Today in news you can use, we’ve got new music, rumors, and blind conjecture!

Ole Børud 0f Extol is starting a progressive death metal band called Fleshkiller. Aside from the fact that “Fleshkiller” is a siqqq band name, we have zero additional information. Stay up to date with Fleshkiller here.

Black Crown Initiate, Revocation, and Vale of Pnath have all finished tracking their latest records. Want more info? Tough titties!

Nucleus will release their debut full-length on April 15th via the very excellent Unspeakable Axe. Fans of crunchy mid-tempo death metal, check out the first track released for Sentient below.

Toilet ov Hell writer Celtic Frosty welcomed his first child to the world. Unfortunately, that child has yet to drop a demo of raw Lovecraft-inspired black metal. Tough break, Frosty.

Finally, here’s something to be excited about: Demolition Hammer have added a photo to their Facebook page. What does it mean? Possibly nothing! But, also possibly something! We will be sure to keep you updated with the latest cryptic photography from under-appreciated early 90s thrash bands.

Did anything else happen in the world of metal? Let us know below!

  • New Helion Prime dropped late last night/early this morning. Nice power metal from California

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xwi5XywgbKs

    • This is fun, Rand.

    • Capra Hircus Hubertus

      Well it has Cyborg dinosaurs so it must be good.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Power metal? DOWNVOTE

      • Guess that that t-rex’s teeth are made out of?

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          My guess is terrible music.

          • Poser slaying steel

          • Only Noble Beast is real.

          • Bruh you think Fallujah is good

          • Mhm and you think manowar is good. It seems we are at an impasse. Let us settle our differences and partake in jolly good cooperation.

          • OR SETTLE OUR DIFFERENCES IN A BITTER BATTLE TO THE DEATH. ONLY THE TRVEST STEEL WALKS HOME ALIVE THIS DAY

          • CyberneticOrganism

            No sword-slappin’

          • Dubs

            Not even just a little slap and pickle?

          • OKAY FINE CHALLENGE ACCEPTED MEET IN THE INTERROGATION ROOM WHERE I PROMISE THERE ARE NO BOOBY TRAPS. oh that’s right nvm I have to do productive things today. Productive things <<<<<<<<<

          • TFW someone still says booby traps

          • Dubs

            Booty traps

          • Also what some people call my face

            wait

          • Oh sorry, titty traps.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Coochy traps.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Manowar played here last/this week. 500€ for a VIP ticket, 80€ for normal. Small venue, that’s a shit ton of cash. Helloween played same for 23€ tickets on the same week.

            VIP included a professional-taken photo with the band (not your equipment, if you had camera in the show, you were thrown out) and a look at the stage before the curtain were opened, so watch roadies do their work, a laminated pass, get in early and 25% discount on merchandise.

            No speaks, no sing-alongs, all bckg.vox came from the tape.

            Other Bands Play, Manowar Bills.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Damn, for that much money, they should at least give you one of their used loin cloths after the show.

          • Dubs

            Manowar > Noble Beast

          • I think it’s healthy to make sure all your friends and their bands know that Manowar is still better than them

          • Dubs

            You’re usually wrong, but not this time. Manowar > Fallujah.

          • That last one. Omg. This is amazing

          • KILL WITH POWER, WARRIOR

          • Jeb> you

          • Dubs

            Poor Jeb

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            You both have hideously horrible taste in music.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Fucking plebs.

    • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

      Well, at least it’s not anime

      • I found the worst image looking for a scene from Gundam this weekend. Saving for when I really need to ruin y’alls day

        • I get happy when you post something good, then I fell sad when you go with your weeby thingys.

          • I don’t know which I care about more: anime, or keeping link from being sad 🙁

    • tigeraid

      Best fucking cover of the year so far.

      HAIL.

    • named after a planet from the Riddick universe? count me in.

    • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime
    • ULTRA RARE BLACKBEARD

      female vocalist that isnt Simone Simmons<<<<

    • I have checked it out. Its a thing about which I would say I can dig this thing.

  • Newest song from Pete Helmkamp’s (Angelcorpse, Order From Chaos, and Revenge) solo project ABHOMINE. Album will slay. Releases April 29, 2016

    https://hellsheadbangers.bandcamp.com/album/larvae-offal-swine

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Nice hearing Helmkamp’s vocals again. So mean. Song rips too.

      • Indeed, new Angelcorpse would be an extra bonus as well.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Now you’re gettin’ greedy bro.

          • Dubs

            Still waiting on new Dark Angel

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Me too.

          • Sin till death.

  • D. Lee

    I hope the Next Revocation continues in the path of Deathless. Huge step up from S/T.

    • S/T is imo their weakest album.

      • D. Lee

        I agree. However “The Hive” is probably my favorite Revo song

        • I don’t want to choose a favorite Revo song thats like torture. Cradle Robber probably though. Which is also the first song I ever heard by them.

          • Vladimir Poutine

            That might be my favorite as well, though the last two numbers on “Deathless” might give it a run for its money.

          • mmm, Chaos of Forms >>>>>>

  • Scrimm

    Interested in this Fleshkiller.

  • Also, this new Hostium album is the best shit I’ve heard this year. Fucking flawless.

    https://ironboneheadproductions.bandcamp.com/album/hostium-the-bloodwine-of-satan

    • CyberneticOrganism

      The Cheerwine of Satan

      • SOMEONE KNOWS CHEERWINE

        • Cheers!

        • D. Lee

          I miss Cheerwine. I had a buddy in basic training that insisted I must try it, then had his family bring me some at graduation. now that I’m out I’ve been deprived since

          • Waynecro

            Sometimes BevMo has Cheerwine. I got it once when I was living in Northern California. And birch beer. Man, I love birch beer.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          The Fruit-Infused Strawberry Lemon Iced Tea of Satan

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Hahaha, that interview was the cunt’s meow.

          • Haha, yep. I love that they hate the album artwork. No fucks given.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, that was great to hear. Fuck everything.

          • “The offering of human flesh & blood to the glory of Satan.” Was the answer to two of the questions too. Perfect.

            EDIT: Looking forward to those splits! Especially that one with Nuclearhammer.

        • /cringe

    • yup this has been in the wishlist for a while.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Dig the drum sound and overall production, but not feeling the vocals.

      • Vocals are probably the least exciting thing. I can agree with that. Still, no complaints from me. Good riffs, drumming, and songs. No bullshit here, just evil and raw.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Agreed. Just finished Bloodwine Chalice. Killer old school Norwegian vibe.

          • Very much so! Certain sections are straight up Darkthrone and Mayhem worship.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, and it’s giving me a big ass evil grin. This is killer so far!

          • Awesome man!!! Enjoy.

    • ULTRA RARE BLACKBEARD

      i saw this yesterday and didnt have time to check it out

  • Stoked with this Fleshkiller project.

    I’m pretty excited with this new Spiritual Beggars single of the upcoming album. I repeated the shit out of it since last week. Will be released in March <3 Can't wait!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhl5aEW4rVs

    And, Frosty: congratulations on your baby boy!

  • Boss the Ross

    Congrats Frosty!

    DEMOLITION HAMMER!

    • more beer

      I am not really getting my hopes up on a Demolition Hammer reunion. There has been bad blood between them for a long time. Derek and Steve are only half of the band. Where is James in all of this? Vinny passed away 20 years ago.I am friends with the guy who runs the public reunion page I am going to text him later and find out what is really going on.

      • Boss the Ross

        Damn, well, keep us in the loop.

        • more beer

          When I know I will let you know.

          • Rob M

            If its not happening, James may well be the only holdout, or they might just play without him. Steve and Derek were at MDF last year hanging out with Alex while he played with Solstice

  • That Nucleus is tasty af. Kinda reminds me of blood incantation

    • Boss the Ross

      Mmmm, it is quite tasty. Like a nice Porter.

  • IronLawnmower

    MFW possibility of new demolition hammer

  • Hicks Kinison – Shane Embury from Napalm Death’s 1,000th side project.

  • i saw Hail, Caesar! this weekend, and realized that @joethrashnkill:disqus may be the Coen Brothers of the metal community. (oh, and the movie was just wonderful)

    • Coen bros >>>>>>>>>
      Thrashnkill <<<<<<<<<

    • George Clooney & Jonah Hill <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Justifiable homicide.

      • there might have been a time when i agreed with this statement, but both have proven themselves in enough quality roles. i can’t judge an actor by the roles that casting directors tend to put them in (I.E. Jonan Hill frequently cast as an annoying butthole).
        so a gentlemen’s disagreement we shall have.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Clooney and Hill in quality roles?
          HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA
          Another early Joke of the Year contender from McNutty.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Up In The Air was great, as was Ocean’s 11/12, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, and Solaris. Outside of that I can’t name any good Clooney movies.
            Good Night And Good Luck bored the fuck out of me, Men Who Stare At Goats was bland overall, and I almost walked out of Gravity when I saw it in theaters.

            Jonah Hill should’ve stopped acting after Superbad.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Your taste in movies has already been confirmed to be total shite.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Sorry I offended your immortal love of Jonah Hill. Need help pulling your beard out of his zipper?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            I’m talkin’ ’bout you liking Clooney movies, weebnuts.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            There’s a few good ones, and some definite stinkers (like Gravity, the biggest borefest of 2014). He’s still a raging douche though. That we can agree on?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            No good ones.

          • and you haven’t even touched on how charming and handsome he is

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime
  • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

    Delain’s new one drops on Friday.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmo06CrXP4M

    • Wow. They finally moved to Nightwishcore. Is catchy, but I prefer their first album 🙂

      • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

        Same. This isn’t bad, but it doesn’t have the oomph of their first one. I think it’s a curse for every female symphonic metal band to eventually go Nightwishcore at some point (except for Ellis, who broke up before that could happen, even though I kinda felt it coming)

        • I think it’s inevitable.

          I still see Xandria as a good band in those records with Lisa, then they switched to soprano Nightwishcore. It was mostly a ripoff. At least with Lisa they had a more distinct style, based on old Gothic Metal, but having a more pop edge and using eastern experiments.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            And once those bands sign to Napalm, the Nightwishcore is already happening (Amberian Dawn, Delain, Xandria).
            I got Persona’s debut a week ago. That’s the first female symphonic metal I’ve bought in years.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      *frrrrp* The fuck, bro?

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      2/10

    • CyberneticOrganism

      *buuuuuuuurrrrppp*

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Fuck, this is bad. Sounds like Coldplay.

      • ¡Jajajajajaja!

      • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

        More manly than Coldplay though.

    • So YOU’RE the guy that’s keeping Napalm Records in business. Huh.

      • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

        Gah, nope, not after Coal Chamber (didn’t you mention being a fan of their’s?), Kontrust and various other shit signings! Now, if they kept up with promoting stuff like Solstifur and Hamferð more, I’d be back on their wagon.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Solstifur? If you meant Solstafir, they’re not on Napalm.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            My goof, I thought they were for a little while. I’m probably thinking of Skálmöld.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Hamferð is not on Napalm either.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            I read something about them being in talks with them about a deal with Napalm a little while back. Looking at their Wikipedia, though, they apparently are kinda sorta on Nuclear Blast since they won the Wacken Metal Battle.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        I liek Delain.

      • JWEG

        Someone has to, or all the bands would be free to muck up other labels.

        Not that much worse can be done to Earache or Century Media…

        • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

          Last I read, Sony bought CM, which is most likely either the death of CM or it turning into the next Roadrunner.
          I worked for Van Richter Records for a short little while, and it was only a few months later after Universal bought them that the label completely died (as if there was much to kill off). From what I can tell, they pretty much bought it for a tax write off, which is often what happens when majors buy minors like CM.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    • 5/7

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      The Life of Joe

    • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

      The Kanye West story has gotten weirder and weirder the last couple of days, on top of an album that looks like it’s slapped together, and Kim Kardashian picking the model who’s ass is going to be on the front. $53 million in debt, and now he’s asking Mark Zuckerberg for money on Twitter.

    • IronLawnmower

      What is this meme I don’t understand I’m young and out of touch

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    The Celtic Frosty’s child black demo bit was pretty funny.

    • Super Nintendo Chalmers

      It’ll sound like Myrkur.

  • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

    Oh, and new Omnium Gatherum and The Infernal Sea drops this Friday!

          BAN THIS MAN!

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    On Extol/Fleshkiller:

    “Hi everyone! It´s been awfully quiet from the Extol camp lately. We know many of you are eager to know what´s going on and when to expect something new from Extol. Due to other projects and obligations it´s gonna take a good while before we can start working on new material. That said, we are very happy to announce that there are two very exciting Extol related projects in the works! Ole Børud continues his journey exploring the progressive sides of death metal with his brand new project Fleshkiller. Reuniting with his former band mate Peter Dalbakk from their early 90´s melodic death metal act Schaliach, this project will definitely be one to check out! Head over to facebook.com/fleshkillerofficial and follow the action from there!”

    “The other project will be revealed very soon so stay tuned… We´d like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your support over that last years! We truly appreciate it!”

    • Owlswald

      What the hell happened to the supposed documentary Extol was releasing?

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Uh, I don’t know. I think the interview I scooped this from actually mentioned it, but I don’t recall what they said.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Anaal Nathrakh working on a new album
    Periphery working on a new album
    SFU finished a new album.
    Suicide Silence recording a new album.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      So in other words: except for Anaal Nathrakh, a lot of bad news.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Pretty much yeah.

      • Anaal Nathrakh <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          You accidentally pointed your arrows in the wrong direction.

          • No I didn’t.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            You make me sad, sir Knight.

          • Sorry. Can’t stand that band and their production.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Not every black metal band has to be raw, lo-fi and filthy. *jumps in the trench*

          • I didn’t say they had to be.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            Lol, I know, just messin’ with ya, though I can’t recall you ever mentioning liking anything with (for lack of a better term) glitzy high end production, as far as black metal goes.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I do enjoy the raw and lo-fi black metal, but sometimes I feel a lot of bands playing that style tend to sound the same. I like a lot of stuff from the first wave and the second Scandinavian wave of BM, but I also enjoy a lot of the newer style BM bands. Bands such as Wolves in the Throne Room, Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord, Altar of Plagues, Drudkh, Shining (the Swedish one) and even Deafheaven have all done things with the genre that come across as interesting to my ears. I’m probably committing heresy against “real BM” including a bunch of “hipster BM bands” in my collection, but that’s just the way I feel about it.

          • Hot Throbbin’ Bio Slime

            I like some of the lo-fi stuff, but I’m mostly a sucker for the more symphonic and hi-fi stuff.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            When it comes to the symphonic stuff I like Emperor’s first two and to some extent Dimmu Borgir’s Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, but that’s pretty much it. I’m not really into all that much symphonic stuff in general.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Well I guess I can see that. Especially the production on the later albums.

          • (electrical components were used in the recording process and some of the album covers have colors)

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          I’m not a hardcore fan, but they’re a solid band in my opinion. If you’ve heard one album, I feel you kinda heard it all though.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          Excuse me would you like to step outside

    • Fuck yes!

      Uh…

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Shane Embury, AA “AK” Keurno of Brujeria, Roel Klomp, formerly of Born From Pain and Sofia Magalhaes formed a supergroup/band by the name o’ Hicks Kinison.

  • CT-12

    Don’t know if this has already been mentioned, but In the Woods… will be releasing a new album due out sometime this year on Debemur Morti entitled “Pure”. DM will also be reissuing all of their past full-length albums. More info in the link. http://www.debemur-morti.com/en/content/339-in-the-woods-reissues

    • I am either psyched for new ItW… or terrified that it will fall far short of past grandeur.

      Somebody please tell me how to feel.

      • CT-12

        I was just fucking pumped to hear that they were reissuing their old stuff, but now doubly excited to hear about a new album. I always see a band making a new album as a good thing, because even if it sucks, I’m not left wondering “what if?”

        • Yeah, I’m just worried about the new singer. Jan Transit’s vocals were the highlight for me . . .

        • Also, even though I already own them I will probably shell out some dollars for the reissues–like the sucker I am.

          • CT-12

            There’s a vinyl and CD box set, both have beautiful packaging. I’d really like to get something physical instead of just the MP3’s, but man, I don’t want to wait around for it to get to my door.

      • Owlswald

        I absolutely loved their Live at the Calendonian Hall album but the others fell short for me. They seemed to speed up many of the songs on that live album which made them totally kill.

        • Hmmm…your feelings are not my feelings. :/
