Inanimate Existence - A Never Ending Cycle of Atonement (2014)
Buy the album and their merch on Big Cartel! (no seriously, do it)
I feel like this will be one of the more underrated albums of 2014. Inanimate Existence has released a really remarkable work of technical death metal. If you took Arkaik and Decrepit Birth then smashed them together, you’d get this album.  There’s also handful of atmospheric moments, along with a surprising cameo of female clean vocals on Rune Of Destruction (which they made a video for as well).
Honestly, it’s really hard to not get blown away by this album.  There’s a lot of great stuff coming out this year, and I have a strong feeling that this December I’ll still be listening to this album because it deserves to be in the top10 for 2014.

Within The Ruins - Phenomena (2014)
Buy it from IndieMerch!
Phenomena is Within The Ruins’ fourth full-length studio album, which has been released surprisingly fast considering they released Elite just last year.  It is, to me, a step up from Elite considering the amount of boring breakdown-ish bullshit has been cut, and it sounds much more active.  The guitar riffs are definitely fun to listen to, and it seems there’s use of something that is similar to a killswitch on the guitars, creating a funky disorienting effect.  Third track Calling Card certainly is a great display of this effect.
I’m not a fan of djent, which you may know, but that hasn’t put me off of this album. It’s fantastic no matter one, and certainly catchy.  As far as using a lower tuning goes, Allegaeon does it better.
Catch these dudes on the Summer Slaughter tour right NOW as well!
PS - There is a song that definitely has a based on the Inspector Gadget theme! Also a few riffs from Super Mario!

Cannibal Corpse are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth full-length, entitled, “A Skeletal Domain” for September 16, 2014 - listen to “Sadistic Embodiment” now at http://metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse/Preparation for A Skeletal Domain did not vary significantly from previous efforts. “At the end of the day, we’re still making a death metal record, no matter where it’s being recorded,” relays bassist Alex Webster. Mark Lewis offered a slightly different, modern recording approach, but the band stressed that they could not be more pleased with their previous albums with Rutan, and the door is most definitely open to work with him again in the future. Changing producers is something the band has historically done after every few albums, if only to not get too comfortable. CANNIBAL CORPSE also tried to step outside of their comfort zone when it came to songwriting and their musical performances. “Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That’s what makes this exciting,” adds Webster. “Anyone who really listens to this album with an open mind will hear that it’s not same-old same-old.” Mark Lewis would concur with Webster’s analysis and even goes a step further by claiming that “there are moments on this record that have never happened in musical history.” CANNIBAL CORPSE have proven time and again that they have more fuel in their tank, more riffs in their minds, and more ways to describe gore than any single group of human beings could ever have hoped. The thirteenth album will prove to be as important a landmark in their career as just about any other. CANNIBAL CORPSE are consistency defined.In related CANNIBAL CORPSE happenings, this September, the band will unleash their first-ever official authorized biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age, Bible Of Butchery - Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection, available everywhere this Fall!"A Skeletal Domain" Track Listing: 1.

There’s an unusual tour taking off this September throughout North America with Crowbar at the helm.  They’re with thrash shredders Revocation and Havok, along with Fit For An Autopsy (who just finished touring with Devildriver), and Armed For Apocalypse.
I only care about Revocation and Havok since Revocation’s new album will be probably be fully written by the time they’re on tour and we’ll get to hear some new shreddy tunes.

So Agalloch is on tour and I had no idea until someone came back from the show tonight and said how great it was.
Fucking awesome. Had no clue they were on tour and I missed them. I’d rather be fucking dead.

Black Metal and Negro Spirituals

I’ll understand if this isn’t true metal and if you can’t feature it. My project blends black metal with negro spirituals (I know “black metal” heh). Varg would have my head. This project came together on 4chan strangely enough and I’ve been relying heavily on feedback from metalheads to make it as good as I can. I finished my album yesterday. I think there is a common factor in the two styles not only the repulsion of Christianity, but a rawness. Anyway enough of me legitimizing have a listen and see if it’s something you can do something with. Again, if not I totally understand. Cheers!

So this is an awesome submission I just got. Don’t let the initial sound of the song scare you guys away. It has a very creepy vibe and I fucking like it.

Be like me and listen to the rest of the album on Bandcamp.

fallujah:

Drenched in sweat and caged in the steel

Fall from grace temptress surreal 

Skin carved from stone 

The lust inside her bones

A damsel so content 

The child of excess 

Her skin in my control 

Ignited all alone

As helpless as vermin swallowed whole

The pain ignites her and every desperate lustful bone 

Hold your tongue

You’re mine tonight

Your flesh and blood are my prize 

Skin carved from stone

I’ll control you if you like

Does it make you feel alive?

Does it numb the pain in side? 

Does it make you feel alive?

Skin carved from stone

Fallujah released another song from their new album and it’s much, MUCH better than the first one.

Plus it’s about BDSM.
