20 Buck Spin welcomes Portland, Oregon-based death metal coven Witch Vomit to the label’s ever-expanding roster of wrath, confirming the band’s “Poisoned Blood” for late June release. An advance stream of the track “Doomed In The Realm Of The Dead” has been issued today and can be heard below.

Offering four new tracks, put simply, “Poisoned Blood” is one of the most brutal recordings to come out of the Northwest in recent memory. Ranging from blasting deathgrind, foul Finnish obscurity, and liquified, cannibalistic necromancy, the riffs on this MLP bubble up like slimy green rot leaking from crypt walls.

Mastered at 45 RPM for maximum mangling, and completed with eye-splattering cover art by Matt Stikker, “Poisoned Blood” will see release through 20 Buck Spin on June 30th. The track listing is as follows:

1. Intro / Doomed In The Realm Of The Dead
2. Circle Of Blood
3. Accursed Temple Of The Great Deceiver
4. Fevers Of Torment

During the night of April 26th, 1986, a world-changing accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. A catastrophic meltdown befell Reactor No. 4, resulting in core explosions and open-air fires. Copious quantities of radioactive materials and airborne isotopes were consequently dispersed into the atmosphere and surrounding lands.

The disaster has been widely regarded as the worst accident in the history of nuclear power globally. As a result, Reactor No. 4 was destroyed and is being enclosed in a concrete and lead sarcophagus to prevent further escape of radioactivity. Large areas of Europe were affected by the accident, with the radioactive cloud spreading as far as Norway.

Moved by devastating consequences of the event, a German band called Cytotoxin pulverized the death metal world with its formation in 2010. Fast forward to today and its time for “Gammageddon.” Captured earlier this year again at Kohlekeller Studios, “Gammageddon” centers itself on the city of Pripyat. Named after the nearby Pripyat River, the city was founded on February 1970 as the ninth nuclear city — a type of closed city — in the Soviet Union, to serve the nearby Chernobyl plant.

It was officially proclaimed a city in 1979, and had grown to a population of nearly 50,000 by the time it was evacuated the day after the Chernobyl disaster. The city is now a ghost town, and “Gammageddon” serves as a soundtrack to the horrors leading to the evacuation with its unadulterated technical extremity.

“Gammageddon” will be released on CD and digital formats via Unique Leader Records on July 28th. Pre-orders will be unveiled in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out “Radiatus Generis” below.

Notes the band of the track: “You all have had almost five years to prepare for the next radioactive fallout, but you may not be ready for such an overdose of extreme metal.This is brutal… this is frightening… this is Gammageddon!”

1. Radiatus Generis
2. Chaos Cascade
3. Gammageddon
4. Chernopolis
5. Deadzone Outpist
6. Redefiniing Zenith
7. Corium Era
8. Antigensis
9. Outearther
10. Sector Zero

Austrian group Tarlung released new album “Beyond The Black Pyramid” on May 5th, 2017 via Black Bow Records. You can stream the full release below, or get your own copy at Bandcamp here. The following press release was also issued:

“Dense and suffocating, Tarlung’s music crawls along ponderously, squeezing the life out of its listeners. This kind of expression in sludge is rarely done but ends up being most satisfying.

“The riffs command the direction, as within the mire of the deafening sludge you have catchy hooks and memorable tunes. Influences from closely related genres such as death metal and even stoner doom coalesce to form their monolithic sound. Listen to one of the heaviest albums in this style and quiver under its might.”

1. It Waits In The Dark 01:50
2. Dying Of The Light 08:16
3. Mud Town 06:27
4. Kings And Graves 09:47
5. The Prime Of Your Existence 10:56
6. Resignation 04:02
7. Born Dead 09:13
8. Beyond The Black Pyramid 07:29
9. Karma 08:21

Atmospheric metal band Vials Of Wrath today reveals “Within the Grey,” which can be heard in the SoundCloud player below.

The track is taken from the forthcoming cassette re-release of “Days Without Names,” which was originally released in 2015.

This new version of “Days Without Names” will be available on May 26th, 2017.

Vials of Wrath is atmospheric music for fans of darker, ambient black metal drawing inspiration from nature, but is unique in the fact that the lyrical content is based on a Christian perspective.

The music provides an adoration for nature’s beauty, but with a contemplation of a divine creator and what our human experience reveals as we journey through life in the natural surroundings of forests, streams, and mountains.

Just days ahead of the release of a debut album, cult metal collective John Frum has now dropped a video for new song, “Wasting Subtle Body.” Check it out below. The band’s new record, “A Stirring In The Noos,” will be available for purchase and stream via Relapse Records on May 12th.

The video for “Wasting Subtle Body” was directed by Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, The Locust) and is a mind-bending depiction of a terrifying ritual with haunting visuals. Massie comments:

“One thing I was really excited about with this project was to shoot nature in a way that depicts the character’s inward journey. I didn’t want to use the weird sex and death stuff I tend to do. This project was to be the beauty of nature herself! I went way out there with my camera and tried to get my inner hippie excited about tickling chakras, absorbing energy from stones, bathing in nature’s blushing design…but all I found in mother nature was death and fucking (in macro).”

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects.
