hype-2015

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.

Nader

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.

 cattle decap your disposal

Monolith Of Inhumanity may have been released over a year ago now, but that hasn’t stopped Cattle Decapitation teaming up once again with director Mitch Massie, this time to bring us a new video for ‘Your Disposal‘. Now it’s no nightmare-fuel like ‘Forced Gender Reassignment‘ was, but it’s got that distinctive dark, creepy, squishy quality that he is so good at invoking and I’m really glad they gave ‘Your Disposal‘ the attention it deserves, as it was by far one of my favourite tracks on the album. Wait till you hear the chorus, it’s just unique, for lack of a better term.

cattle-7inch

Monolith Of Inhumanity made it on to nearly everyone’s best-of list last year, and with good reason. The band’s opus, it transcended the genre and incorporated some new elements the band never had before, making it one of the best records in the genre. Today the band have announced the release of an awesome 7″ of ‘Your Disposal’ which also feature the B-Side Japanese exclusive track ‘An Exposition Of Insides‘. Hell yes.

Thy Art is Murder are one of the fastest growing up-and-coming bands we’ve seen in some time. This Australian deathcore band practically appeared over night, releasing their debut album Hate to a fair bit of acclaim before being signed to Nuclear Blast. Just a year later, the group narrowly beat out internet sensations Rings of Saturn for the opening spot on this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour. This month (June 2013), the group did a string of headlining shows around their homeland, bringing Cattle Decapitation, King Parrot, and Aversions Crown in tow as support. Photographer William France attended the tour’s opening night in Brisbane at The Rev. Photos can be viewed below!
