ASOG_Stormborn

Earlier this year, A Sense of Gravity released what will undoubtedly turn out to be one of the best albums of 2014 and certainly one of the best debut albums of recent memory. Blending insanely technical prog/death with groovy sections that incorporate metal influences from across the board, Travail is simply a complete album that borders on sheer perfection. The guitars on the album are without a doubt one of the main driving forces and so it’s truly a treat for us to present you with a guitar playthrough of what I consider to be the best track off the album, ‘Stormborn’. Check it out after the jump!

Meshuggah fans were offered their first glimpse into the band’s upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release, The Ophidian Trek, yesterday, when Drummer Magazine premiered the live performance video for ‘Do Not Look Down’.

When German progressive death metal act Obscura parted ways with Hannes Grossmann, it was a massive bummer. Grossmann is widely considered to be one of the best drummers in metal, and his songwriting and technical presence in Obscura will be greatly missed. The core of Obscura has always been frontman and guitarist Steffen Kummerer though, and the band’s continued legacy is ultimately up to finding a musician who can not only adeptly perform Grossmann’s material, but one that can write at that caliber as well. Fortunately, Obscura seems to have found their new skinsman in Panzerballett‘s Sebastian Lanser.

revocation deathless

Save for one or two ardent detractors, Revocation are universally enjoyed by Heavy Blog staff. In case you missed it, they have a new record coming out on October 14th, entitled Deathless. I’ve been privileged enough to hear it, and I must say, it’s their best work yet. Just you wait.

Meantime, the band have released behind the scenes footage of the making of the new album, which you can see after the jump. It’s full of new snippets of music as well as band interviews. With more episodes to come, surely there will be separate videos for drums, guitars, and bass, and perhaps vocals as well. Check it out after the jump!

pyrrhon video

The insurgence of what we at Heavy Blog like to call post-death metal has made 2014 my personal highlight of the last few years of heavy music. Alongside Artificial Brain, Pyrrhon have championed this movement and now, with their debut music video, have put a face to a name for this exotic brand of extreme music. The recently released video for ‘Sleeper Agent’ is much like their debut album, Mother Of Virtues, in that it takes various elements of countless genres and blends them seamlessly into an all together visceral experience. Watch the video after the jump and fight me if you don’t agree.

at war with reality

It’s nearly unbelievable. We’re a week into September 2014 and we are actively anticipating a new album from the godfathers of melodic death metal as we know it, At The Gates. The long-awaited return At War With Reality — their first new record in 17 years! — now has a release date set for October 27th, but does the group still have it after all these years? It’s too soon to tell, but get a glimpse at some new music via the album’s trailer after the jump.

live at saint vitus

Got some piping-hot live videos to serve up to you fine folks! Brooklyn post-metal experimentalists Tombs may have released their widely-acclaimed sophomore effort Savage Gold back in June, but they decided to celebrate its release in full a month later at Saint Vitus. Supporting them were several other local acts, including a band you may have heard of called Pyrrhon. We’ve got cuts from each after the jump, courtesy of Nicolas Cusworth Media.
