This week in heavy, I highly recommend the new Gillian Carter album (which you can read about in Notable Releases) and the new one from Faceless Burial (see below). Also check out the new LPs from Goatwhore, Cloud Rat, Lamb of God, and more, and head to IO for those and others. This week also brought new songs from Hammers of Misfortune, Liturgy, Ripped To Shreds, Doomsday, Exhumed, Black Anvil, Cinderblock, Firewalker, and more. Head below for all the hardcore, metal, and adjacent stuff we posted this week...

--

R.A.M.B.O. - "THE END IS NYE"

Philly hardcore supergroup R.A.M.B.O. -- vocalist Tony Croasdale, guitarist Andy Wheeler (Reagan Squad), bassist Bull Gervasi (Policy Of Three, Four Hundred Years), and drummer Jared Shavelson (The Hope Conspiracy, None More Black, Paint It Black -- have shared the second single off their first album in 15 years, Defy Extinction, which arrives 11/4 via Relapse. Vocalist Tony Croasdale says, “This song was inspired by the cover photo of the September 2014 issue of Popular Science showing Bill Nye in a boxing pose with his hands wrapped. I work as a science communicator, and Bill Nye has been a big inspiration for me. I wonder how he manages to stay cool in the public eye in this era of science denial. This song runs with the obvious pun and imagines what might happen if he snapped and let out decades of frustration. We hope it's clear that no one is supposed to be killed in the video, just kidnapped and forced to listen to the IPCC report read in its entirety. The messy bow tie at the end is an intentional artistic choice to represent the unraveling of Bill Nye and has nothing to do with the fact that no one on set knew how to tie a bow tie. Bill Nye is most welcome to use this song as his walkout music for his next debate. It’s the least we can do."

PUNITIVE DAMAGE - "BOTTOM FEEDER"

Punitive Damage, the Vancouver hardcore group led by Regional Justice Center bassist Steph Jerkova, have shared the second taste of upcoming LP This Is The Blackout, and Steph's corroded bark sounds great over this bouncy, classic punk/hardcore backdrop.

Like this one, their take on "Children of the Grave" from Master of Reality.
