'Beast', the new album from Montreal based deathcore pioneers, Despised Icon, was released yesterday via Nuclear Blast Records! To coincide with the band's first release since 2009's 'Day Of Mourning', Despised Icon have released a full band performance of the track 'Inner Demons'.
'Beast' was produced and engineered by former guitarist Yannick St-Amand (Beneath The Massacre, Neuraxis) and mixed / mastered by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Opeth, Nevermore). Artwork was created by Alexandre Goulet.
For many extreme music fans, it may be hard to remember a time before DESPISED ICON, given the massive influence they’ve subsequently had on the genre. But when the group formed back in 2002 and released 'Consumed by Your Poison' the same year, there was little intersection between the sounds of classic death metal and the brute force of hardcore. But DESPISED ICON were among the first to fully embrace the signatures of the traditional death metal formula combined with a relentless embrace of breakdowns, part of an emerging new sound.
Now DESPISED ICON have returned with their upcoming album entitled 'Beast'. The genre-defining band is fully reawakened, poised to recapture the crown with the monstrous and merciless might of their potent expression. Featuring the men responsible for most of the band’s now classic death metal catalogue, 'Beast' is a vicious commentary on the state of the world and the state of music itself.

Phoenix, Arizona metal band The World To Come has premiered their music video for their song "Scribe Of Thoth" exclusively through New Fury Media. To view this music video, check out HERE. The song is from the band's recently announced upcoming new album The Cartesian which will be released September 30th, 2016 via Famined Records.
Formed in 2011 by guitarist Shane Griffin, The World to Come is a band formed around the creative idea of exploring the music aesthetic. Creating a sense of ambiance and emotion to accompany the overall ideal of any deathcore band. Starting off amidst the plethora of hardcore music talent within the Phoenix metro area, The World To Come eventually morphed into its own entity. Taking each members unique love for atmospheric music and creating a new blend of heavy hitting, and thought provoking progressive metal.
The Browning could very well be heavy music's answer to the Terminator. Whereas everybody's favourite Arnold Schwarzenegger cyborg hid an exoskeleton under a sheath of skin, the Kansas City quartet—Jonny [vocals, electronics], Cody [drums], Brian [guitar], and Rick [bass]— thinly veil a hard rock edge beneath a casing of skittering electronic dance music, hip-hop grime, metallic brutality, and industrial expanse. That signature style is "back" in a big way on "Isolation", their third full-length album and first for Spinefarm Records.
"Isolation" arrives on June 24 and it's The Browning's most ambitious offering to date.
"Over the course of the last three years, rock music is primarily all I've listened to,” Jonny explains. "I've been ingesting bands like Rammstein, Disturbed, and Three Days Grace. My writing swung towards that. I knew this album was going to have more of a rock vibe. Obviously, there's still metal, but the scope has expanded. The electronics remain a big part of it. Since day one, the whole point was to not only be the heaviest electronic band, but the band with by far the most electronics."
He furthered, "Isolation is by far the best album The Browning has done yet. It has everything I wanted in it and nothing is missing. It shows how the band has progressed and matured since our last release. So I cannot wait for the world to hear it."
CA based metal outfit Carnifex, will release their new album entitled "Slow Death" on August 5 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Cover art for the album was created by renowned artist and longtime collaborator, Godmachine.
Check out a quick teaser of music and the album artwork here.
"Album number six, over 10 years as a band and we have more fire and passion than ever," comments vocalist Scott Ian Lewis. "This album will reshape our genre and be looked back on as an album that started a new movement for aggressive, dark metal. We're going to show those who love us and those who hate us just how far reaching our ambition is."

"It's been 7 years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged," comments the band. "The O.G. line-up is back and the new shit hits hard. You'll hear sounds of our older slammin' death metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can't wait to unleash the Beast."
Nuclear Blast’s head of retail Roy Culver added:
"I signed Despised Icon to Century Media back in 2004 after hearing their debut record ‘Consumed By Your Poison’. The band perfected the mix of ferocious, technical death metal with a modern take on hardcore and their first record for the label, ‘The Healing Process’, broadened the minds of a whole new generation of metal heads. I love these guys and couldn’t be happier to be working with them again here at Nuclear Blast. The Icon is back!"
