The Black Dahlia Murder Release First New Track, “Vlad, Son Of The Dragon”

It’s that time. The Black Dahlia Murder have released the first track from Abysmal. Pull your finger out of your ass and pay attention. “Vlad, Son Of The Dragon” is a perfectly fitting cut from the record as it does everything you want a new Black Dahlia song to do. It does however throw in a couple of cheeky surprises too, cheeky enough to merit a couple of words after the jump. Get pumped and ready to party, the boys are back in toon.

Disturbed Are Back After A Four-Year Hiatus


Disturbed are a band that many people dislike. I don’t blame them. From this tasteful parody that’s pretty damn funny to some critics simply stating how awful the band is, people have been talking about them since they erupted onto the scene in the early millennium. Personally, I think Believe and Ten Thousand Fists are great albums, and definitely capture the best music from the band’s career. In 2011, after a successful tour with the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, they announced they would be taking a hiatus to focus on things outside the band. Now, after four years, they’re back, and they have a new song, which you can see below.

Refused Finally Share the Full Taste of Freedom


The journey to Refused‘s comeback album has been turbulent, with three lead singles that have varied greatly in quality. Debut single “Elektra” (spin here) was nothing revolutionary, but it was a vintage Refused banger that had me sufficiently stoked for the new record. Then “Françafrique” dropped (spin here), one of the worst songs that the band has ever released and a serious stroke of doubt regarding the quality of Freedom. The final pre-release single “Dawkins Christ” (spin here), which falls somewhere in between the first two singles in terms of quality. Now, after such a mixed initial launch, Freedom is now available for streaming, which may be done after the jump:

Windhand Reveal Grief’s Infernal Flower

Windhand - Grief's Infernal Flower

Richmond, VA based doom quintet Windhand are a favorite around the Heavy Blog office as well as a personal favorite band of mine; I seriously can’t get enough of them. We previously reported that their highly anticipated follow-up to 2013’s Soma, one of my favorite doom records of all time, would be entitled Grief’s Infernal Flower and was set to be released on September 18, but that was all the information they revealed…until now, that is. The band has released the cover art and a teaser of the new album, effectively putting the already high excitement level for this album all the way to the moon and back. Check out more details after the jump!
