Napalm Death’s “Time Waits For No Slave” music video might just be the wake-up call you need!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Napalm Death‘s Time Waits For No Slave was released earlier this year, but except for a few glowing reviews, I haven’t seen the album covered nearly as much as it deserves. Well, finally the grindcore legends have released their first music video for the album, and I’m hoping this nice little clip will give them enough push to get them back on the radar screen of all the music outlets that aren’t as dedicated to the extreme metal underground as we are here at Mind Inversion.

Sunday Metal Song: Darkest Hour, “No God”

Outside of Ringworm and BTBAM, this band is the only Victory Records band that I even pay attention to anymore. Period. Over the years, the label’s taste have seriously gone downhill, but they have managed to hang onto a select few of aggressive musics finest names (and the most extensive and respected hardcore back catalog in existence). After you download the sampler containing their newest song from their forthcoming release The Eternal Return (..their first release since the departure of shredder Kris Norris and a self-professed return to the aggression and speed of Hidden Hands..), I won’t have my feelings hurt if you delete all the other tracks. Scratch that – I actually recommend you delete the excess songs to focus on the thrashy goodness contained within this reintroduction to a band that has never let me down yet.

Sunday Metal Song: Kylesa, “Said and Done”

Kylesa just came to Minneapolis last week for a performance at the Fine Line, but with all the lavish attention thrown at Mastodon, it maybe was unfortunately too easy to overlook the incredible show that these Savannah, GA natives put on that night. This post is here to straighten out anyone who can admit to this shame.

“Said and Done” is a grandiose track that showcases all this brilliant band’s  best qualities; bombastic cascades of drum thunder are the anchor to some of the thickest guitar grooves this side of Entombed and enough nasty psychedelic metal embellishments to make anyone’s jaw drop. Kylesa is clearly firing on all cylinders these days, and they sound they best I’ve heard from them so far! Check it out for yourself – courtesy of SXSW.
