EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Go Beyond the Reach of the Flame with Hard-Hitting Death Metallers MICAWBER

Just this past Friday our resident overlord Eden reviewed Beyond the Reach of the Flame, the new release by American death metal band MICAWBER, and he thought it “plays all the right moves” and “has this immense flow to it”. Well, today you get to hear exactly what he’s on about as we premiere an exclusive stream of the whole record before its May 25 release date!

Skinless – Savagery

I must admit, it’s quite refreshing when a record gives you exactly what is advertised.
