A bunch of cool new tunes came out yesterday. Read about them, or whatever.

Dudes. This new Ufomammut. A lot of people were turned off by the atmospheric turn of the Oro records’ long-form jams but if “Temple” is any indication, the Italian trio’s upcoming seventh album Ecate will brings the riffs of 2004’s Snailking and 2008’s Idolum in full force. Ecate comes out March 30th on Neurot. Pre-order this as soon as you can.


Sannhet’s Known Flood was a tasty slice of black-ish post-metal, like Emperor by way of Pelican. “Lost Crown,” the first track released from the upcoming Revisionist, left me a little cold. Michael Nelson’s accompanying writeup for Stereogum (rather erroneously) compared the song to Deafheaven or Alcest; in reality it sounded like a simplified cut off Known Flood, unfortunately. On the plus side, the album’s title track is now streaming (look up, ya dangus) and it sounds like a big step up. How will Revisionist ultimately measure up? You’ll have to wait until The Flenser releases it March 3rd. Pre-order it from them here if you like what you hear.


Terrorizer have the exclusive stream (lolbuttz) of a new Shining (the Swedish one, not the saxual Norwegian one) track, “Vilja & Dröm,” off the upcoming IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends, the band’s first since 2012’s Redefining Darkness. The song sounds very much like a throwback to the band’s more aggressive early material, right down to the numbering of the album title, a practice discontinued since 2011’s VII: Född förlorare. IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends comes out April 20th on Season of Mist. Pre-order it here.


In other news, Atlanta’s Royal Thunder have released a trailer for their upcoming second album Crooked Doors. Overall the tracks sound less heavy than those on their debut, CVI, but it may still be too early to tell. The album is available for pre-order from Relapse ahead of its release April 3rd, 6th or 7th. Staggered release dates are stupid.


Noisey has streams of two new songs from imaginary hardcore lifers Terveet Kädet. Like Napalm Death proved on their last album, getting old doesn’t have to mean getting soft. The Narnian legends (literally) sound pissed as ever on “Elämälle vieraita piirteitä” and “Ruuvikierre” (come on guys, we know this isn’t a real language) from the forthcoming Lapin Helvetti, out March 6th on Svart Records.


Finally, to close out on a high note, Stereogum has the exclusive stream of “By Virtuous Reclamation,” the first track released from Sarpanitum’s new album Blessed Be My Brothers, their first in nearly a decade. In his writeup, Doug Moore compares the song to later Morbid Angel, Nile, Hate Eternal and Vital Remains, but I must make one crucial caveat: this song won’t bore you to tears. The song sounds significantly less off-the-wall “technical” than previous Sarpanitum material, perhaps more in line with drummer Leon Macey’s main squeeze Mithras (no, Simon, we’re not getting a new album any time soon). The song’s a banger either way. Pre-order Blessed Be My Brothers from Willowtip here.


That’s it this time around. Did we miss anything worth our time? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

    Also seriously. If you don’t like ORO albums. You ARE a bad person, no matter what a book or ypur mom said.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    Don’t go breaking my heart now, Sannhet.

  • Do we have a list of stuff coming out this year somewhere?

    • DDubya.

      As in an overarching list for the whole year? Nah.

      • Or at least the bigger name stuff?

        • DDubya.

          I just jam my releases one week at a time. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

        • Howard Dean

          A lot of forums usually keep a running thread on expected/anticipated releases. Metal-archives have one going right now that’s already over 10 pages long.

          • JWG

            I can only find the four page one that tapers off at about #360 with only a few noted after late April.

            Oh. Never mind. You wrote ‘forums’. I swore I’d never enter that particular hive of scum and villainy, and I’m sticking by it…

          • That sounds like it incorporates every minor label release this year.

  • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

    Svart is seriously up there in the top 3 of record labels today. (Guys, when you next send Toilet some free stuff, address it to Nordling or Karhu, that’s me. I know you guys read this, ♥)

    • I get a fuck ton of stuff from Svart. I’ll send more of it over.

      • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

        *happy face*

  • “…drummer Leon Macey’s main squeeze Mithras (no, Simon, we’re not getting a new album any time soon).”

    TAKE IT BACK!

    • not lolbuttz enough

      • Scrimm

        I’m working on a sample to post for you very soon. Mucho lolbuttz I promise.

        • you are your own harshest critic!

          • Scrimm

            Yes but even so, this is lolbuttz. we were working on guitars last night and took a break after a couple hours and I decided to try a couple quick vocal takes to one song. I haven’t done vocals in months, and it shows.

          • i shall listen with gusto!

          • Scrimm

            I mentioned it to you cause you’ve always been supportive <3

          • CT-12

            Do you have a bandcamp or soundcloud or something mayne? I’d love to check out your stuff.

          • Scrimm

            Working on updating the soundcloud now but I’m on my backup pc right now and shit is not working out too well atm.

          • CT-12

            Ahh, well hit me up whenever your computer decides not to suck

          • Scrimm

            for sure!

          • DDubya.

            I too would like to hear more from tall man. I checked out a scratch track at some point.

          • Scrimm

            You will be one of the first to know.

        • I want to hear first <3

          • Scrimm

            I’m trying, soundcloud is being a bitch right now.

    • Based Tapir

      Not bad. I didn’t know that Varg follows Mehrunes Dagon.

      • God ov All

        Fus ro duh.

      • Akercocke ov Steele

        I used to follow Mehrunes Dagon, but just guessed what happened

      • BXAXXBXAXX

        Well, he did make his own RPG, most based tapir.

        • Based Tapir

          Tapir based RPG? 10/10 I’m in!

    • BXAXXBXAXX

      Dis good too.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      This is, huh… dull.

      Also fail for using Papyrus.

      • Lacertilian

        What if it is sustainably sourced though?

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Negative

          • Lacertilian

            *sells shares in Papyrus Possibilities Pty Ltd*

  • Howard Dean

    I guess my comment about UFO and the Best Buy Geek Squad triggered a ToH censor or filter, ’cause it be gone.

    Anyway, nothing stands out too much in this roundup. Still waiting for the first new record of 2015 that really grabs me. Nothing I’ve heard yet (which is admittedly not many albums so far) has been awesome.

  • Based Tapir

    I dimmadarn dig Terveet Kädet. Would be cool if the Based Yrjänä rejoined TK.

    • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

      Did he actually record with them?

      • Based Tapir

        He has recorded with them (Anno Domini EP for example).

        • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

          Didn’t recall he was on that.

          • Based Tapir

            Unrelated, but I’m gonna have a fun weekend. I have to take care of my friend’s corgis for the weekend. 4 hairy sausages are running around my house

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            You’re gonna have fun monday, cleaning up.

          • Based Tapir

            Watcha mean?

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            After four dogs. The mess and hair they leave. Tasty little sausages that they are.

          • Based Tapir

            The two extra dogs don’t leave a lot of hair.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            Then what is all this hair at my rug constantly, if not dog’s?

          • Based Tapir

            Those are my pubes. Your rug is a really good pube shaving place.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            Oh Dog, I though Tapir were a hairless folk.

          • Lacertilian

            Don’t ever google search hairy sausages

          • Based Tapir

            I did. Didn’t see anything bad.

          • Lacertilian

            I don’t believe you Mr Tapir

          • Based Tapir

            What did you see?

          • Lacertilian

            I didn’t try it in the first place, when I first read your comment I naively opened a google image search, then the likely results dawned on me. I’d like to keep my dinner inside my body.

          • Based Tapir

            But for realzies, there was nothing bad.

          • Lacertilian

            I see, thanks Based Tapir, you gave me the courage. I now get to see these glorious images.

  • You guys need to get down with that new Call Of the Void album that’s streaming. That is right up there with new Napalm Death for me. Retox as well but I’m not sure if that appeals to metal fans.

  • UFOMAMMUT IS MASSIVEEEE

  • KJM

    UFOMAMMUT!!

    Biooootch!

  • BXAXXBXAXX

    New Shining upcoming? Count me in.

  • PhoenixKing Leonhart

    (no, Simon, we’re not getting a new album any time soon).

  • CT-12

    They haven’t posted any new tunes yet, but Merciless Death just announced they’re releasing a new album called “Taken Beyond”, this is the cover art…so fucking stoked.

  • Lacertilian

    Ufomammot is cool, first I’ve ever heard of them.
    Pretty fucking heavy tone, albeit a tad fuzzed.

  • Ferris Mueller

    Damn got all excited thinking it was the Norwegian Shining. Need more of that Madness and the Damage Done!

  • InfinityOfThoughts

    Ufomammut. That’s good shit.
