WRVTH Release New Track, For Whvt It’s Wvrth


Sweeping in to cause up quite a squall, the California-based WRVTH (“Wrath”, formerly Wrath of Vesuvius) are premiering a new track today from their new album, the upcoming self-titled WRVTH. The band has had some issues in the past regarding the release of their previous album, Revelations, since it came out, and it’s good to finally hear a full new song from these upcoming technical deathcore aficionados.

Fallujah Let You Know What “Starlit Path” Looks Like Live


The Bay Area’s Fallujah have been one of the most talked-about new death metal bands to come up in the past few years ever since they dropped their incredible second LP, The Flesh Prevails. Hell, the band even got signed to Nuclear Blast Records shortly afterwards, which will undoubtedly help them get on bigger tours and help put their music out to a wider audience in the future. Now that they’ve been touring pretty relentlessly since last summer, the band teamed up with Sickdrummer Magazine to make a multi-cam live video for the album’s opening track, “Starlit Path.” Check it out below!

PHOTOS: The Contortionist, Revocation, Fallujah, TOOTHGRINDER, Oceanwalker—February 8th, 2015 @ Mojoe’s, Joliet, IL


The Contortionist are basically unstoppable. Having opened for Periphery in the fall of last year, the band continued to play more shows with Intervals, snagging Polyphia on the way for another set of dates ending in Chicago. All in support of their third album, Language [review], which caused much contention in listeners.

This time around, The Contortionist stopped by Mojoe’s of Joliet with Revocation, who also released a phenomenal album in 2014 [review], Fallujah, who did much the same [review], the always-stellar TOOTHGRINDER, and Chicago locals Oceanwalker.

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Irreversible Mechanism – Outburst

irreversible mechanism infinite fields

Last year, technical and progressive death metal’s legion of fans were enamored with releases from Beyond Creation, Archspire, and Fallujah. Now, Belarus two-piece act Irreversible Mechanism (with the help of former The Faceless drummer Lyle Cooper on tap as a session drummer) are fast becoming a band to become the darlings of the genre for 2015.

Case in point: within twelve hours of their debut album Infinite Fields going live on Bandcamp for their intended independent release in December, our favorite label Blood Music scooped them up with a record deal and promptly removed the album from Bandcamp. Few people got to hear the record in that brief time frame the album was live, but those who have can attest to why Blood Music were so eager to be called home to this act’s new breed of tech death.

With the label now eying a Spring release, we’ve been given the honor of teaming up with Blood Music and Irreversible Mechanism to present a premiere of the album’s third track ‘Outburst‘, which you can hear after the jump.

Fallujah Announce West Coast Headlining Run

fallujah west coast tour 2015

Fallujah continued their evolution into the world of atmospheric death metal last year with their celebrated sophomore full-length The Flesh Prevails. Around these parts, there’s some behind-the-scenes disputes on the album’s quality and importance among staff, but that didn’t keep it from landing at #12 on our Best Of 2014 countdown.

Unfortunately we haven’t had much opportunity to see the band in a headlining capacity since its release, so hopefully we’ll begin seeing more of that throughout 2015. We’re already beginning to see some signs of life out of the Bay Area act and their 2015 touring schedule for the act’s recently announced East Coast / Midwest tour in support of The Contortionist, but now the group has expanded their touring plans to include West Coast headlining dates with support from Archspire, Lorna Shore, and The Zenith Passage. Get dates below.

It looks like the tour announcements for 2015 just keep rolling in, and this time it’s one of the most diverse lineups yet. Indiana’s progressive metal powerhouse The Contortionist are going out on their second headlining run across North America in support of their third LP, Language.

Earlier this year, they were opening for Periphery and continued that tour with Intervals and Polyphia in tow, with their final show in Chicago.
