What’s up? It’s your ol’ boy Waldo here, to inform you about some new and upcoming releases—good, bad, or otherwise. Remember, I’m not an elitist, you just have terrible taste. Sanguisugabogg is releasing Homicidal Ecstasy, continuing the “slammy” fun that the previous LP Tortured Whole was. Man, this band is a blast. Slam bands have been circulating in the underground for years now and it’s great to see one finally get recognized by one of the bigger labels. All the hallmarks of a slam band are here: death metal growls, fast, pingy snare, and breakdowns. Although Sanguisugabogg (damn, that na ..read more

Welcome back to The Lazarus Pit, a look back at should-be classic records that don’t get nearly enough love. Today we’re looking at Drowningman’s 1999 full-length debut, Busy Signal at the Suicide Hotline. It was a good time for metalcore, and it was a good time for Hydra Head Records; the more forward-thinking bands of this ilk were all converging around the label, putting out extremely quality releases that did everything right, from the artwork to the runtimes. And Busy Signal at the Suicide Hotline most certainly gets everything right, even though it’s not talked about as much as your We A ..read more

Emerging from the wretched mid-Atlantic hive of scum and villainy known as Richmond, Virginia, mathcore stalwarts Black Matter Device have been carving a destructive swath over the musical landscape for the past several years. Combining the stark anti-melodies of bands like Psyopus and the Dillinger Escape Plan but with a polished modern edge and a grindcore mentality (short songs), Black Matter Device proudly bring the genre of mathcore back from the brink of obscurity and into the current spotlight with a string of abrasive albums, most recently Autonomous Weapons, released this past April ..read more

You can’t really question a band’s dedication to metal, if in order to pursue their musical passions/dreams, they leave everything in their lives behind and immigrate to another country. That’s the story that Iranian quintet Out of Nowhere—Amin Yahyazadeh (vocals), Ali Mostanbet (guitars), Kasra Jafarzadeh (guitars), Hamid Shahcheraghi (bass), Soroosh Kheradmand (drums)—tell in the video for their new track, “Dying Sun.” The song is the first new music the band has recorded since pulling up stakes in Mashhad, Iran and moving to Turkey, and it chronicles both their literal journey as well as th ..read more

Video Premiere: Disquiet (ft. Vicky Psarakis) – “Wrecked”
Decibel Magazine » Metalcore
by Adem Tepedelen

Riding an opening riff straight outta Metallica’s Load/Unload era, Dutch quintet Disquiet show their collective musical hand in the first minute of their new video for “Wrecked.” The tune bounces from progressive Bay Area thrash to melodic death metal, with some power metal acrobatics, as well. And when they say “featuring” in regard to the Agonist vocalist Vicky Psarakis’ guest appearance, they ain’t kidding. She handles the bulk of the lead vocals on the tune, doing both clean and growled vocals alongside Disquiet frontman Sean Maia. “Wrecked” is the second single released from Disquiet’s t ..read more
