You may remember Summer Slaughter and the American tour-package that managed to rile the internet up by daring to change their direction and picking up Periphery and Animals As Leaders, alongside Cattle Decapitation and Revocation last year. Naturally, every mouth-breather and his brother took it as a personal insult and it resulted in some of the funniest and by extension saddest complaining I’ve ever seen on the internet. And that’s saying something.

Nergal - Behemoth

Coming in hot off a triumphant battle with Leukemia and having a hit on his hands with the acclaimed new album The Satanist, Behemoth frontman Adam Nergal Darski must be feeling more invincible than ever before. The outspoken musician has made plenty of controversial statements in the past, but of course he’s bound to say something that will ruffle someone’s feathers sooner rather than later. We’re not even a week past The Satanist‘s release date and we already have a polarizing statement out of Nergal as he shares his distaste for the United States death metal scene.

It would seem 2014 is putting it’s best foot forward, with a ridiculous number of brilliant death metal releases all coming to light very early on in the year.

The next in line is Alterbeast, a Sacramento based group formerly known as the Gary Busey Amber Alert, signed to Unique Leader Records and are set to drop their debut full length Immortal on the 18th of March. The band recently dropped a new track by the name of ‘Flesh Bound Text‘ and, to be completely honest, I’m still picking pieces of my face out of the speaker cones.

Two years seems to be the standard between albums for most bands, but not for Pig Destroyer. The band rarely tours and gets together for new music pretty much whenever they feel like it. They all hold down day jobs, but guitarist Scott Hull is a busy enough man by himself, with the past year being filled with mixing/mastering jobs, Pig Destroyer shows, and working on FOUR new Agoraphobic Nosebleed records. We had to wait five years between the last two records, so until recently I wasn’t about to hold my breath for a new Pig Destroyer record for a while.

Dying Fetus

In a turn of events that has experts baffled and the internet in shock, it seems that complaining on the internet has actually, for the first time in recorded history, produced physically tangible results.

de deathfest II

Europe has North America beat when it comes to metal fests. So far it’s undisputed, but we’re catching up. Regional “deathfests” are popping up across the States, and while Maryland Deathfest is the biggest event in extreme metal, others are beginning to make a name for themselves. Maryland Deathfest has a knack for pulling in rare live events and one-off reunions, but Delaware Deathfest scored a coveted set from the newly re-minted Skinless, as well as other big names such as Dying Fetus, Suffocation, Deicide, and more. Catch photos from days one and three of the event below, courtesy of Maclyn Bean Photography.

 Murder Made God

Death metal bands are a dime a dozen so it’s always good to find one that really catches your ear and while I can’t quite put my finger on exactly what it is that makes Greece’s Murder Made God so enticing, but the two songs that they’ve released in support of their upcoming album Irreverence seem to push all the right brutal buttons.

Despite forming little more than two years ago, Melbourne slammers Whoretopsy have wasted little time in making a name for themselves within the burgeoning Australian brutal music scene, their horrifically absurdist and grotesquely humerous brand of death metal even landing them a slot alongside Cannibal Corpse at the 2012 Bang-Cock Deathfest.

As they now gear up to support Dying Fetus in a few weeks time before heading back to Asia in support of Obituary, the band have just released the first track from their forthcoming sophomore album, as well as an accompanying lyric video produced by Blixa Productions.  Entitled ‘Nature’s Pocket’, the song is a cautionary tale to all of you out there who wile away your work days looking lustfully at your co-workers, wondering what sexual deviance lies hidden beneath the veneer of mundane office attire, and secretly hoping for a chance to one day live out your fucked up fantasies.

Dying Fetus - Reign Supreme

Dying Fetus are one of those bands that just knows how to rock their balls off, and yours as well. They’re one of the last great trios out there, and while they’re not nearly as famous as some of the others, they’re definitely one of the bigger death metal bands. Everyone around these parts seems to really enjoy their music, and their last record Reign Supreme was referred to by most all of us as a great death metal/technical record. Now the band has decided to make another music video for a song on the record, and they chose ‘Second Skin’. Honestly, not a song I would’ve thought they would choose but hey, I guess that’s why I’m not the one making those decisions. The video goes back and forth from live band performances to a storyline about a serial killer, and in true death metal fashion, gets up close and personal. You can watch the video now on Youtube. If you haven’t already, head out and get Reign Supreme, out on Relapse Records, and prepare for some heavy, technical death metal.


Caricature is the batshit insane brainchild of one Joseph Spiller, formerly of Too Late The Hero, The Binary Code, and System Divide, and is easily the best band you’ve never heard of up until right this very moment. Joe took some time out of his busy schedule yesterday to talk to me a little bit about the record, the history of the band, and as the title of the entire article says, give you the track ‘Saviors II’ off of the new record, The Sound Of One Man’s World Collapsing.

Hell yeah! Spiller manages to write music that certainly sounds familiar enough that we know where he’s coming from, but keeps his distance to the point where the Caricature sound is easily definable. Bonus points for the counteraction of all the heaviness going on with the clean vocal lines, especially when it’s so easy to simply scream and blast over all that. Just to reference other Caricature works so you know where this song is coming from in a sense, check out the Birth by Sleep EP on their Bandcamp to get a better feel for how this song fits in with the rest.

Aside from the song, we had gotten around to talking about the history of Caricature, which has held some big names (and still does!). Though it might seem trivial, the next record is a concept based heavily off of Joe’s history under the Caricature moniker:
