Fans of terrifyingly stacked frontmen and/or crushing hardcore take note; there is a new Harm’s Way video. The Chicago powerhouses are set to release their new album, Rust, through Deathwish on March 10th but before that you have to watch their new video for ‘Amongst The Rust’. It is definitely not what I expected before watching. For starters, frontman Hammers McPligue has a shirt on! Unreal, I know. Get the video after the jump as always people.

This is it ladies and gentlemen; the first piece of music from post-metal band Minsk in six years. We’ve already told you quite a bit about Minsk and if you recall, I said that my hopes were high that they would fix some issues I found with their production. I’m glad to say that, judging from the new track released yesterday, things are looking up. It sounds crisp and tight, with that crowded feeling that their earlier material possess. Head on over the jump for the full release and the track itself!

We hate to say “we told you so” but we bloody well told you so! When electronic post-rock enigmas Nordic Giants signed to Kscope last year, we knew only good could come of it.

Head on over the jump for not only the dates, but also a beautiful teaser trailer and a new track!

Unique Leader is a label that has a lot on their hands nowadays. After seeing the success of Fallujah’s The Flesh Prevails last year, and Ovid’s Withering’s critically-acclaimed Scryers of the Ibis the year before, they’ve got quite a few fantastic bands on their roster releasing albums this year. One of said bands is WRVTH (aka the band formerly known as Wrath of Vesuvius), who will be releasing their third full-length self-titled album this June. Rather than release a full single though, the band has provided a sampler of track excerpts throughout the album. Get a sense of what this thing is going to sound like after the jump. View Full Article »


While they’ve been steady releasing snippets of new material, Entheos has been at work on their debut EP, and will be entitled Primal. The band has also decided on a release date, which will be on March 15th! Looks like we’re only a few weeks away from the closest we’ll get to an Animosity reunion. The group does feature Evan Brewer, Navene Koperweis and Frank Costa, after all. Head on over the jump for more details on upcoming shows!

At long last, German technical and progressive death metallers Obscura will be closing a four year gap since their last album Omnivium later this year.

For the first time in 20 years, Soundgarden dug deep into their old catalog and brought back “Birth Ritual,” the 1992 single from the film Singles. This performance at Australia’s Soundwave Festival is said to be only the second time they’ve performed the song live, having it first appear way back when in 1992, but they have put it into their live sets at further Soundwave appearances.

Here at Heavy Blog Is Heavy, we love discovering new music, and there’s no better feeling than finding a new band to stoked about. One of the more recent discoveries I’ve made is Elder, a phenomenal stoner/doom metal band from Fairhaven, Massachusetts who are cut from the same sonic cloth as bands like Windhand and Pallbearer; monolithically heavy but also stunningly melodic. The band has a new album on the way called Lore, and they’ve premiered an amazing new track aptly titled ‘Legend.’ Give it a spin after the jump!
