Gimme Metal Program Director Brian Turner delivers the week's top 5 office buzz-worthy tracks.
SCARECROW – Raise the Death's Head
Blazing death has arrived courtesy Scarecrow, which includes Matt Harvey (Exhumed) and Will Carroll (Death Angel/Hammers of Misfortune, Gimme's weekly Full Metal Jacket show), and it's some fired up old school '87 vibes assured to break bones and brains.
WITCHCRYER – Nemesis the Inevitable
With 'When Their Gods Come For You' out now on Ripple Music, Austin's Witchcryer addresses visions of deities of mankind's history telegraphed through epic classic doom and proto-metal lens, augmented by the fantastic vocals of Suzy Bravo. This track however "Nemesis the Inevitable" is an especially personal tome to Bravo's witnessing firsthand of crimes against women. Spiralling and fearsome stuff. We welcome Suzy for a guest DJ special Friday, October 15th on Gimme, so give her an ear.
SLIMELORD – Day of the Triffids
Yorkshire's Slimelord's sounds hang on your wall like cave moss. Wretched, sustained distorto-death sucks time and space in like a black hole continually suggesting the futility of escape.
LAMP OF MURMUUR – Reduced To Submission and Slavery
One-man broken blackness hailing from Olympia, Washington, Lamp of Murmuur emit raw primal sounds heavy on harshness but still offering flickers of melody in their dense, lo-fi fog. Recent recordings suggest swing into other terrains outside of black metal as well, even clocking in a Christian Death cover for goth-heads.
ALTARETH – Moon
Echoes of Scandinavian folk issue forth at the top of this track, only to be overtaken by a lavaflow of doom. Slow, swirling, expressive sounds from Sweden, the full length 'Blood' arrives on November 5th.
