Four great new bands for my ears today, thanks again to the world of Facebook. First off is the news that hidden gem German death metallers Golem are getting their first two albums rereleased on F.D.A. Rekotz, and we can look forward to ‘Eternity: The Weeping Horizons’ and ‘The 2nd Moon’ with new artwork and on vinyl for the first time. I was not aware of Golem’s existence, until today, but after listening to the track ‘Heretic’, streaming here (, I’m hooked. It’s got a great early 90s death metal vibe, coming across somewhere in between ‘Heartwork’ and ‘Leprosy’. I’m looking forward to getting a hold of the CD copy.

Next is Abhorrent Decimation, previewing their new EP ‘Infected Celestial Utopia’ (available from Cold Birth Records) with a new music video for the title track. I’ve not really been affected by music videos for a long time, as you find metal ones haven’t really done anything revolutionary for years. I used to love them, but they are becoming a bit of a dying art behind these new fangled lyric videos. The song however is fucking killer. It’s brutal and dissonant, with some excellent snatches of melody and its very memorable. So far so good for that EP then. Watch here:

Employed to Serve are a nasty, angry band of angular mathcore/hardcore/grindcore/other fancy labels for brilliantly violent music. They are featured as Terrorizer’s Band of the Day, and with good reason. They are this explosive cocktail of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Pig Destroyer and Botch, all with a female vocalist who can rip throats with the best of them. Watch the video for Heavy Limbs here:

Finally, titanic duo of doom, Pombagira, have announced they are releasing a new record this year entitled ‘Flesh Throne Press’. It follows up from last year’s earth shaking ‘Maleficia Lamiah’. No music from it yet, but it should be good.
