Georgia foursome Mastodon were on The Late Show with David Letterman last night! The band performed their not-so-controversial-song-with-a-controversial-video “The Motherload” with not a live twerk to be seen. However, guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds was certainly prepared in faux 70s getup, complete with radical fake afro and a heavy dose of cowbell.

The performance in full can be found below!

Blotted Science

Obscure as he is, Ron Jarzombek is often revered as a progressive metal legend. His body of work — which includes critically acclaimed acts Watchtower and Spastic Ink — has helped influence the wave of technically-minded musicianship in metal since the 80’s, being cited as a catalyst for bands such as Dream Theater and Death. Jarzombek continues making a case for furthering musical theory and technique with his latest project Blotted Science, which he shares with drummer Hannes Grossmann (ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) and bassist Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse).

The outfit has been on the backburner for some time, last seeing movement during the album cycle for their 2011 effort The Animation of Entomoloy, which saw the band scoring sequences from bug-themed horror movies with their oddly unique style of progressive and instrumental death metal. Now the band have solidified plans to record a follow-up in December, for a 2015 release, closing a much too long four-year gap.

When it was announced that avant-garde composer Scott Walker would be collaborating with drone-doom titans Sunn O))), the general reaction was one of intrigue. Walker had appeared on the track “Alice” from Sunn O)))‘s album Monoliths & Dimensions, so the opportunity to hear this match-up over the course of a full length project tantalized the imaginations of experimentally inclined listeners. The final project, entitled Soused, can now be purchased through 4AD Records here, and in addition, Scott O))) has released a video for the opening track, “Brando,” which can be viewed after the jump.

Iamthemorning are a band that I identified as one to keep your eye on. In my review, I described them as a band that combines classical with prog, and this can be shown in the clip below for their song ‘Os Lunatum’, which has a chamber arrangement, which is more orchestral than the album version. Check it out after the jump!

Bring Me The Horizon teased their new video for ‘Drown’ last week and thankfully, for teenage girls and die hard fans of the band, they didn’t wait long before releasing it. Now, like most of the bands we feature here, there are polarising opinions about this lot around the metaphorical Heavy Blog staff table. The band have come a long way from the Count Your Blessings days and while Sempiternal contained some good tracks, the direction the band have taken is, questionable at best, but that can wait. Check the new video after the jump. View Full Article »


You know what I miss? Deathcore that’s heavy yet technical, without any gimmicks or being stupidly over the top. Well, here we have Hybrid Sheep, who seem to scratch that itch rather well. Hailing from France, the band was formed in 2008 and they’re finally releasing their full length in December. If their first single is any indication, it will definitely contain riffs that will make you inadvertently bob your head. Check out the music video for ‘Liar’s Promises’ (which we are premiering exclusively right now!) after the jump.

Leprous - Live

For those of you not in the know, we recently had the pleasure to sponsor the North American tour of one of the blog’s favorite progressive bands, Leprous. The Norwegians just wrapped it a few weeks ago, and unfortunately yours truly was unable to work his pro-shot video magic when they stopped by NYC (thanks, Webster Hall). However, Heavy Blog photographer and all-around handsome dude Nick Budosh was there for their final show in Springfield, VA, and he brought along his GoPro to capture the entire set in all its glory. Hit the jump to bask in it. View Full Article »
