After The Burial
After The Burial
An uninhibited eight-stringed dual barrage of frenetic riffs and dynamic chord
progression is exactly what the crushing new AFTER THE BURIAL delivers with
pinpoint precision. This highly anticipated new offering is quickly going to raise the
bar for all others within the metal genre as this group effectively unleashes a frenzy of
jaw-dropping dual guitar dynamics that is backed by a captivating energy and groove
resulting in an overall unrelenting output of punishment. This Minnesota quintet is
hell-bent on forging their own unique path within the extreme metal genre and they
are well on their way to that very goal.

This is an extreme metal hybrid that is a voracious assault on all the senses forcing
your brain to fire on all cylinders in order to process the amount of material that is
currently being pounded into your ears. This is thinking man's metal and it's not for
the weak minded.

The tech-wizardry is amped way up, the breakdowns are massive and face-melting
and the vocal delivery is the most devastating yet. Already lauded for their technically
impressive yet well structured style of songwriting, AFTER THE BURIAL certainly
takes things up a notch or two with this newest outing. Each track will keep you on
your toes guessing what might possibly be next in this never-ending array of intensity.
This is essentially a roller coaster of unconventionality, so strap yourself in tight and
prepare for a wild ride.
Emmure
Emmure
There's little to be said about Emmure that wasn't bestowed upon them with their first release, Goodbye to the Gallows. The band has kept its patented hellbrand of unbridled metal partnered with lyrics of revenge and issues with the opposite sex. What no one expected was that for one of the heaviest bands to blast Victory Records in recent years, things were about to get a lot weightier, and that was something to get people talking again.

Just over a year after the highly successful Gallows hit shelves, the world is at the mercy of Emmure once again. It's with an almost-unspeakable sense of volatility that the band has stormed back in a warpath full of fresh topics that didn't get their due on the first record. This new time bomb, The Respect Issue, is making up for lost time.

While the album is not Gallows part deux, Palmeri didn't want to stray too far from the unhinged chaos and "uncompromising, brutal honesty" of the first album and those who connected with it. Guitarists Ben Lionetti and Jesse Ketive still shred with the same furor, Joe Lionetti bashes skins in a familiar urgency, and bassist Mark Davis lays down the foundation with seasoned precision. Now, the tracks are shrouded in a crushing wet blanket that takes The Respect Issue to a darker, yet more illuminating, level of metal advancement.

Just when one has the most notorious metal live acts out of Connecticut pegged, a curveball is thrown to keep fans wanting more. The mosh-drenched anthems provide a soundtrack for the most intense, unforgettable shows ever witnessed, and has been the integral part to Emmure's rabid fan base. "If it weren't for the great tours we've done, I don't think we would have had even a fraction of the success we've had," Palmeri said of jaunts with bands such as Darkest Hour, August Burns Red, and Misery Signals.

This much-anticipated record will not only meet the expectations of those craving it, but is the kind of metal record to draw in every kind of music aficionado. The movement Emmure started with Goodbye to the Gallows will not be repeated with The Respect Issue – it will be escalated. Say you heard of them last year, because their world domination is only a breakdown away.
Fit For A King
Fit For A King
Fit For A King is a five-piece Metalcore outfit from Tyler, Texas. A driven attitude, creative minds and a "do it yourself" mentality has quickly set them apart among other bands on the independent circuit. Fit For A King is now touring full time in the U.S has been making a strong internet presence between the "MySpace era" and now. The band released their first full length record in September 2011 called "Descendants." Along with the album came the music video "Ancient Waters" which has broke out to 500,000 + view on YouTube.
Fit For An Autopsy
Fit For An Autopsy
Corrupt politicians, manipulative mainstream media, government surveillance, mass shootings, clean water shortages, religious warfare, aggressive agribusiness, climate change, GMOs and a whole host of mind-numbing problems certainly make it feel like humankind is "going to hell in a hand basket," as they say. There may be nothing that can be done about it at this point. But at least we have a killer soundtrack.

Fit For An Autopsy's Hellbound is the perfect score with which to watch the flames rise. Punishing, unrelenting and alternately both heavy and dissonant, the New Jersey metal band's first album for Good Fight/eOne conjures visions of Nero vigorously attacking his fiddle, even as Rome was engulfed in fire all around him. Esteemed English actor Michael Caine delivers perhaps the best line in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy: "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

Death metal often chooses to deal in devils, demons and horror-movie inspired gore. "Deathcore" detours into broken relationships and introspective issues, much like its scene cousins in Metalcore and alt-rock. Fit For An Autopsy blaze their own path, opting to address the dirty, gritty and grimy reality of modern day life. There's no fantasy, no plaintive odes to lost love. This music is hell. These songs are Hellbound.

Scene queens, careerist cartoons and poseur-iffic hacks best step aside when confronted with the self-assured, art-for-art's-sake vibe of Fit For An Autopsy. As MetalSucks observed early on: "The band's brutal, glowering take on [deathcore] reminded [us] of the squandered potential of the genre. Hardcore grooves and swagger, when incorporated correctly, blend quite well with death metal."

On Hellbound, Fit For An Autopsy expand upon their commanding approach to an often maligned subgenre by synthesizing the rhythmic experimentalism of Gojira, the aggressive post-Noisecore of Converge, the esoteric and meditative tribalism of Isis, a virulent dose of the New Wave Of Swedish Death Metal (At The Gates, Dark Tranquility, early In Flames), the legendary progenitors of Floridian death metal (Death, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Obituary) and the "deathcore" acts who offer actual proficiency in the genre (Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish, Whitechapel).

Each nuanced building block is meticulously assembled together to form a near-perfect modern metal masterpiece, all with the confident vibe of a group of people making the music they want to make for its own sake, trends and "hype" be damned.


There was justifiable reason to be excited about Fit For An Autopsy from the start. The rich pedigree of its core members foreshadowed the momentous music that was to come. Nate Johnson's stint fronting Through The Eyes Of The Dead resonated with many death metal diehards. Guitarist Will Putney is an accomplished metal producer, mixer, engineer and cowriter. Putney's fingerprints are all over currently relevant albums from Stray From The Path, Reign Supreme, Misery Signals, Vision of Disorder, Counterparts, For Today, Like Moths To Flames, Stray From The Path and more. Guitarist Patrick Sheridan is rightly well regarded for his work on the fretboard as well as with a tattoo machine. The rhythm section of bassist Shane Slade and Sick Drummer-approved Josean Orta is beyond formidable.

The earliest rumblings of Fit For An Autopsy emerged on a 2008 demo. The self-released Hell on Earth EP arrived the following year, eliciting interest from Guy Kozowyk, The Red Chord vocalist and Black Market Activities label honcho. Kozowyk released Fit For An Autopsy's devastating debut, The Process of Human Extermination, in 2011. Sputnik Music paid particular attention to Johnson's dominating presence. "The dude's a swamp creature," they wrote of his "absurd" (in a good way) delivery. "When you hear him scream, it's like, 'What the ---- was that?' You realize whatever it is would probably eat you if you ran into it in the woods."

The group's seething contempt for modern society is rivaled only by the sonic bombardment dropped upon the unsuspecting all over Hellbound, a record that is equal parts challenging and engaging. It's an album designed to make people feel uncomfortable, while at the same time, counter-intuitively soothed by its catharsis. Criminals, junkies and the systems that fail them; deadbeat parents; poisoned food; BS celebrities and false idols; they've all led humanity here. Hellbound draws a line in the sand. It's a declaration that even it's all going down the proverbial drain likeminded individuals can take some solace in the expression of shared rage.
