Cannibal Corpse - Premiere New NSFW Music Video

The latest visual cut from Cannibal Corpse is from the mind of horror FX veteran Doug Sakmann.

Sakmann shot the concept in Philadelphia, PA and the live footage was captured by Jesse Davis in San Francisco, CA. Check out the "Red Before Black" video clip below.

Allegaeon - Apoptosis

How can you restrain yourself and write distinctive, enjoyable songs when you wield the unfathomable instrumental prowess of a technical death metal band? Many artists struggle to escape the technical rut, and we wind up with a lot more Malmsteens than Morellos in the process. For Allegaeon, it's not such a chore.

Aoratos - Gods Without Name

Since my first listening session of Gods Without Name I keep asking myself what it is exactly that Naas Alcameth dreams of. The man behind Bestia Arcana, Nightbringer, Akhlys and now Aoratos (from the Greek word "Αόρατος" which means invisible) just keeps coming up with music that feels inspired by the most frightening of nightmares hidden in the deepest unconscious.

Full Of Hell

Getting more into grindcore in recent years, no band has really made an impression upon me quite like Full Of Hell have. Celebrating their tenth anniversary of existence this year, calling the group "grindcore" almost seems a bit unfair, as their insertion of industrial, noise, death metal, and black metal influences into their formula makes their sound unusually dynamic and distinct by grind standards. After getting floored by the band's new Weeping Choir album this past Friday, I managed to hunt down vocalist Dylan Walker for an interesting discussion of where the band's been, where they are now, and where they may be going in the future.

Cân Bardd

Influenced by bands such as Caladan Brood, Elderwind, Saor and Gallowbraid, Cân Bardd was founded in 2016 as a one-man project by then 18 year old Malo Civelli from Switzerland, with the purpose of creating an outlet for his feelings and ideas that would be at once heavy and aggressive, yet also melodic and atmospheric.
