2023 release. Despite Harm's Way's reputation for unrelenting brutality, Common Suffering surprises at several turns with quieter moments of well thought out songwriting that emphasize light and shade. It's their understanding of how to effectively orchestrate these dynamics that makes an already ironclad record feel infinitely more merciless. This is Harm's Way at the top of their game - the ambitious sound of a band traversing new ideas. The key to the success may be a shift to recording at Studio 4 in Pennsylvania with producer Will Yip (Turnstile, Nothing). Going into the recording, the goal was to improve some of the band's processes, examine vocal cadences and experiment during production to gain the best idea from each track. The first change dealt with refocusing members on their specific wheelhouses. While Pligge had previously assisted with riffs, on this effort, his main objective was to ensure the perfect vocal attack- leaning into Yip for advice and letting the remainder of the band take the wheel with their respective parts. The result is each player pushing to the far reaches and creating material that has previously never been colonized by any band, or hardcore writ large, before.

Since 1988, Cannibal Corpse have been at the forefront of death metal, shaping and defining the genre, creating a seminal, incomparable body of work over the following decades. In 2021 they raised the stakes again with their 15th album, Violence Unimagined, growing ever more complex and intense, and in 2023 theyreturnwith its successor, the equally monstrous Chaos Horrific, starting a new chapter in their legacy. Written shortly after the conclusion of the Violence Unimagined sessions (due to the pandemic keeping them off tour), echoes of that album exist in Chaos Horrific, but this is a whole new beast of its own. To me this album feels sort of like a continuation of Violence Unimagined. The style is quite similar, but individually none of the songs on Chaos Horrific sound like songs on Violence Unimagined, says bassist Alex Webster. Its a full-on death metal album, Cannibal Corpse style.

3teeth

Endex

CD: $12.98 Buy

In the post-pandemic desolation of Los Angeles, 3teeth re-materialize as an enigmatic force of cybernetic entropy, unveiling their most incisive revelation of technosocial disintegration ever: EndEx. Alexis Mincolla, the cryptic provocateur and his accomplices escalate their own sonic insurgency with the bewildering rupture of the vanguard single, "Merchant of the Void." Delving into the commodification of identity, hyper-consumerism, and the primacy of technology as drivers of ideology and human behavior, they lay bare the foundations of our disintegrating reality. The ensuing sonic shockwaves reverberate through drone-guided offensives, such as the explosive "Slum Planet," "Higher Than Death," and a phantasmagoric reimagining of Tears for Fears' seminal "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." Endex epitomizes 3teeth's transmutation of industrial metal into a hyperstitional era, unleashing a memetic plague of esoteric theory-fiction.
