New Flesh: New Releases from Fit For An Autopsy, Enterprise Earth and more!

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on January 14, 2022

A fresh crop of essential new heavy music has arrived. From death metal to doom, black metal to deathcore – here is this week’s new heat.

This week’s releases are high intensity, rip-roaring, riff fests that will leave you a bit battered come Monday…

Deadscape – Of The Deepest Shade – Melodic death metal

Let’s kick the week off with the sultry sounds of melodic death metal. Of the Deepest Shade is of the melancholy brand of melodic death metal and, while not a total reinvention of the wheel, does have some tricks up their sleeves. The biggest departure from the “standard” formula is that the harsh vocals are female while the clean singing is male.

Enterprise Earth – The Chosen – Deathcore

Deathcore is seriously reaching new heights these days and I, for one, am ALL for it. The Chosen does exactly what modern deathcore does best: going beyond the brutal capturing the essence of so many genres. From deathcore to thrash to djent, you’ll be kept engaged across this mammoth of an album.

Fit For An Autopsy – Oh What The Future Holds

You know what goes great with deathcore? More deathcore! Fit For An Autopsy have become one of the driving forces in metal in recent years and Oh What The Future Holds showcases a band at the top of their game. Dive headfirst into frenetic instrumentation, exhilarating riffing and pulsating drum beats!

Mizmor – Wit’s End – Doom

This may only be two tracks, but it is anything but light. The title track of thai EP is damn near 15 minutes long and the second, ambient, track will leave you feeling all sorts of haunted on the inside. The blackened vocals and dramatic instrumentation make this an EP with a full album of emotion.

Shadow Of Intent – Elegy – Blood Blast

Okay, this week is a bit of a deathcore deluge, but, like, why not!? Shadow of Intent definitely brings the epic on Elegy, with highly cinematic orchestration, while incorporating more traditional death metal. The use of symphonics makes this the type of deathcore that hits you in the feels.

Wiegedood – There’s Always Blood At The End Of The Road – Black metal

A favorite over on Pulse of the Maggots, There’s Always Blood…is a genuinely disturbing, relentless onslaught of filth. Confidently paced and, at times, atmospheric, there is plenty of hostility, piss and vinegar to please even the most cvlt black metal fan.
