Burn In Hell Stream Entire New Album "Disavowal of the Creator God" Via Metal Sucks

Sydney’s metallic hardcore unit Burn In Hell are now streaming their entire second album ‘Disavowal Of The Creator God‘ ahead of the release date, this Friday, August 6th, on Reason and Rage Records

The full album is now streaming in full at Metal Sucks, who commented "Their new album, Disavowal of the Creator God, is unbelievably heavy, indescribably punishing, and exploding at the seams with animosity; it’s like the band listened to Converge, Xibalba, and Full of Hell, said “What is this weak-ass ballady shit?”, and kicked everything up twenty-five notches. This album could liquify your brain." 

If you missed it, the video for leading single "Bleach" is still playing at this location

Australian East Coast five-piece Burn In Hell first burst into the scene back in 2018 with their savage and chaotic debut LP “Humanity Plague”. Comprised of current and former members of Vice and Amends, they choose to stand up for their beliefs with lyrics that address social and political injustices crushing contemporary society and to this day this vision remains uncompromised. Drawing musical inspiration from hardcore and metal heavyweights such as Harms Way, Cult Leader and Converge, Burn In Hell have already carved out a name for themselves as one of the heaviest and most politically charged acts around. 

Vocalist Marcus Tamp comments: Growing up in the church you’re somewhat blinded and brainwashed to the true oppressive nature that comes from the governing bodies which trickles down to the local Christian communities. Over the past few decades, the majority of our countries Prime Minister have identified as Christian and have brought their Christian “values and morals” with them, further intertwining religion and state. A lot of this record focuses on the hypocrisy and disgusting postures held by the leaders of the corporate church and this country, and how we continuously build oppressive systems to further the divide making gender, queer and racial liberation almost impossible.

Suncraft - Norwegian Stoner Rockers Share New Song "Lingo Hive Mind" Via Doomed & Stoned

Uprising Norwegian stoner rockers Suncraft have just shared another track from their forthcoming debut album "Flat Earth Rider" due out on August 6 via All Good Clean Records

Titled "Lingo Hive Mind" this new track is now playing at Doomed & Stoned, who commented “Lingo Hive Mind gives you a first-listen to now) comes with a boisterous start that threw me right into the mosh of the beat, like some hapless soul swept away by the ocean’s current. It’s an aggressive, yet quite jazzy start to the song. This is followed in quick succession by verses from front man/bassist Rasmus Skage Jensen, whose vocals are both clean and gruff as the humour insists." 

"Flat Earth Rider" was produced, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem (The Good The Bad and The Zugly, Okkultokrati, Djevel, etc...) and features six unique tracks that show Suncraft combining elements from groovy stoner rock and riff-based heavy metal. 

Since late 2017, this Oslo-based quartet have played their fair share of club shows in the nooks and crannies of Norway, honing the craft of playing explosively energetic concerts. After releasing released their debut EP, "Saigon" in 2019, the live-performances abruptly ended due to Covid-19. Turning the blow of the pandemic into a positive, the boys put all their efforts into writing their debut album, "Flat Earth Rider" and as soon as the world is safe enough, Suncraft will hit the road again and bring their unique flavor of rock n’ roll to a growing audience.

Hymn Reveal Music Video For “Exit Through Fire” Via Metal Injection

Norwegian sludge metal duo Hymn, has just unleashed a music video for "Exit Through Fire", the leading single from their forthcoming second album "Breach Us", which is set for release on August 28th via Fysisk Format Records

The video created by Christian Samuelsen has premiered at Metal Injection, who commented "the band's new song "Exit Through Fire" today, which is nothing less than a sludgy crawl through razors and the ensuing anguished screams." 

 Recorded and mixed by Kim Lillestøl at Amper Tone Studios in Oslo, “Breach Us” is a gargantuan tour de force and a testament to man’s will to exert discipline and human direction to the universal powers of chaos. "Our goal at Amper Tone Studio was to set things up basically as we do on live shows." Says the band. "Facing each other, Marshall JCM 800 and Simms Watts 120 in stereo and a Ampeg 810 stack on full blast. Gibson Les Paul with 74 gauge strings and a couple of fun effect pedals and we are ready to go. We don't want to record anything that we can't perform live, but of course, we always get inspired during the recording process and “shit happens”. That is what makes this band special to us; with only two people there is always room for quick turnarounds and improvisation. We ended up recording the whole thing in about 48 hours." Pre-orders are now available at this location.

Norway's Barren Womb Stream Entire New Album “Lizard Lounge” Via Decibel Magazine

Nordic noise rock duo Barren Womb are now streaming their entire new full-length album ‘Lizard Lounge’, just one day ahead of its release tomorrow, March 22nd through Loyal Blood Records.

‘Lizard Lounge’ is now playing in full at Decibel Magazine, who commented “Lizard Lounge is being touted by the folks at Loyal Blood Records as “Quicksand meets Clutch meets Refused.” This is a decent start, but we’d implore you to not omit/forget about Melvins, Cows, Fugazi, Big Business, Rocket from the Crypt, Botch, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Torche and any number of bands from the AmRep and Gravity Records catalogues.”

Listen to ‘Lizard Lounge’ here.

“Trim the fat.” Said the band about the new album. “That was the unspoken mindset when we started writing Lizard Lounge. The resulting ten tracks are stripped of all pomp and frills, tightly focused instead around the essence of what this band is: pummelling drums, scathing guitars, deadly rhythms and strangely catchy melodies. We really left no cross unturned when digging around for these slabs of noisy weirdo rock. The title itself, part shadow government and part Hunter S. Thompson acid paranoia, reflects upon the waiting room all of us reptilian brained meat bags call home. Apathy, cancer, conspiracies, death, depression, destruction, diabetes, incels, rednecks and a sprinkling of meth – this album truly has it all.”

Norwegian Power Punk Rock Duo Hot Nuns Reveal New Song “Can’t Get Over You” Via Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Norwegian power punk rock duo Hot Nuns, featuring members of Blood Command, has recently shared another track off their forthcoming EP “Rude, Dumb & Anxious”, which is set for release this Friday, May 15th via Loyal Blood Records.

Titled “Can’t Get Over You”, this new track is now playing at Heavy Blog Is Heavy, who commented "Rude, Dumb & Anxious, is power punk goodness, full of blazing riffs, vocal harmonies, and just a whole load of fun.”

Listen to "Can't Get Over You" here.

Recorded at SpaceKraft, mixed and mastered by Simon Jackman and with artwork done by Robert Høyem, “Rude, Dumb & Anxious” features four new tracks including a cover of The Boys’ “First Time”.

The duo comments on the album. “The record is four tracks of stripped down punk rock. Its only drums, bass and our vocals. We have a rule that if we can’t play it live we can’t put in on record either. So there is no cheating here. Not trying to be pretentious, but we try to make music the same way Lars Von Trier made Dogville. No fancy extra layers needed to get the story across. The lyrics are mostly about sad losers longing for love except the title track «Rude, Dumb & Anxious» who is about people who will say whatever about stuff they don’t know just to fit in and look good.”
