GORGATRON – Usurpation

Having blasted stages with the likes of Havok, Mortician, Goatwhore and Anthrax, this North Dakota crew continues to make its headway into its tenth year of existence with 'Pathogenic Automation' out via Blood Blast Distribution. Suffocation-style riff madness, blastbeats, throat-tear from Karl "Ricegrinder" Schmidt, significant synapse destruction here.

VALDRIN – Basilisk Of Light

Painting an odyssey of a torturous hospital beneath a netherworld, Cincy's Valdrin have charged forth with 'Effigy of Nightmares', a razor-sharp document of dissonance and blackened death fury sure to swivel some heads.

POWER TRIP – Conditioned To Death (live)

Seeing Power Trip last at Gimme's past Decibel Fest hang in LA was an awe-inspiring thing, watching the thrashers from Texas rip up a stage shows them in their natural habitat best. Kudos for surprising fans last week with a 2018 Seattle set out of the blue. This track in particular spools it up in the later part of the set, Riley having whipped everyone into a frenzy and the dynamo rawness of PT in full flight. Hope we get to see them back in their element soon.


This popped out last year from the great Iron Lung imprint, but just getting a play now: from Singapore comes this brutal HC/death/D-Beat insanity throwing riffs and gravel in everyone's faces. The 'Invocation of Doom' LP comes with amazing art and etched vinyl.

TERMINAL NATION – Holocene Extinction

20 Buck Spin hits hard with another funtime-summertime hit: gargle-with-motor- oil vocals, sludgened HC/death metal hybrid stomp from this fiercely political Arkansas outfit. Bloody music for the times from the deepest/reddest of states for sure.
