds, Tribal Gaze, And More – Tickets On Sale This Friday!

Following their recent run supporting Carcass and Immolation, CREEPING DEATH will return to the stage this August on a North American headlining tour. The trek begins August 16th in El Paso, Texas, runs through September 18th in Austin, Texas, and includes performances at this year’s edition of Psycho Las Vegas and Full Terror Assault. Support will be provided by 200 Stab Wounds and Tribal Gaze as well as Ingrown, Spirit World, Vomit Forth, Age Of Apocalypse, and labelmates Plague Years on select dates.

Comments the band, “We’re extremely excited to embark on our first headlining tour later this Summer. We can’t wait to hit the road with such an eclectic group of bands. We’ll see you all very soon!”

Tickets go on sale Friday, June 10th! See all confirmed dates below.

CREEPING DEATH continues to tour in support of their most recent release The Edge Of Existence EP, unleashed last year via MNRK Heavy. With a nod to crossover masters Iron Age, a bit of the tech-death of Cryptopsy, a foundation of forebearers Death, CREEPING DEATH summons a vibrant sound somehow both familiar and fresh. The Edge Of Existence EP further demonstrates the power, fury, and outright revelry at the heart of the band’s identity.

Captured at Homewrecker Recording Studio in Tucson, Arizona and produced and mixed by Ryan Bram (Gatecreeper, Bitter Rivals, Sex Prisoner), the six-song EP introduces three new certified hellraisers — “Relics From The Past,” “Humanity Transcends,” and the title track — alongside remade and revitalized versions of the three songs from the band’s 2016 debut EP — “Sacrament Of Death,” “Doused In Flames,” and “Skinned Alive.”

The Edge Of Existence EP is available on CD, cassette, digitally and vinyl at THIS LOCATION.

View the band’s previously released video for the EP’s title track HERE and a visualizer for “Humanity Transcends” HERE.

LONG LIVE CREEPING DEATH.
