There are new songs from Faith No More and Napalm Death this week. ‘Nuff Said. As awesome as that is, there are also six other amazing new tracks and videos to check out this week.
“Bloodsoaked”is a bonus track from Obituary’s latest album. It is an updated version of the song from their 1989 debut album, Slowly We Rot. The new recording of the song has thicker riffs and a bit more substance than the original. We wish that the other tracks on the new album had been more like this one.
Arcade Messiah is the new instrumental solo project from John Bassett. “Sun Exile” is the second track released from the upcoming debut album. It has an amazing mix of doom, progressive and ambient elements.
We recently featured Dantalion on Sounds From The Heavy Metal Underground. They have been around since 2006, releasing five albums but have stayed mostly under the radar. If you love chunky and slow death/doom, make sure to check out this tune.
#5. Artist: Faith No More Song: “Motherfucker” Album: ?? (Due Out 2015) Genre: Alternative Metal
Is this the best FNM song ever? No, but at least we finally have new music from the band after sixteen long years. The tune is signature Mike Patton and by the end it gets fairly heavy.
For our money Melana Chasmata is easily one of the best metal albums of the year. Most of the album goes the death/doom route but this particular song is one of a couple that most reminded us of To Mega Therion era Celtic Frost and Hellhammer.
What a straightforward, kick ass crossover song!! This is what party thrash is all about. The band even returned to their hometown of Boston to film this video at some of their old stomping grounds.
Black Crown Initiate dropped one of the year’s best debut metal albums back in September. Now we are getting their second ever music video for one of the more brutal songs on the album. If you have not gotten the chance to check these guys out, make sure you do.
#1. Artist: Napalm Death Song: “Cesspits” Album: Apex Predator – Easy Meat (Due Out 1/27/2015) Genre: Extreme Metal
Finally! New Napalm Death is here and it’s absolutely grindtastic. This may be one of the band’s best songs in quite some time and should have fans clamoring to check out the rest of the album.
