Polish black metallers Misanthur will release their debut album Ephemeris on October 15 via Season of Mist Underground Activists, and it'll include "On The Heights of Despair," which embraces the rawness of classic black metal in a way that still feels crisp and modern. The band says, "The song expresses the loathing of the passing time but also shows the dimmed fire of hope in one's mundane existence, which is perfectly connected with the full concept of the upcoming debut album."

TOTAL MELTDOWN - "BLAME ME"

Total Meltdown are a new-ish New York hardcore band with members of On the Might of Princes, Perfect World, and Spotlights, and new single "Blame Me" is a dose of sludgy, slowed-down hardcore that hearkens back to My War-era Black Flag.
