Here’s your double dose of death and black metal news for today.
The song “Cataclysmic Purification” from upcoming album Blood Oath is now available for streaming at Suffocation’s myspace. Not exactly my cup of tea, as I’m into more technical and progressive death metal acts, but it’s still pretty good. If you’re into straight up death metal, this new song is a sure listen. Go see Suffocation this summer on the Summer Slaughter tour with co-headliners Necrophagist and a whole slew of other acts. The album comes out July 3rd in Europe and July 14th in North America.
Polish black metal veterans Behemoth have posted the artwork (below) for their upcoming album Evangelion, set for release August 17th on Nuclear Blast.The artwork itself is pretty epic. Apparently it depicts the Whore of Babylon. It’s supposed to represent rebellion against God. You know, typical black metal stuff. Keep a look out for these two albums.
