Preview and purchase Violence Unimagined at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse.

CANNIBAL CORPSE continues to tour in support of their critically cherished Violence Unimagined full-length, released last year via Metal Blade Records. Comprising eleven tracks, Violence Unimagined is state of the art death metal played with passion and breathless precision, making for another flawless addition to what is inarguably one of the premier catalogues of the genre.

While they continue to do what they do with aplomb, the one substantial change to CANNIBAL CORPSE is the addition of guitarist Erik Rutan to their ranks, joining bassist Alex Webster, founding drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz, guitarist Rob Barrett, and vocalist GeorgeCorpsegrinderFisher. Known for his roles in Morbid Angel, Ripping Corpse, and most notably fronting the mighty Hate Eternal, Rutan has long established himself as one of the most dynamic forces in contemporary death metal. Simultaneously, he has built up a reputation as one of the most in demand producers in metal, having previously produced four CANNIBAL CORPSE albums (in addition to Violence Unimagined), alongside the likes of Goatwhore, Soilent Green, and Belphegor. Filling in live on guitar since 2019, in 2020 he became a full member, contributing to the writing process.

CASTRATOR – Release Video For “Inquisition Sins” – New Studio Album “Defiled In Oblivion” Releases On July 22nd

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Cover art for Defiled in Oblivion by Jon Zig.

New York-based old-school, all-female death squad CASTRATOR have launched the video for “Inquisition Sins,” the newest track off their forthcoming album Defiled in Oblivion. The song features a guest guitar solo from OBITUARY guitarist Kenny Andrews.

Drummer Carolina Perez, who edited and produced the video, comments on the song, “The lyrics talk about the Catholic Church dark era of the Inquisition terror when “witches were burnt alive” (regular people) for being wise or just being themselves.”

The video comes via an exclusive premiere hosted by Brooklyn Vegan. Watch “Inquisition Sins” now at this location.

With their third release to date, the New York four-piece have perfected their blend of fierce old-school USDM to a fault. More uncompromising and ruthless than ever before, CASTRATOR’s zero-fucks-given approach rips and shreds across 9 hypnotically violent new tracks (alongside a cover of Venom’s Countess Bathory) and makes Defiled in Oblivion a release to be reckoned with. Boys club beware!

Dark Descent Records will release Defiled in Oblivion on July 22. Pre-order the album at darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com

Revolver Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, Decibel Magazine, and Gimme Metal Radio are all offering limited edition vinyl variants of Defiled in Oblivion. Each edition is limited to 100 copies.

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.

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.

My Recent Cassette Purchases: CORPSEGRINDER, BURNING WITCHES And KILLER BE KILLED – Reviewed

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, music reviews, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

The self-titled CORPSEGRINDER release is a monstrous and impressive leap for this Death Metal legend. CORPSEGRINDER is jam packed with infectious riffs, entertaining lyrics and more badass grooves than I can count. This is way more like Obituary than Cannibal Corpse; yet CORPSEGRINDER stands alone on its musicianship and overall nod to straight-up Metal.

Killer Be Killed exemplify’s how Metal has evolved up to this point in time; a modern Metal sound that benefits from the brilliance of this supergroup. Max Cavalara shows off clean vocals with his growls, while each song on Reluctant Hero I find to be outstanding. Greg Puciato is a tremendous force on this album. An amazing Metal album which I already consider as a classic.

Burning Witches carry the torch for Traditional Heavy Metal while adding their own recipe of sound. These ladies bring a hefty dose of speed and melody to their songs, along with some growls and European Metal vibes. The Witch Of The North settles into this band’s growing and impressive discography perfectly. If you love DORO, you’ll love Burning Witches.

The band currently consists of Krieg Penny – Vocals, Mike DeBord – Guitars, Jason Frankhouser – Guitars, Stephen Fernandez – Bass, Rene Martinez – Drums. The group is known for their razor grinding guitars mixed with blackened thrash elements and often abstract time signatures, characterized by blast beats, complex riffing, and pit style hook riffs.

Additionally, their reality-based lyrics characterized by war themes and mental trauma that are notable in death metal. Various line-up changes throughout the years have left Mike DeBord as the sole remaining original member, as well as the band’s driving force. To date, MARTYRED has released 3 EPs and a full length album to be released this fall 2022.

DEMIRICOUS – Release “Smoke Chaser”

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Indiana death/thrash band DEMIRICOUS have unleashed their song “Smoke Chaser”. The track is taken from their highly anticipated album III: Chaotic Lethal, which is out on May 13, 2022. The song is now available on all streaming platforms.

The band comments: 

“From a writing standpoint, we took a bit of a different approach on this one. With the chorus, we wanted to open it up with a huge melodic riff, and a catchy, anthemic hook. And to counteract the catchiness of the chorus and melody, we wanted to cap it with one of the ugliest moments on the entire record. “Smoke Chaser” lyrically is about how humanity has a false sense of relevance, as a result of technology. We are all addicted, and constantly chasing something we will never actually obtain.”

Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o66E4nFSHVM

Pre-order vinyl: https://www.postrecordings.com/products/demiricous-chaotic-lethal-lp

Pre-order cassette: https://demiricousofficial.bandcamp.com/album/chaotic-lethal

Rising from the depths of the abyss, DEMIRICOUS are preparing to unleash their most monstrous record yet III: Chaotic Lethal. The death/thrash quartet from Indianapolis, Indiana, initially formed in 2005 and released two successful full lengths gaining international regard. Following an extended hiatus, the outfit are making an impactful return.

“It’s been 15 years since we’ve released a record. We are so unbelievably proud of this one, and this is the DEMIRICOUS record we’ve always wanted to make. Prepare yourselves. It’s a fucking monster.”

DEMIRICOUS delve into heavier instrumentation and sinister moods, releasing a plethora of hard-hitting sounds across the tracks. Immersing eerily into a desolate landscape, “Unconditional Hate” smothers the senses. As guitars begin to screech and grapple through the murkiness, it’s not long before the sheer speed and power of DEMIRICOUS breaks through.

Demonic low tones dominate the instrumentation and aggressive vocals. From the high fuelled groove rhythms of and blast beats of “Smoke Chaser”, to the unearthly doom and gloom of “Chaotic Lethal”, DEMIRICOUS venture across realms of dynamic metal influences creating a thrilling and hauntingly theatrical experience. The album operates in a cyclical nature seeing the final track, “Faith Crime” withdraw to the void from which III: Chaotic Lethal emerged.

III: Chaotic Lethal marks a monumental milestone. It is an epic collection of tracks exploring a dark narrative of the barbaric and grotesque. DEMIRICOUS’s sound is revived and restored, as the band have evolved into their next chapter.

Finnish Melodic Black/Death Metal Band A LIE NATION Is Set To Release Their Debut Album “Sociopathology” – “Scum” Single Out Now!

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , on April 26, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Finnish melodic black/death metal band A Lie Nation is set to release their debut album Sociopathology on July 1st 2022 via Inverse Records. The first single Scum is released today.

Watch Scum visualizer video: https://youtu.be/YxzJ6-ceTZc or below:

Guitarist Jussi Tuomisto comments:
“Scum represents a more straightforward in-your-face department of the “Sociopathology” album. The song is a hybrid in styles, it clearly has elements of melodic death metal with a sense of black metal. I think it represents well the energy that we are known for. Nothing extra, no painting of pretty pictures or dreamy atmospheres. Scum is a brutally honest, stripped to the core extreme metal song.”

Vocalist Miikka Pyykkönen continues:
“Lyrically Scum takes a stand on how politicians of today are more concerned about their public image rather than how their policies impact the very society they are supposed to represent.”

EMPTY THRONE – Announce New Line-up Featuring Members of CANNIBAL CORPSE and SUFFOCATION

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Melodic/blackened death metal band EMPTY THRONE is once again on the move with plans of sending even larger ripples through the metal world by turning an already impressive lineup into a full-fledged supergroup. With writing underway for their upcoming full-length, EMPTY THRONE has added Jack Owen (Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Six Feet Under) and Mike Smith (Suffocation) to the fold.

One of the most renowned guitarists in metal today, Jack will be providing his legendary riffage that helped define the last three decades of death metal. Mike will take the helm behind the kit delivering his unmistakably brutal drumming style. The two veterans will join returning EMPTY THRONE members C.R. Petit (Angerot), Jason Ellsworth (Angerot), and Michael J Pardi (Possessed, Draconis, Ritual) for what promises to be an absolute powerhouse of an album. Stay tuned for the next hellish chapter of EMPTY THRONE!

EMPTY THRONE formed in 2020 with C.R. Petit and Jason Ellsworth of Angerot joining forces with Mike Pardi (Possessed, Draconis, Ritual) and Gabe Seeber (Kennedy Veil, Decrepit Birth, Black Crown Initiate, Abbath) with a goal of creating a unique blend of Death, Black and Thrash Metal. The styling of EMPTY THRONE has been referred to as “Hellish Blackened Deathrash”. It draws upon the violent propulsion of 80’s thrash. The agile savagery of mid-90s Gothenburg-style death metal. Rabid vocals blended with dark atmospherics of late-stage black metal. The result was a ferocious onslaught of speed, power, and outright aggression backed with deadly hooks and grooves. The members of EMPTY THRONE are all veteran hell-bringers and have deep lineage in the extreme metal genre.

EMPTY THRONE partnered with the upcoming label Wise Blood Records to release their three-track 23-minute debut EP, Glossolalia, in 2021 to rave reviews. The EP quickly sold out and proved the band a force to be heard.

CREEPING DEATH will be touring 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 ExistenceEP 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 now 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.

Originally hailing from Denton, Texas and now situated in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, guitarist Trey Pemberton, vocalist Reese Alavi, bassist Eric “Rico” Mejia, drummer Lincoln Mullins, and guitarist A.J. Ross III comprises the group Revolver called the, “Power Trip-endorsed band leading the next wave of Texas metal.” They refused to let the 2020 pandemic destroy their momentum, even after COVID sidelined two of them for several weeks.

The group emerged from lockdown with a punishing array of their most crushing material yet. Ross (also of Kombat and Torture Tomb, with Cole Crutchfield of Knocked Loose) made his recorded debut with CREEPING DEATH, adding another heavy dimension to their massive bellow on The Edge Of Existence.
