Gnus U Can Uze

Everybody’s favorite not-really-viking-but-melodeath-metal band Amon Amarth released a video for the song “At Dawn’s First Light from their upcoming Jomsviking, the band’s first actual concept album (about a jomsviking obviously. If you don’t know what they were shame on you; no really, this shit is taught in pre-school. They are group of vikings from Jomsborg who formed an independent mercenary order from the late 900’s to early 1000’s). Amon Amarth hasn’t exactly been known to reinvent themselves, but from the three released songs (see here) I got the feeling that for the first time since their early days, AA is actually going for a different style. The band hasn’t yet announced a permanent replacement to drummer Fredrik Andersson, but for the writing and recording of Jomsviking they enlisted the help of Tobias Gustaffson (Vomitory). Continuing in the fashion set by their last few albums, Jomsviking will feature a guest appearance by Doro Pesch.


You can now listen to the first song from Moonsorrow’s upcoming Jumalten Aika. It’s a bonus track that doesn’t appear on the regular edition of the album. Also a cover of a song that was not written by the band. A cover of Rotting Christ’s “Non Serviam, to be precise. It’s a fine mixture of new and old – the song is instantly recognizable, but doesn’t sound like a stretch from Moonsorrow’s own material. Stream it below, yo.

Oh yeah, They did actually release a new song of their own making as well. It’s called “Suden Tunti,” and it is the first ever Moonsorrow song to receive a video, in 2016, and they sing about the void – what more could you want? Also remarkable for being the band’s shortest song in 10+ years. Look for Jumalten Aika on April 1st. See tour dates here.


There’s a new deathgrind outfit called Asphalt Graves, and they’re going to release their debut The New Primitive later this year (at an undisclosed date). In the meantime you can take the chance to stream “Angst and Pain” from said album below. The group is composed of capable musicians, and if the song below is any indication, as long as the blogs don’t decide to beat the supergroup horse every heckin’ time (drummer Shannon Lucas, guitarist Adam Faris, vocalist Jason Netherton and bassist Brent Purgason have played in known bands before), they have good chance to overcome the hype created by the line-up.


Behexen will be releasing their new album The Poisonous Path on May 27th. “Mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio, The Poisonous Path, the aptly named, is a raging beast brutally animated by a strong and massive production. The riffing is abrasive, the atmosphere is mephitic and the melodiesare bewitching…” Track listing and cover art below, artwork by Kristiina Lehto.

    Magrudergrind April 26th? This is, indeed, news I can use.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Definitely would be a fun show.

      • nbm02ss

        Already ordered a ticket. Can’t even see a movie these days for $10.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          10 bucks?! That’s a steal

          • nbm02ss

            That’s how I felt. FFS I’m seeing Batman v. Superman at 9AM Friday and it’s going to cost me $12, before fatboy snacks; had I waited until noon it would have cost me $16. Ridiculous.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            No doubt

          • Rob M

            “Just three more payments and these movie nachos will be mine”

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Ack, I have super important can’t miss plans the day they play in Minneapolis. With Dropdead and Yautja, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck me.

  • Sir Tapir The Based

    Behexen och Moonsorrow w00t w00t!

  • Dubs

    Clever cover image, beargod.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    Good roundup this week!
    I totally read over Amon Amarth in the TTT, thanks for the reminder.

    Also, the dude on the Behexen cover looks like he is summoning the beast on Altarage’s Nihl cover. Besides the difference in quality, they pair well.

  • I forget, is Magrudergrind a straight edge band?

    “A member of Warfist was arrested while wearing a bullet belt at a gig, for “carrying ammunition” and given a two-year suspended sentence.”

    Seriously?…unless this was actual live ammunition that is a complete crock of made up shit

    • Counterpoint: more people should be arrested for wearing bullet belts.
      *cough*MASTERLORD*cough*

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Yeah, it seems to have been a made up raid, because extreme metal must be banned and shit

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    More news: The rest of the Rock’n Derby lineup has been announced. I am now going.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      There’s only a handful that I’d be interested. The poster has a very interesting billing order.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I like Extreme, Ghost, Dokken, Megadeth, Coheed and Cambria, Sebastian Bach should be entertaining, Clutch, Lamb Of God and Collective Soul aren’t bad.

        • Sounds like there will be plenty of dads there.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            And they’ll all be very sad. Very sad dads.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Look at those sad fucks.

          • Bro, they are totally going to hug and cry when 18 and Life is played.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, and probably make out hard, because they have a special relationship. Incest is best.

          • nbm02ss

            Wincest.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            They accidentally left their Make America Great Again caps in the pick up truck.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Good choice! If I had the cash, I couldn’t get one soon enough!

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            And worn out soccer moms/former 80’s road sluts.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Woah woah woah… Clutch “isn’t bad”?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I meant that towards Collective Soul. I am a Clutch fan.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I’ll let it slide this time…

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I edited the post because my phrasing was terrible. I am excited for Clutch actually because of how high they are on the bill.

          • Spear

            CLUTCH IS ONLY OKAY!

            *ducks*

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Wait…Collective Soul is still a thing?

    • UNCLE BLACKBEARD

      CO&CA and Ghost. there. saved you three days of poop

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        You forgot Corrosion of Conformity, Extreme and Dokken.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          And you forgot Clutch again.

          • UNCLE BLACKBEARD

            i wouldnt wade thru that ocean of human filth on that day just to see clutch

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I will give that one to you. I would definitely not go to this just to see Clutch. They play shows all the time, hell I saw them twice in the same city last year.

          • If all 3 bands I liked were playing on the same day, I’d cope. Besides, I’d probably be able to leave very early.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Bingo

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Sitting through Enter Shikari or Shinedown…no band, no matter how good, is worth suffering that kind of torture.

            love this band.genuine misanthropy.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            OK, what’s top tier industrial metal for you? And I already know you’re going for the Godflesh, so toss over something a little more off the usual radar.

          • Dubs

            There isn’t much that’s good, but I’d have to say Ministry’s the Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste, Spektr, Blut Aus Nord, Stagnant Waters, AUtokrator and NKVD. You know, stuff that’s more heavy on the metal than on the techno.

            https://autokrator.bandcamp.com/releases

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Oh, gotcha. The industrial metal I grew up with goes more on the electronics, and guitar as more or less a backup. Frontline Assembly’s mid period stuff, NIN, Dink, stuff like that. So that’s what I think of when I think industrial metal, versus, say SYL.

          • Dubs

            I love NIN, but I wouldn’t ever call them metal.

          • brokensnow

            thats where it started…

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Exactly!

          • brokensnow

            one of the genres founders.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Whoopsie! :-p

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            What?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Was ist das?

          • Extreme are decent guys(Boston!!), but their music is hair metal poop.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Pornograffiti, outside of those 2 songs, is a masterpiece!

        • Rob M
      • I can dig Anthrax & Clutch as well but, other than that, whole lotta shit.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Not a Wolfmother fan?

          • I’d be good with sitting through them live, but the vocals are too White Stripes-esque for me.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY
          • The ego on this guy.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            But talent to back it up. Otherwise, not one person on Earth would sit through his shitty ‘experimental’ CDs.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I wouldn’t. Fuck this dude and Wolfmother. Who gives a shit.

          • Fantomas and 1-2 FNM tunes. Other than that, meh.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Not even Mr. Bungle?

          • Nah. I don’t tend to be a fan of that type of quirky pseudo jazz metal.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I really enjoy The Real Thing and Angel Dust though.

          • ‘gentle art of making enemies’ is the only FNM song I really like a lot.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Decent song, but I enjoy most of FNM to some extent. Except for their first two funk-metal albums with Mosley and Sol Invictus, which I thought was quite disappointing. The Real Thing and Angel Dust for me are head and shoulders above the rest.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            No love for Mosley? I jam those constantly.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I got into FNM through their Patton stuff. So I could never really get into the Mosley era of the band. Don’t necessarily hate it though, just never feel the need to give those albums another spin.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            That is understandable. The Mosley albums are way different.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Wow, that’s the first time I’ve heard someone not like them.

          • I don’t dislike them, I just don’t care.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Dude, he’s got like 78 albums he’ll be “dropping” soon with all his scatting and whatnot. I guess you don’t get art, brah. You vapid fuck.

          • My response to that is “Listen to more Bathory”.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Tyree, plz! He’s an artist!

          • Haha, goddamn it!!!

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Fuck this douche

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Wow, that’s a lot of bands!

    • “Chevy Metal”

      DERP

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Fuck this song.

        • Chevy had to be on drugs when he accepted this job. WTF

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Everyone associated with this dog shit, was.

          • Why is he lip syncing? I am so confused.

          • Because it’s shit.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Don’t know, song sucks, it all sucks.

          • You’re gonna need a nap this afternoon. You must be all tuckered out after all these excessively negative opinions about everything this morning.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Because I’m bitching about a fucking Paul Simon song? I’m awake as fuck, Joey.

          • I even like Simon & Garfunkel and I think this is crap. ‘Graceland’ was the go-to album for pretentious yuppies who wanted to seem worldly and eclectic in their musical tastes.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You can’t even compare this drivel to Simon and Garfunkel. That shit was amazing.

          • RJA

            What a perfect description of that album. It was exactly that at the time it came out! I still dig it though.

          • I worked at a corporate record chain(Strawberries) when it came out.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Adult contemporary never changes.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I dunno, I could imagine this as a slam song.

          • Shit mixed with shit. Now we’re talking.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I actually thought you liked slam. *scratches head*

          • Really?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I thought I heard you mention a few tracks here or there. Oh well.

          • I’m pretty sure not. I’ve posted some pretty brutal death metal stuff. No slam though, I can’t stand that shit.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I can take it in doses. Kinda sounds the same after a while.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Does Dying Fetus qualify as straight up slam?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Not to me, no. They’re pretty straight up death metal in my book.

          • I consider them more death metal. Definitely break downy though.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            What the fuck does that even mean?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            A band doing a slam version of this.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Oh. No.

        • nbm02ss

          Oh goddamnit, why did I hit play?!

          /kills self

          • Rob M

            Wait…you havent heard the best part. This song was considered a hit

          • nbm02ss

            “Chevy Chase? I like that guy.”

            /listens to song

            “Chevy Chase is dead to me now.”

          • This album was kind of a big deal… I just kinda assumed it was part of the musical cultural consciousness. Paul Simon recorded it with a bunch of black musicians in apartheid South Africa. Some people were mad about that, some thought it was cool.

          • RJA

            The documentary on that from the 30th anniversary of the album was fantastic I thought.

            edit: I love graceland – you can call me al is not one of the better songs, but that album rules. no fucks.

          • I can’t remember if it was you or RJA that was collecting Mutilation vinyl. Anyways, if it was you Arcane Altar just got some new Mutilation vinyl in.

          • Rob M

            Honestly dont remember much about it beyond this song being in frequent rotation on the radio

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            That’s a great thing and all for obvious reasons, but the song above still sucks.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            IMHO, he ripped off Oingo Boingo during that period.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          I liek this song.
          I liek 1957 Chevy Chase.
          Chevy is an asshole.
          I liek assholes.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      5FDP as the headliner?

      DISQUALIFIED

    • In all honesty, there are quite a number of decent bands on that bill. Looks fun.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        A number = 1. Which is Clutch. I’d sit and watch Megadeth just because of Kiko, but the rest is stinky fart mcdoo doo poop.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          YES!!!!!!!!!

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY
          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Double YES! I saw them play together with Mastodon. Excellent show.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            No, I didn’t! 😉

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      A bunch of pure shit

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        I’m excited about the demolition derby too!

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          And the Elephant Ears (dunno if they still make those at those kinda events, but goddamn they’re yummy)

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha Scott Stapp

    • more beer

      I don’t know that’s a little outside of your area.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    THE OBSESSED

  • Rob M

    …I still like Amon Amarth, but I found “Deceiver of the Gods” to be so “meh” that I think Im kinda Viking’d out

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      I liked it better than Surtur

      • Rob M

        “Surtur…” had too much filler, but it could have been a really good EP.
        “Deciever…” has maybe two songs that stood out to me, the rest just blends together into one forgettable album

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Huh, fair enough. Thoughts on Twilight?

          • Rob M

            Twilight is the last of their albums that I enjoy all the way through…

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Right on.

        • Deceiver pretty much only had the title track and blood eagle as good tracks imo.

          • Rob M

            Agree on the S/T track…probably the best song on the album. “Father of the Wolf” is the other one that I enjoy

          • UNCLE BLACKBEARD

            that one and “Under Siege” are two dope ones on that album

          • Rob M

            I’ll have to go back and try “Under Siege”… cant even remember how that one sounds

          • UNCLE BLACKBEARD

            its prob my fav on that album. it has an impressive hook, and an equally massive performance from Johann

  • *AMON AMARTH INTENSFIES*

    GL

    • I AM NOT EVEN GOING TO LISTEN TO THE NEW SONGS, GONNA WAIT FOR THE ALBUM DROP, BROS.

      GL

      • Spear

        At Dawn’s First Light is pretty different in a good way. I’m hoping the rest of the album follows suit.

        • I will have to take your word for it. But, I am ready.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Amon Amarth- death metal AC/DC.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      That’s why we like them!!!

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        I know, same reason people like Cannibal Corpse.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Yep

    • Spear

      It’s totally true, but I like all their shit.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        That seems to be common. You saw Vemod, so you’re totally off the hook for everything……………….until I see them. Then, it’s back on the hate of fuck.

        • Spear

          Until then, I will miss the cold embrace of your loving hatefucks.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Which at this rate could be a while. Who the fuck knows when Vemod will be in the States.

          • Spear

            Guess you’ll have to go to Norway.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, I figured you’d say that. Fucker.

          • It’s easier to just die, and go to hell.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3x0NPI_A70

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Fuck yes dude!

          • Probably my favorite song by them.

          • Atomik Hatefukks.

  • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

    That new Moonsorrow video is so fucking awful (awesome song though). It looks like they did the entire thing on Windows Paint 95, or a really bad early PS1 game.

    And woohoo, some new (Infant)Metal!!!!!! Definitely pre-ordering this! m/

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the In This Moment drummer in question:

    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/zi4eWYGJYwU/maxresdefault.jpg

    Something makes me wanna punch him in the mouth just as he’s getting off the short bus. I think he quit to become one of Turisas’ dancing gimps.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      In this Titties.

    • Rob M

      Something makes you want to punch him?

      Im thinking the fact he was the drummer for “In This Moment” is reason enough

      • Ew.

      • To be fair, their first few records actually required somewhat talented drumming. Then she went all female marylin manson and ruined it. I liked their first two or 3 albums. She has a great voice which she is currently wasting with the heinous style of music they play now.

        • Rob M

          Surprisingly, I actually have heard their first album, but it really didnt make much of an impact. I remember it being pretty standard metalcore, but with a female singer as the hook

          • Pretty sure they were just hard rock in the albums im thinking of.

          • Rob M

            Admittedly its been awhile since Ive listened to it, and I cant speak for anything else they ever did, but If we’re talking about “Beautiful Tragedy” I think I remember them kind of riding the line between metalcore and hard rock depending on the song

    • He’ll probably make more money drumming and yelling “aydydydyi! aydydydyi!” with that bunch of clowns than he was being in the Maria Brink Burlesque Revue.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        Probably. It’s easy to forget there’s anyone in ITM besides her.

        • more beer

          Tits!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I kinda like the look of that video, it looks like a rotoscoped sequence from those Bakshi LOTR movies.

      • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

        Reminds me of some of the CGI sequences from really old PS1 games like Overblood and Deception, which isn’t a good thing.

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    That Behexen release date is too far, fuck! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16g_M0NGV7k

  • tigeraid

    I enjoy these concise mini “otter news” reports.

    Also, Amon Amarth kills, despite the lack of creativity and growth.

  • UNCLE BLACKBEARD

    this bigass dumbass STS tour, and the SE gets shafted again

  • Celtic Frosty

    That True Black Dawn album is fucking great

  • Celtic Frosty

    Is that a jaw harp on that Moonsorrow track?

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Yep (I think you mean Jew Harp, or mouth harp). They also used that on Karjunhyski (I think I spelled that right)

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I have a jaw harp. I use it all the time. It rules.

  • It’s Euronymous’s birthday today.
