One of the very big releases in heavy music today is the new Napalm Death album, which I reviewed in Notable Releases, and also the towering, noisy new Sumac album is out today. We also got new singles from Chrome Waves, Wayfarer, Of Feather and Bone, Whores (Black Sabbath cover), Thou (Alice In Chains cover), Chamber, Audn, Militarie Gun, and more. Scroll down for all the heavy we posted this week...

OF FEATHER AND BONE - "ENTROPIC SELF IMMOLATION"

Denver death metallers Of Feather and Bone will release their third album, Sulfuric Disintegration, on November 13 via Profound Lore, and the first single is a seriously intense, adrenaline-rush-inducing dose of classic-style death metal.

PALLBEARER - "THE QUICKSAND OF EXISTING"

Doom greats Pallbearer have released another song off their anticipated new Forgotten Days, and as you'd expect from them, it's equal parts crushing and catchy, and it makes time for a pretty psychedelic guitar solo too.

--

WHORES - "CORNUCOPIA" (BLACK SABBATH COVER)

Whores' contribution to Magnetic Eye Records' upcoming Vol. 4 [Redux] is a noisy, sludgy take on "Cornucopia" that's nearly twice the length of Black Sabbath's original. Read more about it here.

THOU - "THEM BONES" (ALICE IN CHAINS COVER)

Thou's cover of "Them Bones" from Magnetic Eye Records' upcoming tribute album to Alice In Chains' Dirt was released, and it should be no surprise that Thou absolutely killed this one. Read more here.

AUÐN - "LJÓSTÝRA"

Icelandic black metallers AUÐN have announced a new album, Vökudraumsins fangi, due October 30 via Season of Mist, and first single "Ljóstýra" finds them going back and forth between melodic, atmospheric sections and tornadic blasts. "Ljóstýra,' meaning 'Faint light,' is a metaphor for loneliness and the never ending jaded grind our world is spiraling towards, we hope for brighter days that never seem to materialize," the band says.

MILITARIE GUN - MY LIFE IS OVER EP & "DISLOCATE ME" VIDEO

Militarie Gun is a new project led by Regional Justice Center's Ian Shelton that also features guitarists Nick Cogan (Drug Church) and William Acuña, drummer Vince Nguyen (Modern Color), and bassist Max Epstein, and they just released their debut EP and put out a video for the song "Dislocate Me." Compared to RJC's harsh powerviolence, this EP is more in shouty, mid-tempo post-hardcore territory, and Ian's pretty great at this sound too.

OUR FUTURE IS AN ABSOLUTE SHADOW - EP

Our Future Is An Absolute Shadow is the new band of Dave Norman (Zegema Beach Records, Apostles of Eris), Jesse Mowery (Apostles of Eris, Marjorel, In Wolves Clothing), and Adrian Manges (Cloud Rat, Old Soul), and their new EP on Zegema Beach is a killer offering of '90s-style screamo that's raw, harsh, and noisy but still full of soaring melodies and atmosphere.

The first taste of former Kvlertak vocalist Erlend Hjelvik's new solo project, "North Tsar," is here.

--

CARCASS - "THE LONG AND WINDING BIER ROAD"

TWIN GOD - "YOU AND I (DEATH OF THE TWIN)"

TEAR DROP (mem BITTER END) - "LOVE YOU TO DEATH" (TYPE O NEGATIVE COVER)

Tear Drop is a new band fronted by Griffin Jarzombek of Texas metallic hardcore band, and they're releasing a new EP called Did You Wanna Love Me to Death on September 25 via Grim Reality, which will include covers of Youth Brigade's "Did You Wanna Die" and Type O Negative's "Love You To Death." The latter is out now, and it's dedicated to fellow Texas hardcore musicians Riley Gale (Power Trip) and Wade Allison (Iron Age), both of whom sadly just passed away. "We all love Type O so this was an easy choice for a cover," guitarist Patrick Flanigan told Revolver. "This song is an incredible heavy ballad. We just did our best to do the song justice." They did indeed do it justice, and gave it a metallic hardcore spin in the process.
