Death Grips – “Inanimate Sensation” (Video)

Death Grips drops a video single for the first track to be released from their forthcoming album, Jenny Death, which is also the second half of their yet-to-be-completed double album titled The Powers That B. I reviewed the first installment earlier this year.

While it is my job to keep a cool head, it’s hard not to be hyped for “Inanimate Sensation.” The revving group vocals, presumably live drums, and ear-searing synths all remind me of Death Grips’ early work–and sound just as exciting. It’s easily one of the most hard-hitting singles of 2014, and I’m hoping much of Jenny Death follows suit.

Sterilizer – Self-Titled

With Sterilizer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Brandon Duncan explores some incredibly harsh industrial metal.

Gazelle Twin – Anti Body EP

Previously mentioned musical oddity Gazelle Twin has a new EP out centered around one of the pivotal cuts from her new full-length album, Unflesh. “Anti Body” is an unsettling musical experience, featuring rigid, industrially tinged kick drums, and some eerily whispered lead vocals. For all it’s unorthodoxy, it’s actually somewhat catchy.

Check this track out, a b-side, and a few remixes via the embed above.

Sterilizer – Self-Titled

Ready yourself for some of the most crushing, distorted industrial metal you’ll hear this year! It comes from a one-man project by the name of Sterilizer, and this new self-titled album has some fantastically visceral riffs and drum beats all over it–even the instrumental tracks stay pretty engaging despite the lack of a lead vocal.

Hellish, rigid, and merciless: This is industrial distilled to its core elements, and then executing them immaculately.

Godflesh – World Lit Only By Fire

Godflesh hits the reset button and gets back to their roots on their first album in over a decade.

Paula Temple – “DEATHVOX”

This Paula Temple track is about to make me lose it! Seriously!

This electronic music producer currently hails from Berlin, and the track embedded above is the first cut off her new EP on R&S Records. It’s a primal presentation of techno and industrial rhythms. These beats are encased in some distorted, shrill synth leads and monolithic vocal manipulations. It sounds too primeval to be new, but too synthetic to come from the stone age. A sonic anachronism!

I can vibe with any producer who can successfully conjure some raw, visceral rhythms, and Paula is showing a real knack for that already! Try out the b-side of the EP right here.

The Bug – Angels & Devils

The Bug delivers a new album that reads more like two decent EPs.

Sudanim – “Pleasure Flood”

A piece of chilling auditory excellence from producer, dj, and co-head of Her Records, Sudanim. The track is absolutely freaky, and manages to stir some really frightening emotions in its 3-minute runtime.

I’m loving the metallic, primal rhythms, for one. It’s like a combination of a factory floor machinery and the kind of drum circles you’d only find in the thickest of jungles. On top of this, Sudanim lays some incredibly twisted, high-pitched wails that I could even begin to guess the origin of.

I’m not sure where all of this is coming from, but hell is clearly where it’s going! Enjoy.

i.o – Edit Architect

Get ready for a challenging listen on this one! This i.o album titled Edit Architect is a dense, tangled web of multi-tracked guitars, relentless drums, and whatever other glitches this Victoria-based bedroom recording project manages to throw into the works.

It’s like a fusion of free jazz, math rock, and the avant-garde. Give a listen and enjoy!

Godflesh – Decline and Fall EP

Famed industrial metal outfit Godflesh is back with a new EP, which I understand is just a taster for an album that’s to come later this year titled A World Lit Only By Fire. It’ll be the band’s first record in over ten years, and they’re sounding heavier than ever on this new EP, so I’m seeing no reason to be disappointed so far! Enjoy!
