PhobiaGeneration Coward EP | Willlowtip | Grindcore | United States (California)

After nearly 30 years of relentless writhing destruction from underground grindcore legends Phobia, the group’s sound has now culminated in the 12 short but lethally violent tracks of their latest release, the Generation Coward EP. Bursting at the seams with jagged, breakneck rhythms and brutally animalistic vocals, this EP is a seething mass of proof that Phobia have lost none of their speed or vigor in the three decades since their formation. If anything, their irreverent, pissed-off approach to grindcore is more pertinent than ever.

Lord GoreScalpels for Blind Surgeons | Everlasting Spew | Death Metal + Grindcore | Country

Welp, they’re called Lord Gore, and you get what you expect: gory-as-fuck death metal, with enough grind to polish off the edges. That’s funny, though, the thought of polishing edges: Scalpels for Blind Surgeons is most definitely not honed. It’s an evil, blunt instrument for dissecting your mind without regard for the potential of serious brain damage. If you want your death metal with just that extra element of the extreme, then this is just for you.

The ContortionistOur Bones EP | eOne | Progressive Metal | United States (Indiana)

The Contortionist is a great band, and has always been irrespective of which genre or subgenre they’re delving into (or whether they’re just sorta making their own). This short EP reflects this, with the band more post-rocky than ever. Their djenty origins still peek through the cracks, but The Contortionist has since moved far beyond those realms for something with a bit more headroom. In fact, with the Our Bones EP in mind, this band actually shows no signs of slowing down their dive into whatever art their minds lead them toward.

SlipknotWe Are Not Your Kind | Roadrunner | Nu-metal | United States (Iowa)

It’s Slipknot. You know what you’re getting. Personally, I’m a fan of Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), but I used to rock out older-school Slipknot way back in the day. An important band for metal for sure, doubtlessly, but not really under my scope of interest in these years of late. I respect this band’s unabashed presence and full-hearted grit when it comes to purveying the sounds of nu-metal, a subgenre which honestly gets more shit than it deserves.

PathologyReborn to Kill | Pavement Music | Death Metal | United States (California)

Returning with another serving of guttural, inhuman slams and razor-sharp technicality, remarkably prolific brutal death metal outfit Pathology are set to release Reborn to Kill, their tenth record in only 13 years. Having refined their terrifyingly proficient sound to even greater levels of precision, this one sees Pathology shredding their way through impossibly blistering solos and bludgeoning the listener with grisly breakdowns. Though largely similar to much of their previous material, Reborn to Kill will satisfy those hungry for more of their visceral brand of death metal carnage.
