On February 24th, Six Feet Under returns with their 12th studio album, Torment, and a new leap in intensity. There’s plenty of classic Six Feet Under groove to be had on Torment, but fans will note a much more aggressive approach, and even more blast beats throughout. This is a cantankerous Six Feet Under with absolutely nothing to prove. This is Six Feet Under at their most deadly.
I wrote in my Ophidian Spell review that I love watching a band rise from humble beginnings. To restate what I’ve said, I’ve been lucky to watch Nails, Ghost, and a few others start from a single Facebook page and demo early demos to the juggernauts they are in the wider spectrum of heavy music. Omnium Gatherum, one of Finland’s quintessential melo death bands, are no newcomers to the genre, but with the release of Grey Heavens, it seems they’re finally getting an ever-increasing amount of attention.
Following the 2015 Sensory Records release of their debut album, The Great Lie, France’s epic metal opera collective, MELTED SPACE, has issued special remixed versions of several tracks from the album through a new digital EP, titled Remix Remodel, which is now streaming Additionally, an official video for the revamped version of the track “Titania” has been completed, and is playing.
Last month, Swedish blues rock collective CAPTAIN CRIMSON released their delightfully riff-laden Remind full-length via Small Stone. A genuine testament to the timeless power of groove and of memorable choruses that take you back to when you felt such things deep in your soul, CAPTAIN CRIMSON manifest the kind of rock and roll that speaks to the essence of the form. In commemoration of its release, Decibel is pleased to bring fans the visual companion to Remind; the super boogie, road rager “Love Street“.
Puscifer, who play both the Aftershock and Voodoo Festivals later this month, premiere the video for “The Arsonist” via The A.V. Club (avclub.com/article/exclusive-its-maynard-james-keenan-and-puscifer-vs-244313). The animated clip finds Keenan and his bandmates joined by a special group of female fighters as they take on Trumpzilla.
Five Finger Death Punch has unveiled the video for their next single “I Apologize,” worldwide on Vevo today. Culled from their sixth studio album, Got Your Six, the chilling clip follows Ivan Moody through a cemetery housing our era’s most notable deceased rock icons, ranging from Elvis to Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse to Jimi Hendrix. The clip was shot at Los Angeles’ famed Angelus Rosedale Cemetery with Nathan Cox directing the band-conceived storyline.
