Minneapolis post-metal stalwarts Lungs are readying the impending release of their first full-length record, As Dust Reaches The Earth. Stream the absolute banger of an opening track below, “Call to the Giants”, then preorder the CD before its June 30th release date. The song sounds just as immense as its title since, in case anyone was wondering, the giants actually do respond to their call. – HessianHunter

Just a while ago, a deathgrind patrol known as Carnalation finally dropped a new song from their upcoming EP, Ghosts, out on the 12th of this month. Carnalation has been quiet for a little too long, and hopefully Ghosts kicks some life into them tour-wise too. They’ve stated the EP will be something more than just straightforward-grinding-death which is a little backward because an EP would have been a perfect medium for that, whereas their debut album was exactly that and as an album could have used a few twists. Anyways, stream the new song below and check an older one above. This one definitely has a very different feel than the one above, but also is oddly familiar. A job well done, that is to say.

Hey you! Yes, you! Get on with it! I mean, did you know that you can listen to a new High on Fire song from their upcoming album Luminiferous? Well you can, right here. It’s called “Sunless Years” and it sounds pretty violent. Actually after “Slave The Hive” and “The Black Spot” I am starting to think HoF is mostly playing to their violent side on this album. This is not to say that they have given up on their stoner/sludge side; it’s still audible and is especially reminiscent in the way the songs feel. Nevertheless I don’t really know how to feel about this. None of the songs we’ve heard have been bad, but I’d like to hear them do their more sludge-riff-fest-kinda-thing too.

___________________________________________

Children of Bodom have parted ways with their guitarist Roope Latvala. I always enjoy saying this, but I told you so. According to rumours (treat them as such) I’ve heard he didn’t exactly have a problem keeping up with younger Alexi when it came to drinking, and he is getting in on that age thing. Plus, more importantly, Alexi stated everybody agreed Roope wasn’t 100% in it anymore. This is probably not because of the age difference but because around the time Halo of Blood-sessions started or so he said in an interview that the second guitar stuff (which he plays) is mainly uninteresting. Jokingly he added he should ask Alexi to write more interesting stuff for both guitars. My guess is, he didn’t. Anyway, this could be a good thing seeing as the newly reunited speed metal legends Stone (in here they’re legends from the times when heavy metal started to gain some notice in Finland) have more time on their hands now, and a new album suddenly doesn’t seem like an impossibility. Especially since the vocalist/bassist Janne Joutsenniemi’s schedule would seem to open up too as Herra Ylppö & Ihmiset, one of Finland’s foremost rock/pop-bands of recent times is entering a hiatus too, due to frontman Mr. Ylppö participating in the reunion of his metal band Maj Karma. Meanwhile, CoB has taken Janne Wirman’s brother Antti as their second guitarist. Although he will only play the summer gigs, the rest is open, and Alexi will play all guitar parts on their upcoming album. Interested parties may recall Antti Wirman from Warmen with his brother.

Above I have linked Stone’s best known song. It comes from their debut, after which they became progressively more technical and… well, progressive. Below is the title song of their last album and the culmination of their growth.

ADDITIONALLY

  • Dodecahedron entered studio and begun recording their new album. I have heard a wild rumour someone here actually finished their previous album. /jk I don’t think I’ve ever even tried to listen to it. /jk (or is it)
  • Johanna Warren just released a new video for “True Colors” (NSFW).
  • Skinless is streaming their new album Only The Ruthless Remain here. The album is considerably more OSDM than before and that may or may not be a good thing.
  • A new song was also released by Scythian; you can hear it here.
  • A new teaser for the song “To Mourn Job” was posted by AHAB. It’s so fast I can’t even.
  • It’s so goddamn hot I’ve begun to melt.
  • Ne Obliviscaris released a new video for “Curator“.
  • Pumpkin-Baby approved Cave of Swimmers released a new video. It’s called “The Prince Of The Power Of The Air“.
  • Myrkur is releasing an album in August. There’s a new track. I listened to it. You don’t have to. Please don’t, it blows and sucks at the same time. Or rather, it’s not as painful and bland as the EP, it’s just so. Goddamn. Average. Bland. And. Frustratingly ungood.

        LMAO! What is that from?! Looks like a Scy Fy movie.

  • The W.

    I’m really enjoying that new Skinless album. Also stoked about Dodecahedron!

  • Tyree

    Even when Relapse signs a black metal band, they fucking suck. Black Metal should just be eliminated from Relapse all together. Weapon was really the only good black metal band Relapse had in recent years and they stopped playing. Just stop trying to get on board with the black metal scene Relapse. You suck at it!

    • Void Dweller

      Yeah, it’s not really they’re forte.

      • Guacamole Jim
        • The W.

          Little known fact: pretty much everyone mispronounces forte. The correct pronunciation is actually “fort”.

          • How that would work in a conversation:
            “It’s not really my fort”
            “Well whose fort is it?”

            Counter-point: since language is alive and ever changing, people pronouncing the word as “four-tay” may have been incorrect as per the history of the word, but has it not become correct in the sense that it’s commonly accepted, understood by most English speaking people, and one of the dictionary pronunciations?

            I guess you could make the argument that English, since it’s an idiomatic language and not a phonetic language, shouldn’t shy away from the traditional pronunciation of the word “forte,” since the distinction is in the spelling, not the speaking. But English, as are all languages, is moving towards a phonetic system, since it makes it easier to learn as a second language.

            Fun fact: there are only two major idiomatic languages in the world: English and French.

            Fun fact: my nerd is showing.

            Fun fact: I’m about to listen to Naked City’s Grand Guignol. Every so often I get the urge to do so.

          • Dagon

            Is that the album that plays in Funny Games? I know this is the band.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Bingo. That’s how I learned about them.

          • Dagon

            I never gave them a go, but I know it’s them for quite a while now.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Give them a go sometime. Utter weirdness.

        • KJM

          Stannis Baratheon approves.

    • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

      Whatever happened to Century Black? I always liked the stuff they put out back in the day.

  • That Lungs song is killer. The Old Man Gloomish vocal chanting is a nice touch.

    • Dagon

      There’s a guitar lead around 4:20 something that gives it a slight NWOBHM touch that is always nice to hear in sludgish stuff like this song.

    • Howard Dean

      It’s probably boorish of me, but I will go out of my way to NOT check out a band if it’s compared to Old Man Gloom. Almost everything about that band–from their sleep-inducing music to their personalities to their sense of “humor”–rubs me the wrong way.

      • Tyree

        Yup.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        I never got around to listening to their last album. Not because I was mad – I didn’t really care about them before, I just continued to not care about them. I heard it was quite good.

        WE WILL ALWAYS TRICK YOU

        • Howard Dean

          I actually listened to their album from a few years ago (“Old”) once, and I felt like I needed a recliner about halfway through it. Sleep inducing. Shit was painful. Their whole routine/gag they pulled last year was the last straw. Zero interest.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            It’s still a little hard to imagine Bruni signing off on that.

          • Howard Dean

            I think the landscape of Profound Lore is changing, honestly. I’ve seen it a lot especially over the last year. They still have a lot of more “kvlt” black/death metal bands like Vasaeleth, Mitochondrion, Impetuous Ritual, Gevurah, Disma, Abyssal, A.M.S.G., as well as the newly signed Pissgrave, but in the last few years I’ve seen them move away from that scene to the more “post-” crowd–and the roster and marketing focus of the label has changed accordingly. Bands like Bosse-de-Nage, Castevet, Menace Ruine, Bell Witch, Old Man Gloom, Prurient, Pallbearer, Pyramids, Sumac, and Wolvhammer seem to get a lot more push from the label (likely because they have a bigger audience and sell more–I can’t fault them for that), and the label seems to be adding bands of this type at a much faster clip than the more traditional black/death metal on which sharpened their teeth.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            What happened?

          • Howard Dean

            Last year, they released their “new album” to journalists, who listened to it and wrote (mostly) favorable reviews of it. Then, a few weeks later, the band starts ridiculing these same journalists and fans on social media, because apparently the album wasn’t real (turns out it wasn’t the finished product). They got pissed because they knew some journalist would apparently leak the album, so they sent out a fake one. Then they made fun of everyone who liked it. They also wouldn’t say whether it was actually one new album or two new albums, and kept things intentionally convoluted and confusing. Everyone was very confused, and lots of journalists were (rightfully) upset at the band’s behavior (since they spent time listening to an album and writing reviews for it). Then they started this whole “we will always trick you” campaign, and laughed and made fun of fans. Pretty fucking lame if you ask me.

  • Sir Tapir the Based

    Hmmmm, new Carnalation sure sounds tasty. Not excited about a possible new Stone album, not at all.

    • That’s a paddlin’

      No love for the legends?

      • Sir Tapir the Based

        The field on which I grow my love does not have love plants for Stone. I do not like them, I do not like you, but I love Kuusumun Profeetta (has no relation to the other two, I’ve just been jammin’ them a lot recently. Hopefully we get some new material from Rättö and friends soon).

        • That’s a paddlin’

          Wasn’t Kuusumun Profeetta gonna do something special?

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Eikös se ollu se Millai muuten-tapahtuma?

          • That’s a paddlin’

            Emmie muista vaan voihan tuo olla. Hiukka oli kyllä kutina notta olisi ollu joku spessu-levykin tulossa.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Vai oli sellanen kutina perseessä
            Ps. Taas Vain Elämää täynnä paskaa. Vittu mä vihaan Vilkkumaata ja Villegallea. Also, Keinuva Lahna uusintapainos ja paituli saapuu tällä viikolla iloiselle tapiirille.

          • That’s a paddlin’

            Ei kai se Vitun Elimäki ENÄÄ JATKU!!

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Kyllä jatkuu! Rahaa ei ole vielä tarpeeksi, ystävä hyvä. Siinä on vieläpä vain kaksi albumia julkaissut Sanni töttö. Voisin jopa katsoa sitä jos siinä ois joku kiinnostava, esim. A.W. Yrjänä, Jarkko Martikainen jne.

          • That’s a paddlin’

            VilleGalle ja muut suomalaiset legendat. Sanoitukset on niin kovin syvällisisä että niistähän pystyy puhumaan vaikka tunteja. Vilkkumaakin vielä elossa, että että. Sanni on sentään ihan hybä levyllä muttei siitäkään suomalaista ikonia saa vääntämälläkään.
            HYI HELEVATTU!!

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Vilkkumaa vissiin tekemässä paluuta, joten siksi ohjelmassa. Ite en Sannia fanita ollenkaan, mutta ei sen musiikki ihan yhtä paskaa ole kuin monen muun.

          • That’s a paddlin’

            Nyt joku Röykä sinne tulkitsemaan JVG:n Pienissä Häissä. Ei paljo muuta puutu.

  • JW(E)G

    I don’t like that I was up at 6am to get to work, but I do like that it means I could virtually see the first post of the day go live. And it’s a strong one, solely by virtue of the tunes.

    Admittedly it could have entirely just been the AHAB teaser and I’d be nearly as enthusiastic anyway…

  • Beargod, I always read about Roope as a great guitar player, but didn’t cared about searching for his previous music. I’m very impressed with that Stone song, the production sounds so full!

  • not listening to Dodecahedron’s first album?

    • that’s…

          Was this honestly a real movie? Because if so, what the fuck?!

          • I watched it on Comedy Central while hungover. It’s… not good.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            I thought it’d be decent, especially since it has Rob Schneider in it, but yeah it was about as fun as getting shanked in the pee hole.

          • Lacertilian

            so it’s like pretty much every other Schneider film?

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            Silence, blasphemer! This is Rob Schneider we’re talking about!

          • Tyree

            Oh, it’s real. I’ve seen it unfortunately.

          • Howard Dean

            Goddamn. That must have been released during that period in time when they would let Adam Sandler produce anything. In those days he literally could have taken a shit in a synagogue for two hours while singing “Hava Nagila,” and the studio would have titled it “The Shitting Rabbi” and raced it to theaters. I think I installed an Adam Sandler block in my brain stem during that period of time. Any time his face came across the screen, my brain was instantly shut off so that I wouldn’t have to see that he was making another shitbag “comedy.”

          • we’re all clueless. did you know there is also a Grown Ups 2? wowwwwwwwww

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            Ever notice he always has to be a rich dude in all his movies pretty much?

          • Howard Dean

            Huh, I never actually noticed that until now, but you’re right. Billy Madison, Mr. Deeds, Spanglish, Funny People, Grown Ups, and probably others that I can’t think of. Interesting. I wonder if he is aware of it, or if he just subconsciously casts himself as the rich guy

          • he was in one good movie, Punch-Drunk Love — the only movie in which he didn’t try to be funny

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            That was the one PTA flick I didn’t really get.

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            I’ve always liked Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, but the rest just blend into the same movie.

            Look out for Joe Dirt 2….

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            No one even knows the names of his movies anymore. It’s like “can we have three tickets for the Adam Sandler movie?”, and that’s it. I mean he clearly isn’t about artistic integrity, but at least try to do something fresh and actually act different in a movie for once.

          • he’s also rich enough he could afford to take some risks, maybe even push himself a little. but nope. how does he sleep at night? On top of a pile of money with many beautiful ladies

          • The W.
          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            Jimmy McNulty™, I just realised you insulted me. [He pulls out a rifle]. Now you must die!

            Then again, if he did try that, he’d get bashed like Louis CK is currently getting bashed by his old fans. It’s a weird place to be; to be able to afford taking risks and doing something you’ve always wanted to do, yet your fans and people who helped build you up to that point dismiss it as poppycock.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            Eh, if it’s about his molestation jokes on SNL, I think people already knew what was in store with his jokes. He’s always just been a second rate wannabe George Carlin clone.

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            Nah, I’m talking more along the lines of how his show Louie is more Woody Allen-ish and artsy.

            I like a bunch of his stuff (Louis), but I don’t really see the Carlin comparison. I think he’s his own guy. He’s not political or vicious enough to be Carlin anyways. Carlin’s last few specials were just plain nasty (and I loved every minute of it).

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

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            But goddamn if he didn’t correctly predict a lot of things!

          • Lacertilian

            I don’t see the Carlin comparison either.
            Disclaimer: I love both comedians. Carlin is a legendary stand-up and Louie has an amazing show.

          • wery interesting. i thought Louie just got universal praise for his new show. however, now there’s a potential scandal to talk about, oooooooooooooooh!

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            What’s the scandal?

          • supposedly he forced another comic or two to watch him masturbate (years ago) in order to tour with him. the one potential is Jen Kirkmann.

          • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

            Wow, that is pretty low if he did that.

            I don’t understand the outrage at his molestation thing. If anyone ever listened to him on Opie and Anthony’s show, he’s said things a million times worse than that. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CJkiwXcvaA

            And this is still light compared to some of his other stuff, albeit all hilarious to me cause I’m a piece of shit.

          • ah… Patrice O’Neal, absolute genius.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            I really really tried getting into that one, but goddamn it was boring as fuck. I wish he would’ve skipped that and made another You Don’t Mess With The Zohan.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            He’s STILL in that time period, and probably will be for quite some time. As God intended it!

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            PS, he’s got his own studio, so it’s pretty much him and him alone getting those masterpieces to theaters.

          • Howard Dean

            And I’m sure he surrounds himself with nothing but Yes Men. Too bad. He needs a big dose of “that’s fucking stupid and a pile of shit” honesty.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            It is, and it’s a modern definition of high art!

        • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

          A modern masterpiece!

    • The W.

      Thanks! Been wanting to hear this.

    • Howard Dean

      This album is very strong. It’s eyeing the year end podium. But it’s been a very strong year for black metal thus far (similar to how last year was a lights out death metal year), so it’ll be interesting.

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

        I can see this and Downfall of Nur making my list. And Obsequiae.

      • Tyree

        Was it you who mentioned that Cultes des Ghoules is working on a new album?

        • Howard Dean

          Yeah. They announced a new album a few months back titled “Coven,” but it appears that they have shelved it for now. They just released a new EP titled “The Rise of Lucifer” last week on vinyl, with the CD version to be released by Under the Sign of Garazel (hopefully) soon.

      • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

        Isn’t Summoning working on a new one?

        • Howard Dean

          I’m not sure, honestly.

        • That’s a paddlin’

          It’s supposesly an EP of material that was not fully prepared for their latest album.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            Awesome! I LOVE that band!

          • That’s a paddlin’

            Me too. I really want that EP

    • Tyree

      I’ve been meaning to check this out. Heard a song, and dug it.

    • it’s wonderful. does this mean we have to start trusting The Genius’s musical recommendations?

  • Tyree

    There is a new Serpents Lair song as well on their bandcamp page. Check it out, good shit. Sick black metal from Denmark.

    https://serpentslair.bandcamp.com/

    They released a demo on Fallen Empire records last year.

    • The W.

      Yo, did you bump Prion?

      • Tyree

        I did not. I decided to catch up on Game of Thrones like a total fucking nerd last night.

        • Dagon

          Where are you right now? Show-wise, I mean.

          • beer

          • Tyree

            Caught up now. The last episode was solid.

          • Dagon

            One of the best in the series, if not the best. I think it’s tied with the wedding.

          • Tyree

            Can’t beat a bunch of rabid corpses fighting humans.

          • Did you notice Mastodon in that scene?

          • Tyree

            No. Didn’t see em. I heard they were in it though.

          • Yea same here. I may have to go back and look for them at some point.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            I am pretty partial to “The Mountain And The Viper”.

          • Herr Schmitty

            Great episode, INCREDIBLY SAD AND VIOLENT ENDING.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            See also: s1 e9

            HOLY FUCK

            I’m remembering all this shit now!

          • Dagon

            That one was awesome. I was going to mention it, too.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Holy fuck s3 e6 “The Climb” was dope as fuck too. Littlefinger’s monologue at the end?!?!

          • “Blackwater” (S2E9), directed by mah bwoy Neil Marshall

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Excellent episode.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            The end of that fight scene was fucking BRUTAL! Even scarier to think that the guy who plays The Mountain could easily crash someone’s head like a rotten grape in real life.

          • Howard Dean
          • KJM

            My man Jon Snow was ripping shit up.

          • Tyree

            Haha, yeah. He took a hell of a beaten though.

          • Howard Dean

            I think he’s in Pennsylvania. Probably at work.

          • Shit… THAT’S what I was supposed to do today

          • Herr Schmitty

            What, work? You’re working right now- here! Tell your boss you need a 5. As in 5 months of paid leave.

          • Dagon

            That’s why I sneak-edited it before the jokes came in, lol.

        • KJM

          Such a fucking good episode Sunday.

  • On The Sundae Of Life…

    That Johanna Warren song/video is giving me a serious case of feels…

  • OldMetalHead

    Watching the Ne Obliviscaris video has me jonesing to see those guys live. I don’t think I’ve ever seen two handed fret tapping on a 5-string bass.

  • Mother Shabubu III 12 BRICKS

    new Chelsea Wolfe song is dank and dark. Haven’t really followed her since
    Apokalypsis, but this is crushing stuff. Like a folk rock Godflesh or Swans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AgEkdh9TJc

  • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

    Damn, haven’t heard Stone in ages! Definitely checking out the new one from the almighty Ne Obliviscaris.

  • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

    In unrelated but horrifically tragic news, they’re remaking Big Trouble In Little China, with The Rock starring in and producing it.

    *falls to my knees and cries to the icy heavens*

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      IN HORRIBLY GREAT NEWS, FALLOUT FUCKING 4!

      • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

        Meh, outside of Audiosurf, I haven’t played any videogames in years.

        • Sir Tapir the Based

          You monster!

  • ME GORAK™

    GORAK SAAAAAD!!!!! CHILDREN OF BODOM ROOLZ!!!!! ROOPE LATVALA GOOD GUITARZ MAN!!!!!!!!

  • Children of Bodom was one of the first extreme metal bands I got into when I was discovering said genre. Interestingly enough, unlike the other bands that introduced me to the genre (Asphyx, Autopsy, Immolation, and Kreator), I no longer care for their music. Everything sounds so mediocre. The keyboards make half of it sound cheesier than the most cheese smothered power metal.

  • Kyle

    Carnalation is sick. You guys sure throw us the goods.

  • Pierre Generic

    I just clicked on the HOF link and there’s a picture of Matt actually wearing a shirt. Mind blown!
