The Rapturous Unraveling, the newest material from Atlanta death metal purists Malformity is streaming below. Now available on 7-inch vinyl via Boris Records, The Rapturous Unraveling delivers a lethal dose of violent OSDM that digs deep into the roots of extreme metal.
The band comments on the release:
"The songs on The Rapturous Unraveling reflect our passions for death metal, in what we like to listen to, and what we like to play, unhindered by current trends or attempts at appealing to others. These songs also accurately represent the current lineup of the band. Where the material on the first release was largely already written, these songs were created from the ground up with today's stronger lineup. They show our collaborative writing style where each member's input brings something unique to the sound."

Ugly, frost-bitten, troll-ravaged folk-metallers Frost Giant premiere "Curse of Doubt," a song from forthcoming Transcending Records release The Harlot Star. Stream it below.
The song is taken from forthcoming album The Harlot Star, an 11-track salute to the glory of battle from one of folk metal's most unique and entertaining bands. Frost Giant's third full-length is a catchy mix of 90's So-Cal punk, European folk metal and American hardcore rooted in Norse mythology, historical references and general silliness.

Unshine unleash their new video "Visionary's Last Breath" streaming below. The band comments:
"On this track, we tell the story of a healer preparing for the journey to ASTRALA and this requires purification of soul and body. It is fascinating to think that a modern human could also apply these same methods in most of the everyday activities. If it has worked for thousands of years, why did we forget these ways? This quite heavy song is played in low tuning in order to create the right atmosphere."
Watch "Visionary's Last Breath" below:
