On the latest installment of Metalunderground.com's new official podcast, hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) gear up for a season of new metal by discussing some early 2014 releases.

00:02:25: After years of experimentation with mixed results, Sweden's The Haunted teased old school fans with the thrashy, aggressive three-song EP "Eye Of The Storm" (reviewed here). The digital 7' is the product of a revamped lineup that sees former vocalist Marco Aro and former drummer Adrian Erlandsson rejoin the fold.

00:19:45: Next up is the new EP "Clear" from Bethesda, Maryland's Periphery. The popular "djent" standard bearers crept out on a limb with this effort: each song is a solo composition by separate band members, allowing each to explore his own songwriting style, which distills the band's influences and various elements as a centrifuge would separate blood cells. "Clear" may encounter a split fan reaction, but as Kevin will warn you, it's to be taken not as a change in direction, but as an experimental exercise of freedom.

00:39:04: We wrap up with a lively overview of Behemoth's long-awaited new studio album "The Satanist" (reviewed here), which is already proving to be one of 2014's most-discussed and highest acclaimed metal releases.
