10 New Metal Songs Out This Week

Subscribe to Brooklyn Vegan on

Mayhem‘s new album Daemon is finally out today, and you can stream it below this paragraph and read more about it in Invisible Oranges’ new interview with guitarist Teloch. Teloch mentions that, in addition to the three covers coming out on a special edition of Daemon (Death’s “Evil Dead,” Death Strike’s “The Truth,” and Morbid’s “Disgusting Semla”), they have seven other new covers in the vault that they plan to release. He also commented on Lords of Chaos — the recent Hollywood movie that tells the possibly-not-exactly-factual story of the early Norwegian black metal scene, of which Mayhem (but not Teloch who joined the band in 2011) were a major part of: “No, I haven’t seen it and I’m not sure if I’m interested in seeing it either because I’ve been hearing the story for so many years. So yeah I’d rather focus on the music rather than that bullshit [laughs].” Consequence of Sound since also asked a similar question to the band, this time with Necrobutcher (who was played by an actor in the movie), and you can watch his response in the video above.

For more of this week’s new metal, I’m a big fan of the new Alcest album (which I reviewed for Notable Releases and who Thomas Hinds just interviewed for Invisible Oranges), and further down in this post we’ve also got streams of the new Die Choking and The Great Old Ones albums. For even more new albums, head to Invisible Oranges’ Upcoming Metal Releases, to read about and stream the new records from Sunn O))), Vastum, Fit For An Autotpsy, Runemagick, Cloak, Dawn Ray’d, and more. And read on for new singles from Black Tusk, Prong, Chrome Waves, Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward, and more…

BLACK TUSK – “GALLOWS HILL”

Savannah’s Black Tusk have shared a new song from Graveface Records’ upcoming compilation which is being released to help fund the Graveface Museum in Savannah. Black Tusk’s Andrew Fidler says, “‘Gallows Hill’ is inspired by the history of the Salem Witch trials, in which innocents were persecuted by those who were afraid of anything different. When we were asked by Graveface to contribute a song to a comp dealing we the subject matter of cults and serial killers and fear of the unknown, we felt it fitting to write about an event that truly cemented the rule of mass hysteria into our cultural and political systems while highlighting a segment of our societies penchant for persecuting a set of ideals or belief system or even just the way a person identifies themselves or how they choose to live outside a set of norms established by religion.”

PRONG – “END OF SANITY”

NYC metal vets Prong have shared a new track off their upcoming EP Age Of Defiance, which drops November 29 via Steamhammer. It’s nothing you haven’t heard from this band before, but 30 years into his career, Tommy Victor still sounds pretty great.

CHROME WAVES – “PUSH THE SKY AWAY” (NICK CAVE COVER)

DAY OF ERRORS (BILL WARD) – “DARK”

Former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recently released a solo single, and today his band Day of Errors released a new song, “Dark.” It’s not exactly Master of Reality, but guitarist Joe Amodea is taking more than a few notes from Tony Iommi with his slowed-down riffage on this song, and it’s always great to hear doom with Ward behind the kit.
