Read more about the songs and album here and pre-order our exclusive splatter vinyl variant.
SUNROT - "TREPANATION"
NJ sludgesters Sunrot have shared another track off The Unfailing Rope, and it's a harsh, intense song that the band says this about: "Trepanation is an old medical procedure where they would drill a hole into a persons skull to relieve pressure in the head. As a group of people we have all dealt with varying degrees of mental health struggles and the song is using that procedure as a metaphor for the release of that kind of mental pressure."
GLASS CASKET - "LET THEM GO"

NIGHTMARER - "HAMMER OF DESOLATION"
Dissonant death metallers Nightmarer (current and former members of The Ocean, Convulsing, Gigan, War From A Harlot’s Mouth, and more) have shared a new song off their upcoming sophomore LP and you can read about it here.
EMPIRE STATE BASTARD (BIFFY CLYRO, SLAYER) - "HARVEST"
Empire State Bastard is a new grindcore-inspired project from Biffy Clyro members Simon Neil and Mike Vennart, with the extremely prolific and legendary Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, currently in tons of bands) on drums. They just signed to Roadrunner, and their debut single is "Harvest," which is like half grindcore, half alternative rock. Interesting mix!
CALLIGRAM - "EX-SISTERE"
London black metallers Calligram have announced their sophomore album, Position | Momentum, due July 14 via Prosthetic. Here's the tornadic lead single "Ex-Sistere."
THY CATAFALQUE - "NÉMA VERMEK"
Hungarian avant-garde metal band Thy Catafalque will release new album Alföld on June 16 via Season of Mist, and here's the totally-out-of-this-world new single "Néma vermek."

OFF! - "KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT"
Keith Morris-fronted hardcore supergroup OFF! will release the FLSD EP on Record Store Day (4/22), with outtakes from last year's Free LSD. "We recorded 'Keep Your Mouth Shut' for Free LSD but ended up saving it for the movie," Dimitri Coats says. "We needed a powerful non-album track in the film to establish the band before their attempt to save human consciousness from the clutches of an evil alien species."
OLTH - "THE LAST SONG"
NYC screamo band OLTH opened for Liturgy at TV Eye on Thursday (3/23), and they've also got a new album called every day is sOmeOne's speciaL day due June 2 via Zegema Beach Records. Lead single "THe LasT sOng" starts out harsh and caustic before turning into some Slint-like post-rock.
