Unborn Generation has released a new album today June 15th. ”Vøid” is a concept album about the main character's seek of truth that leads him into the darkness, to the deep black abyss.
The album includes 30 minutes of grim and dirty Grind ’n’ Roll that grabs the listener with a tight grip.
"There might be few moments of relief on the way. But it sure ain't a holiday trip to sunny Las Palmas" says the guitar player and vocalist Herkko.
”Vøid” is the first release with the new line-up and the album is released via Inverse Records.
Spanish Death / Grind crew Nasty Surgeons reveal a video clip as the second advance single for their upcoming release. Infectious Stench, which will see the light on July 5th through Xtreem Music. Entitled "The Lobotomist," you can watch the blood-soaked video HERE.
Having released their debut album, Exhumation Requiem, in January 2017 with a very good acceptance in the gore, grind, and death metal scene, Nasty Surgeons are back with a new album including 11 songs that will for sure appeal to any fan of bands like old Carcass, Necrony, Exhumed, The County Medical Examiners, and General Surgery.
Release date for Infectious Stench will be July 5th through Xtreem Music on CD format. Watch the brand-new video for "The Lobotomist" HERE at Xtreem Music's official YouTube channel. The previously revealed first single "The Carcass" can be heard both HERE, also at Xtreem's official YouTube channel, and at the label's Soundcloud HERE.
Portuguese grind metal band AXIA have teamed up with Decibel Magazine to stream their new song "Fading Into Nothing." The song is taken from their aptly named new album Pulverizer which will be released on April 27th via Selfmadegod.
Listen to the song here: https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2018/04/20/track-premiere-axia-fading-into-nothing/
AXIA was crafted by four seasoned musicians known for their work in The Ominous Circle, Holocausto, Canibal, Heavenwood and Colosso among others; vocalist Alex Vale is joined by guitarist Max Tome, with bassist Ze Pedro and drummer Marcelo Aires rounding out the rhythm section. This new project builds on their collective experience to create an opus that is even more negative and hopeless than their previous respective outputs.
Mastered by Peter In de Betou (Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, Meshuggah, Hypocrisy), Pulverizer attests to AXIA's harsh determination. Called "a furiously paced representation of a highly mechanized war zone" by No Clean Singing, this album is sure to make a grim mark on all who hear it.

The quartet from North East of Poland finished recording the newest material late 2017 in 666studio (Christ Agony, Norylsk, F.A.M.). It’s over half an hour of brutal death/grind with slam parts and bone-crushing breakdowns.

The album will definitely appeal for fans of Suffocation, Napalm Death, Lock Up, Aborted, Cephalic Carnage, Vomitory, Cattle Decapitation, Devourment..

Founded in 2013, Edinburgh-based Scumpulse follows a previously-released EP and single with one of the most anticipated albums to hail from the Gore House compound. Their debut album, Rotten, delivers eight punishing tracks of perfectly blended crusty, blackened metallic grindcore. Eight tracks align into a savage, thirty-eight-minute assault, bridging influences from Darkthrone and Impaled Nazarene to Carcass and Exhumed. Rotten was recorded between Black Cave Recordings, Chamber Studios, and s9fifty, and mixed/mastered by Andrew Rankine, and completed with artwork by Kasper "Sandullos" Povlsen. Rotten is a debut you do not want to miss.

Indian brutal death metal legends return with their highly awaited new album titled ‘Amputheatre’. It’s a quantum leap ahead in terms of songwriting when compared to their 2013 debut ‘Skewered in the Sewer’. Gutslit have improved phenomenally and honed their skills in the company of the new vocalist Kaushal LS of Godless. Their trademark brutality now sees development with the incorporation of grind influences, and their music couldn’t be better balanced and memorable. This makes them stand head and shoulders above from the sea of brutal death metal bands out there, and with a massive European tour lined up this year, Gutslit sure won’t make it easy to forget their masterpiece.

Japanese grind band Friendship to release 'Hatred' via Southern Lord in October; tracks now streaming
Southern Lord has teamed up with their cohorts at Japanese label Daymare Recordings for the impending vinyl release of Hatred, the unrelenting debut LP by Japan’s mysterious Friendship.
While Friendship's identity remains an enigma, those who have encountered their antagonistic, loud, and murky sonic world, can testify to the sheer power of the auditory torture the band creates. Friendship has previously self-released two CD EPs which sold out in a month, since reissued as I & II vinyl and cassette versions through Sentient Ruin. For their Hatred LP, the band delivers twelve caustic tracks in just over twenty-five minutes, the album recorded in their home city of Tokyo, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
Originally released by Daymare Recordings on CD and digital formats back in June, Southern Lord will now release Friendship’s Hatred on vinyl October 27th. Blackened, dark, loud, fast, and intense, fans of prior Southern Lord releases by Nails, Heartless, Dead In The Dirt, Gust, and other brutal, grinding devastation should take heed.
Stream: "Tortures" and "Life Sentence"
Having shared the stage with the likes of Full Of Hell, Sumac, Endon, and more, and having gained a reputation for extremely loud live shows, Friendship will fittingly open for the mighty Sleep in Tokyo in January. Find more info here and watch for international tour dates from Friendship to be announced in the months ahead.

“Calvin: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
Hobbes: How so?
Calvin: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.”
This quote from Bill Watterson’s iconic comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes”, resumes accurately Dephosphorus’ intentions.
With 6 vinyl releases spanning from 2011 to 2015, the Athenians are embarked on a cosmic quest. Their concept and aesthetics draw influences from cosmology, astronomy and science fiction literature, as well as the associated sociopolitical and existential repercussions.
Being impossible to describe their music style by using one or two genre references, they have chosen to call it “astrogrind”.
“Impossible Orbits” is Dephosphorus’ 3rd album and their darker and more violent effort to date – both musically and lyrically. Its 9 tracks clocking at under 30’, see them return to a more condensed form of expression, not unlike their critically acclaimed “Axiom” debut mini-LP.
The similarities with the latter do not stop there, as Panos Alexiadis is again on board handling the live electronics and putting an extra eerie touch to the record’s atmosphere.
Check out the first excerpt, “Rational Reappraisal”, which can be streamed at Selfmadegod Records SoundCloud or YouTube channel, as well as Dephosphorus’ Bandcamp page.
“Impossible Orbits” has been recorded and mixed analogically at Unreal Studios. The artwork has been hand drawn by Viral Graphics.
Notorious grindcore label from Poland, Selfmadegod Records, will release CD and cassette version on June 15th 2017. Digital copies will be available directly though the band’s Bandcamp page. A vinyl edition will follow later this year.
Following a long stretch of radio silence, Portland, Oregon-based grindcore band Transient announces a revamped line-up, and plans of returning to both the stage and the studio in the months ahead.
Following the 2013 release of their self-titled debut LP through Six Weeks Records and an extensive US tour, Transient took some time to realign their line-up and attack. Having replaced two members in recent months, vocalist Krysta Curry (formerly Martinez, also of Landmine Marathon) and guitarist Adam Wilson now welcome bassist Brandon Curry, and drummer, Justin Rodda, both new members also hailing from Endorphins Lost, who released their debut LP through Six Weeks in late 2016.
Issues Transient on the status of the band, "We are really proud of the years that we've spent on this project. We love everyone who has helped bring the band to life at one time or another and continue to wish them all the best in their variegated endeavours. This Summer, Transient will emerge from hiding with new music and faces. Justin and Brandon bring with them tremendous abilities and will add a new depth and ferocity to our sound. Those that have had the privilege of watching them perform live know exactly how much infectious energy they'll bring. We're excited for what the future holds."
Transient has also booked Earhammer Studios for the first week of September, where the band will work with Greg Wilkinson to record the follow-up to their debut LP. Shows in Seattle, Portland, and Oakland are being booked surrounding the recording sessions. Transient will continue working on their new material, and will make their live re-emergence at Northwest Terror Fest in June, joining Warning, Cephalic Carnage, Wolves In The Throne Room, Yob, Samothrace, and dozens more.
Additional widespread touring from the band is imminent.
