I took a break from my work this morning to take a quick look for new music that might be interesting, and I found some songs that I thought were worth recommending. I still don’t have much time to myself, so once again I’m not able to write quite as much about the music as I normally do. I realize it won’t sound as good without me explaining why it sounds good, but somehow, you will have to make do.


The Greek band Tardive Dyskinesia, who I’ve been following for a very long time, just released a new single named “The Electric Sun“, and it comes with a video. It’s one of 10 songs the band are developing for a new album that they’re projecting for release at the end of this year. Continue reading »

Brothers of the Sonic Cloth


I’ve commented before about the enormous flood of stream premieres, new album announcements, label signings, and other metal news that has been unleashed since the beginning of the year. But yesterday may have reached new heights of ridiculousness in terms of the number of noteworthy things I saw in a single day.

In fact, yesterday brought so damned much cool stuff that I’d either have to write a half-dozen posts or do what I’m doing here instead — just funneling streams, links, artwork, and news blurbs your way with a minimum of commentary. The bands are presented in alphabetical order — all 18 of them. In most cases, you can enlarge the cover art and photos by clicking on the images in this post. Continue reading »

Here are short features about two bands whose music is definitely worth getting to know. The first of these “featurettes” comes our way via regular NCS writer TheMadIsraeli, who sent in the following introduction:

“I was surfing Facebook and saw that Infant Annihilator had posted a song by the band above.  If you can’t read the logo, the band’s name is Thy Devourer.  Thy Devourer hail from Alabama of all places, total fucking Hicksville to some; yet they deliver some of the most punishing technical deathcore you’ll ever hear all year.  They take a pretty visceral approach that hits me like a combo of Whitechapel, Carnifex, and Fallujah.  Definitely cool shit.

Interesting also, at least on this EP, is their preference for more grindcore length songs.  I believe only one of the four songs on here is even up to three minutes.

Bandcamp player streaming below, AND it’s free.  Enjoy the carnage.” Continue reading »
