FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY – New Music Video Premiere

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have unleashed the title track of their forthcoming album, The Sea of Tragic Beasts, due out October 25 through Nuclear Blast. A video for the song can be seen above.

The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive, force-fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fifth studio album, The Sea Of Tragic Beasts, doesn’t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene...

TOOL – Streaming New Album

After 13 long years the wait has come to an end and TOOL’s long-awaited new full-length album “Fear Inoculum” has officially been released. You can stream it in full below. If you’re more into actually owning the record, you can find it over at Amazon and iTunes as well.

“Tool’s greatest breakthrough was to meld dark underground metal with the ambition of art rock. Although Metallica wrote their multi-sectioned, layered songs as if they were composers, they kept their musical attack ferociously at street level. Tool didn’t. They embraced the artsy, bohemian preoccupations of Jane’s Addiction while they simultaneously paid musical homage to the relentlessly bleak visions of grindcore, death metal, and thrash...
