In case you don’t know, Usnea released one of my favorite albums of 2014. It came in a year I had already dubbed The Doom Revival™ and further cemented that idea. The album is relentless, uncompromisingly heavy and well composed. Now, the good folks of Usnea are joining forces with one of my favorite veteran bands, UFOMAMMUT, on their first North American tour. These shows are guaranteed to burn the hairs off your chin so head on below for the full dates!

Leprous are happy to announce that their upcoming album, The Congregation, is complete and is to be released on May 25th, 2015 in Europe and June 2nd, 2015 in North America via InsideOutMusic. In addition, the band will embark on a meaty European tour beginning in September and carrying on until the end of October ending on Halloween in Oslo, Norway.

The band recorded the drums, guitars and bass for their new album in Sweden’s Fascination Street/Ghostward Studios with David Castillo (Katatonia, Opeth) and the vocals together with Heidi Solberg Tveitan and Vegard Tveitan at Mnemosyne Studios in Norway. Just like the preceding albums Bilateral and Coal, The Congregation was mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Symphony X, Kreator).

Metal Alliance Tour

Since 2011, the annual Metal Alliance Tour has consistently produced quality tour poster art and lineups that enlist bands with comparable genres but unique approaches. Not to mention that the 2013 installment of the tour saw Anthrax headline each night with a full performance of Among the Living. This year’s installment  was announced yesterday and has a clear death metal theme, with Florida DM legends Deicide topping off the bill. Head past the jump to see which other three bands will join them (in case you are unable to recongize/read band logos):

Back in 2013, Fit For An Autopsy released Hellbound, an enigmatic deathcore album that made it onto a few of our year end lists here at Heavy Blog. The album was dark, aggressive and is still my favourite deathcore album of this decade thus far. With that in mind, I am more than excited to share with you the news that the New Jersey natives will be releasing a brand new full length this summer. The as yet untitled album will be handled by the bands resident engineering and production maestro Will Putney (Northlane, The Acacia Strain, Body Count) who did a phenomenal job on Hellbound. More info after the jump people. View Full Article »


The fact that this is deemed national news worthy is a bit of a joke in itself (slow news day over here in the UK apparently) but Alex Teyen, vocalist of “doom core” band Black Tongue, has sustained injuries after falling out of their tour vehicle while it was in motion. The band has subsequently dropped off the Chelsea Grin/Veil of Maya tour of Europe. More hijinks after the jump. View Full Article »

Metalcore titans Every Time I Die have parted ways with drummer Ryan “Legs” Leger (above, center), in a mutual split to allow him more time with his family and children, and announced that the eclectic Daniel Davison, who’s played in Norma Jean and Underoath, will join the band to play drums in Ryan’s stead.

Psycroptic Cold

Psycroptic keep dropping tracks from their new self-titled album to make us jealous that we don’t have the full thing yet, so it’s only natural that they would continue along this path until we just can’t take it any longer. The latest golden nugget is a live music video for the track ‘Cold’. Not only is it a live video, but it is also bookended with breathtaking nature shots. Make sure to check it out after the jump, as well as a few tour dates for anyone residing in the land down under.
