Lets kick this year off with some killer pre-orders from some amazing bands!

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.

Once again waking from their post-victory slumber, Amon Amarth are due to return with their most monstrous and spectacular album to date. A tour-de-force of cinematic melodic metal that combines the best of the genre’s traditional wing with modern heft and heart, Jomsviking is a concept piece inspired by the elite Viking mercenaries of its title, conceived and written by Johan Hegg. “Deceiver of the Gods was very successful for us and we had a good run with that and did some really great tours,” says Hegg. “Even before we changed drummers for this record we had the idea to make a concept album. It was something we’d never done before and it gave us a challenge. I started writing the story, went into it wholeheartedly and once you start going down that path there’s really no turning back.”

Metal Blade Records has two new amazing pre-orders! TYR and GWAR are both coming out with highly anticipated albums so be sure to snag both.

GWAR’s latest audio blood bath “Battle Maximus” is expected to ship on or around September 12, 2013 and you can choose from the standalone CD or some killer logo shirt bundles!

01. Intro
02. Madness at the Core of Time
03. Bloodbath
04. Nothing Left Alive
05. They Swallowed the Sun
06. Torture
07. Raped at Birth
08. I, Bonesnapper
09. Mr. Perfect
10. Battle Maximus
11. Triumph of the Pig Children
12. Falling
13. Fly Now

“Battle Maximus” was conceived and recorded over the last year at the bands self-operated Slave Pit Studios, and was mixed by veteran metal producer Glen Robinson and mastered by the matchless Howie Weinberg. It features twelve brand-new tracks of sonic sedition guaranteed to make even the most hardened GWAR fans head explode, merely by looking at the packaging. With songs like “Madness at the Core of Time”, “Torture”, and “They Swallowed the Sun”, the album not only tells the next chapter in the never-ending story of GWAR, but also stands as a tribute to the band’s long-time guitar player, the incomparable Flattus Maximus, who left Earth and returned to the cosmos to fulfill his glorious destiny almost two years ago.

Rather than attempt to emulate the un-matchable sound of Flattus, who had led the band from the depths of clown-rock to the elite tier of top-notch metal acts with a series of bone-crushing recordings starting with 2000’s “Violence Has Arrived”, Oderus and company struck out in a bold new direction. Enlisting the aid of Pustulus Maximus, cousin of Flattus, who wrested the right to join forces with GWAR after waging the epic “Battle Maximus”, GWAR has created one of their most awe-inspiring albums to date, one that is sure to join the ranks of “Scumdogs of the Universe” and “Lust in Space”, as the ultimate expressions of GWAR’s contempt for modern society and the hypocrisy and horror of a world gone mad.

Next up is TYR’s highly anticipated album “Valkyrja”! Their seventh studio album ships on or around September 12th, 2013. Choose from some awesome bundles including vinyl and shirts!

DOUBLE-LP
—————–
SIDE A
01. Blood of Heroes
02. Mare of My Night
03. Hel Hath No Fury
04. The Lay of Our Love

SIDE B
05. Nation
06. Another Fallen Brother
07. Grindavísan
08. Into the Sky

SIDE C
09. Fánar Burtur Brandaljóð
10. Lady of the Slain
11. Valkyrja

SIDE D
12. Where Eagles Dare
13. Cemetery Gates

Valkyrja, the 7 full-length album from the Faroe Islands natives TÝR, is a concept album with a story line based loosely around an anonymous Viking age warrior who leaves his woman and goes off to impress the Valkyrie on the battlefield so that she may bring him to Valhalla, or to Fólkvangr, the home of Freyja—the goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. One can say the album is also indirectly about women and how they affect men and what men will do to impress and obtain women. Frontman and founder Heri Joensen goes on to explain; “the woman that the warrior leaves may represent the earthly women. Freyja, The Lady Of The Slain, may represent the perfection of Women, and the Valkyrie is the link between the two, taking men from earthly to godly women.”
