Featuring Thomas Erak of The Fall of Troy. If you consider yourself a fan of aforementioned band, I'd be incredibly surprised if you weren't already aware of this new project. Gone are the head spinning riffs and aggressive motifs, which have been abandoned for more rock sensibilities and song writing. Doesn't exactly sound appealing to an average TFoT fan, and it's probably more-or-less what you'd expect. However, there's still a few gems on this album, especially "The Circulatory System" (live footage above taken by my friend and former band-mate, Nick), ''Epiphany," and "No Friend of Mine," along with a couple other moments which are more reminiscent of older material.

Just Like Vinyl's new album, "Black Mass," premieres August 28th.

Murder Construct - Results

Featuring Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation), Leon del Muerte (Exhumed, ex-Intronaut, ex-Impaled, ex-Phobia), Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, ex-Jesu), and Caleb Schneider (Bad Acid Trip). Obviously not a release to miss, given the all-star lineup and Ryan's infamous vocal styling.

The album is available now on Bandcamp.

Crown the Liar - Dead World Anthology

Dead World Anthology cover art

It's encouraging to see great mathcore bands still emerging so long after the genre's inception, and Crown the Liar is no exception. Their sophomore EP is a more polished work, and far more intense.

Chaz Bell of An Isle Ate Her (B_C_M's #1 release of 2011) also lends his tortured and frantic yelps to the track Crow's Throat.

Gaza - The Truth Weighs Nothing

"It sure was nice of Jesus to take time away from ignoring 
Ethnic cleansing genocide and famine bloated children.
Or regrowing limbs for landmine victims
To help you score that touchdown
To help you find your keys
To help you land that promotion.
Is it that he can't? Or is it that he won't?
Wake up. Wake the fuck up.
The truth weighs nothing. Travel light, be unburdened."

Decibel is currently streaming the new Gaza track here.

Crown the Liar - Dead Tooth Grime

Georgia's Crown the Liar seems to have significantly stepped up their game with this new track. Really liking the direction they're heading, as it's reminiscent of The Number 12 Looks Like You and Heavy Heavy Low Low.

Their new EP, ''Dead World Anthology'', drops July 21st.

Happy Birthday, B_C_M!

Today this blog is one year old. Yippy.

I tried to find a reasonably amusing birthday meme, but instead landed upon this:
