Arkansas' backwoods doomsayers RWAKE awaken from their slumber and unleash their long-awaited new album Rest. Their first new material in over 4 years, Rest is less a set of songs than a perpetually evolving, deeply emotional set of missives heralding the end of times. Rest is nothing short of epic, and not only one of 2011?s finest albums but one of the finest progressive/doom/sludge metal records ever.
Sonoran Sun (Translucent Yellow) LP
Arizona newcomers GATECREEPER deliver 9 monstrous songs of low-end, old-school death metal on their savage debut album Sonoran Depravation. Having devastated the underground since their formation less than three years ago, GATECREEPER now unleash their first full-length, produced by Ryan Bram at Homewrecker Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) at GodCity Studios. Sonoran Depravation tears and chugs through 30+ minutes of crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower.
Death Revenge Death Revenge
Death metal powerhouse Dying Fetus return with their long-awaited new record War of Attrition.
Masterminded by guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher and his hand picked kill-team, War of Attrition advances the band's devastating assault and destroys everything in its path. From the first song to the last, the patented 'Fetus combination of punishing slam riffs, frenzied guitar work, and utterly savage dual-vocal assault and overpowers the listener. War of Attrition reaches an altogether new and focused level of brutality for Dying Fetus, and expands and cements the legendary status of this renowned US metal institution.
Retaining the vicious, dual-vocal attack and slamming grooves that have become their trademark, Dying Fetus' Stop at Nothing is a savage return-to-form by one of the most influential bands in death metal. Intensity unparalleled, and musical power unrivaled, Dying Fetus are the leaders of the new generation in extreme music.
