This week in heavy music, we got new albums from Wristmeetrazor, AFI, and Slow Fire Pistol, all of which you can read about in Notable Releases. You can read about even more new metal LPs over at Invisible Oranges and I also recommend the new Ekulu LP and the Regarding Ambiguity/Demersal split. Head below for new songs from Deafheaven, Wolves In The Throne Room, Amenra, Times of Grace, DARE, Lantlôs, Filth Is Eternal, and more...

--

LANTLÔS - "MAGNOLIA"

German post-black metal turned heavy shoegaze act Lantlôs has shared the second single off their anticipated new album Wildhund (due 7/30 via Prophecy Productions). It's some of Lantlôs' most overtly poppy music yet, but still with a ton of weight in those riffs.

--

MASTIFF - "ENDLESS"

UK band Mastiff will release their new album Leave Me The Ashes of the Earth on September 10 via eOne, and new single "Endless" is an intense, furious dose of grindy, blackened metalcore.

--

CEREBRAL ROT - "VILE YOLK OF CONTAGION"

Seattle death metallers Cerebral Rot have shared "Vile Yolk of Contagion" off their upcoming album Excretion of Mortality (due 6/25 via 20 Buck Spin), and "vile" is a very good word for this song.

--

WAR CRIMINAL - "FROM THA GUTTER"

New England hardcore band War Criminal have shared a new single, and it's a bludgeoning, no-frills, floor-stomping attack.

--

DYING WHALE - "BIBLICAL IMAGE"

Georgia "doom punk" duo Dying Whale will release a new two-song single on June 25 via Nefarious Industries, and one of those songs is out now. It's throat-shredding, ear-piercing chaos in the best way.

--

JUDAS KNIFE (mem GARRISON, YOUTH OF TODAY, INTO ANOTHER, etc) - "LUMBERING GIANT"

Judas Knife is the duo of Sid Jagger aka Joseph Grillo (of Garrison, Gay For Johnny Depp, God Fires Man, and more) on vocals, guitars, bass, and keys and Drew Thomas (Youth of Today, Into Another, Bold, and more) on drums, and they're releasing their debut album Death Is The Thing With Feathers on 9/24 via Translation Loss.

BLU ANXXIETY - "INTERNET TERRORIST"

NYC electro/industrial punks Blu Anxxiety take on internet trolls with their eardrum-pounding "Internet Terrorist" off their debut LP Plaay Dead. "Blu Anxxiety is PTSD from the police state– anxiety from the boys in blue," the band's Chi Orengo tells No Echo about the band's name. "The two x’s stand for two strikes."
