Figured this was worth a thread...the almighty Fleshcrawl has finally gotten their shit together and will be releasing their first album since 2007's Structures of Death this November! Not sure what the general consensus about these guys is - you rarely see them mentioned these days, but I'm personally unbelievably excited for this...they're one of my favorite bands (and in the top 5 European death metal bands ever, in my book) and they were fucking amazing when I saw them live back in May. I own the band's entire discography, one of very few bands that have never slipped up or done anything I'd rank below "great", so hopefully that consistency will continue into this new album - the album cover and titles all look great (loving the updated logo), so I see no need to worry. Just hope they don't forget to include a lot of lyrics about "FLEEESSSH" this time around :P.

Also, a fun little bit of trivia - this will be the very first Fleshcrawl album to ever be (officially) pressed on vinyl, the only other release in their entire career was the band's very first 7" EP in 1991.

That's great. I had started thinking we'd never see anything again from this band. It's not my favourite genre now, but I loved this band when I was much younger. Hopefully it'll be worth the 12 year wait.

Fantastic! Song titles are slightly more original this time around too, oh I hope that's a sign of something a little different.. The more contemporary cover art styling and slightly tweaked logo as well..

Hope it's much better than SOD which was a huge letdown after the massive MOF.

New track:
Youtube: show


Pretty cool stuff - the riffs are killer, Sven sounds great and I really dig that they've brought back the dual-vocal attack, which brings me back to the Impurity and Bloodsoul era. Just nice, catchy, fist-pounding death metal! I was a little worried about the production when I learned Johnny Petterson was handling it (anyone hear his mixing job on that Ursinne album? Yikes :lol:) but that doesn't seem to be a problem here - sounds decent enough, way better than that 2015 split EP at least. I do think the lead guitar is maybe a bit too loud, but that's not a big deal and I'm far from a nitpicker when it comes to this kind of thing :).

That said, my only problem with the song itself is spoken word part at the end...it seems a little awkward, goes on too long and doesn't seem to add much to the song, however I'm hoping it at least makes sense in the context of the whole album. And at least melodic riff under it is pretty cool, so it's not all bad!

It's more punchy and "fun" than I'd expect from Fleshcrawl, not a fan.

Agree. Bands shouldn't do these sort of videos, adds nothing to the experience.

Well I like it a lot. The message in the song was very on point too and kind of refreshing to hear something that actually means something relevant to our current plight. I’ll be picking this up with no reservation.

Yeah, it feels like the song was supposed to be longer but they cut part of it out to make that spoken word part longer. It goes on way too long but the riff was pretty decent, certainly better than the rest of the song. Overall the song was pretty bad if I'm being honest. I hope this is not representative of the entire album. I did like the songs on the split with Skinned Alive so maybe not all hope is lost.
