According to the accompanying press release, AngelBlast is a brand new outfit composed of members from Excruciate and Darkened, the latter being label mates given this new outfit recently signed to Edged Circle Records. Their debut outing is nothing more than a three song seven-inch vinyl/digital release titled Rotting Paradise, boasting comparisons to plenty of nineties old-school death metal and “Swedeath” legends ranging from Morbid Angel to Malevolent Creation and even Necrophobic. But does this just over eight minutes long EP accomplish what it sets out to do, or does it fail to leave even the most memorable of indentations upon the minds of those privy enough to give it the time of day?
AFTERMATH published the latest lyric video “Scientists And Priest” on November 2, 2019. It’s the 6th official video for the new album “There Is Something Wrong“, which gets overwhelming media feedback.
Toronto black metal band ASTAROTH INCARNATE have released a video for their song “I Am Fire/I Am Death (Omega)” via Exclaim! The song is from their upcoming EP Ascendance.
Visceral Disgorge formed back in 2007 after Eaten Alive had disbanded, only to follow suit and split in 2009. Later that very year, Visceral Disgorge reformed, focusing on honing their craft and what would eventually become their debut album. That recording, Ingesting Putridity, was released in 2011 through Amputated Vein Records. Since then? Studio silence. That was until they signed with Agonia Records, unleashed a digital single titled “Architects of Warping Flesh” in June of 2019, acting as a precursor to their long awaited follow-up Slithering Evisceration. But does the band manage to capture that raw spark that made the first outing such a beloved underground gem, or does it suffer from too much digital interference?
It was a sad day when Despised Icon announced they were throwing in the towel back in 2010. Thankfully for their fans [myself included] the group came back in 2014 and promptly signed with Nuclear Blast Records to unleash their overdue fifth album Beasts two years later, which was met with the same fan-fare as their previous efforts. Fast forward another three years and the act prepares to let their latest creation loose for a mid-November 2019 date, clocking in at a hefty eleven songs over thirty-six minutes. But does this live up to their previous outings, or is it more of a step backwards?
