Slated to drop this August, “Diaspora” is the imminent new full-length album from progressive blackened death collective Cormorant. In advance of its release, today first single and opening track “Preserved In Ash” is offered up for public feasting.

Recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Graves At Sea, Noothgrush, Brainoil) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California, the expansive four-track, sixty-one-minute offering features the band’s longest, most detail-oriented compositions to date.

“‘Preserved In Ash’ is the last song we wrote for the album,” elaborates guitarist/vocalist Matt Solis, “but as it was coming together it became clear that it fit perfectly as a lead-off track. Lyrically, it’s about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, which buried the city of Pompeii in volcanic ash. There’s a lot of psychedelic black metal and funeral doom stuff going on in this song, and Greg Wilkinson’s crushing production allowed us to establish a good balance between those two tonalities.”

PaRtY-CaNnOn just dropped a drum playthrough for the single “Soft, White, Gelatinous Body,” taken from the forthcoming EP “Perverse Party Platter.” The band’s drummer, Martin ‘Count Blastula’ Gazu, had this to say:

“SWGB was the first song we jammed for the new release. It took fucking ages to get it how we wanted. Drums on this song are Dying Fetus as shit – especially Destroy The Opposition. We tried our best to get the drums sounding as real and live as possible.

“The kick is the only triggered sound. What’s great about the drumming on SWGB is the diversity. There are fast bits with plenty of blast beats as well as groovy bits with huge slams. SWGB represents the style of drumming I love. Please enjoy it!’

New mini-album “Perverse Party Platter” will be available July 7th on Gore House Productions, with pre-orders online here.

Trauma is responsible for the classic ’80s album, “Scratch and Scream,” featuring cuts like “The Day All Hell Broke Loose” and “Lay Low.” Three decades passed before the band emerged again in support of a re-mastered edition of that debut and then delivered 2015 follow-up, “Rapture and Wrath.”

Now, staying true to that classic sound, Trauma s back with a merciless new track, “The Rage,” which was produced by guitarist Joe Fraulob. The track will be featured on an upcoming third album – check it out below!

Trauma is furthermore pleased to announce the addition of Bay Area bassist Greg Christian (ex-Testament) to the band’s line-up. “Trauma is thrilled to welcome Greg Christian to our band,” says the band in a statement. “His creative bass guitar work completes our music.”

“Having grown up in the Bay Area thrash scene, it’s a huge honor for me to play in TRAUMA,” adds Greg Christian. “After all, this was Cliff Burton’s (R.I.P.) band. Respect! Style-wise, for me, it’s a perfect fit and feels like I’m finally exactly where I’m supposed to be.”

Today you can see the new Teethgrinder video for the track “The Pain Exceeds The Fear,” taken off the band’s latest album “Nihilism.” The video was shot and directed by Joost Nevels and is available below.

Hailing from the Northern Netherlands, Teethgrinder came to be in early 2013. Former members of DrDoom and Greyline were looking to create loud, aggressivem and rigorous music – and that is exactly what the Dutch quartet became known for.

Greek occult black metal group Acherontas has signed a new deal with Agonia Records. The band returns to the label after previously departing in 2011, with the “Vamachara” album due to be re-released on vinyl this coming August 31st, along with a rare demo and a new cover made by Viktoria Polikarpova.

Acherontas is currently working on the band’s next studio album, due to be finished by February of 2018. The band commented:

“During the creation of the second part of Reptilian Unification the synaxis of Acherontas also compiled the bases and foundations for the third one. Now we work on the final touches to accomplish the utmost forms and complete the trilogy gloriously. In December we enter the studio again to record the final part, which will be revealed on the solstice of 2018. A circle of creation closes and a new epoch begins. Spirit Above Matter!”

You can try to put Destrage in a box but you will never succeed. Words such as “progressive”, “cinematic”, “mathcore”, “technical” and “groove-laden”, could be thrown at them, but really the only one you need is Destrage, for they are in a category of their own making. This has never been more true than on A Means To No End, the fourth full-length from the Milan, Italy-based 5-piece, which was released last October via Metal Blade Records. Riveting from start to finish, it leads the listener through an emotionally-charged labyrinth of complex yet catchy melody and muscle, following nobody’s rules, and it stands out as one of the truly unique releases of 2016.

For a preview of A Means To No End, Destrage has now launched a play-through video by Camilla Boro (Sandhog Music Production) for the album track “Blah Blah” (featuring guitarist Matteo Di Gioia), which can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=XuwbwNiWhcI

To purchase A Means To No End, please visit: metalblade.com/destrage

Destrage line-up:
Paolo Colavolpe – vocals
Matteo Di Gioia – guitar
Federico Paulovich – drums
Ralph Guido Salati – guitar
Gabriel Pignata – bass
