Out this Friday is a new album on Relapse Records by Richland, Washington’s The Drip called The Haunting Fear Of Inevitability
and when you have an album title with more than seven syllables, they mean business. This is the business you’ve been looking for to begin 2017 in a niec manner so check out the first video made for it in the form of “Blackest Evocation”. You can pre-order The Haunting Fear Of Inevitability
below via Amazon.com. Break out the Spudnuts for these guys.
Relapse Records have another scorcher on their hands and this one is a pure juicer. This one comes from Magrudergrind, whose new album will be out on February 12th called Sacrificial Hire
. They’ve made a video for the title track and as you will hear, their complex hybrid of influences is enough to make your brain explode, even if the video lasts only 105 seconds.
Magrudergrin’s new album will not be out until February but after hearing just this one song, this may become one of my favorite albums of the year It has been six years since Magrudergrin released an album but now they’re about to come out with II
and “Sacrificial Hire” shows what they have developed into.
They’re a little bit punk, they’re a little bit grind’n’roll, and they are a nice bit of thrash. They are Australian, I can tell you that but I can also tell you this: their name is King Parrot. It’s from their forthcoming EP Dead Set, to be out very soon on Agonia Records. Vinyl junkies will be able to purchase in three different variations, which you can read about here or you can get them digitally, in the virtual world (i.e. MP3’s) or CD.
Australian thrash metal/punk/grindcore band King Parrot were at SXSW’s this week for a bit of schmoozing but they’re now on tour throughout North America to hype up the release of theor forthcoming EP Dead Set (Agonia). It will be released in the U.S. on May 19th while Europe will get it a few days earlier on May 15th. Vinyl versions of the album will be made available in three different variations:

If you know of the name Ron Mortuary Grinder, you may know it for his time with ASHIAIP, Purulent Shitface, or Feasting Blood. This time, Grinder is handling things on his own with a one-man grindcore project and he calls himself Corpse Eater. This German artist had taken time in December and January to put together some raw and rugged music before he came up with enough to release a full album. It’s called Start To Mutilate, 15 songs where the longest one is just under 90 seconds, so you’ll be in and out of this like bacteria. The closing track is a Cannibal Corpse of “A Skull Full Of Maggots”. He also says CD and cassette versions will be released by Rotten Raw Records and Stench Of Carnage respectively, with each limited to only 50 copies.
