New Flesh 3/3: New Releases From Zulu, Enslaved, Majesties and More!

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on March 3, 2023

This is a pretty destructive week in new releases, with a solid amount of grindcore and furious hardcore. There is a bit of reprieve from progressive black metal masters and a stunning melodeath debut. For all of our favorite new releases, both singles and albums, be sure to check out the official Knotfest New Flesh playlist.

Enslaved – Heimdal – Progressive Black Metal

Enslaved’s Heimdal is a rich, multi-layered album that will require repeat listens to fully absorb. The broad range of influences make this album a testament to metal as a whole, rather than being subject to the closed confines of a single genre. Enslaved have shown why they are, and will forever be, titans in this genre.

Full Of Hell and Primitive Man – Suffocating Hallucination – Sludge/Grindcore

Dark, nasty, brooding and bone-crushingly heavy – the collaboration between Full of Hell and Primitive Man is even darker than the individual efforts of both bands. These two have created something that is immersive and horrifying at the same time. Like a tunnel of horrors, you must just go along for the ride.

.Giffromgod – Digital Red EP – Grindcore

Keeping it destructive and chaotic, the new EP from .Giffromgod is one of those anxiety-inducing albums that builds anticipation with each track. While only 6 tracks long, the band covers a lot of ground, with each step covered in grime and razor blades.

Majesties – Vast Reaches Unclaimed – Melodic Death Metal

Stepping away from the chaos and carnage for a moment, this is an absolutely stunning melodeath record, the brings back many of the elements of yesteryear that made the genre as strong as it was.

Impactful, ambitious, meaty, rich: the debut LP from Zulu is showing why they are one of the most exciting bands in the hardcore scene.
