I shit you not. This has to be the mother of all happy coincidences.
Four days ago we featured a video update from Fleshgod Apocalypse in one of our posts as a teaser to their appearance on this year’s edition of the SUMMER SLAUGHTER tour, and included the news that the band intended to play new songs from their next album on the tour.
Then, the next day we featured a new video of Vader performing in Germany on June 25 and included the news that Nuclear Blast planned to begin streaming a new Vader song on July 15.
And now, Nuclear Blast Europe has just made new songs from each band available for free download! And finally, my slow-as-molasses wireless data card decided to speed up enough that I could actually download the two songs without waiting all day for it to finish. Both of them will blow the top of your head right off into the stratosphere. (more after the jump, including streams of the songs and the download links . . .)
The Vader song is called “Come and See My Sacrifice”. It’s a brutal and brutally fast head-smasher — a vicious combo of rancid tremolo assaults, machine-gun-fast pneumatic riffing, massive-attack drumming, hellish vocals, spit-fire guitar soloing, and some tempo dynamics to boot. I really, really fucking love this song. Really.[audio:https://www.nocleansinging.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/vader_-_come_and_see_my_sacrifice.mp3|titles=Vader – Come and See My Sacrifice]
The Fleshgod Apocalypse Song is called “The Violation”. It launches with a Fleshgodian Apocalyptical symphonic overture, at speed, and that blazing orchestral theme rides right along on top of the insane drum-, bass-, and guitar-onrush that follows. Emerging from the hurricane is a cool, clean whisp of guitar melody and a few bars of effective, soaring clean vocals. But make no mistake, this song is a fucking all-out maelstrom in the inimitable FA style. I fucking love this one, too.[audio:https://www.nocleansinging.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/fleshgod_apocalypse_-_the_violation__edit_.mp3|titles=Fleshgod Apocalypse – The Violation]
