North Carolina riff-rockers ASG re-emerge with their six-full length and first new album in five years, Survive Sunrise. Recorded, mixed and mastered with longtime producer Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer, Monster Magnet), Survive Sunrise further expands upon ASG’s trademark blend of heavy, southern-fried, alt-rock fury and infectious, hook-centric accessibility. With unabashedly hooky vocals, evocative lyrics and well-honed musical chops, ASG create soaring, melodic rock anthems with a sunny, colorful vibe that are reminiscent of the album’s electrifying cover art, designed by Malleus (Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, The Melvins). Survive Sunrise is the perfect summertime hard rock album, one that rocks with wild abandon and will burrow into your head for years to come.

US death metal veterans Skinless return with their pulverizing sixth studio offering, aptly titled Savagery. Recorded by Tom Case at Doomsday Bunker Studio in New York and by Dave Otero (Primitive Man, Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage) at Flatline Audio in Colorado, Savagery embodies ten slabs of rotting, aural remains across 37 minutes of titanic slams, untouchable grooves, mauling riffs and blood-thirsty, bestial growls. It sees Skinless at the top of their game, more than 25 years into an untouchable reign of terror. Features stunningly sick cover art by renowned tattoo artist Jesse Levitt. For fans of Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Broken Hope, Devourment, Gatecreeper, Aborted and Obituary.

Vomitor

Pestilent Death

$14.98

New CD: $14.98 Buy

True to it's title, Pestilent Death is swarming and virulent, boundless and final. Characteristically, the Aussie hooligans kick into high gear immediately here, and there's no relenting to their iron-fisted fury. Ancient spells from underground metal's rich past are corralled and then contorted to Vomitor's diabolical design, resulting in a trademark sound that's all their own. Blood-red and raw yet somehow refined, the bolstered four-piece lineup of The Escalation (which saw Portal's Horror Illogium joining their ranks) continues their dominance across seven stout tracks in an incendiary 32 minutes. Each one's a literal tornado of everything that's made Vomitor so endearing and enduring: thermonuclear riffing, dive-bombing solos, vocal vomit, and chaotic crunch, now all rendered in it's clearest but most cutting state. Warped minds breed warped music, and Vomitor are more warped than most: Pestilent Death is heavy metal barbarity taken to it's most maniacal extreme.

Riot V

Armor Of Light

$13.98

New CD: $13.98 Buy

Hardly any other metal act has the long, absorbing history that Riot V has behind it. Since the quintet formed in 1975 they have been hit by several severe strokes of fate during their long career. With Rhett Forester (R.I.P. 1994), Guy Speranza (R.I.P. 2003) and Mark Reale (R.I.P. 2012) - three deceased members have left their mark on the four decades of Riot's band history. Since their legendary debut album "Rock City" (1977), Riot has released numerous heavy metal classics, including "Fire Down Under" (with classics like "Swords And Tequila"), their masterpiece "Thundersteel" (1988), and the unforgotten "The Privilege Of Power"(1990).
