In the name of horror, punk, sludge and more Possessor is set to unleash a brand new album by the title of Gravelands next month. In waiting in anticipation Possessor has unleashed an official music video for a track titled Flight Of The Mutilator from the upcoming album. Flight Of The Mutilator is a murky, sludge filled track that is sure to stick to your ribs. From the first few seconds onward you are greeted by massive rumbling bass lines that ultimately get sewn in with dense murky riffs. Dissonant fuzzed out vocals fly over top of the wall of dense sludge to complete the overall grimy sound. Flight Of The Mutilator is a fast up tempo track that gets your head nodding before you realize. It is an engaging and entertaining track that is easy to get in to. Not only that but this track will manifest itself within your brain for some time to come. This ghoulish offering is just the tip of the grave stone of what is to come from these horror hounds and is a great offering to set you up for the remainder of the release that is to come in just a little over one month.

International death dealers Ovaryrot are getting set to unleash yet another corpse obsessed beast of a record. For now however, we are graced with a single titled Chemania. This track is just as brutish and grisly as you would imagine coming from Ovaryrot. Complete with jarring drumming and ever flesh ripping riffs that are only to be backed by blooded vocals, Chemania is a chaotic and skull smashing offering. This single is out for blood, hits fast and hits hard leaving you bleeding and struggling to grasp at what little light in your eyes that you have left. This is a sign of things to come from this international beast of a band, and signs all point to their new record being as sickening as you would hope for.
To stoke the flames for their release, Hiss From The Moat has unleashed a lyric video for the title track. This track is wicked and incredibly savage. Without hesitation, Hiss From The Moat sets in with bone cracking blast beats that are coupled with scythe like riffs and monstrous growls. This follows through the entire offering making this to be an incredibly devilish and flesh tearing track. This is just a taste of what is left to come, and if this is any indication, The Harrier is going to be one hell of a record.
Deathgrind/punk stalwarts Deathgrave have unleashed a brand new video for their title track. The nightmare fuel video is great and adds even more punch to a track that is already brain bashing. Check out the official video for So Real, It’s Now below!
Hailing from Bangalore, India are tech death monsters Nihilus. Next year in February they are slated to drop their record Borealis, but for now we have their first single Splitting Atoms. This track has much to do with the atrocities of war and of course the devastation of atom bombs. Within this track you are treated to technical pin point riffs that are supplemented by ever somersaulting drumming and throat shredding vocals. And while this is tech death, it isn’t over technical to the point where it is migraine inducing. This is technical, but melodic and well constructed providing you with a neck cranking overall solid track. Splitting Atoms is a nice taste of what we can come to expect from the rest of the record once it does drop, but for now we have this explosive offering.
