My eardrums are still a little hungover from seeing Moon Tooth and Intronaut on Saturday, but Monday is a relentless force so I must bring you the news.

I don’t think I can say enough good things about the show this weekend. Moon Tooth is as spazzy and fun as I hoped and Intronaut are just so damn professional. I was hoping seeing Entheos would change my mind about the band, and yeah Evan Brewer is incredible, but I still just can’t dig it. But I digress, newstime!

Malevolent Creation, Incantation, and Seeker are going on a US tour soon.

Whitechapel and Suicide Silence are co-headlining a tour with Despised Icon. Only a few dates for now, but keep an eye out for more soon if you’re into that kinda thing.

Following a European tour, Goatwhore will be touring the US. Some dates are with The Blood Royale with cheese.

Goatwhore-Tour


Wormrot announced a new album and released the first song. Voices will be out October 14. The epilepsy is strong with this video. Pre-order at Earache.


The Agonist is set to release their next album on September 30. Check out a new song from the female fronted melodic metallurgists.


After a long absence (since 2012), Twelve Foot Ninja are back with a new song off their upcoming album (August 26). I remember thinking this band was really fun, but this song doesn’t quite do so much for me. Looking forward to hearing more though.


That’s all I got for now. What do you have to share?

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Ha “straight outta hell” how ingenious

    • Joaquin Stick

      It’s so edgy. You just don’t get it.

    • No one has ever used that phrase to describe a metal band, album, or tour before!

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Never ever!

    • Straight Outta Allowance Money is more like it.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      BACK TO HELL TOUR 1985

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Which one? There was probably a ton of metal tours with that title in the 80’s.

        • Joaquin Stick

          STRAIGHT OUTTA HELL, THEN INTO HEAVEN FOR A MINUTE, THEN BACK TO HELL AGAIN TOUR OF 1987

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            That was the title of Anvil’s 1987 tour with co headliner Grim Reaper and Meliah Rage!

        • CyberneticOrganism

          All of them.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I see.

  • “Whitechapel and Suicide Silence are co-headlining a tour with Despised Icon. Only a few dates for now, but keep an eye out for more soon if you’re into that kinda thing.”

    *readies poser slaying steel*

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      You have my sword!

    • Maik Beninton™
    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      You forgot to mention Carnifex and Oceano. I like Carnifex. Fight me.

      • I don’t think you want that.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Why? A former member of Oceano was in my Communications 101 class in college. He was a nice guy.

          • Randall has a sword

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I have a Hulk.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i have guns

          • more beer

            For the win.

          • ME GORAK!!!™
          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Puny Blackbeard can’t harm Hulk! Guns don’t affect Hulk!

          • Waynecro

            Swords + guns + knives + machetes

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i always favored blunt weapons

          • Waynecro

            My brother used to work the night shift at a sketchy adult-video store in a bad neighborhood, and he carried around one of those collapsible metal batons in case he had to deal with troublemakers. Those batons are highly effective at messing people up.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            saw a black guy i used to work with whoop 4 mexicans with a piece of metal s-lock over a ladder once.

          • Waynecro

            Grab whatever’s handy, drop fools.

      • You know, I was ready to give out free passes for Despised Icon, but Carnifex? I’m sorry, but you know what I must do

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          I believe it is time to

          KILL WITH POWER!!!!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Ross plz! You wouldn’t kill good old JJD!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            You’re right, I wouldn’t

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            But I also can’t pass up a good Manowar reference.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It was a good one.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Yay!

          • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

            Indeed, Ross. These wieners must DIE BY POWER.

            https://youtu.be/iQKAXvqxeVs

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            What happens when you are killed with power?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            You die by power.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Oh, and this song slays! Thanks man

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Do it! I dare you!

    • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

      Holy shit when you said this on last week’s Radio episode, I thought you were joking.

      You have my axe and my kukris.

    • Óðinn
  • Thank you, Thank You Scientist, for being so damned good.
    *changes name to You’re Welcome McNulty*

    • Joaquin Stick

      Finally getting around to listening to it now. I was fearful since I didn’t really love the songs they put out so far, but it seems like they went with the safer choices, cause the rest of the album kicks ass.

    • Waynecro

      I like Thank You Scientist a lot. I hope that one day the band becomes successful enough to buy a comma for the band’s name. Thank You Scientist and Harms Way should do Kickstarter campaigns to raise funds for punctuation.

      • It can be called “Teh please halp us afford punctuation” tour.

        • Waynecro

          I’m happy to donate the unnecessary commas and apostrophes I cut from the documents I edit every day. Maybe I should form some sort of nonprofit organization.

          • 🙁 for all the wasted commas and apostrophes of the world.

          • Waynecro

            For a mere pittance, you can donate your excessive and misplaced punctuation to needy bands around the world.

  • Eliza

    Intronaut and Moon Tooth live must’ve been an excellent show.

    • Joaquin Stick

      It was! The vocal harmonies from Intronaut were unexpectedly awesome. And that fat bass tone was a thing to behold.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    so, what youre telling me is no news i can use to muse upon?

    • Joaquin Stick

      I couldn’t find anything particularly Abredolf-like this week. Maybe Tyree can help.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      You still my not be able to use this, but you can bask in it’s glory

        *Googles “how to get to Iceland for free”*

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          please include me on any findings

        • Stanley

          Wow air is almost free.

          http://wowair.us

          • Abradolf Lincler

            World of Warcraft charges a monthly subscription fee so you can’t take a griffin for free

          • Stanley

            I like this, but I don’t know what it means.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            wow, those seem a little too cheap.

          • Stanley

            It’s legit. Just don’t take any luggage or you’ll get screwed.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Noted!

          • If you’re some highfallutin’ coastal elite. The rest of us have to add on the cost of an awful Southwest flight.

          • Stanley

            Ha ha. Just ride your bike to a proper city.

          • HA!

          • Abradolf Lincler

            Always had the suspicion that Joe was Foghorn Leghorn

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Eh, what’s up doc?

          • Joaquin Stick

            Shit, that’s actually very reasonable.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Pay attention to the small print at the bottom as well!

        • Eliza

          Nadra!

      • Abradolf Lincler

        that is one fuck of a show

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I will go back to Reykjavik anytime for any reason.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Don’t recall if we featured Gorguts’ US tour with Intronaut and Brain Tentacle yet (probably did ’cause I’m posting the dates below).

    Derek Rydquist (who did the Spiraling Void single) is not going to be The Faceless’ vocalist after all and word is Ken Sorceron is the new man. Which would mean he’s a busy as hell man, with Abigail Williams, a new bm band The Accuser even if his Post-Lord Mantis project with Charlie… Fell… through.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Also, Destroyer Destroyer vocalist dies at 28.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S99rn59mwvw

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        Haven’t heard of them, but damn that sucks nonetheless! 28 is way too young to be getting off this continuum ride. 🙁

    • Joaquin Stick

      Man, the “personnel timeline” for The Faceless is just going to get funnier and funnier. (RFI)

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        They had a sexophonist for ten minutes?

        • Joaquin Stick

          Keene: Wow, cool sax man, you wanna be in a band?
          Saxman: Yeah! I love playing along with metal.
          Keene: Sweet, you’re in, here’s what you’re going to play.
          Saxman: Mind if I change this one note?
          Keene: GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!

          • tertius_decimus

            True thing. Wind musicians are the most moody ones in a sense they play what they feel like at current moment, so playing by the notes, reading from sheets is the way they loathe.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Worked for Geoff Tate (for a little while)!

            With maximum Geoff Tate side boob included.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        That is a Deep Purple level rotating lineup

  • Guppusmaximus

    HA! When I saw D.I. on the Webster date for that (edgy) Straight Outta Hell tour, for a second, I was like no fucking way…is that the Punk band, D.I.?!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pplZj_vG9ug

    • Eliza

      Punk is not a genre I particularly enjoy, but this is really fun music.

      • Guppusmaximus

        Yea, they had a bit more ‘Cross-Over’ flair that I liked on this album. It’s no D.R.I. or The Accused but it was good shit.

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

        • Eliza

          I guess that’s why I like it, it has a thrash feel to it.

          • Guppusmaximus

            ‘Cross-Over’ done right is Ahhmazzing, imho. It has that crusty d-beat with some groovy & crunchy Thrash riffage when they break it on down. The album ‘Grinning Like an Undertaker’ is fawking gnarly m/ m/

          • Eliza

            Any album described as “fawking gnarly” is worth a listen.

          • Guppusmaximus
          • Eliza

            Sadly, it’s not available for me, but I’m sure I’ll find an upload of it on Youtube.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Good stuff! For a minute there, I thought that was a Velvet Acid Christ album cover.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Bad news: NAILS cancelled their European tour and have gone on hiatus.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Now I’ll never be one of them.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        That’s the worst part. I don’t even want to think about what will happen when the Oblivion Express goes on hiatus or disbands.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        Damn, and all this time I was wanting to be the first kid on my block to say “I am one of them”.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      This sucks

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        It’s so sad.

    • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

      Randy Blythe joined the band? :-p

  • Not gonna lie, I’d go to that Whitechapel show if it came to Atlanta.

  • Barghest needs to cut the shit and release a full length.

    • Lacertilian

      Could it be that cutting said shit is what is resulting in them dropping EPs?
      I guess until we hear a DAMN FULL LENGTH, we’ll never know.

  • Hans Müller

    Shorts needed to be changed after that Wormrot track. Will be seeing them here in October, should be a blast.
    Tyree very rightfully included that cover art in the last Sunday Sesh, it’s rather gorgeous (even when it’s not warbling).

  • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

    ARCTIC SLEEP! I don’t have a record player, but I’ll definitely toss their digital stuff on my never ending wish list (as my wallet coughs up a plume of dust and hairballs). Still miffed that they didn’t win Best Unsigned Band.
