Swedish death metal legends and old schoolers THE CROWN are back yet with another upcoming album ‘Cobra Speed Venom‘, due out on March 16th via Metal Blade Records. Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. This is their return to new music after 2015’s ‘Death Is Not Dead‘. Drummer Henrik Axelsson (Implode) joined the band in the beginning of 2015, replacing Janne Saarenpää, and this will be his very first record. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!
Well its Tuesday and every day that starts with the letter ‘T’ is a mandatory thrash metal day. So, jumping on the self created trend we present to you Long Island, NY thrashers EXTINCTION A.D.‘s all new music video, “Secret Worlds“, taken from their upcoming second full length album, ‘Decimation Treaty‘. The video shows the quartet thrashing their guts out in a small studio kind of room belting out pure, unadulterated, nerve wrecking and high speed thrash metal of intense demeanor. This is the first music video we’ve seen off the band’s fast approaching new LP due release this Friday, out via Good Fight Music. Prior to this the band has unveiled two more singles of the very same upcoming album.
Midlands four-piece GO PRIMITIVE have released the brand new video for ‘A Different Person’ the explosive second single taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Choices‘,out February 23rd 2018.
The video sees our bewildered protagonist attending a seemingly standard job interview which descends into a surreal and chaotic adventure, as he is taunted by unwanted fantasies about the other potential candidates’ alter egos.
The track itself is an energised rock stomper layered with thunderous riffs and punchy beats entwined with melodic vocal lines and killer guitar solos. Fuelled with attitude, the band state, “’A Different Person’ is about someone showing their unfavourable true colours, shattering the belief of the kind of person you thought they were”.
I remember when my jaws dropped in disbelief as my eyes stayed fixated on this band when I first came to know about the teenage sensation band, UNLOCKING THE TRUTH. I couldn’t believe the amazing feat and the ability of these mere teens who were already taking the metal and rock community by storm with their crisp and perfectly chiseled song performances. Now, the nu metal teenage trio are ready to break huge on the scene as they prepare to unleash their all new music video, “My Chains“. After years of media excitement, late-night TV appearances, and breakout sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, the band’s debut album ‘Chaos‘ was finally released independently last year. The music video is off the very same album.
French progressive death metal combo Right To The Void have just released the official video “Lines” taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Lūnātĭo’. The long awaited release will be the first of an EP trilogy and marks a new and exciting direction for the band. ‘Lūnātĭo’ is out November 17th via international label Wormholedeath Records and is available to preorder on itunes here.
In 2010 Right To The Void released their first EP ‘It Has To Be Done’ recorded by Rakan Musics, and have since played extensively in France; sharing the stage with grind legends Napalm Death as well as Immolation, As They Burn and E-force and many more. In 2012 they signed with Wormholedeath, on which they released their debut album ‘Kingdom Of Vanity’ in 2013. The album was recorded at MathLab Recording Studios, Italy with the producer Jonathan Mazzeo (The Way Of Purity, Mechanical God Creation) and was mixed/mastered by Christian Donaldson (The Agonist, Beneath The Massacre, Cryptopsy et al) in Canada. The following year saw the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Light Of The Fallen Gods’ which received rave reviews. Both records can be ordered here with both available to stream on Spotify. Since then the band have been touring all over Europe and have been working on material for the upcoming EP which they teased with a 56 second video on July 3rd this year. “Lines” is the first single to be taken from the ‘Lūnātĭo’ EP. The video was directed and produced by Spotcase. Watch the official video below:

The new album marks the next chapter in the world of PM5K and is the follow-up to 2014’s highly successful ‘Builders of the Future’. On the direction of ‘New Wave’, vocalist Spider One says, “We went a bit dirtier on this one. Ripped it up more than the last couple of records. One of the goals was to recreate the noise of the live show. Keep in the chaos.” Continue reading

Technical death core metallers, Rings Of Saturn, released their highly acclaimed fourth full length studio album, “Ultu Ulla,” on July 28th. The alien death core quartet presented an entirely new and esoteric proposition to heavy metal that led to their highest first week sales.

Here’s a real treat to make Tuesday burn! We are no strangers to Canada’s Oni. We have covered their live show (show), their newest offering of Ironshore on Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records (review) and even landed on our Best of 2016 list (list). F*ING LOVE THIS BAND, if it is not obvious! Earlier today, Oni premeired their creepy video for “The Only Cure” featuring guest vocalist and frontman for Lamb of God, Randy Blythe. The song was written by Jake Oni and deals with someone getting their chest cut open (How much more Metal can you get?!?). With a “Hollywood” level of production we are taken for a wild ride as the main character is captured by a serial killer and being subsequently executed in just that manner. Definitely not for the squeamish and probably not something you want to show off to your buddies at work with your boss looking over your shoulder! After directing Oni’s first video for “Eternal Recurrence”, Abraham Roofeh returns to bring this nightmare to vivid life in all its campy and bloody glory! Metal fans and horror movie buffs will freaking love this! Check the video out below. If you are lucky enough to live in the U.K., Oni is also touring with Devil You Know throughout the month of January!
