Sh*t That Comes Out Today – May 13th, 2022
New music is flying off the shelves and tour schedules are picking up — have you fully planned out your hot girl summer? Get some inspiration from this weeks newest heavy releases…
A Call To Arms (Unique Leader)
Now signed to the notorious Unique Leader, death metal veterans Jungle Rot make no sign of wavering or slowing down with their newest release A Call To Arms. Infusing their new album with their trademark thrash, death, and crust punk styles, the band are sure to draw comparisons to the likes of Deicide and Exhumed, whether you like it or not. This one is another solid banger in their lengthy history of consistent heaviness. Check out their latest album for a dose of death metal done right.
Phototroph (Pure Noise)
The third full-length Moon Tooth album, Phototroph, is how I imagine the life of a psychedelic mushroom is like. Lyrically exploring the premise of overlaying the microcosms of existence all around us onto our own experiences and journeys. Truly trippy, the band’s gritty and raw vocals intertwined with proggy techno-colored originality and intensity are what hold this band together. This one’s been dubbed the band’s most complete portrait to date, and it’s jam-packed with everything that makes them so distinctive and intriguing.
Insurmountable EP (Closed Casket)
Disturbing, bleak, and unrelenting — Primitive Man have combined all the right ingredients for your internalized anguish and despair with their new EP, Insurmountable. The band bring together harsh vocals and grinding guitars with desolate noise and open-ended gloom, creating a sense of dark and warped tranquility. This new EP will give listeners the perfect antidote to the infuriatingly sunny, positive summer days ahead.
Visions Of Atlantis
When a band makes music like this, what do they envision their fans doing while they listen? Drinking? Playing DnD? Sitting around at the Renaissance Fair? All of the aforementioned at the same time? At the degree of fantasy attained by Visions Of Atlantis, it’s not just discourse — it’s your new identity as a pirate developing before you. Pirates is one long, maladaptive daydream wrapped in driving, symphonic vocals and more intricate song compositions than the band has previously showcased. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a pirate (and not the ones off the coast of Indonesia), then consider giving it a spin.
Complete Control (Century Media)
Finally, Misery Index have written their chill, peaceful album. No, we kid, it’s pummeling death metal with contempt for the puppet masters of the world. Sure, one could argue that this is the same subject matter Misery Index have always tackled, but real talk, when the riffs are this fucking cool, does it matter? Meet the soundtrack to your bad mood.
