Cannabis Corpse & Ramming Speed: Do America Tour

This northern autumn, two of the metal underground's fiercest will be combining forces for 6 uncompromising weeks of speed, death, and dankness.




Ramming Speed - Brainwreck (Candlelight/Earsplit)

Thrash metal is back in a big way and Boston’s Ramming Speed are another band that’s dragging the sound screaming and vomiting into the new millennium with a beer in one hand, a bong in the other and bad intentions all round.

Ramming Speed’s debut album Brainwreck is thirty minutes of fast, furious fun.  Thirteen thrashed out punk rock/grind core ditties that owe more than a

The Atlas Moth - A Glorified Piece of Blue Sky (Candlelight/Earsplit)

The Atlas Moth are like a marriage of three fine American traditions. Blues, psychedelic excess and burgers. Burgers? You heard right - these dudes know how to trip you out and keep both your ears and your belly well fed...

In Chicago, IL, you either play the blues or a variant thereof. The Atlas Moth certainly do - in the most distorted, tripped out and eclectic manner imaginable.

Blood Tsunami- Grand Feast For Vultures (Candlelight/Earsplit)

Does anyone know how to say 'Slayer' in Norwegian? Blood Tsunami show no mercy to powerslaves at the altar of sacrifice, but is this the thing that should not be?

Here's a small disclaimer. I am probably the biggest Dark Tranquillity fan known to man. I own all their records.

Absu part ways with guitarist (again); replacement announced

Texas-based mythological occult metal outfit Absu have announced the addition of session lead guitarist Vis Crom (pronounced "Vish Krahm") to the group's ranks. He replaces Zawicizuz, who was recently dismissed due to irreconcilable differences.


Abigail Williams forced to sit out remainder of tour

Abigail Williams, currently winding down dates for the ongoing Conquered & Cursed Tour have to sit out the final week of dates due to sickness within the band.




Susperia working on new video

Norwegian five-piece Susperia are currently working on a new video for the song "Character Flaw" with up-and-coming director/producer Daniel William Bones. Filming took place in Oslo last month and the footage is now being edited.


Afgrund - Vid Helvetets Grindar (Candlelight/Earsplit)

Could be the best grindcore release of the year - pull out all the stops and grind your face off!

This is the second 'full length' release by Swedish/Finnish grindmaniacs Afgrund clocking in at just under half an
