Lets kick this year off with some killer pre-orders from some amazing bands! First up we have the highly anticipated new album from Twitching Tongues titled “Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred” courtesy of Metal Blade Records! Check out the first video/song above titled “Harakiri” then pre-order below! Killer options including rare vinyl colors and shirts!

Twitching Tongues Pre-order

 

The title for Twitching Tongues’ fourth full-length, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, was drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – and it reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate to speak his mind. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. With interconnected parts, musical references and callbacks in each song, everything is tied together in a manner unlike any of their previous releases. At the same time, while maintaining the same levels of hardness and aggression that has characterized their later work, it features much more immediate and memorable melodies, which evoke the sound of In Love There Is No Law yet at the same time feel fresh and new.

 

Next up is “The Banished Heart” from Oceans Of Slumber! Their third album travels into the darker and heavier realm and the first single “The Decay Of Disregard” showcases the band at its best! Listen to the song above then pre-order at the link below…vinyl and exclusive shirts await you!

Oceans Of Slumber Pre-order

A darker, heavier and more elaborate work than Winter, the band’s critically-acclaimed 2015 album, The Banished Heart portrays Oceans Of Slumber as creative souls in the midst of a creative and emotional splurge, lost in the act of venting and purging through some of the deepest and darkest music the metal underground has conjured in years. Although still proudly channelling the melancholy spirit of the late ‘80s/early ‘90s UK death/doom scene, Oceans have evolved and expanded in myriad new directions, embracing a more grandiose aesthetic in tandem with an enhanced sense of emotional volatility and rawness. Epic by design and in execution, but acutely personal and intimate on a conceptual level, the songs on The Banished Heart showcase a refined musical vision from a band with nothing but honesty and honor in their souls.

 

 

Last and certainly not least is the new album from Primordial titled “Exile Amongst the Ruins” courtesy of Metal Blade Records! Check out the new song/video for “Stolen Years” above and pre-order at the link below! Tons of options including a 5×10″ deluxe vinyl package!

Primordial Pre-order

2018 marks the twenty-seventh year of Primordial’s seminal career, and returning with their ninth full-length, “Exile Amongst the Ruins,” they have lost none of their vitality. Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014’s “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” is a more raw, “old school sounding” record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as “a direct energy” and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of Celtic folk and black metal like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that “Exile Amongst the Ruins” is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.
