Stream (And Slam) The New Pathology Album

Just in time for the weekend, we have a full stream of the brand new self titled record from San Diego’s brutal death reps Pathology. With a somewhat familiar lineup back in the midst, Pathology have had their longest break from releasing a full length since inception, but slammin’ riff junkies don’t have to wait any longer. We got the goods. Definitely one of the nastier premieres we’ve had in awhile, over the jump you’ll find the West Coasts most active death outfit, burning through a half hour of typically punishing brutal death material. Put the kids to bed, hide all sharp objects, grab a hammer.

Heavy Blog Primer – Our Most Anticipated Albums of 2017

Though it may seem like we talked ad naseum about how fucking spectacular 2016 was in terms of new music, the fact remains that we saw more fantastic albums drop than we could seemingly keep up with. But just when we thought our palates were satiated, here comes 2017 with an excellent early roster of release announcements, some we’ve expected for a while and others that came out of nowhere. The following is a surely incomplete list of all the albums worth craving as we ring in the new year. Some of these albums have been fully announced with pre-order links and all that jazz, while others are merely probable assumptions based on various updates on social media. Regardless, these are all phenomenal projects worth looking for in the coming year. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we encourage you to comment with some albums you’re anticipating so we can share in your excitement.

Just Give Up On Everything And Listen To Vermin Womb

Stop sharing those try hard Nihilism memes (guilty) and pay attention. The twenty minutes of music available from Vermin Womb is hot to trot and ready to fuck your soul back into the ether. Grinding and bellowing out of Denver (the US capital of grind?), Primitive Man’s Ethan McCarthy spearheads another trio of life plunderers. Unlike the Man, Vermin Womb don’t do slow. Nah. They do full tilt, blasting death and grind. The sort of music that even your closest metal friends will still refer to as “just noise”. Fuck those friends. They don’t know a thing.

Monte Pittman’s New Album, Inverted Grasp Of Balance, Due Out September 23rd—Jam “Pride Comes Before The Fall” Now

Very PR post right here, but with good reason—Monte Pittman is a pretty sick guy (shouldn’t we get him to a hospital?). You may know him as the guitarist for the mighty Madonna, as well as a stint with legendary thrash outfit Prong. Yes, that Madonna The guitaring, singing, songwriting…

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Stream Sioum’s “Unknown” From Their Upcoming Album, Yet Further (Also, Donate To Their Kickstarter)

If you’re into post-rock at all (and who wouldn’t be? Post-rock is great), Sioum is a band you need to be listening to. I first discovered Sioum (after missing them like three or four times) when they opened for The Proggest August tour [PHOTOS] at the tail end of last…
