23 New Metal & Hardcore Songs Out This Week
It's been a week of heavy hitters in the heavy music world. I highly recommend the new albums from Sanguisugabogg, All Out War, and Memoriam (ex-Bolt Thrower), all three of which you can read about in Notable Releases, plus it's also worth checking out the new Year of the Knife EP and new albums from Endorphins Lost, Osiah, Fvnerals, EYES, and Act of Impalement. We also polled an array of metal lovers (writers, promoters, musicians, etc) for a list of 16 metal bands to watch in 2023 that went up this week.
On top of all that, we've got new songs from Dying Fetus, Sunrot, Gel, Kommand, Predatory Void, Slipknot, Spirit Possession, Blood Runs Cold, .gif from god, See You Next Tuesday, and more. Read on for those and other heavy tracks from this week...

YASHIRA - "BURIAL MOUND" / HORSEWHIP - "CIRCADIAN RHYTHM"
Two sludgy, mathy Florida metalcore bands, Yashira and Horsewhip, have contributed one song each to a new split on Zegema Beach Records. The label says it's "one of [Yashira's] final songs before going on hiatus," while the Horsewhip song "shows off their new/extended lineup." Both are great.
KORRUPT - "HAIL SEITAN"
Norway's Korrupt (ex-Social Suicide) are releasing a new LP, Secret Sorrows, on March 1 via Holler Records. New single "Hail Seitan" is a catchy, blackened punk n' roll anthem that takes aim at the meat industry.

Screamo/post-hardcore bands Dreamwell and My Fictions released a split 7" last year as part of the Tor Johnson 20th Anniversary 7" Subscription Series, and today for Bandcamp Friday, it's up on Bandcamp. Dreamwell's song was recorded in 2020 during the same sessions as their great 2021 album Modern Grotesque, and it's a fiery '90s-style screamo song, while My Fictions' song ropes in elements of sludge, D-beat, and more.
