Grimus Streams New Song

Lambgoat.com today hurl forth a bit of pre-weekend audio animosity with a track premiere of "Without Master" from New Jersey death metal deviants, Grimus. The song comes by way of the band's previously announced forthcoming full-length debut, "Omnicide." Check it out here or through the player below.

Lyrically centered around mankind’s killer instinct and violent purpose in life, "Without Master" sets the album’s mood with 3:45 minutes of chronic, blasting hatred. Elaborates guitarist Michael Munoz: “Without Master incorporates fast, albeit simple and catchy riffs, while keeping the song as fluid as possible. It was written for the sole purpose of opening the album."

Grimus Announces "Omnicide" Album

Almost three years after the pummeling "Gutter Earth" EP was inflicted upon the masses, cold-blooded Elizabeth, New Jersey based death metal insurgents Grimus have completed their first proper full-length, "Omnicide." The band's publicist issued the following press release:

"With its members all hailing from a plethora of extreme metal acts including Iberian black metal outfit Windfaerer, Metal Blade tech/death act Allegaeon and others, the members of Grimus are united in hatred for humankind, their output surging with guttural, cutting-edge death metal prowess, with monolithic slams and swells of the most vicious kind infiltrating their uncompromising low-end attack.

"These atrocious features are grippingly captured on the quintet’s debut full-length album, Omnicide. The term literally meaning the killing of everything is a testament to man’s inherent, bloodthirsty nature and audacity to alter his surroundings, through efficient forms of destruction. Paradoxically, mankind is willfully committing suicide in its attempt to become a godlike creator. This album is a soundtrack to the decimation of all that is known, 'the age of none.' More...

Unearthing The Metal Underground In New Jersey

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 New Jersey extreme metal scene.

The extreme metal scene in New Jersey is hard to find, but it's there. I find that most of them like to hide under the radar and remain underground. the bands I'm featuring here aren't that kind. these are the ones looking to make their foot print in the scene by doing something a little different in their own way. There are too many bands around that do the same song over and over again with different lyrics and in a different key or tempo. More...
