23 New Metal & Hardcore Songs Out This Week

Nerve Saw

This is an especially crazy week for new music all across the board, and metal and hardcore are no exceptions. I wrote about the new Today Is The Day, Tombs, Power Alone, and Machine Girl records in Notable Releases, and you can also head to Invisible Oranges’ Upcoming Metal Releases for more stuff like Dark Fortress, Insect Ark, Wishbone Ash, Violet Cold, Intronaut, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, Psalm Zero, and more. And scroll down for new singles from King Buzzo, Elder, Liturgy, Barishi, Huntsmen, White Stones (mem Opeth), Abysmal Dawn, The Fight, S.H.I.T., The Acacia Strain, Rotting Out, Havok, and more. I told you it was a crazy week!

KING BUZZO (WITH TREVOR DUNN) – “SCIENCE IN MODERN AMERICA”

Melvins frontman King Buzzo and frequent collaborator (and Mr. Bungle member) Trevor Dunn are releasing a new album together and you can read more about the trippy dark-folk of “Science In Modern America” here.

ELDER – “EMBERS”

Elder have shared the first taste of their anticipated new album Omens, and it’s an almost-11-minute dose of ’70s-style progressive hard rock that really earns its lengthy running time. Read more here.

LITURGY – “PASAQALIA II”

Liturgy have shared “Pasaqalia II,” a song using samples and ideas from “Pasaqalia” off Liturgy’s 2019 album H.A.Q.Q. Hunt-Hendrix considers this new song a “digital aria” that fits into his opera cycle called The Oioion Cycle — the live performance of Origin of the Alimonies, Hunt-Hendrix indicates, was just the first part. Read more, and an interview with Hunter, at Invisible Oranges.

HUNTSMEN – “GOD WILL STOP TRYING”

Huntsmen have shared another awesome, genre-fluid, super ambitious song from their anticipated new album Mandala of Fear (due 3/13 via Prosthetic). Elements of psychedelic folk, doom metal, classic rock, and more populate this seven and a half minute song, and Huntsmen fuse it all together seamlessly.

WHITE STONES (mem OPETH) – “DROWNED IN TIME”

White Stones (featuring Opeth bassist Martin Mendez) have shared another taste of their debut album Kuarahy (due 3/13 via Nuclear Blast), and it’s a killer dose of tripped-out prog/death metal.

NERVE SAW – “LIFE GOES ON… NOT”

Finnish death metal/crust punk blenders Nerve Saw (led by Markus Makkonen, who also used to play bass in Hooded Menace and plays in Sadistik Forest, who are working on album #4) formed back in 2010, but they’re just now gearing up to release their debut album, Peril, due March 27 via Testimony Records. They recently released lead single “Last Verse for the Buried” (listen below) and now have unleashed “Life Goes On… Not” (listen at Decibel), and both are total beasts.

ABYSMAL DAWN – “THE PATH OF THE TOTALITARIAN”

Here’s more bulldozing, neck-pain-inducing death metal from the new Abysmal Dawn album.

MALEVOLENCE – “KEEP YOUR DISTANCE” (ft. BRYAN GARRIS of KNOCKED LOOSE)

When UK metalcore band Malevolence toured with Knocked Loose last year, they wrote and recorded this song with KL frontman Bryan Garrris and Bryan also sang it with them on stage every night, and now the song is officially out and the video comes with footage of Bryan joining the band on stage. It’s a ripper, and it’ll appear on Malevolence’s upcoming The Other Side EP, due April 24 via MLVLTD.

THE FIGHT – “THEIR NEW AESTHETIC”

LIHC up and comers The Fight are releasing their new album Endless Noise on March 18 via Triple B, and the first single is the bust-your-shit-open “Their New Aesthetic.”

EXISTENCE – “HORROR SPAWNS” & “REALM OF HATE”

Swedish hardcore new-ish-comers Existence dropped a new two-song promo for their upcoming album, and these tracks find them getting a little heavier and thrashier than their previous material. Pretty awesome stuff.

FIELD AGENT – REFLECTION

South Florida punks Field Agent (not to be confused with the synthy Deafheaven side project of the same name) just released their debut six-song 12″ on Triple B, and it’s a total scorcher that kinda strikes the balance between tough East Coast hardcore and catchy skate punk.

WORLD DEMISE – “TIME AND AGAIN”

NJ metallic hardcore crew World Demise (who feature former members of Mongoloids, Manipulate, and Suburban Scum) are releasing a new demo on March 6 via Flatspot, and the just-released “Time And Again” is a fuck-your-shit-up scorcher of a track.

LA ARMADA – “PLAGUED”

Chicago-via-Dominican Republic hardcore band La Armada have launched a new song series called Songs of the Exiled, “a series of upcoming digital releases, ‘each dedicated to one of the places we were born, or have lived in, that have shaped us and our political stances.'” The first song is the searing “Plagued.”

S.H.I.T. – “HIDDEN IN ETERNITY” & “ERASER III”

Toronto-based makers of grimy hardcore, S.H.I.T. have dropped two new singles which — as Stereogum points out — were mixed by Jonah Falco (of Fucked Up and Career Suicide) and mastered by Power Trip collaborator Arthur Rizk, and they’re both as raw and fast and disgusting and awesome as you’d hope.

THE ACACIA STRAIN – “FEED A PIGEON, BREED A RAT” & “SEEING GOD” (ft. AARON HEARD of JESUS PIECE)

The Acacia Strain are beginning a tour with Rotting Out, Creeping Death, Chamber, and Fuming Mouth tonight (2/28), and ahead of that, they’ve followed December’s don’t-call-it-deathcore album It Comes In Waves with two new bruisers, including one featuring Aaron Head of Jesus Piece.

ROTTING OUT – “UNFORGIVEN”

Speaking of Rotting Out, the reunited San Pedro punks will release their first album in seven years, Ronin, on April 10 via Pure Noise, and it features their 2019 single “Reaper” as well as the just-released “Unforgiven.” Frontman Walter Delgado calls the new song “everything imprinted on me as a child from an abusive parent,” and it’s an adrenaline rush of a song, with a fresh-sounding take on classic ’80s-style hardcore and a ripping guitar solo to boot.

ON SIGHT – “EXPIRED”

NJ’s On Sight are releasing the Cause of Pain EP on April 24 via Unbeaten Records, and the first taste is this burly, pit-opening slice of metallic hardcore.

HAVOK – “PHANTOM FORCE”

Thrash revivalists Havok are releasing their new album V on May 1 via Century Media, and the first single is “Phantom Force” which sounds like it could be a lost gem from 1986 if not for the very modern production.

AZUSA – “DETACH” (ft. TESTAMENT’S ALEX SKOLNICK)

Azusa (mem Dillinger Escape Plan, Extol, Sea + Air) have shared another track off their upcoming album Loop of Yesterdays, and it’s another song that seamlessly blends metalcore and dream pop, and this one features a shredding guitar solo by Alex Skolnick of thrash legends Testament.
