DEVOURMENT: Brutal Death Metal Unit Shares "Narcissistic Paraphilia" At Metal Injection's Dank Slams

Obscene Majesty To See Release Via Relapse Next Month

"...a    DEVOURMENT    listening experience is akin to being obliterated like a particle in the Large Hadron Collider and then devoured by a supermassive black hole." -- Metal Injection    Stream / Share DEVOURMENT's "Narcissistic Paraphilia" At    THIS LOCATION    Texas' brutal death metal veterans  DEVOURMENT  are pleased to unleash "Narcissistic Paraphilia" via Metal Injection's Dank Slams. The track comes by way of the band's impending new full-length, Obscene Majesty , set for release via Relapse Records next month.  Comments  DEVOURMENT , "This song focuses on the internal monologue of the archetypal serial killer's psychology. One that is typified by pathological narcissism and auditory hallucinations. The kind that can compel a seemingly mild-mannered person to pursue a life filled with debased violence, mayhem, fear, and death."  Writes Metal Injection, "...a  DEVOURMENT  listening experience is akin to being obliterated like a particle in the Large Hadron Collider and then devoured by a supermassive black hole."

View DEVOURMENT's previously released "Cognitive Sedation Butchery" video via YouTube   HERE    or stream the track    HERE   .   After six long years,  DEVOURMENT  returns to raw form, embodying brutality with  Obscene Majesty . Clubbing blows from tracks like "Cognitive Sedation Butchery," "Narcissistic Paraphilia," and ""A Virulent Strain Of Retaliation" see the veterans as imposing and menacing as ever. Buzzsaw guitars shred through limbs against head-caving, hammering drums. Deathly, blood-soaked vocals personify pain and torture.  Obscene Majesty  is the epitome of uncontrollable destruction from beginning to end, as  DEVOURMENT  crushes through breakneck speeds, deafening ears and melting faces along the way. Focusing on the very elements of gore, death, and mutilation that have crowned the band as kings of the scene for over two decades,  DEVOURMENT  forces you to bear witness to the Obscene Majesty !    Obscene Majesty  will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats August 16th. Physical packages are available for preorder via Relapse.com    HERE   .

Formed in 1995 and hailing from Dallas, Texas,  DEVOURMENT  has remained consistent and powerful throughout several reformations, leading many to celebrate them as the heaviest death metal band in the world due to their influential blend of vicious slam elements with an old-school death metal sound.   DEVOURMENT  took the underground by storm with 1999's landmark  Molesting The Decapitated , released on United Guttural. After dissolving in the early 2000s, they reformed and returned with Butcher The Weak  (self-released in 2005; re-recorded and reissued by Brutal Bands in 2006).  Unleash The Carnivore  was released by Brutal Bands in 2009. On the power of these LPs, and the band's explosive live shows,  DEVOURMENT  soon became one of the most infamous acts in the death metal underground throughout the last decade.  In 2010,  DEVOURMENT  signed to Relapse Records for the eventual release of their fourth album Conceived In Sewage  in 2013. The band teamed with masterful producer Erik Rutan of Hate Eternal and Morbid Angel for the album. Throughout the coming years,  DEVOURMENT  performed at major extreme metal festivals like Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest, and Obscene Extreme, and toured throughout the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia.  For  Obscene Majesty ,  DEVOURMENT  reunited with producer D. Braxton Henry, who played in the band on their infamous track "Babykiller" and helped craft the sound of the band's first three albums. The record also sees founding member Brad Fincher back on drums, Ruben Rosas returning to lead vocals (a formation previously only heard on the legendary  Molesting The Decapitated ), bassist Chris Andrews handling eight-string guitar, and Dave Spencer taking over bass. The pioneers of brutal death metal have sharpened their blades once again and are unleashing some of the most disgustingly heavy slam ever!

LIGHT THIS CITY Announces First European Tour Dates Confirmed For September

[photo by Joe Ellis]  Bay Area melodic death metal outfit LIGHT THIS CITY announces the band's first ever European tour, confirmed for the end of summer, as the band continues to support of their acclaimed Terminal Bloom LP, released last year through Creator-Destructor Records.  Terminal Bloom, LIGHT THIS CITY's first album in a decade, boasts ten tracks that capture their tendency towards extreme melody and intensity, honoring the Swedish sounds of the '90s. Having spent the past decade performing and touring in numerous other bands, the five members of LIGHT THIS CITY have only honed and shaped their skills and musicianship since their 2008-released Stormchaser. Terminal Bloom was recorded from December 2017 through February 2018 with Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Fallujah) at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, as with their previous four albums, and is wrapped in the vibrant cover artwork of Tony Midi.  Following several tours throughout the US and Canada, as well as their first tour of Mexico, and a recent tour of Japan, LIGHT THIS CITY now confirms their maiden trip across the Atlantic. The band's European Bloom Part 1 trek will begin September 12th and run through Germany, Denmark, Holland, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland, coming to an end on September 21st. Watch for additional tour dates to be announced in the months ahead as the band continues to book new ventures.  Drummer Ben Murray states, "We couldn't be more excited to finally bring our thrash attack to Europe! This is just part 1 of our plan to tour Europe, as we'll be announcing another run early next year. If you live in one of these cities, we hope you make it out to one of the shows! It's been fifteen years since we began as a band, and we've wanted to get to Europe the whole time. See you in September!"   See the LIGHT THIS CITY's official video for "Agents Of Fate" and more via YouTube  RIGHT HERE.    Terminal Bloom is available on CD, LP, and digital formats now through Creator-Destructor Records. Find order options at the label webstore  HERE  and Bandcamp where the album is streaming  HERE .

Magazine's Terminal Bloom review included, "The idea of a band coming back from hiatus after so long can be daunting, but LIGHT THIS CITY have returned with more energy than when they left. Terminal Bloom is the record fans of the band have been waiting so long to hear and the ideal situation for a re-emerging artist." Revolver Magazine offered, "Having spent the past ten years recording and touring with various side projects... the death-dealers have no time for playing catch-up; instead, the five-piece get right to the melodic, riff-filled goodness we've been craving since '08." Metal Injection stated, "I was surprised to find that LIGHT THIS CITY have a more varied sound than ever. I worry some will write this band off for their time in the early 2000's metalcore scene, but this album is waaaaaaaaay more than that." Bravewords proclaimed, "Channeling the best Sweden has to offer, specifically a whole lot of Arch Enemy with a healthy dose of At The Gates and The Haunted, along with a sprinkling of UK greatness a la Carcass, into a vicious American assault, LIGHT THIS CITY unleash a serious shit-kicking with these ten new tracks. There aren't enough accolades to bestow upon vocalist Laura Nichol; she's commanding, ferocious, intense, profound. And her band deserves just as much respect!"   https://www.facebook.com/Light-This-City-12498861242     https://www.instagram.com/lightthiscity_official     http://www.creator-destructor.com     http://www.facebook.com/creatordestructorrecords     http://www.twitter.com/CD_Records     http://www.creator-destructor.bandcamp.com

Prime hardcore/punk outlet No Echo has posted an interview with band founder and WAR Records owner Andrew Kline (Strife, World Be Free) alongside the first single, "Beware The Snakes." The interview includes on the track, "Lyrically, 'Beware the Snakes' is like a modern version of 'Don't Tread On Me.' I think we have all had a person in our lives that mistakes your kindness for weakness and tries to take advantage of you because you are always there when they need something from you. This song is about identifying all of the two-faced snakes and cutting them out of your life. Bite back!"   Hear BERTHOLD CITY's "Beware The Snakes" at No Echo at    THIS LOCATION   .

Stream TRYER's  Ei Kuole Koskaan  in its entirety at    THIS LOCATION   .     Ei Kuole Koskaan  is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats.

Finnish melodic hardcore punk collective TRYER is pleased to unveil their Ei Kuole Koskaan full-length today via Suicide Records. Recorded by Mikael Neves and TRYER, mixed by Kurt Ballou of Converge at GodCity Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Weekend Nachos, Nails, Magrudergrind, Wake, Tragedy) at Audiosiege with cover art and layout by Jussi "Hytky" Pohjanen (Amorphis, Hexvessel), Ei Kuole Koskaan thrusts forth eleven tracks, built upon a concrete foundation that combines fast, melodic punk rock, feisty trash-riffs and hardcore aesthetics with a heavy metal twist. The band manages to capture the same intensity that has made them an underground success, known for their staggering live performances delivered with feverish energy.

Stream TRYER's Ei Kuole Koskaan in its entirety at THIS LOCATION.

Ei Kuole Koskaan is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. For orders visit the Suicide Records Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.

In conjunction with the release of Ei Kuole Koskaan, TRYER will play two special record release shows in Helsinki and Tampere respectively with The Queers, Häiriköt, and Lähtevät Kaukajunat, with additional performances in Finland throughout the spring months. See all confirmed dates below.

Forged in 2010, TRYER plays hard and fast hardcore punk with a heavy metal spinkick to the gut. The Finnish four-piece has raced its way through packed and sweaty basement shows to major music festivals such as Provinssi and Ilosaarirock, without ever sacrificing their inherent intensity and commitment to themselves or their audience. Sharing stages with the likes of Raised Fist, Propagandhi, and SNFU, the band has garnered a reputation as one of the greatest live acts in Finland today. You might leave a TRYER-show exhausted or bruised, but you will leave with a smile every time!

LATITUDES: UK Post-Metal Outfit To Release Part Island LP Via Debemur Morti Productions This Friday

Album Streaming At Metal Injection

[photo by Rachel Cheng]  UK-based post-metal outfit  LATITUDES  presents their massive fourth album,  Part Island , through Debemur Morti Productions. The entire LP is streaming at Metal Injection ahead of its official release this Friday.  Part Island  was produced by Chris Fielding (Conan), mastered at Audiosiege (Converge), and bound in amazing artwork from Dehn Sora (Blut Aus Nord).  Alongside their exclusive advance stream of  Part Island , Metal Injection interviewed  LATITUDES about the record, the accompanying write-up of the album declaring, "the group perfects their instrumental formula while delving further than ever into complementary vocal tapestries, resulting in a truly visceral and cathartic journey... the record takes you through perpetually alternating glimpses of internal heaven and hell-with consistently seamless and ingenious dynamic shifts-until the lengthy closing title track acts as a tour-de-force reflection of all that came before it. It's a masterful venture."   Experience LATITUDES'  Part Island  at Metal Injection    RIGHT HERE   .    Part Island  is highly recommended to fans of Alcest, Katatonia, Yob, Radiohead, and Rosetta. Debemur Morti Productions will release the album worldwide on CD, LP, and digital formats this Friday, April 5th. Find preorders at the North American webshop   HERE  , the European webshop  HERE  , and Bandcamp   HERE  .    Part Island  Track Listing:   1. Underlie  2. Moorland Is The Sea  3. Dovestone  4. Fallowness  5. The Great Past  6. Part Island   Part Island  sees  LATITUDES  weaving emotive metallic power and dream-state vulnerability, summoning a new level of melodicism through cast-iron, heartfelt songcraft. Foregrounding vocals appear on every album track for the first time in the band's twelve-year existence, delivering a dynamic collection of epic songs, unashamedly brim-filled with sadness and regret. Helmed by a performance of sheer naked honesty from vocalist Adam Symonds, the record incorporates acoustic guitar, piano and analogue synth within flowing volleys of melodic black metal, weighty contemplative doom and the wide-ranging wistfulness of indie, folk, and shoegaze songwriting.  Political and personal, concerned with the mysteries of love and islands literal and self-created, this is a record about dissolution, leaving, reaching an end without ever truly knowing why.

JESUS PIECE: Kerrang Premieres "Neuroprison" As Only Self Debut LP Nears August Release Through Southern Lord

                                                            [photo by Amy Ha]  Kerrang is hosting a premiere of "Neuroprison," the new single by Philadelphia-based  JESUS PIECE , as the brutal metallic hardcore act prepares for the August release of their  Only Self  debut LP through Southern Lord.   Only Self  was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Lord Mantis) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.  With the "Neuroprison" release,  JESUS PIECE  vocalist Aaron Heard discloses, "To be locked in a Neuroprison is to spend most of the day lost in your head while the world keeps turning around you."  The write-up at Kerrang offers in part, "the United States is producing some of the best hardcore the country ever has. And Philadelphia's Jesus Piece might as well be the poster boys for the movement."   Unleash the new JESUS PIECE track "Neuroprison" at Kerrang  RIGHT HERE .    JESUS PIECE  is quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutalizing grooves of Disembodied, Turmoil, Harm's Way, Xibalba and similar acts, the band incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern production, the eleven new tracks on their  Only Self  debut LP place  JESUS PIECE  among the scene's darkest and heaviest acts and delivers one of the most anxiously-awaited albums of the hardcore/metal underground this year with  Only Self , a record which proves itself as one of the year's most vicious releases.   Southern Lord will release  Only Self  on CD, LP, and digital formats on Friday, August 24th. Find digital preorders at Bandcamp where "Curse Of The Serpent" is streaming  HERE , and physical preorder options  HERE .    JESUS PIECE  has toured mercilessly alongside Darkest Hour, Comeback Kid, Burn, Knocked Loose, Terror, Vein, Year Of The Knife, and many more across North America and Europe over the past year. The band will also make their return to This Is Hardcore in July, performing with the likes of One King Down, Ten Yard Fight, E.Town Concrete, Sick Of It All, Arkagnel, Eighteen Visions, All Out War, Merauder, Harvest, and many more. Watch for new tour dates for  JESUS PIECE  to continually to be announced throughout the year in support of  Only Self .   JESUS PIECE Live:   7/29/2018 The Electric Factory - Philadelphia, PA @ This Is Hardcore [ info ]   JESUS PIECE  is a band that works tirelessly to play to everyone they can. Their anthems lyrically range from personal struggle and loss, to racism, police brutality, and many other social and political injustices. The band formed in 2015 and self-released their first demo/EP in the same year, followed by a self-released EP in the Summer of 2016. Bridge Nine Records released a split 7" between JESUS PIECE  and Malice At The Palace in early 2017. The band has paved their own way into the national scene by booking multiple headlining coast-to-coast tours among many bouts of regional touring and performances at notable festivals including This Is Hardcore, Nature World Fest, Sound And Fury, FYA Fest, and others.   https://twitter.com/jesuspiecehc    https://www.instagram.com/jesuspiecehc    https://jesuspiecehc.bandcamp.com    http://www.southernlord.com    http://southernlord.bandcamp.com    http://twitter.com/twatterlord    https://www.facebook.com/SLadmin
