Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on July 29, 2022

Get a rundown of the best new releases in heavy music spanning the spectrum from death metal to modern hardcore.

This week we have a bit of variety going on with some industrial, death metal, and hardcore of all varieties. For all our favorite new releases from throughout the week, be sure to follow the official Knotfest New Flesh Playlist!

Black Magnet – Body Prophecy – Industrial

Body Prophecy | Black Magnet | 20 Buck Spin

Kicking off this week we have some 90s inspired industrial metal from Black Magnet. Seedy and aggressive, the album alternates between slow, methodic beats and faster moments that propel it forward. Dark, danceable and nihilistic, this is everything you want from an industrial release.

Bloodletter – Malignancy – Thrash

Re-recorded and reissued, Bloodletter have brought their furious 2014 EP screaming into 2022 with all the rage we need to survive the slow apocalypse we are currently living through. Savagely raw, these 13 minutes will be the cathartic release you crave this weekend.

Funeral Chic – Roman Candle – Stoner/Hardcore

Funeral Chic are a band that is anything but boring. Each album shows a marked progression and a willingness to experiment with their sound. Roman Candle has everything from snarling punk to arena rock, fist pumping rhythms and hard hitting drums. Plus, puppets. Really that’s all you need.

Ithaca – They Fear Us – Hardcore

Is hardcore having a revival as of late? It definitely feels that way. People are pissed and understandably so. Ithaca is no exception. They Fear Us pulls out all the raw emotional intensity of hardcore, with progressive and modern moments to bring the classic genre into 2022.

Krisiun – Mortem Solis – Death Metal

Brazilian death metal outfit Krisiun are back with their 12th full-length album. Stripped down and more brutal than ever, Mortem Solis is savage, hard hitting, and hits the spot if you’re wanting something extreme.

Stick To Your Guns – Spectre – Melodic Hardcore

Don’t let the very nostalgic punk artwork fool you, this is punk made for 2022. Stick To Your Guns combines the fire of traditional hardcore with contemporary compositions and soaring melodics. The stomp and groove is infectious, the lyrical content both smart and intense.
