Last week, Indiana-based prog metallers The Contortionist came through Warsaw on their fall jaunt across Europe. On the eve of the release of their new EP ‘Our Bones,’ the Hydrozagadka was packed out for a truly memorable show. The air in the venue was electric before the set even began, and as the lights filtered in (to a recording of “I Will Always Love You”, no less) the crowd gave a rousing rendition of their own. The recording faded, and the tension in the air shattered as the show began. Continue reading →
Enterprise Earth was founded in 2014 by ex-Infant Annihilator vocalist Dan Watson and ex-Takeover guitarist BJ Sampson. Taking their name from a confluence of Illuminati and other conspiracy theories, the band released their a debut EP titled ‘XXIII’ and a full length, ‘Patient Ø,’ in 2015. ‘Patient Ø’ featured Oceano vocalist Adam Warren and debuted at number five on Billboard’s Heatseekers/Top New Artist Chart. Last year the band released ‘Embodiment,’ their second LP and have since shared the stage with Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, and Winds of Plague with a highlighted appearance on the 2016 Summer Slaughter Tour. Enterprise Earth have now released their third LP titled ‘Luciferous’ Friday and to celebrate, they’re unleashing the music video for “The Failsafe Fallacy.” Once again directed by The Beast, this is the third music video from the band off their new album.

Ever wonder what the soundtrack of mutilation might sound like? Pretty sure it’s Gorgos. Hailing from a beautiful place like Honolulu, Hawaii, yet they have no shortage of brutality. It’s death metal, it’s slam, a little bit of grind thrown in the mixer. What churns out is blood soaked and meaty riffs. This is carnivorous music. Continue reading →
“UK fiends! We have some exciting news! The tour gods smileth thine way and will let us annihilate you lovely c**ts with our good friends of Cryptopsy, Ingested and Unfathomable Ruination !! Come on out and party with us like it’s 1999 or something.”
With Aborted’s “Hell Over Europe” tour almost a complete sell-out, they now turn their attention to decimate the UK and Ireland with arguably the most brutal death metal line-up of the year! The Belgian Death/grinders will be joined by special guests, the extreme metal titans Cryptopsy, with their fresh independent offering ‘The Book of Suffering – Tome II’. Further support comes from the UK’s own slam kings Ingested with their first show back on British soil after their hugely successful North American headline “Evisceratour”, and London’s own brutal outfit Unfathomable Ruination. The tour begins tonight at The Dome in Tufnell Park London with the last few tickets remaining! Let’s show the world what the UK is made of – let the carnage begin! Continue reading →
Well isn’t this a complete game changer? First we get a major vocalist shift and now Cj is back to let us know why he is considered a legendary vocalist in the deathcore scene. So get right in for the latest updates and get ready to embrace a piece of hell!
“It’s been a long f**king time!” shouted front man Alex Erian. In fact, it’s been 11 years since Despised Icon have graced our shores with a headline set – long since 2007’s phenomenal co-headline UK/European tour with Misery Index, Annotations For An Autopsy and Beneath The Massacre. Whilst they have played the UK as recently as 2016, tonight marked a monumental occasion, firmly solidifying the Montreal metallers legacy and dominance over the Deathcore scene. For fans, this headline set may have been a long time coming but ‘The Beast’ is back and fully reawakened!
Following immediately on from their sold-out show in Antwerp, tonight’s performance at The Dome in central London marked the first leg of the UK section of this momentous comeback tour. With only a handful of tickets left on the door of this 500 capacity venue, and subsequent shows at Birmingham and Manchester expected to sell out, it was clear that everyone here was about to witness something very special. With support combining the best tech, hardcore and slam, whoever put this line-up together must be some kind of god-tier genius – for joining alongside Despised Icon were Vulvodynia, Archspire and the UK’s very own Malevolence. Missing this show was not an option!
