Between today's Bandcamp fundraiser, all the quarantine-era content being released, and all your regularly scheduled programming, it has been a massive week for heavy music. I reviewed the new Umbra Vitae (J Bannon's new death metal band) and Viva Belgrado albums for Notable Releases, and you can also read about the new An Autumn For Crippled Children, Witchcraft, Pyre, and more at Invisible Oranges' Upcoming Metal Releases. Scroll down for new songs from Bell Witch/Aerial Ruin, The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Pyrrhon, Chelsea Wolfe (Cramps cover), Cave In (Rolling Stones cover), Marissa Nadler (Metallica cover), Thou (Black Sabbath cover), Black Mountain, Haram, Mindforce, Infant Island, KRUELTY, and tons more.

Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato has shared another song off his upcoming debut solo album Child Soldier: Creator of God. Fans of classic Nine Inch Nails should not sleep on this one.

--

PYRRHON - "ABSCESS TIME"

"You could think of ['Abscess Time'] as our version of ‘rock music,'" says Doug Moore of the usually death metal-oriented Pyrrhon. "It’s got more in common with The Stooges or Flipper than with Suffocation or Atheist." That's true, and this song is also a filthy mess (in a good way). Read more here.

Long-running riffers The Sword have a new compilation, Chronology 2006 - 2018 and Conquest of Kingdoms, on the way, and it'll include this newly-released cover of Kiss' "She."

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE - ATONEMENT II B-SIDES FOR CHARITY

"These songs didn't make the final cut for 'Atonement'," says Killswitch Engage's Jesse Leach. "Choosing which songs make an album remains a tough process for me. While the songs that made the most sense appear on the album, I'm still attached to every song I write. So, when the idea came up to put these B-Sides out and donate funds to a charity, I was relieved at the idea and the band unanimously agreed to the cause. I am proud these songs get to see a release, and to help others in the process is a huge bonus." 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for the Center for Disaster Philanthropy.

156/SILENCE - "CONFLICT OF INTEREST"

Pittsburgh's 156/Silence are among the many bands bringing classic-style metalcore back in interesting ways, and if you dig this kinda stuff, you're gonna wanna hear their upcoming album Irrational Pull, due June 5 via self-release.
