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.
Meshuggah is widely considered to be one of the most important bands in the extreme metal world. Amongst the first bands to use eight-sting guitars and featuring chaotic polyrhythms and dissonance, Meshuggah’s music has redefined what it means to be “heavy” in the 21st century.
It has been over four years since the Swedish powerhouse has graced us with a new record. But that’s all about to change on October 7, 2016 when the eighth album of their nearly 30-year career drops. The disc is titled The Violent Sleep of Reason and will be released via the Nuclear Blast label.
French extreme metal merchants Gojira are at the very forefront of new millennial metal. The band’s extremely low tunings, percussive guitar work, and complex polyrhythms, coupled with lyrics centered around ecology and human decimation of the planet have set them apart from their peers.
Formed in 1996 and known as Godzilla for their first five years of existence, Gojira were forced to change to the original Japanese spelling of their moniker after the threat of a trademark infringement suit. The band have produced five of the most important albums in all of metal over the last 15 years. Their most recent being the crucially lauded 2012 masterpiece L’Enfant Sauvage. This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is from that album. Here is Gojira with the official video for “Explosia.”
Death Metal institution Malevolent Creation has announced that it has just signed a worldwide record deal with powerhouse metal label Century Media Records. The band is working on their twelfth full-length studio album, which is slated for release sometime in 2015. An extensive tour is planned in support of the recording.
