I’ve heard the new album from metalcore masters Unearth, and I can say with the utmost confidence that it is their best album since The Oncoming Storm. The band has released a few tracks from the album, and now they’re streaming another at their MerchNow page. The song is called “Guards of Contagion”, and like the songs released before it, it absolutely crushes. Listen after the jump.

Listen to the first twenty seconds of ‘The Swarm’ and you would be forgiven for thinking that The Black Dahlia Murder had just dropped a surprise new track. Thankfully, the first new music from Unearth since 2011’s Darkness In The Light does not take long to remind everyone that, contrary to popular belief, the NWOAHM still lives on. Its hairline may have receded somewhat and the beer gut may be a bit larger but metalcore is still here and it’ll be damned if it doesn’t still have one last round in the chamber. Get some hair swirling, air guitar magic after the jump!
Code Orange Kids are now grown up and have declared themselves king under the name Code Orange, so the natural next step in their career would be to announce a huge tour, right? Right. Today the band took to Facebook to announce the month long trek across America they will be making with Twitching Tongues, and a slew of other bands as well, including a couple of our favorites, Nails! They were also kind enough to throw a new track our way, courtesy of Alternative Press. You can stream ‘My World’ over at AltPress’ website. Check out the tour dates below, and make sure to follow the key to find out who you will and will not see at your date.

Yearly Philadelphia hardcore festival This Is Hardcore has just presented its final lineup for 2014, taking place from July 24th through the 27th.
It’s apparent that Killswitch Engage‘s new album is among many of our most anticipated releases lists. The return of Jesse Leach, the singles sounding as fierce as ever; it’s a recipe for success. Which is why I’m excited to tell everyone here that you have to wait no longer to hear this beast. Head on over to Alternative Press and check out their new album, Disarm The Descent, in its entirety RIGHT NOW. I’m only 5 songs in, but overall I’m thoroughly satisfied. It’s way better than their last album was, and it’s a return to the heaviness that the band first introduced to us in the early days of the new millennium. So go listen if you want, and be sure to pick up the record when it drops next week on Roadrunner Records.
