SPIRIT ADRIFT - "ASTRAL LEVITATION" & "SUPERNAUT" (BLACK SABBATH COVER)

Spirit Adrift recently released the lead single off their upcoming album Enlightened in Eternity (due 10/16 via 20 Buck Spin), and earlier this week they put out a "Supernaut" cover from the upcoming Vol. 4 tribute LP (which also features Thou, The Obsessed, Matt Pike, and more), and then they released the second single from the new album. It's called "Astral Levitation" and it finds them combining speedy hard rock fretwork with slower-paced melodic doom, and also finding them for a psychedelic passage, shredding solos, and more.

NAPALM DEATH - "A BELLYFUL OF SALT AND SPLEEN"

Napalm Death have shared the third single off their highly anticipated new album Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism (due 9/18 via Century Media), and so far each single has showed off a different side of the album. This one finds them in grimy industrial metal territory, almost closer to former Napalm Death member Justin Broadrick's band Godflesh than to classic ND. It's unsurprisingly killer.

"What can’t be said about Trouble? Legends around these parts," Lamont said to Metal Injection. "‘The Tempter’ was the obvious choice. Classic first cut off their debut Psalm 9. Heavy as fuck. An honor to cover this." All proceeds go to Chicago's The Night Ministry, "who work to provide housing, health care, and human connection to members of the community struggling with poverty or homelessness."

The White Swan is the project fronted by Kittie drummer Mercedes Lander, and while Kittie hailed from the early 2000s nu metal scene and went on to dabble in groove & death metal, alt-rock, and more, The White Swan are more of the psychedelic, atmospheric post-metal variety.

Italy's Regrowth followed their debut EP and some singles with their first full-length, Lungs, and it's a killer offering of melodic hardcore that brings to mind stuff like Defeater, Modern Life Is War, Comeback Kid, etc, but Regrowth know how to put their own spin on it and make it feel fresh.
