Weekly Wretched: Belial - Nihil Est

The time has finally arrived - it's feels like it has been a long, long time coming, but Nihil Est, the new sophomore EP from UK's BELIAL has finally landed, and it's exactly what we've been waiting for. I'll go as far as to say that "Nihil Est" is one of my top anticipated albums that we knew was coming out this year, and as a far from the very beginning of this band, I can only give pure love and praise to the Belial boys for the job they did on this one. It's a work of art; a heavy, brutal, and intense work of art. Let's dive right in to it... Nihil Est. The new EP from the Belial boys has 15 total tracks, 5 of which are instrumental versions. The album kicks off with "In Extremis," a cra

Saturday Morning Sickness: ABACABB

Welcome to the all new bi-weekly feature here at Soulless, Saturday Morning Sickness! Over the course of the past fifteen years or so, so many good bands have come and gone. The days of Myspace Metal have come and gone, and with it, so many names and albums that - at the time - defined the scene. There is just so much music out there today (which is a good thing!) that it's so easy to forget some of the bands who inspired a lot of what the deathcore and death metal scene are today. So the fun in Saturday Morning Sickness is to bring BACK those albums and bands (and often one hit wonders!) to rediscover some of the great heavy fucking metal that kicked so much ass way back when. To kick off t

New Vulvodynia "Flesh Tailor" Music Video

The new music video/horror short from South Africa's legendary slam metal band VULVODYNIA is now online; and it's bloody fantastic. The video is for the song "Flesh Tailor" off their latest album Psychosadistic Design, and the band says its just the first of a series of music videos from the album. Most fans of slam will already be very familiar with the song, but make sure you don't miss the video - it takes the brutality of the song to a whole new level. It definitely set a high standard for these next videos from Vulvodynia, who also say they have a ton of touring planned for the upcoming year, so be sure to visit their Facebook to follow up with that! But now, head over to MetalInjection

Blair Witch

The Blair Witch Project premiered exactly 18 years ago today at the Sundance Film Festival - and still to this day, the movie is often disputed by countless horror fanatics who all either love or despise the film. Regardless of which side of the fence you find yourself, one thing is for certain: the films have left a legacy behind which is right up there with the greats of Scream, Saw, and Paranormal Activity. Now, nearly two decades later, the Blair Witch is back, brutal, and better than ever. "Blair Witch" opened in theaters back in September 2016, with an opening weekend grossing $9.7 million. It is, of coarse, the third film in the Blair Witch franchise, however it is a direct sequel to

Weekly Wretched: Aversions Crown - Xenocide

Call me crazy, but aliens and metal go together like peas and carrots, and there's been a growing number of bands that bring the concept of aliens into the metal genre and it's such a beautiful combination. Whether it is the crazy ass Rings of Saturn guys who have riffs that sound alien or songs by Oceano or Harvest Misery that are about alien takeovers, aliens have infiltrated heavy metal. Australia's Aversions Crown dropped their new album "Xenocide" on Friday, and it's a perfect combination of aliens and deathcore filthiness. The twelve track album released on Nuclear Blast, is a heavy hitting masterpiece of pure brutality. The instrumental intro track "Void" almost braces you for the war

New TAIM, Human Error, & more!

This past week saw some pretty heavy hitters dropping new songs - but the most popular by far has to go to Thy Art Is Murder. The news hit the internet shortly after the band got on stage at UNIFY, the legendary music festival held in Australia. The band was rejoined by former vocalist CJ McMahon, who left the band a while back to take care of some shit going on in his own life. CJ has since gone on to say that he kinda became a mess, and needed some time to do some soul searching and get his life back together. But the band have formally announced his return to Thy Art, and what better way to celebrate the return of one of the faces of the scene than with a new song! "No Absolution" has wri

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, New York

Popularized by recent television and film productions the past few years, the name Sleepy Hollow is becoming more and more of a household name, and the popularity has certainly drawn attention to the small New York town. But for those only familar with the new school television show and not so much the real history of the town, there's plenty to learn about the historic landmark that's just a stones throw from New York City. "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a short story written by American author Washington Irving, which he published amidst 33 other essays in his collection called "The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent." The book dates all the way back to 1819 and 1820, when Sleepy Hollo

A Series of Unfortunate Events

This past Friday was one of the most dreaded days of the year - Friday the 13th. And with it, came a new short series from Netflix that many, many people waited patiently for: A Series of Unfortunate Events. While the story may stray from the horror genre, it is most definitely a rather depressing, macabre, and intentionally dulling story. For those who are unfamiliar with the story, three children - known throughout the series as the Baudelaires, are sent to the beach on a dark and gloomy day by their parents, where they learn from an incompetent banker that their parents perished in a house fire, which destroyed everything the children owned. The children are then brought to their "closest

Weekly Wretched: Begging for Incest - Finsternis

Each Monday at Soulless, the Weekly Wretched will feature one extreme metal album we'd like to suggest for you to jam for the week. For the premier of the Weekly Wretched, we'd like to feature BEGGING FOR INCEST! Based out of Cologne, Germany, Begging for Incest are a brutal death metal trio who who have about ten years worth of history behind them. Their new album, "Finsternis" was released on October 21st on Rising Nemesis Records, and is ten gut wrenching tracks of exquisite heavy fucking metal. Th

"Prismatic Abyss" by Aversions Crown Now Streaming!

Australia has been fucking killing the deathcore game the past few years. With bands such as Thy Art Is Murder, The Red Shore, Boris The Blade, Make Them Suffer, and A Night in Texas, Australia is leaving the rest of the world in the dust as it claims the deathcore throne for its self. One of Australia's most notorious bands - Aversions Crown - have a new record entitled "Xenocide" coming out in just six short days. With less than a week to go until Xenocide is released to the masses, the band premiered a new fucking mental music video and song, "Prismatic Abyss."

Friday the 13th!

Happy Friday the 13! Today marks the first of two Friday the 13th's that we will be celebrating in 2017 - the second being in October, which is fitting since I've always considered it the baby brother of my personal favorite, Halloween! We all know it's a day filled with horror movies, trouble making, and thirteen dollar tattoos - but where exactly did the concept of Friday the 13th come from, anyway?! (Un)luckily for you - we did some research to find out! Believe it or not, the fear of the number 13 actually has a name - triskaidekaphobia! It seems as though there has always been a superstition of the number 13, as well as Fridays, but before the 19th century, there was no record of a fear

The Culture of Death

"Death this! Death that! What is your OBSESSION with death?!" Hang out on the Soulless website for more than a few minutes, and you'll quickly learn we do kinda talk about death a lot, don't we? I mean, our whole ideology is literally based about our inspiration from death. But why death?! How does someone even become obsessed with death? I know how cliche it is to say that I've always been drawn to the topic, but honestly, I've always been drawn to the topic. Flash back to 2002 when "Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls," the debut album by the Murderdolls came out on Roadrunner. I distinctly remember begging my mom to drive me to my local record store to pick up a copy on release day. By

Case Study: Charles Manson

Charles Manson has been in the news this past week after he was reportedly moved from his prison cell to a hospital for a few days. TIME reports that Manson has since been returned to his prison cell to continue serving his nine concurrent life sentence for the 1969 Tate Murders. Charles Manson is certainly a name some of the older Soulless readers may know, but for the younger crowd who may not be aware of the crazy whirlwind that is Manson - let me throw this at you. Charles Manson is serving a life sentence and he wasn't even convicted of actually committing a murder himself? How could that be? You guessed it - conspiracy, and the cult known as the Manson Family. Charles Manson was born i

The Heavy Metal Genre War

For those of us who are actively a part of the online metal community - be it through social media, metal websites such as Lambgoat or Metalsucks, or even YouTube - the genre war is something you can't escape. It fills comment sections, floods message boards, and for some people, is the one true god. The Heavy Metal Genre War is both a blessing and a fucking curse. If you are not aware of what exactly I'm referencing here, it's the dissection of bands sound and applying labels to it. Sounds pretty basic, right? It's easy to listen to a bands like The Used or AC/DC and say what genre their music would fall under. But metal is different in this aspect. Years ago, there was just good ol' fashio

Case Study: The Amityville Murders

For the first murder case study for Soulless, it feels it would only be appropriate to feature the murders that happened just down the street from the Soulless Headquarters: The Amityville murders. It is arguably one of the most notorious murder cases in modern day America, being the basis for a plethora of movies and books. But for those who may not know the true facts about the case, you're in for a doozy. Date: November 13, 1974 Place: Amityville, Long Island, New York Victims: 6 Ronald Defeo Jr, who was 23 years old at the time, led a group of bar patrons to his house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville after proclaiming in the bar that he found both of his parents dead. Upon arriving at t

Top 10 Metal Albums of 2016

2016 came and went in the blink of an eye - and with it came a flash flood of brutal music. The metal genre saw a ton of incredible releases , no matter what style of metal you're a fan of. We here at Soulless figured what's a better way to start off the new year and our new site than a list of our top deathcore, death metal, and slam albums of the past year! Let's dig in, shall we?! 10. NAILS - YOU WILL NEVER BE ONE OF US. Nails is one band you can always guarantee will be heavy, in your face, and invoke the most violent of tendencies from the listener. And their June release of You Will Never Be One Of Us certainly doesn't lead us astray. From beginning to end, the album only actually runs
