Booyakasha! Wicked, wicked, Jungle is massive! Ok, maybe jungle IS massive, but so IS this song from Portuguese metal quintet, We Are Killing Ourselves (WAKO). Off their latest album titled The Road Of Awareness, this exclusive premiere of their new video features live footage of the band doing what they do best, tearing it up one stage! All set to the song “Dissonant Dark Dance” it’s impossible to NOT be shouting out like a spastic kid in some Red Bull-induced hyper mode “Booyaka. Booyaka. WAKO is Massive!”

Taken from the album The Road Of Awareness, this exclusive world premiere of the bludgeoning video for the song “Extispicium” features Portugal’s We Are Killing Ourselves (or WAKO for short) doing what they do best… playing live and brain-bashing audiences with their auditory assault! The video was produced by the band and features live footage provided by Rockline Tribe. Feast your eyes (and ears) on the metal mayhem that is WAKO!

The Firstborn are one of those types of bands that a lot of people are not going to like very much. I know it’s a bit cliche to say, but The Firstborn’s sound is quite hard to describe. According to their bio the band have their roots in black metal, which makes sense as vocally this sounds like that sort of release. Musically however, it sounds nothing like black metal. Instead it’s more like a weird, almost progressive-sounding disc with long tracks that average between 6-9 minutes in length.

After listening to the album Lions Among Men by Portugal’s The Firstborn, I was absolutely blown away by the incredibly comprehensive song writing and soundscapes they achieve with such a large variety of sounds and instruments. However, the one song that sent chills down my spine was “Sounds Liberated as Mantra,” an entirely instrumental song with an absolutely epic sound. The image that it brought to mind was that of a gigantic tidal wave crashing over the land.

Taken from their April 11, 2011 sophomore effort The Road of Awareness, we’re pleased to present you with a free download of the song “Extispicium”. The latest offering from Portuguese death metallers We Are Killing Ourselves was recorded with Daniel Cardoso at Ultrasound Studios in Braga, Portugal and mixed and mastered at Spin Studios in New York City by Grammy award winner Josh Wilbur (Chevelle, Staind, Puddle of Mud, Hatebreed and Lamb of God). Soon thereafter the group would sign to Rastilho Records and unleash this nine song monster of metal unto the world.

Portugal’s pounding, modern metal phenoms We Are Killing Ourselves (or WAKO for short), released their sophomore album The Road Of Awareness in April of 2011. Continued rave reviews aside, to further support the release WAKO and PrueGrainAudio are pleased to present you with the exclusive world premiere of the new video for the song “Drifting Beyond Reality”. Filmed at Gondomar (Portugal) in an abandoned, ruined warehouse, and directed by Rodrigo Fortes, this video musters all the destructive power and technical prowess displayed on the album overall. Equally infectious and groovy, this song boasts concise, surgical technique with a catchy chorus. Take a look!

The Road Of Awareness is the sophomore release from Portuguese death metal band, We Are Killing Ourselves. I’m not familiar with the band’s earlier work so I was not quite sure what to expect going into this release. What I found was an incredibly heavy, extremely technical and at times melodic death metal record that dishes out a serious auditory pounding.
