OBLIVION made some waves last year with this video. it was insane, brutal, and technical. they’ve picked up a few members, including Ben Orum (ex-all shall perish), since then and have released the above album. (in valley girl voice) “LIKE OH MY FUCKING FICTIONAL GOD!” they didnt lose anything in between then and now. hell if nothing else they got fucking heavier. this is a pure assault on your cranium. the truest form of death metal today. i expect nothing but amazing things for these dudes.
oh did i mention that through their Bandcamp you get this 11 track album for $9. let me repeat that…. 9 DOLLARS, 9 BUCKS, 9 FUCKING GREEN BACKS. and if you wanna feel special spend 1 more dollar and get the hard copy which comes with 3 extra tracks and an immediate download of the, now, 14 track album. oh and the hard copy is a limited press of 1000 so go get that shit. start your year off with some amazing music from a new band that is bound to make more than a few waves this year.
DEVOURMENT - “Fifty Ton War Machine” Lyric Video (by RelapseRecords)
today’s NSFW VIDEO OF THE DAY comes from the almighty Devourment. the video is more of the gross gore kind of NSFW, and the reason why i even think that is it NSFW is because they “animate” the album cover. its only the done to like 4 pieces of the album cover then replayed over and over as the lyrics scroll over them. anyway its still a damn good and heavy ass song. so give it a listen…. but DO NOT WATCH THIS AT WORK…. unless you wanna offend someone or probably lose your job or you know make people think you’re even more of a “freak.” so i mean if you wanna do that then go for it.
Conceived In Sewage comes out on the follow:
Feb. 19th North America
Feb. 22nd Germany
Feb . 25th World.
get your preorders here.
well METAL HAMMER has the full album, Ride The Void, up for a listen here.
the single MILK LEG is out digitally on Feb 5th and as a 7” TBA. i have to say this is pretty fucking crazy looking. its one of those you can stare at for a while and keep seeing different little things.
over the weekend Randy Blythe released via Instagram a picture of a suitcase accompanied by a thought on his court date in Pruge….
“The last 2 or 3 days I have been getting ready mentally to leave my home & return to Prague to do this whole trial thing in early February. It’s not something I particularly WANT to do; but inside, my gut & heart tells me it is the RIGHT thing to do. I cannot turn my back [on] the right thing. As I’ve been thinking, I’ve [been] shooting [pictures] a lot around my hometown. I love this place. A couple of days ago I went to my mechanic to get my truck worked on- the garage is over near the CSX train yard here in Richmond. I dropped off my truck & went creeping under the over pass that runs above the tracks. As usual, there was a lot of sleeping gear, trash, old mattresses & stuff that homeless people keep there. In my younger days, I used to ride freight trains across our country. I have spent many nights under bridges just like this one in freight yards across the USA. I have always loved to travel, & have been across the USA three times without a dime in my pocket most of the time, learning the survival skills of the hobos & street people of our country. You can get by with almost nothing if you know what you are doing. This old suit case sitting up on this ledge really captured my attention. I wonder what it once held? Safe travels to whoever owns it…”
just as a refresher, Randy blythe was detained in mid May last year following the Czech Republic issuing a warrant for “bodily harm of the fourth degree, resulting in the death of a fan.” he was near to a month in the Czech jail before being let come home and a trail date of Feb. 4th being set.
Court spokeswoman Martina Lhotáková, said: “We have issued Randy Blythe with a court summons, and he is obliged to attend the hearing in person. The trial will determine the culpability of Blythe and his potential punishment.”
if convicted Mr.Blythe is looking at 5-10 Yrs in jail.
here is to hoping all goes well Randy.

ABORTED - Vermicular, Obscene, Obese (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO) (by CenturyMedia)
speaking of lyric videos one of death metal’s most fucking heavy bands has released one for “Vermicular, Obscene, Obese” coming off of GLOBAL FLATLINE. very heavy, very fast, very wanna sacrifice babies to his kinda song, sooooo its damn good. give your ears a thrashing above.
Global Flatline is out now on Century Media records (which means i wouldn’t torrent this, CM records is no stranger to filing lawsuits against illegal downloaders *cough* iced earth *cough* *cough* all shall perish *cough*)
Motionless In White - “Black Damask” Lyric Video (by FearlessRecords)
can you remember a time when a band didn’t release a lyric video. fuck i barely can. so in following with the viral marketing that is YouTube Motionless In White has released a lyric video for the song “Black Damask” feature live footage from their headlining Infamous tour. id have to say if it wasn’t for the “subtitles” for what he was saying this would be just another music video. anyway give it a go.
Infamous is out now on Fearless records.
Abriosis “Crypsis” Lyric Video (by AbriosisBand)
No Bragging Rights “Legacy“
the latest music video for these Riverside natives, Legacy, comes off of their album Cycles. out now on Good Fight and E One records.
i wouldnt say the whole band is. it just seems that their guitarist,Mike Reynolds, is a bit on the being gay is a sin thing. he said the following yesterday:
“There IS a state church being formed, there is going to be an exclusive acceptance of preachers who advocate the LGBT. Don’t be deceived, homosexuality is a sin. This sin with all other sins is what Jesus died for. He conquered so that we would be free.
No such thing as a gay Christian, the same as there is no such thing as a Christian who loves his sin. Don’t be fooled by the formation of a state church as though the government is being converted, they only use the name of Jesus for their Progressive liberal agenda.
If you are a Christian then separate yourself from this civil religion that advocates sin. Be true to God.”
so as you can see this is a bit FUCKED! so today For Today as a band released this statement.
For Today has always and will always be a band that is about loving people, we have no hatred towards any people regardless of what they believe or how they live. We may not agree on everything but Jesus loves you and died for you. And so would we.
Blessings, For Today
*le sigh* so i love that they really didnt defend him but they didnt stick up for him either.
marking the 15th year for this festival, one that im proud to say for once isn’t in Europe doesn’t mean they’re gonna take it easy on you. the Metal Alliance Tour is actually gonna be within this fest. which for some i could see as a bitch, but id say SHUT THE FUCK UP or something of that magnitude.
