TMP: Moon Tooth, Body Count, Deicide, and More!

It’s Monday, which means I somehow managed to get off the couch after a weekend of MLB playoffs, football, presidential debates, and most importantly, Westworld! Get back into the workweek with some metal news.

Prog weirdos Thank You Scientist are touring with heavier prog weirdos Moon Tooth. I will sure as shit be at the December 1st show in New Haven. If you spot the Toilet ov Hell shirt, you get a free beer! Or maybe I should get the free beer. I’m not sure how this works.


Finnish prog/folk/melodic band Amorphis are touring the US with Swallow the Sun.


Dark Tranquility posted the second song off their upcoming album.

Want some spoopy industrial death noise? Steel Hook Prostheses have you covered. New album out October 28

Chicago-based doom band Cokegoat (we’re seriously reaching the end of the line of possible goat names) released a song off their album coming in November. I kinda dig it.

  • Polish black metal band Furia posted a bandcamp page for their upcoming album, which was entirely recorded in a coal mine. I think this was mentioned in a recent toilet-cast, but now you can pre-order it!
  • Protest the Hero are finally releasing their EP a year after the subscription service thing. I want this album, but $12 for an EP seems steep, no? Also the song they have streaming is super meh, so my enthusiasm levels are low.
  • The third track of Khemmis’ new album is out now. Stream all three here.
  • Ice-T’s Body Count is in the studio again.
  • Prosthetic Records is having a sale! Save 16.66% off their store using the promo code “Fall666” for the rest of the month.
  • Avenged Sevenfold’s logo is appearing all over for mysterious “Marketing Ploy” reasons. I wonder if M. Shadows is behind this fucking clown epidemic as well.
  • Deicide posted “Drums are done…..” on their facebook page. Sounds ambiguous. I wonder what it means.
  • A Sound of Thunder has a Kickstarter for a covers album that ends TODAY! Hurry up and fund it because they are only releasing it to the backers.
  • I swear I saw some news about Ash Borer earlier in the week, but now can’t seem to find anything. Can someone remind me what the news was?

    Definitely gonna check out the new Furia.

  • Jack Rabbit
  • Prosthetic have a good amount of 2016 music. So far, a few of them are on my favorite releases of this year Spirit Adrift, Skeletonwitch, Spellcaster, Exmortus and Schammasch.

    I would def go to that Swallow The Sun/Amorphis gig!

    I’m also so freaking stoked at new Dark Tranquillity. I even dreamed today that I was managing a DT gig at Maracaibo, jajajajajajaja! This new song remarks the return of Mikael Stanne clean vocals <3

  • That Protest The Hero song is top notch. 11/10.


    • Jack Rabbit

      I like the chorus, but the rest of the song seems to lack the speed and overall energy that makes them such a fun band. But the piano is a nice touch

      • Joaquin Stick

        The pace of the vocals is so off from the pace of everything else. Just seemed so haphazard.

        • Jack Rabbit

          I dont know if its just me, but Walker seemed very tired or strained in that song (It could also just be the way the vocals were recorded and mixed)

      • Hmmm, I actually was surprised how fast it was. Interesting how different ppl can have vastly different opinions on a song. Looking forward to the other tracks, though.

        • Jack Rabbit

          I’ll give it some more listens later, it typically takes me a few listens to get into new PtH material anyway. Glad you’re enjoying it though!

  • Howard Dean

    It’s a few days old by now, but French BM maestros Antaeus are set to release a new album next month after ten long years of silence. This has been an unexpected autumn of Norma Evangelium Diaboli news, and ol’ HD has been at full mast chubby for a few weeks now.

    To spy a track from the new album (foreword: it’s hateful, aggressive, and all kinds of awesome) and to read an awesome interview with the band’s frontman MkM, go here:

    • Joaquin Stick

      A few days old is my specialty.

    • So fucking fierce. The drums never let up.

      They seriously were they most chaotic sounding band I’ve ever seen live aside from Nyogthaeblisz.

      • Howard Dean

        I guess they recruited the drummer from Lucifyre for this record, and he just absolutely crushed it (even though they didn’t give him any creative freedom with his playing, and basically dictated how he needed to play). They talk a lot about the band dynamics in the interview. Pretty volatile crew.

        • I didn’t know that the drummer was from Lucifyre, but that does make perfect sense. Lucifyre is intense. Going to have to check out that interview later on. Thanks for the info HD.

    • YouTube Power Metal Fan

      This song has got that old 1980’s magic of metal sound to it,a sound that sadly is so very very rare to find today. This is one of the most awesome metal songs I have ever heard and it makes me want to grab a sword and my abbysal-whip and go fight the demons of hell.”


  • Ayreonaut

    Cokegoat lol

  • HessianHunter


  • Not much news I can use this week, it would appear.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod


  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Ash Borer’s new album “The Irrepassable Gate” will be released on December 2nd by Profound Lore Records. Listen to the title track here–>

    • Joaquin Stick

      Thanks lol. I saved a link to this but it vanished somehow. Couldn’t find it again for whatever reason.

    • Boooooooooooooring.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        Yea, I listened to the track once and my initial impression is “meh.”

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Death Dealer have started working on a new album

  • Hubert

    Man, I would never do cocaïne. Total slander.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    I heard Cirith Ungol killed at Frost and Fire and Tim’s vocals still sound sick. Only footage I could find so far. RIDE THE FUCKING BLACK MACHINE!

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    New Antaeus rips, can’t wait to hear the whole album. Also looking forward to the new SHP and Khemmis albums.
    I haven’t paid much attention to Dark Tranquillity since their “Fiction” album came out in 2007. I’ll probably give their new record a good listen when it’s released.

  • Mr. Bojangles

    a little known secret, the song Majestic Beast is about me.

    “On the wings of my eagle
    To black river I flew
    To the dale of the dead
    To the stream that grinds all flesh “

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    JJD’s news you can use: Flotsam And Jetsam are touring with Helstar and Hatchet. Saxon is touring with Unidentified Flying Object.

    The dudes in Furia get bonus black-metal points if they come down with black lung from recording in a coal mine.
