For the last two years Foul Body Autopsy has been walking the dusty roads of a world in the rotting grip of the undead. Inspired by the classic zombie films of George E. Romero Tom Reynoldsbrought us the This Machine Kills Zombies album and follow up EP The Unquiet Dead, riff driven masterpieces of melodic death that took us from the first broken casket, through the screams and bloodshed , to the endless silence of a planet devoid of life. Now we reach the final page of this epic story, the concluding words before this volume of the Foul Body Autopsy saga is over.

Purified Ready To Reclaim originally appeared on the This Machine Kills Zombies album, but it has now been completely reworked and reimagined to create the perfect coda to Foul Body Autopsy’s years amongst the dead. This new single version features real drums, courtesy of Alex Micklewright, along with keyboards, synths, acoustic guitar and a wonderfully atmospheric final touch of piano from Aaron Bright. Tom Reynolds has also re-recorded all his vocals and guitar parts – the guitars benefitting from the added power of Blackstar amplification who now endorse Tom. Bringing that finishing touch of magic to this new single is Russ Russell, the noted producer applying his mixing and mastering skills to this lavish rebirth.

Purified Ready To Reclaim will be released on May 20th, a date that just so happens to coincide with Tom Reynolds birthday; a fitting gift to himself from the man labelled “a fucking riff machine” by Angry Metal Guy. So join us for a last walk through the kingdom of the dead, before we turn out the lights forever.

Today Foetal Juice are proud to announce a prestigious US premiere for their latest lyric video, which accompanies the second single from their forthcoming album, GluttonyDecibel Magazine present ‘Metamorphosis‘, a fiercely focussed assault that captures the astounding levels of power and speed that Foetal Juice have harnessed on their new album. As the band have said Gluttony is “a lot faster, heavier and much more aggressive, both musically and lyrically, than anything we have previously written” and nowhere is that more apparent than in the wake of the savage riffs of ‘Metamorphosis’.

You’ll also be able to read a little about the thoughts behind the riffs and the ideas that the band have explored in the track lyrically…
“Essentially, it’s about anger boiling over when we see the selfishness of man.”

For fifteen years Foetal Juice have been carving their path through the underground, armed with black humour and sonic intensity, a death metal machine grinding the opposition into the mud, blood and bile – and they show no signs of stopping yet!

Foetal Juice premiere their new lyric video for ‘Metamorphosis’ with Decibel Magazine! New album Gluttony out June 12th!

The vast kingdom of the solitary hunter lies within and without, a landscape of thick, soft darkness and mazes laid upon mazes, an ever-changing labyrinth. The shadows of this world lap like waves against the walls of our minds, slowly eroding our defences with timeless patience. For those with broken walls, trapped in cells, bound in restraints, their blood awash with poisons dressed as medicines, the tides of night soon flood in, like the sea over balustrades of sand. A blessing and a curse, the invasive dark brings freedom from confinement and the thorns of healing while stealing all hope of return to a world once loved. The broken are free to run for the hunter, dying a thousand times on the barbed points of his arrows, but always rising to run the maze once more, leaving their shell to the indignities of care and preservation…

Shadowflag have always stalked the hinterlands of black metal, striding with gritted teeth into the face of the storm. They bring rare imagination and a poetic spirit to their fearsome creations, walking hand in hand with accepted convention only when it happens to run parallel to their path. From the grand ambition of their self-titled debut to the cold terror of 2017s The Delusion Machine, Shadowflag have proven themselves to be a band without limitations, a band that stands alone. After three years of labour they are now ready to present their latest beast, carved from the essence of insanity, In Asylum Requiem. The fourth Shadowflag album is perhaps their most formidable and forbidding; each song resolute in purpose and relentless in delivery. Yet for all the freezing fury, the rush of blackness is punctuated with diamonds of unique cut, moments of that unmistakeable Shadowflag magic. Songs like ‘From Agony To Cold’ perfectly define everything that Shadowflag are. They have a sound and signature that is all their own and this has never been more apparent than when wandering the complex passageways of In Asylum Requiem.

On June 19th Clobber Records will open the floodgates and release the cold, deep waters of In Asylum Requiem to drown the world in dreams of madness. Drink deep from the deluge and open your minds to the numberless possibilities of Shadowflag.

Formicarius Head To Malta With New Guitar Playthrough

Exploding from the darkness of the underground come Inverted Matter, a potent new force in death metal with a debut album of shocking intensity and monstrous power. Detach features nine finely crafted songs that bind together furious brutality, crushing heaviness, absorbing atmosphere and vicious, unforgettable hooks. This album will leave you dazed and disturbed, with the taste of death in your mouth.

More than just another new band on the scene, Inverted Matter are driven by the soul-shaking drum onslaught of Michael Smith, a true death metal legend. Smith provided the genre defining blasts behind Suffocation’s masterpieces Human WasteEffigy Of The ForgottenBreeding The SpawnSouls To Deny and more. His unmistakeable beats now thunder beneath the staggering riffs, wicked solos and imperious vocals that characterise the superb songs that form Detach. Ruthlessly injecting their rampant creativity with the genetic matter of classic Morbid AngelImmolation and Suffocation, Inverted Matter have created a monster that is driven to dominate and destroy.

When Lethal Scissor Records’ tireless search through the catacombs of the underground uncovered this slumbering beast, they knew they had found something beautifully twisted and infinitely dangerous. Prepare to welcome your new overlords and let the killing begin!

COMATOSE MUSIC sign Houston’s most brutal band – ARCHITECTURAL GENOCIDE!

Less than a year after the release of their full length debut album, Topheth Ablaze, the faceless fiends of Plague Pit have returned. This time they bring with them a four track EP of unspeakable horrors, a collection of songs that hunger for your soul, whose malice and bitter hatred radiates from every note. Labyrinthine is a gateway to hell and to listen to these howling invocations of chaos is to welcome the essence of darkness into your heart.
 Since the soulless entities of Plague Pit first made their pact unto each other in 2016 their legend has been spreading like poison through the deepest reaches of the underground. The madness of Topheth Ablaze was passed in whispers, but now the whispers will become screams as the terror of Labyrinthine is unleashed. Binding sounds inspired by the death metal gods to visions of towering terror with chains of arcane knowledge, the dwellers of the Plague Pit have created a release of staggering power and insurmountable force. This is twisted, grotesque death metal of the blackest kind, a bestial roar of unearthly rage.

Plague Pit are the nameless devils of your nightmares, the unseen adversaries who leave you paralyzed with fear and Labyrinthine is an all out assault on your sanity. Plague Pit do not exist for your entertainment, they exist to consume you. These warped riffs, howling solos and relentless, battering drums are an open invitation to your end. There is no disguise and no pretence, just a seething mass of hatred, driven to destroy .
