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.

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.

Vader: “Come and See My Sacrifice”

Fleshgod Apocalypse: “The Violation”


  1. OH MY FUCK.

    FA just graped my ear holes.

  2. I was underwhelmed by the FA song… it was good, it was FA, but I think I might’ve missed something. I’m gonna’ pick up the album regardless though.

    Honestly, I’m not sure if I’ve ever given a good listen to Vader. I tried listening to that recording you posted, but I couldn’t make anything out, I don’t know, maybe it’s cuz I don’t know their music that well. This song was pretty good though, I might look into them more.

  3. Well, spank Phro’s ass and call him Sally, ’tis a good day indeed. I’m so glad I was so bored enouh to haul the computer in to work today.

    According to the file name, the FA song is an edit. Meaning it’s only a part of the awesomeness that will grace the album.

    • Yeah, I noticed that after I finished the post. If this is an edit, the full song has got to be even more amazing. I’ll see if I can find some news to see why Nuclear Blast posted a shortened version of the full song (if that’s what this really is).

      • I’ve noticed that a lot of the songs they offer online are edits, but I’m glad that they’ve stopped putting the songs in zip files (which really only shaves a handful of kilobytes off the download). Now if only they (and honestly, most others) would also make sure the id3 tags have something in them – and that they’re correct.

        • That would be nice, wouldn’t it? But honestly, I’m just so pathetically grateful for these songs that they could tag the files with Rebecca Black and I’d be cool with it.

  4. That FA song is sounding AMAZING! Thanks so much for making today a good day!

    Awesome website btw, I regularly visit it, but dont really comment, but just thought I had to say thanks 😉

  5. Holy fucking drums! The first 30 seconds of the FA track is a percussive assault on the senses. God damn, that guy can play.
