Aluk Todolo reveal 'Archive Vol 1' teaser
Over those ten years, including four full length albums, a collaboration and two EPs, ALUK TODOLO have trodden a new path of sonic pursuits. Hailing from France, the exploratory trio get experimental with Krautrock drenched in black metal intensity. Whilst having never been able to be easily pigeonholed, ALUK TODOLO's sound has morphed and reshaped over the years.
Of the new release, the band commented: "We selected those tracks, because they were still in our consciousness after all these years. We approached the release as a whole, assembled the tracks focussing on dynamic, like we did for our latest studio album Voix (instead of making it chronological). For us it's a way to revisit our 10 first years, and use recordings we made on our own, be it rehearsal tracks, or work-in-progress steps, rare tracks releases or just experimentations. It's a collection, and here is Vol.1, we have no clear plan about the Vol.2, but time will tell..."

Pallbearer release new video
The band commented
"Both song and video present a telescopic view on an eternity of corruption. The path of greed leads to misery. When higher awareness allowed us to claw our way out of the mud, we found new ways to exploit one another, abusing the gift that could bring us to new heights. In the end, we pay for our selfishness. Join us for this elegy for what might have been."

Full Of Hell reveal first single and album details
Full Of Hell have had quite the journey leading up to the release of this this third full-length album; the band’s embryonic beginnings displayed their palette at it’s most primitive, d-beat and blast ridden hardcore punk with spats of noise and caustic rhythm, and within a few short years, they have bloomed into a true force to be reckoned with within the punk and metal communities. Since the release of their Profound Lore Records debut album Full Of Hell & Merzbow in late 2014, the band began to truly come into their own, combining elements of grindcore, death/black metal, punk and hardcore with a smattering of sonically laden power electronics and industrial pounding. It would also signal the band being at their most active and prolific ever since their inception in 2009. The band would also add to their repertoire and discography with a direct collaboration album with The Body and several EP’s, one of them being their most-recent split 7”EP with NAILS (which debuted #2 on the Billboard Top 100 Singles Chart).
Now, on Trumpeting Ecstasy, Full Of Hell build upon their progression since the Merzbow collaboration and the releases succeeding it. This time the band decided to go into God City Studios with Kurt Ballou at the production helm to help achieve thir intended vision; the result being the best, strongest-sounding, and most towering Full of Hell release to date. Sonically cataclysmic, the aural deluge that is Trumpeting Ecstasy also features guest appearances by Aaron Turner (Sumac/Old Man Gloom/Mamiffer/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge/Old Man Gloom), Andrew Nolan (Column Of Heaven/The Endless Blockade), and Canadian singer/songwriter Nicole Dollanganger.
Trumpeting Ecstasy is available for pre-order now, here.

Antropofagus reveal new song
This is ANTROPOFAGUS' heaviest and most wicked effort to date, blending old school US death metal influences with their trademark style of brutality. M.O.R.T.E. is a deluge of punishing frantic riffs, monstrous vocals and a relentless drums performance by Davide 'BrutalDave' Billia (BEHEADED, HOUR OF PENANCE). Make no mistake; there is no escape. ANTROPOFAGUS is coming to consume your flesh and invade your soul!
Also look out for the officially licensed vinyl edition from Everlasting Spew Records.
Guitarist Francesco and Vocalist Tya had this to say about the forthcoming Comatose Music release:
Francesco: "We decided to go with a warmer and fatter tone this time. The songs are more straight forward and in your face than the songs on 'Architecture of Lust', and certainly more groovy. I'd say this is the most old school and evil Antropofagus album to date. Dave and I worked hard to make sure this album would have a deeper sanguineous sound, and I also went from a six string to a seven string guitar for this recording. I'd say Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal have been the strongest influences while writing this album, but the Antropofagus trademark is definitely there, so expect pure brutality! Probably our most balanced and mature album so far."
Tya: "This is definitely the Antropofagus album which we worked the most on, the one that required the highest tribute from us. As on a conceptual level, it's drenched of my own blood. M.O.R.T.E. is a continual succession of thoughts, shadows and nightmares shaped into music, extreme and hate-filled against all which is dogmatic to humanity's eyes. A process of rebirth through the evisceration of my own self."

Buckshot Facelift reveal new song
Ohhms reveal new track
Vocalist Paul Waller tells us more about their anti-establishment new song:
"We have tackled the subject of GMOs contaminating the food we eat on our debut EP in the song ‘Bad Seeds’, which highlighted corporate greed and the huge amounts of cash that can be saved by cutting corners. I was shocked that the information was out there in the public domain, and yet we just ignore it and continue to eat poisons day after day.
Musically, it was the first ‘fast’ song that we had ever written, although in reality its pretty much mid-paced and even though it lasts a little over eight minutes in total, I only managed to fit in one verse, one middle eight and a killer chorus at the end. It’s all it needed. It’s disgusting and angry enough, so any more riffs or anymore vocals would have been sensory overload.”

Postvorta reveal album trailer & details
as been protagonist over the past years of some of the most interesting releases coming from the ItalianItalian Underground and foremost the European soil. If with their debut album "Beckoning Light We Will Set Ourselves On Fire" they had already caught the attention of all post-fanatics in the old continent, with their second release "Ægeria" they indeed reached a wider audience.
Third I Rex had recently the honor to join forces with 22 December Records and Drown Within Records for the re-release of the band's works and it is now with extreme joy that we renew our bond with the band by bringing to life a new outstanding opus.
The band has spoken about the new release by stating:
"The 'Carmentis' album is the second chapter of the trilogy started by the band with the previous 'Ægeria'. Discomfort, dark soundscapes, all aspects focusing onto loss, mind breaking suffering and difficult times in life, will go hand in hand with the listener through the whole journey, without mercy".
The album will include important collaborations, featuring Tero Holopainen from the Finnish cult band Callisto who has channeled his visions by writing for the band the song titled "13", and featuring also Mers Sumida, singer of the New York based band Black Table for the song 'Patau'
