Each week in "Unearthing the Metal Underground," we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am exploring the northern New Jersey death metal scene.
New Jersey has tons of tiny local death metal/hardcore bands. Sadly, most of them are hardly worth a listen. Most of them also have sub-par recordings. But today I will focus on a few bands that caught my attention lately and will tear your face off. More...
ANNUNAKI, the New Jersey-based blackened death metal band featuring ex-BLOOD FEAST drummer Kevin Kuzma, have uploaded two songs from a recent live performance to their MySpace page located here. The concert, which took place June 9 at Dingbatz in Clifton, was ANNUNAKI's live debut, opening for Metal Mike's PAINMUSEUM.
ANNUNAKI will be recording their debut album, "Throne of the Annunaki", at Trax East Studios this September. The album is due out on Militia Records before the end of the year.
LAMENT, the New Jersey thrash metal band featuring ex-BLOOD FEAST member Kevin Kuzma, disbanded earlier this year after parting ways with female vocalist Linda Alexander. The remaining members (Kevin Kuzma - drums; John Blicharz - guitar; Karl Odenwalder - bass) have recruited vocalist Tony Stanziano, and the band's sound shifted towards a blackened death metal sound while maintaining the thrash metal influence.
Along with the lineup change and the new direction, the band has officially changed its name to ANNUNAKI. "The new no-boundries, heavier, and more brutal/technical sound gave the band a new identity," says the band. "With so much contrast between then and now, a name change was necessary." ANNUNAKI are currently in the writing stages and will be recording their debut album, "Throne of the Annunaki", at Trax East Studios this September. The album is due out on Militia Records this October.
