We haven’t mentioned Fulgora here on Heavy Blog before, but that’s about to change. Consisting of John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index) and B.L. LaMew, Fulgora are a vicious deathgrind outfit who’ve been making waves in underground metal circles and are about to unleash their first full-length album, Stratagem, onto an unsuspecting world. The album doesn’t hit shelves for another month, but they’re streaming it now. Check it out after the jump!

California Atmospheric Death Metal rising stars Fallujah hope a new record label will help their careers blast off. Details after the break.
Let’s keep it brief, okay folks? This is the second part of our Top 50, Album of the Year list. At the end, you’ll find our Top 10, while tomorrow we’ll have individual staff members’ top 10 lists and our Outliers section: albums that were placed on individual top 10’s but didn’t make the Top 50 list.
The albums you’ll find here were ones that had broad consensus among our large group of staff writers and editors as truly excellent representations of the worlds of metal and other heavy music this year. No doubt you’ll find things to quibble with, but we’re proud of this list and the entries therein.
If you haven’t yet, check out Part I of this list, listing numbers 50 to 26. Alright, OK, no more words. Let’s get to it!
Heavy Blog Thanksgiving Dinner Playlist (Or “Music to Play For the Rich Relatives to Show Them How Well You’ve Turned Out”)
It’s Thanksgiving, a time for football, feast, and showing the rich relatives how well you’ve turned out. Help us put together a playlist for the occasion after the break.
After years of DIY touring and lots of word of mouth, 2014 is a breakout year for Fallujah with a spot on Summer Slaughter and a well-recieved new CD. Guitarist Scott Carstairs hops on Skype to talk about writing, touring, and the band’s success after the jump.
Maryland is becoming somewhat of a mecca for extreme metal. Not only is Baltimore home to arguably the biggest annual metal festival in the U.S., Maryland Deathfest, but the state of Maryland has also bred some heavyweight metal bands of its own, including most notably Dying Fetus, Misery Index and Periphery. Whereas these bands respectively showcase the death metal, deathgrind and progressive metal Maryland has to offer, Condemn the Infected are seeking to tear out jugular veins and kill puppies with their crushing brand of brutal technical death metal, and it’s only a matter of time before their name appears alongside their fellow Maryland peers as another heavyweight.
Revocation are easily one of the site’s favorite bands collectively. Many of these writers listed their self titled record from last year in their “Best Of 2013″ list, and one writer even cites Chaos Of Forms as their favorite album of all time. Recently, the band completed their tour with Whitechapel, Devildriver, Rivers Of Nihil, Fit For An Autopsy, and Carnifex. I was back home and had the chance to stop by their show in Fort Lauderdale, so naturally I caught up with David to talk 7 string guitars, the new record, and Trick Daddy’s favorite seafood restaurant. Check out the interview in full, after the jump!

What might possibly be the most anticipated annual package tour has just announced the lineup for its 2014 iteration! Teased headliners Morbid Angel have been confirmed as well as Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Thy Art Is Murder, Goatwhore, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Within the Ruins, and Fallujah.
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.
