Artificial Brain Streaming Full New Album

Artificial Brain's relentless second full-length album "Infrared Horizon" sees official release via Profound Lore Records today and now all the tracks have also come online for streaming.

With "Infrared Horizon," Long Island-based Artificial Brain has created an album far more advanced than the lauded "Labyrinth Constellation" debut, taking a brand of guttural yet technical and ambient sci-fi death metal to a new dimension. Produced by Colin Marson (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Krallice) at The Thousand Caves, "Infrared Horizon" sees the sonic architecture laid down by the band go further into the beyond and infinite.

Following performances at Covenant Festival Montreal with the likes of Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, and many others, Artificial Brain continues to promote the album live. This week the band hits the East Coast alongside Pyrrhon, including a set at the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest pre-show with Die Choking and more.

Artificial Brain Posts "Static Shattering"

Long Island's sci-fi death metal group Artificial Brain issues new single "Static Shattering" today as new record "Infrared Horizon" nears release through Profound Lore Records next week.

Produced by Colin Marson (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Krallice) at The Thousand Caves, "Infrared Horizon" sees Artificial Brain traveling towards a sonic realm where the music has become more brutal and dissonant, technical, atmospheric, and just overall more otherworldly.

Lyrical themes delve into concepts within a dystopian future in which robots and cyborgs have outlived human beings and who believe themselves to be not a creation of the long extinct humans, but instead a more perfect evolution of them. These themes are portrayed in the cover art crafted by Adam Burke. Check out a new song below, and catch the band live on these dates:

4/15/2017 Covenant Festival - Montreal, QC
4/21/2017 Court Tavern - New Brunswick, NJ w/ Abacinate

Artificial Brain Streams "Infrared Horizon"

Long Island's sci-fi death metal quintet Artificial Brain just debuted the title track to the impending "Infrared Horizon" album, which is nearing release through Profound Lore Records in late April. The track features Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder, Paulo Paguntalan of
Copremesis and Gath Smane, and can be heard below.

"'Infrared Horizon' is written from the perspective of something non-human, trying to define human existence," issues Artificial Brain. "This is a track that we debuted live on our tour with The Black Dahlia Murder in late 2015, so it felt appropriate to have this be the track that features guest vocals by Black Dahlia singer Trevor Strnad. This song also features Paulo Paguntalan of Copremesis and Gath Smane, who contributes some vocals to the outro, a piece of the record that reflects our interest in incorporating more electronic experimentation into our sound."

New album "Infrared Horizon" will see release on CD, LP, and digital formats through Profound Lore Records on April 21st. You can also catch the band live on these upcoming dates:

4/15/2017 Covenant Festival - Montreal, QC
4/21/2017 Court Tavern - New Brunswick, NJ w/ Abacinate

The Black Dahlia Murder Gearing Up For U.S. Tour

The Black Dahlia Murder will cross the U.S. starting 11/27 to headline the IndieMerch Tour with Goatwhore, Iron Reagan, Entheos, and Artificial Brain. All dates are available below.

New album "Abysmal" is a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcasing TBDM at its very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks.

The band re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced "Everblack," with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums. More...

Metalunderground.com's Best Of 2014 Awards

What was old is now new again, as much like with Hollywood returning to Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and Terminator, metal heads had a desire for past and present to collide throughout 2014.

This was another year of major reunions and comebacks with the likes of At The Gates, Slipknot, Sanctuary, and Massacre all returning with new material. The long dead Coal Chamber also came back to life, although we won't see an actual release until next year (with varying opinions on to whether that particular resurrection was wanted or needed).

Besides all the blasts from the past, this was a year marked by spectacles in the metal world – some truly unfortunate and others less so. Heavy metal managed to hit the Facebook trending bar and gain exposure to millions when 92 year old actor Christopher Lee released his Metal Knight EP and Christmas single ”Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing.”

Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying was finally sentenced after being arrested back in 2013 for attempting to hire a hitman to kill his ex-wife – an act that lead to the creation of Wovenwar, featuring the remaining members of As I Lay Dying as well as a fellow ex-believer from Oh, Sleeper.

This was also the year that included Roadrunner Records botching the release of the first Opeth single from “Pale Communion” and subsequently breaking the Internet. And who could forget Wintersun's infamous rant (perhaps best summarized as “I can't possibly record an album unless its in my own personal studio that someone else has paid for”), which sent a horde of lemming-like fans to send death threats to the Nuclear Blast Facebook page?

Typical metal shenanigans aside, this was actually a solid year for metal overall even past the major reunions. Now moving into 2015, the big question marks are if that Metallica album actually comes out, when Dimmu Borgir is finally going to get around to leaking some new info, and for those of us who have been impatiently waiting since 2012 – when will God Of Atheists finally drop that debut release that we voted most anticipated two years ago?

Before any of those questions come close to getting answers, let's take a look back at what 2014 had to offer for metal fans... More...
