Fit For An Autopsy Premiere “Fear Tomorrow” Video

Fit For An Autopsy have premiered a new video for their new single “Fear Tomorrow.“ The band commented:

“‘Fear Tomorrow‘ is a song we’ve been sitting on for some time but decided the moment was right to finish and release it. To be fair, we’re not really a positive band and we never show you the light at the end of the tunnel, so don’t expect a happy ending here. FFAA uses music as an outlet to share its distaste for the world, and now we can all share that together — from a safe distance quarantined in our homes.”

Exhumed & Gruesome Announce New Split Release

Exhumed and Gruesome have announced a new split release titled “Twisted Horror.” The effort will be available on June 5 and it will feature three songs from Exhumed, “Rot Your Brain,“ “Buried To Die,” and “Dead, Deader, Deadest,” and two songs from Gruesome, “A Mind Decayed” and “Led Into The Dark.“ You can stream Exhumed’s “A Mind Decayed“ below:

Matt Harvey commented:

“As everyone knows, it’s a weird, surreal time for us all. So many plans have been disrupted at this point, it’s academic to even get into, but one thing that we didn’t want to postpone was this new Exhumed / Gruesome split record.

With so many of us stuck at home, we’re all depending on Death Metal to keep us sane more than ever, so we figured why wait? We’ve also been working on a US tour featuring both Exhumed and Gruesome (and some awesome special guests), and as soon as it’s realistic to announce something, we will.

In the meantime, here’s new music to warp your impressionable minds, so tune in, turn on, and rot your brain!”

The record will be released digitally and as a vinyl LP packaged with a 100-page printed zine. You can listen to Walker‘s track “Time reign cemenT“ below, courtesy of Revolver.

Haken Premiere “Prosthetic” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Virus”

Haken have premiered a new video for their new song “Prosthetic.” This track is from the band’s new album “Virus,” which will be released on June 5.

The group commented:

“‘Prosthetic‘ was the first song we completed during the ‘Virus‘ writing sessions and we always felt it would be the perfect opener for the album. It’s a very guitar heavy track with its roots in 80s thrash riffing, but with the unconventional rhythmic twists and turns we often like to explore in Haken. We sadly never had a Jeff Hanneman and Robert Fripp collaboration, but this song at least draws on inspiration from them both!

Lyrically the song is a bridge between our two albums ‘Vector‘ and ‘Virus‘. The message was brilliantly brought to life by video director Vicente Cordero, who also beautifully captured the live energy of the band in a way that both enhances the song, and perfectly sets the scene for what’s to come.”

Drummer Ray Hearne added:

“Since releasing ‘The Mountain‘ in 2013, one question has been asked of us time and time again, ‘who is the Cockroach King?’. This is something we were interested in exploring more deeply too, so we essentially did that through our music; elaborating and expanding upon the intervallic, harmonic, rhythmic and lyrical themes of that song. The end result is in an arc which spans across two albums: ‘Vector‘ and ‘Virus‘.”

“Virus” Track Listing:

01. “Prosthetic”
02. “Invasion”
03. “Carousel”
04. “The Strain”
05. “Canary Yellow”
06. “Messiah Complex I: Ivory Tower”
07. “Messiah Complex II: A Glutton For Punishment”
08. “Messiah Complex III: Marigold”
09. “Messiah Complex IV: The Sect”
10. “Messiah Complex V: Ectobius Rex”
11. “Only Stars”

Vader Premiere “Into Oblivion” Music Video

Vader have premiered a new video for their new song “Into Oblivion.” This track is from the band’s new album “Solitude In Madness,” which will be released on May 1.

Piotr “Peter” Wiwczarek commented:

“Humanity never learns from its lessons. I feel tensions continuing to rise around the world. People have forgotten about true pain, from a bigger picture standpoint. Generationally, the new generation doesn’t respect the old, and I’d challenge they don’t even respect themselves. Our everyday lives are on TV, so there’s no soul left. Everything’s empty. I think technology is also sucking the human out of us. There are more lonely people now than ever before, and yet we’re supposed to be connected together by technology. It’s madness! That’s where the title, ‘Solitude In Madness’, came from, actually. Of course, I approach these topics in a very Vader way. I love telling stories and expressing myself through those stories.”
