Swiss War Metallers EGGS OF GOMORRH have just released their "Outpregnate" MCD via Krucyator Productions yesterday. A full EP stream is available right here. The band issued the following statement about "Outpregnate": "An illustrated focus is being applied here to enhance and outline the inhumane bestiality beyond the sensitive world of social taboos. We are entering a universe of carnage, apocalyptic hate, eternal sodomy and murder. The textures of ideological centers are covered with insects, filth, rot and open wounds. Its alignment is presented in symbiotic orchestration with biblical and mythical hybrid creatures that widens the hatred spectrum. Direct parallels with medieval satanism arise where torture and sadism had a different value from its modern perception. This reality and lyrical emphasis are tightly locked with the shift in musical composition and opens gateways to further blasphemous exposure." More about EGGS OF GOMORRH at

MISERY INDEX are streaming their entire new album, "Rituals Of Power", at this location now.  It will be released via Season Of Mist today. The band commented on the album as follows: ""Rituals Of Power" is a disavowal and warning against the consequences of our so-called 'post-truth' age. Each of the 9 songs revolves loosely around this theme, yet each track also stands very much on its own. As an album however, they are all brought to life as one ‘reanimated’ monster; it’s roughly 35 minutes of unhinged, yet cohesive, riff-driven aural ballistics. We were pissed off and on fire during both the writing and recording, and we think it shows in spades. We set out to write the best album we could, based on what we would want to hear first as fans of this music, and we could not be happier." More about MISERY INDEX at
