Death metal group Tomb Mold recently released their sophomore record Manor of Infinite Forms on 20 Buck Spin. We spoke with band mastermind Derrick Vella about the new album, their songwriting, and more.
In all honesty, if you’ve ever wondered what it would sound like if Rites Of Spring played breakneck thrash covers of primitive skate punk while sampling serial killers, this is it.
Coffin Birth by Extremity is a genuinely confident, powerful, thought-out example of death worship, and one that’s unquestionably worthy of your time.
Khemmis have achieved a fine balance between the swaggering melodic styles and thunderous rhythms of Iron Maiden and the abyssal emotional depths of YOB on Desolation, bringing the listener an album that feels confident and assured.
No fillers. No hit numbers. Tomb Mold’s Manor of Infinite Forms is just essential extreme metal. Out now on 20 Buck Spin.
Pallbearer brings forth an epic release of maturity and lush textures, in their latest sonic offering Heartless. Read our review here…
Split LP’s can be kind of cool sometimes since, as you usually haven’t heard at least one of the bands, there is an element of surprise. In this instance I had never heard of either Alaric or Atriarch prior to listening to Split LP, so I had no idea what to expect. Judging from the album cover alone I thought I was going to be listening to a couple of death metal bands. Both group’s bios also seemed to suggest they were on the heavier end of things. Surprisingly though, this is not the case. Both Alaric and Atriarch, while a bit on the crunchy side, sound more like The Cure with some heavier rock overtones. Not that this is a problem as I personally love The Cure, it just wasn’t what I was expecting.
With the release of Bay Area dark punk act Alaric’s self-titled debut full-length nearing release early this October, today a song has been unveiled from the forthcoming album to the public. The third track from ‘Alaric’, the ominous “Your God” showcases some of the prime examples of how Alaric infuse their Anarcho punk roots with Gothic, post-punk stylings formulaically creating a unique take on these vintage styles. Meet “Your God” right here.
