SONG PREMIERE: German Crust/Noise Rock Band [b.abuse]

[b.abuse]- Memories Of Better Days Are Gone

One of my favorite parts of writing about music is discovering long running bands that hadn’t been on my radar previously.  Germany’s [b.abuse] is the latest to come across my desk and they’ve made a strong first impression with their fifth full length ‘Memories Of Better Days Are Gone’, due out February 23rd on WOOAAARGH, Vinylaceton, and Ecocentric Records.  Their sound is one that’s hard to pin down, and having celebrated their twenty fifth anniversary in 2016 it seems as though shape shifting between styles has been a staple of their material.  With hints of crust, post punk, noise rock, and plenty of other elements present in their instrumentals, the band seals it with strong hooks and aggressive vocals.  Today we’re premiering the song Nothing Will Remain so you can discover all of the twists and turns [b.abuse] has to offer.

SONG PREMIERE: Spanish Death Metal Band Neter

Neter- Inferus

Spanish death metal band Neter has been around since 2004, making a name for themselves through the release of two full length albums and prominent tours throughout their home country.  This year the group is preparing for the release of album number three, which they’ve titled ‘Inferus’.  The material continues to find Neter offering up bottom heavy, lumbering death metal that’s focused on grooves and just the right amount of atmosphere.  With ‘Inferus’ set to come out January 15th as a collaboration between Satanath Records, Cimmerian Shade Recordings, MurdHer Records, and Black Plague Records, today we’re premiering the final song The Eye of Sirius.

SONG PREMIERE: Greek Black Metal Band Inhibitions

Inhibitions- La Danse Macabre

Satanath Records has been on a roll when it comes to finding noteworthy black metal from around the world.  One of their latest signings is Greek black metal duo Inhibitions, a group that has been around since 2008 and has released two full length albums to date.  Despite flying under the radar until now, it’s clear on the group’s upcoming release ‘La Danse Macabre’ that they’re worth paying attention to thanks to a mixture of foreboding symphonic elements and the icy, jagged edges of traditional black metal.  With the album due out January 13th as a co-release between Satanath and Ira Aeterna, today we’re premiering the song Rusty Razor.

SONG PREMIERE: Colombian Black Metal Band Evil Nerfal

Evil Nerfal- Bellum Est Pater Omnium

Colombian black metal band Evil Nerfal has been lurking in the underground for close to a decade now, but it wasn’t until 2016 that the group released their debut full length ‘Hail Black Metal​.​.​. Vobiscum Buer​.​.​.’.   With their roots in European and South American black metal, the group delivered a dose of scorching material that emphasized blistering riffing and speed.   Close to two years have passed since then and now the band is prepping their sophomore effort ‘Bellum Est Pater Omnium’, due out January 9th on GrimmDistribution and Morbid Skull Records.  With this effort Evil Nerfal has let some death metal influences seep into their black metal and tightened up their production values without losing that unhinged and chaotic feeling from before.  Today we’re premiering the song Foedus Versus Deus (Against the Great Drone of History) so you can hear what these Colombian maniacs have to offer.

SONG PREMIERE: Polish Death Metal Band Manipulation

Manipulation- The Future of Immortality

It’s not uncommon for albums that have hit the ten year mark to get a re-release of some type, especially if it has been out of print for a few years.  But what’s a little more unusual is a band making significant tweaks to that release.  This is what Poland’s Manipulation has done with the re-release of their debut full length from 2007 ‘The Future of Immortality’, as not only is the recording remastered but the vocals have been completely redone by the group’s new vocalist Kret.  While these guys may be a death metal band you hadn’t come across before, they’ve put out an EP and two full lengths since ‘The Future of Immortality’ came out originally, and with another album on the horizon this new version of their debut is a great way to discover what they’re all about.  With the December 24th release on GrimmDistribution fast approaching, today we’re premiering the track Loading The Language.

SONG PREMIERE: U.S. Crossover Thrash/Hardcore Band hell bent

hell bent- hell bent

Rhode Island’s hell bent has only been around for about two years, but its members have been a part of bands like Dropdead, Ulcer, and Paindriver and that experience definitely shows.  While they may come from a powerviolence and d-beat background, hell bent takes some of these influences and injects a good deal of crossover thrash and old-school hardcore into the mix.  The group originally released their self-titled EP on cassette last year in very limited quantities, and now they’re reissuing it on another run of cassettes alongside a digital option on January 12th.  Today we’re premiering the song Desert Death Lord so you can discover the raging shot of adrenaline this EP is capable of providing.

ALBUM PREMIERE: Finnish Black Metal Band Perdition Winds

Perdition Winds- Transcendent Emptiness

Though this may be the first exposure to Finnish black metal band Perdition Winds for many of you, the group has been honing their craft for the better part of seven years through releases with well-known labels like Woodcut, Darker Than Black, and Satanath.  Featuring members that are also in Desolate Shrine, Corpsessed, and Lie in Ruins, they may come from more of a death metal background but over the course of an EP, full length, and split the band has proven their ability to do the harsh and hellish black metal sound justice.  For album number two, ‘Transcendent Emptiness’, Perdition Winds has debuted their new vocalist J.I. and signed with Hellthrasher Productions.  The resulting effort finds them branching out a bit further towards without losing their abrasive, dense instrumentation.  With the album due out on CD and digital formats on December 8th (with vinyl set to come out in January), today we’re pleased to offer you a stream of the entire release.

SONG PREMIERE: Swiss Black Metal Band Enoid

Enoid- Livssyklus & Dodssyklus

Swiss musician Ormenos can be hard to keep up with, as he’s involved with a slew of different black metal bands within both a studio and live capacity.  This year alone he’s been on releases from Pure, Oculus, and Serpen Luminis and now with the end of 2017 approaching Ormenos has put together ‘Livssyklus & Dodssyklus’ which is a compilation of his first two full lengths as Enoid.  Compared to the industrial black metal of his other main project Borgne, Enoid has always channeled dark and violent black metal that pulled from a number of second-wave influences.  Last year’s ‘Exilé aux confins des tourments’ left a strong impression, and now with the impending release of the compilation via GrimmDistribution and Final Gate Records on December 16th we invite you to listen to a remastered version of Riruom.

SONG PREMIERE: Russian Depressive Black Metal Band Taiga

Taiga- Cosmos

Russian depressive black metal band Taiga has maintained a steady pace of material since 2014, putting out a full length each year alongside a number of EP’s.  This year’s album ‘Cosmos’, the group’s fourth overall, finds band founder Nikolay Seredov pushing towards some new territory while also heading back towards some styles found on his earliest releases.  Now joined by Satanath Records owner and Abigorum member Aleksey Korolyov on keyboards, ‘Cosmos’ is an exploration of the self and what happens as one pushes themselves outsides of those confines.  Set for release on December 15th as a co-release between Symbol of Domination Productions and Final Gate Records, today we bring you a premiere of the song Жить.
