Ladies and gentlemen, have we got a treat for you this week! Geeks of Doom is very proud to offer up the exclusive album stream of the new split release from Burials and Exhausted Prayer. These two west coast bands are among the most exciting and innovative in the metal underground today. Listen here below!
Burials hails from Portland, Oregon, and has evolved over the course of the last eight years from a fairly straight metallic hardcore band into its current amalgam of black metal, death metal, thrash, hardcore, and progressive rock.
Why on Earth is GoD featuring aMetallica video for Black Metal Friday, you ask? Well, just two days ago, the trash metal legends released videos for all 13 tracks from their highly anticipated tenth studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, which is available worldwide today, November 18, 2016, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings label.
One of those clips was for the song “ManUNkind” and featured a group of actors performing onstage in corpse paint and bearing a striking resemblance to the notorious Norwegian band Mayhem. I had commented in my review of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct yesterday that I thought it was just Metallica’s way of trolling the metal trolls. Well, it turns out that it is actually our first look at Lords Of Chaos, the upcoming feature film following the almost surreal saga of Mayhem.
November 1, 2016 marked the 34th anniversary of one of the most important records in the history of extreme music. Way back in 1982, a band from Newcastle, England unleashed their second album on an unsuspecting public and things would never be the same for heavy metal. The band was Venom and the album was called Black Metal.
It was a landmark release in many respects in that it would serve as the aesthetic blueprint for a variety of extreme genres such as thrash, death metal, and, of course, black metal. From a musical standpoint the record has more in common with thrash than modern black metal. Regardless, many people believe it to be the seed from which all that would follow across the spectrum of extreme metal was germinated.
Norwegian black/viking metal lords Uburen are set to return on October 31, 2016 with the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2014 album Withered Roots. The new offering is entitled Fra Doden Fodes Liv and comes courtesy of the Via Noctura label.
We here at Geeks of Doom are proud to present the exclusive world premiere of Fra Doden Fodes Liv in the form of the album stream here below.
Norwegian extreme metal band Tsjuder has had a rocky history. Their numerous line-up changes, break-ups, and other assorted misfortunes have resulted in the band only releasing five full-length albums in its tumultuous 23-year career.
But, when they’re active they are super influential, as evidenced in today’s Black Metal Friday selection. Tsjuder’s 2006 live DVD Norwegian Apocalypse shows the band in all of its live glory.
