Asphyx debuted the title track of their incoming Incoming Death on Youtube today and it at least its better than the awful Obituary “song” that came out yesterday. The album comes out on September 30th on Century Media Records which even though they put out a lot of Hot Topic crap, take less of a hacksaw to reissues and classic bands than the toilet scrubbers at Relapse or the “commodify everything retro with EZdrummer” philosophy of Nuclear Blast.

Father Befouled, one of the only even semi-competent Incantaclones, have announced on their Funbook page that they will be releasing a new album, Desolate Gods, next year on Dark Descent Records. Hopefully the band has progressed beyond straight imitation of Incantation, Profanatica, and Havohej.

Kaeck released another live video from their set at the Under the Black Sun 2016 festival outside of Berlin this time with slow motion! The cleaner sound than on the record is much appreciated but the band needs to perform live with Oovenmeester instead of one of the mooks from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Relapse Records posted a new track, “Loathe”, from Obituary’s upcoming Ten Thousand Ways to Die album their Bandcamp page. It’s quite bland I assure you.

Metal — in any meaningful version of the word — has been dead for twenty years, but the death keeps accelerating, as if trying to achieve absolute zero of interest for people with souls. This has prompted a number of long-standing metal bands to explore hybrid genres, so they can carry on the spirit of metal in another form.
