Spoiler alert: it’s weird. Trash Talk are a band known for their take-no-prisoner attitude. The hardcore trio are used to unleashing chaos in all of their shows, whether in organized venues or simply retrofitted, industrial spaces. If you’re looking for a taste of what the band can accomplish live, check out this video we grabbed of them a while ago in Omaha. After that, head on over the jump for the insanity that is their new video.
Lost in the shitstorm that followed my most recent interview with Between the Buried and Me’s Paul Waggoner earlier this summer, the band’s co-founder and lead guitarist gave us a preview of what to expect from the band’s upcoming DVD of Parallax II: Future Sequence. “We wanted to do something different where it was more stripped down, just us in a room jamming,” Paul told me back in June. “That was sort of what we were going for. So it was just us playing the new record straight through.” Now in a newly released trailer for the release vocalist and keyboardist Tommy Rogers also focuses on the intimacy of this DVD. Check out more details after the jump!
Four long and empty years have passed since Italian metallers Amia Venera Landscape dropped their epic and expansive debut album The Long Procession. Back then, the band were touted as a blend of post-metal and hardcore, comparable to acts such as The Ocean and Devil Sold His Soul. Simultaneously crushing and soulful, this is a band worth keeping an eye on when they’re not being so incredibly elusive.
Fortunately, the band surprised fans today with an in-studio performance of a brand new track — appropriately titled ‘Weight Bearer’ — from their upcoming new album. The video is fully produced and the song doesn’t sound noticeably “live”, so it’s not too early to say that if this is what the band have been coming up with over the years, it’ll be worth the wait.
So the plot thickens. Last week, we reported on a post from As Blood Runs Black drummer Lech’s Instagram stating that they’re breaking up. A few days ago, the band addressed the rumors on Facebook, saying that they’d be issuing a statement shortly. Well, they just released a new song without any statement — maybe their statement is that they’re not breaking up? Who knows. They didn’t confirm or deny anything. But you can listen to the new song after the jump.
After breaking out just last year with their Relapse debut Sky Burial, Richmond, VA stargazers Inter Arma are already shaking things up with the announcement of an impending EP titled The Cavern, a standalone 40-minute epic spanning a myriad of genres through a vicious psychedelic haze.

I used to be into Unearth‘s first three albums, but their last two albums were pretty disappointing for me. When I saw that there was live footage of a new song from them, I totally wrote it off and was almost not even going to listen to it. Turns out that was a big mistake, because this new song is awesome. This new track titled “The Swarm” is fast, with blast beats, tremolo picking, sweeps, soaring solos and a breakdown that makes one want to smash stuff. Now I’m very excited for their upcoming album. Check it out after the jump.
The Acacia Strain are one of my favorite bands. Ever since I first heard Continent I’ve been hooked. Their last two albums were still good, but nowhere near as crushing as Continent. However, I think the band may be on to something special after hearing their new single for their upcoming record Coma Witch. Peep the video after the jump.
