PREMIERE: Listen To New Teaser For Pseudo/Sentai’s Upcoming Record

PromoImage

Many of us are fans of the really weird, out-there-style of prog music. There’s something about being a bit odd that really attracts us, and I think some writers here gravitate towards that more than anything else. Lucky for me, I got hit up to premiere the teaser for this killer band Pseudo/Sentai, and then heard the record. It’s definitely out there, but in the best way possible. The premiere today is the instrumental opening track from the band’s record ‘ Quantum Cardboard’. Check out the video below!

NYN Releases Melodeath EP Equivalence

a1792774034_16

NYN is not only one of our veteran editors, the dude also knows how to write and play some good metal. His solo project has produced some of the most fun tech metal I’ve heard (check out his amazing full-length from last year if you don’t believe us), and I’m still a little bit jealous that I can’t play as well as he does. That’s besides the point. Recently, Noyan had been discussing the possibility of releasing a melodic death metal EP, which is something he has always had mulling around in his mind. Well everyone, he did it, and you can check it out below!

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Stream Archaea’s Catalyst In Full

archaea

Many of our staff members are fans of melodic death metal. There have been some very timeless bands that have done absolutely great things with it, both since its inception in the early 1990s and even up until the present. However, much of the genre can come across as stale, especially considering the impeccable output of bands such as Bloodshot Dawn and Soilwork in the  last few years. Today, though, we are bringing you some really fresh, revitalized old school melodic death metal in the form of Sweden’s very own Archaea, who take a more old school approach. Check out the group’s new record Catalyst after the jump!

TRACK PREMIERE: Opensight – The Chase

opensight

Progressive metal is a genre that has long been a favorite around these parts. Lucky for all of us, this year has treated us to some absolutely stellar music from some great bands, both big and small. However, at times, the genre as a whole can get a bit stale. It really takes something unique to set a prog band apart these days, because listening to any on of them extensively can ultimately be monotonous. Opensight, however, are a different band entirely; having carved their own unique sound, their upcoming EP Ulterior Motives will be one to check out. Today, however, we have something special! It’s an exclusive premiere of “The Chase”, which you can hear after the jump!

Deafheaven Stream New Single, May Actually Be Kvlt

Hipster black metal kids who name drop Darkthrone rejoice, and basement dwelling black metal elitists beware, as Deafheaven has released a new track. The track is titled “Brought To The Water” and will be the opening track on their newest album, New Bermuda, due out October 2nd. Surprisingly, the track shows the band drawing a bit more on their black metal influence, carrying a significantly darker energy than what was present on much of Sunbather, at least until about the 3 minute mark where they settle back into their groove of shoegaze shimmers amidst the black metal attacks. By 4 minutes in, the track has safely tread back into familiar Deafheaven territory, giving break to a massive, major key, post rock-black metal burst that carries the track through until its end. Also noticeable is that vocalist George Clarke is not mixed incredibly low into the background this time around, and helps to serve as the forefront of the song for most of its run time. Head on over the jump for the stream!

Frontierer Burn Everything Down On “Bunsen”

Frontierer - Bunsen

All hail the Internet, for without it we would not have white hot tracks like this to share with you all. A Transatlantic project stretching from sunny Scotland (it’s yo’ boy Matt MacLennan, of course there’s a Scottish element involved) all the way to the plains of Missouri (dunno if Missouri has plains or not, sounds good though), Frontierer play a type of archaic math metal that will split as many heads as it turns. After already releasing an album a few short years ago, this project is gearing up to dish out another brutal full length and you can check out the opening track right now.
