Gimme Metal's Top Tracks of the Week

ALIEN WEAPONRY, VESSEL OF INIQUITY Among Gimme Metal's Top Tracks of the Week


Gimme Metal Program Director Brian Turner delivers the week's top 5 office buzz-worthy tracks.

ALIEN WEAPONRY – Buried Underground

New Zealand's Alien Weaponry have been creating their own inimitable band of rhythmic thrash for some time, singing in te reo Māori as well as English and very reflective in their cultural history. Their latest 'Tangaroa' (Sept 17, Napalm) should elevate their international repute somewhat, and they're giving Gimme listeners a treat: special guest DJ special September 28th.

PORTRAIT – Curtains (The Dumb Supper)

A nice new slice of classic heavy metal evocations galloping forth from these Swedes (who have been at it for 15 years). 'At One With None' out September 3 on Metal Blade.

VESSEL OF INIQUITY – A Glimpse of the Pattern

The intro crawls out of a fuzzified black vortex before stoking riffage flames all around, a complete surround-soundbath of every bad-vibes frequency imaginable and fused together that vocals that sounds almost almost nonexistent yet omnipresent. Another slab of sickness from the Sentient Ruin vault.

ARCHSPIRE – Golden Mouth of Ruin

A taste of their 'Bleed the Future' LP due out in October on Season Of Mist. Some completely lost-mind tech-death outta Canada at one point literally sounds like a wirebrush scrubbing your noggin in 9/4 time. Insanely relentless. Hints of a Gimme guest takeover on the horizon as well!

GAMA BOMB – Thunder Over London

Ah man, ten seconds into this no-holds barred Northern Irish trash and the leaping vocals of Philly Byrne and I'm sold. Unabashed students/fans of the genre and all that goes with it.
