Do you have time for music? Come on in!

Coheed And Cambria have not only premiered a new song but also have stated that this upcoming album, The Color Before The Sun, will be the band’s first studio album that shall not be a concept album. It will be released on October’s 9th day. I don’t know if I like it or not, but it reminds me of Rush even more than before, especially in the vocals.

______________

On the 25th day of August will be released Desire Will Rot, the latest album of the Canadian technical, semi-experimental grindcore outfit Fuck the Facts. Should you find yourself wandering over to their Bandcamp page you can pre-order the album for the rather cheap price of $4 CAD.  You can also listen to “Solitude” below, ta new song from the new album.

______________

It looks like we may not get new Cryptopsy music after all. The band failed to crowdfund their The Book of Suffering: Tome 1 EP by achieving only 46% of their goal. This is a pretty bad score for a band as big as Cryptopsy, and we should probably learn a lesson from this (I wish I knew what it was). You can’t help them anymore but maybe this motivational video will help you conquer the pain.

______________

Soilwork have released the title song to their upcoming album, The Ride Majestic, out on August 28th through Nuclear Blast. Look – I like Melodeath, okay, but after The Predator’s Portrait they haven’t produced much of interest to me. Truth be told, even those three first albums never ended up on the regular playlist either. This was true until Sworn To A Great Divide brought a few better songs along; ironically this was also the first album to not include the revered songwriter Peter Wichers. The Living Infinite, the second album not to feature him, pretty much proved their best, and this new song seems to continue on this good path, so as far as I am concerned he never needs to come back.

______________________________________________

Toilet favorites Black Fast have premiered a song! Not mind blowing, but in no way is it bad. It is to be listened through this link. August 7th is the day upon which Terms of Surrender will be released on eOne Music. Speaking of Black Fast, they are part of a pretty cool tour package that will also include such names as Revocation, Archspire, and Cannabis Corpse. Good for them.

  • Dagon

    Very excited for the new Fuck The Facts.

    OT: Brasil’s biggest metal/rock website (which sucks), Whiplash reposted a list by Metal Injection called “11 metal albums you have missed in 2015”. Thanks to the Toilet Ov Hell, I jammed everyone of those albums beforehand, with the exception of the tech death ones I skipped due to having blue/purple/digitalized covers.

  • Yeah, Soilwork! I will check new Wolfheart too.

    I think this is the biggest News roundup we have compiled here, Journalistbear. Keep up the good work, I’m starting to like journalist because your job ;D

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      It started to get swollen because last week nothing got run.

  • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

    “Hello all, I’m Dennis Chambers and support The Book Of Suffering.” Bahahahahaha!!!

    New Deftones is my most anticipated album this year (srs)

  • Spear

    New Fuck the Facts day is the best day. Leave no fact unfucked.

  • Note: “Kissing Candice” is playing that Juggalo festival. This is information that will come in handy later today.

      • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

        As if Victory Records couldn’t be any more of an embarrassment (outside of signing Jungle Rot).. This sounds like bro-ified WWE entrance music

    • more beer

      Why are the Crumbsuckers on that bill? I`m heading to work disgusted!

    • Howard Dean

      Joe,

      This is a picture from my Saturday. This is what I spent the night drinking. 6 beers and $45 later (bar price), I’m rethinking a potential entry into that bootleg game. Side note: Apparently this stuff is selling illegally for 300-500% markup in Boston.

      • I gotta say, that price doesn’t sound completely absurd (even though it is clearly absurd).

        • Howard Dean

          I honestly expected it to be more than $7.50 in a bar. Well worth it. I wouldn’t ever spend $20 a can or something like that for it on the black market, but the stuff is pretty damn good.

      • Stanley

        HD, please can you send me this?

      • DCLXVI

        That shit is just plain gross and this IPA tend needs to die

      • ME GORAK™

        GORAK HEAR OF “HEADY TOPPER”!!!!!!!! GORAK HEAR IT GREAT BEER!!!!!!!

  • Void Dweller

    This dude’s technique is driving me nuts. Never cared for this band anyway.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmgK0KbGV0E

    • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

      I hate that lazy half time shit when blasting. Blast with your other hand dude, don’t pussy out. Go full out blasting man.

      • Void Dweller

        Yeah I noticed that too. But his left arm is so damn stiff. It looks so uncomfortable.

        • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

          Yeah, he’s not really relaxed at all, He gets that stiff arm. I do that to when I’m blasting for a long period of time with my left hand. I’m still trying to work on my blasting technique as well. This dude is going to have some serious problems though if he does not fix his technique.

      • Guacamole Jim

        It makes sense on the hi-hat, since you can get a pretty good heavy pulse going with the half time, but on the ride?? Fuck outta here with that shit.

        • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

          Just accent it though.

    • Stanley

      B,b,b,b,but, Riffs. Not that can you hear them very well on this recording.

      • Void Dweller

        I’ve tried many times to like this band, but when Dagon’s poor man’s Abbath vocals kick in, the whole song goes to shit.

        • Stanley

          Yeah, he does the vocal fry thing and it’s not as good as Abbath, but damn those Riffs!

          • Void Dweller

            Yeah, and I love me a good riff, but those vocals can fuck off.

        • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

          I think that’s mainly my issue to with them. They were great live though.

    • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

      1:43 in. That’s how you fucking blast. Just pure chaos.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUs9AH85MN4

      • Void Dweller

        Nice.

        • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

          I used to blast like that way back when, when I really had no clue what the hell I was doing. Over the years I’ve developed better technique. But, it is fun to just one foot the shit out of those blasts and go as fast and chaotic as you possibly can; just like Mick Harris.

      • The W.

        Jesse Pintado would have turned 46 yesterday.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      That asymmetrical logo in the video is driving me nuts; although this song and its sickly neck bends are pretty cool.

  • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm, Cryptopsy can’t crowdfund another mediocre CD after the disaster that was The Unspoken King, and Flo’s constant berating of fans in interviews?

    http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/2012/12/tiniest_violin.gif

    • The W.

      You know they had an album after Unspoken King, right?

      • …and it was a very good!

      • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

        Yep. It was decent, at best.

        • The W.

          I’ll agree with that.

          • Void Dweller

            You can’t top None So Vile anyway. You really can’t.

          • The W.

            I’ll agree with that too.

          • Void Dweller

            Fair enough doc.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Personally post-NSV Cryptopsy hasn’t been very interesting, but I know s/t and the new songs on the TBOUB were a 1000 times better than Unspoken King so in that department I am a little surprised they did this poorly.

      • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

        The self titled one was decent. Decent being the key word.

    • CyberneticOrganism
      • GAH!

      • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

        One original member. Poop.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Napalm Death = No original members on side B of the debut. Not poop.

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            Still kicks ass.

            Lord Worms era was the best though.

            Edit: It all about that raw sound, and production.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Aye. He was crazy.
            But have ye heard Lord Worms current band, Rage Nucleaire?

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            Yes. I hate it.

            Production sounds like a goddamn video game or some shit. Terrible fucking sound.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Aye, it’s pretty bad.

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            It’s a shame really. I really wanted to like that band, but this sounds fucking AWFUL!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcUIv35CGsU

          • The W.

            I remember being stoked to check this out and being very unimpressed when I heard it.

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            I think there is a new album, but I didn’t even bother.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            The tune itself could be good or at least better-than-decent if it wasn’t for the sound, Worm sounds terrible too. All the good stuff is buried some dung-heap.

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            It’s definitely gets a “worst sound” award.

          • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

            LMAO remembering their keyboardist, who quickly got booted and went on a pity party/tear on how the fans betrayed her and ruined her life.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Pretty cool that Liev Schreiber joined the band

          • Lisbeth (Tyree) Salander

            He was great in Goon.

      • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

        Maybe it’s Maybeline.

  • thanks Bear God, plenty of great pleb metal news for me!

  • That Coheed & Cambria song isn’t bad, I’m interested to hear more from the new album.

    • i know they’ve been guilty of including an obvious radio biscuit on their albums, and i’m hoping that’s the case here.

      • Herr Schmitty

        I can’t fault such behavior too much these days; young me would have.

        I’m sure it’s super nice to make money while playing music 😉

        • I generally like the C&C pop songs best.

          • Herr Schmitty

            I had basically the opposite experience. I thought they were horrific until one of my buddies was like ‘You know that all the deep cuts on the albums are really great, right?’ Then I learned not to judge a band by their singles alone 😉

  • Herr Schmitty

    Deftones news = great news. The last few albums have been particularly great, basically guaranteed to be a top-5 album in 2015 for me barring some sort of Saturday Night Wrist-ian flop.

  • KJM

    Never did care for Orchid.

    • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom

      Same. And the new song is fucking awful. It sounds like a halfassed version of Pentagram.

  • KJM

    Saw C&C opening for Heaven & Hell in 2009. I suppose I get the Rush comparison, but they seemed more like watered down Maiden or Queensryche to me especially when they started playing ‘The Trooper’. No Sir, I didn’t like it.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      They seem to get a lot of Rush comparison but I’m not very familiar with their early material, only know that the vocals in this song scream GEDDY LEE!

    • ME GORAK™

      GORAK SEE THAT TOUR TWICE!!!!!! NOT REMEMBER SEE COHEED CAMBRIA?!?!?!? GORAK DRINK LOTS BEER BOTH SHOWS!!!!!!!!! GORAK LOVE DIO!!!!!!!

      • KJM

        Boston was the 2nd to last show for Ronnie. : (

        • ME GORAK™

          GORAK WAS AT LAST IN ATLANTIC CITY…

    • are you familiar with a lot of their works? they do have some fairly long, progressive songs that exemplify the Rush comparison.
      (off topic, episode 3 of Trve Detective definitely rocked, i’m in)

      • KJM

        I’ve only heard some besides what they played. The vocals grate on me and I usually don’t mind higher pitched vocals at all.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      Saw them warm up for Alice in Chains two years ago an PNJ in NJ: C&C=White Noise……while frantically running around on stage. Also dude had a double neck and I wasn’t sure why, but it looked cool.

    • pïgchop™

      Oh man – the music that might have been! Thank goodness we have what there is.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    I’m excited for the new Fear Factory.

    • Throbbing Fart Thong Of Doom
    • you truly are a time machine to my high-school self. wish i still had all my nu-metal shirts to give ya 😉

      • Kevin Nash & Friends

        Sevendust is coming to my area but they’re opening for Godsmack. I hate Godsmack.

        • that’s a good JJD…
          but look at it this way: at least you can leave after Sevendust and get a good night’s sleep!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I’ll probably end up not going because I’m not spending 46 dollars to see Sevendust and Godsmack. I don’t care how good Sevendust was last time I saw them I’m not paying 46 dollars to see just them. The only good Godsmack song is Awake and that’s only because it’s in a video game I love.

          • that’s a good point. i saw Sevendust in like…. 1998 and it was pretty rocket! not sure if they’ve been making much gud music since then…

          • Le Tapir The Based

            Sevendust? Good music?
            Rfi

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            They were good when I saw them about two years ago. They were a bright spot in the middle of a festival of shit.

  • pïgchop™

    What’s new? Dave Grohl sitting on his throne and bringing a guy on stage who held up a sign saying “It’s my birthday, can I play drums?”

    http://www.brobible.com/entertainment/article/dave-grohl-fan-drum-foo-fighters-birthday/

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      Dave is the only human being with the power of reptilian limb regeneration.

      Did he break both legs? Shiiieeet.

      • pïgchop™

        Heh heh heh…Only in that photo.

  • Hubert

    Looking forward to new TesseracT, new Monolith Deathcult and Black fast. Especially TesseracT, I’m really interested what they will do with their sound.

  • I’m going to have to disagree on the new Orchid song sucking. I thought it was great. I guess I’m not difficult to please when it comes to doom metal, though, I’ve never been able to stomach Pentagram. I’ve tried on more occasions than I can remember and I still almost fall asleep about five minutes in.

  • Nineinchneurosis

    Dude y’all got me turned on to Soilwork, danke. That song was killer.
