Two news posts in one week? I’m either out of my mind, or there have been important happenings since Tuesday. You decide.

Nunslaughter‘s Jim Konya has passed. RIP.


Sorry to bum you out with the first bit of news, but it seemed the most important update. It’s always terrible to see a member of the community go. But after you’re done mourning, might I suggest you do some thrashing! Remember on Tuesday when I said that balls-out-blasting thrashers Nylithia had finally finished recording Hyperthrash? They’ve since released not one but two new tracks in addition to the single track on their Bandcamp page. You can stream “Whips & Chainz” here courtesy of Metalsucks. Additionally, you can check out “BLÜDWOLVES” below courtesy of No Clean Singing. Both of these songs show a maturation of the meteor shower thrash assault on older Nylithia tracks. Consider my taint thoroughly wrecked.


Remember when Leif gave Horrendous‘s new album Anareta a 5/5? Remember how jealous you were that he had heard the whole thing? Well, you can now rock out to three full tracks from the album. “Acolytes” and “Sum of All Failures” are both shining pinnacles of death metal excellence, but the standout track here is “Ozymandias”. That triumphant ending is majestic as all hell. Art thou bored?


I absolutely adored Monster Magnet‘s re-imagined album Milking the Stars. Apparently the band found that revisiting older material was a recipe for greatness, because now they’ve taken the same approach to classic album Mastermind. The aptly titled Mastermind Redux is streaming in full at some Finnish blog (you can tell by the preposterous number of extraneous vowels), and I have to say, this re-imagining is rocking, but not quite as much as Milking the Stars. What do you think?


My main bear squeeze Leif pointed out that Phil Anselmo has partnered with “supergroup” Child Bite to release a new cover of Celtic Frost‘s “The Usurper”. If you like Phil Anselmo, Municipal WasteEvoken, or Persekutor, you might like this. If you don’t like Anselmo’s vocals, you probably won’t like this. Stream it over at Decibel courtesy of Housecore. If you hate it, blame the bear with the mustache. Or the other one. I’m okay with the other one being a scapebear.


Here are some more quick news bites to give you your fix, you metal news junkie.

  • Beloved Canadian weirdo(s) Vod have revealed the artwork and theme for next album Popol Wuj. It’s based on the Mayan Creation myth, and you stream two demos now!
  • Joe is rill sad hardcore heroes Discourse are calling it quits. If you haven’t, do some spinkicks in memoriam while jamming Sanity Decays.
  • Son ov Wolf/Roshin (jeeze, make up your mind) tipped me off to a new track made by Sun Kil Moon and Jesu. It… sounds like Americana. If that’s your bag, check it out.
  • Skronkodiles rejoice! Despite unleashing an unstoppable hellbeast of an album just this year, Imperial Triumphant is already working on a new release. We’ll keep you updated.
  • Spoopy ghost-men Ghoul wrote a new song for Image Comics. Stream “Humans till Deth” here.
  • Everthrone have a new music video out if you for some reason care about music videos in 2015.

Stay on that grind, friends. You know what good is.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My aunt saw them once. She said two people were having sex on a table during their set.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Apparently they knew Jim Konya as Skinny had a project with him before the band formed. They gave a tribute to him on Facebook.

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

            MUSHROOMHEAD BEEN BIG IN CLEVELAND ROCK SCENE FOR 20 + YEAR!!!!!! THEM HAVE SHIT TON OV SIDE BANDS TOO!!!!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I did know about some of their side projects but not much about stuff before they formed. Did you hear Waylon left?

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

  • Hubert

    that Nylithia track is bonkers, I digs it.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    I like Cobras And Fire, but I think Last Patrol was better than Mastermind so a reworking of MM is going to have a hard time topping reworking if LP, as even though they are “new” songs, they are based on the old ones.

  • An album I forgot about this year that should not have be forgotten about. Enjoy, or don’t.

  • I’m not usually a fan of thrash metal, but dat Hyperthrash is something else!

    • Stanley

      Not a fan of Thrash Metal? That’s preposterous!

      • Well done.

      • Vote for Jeb

        And boom goes the dynamite.

      • You’re preposterous.

  • Stanley

    I have to remember to use “preposterous” more often.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      “utter codswallop” is a great alternative to “total bullshit”.

      • Stanley

        Codswallop is frequently pulled from my lexicon and is always combined with utter. A match made in heaven.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I use the words Garish and Ostentatious a lot.

          • Vote for Jeb

            You’re starting to get far too obstreperous.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            That’s a good addition to my vocabulary. Manifold thanks, my good sir.

    • Stanley
      • You back in the country yet, buddy?

        GL

        • Stanley

          Yep. Got back Saturday and now I’m wide awake and caught up.

          • NICE. I bet the lag was…. monsteriously preposterous!

          • Stanley

            Yep. It has it’s positives though. Like getting up really early and running in the dark until the sun comes up. I’ve seen a few sunrises this week. Beautiful.

          • Nice! I have run twice this week. I am proud. That is twice more than I have run all year. But, it is always at dusk

  • Guppusmaximus

    Couldn’t stand Monster Magnet the first time around…. Nothing’s changed.

  • Stanley

    Nylithia sounds like Bloodshot Dawn.

    • Vote for Jeb

      Since Bloodshot Dawn is a tech death band, I’m assuming this is a bad thing? I’ve heard some other thrash purists say they don’t like Nylithia.

      • Wow, just gave it a listen. Drums sound preposterous.

      • Stanley

        There’s some riffs but the production is not my thing. Neither are the tunes come to think of it.

        • Vote for Jeb
          • I’m sure that’s what you tell the misses all the time.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Every other sentence. “Honey, did you check the mail? I WILL TAKE WHAT IS MINE WITH FIRE AND BLOOD. How was your day?”

          • I thought so 😉

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            “And shut the hell up about my damned eyebrows!!”

          • Who be talkin shit about Khaleesi?

          • Vote for Jeb

            Well, the Sons of the Harpy, for one.

          • That’s a mistake.

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            I love her like pizza, but those damned eyebrows…

      • Stanley

        I never really thought of Bloodshot Dawn as tech. I think they are more thrashy/melodeath with a little tech thrown in just because they are such good players. And they have songs too, where as Tech Death bands don’t.

        • Vote for Jeb

          Ah yes, you are correct.

        • Vote for Jeb

          Stanley, since I’ve disappointed you here, allow me to make it up to you by saying Exercises in Futility I is one of my favorite songs of the year.

          • Stanley

            Disappointed? Not me. That is a feeling that I do not posses in my being. The riff at 3:25 in I is magical. The whole record is perfect and every time I play it, it’s front to back. If I had to pick a current favorite though, it would be IV. Exercises in Futility is superior to everything else that I have heard this year.

          • Vote for Jeb

            I like IV quite a bit, probably more than V! I had the album on repeat in my car for a week or so, then sent some time with Kriegsmaschine and some other stuff.

          • Stanley

            I would have guessed that III or V would be your favorites. I’m surprised you went for I.

          • Vote for Jeb

            I’m not as much of a riff guy, but like you said, the riff at 3:25 (well really it’s as much the backing riff and the drums as the main riff) creates such a powerful mood. I’m drawn to songs that take you on a journey, and that part of the song took me to dark, barren places.

          • Stanley

            Yep, it’s the rhythm riff which holds the power, but add in the layers and boosh!

          • Stanley

            And talking of barren places, the lyrics to I are grim AF.

          • Vote for Jeb

            It’s all just a human garbage dump, Stan.

      • Waynecro

        I don’t like most thrash, but I like what I’ve heard of Nylithia. They must be somewhat tech, because I loves me some tech.

  • 365chaosriddendays

    Seems that “Anareta” will be a top-notch Death Metal album, this song is the third masterpiece from the new album.

  • Since we have tomorrow off from work and I will be in a tree stand all day long…. you all have a great weekend! See you on Monday.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    RIP Jim Konya.

  • Stockhausen

    I want to get “skronkodile 4 lyfe” tattooed on my lower back.

    • You should get “skronkodile for lyfe” tattooed instead. And people will be like “Hey man why didn’t you just get a 4 instead of ‘for'” and you can be all like, “Because fuck you, that’s why.”
