Preview The Harvest Wombs

If you’re a fan of bands like The Faceless, Between the Buried and Me, and Cynic you have to check out Fallujah. Born right in our own backyard, these dudes from San Francisco write some seriously impressive tunes.  They’ve posted two of their songs from the forthcoming debut The Harvest Wombs (coming out Nov. 22 on Unique Leader Records). “Become One” features Francesco Artusato of fellow Bay Area shredders All Shall Perish.

BAMF Spotlight: Behold the Desecration

Every week, Wrecked will be highlighting bands playing the upcoming Bay Area Metal Festival. This week we’re melting your face off with Behold the Desecration from San Jose, CA.

For fans of Job for a Cowboy, Black Dahlia Murder, All Shall Perish, etc.

Don’t listen to Behold the Desecration if you like the way your face looks. Don’t listen to these guys if you’re in a nursery or china shoppe. Lastly, don’t listen to Behold the Desecration if you like you’re trying to currently undergoing psychological testing to prove you’re not insane. Why not? None of the scenarios I mentioned can handle the brutality BtD brings, and I’m not sure you can either. These guys like to take it straight to your face, with blistering fast drums, an insane level of shredding, and songs so punishingly brutal you’ll need to pick your stomach off the floor because you’ll have just thrown it up from this music kicking you in the balls so fucking hard. In all seriousness, if you’re a fan of extreme/death metal, you need to hear these guys, and you’ll need to see them live at BAMF this July.

Going Beyond Expectations With Beyond The Gate

For fans of: The Faceless, Between the Buried and Me, Through the Eyes of the Dead, The Black Dahlia Murder, Opeth, All Shall Perish, etc.

Every so often, I walk into a record store with the intent of finding something new. Not just some new run of the mill band that plays the same riffs I’ve heard a dozen times already, but something entirely new. Well, something led me to pick up Wretched’s Beyond the Gate on a whim, and it was definitely one of my favorite and most dynamic albums of 2010.  And, no, it’s not just because they shared all but two letters as the name of our site.
