Swedish death metallers As You Drown are streaming a brand new track online, from their new album Rat King, coming in October through Metal Blade. ‘You Should Be Paranoid’ can be heard below.
Like the material of its 2009 predecessor Reflection, this new song is a thick heavy of death metal with a modern sheen. The influence of the band’s imperative fellow countrymen, the likes of Unleashed and At The Gates, is written all over As You Drown but it’s the sound of contemporary death metal in a different generation. Have a listen for yourself:

And to get a flavour of what we’re talking about HERE is the band’s singer talking annoyingly over a snippet of the album. Stupidly, embedding is disabled on the clip, so also have a look at the full album package, which includes the all-important gag reel!
In other news, this is the 600th post on The Grind That Annoys. Thanks Envinity...

Meanwhile, Mel Mongeon’s vocals are as caustic and corrosive as ever with the wall of riffs and unyielding drumming still being utterly pummelling, as if you would expect anything less, but the song clocks in at slightly longer time than usual. Listen to the track below and also check out the artwork for Die Miserable, which is released on October 11th.

New York prog rockers 3 will release their new album, The Ghost You Gave To Me next month through Metal Blade. It is the long awaited follow-up to 2007’s The End is Begun album and Revisions in 2009, an album that saw a re-working of older material. The band is streaming the song ‘Numbers’ now, which is a beast to say the least, opening methodically only to erupt with heaving riffs and Joey Eppard’s absolutely distinct vocals. Have a listen to song below now.
