Italian death metal miscreants, BLOODTRUTH, will levy the auditory punishment of their debut album, Obedience, upon the ears of the living this coming Tuesday. Flaunting ten blazing anthems of unadulterated lyrical hatred released through incinerating waves of limb-removing, guttural metal,Obedience was engineered by Francesco Paoli and Cristiano Trionfera (both of Fleshgod Apocalypse) at Sonic Hammer Studios, mixed and mastered by Italian death metal producer and legend Stefano Morabito of 16th Cellars Studios (Hour of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Eyeconoclast, Inherit Disease), and is enshrouded with some of the most intense artwork to date by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (Exodus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Kataklysm). Says Dead Rhetoric in an 8/10 review of the record, “despite the blitzkrieg that is invoked through these nine tracks (the album opens to some cool chanting), there is a flow and careful precision to the album and the fusion of the vocals and guitar riffs will keep you quite intrigued. ‘Quench Your Thirst,’ ‘Firesworn,’ and ‘Surrounded By Blind Bigots’ should all convey this message effectively: riff fast and furious, but with purpose (and tasteful solos).”

RABBITS Releases Fully Analog Video From Third LP With Full Process Breakdown Via Gear Gods; European Fall Tour Extended
Following the recent Lamb Unlimited release of RABBITS‘s contaminated third LP, Untoward, the horde now infects the media with their official video for the track “So Fake It’s Real.” Following in the same “digital can suck it” ethos of the LP — recorded live to tape, only overdubbing vocals and solos — as well as their recently recorded live session at the KEXP radio station studio in Seattle, the “So Fake It’s Real” video was constructed by Whitey McConnaughy (Red Fang, OFF!, ZZ Top), who took DIY to new levels of dementia to create one of the most caustic handmade videos to be found.
