YEAR OF THE KNIFE - "PREMONITIONS OF YOU"

Delaware metallic hardcore band Year of the Knife have debuted another song off their anticipated new album Internal Incarceration (due 8/7 via Pure Noise). It's a rager, and vocalist Tyler Mullen says it "was written about watching someone’s self destruction over the years leave them with no support system. No family, no friends. No real love or hope. It's about a person relying on external things to help them, but they don’t see that internally it’s those same things leading them to their own demise."

UNIFORM - "DISPATCHES FROM THE GUTTER"

If you think Uniform's pummelling industrial ripper "Dispatches from the Gutter" is incendiary, the video is even moreso. Says director Jacqueline Castel: “The video was approached as a documented mass sigil informed by the historical and philosophical concept of self-immolation, performed under the lunar eclipse of Independence Day. Participants were asked to bring personal offerings to burn, and were given a directive to write down their intentions for the future, which were attached with accelerants to an effigy that was later cremated. It was a symbolic act of releasing what we wish to abandon, and an invocation of what we wish to rebuild.” Uniform's new album, Shame, is out September 11.

QUESTION - REFLECTIONS OF THE VOID

Mexican death metallers Question are officially releasing their new album Reflections of the Void on July 31 via Chaos Records, but the whole thing is streaming now, and it's a killer offering of vicious death metal with just the right amount of melody and production work to add some light at the end of the tunnel.

--

ECOSTRIKE - A TRUTH WE STILL BELIEVE
