Agoraphobic Nosebleed-Arc


Happy Saturday and infernal hails to one and all. Yesterday, those who care about such things will have noticed that I didn’t post any year-end lists nor did I post a new installment of our 2015 Most Infectious Song list. This doesn’t mean that those year-end series have reached an end. I just got diverted by my fucking day job before I could get them done. I’m shocked, simply shocked, that some people expect me to work for what I’m paid.

We actually are nearing the end of our 2015 LISTMANIA series. I have in hand three lists from current or former members of our staff. I will post those on Monday and Tuesday. I might receive a couple more between now or then from people who told me they planned to send them in. Either way, we’ll finally finish the year-end list extravaganza by the middle of next week. As for the Most Infectious Song roll-out, I’ll catch up on Friday’s omission later today today and then resume the roll-out on Monday.

I’ve also got a lot of new music and videos I plan to throw at you this weekend, beginning with this post and continuing with one tomorrow. This post includes one new song and three new videos, all of which appeared yesterday — and thanks to DGR for alerting me to them. Because my fucking day job is compelling me to work even today, I don’t have time to introduce these with my usual garbled verbiage (please hold your applause). Somehow, you’ll have to figure out what these sound and look like on your own.

The new song is “Deathbed”. It comes from the band’s new EP Arc, which will be released January 22 by Relapse. It premiered at Metal Sucks.







Exmortus-Ride Forth


The song is “Relentless”. It’s from the band’s new album Ride Forth, which was released yesterday by Prosthetic. It also premiered at Metal Sucks. The video was filmed live at the Gramercy Theater in Manhattan last year.







Fuck the Facts


The song is “Everywhere Yet Nowhere”. It comes from the band’s latest album, Desire Will Rot, which was released via Noise Salvation last August. The new video premiered at Invisible Oranges.









The song is “Sacrificial Hire”. It’s from the band’s new album II, which Relapse plans to release on February 12. The video premiered at Loudwire.



  1. That ANb is sounding absolutely insane. Could be the EP of the year for me.

  2. Oh man that Agoraphobic Nosebleed was a real treat this morning.

  3. I’m liking that Agoraphobic song a lot…not their usual jam, but it was groovy as all hell! =]

    • When this EP was first announced, the press release explained that this would be the first in a series of four AnB EPs, and that each one “will represent the musical influences and tastes of each member”. This first one represents the influences of Kat Katz, which is why it doesn’t sound like their usual jam.

  4. I’ve been jamming the Exmortus leak on YouTube and it totally kicks ass! It will definitely be on my 2016 list for sure!

  5. First 4 minutes of the AgN song put me to sleep. The last 4 minutes gave me a boner!
