TMP: Gnaw Their Tongues, UADA, A Sense of Gravity, and More!

The end of the year is nigh. News seems to be slimming as the metal world stops everything they are doing to start their top ten lists. Will any of these little bits of news distract you for a moment? I hope so.

In weird black metal news, Gnaw Their Tongues set a release date of December 9. Check out a track below and get more info here.


Here’s the song Sepultura released on Thursday in case you missed it.


Heavy prog dudes A Sense of Gravity released their third song off their album coming out Friday. This is their best yet. Can’t wait for this album.


Brutal death metal band Beheaded has a new track out for streaming. More info here, album out January 27.


Move over Jimmy, there’s a new detective in town! Here me out on this total piece of speculation. Khemmis announced that they booked studio time in February. Now, at almost the same time, VERY SUSPICIOUSLY, Spirit Adrift announced a sale that would help fund “our side of a very exciting release that’s shaping up for next year.” BUSTED BY JOAQUIN! A split between these two would blow my nuts off. I can’t wait to say told you so.


  • The other weird Colin Marston project, Behold the Arctopus, released a surprise non-EP early last week.
  • Mathcore Index is releasing a free sampler with a bunch of bands, including Hadean, on Wednesday, so keep an eye on their bandcamp page.
  • Gojira is already saying that the plan for the next album is “we’re not going to turn into a super-extreme death metal band or something super-progressive. It’s going to be somewhere in between.” Which I guess means it will be heavier than Magma?
  • UADA are making some progress on their next album, according to their facebook.
  • Sawft prog metal band The Contortionist are in pre-production on a new album.
  • Black Anvil is announcing something tomorrow.
  • Grindy band Call of the Void released a new track from their upcoming album over at Clrvynt. Album out December 16.
  • Evocation signed to Metal Blade and will have a new album next year.
  • New Antaeus album finally shipped. Stoked to get the most ripping black metal album of the year in my hands. It’s got the speed of Blood Libels and the rawness of CYFAWS. Just need that new Panphage album to release now.

      Do they have a Phanpage ?

      Can’t wait to get my Antaeus CD in the mail (should have it either today or tomorrow). Waiting for that Panphage as well as my Cultes Des Ghoules CD, too. Not sure how the shipping is working for CdG, as it seems like some distros in Europe have it in stock, but ones in the U.S. are preorder only (at least they were–I preordered from Shadow Kingdom because they were the first available). I’m fine to wait a few weeks for Coven. Since it’s such a long motherfucker I will need some time to listen. Have plenty of good stuff to blast in the meantime.

      • Ah, so you did order from over seas on that Cultes Des Ghoules album. I’m just waiting until it hits HHB. Same goes for that new Bestial Raids album which I’m more excited about actually. Fuck, so much good metal this time of the year. More to come too!

    • RJA

      I could never get into Antaeus – gave a couple good tries even. Oh well, I guess we can’t be the same person.

      • Howard Dean

        This was the track that sold me on them. Well, the entire Blood Libels album is just a monster, easily one of the most brutal black metal albums I’ve ever heard. But this track might be my favorite:

        • Seconded! I can’t think of a more relentless black metal album than this one. Maybe a couple of Marduk albums come close, but Blood Libels is a burner through and through. Total hate.

    • GoatForest

      I need a new Aosoth album…

  • Remember that time Randall Thor skipped Razor to see Gnaw Their Tongues? I remember.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Helloween announced a seriously bad ass tour

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Khemmis/Spirit Adrift split would be KILLER

  • Heavier than Magma would be GREAT.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Anything other than Magma would be great

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    Yay, the new Sepultura is good!

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Pain of Salvation confirmed Jan 13th for release date of their new album, will be more prog than the last few – including two ten minuters, and a fifteen-and-half minuter. Yelp.

    • Joaquin Stick

      DAMN! I had that on my list earlier in the week and totally forgot about it. They released the album cover too, and keeping with tradition, is a super weird choice. I’m kinda excited to see what they put together this time though, it’s been quite a long time since a real new release, and the lineup is basically all new. The longer songs in the their discography tend to be their best, so that’s all cool with me.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        I haven’t really like their 2-3 last albums so a change is good with me whatever it is.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Agreed. The Road Salts are…fine? I just don’t really care for the 70s tone.

  • If the new Sepultura record is like this song I’m sold. I dig the drumming.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Oh, are they playing “thrash” again?

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    Festival announcement news: Mountain Jam has announced their initial lineup. If you don’t know what that is it is a festival that is held at a ski resort not far from my house. It’s basically begging me for my money.

    Uada working on a new album? Devoid of Light just came out this year. (Vinyl just last month) That’s pretty cool.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      to be fair, Devoid of Light was recorded in ’15

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        Ah, that makes sense too.

  • Waynecro

    The A Sense of Gravity album should be rad, and that Beheaded track is pretty ripping. I’m also pumped about the new Call of the Void album. Great work, Mr. Stick!

  • Sweet new UADA is a good thing

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      UADA know
