Incinerate Reveals New Album Details

Incinerate is due to drop "Eradicating Terrestrial Species" on April 21st via Comatose Music. The label comments:

"After the departure of founding member and songwriter Scott Ellingboe, many were skeptical of what the future would hold for this veteran outfit. However, the current lineup - featuring guitarist Ted Isac and bassist Sasha Wilczynski, along with original member Jesse Watson and returning drummer Darren Cesca - has laid to waste any doubts lingering over the band's re-emergence.

"'Eradicating Terrestrial Species' will push the boundaries set by 2008's 'Anatomize,' yet stay true to the traditional Incinerate sound with mind-bending ferocity. Conceptually the album is science fiction meets the absence of faith in religion and will prove to be Incinerate's most involved and accomplished musical endeavor to date. New and old fans alike will not be disappointed and should expect a more mature and evolved Incinerate." More...

Aminals Posts New Animated Video "Bitchcraft"

Aminals a metal outfit hailing from Boston, Massachusetts is streaming a new animated video for the song "Bitchcraft" below. The track is taken from Animals' 2014-release "Dead Air".

States guitarist Ilya Podolskiy about the video: "We always wanted to have an animated video but it’s a concept that can easily become too “cheesy”. I came across the talented Crystal Araiza’s artwork and and it was the most unique work I’d seen in a while. We got together to discuss concepts and ‘Bitchcraft’ just seemed like a natural fit with her style. The video is about this little gremlin who we come across that can generate these little flowers from its body. After multiple attempts of trying to present and “shower” us with these flowers, it grows tired of our rejection. It then turns into a monster and decapitates us. Ya know, simple basic stuff."
