Cattle Decapitation - new album

It has been a long time since Cattle Decapitation released the incredible Monolith Of Inhumanity way back in 2012 but this year will finally see new music from the legendary death grinders, released on the always consistent Metal Blade label. The band took to social media yesterday to announce that the highly anticipated follow up has been completed, with mixing and mastering of the record complete. If you are as excited about this news as much as myself, and many others here at Heavy Blog, you should hop over the jump and check their official statement.

Murder Construct

The world’s best grind supergroup is back. I’m talking about Murder Construct, the band consisting of members from some pretty awesome bands, including Cattle Decapitation and Intronaut. The band took the metal world especially by storm with their absolutely fantastic LP Results, which was released to tons of praise across the board. Now a few years later, the band are finally starting to write material for what will eventually become their newest LP. Check this video of the new material below! View Full Article »


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.

We know 2014 is not over yet but you’ll forgive us if we gaze past its dying moments and into the bright flame that is 2015 (wow, that was metal as fuck). A lot of us honestly believe that we are living in a Golden Age of Metal, going by number AND quality of releases in the past 3-4 or years. Keeping that in mind, it seems as if 2015 is gearing up to be just as badass and filled with amazing music as 2014. In order to get you prepped for all the goodness that is about to descend on us, we’ve compiled a list of releases we are currently expecting in 2015.

Just to make something clear: an “expected release” is any release which is confirmed or very highly likely. Your mileage may vary though, so it’s quite possible some of these won’t actually come out in 2015. However, we did all we can to research these and make sure that they are either confirmed or extremely likely due to the band being in the studio, signing to a new label or hinting towards a close release. We haven’t bothered with “mythical” albums that might see release, such as Tool (yeah right) or Necrophagist (please). So, enjoy! Head on over the jump for the full list and let us know in the comments if there’s anything we missed.

Super-groups are a strange beast, walking the thin line between repetition and worship.  However, super-groups can be vital forces, unchained by restriction. Nader Sadek is an even stranger beast: it is spearheaded by Nader Sadek himself, who used to work not on the stage but behind it, managing visual effects for Mayhem. Three years after the project’s first album, Nader Sadek are premiering a new video and a remastered track. You can hear it after the jump!

aborted the necrotic manifesto

So far, this year’s death metal record to beat is shaping up to be Aborted‘s new opus The Necrotic Manifesto. Fellow Heavy Blogger Aaron Lambert gave it our highest marks, claiming it to be “Aborted’s finest album to date.” Quite a big statement to make, and now everyone can hear it for themselves.

cattle decap to serve man vinyl

I’m a fairly recent fan of California deathgrind outfit Cattle Decapitation, having enjoyed The Harvest Floor in passing when it first came out and absolutely loving Monolith of Inhumanity. I already own Monolith of Inhumanity on vinyl, but I’ve long since missed out on the band’s back catalogue of records. Fortunately, Metal Blade’s got my back on this one. They’re undergoing the huge task of pressing every Cattle Decap record to vinyl in 2014.

king parrot dead end

The Shining scared the shit out of me as a child. Jack Torrance wasn’t like the monsters I’d seen in Alien and Nightmare On Elm Street — he was far too human. So, I’m always appreciative of a good Shining reference and ‘Dead End‘, the new video from Aussie mentalists King Parrot, twists the classic tale into a thrashy, humour-ridden, beer-shotgunning party. It’s as great as it sounds:

Summer Slaughter 2013

Mayhem Fest may be the biggest mainstream metal package tour of the year, but Summer Slaughter is where the best bet is in regards to quality extreme and progressive metal. This year’s lineup consisted of headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan with support from Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Cattle Decapitation, and more! Check out the photos from the Philadelphia stop of the tour below courtesy of Maclyn Bean Photography.
