Necromancing The Stone boasts Arsis frontman James Malone, along with two members of Brimstone Coven — John Williams and Justin Wood. The band’s rounded out by The Absence’s Jeramie Kling and on bass, former Black Dahlia Murder […]

Here’s Exmortus Riffing The National Anthem

Exmortus

I have heard many other countries’ “theme songs,” as it were. Many are quite beautiful. Most, though, are unlistenable dreck. But none has ever come close to giving me goosebumps, which hearing the U.S. national anthem sometimes does. I didn’t get ‘em listening to Exmortus’ version of the “Star-Spangled Banner;” I was too busy banging […]

There’s some tricky parts on the new record that require the band bring along a soprano. Veronica Bordacchini is just […]

Arsis Announce Crowd-Funding Campaign

Arsis

Great. It’s as if every band I dig realized I don’t approve of crowd-funding campaigns, and decided to piss me off. I guess this is simply the way the entire industry’s heading, and I need to accept it. I mean, Universal Music — the largest label on the planet — is launching a crowd-funding campaign […]

Byzantine Frontman Releasing Covers Album With Black Cap Miner Project

This was on the band's Facebook page

ThePRP directed me to a story on Byzantine’s frontman Chris Ojeda’s new project, called Black Cap Miner. I was unaware of the project hitherto, so, props to that site for turning me on to it. Seems Ojeda’s the recipient of some recent crowdfunding cash, with a release of thrash covers impending. He claims the effort […]

Video: Formless Debut New Song

Formless

Over the last couple years, Connecticut techdeath band Formless have made some waves on the Internet, even garnering praise from Decrepit Birth’s Matt Sotelo and Greg Macklin (bassist for Jeff Loomis). That’s pretty fucking impressive. Formless released a three song demo in 2010, which featured 20 minutes of some masterful Arsis/Decrepit Birth/Dissection worship, but managed […]
