EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Watch Stargazer Jam In These New Live Sessions!

I’ve been telling you about Stargazer since 2014; last year, it was my pleasure to review their debut and shed some light on its intricacies and non-standard approach to its genre. In retrospect, now that I’ve had even more time with Tui La, what makes it work so well is the cohesion and organic momentum that the band have. They just seem to really enjoy playing with each other and that makes them gel in a way that’s rare for a relatively young act. The two videos we’re premiering today from them really solidify this fact; both “Animus” and “Skinwalker” are some of my favorite tracks from the album but, more importantly, the videos really showcase how well the band works together. Head on over the jump to see for yourself and we’ll talk more!

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Australia Gets Brutal With Depravity’s “Vile Defloration”

There’s something in the water in Australia. Outside of crocodiles, naturally. The country produces quality extreme metal on the regular, and particularly in the realm of death metal has no shortage of premium artists, with recent releases from Portal and Grave Upheaval once again cementing the scene’s weird, overwhelming dominance.…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: The Machines Are Rebelling with Master Boot Record’s “DMA 6 SCSI HOST ADAPTER”

The synthwave self-aware machine known as Master Boot Record has a new album out on April 20th. Direct Memory Access is the, um, computer’s fifth album in 3 years, and we’re pleased to premiere it’s seventh track, “DMA 6 SCSI HOST ADAPTER”. This sentient computer is a prolific songwriter, having…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Persefone Keep The Proggy Goodness Coming With Brand New Single “In Lak’Ech”

Andorran prog lords Persefone’s latest album, Aathma, was one of my favourite albums of 2017. With that record, the band struck a perfect balance between the complex compositions of Dream Theater and the more ethereal odysseys of later day Cynic, to deliver what I honestly believe to be one of the greatest examples of contemporary progressive metal. While I’m sure the album will continue to reward for years to come, it was a long wait between their breakthrough record Spiritual Migration (2013) and this magnum opus. Thankfully, the band’s fans needn’t wait to hear more from the band this time around, as we are proud to present the lyric video for their brand new single “In Lak’Ech”—a noticeably darker track, featuring Tim Charles from Ne Obliviscaris.

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: It’s Time To Make A Laugh Deposit At Steaksauce Mustache’s “Space Bank”

Ever since Red Fang released their by now legendary series of music videos and, if we’re being honest, well before that, metal and humor went hand in hand. Something about the irreverence of humor, especially the over the top, nonsensical one just blends extremely well with metal’s desire to resist and non-conform. This is where Steaksauce Mustache, an Oregon based band peddling a chaotic and fuzzy version of mathcore insanity and featuring former members of Arsonists Get All The Girls, are coming from on the new single which we’re proud to premiere today. Aliens, excessive drinking (albeit of chocolate milk), bodily discharges and more all blend into an immature and deeply satisfying mix. And the music is damn good as well; head on down below to check it out!
