Slayer Share Part One Of Retrospective Web Series On Their Career

With Slayer planning to call it quits after one final world tour, the band have decided to launch a web series to reflect on their 37 year career. You can check out the first episode below:


Between The Buried And Me Preview New Song “Gold Distance”

Between The Buried And Me have posted a preview for their new song “Gold Distance.“ This track is from the band’s new album “Automata I,“ which will be released on March 9. That effort is part one of their two-part album “Automata.“ The second part will be released this summer.

Earthless Premiere New Song “Black Heaven”

Earthless are streaming the title track of their new album “Black Heaven,“ which will be released on March 16. You can check that out below:

Drummer Mario Rubalcaba said the following about the song:

“[It’s] a whirlwind ride through dark clouds and muddy waters, hi-energy sludge that rolls and heavy riffage that rock. Psychedelic sprinkles all over the place make me wanna turn this sucker up loud as hell only to howl at the heavens.”

Bassist Mike Eginton added:

“The main riff for ‘Black Heaven‘ came about during a soundcheck in Australia in 2015. I think we sort of played that riff a little bit several times on that tour while we were setting up. Other parts came in over the following years, but it wasn’t ever worked on very seriously until we started working on ‘Black Heaven‘. Then it came together pretty quickly when we started jamming it out.”

Kataklysm Reveal Cover Art & Track Listing For New Album “Meditations”

Kataklysm have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new album “Meditations.“ The effort was produced by guitarist Jean-François Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin and it was mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour). Stay tuned for a release date.

“Meditations” Track Listing:

01. “Guillotine”
02. “Outsider”
03. “The Last Breath I’ll Take Is Yours”
04. “Narcissist”
05. “Born To Kill And Destined To Die”
06. “In Limbic Resonance”
07. “And Then I Saw Blood”
08. “What Doesn’t Break Doesn’t Heal”
09. “Bend The Arc, Cut The Cord”
10. “Achilles Heel”

Frontman Maurizio Iacono commented:

“This is a very personal album to me with old wounds being revisited – I felt a big urge to pour my soul into this release. The boys and I were isolated under the same roof during the writing process, just like we did in the early days…with no worries except having fun, being honest and delivering a serious album that represents us today but respects our past. Our new story is coming and we are eager to share it with you.”
