Deafheaven Announce Upcoming 3rd LP Set To Be Released In October

Deafheaven

Following the release of the 2013 sophomore album Sunbather, California black metal/shoegaze/”blackaze” outfit Deafheaven have locked themselves away in the studio since the end of 2014 (with the exception of playing a few shows and festivals here and there), but yesterday, July 27th, the band uploaded a minute long teaser of the new album, which is (supposedly) titled New Bermuda and will be released in October through Anti- Records. Now, the reason the word “supposedly” is in parentheses when the name of the album was mentioned is because we are not sure if that is the name of the new album, but in the trailer you do see the words “New Bermuda” flash rapidly for a second at the end of the trailer. Whether that is the name of the album or a single they will be releasing is currently unknown, but let’s just wait and see. Head on over the jump for the trailer itself!

Check Your “Receipt” For A New Black Dahlia Murder Track

dahliamurderabysmalcd

This post would have gone up yesterday had I not been writhing in fits of toe curling ecstasy, eyes rolling back in my head as I reached sweet, melodic death metal completion. Kleenex’d and straight faced, I can now present to you, my lovely Heavy darlings, the latest track released from the seventh record from The Black Dahlia Murder. “Receipt” is streaming at Revolver but if you pop over the jump, you’ll find what this Dahlia die-hard has to contribute to the discussion.

Hey! Listen To A Trust Unclean

A-Trust-Unclean-Reality-Relinquished-album-art

It’s your boy Matty here with some fresh as fuck, grooving new deathcore that doesn’t suck. Stop. Don’t breeze over this because of the dreaded “core” suffix, I can 100% vouch for A Trust Unclean and their sweeping, grooving jams; the type that Whitechapel used to dish out and should probably get back to soon. It’s no secret that a lot of deathcore style bands have been slowing things down to a snails pace (Black Tongue), either that or they are heading down a more symphonic route (Nexilva). While I have no beef with either of these trends, I have been itching for a deathcore band that deal primarily in technical passages and unruly grooves. Well, consider my itch scratched.

Exclusive Premiere: Stream Kronos’ Epic and Crushing New Album Arisen New Era in its Entirety

kronos

Editor’s Note: This post was originally published yesterday but had to be removed due to copyright issues with the stream on Soundcloud.

Criminally underrated French brutal death metal quartet Kronos has been churning out high-quality, flesh-searing jams since 1994, yet for whatever reason, they aren’t a very well known name in the death metal underground. The gods themselves are displeased at this, because these guys are the real deal when it comes to brutal death metal. Displaying a technical prowess and penchant for immaculately crafted riffs that rival some of the biggest players in the scene, Kronos stand out a bit more thanks to a rich obsession with Greek mythology, a theme which permeates every part of their music, from the battle-rallying lyrics to the blood-spilling riffs. They’ve armed themselves appropriately over their 20 year career as a band, with three full-length albums already in their scabbard, and Heavy Blog is beyond delighted to premiere Kronos’ first album in eight years, Arisen New Era, in its entirety.
